I bought a laptop a few months ago with wicked specs and this game runs very poorly. I have a buddy pass, my g/f bought the collector's ed. From the start, it's edgy, the game runs 1-2 seconds than skips ahead to catch itself. I've tried lowering most settings with no improvement. When talking to the starter quest chick, that room took about 3 minutes to load all the NPC's. While running, my character takes 1-2 steps and then the screen pauses for a split second and it catches itself. I feel like there's a strobe light effect going on.
Is this a flaw in the game they are planning on fixing and is everybody playing through these terrible conditions? I watched my g/f play the beta and it wasn't this bad. Yesterday trying to play the game was agonizing at how slow it went. Her computer is even more maxed out with specs than mine and hers doesn't run fluidly. We have other PC games that run flawlessly. So why does this new game suck so bad?
