Glad to know that you're smarter than the 🐐 Remake Team in the industry, they probably don't know what they're doing.

Can't wait for Ps6 keynote, hopefully to see you there 💪🏻
Dude, relax. No need to rub it in. I'm sometimes annoyed by VGXVet as much as a next guy but the man admitted that he was wrong.
Damn that's why we can't have nice things - lack of charity towards each other.

Has anybody played the next gen versions? Seen if it's locked 60 or fluctuating?

I just finished up the enhanced edition on PS5.

It all seemed like a locked 60fps.

On certain instances if you or your opponent gets caught in a trap, the animation looks like it transitions to 30fps. So it all looks a little jarring as you or your enemy breaks free.

Other than that, all smooth.

Just picked it up. Really enjoying it.

Struggled for the first hour or so as I thought the harden ability was like a parry. Now I realise you can simply hold it, game makes much more sense.

A lot of fun.

I think they’ve been open for a while. The standard edition got a price drop as well on a bunch of sites. At least the physical did. Shame they didn’t go steelbook on this deluxe.

So what is CPU doing ? Staying idle all time long ? Do these devs even try ? There are supposed to reduce resolution, not framerate...

its indictation that the framerate is bound to GPU and not CPU

aparently the dev prioritize resolution here, the GPU is taking more time to render so they fix it to 30 fps to avoid problems

Ah, they're still issuing patches for frame rates. Good, good. Hopefully that'll mean they'll look into DRS for the PS5.

They made a 60fps patch for Series S. Nice to see them acknowledge the problem and actually deliver something respectful of the buyers.

I bought this today on the Epic sale and if things don't get better it's going to be one of my most regretful purchases. Even though it's only $10, this is a prime example of why I use Steam when I can. The refund system is awesome. Devs should embrace it because I take a lot more chances on games and rarely end up refunding them.

Is there a video or guide that shows me how to enjoy this thing? The camera is loosy goosy. Atmosphere is dreary and boring. It's using the old 360 gen piss filter it seems. I honestly think Blighttown looks better than the opening swamp in Mortal Shell.

Did this game click for anyone after being really disappointed at first?

Finished the Enhanced Edition today on PS5 and the game is pretty glitchy.
The final boss was a total mess 😅

It sucks that The Rotting Christ dlc doesn't work on PS5.

Still I did find the game pretty enjoyable indie Soulslike with a couple of good original ideas. Glad it was short and sweet. The lore was pretty much a mumbo jumbo for me.
I hope they'll make a sequel with a bigger team and budget.

Ive been playing on XSX and havent noticed any FPS drops. This is a native port, required to be installed to SSD. It has upgraded textures too. Its a great upgrade. Here is a vid of it next to Demon Souls
The comparison is totally unfair. Ofc Mortall Shell feels cheaper and less polished, but it's still a good game and worth playing for a souls fan.
