Swapping to DX12 fixed my only issue with the game (the performance). Now getting a solid 80-100 fps with my 2060. Really having a blast with this. Bout to start true vault hunter and man gearbox really nailed what worked it BL2 and amplified it. The guns are by far the biggest improvement and the missions feel far more varied and less fetch quest. Vehicles work better and everything is much more customizable and character have tons of builds that are valid now. Overall game is really freaking good.

It went down four points, and from a review perspective, an 81 is much less appealing then an 85.

Obsidian lost it's bonus because of 1 less review point for New Vegas, so don't pretend that a 4 isn't a steep drop. An 81 is a "strong" an 85 is a "mighty" on opencritic.
I'm not pretending, it really isnt that big of a drop, it went from the average marking it as a "great" game to still being a "great" game.

Not sure what you're trying to say with the Obsidian reference since New Vegas went on to ship 5 million copies just a month after release and has sold over 12 million copies. Clearly consumers on the whole didnt care that it "only" had an 84 on metacritic.

Bethesda still gets flak for that whole bonus thing too, even though it happened 9 years ago.
