Remnant 2 vs ROG Ally – An Unexpected Disappointment

Hey fellow gamers, let’s talk about the recent launch of Remnant 2. To be blunt, it has been rough. Like, really rough. This was supposed to be an exciting addition to our game libraries, but instead, it’s turned into an absolute headache. While the game is playable on the Steam Deck, trying to play on the Ally has proven to be a nightmare. Read on and I’ll give you the scoop about this mess.

Now, when it comes to gaming, we all know the joy of launching a game for the first time. That anticipation you feel as the loading screen pops up and the thrill of diving into a new world. Well, in the case of Remnant 2, it was more like a crash landing, and I mean that literally.

The game crashed within seconds of starting the tutorial. Restart, reload, and… six more crashes later, I was still trying to get through the tutorial. Not the best start to what should have been an epic gaming session, right?

I’ve got to tell you, I’ve played a ton of games over the years, everything from FH5, Diablo 4, and COD: MW2, and they all run like a dream. But Remnant 2? It’s been a total letdown. It’s one thing to have minor bugs in a new release, but this is next level.

It seems the game desperately needs a patch and fast! It has serious performance issues and is badly optimized. It’s even worse when you look at the graphics. Even with the settings at low, the game looks like pixelated mush when using FSR.

And to be clear, this isn’t a hardware issue. Plenty of modern AAA games run smoothly on the ROG Ally. So, the fact that Remnant 2 is struggling to even run is a serious cause for concern.

Listen, I’m not one to shy away from a game with low visuals or even lower FPS, but Remnant 2 really takes the cake. It’s disappointing because the gameplay, when it does manage to run, is actually pretty good.

Despite all this, there’s a glimmer of hope. Some players have shared that adjusting VRAM to 6GB or 8GB can help with the crashing issue. It did help a bit in my case, but in the end, the game still crashes after roughly 10 minutes. Besides, we shouldn’t have to find workarounds for a game that should work out of the box.

Now, before you go spending your hard-earned cash on this game, please wait. The game is in dire need of patching and optimization. Give it a bit of time. Let’s hope the developers address these issues sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, stay tuned here for all the latest updates and possible fixes for Remnant 2. And remember, we’re in this together. Game on!

Remember, folks, gaming is supposed to be a fun experience, not a frustrating one. So if a game isn’t running the way it should speak up, share your experience, and let’s keep developers accountable. Because at the end of the day, it’s us gamers who make the gaming world go round!
