Loving DA:I. I can't recommend it enough.

You and others got a sale out of me, and that's saying something. I'd pretty much written it off until the reviews showed up.


I doubt you'll regret it. It's an excellent game. Just don't stay in the Hinterlands. Get in, do the main mission, do a few side quests to get 4 power, then get out.

Hehe, yeah I saw that. It's pretty clear they meant for this to be a "get your feet wet for 30 minutes or so, then move on to the cooler parts."

I'm enjoying myself in the Hinterlands because I love to wander around and gawk at all the beautiful, BEAUTIFUL shit it's got in it, and I like the combat, but I'll agree the quests there are mostly boring as hell.

It's fun to crawl around dilapidated castles and dungeons though.

Loving DA:I. I can't recommend it enough.

Set a reminder on your PC so that Gary Numan's Cars starts playing on repeat on that day so you'll remember...if you're not too busy dancing to it instead.

Everybody dances to Gary Numan!

Selling 100 bucks worth of bullshit points and only having 44 bucks worth of shit to buy. Congrats Ubisoft. You've now passed EA as the worst pieces of shit in gaming.

I'm never buying another one of your games unless it's five bucks. Fuck you.

Yeah, like I said, I'd have left the hinterlands before except I want to save Val Royeaux for when I'm on my shiznits graphics PC. So in the meantime I'm just running around the Hinterlands clearing some stuff up, but I've pretty much come to the end of the doable stuff now. Everything left open is lvl 12.

News Comments > Elite: Dangerous Refunds Reconsidered
2. Re: Elite: Dangerous Refunds Reconsidered Nov 21, 2014, 17:43 Creston
 
If FD genuinely got like 60 million bucks in investor funds, why make such a big deal out of this? Presumably only 10% or so of people wanted a refund, which means you'd be out of ~ 200K.

Most marketoids would tell you that 200K is not a bad price to pay to avoid the kind of terrible, terrible PR you've been dumping all over yourself, and just saying "We made a promise, we didn't keep it, we'll offer everyone who wants one a refund" is fantastic PR that immediately puts you back into everyone's good graces.

Doesn't seem that difficult to figure out (unless they didn't get that 60M that people were talking about, then 200K is probably a rough hit.)

Even so, it reflects poorly on Kickstarted games.

I would think they'd be more worried about the claims that DA:I is wrecking SSD drives...

At first I was concerned about that too, but it turns out to be a disreputable claim by Russian crackers. Read the comments in that thread. Also TB talked about it in his performance review saying it wasn't a credible claim.

Good to know.

Yeah, don't worry about that. I checked it on my SSD, and Verno checked it on his, and there's zero truth to that claim. It's just nonsense.

there's also no day/night cycle, and relevant scheduling for NPCs... which is much more immersion breaking

but its still a really fun game

I really miss a day/night cycle. It would have been so gorgeous in the game...

So the DA:I camera stays pointed forward no matter which direction your character is facing/moving, with your mouse cursor free to click on things in the world or UI at the same time? Which means you have to hold a mouse button to turn the camera or (usually) hold the other to keep the camera centered behind you while you turn your character? That actually is a fairly common control scheme... I've done it for a couple thousand hours in GW2 alone, but it doesn't bother me at all. Though that's primarily because you rarely hold either mouse button down persistently for prolonged periods of time. In fact, I don't know why you would need to do so. Blank

GW2. THAT'S the game that also does it! I knew it was something I'd played recently! DA:O and DA2 also do it.

But for some people who suffer from RSI, it can be a pretty damn painful experience.

Yeah exactly, people really shouldn't get hung up on completing every single thing they come across. A lot of it isn't even intended to be completed right away.

I came SOOOOO fucking close to killing the level 12 rift with my level 6 party...

For those who have just started, I thought this was a pretty in-your-face explanation of why you should not stay in the Hinterlands


Still there myself, but that's because I'm playing at work on medium to high settings, and i want to save Val Royeaux for tonight when I can see it on Ultra+FT

That's actually a really clever way of fighting the NSA. Good luck to him, he's going up against some very powerful opponents.

Nah, it wouldn't work. While states actually do have this power, what happens is that if they start fucking around like that, the Feds just shut down the state's funding for things like interstates etc.

There's no point in petty shit like that. One of these grandstanding lawmakers needs to grow some balls and drag the fucking NSA before the Supreme Court.

Comcast is a piece of worthless shit, and they will undoubtedly fuck this up somehow, but IF it works, it'd actually be a great service.

How often have all of us been stuck at home waiting for some cunt technician / installer / delivery guy to show up and just sit there and wait and wait and wait for hours on end? This would actually be an effective tool to deal with that issue.

(of course, just as effective would just be to CALL a person to say "Hey, we're 30 minutes out." )

Btw, saw this ad on the sidebar, and clicked it, and it's a pretty cool video about a really well done Vivienne cosplay.

(also, I'm sure that the misogyny crowd will jump on my neck for this, but that girl is really darn cute.)
