There already is a great medieval warfare game, albeit not FPS...its called M&B Warband and it has a very healthy multiplayer community and is just goddamn fun.

It's a very simple roguelike, even the additions he plans on adding don't expand the game much. $50,000 for developing it - not counting sales? Gotta love kickstarters

Is this like GW1 with its generic loot that keeps everyone on the same playing field?

I felt like the game was holding my hand trying to avoid making any major loot changes that could cause balance issues with other players, so everyone gets the same generic shit.

This changed a bit with the EotN expansion - but I'm wondering if its back to GW1 original style where loot is pretty much meaningless

GFWL is not behaving properly - it is still very much a piece of shit and is my biggest complaint. I have trouble summoning people because of it and getting it up and running (I run a local account for GTA4 so it was a pain to do account switching for online) was annoying as hell.

Besides that - port works great for me on my ps3 controller. The graphics are so sharp now, I own it on PS3 as well and I could not even play it on that console because it is so blurry.

Also GFWL client refuses to quit sometimes - have to kill the process after the game shuts down, and it keeps seperate resident processes in memory (WLIDSVC and its counterpart) at all times to stay "online". Nobody should be defending this shit.

Fair warning, the game requires a gamepad, use an xbox or ps3 controller. Again - REQUIRES A GAMEPAD - it shouldn't even work without one but they were stupid enough to half ass it and let you try.

I'm not saying it couldn't be done great in K&M, plenty of other games show it could. Fact is, it doesn't work that way atm - don't torture yourself trying.

I'm not having any issues with the HD fix installed - of course the messages cant be read but hes working on that and luckily I know the game so they don't matter much.

Runs smooth so far, everyone wants to see the "blighttown test", so that will be interesting, but so far no problems with performance and the controls work great with ps3 controller.

Part of the problem, however, is not just item drops, but the variety of things to do within the game. Many of you have stated that there needs to be more to the game than just the item hunt, and we agree completely.

This statement is incredible. It pretty much sums up what is wrong with this game and the shift in focus towards exactly that.

One more thing about SD - I just tried my PS3 controller and I am impressed at the implementation, every button is mapped perfectly already and I might as well be playing on PS3 with much better graphics.

Game looks pretty good on my PC...like the others, I don't care for the K&M controls - they are playable for sure but don't feel right.

I've only played about 4 hours so far, don't care much for the driving...

GTA4 might have gone overboard with the weight and control of its vehicles, this is the exact opposite - feels a bit too disconnected and physics are barely there.

Also I really hate that "ramming" button while driving. It looks so stupid when I'm going 60mph and all the sudden I slide sideways into the car next to me without any change in forward direction.

Mostly hand-to-hand fighting which is very well done, haven't gotten a firearm yet but the knives/crowbars are beast and the fighting is realistic which is awesome.

When you are on foot this game is top notch - vehicles are not its strong point, at least imo.

It's essentially the same game from OP: Flash to Arma as far as the controls/interface goes. I don't see how you can hate one and love the other for that.

Arma has a phenomenal strategy-multiplayer mode where armies vie for control of an island. You can build defenses, buy any vehicles, and control your own small army along with others in the game. Once I learned how, I was positioning tanks/men and sending supply trucks all over the map while I flew my helicopter over hotzones and unloaded rockets into the enemy positions. Nothing else can offer this and it actually works very well - I had a ton of fun back when it came out.

Haven't tried Dayz yet because it was hard enough with my own small army - going alone? That sounds almost torturous.

It is kind of sad how bad the legendary items are, how random they are. I won't play this game because they are probably going to fix this and that means any item drops before these patches will not be retroactively "enhanced".

Once they fix their stupid items I will try it again.

This game will improve with age, wait it out for now.

Don't expect a big pricedrop anytime soon though, Diablo 2+exp had a standard price of $39.99 till what - about 2010?

I was going to go buy it but I decided to check the internet first...now I realize I'm buying an MMORPG and I'm having second thoughts.
