I'm not sure how this is a "transphobic" joke.

The man intended to have sex with a woman. The woman was a man pretending to be a woman.
How are you this oblivious. It's a joke at transgender people's expense, and if I were a transgender woman I would find this joke really offensive too. Not only does it deny transgender people's identity (hello what even is gender), it also implies that suicide is preferable to intimacy with those transgender freaks. If you can't see how that's offensive you've got a serious empathy deficiency.

Majority of jokes are at the expense of someone in one way or another. They are however jokes. Some in good taste, some in bad. You don't have to laugh.

When do we start to get upset at things that make fun of straight white males?

Watch GTA V at 60FPS in a video that's playing at 30FPS.

Uhh, see how it lists "60" after the resolution options for the video? Every noticed that on YouTube? It means the video is running at 60fps, not 30 fps.

How about removing GFWL from Op Flashpoint Red River?


Just a wild guess, but I'm thinking Op Flashpoint is a dead IP while Dirt series isn't and I believe they already have Dirt 4 on the way. If Dirt 3 MP wasn't updated that would piss off many people that may skip the next game.

Witcher 2 absolutely, because it's a great game. Witcher 1... eh. I mean, I liked it, but it was definitely quirky and it had some areas that were just a giant fucking CHORE to play through (whoever designed that fucking swamp should be forced to spend two weeks in said swamp, naked and tied to a fucking submerged log...)

Maybe they did, lol. Untouched swamps can be quite daunting/dangerous places to traipse through. There are some early tricks to "The Swamp" area early on though, that make the going a bit easier (which involves grinding against Cockatrices in a certain cave to level 30-35, and also retrieving a certain free sword by luring out Wyverns in another 'certain area' one at a time). Accomplishing those two things makes The Swamp and by extension the rest of the game a cake walk as you come out of The Swamp a hulking beast of a Witcher by overleveling.

Right, but then you're swapping the grind in the swamp for the grind against the cockatrices, and it doesn't make the swamp any less annoying to travel through.

(I did actually grind the cockatrices for awhile when I saw how much XP they gave. I did a few grinds against very xp-high monsters, so all in all the game wasn't too hard, it's just that that swamp area was so freaking irritating...)


From the small and linear outdoor areas in TW2, you start to miss exploring the swamp in TW.

Seriously? You've been around here long enough to know that the majority of the people around here are 30+.

Well I'm sitting at 53 hrs in my The Witcher 2 play-through and about 1 hour into Chapters 3 (before the game crashed on me yet again).

While I'm super stoked for the new game, if Witcher 3 is 90% cutscenes and conversations like TW2 is, then I may just skip it (no not really). I actually prefer TW1 over TW2 at this point when it comes to gameplay.

There isn't enough gameplay in TW2. While the production values went way up in TW2, the amount of actual gameplay went way down. The outdoor areas are so small and confined, there is very little exploring to do.

Now I understand why people were grumbling about learning the combat when the game first came out. There is very little sustained combat and impossible to get any sort of rhythm going. This would be why they had to introduce the Arena in a later patch.

I've avoided most videos and stuff for the game, so maybe my concerns would be alleviated by watching them...but they really need to have more actual gameplay, fighting of monsters and men.

I don't know when I'll find the time, but I'm already sorta planning a Dark mode playthrough of TW2 to play the alternate storyline.

So your first premise is that I'm crying because I'm complaining about a bug. Then you go on to say all RPG's have a shit load of bugs, which is certainly a giant blanket of bullshit. So you just bend over and accept a load of bugs in your RPG's? Man, talk about indoctrinated.
It's not a giant blanket of BS though.. Most RPGs have many bug fixes in the first patch or even the first few patches sometimes. With such a large world and tons of quests there are always things the developers miss.

So quantify your statement. Let me see your statistics.

And this would be why people put you on ignore. Don't be a dick.

You know full well there are no "statistics" on the matter. So why ask for them if not to just be a dick?

Use your common sense, personal experience and experiences you have read about around the net for the last 20+ years. RPG's (even great ones) are inherently known for having a lot of bugs, particularly at release.

I could name a dozen or two off the top of my head that were bug-ridden at release. It would be far more difficult to name an RPG that was polished with little to no bugs at release.

It just baffles me that people keep throwing large amounts of money at this game.
$250 for a single ship in a game? I don't care how much disposable income you have...that's just dumb. If I'm correct people have spent far far more than just a few hundred bucks on ships too.

Oh well, it's not something they will ever see money from me for.

Ya I skipped Painkiller and this is the first I remember it's physics beings referred to.

I think what he is referring to was the rag dolls and how they reacted to your weapons. ie: stake gun pinning bodies to walls.

But the rest of the game had little to no environment interaction with minimal physics use there, so I completely disagree with his comparison.

I so want to play this, but I'm right smack in the middle of Chapter 2 of The Witcher 2. I also think I figured out my missing 'Faery' book problem in Divinity Original Sin, so I may finally be able to finish the game.

Once those 2 are complete, then I can consider Pillars. And when is Torment supposed to be released? I backed that one, I didn't back Pillars.

I've got 20 million gold and it just keeps climbing.

20 Million gold is nothing. That'll be gone with a bunch of gem combines or enchants.

The devs seem to be going from one extreme to the next. First when RoS launched gold was somewhat scarce (unless you carried over billions from 1.8). Then they increased gold drops and added in the Vault, etc. If you get a few Vaults and goblin packs you will have several hundred million gold and never have to worry about it again.

I'm sure they are working on ways to make use of excess gems and to make gold more useful, and have even stated as such briefly in the past (when people were upset over the enchant gem change with no way to break down previously combined gems). My guess though is we won't see anything like this until the next expansion. How best to solve the excess gem problem, than to make the ones we have now obsolete.

Controller feels superior to keyboard+mouse.

I heard the same about The Witcher 2, but since I never tried it with a controller I never felt the need to think the keyboard+mouse was inferior. Therefore, if I never try Witcher 3 with a controller I should feel the same way.

My real dilemma is do I grab this right away, or wait for the inevitable 3.0 (aka Enhanced) version.

I wouldn't say a controller is superior for Witcher 2...I think both control methods have their pros and cons.

But some of the changes to combat do indeed make the mouse less needed than it was in the first game.

If you are button mashing in either Witcher game...you are doing it wrong.

Button mashing in the Witcher is about as effective as button mashing in the Batman Arkham games; so not at all.

And there was no aim assist in the first game, because there was no gamepad support. You had to time your attacks or it would break your combos. Aim assist is weak in TW2 and is ineffective most of the time. With the gamepad you use the right stick to aim towards your next target to change your target of attack (just like in Batman). You can use the L1 button to lock, but that will get you killed more than anything.

It actually never crossed my mind to try the Witcher with a controller... Maybe I would've died a lot less in combat.

You can't use a controller for The Witcher, but you can for The Witcher 2.

After preordering on GoG way back when and playing the prologue several times with mouse and keyboard, I finally settled in a few days ago and started playing TW2...using a gamepad so I can sit comfortably on the sofa while I enjoy the never ending stream of dialogue.

The UI is a little annoying to navigate using the gamepad, no quick button to Map, Journal etc suck and you can't bind the "back" button on the 360 pad for the game

Combat in TW2 with a gamepad I however find a bit better with a gamepad over the mouse. How things worked in the first game with the mouse, they don't work quite the same in the 2nd.

As the game progresses though, combat becoming more difficult and you have to start switching targets more often (without breaking your combos)...the gamepad will lose its effectiveness I think.

Good. This season felt exactly like Season 1 since there was sweet fuck all different in the grand scheme of things.

Well that's just wrong.

How quickly people forget the first 3 months of Season 1 versus the final 2-3 weeks of Season 1.

The reason it "feels" the same is because they patched 2.1 before Season 1 ended, which was just a plain old stupid thing to do. It completely fucked what people had done for the first 3 months of the season.

Season 1 was a throw away and everyone knew that going in, or should have known as the writing was on the wall from the first week with so many people using exploits to level and gear up ridiculously fast.

I rarely play it, but SC2 really is a great game and even more-so with all the mods, and I'm not even into playing multiplayer skirmishes.

I haven't finished Heart of the Swarm yet (got distracted by other games over the years), but I still have it installed and I'll get around to it eventually. Maybe I'll just wait until Legacy of the Void comes out and play it all again from the beginning.

My biggest issues I think is it's not a game I can just jump into now and then. You have to commit to SC2 or you forget what everything does and the hotkeys to control them.

I was all ready to completely side with Jeff Minter on this...but then I looked up a gameplay vid on YouTube. It really does look exactly like Tempest 2000. Even your ship is the same.

Sorry Jeff Minter, you lose.

Anyone bought and tried Outlaws yet?

Does it have the music in-game (as it was cd before)?

Does Hardware rendering work?

Multiplayer work at all? I assume not as it says "single player". BUt didn't the game have direct IP before?

I feel like people on this board are kind of jerks about MP. There are a lot of games that are MP only now, but just because you don't care about MP doesn't mean no one else does, or that it's the majority view. I played a lot of MP Descent in my dorm (mostly co-op), it was our go-to game more than DOOM or Warcraft.

Uhh, who was saying nobody cares about MP?

Most people don't want a MP only game from an unproven dev.
