Well, I'm certainly not going to buy a game that takes me longer to download than play.

So you're saying that people with higher bandwidth have more fun playing short games?

Theres a reason his avatar is wtf!

Hearing good things about the gameplay, so far...

One person said 6-ish hours.


I was about to post that question on the length. seems a bit short for a 40 gig install. I hope he rushed it and its actually around 8-itsh.

What really was appealing to me on this one was that they went back to the castle. I really liked that about the first game.

Thanks nin!

Are they putting in the original game in this release too? The original game was 40 GB. that's a lot of data for a supposed add-on.

Could work, useful for games that use Steamworks.

I can't wait until it's abused by one of the fly by night devs who do dcma takedowns on reviews that don't flatter them.


Oh, it will happen, there are far to many ego maniac devs out there that have no self control when it comes to this kind of power. There are going to be all kinds of disrupts over this. wait and see.

I'm sorry, but any exploit in any game that is the developers fault should never get anyone banned even if they are exploiting. Blizz knew about it and did nothing to fix it until it got out of hand.

You cant fault someone who is only using the game, if a goblin is dropping Blood Shards at a crazy rate, then blizz should have hot fixed it on the spot and not a week later.

Blues, I'm not sure if your card qualifies or not, but I read last week that it was either Nvidia or EVGA, cant recall now. was giving away free backplates for those who bought a new GTX 970 card. Might want to do some checking. Those backplates are awesome to have on your card.

Sorry Blues, it was EVGA.

Anyone know if the fighting system will be improved from Witcher 2? I thought Witcher 2 looked great but played like shit. Kind of wish they'd just copy something like Dark Souls if they want something slower or basically any other 3rd person game (Batman, AC, GOW, DMC, etc...) if they want something faster. The weird "my enemy is at 2 o'clock so i'm going to do an awkward 360 spin move that will get you killed strike" wasn't that appealing to me.

Well, to each their own I guess because I actually liked the Combat in Witcher 2 but totally despised how Witcher 1 Combat worked.

And quit frankly Dark Souls combat and camera sucked. You guys are to in tuned with Console game play. I like a Third person Camera that is locked right behind the character and sitting just above the shoulder. Much like an MMO style camera.

Having a camera that moves around just kills the experience. I cant stand having a camera that moves around when you are trying to run and the next thing you get is the camera in your face like you are running towards it. just a horrible way to try and play any game.

Am I the only one who revels in glorious glee at the failure of all of these World of Warcraft clones??? Because, lets face it, regardless of the setting, backstory etc. all of these 6-months-to-f2p MMOs are just that: World of Warcraft in another skin. Very little innovation in the genre has been made since the days of Ultima Online and Everquest, in fact most MMOs have devolved to become stupidly simple, easy & grindy in a really bad way...

you just described WOW.

Yes, I know. Blizzard has cornered the market for stupid, gimmicky MMOs. They even corrupted their Diablo franchise with retarded wow-like game mechanics as well as the story/art style. Really sad stuff.

I know what you mean dude. I cant stand the constant Grind in D3.

Also, the re-rolling of gear to try and get the perfect stat on a piece of gear is beyond ass stupid.

Hey, sorry. His steam name is The Hanker Chief. Do you know that name?

Yep. Have known him for a long time. Met playing CS:S almost 10 years ago.


Ask him about me. We were the ones who created the mod for NWN Eye of the Beholders many moons ago. he helped me script a lot of that mod and the current one. Have know him for a long time too.

Think I knew that...as I know where he works now. We played CS:S in my crappy clan long before he got the job.

Yea, in fact he used our project as a reference in his resume when he was applying for that job.

I didn't mention him in the recent project because of obvious reasons that could get him in trouble.

But a good guy all around.

I haven't pulled the trigger yet so here are a few questions to those who are playing the game already:

1) How's the GUI, how does it play without a controller - keyboard/mouse only?

2) What kind of DRM does it come with? I want the Steam version (acceptable DRM imo) but is there anything else that could potentially be a pain in the ass?

3) Will it actually run smoothly on a GTX 970 @ 1080p with everything set to max.? According to some youtube videos VRAM usage quickly exceeds 4 Gb on higher settings...

Thank you very much in advance guys!

From what I'm hearing its using the same DRM that Dragon Age Inquisition uses.

Cant comment on anything else. don't have the game, and wont until this comes way down in price.

Krovven? How do you know Mika?

I'm good friends with him, and saw you in his friends list. At least I'm thinking this is you because of that avatar you used to use.

Am I correct?

The whole Trials thing is a pain to do. Everyone wants it gone. Blizz just needs to cave in to what everyone wants and remove doing trials and just let people select the Greater Rift difficult they want to do.

I had no idea what this game is, but after reading on their wiki its supposed to be a throwback to Command and Conquer? Looks sort of that way.

Same, never heard of the earlier game, Act of War either, but this looks really good, in a classic C&C way.

Added to the wishlist!

*EDIT* Oh nice, Act of War Gold edition on gog.com, might buy it

Well worth it, if you do buy it let mek now I made a map pack of several large skirmish maps for the game. really nice detailed maps too.
