Actually, you would be wrong Creston, the camera was locked to the char. you did not have to hold down the mouse button to look around. That is what most are complaining about, myself included.
That does sound like a pretty glaring design flaw. Hard to simply claim ignorance on it, too

Really? try playing the game for several hours on end and then come back and tell me how your hand feels after clutching your mouse for several hours. Trust me, its not fun and hurts the hand after a while. That is a very glaring design flaw, and one that should have been addressed.

In fact, I can point out a game that has a great design and its a very similar game when it comes to the over the shoulder viewing of your character and playing. Neverwinter Online. The mouse is locked to the char and turns with the char. When you want to use the mouse cursor you hit the Alt key and it unlocks the cursor.

This is how the game should have been designed.

Kind of like Dragon Age Inquisition too with having to hold the Right Mouse button down constantly to look around and view. Did someone not bring shit up like that saying hey, my fucking hand hurts having to hold the button down all the time?

But that's kind of been the way open world games do camera panning. Skyrim did it this way. Oblivion did it this way. DA:O and DA2 did it this way. I agree that if you do it for too long it'll cause major RSI issues, but I don't fault them for sticking to what's kind of been the default for RPG games for awhile now. (Edit: I'm an idiot, as Skyrim and Oblivion don't actually require this. No idea why I thought they did.)

There are far worse issues with the DA:I UI than that.

Unbelievable the sheer lack of QAing that's not being done in games these days.

if you've been playing already, then you've been playing in an online-only way. therefore nothing will be different to you upon launch.

only furthering this being the biggest kicking and screaming party of the year.

Do you not understand concepts like principles? That most people don't like being lied to? Particularly when there's money involved - and the amount is irrelevant. A man who doesn't keep his word isn't a man. Hey Sully, he lied. Even if they had honestly intended it at the beginning, you can't say they didn't know for a long time now. And that means they've been intentionally misleading people to bring in money. Not only is it immoral, it's illegal.


Well said Cutter,

It will be a cold day in hell before anyone trust these guys again. If they ever try to go Kickstarter again their game is almost assured to be doomed right from the start after lying through their teeth to everyone.

Trust goes a long way, and when someone breaks that trust you might as well kiss your ass goodbye because no one will ever buy into their BS again.

If these guys were forthcoming to begin with this would not be an issue now. I'm having a hard time believing they are giving each person's situation with the thoroughness it deserves.

More like, to bad for you, so piss off.

I'm glad I didn't back or buy this game. Still awaiting Star Citizen, which I think is going to blow this game away.

It always amazes me how people have the gull to complain about a game on the official forums after they pirated a game. I hope Ubi tracks down the dumbasses on their forums and sends them a bill for their pirated game or a threat to pay up or else.

This is the stupidity of toady's people at work. They either have no sense or are just arrogant, either way I hope they get busted for being so stupid.

Just to much to play right now, This and DAI. Ughh, Dragon Age Inquisition has been great so far. Probably the best looking RPG to date. Wittcher 3 has a lot to live up to if they are going to beat DAI. But I have to resist playing this until I finish DAI.

Yep. Because looks is everything.

Or maybe not.

Dude. Seriously. In terms of RPG mechanics, story, characters and gameplay, The Witcher 3 is gonna fucking slam-dunk this DAI piece of shit so hard that the whole court is gonna implode earthquake style.

I should take your word for what you are saying because why? I guess you must have played the game already and beat it to boast such an accusation seeing how no on has even played one second of Witcher 3. Try putting some time into DAI before making an open ended accusation.

I have a friend who worked on this game, I'm going to be asking him to put In a request to put in auto combat.

Or at the least make it so we can toggle it...

Also ask them to allow for a keyboard shortcut to the "take all" functionality. Having to move your mouse over to the physical location of the botton on screen gets boring in a hurry. You're already hitting F to take the loot, who not just hit F again to take all? Like RPGs have been doing for a dozen years or so already.


ill send that along with my request.

Thanks Creston,

I haven't been wow'd by the first introduction to a game like this one in a long time. There was a definite holy shit moment starting it up, I didn't expect it to look that good... although, I have a 3770k with a GTX 780 and have found myself having to tweak the graphics a bit since the automatic detected Ultra was only getting ~30 with some annoying dips.

And then I spent the next 2+ hours restarting and playing with the character creator and haven't really played yet

Agreed, I just love the game so far, and on my GTX 970 everything maxed out on Ultra this game looks killer. loving the combat to so far, but I really don't like that there is no auto combat and you have to hold the button down to keep attacking.


I have a friend who worked on this game, I'm going to be asking him to put In a request to put in auto combat.

Otherwise the game has been nothing but awesome so far.

The JC2 MP is fun, but really only for short periods of time. There really isn't enough to actually do for that many people, so it just becomes a matter of getting ganked every 4.2 seconds by Rand0/\/\T1T or whoever happens to be in your area and sees you spawn.

Not saying that isn't fun, but it does get kinda stale in a hurry.

It was nice that these guys took the time to put MP in that game but as you said there is nothing to do in there but kill leach other. boring. These guys in my opinion really screwed up and missed a good opportunity to make the SP game Coop. that would have been a blast.

What? haven't you been keeping up on this game? Both Act 1 and Act 2 are completely playable. Act 3 is coming out in Jan.

The game is really coming along great, its been a lot of fun and the new Arcane class they added is very kewl.

So, I bought this game off GMG because my friend who I play Coop games with on Fridays wanted to play this game. I've never been a fan of thse games at all. So here I am 16 hours later and its still installing. All because of fucking UPLAY and their fucked up bullshit. I've read where many others are also having issues getting the game to install.

I have no fricking idea why this is taking so long and is going so slow. I have no issues at all on steam or Origin installing games. I've even done the bandwidth check and im getting my full up and down speeds of 20 down 3 up.

This is why I fucking hate UPLAY and UBI.

Finally going to show off that last expansion?



blizzard is becoming a company that has lost its way. All it knows how to do is rehash the same shit over and over. they have no originality or new concepts anymore.

Proof of that was Titan being canceled after 2 years. And them saying WOW would still be around 10 years from now. And that's because they don't have anything to replace it.

Nothing but a shadows of their former selves.

I see Ubi still hasn't learned their lesson. I guess ill be skipping their games from now on.

Not a big fan of uPlay, but I wouldn't be so quick to jump on Valve's defense. Their cut of digital sales is pretty high, somewhere around 30%. Which is fine for smaller devs who need the exposure Steam can offer, but for Ubisoft, whose games already have tons of press and marketing, and they already have their own digital store where they get to keep it all, frankly I'm surprised they haven't pulled their entire catalog at this point like EA.

I happen to like all of my games in one nice neat little place. Do you know how many times I keep UPlay up and running compared to Steam? about as much as I go out in the woods and take a dump.

Sorry, for me, I really don't care for most of Ubi's games anyway. So they can keep their portal, I hope they take a serious hit in sales because of this dumb move.

And BTW, I just checked all of their games are still showing up on Steam. So they haven't removed them yet.
