Do you guys even read

Ironic because you didn't even read such a short thread so theres no need to be so unpleasant. They're the two people in this thread who are praising the game. Seemed like they were just listing a few minor complaints which is pretty reasonable. Maybe they just didn't have a chance to read the patch notes yet *gasp*.

No excuse Verno, And yes I did read it. like I said, all they had to do before spouting off is read what the patch first before bashing the game. This is after all a thread about the patch and not the game itself.

We all know about the short falls of the game when it was released.

My biggest complaint with the game is the ridiculous letterboxing implementation more than anything else.

Use flawless widescreen fix asap,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FecuCLqn8w

It changes the fov and removes the letterboxing. I didn't realize how great this game can look until I did that.

Do you guys even read? or do you all just like bitching to bitch?

The Patch notes clearly state they unlocked all of these with an in game option now in the features.

So, you can but away your bitching for now and patch the game its now fixed.

I've had Origin for over a year now and I have had no issues at all with it. I prefer Steam, but there's nothing wrong with Origin.

I don't understand the basis for the lawsuit even when you don't consider the obvious parody defense. The actor doesn't own the rights to the Frankie Carbone character. The studio does.

^ Exactly! And-why this douche bag hasn't got a chance in hell of wining this one. plus the fact this char was original aired in 1991 goes a long way to saying that this asshat is only looking for money because hes some fat washed up out of work actor now.

That's awesome, the first game still has a pretty large community and is a blast to play.

Verno, did you play this game with a keyboard or a game pad?

I tried to get into this game, but just cant get past the crappy slow controls. So, that has kind of killed this game for me.

K-Lite Codec Pack, works for everything and you don't need other video players to watch your videos with. That's Including XVid.

Works like a charm, watch all of your videos with Windows Media player with that Codec Pack.

Was this on console first? Was it really that bad?

It has a few defenders like anything else on the internet but yes it was that bad. This started out as a Kinect game but when it became clear that doing anything with Kinect is fucking awful they decided to keep going instead of just wisely scrapping the whole project. The good part is the graphics, its a very pretty game. The bad part is pretty much everything else. The combat seems visceral to start but becomes repetitive and shallow quickly. The story is not even worth mentioning.

I suspect people will feel more favorable about it if they go into it with very low expectations and pay less than $15. I only put a few hours into it at a friends place but that was enough to say "ok lets not play this ever again and wheres Forza?".

Man you just described Shadow of Mordor. The story part is better though, but the combat is very repetetive even though the missions are quite varied. I had to force myself to play it yesterday and in the end it did grow on me a little bit, so its not a total loss. I just wish it took a little bit more skill to pull of those nice fatalites and whatnot, instead of just LMB button mashing (and the ocasional RMB) and pressing "F" when your sword lights up...

About Mordors combat, it wouldn't be so bad if they fricking didn't re-spawn the hell out of everything in the game. Seriously, cleared out an area by a camp fire walked away came back and the same bastards were re-spawned. this is what is making the game a boring slug-fest of repetition.

I cant speak for RYSE, it looks OK at best. so im waiting until Christmas Sales, maybe it will be 5 bucks by then.

I got about 45% through the first one. I do love dungeon crawlers, but I've always disdained copious puzzles. I like fighting, getting loot, figuring out battles, not pulling 10 chains in various sequences to get a door to open, or stepping on 15 teleporters for an hour. I know, I know, Eye of the Beholder, et. al. had them, and I hated them back then too.

That goes for me as well. Never finished it for the same reason.

I fit into this category too. I really despised the puzzles on some of the levels. this was a good game, but the timing on the puzzles were way to quick to try and complete. Way to much move left, now right. now pull lever A and run to lever B.

They really went over board on some of this crap.


I don't know if some of you got to the lower levels where one of the puzzles you had to do it is such a way and timing to get a special sword locked away. what a fricking nightmare it was to try and maneuver around the pillars pulling levers and avoiding dropping through the floor.

It was at that point when I gave up on this game.

Its a good game and all, but far to much of that going on.
One other thing I really got tired of seeing to was killing monsters and them blowing up into sparks. they really need to get more creative then that. Felt like Doom 3 and killing demons and then dissolving away. Boring.

A late UPS trailer arrival has delayed delivery. We're adjusting plans to deliver your package as quickly as possible. / Delivery will be rescheduled.

Motherfucker!


Did you order it on PC or PS4? I want to know your impressions of it regardless, I was just curious. I have been leaning towards PS4 (not buying it for a couple of months) just because it seems to be a game built around playing on a controller and also because I don't think there will be much of a modding scene for it.

I grabbed it on ps4, as that seemed to be what all the streams were, as well as the reviews.


Surprised nin, I never pegged you for a console junkie. Why did you not get this for the pc when its going to be the better platform?

I'll be posting this comment in multiple Middle-earth threads because nobody should miss out on this.

Here's a link with some actual PC footage played with a MOUSE and KEYBOARD!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrzSBpkxbqw#t=69

The video truly puts every single video out there to shame, with their limiting controller gameplay. This looks so good!

That video does look good, but during combat, why the fricking hell does the camera need to be at a side angle and not over the shoulder? That's just fucking lame and disappointing.

Holy shit, 6GB of VRam! My card "GTX 970 SC" only has 4GB. WTF!

I just got this card too. I pre ordered this game on GMG had 15 dollar credit and used the coupon got the game for 30 bucks.

Cant wait to play this one, glad to see the reviews are panning out.

I wouldn't sweat the requirements too much, they're often inaccurate. I've seen minimums that are absurd and high end specs that the game didn't warrant at all.

I hope your right. I guess Ill find out on Tuesday, if those textures are available.

It looks cool enough that I might be tempted to get it day one, but right near the end I saw a little "internet connection required" thingy. Not sure if that was just for the pre-order stuff, or if the game is always-on... Anyone have any idea?

Seeing how this game is also being released by WB. and seeing how Gauntlet was just released with an in game type web logging system that tracks your progress. I'm thinking that yes its going to be required.

Plus, in this video if you all didn't catch that, it has a leader board. Why? I have no idea. I personally hate leader boards of any type. I could care less about competing for first place In any game.

Just lame!! Look for the crack to bypass this crappy on line crud.

Verno wrote on Sep 24, 2014, 10:48:
This looks pretty neat but I've got a bunch of other crap to play and I don't hear any word of mouth on it.

I own this game, I played it for about 30 mins. I just have way to many other games right now to play that I cant commit any time to this one yet.

From what I played. it was a pretty nice game and looks good. But I did not like the zoom how its setup. and I saw no other way to change this.

You have two keys for zooming In and out. The wheelmouse when I tried to zoom in barely moved the zoom. I'm not sure if that's broken or what.

So, that Is something I was going to get on the forums and ask about. because its unacceptable to not be able to use the wheelmouse for zooming In and out.

The game play seemed simple. I played a skirmish. They gave me a set amount of units to start with and a small base station and a few carries I had to protect.

There was one odd thing I saw, and that was all of the units had a colored icon over top of the unit. I did not care for that look. I can understand if you are zoomed out so you can see the unit. but not when you are fully zoomed in. the icon should remove itself at a certain zoom in point.

The battles looks good and were fun to watch.

The Space station can build turrets and other ships. The one issue I had was I clicked one of the buttons to see what I does and it destroyed my station without prompting me first. That was bad. but I'm new to the game so lesson learned.

Like I said, I only got about 30 mins in, but the game does look promising. It was a disappointment that this game has no multiplayer though. I'm not sure if the devs plan to add it later or not.

Unfortunately the thing holding it back is the biggest part of the game. The combat is just completely basic and poorly balanced.

Yeah its kind of simple compared to say D:OS, but so far its fun.

The combat is okay, I've been enjoying the game a lot. Love the setting and all the places you explore.

so far, the game has been a lot of fun. Congrats the them on the game being successful. Imp sure we will see more add-ons for the game in the near future.
