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.

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.

Still only the first act playable? ARGGGGGHHH!

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.

I only have 2 gigs of ram this is bull shit, fucks sake

Are you just bullshitting us or are you on the level? Because no serious respectable gamer should have only 2 GB of ram in their PC.

If your on the level I don't know why your still running on 2 GB Ram. Did you think games are not going to evolve and start using more then 2GB? If so, maybe you should stick to a console.

Bethesda's "quality standards."

I guess The Evil Within was up to their standards? With a Metacritic of 67?

Well, at least there's hope Todd Howard is working diligently on ES6.

Hunted: The Demon's Forge can be added to that list.

Say what you like about Hunted, but the game wasn't half bad when you played it Coop.

As for Prey II, I'm not sure if the blame lies with Bethesda or Human Head, who is one of my favorite companies. I know most of those guys personally and I know they really wanted the game to succeed.

Hopefully Rune II will end up completed.

Ubi is either very bold and confident or just plain stupid to release this game on the same day as Inquisition.

I just don't understand this attitude by publishers to try and compete with each others releases when both can share the profits by staggering their releases. Very puzzling!

As for me being negative, Yea, I have my share of it here. but I'm general I don't get involved in most conversation about the games unless I find the topic interesting or towards something I'm playing.

I cant however say the same thing about you and many other here. you guys, have something to say about everything.

You didn't quote Elf, you quoted Wetworks and Redmask. I agree that Elfs response is negative but you didn't quote him so I assumed your reply was directed at them.

Nah people comment on what they're interested in, sometimes its positive and sometimes it isn't. I only clicked on this thread for example because its Halloween and I was thinking of picking this game up. I like reading peoples impressions on videogames, good and bad.

After all of the negativity on this game, it became a bargain bin game for me. Im content on waiting. I just have far to many other games right now to worry about. and Inquisition is coming out soon. my best friend worked on this game, so hes told me a lot about it. Plus I just love open world explore games so this one and Witcher 3 are high on my list.

I seriously don't think EA or should I say Bioware is going to mess this one up. its far to important to them and I think they learned a lot from their mistakes on DA2.

Plus my friend told me they went to great lengths to make this game right.

My reply was towards Elfs and Wetworks comments. Go and read what he said. I know what the others asked, Elfs response was nothing but negative and still pointing out those shortfalls in the game that just got patched.

Did you not pick up on that part or what?

I quoted wetworks comments and was referring to his comments and partly towards Elf. But you only quoted out a small piece of my original comment about reading the patch notes. Thats a pretty important part when you want to quote someone as being negative don't you think?

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.

I doubt you read it, if you did you would understand those people weren't bashing the game. Having a complaint about a single aspect (one that your post doesnt even fully address) is not "bashing". You live in this weird universe where if anyone says anything remotely perceived as negative about a game you play or like that they're "bashing" or "hating" it. Those people like the game, the other guy was the one bashing it. You can like a game and still not be happy with some aspects of it.

As usual Verno, you tend to try and make someone out as the bad guy. I don't even own this game nor do I care to, my comments were directed at those who were sitting here pissing and moaning about the games features. features the patch added. so if they had fucking read to god damn patch notes they would not have had to comment about features that were missing from the god damn game.

But as usual, these post ended up dragged down into the mud. They could have commented about hey, great they fixed the game, but instead it turned into a pissing contest.

But hey, its blues right, the place for all the pissers and moaners.

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*.

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