Can entire combat be modified so that it doesnt suck?

The combat could surely be improved but why does it suck?

It's console combat.

Button mashing doesn't work on Witcher 3, it's more likely to leave you dead just like in the second one.

The bit about Firefox being slower in Windows 10 sounds suspicious to me as well, are they intentionally gimping performance to get people to use their "fast" edge browser?

Firefox is turning into shit and has been for the last few years, every release has more bloatware, more crap, more useless 'features', that slow it down. They've lost so much marketshare in the last 4 years that they should be very worried. They went from ~60-70% of the market down to 6-9% or so.

Have they made the away missions NOT suck? I played for a while a couple of years back and managed to get quite far in very few hours. Didn't pay a dime too. I just did the story missions and while the space missions and combat were awesome the terrible, awful, POS boring away missions just made me want to puke all the time. This is why I quit.

They revamped all ground combat a few years ago, from what I hear(wasn't playing then) it's massively improved over what it was.

I prefer their ES games. They are much better suited to them, it's their in-house IP and their last ES game Skyrim was pretty damn good. Better than Oblivion, and nearly as good as Morrowind.

I for one can't get excited at all for F4. I'm expecting a mediocre game, let's hope Im pleasantly surprised.

Going by the screenshots of FO4, I'm expecting worse then mediocre. The only redeeming quality might be the crafting system. But the who dialog thing just rubs me the wrong way, especially considering the text-heavy way FO1/2/3 is.

I haven't been paying attention to this game but I'm kind of surprised that it's still going. What's the population been averaging these days?

If you want to play for the story, it's very much worth it. Otherwise don't sink your money into it. Population wise? Who knows, it's got a large enough pop though that they keep releasing content and expansions though.

Well it could get me playing again, I don't think I've touched the game in two years. But I did enjoy the hell out of it when I was playing it and had plenty of time to do so.

Still enjoying Witcher 3, it's a great game.....But man is it LONG! I swear I must have like 100+ hours in it & still feel like im a long way from the finish line....

Easily 250 hours with all the side quests now, especially those they've added in. I was around 200 hours on my first playthrough, and I still skipped 90% of the caches in Skellige.

So why aren't they arresting Tea-Partiers in that case?

So whey aren't they arresting SJW's in that case? They both use the same blocklist that ISIS uses and even retweet them.

Great example of (devs) needing to get it right the first time, or you're toast.


This is a great example of scam artists getting slapped down hard.

Most of the buzz I've heard is because there is too little content in Warlords of Draenor. There will be no more patches for WoD, instead they will drop the expansion next year.

Most people actually like Mists of Panderia better, it had a lot more content and a continent that was actually fun to explore.

Word is that WoD focused too much on the solo garrison system and ignored creating fun content for everything else. Also, there was no new race or class in WoD so people didn't have an incentive to level a new alt. In Mists of Panderia they had a new monk class and a new Pandaran race.

If the started making content again like TBC, people would start coming back. But blizz seems to think that ooh simple is the way to roll.

Cats = popular
Zimbabwe = not popular

Sounds about right. No one in the 'social media' gets upset when a lion kill 23 people or an elephant goes on a rampage in Zimbabwe, but suddenly a lion with a name is killed...and OMG...MUH FEEEELLLLLLlllsssss.

What the fuck is a religious site doing reporting on gaming news? Bizarre. I suppose next we'll see WeButcherCows.com covering interior design or AnalBleaching.com covering genocide in Rwanda.
ChristCenteredGamer.com is another religious site that covers gaming, funny enough it's exceptionally unbiased, and where it is biased it puts it up on display for everyone to see. Just because a site is religious based, doesn't mean it doesn't have good content.

Corrupt sleazeball gone only means better things for the IGF. Now they just need to get away from the art=games and walking simulators they've been awarding for the last few years.

It's funny how people are willing to give up their privacy just so they can talk into a microphone and ask stupid questions like what's the weather. At the very least if you're going to be willing to be data mined then you should get something out of it.

Now all those people complaining about privacy concerns raise your hands since you likely use a iphone and it does the same thing.

Windows 10 upgrade resets your default browser to Edge; Mozilla is very unhappy.

Heh, that's small potatoes compared to what they'd do a decade ago.

Windows 10 resets everything on a upgrade, Windows 8 did too, and Windows 7, and Vista, and XP. Then again the shit that mozilla has been doing, the browser being reset is the least of their worries. Maybe less listening to art majors, and removing more bloatware would be a good plan.

I dunno, I enjoyed Rome II, warts and all. Sure it was a bit fucked up on release, some patches later it was a little bit less fucked up. But I never pretended that it had to be anything other than an epic battle simulator with a relatively simple strategic layer thrown in for good measure. I don't really care about historical accuracy and shit like that, and since this is basically fantasy, Im thinking it's perfect for the Total War team...

Still wished they went with the 40K, but this looks pretty good too...

A lot of people had problems at release, I didn't. The stuff missing from Rome 2 compared to Rome is what bugged me. The emperor edition is much, much better though. I've still got nearly 700 hours in Rome 2, so you can say I like it but I'm still soured on it.

I'm gonna guess though that they're going with the high-fantasy stuff instead of 40k first just to see how well it's received by the market. If it's good, they'll roll out a 40k game next year or something along those lines.
