I think you're thinking of Metro for the one based on books.

Most crashes I read about in the forum this morning where from people using the static lighting setting, so if you do risk it (I saw a number of very positive comments) make sure you're not using that.. which is the DirectX8 renderer if I remember correctly.

Every stretch goal from here out should be "..and we'll hire yet more programmers to work on this gigantic checklist of features.".

...should have been that a while ago actually.

I wish them luck. I still want to see this game make it, but thank god we have Elite.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Invasion Update
5. Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic Invasion Update Apr 9, 2014, 18:30 Drayth
 
Wow, a rational discussion on Blues News? I'll chime in - ToR's gameplay is a WoW clone approach, but I like the "feel" of the combat despite this. The game's not open world though (some of the later planets are rather huge, however), so you still feel like you're playing through what could be SP content, but is being very stretched out due to the general grinding through bad guys that's inherent to MMO's.

BUT, the MP aspects -- like joining up with other players, etc -- compensate this a bit. The game feels very much like a two steps back, one step forward affair, where I'm playing it because the story, the interactions, and all the other typical Bioware elements are there (and are addictive), but it would have been much better in a SP game... yet, the MP does add a little back in what IT offers.

Long post, short - if you enjoy it for what it is, it's a decent game, and it's fun to play through at least once. And very worth it to play through again on the opposing side, the story even plays off this element a bit when you visit a planet you ran through on one side then the other.

Just typing this gives me a slight itch to jump back in. Haven't played in about half a year. Oh, and the Sith Agent has the best storyline by far if you like dark (not a pun) storytelling.

Another thing to note is, at least as of last night, the game's still running in a borderless windowed mode even if you choose fullscreen.

I imagine they'll have exclusive fullscreen mode in soon (ToR got it in last minute too). Once that happens the game will no longer be locked to your desktop's gamma settings (should help with the dark char creation screens some people have), and performance will improve.

Driver control panel AA settings should start working, as well as Crossfire too. I think SLI runs fine in windowed.

You can tell it's in borderless windowed mode because alt-tabbing is pretty much instantaneous.

ToR has normal subscriptions. That's kind of the idea there, all the nickel and dime stuff just kind of opens up parts of the game (especially crafting). They make it all annoying enough that they want you to just cave and say 'Ah, F it, I'll just sub'.

This is probably the best classic RPG type MMO I've played. Now if everyone gets to the end game and there's nothing to do for months, well then there's that. But so far, totally enjoying this.

I think for 100 bucks they could still throw in *some* edition of the game. You can still pre-order another copy to get sooner, or for an edition that sells out just like they're wanting you to do here.

At most a physical CD and a single game key (that you can give away) get wasted. But not having the actual game with the material here seems less like a collector's edition and some sort of side item to me.

Rare to see an MMO team implement so many welcome tweaks based on player feedback. The last beta showed lots of nice improvements. Melee combat in 1'st person especially has come a long way.

Looking forward to this.

I thought for a moment this had potential for something cleverly comedic. It just starts off so quirky seeming... Ended up pretty cool none the less.

Just go to the game's Steam forum where you can find him in every single thread; banning anyone with a negative review, flagging negative reviews as abusive, etc..

Made for a nice diversion last night.

Speaking of awesome RPGs coming out this year, not sure how far they are from release, but Skywind may just beat all of them.

Saw a recent post from someone working on it that a 2014 release is pretty much a slim maybe.

I am looking forward to that one too though. If Bethesda had a small team who ported everything from Morrowind up into the most recent engine they'd be able to bring in some nice cash on the side me thinks.

I still haven't installed Dragon Age 2, though I got it for free a year or two ago. I remember how bad the demo was. No real interest in DA3 unless they go back to a top down view.

Strategic view like in DA:O is in, if that's what you mean.

Looking forward to this big time myself.

Dark Messiah is freaking awesome.

Thief 4 is a "reboot".

I personally happen to like the game a lot. Playing as a Dark elf starts you in the Desert story line. Then you make your way to Draggerfall. I just love that city, and the story line there. Itís been a fun so far for me.

Yeah, I've been enjoying the beta too. I like their focus on immersive elements (for an MMO, at least). The PVP is looking awesome as well, but I didn't get to try it out yet.

Played through the full game with keyboard / mouse and didn't notice any real issues. Played it on whatever version it's currently at.

edit - Yes, it's not the developer of the first two games.
