This just sounds so... I want to say unfair. Once you actually read user reviews and they all or most of them praise the game; you watch user gameplay videos and they look really good to you, you're basically saying you'd still wait for this massive discount. Wtf. :\
Unfair is what DA2 did to everyone, my fairness extends to offering them *some* money in return.

What was unfair about DA2? Did you not have the exact. same. option. for DA2? I.e. wait for reviews and then wait for price to hit something you felt was good value?

I Have DA2... and its UI is heavily inspired by the console version. It's DA1 that has the heavy mouse/keyboard UI. Facts and knowledge right back at you. DA2's interface was boring and streamlined, DA3 looks like boring/streamlined/smartphone Version 2.0.

The endless obsession in this age with minimalist UI is upon us, in the age of Apple, smartphones, and ... stuff.

Boring? Streamlined? Would you rather it were "exciting" and "unintuitive"? It sounds to me like you actually WANT a shitty, inefficient UI. The UI is there to allow you to play the game, nothing more, nothing less. I don't want my screen covered in UI elements when I'm trying to experience a world.

If the UI is functional and fast and has been modified to respond appropriate to mouse interaction, it's good.

Every time I see you bitch about UIs I get the impression that you want your screen looking like this

I still love the way they make their role-playing games such an immersive, cinematic, story-heavy experience. It's the thing I desperately miss in every kickstarter release out there.

I'm finding Wasteland 2 and Divinity Original Sin to be immersive and have enough story for me. As far as cinematics, I'm fine with dropping those to have more gameplay.

I like those games too, but I don't find them immersive nor their story engaging enough to return to the game. For me, those games are basically just gameplay. They are good for variety but I'd probably stop gaming if games like Mass Effect, Dragon Age or The Witcher (I know, not Bioware but same idea) would die out and we're left with games like Wasteland 2 and DOS.

I have to agree with you on this. Games like that just aren't the same. In those types of games I don't have characters I love or hate, and there's so little effort at world building that it takes me forever to actually get pulled in to a playthrough. I'll usually have 2 or 3 false starts because for me, the story and lore set the hook in an RPG.

For me, things like DOS and Wasteland 2 are RPGs for min-maxing character sheet obsessives. They are 100% about mastering the numbers. Not everyone has always played RPGs that way. I do it, sometimes, but a lot of times I'm far more interested in a compelling setting and characters to love or hate.

Not every game has to be a playable movie, but like you I'd be extremely saddened if we saw an end of things like ME, DA, and Witcher.

A tip for new-comers:

Exactly like the Arkham games, it's best NOT to roam from the start but at least do the first 5 or 6 main missions before you start acting like the completionist that you are. Those first main missions unlock skills and game features that add layers this game really needs.

Ok I'm gonna reply/add to my own comment here, because when the shitty fudge do we actually get the skills that are advertized in every single PR video of this game? I mean the option to let an Uruk SPY ON, ASSASSINATE or THREAT other Uruks? I'm already at 10/20 Main Missions looking at my progress bar and so far all I've been able to do is gain INTELL and KILL and do powerstruggle quests that are a big questionmark to me. Why should I care if a lower Uruk rises in power or not if I can't convert the fucker

You unlock Brand at the beginning of the second map. Death Threat is an ability you have to buy in the skill tree.

You do realize that the previous two Dragon Age games had their own unique UI for PC, right? And that this one will be no different?

Get out of here with your facts and knowledge and shit. You're interrupting the circlejerk.

I'm curious to see where this one finishes at before the final (well as final as this game will be) game comes out. Wonder how well it will trend on microtransactions post release too.

If they want to profit they'll probably have to have microtransactions out the ass, seeing as everyone who wants a copy will have a copy before it launches.

Also, wouldn't the 11 billion alphas and betas of Minecraft qualify as crowdfunding? That was a totally indie effort and made like 250 million in 2012 alone.

Eh I don't really think that's crowdfunding. The product was being made regardless of how much money it was making. It was simply available for purchase.

There was no organized effort to say "Hey, we have a goal, but we need your financial help to reach it!"

I've noticed that after killing SOME captains, instead of seeing their heads on pikes at the Sauron's Army screen, it shows them simply lying on the ground.

I think the ones who show up on spikes are dead-dead, but the others can come back to haunt you? Not sure.

3. Is Rift still doing well? I thought that since the MMOs that came after didn't really do that well, maybe Rift would've folded by now? Good for them if they are still doing well.

Contact nin on Steam. Tell nin what happened. nin leaves his van and walks across the street to inform Blue.

TADA!

I thought nin parked his van behind Rockstar HQ for optimal distance to give back alley tuggies?

Been playing this all day. Tons of fun.

The one thing I'd recommend to people is not to just cut down all the Captains while they are level 3 noobs. The game is too easy that way and you don't get any good runes for your weapons. Don't be afraid to advance time and let some of the power struggles play out to groom some badass captains for you to kill.

Those level 3 and 4 guys are jokes because they are almost always vulnerable to 2 or more types of instakills.

Some of the tougher guys I've fought took me a good 10-15 minutes of running around trying to find any opportunity to get past their stupidly overpowered shield and ability to just throw me down when I try to leap over them to get behind.

But yeah, it's an incredibly fun game and you can make it as easy or as hard as you want on yourself.

Player starts out as a god, and only get stronger from there.

Tell that to some of these fucking orc captains who I've let get too big for the britches. They have like zero weaknesses left aside from like nuclear ordnance which doesn't exist in Middle Earth. Gotta work on getting some more creative solutions. Maybe go for unlocking that skill that lets me turn orcs to my side and use them as fodder.

Performance seems really good. Note that if you use SLI, Nvidia somehow failed to get an SLI profile ready for this ahead of time. I forced AFR2 in the control panel and that got SLI going. It seems to scale really well with SLI too.

2560x1440, Ultra, everything maxed out etc, solid 60fps. My system is pretty beefy but I've had no stutters or other weird issues like I've had with some other PC ports recently.

EDIT: Holy fuck this game is fun. Wouldn't go so far as to recommend the game yet, haven't seen enough to judge, but first impression is that they need to just stop making those fucking no-kill pussy Batman games and make more of this. The things I'm doing to these orcs just ain't right man.

Ubisoft is pretty good about putting nearly everything on PC so I imagine it will come eventually. But I doubt it will come out at the same time as the console versions, seeing as how Unity and Rogue came out on the same day, I doubt they'd release two PC Assassins Creed games on the same day.

Having a blast with Wasteland 2, baring a few bugs. What an incredibly fun RPG. A true successor to the original, one of the very first games I have ever played. Can't recommend enough.

Also Starpoint Gemini 2 was released this week, another very fun RPG/Action hybrid. Watch a few videos and give it a try if you are interested.

Looking forward to Middle-Earth: SoM, but I'm not preordering. Looks good though.

I got Gemini 2 today and have been playing around with it. Seems like a lot of good reviews and the community loves it. Still trying to get the hang of what I'm supposed to be doing though. So far, just did a few of the story missions and flying around doing little missions here and there. Lots of things to learn about. I think the only thing I don't like is you can only save when docked, and it can take a few minutes to fly to a docking station.

Just a reminder: PTE mode. Bring up the middle mouse button context menu and hit Power To Engines. That speeds you up considerably. It's like cruise mode in Freelancer. That, combined with putting all your energy transfer into Engines will get you moving very fast.

I didn't know about that for the first hour or so I was playing and it made things a little too slow

50 bucks for a very broken game, and then you want to release paid DLC?

So long Egosoft, it was nice knowing you.

Eh, they've done a lot of work on the game even after the cold reception it got. Most developers just wash their hands of a project when it doesn't sell particularly well. It's still not a particularly good game, but they didn't abandon it.

It will have also been over a year since release by the time this DLC comes out. I think that's an adequate period of fixing the game up before releasing new content.

Plus giving people a month to get it for free is good.

I don't think releasing a stinker makes you obligated to give everything away for free until the end of time or until your company goes under.
