I told my buddy that they need to fix up the PC controls and listed the problems we're having. He'll ignore it and probably tell me to fuck off, but I did it anyway. I'm going to try that cutscene fix, I was thinking they looked a little clunky compared to the rest of the game.

Everything you guys have said about the controls are 100% correct. It's definitely the weakest part of the game. I haven't rebound yet, but I'm not sure that'll solve my biggest problems. I can't get used to the hold click to attack thing. I keep trying to select things with left click and engage with right. Maybe rebinding will fix that.

I definitely don't like how I try to loot something and nothing happens. Then realize I need to walk another inch close and its fine. Irritating.

Combat is still kind of hit and miss too. The AI is pretty weak. Enemys always aggro my guy and only my guy. And my companions don't even try to pull them off.

I'm using a 780, and the game runs at maxxed settings with no issues at all. It is very impressive visually. Beyond that there are still way more good things about this game than bad. Really wish they would tweak the combat and controls though.

Woot, got my copy. PC deluxe edition. Bioware buddy hooked me up. Wouldn't even take my money. What a nice fellow.


Dang, wish I knew I nice Bioware fellow...

I live in Edmonton, half of my comp Sci graduating class went to work there. I've known a lot of guys who've been in and out of there. I considered it once upon a time, but the tradeoffs were too great. I work as a .net and database developer for an oil equipment company. Not as glamorous, but one of my bonuses is probably half the total annual salary I'd get at bioware, and I get two bonuses a year. Financially it's a no brainer, plus my hrs are better. Those guys work a ton of unpaid overtime.

And have the joy of always having to worry whether they're going to get fired once the game is done. (usually not a big concern at Bioware, but still.)


Yeah, that's a problem. The guy who gave me the game has it pretty good. He doesn't actually work on the game, he makes the tools they use to make the game. Which means his job security is better and his hours are better too.

I told him that they were getting thrashed on metacritic by user reviews. He told me that some guy filed a complaint to the FTC against them for Mass Effect 3. So I said that there isn't a circle in hell big enough for the abortion they called an ending.

Big difference between official reviews and user ratings so far. Will be interesting to see how this ends up.

Metacritic Critic Score 87
Metacritic User Score 5.6


Metacritic user reviews are as useless as the critic ones. "it doesn't run well on my low end pc. 0/10"

Watch some streams on twitch, decide if you like what you see.

I trust user reviews more than the critics.

I don't trust either. But user reviews are often filled with garbage too. Like reviewing a game low cause you don't like the company. Crap like that.

One guy even gave it a 0 because he wanted it to have turn based combat.

Bad news, Creston. Leliana is NOT a romance option. Just read it. Thought you might want to know... I feel like I need to go get drunk now.

Aw shit. Here. 256TB RAM, a core i19@5.3Ghz and a GTXMegaForceSupreme99990Ti.
Well the good news is you will not need specs like that to play the other space game that is due out in a month
and instead of a digital cigar or hair comb they are giving all beta testers an additional free ship (your choice of the 5 new ships) as a thank you for the support.
Oh yeah and there will be 5 more ships in the final game than what was promised in the kickstarter

Looking forward to it. Probably a day one buy. I didnt opt in the beta as Im still lacking a proper TrackIR (it's on the way yay!) but I will definitely purchase Elite Dangerous as soon as it goes 'live'. I realise the game is kind of barebones but it will be a nice change of pace from DCS which is what Ill be playing 'full time'.

Ah you already ordered it. I was going to tell you to google EDTracker. Assembled it's about 50 bucks, if you buy the pieces on their own, figure about 30 bucks plus some soldering. It basically uses similar bits to the Occulus Rift to do accellerometer based head tracking and works really well for X/Y plane tracking (Z plane isn't doable with the chipsets involved apparently).

If you don't have TrackIR it's a good option.

I thought about getting TrackIR for ED, but felt that it would be obsolete once I get Oculus.

Lelianna is still crazy hot.

HANDS OFF MY LELIANA!!!!


I'll post more tomorrow if I can play more. But Creston will probably have more info before then.

I won't be able to play until Monday night when it releases, or probably Tuesday when it finishes downloading. I'm not paying EA for early access.

Thanks for the early impressions

Oh my bad, thought u had it. Ok well ill post more tomorrow unless my kids suck up all my remaining time before I get home from work.

Ok, so, my wife came down and kicked me off the TV. Here's what I got so far. First, this game is reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally pretty. And plays pretty well. I'll be getting this for PC though, I don't like using a gamepad for this type of game. Just doesn't feel natural to me.

The henchman AI seems better than DAO. They were firing off special moves constantly and not waiting for me, but it still has the same problem where they don't position themselves very well. In the first boss fight, after a few minutes, I switched to the party members and noticed both my mage and archer were in melee range of the ogre and firing their ranged weapons. I had to take control of each and march them away.

I haven't had a chance to get a look at the size of the world yet, or the size of most of it's zones. But the beginning few seem a pretty decent scale.

I wish I could play it with kbm cause the controller took getting used to when trying to go through all the different options.

For production quality, it's top notch. Voice acting is solid, lipsyncing is solidish. Sounds are great, visuals are really great. On the Xbox One which is going to be the worst of all the platforms, I was impressed.

Careful grabbing onto ladders to climb down, I was an inch too far away and instead jumped over the damn cliff.

Lelianna is still crazy hot. And I want to bang Cassandra pretty bad too.

The skill tree is like a cross between Witcher 2 and DAO. Probably closer to Witcher 2, which is good cause it was pretty stale in DAO.

I'll post more tomorrow if I can play more. But Creston will probably have more info before then.

When it comes down to it, buying this game is a no brainer, I've already seen enough to know that I'm gonna love it. My only worry would be the game length cause I haven't played enough to gauge it, but I'm seeing reviewers have played it 80+ hrs and still going hard.

And PC all the way, in my opinion.

Pretty certain the 13.5 million Sony quotes is shipped, too. I see it listed as both, depending on the site.

All 3 systems are easy to find, but that stupid white Xbone sold out pretty much immediately.

Yeah it is. That's the thing, if one of them starts using "shipped". Then they both kinda have to. Remember that the audience here isn't us. We already have one or both of these. They're trying to convince folks on the fence, and if having a bigger number is what it takes to convince that person they'll use as big a number as they can manage.

Most people reading these headlines that are potential customers aren't going to try to disseminate sold and shipped and sold through. They just see 10 MILLION!!!!

Kyle at Ars said that the Analysts he's talked to told him that typically with consoles the shipped figure is pretty close to the sold figure. It takes a couple weeks for sold to catch up to shipped. Big box stores try not to order much more than they're getting in demand, and at a year into sales they probably have a pretty good idea what demand is going to be.

A lot of people seem to think that 10 million shipped means 5 million sold over the past 12 months and 5 million currently sitting on store shelves. Which is pretty absurd.

Wait for the Xmas sales at least. And it's only right that Creston take the plunge first and give us his feedback.

I have a couple friends that work at bioware. One of them said he can get me a copy at a discount. I said, awesome sauce.

Combine the Star Citizen and Gamergate threads in to one.

Ahh, HardOCP. You gotta watch yourselves over on their forums. They wield the ban hammer like no other. I once saw a guy get permabanned for asking the mods to "have some sympathy" regarding another guy that got banned. Someone else got an infraction for calling out an Apple fanboy on his fanboyism, he then posted "What the hell, I got an infraction for that?!" They permabanned him and deleted the post. Everybody else was too afraid to speak up.
