News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - Divinity: Original Sin

Ok got the game yesterday. Wow its been a while since Ive been thrown in the deep end of the pool, so to speak.

There are just a TON of options in the game, and the interface aint helping none.

Just had time to create a pair of characters ranger/mage and had one fight so far which I lost like a goddamn noob that I am.

So, anyone know of a good tutorial video or page or anything which I can access to try and get to grips with the game rules/interface??

FIFA is a scam -worse just as bad than as any US coporate agency.

There, fixed that for you. As for the rest of your post its just plain wrong. The USA absolutely deserved to be there, they qualified for the World Cup and they advanced past the group stage against all odds.

Belgium happens to be one of the most talented teams in the World at this moment, they are on the upswing and many in the knowhow are betting on them being a dominant force in European football for the next few years at least.

While its true that team USA did make errors at times, they played very professionaly and never let those errors affect their concentration or their morale. This was obvious to anyone who watched the game and follows the sport closely.

Your opinions are your own and you are entitled to them just as much as everyone else is, if you dont like football (or soccer) then you dont and thats fine but this doesnt detract from the fact that team USA did very well and made a fine showing at this championship.

Doom was great back in the day because there was just nothing like it. Doom 3 had kind of crappy gameplay, despite how great it looked at the time (still looks pretty good). I wonder if they'll do anything interesting to update the formula.

I've wondered that as well. To me, when Doom3 took a more realistic (graphically) and serious tone, it lost part of it's fun. I've yet to make it through Doom3, as I always get bored and play something else...

Same here, they should have stuck with the tone and scope of the first two games. Part of the reason they never did I believe was the complexity of the engine and the hardware limitations of the time. The game simply couldnt handle that many enemies at one time, or the vast open geometries of the levels that would require. Lets hope they have learned their lesson at iD and get the 'feel' of this game right.

Holy shit. This is awesome. The Ultima Underworld games were some of my earliest cRPG experiences, and they really were the first to do proper real time first person RPGs.

About Hydrogen Fuel Cells vs Lithium Ion Battery tech etc.

One important thing to consider, the electricity extracted from Hydrogen fuel cells is stored in batteries, which then power the engine!

They are smaller but they are still there! Im surprised that Toyotta is betting on this tech, since their car is less efficient and more expensive as a result.

For you guys who've played it, do newbies have a ton to learn before we can enjoy the game/sim or can we jump right in in an easy/arcade mode to get our feet wet? Also, do I need a flight stick or can I pull it off with M/KB?

Id also like to add to what SMA said, there IS a 'game mode' implemented in the sim, however it's really not representative of what you want to get out of it. It doesnt compare to the arcade titles mentioned before and will just feel horribly crap in comparison.

Half the fun in DCS is getting to grips with the specific planes, in essence the 'learning' part is the fun. I cant describe the feeling after managing to bring a badly damaged P51 back to base in one piece, or even the first time I managed to wrap my head around how the radar works in the F15C. This is a thinking man's game/sim and if you dont enjoy those sort of rewards or find them tedious then this is not the game for you.

OH, I don't doubt he has money. And he wouldn't be the first KS to ask for others funds instead of his own, either...


Oh absolutely. What I mean is that he may possibly try a Kickstarter, it's just one of those where I'd be like "Yeah, no. If you believe in this that much, you can fund it yourself." I'll never say that rich people shouldn't be allowed to use Kickstarter but I do think it's not necessarily within the "spirit" of it.

Who cares if they sold it for 1 million?

No need to protect consumers who cannot do a simple cost benefit on an EA title.

I payed steam sale price for this at Xmas... seems alright. It's no TA/Supcom yet though (And maybe never). But they can sell it for whatever they want as long as they let everyone know it's a WIP.

I bet they got a small number of enthusiastic community testers as well, much better than a horde of impatient demanding backseat designers.


Its one thing to sell it online to dedicated fans for 100 bucks, its another to try and pass it off on retail shelves (next to 'complete' games) at 'discounted' prices of 39,00 pounds or whatever....

Sega did well here. Also good to see that the community for this game is going strong enough for Sega to intervene and not leave them hanging. Still the best one in the series, although to be fair I enjoyed the hell out of DOW2 too (when it worked).

Best Buy Provides Pizza, Asks Employees To Contact Congress About E-Fairness Bill.

Illegal?

That was my thought, too. There's got to be a law against that.

Are you guys serious? Lobbying is LEGAL in the United States Congress and you are seriously asking if bribing your employees with pizza is legal??? MUAHAHAHHAHAHAHA...

I have mixed feelings about ED. On the one hand they make excellent simulations, on the other hand they are slow as fuck (F18?, Nevada Map?) and their forums are a Nazi moderator's paradise.

They ban forum members left and right. Just the other day a guy got banned on ED's forums for calling out a moderator on his bullshit. No trolling mind you, people were concerned about ED's PR/image problems and the moderators were just being giant dirtbags shitting all over the forum users for being "whiny and/or entitled". This guy calls out the moderator for being rude and makes a nice point about constructive criticism. Within five minutes the guy is banned, within 10 minutes his entire post history erased. Really fucking sad.

I saw some kids playing minecraft at the local park

Im trying to picture this in my head but really cant get it to work with my (limited) imagination. Were they like sitting in the sand pit and playing it on their laptops?? Worried
More like on their iPod or iPad.
This game is on every imaginable platform.
My 7 yrs old son plays this all the time. He shows me the stuff he built, and than when he gets together with his other friends they are talking about all their Mincraft stories.
I think this game is amazing to capture the young ones like this. I much rather see my kids play something like this than CoD

Its kind of sad to see that in the park though. Whats the point of going outside to play if they are basically still playing minecraft on their ipads or whatever?? Sigh...50 years from now kids wont even know what a tree looks like in real life, they will probably recognise one in a picture on their tablet of choice...

Finally North Korea and I agree on something. Seth Rogen has been waging war on moviegoers for too long.

I dunno I quite like his films. I nearly pissed my pants watching This is the End. Twice.
