Meh, I thought the first Darksiders was too button-mashy and consoly. I quit after an hour. Didn't bother picking up the 2nd one.

Darksiders 2 is actually a far better game than DS1 imo I liked it, and I mean, I really liked it (100% completion)

I hope they patch the issues still present in Darksiders 2. Still glad to hear the series is not dead.

Yeah I still have some stuttering and lag issues on PC - and my computer is well capable of playing this game.

It's even worse with the DLC - problems with savefiles may crash the game when loading savegames with DLC content. Not sure if there's an unofficial fix somewhere.

Thankfully I had neither of these problems, but I doubt you will see fixes for that....

And one can tell you are angry over someone not agreeing with your opinion. Which is far more FAIL than the review. Who are you to call this guy's experience worth less than your own? Not everyone experiences a game the same way you do and saying that only your way is the right way is beyond absurd and childish.

Anger? Please. Pointing out when someone is doing something the incorrect way is not anger. He isn't reading the on-screen instructions and gets angry when what he's trying to do isn't working. Children do better than that. Still fail.

From what I saw in let's plays that is what a lot of gamers do though. Point is, he is not representative of all gamers, but the review most certainly is representative for some. And the fact that you can miss the level up girl is something you see happen to a LOT of gamers that didn't spoiler the game before playing. If you know how level up works in this game, you would actually be looking for her. If you do NOT know this, you would NOT look for her. And so there is a real chance you might not ever find her.

And please, reading the manual? In 2014 ?

Ye guys just need to learn and accept that reviews are not obligated to confirm your views Personally, I don't care for reviews to begin with, but I wish reviews for Banished would have slammed it hard for obfuscation of information. That is a SIN in game-design.

Not sure how much of that really applies to DS2, as you might have gathered, I can't even *start* the damn game.

This review has as much legitimacy to be there as any other.

By the way, to this day Dark Souls 2 simply crashes to a black screen for me at start of the game creates an empty corrupt save and nothing happens. Would be nice if the fucking devs were actually fixing this. So from me DS 2 gets 0/10 points

Is this related to the multiple monitor issue, or are you experiencing something different?

Different issue. On Steam there were 2 kinds of major issues reported, multi-monitor/HDMI white-screen crash vs pressing new-game loads video but instead of proceeding to the game it get's stuck infinitely creating an corrupt save and no way to get past that point; and I am having exactly the one they didn't fix. I have no idea why this works on my 2nd pc and not my gaming rig. This is literally the first game I ever had problems like this with.....

Not sure what I am really supposed to do with that. I did sort of like DS1 but I can't even get DS2 to start

And it doesn't help that every time I try something, there's an unskippable video sequence... YAY!

800 games? I call bullshit. I guess it's possible, if you buy pieces of shit like Infestation. You must have a CoC...Catalog of Crap. You probably paid into Earth: Year 2066 lol.

I don't think that's out of the realm of possibility. I've got more than 350 games on Steam, 50 on Gamefly, 20 on Origin, 50 on Android, and about 50 or so boxed copies dating from the 90s through a few years ago. And I have done a couple of boxed game purges in my life getting rid of about 100 games each time.

Also, I think Prez's Steam account alone is up over 2000.

Have any of you been outside in the last 20 years?

Yup and I still have my farmer's tan from last year!

I never understood what people have with their skin being burned. To me, absolutely no tan is way more sexy than tan. And especially a really strong tan turns me completely off. Not to mention how these girls and boys then look when they are older. Makes em look like a worn leather bag. And nothing turns me off even more than a tan, except humans looking like leathery bags. ...

But to add to the topic, I probably own about 600 games too, not that hard considering I am gaming for what amounts to nearly 20 years now. I still have my original Baldur's Gate box (Although I threw away a shit-ton of boxes when I moved, only my favorites are on display in my gaming/entertainment room ;p

But I assume you guys are not counting NES and SNES games... because I have.. literally all of them. (or at least, 97% of all) thanks to a *cough* rom dump I gotten a few years back. Now I have them all on my tablet ;p

CSB time.

Thought I'd try Dark Souls before purchasing Dark Souls II. I did not know that sitting at a bonfire respawns enemies on the level, which I find to be utterly pointless grindy bullcrap. ragequit. Now, I was getting into the gameplay and the environments are as cool as advertised.

Questions, 1) does DS II do away with the respawn nonsense? 2) if that was the only part I hated about the first 15 minutes of DS, should I buy DS II, because I'm obviously a filthy casual? Thanks in advance!

Enemies don't respawn in DS2

Sprint's sole marketable feature is unlimited data. So now users consuming 5GB/mo can expect even slower speeds than what Sprint's notorious for? Are they trying to run themselves out of business?

I agree. We've got Sprint, almost solely for this reason. Not that I'm using 20 GB a month or anything, but I do usually coming in around 5-6GB by streaming music all day and watching videos. Other than unlimited data, I wouldn't see sticking with Sprint. They only offer 3G in our town (despite forcing you to pay the $10 a month 4G fee), and while coverage in town is good, once you start to travel it's hit or miss.

heh.. 6gb
161gb for me last month That's a "low" month ;p not throttled of course and for 30 a month... sigh

That's 6GB of mobile data. Are you saying you did 161GB of data over your phone last month?

Ah.. no of course not For phone traffic you'd pay through the nose here...

If it gets bad enough, couldn't all these internet and tech companies who oppose the dismantling of net neutrality come together and work on bringing something like Darknet to the common-folk and create a new type of internet if it were to go through?

...or would that be wildly illegal because it supports terrorism and harms children?

Already exists, Internet2 - 1000gbit international connections US/Germany/Europe ... I got to use it a few times in my old it job ;/

But to use it they would have to literally dig a channel with fiber to your door, with custom (Very expensive) non stock hardware... and you'd need a server-room. Because your home router can't handle 1000gbit ;p

I once ordered a cable that was labeled as retail. It was really inexpensive so I had my doubts, and when it arrived it was OEM. I mentioned this in a review.

Shortly thereafter I got a phone call (wtf) from the seller pleading with me to change my review, proclaiming I was endangering his livelihood.

Ehm, so basically you complained for getting something of equal quality cheaper? Because that's what you did. There is no physical difference between OEM and RETAIL, but for the seller you mentioning this in amazon reviews brings up a huge legal issues and potentially blacklisting from Amazon store.

Also, it's pretty weird customer behavior to complain about that.. considering the seller saved you actual money.

Are you trollin? If it says retail package then it better be a retail package not some shit in a ziplock bag.


Pretty much that exactly. The item sold needs to match the description exactly. And any good seller knows that.


Yeah yeah, but In case of a cable there is no difference between OEM and retail. Except price and packaging

Mislabeled, sure.. maybe. But he kept the item and it functioned perfectly, no? And he paid less..... That's not something I would ever complain about.

By the way... in Germany all Amazon orders are free shipping above 20 value.. ;p

Unless it's "FSK18" - 5 EUROs p&p.

And too many games/movies at German Amazon are censored versions, so "free shipping" is not a reason to buy this sh... in these cases.

Very true, but for that you got digital retailers

Meh, Origin's not that bad. Took me three tries to install and register, which was a pain and frustrating, but since then I just leave it off unless I want to play an Origin game. I probably have a dozen or so games on there, most of which came from the Origin Humble bundle.

Not to mention you have the CHOICE not to update games. In case of modding that is a vital choice indeed.

That was an often heard complaint when Win 8 came out, that PvZ wouldn't run full screen. It's pretty hilarious that that still hasn't been fixed.

Hard to fix when the game runs at what.. 800x600 ? at least feels that way when you switch to windowed... probably more like 1024x768 but you get the idea ,p

Anyway.. free games are always nice....

It just goes to show that there are many different gamers in the world, for me Anno 2070 + Addon is nearly mind-numbing simple (As in, there is barely any challenge unless you switch on combat or play for specific self-set goals).

The early game was simple but later on when you get into research this and that the game just kind of lost me.
Maybe I'll load it up again this weekend and give it another whirl

Ah.. yeah Research can be a bit difficult to set up. Especially 3star Academy level research is not something you'll see working in 2 or 4 hours game-time It requires massive infrastructure and proper trade-route configs....

I dunno how much time you have to spend on Anno 2070 but for me average game takes like.. 30 hours.. I like seeing stuff just "work" that I setup though I am probably a borderline insane eco-sim player, for me it needs to be absolutely complex to be in any way or form interesting or entertaining. But not a spread-sheet (ala EVE), complexity needs to come from production steps and progression. Seeing all your setup production chains work right, is a great experience imo
