I can't remember the last time I've even seen a Flash ad. Most sites that have video still require Flash though, and I absolutely love ActionScript 3. I'll be sad to see it go.


Also, I am one of the 6 in 7 earthlings who don't have, never have had, and never will have a Facebook account. I don't feel I'm missing much.

I believe Lionel Hutz has something to say about The Never Ending Story.

And no spoilers for you! Just sit back and enjoy the ride. It's one of those games that you think it's ending soon, but it's not. If you're doing a lot of completionist work you can expect it to end around the 150'ish hour mark +/-. 100+ seems to be the average around here. I believe I did it in 132. I got the bittersweet ending. It made me a sad panda. We'll see what happens next time through as the expansions arrive.

I'm not sure what my play time is, but it's up there. I've been trying to complete everything, but damn that is a monumental task! It's interesting how the game itself logs how much ACTUAL playtime you have, but then the GOG launcher shows you how long you've had the game running. I'm assuming the game pauses its internal timer whenever you go to the main menu or have the game paused or whatever, so that's probably the more accurate number. I need to check it when I get home.

I. FUCKING. HATE. THAT. NAME.

Why the fuck can't they call the first one "Divinity: Original Sin" and the second one "Divinity 2: Second Coming" or something? Dumb.

Because they already have a game called Divinity II?
Seems an odd thing to get upset about.

I'm mostly kidding. But it is a name that feels a little awkward and unwieldy...

I'm still so, so far from the end. The game is ridiculously huge, I know what the "halfway point" is, and I'm not there. It's almost too long of a game, I play it in spurts...might play for 8 hours straight, then not touch it for a few weeks. The amount of dialogue is staggering, although it still feels weird when Geralt says shit out loud that no one would (so the player understands what he's seeing from clues).

Great game, got it free with my video card but gladly would have paid for it. Do the sales represent copies that came with cards?

What is the halfway point? Is that when he finds Ciri finally? I don't want this story to ever end.

I bought the Collector's Edition for $150, and I think it was worth every penny. I don't care what anyone says. Best. Game. Ever.

Huh? Oh, no, I don't think that's what it meant. They're saying that therecommended requirements, once finalized, will run the game at 1080p @ 30fps.

Why 30? It's 2015. Xbone and PS4 can't handle 60 FPS?

Of course not. They run AMD hardware which is always behind by 10 years.

Can entire combat be modified so that it doesnt suck?

The combat could surely be improved but why does it suck?

It's console combat.

Button mashing doesn't work on Witcher 3, it's more likely to leave you dead just like in the second one.

The combats gets too easy when you outlevel the content by a significant margin. I remember doing quests 3 levels above my own and I had to use every trick in the witcher book to stay alive.

I particularly remember doing one where I had to kill 3 drowners that were 5 levels above me. The fight took 10 minutes, and at the end I was potionless, bleed almost to death, my good crossbow bolts all gone and feeling pretty great that I did it.

Weird. I never use potions, and I've been using the starter bolts the whole game, seeing no real reason to use any of the upgraded ones you find, and when I first started out, I remember tackling a Witcher contract at like level 9, and the contract was for level 19 or 20. There were several huge arachas around a cave, and I remember my attacks were doing almost no damage, but I was using the hell out of quen and igni, and after what seemed like more than an hour, I was able to finally take them down. No potions used, just the occasional food consumption. Now that was a rewarding battle.

But the boy didn't have dirt on him, therefore he was a budding PC gamer. Maybe the kite flew like that after he typed a cheat code on his keyboard such as PCMR.

I love how the wind in the grass and trees looked.


Notice how they conveniently avoided showing the water when the kid supposedly fell into it, and they made it so he didn't have to run through it? Is it really that hard to create ripple shaders and a couple simple splashing particle emitters? Lazy console devs. >:\

Pfft! That's not realistic at all! A kite would never continue flight without the person at the other end of the string keeping pressure on it. That's the whole reason a kite works at all! Stupid, unrealistic console physics. Maybe the console peasants will like this engine because the kite does all the flying for them, but for any REAL gamer, this engine is trash! >:\

This looks like something that belongs on a cell phone, not a PC. And the only reason shit like this is okay on a cell phone is because you can't play DOTA2 on one...

I have a 65" samsung hu9000 (or something like that) in one room and a 55" lg oled in the other, and the oled leaves the samsung for dead.

Can't go back to LCD again... just waiting for OLED monitors to come so i can ditch the technology altogether.

OLED has MASSIVE problems with burn-in right now. You should try quantum dot (JS9000/JS9500) before you swear off LCD. There's even a 48" JS9000 which a lot of people are using as monitors, and it's glorious.

They haven't? I guess I just had a dream about the Vive then. And Steamboxes. And in-home streaming. And Source 2. And HL3.

Yes its great, but then again they have made no efforts to do anything else either so with a company of that size and talent is shameful.

A game from 2006 still being updated and supported, and which has a huge community even still in 2015 is something of a feat to be appreciated, I think.

Well, I was sorta looking forward to Windows 10 (still using 7, haven't touched 8 at all) but this... this seems like a step in a scary direction. Wouldn't be surprised if, ironically, it leads to more people pirating it.

I doubt that 10 will be pirated since the activation is actually stored on MS servers rather than on your machine like previous editions of Windows did.

That doesn't even matter. You just crack the part of the software that checks for that. No big deal.

I don't even like my own spit on me, but some mangy mutt that sits around licking its asshole and eating its own shit all day? I'll pass, thanks. I hope that kid didn't come away with scurvy or tuberculosis or some shit. XD

Sounds like you don't need to be a pet owner then.


Oh, I love all my pets. I also don't let them lick my fucking face. They also don't belong on the couch or the bed unless they're a cat, because they're way cleaner. When's the last time you had to give a cat a bath because it was too stinky?
