it looks like a few steps removed from F3, which was already mediocre at best..

so, fuck it i guess.. probly still play it at some point, but i doubt it will be very good

the pre-made character is pretty much the only thing you need to know, not to mention no skills (a disturbing trend in AAA rpgs these days), and very limited dialogs .. its the complete death of everything "fallout"

Wait they took out the skill system and chargen?

Yeah, these are lies. There are skills and char gen. I saw the char gen myself in a video. I didn't see the skill screen, but of course there will be skills.

I've tried so hard to get into F3 but I just couldn't.
F4 looks pretty cool but I am not sure I'd like to spend the money to just abandon the game after a few hours.
Not to mention it's a $70 game on Steam. Not sure whats up with that price, even the console versions are cheaper.

Wait 70 bucks for the standard edition?

Fuck.
That.
Noise.

I think there's like only 3 games that I'm actually excited about _for real_ and this is one of them. I'd pay 100 for it.

New fallout looks mega consolized and should have retired. Packed with cutesy animations and lots of bling though guys!!

Only thing it's got going for it is 'Soldier of Fortune' dismembering.

Consolized, yeah, but bling is far from being the only thing going for it! I haven't played it, but I know Bethesda and it's always about substance, not about bling.

I realize I go way against the grain, but I think a lot of people aren't rational when it comes to The Witcher and CD Projekt. It's still a very good game, but I could write a document about all the problems it has. And I might :p

Not so. Many of us didn't like the first 2 games and loved the third. It is, in my opinion, one of the best games ever made bar none. And no, you couldn't write a document about all the problems it has because it doesn't. And you won't.

Now I have to

On another note, about the "too much content" argument, I don't think it's a case of too much content. The problem is how the content is presented. In Skyrim for example, there's a ton of content and it's never "too much". The problem with Witcher 3 is that the content is pushed into your face as soon as possible and you clearly know where it is at all times. You quest list becomes massive really fast because of the flashing job boards that you feel obligated to click on. Having these hundreds of quests makes you stressed about completing them, especially since if you wait too long, some quests will no longer give you worthwhile rewards. It's just stressful and unpleasant. You eventually get tired of the game before completing it because you've pretty much done everything.

I guess this is going to be a paragraph in my document :p

no it just sounds like you missed out on some key stuff

like one hit kills with Aard.. if I can knock down a group of 5 thugs with one blast, calmly walk over and kill them all instantly while they are laying on the ground... yeh thats pretty fucking easy dude, its like the definition of easy

so, sorry you didnt figure that out... but yeh - its definitely there

It's not my first game you know. I've played like 100 hours of this. I'm not saying it's too hard. I kill things easily and don't even need to reload most of the time. But the combat sucks. It's unpleasant. It's a chore. It's the first game ever where I turned down difficulty(to skip combat). You don't need to accuse me of anything, it's just my opinion. If you like it, great. I don't know why I'm getting into this discussion again. It always goes the same way. I'm done

I absolutely hate the combat in Witcher 3. I turned difficulty at the easiest setting last night. It's the first time I ever do this in a game. I can't stand it anymore, I just want to finish the game.

Because I lowered the difficulty, loot doesn't mean anything anymore, so not too interested in new game+...

Also, even with the new movement settings, moving around really sucks. I keep falling off cliffs and having a really hard time going where I want to go and not clipping on geometry. Don't get me started about Roach...

You bring up some good points as to why I haven't finished part 2, let alone buy part 3. Most people hated the combat mechanics of the first Witcher, but I loved it. Between swinging a sword and casting magic, it was an easy system (for me). But when the second game came out, it was clearly meant to be used with a controller. It was a bitch playing with a mouse and keyboard during ANY combat. Would you say part 3 is more of the same?

I liked the combat in Witcher 2 the best, but not because it was good, because it didn't piss me off. The combat in 3 is more similar to 2's, but it's more important to block, dodge, counter-attack and all that. It sounds good when I say it that way, but it's just a headache to deal with. Disclaimer, this is my opinion, and I realize that all of you play it on hardest and think it's easy and blah blah blah.

ive been playing it on highest difficulty since the beginning.. combat is tough, but reasonable - actually its pretty damn easy once you learn how to kill fools

its not for button mashers.. its more like a dueling system, but the AI is not exactly intelligent about it, so once you learn the patterns you can kill anything without getting hit - because sometimes one hit will kill you, but most of the time it will just severely damage you... but yeh, you have to use the blocks, use the dodge, use the roll, use the right attack when you have to, read the bestiary, etc. - its not an arkham beat em up

if you want quick kills, max out Aard - knock em down, kill em instantly with a coup de grace... works on almost all creatures/monsters/people

I turned difficulty down not because it was too hard, but because it was a chore filled with bullshit and uncomfortable glitchyness. I definitely could have finished the game without too much trouble, but I really can't stand it anymore.

Interesting. It's been almost uniformly praised on Bluesnews; your post has given me no small measure of comfort with my decision to wait for some more patches/price drops/GotY releases before I get W3.

This is at the top of my list of games to play after Witcher 3. I've heard that it gets too easy pretty quick. They added a "hard" mode a while ago, but I fear that it might be too hard for a beginner. I hate changing difficulty manually in the middle of a game. It makes me feel like all I do in the game is meaningless. It destroys the whole progression system.

The newest fad in these crafting type games is undeniably ARK. Despite the high demands of its engine it has already hit some impressive numbers.

http://steamcharts.com/app/346110

Once it gets DX12 and SLI support (both supposedly in July), I'll probably get on board and run a server of my own.

I don't really like these types of games that have more akin to Day Z than Minecraft. You can't really affect the world. You just place more models on top of it. Plus they're usually more about PVP and less about survival, which I don't like so much. 7 Days to Die is probably the best of both worlds though. Robust survival and it's "cube" based(more like pyramids actually) like Minecraft, except with good graphics.

=-Rigs-=

Nothing is obvious, but keep checking your base area and craft a bench, an anvil, a forge, etc etc etc. Use the Wiki to get going, it will save you a headache. Go exploring, find chests, and mine mine mine mine mine. Have fun.

This is bad advice for new players. The guide NPC provides all sorts of direction and is always available around the initial spawn point in the world. Don't bother with the wiki until its actually required. Go talk to the guide and he will get you started on the basics. Like most games of this ilk you should concentrate building a shelter first and foremost.

Terraria is not easily moddable, some exist but its nothing like Minecraft yet in terms of availability. You can find some here.

Yeah, the guide's crafting help feature is really good.

Minecraft isn't a fad, or a shitty game that succeeded because of youtube popularity or hype. It's one of the best games I have ever played. Simply no other game has offered me a simulation where I can impact the world so much. I played hundreds of hours. And then I played 3 times that with mods. The mods are so crazy, adding hundreds of new items, locations and systems.

Minecraft deserves all the money and fame.

I've never tried Terraria mods... I've only played vanilla and absolutely loved it. All I can say is that the game starts really slowly. It takes a long time to get good minerals to craft good armor and weapons. You'll die often. But at some point the game switches from being about survival into an exploration and combat game with crazy powerful weapons.

Every Terraria patch makes it a completely new game and all of them are completely free. I'm going to spend another 40 hours on it for the third time next week!
