Read up on that 6GB thing. Ultra-high is a free texture pack you can download. It's something extra for us PC gamers and our ever evolving rigs.

Here's the game playing on a PC. But with the latest NVIDIA beast. http://youtu.be/ZE65ZyJTTDI

Generally I find games that try to be scary more stupid than frightening.

You're not wrong. The only actually-frightening game I can think of is the overlooked gem Undying.

Fucking hell that game was awesome, wasn't it? I remember reading a diary, ingame, about how she looked outside the window and into the distance at figures dancing around a group of standing stones at night. After that I looked outside the window ingame and saw the stones in the distance and imagined how scary it must've been for the girl who wrote the diary. So immersive and scary as the woman you hear wailing right behind your cellardoor.

Same boat as you... though I have noticed that to me it feels like all their trailers are re-using images from the same runthrough...

Might have to try watching that Twitch stream, because I'm starting to wonder how varied the game ends up being.

Also - any idea how kb/m friendly this'll be? Menus seem very gamepad oriented.

These are my biggest worries as well. All I've seen is this "highlands" environment, like the entire game happens in Rohan or something. Where devs often fail with PC controls is mouse sensitivity, it can have this weird and fucked up sluggish sensitivity unless you aim down the sights (with a bow in this case) and the sensitivity is suddenly so high it's near impossible to aim.

These last few days are killing me. I got really obsessed about this game since after I finished Risen 3 and got bored like shit.

this one always looked good to me.. but also im a sucker for over-the-top gore

what i wanna know more about is the part where they say you can "build an army" and take on sauron.. like is there going to be some large scale battles with RTS elemnts or something? or is it just some backgroud thing

The more orc leaders -- from whatever rank -- you "convert", the more often you will run into groups of orcs fighting eachother (yours and saurons). They will also be cells in certain assassination events, joining your side from amidst the rally when the combat starts. At the end of the game, I'm sure both examples will occur multiple times as a "grand assault" is cut into multiple little sequences of you and your orc army (read: squad) are battling toward the end goal. And that's perfectly fine.

Oh, and it's written all over the walls, floor and ceiling that your elf wraith companion is corrupt/evil. Lets see if I'm right in a week xP

It looks cool enough that I might be tempted to get it day one, but right near the end I saw a little "internet connection required" thingy. Not sure if that was just for the pre-order stuff, or if the game is always-on... Anyone have any idea?

Total shot in the dark guess: (They claim) It's SP only, with no multi. So maybe the "Challenge Mode" is one where you compare your times to those on your friends list? Or global rankings?

Just a guess, and yeah, I'm not wild about that phrase, either...

It's exactly this. Basically same reason why the Batman Arkham series "need" an internet connection. No big deal, really.

I hear the review embargo is tomorrow. Cautiously optimistic. They've at least been very open in showing gameplay the last few weeks.

3 hour stream on twitch


Holy shit, 3 hours?! Who needs reviews? xD

Off-topic since blue didn't react on the earlier e-mail..

Blue: Why do I almost always have to look on other websites for news about Lords of the Fallen? There was another gameplay vid released a few days back.

I like what I see except the level design is lacking something special which is very important to me. The game looks fun but if the levels are all so similar I doubt I will finish the game. Still on the fence but almost ready to jump off in favor of purchasing. My main concern is all the great games coming out between now and the Witcher 3.

You've got Shadows of Mordor, Lords of the Fallen, Dragon Age Inquisition, Bloodborne, and the Witcher 3... all demanding my attention to some degree or another in the next six month. Yet I still need to finish Dark Souls 2 and the DLC, a complete run thru of Wasteland 2 though playing it hardcore is a blast, DoS, plus several Kickstarter betas and releases due soon. I'm not complaining. I love games. Just going to be hard to fit them all into my real life schedule.

Apart from Bloodborne, which is console only, all the games you mentioned will be definite buys for me. Shadow of Mordor because... well, it's AC's traversal system and Batman's Arkham combat system IN MIDDLE-EARTH and Lords of the Fallen because it seems to be THE spiritual successor to Severance - Blade of Darkness Devilish

5 more days for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. I hope it won't disappoint or be a fuckjob port.

CoD: Ghost was freaking horrid. Graphics especially because it never seemed to remember my texture setup to high or ultra and resetted itself back to normal (FUGLY As FUCK!) all the time. We had the new Battlefield come out around the same time, which had graphics so freaking gorgeous I had to buy a new and waterproof keyboard.

Not looking forward to this.

Useless for me. Got Spotify Premium.

Steam Music also extracts soundtracks from games you have installed. For example, I currently have Dragon Age Origins Ultimate installed and under the Music tab it's showing me a playlist of all 18 DAO tracks from composer Inon Zur.

I'm pretty sure that Spotify Premium does not have that functionality.

Hehe, you're right about that! Though I don't have the patience to listen to soundtracks of games I'm not playing at that moment, that sure is a nice feature for those who do enjoy it.

But since Spotify doesn't put any music files on your PC, Steam can't grab anything from anywhere. So apart from the soundtracks feature, the rest is of no use to Spotify Premium users. I don't really care, though, because I almost only play SP games which don't need their immersion killed by my playlists. And if I do want to hear my music, ie when I'm playing Challange Mode in Batman Arkham Origins or the upcoming Middle-earth, I'll just play Spotify in the background...

We know. You don't seem to play games at all. :-)

As for this First Person thing... they have to do it right. Most devs only put lukewarm effort into this and the FOV of the 1st Person Mode will be so narrow the screen damn near implodes.

Can't get a proper impression of the game. While I love Divinity, what it lacks for me is immersion -- the pull into the game and story. I'm still sitting at my desk. Somehow it seems only the big guys manage to add that thing that creates immersion -- the slick cutscenes; the mystery and plot-twists.

Still haven't seen it in a kickstarter. Does this game have it..? Can't tell by the footage I've been seeing.

More hope for this one than The Evil Within. There can be so many enthousiastic previews, if the gameplay vids I'm seeing are crap... that's all I need to know.

As good as this looks, going by the history of Alien(s) games, you'd be wise to wait for reviews.

True. Same goes for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and the bad rep LOTR games have. Still, like Middle-earth, the gameplay footage I've seen looks very promising so I'm being optimistic. Never optimistic enough to pre-order, though. There's never a good reason to pre-order a game anyway. It's not like they could get out of stock. People who pre-order should really look in the mirror and ask themselves -- out loud! -- "...why?".

As for DLC / Season Passes... it's not necessarily a bad thing imo. As long as the budget for DLC is SEPERATE from the base game's budget and the base game's budget isn't negatively influenced by it in any way... well, the more content the better. The question is if this is the case. This I don't know :\

I found the one quests where you murder turtles for medicinal value to be offensive. Even a Korean game should not do that in Korea considering the senseless slaughter of animals around the world that causes so many animal populations to disappear when a sugar pill would probably be just as effective.

Seriously?

It's a fricking game... You're killing pixels, nothing more, nothing less. Much like playing Hitman, murdering a bunch of people has no actual implications for RL...

Jeebus, I really hope you didn't play AC:Black Flag or Far Cry 3. The amount of rare/endangered species you slaughtered in those games to make wallets and holsters etc were epic...

The difference is that turtles are endangered, humans aren't. Every animal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but humans do not. They move to an area and they multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way they can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. They're a plague and you are the cure.

One would be a fool to disagree with this. Watch the new Cosmos documentary, (one of) the last episodes clearly portray how we are destroying the planet. We just don't give a solid fuck because we won't suffer the consequences of our actions in our lifetime, yet we benefit from profits made. It's disgusting, really. What's even worse is that it's kind of a taboo to complain about it. This because we're all cowed into believing it's not that bad or big a deal.

Again, go watch Cosmos or read up on climate change etc.

As for ArcheAge.... couldn't care less about this MMO xD
