Ray Marden, sure it's possible to complete a fight with normal enemies by just countering. The only downside is that it takes 20 times as longer and your score will be lowest of the low. Playing as it's meant to be, it's harder but more satisfying in every way. Honestly, I'm having a really REALLY hard time thinking of a better melee combat system. In fact, although I am at work and kinda preoccupied, I can't think of any.

Hate the fact Arkham Origins isn't in this list. The game has gotten an unfair amount of bashing. The game is completely on par with the prequels! There was this one cutscene where Alfred confronts Bruce for being arrogant and suicidal, and Bruce enters that discussion heads on. It was one of the strongest moments I've seen in years.
"Every time a thug thinks twice before hurting an innocent person, it's because of fear. I am that fear, Alfred!" Etc etc. The voice-acting and everything was totally perfect. I've never been a fan of Batman or any other superhero, but during that cutscene I felt like fan #1 xD

News Comments > Diablo III Reaper of Souls Trailer

I've seen a shocking lot of familiar templates and enemies. It actually looked like I was watching a Diablo 3 (vanilla) trailer, if I exclude the pop-up texts.

I gotta say that I liked the graphics and gameplay in D3. The thing that made me a disappointed gamer was the miserably bad and short campaign, and the horribly random loot. I mean.. there's randomly generated loot and there's RANDOMLY GENERATED LOOT, you know? Also, my mage ran around with a 2H battle-axe because of it's dps. So retarded. Anything of this shit fixed by now?

Time has made you guys soft. ME3's ending really was as bad as the nerd-rage made it look. Think back on it long and hard, and remember.

I'm pretty sure I've played Mass Effect 3 far far far far far more times than you have. I'm also pretty sure that when the original ending came out, I was pretty fucking pissed at it, but I felt that they fixed my main issue with it (that every single one of them was identical and left the universe totally, utterly FUCKED) when they released the extended cut and retconned most of the bullshit.

I've also played their "look, we can't call it an ending DLC because Mac Walters would cry like the little whore he is, but really, this is simply the Ending DLC." in The Citadel DLC.

With the extended cut and the Citadel DLC, I have no issue with the way ME3 ended. Sure, the Catalyst/Star Child/Space Magic bullshit is still just plain fucking stupid and annoying, but that 15 minutes of Mac Walters drooltardery doesn't invalidate 100+ hours of excellent gaming, nor does it invalidate further stories for me.

If it does for you, then simply don't play the next one. Problem solved. I'm still definitely looking forward to it.

Oh, and:

The whole universe is getting fucked by Shepard and the Reapers anyway

No, because they retconned that. In every single ending, but especially the Destroy one, you see that the galaxy rebuilds, the gates get put back together, Earth is rebuilt, etc. No longer do the gates explode and wipe out the large majority of inhabited solar systems (which they stupidly just forgot about in the original ending, despite making such a big deal about it in the Arrival.)

Fair enough. I admit I've never played The Citadel DLC. Reason? Same as my last comment, ofc!

I wonder which ending would be cannon for the next installment.
Blue perhaps? Controlling reapers felt wrong, but other choices eliminate things very unique to the Mass Effect world. (Red:AIs/Geths, Green:distinction of machines and organisms)

None, since the next game will be set BEFORE the first trilogy, or perhaps during. They've said that the end of ME3 is the storyline endpoint for the entire universe. Now they'll tell stories that happened earlier or at the same time.

No idea how ppl could get into that. Why should I give a shit about destroying blackmail data for person A and killing a druglord in another sidequest? Why would I give a shit about stopping the Adolf Hitler of the Mass Effect universe? The whole universe is getting fucked by Shepard and the Reapers anyway. Knowing this certainty kinda removes the will to live in that world or try to fix it.

Well, Aero, I don't really agree with you at all. You're giving the entire frenchise way too much credit.

To me the games have always felt like being on rails. The only thing that made the Black Ops games a tad better than all that similar shit was the fact that story-wise those games had much more of a hollywood feel. Yes. That's what made the Black Ops game stand out. Somehow.

These games suck and have always sucked.

The only reason I'm slightly considering to fund this game is because I don't wanna end up with a pathetic freighter why everyone else is flying in his bad-ass ship because they did fund the game.



I just wanna wait and see if this game is actually any good before I buy it. I feel like I'm being punished for that logic.

These are the same idiots that said a console controller is the only and best way to play an FPS.

They're nothing but trollbait.

One developer kept PC and console players from mixing on the same server -- not for technical reasons, but because PC players destroyed the console players.

Those clumsy console controllers are just hideous compared to keyboard and mouse. Learned that the hard way with Max Payne way back when. Had both versions, no comparison.

Playing twitch games on a console is like assembling a ship in a bottle using long, thin tools.

This. I've always had my hate-speech ready when talking about consoles and their controllers. Then my wife bought me a PS3 for my bday so she could chill on the couch watching while I was gaming. Since then, I hate and appreciate consoles more. It's a real paradox: I've realized that playing games on a console is even worse than I thought, but I also realized that it's SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY. You don't play console games for the immersion (I NEVER leave my livingroom); it's much more arcadey.

I watched my sister's man play Modern Warfare on his PS3. He's considered pretty pro. What I saw.. was horrible. I honestly think I would've won that match with zero deaths and all the kills if I had somehow dropped in there playing on my PC with kb/m.

Consoles really are worse than PC's in every way. I realize this now, it's more clear than ever. Ppl who prefer consoles over PC's just can't be arsed building a sweet gaming PC and invest in it, and/or just have no fucking clue what they're missing out on. True story.

I never complained about DX:HR before it got out. I saw the gameplay, analyzed it, and knew what to expect and I knew that was good.

Honestly, I think I'll actually enjoy THIEF and I'm looking forward to it. But can I already say this isn't the sequel I wanted? Yes. The reasons are all over the place.

So far the only really negative review I've seen for Batman has been the Destructoid one. So I guess it's safe to say that it's at least solid if not great.

This sums it up well.

Seriously, I'm fucking sick of that "originators" argument. It's like people who are too pussy to have an opinion of their own just keep repeating the opinion that has the most hype.

I've played Arkham Asylum twice. I've played Arkham City twice. I freaking love the games and I know their shit like the back of my hand. This third title is exactly like the first two: the combat is great fun, the graphics and gameplay are solid, the story is meh but keeps you going. If you're unbiased and you've actually PLAYED THE FUCKING GAMES, then this game will be a blast if you liked the earlier ones AND you didn't expect any remarkable innovation.

The game still has predator/stealth encounters; cool and fun gadgets; a noir Gotham mood; many thugs to fuck up; combat points; etc.

I agree with you that the literal fucking around and fumb fistfights are unnecessary. In any other game -- like God of War an GTA (the sex) -- I know it's put in there to bring in the youth group that only just found out that shaking their cock feels good and are in their Compulsive Masturbation Disorder period. But in The Witcher's case I don't feel that way -- it really makes that disgusting world complete.

It always seems weird to me that Geralt says he loves Trish so much, but never really hesitates at the opportunity to stick his dick in whatever succubus (literally) happens to be available.

I always make him keep it in his pants, except for one playthrough where I just played him as not really giving a shit about Trish anyway.

He's like that in the books too. From what I remember he loved some sorceress (Yennefer?) and she died so now he fucks everything that may slightly remind him of her. He's a broken dude.

edit: Hmm after looking it up I don't think she died... I think I'm mixing a few stories up. But Wikipedia says this so I think it's still her that he's obsessed with all the time, "Yennefer is Geralt's "soul mate" although their relationship is difficult and full of drama. Both Geralt and Yennefer are sterile, which adds another level of tragedy to the mix."

Yennefer is taken by the "Wild Hunt" before Geralt's amnesia. The Wild Hunt is thought to be a bunch of immortal specters -- actually, scientists think more of it as a "phenomenon". As Gertalt's memory returns more fully in The Witcher 2, he finds out the Wild Hunt are some sort of "elves" of pure evil from an entirely different dimension. By the end of The Witcher 2 he knows they probably still have Yennefer.

The Witcher 3 will be all about that, I think. I can't wait to finally bring the fight to the fuckers of the Wild Hunt!

Yup, that felt weird to me too. I, too, played the game being loyal to Triss, and then another replay being a manwhore for curiousity's sake.

Nah, let's face it, the consenus is people either really like these games a lot or just find them really meh. I'm in the meh category.

Me too. I'm also in the "meh" category for Game of Thrones. To me they're both just excuses to act or seem "mature" through sex, politics, and action sequences. For me, fantasy should be just that: fantasy. Give me a hero (and a sidekick or best friend), a villain (with appropriate minions), a love interest (with something to keep them apart), and a MacGuffin (with plenty of sidetracks). Obviously that doesn't have to be the sole or exact template, I'm just explaining the difference.

An example of a game fitting this would be FF2 (which has no sex, no convoluted politics, and no QTE's or asinine combat/crafting components) and of entertainment media, the Harry Potter series (same deal). Then again I guess if I want a "mature" fantasy RPG I need to randomly sleep with chicks, roll dice, fistfight, and dodge my way around enemies. Or perhaps I need gratuitous violence and sex, incest, rape, murder, etc.

Fact is, I can already get all of that in real life. I get enough of it as it is. Sometimes I just want to enjoy an RPG or fantasy where I actually have some attachment or connection with the protagonist...I'm sorry but Geralt does nothing for me. Quite frankly, The Witcher series to me feels like it harkens back to the action-style RPGs on consoles, which I have no problem with but to embrace games like that and then turn around and shun console players is hypocritical. Seriously, The Witcher 2 did not feel at home on a PC except for the graphics and the pointlessly complex crafting. Then again I could say the same for Dark Souls, which I also didn't care for, for similar reasons.

That being said I do appreciate CD Projekt's efforts with GOG and on DRM, even if their past with it is not spotless.

No idea how you got to the conclusion that Geralt's character fits that of console game characters. It's the complete other way around: the stereotypical template you described, that's console games/chars all the way.

Except for his whore-hoppin' attitude, I love Geralt. He's by far my favorite character. He's complex; chaotic good, sometimes shockingly stoic and other times remarkably empathetic. Yet, somehow it all makes sense.

I agree with you that the literal fucking around and fumb fistfights are unnecessary. In any other game -- like God of War an GTA (the sex) -- I know it's put in there to bring in the youth group that only just found out that shaking their cock feels good and are in their Compulsive Masturbation Disorder period.

Didn't read the Destructoid review, but no idea what that whining quote is talking about two comments down or so. Reviewers tend to search like obsessed bloodhounds for crap just because it's not done by Rocksteady.

I've said this in another thread already: Ppl who moan about Arkham Origins are probably just disappointed there's little innovation. The game isn't as perfectly flawless as the earlier two, but it's still amazingly awesome; the combat is still amazingly fun.

Juat try the game and stop listening to bitter reviewers who live to bitch.

Is it just me, or do they attack a lot sooner now? I am noticing they are almost crowding me when I am fighting someone, I am CONSTANTLY doing a counter move. Wasn't this in your face before. A nice change, since the fighting in the previous 2 were easy, they would really spread out and let you get tons of long combos. This one you have to be smarter.

Not just you. Bad guys are more agressive, and so is Batman. I like the change too.

Same here! The change is obvious. At first, due to uncharacteristic failures from my side, I thought the counter warnings were later than before, giving me a shorter time to react. But maybe it's just that they attack much more often. Or maybe it's actually both. This or that, I love it. I wanna be an Apex Vigilante all the time so it really pushes me to be better.

Love the game. Can't wait to get home from work!
