The overanalyzing and nitpicking that's happening in her videos, particularly the one called Ms. Male Character, shows everything that's "wrong" in her approach and why the gaming community lashes out to her. The Mass Effect thing, for example. She fucking manages to talk shite about female Shepard (shock! I just used the gender to explain I am talking about, well.. the not-male Shepard! :O fuck off) while FemShep (SHOCK!! Again!!) is maybe the biggest proof that female protagonists can work without all the sexualization. Stuff like that just doens't work in her favor at all. She also continues to complain about why only the male Shepard is shown in advertizements. No shit. There's 3 billion reasons why only the male Shepard is shown in the advertizements and none of them are reasons that would strengthen her cause. Besides, EA even went out of its way to make the box cover in such a way that you can switch between male and female Shep.

Again, it's her overanalyzing, nitpicking, crybaby nonsense that causes this shitstorm. I started watching her videos with an open-mind, sympathizing deeply because my wife made me aware how female characters in games are often being sexified just to give the male gamers a boner. But how she approaches it -- jesus fucking christ.

We're seeing a very female-friendly Tomb Raider -- would any militant feminist complain about the latest TR? -- and a tough, awesome FemShep. Things are progressing. Though I agree with her cause, I personally disagree that she has to make such noise, with her overanalyzing, nitpicking, crybaby nonsense in videos like Ms. Male Character.

Seriously what the fuck. I somehow hadn't heard of this woman yet, really, though I had heard of the discussion going on. So, with an open mind I youtubed her and started to watch the above linked video "Ms. Male Character". After 6 minutes I was like "Where the FUCK IS THIS GOING?!" Jesus Christ save my soul!!

I understand gamers going fucking nuts due to this ridiculous shit. Fuck me. Fuuuuuck....

*will try to post a more meaningful post when his mind is cleared of the first 10 minutes of above linked shite*

Something with this much hype is making me very skeptical nowadays....
Especially with marketing buzzwords innovations like "Nemesis system" (not that I've really read up on what it entails) being thrown around. Radiant AI, anyone?

What was this thing again that they laid on so thick with every PR piece of Dragon Age 2? The frame narrative, I think it was. If the fact that a game has a "frame narrative" is something they have to use in every single fucking PR piece of an upcoming game as THE unique selling point, we should've known the game was going to be fucking shite. The joke's on us on that one.

Not really feeling it at all with this; gameplay looks a bit naff to me. Being positively surprised is always nice, though, so hoping for that outcome.

Same here. I'm still kinnnda-but-not-really looking forward to the game though. Open-world, Middle Earth, Orcs... maybe an interesting story... it can be alright. Assassins Creed combat, I'm afraid, which is why there's always a bit of vomit in my mouth where this game is concerned, though.

Can I actually PLAY as the Orc though? I haven't seen really one good LoTR SP RPG that has a tale from the Orc side of things.

That wouldn't be particularly interesting though, would it really? Orcs are pure evil and always follow orders from some other pure evil dude. And it's the cliche kinda evil -- the kind of evil that even the most homicidal psychopath would judge as such -- and not the kind of evil that's really just different perspective from what we've learned and experienced to be good. With this basic evilness, there can only be an interesting character born from it when it somehow has a conscience. A comparison most proper in this aspect might be the dark elf, Drizzt, in R.A. Salvatore's Forgotten Realms books.

Man, of all the things to be Lord over, Fallen Trailers seems pretty low on the list...

*badum pssh*

Ok I actually laughed out loud xP

Looking forward to this game! There's enough gameplay trailers, btw! People and even the developers compare this game with Dark Souls. "WRONG!" I say! I've looked at the gameplay trailers and this game is basically the spiritual successor of Severance - Blade of Darkness!
But I've already said that

Holy crap, I completely forgot about that game Severance - Blade of Darkness. Does that show how old we are if we know about it? lol

That was one of my favorite "pirated" games back then, lol. I don't do that stuff anymore though! I'm completely clean!

Ah Severance, I do remember it for it's limb chopping gore goodness, and it did have some slick graphics for it's time. Controls sucked, but most 3rd person games had crappy controls back then. I remember thinking the game was a tougher version of Rune. Ah, the good ole days.

28 years old here And arrrgh you pirated it? That hurts, because this fanboy here (who even got his nickanme "Vinnie the Great" in the special thanks part of the credits!) never forgets the bad news of Rebelact going bankrupt right after their first, fucking epic game That's on you, man! That's on you!

Die By The Sword, haha.. I tried it back in the day but I was either way too young or the controls were way too crappy. That mouse-to-sword thing just didn't work and those evil swines had me for breakfast!

Does the normal game also have co-op multiplayer?

Nope. That would add tons of complications that require tons of time and money that would inevitably make the entire singleplayer experience suffer horribly. So be glad the normal game does not feature co-op.

I have never shared this opinion and making games is hard and EA are big boys. In time the large open world RPG's will start offering Co-op play. As always an option and should be nothing different from the playing SP, just now you have friends. Party pooper.

In an ideal world, of course I'd prefer that idea above singleplayer-only. But this isn't the ideal world. Adding co-op will always cost money and time, and since the development of every game has a set budget, logic states the true *SINGLE*player will suffer -- it wouldn't be as good as it could have been without co-op.

Name any "singleplayer" game with a co-op ability within the singleplayer campaign, and I guarantee you the true singleplayer experience has suffered from it. I'll even try to give examples where and why.

And according to this interview, the CEO still doesn't get why people don't like the game and has no intention of really making the big changes needed.

It's like he's saying they made a great game and people just don't get how great it is.

And any other year, he might be able to get away with that. *snip*

But will we have Inquisition assets that only count at 50% unless we play multiplayer?? Because everyone just LOVED that part of it in ME3!



They've basically been "no it's single player, no it's single player, no it's single player," for all this time, then they delay it an extra 6 weeks and now, tadaaaa, coop multiplayer.

Marketoid checkbox... TICKED!


But all kidding aside, I actually really enjoyed the ME3 multiplayer and spent probably several hundred hours in it, so if this is as good or better, it'll be a welcome addition. I just can't help shake the feeling that it's been added only recently and will suffer because of it. Though the video looks pretty darn good.

^This. As if plucked from my mind. It's a strangely late announcement for a feature like this.

I picked it up for 10 bucks. I LOVED Season 1 and can't wait to dive in to Season 2. On a side note, I've heard people say "Wolf Among Us" is even better.

Episode 1 of TWAU gives that impression. It gets worse though. Now I don't even care enough to play the last episode! TWD 2 is better imo!

LBA2 (Twinsen's Odyssey) is one of my favourite games of all time. Definitely worth the peanuts you'd pay for it on sale.

Same here! What an absolutely fantastic game this was. It was (kinda?) open world, and gave the player a certain level of freedom that was revolutionary. Once you got the improved jetpack...! That shit was crazy, crazy awesome!

I remember the pricing like it was yesterday, and that screenshot isn't representative. A 100 guilders were most games back then, which is now 45,- and not a penny more. Console games were f120,- which is 55,-.

Not. A. Single. Game is worth 49,50 for me. Not one. And that's coming from a "true gamer". It's a ridiculous overpricing of a product and one that didn't even lower when publisher's costs drastically lowered due to the digitalization. Hell, most games don't even have hardcopies for sale anymore as far as I know!

www.kinguin.net

I paid 33,- bucks for Risen 3. It's very much worth that. As I said: 40+ hours into it and still enjoying it a fuckload. Just got to chapter 3 and it's not hinting to end yet!

Sad to see Risen 3 isn't in the list. Most ppl who give it an honest chance would see the passion the devs put into that game.

Cool thanks for the comment on it. So do you suggest we play it on easy to avoid the game's combat? I'm waiting for it to be half price.


There's absolutely nothing wrong with the combat. I play it on Hard.

What's wrong with the combat is that it is ridiculously easy even on Hard. There is no challenge and the game is a snorefest because of it.

I've been playing it for 40+ hours by now, still smiling contently as I see my hero bash the last enemy's head in and pushing him off a cliff. Shit like that happens, because the models still answer to the physics engine even during finishers. It's hilarious and awesome.

Hilarious is not exactly the word I would use. No. It's retarded and unrealistic when a 800 pound gorilla goes flying off a cliff as if it was a feather and it sucks that sometimes you can't get to the loot when enemies fall to places you can't reach.

I agree that combat is too easy. It's too easy for me, too. However, enough people think it's too hard. It's all subjective. In fact, apart from the ridiculously flawed Dark Souls combat, every open world RPG's combat is too easy for me. Easy combat can still be fun combat. I think Risen 3's combat is great fun!

As for your physics issue: who gives a fuck? Every open world RPG with a proper physics engine (ie Skyrim) has this issue

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the combat. I play it on Hard. This time, the only way enemies can "stunlock" you is when you don't drop into defense after an enemy breaks through your attacks -- which hardly happens if you time your heavy attacks right. For example, an enemy dodges your attack (you should drop into defense right then actually) and hits you before you can finish your next move... It takes too long to recover from the blow so instead you parry or dodge the enemy's next attack(s) before you see an opening again, which is mostly after a few-hits combo the enemy executes. If you have Reposte and time your parry right after dropping into defense, your counter-attack gives you the upperhand again immediately.

Sadly this will be one of those games that will get it's fame when people actually go play it, instead of just trusting the bitter words of a critic, which is when the game hits the bargain bin. Kinda like Sleeping Dogs, come to think.

Just play the "I'm killing ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL you motherfuckers!!!" way first, as it's a ton more entertaining.

A ton more entertaining I'm sure, because doing the other play was simply a soulsucking, tedious experience.

Tens of millions of Steam users? It really isn't that popular of a game.

I don't know why, it's the best stealth/action game since Thief 2 and probably the best game in a year full of great games. Any fans of the genre who haven't played it are really.. really missing out.

Hate the game, truly. It's just not fun at! It had the graphics of the Wolfenstein before the last one, was horribly easy and choosing the "good" path was skipping out on all the skills that would've made the experience at least a bit interesting.
