Read this weird report that Rebellion is illegally revoking many Steam keys and even removing the game from people's library. Weird story with a tail I'm sure!

Here's the source

News Comments > Divinity: Original Sin Beta Toolkit
6. Re: Divinity: Original Sin Beta Toolkit Jun 27, 2014, 11:54 Quinn
 
Bought the game a few days ago. I didn't manage to invest allot of hours into it, mostly because of the knowledge that my save games will disappear.

If you already own the game but haven't touched it yet, I strongly advice to start touching it. Put... like, 6 hours into it so you know what you want your main build to be. I started with a Fighter + Cleric combo but thanks to the 6 hours I put into it I now know I want to start my official run as a Rogue + Cleric.

If you're patient because you want the perfect experience, think about how perfect the experience will be when you realize 6 hours into your game that you've picked the classes that just don't move you enough.

News Comments > Sleeping Dogs Developer Making F2P Game
6. Re: Sleeping Dogs Developer Making F2P Game Jun 26, 2014, 17:52 Quinn
 
F2P. The worst model ever. It just doesn't work.

1. People add an almost irrational amount of worth to a product they actually have to pay a relatively large sum for;
2. Pay 2 Win -- F2P games are dominated by obsessed lowlifes within days, which are few and far in between which makes it a target group you really don't want to target;
3. See point 1. Can't stress it enough. Human psyche is a bitch and it's one of the reasons smartphones can be so retardedly expensive and actually sell.

I don't hate Germany, as a nation or as a people, but I do hate the fact that they have attempted to gloss over WW1, WW2, and the Holocaust in their history books and popular culture.

That's right.. Germany glosses over the holocaust.... one of the only nations on the planet where denying the holocaust is a crime... sigh

Your basis for this claim is what exactly?

Grudgebearer, I'm sure you'll love Saving Private Ryann, where every single German was evil incarnate. Even that German soldier that was shown mercy. Fuck me, he didn't even reluctantly rejoin his German allies, he freaking enjoyed being an asshole! Not to forget the German who grinned like a downright maniac as he dug his knife into a throat. It's the kind of overrated shit-movie that would please the ignorant fools like yourself.

Granted, the movie has the best D-day scene EVER!

There's a particular scene in Band of Brothers and I've been searching the web for a while to find the part and failed. It really stuck with me. I don't mean the scene where the German general does his final speech to his surrendered troops -- which was also moving! -- but the one where the surrendered German troops were all marching down an open road, the Allies in trucks and tanks in the middle, where one Allied soldier kinda flips and starts shouting in utmost rage to the surrendered Germans, something like "You cowards! How could you fight for a cause so downright evil and follow this psychopath of a dictator" blablabla it was a strong part and a necessary part because every single one of us must've felt the same way at some point. Of course, the human psyche is more complex than that. Yes, they were cowards. But if the alternative was a bullet in the brain, you, too, Grudgebearer, would've probably put them Jews on a train, albeit reluctantly.

That's 3 to 4 dollars an hour for that Valiant Hearts game. Hell, with that reasoning I would've bought Skyrim for $1200,-!

No thank you. Quality is worth allot, but longevity at least equally so, I argue.

Well done! As long as it's not an IPA, I'm sure it's a good one xD The belgium beers trump all, of course. Try Westmalle or one that may be hard to get in the USA -- Gulden Draak.

As for this game: It's not what the industry needs or wants.

Couldn't agree more with allot of comments here. All games that come from CryTek feel like Techdemos. I was never excited about any game they put out. I've always seen them as overambitious guys, which is a tricky trait indeed.

News Comments > Watch Dogs Patched; PC Graphics Explained
15. Re: Watch Dogs Patched; PC Graphics Explained Jun 23, 2014, 14:35 Quinn
 
Crysis 3 looks gorgeous. Even Far Cry 3 looks gorgeous. The Witcher 2 looks absolutely gorgeous.

I can't call Watch Dogs gorgeous. Neither with the mod. The entire game is meh and a few little hours (3?) into the game I realized that no matter what the coming missions offered, I just knew I'd already seen everything the game had to offer.

I was right. There are 5 gameplay styles this game offers:

1. Hacking your way toward a thing you need to hack;
2. Knocking out a target surrounded by other enemies to knock out;
3. Stopping a convoy with a predetermined path by any means necessary;
4. Chasing a guy through a street and mashing the action button until the game decides you're close enough;
5. Car chases, which end within 5 seconds because the streets are littered with steam-pipes which immobilize cars instantly once triggered.

It's just so.. MEH! And I keep wondering: What, then, does GTA (IV & V) add that makes them... not meh? I'm simply not sure. Even their cities feel more vibrant while in WD, too, you can enter stupid areas and play stupid mini-games...

Anyway, I still LOVED my hours in Watch Dogs... but that's because of the online invasions -- which are simply revolutionary great.

Ah, good to hear that there's at least coming some voice acting! Ad thanks for the other tips!

I also found out some real fun thing today. You can "distract" moving NPCs with one companion by entering a conversation with them, then switch to your thieving character and steal stuff behind their back xP

This game reminds me of the old Divine Divinity allot somehow. I love it alteady even though I'm not committed yet due to the immenent saves removal ^^

Getting it tomorrow morning!

Bought the game, Divinity Original Sin. Great fun and first experience playing as a Fighter and Cleric combo. Not sure if you're still reading this thread, Axis or any other DOS player, but here's a little something I have to say:

1. I feel like a spoiled little brat because I really REALLY miss the voice-acting. I mean, I don't need it Skyrim-style but... really, can't NPCs at least say "Good day!" and enemies scream shit like "They're here! Kill them!" every now and then?;

2. The environmental manipulation -- it's so much fun! BUT... isn't it a dead-give-away that every second companion kinda needs to be a wizard?

3. The game isn't holding my hands, which is fine, but how can I find out what kind of stats my Cleric needs, for example? When I hover over the Int attribute, it tells me it improves your skill with Elemental and [something else] Spells... but what kind of school does the Cleric use? I'd say Light, but that doesn't exist.

4. Why do I get a -10 attitude penalty toward an NPC I succesfully persuaded?

I agree. He's almost moreso entertaining than he is useful.

What I'd like to see is a journalist that splits his reviews up in two sections: Objective Observation and Subjective Blabber. The first part telling us what the game offers and what the bugs are, the second what features he likes and dislikes. Etc. Etc. Hell maybe i'll start my own site someday.

uplay and ubi sucks. Never touching anything that uses uplay in my life.

So then you're either pirating (shame on you!) or actually missing out on allot of good games (your loss!) due to some useless principle. For me, Uplay works just as well as Steam -- you start it up, click the game you want to play and you're done. As a bonus, Uplay rewards you Uplay points for some achievements with which you can buy ingame rewards (aka achievements actually mean something).

Alright! Hmmz something keeps me from buying because it's still "early access". Does it still feel beta, or does it actually feel finished now that it's 10 days prior release?

Watch Dogs starts to bore me so I started on Sniper Elite V2 but I really ache for a new, great (A)RPG so much 10 days feels like forever.

Do not buy Dead Rising 3. It is capped at 30fps on PC.

Boo hoo if that's a dealbreaker for you...

Many reasons not to buy a game, but FPS lock? A solid 30 is more than fine for most things unless you have a 400 dollar video card to justify.

Except for racing games, fuck that shit. What are they thinking.

Who called in this airstrike o' bullshit? Damn, boy! Hahaha_no

Oh wait, you're being sarcastic! Yeah, that has to be it. It would be the simplest explanation and lucky for you I'm all for Occam's Razor. Golfclap


jimnms and Axis,
Thanks for the info about the SP campaign! I'm pretty sure I'll buy the game today. Shite shite shite the house is a mess and I promised me girl I'd clean it today Raincloud

If you don't already own Divinity: Original Sin, that's an absolute no-brainer purchase - jump on it.

Has that come out yet? I thought it was still in development.

It's early access still. I'm waiting til it comes out, I swore off all early access and Kickstarter stuff no matter the pedigree of the devs. Hopefully it'll be great as expected but I don't mind waiting and paying an extra little bit of money.

The release date is still set for June 30, 11 days from now. If you're planning to get it at release, might as well grab it now and take advantage of the discount.

Yea the game will be released on the 30th, editor sometimes afterwards. The game itself is incredibly fun, kind of a mashup between Baldurs Gate and oldschool might and magic games, but with one of the most enjoyable 'environment' engine I've ever played (physics, item interaction/reaction, elements, etc) - lots of freedom & strategy and designed to be completely mod-able. The single player game has an in-game chat system that anyone can participate in, really adds something special and it's being kept in release. Such a minor thing yet adds so much while playing.

I have very little patience for redoing content, but its been a joy every patch (they break the saves) since everything is so varied and done so well - I've done the intro mission/early content about 6 times and I have absolutely no patience for that kinda stuff normally.

The community is overwhelmingly positive, just read the forums -- It's worth a check if you like RPGs.

You are convincing me to buy the game friday, tomorrow. But one honest answer: How does the singleplayer campaign play? Is it immersive and does it really involve the player or are you just running around killing things and looting?

Of course it's not going to be an MMOOOOO -- stuff of the herd.

It is, however, going to destroy that lovely illusion that there's only one player/protagonist that saves the day -- and that that's me. :'(

I've got a gripe with the hacking & tailing part. There are tricks to know exactly when a player is in your game, way before the game warns you. This kills the element of surprise. It kinda kills the whole concept.
