Game rocks.

Melee gets much stronger later on.

Anyone can use the specialty arrows, you can make a real nice hybrid ranger. I do Ranger/Mage after having put about 40 hours into the beta pretty much just testing character combos...

NiN puts everyone on ignore who at some point proves him wrong, and yet he talks shit about those people for no reason time and time and time again.

Classy troll... classy.

I also think "immersion" is a more bullshit term than things like "synergy" or "paradigm.".

You're so full of shit, Beamer, that you even manage to come up with dumb shit like this to say. It's all about just finding something to be an asshole about with you, I begin to realize.

There's nothing bullshit about a perfectly adequate term like "immersion". Those who value it don't automatically think they are person X they're playing.

If you want to call someone out on bullshit or call them a loon, don't say retarded shit like that.

Note: prefacing something with "I also think" implies an opinion, not a statement of fact.
If someone can't enjoy Tetris, though, because it isn't immersive, they're likely a loon.

Beamer you too often make idiotic comparisons and are no where near the mark of what is being said. Course you already know that, you just argue for the sake of arguing.

Which would be fine if you were right and people just didn't like to hear it, but you are mostly self-serving and a whole lotta wrong.

I'm a PC gamer. The one that defines himself as being pro the following: story; gameplay; immersion; graphics.

One of the weirdest things I've ever seen written here. Ever.\
Because no other gamer may value that?
Because PC games always have to value that, otherwise, what, they're "console crap" even if PC only?

Well, while perhaps not articulated as well as he might have, I largely agree with Quinn on his points. Most of those things are done better on PC.

- Story: Can be done equally well on either platform. Probably his weakest argument.
- Gameplay: PC gameplay, with it's vastly greater precision and number of controls, is simply more interesting and compelling.
- Immersion: The most immersive style of game is the FPS, and mouse control mimics natural movement much more closely than a controller. Higher resolution and options such as draw distance and AA which are superior on PC also add to immersion.
- Graphics: It's not even a contest.

The PC often has the best graphics. But c'mon. Minecraft has poor graphics and no plot. Is it a lesser game? How about teleglitched? Pixel Piracy?

The whole PC master race bullshit fails because most people claiming it are idiots. You articulated the benefits of pcs fine. He just came across as a loon.

Ever play Minecraft on a tablet or xbox? Yes, on those it's a VASTLY lesser game on every front, and you aren't even considering the mods/multiplayer/utilities/etc.

But then again, Beamer is the "Desktops are a Niche Market that is rapidly shrinking" garbage spewer, so I don't pay attention. But calling HIM a "loon"... contradiction again and again you go...

I'm tickled that Divinity: Original Sin keeps popping between #1 and #3 - really quite an accomplishment for a Word of Mouth kick-started game, and well deserved.

Thanks for all the feedback, sounds like my kind of game and I'm pumped to see so many solid RPG games on the horizon - it's sure been a long time comin! I'm a sucker for these types of oldschool western RPGs...

How does LoX play right now Horrorscope? After you mentioned it a bit ago I looked it up and it did look like the kind of game I'd play - but with D:os around the corner I figured I'd wait to plunge.

Also I sometimes slow down games like beat-em-ups and pinball games, it's just more fun sometimes...

hey hey, another majority on Bluesnews actually excited and/or pleased about a game. Kudos. One that's kickstarted, no less.

I gave it a go about a week ago, a Fighter/Cleric combo. I found it damn slow, both movement while exploring and battle system even compared to Baldur's Gate. However, I absolutely intend to try again and will give the Rogue/Cleric idea a go. The Rogue was my alt choice originally.

I use CheatEngine's speedhack and bolster game speed 75%, (1.75), yeah movement and combat speed are laborious, but with simple tools like this and SweetFX we can take things in our own hand with little effort. All part of the PC package to me.

Yeah playing the beta if nothing else lets you know what you'll want to do when it is released. For example play Hard, because that is more like a Normal, or what used to a Normal. Or things like what it takes to get as many AP points as possible, how to build that up, since all your moves in battle are based on that.

Ya Cheatengine's speedhack is the best thing - I use it for so many single player games I have no patience these days, and can do 3x the amount of stuff in a fraction of the 'fluff' time...

I started back on my Amiga with a plug-in hardware accelerator (Supraturbo 28) and never looked at games the same way since...

I sent this to Blues literally as soon as the almost 3 gig update started... and then waited for hours and hours till I had to go to bed. Should be fully accessible in a couple hours.

Haven't been this pumped since NwN, game is killer.

I bought Suvarium awhile ago for access. While the game can be fun, it is RIFE full of hackers to the point of nausea.

There has been no meaningful updates, zero cheat protection, and they pretend to "police" but have absolutely no way to tell who is cheating or not.

Of course console DLC's come at a premium, they always do.

PC gamers aren't content starved and most have a better understanding of what is worth spending their money on.

Hey Quinn! I can help a bit:

1. The release will have voice acting aka Baldur's Gate style. Not over the top, but enough for people who want or expect it.

2. Other classes can get environmental type weapons too, Ranger being the one who gets the most with all the arrow tips for fire/frost/etc. Some environmental effects aren't immediately obvious like blood for witches. Aside from oil/water/etc barrels and things you'll find peppered in encounters, strong melee types can carry them around and throw them into the mox - so while wizard gets the most raw o immediate ones, there's no lack of it through other options.

3. Default clerics are water (Hydro) spells, but you'll want to edit and experiment in the beginning with the skill choices so you can get familiar with the different choices. There's alot of mechanics and I agree there's a lot that could be explained better, Ive gotten by with trial error and the global chat.

4. Not sure. Was he -10 before hand? I haven't paid much attention to the attitudes in the past (unless I got someone mad to the point of attacking), so I can't help much here.

It's pretty much been solid polished for quite some time now, they just keep tweaking but it's been one of the best beta/EA experiences I've had -- from solid game-play, lots of meaningful patches / dev interaction, and a great community.

Hop on, try some vanilla 'classes', kill some stuff/play with the engine, go back and design your own classes, kill some more stuff, do even crazier engine stuff, all the while chattin with people and getting questions answered - easily will keep you going till release.

I give it another year and every one of us will be ignoring everyone else.

Should make the comment section interesting for the lurkers.

In life you either bury your head in the sand and live in your own reality, or you have the balls to deal. There's a few people here who are not worth my reading time, but I don't bury my head in the sand in life, and certainly wouldn't in some forums.

The vast majority of "ignorers" are people who love to dish out, but never take -- there's a couple exceptions, but not many.

In the case of Darks there, I provided undeniable proof that he was the negative Nancy he was accusing me of, and he couldn't take it - so Darks resorted to name calling proclaiming an "ignore" in an futile effort to make himself look better - that's kid stuff and I'm fine with it - he'll learn eventually or the world will eat him up.

Ya the saves reset every patch. Didn't bother me since I've spent the majority of the time experimenting with builds and it's been early access.

Course there's been a few saves I certainly wouldn't want to have continued anyway, kinda hard when you attempt to rob and kill every npc...!

Haven't wanted to play a Far Cry game since the first (and imo the best one).

Definitely don't want to start again with FC 4...

Do you ever have anything positive to say about games or is it your just a grumpy assed person in general?

A quick check in my generally positive post history shows a stark difference from your generally negative history.

What really adds to forum acidity are people like you, Darks, who insult for no reason with no justification -- an attempt to make your selfish, bitter self feel better.
