The EMDrive stuff is very interesting, it freaks me out to hear some of the smartest minds in the field admit it can work but that they can't explain how.

The thing that blows me fucking away about this drive, which I've been reading about for about a decade, is that no one wants to front the fucking money to actually test it in space. Point it at the moon and turn it on and if it works, then argue about how it can't possibly work. It took NASA over 15 years just to test it in their lab. It took the chinese to actually try it out first and then NASA to say "Ok maybe it works". I realize that it costs a metric fuck ton of money to send weight into space.. but I also know that we spend so little on space exploration technology.

There isn't even a scientific paper reporting test methodology and results, as far as I've been able to tell. All of the articles on it are from pseudoscience/crank blogs that just reference each other in a big circle jerk. They need to show something before anyone's going to dump a bunch of money into something that violates one of the fundamental laws of physics.

The last time they actually released any data on any of their tests: the thrust was in the wrong direction. It continued even when the power was turned off.

It's not exactly a fully published one but they are testing it with thrust output.

My nerdy friends say that this game is extremely fun.. I've watched video and gotta say it looks simplistic yet hard to get really good. Has the makings of a good, well thought out game and it shows.

I don't think I'll play it, not my style of game.

But whoever the fuck is playing these games for the gameplay is doing it wrong anyway. You play these games for Geralt, Triss, Dandelion, Zoltan and all other memorable characters like Letho, the Sorceresses or Iorveth and Roche, the (fuckable) chicks, the quests, the story, the choices, the consequences, the exploration and all that good shit.
You just have to learn to ignore the bad shit like the combat, the boss fights, that asshole of a horse, the floaty movement, poor controls etc.

This is why I think these games are great, years from now when people ask me which RPG games I liked the best. I'll say MASS EFFECT, WITCHER SERIES.

Why? Well not because they had amazing combat systems or bug-less well polished perfectly balanced games.

It'll be because they told wicked stories.

I don't get the complaints. You guys want it to be like batman/assassin's creed where you can simply press a counter button to win?

There were a few frustrating parts, until I learned how to utilize the whole beast journal telling me exactly how to beat said creature.

What game has this advanced combat mechanic that you speak of? Just curious...

The demon souls/dark souls games have a really impressive combat system for their attacks. Different weapon swings and moves causes it to have completely different outcomes from battles.

Witcher 3 basically is fast attack all the time. Strong attack does work but there's no variance to the attacks really.

It's hit attack, Geralt does a 360 sword spin jump and really isn't tactically great. It would be great if you could control his moves to do a poke, swing, overhand swing.. ETC.

I feel like they didn't focus enough time on the combat system in this game.

The combat system is simplistic and stupid.

Does it actually ruin the game? the answer is no.

Is the game still really good? yes.

Would the game benefit from a better skill based attack system? Yes.

Also, I don't dodge.. I roll. It works amazingly well on everything except for Fiends (which are in my opinion, the hardest creature in the game)

For real?

Yes. I'll update my refund communication when the refund is complete.

Not this game related but awesome news man.

Looking forward to this one, purchased it already due to the success of Dragonfall. These guys figured their mechanics and engine out and now are just cranking out new stories over and over which are awesome.

SOE should have fired his ass with the Vanguard fiasco. That could have been such an amazeballs game. And chief bean counter taking over the role? Oh yeah, that'll work out well. Rolleyes I'm guessing we'll see Daybreak games dead inside a year, two at most.

Depends, Planetside 2 is still doing pretty good.

the quote that I say from the first game all the time is

"Wiiitcher" from Haren Brogg.. the stuttering scoundrel of the docks in the outskirts.

I just kind of wished that Geralt didn't talk in such a clipped LA Quartet/James Ellroy sort of manner. It feels kind of new to this game compared to my memory of Witcher 2 and definitely to Witcher 1 and just feels jarring to me.

Geralt always talked like that (Same actor), the biggest problem I noticed between the games is how bad the voice actress is for Triss in Witcher 2 and 3 (Jaimi Babakoff).

Triss in witcher 1 was a much better voice actress (Jules DeJongh).

Give them a break - if they don't want to buy it now, that's their prerogative. Although, imo the Witcher games are an excellent trilogy to sink time into if one is waiting for other things to release like crowdfunds. It would certainly be better if there was at least a demo to try it out.

When was the last time you even saw a demo? I think I remember the very last demo I played. It was for company of heroes.
