News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - Orcs Must Die!

Found this on the Steam forums:

our guys are exploring a variety of options right now that will not be perfect, but could give you guys some more options for remapping.

Hopefully it gets added. I feel bad bitching at an indie dev for something like this, so glad someone else did.

Keep in mind that there's no key rebinding option in the game, so you are stuck in a WASD configuration.

And with a wave of your magic hand, the demo is no more, and buying this game is only a memory. The difficulty in providing a way to remap keys has once again proved too much for an indie developer. Perhaps they should hire some VB programmers.

*bitter*

I hate WASD. Fucks me up.

I think Diablo 3 release week will be pretty interesting as normally the (in)ability to play online due to demand is offset by the inclusion of singleplayer.

I don't recall having any issues with SC2. I imagine they've got the login issues worked out pretty well what with WoW expansions being several million players. Not that they don't still have problems, I just think/hope it's not going to be much of an issue.

I loved Metro 2033. Great atmosphere and graphics. Yeah, not knowing which weapon is better than another sucks, but I managed. I don't know shit when it comes to weapons, despite years of playing FPS.

I'm more worried they're going to make it exclusive to Origin.

Yep, and the steam holiday sale after that. Hold onto your wallets, it's gonna be a bumpy ride!

As I discovered over the 4th of July sale, I think I own everything I want. That makes me sad. Hopefully a few things between now and then go on sale.

I truly believe that Gabe sometimes reads the comments at Bluesnews and says things like this just to flare up the console-hating crowd that dwells here.

Doesn't he have a green tag here? I haven't seen a green in quite a while. Does Bluesnews not use that tag color anymore?

Glad my gx470 hasn't had any issue. One thing I dislike about the game is the driving. Turning is shit. And not letting me use the mouse to drive is shit too. I swear, you touch the turn key for more than a split second and you're spinning out. If that happens in a race on lap 3, you're fucked. Breaking doesn't help either.

The story is suck too, but I don't expect much there. "Go kill all these people for no particular reason." Okay, as you wish.

Ship spinning was the best part of EVE. That captain's quarters thing is utter shit and 100% pointless. I hated logging in during my last free 5 day return because it was so painful. And I didn't have a ship to spin.

80+ is shit. Cataclysm is all shit. Worst expansion out of the three. Since Vash is such a horrible zone, and Hyjal is needed for Fireland ez-mode epics, I take all my alts through there. So it's very boring now. Then you get to do Deepholm. Again. Ugg...

After getting 4 chars to 85, the rest of them will stop at 80 until at least the next expansion. If I play, anyway. I'm pretty burned out now.

It seems the people who are running it without the horrible pop-in are actually having fun. I watched the video of the ATI card with the pop-in. I can see why they'd be pissed. That was horrible. Hopefully it gets patched because the gameplay itself is great.

One thing I forgot to mention, most of the people here on Blues would probably want to play this bumped up a notch on difficulty. I'm on normal, and it's just very easy. I've only take enough damage to turn the screen red once, and that was when I got hit with a grenade.

So what's the verdict on this? Worth taking a break from Dark Souls to play or wait awhile for patches? From people who have played it only please.

I enjoyed the hell out of it. DS is on my list, but will most likely be a week or two now depending on how fast I get through Rage (supposedly not too terribly long of a game, but we'll see).

As for some of the complaints, yeah, the FOV does suck. I'm going to try the cvar thing later. I had a massive headache when I finished playing. The mouse acceleration was noticeable at first, but I got used to it. One thing that was bugging me was that the menus (your inventory stuff) seemed to go faster than the game. It was a bit annoying to bring up the weapon selection shit and have the mouse moving twice as fast.

But damn it looks good to me aside from the pop-in on the edges of the screen. And the wingstick is damn fun.

Having a lot of fun so far. Only played a bit over an hour, though. Just some quick thoughts before I go to bed:

Graphics
Graphics are awesome. Looks amazing (I'm on a GTX470). One issue is that I'm seeing pop-in on the side of the screen as I turn quickly. This isn't too bad once you go in to a small area, but if you're out on the road or in the main world area, it's very noticeable.

Weapons
Wingstick best stick. I fucking love that thing. It's so awesome decapitating shit with it. Sometimes it returns if you're not hiding behind something, otherwise it breaks and you have to buy more (you buy 5 at a time).

I'm still using the starter weapons, but the combat shotgun feels great. The assault rifle feels good too. I hope to get a sniper rifle soon because this game just screams for it.

NPC/AI
This is what I really love. You shoot an NPC and if he doesn't die, he falls over and tries to crawl away. You can shoot the helmet off NPCs. They'll stick their weapon around a corner and fire blindly. They toss grenades if you're in a hallway.

Didn't see any flanking, but there's not much opportunity for that that I can see. The missions I've done are all linear. You're basically just clearing areas out.

Oh, and if you kill an NPC from stealth and another one is nearby, the other one will notice his buddy just fell over with no head. Maybe it's a coincidence. Dunno yet.

Gameplay
Enjoying the hell out of it so far. The quests are basically to go kill shit or collect shit. But I'm also only an hour in to the game. Just seeing the NPCs try to get away after I shoot them is entertaining enough. I also like that there's a lock picking mechanism. That is, you have to build components to break locks (looks cool, too). Adds at least a reason to craft shit.

Other thoughts
I've encountered a couple of invisible walls. There was a walkway that ended near a ledge. I was unable to jump over it or move past it.

I've encountered what I would call a secret area, but only 1 so far. Had to blow a hole in the wall and then back track to get to it. Had some crystal in it. No idea what it does, but probably a crafting component.

Quick-Save isn't too terribly quick. I think I'm spoiled with ME2 and DX:HR quick save. Those were instant. This one is about 5 seconds. Certainly not bad, and honestly, it will prevent me from quick-saving every five seconds like I do in the other two games. Rounding a corner? Quick save. Opening a door? Quick save. I won't do that here. That's probably a good thing.

Overall
Loving it. Great atmosphere. Great weapons. Great NPC deaths.
