Still can't believe they didn't fix the inventory GUI or carry weight limits. The only 2 things that really needed fixin.
Apart from fixing some issues with high resolution, there's nothing really changed about the game according to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GepAtB6cKpM

Also, a large portion of the negative reviews on Steam complain about frequent crashes.

I just got home from work and played 6 hours straight without exiting and had not a single crash (Hit level 5)

I have noticed improved stone/ground/wall textures. Also you level considerably slower than before. I'm only just now at 5 after having cleared the entire first zone and before, I'd be twice that after doing so.

The new very hard difficulty is fun too. Enemies are dodging my arrows and I don't remember them doing that before. It could be that I hadn't played a finesse character since my first playthrough back on PS3 though.

Overall I'm greatly enjoying it. Nobody makes non-isometric ARPGs anymore, or so it seems. I miss this kind.

200 GB isn't a lot when you figure standard non-solid state drives are commonly 4TB and even your average SSD is about 1GB

I have a 2TB internal and a 4TB external, with a combined 2.78TB left to use. I don't get why 200GB is a lot unless you have a very bad internet connection and need 3 days connected to download it off of GOG/Steam.

The problem with these games is that they're always reviewed on a "first impressions" basis.

100 hours later everyone finds out the story completely sucked and ruined the game.

It always amazes me how someone can put 100 hours into a game, and then give it a thumbs down. Seems like at 100 hours you're getting your money's worth.

Those people who do that only discredit themselves when they pull that low down crap. I pay no attention to those type of reviews.

The only time I would say that this is legitimate, is if a major patch came out that totally wrecks the game. Then I can understand the thumbs down.


I dunno, I feel that if someone spends that much time on a game, then they've become an expert and know much more about it, which means their opinion is more valid than someone who played it briefly then quit. I'd trust then 100 hour negative review far more than a 10 hour positive one.

Crytek probably hasn't been making much money as they'd like over the last few years I guess. Not enough people licensing their engine, since Unreal and Unity seem to be the only two getting used anymore. That's why they took Epic's exclusivity deal money.

I wasn't too excited for it anyway. No big loss.

Maybe a year from now when it's 50% off on Steam like Borderlands 3 was a couple months ago, I'll get it.

It's going to be difficult for me to prevent myself from buying this. I don't want to ruin even a tiny bit of the start of the game, much less 4 experience levels worth. It's bad enough I watched Swen play the game twice and had some of the interactions already shown to me. I want to play this clear.

It's a bit annoying and I don't understand why it's required in this game and almost no others, but there's a 5-10 min texture optimization kinda routine it has to run first startup.

DX12 games now do this. They load the textures first.

Game is so short that people are playing through the full campaign and refunding it within two hours.

Wow. Definitely not an homage to Quake then, since even without Scourge of Armagon, it was a good 15-20 hour FPS at least.

Couldn't play all the way through since the game was painfully easy, even on the hardest setting. If you look through the reviews you'll see it's a common complaint. It's incredibly simple to build yourself to the point where you dominate even the optional bosses that the game doesn't want you to beat until the end. It's crazy. Doesn't help that there are basically only 4 enemy types the entire game that you encounter endlessly for 30 hours.

I remember when I first Installed Elder Scrolls Online about 3-4 years ago and was shocked it was 100GB. I don't really think 80 is that bad. Especially when I just put in a 4TB secondary drive. If you don't have a couple 4TB drives in your PC now, you're in trouble IMHO.

As for BL3, it's actually fairly decent. The story is really bad (I don't want to spoil it, but the "twists" in it are really ridiculous and fanfic-level dumb) but the actual shooting mechanics are incredible and the loot drops a lot better than the other games. Lots of legendaries, ala Diablo 3.

They've been trying for at least 5 years. Seems like every 3 or 8 months there's an article like the below:
https://kotaku.com/the-sad-story-behind-a-dead-pc-game-that-cant-come-back-1688358811

Beat me to it. I've been hearing rumors of ND getting NOLF for years now. Luckily, I still have my original CDs/Boxes for the first two (Not Contract JACK, however) so I don't need it too bad. Would be great, though.

Also, the NFLPA announced no preseason over a month ago, so Blue is a little slow today too. We've known that for a while now. The big question is whether or not they'll allow fans in the seats, which signs are pointing to no, they won't.

What is this, the 3rd or 4th time this has happened? I miss the old days, like when Springsteen - instead of refusing Reagan the rights to use Born in the USA - merely mocked him for not getting the intent/irony of the song's naming or listening to the jaded/anti-patriotic lyrics.

I think Joe Biden should make a campaign video set to Oingo Boingo's "Little Girls".

Torchlight 3 could've been a bigger hit than it was. Really good ARPG that did a lot of things D3 did before D3 came out. The unfortunate circumstances surrounding the devs really hurt it.

Not weak just obvious.
Do you really think that blue does not know the reason or finds it mysterious after reporting on multiple cancelations and delays in this field.
Look up satire, humor and Poe’s Law. It will help you with understanding the funny bone in almost every American.

What I'm trying to say is it's obvious it's a joke (Devolver loves them), but it's not obvious it's a Covid-related joke. Plus, it wasn't Blue that wrote the blurb in yellow, it was Devolver making the joke, not him. My reading comprehension isn't that bad.

Pretty impressive for a PS2 game. Why the fuck didn't they do Persona 5?

Golden wasn't on the PS2. But yeah, the original was, so you're half right, sort of.

As for why not P5, because it'd probably cut into their PS4 sales. Royal just came out, and they won't release the non-royal edition on PC (wouldn't make sense), so I highly doubt they'd step on their console sales, or potential console sales. Or they just didn't want to risk it and thought maybe no one would buy a Persona game on PC, so they threw out a quick port of P4Golden just to test the waters.

The real question is why not bring out Digital Devil Saga or Nocturne, which are *infinitely* better than any Persona game and much more beloved by the hardcore RPG community as well as being far away from any timed exclusivity deal, having come out in the mid 2000s.

Not a good deal considering you can get Origin Access for $30 a year.

Considering UPlay is Ubisoft's games, and Origin is EA's games, I'm not sure how that comparison works. Are you saying EA's subscription service offers more?

Steam now carries all of the EA games that EA pulled from their store, as well as all the Ubi games. So I don't see a reason to use either Origin or Uplay.

Souls-like - the thing that happened after MOBA was the thing.
No, thanks. I do understand that people like Dark Souls with its superdifficult fights, but when I come home from work and am allowed to play a game for an hour or two (she is cruel, isn't she? ), I need something to calm down and have some - in comparison to work - easy success. If I want to stress myself, I just have to go back to work.
Thankfully there are also enough games for people like me.

I'm glad someone else understands this. I like them too, and even beat the first Dark Souls (And Demon's Souls on PS3) but at 44, I don't get much chance to game and when I do, I like it to be relaxing and comforting. Something I can tune out the world in and play while taking sips of coffee. Silly, I know.

Had one guy say I "wasn't a real gamer" because I refused to buy Sekiro for that reason. Nevermind the fact that I was playing RPGs before he was born or that I played through two Souls games already. The idea of playing another "Die 50 times for 2 hours straight until you find the right pattern to win and then do it again" game doesn't appeal to me.
