If I recall, there was a mod to silence the loading screens.

There was, but I'd just as rather not have to get a mod to get rid of it.

Make like the Witcher 3 and show prologue movies that explain/remind the player where in the game they are.

Oh God, please no. Hearing that same fucking bit over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again got REALLY fucking irritating. Especially when you'd fast-travel back into Velen, and the stupid cutscenes just figured you were back on the fucking Red Baron quest again...

NEVER AGAIN DO THIS TO US, CDPR! EVER.

He's an idiot. The golden age of id was around the time of Doom 2 to Quake, when every single one of them was worshiped as gaming gods. Now, yeah not so much, doofus.

$2,863.10

That is WAY low, but I've been buying almost all my games from sources other than Steam (GMG, GOG, Amazon) for the last three years or so, so I guess those don't count.

A new Amiga game for $10! You'll also need about $1500 for a used Amiga, I'm guessing?

If you sit on a bucket to take a shit instead of getting up from the PC because you're playing a game, you have a gaming disorder.

Or maybe just a really, really weirdly specific fetish.

This is step 1.

Step 2 is classifying "Filthy Console Peasant Disease", so we can hopefully cure these people and make them part of the PC Gaming Master Race.

Bethesda doesn't want to make FO76 a SP game, guys. Then they have to provide content. Don't you get it? Every dev wants to just build a map and some tools, and then let you "have your own fun in it" without all that tedious scripting and building missions and writing plot lines etc. That's all lame.

It's way cheaper and easier to just do one of these new Bare Minimum Design games.

1. Four year old review ahoy! Jun 17, 2018, 14:46 Creston
 
So I picked up Elder Scrolls Online, because a buddy at work was going to play it, and he convinced me to get it so we could team up.

So far, not really impressed with it. At all.

Let me get the good things out of the way :

- There are some really good quests in it, and from what I hear, by and large it has just solid questing. I've done a few duds, but there have been three just really really good ones, and several good quests, where I was genuinely wanting to see what was going to happen. (I've only been playing for about a day or so.)

- Huge world, with interesting places to visit. They also avoided the Oblivion syndrome, where literally every four feet there's a fucking dungeon or something. While the maps aren't empty, they also don't feel way too full.

- Everything is voice acted by mostly decent/good VAs.
- Massive amounts of crafting options.
- Large amounts of customization and build options.

The bad :

- The graphics. The design of the world is pretty enough, but everything just kinda looks like I imagine Guild Wars 2 looked if you turned everything to low. I've only seen Summerset so far, so maybe somewhere else it'll look better. But it's kinda disappointing.

- The performance. For a game that looks this mediocre, it runs like a 2-legged dog. I've had areas where my FPS drops down into the low 30s on 1080p with a 1070ti... I mean... what? The Witcher 3 looks five times better than your game, and my FPS there never drops below 70.

- Why is the main quest on Summerset not giving me ANYTHING? No XP, no money, nothing. I spent like an hour on a quest yesterday, and at the end the "Queen's Agent" who has been ordering me around is just like "Okay, meet me in this forest there!" and just walks off.

HOW ABOUT PAYING A MOTHERFUCKER?? I mean, we do the mission because "it's the main quest", but why on earth would my character bother to do this? I get NOTHING for it. Why do I give a rat's ass about why the Altmer are racist pieces of shit??

The ugly:

- The combat. Dear God is it boring. But the fact that it's boring is really not even the worst part. No, the worst part is the respawn rates. You literally have no time to examine anything anywhere, because if you do, the shit you just killed will just respawn, and you get to kill it again. I killed a boss at the end of a quest, and while I was looking around the area that I'd killed him in, he just got the fuck back up and I had to kill him again like 40 seconds later.

Note, none of this is really difficult. Because of the "Scale Everything Everywhere", there is no challenge to anything. You can go anywhere and safely assume that whatever is there, you'll be able to kill it. So it's just a boring repetition of skill, light attack, animation cancel skill, light attack, animation cancel skill, thing dies, on to the next. Repeated endlessly.

You also really don't get any more powerful, really. For 11 levels I've been pumping all my ability points into Magicka. My total Magicka has gone up by ~ 1100. The least powerful spell I have costs ~ 2900 Magicka to cast. So yay, by level 30 I'll be able to cast ONE MORE SPELL before running out of Magicka.

The "The Developers Fucking Hate You and Wish You To Die:

- The crafting bag. Look, I get it. You want people to pay money every month. Even though we've already paid money to buy the fucking game in the first place, and Guild Wars 2 was able to exist off this model for what, six years now? without any issues whatsoever.

But without paying, you do not get access to the crafting bag, ie, an infinite amount of stash space to store crafting materials. How big a problem is that?

Well, the 'loot' that drops in this game is 99% crafting materials. And there are HUNDREDS of materials. Your backpack space is 60 slots. Each material takes up a slot. See where I'm going with this?

So then I figure, okay, I'll stash it in the bank. My bank has 60 slots.

Also, half of the other loot you find has literally NO value. None. Weapons, armors, rings, whatever, a merchant will pay you NO money for them. What.The.Fuck? It took me an entire day of playing to get 2000 gold, which I needed to buy 10 more slots in my backpack...


So if you were on the ropes, or maybe thinking "I'll play this to tide me over until TES6!", don't. I genuinely am pissed that I spent 40 bucks on this. I also no longer talk to the guy at work who convinced me to fucking buy it.

For sure I won't be able to buy CP2077 here in Ozz, but that's ok. I'd rather CDPR stick to their vision and I'll import nice physical collectors box from Europe.

You can't even buy it from GOG directly?
