Hmm...I have all DLC except Dawnguard, which means I don't qualify. Kinda interested, but enough to warrant buying a DLC for.

Oh man! I *loved* Wonderboy 3! Total nostalgia overload from that reveal trailer.

Probably the greatest Master System game, and massively overlooked classic IMO.

Amen to that.

Just mod the Griffin armour, looks terrible. Geralt looks like he's been at the pies.

I gave up toward the end. There was something about the levelling and loot which meant that I never felt like I was actually getting any stronger, and all the weapons felt similar without lacking any real identity or rareness that made them interesting.

I didn't find the story particularly engaging either.

I loved Mafia 1, one of my favourite games (still love that ending) but was disappointed in Mafia 2.

Hoping for a decent soundtrack too, if the trailer is any indication. But at the same time...gameplay vids distilled very little confidence, so I'll be waiting on the reviews.

I honestly don't see a peripheral that costs more than the console it plugs into, doing well.

High end racing wheels+pedals are more expensive than a console and most computers, and they require a chassis for mounting. And sim racing to that extent is a very niche market, and despite all cost considerations, it's a thriving genre.

These VR heads have waaaaaaay more mass appeal, future gaming potential, and VR will perfectly compliment the sim guys and their flight/driving/space/etc setups.

So WORST case, the smallest potential market are the "hardcore" sim guys. Best case? THE WORLD!

I think Zoopster is referencing console owners, specifically. PC owners are generally more accepting of high-priced peripherals than console owners.

I think it'll struggle on PS4 myself. I've spoken to a few PS4 owners, and no one is planning to buy one. Cost is the major factor, but the other is that it needs some killer gaming support to add the "must play" factor.

DA:I base game for 14.99, but the 'complete' version for 39.99... is the DLC worth it, or just ignore it and get the base version?

For the players that have actually played Inquisition, of course.

Thinking the same - are the 5 bits of DLC worth the extra?

I backed it and played it quite a bit, but I got kind of bored and didn't finish. At this point I'm going to wait for the 2nd expansion and see if they do a major tweak/rebalance patch before I touch it again.

You me, and everyone else.

Yup, same here.

I just never felt like I was progressing or growing as a character/player/party. Never felt any stronger as I levelled, and there wasn't a great deal of difference in the items.

Game world and the areas felt 'dead' too.

Enjoyed it, and got my moneys worth, but no real interest in going back to finish the game

News Comments > Pillars of Eternity Expansion Details; Patch Plans
12. Re: Pillars of Eternity Expansion Details; Patch Plans Jun 25, 2015, 14:35 MattyB
 

As a lover (many times over) of BG1&2, IWD and the like...

...I'm kind of disappointed with Pillars. I've played 40 hours so far, not quite finished and I'm struggling to get there. I've not been sucked in by the story at all, the recuitable characters lack any real....character. Overall, the world just seems a flat and lacking any charm.

That, and there's far too much combat (is there more than BG? Can't remember. Feels like it). The levelling never feels satisfying either, I don't feel like I'm actually getting stronger. And what's with the endurance/health system? Seems unnecessary.

I like it but...it hasn't grabbed me like the old days of BG where I could happily gave a 150hr game and not get bored. Maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy ("Things were better in my day" etc)

I know several people who work at Valve, THERE IS NO HALF LIFE 3 at this current moment.

You know people are capable of secrets and lies, right?

What he said.

No reason to run dungeons, crafting/gathering is dead, and raids are dull. No reason to leave your garrison as it's all there.

I did (and do, to a certain extent) enjoy the follower aspect.

11 here in the UK.

They've done a great job. Plays exactly like it should, massive nostalgia for those who fondly remembered the classic.

Downsides are it's quite repetative (I've done 30 missions, and I'm 10.5% complete) but it's far easier than I remember it. Too easy, in fact. I remember getting shot down quite frequently in the old game, but in this, I've barely seen a bullet hole in my plane.

No word on proper DK2 support yet? I was hoping they'd get it in for Beta 2...

Seconded. It's one of the best DK2 experiences, but desperately needs updating to the latest SDK.

I'm not fussed about trading with strangers, but would love to be able to trade items with clan mates.

My mate has a couple of pieces of my set that he doesn't want, and I can't get at them

Can two users share a library and both play at the same time?
No, a shared library may only be accessed by one user at a time.


That makes it totally worthless.



Yup. I can understand making the particular game unavailable, but the whole library?*

*(assuming I'm understanding this correctly)

I enjoyed this on the 360 immensely.

The actual gameplay was so-so, but the level designs were great and most of all, the voice acting and chemistry between Monkey and Trip was excellent.

Definately pick this one up.

Well sh*t me. Never thought I'd see it.

If they put proper builds in again, we might actually have a "proper" Diablo*

For me, she'll always be Bastila from KotOR - great game made even better by performances like hers.

Still, interesting point about celebrities in games - as much as I enjoyed the quality in games like Mass Effect, having a well known celebrity play a game character makes it difficult for me not to visualise that actor when I hear their voice, breaking the immersion somewhat.

Maybe that's just me.
