News Comments > Two Worlds II: Shattered Embrace Next Month

I am wondering if the game actually has enough active players to sustain this... according to steam less than 50 players played it recently, and they haven't fixed any bugs or glitches, just releasing new disjointed content.

The support of this series if bizarre. I liked Tw2 after about a years or so patches, then one DLC, then a huge gap then a couple more DLC's come out of nowhere, I didn't play those due to reviewing badly and now this. It is like someone has the code and this is all what they know to do, so they make some new content. Tw3 would make more sense, but I suppose whoever is doing this today knows they can't handle a full release. Just odd.

The entire game from top to bottom would need to be redone and they need leadership that understands what makes a game fun. Anthem was a series of terrible design decisions and seemed almost intentionally done to piss people off.

Not to sound too much of an optimist, but it seems from what has been rumored they know the loop has to change and they do have new(er) leadership and a few have left the building. Not like I'm holding my breath, but they do have a good combat model with skills and flight, but yeah it would be some story if somehow this one is turned around.

4.0 is PoE2.
Okay, that makes a little more sense, although I'm not sure how I missed that previously. Have they said that from the beginning and I managed to overlook it somehow? Or did they come to a realization after announcing 4.0 that they wanted to call it PoE2?

This, we just learned 4 was 2. My #1 thing and I don't see it in previews is a lot more skills where you can move and fire them off at the same time. The stop to use the skill is a major limpy for me, so I gravitated the the few/builds that don't have to.

Watching on Twitch and yeah it's a rental for me, for those liking it and not just saying people here who like it, but I don't get how one can like this and then shit on recent past EA games, it looks very similar. I see a scaled down DAI in this, Anthem has better combat. MEA I haven't played but something tells me it's down this same vein. I'm not saying not to like this, but then imo there are redeeming qualities in their other games. I bet EA is confused on what people really want sometimes if this ends up being critically acclaimed.

Do you feel this game has a lot of replayablity? If not, why not just rent for $15?

COD is more of a PVP game now though, isn't it? Is this Star Wars game going be a big PVP game?

The latest COD game is apparently a shitshow in PvP. Echoing loud footsteps and overpowered individual guns have basically turned the map into a Camping Carl festival.

Probably so, but tit is more PvP centric, no? The single player is a nice addon they put in now?

Darks I know you were playing Rune II and liking it, still good or should I avoid for now?

How can a 12 hour game be $60 in the lords year 2019?

Quality, not quantity. I'm totally happy paying $60 for a 12 hour game if its fun and a cool experience.

I want to agree with you, but honestly I feel the goal posts have moved over the years with such saturation. 12 hour game to me means the next day I'm done with it, I would look back and say pretty much no matter what unless it is simply a landmark game (this isn't, is it?) and say A. I should have got a month of Access instead for $15 and then have 28 more days to possibly pay something else. 2. Wait for a deep sale and enjoy it then, it will be better patched and $20 for two days is more palatable.

If we go back 10-15 years I think what you say is more viable.

Well, if you consider the latest COD was only around 5 or 6 hours. Then I guess this is a good deal. The new Terminator game that came out two days ago is also right at 10 hours. Seems to be the norm anymore.

COD is more of a PVP game now though, isn't it? Is this Star Wars game going be a big PVP game?

I'm tired of the iso mechanics of RtwP and tiring of the iso rpg mechanics in general, but DOS does it so well that I still enjoy that one. The mechanics are getting to me.

There'd be no consoles either if you had focused on PC gaming too. Another place you dropped the ball.
There were consoles before there was a Microsoft, Cutter.

Many many consoles. Nintendo dropped the ball which gave birth to Sony.

Atari dropped the ball.

Is that intel surface piece paid advertising?

I get the point and agree that a long game isnít as needed as once was, aka a lot less releases then. But too much I in that commentary.

That said a lot of games are a lot shorter if you just play the main and skip all the rest.

FWIW Dragon age had a two year, then a three year cycle, in this case it will be 7+ years. Does anyone here really believe it is going to be amazing balls because they could have put 7 years into it? 3 years imo is plenty of time (4 max) to turn a DA game if things are going right for the developers, obviously they haven't been. So because we'll get 7 years between, we'll get words they've only really worked on it for a much smaller amount of time, 'cause... wait for it... Bioware Magic.

27. Re: New Steam Library Launches Oct 31, 2019, 11:51 HorrorScope
 
I've been using beta, once I understood where somethings were and understood the new, I like a bit better than before. This was not a high priority thing for me personally, but I get companies want to keep their products fresh. Some of the tagging is nice. I like the individual game page better. It was more knowing where some of the stuff is to get you back in the equivalent setup you had, for example I like the Recent View for Library, it changed to default after the update, the little clock puts it back to what I'm used to.
