Never quite liked GD, because of the truly god-awful drop rates. Legendaries are supposed to start dropping at 50. I finally quit at 67, when the game had dropped exactly 1 legendary (by the final boss, which is ALWAYS a legendary) and it was one I couldn't use at all. Why devs continue to insist on absolutely fucking retardedly low drop rates, I'll never understand.

Grim Dawn makes Borderlands 2 look downright generous in comparison.

I did play it again with a mod that

A) Massively upped the drop rates
B) Gave you like 3 or 5 skill points per level

but to make up for it, it also continuously increased the monster spawns as you leveled up. By the time I reached level ~ 60 with that, the entire screen would be filled with critters. It was actually a lot of fun, until the engine finally croaked on the thousands of spawns it was asked to create.

In any case, I got ashes of malmouth and thought it was pretty mediocre, so I'm definitely giving this a pass.

I had pretty much the same problem, for a SP game this game is utterly shit when it comes to itemization and loot. I actually KS'd the game originally and dropped it cold and hard after reaching level 50 and never finding a single usable legendary till then, not ONE.

NOT ONE

That would be just your dumb luck then, I've got a few chars over level 65 and I have them fully outfitted with legendary items.

Dont believe me, then join me in a steam game, Ill prove it and even drop you a few items to keep if you like.



We can always meet up in D3 Torment 12

I play D3 every so often, im around paragon 1200 something. My brother who is a fanatic for this game and in the best guild you can be in is over 3000 paragon.

You can add me in Battlenet if you like, I play a demon hunter as my main and a few other support toons too.

No, I dont lack critical thought. I just know shit when i see it.


I just ignore anything that jackoff has to say, in fact hes on my ignore list. so I have no idea what he even responded and I really dont care what he has to say.

In a roundabout way he (correctly) pointed out how you lack critical thought.

There was a DLC called Comrades that allowed you to generate a character, and take on quests with up to 3 other people. The main game is not an MMO, it's a classic Final Fantasy game. XI and XIV are the MMOs.

If you're into MMOs, I can fully recommend FFXIV - it's excellent.

Regarding the current game (FFXV) I'll probably pick it up when it comes out, Looks good.

Yea, no thanks, subscription based game. not to thrilled about playing to play.

You'll get an occasional guest character but otherwise those four only. They were going for a "bro road trip" vibe on this one so the playable cast is smaller than past games.

OK, good to know. also, can this campaign be played Cooperatively with fiends taking over the other characters?

And btw, the combat reminds me a lot of Kingdoms of Amalur.

Be sure to grab the nvidia drivers... seemed to make a huge difference for me (unlike the Benchmark, without drivers on my 1070 I would get 12 fps less than I do now, strange. Still not getting to 60 at 1440p on MAX though

That's like saying "I have a Ferrari Cup Holder, yet my Big Wheel only does 10mph".
Without the rest of the specs of your system........

Also, my 1080 Ti runs like a champ with everything at full getting 60 fps easily.

Avoid this one like the Plague.. it's horrible.

It didn't exactly look amazing, but any details on that?

First off, they are forcing you to be online always even for the SP campaign.

Secondly, the controls are shit, you cant rebind all of the keys in the game. Thats a big time bullshit screw you to many of us that are left handed.

Thirdly, you cant turn off the stupid ass music, they blurt it as loud as possible when combat starts. #FuckKonami

Forth, The menu system is shit, you have a mouse, but cant use the mouse in the menus. Again #fuckkonami

Fifth, Its about as boring and dull as it can get with this hand held shit with always needing water and food. My god, cant anyone make a survival game with out all this micromanaging bullshit attached to it?

So, yea that about sums up this lame ass game.

Definitely avoid it. its total shit!

'bout time the military upgrades its hardware. 486's won't last forever...;)

The Military inst the only ones experiencing this issue. Its across the board for every company out there. This is Microsoft screwing over a lot of companies by not making drivers available for some of the older PCs, and these PCs are not that old that are experiencing these issues.

Dell Optiplex 790's and 7010 series of Pcs all suffer from this. An those PCs are not that old, about 4 years old.

Game is an absolute Piece of shit! Lacks options, cant rebind half of the keyboard keys and you cant even turn off the fucking god damn music. Its infuriating that developers continually make the same assassin mistakes with games, its like they all go the asshole school of being dumb fucks.

Seems that it does...

https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/67596/nwn-ee-and-the-cep

Everything works. I own this and got it just to test out if my mods work and they do. So non issue. cant say that its looking better, but they have made nicer changes and compatibility changes that are good. And a nice UI scalling added.

Theres a new Warhammer RTS game coming out, it goes back to the basic RTS game play style of base building and massive armies. That is what I want in an RTS game. none of this bullshit they keep coming up with and limited units pop cap crap.

We'll see if it sells enough to merit. RTS games have been a dying breed for a long time now for one major reason - they just don't sell like they used to. And this comes to you from someone who worked at Westwood Studios for a while.

Not trying to burst your bubble or anything, but in all seriousness, Petroglyph hasn't really made any quality RTS games in a long while, in fact not to many have. Act of Aggression and Act of War were really good RTS games.

And SupCom is the King of all RTS games. but no one makes RTS games like that, and thats what many of us RTS guy want in an RTS game bigger and longer matched games. not this tournament shit they make these days.

Try Forged Battalion!

Yea right! That game is another wanna be Starcraft tournament game. the map layouts and design are every bit like Starcraft. Another fucking waste of an RTS game.
