So I've been playing the Surge for another 7h since last night (11 total) and i still stand by my first impression: It's good.

It certainly is no Dark Souls but that's not neccessarily a bad thing in this case, and I am a huge Souls fan, probably around 2k hours on Demons Souls to Dark Souls 3, including Bloodborne.

It is slightly friendlier to the player, having an option to pause combat and with the proficiencies that will keep levelling up, no matter if you die or not.

But to answer your question, there are a lot of things I don't like about LOTF not limited only to:
Slow reacting character, animations too long, exaggerated heaviness, mushy camera controls, weird animations in cutscenes, just to name a few that spring to mind right away.

And yesterday I installed it again (with 65min played previously) and tried to keep an open mind, not even expecting a game of the quality of the Souls series and just seeing is as a 3rd person action rpg.

Still couldn't do it. ANd my biggest problem about games like this is that with a handful of tweaks it could have been good (cutscenes and voice acting excluded ofc.), and it makes me quite sad thinking of the time, money, creativity and passion people invested in a game of this size.

This is all a very personal opinon ofc and as mentioned based on only about an hour of playtime, wjhich for core mechanics is enough tho.

Is the game all Melee? or are there ranged type weapons? Not really into stickily melee type games.

The DLC has been crap so far. There is suppose to be a pvp mode (which I look forward to), but they really need to add a King of the Hill/H1Z1/Player Unknown mod to keep this game from being stale.

And way better helicopter controls.

Didn't much care for the add on either, but I am looking forward to this one. it sounds pretty kewl having to try and survive.

Game reminds me of the movie Screamers, where the AI was creating more of its self and evolving. Basically, it was creating life.

So, how does MP ruin the game for you? If your friend doesn't show up and you cant get him on line with you, you move on and play without him. There are several save spots you know, so you can like have multiple games going at once if you want to. Please dont blame MP for your own short falls. Thats not the games fault,thats yours and your friends fault.

I didn't say it was the game's fault for having MP. All I said was the MP ruined it for me, there's a difference. As I already explained, it ruined my experience because after playing through part of it twice in MP, I was burned out and I not interest in doing it again.

What is the games fault is having the RPS mini-game in SP where it doesn't belong which ruins the whole point of role playing two characters by not letting me decide which one gets to win an argument.

Come on now MeanJim, how do you get burned out playing the game only twice in parts?

I've gone though the game several times with a few friends. I had a great time each play though. What you should have done was just moved on with that save game without your friend, if hes unreliable, then tell him you going on without him.

Its what I would have done!!

The MP looks cool, but I'm not interested in it at all. I think I'm going to avoid it completely until I finish a solo run.

The MP ruined the first D:OS for me. I started out playing it with a friend, but our schedules changed and we never got around to finishing it. During the Kickstarter, I couldn't find a home for an extra beta key, so I activated it on my niece's Steam account. That extra beta key was supposed to expire at release, but it didn't so she got upgraded to the full game when it released. We started playing it together, but it was frustrating to play with her. She kept getting distracted wanting to wander off, break into houses and pretty much ignore the quests. She eventually lost interest leaving me with another unfinished game.

I did try to play through it once, but I didn't like the rock, paper, scissors mini-game being in single-player when your two characters had an argument. It makes sense in multi-player though. Usually we'd try to talk it out and if we came to an agreement we'd let one or the other win, otherwise we played the mini-game to decide the outcome. It ruined the role-playing in single-player because I don't get to decided which of my two characters wins the argument and instead the game takes over one character and makes me play RPS against it. I brought this up on their forums during the beta/early access period and a lot of people agreed with me, but the official response was to save scum it until I got the outcome I wanted.

Between the RPS mini-game in SP and the two failed attempts at playing it multi-player, I lost interest in playing it by myself. I still backed D:OS2 though. I thought eventually I would get around to playing and finishing D:OS on my own by D:OS2's release, but I don't know if that will happen because it keeps falling farther down my backlog list.

So, how does MP ruin the game for you? If your friend doesn't show up and you cant get him on line with you, you move on and play without him. There are several save spots you know, so you can like have multiple games going at once if you want to. Please dont blame MP for your own short falls.

Steam inner workings and future plans... Half Life 3 confirmed.

At this point, Valve should just commission someone to do HL3 as a graphic novel and be done with it.

Funny, watch and see if Telltale Games doesn't somehow get the rights to do a Half Life game.

I'd prefer a couple of optimization passes before knowing why it populates a page I never look at.

Tell me about it. I want Steam to remember when I say Im not interested in that game that it never populates the game again. this happens all the time and getting tired of seeing those unwanted games on my page.

Working title: Alien Frustration

Loved that game until the Alien got paranormal instincts and detected me wherever I hid. Then I quit and uninstalled. Don't tell me I am weak because I already know I can get frustrated with games after a long day at work if it gets too difficult. To each their own.

Yep, I'm not a fan of this run and hide type gaming. Give me a good old Pulse Rifle any day. Its not in my blood to play hide and seek. I need to blast the shit out of things.

If anything, they should have been working on a movie version of the new Alien movie. I think that could have been really good.

Really? DLC for a 6 year old game? It was terrible anyway.

Not really, the game was a lot of fun Coop. maybe you just needed to try it Coop and see how much more fun it really is.

Anyone know what the cost of this DLC will be?

Crap like this just kills me, if video games are supposedly linked to violence, and over a billion people play video game if not more, then we are all fucked.

And yet, the rise of video games has correlated with the lowest loss of life from war in the history of mankind. I'm not going to claim causation, as it's a complex, multifaceted issue, but there's no evidence that playing violent video games leads to actual violence in even the tiniest fraction of individuals.

I hope you know that I was being sarcastic?

Not for one second do I believe that nonsense, this is just idiots wanting to lay blame on why people do the stupid shit they do. and Games are an easy target.

I wouldn't have to look hard to find something better than a key bought with stolen credit card number that gets revoked.

CD Keys.com does, and they dont change you extra bullshit changes for something. G2A even when you dont take their insurance tosses on an extra 50 cents to 2 dollars depending on the cost of what you are buying when you check out. Cd Keys does not do that.
