Epic still trying make Fortshit relevant. They just cant stop sucking the dick off of Marvel and Star Wars to try and keep their sacred game alive. God forbid that well dries up.

Game will probably be mediocre. Any Dev would get performance anxiety with this ridiculous amount of hype hovering over them.
I fear for them. And for the disappointment.

I don't want the above to be real, I just think it is. I hope I am wrong. Either way, I'm happy the hype never really got to me. Deus Ex 3 sounds cool though.

I think that is a subjective point of view. Just becasue you might not be impressed with it, does not mean others wont be. To each their own as they say.

For me, I'm sure I will like it just because of the setting.

Honestly, the game doesn't look at that bad. I'm not a big fan of games having a lot of puzzles. And that's what the IFN review was saying, had way to much puzzle and not enough other fun stuff. But over all he liked it.

To me, this seems more fun the Valhalla was. I just couldn't stand that game and got it refunded luckily.

Soo... anybody on Bluesnews play Wolcen at all? I've heard pretty terrible things about the release and even current state of the game; shittier Diablo clone, basically, mostly abandoned by the developers?

Gave up playing it after the devs decided to nerf a lot of things and clamped done on people who had lots of gold. They went through all of the accounts and removed gold we had. It was the most fucked up thing ever. This is a Coop game and they felt the need to fuck with the player base and try and control us. So I said fuck it I won't support them anymore . if they are going to nazi control assholes.

If they were so concerned about the game having the most opportunity as possible, they would have released it on steam at the same time they did EGS. Expanded markets only increases the value and sales of your game you moronic idiot Devs!!!

Still waiting on the Steam release!!!

So it's a good first step but they still have a long way to go. Wayyyyyy too much downtime, and the below average combat mechanics and repetitive MMO style missions don't even begin to offset this.
Definitely a long way to go. They need to fix magic weapons and tune them into a reasonable damage level.....hell, I think its reasonable to just delete them all from the game outright. They've been abused for far too long and ruined the game for normal players.

Then fix the Bloodied builds and make them reasonable. The game itself is totally broken until they rebalance those major issues. Those are simple balance passes....then they can move on to content. But...they won't because too many of the whiny playerbase abuse those mechanics and would pitch fits.

You mean like how your whining right now?

I could be wrong but wasn't Rune II originally going to be an open world type game? I thought they just ran out of funding then moved more to pvp style play.

It is an open world game, and does have pvp. But its mostly focused on Coop or SP Campaign.

BTW, this is their Roadmap if anyone is interested in what they are working on and fixing.

"The claim that Rune 2 was a 'threat to Skyrim franchise'"

Whoever said/wrote that should look into being a comedic writer.

Have you played Rune 2?

Had the game been done right from the start it could very well have been a competitor. and I actually prefer the combat in Rune 2 over Skyrims. The Combat in Rune is Brutal as hell and a lot of fun.

The game has come a long way since HH abandoned it Ragnarok Studios has done a lot of work on the game.

Its only going to get better with some more patching. The devs are very committed to making this a very good and fun game.

Don't go knocking it unless you have played it.

I've played it complete, not with the latest though. It is it's own game, never thought for a second that this game really competes with Skyrim and not even from one being better than the other or not, they are different enough. But I guess one can say any game competes with any game since gaming dollars are finite.

But the word THREAT to Skyrim. Ha a threat, get real. Yes that is what they were scared of Rune 2 coming in and taking the glory away from a 2012 game.

All I know is that Bethesda's was definitely up to no good with how they acquired all of the HH team. and how a new studio was launched the day after HH shut down.

So, to me there's a lot of smoke here and you know the saying, where's there smoke there's fire. and I do believe HH went out of their way to purposely not complete and finish Rune 2. I played it launch day, it was a very shallow game. Was so disappointed in the game.

Stopped playing it for 8 months, came back to the new Decapacitation edition and was so pleasantly surprised at how much had changed and how much better the game was. They even increased all of the land mass by 200 percent.

Personally, I'm really loving the game now, its still got rough edges, but it will get fixed with some time.

Great, another fucking Robot adaptoid boss. Just what the game needed! So lame!

Kate on the other hand does look badass. Her abilities are looking like some of the best in the game.

The story looks good too for her.

I am hearing people having issues with the combat, is it better/worse then the combat used in Origins/Odyssey?

I really liked the other two games, but this one just gave me a bad taste that I didn't care for. the story, the game play. just felt bad. I refunded it and so did two other of my friends who didn't like the game either. This is a very deep sale for me to buy it ever again.

I suspect from what I have been hearing that many others are also doing refunds.

All I heard the first time was that it was an exclusive train wreck... The trailer's not really doing it for me either, and it's already 'mixed' on Steam. I hope they can turn it around, but it looks pretty damn rough right now.
Down to mostly negative on steam, 35% positive, ouch.
Maybe the decap version can change it around who knows.

Reading reviews, looks like the original Rune fans don't like the direction the game went, and that's unlikely to be changed.

I've gone and read through many of those so called negative reviews, and found the complaints to be not warranted in most of them.

The ones that got me were the ones were they are bitching about the graphics not looking like the screenshots. I'm scratching my head on this one. I have everything turned up to cinematic mode and the graphics look identical. I think this is more their systems and not knowing how to setup their pcs and the settings.

The combat has been reworked and feels much more like the ordinal Runes combat system. so again, I don't get there these complaints are coming from. I played the original Rune 2 when it released, and I can tell you now without a doubt that the game has come a very long way and has a really nice opening intro and has 20 time more content then it did. The devs have worked very hard on this new edition and it shows.

So I wouldn't take those reviews very serious. Many of them are nitpicking and complaining over things that I don't see in the game right now. Yes the game does still need some work and does have some rough edges, but those will be fixed over timer with some patching. RTX is not fully implemented into the game yet, this is till in beta and is only in one dungeon currently. and you have to run the game with this switch to get it to work. -dx12

This is also from the devs on what they are working on now.

- Combat Tuning and Improvement
- Performance/FPS
- Address Current Bugs, COOP/Multiplayer key focus
- PVP tuning and improvement's
- New Dungeon and New Enemy
- DM Arenas/Maps
- More Gear
- Community Feedback and Bugs
- maybe we'll try to pull off a PVP Dungeon?
-Localization
- Controller Support
- Steam Achievements
-Voice Overs

But for me, I have been having a lot of fun playing the game.
