somewhat off-topic, but I have recently gotten into the first Dark Souls game after a great deal of trouble with it for YEARS. I get it. It's probably a top 10 game all-time. Utterly brilliant.

I was absolutely dreading the first time I would get invaded by another player because forced PVP ain't really my bag, but HOLY SHIT did I crush that MF'er. He was NOT expecting a 2-handed Zwei +5 to rain blows upon him again and again. I cackled so loud I woke up my son from across the house.

I'm of the same mind as you... Invaders are a nuisance.. But holy crap, this last play through (of DS 3), I was invaded twice in one zone... The first, I plunged onto and chop chop with my bigass Yhorm's Machete, and he's gone... The other one, I had to work on.. Was a long fight, with them quaffing a lot of Estus, but finally they died... Then I realized I still had all mine, so I chain quaffed a bunch standing over their corpse as they were whisked away... Sooooo satisfying : )

Edit: Meant to say, I'm surprised they put in anti-cheat functionality that penalized big Souls increases, since previous DS games have also had hackers giving away crazy amounts of Souls to random people... At that point, it was just an annoyance, because you could just spend the souls you already had, and die away the rest... In the end, it's just bad foresight/planning... But they have to get some things wrong... The game is so great otherwise : )

Man, I still hate that they changed the name... Every time I see one of these, I'm like, sweet, another M&M... : (

In this case specifically, it was 'Sweet, another M&M... Wait, was VII the Breath of Heaven or something... Heroes... Shit...'

I like this game. I find it fun
I tend to judge based more on if I find myself laughing after playing a game for several minutes or not.

You're going to have to stop actually playing the games and start posting stronger 'opinions' if you want to stick around Blues ; )

News Comments > Dark Souls III Crash Workaround
11. Re: Dark Souls III Crash Workaround Apr 13, 2016, 19:07 Alamar
 
Man, I am loving this game...

I also started as thief, so Bandit's Knife... Which was a pain on the first boss with my puny non-upgraded hits.. Took a few tries, then one shot the next two, had trouble with a few others... Basically, it's a Souls game ; )

Also running amazing out of the gate... My recently purchases system (with 980 Ti) runs it at 60, with everything set to max, then a few things set lower (like shadows... Still on, because that looks good, but Low vs High doesn't change anything, especially with movement)... Oh, my bad... Meant that at 4k resolution... I'm sure it runs all max at 1080p for 980 or Ti.

And yes, it does 'feel' more like DS1, but that's mostly because of all the returning stuff... It's a good meshing of DS1/2 and BB... : )

Come on Blizzard, you finally had something good with D3 and you're ditching it(stopping developing real new content)? You better be working on D4 or something.

What is it you consider 'new content' if it's not the new zones, creatures, items, that come with the seasons?

People would be better off pre-ordering No Man's Sky. At least they'll get a real game this June.

I'm interested in No Man's Sky, but I'm waiting to see if it has any game before jumping on board...

Love Souls games, but the 'stories' are so meh...

I agree that BB should be on PC, what makes it better? Combat/dodge speed, setting, too much healing, lack of spells, weapons, replayability? : )

News Comments > Godus Becomes Godus Wars
9. Re: Godus Becomes Godus Wars Feb 3, 2016, 12:48 Alamar
 
I'm pretty conflicted... I enjoyed Godus... Thought it was a neat engine and style and what not... The fact that all Godus owners (on Steam) had Godus Wars added to their list is what makes me conflicted... Without that, there's no conflict... They'd just be pure shit ; )

I have no expectations for this title though, so if it ever makes it far enough that I want to try it, I like that it's more like populace, and playing Godus, I wanted to spend less time terraforming, and more time fighting...

But will this update actually fix the worst combat in the history of ARPGs? For a game with as many great features and game mechanics as PoE has I've never been able to get far due to how bad the combat is.

Diablo 3 for as awful as their overall mechanics are has great feel to the combat and moving through the world.

Torchlight 2 was honestly my favorite of recent ARPGs, but friends and I had notorious problems zoning through portals in mp so we eventually gave up on that.

I have been playing Grim Dawn since it hit "content complete" and I have to say overall ideas wise this is by far the best. It has a lot of the same things going for it that Titan Quest had (obviously) but they've taken certain world interactions to a new level. There are a lot of random NPC encounters which you have control over the futures of. Several instances of things along the lines of "clear those fields so we can farm" and said fields stay clear and the farming starts. Combat wise it's just a deeper Titan Quest system and doesn't seem to have overpowered random affixes.

Back on topic to PoE though... it really does make me sad that the combat is so complete shit that for me it makes the game unplayable. I'd rather go play Diablo 2 because it still feels better, and for some reason this is something they never seem to improve. Perhaps that's because a lot of fans just accept it, but each of these expansions seem to have just put in more content without even a nod to how trash the combat is.

Let me guess, you've never played past Normal difficulty, right?

I'm trying to figure out what your point is... Other than disregarding a widely held opinion...

Yes, the increased attack speed helps make the shitty feel less shitty, but it doesn't get rid of the problem...

I for one won't be subscribing to this, and I hope it doesn't pave the way for publishers pulling their titles from other storefronts (eg Steam) and cordoning-off their games into their own subscription services. Imagine that Blizzard, EA, Microsoft, UbiSoft, Sony, only providing access to their games exclusively through their own storefronts or via subscription services.

Maybe you're including brick stores, but where else can you get Blizzard games?

I'm all for everything being on steam, but this seems like a great deal if you don't need to take months to call a game done. Also, being EA, and their shutting down of servers too quickly, maybe this will help. I've played nearly everything in the current list, and don't care for BF, so I'll wait on it. Would like to see other pubs start this though.
