News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda Launches
11. Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda Launches Mar 21, 2017, 11:39 Bopper
 
Played about 15 hours so far, 10 on trial, 5 via VPN to unlock early.

The game isn't as good as the original series but still competent. It is very much like DA:I but so far the quests are a bit more compelling as are the environments, then again I was a little let down with DA:I so that is not saying much.

The animations are not as bad as people say, there are only a couple of characters (so far) that are distracting.

The game is pretty buggy but all issues encountered so far are minor/cosmetic but they are quite plentiful. Some examples:

- Ambient dialogue in places where there are no people.
- Random NPC in a drunken state standing in a random place at an outpost (totally out of context)
- Two NPC's stuck in a half second animation of shaking hands in a loop, one of which I can stand inside of.
- NPC dialogue referring to a character I have not met yet.
- Dodgy companion AI at times.
- One quest allowed me to complete a step twice.

One major bug:

- Door did not open in main path quest, forced me to reload.

Annoyances:

- UI is clunky/convoluted. Made for consoles (yep playing on PC9. This is something that should be patched as it is quite easy to do.
- Can't equip items right away (not even consumables that you pick up and possibly need) which is quite dumb.
- Limited companion customisation, no equipment for them.

Good stuff:

- Some decent characters/writing (although sometimes the writing is a bit cringe/wtf).
- Nice production design of environments, props, etc. (when they are not buggy).
- Some interesting side quests and progression systems.
- Driving the buggy is quite fun (I actually liked the Mako from ME1 :P)
- Fun combat, it is quite streamlined and missing the RPG-ness of the first ME but cranking up the difficulty helps.
- Exploration can be fun, only seen the first real planet though.
- The scanner is a mixed bag. Sometimes scanning is fun/feels relevant, sometimes it feels like busywork.
- Runs well but I have a high-end pc.

In summary: rough, not as good as ME trilogy, some bright moments to be had, if you are at all unsure wait for patches and a sale. The first 5 hours was quite discouraging but the game gets better.

I was disappointed at first that the focus wasn't on the Italians but they are still featured prominently. I actually love the setting and the exposure to all the different cultures as well as the southern vibe.

The game runs well for me despite the 30 FPS lock. I have had one crash and a few spots when the game locked up for 10 seconds or so but other than that it is fine.

News Comments > Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Season Pass Details
25. Re: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Season Pass Details Aug 23, 2016, 07:00 Bopper
 
I remember when you could get free stuff in games through mods and cheat codes instead of paid DLC

I don't even want any of the crap that came with the pre-order, it just wrecks the balance of the game. I will see if I can somehow get rid of my extra cash so I can start fresh.

I hope the DLC will be good.

Battleborn is a competent game, just not worth the asking price in this environment of F2P moba's. It will go F2P within 6 months at which point it will be well worth a look.

The game might be great but the market is just too saturated. My prediction is Battleborn will go F2P within 6 months and within 2 years both of these games + Lawbreakers will have been shut off.

I hope I am wrong and will not judge until I play this when it is actually free.

I wish I could pay the US price for this, I think 650 with taxes added. That's like 520 euros? Here in Finland I would not be surprised to see this card start at 900 euros i.e 1100 dollars.

I actually confused this with Mordheim: City of the Damned.

This looks pretty damn cool!

The first game was a pretty decent point and clicker, quite overlooked and underrated.

Not sure why the amount of gore is an issue. Shouldn't the idea of shooting and killing stuff already be where you draw the line for mature content?

News Comments > Pillars of Eternity Patched

The game is awesome but there is still a pretty bad bug concerning bloated save files causing load times to increase from 4 seconds to 40+ seconds which can ruin the game.

To avoid it, do not use the chanter ability that causes your party members to lay frost traps. If you are suffering from long load times, you need to run a custom script that cleans your save files of the redundant trap positions.

You can find the fix on reddit.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March
9. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March Jan 21, 2015, 13:23 Bopper
 
People are acting like this means the game is a failure and that this is some big "told you so" moment. This is pretty standard practice now not just for MMO but for other online games. Zenimax Online already prepared for this right from launch.

Once you no longer generate anymore revenue from "premium" customers, you re-release the game as F2P to increase your user-base. If done well, it can be a positive thing both for old users who want to return and those playing now that would like a more active community.

SWTOR has generated a healthy revenue and maintained a good user-base since going F2P. I just hope they find a way to reward those that purchased the game at premium.

Counter-Strike Online is one of the highest grossing F2P pc games in the world. Also check out "Crossfire". They are both modded versions of the original CS and are both operated by Nexon and huge in South Korea.

The premise sounds great and the art-style is funky but Of Orcs and Men was not a good game.

They will make money with this. I can see it now. Unlock the Milennium Falcon now for 50 bucks! The combat will also be arcady as fuck.

Having high-priced IAP's is a considerable stream of revenue for F2P titles as many "whales" will end up purchasing these. As long as they don't give an unfair advantage I am fine with it.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online in April
25. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online in April Dec 11, 2013, 13:48 Bopper
 
I love MMO's and the Elder Scrolls but I am nervous to see how successfully they can adapt an experience that is quintessentially single-player into an MMO. Rather than take an Elder Scrolls game and move it online in a way that feels natural, I am afraid they have just made an MMO in the ES universe.

I hope I am wrong. I will play this with an open mind.
