But will this update actually fix the worst combat in the history of ARPGs?
Playing a Tornado Shot Ranger in version 1.3 was crazy fun. Watching the entire screen explode with arrows in all directions was good times.

Playing an Ice Crash Marauder in 2.0 was some good stuff. Something very satisfying about that delicious ice crunch sound as enemies fall over dead.

Playing an Arc Witch in 2.1 was good times. It never gets old chaining lightning between six enemies!

Playing a Dual Flame Totem Scion lately has been tons of fun. Placing totems, drawing enemies to them, and watching them BURN...very good times!

I'll grant you the game is nowhere as smooth and polished as Diablo 3, but there's plenty of serious fun to be had!

This is my most played game on steam.

I keep going back every 4-6 months between these mini-expansions and they deliver. This is probably the first game I've ever seen which gives tons of new content for free and often.
Same here. I keep coming back and starting new builds, reaching about 85-90, and then taking a break until the next major patch. It's a good flow.

Really great game. And 2016 looks good since they've hired more programmers to hopefully fix the performance issues.

I remember when Anno 1404 came out and it, *shock*, had no DLC. You just got the whole game. And then they released a real expansion you could buy that added hundreds of hours of gameplay. And there was no extra DLC, just the expansion.

So forgive me if I don't get joyous at this "free" DLC.

If you want to know why Dragon's Dogma is the best game ever, watch this video:

Those of us who "get it" absolutely love Dragon's Dogma. I hope you "get it" too.

So happy to see Dragon's Dogma at the top. Dogma is such a brilliant game. Criminally under-rated over the years. I mean, seriously, the game is one of the best I've ever played. The creativity and diversity of combat, the open-world, the adorable pawns. Dogma is a masterpiece, even with its flaws.

Seriously, people, give it a try! I put it right up there with FFVI, Chrono Trigger, Red Dead Redemption, Metal Gear Solid V. It's one of the most rewarding gameplay experiences ever.

I always found 9 to be just okay. I played through it twice, I believe, and there are some very fun moments in it, but overall the story is kinda "eh", and the characters aren't as great.
Agree with you about FF9. I know a few people who say it's their favorite Final Fantasy, but it was just so generic. I played it at release back in the day, and it was decent but it was a huge step backwards from the relatively nuanced and mature storytelling of FF7 and FF8. Although FF9 did have some amazing music (not the Melodies of Life trash), so there's that.

FF:ARR for $4.30 is a damn steal even though it's not a Steam key.
Except you have to pay $12-15 a month to play it...so it isn't much a steal at all IMO. But I really hate monthly subscriptions since it makes no sense to charge a guy who plays 10 hours a month the same as a guy who plays 200 hours.

How's the single player? I'm fine with it being a semi-ok D&D clone that feels like Diablo. I just have no interest in partying with anyone else.
Well, the single-player is absolutely terrible compared to Dragon Age Origins. But if you want a very, very generic story that's poorly told through bad cutscenes and average dialogue, it's ok I guess. There's just so many better games, both D&D and otherwise.

I picked this up a year or two ago for PS3... After seeing it compared to Demons/Dark Souls a bunch... Extremely disappointing, but I should go back and give it more of a chance... Some day...
Please do give it a second chance. It takes a good 5-10 hours to really fall in love with it. I consider it one of the best games ever made, no lie. The scope and quality of the game is astounding. It has some of the best combat ever plus tons of secrets and quests and gear. And it has a phenomenal story if you actually see the whole thing through.

Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen is IMO one of the best video games ever made. EVER.

Yeah... $20 is a bit much for a port. You can play at higher resolution and it looks like the wall of fog is a bit further off, but all the assets look the same as they were almost 20 years ago. They play it off like that was intentional, so they're using the term "remastered" very loosely here.
In Night Dive Studios' defense, they don't use the word remaster on the Steam page. They simply call it Turok, which is accurate. It is the exact same game with minor tweaks to make it work on modern machines. But yeah, $20 for nearly the same PC release from 1997 is absurd. $5 would be more reasonable.

Those horrible mobile sprite graphics are an abomination. And Square has the gall to tell us "painstakingly recreated graphics" for characters...and yet the world graphics are hideous. Seriously, the game looks way better on ZSNES emulator. Square ruining another beloved classic...sigh...

Not really. For a lot of players, a pretty large part of the game is theory crafting a build or crafting items. PoE is far better at these things. The combat in PoE is good as well. It just doesn't have the same visceral effect you can get from having physics applied to the corpses. That's a trade-off for being able to use those corpses in interesting ways.
Agreed. My biggest problem with the game now is it simply has too many skills that aren't interesting. They keep adding so many skill options, but so few are actually powerful and unique. It's sort of like you can have any flavor of bland you want...

Once again, I think they should learn from Diablo 3. It would be so much better to have 40 interesting skill options than 100 poorly balanced ones.

So much of the really fun stuff in PoE only happens once you play a character for 60+ hours...that's bad game design IMO. But I'll grant you it caters to the hardcore Twitch guys...

Think ill wait for the next expansion to start playing again. The game play additions in that look to add a bit of life to the game.
Agreed. The next expansion will hopefully give us actual end-game content with that daily labryinth and "prestige" type classes modifications. PoE just can't keep up with Diablo 3's awesome additions and changes. This new league gives us...some trinkets...that just isn't good enough.

ItBurn wrote on Dec 11, 2015, 10:58:
The single biggest thing this game needs is a physics engine. Killing is simply not fun enough. Is that a planned feature?
Sadly, I doubt physics will ever happen. PoE's engine just isn't built for it and their programmers just aren't technical enough for it. It would be cool to have, but right now the exact location of all enemies and corpses is static because the game uses many skills like corpse explosion. Adding physics would totally destroy their current systems...sadly.

Personally I think this is the most lazy, dumbed down and boring of all the Anno games so far.. literally "finished it" in less than 30 hours of gameplay (which for a sim builder is NOTHING) and with finished I mean 1m people and corporate rank 103, 30 hours is the time I spent on ONE of the 3 star challenge maps in Anno 1404

Problems are as follows...

The good? It was fun for those first 30-40 hours, but then.. blarghhhhhh once I realized how to insta-win on "Hard" difficulty I literally lost all my drive to even play this game.
I'm saddened to hear this, but thank you for the informative post! I adored Anno 1404 (and made the Unofficial Patch for it, fixing 10,000+ things), but ever since 1404 things have gone downhill.

So sad to see so many features removed, Coop, true AI opponents, scenarios, and so on. Still...I will play it eventually just to put in 30 hours and be done as you did. Looks like Anno 1404 is still the best game ever of the genre, and its still very playable today so oh well.

I look forward to buying the Complete pack sometime next year for five dollars.

Agreed! If they want to cut tons of features and dumb it all down, then I'll gladly pay $5 for it!

Treyarch continues their terrible PC porting. A history lesson: BO1 had massive stutter and freezing with Intel Dual Core CPUs, which back then were incredibly common. BO2 had stutter and freezing issues with certain CPUs and discreet soundcards, which took them about two months to patch. Now BO3 has huge issues with i5 CPUs, which are the most popular and common CPUs on the market.

The scary part is Treyarch seems to try so hard...but they just don't understand how PC CPUs function. I told myself I might, MIGHT, buy the game if it released in a quality state. No sale for me!

Im all for sex equality and all that, but not every game needs to be about equality of sex and race. Sometimes you just want to go on a power trip and save a helpless princess. It sickens me nowadays when they need to put one person of each race in a movie. There's no creativity, you must follow this politically correct mold...
So true...what a quagmire of an issue. The simply truth is women are less physically strong than men, and traditionally they've received way less martial/military training. Hence, it's quite accurate to have way less women assassins/rangers/spartans. Having men save women (and children) is the history of the world. FACT. Fortunately most women are glad men go to war and do the saving. FACT. Heck, I'm glad other men do the saving so I don't have to! FACT.

I will leave now before the feminists can berate me...

30 FPS lock for gameplay, 24 FPS lock for cutscenes. NOPE. (And reviews are saying the game itself is outdated and messy, so those of us who demand 60 FPS aren't missing much.)
