I've seen a lot of videos now and it looks slow, floaty and unreactive. It looks like nerf weapons and the enemies seems to mostly die with unsatisfying canned animations. Explosions are more like water balloons bursting than a violent concussion blast like they should be. Every single video is played with the gamepad, so that probably doesn't help.

Anyone expecting some sort of major overhaul to the game is just kidding themselves.

Aside from bug patches nothing major will get touched. This is going to be everyone's favorite game to hate on while they run off to play more of it.

Well, there's a precedent - they broke down and did the expanded ending patch for ME3.

That extended ending patch was a joke and didn't really change anything.

As for Zelda, In 2017, I'm not going to pay over 400$ to play a game below 30 fps and below 1080.

So, it's inquisition in space and the problems with animations are true. I loved the first two Dragon Age, but was bored to death with inquisition. It's really sad, but I'm going to have to wait for a big sale before I get this.

Maybe I'll get Dishonored 2 instead, or maybe Prey, but it looks... bad, to me.

There's absolutely no valid excuse for bad facial animations or the lack of shading options. They chose a technology that sucks, got shitty results and have to own it. Maybe if they used a revolutionary new technology that had some drawbacks because of how new it was, but no, it's just worse than almost any game nowadays.

Looks slow and bland. I feel like they spent their efforts on the wrong things. Can't really see myself playing it seriously. Will try it though.

I mean some of the facial animations are odd (they can't be perfect, given the amount of dialogue), but these faces look amazing to me. I'm on all High settings, and it looks fantastic. Dunno what you guys are talking about...

Are you saying that the videos are lies?

Honestly haven't put much time into the SP, but I did the intro/pathfinder bit, and all the conversations and close-ups looked fine to me anyway. This video does point out some obvious flaws. I'm just saying that all of the animation can't be perfect. I believe it has as much dialogue as the last 3 games combined? (IIRC)

I'm getting it, anyway... the faces aren't gonna break the game for me.

Haven't played yet, but this is what I figured. Honestly if you pause any movie at any point, half the characters on screen will be caught in some stupid expression. Not that there aren't issues, I suspect people might be making more of it than what it is.

The videos I have seen are long conversations, not pauses at random times. In some of them, they talk about dramatic subjects and their faces are absolutely dead neutral. Also, in some conversations the voice acting is terrible and in others the writing makes no sense, maybe because the facial animations are so messed up.

The writing and characters are basically the only reason I played Mass Effect. The gameplay was mind numbing. From what I've read and seen, the writing is bad and the voice acting/facial animations are bad. Reviews better be really good or I might end up skipping the game.
Edit: This mass effect isn't made by the same people/stupid(edit2: lol, I meant studio, but yeah, appropriate freudian slip).

I think the actual translation here is that really, really old cpus (probably ten years old or older) won't be updated by Microsoft any further in Win10 and from now on. The older cpus lack the necessary hardware for security enforcement (NX bit, etc.) People are always misunderstanding technology in some way, it seems. It won't be too long before even 32-bit CPUs are no longer supported. Progress marches on, etc.

This is absolutely not what Blue posted.

I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate Microsoft. It must be 10 years now since they did anything that affected me positively. I really wish we could switch OS, but those thinking Linux is an option are crazy. For a real switch to happen, you'd need the general public to do it and Linux is waaaaay too complicated and different. Stop. I know you're going to tell me it's easy and all that, but you don't live in the real world, or at least the general public world. People are used to Windows and all the Windows programs and one thing you should learn about life is that people aren't willing to change.

Could be interesting if it wasn't streaming. Streaming real time games simply doesn't work well enough.

I don't see how there can be any proper reviews of Wildlands out yet. Its going to take anyone a few good weeks of solid game play to get though all of the content and story.

There is no way I can take anyones review of this game as solid.

While I agree that it's too early for solid reviews, and I'd argue that solid reviews don't exist anymore... I don't think you need to complete everything in this game to be able to review it.

I think you do, if the review in his reviewer starts talking about the games content and the story or says theirs not much in the way of a story. and he hasn't reviewed the game to the end content. then that is a bad reviewing of the game.

It would make sense, but in my mind, if you've played 80% of the game and you didn't enjoy the story, even if the last part is great, it's a story failure. But this is a case by case thing. Witcher 1 and 2 for example, the story isn't all that great through the game, but you finish the story in order to see the results of your choices and that's when it becomes great. I doubt Wildlands falls into this category.

Too early? It's been in production for five years?

At a studio I worked at, it took 8 years to release one game and it was restarted from scratch several times. For all we know, the current iteration of the game is a year old. I'm just saying, from the videos and information I saw, interpolating with my development and gaming experience, I'm surprised it's releasing so soon in this state. Not saying it'll suck or anything. Could indeed be the lack of media fanfare.

Maybe they can do one final DLC to tie up the cliffhanger I hear the game ended with. I never got to finish it, since my gaming PC decided it didn't want to run games anymore a few days after I got the game, but with the supposed hiatus of the series I'm just not looking feeling motivated to go back for rest of the story.

I just finished the game last night and it does end leaving you with more questions than answers, but the original ends that way too. I kind of liked how it ended with the Picus News stories summing up the outcomes of your missions, but it seems like they didn't bother to cover a lot of them. I thought it was cleaver how you find out some of them during the game, but a few others, like solving "The Last Harvest" murders doesn't get a news story.

I thought the game was pretty damn short compared to the last one. Although Steam says I clocked in 126 hours, I spent the first 40 of those in the city hacking and breaking into everything I could find, which king of spoils things because you end up going to a lot of those places later on for side missions. I was also going for a no-kill run, so I save scummed like crazy.

I have more play time in the second game too because I went ghost and explored absolutely everything. The world is much denser. The story is way shorter than in the first game though, so if you don't procrastinate that much, the game is definitely too short.

They royally screwed up with this game. Would have played the hell out of it if it was part of the main game or if it was an expansion, but I have zero interest in these story things.
