Spoiler-free? That part of the game has been widely advertised. I'd be surprised if you didn't know about it when you bought it.

I've seen zero of the game. Why would I spoil myself a game I want to enjoy?

Steam reviews are much lower than I expected. A ton of people are having crashes and bad performance. 1 review in 3 is negative and none of them are about the gameplay or story, just about the crashes and perf.

In my opinion, most people who cheat do it for two reasons. The first is that they don't have enough control/success in their life and they lack the self confidence/education to fix it themselves. The second is people who are addicted to winning or that can't face the feelings of defeat. These are usually really competitive or professional players.

As for the banning, I think it's too early to tell if all people banned were cheaters. I think that when you do manual banning, the human element can easily introduce false positives. Bungie doesn't exactly have experience with the PC ecosystem. Some people do claim that they were falsely banned.

I'm very surprised this is still alive. Not interested in "missions" though... I just want an open world game like STALKER.

this OK base game without any DLC? the season pass bundle is 18 which I'm balking at for a "on offer" price s I don't have much time for gaming anymore but I did like DX:HR.

On bit of an old machine too I guess, 2400+ @4ghx and a GTX970. I even had to run CPUID to check that

The DLC are separate from the main game, so you can't carry your character. I didn't play the DLC myself and I thought it was worth it.

I got 62 hours in it, which is crazy because I thought it was super short. If you love exploring every nook and cranny of a game world, you'll have a blast. If you don't, I think you'll find the game too short. It definitely feels like this is just the first part of a bigger story, which it probably was originally.

I wonder how mouse players do against people with aim assist. It's kinda like playing with hackers. Anyway, there's no way I'm buying this "industry bad practices simulator".

I had zero interest in this game because of the perspective. Now I have some interest in this game.

I was playing through daggerfall a few months ago because I missed it on original release. It is pretty damn hard.

Anyways, I'm amazed at how complex and crazy their dungeons are.. It's insane how easily it is to get lost where you have to actually follow the "Right turns only" kind of logic.


I'm impressed you were able to play it nowadays, so I'm giving you props The key to dungeons is to use the mark and recall spell. If you don't and you don't have a backup save, you might just have to start a new character...

You have to be insane/blind to say that AAA single player is dying.
Nope, this is EA's fault. Doesn't anyone remember what they did with Dead Space 3? It was transformed into a coop action game with microtransactions! That's what EA does. They take a franchise, they change it to cater to the lowest common denominator and then they add terrible business practices. Fans are disinterested and the mediocrity created by EA's practices doesn't pull in the others. After they made a quick buck for investors and the fans are all gone, they just close the studio and aim for another quick buck.

I've seen a lot of videos of it and it's pretty awesome what they did. There's still so much to do though. If they ever finish it, I hope that they start improving it, because it always had major issues.

I loved that game. Excellent portal clone with an amazing story. It's a bit long though and is no cake walk.

Someone let those guys make the next duke nukem game.

I'd rather have the guys who did the Shadow Warrior remake handle Duke(or Blood). I think it's better in every way. The previous Wolfenstein was pretty good, but there were a lot of things that I found infuriating about it. Plus I can't stand their engine's texture limitations.

Does it have first person monster control?

Unsure, but it does tout quite a few improvements on DK, which I would say are more important. But let's say if does have 1rst Person, what next? Point, it seems everyone loves DK, but all the attempts just get nitpicked for not be exactly the same and some are damn damn close. Dungeons 1 was bad, but 2 was a big step forward, hope for another step again. This game is doing things DK never did.

The only thing I want is first person. I usually don't like RTS games, but I loved DK because of the first person view. It was atmospheric, immersive and awesome to walk around your creation and do the fighting yourself. It was pretty useful for exploration too.

Fast cuts are a symptom of both poor direction and the proliferation of PG13 movies. Hollywood always wants bigger office hauls through as wide an audience as possible which is code for PG-13. So you end up with watered down bullshit like most Marvel movies where fast cuts and jumps are inserted with sound effects to take the place of actual violence. They might as well go one step further and just insert some bubble captioned BAM POW OOF.

I don't know why imagined violence is somehow better than depicted violence but it makes Disney a lot of money so they keep doing it. Personally I think showing people some moderate respresentation of impact is probably better in the long run than showing kids that people can just punch each other through walls without any blood. But perhaps I'm not giving kids enough credit, I don't know. Either way I like my violence in movies, please stop fast cutting everything. Deadpool was so refreshing.

In my opinion(I also heard this from filmmakers...), fast cuts are done because doing real action is very hard. One, it's hard to direct and requires significantly more time to do single shots that depict the action sequence well. Two, most action actors aren't capable of doing what their characters do and it's also too risky for them to do it because if something were to happen to them, hundreds of jobs would be in jeopardy. Cutting constantly is much safer as the actor doesn't actually have to "really" do the stunt.

All is not lost, though. In the last few years, some of the best action movies of all time have come out. Practical effects, long takes, violence and actors doing their own stunts.
