All of that said, more on topic, I hope Dragon Age 4 is a lot more like Dragon Age: Origins, but I expect it to be depressingly consolish and bland.

I'm afraid so, yes. In fact I'd bet real money on it if there was a bet going on. I adored Origins. It was the spiritual successor to Neverwinter Nights to me -- NWN being one of my gaming pillars of my early youth.

I hated DA2, and I really liked DA3. I don't think I'd like DA3 in this time of my life. Back then it was quieter. No kid. Low rent. Etc. Now I wouldn't stand the filler stuff. And man, DA3 really was 75% filler wasn't it...

DA4 will be less RPG and just more action. I pray that it won't be anything like any souls game though. Fuck me. Ugh.

But now that I have the Oculus Rift S (anyone on the fence about VR, GET THIS THING! It is relatively cheap and it works so goddamn great that I am proud to say a new world opened up to me at 35 freaking years old) I'd love it if they go AAA VR, Alyx style. But with swords and magic, and visceral romance scenes near campfires.

Also, why isn't the game a bit cheaper on GOG? Wouldn't that be a *true* incentive to get most folks to use it there?

I mentioned this earlier, as well. To me, the fact GOG has it at the same price as Steam means they really don't give a shit where you buy their game -- they just laugh all the way to the bank because of the people who do buy it at their place due to this deluded meaning everyone is attaching to online stores/platforms.

Personally I love Wolcen. The graphics look good and the gameplay is extremely fun. There's lots of loot and I'm of a mind to consider this game more fun than D3. The MoreLuckThanSkill heard the devs gave up on this game. I'm surprised these devs could have that reputation! In fact, I nominated Wolcen for the Labor of Love on Steam this morning. I also think Darks is being a sourpuss -- they just corrected a benefit people had gotten unintentionally by an exploit or whatever, who cares? "They went through all of the accounts" kinda frames it like they're worse than the Gestapo though.

Always skipped Inquisitor. Interest is peaked. Might give it a shot!

I don't understand how the hell anyone could buy the Steam version over the GOG version. Like, what's the point? I bet if it's #1 on Steam, it has to have sold WAY more on GOG.

Exact same reason why people are collectors and people want collector editions. People want all their games on one platform preferably. They also want the games where their friends are. Well, at least that's why I prefer Steam over most other platforms. I'm not anal about it though, which is why I'm not against EGS for example.

I legit dont even know if I should upgrade for this game?

r7 1700 stock
1080
16 gigs RAM
1440p monitor running at 144hz

Then if I do upgrade, I have no idea to what? I heard the new (or soon to be out?) AMD chips are amazing for the price. I only research new tech when it comes time to upgrade.

Don't. The game will run fine on your 1080. The earlier spec requirements are evidence that the game visually won't be as overwhelming as we think. Just no ray tracing with that 1080 but who cares.

A worrisome lot of flaunting from a game of which the hype had us sold long ago.

I really hope the game will be as good as people imagine it to be.

I agree with OpticNerve except for a few things. I think Kassandra is still my favorite AC protagonist. Her looks (and I don't mean "DAIMN SHE HOT") and her voice acting were just phenomenal. She also had more depth than Eivor. The story of Eivor starts out really good, with a great intro part gameplay part cutscene, but it stops at it's most crucial moment due to some Atimus glitch. I'm sure this is done for a reason but what we're left with (at least I still am, 25 hours in) is a husk of a protagonist; someone who apparently has something happened to them, some important history that made them who they are, but it hasn't been told yet. It also took me a while to come to terms with the fact that this PILLAGING VIKING MONSTER in everything you do, is written as a soft-hearted poet. So don't expect to play as Ragnar Lodbrok.

As for the combat, I think it's awesome but somehow easier than Odyssey. Odyssey's combat felt a bit slower paced, yet fluid with clear animations, giving you complete control over everything Kassandra did. In Valhalla, the animations are more twitchy, like Eivor is moving with muscles that can spring like those of a cheetah. There are a lot of moments during battle that you can execute and "stomp" enemies. This is nice, but it's also what makes the combat too easy for me: you see, every time you get into an executing animation, you are invincible. I think the combat would've been way better and more balanced (and realistic) if you could still get hit during the executes. I'd refrain from executing in the middle of combat in that way, giving the combat feel a better flow and removing the "catching a breath" exploit.

A hunch tells me the graphics will disappoint many people. It will lack detail up close, look too metallic or plastic, lighting and effects... it will all look like what you were used to in games 5 to 8 years ago. Animations and good scenes will make up for much of it.

I dunno, it's what I think I'm seeing when I pay really hard attention in some of the gameplay vid segments I've been watching.

I won't care. I would even welcome it. And the spec requirements are on my side as well. But since most gamers think devs have been making logs until now and CDP just invented the wheel with Cyberpunk, I am expecting some outrage come December.
I'll have my popcorn ready by then.

That is someone speaking from the US perspective. This occurred in Canada, where police aren't politicised thugs that go around shooting everyone without consequence.

Got any evidence of this systemic police violence without consequence or do you just believe everything the antifa idiots want you to believe? Don't show me a handful of cases to prove your argument. I have a 100 justified shootings for every unjustified shooting. Go for unjustified shootings without consequence and your case grows thinner than union skin. Data please.

Dunno, maybe the game is exactly what it wants to be. I've stopped reading and watching reviews of games of which the gameplay vids have peaked my interest. Too many games I've enjoyed greatly in the past were butchered by jaded, click-hungry reviewers. It sometimes feels reviewers completely lost touch of the simple fun factor.

On that note, I am enjoying the hell out of AC Valhalla.

These guys killed the best game ever made: Severance - Blade of Darkness

That game was Dark/Demon Souls a decade before its time. There shouldnt be games referred to as "souls like" but "Severance like".

Yes, my heart will forever bleed a little. The unfairness of life, how a great new studio called RebelAct didn't become what it was meant to be.

What I find most hilarious is how you guys expect your politicians to hold your dick when you take a piss. In Europe, common sense > government & ministers. I remember the last time we had such a showbiz model of elections. In all our European countries. It was... let me think... oh yeah, never.

Try to unite yourselves from now on maybe. Let the 20 KKK members and 20 innocent black police victims no longer divide you all. You're the pariah of the world. We're all eating popcorn watching you all plummet into chaos. That isn't Trump's fault. That isn't Biden's fault. Nor the media's, even. Polarization is embedded into your culture. It's so sad it's become a joke.

As a "European", let me tell you that we had and still have A LOT of populists as presidents/chancellors/leaders/fuhrers. Johnson in the UK? Orban in Hungary? Kaczynskis in Poland? Berlusconi in Italy? Just to name a few from past and present. Dear US citizens, there is no "WE EUROPEANS" - Europe is heterogeneous. You got left and right extremists, you got left and right moderates, but what is really growing thin is the reasonable middle.

It takes a certain type of champion to read in my comment: "In Europe we have no political friction let alone extremism." I will not engage further in this rhetoric. Zero energy. Online political dialogue has reached the absolute reasonable bedrock in 2020.

From what I hear the game is absolute shit anyway. Maybe someone hacks it into a good game...

It's not horrible, but there are 2 things going against it. 1)no main protagonist
I would disagree with #1. I'm only a few hours into the game so far, but I would say that DedSec itself it the main "protagonist". The fact that there isn't a single main character is kind of the point, and I don't feel that it detracts from the game. I got the game free with my GeForce 3080, and I installed it mostly to play with all the pretty new graphics features, but I'm honestly enjoying it more than I expected to.

An idea or some sort of collective cannot be a "protagonist". Any story needs a protagonist to ground itself in. This is exactly why every RTS story sucks unless it has protagonists (Starcraft 2 for example). Whenever someone tries to reinvent the wheel, please stay away from the concept of protagonists.

The only hope I have for me having fun in WD3 is me finding the perfect randomly generated John Wick kind of dude and just play that guy all the time, fooling myself into believing he's the protagonist. Then again, I've already heard that the ex-NPCs you play are too generic to ever lose yourself in the illusion.
