Oh shit.. now I wanna tell you all about the brewing mechanism...

Fuck it. Buy the game. XP

Is it like Witcher 1 where you can "guess" a potion by combining ingredients at random?


Yes you can and it'll appear in your inventory as "Unknown Potion". You could of course end up poisoning yourself or create some potent healing potion.
What I meant mostly was the immersion applied to the brewing mechanism. The game just never takes you away from immersion. You need to put nettle in with wine, boil it and then add some grinded belladonna and boil it again before pouring it into a bottle? You actually have to physically do all of that. No pop-up menu and a few clicks.
You do have pop-up-screen-and-a-few-clicks mechanisms, but only for repairing weapons and armor -- but then again, that will cost you Repair Kit charges so you'd want to head to a smithy and use the grinding wheel instead, for example.

So. Fucking. Amazing.

Just a simple stream of the game in the link below. Btw, I'll return to reviewing once I've settled in my new house.

I didnt expect a comparison to Gothic, is it that good ? Is the story exciting ?

The story is very exciting. About 2 hours in (but really depending on how long you allow yourself to bask in the epic first impressions of the starting area) something will happen that will put a fire in you and your protagonist. Crazy enough, another 2 hours AND SOMETHING ELSE happens that is just as captivating. I won't spoil anything. Just know that the story is realistic and therefore sometimes slow, but in a fantastic way if you like immersion and "becoming the protagonist".

People keep comparing this game with Skyrim and I don't get it. Skyrim had a formula created for the impatient. I think the team sat at a table and built the formula around the motto "If the player is traveling and nothing interesting is found or is happening within 30 seconds, we have failed.".
This is all nice and good, but KCD isn't like that at all. It's way more realistic. Therefore the environment is more of the same and you can ride your horse for minutes on a path enjoying the beautiful vista without encountering anything except traders and wayfarers. But because of this, running into bandits or other villains is way more interesting and scary. Or finding something interesting is that much morr rewarding. Oh, and funny enough "rewarding" can actually mean finding a batch full of the herb you need for a particular potion you wanna brew.

Oh shit.. now I wanna tell you all about the brewing mechanism...

Fuck it. Buy the game. XP

Heard that KC:D is good, but premature. Anyone here playing it?

If you play games for immersion and long for proper ROLE PLAYING, this game is the best game in decades and I mean that.

Sadly, some reviewers expected a hack-and-slash game and SOMEHOW call this game boring.

This game is like Gothic in the way that you start out as an absolute (and literally) illiterate coward with a vengeance. You'll learn to swordfight gradually; learn to read; learn to speak diplomatically, etc. You'll become an honorable knight, but start out a rather useless blacksmith's son.

Best game in decades, for me.

"... but straying from the core concepts of the title..."

Fuck off.

There really was only ONE single thing backers asked of you in return of receiving their money. ONE. SINGLE. THING. Namely: staying at the core concept of System Shock.

So double triple quotro fuck you, dude. Fuck you and your humble update. This is failure 2.0 and if they can sue you, let them. I hope they win.

"Gimme money so I make a new System Shock."
*Money x5 given*
"Making a game, but nothing like System Shock. Oops!"

Fuck off.

It was a simple console command before. No mod necessary.

Great game this, btw. Nice story. Great finale.

And yeah, I realize how much I sound like a shill or fanboy right now. But this is one of those games. Somehow, behind the silly bugs and performance issues, the purest of dev passion is bleeding through. I hate to see people not supporting these kind of devs. I know it's irrational, but fuck it.

Been watching some Twitch vids - anyone know if this is Skyrim level epic amount of game? Not to happy about he 59.99 price tag - will be looking for a sale or a key store.

You are why we can't have nice things.

I also like value for money, sorry.

The problem with the stereotypical consumers in the gaming market, is that hype is what they consider value. With enough money behind their PR campaign, this game would've convinced you it'd be even better than The Witcher 3, having you biased during release and much more forgiving of any bug or performance issue.

If it made any real sense, I would dare you to play the first hour of this game and tell me to my face that this game isn't worth a few pathetic hours of a day's work.

Bought on Steam. 5 minutes of actual play time versus 45 minutes of dealing with setting shenanigans. The final straw for me was disabling motion blur (a 3 minute wait to reload) followed by no audio. Refunded. The game has lots of promises under a blanket of bugs.

I had none of that and in fact love the fact that the game renders the game anew when new settings are selected. I hate "You have to restart the game for some settings to take effect" bullshit.

The game could surely use some optimization, but it's not so bad for me as to even consider a refund. This game is quite literally the best game I've played since a long time. No game managed to immerse me like this game ever. Not even Subnautica.

I'm sad to see there was a last straw for Kxmode. These devs deserve our money.

Holy shit this game is good. The performance definitely needs some fix from the devs but when I gave up tweaking and just went for it, the game grabbed me and pulled me in almost immediately. I did some simple tutorial-purpose errands before the game gave me a sequence of hollywood-like proportions. I have a cause now; a purpose. I AM the protagonist -- a buttom low shit-thrower who can barely hold a sword.
But I'll get stronger.
I'll make a name for myself.
I will come for you, with shining armor and a blade with your name carved into it's hilt.
But not yet.

Might have been my age, but although I have better memories of NWN (played that game LAN with my cousin forever) I do think NWN2 is the better game. NWN2's story really captured me and its expansion Mask of the Beholder is literally one of the best expansions I have ever bought. Just writing this has me longing intensely for a replay.
Maybe I'll do just that...

I liked Dying Light, but hated The Following (their expansion). There was no way to "summon" my car, so I always ended up without it, which made it a running simulator. The best thing of DL was the parcouring, so I never understood why they replaced that with wide open fields and a stupid buggy that wasn't around when you needed it to.

Happy to see Subnautica doing so well, especially with how long it was in Early Access.

Yes. Sadly, the rest of the list is fucking pathetic. Hard to get excited.

2. Re: Assassin's Creed: Origins Game+ Mode Coming Jan 29, 2018, 11:49 Quinn
 
I want them to release a mode that is like the normal mode (on whatever difficulty or game+ mode) that has the History mode in it. How awesome is it to be lead toward some arena, having then the choice to walk up to some placate that executes the History part of that area or building? Playing the actual game while becoming an expert on everything historic Egypt, in fewer words.
Who wouldn't want that?

Subnautica really is a great and solid game. Best survival game yet! One major disappointment I was certain would have gotten fixed at 1.0: Stuttering. The game is constantly loading new objects and even my SSD is put beyond its limits. The faster vehicles you get, the more of a problem this becomes.

I may want to see something that isn't there, but I really think the PC is a platform growing in popularity greatly in the last few years. The console vs PC war has basically ended among gamers, and the console players now mostly just nod their heads in defeated fashion when PC players claim superiority. Both online as in my real life surroundings, I hear of console players buying PCs or saving money for one as they desperately want to become part of this fabled (thank you Zero Punctuation) PC Master Race.

What I am getting at is that EA's catering to the console market will continue to hurt them in this era. The PC (personal computer) community is simply too loud and is only getting louder and louder.

EA will adjust or die within a matter of years, marking a renaissance in PC gaming. DA will cause the shift, just like Anthem and other games doomed to fail because EA.

You'll get your spiritual BG3 games. Give it 5 to 10 years.

News Comments > Anthem Delayed?
7. Re: Anthem Delayed? Jan 25, 2018, 02:13 Quinn
 
From the moment the E3 video was released, I was already done with Anthem. Everything in that video is a lie. Everything. The graphics, the pop-up "achievements", the HUD, the "teamspeak" communication (fucking retarded), the gameplay.
Everything.
I wouldn't be surprised if the entire thing was CGI.

Fuck Anthem. Fuck the sell-outs and fuck EA.

The best thing that can happen is Anthem flopping, Bioware dying and rising from the ashes as a new, independent studio (wih a different name, so some biotic manufacturer can finally call itself Bioware). With a fresh start they may find themselves again, and their new games will blow our minds in 2020.

I'm surprised to read words like "blatant" in these claims. Also, "promised"? Isn't a promise based on honor and nothing else? I've never held any business agreement document mentioning that silly word.

I expect these promises to be part of a legal-binding contract. Do you think Crytek is a team of teenagers? They are not as crooked as Chris Roberts but I am sure they come close. they know business

Yeah I get that. Might be the language barrier that has me so surprised. Promise, in Dutch, is a word based on something honorbound. Not contractually. There are other terms for that.

Anyway big deal. I find this entire thing childish AF and maybe this is the way it goes in America, but in The Netherlands I can't imagine reading a claim that isn't utterly objective in nature, only susceptible for being disproven objectively. This legal battle, to me as a Dutch guy, looks like a highschool fued.
