The new Skellige deck is just kind of straight up bullshit.

Play Cerys: Horde 3 Warrior Maidens, who strong bond. Boom, one card, 58 (!!) points of damage on the fucking board. For most decks, 58 damage is a good fucking ROUND.

They should have called it the "We don't know how to program decent Gwent AI, so we just created this bullshit deck in an effort to have it be challenging." deck

Like playing against the monster deck, make sure your deck isn't full of melee cards and make sure you have at least one frostbite card.

Did they update the combat? i don't remember it being so fluid actually.

The movement system got updated, which fed over into the combat system, and they made all Geralt's attacks interruptable so you weren't stuck with an attack while a monster was gearing up to gank you.

I just now realized that it's entirely possible the game's combat was much more pants when it first came out. I didn't start playing it until patch 1.07 or 1.08, by which time it may have been measurably improved. So my discussions regarding combat may be one-sided from the perspective of the "better" combat.

As the combat is now, I think it's fine. It's likely not the greatest combat system in the world, but if you spend some time learning it, Geralt is a total badass and will do what you want him to do.

There's not been many games where I executed a perfect combat session and thought: fuck me, I'm awesome. The Witcher 3, though, is definitely one of the few. To me, without second thought, that makes it good combat.

If they'd have forced me to play a black protagonist without the story needing him to be black, I'd be disappointed. I'm white and I can best immerse myself into a white playing character, simple as that.

I always find this odd.

I'm not being critical of you, so don't think this is an attack or calling you out. You didn't say you will only play as white people, or anything like that, you stated a preference and said you are also excited when you move away from that preference. Given how charged these conversations can be, I feel this lengthy disclaimer is needed.

But do you struggle with playing as an Orc? Does it matter if the white person is from a far off future, or an entirely different culture, or is Irish or Italian or Spanish or Azerothian? Do you have trouble with immersion if the character is much older or much younger? What if the character is some form of Jazzy Jackrabbit? Do you get immersed with Mario, even though he's a 2 foot tall stereotype that is capable of saying little more than his own name?

I just don't feel like immersion in character is a big deal for me in games. In FPS games, I'm just there to blow shit up. In strategy games, I'm there to lead others to blow shit up. If Doom Guy was a woman it wouldn't make Doom less immersive, and having my own name in FTL doesn't make it more so. I never felt like I was Michael or Trevor, and if you give me the option to create my own character in any game I'm never making a doppelganger of myself, or idealized version of myself, I'm making a monstrously deformed freak that is endlessly amusing in any cut scene.

Thanks for that disclaimer at the start. Opened myself for some seriously nasty quote-mining there

I tend to think of myself as a very imaginative person and I express this in short-stories and crazy daydreams, but in the subject of a playing character.. I'm horribly single-minded and unimaginative. If I have the choice between multiple races (be it orcs, humans, elves, etc) I always pick a white human (male). I don't necessarily make the character look like myself though, except for the hairstyle if it looks good.

I enjoy playing an orc or a goblin if that's the point of the story, like Of Orcs and Man for example.

But yeah, please don't take away my choice for no reason whatsoever.

But in this case, being an African-American dude is a decision made from the get-go and the entire story is wrapped around that. So in this case, I' m excited and I can't wait what the story will tell me. It was the same with the GTA San Andreas -- it wouldn't have made any sense if that protagonist was white.

Trial and error with death on the line is immersion breaking in my opinion.

So you want to never be challenged? What's the point of having any kind of confrontational system, if you can't fail at it?

It's not that I want to be guaranteed to win, I want to have a decent chance to win. I would never look at a confrontation in real and think "hmm, that dude with the knife is dangerous, I'll have to get killed a few times until I know how he fights" and my character doesn't think like this either.

Death isn't the end of the world for me, but it is for my character. When I reload, it's like moving to a parallel universe.

Geralt is Geralt, you are you. If you take "immersion" to the level you're presenting, then you should've watched as many Youtube videos of TW3 combat until you felt ready to do it for yourself. Again, Geralt knows how to fight all these Drowners. It's you who fucks it up for him.

You cannot properly parry drowner attacks, but timed properly, you can counter their light attacks.

I enjoy the Witcher's combat gameplay. Once you're skilled enough, you hardly ever use the big dodge anymore. It looks freaking awesome to do a tiny sidestep within a group of enemies and chop a few heads off a fraction of a second later.

Just continued playing the Witcher 3 and there are a lot of improvements! The UI is way better, I definitely notice performance improvements especially with Nvidia hairworks. The patch is fantastic. I love this game.

That combo is easily fucking handled by a Tracer Ult, Pharah, hell even a decent Junkrat would look at that combo as candy.

No offense, but is the cursing really necessary at 7:48am? You can make your point without looking like a 13 year old.

Does that word hurt your feelings? And if so, why do you think that is?

Just because I have a sword, a mech, spells, or six-shooters...to me that is mostly cosmetic...but if you feel that is enough innovation for you...fair enough.


Well what do we have here, a dude with a lot to say about something he obviously hasn't tried. That much is obvious from that quote. You just cannot say the different Overwatch classes mainly just differ in cosmetics and not make a complete fool of yourself in the process. Even if you quote me on this and tell me you HAVE played Overwatch, it will be extremely hard for me to believe you.

The gameplay per class differs A LOT. It is in fact the unique selling point of Overwatch. There's, what.. 20 classes? And they all differ so much from eachother. Pressing [shift] as Soldier 76, you sprint. Pressing [shift] as Pharah, you jetback high into the air. As Junkrat, you drop a mine. As Symmetra, 1/6 turret. As Mercy, you fly towards the teammate you aim for to come to their healing resque. As Reinhardt, you charge into enemies slamming them into walls. As the Reaper, you become incorporeal for 4 seconds giving you the opportunity to either charge into fights or flee from them while being harmless and immune in the meantime.

And that's just [shift]! With the [right mouse-button] Soldier 76 shoots a bomb. Pharah hovers. Junkrat deploys a beartrap. Symmetra... Can't remember. As Mercy, you channel a DPS buff onto the teammate you aim at. Reinhardt holds before him a one-way barrier to shield himself and his allies. As the Reaper, you can teleport to a different spot within your visual, limited range.

Classes differ so much, it really makes all the difference. Please don't bullshit.

Hehe me too! It's 23:55 here and work tomorrow, but after work... Fuck, I just remembered as I wrote that that after work there's band practice. Sometimes I hate social life and silently wish I was single with a good enough income translating bs texts between gameplay...

Man would it be a fucking stunt if this game surprises us with a kick-ass singleplayer/co-op campaign...

Seriously though was all the content in the open beta? The story they've set up with these short films is one that wasn't even remotely touched upon in the beta, what with the subjugated robots, that mysterious moon, the weird shit you're escorting in some game modes, etc. Makes me wonder if the retail version has a surprise waiting...? (I don't mean a campaign mode ofc, that was just wishful thinking out loud)

Apart from performance issues, it's incredible how not one review I've read managed to put the finger on why the game is only a bit better than mediocre. They just can't seem to clarify what it is that makes the game meh. It's annoying. So far everything I see in Youtube vids makes me want to buy the game... :\

Game looks terrible. So does Overwatch. Welcome to TF2/i dunno what other game v3.

I'm a weird fuck in photographs but ppl consider me pretty charming in real life. Overwatch is the same, I think xP When I watched trailers of it, the artstyle didn't do it for me. When I started Overwatch up, however, I realized immediately that everything about the graphics is great. It's very easy on the eyes and runs like a fucking charm.

I've played this game before, it was called Borderlands 1 and 2 and 1/2. While the humor is good there was nothing compelling at all that makes me want to play it like Overwatch.

Why do people feel the need to bring up Overwatch in a discussion of a game not even in the same genre?

It's pretty sad that this game suffers because people wrongly associate it with Overwatch, leaving the general gaming community to dislike it by that same association.

Apparently, the game is enough of a similar game as Overwatch to compare it otherwise ppl would've also brought up DOOM way more often as a comparison, for example.

I'm the same. I compare it with Overwatch and it's not by choice. It's a feeling. I played Battleborn, then played the Overwatch beta, and the satisfaction I got from the latter one was incomparable with the satisfaction I got from Battleborn. It sounds fucking crazy, but Overwatch is "perfect" in a way. The way Overwatch managed to bind me to the game is freaky as fuck. It's like Blizzard has a secret knowledge on how to get ppl obsessed over their games -- like they have some creepy subliminal shit going in the background... lol...

Battleborn doesn't even look bad, but releasing a new character this quickly after release seems like a pretty sad "please clap" moment after Overwatch completely trashed their sales despite not even being the same kind of game.

Overwatch has already been released in your area and it is outselling Battleborn?

It was the Overwatch open beta. I bought Battleborn and had ok fun the first day, then downloaded the Overwatch open beta and played it. I got struck so hard by a new quality standard that I just couldn't go back to Battleborn afterwards.

I really wanted to play this.

So I bought the game on Steam, started it up...and it wanted me to create an account.

Hell no.

Received refund.

9 months later I wanted to play this, forgot why I hadn't yet, bought it on Steam...and it wanted me to create an account.

Hell no.

Received refund.

I'm not creating a damn account on your crap just to play a single-player game. Stupid companies make stupid decisions and go out of business.

People like you are a mystery to me. Buying a game but not playing it because you have to make a silly little account by filling in 2 things. Is this a big brother principle thing or really what the fuck?
