BTW when's it due out?

it's listed as shipping on November 13th, along with Crysis, Kane & Lynch, Super Mario Galaxy (OK, so it ships on the 12th, big whoop), Soldier of Fortune: Payback and Godzilla Unleashed and a ton of other games.  Destructor might want to start typing up his 'What are you buying this week' post now so he gets it out in time  icon_wink

and the week after is Mass Effect and Soul Calibur Legends.

62806  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Witcher on: November 03, 2007, 02:47:06 PM
well, I finally started getting Silver talents last night around level 15.  you get 3 bronze and 1 silver per level, and let me tell you, picking what to spend the Silver talent is pretty mind wracking.  everytime I get one it takes me about 10 minutes to decide what to spend it on- I guess I got spoiled by the availabiltiy of Bronze talents and being able to spend them on almost whatever I needed.  The nice thing is that according to the manual the enhancements like Pain I and Pain II don't stack, so if you bought Pain II before buying Pain I you don't have to worry about spending anything to get the first one.

If you thought the Outskirts are big you're going to love the swamp.  It's huge, and the monsters respawn and are out during the day, so it's not alot of boring running around.  you can't grind too much though, as the higher level you are the less XP you get from the monsters.  and even though you are confined to a small area, the devs did a great job of giving you plenty to do.

I have been able to make myself believe that everything after Aliens is just a bad dream.

It would be so awesome if Cameron directed a new Aliens film, and in the beginning Ripley woke up aboard the Nostromo and remembered Alien 3 & 4 as a long nightmare, then blew it off as too ridiculous to be true. nod

yeah, bring back the Colonial Marines!!!!!

I guess I would be wondering what the big story hook would be.  All the recent successful MMO's have had some sort of story epic to tell and I think many MMO players now expect it.  You have to have conflict for the game to have a context, usually good vs. evil.  Think Alliance vs Horde in WoW or the conflict in LoTRO.   



Good Daedra vs Evil Daedra?

I have a lot of mixed feelings on this game so I am gald they are releasing a demo.  For some reason though, I think its going to be another Sony let down.

likewise, tho i'm not seeing it so much as a possible sony let-down as just a 'been there, done that' experience re-bundled (the new video's pretty'n'all, & the gameplay looks tight, but if you played tomb raider: anniversary, there's just nothing innovative about it, really)...

but this one has eyepatches!

But I now have a representative handling my case who has promised me a 2-3 week turnaround and a free game for my troubles. They sent me my coffin via second day air, and will send it back to me second day air. Its all I really wanted this being my 7th one and all.

KUDOS to them... but you need to raise bloody hell.

They should hook you up with Mass Effect, or something.

Unless BD comes up with a cheaper solution, the format war will be decided after this holiday season.

unfortunately I doubt it.  I think most 'average Joe' consumers don't care enough to tip the scales either way.

That's true...except the average joe shops at Wal-Mart and Best Buy and snaps up the $99 HD DVD players like they come with a free year's supply of gasoline.  So when "Joe" sees the $400 Blue Ray player and $35 BR discs and then sees the $99 HD player and $25 HD discs which does he buy? 

but when they see the sub-99 dollar DVD players like this one and the 10 buck DVD's you can guess which they'll choose as they probably haven't been paying attention to the whole format thing and all they'll see is cheap prices.

Quote from: Hotfreak on November 02, 2007, 03:53:29 PM

Around level 13 with my BM and farther in to the story than I got on my level 15 beta character.  This seems odd since I always do all the quests and make sure to clear every level while minimizing level repetition (at least on this run through).  Anyway, I finally got to a level I find extremely challenging as it exposes one of the current weaknesses of my build (single target damage) and my gear (lack of stun defense).  Lots of huge enemies with shields and large health pools and the ability to stun me from range.  Gone now are my worries of HG:L being too easy.

Blademaster is proving quite squishy, too, which really ups the challenge.  Hit and run tactics with lots of speed and better defenses will be my next development focus.

Still hooked.

is it a gradual ramp up in difficulty, or is it one of those 'BAM! Supertough enemies out of the blue!' moments?

I think Valve would be adverse to allowing any DLC on anything not called Steam. So, I wouldn't count on it. More likely you'll have to overpay for a retail box.

It'll be called the Gold Box and include every Valve game that you already own for 80 bucks  icon_wink

Wii Play is probably the biggest disappointment on the Wii. A few of the games are fun, but I wish they had just done a little bit better. Yeah, it's really only a $10 game, but still. The Wii needs another fun collection. Just too many clunkers in Wii Play to want to stick it in the drive. And it's sold over 6 million copies. That'll teach 'em! Tongue

i was really disappointed in the fishing game.  I was expecting something closer to actual fishing that what they gave us.

you know, I can't remember the last time I've powered up my Wii.... Soul Calibur Legends should fix that.

Quote from: Kevin Grey on November 02, 2007, 12:40:27 PM

Yeah, I went back and forth for a while but OTS is what I settled on predominantly.  Isometric comes in handy in large group battles on occasion.

Had my first real tough fight last night (Later Portion of the Outskirts):

Spoiler for Hiden:
  Damn that hellhound was tough.  I don't know how many times I had to reload.  Ultimately found I should have been using the TK spell more. 

I did feel kind of betrayed by the game there though- the pain the hellhound inflicted was what was my undoing every time so I went back and picked up the Feel No Pain skill.  Well, you've got to be drunk to use the skill.  No problem, I down three beers at the start of the fight and I'm truly loaded. Well, it didn't work!  Damn thing was still able to inflict pain on me. 

I did love how all of the little sidequests you had been doing in that area came together and were all related.  I love it when RPGs do stuff like that.

Just got into the main city and I'm blown away.  Looks like lots of fun stuff to go do. 

yeah, that fight was the one I spent a bunch of time on.  My final strategy:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I kept on taking down the barghasts while taking shots at the Hellhound with Aardi.  It involved alot of running around to regenerate health and stamina, but eventually I got it stunned, walked up and staked it with my sword for an instant kill.  I don't remember it inflicting pain though- I thought that was 'blind' it was using.

The other fight that got me was the 'ambush' when you walk into the Salamandra hideout.  I mean, c'mon, you know it's their hideout, you just took out the front guards, but you can't walk in with your sword drawn and end up getting hit a few times before being able to get it out.
