I don't have a quad core but I beat everything else. I'm not anticipating any issues.
682  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alan Wake: the next DNF? on: June 05, 2009, 09:45:29 PM
looked really sharp and different but also looked like it was on rails. Also the "TV Episode Feel" is going to keep pulling me out of the world. I remember when it was first announced and they said multicore only. I had a smoking single core and was bummed. It has taken so long to come out i've upgraded but now I'm not sure I want it. The character standing to the side of the screen with a controller? What the hell is that.?

I first heard about this almost 2 years ago. I love the premise but it seems to be taking forever and their is still no release date.

I'm an idiot. I never noticed the box to click on that selects the entire party. Funny how it never made much difference until the caves. they still followed me until then. Enjoying this part of the game.
685  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: April 08, 2009, 04:20:12 PM
Anyone else having pathfinding issues in the deep caves? My party hangs to far back and encounters with enemys can then be a problem. I can get around it by manualy moving everyone up as we go along but it's a minor pain.

Anybody win the trial? I thought the way they did that was pretty cool. And how you got out of it if you lost.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Are you talking the one in the dwarf town?  Because yeah, I did win that.  Collect enough evidence, state your case well enough, and it's a slam dunk.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Yup that's the one. it said I had collected enough evidence but I could probably get more. I figured I had enough. Maybe I gave some of the wrong answers in wrong places. If you lose you get a nice cut scene of the mountback being led off and she is slumped over and really looks dejected. Then as soon as you get outside, a dwarf tells you of a secret way into the prision. As you break her out you encounter Alissa's minion who you kill. He has evidence that gets you out of the whole thing. I thought it was a good way to get you back on track into the main quest.

I'm sure I could prowl around some message boards and find out how long the game is but I don't want to. I just want to follow the story until it ends. Been playing since it first came out and I think I still have a few areas to unlock. Still enjoying it.

691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: March 19, 2009, 07:03:47 PM
I think the game is pretty big. I'm in my 4th area after the Ferdok and I think the story is still just getting started.
692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wolfenstein news, videos and pics! on: March 19, 2009, 07:01:58 PM
I heard about this one last year. The last game was just so....average. Not bad, but not really exciting either. Probably pick this up but it's hardly a "day 1 gobble up all the news I can till it comes out" title. The only one of those i currently have is Dragon Age. I was kinda like that about Bioshock 2 but playing as a big Daddy doesn't really do it for me.
693  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: March 18, 2009, 03:53:30 PM
Yay! No more plinking! My ranger bowman felt kinda weak even with double shot. Bu now I have an improved bow, war arrows and I kicked strength up a notch. Very nice damage dealing now. The game is a bit harder than if I had played my usual melee tank guy, but I am enjoying doing something different. And Fez, it seems to me so far that each area has a different monster/enemy set.

So who did folks side with in the Dark Forest/Blood Mountains?

Spoiler for Hiden:
I went with the witches, although I apparently got dinged for shedding blood when getting the cooking pot back, not sure how I could have sneaked in.[/spoiler

Spoiler for Hiden:
Witches for me as well. I have since seen on boards that it is possible to sneak out the pot. No idea how. Apparently we missed a good melee trainer by dissing the ray of light. That's okay. No way I'm signing with the inqusition.

Please help with this simple quest
Spoiler for Hiden:
Where is the missing woodcutter in the blood mountains? I've cleared the whole area.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Hmm, I remember freeing him.  He was surrounded by some thugs, not actually too far from his buddies.  In the forest.  Now that I think about it, he may have been near the Estate, but I can't recall.

Re; The missing woodcutter:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Due east of the loggers camp - top left corner of the F in The Dark Forest on the map

Thank you. I finally got them to spawn for me. I swear I had been over that area more than once and nothing. I give it one last look around and suddenly-there the group is.
696  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: March 13, 2009, 08:35:42 PM
I am in know way an expert on this as I just want to play the game not spend time researching the perfect build. I'm up to level eight and for my ranger I have been doing skills and talents mostly. It seems so far I can't improve the bow skill more than one or 2 a level as it hits "max". I did put a point into constitution as I wanted to get an endurance skill that required it. I'm cranking up willpower as fast as I can as well. For my gang I'm putting most of the points into skills and talents as well. Seems okay so far
697  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: March 13, 2009, 03:48:55 PM
Thanks for checking in Eightball. Did not get a hammer in that battle. Will look once more for the woodcutter but I'm pretty good at crisscrossing. I so wish there was an english language walkthrough for this. Especially since it locks out an area when you are done with it. Still having fun. And allthough the story is nothing groundbreaking, I'm enjoying it. I'm sure Lizard boy is going to get it eventually.

Found a new very tough battle
Spoiler for Hiden:
In the blood mountains. Of all things trying to pick up the stupid frog for the witch. Not the guy you give a bracelet to that turns him into a frog, the other one sitting on a stump by the pond. When you come back there are 6 warriors and I kept getting sliced and diced. I had to try and lure them into the other toads as they would leave me and start attacking them but it still took me like 20 tries. Brutal.

Unrelated-double shot arrows is really nice!

Spoiler for Hiden:
Lol, you can talk your way out of that one...and actually, I found out later (because I did exactly what you did; i.e., I chopped them to pieces)...if you resolve it bloodlessly, you get a better reward!

Spoiler for Hiden:
HOW! The seargent made one comment and then I went straight into the pause before battle. Did I fail some sort of check? It took me forever to win that battle.

There was a point in the first section that I was getting zero for some rats I killed. But I never got a large amount for things like Harpys that were really hard for me to kill at level 4. Maybe it only adjusts downward? Still love the game and the artwork. The gloomy forrest really was dark and shadowy. I look forward to each new section of the map that I'm sent to. Still in the early part of the game too.

I have a question before I buy this game. Do any enemies respawn? This is always a game-killer for me. As soon as Thugs started respawning in NWN2, I lost interest. The same issue ruined Stalker for me, Sacred 2, and probably a few more games as well. There have been a few games that had well placed and rare respawns that were good, but most games seem to overdo it. Its like they put those in there to slow you down so they can advertise 60 hours of gameplay as if respawns were content.

I agree with you. Really hate repawns allthough I got through Far Cry 2 gritting my teeth because I liked the rest of the game so well. With regaurds to Drakensang, there is some mild respawning in some areas, no repawning in some areas and I have not noticed any respawning in quest "dungeon like areas" like the brewery rat quest. Plus the monsters that respawn appear on your map and are easily avoidable if so desired.
703  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: March 09, 2009, 05:02:24 PM
Yeah all the experience you get for killing things/completeing quests seems fixed. I must admit I do prefer when you get more experience when you tackle enimies situations above your level. It's no real deal breaker though.

I'm finding the marsh fairly tough as well. Not so much the skeletons, but those harpies were tough. Is it supposed to take forever to shoot a longbow or am I doing something wrong?

Longbows take longer to use, but do quite a bit more damage than the short bows.

You'll see when you're examining bow weapons, it has damage, and then something called CR.  The higher the CR, the slower it is to fire the bow.

Most of the short/elven bows have low damage, but a CR of zero.  The longbows have a CR of 2, which means they effectively shoot every other round (I think).

Thanks. I saw that and kinda figured that's what it meant, but it still seemed to take a really long time so I wasn't sure. I'm into the area after the marsh. Still loving the game.

In addition, there's a spell that removes poison that you may have access to at that point.  You can always head back to Ferdok and stack up on Golman tea btw.

I found a vendor with the Cure Poison spell in the Ducal keep section of Ferdok that opens up after you rescue the Archivist from those attackers in the pansy purple tights.  I think it was the Alchemist who gives you a quest to find out how to make a potion and say she will join you when you're finished (unfortunately reading the book she gave me crashes my game when I try and turn the page), or else it was a Devotee.

I'm finding my Charlatan party member goes down pretty quickly as well.  I'm under Ferdok right now, trying to find the soure of the rat problem, and whenever I get ambushed she goes down very quickly, usually within the first few seconds.  luckily I can now summon a wolf so I at least have an extra body when being swarmed by 10 or so of the tougher gray wolf rats.  I do like how they have one dwarven NPC who acts like a warp between the entrance to the brewery basement and the current level of the dungeon I'm in.
Spoiler









I have heard the end of this quest is very very tough. People have recommended holding off until you are level 8 or so. I have not finished it so I cannot say for sure.

Please do. I have been rather curious about this one and the few reviews out there haven't really helped me that much. I always do better on games I'm on the fence about just hearing from regular gamers in forums.
708  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: March 07, 2009, 12:27:49 AM
Yeah I don't have the spell or a character that has learned the recipe icon_cry I know I can head back but on my quick save I went out on the marsh and got trapped by some harpies that I cannot beat in my weakened state. That's part of the fun, learning this stuff in the game. Hate going back a save though.
709  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drakensang english demo (win a copy!) on: March 06, 2009, 09:59:54 PM
posion is not your friend! What I usualy do in an area where enemy's can give you a damage that stays with you is not heal after each infliction because you have limited cures and the next group could be just around the corner. But posion can add up and it really cuts down your strength. I'm kinda stuck in the Marsh now and may have to go back to a bit earlier save.

Did anyone else have trouble figuring out how to travel to Moonbridge Marsh or am I the only idiot? I kept thinking the exit had to be out of the town some where and had completely forgotten that you can scroll the world map. Only some vague random desperate clicking along the bottom of the world map got me going.

Still wprking my way through the opening area. Overall my impressions are fairly positive. Graphics are good. Nice big areas to explore. However I could do without the big question marks popping up on the map showing me where to go to complete the quest. Can't you just give me enough info to point me in the right direction so that I feel a bit of accomplishment when I find it? Battle is kind of on the slow side, but at least it gives you time to fire off your spells. It is scratching my rpg itch.

Interesting. The only 2 games on that list that I would have is Myst and Civ. Starcraft I never got to play as I was still all Mac then. Trade wars I have never even heard of and Doom is just so over rated imho. But that's what's so cool about gaming. So many different kinds out there.

Wow, it stood out to me like a big neon light when I went to the very first mission. It won't kill the game for me by any means, but it's really kinda lame.
717  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 Impressions thread (now with FIRE!!!) [56K beware] on: January 23, 2009, 06:00:13 PM
I just got this and did the first two missions to get my first buddy.So I'm still feeling my way around quite a bit. One disapointment so far. Are they really going to put the way to your objective in freaking red on the signpost? I know about hand holding but the map is pretty easy to understand and follow. Seeing that big sign "Lumber Mill" in red really jerked me out of the game.
718  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alan Wake....update 10/22/08 on: October 22, 2008, 09:36:11 PM
I've been interested in it since it was first announced. I get a fun creepy scary vibe from it where you can't be sure what is reality and what isn't. That said, it would be nice if Remedy moved faster than a glacier.
719  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Farcry 2 thread on: October 18, 2008, 06:19:51 PM
I'm trying to decide between FC2 and F3. I had pretty much decided on F3 first but I keep hearing such great things about FC2. The lack of rpg elements is not a deal breaker. I just think F3 will be longer so FC2 will be cheaper by the time I am done with F3, but now all I can think of is how cool FC2 looks and it's here a week earlier.
720  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 DRM on: October 15, 2008, 04:57:57 PM
DRM has never bothered me although I know some people have a DRM boycot. I however am a one game at a time guy and have decided to play Fallout 3 first.
