This has been the way of things since Gone Gold. The community is small but tightly knit and (mostly) mature. Occasionally new people will appear while others leave, but there's no large influx of new members and there has never really been. I think most of us like it this way, as too many new members will turn this forum into another generic gaming forum where you can hardly turn a corner without wandering into a profanity-laden troll. We've survived this way for well over 10 years, and I don't see the community going away.

Most Kickstarters have a dramatic boost in the last two days. I believe this game will get one too. I would actually be somewhat surprised if it doesn't at least reach 300 by the end, though some of the wild enthusiasm for Kickstarter has dwindled recently, making such predictions a bit less safe.

I'm not seeing any error messages, but loading the front page (not the forums) makes Opera completely hang for several seconds. I don't experience that with any other website I visit, so something is seriously wrong with how it is set up.

We do not support Opera, but I think we may have fixed whatever issue that was causing that.

Seems it works now, yes. Also, unless you specifically write features for other browsers (why on earth would you do that?), you DO support Opera. That's the advantage of browsers that comply with established standards. smile

Here's the stretch goal list.  I'm hoping they at east hit 260 as their character portraits are one of their weakest points, so getting another artist for the characters could really help make the game better.

I don't know if new character portraits are part of the package for the 260 stretch goal. I'm hoping we'll reach 300 (and I think we just might) since the addition of a high-risk area would change the dynamics of the game for the better and give you something to strive for even when you start to feel that you've got the regular areas under control.

Yeah, I'll second that.  There's no compelling reason to grind through the first inFamous, but if you like it enough to feel curious about the vague plot points they skim through at the beginning, you could always go back and play it afterwards.  I recommend doing it on Easy though, where being sniper-shot from a quarter-mile way by bums with shotguns won't leave you feeling like the least super-powered guy in town.

I couldn't stand Infamous, partly because of what you just said, and partly because the so-called "moral choices" came down to a choice between "help the old lady cross the street" and "murder the old lady and hang her mutilated body from a lamppost as an example to others". It's like the Fischer Price version of actual choices, like being handed a book called "Baby's First Moral Choice" and being asked to take it seriously.

Of course you can be overleveled! This is a game with predetermined enemy strength, so if you keep leveling up you'll outgrow the enemies in strength unless you also move forward in the story. There's indeed 200 levels, but you're not supposed to get anywhere near that limit in your first playthrough. That limit is there so you have something to strive for through multiple rounds of NG+.

The game world is actually pretty small compared to other open-world games like these. It's just the fact that you have to walk everywhere and that the world is crawling with monsters that makes it seem larger.

On that note, what does being dragonforged entailed? As far as I could tell, the item didn't seem that much better than it was before (maybe it was even the same?).

AFAIK, dragonforged is just the 4th upgrade level, one you can't buy. As such it's probably just a small upgrade from level 3.

My favorite part of the extended ending is

How easy or hard are Escort missions?,i have seen them on the notice boards but i hate escort missions and i have been leaving them there on the notice board,are there any i really should do?,or do you think it will be fine to ignore every one of them? ninja

The escort missions are generally pretty high-risk. The people you escort are very vulnerable, so if you get attacked by something large you can't just use your normal tactics. As far as I understand, doing escort missions raises your affinity with that particular NPC. I think that can affect prices if they sell you stuff, and it can also lead to them becoming your romantic interest.

From what I've seen there are 7 different endings, 4 of them "true endings".  This YouTube playlist has video of them.  My problem is that even though there are points where you can tell you may have choices, it's completely unclear what they are and will lead to.

Yeah, the way the dynamic parts of the story are handled is very bad. In addition to the different endings, there's also a romance subplot that you are supposed to have control over but which I never noticed until I was suddenly and inexplicably paired up with a member of my character's same gender. This was a character I had barely interacted with during the game, but which was now telling me she wanted to move in with me and was part of big, dramatic moments as if I was supposed to care about her. It fell flat and managed to compete with Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophesy for the #1 WTF romance in gaming. Just to add another layer of WTF to the whole thing, one of the romances you can get is supposedly underage. Very underage.

You might be misunderstanding.  You still have access to the entire world pretty much.

I don't think he's talking about the transition to post-game, but the end of the game itself. At that point you will no longer have access to the world without starting NG+.

I just finished it today too. I feel like I missed out on some major plot developments at the end, but the game gave me no hints on how to find them. I've heard people talking about certain important events, such as

Spoiler for Hiden:
rescuing the Duke's wife when she's kidnapped, and quite possibly overthrowing the Duke as well (though I may have misread that one)

but they never occured in my game. Instead certain plots were left hanging, unresolved.

New Game+ is a bit weird so far. The enemies are very easy compared to what you faced at the end of the game, and you're given a bizarre mix of quests where some give you so little xp and money that they aren't even worth the time you spend reading the quest description (ie. their rewards are the same as they were when you came across them the first time around), while others give massive amounts of cash for no apparent reason. It makes me unsure of what to expect. Perhaps we're just supposed to rush through it to get to the post-game section again?

It's just the game cache lagging behind what you're doing. This is most likely to happen when you're sprinting around inside towns. For those of you who think the current generation of consoles is adequate, look at this kind of stuff to see why it's not.

Poor Jarrod pawn  icon_frown

I'll poor a 40 for the homies

the funny thing is that I went back to the same cave/canyon area last night to find some documents, and I had the same group of pawns, and I lost his pawn again.  I'm not sure how, halfway through the area the pawn was just gone.  no skull on the map or anything.  I know I had everyone when we got attacked by Saurians, and then some harpies flew in and then finally some ghosts got mixed in, so the battle was pretty chaotic.

The pawn probably fell off a cliff (perhaps carried off by a harpy). They don't get skulls when that happens, but are instead immediately forfeit.

It's Warhammer 40k, not 20k. The WH40k mythos is so old and well-established at this point that few stories try to explain everything. For a game like Space Marine you may just have to accept that there's something called Chaos Daemons and leave it at that, but if you truly want to learn more, there are plenty of sources online. You could try worse places than the Lexicanum for example, though it's got one of the most dreadful color schemes in the history of the Internet and is run by people who think constructive criticism is a mortal insult.

And as for the "fun" setting, it only served to highlight Max's dark mood by contrast.  This actually happened quite a bit in classic noir films.

There's also really nothing "fun" about it. Anyone who thinks that must have either just watched previews or haven't been paying attention. Everything Max gets involved with in this game is bleak as hell, even if it happens in sunlight (which is much more rare than you'd think by watching previews. Most of the game happens at night or inside dark buildings). Even parties are dark affairs as seen through Max's eyes, where he's surrounded by false, possibly dangerous people and lots and lots of cheap booze, which he readily uses to dig himself a hole to feel sorry for himself in.

The gameplay mechanics were decent but at times mediocre. Coming from a huge fan of the first two games

The game I've played through the most times ever is Blade Runner. The next two games in that list are Max Payne 1 and 2. I've played through each of them AT LEAST 5 times (probably a handful more. It's been a while), with the last being less than 2 years ago. I can tell you that the game mechanics in Max Payne 3 are nearly identical to the previous two games, with just a few tweaks. As a huge fan, you're probably blinding yourself from remembering the other games properly, or confusing your feelings about the game mechanics with your feelings about the story treatment.

From what I've seen in interviews, this isn't true. IIRC, he has revealed a few snippets of information about where the series will end up, such as the eventual fates of one or two characters, but he has not given anyone an outline of the remaining plot (except his wife, I suppose).

You will get a quest about a griffin that is one of the finest quests i ever tried in a game.

I thought it was the shittiest quest I've played so far in the game, so tastes differ. It was glitchy, had unclear objectives that require you to do things you might not even be aware that the game allows you to, and asked you to run pretty much from one side of the map to the other while NPCs magically teleport there (when out of sight. Until you go away they just stand there). Then there's the way it takes away camera control from you during a certain section, forcing you to run at full speed while only being able to see 1-2 meters in front of yourself (with a conveniently placed pit at the end of the run which could plunge you to your death), and a scripted series of events that make you wonder if you're supposed to be attacking the enemy at this time or just wait for a specific event to occur (it's mostly the latter).

I was glad when it was over.
