I pretty much always go for the PC versions of games when available since my PC is way more powerful than my consoles. Still, for Amalur I went with the PS3 version, to a large degree because the graphics are so bad anyway that seeing it in greater detail won't really do much for me.

I haven't really gotten far into the game yet, as I couldn't really start playing until yesterday. Took a fighter character up to level 3 on Normal. Found Shepard's armor (despite not playing the ME3 demo) and the Fate-Touched weapons and used them (dropped the weapons quickly though as I could craft much better ones almost instantly). Ended up feeling that the game was way too easy, and I hated having Shepard's armor equipped since it meant that I was overpowered and could find no joy in finding armor drops for a while since they'd all be worse than what I had.

Ended up restarting with the same kind of character on Hard. Went up to the chest with all the items, opened it, then promptly closed it and pretended it didn't exist. The game got much better as a result.

I think now that they hit 1 million they should start funding another game, and then another one every million dollars after that.

They won't do that, as that would break a fundamental promise they make in the Kickstarter itself: Any money above the initial $400,000 will be used to improve the quality of the game and the documentary. More money means better and more music, better voice actors, better graphics, etc...

Windows 7 is the only decent choice today.

Hmm, those are some very polarizing reviews.

I get the impression (from the reviews I've read) that the polarizing nature comes from the involvement of R. A. Salvatore (this is the guy who introduced one of the most loved and hated fantasy characters ever, after all) and the WoW-like graphics. Both of those are pretty huge negatives in my eyes, so I'll have to more or less ignore them in favor of the actual gameplay. Some reviewers may not be able to do so, perhaps because they weren't prepared for what the game is. The combination of Salvatore and WoW-graphics leads to a dense and generic world and story that certainly doesn't appeal to everyone.

if that is true then i WILL give it a miss,i just thought they were exclusive weapons and armour,i am already buying the guide with the game being 200hrs + so probably will already have all the help i need anyway if i get stuck

so are the pre-order weapons the same then?,with the game out Friday i was thinking of going out and pre-ordering still

I admittedly have only limited knowledge about these new DLC packs, so what I said above may not be strictly true. I'd be surprised if it isn't however.

The pre-order weapons are more powerful than other early equipment from what I hear, but not by much. They aren't going to change the experience to a large degree.

not sure why they are cheat codes,they are packs of exclusive armour and weapons for certain toons that aren't usually in the game,probably do something that the other weapons don't do,but i don't think they are meant to overpower a player are they?

Of course they are! They aren't cheat codes. They are glorified cheat codes. I drew the parallel with the hint numbers you could call in the old days to get actual cheat codes, and the comparison is apt in my opinion. Unless EA has suddenly decided to try something completely new, these DLC packs are a way to make you overpowered (though not too much, I gather) through the early parts of the game. You essentially pay money to reduce the difficulty. I severely doubt the game has been balanced against this new equipment.

It's EA's way of tempting you with more power if you're only willing to part with some extra cash. They did the same thing with Dead Space, providing overpowered (and overpriced!) weapons to those willing to pay for it. The overall opinion was that these new weapons and armor ruined the game experience, at least for the first playthrough.

I actually may only need to buy one of the DLC anyway

You don't need to buy anything! These DLC packs are just glorified cheat codes that only help in the early game, unless I'm entirely mistaken. I'm surprised they're generating discussion at all, particularly in a community where I'd expect most players don't need that kind of thing. Are you people so desperate to own every single bit of content for a game, no matter how useless to you, that you absolutely MUST purchase any bit of DLC that comes across your path?
4172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur demo on: February 07, 2012, 03:16:23 PM
Not to mention that this is essentially the modern version of cheat codes that you had to pay to get by calling certain telephone numbers. These DLC packs only give you a power boost and shouldn't at all be necessary for those wanting to play the regular game.

When you think about it, it does feel like marketing manipulation to get us to purchase early from them.

No need to think or feel. They are manipulating the market on purpose, for obvious reasons. It's even worse with games like Mass Effect 3 where they, after 2 games on Steam, decide to make it exclusive to Origin. At that point I say "fuck you!" to EA and find alternate means of playing the game that doesn't benefit their greed and doesn't reward them for a hostile attitude towards paying customers.
4174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning announced on: February 06, 2012, 08:10:02 PM
EA is using every sleazy tactic they've got to make people desperate enough to use Origin. Don't give in. When you're downloading the game on Steam on release day, imagine that as your way of giving EA the proverbial finger.

Unless I'm entirely mistaken, that's not true at all. It'll still be PSN, but the user accounts will now be associated with the Sony brand instead of the Playstation brand to show that they are all interconnected. You'll still be buying your software through PSN as long as you're using a Playstation console of some kind.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning for the PS3. Already bought Resident Evil Revelations two weeks ago and finished it this weekend.
4177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil: Revelations on: February 04, 2012, 06:29:18 PM
I don't own the circle pad pro, and yet the game controls are fine. Whether you'll like the addon or not for this game depends on how you like the controls in RE4 and 5, I suspect. If you hated those controls, the circle pad pro is probably a good idea. If not, you won't have any issues without it.
4178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil: Revelations on: February 04, 2012, 05:13:16 PM
Aaaand it's done! Just finished the campaign mode, which took me 11 hours and 20 minutes according to the in-game clock. That's a nice size for a portable RE game, particularly when you add in Raid mode as well, which is going to keep me busy for some time still.

I have to say, it's one hell of a transition from RE5 to this when it comes to ammo. You always feel like you're just about to run out here, and if you don't it's a sure sign that the next enemy you meet is going to be a boss (of which there is a surprising amount). For the last 5 chapters or so I pretty much abandoned my handgun since I never had any ammo for it. It wasn't unusual for me to have to try out weapons I normally didn't use, simply because ammo was getting scarce for my favorites. Making every shot count is extremely important here.

Anyway, loved the game from start to finish. This is probably the most impressive 3DS title to date.

Hey, I know this is the internet where everybody loves to come off as morally superior to complete strangers but while you are feeling so awesome about what a wonderful person you are and totally above posting something as horrible as that gif keep the following in mind:

1.  The owner does not appear to be significantly harmed in any way other than possibly suffering a sprained wrist and/or bump to the head.
2.  The dog is clearly shown to be OK and capable of walking after the incident.

If the results had been different (say like the dog being sheared in two) or the outcome left to be far more ambiguous (such as the dog shown rising up the door and the clip ending before showing the dog to be OK) then I would not have posted it.

To me it's more about how an owners moment of inattentiveness caused what very nearly might have been a tragedy but in the end we can breath a sigh of relief that the neither the dog nor the owner were seriously injured (that we can tell though the evidence supports it).

But as long as you are comfortable up there on the high horse I'm cool with that too.

My post was intended to expand upon what was being shown in that GIF. The guy didn't sprain his wrist btw. As I said, he broke it and suffered a real shock as well when he didn't know what had happened to the dog. I don't find the animation particularly fun or funny, but it's at least fascinating and turned out reasonably well for everyone. I'm not sure if it's appropriate for this thread, but I'm not going to go there. Others have clearly shown what they think of my previous attempts at getting rid of pics that looked much worse than what you posted.

He does that once in a while. Rich Burlew has some kind of medical condition (which he refuses to elaborate upon) that makes it impossible for him to draw the comic for lengthy periods of time. It's nothing life-threatening, but it's something we fans have to just accept. Right now he's been going strong for about 2 months or so, with as much as 2-3 updates every week.

I've been thinking the same thing, but I guess it depends on the game. Also, if this works the same as the PSP you can download your games on a PS3 (if you have one) and store them there, then transfer and install them via wifi when you want to play them.

I don't care about the discounts on PSN downloads as it'll all be more expensive than buying on places like anyway (at least for someone living in Norway. The exchange rates are crazy these days). What I care about is being able to store the game on my Vita so I don't have to drag my games around physically. That's worth quite a bit to me. The price difference won't really ruin me anyway, considering the small list of games I'm planning on buying.

Speaking of which, the launch titles I'm considering getting are Uncharted (already ordered), Dungeon Hunter: Alliance and Super Stardust Delta.

For those who haven't got the books, this is your first opportunity in years to get every single one of them, even including Snips, Snaps and Dragon Tails, a limited book that will never be put up for regular sale. Some of the books have been out of print for ages, or only available in very limited supply.

As for myself, I own all the books already so there's not much for me to pay for in the Kickstarter that is of interest. At least I put in a $10 contribution, if nothing else.

Quote from: Caine on January 31, 2012, 08:11:29 PM

I loved the epic size of the maps you could make in the editor.  a buddy and I inadvertently picked the game up the same day it launched and played for weeks without saying anything.  when we finally talked we both geeked out about the same game.  we had tried to make an epic size map like a big jail break/infiltration mission but never got around to it.  the stealthy aspects really made small group tactics enjoyable and I loved the unit options they had.  shame that rts games really ignored all that in favor of mobs of ctrl groups marching across the map. 

Dark Reign really did a lot of clever stuff that should have been part of modern RTS-games but which isn't. One example is splash damage. Many weapons dealt splash damage instead of just damaging one unit at a time. This punished large clusters of units in one place. There was also a large difference between how effective certain units were against other units, making it important to keep your forces diverse so that you wouldn't be punished by a force specially built to take out yours. Base defenses were also very strong, which meant it was hard to take over an enemy base with pure force.

The result was that a huge tank rush could fizzle and die against just a few turrets, while a small, dedicated task force of half a dozen specialized units could destroy an entire base if played smart. Flanking maneuvers were hugely effective, and scouts were absolutely vital if you were to attack a strong position.

The rep mentioned streaming games and an upcoming emulator to allow PSP games to be played.

That reminds me, I wasn't paying that much attention ... what format do games come in? Are they like DS games?

They come on some kind of proprietary memory stick. Not quite like DS games, in other words, but not too dissimilar either.

I was late to the party on Dark Reign 2 -never played the 1st- but I really enjoyed it and despite playing it 5 years after its release I thought it held up well. Since I've been quite happy playing Halo Wars, End War and Red Alert 3 with a 360 controller, I'll definitely give this remake of the 1st a whirl. If this does indeed start a trend for forgotten PC franchises, I'll be happy about that.

Dark Reign 2 never really interested me. It has very little in common with the first game.

I didn't just enjoy it. I loved it! I believe Dark Reign may be the best traditional RTS ever made, to a large degree because of its sophistication. It did things even modern RTS games don't attempt for one reason or another. It was a game that truly rewarded intelligent strategy and tactics instead of memorization of build orders and tank rushing.

It always frustrated me that Total Annihilation got all the attention at the time. In my eyes it was a vastly inferior game that caught the public's eye mostly because it had a gazillion units and pretty graphics.

I'm almost sold on this thing. Stuff like Diablo-like loot and a responsive combat system intrigues me. My problems are with the setting, the story, and the art design. I can't stand elf fetishism and haphazard use of flashy magic just because, R. A. Salvatore doesn't impress me as an author (I tried reading the first Drizzt novel but had to force myself to finish it because it was so horribly bad), and WoW graphics these days just turn me off. Hopefully all that stuff can be relegated to the background while the gameplay stays front and center. Am I right, or does the setting and story try to force themselves at you?

At least they sell this game on Steam.

So, sell me on this game. What I've seen so far of the game hasn't exactly impressed me. The graphics look dull and derivative (it was good art direction with WoW. This is just a copycat as far as I can see, and many years too late), and the setting seems quite a bit too high fantasy (edging towards the Stupid Fantasy genre of my own devising), but I'm a sucker for RPGs with depth in character progression and tons of content. I'm also growing slightly tired of Claudia Black's voice, which they used for the preview I watched.

Why should I care about this game? What does it offer that other RPGs available to me don't?
4199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resident Evil: Revelations on: January 27, 2012, 10:31:10 PM
More impressions!

I defeated my first boss today. Holy shit, that was intense! I had been really stocking up on ammo and weapons for a while, and started feeling invincible. Should have known better. One boss fight later and I was out of nearly everything. Just a few rounds left in the chamber, and no grenades or other fun equipment. Time to feel vulnerable again, I guess. Tongue

After you finish the first three episodes on any difficulty, you unlock the first 7 Raid missions in the game. These are sort of like Mercenaries mode, but not quite. Raid sends you through one of the maps in the game, telling you to reach the end. I don't know if you have to kill all enemies, but I think so. You meet appropriate enemies for the locale, and as a neat novelty they actually have a health bar like in an RPG. Killing them seems to always net you some loot, mostly more ammo. There's other loot spread across the place, such as ammo and upgrade parts.

There seems to be some randomness to the way the missions work, though I haven't played any of them twice yet. I noticed some enemies had a little icon next to their health bar. One had a small fist, which I assume meant it would deal more damage if it hit me. Another had a symbol that made it faster, which is a real troublesome thing when your ability to move is hampered (yet the controls are more flexible than in other RE games, allowing you to do stuff like move in all directions, though slowly, while shooting). You may stumble across locked doors, which means that one of the enemies in the area has the key and needs to be killed. It may be the last enemy, or it may not. Haven't played enough to be sure.

When you complete missions you are showered with loot. My first mission netted me a magnum and a weapon upgrade, while my second got me two new pistols and more upgrades. You are rated according to several factors, such as time spent in the mission, weapon accuracy and damage. This earns you points, with more points being earned for better scores, and bonus points awarded for achieving certain feats (killing all enemies in the mission, for example). You also gain levels from completing missions. I'm not quite sure what they do yet, apart from letting you use weapons with level requirements. One of my pistols requires level 4, but since I'm level 3 I can't equip it at the moment. A shame too, because it was the one that seemed to fit my playstyle the most. Gives me incentive to keep playing. smile

You choose your weapon loadout and their upgrades before a mission. You can carry 3 weapons at a time (maybe this can be upgraded later. I don't know), 4 green herbs, 4 grenades, etc. Ammo spent during a mission is permanently spent. To get it back you must either find new ammo during a mission or purchase a full clip at premium cost in the store. The store is fun and contains a crapload of stuff. It seems to contain a random assortment of things at any time, so you never quite know what you'll find. Some of these items cost points, while others costs coins (as in, the coins you earn from walking around with your 3DS). Here you can purchase new weapons, restock ammo (price depends on the ammo. Filling up your pistol ammo is relatively cheap, while filling up your magnum is hideously expensive), purchase upgrades, and so on.

The upgrades work the same way as in the campaign. Each weapon has a certain amount of upgrade slots. I've seen anything from 1 to 4 slots so far, but I don't doubt there are weapons with more (or maybe even less). You can freely add or remove upgrades from a weapon between missions, so you don't permanently spend them. These upgrades vary quite a lot, with some being more useful for multiplayer than singleplayer and vice-versa. Examples include bonuses to damage and fire rate, chances to stun enemies, aggro reduction (yup, Raid has an aggro mechanic for multiplayer), increased clip size, bigger hitboxes on enemies, and so on. Choosing what to use and on what weapon can be hard, and I've barely even got anything to use yet!

You can also pick and choose from an assortment of characters, each with their own abilities. The three characters I have so far each has two abilities that give 200% reload speed for certain weapons, so the character you choose this early on depends on what weapon loadout you prefer. I picked the guy who gives 200% reload speed for pistols and shotguns for now. You can clearly unlock more characters over time, as well as new costumes for them. You can also adjust their level, though I'm not sure for what purpose.

You also have something called Missions, which are kind of like trophies/achievements that give you something when you accomplish them. There are separate ones for the campaign and for Raid mode, and they can vary wildly. For example, to unlock Raid mode at all you need to complete a mission that requires you to finish the first 3 episodes at Casual difficulty or higher. In the campaign, completing a mission can give you anything from an extra healing herb (useful!) to new weapons, upgrades or costumes. In Raid mode, missions can give you bonus points, new items, new characters, new costumes, etc.

Remember Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D? Raid mode in RE: Revelations has more content than that entire game, and that's not even including the campaign! There seems to be 20 missions, each with several difficulty levels (that you must unlock through play). Add to that the fact that I never really liked Mercenaries (it feels like you have to practice for a long time to achieve even basic successes) but feel like Raid is really fun. It was hard to put away the game today, but my eyes are starting to hurt from the 3D.

If you've got any questions about the game, feel free to ask. I can at least make an effort to ease the waiting time for you people across the pond. smile
