    So, since you kids have now played it, how are the rpg elements? Good like in Arcanum, or almost non-existent like in the other console games you kids like?

    That explains a lot. I hear French historians at universities are as skilled as their Swedish counterparts, who recently discovered that Viking warriors were actually Muslim women.

    In fact, one of the reasons he developed the game was because he believed it was ‘historically accurate’ to not have any non-white characters anywhere, which is provably false given that medieval life was a melting pot of different races.
    The Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies published a paper on it, on how pointless it was to compare modern concepts of race to medieval notions of ethnicity.

    Wait, you have 50 FPS on a 1080 with all options low or just with shaders and lightning low?

    Bc if the former then you should return your disguised Chinese Voodoo3DfX and demand a real 1080.

    They're pretty good. Seems like most of the choice revolves around HOW you complete things, ala Deus Ex style. But with additional RPG elements added in. There's also a lot of the game you'll likely end up missing. But the whole "THE WORLD GOES ON WITHOUT YOU" narrative seems a bit overblown so far. Still hardly into the game but just my observation thus far.

    Ex. Need to get something from person A.
    Options:
    1. Persuade A to give you item
    -------------a. Bribe A to give you item.
    -------------b. Threaten A to give you item.
    2. Break into A's home to steal item
    3. Kill A, take key, take item
    4. Pickpocket A, take key, take item.
    ------------a. Wait for A to get drunk for easier pickpocketing
    ------------b. Poison A for easier pickpocketing

    My not particularly great rig is getting 40-50fps on a mix of high/very highish settings. That's playable for me.

    There is a bit of jankiness but hey, that's CRPGs for you. The down to earth historical aesthetic is fantastic, and the writing is done nicely as well in the tutorial intro - no over the top bullshit, just a blacksmith's son who throws manure at the fucking Deutsch.

    Looks like it'll take me a little time to get the hang of combat, learning the signals. At the start couldn't make heads of tails of it and the drunk fuck kept doing judo moves on me.

    Why are there so many named NPCs if every single one of them says the same damn thing, just put them in the bin with the same generic title ''Town Folk, Citizen'' and all that crap so I don't have to suffer through the loading dialogue screen hoping they would say something interesting or give me a quest. It's messing with my brain knowing that If I won't talk with these characters I'm going to miss quests but it's also a huge time waster, makes me sick!

    This game is practically a schoolbook in Medieval society history. Very impressive.

    There are games like Ys Origin which create emergency back-up saves on crashes and allow you to pick up where you left off immediately after starting the game again despite the game also mainly relying on save points. I'd find it hard to believe that the game worked fine on their PC for all these bugs to remain in the release version, and if you can't fix everything, you could at the very least implement an emergency save system of some sort to alleviate the pain of losing progress because of a technical issue.

    Sounds like a janky piece of shit to me, LOLOL with all these apologist SHILLS, it's not everyone's fault that you like janky AmeriSHIT! [Insert gif of that rare bug that appears if you go out specifically looking for it to show that the game is indeed shit and at the same time indicate the cleverness and wit of the poster]

    Guise, important question so listen up you dumb fucks. How does Youtube works?

    I left a comment on the ACG video through my dummy account, it got upvoted, ended up as one of the top comments. But then I added something unflattering about the ACG dude and now I can only see that comment while I'm logged in my dummy account. If I log into any other account or log out completely it's not there.

    Do any of you run a Youtube channel? Is "shadow banning" a thing?

    I have 50-75 fps generally (i5 4460, gtx970, 8gb ram) on high settings, but unfortunately every now and again the game just freezes for a few seconds, often repeatedly. Did not happen during the horse chase fortunately, but eh.
    Seems to have no obvious cause either, no options (even object distance) make any difference there. I can't tell if it's culling or streaming related or what.

    Combat has combos you can learn to cause specific actions like a pommel strike or getting around the opponent's guard. Sadly I find the directional stuff awkward here because your sword is not pointed towards the enemy unless you are trying to thrust... So instead of easily seeing the sword pointed slightly to the left of the enemy for a cut from that direction or whatever, you have to either watch the annoying directional crosshair thing (stupid as I'm trying to keep tabs on the foe's weapon) or look to the side of the screen where your sword is. Both you and opponents usually leave yourself way open to attack with the way the weapon and body is positioned. You'll be in kissing distance of the other guy and he's doing some weird guard or whatever that puts his weapon way out to the side where you and your weapon is not :D

    Oh well. Make sure to check your char menu to select perks as you level up your various aspects... You get perk points.

    And I remember seeing comments from people elsewhere who could not figure out how to eat... The U.I. tells you in the inventory (at the bottom left iirc) what to press to do whatever actions you can do with the item you have selected. Eating something requires a short hold of the "e" button on pc, so I guess morons were just tapping it instead.


    So far interesting game, but I'll have to figure out how to fix the random short freezing that I get. Basically frames go from 72 to zero for no apparent reason.

    In a ruined house west of Rattay, near where you have to set up bird traps for the nightingales quest.

    Interesting - it appears you can dress as a soldier in a stronghold with probably a 50-80 men guard, and you won't be recognized as an impostor by other guardsmen. They simply pass you buy. I guess a Hitman-like cover system is too much to ask for, but it looks funny.

    Actually, the reviews seem fine, according to Metacritic. There are few shit reviews they have taken into account for their metacritic score.

    Skills are increased the more you use them, similar to Elder Scrolls games, but better. Get into a few fist fights and see "hand to hand improved" pop up on the screen. The game also has a Base character level that acts more as a tracker of progress than an actual character progression. However in addition to that there are certain traits you can get once you improve your skill to a certain level. For example improve your Charisma to level 2 and you can unlock a trait called "Manly Odor", improves your talking to the ladies by a certain percentage but lowers your stealth.The game does a really good job pairing positives with negatives in the trait tree, encouraging specialized gameplay and preventing you from just being good at everything.

    Equipment makes sense and you dress in layers. Wear plate without a Gambeson underneath, and you take more damage. Plate is worse vs. Piercing, ect. Equipment isn't hard to find per se, but isn't easy either. Most bandits you kill will have something, but after a few it's not exactly an upgrade. Things also suffer wear and tear and get dirty so frequent baths and clothe washings is a thing.

    The system is somewhat complex though, your conspicuousness matters a lot, not just your disguise... If you have a low level of that, people just kind of ignore you even if they see you unless you do something to really draw attention to yourself and there's perks for it as well.
    Otherwise you may have to have your face covered if you wear armor/colors for infiltration purposes.
    And there's other stuff that influences it as well iirc. Haven't really tried it myself though.
