    When ELEX released I had to leave my very first review on Steam since the service launced just because the game was so good.

    With this game, I will have to leave a review as well.

    DAMN this game is fun.

    I played and streamed it last night and enjoyed the hell out of it.

    I thought the cutscenes were great, the VO acting was awesome. The combat was a little clunky for me at first because it does require some tactical thought and skill, and I tend to button mash. Once I got used to it, I loved it.

    My only two minor quibbles for me:

    1. the load times... I will move this game to my SSD.
    2. the lock picking mini game with keyboard and mouse is tough for me. I feel like it's so tough I must be missing something.
    3. clothing seems to disintegrate almost overnight. By the end of doing my chores and boxing the drunkard Kunisch, my clothes looked like rags (which was also awesome). It actually reminded me of the 60 fps bug in Dark Souls 2 where equipment degraded twice as fast because of the framerate.

    Speaking of boxing the drunkard, once I figured out the unarmed boxing stuff, I wanted to keep beating Kunisch but he eventually went to sleep and I never saw him wake up again. I even loved the run home to mommy cutscene to get patched up after Kucinsh pounded my ass the first fight.


    Great atmosphere and great tension. It's hard to break decades of RPG habits where I walk in to NPC houses and steal anything that isn't nailed down. Walking into a private home in this game is likely to get you thrown in jail - and stealing, wow.

    This game is pure incline and anyone who says different is either a troll, or a potato with a crappy machine.

    Yeah, I even managed to fail the lockpicking tutorial, wasting all 5 lockpicks... Then I suddenly 'got it' and it became very, very easy. Haven't failed a lockpicking minigame in like 30 tries now, so at this point I've stopped buying them.

    Anyway, surprisingly decent game. My only real complaints are slow("cinematic") interactions with the game world, and kinda monotonous environment. Game does get much better after prolog though, and combat improves as you and your char does.

    On the hungry stuff:

    The day seems to go by really slowly - you can sometimes do 3-4 quests and related fast-travel in a day - and I never had a problem with food, so I'm wondering what the difference is. I am pretty much ignoring a lot of loot, leaving behind food on corpses and not bothering to loot/steal most things, and I often have dozens of apples and such in the inventory.

    And it seems like you can survive on a couple pieces of high-powered food items for an entire day, since you lose, what, 50 nourishment over 24 hours? It seems really easy to leave it topped up at 80-100.

    On the lockpicking stuff:

    I can now do Easy locks pretty well, but it takes a lot of getting used to, and I think if your default mouse sensitivity is too low/high then it might feel impossible. I just find the gold spot, and then memorise where my cursor should be in relation to the incomplete circle in the middle, and then try to follow that spot in a circular motion as I rotate.

    I think, like Alpha Protocol minigames, it comes down to mouse sensitivity & shitty controls layout, so Warhorse should be able to fix it soon.

    Oh yeah the clothes wear out rate is too harsh.

    But hunger is ok, I usually accidentally stuff myself like a pig and then I don't have to eat for the next 2 days. If your Henry is constantly hungry it's either a bug or just check the satiety stat on your character screen.

    I don't like the lockpicking much, I seem to remember it was a lot smoother in the beta. It's easy to break a lockpick even on Very Easy which brings the wrath of the guards on your ass AND wastes a lockpick which is not exactly cheap. A bit too brutal.

    I never even eat from inventory, I just eat whenever I see a nearby pot of food over a fire.

    This is my biggest pet peeve so far. I think it's pretty retarded that my armor is going to get fucked up because I got in a couple fist fights... I guess I can kind of envision someone pulling a pansy move and ripping my clothes but not an armored gambeson.

    To the people who are having freezing issues, are you using Windows 10? Since the last update a few days ago I had issues where frames would drop for a second or two and games would freeze.. This would happen regardless of the game and I noticed huge 100% cpu spikes... temps were fine but it would just have these spikes like it was trying to access system files repeatedly.. I deleted everything and reinstalled windows and havent had a problem.

    check for abnormal CPU spikes instead of just saying "my pc is fine because months ago I played all these listed games"

    So far I have completed keeping the peace and a few Milers quests. No road blocks so far but it is early times. I would not be surprised if I am forced to choose my allegiances at some point.

    Clothing is probably the biggest $ dump - so much so that it's probably better to go naked until you get in a tight spot, but I can't be arsed doing that.

    I'm sure like all games you end up with too much money, so I'm just spending on repairs and enjoying the artificial poverty.

    He has also said there that Josh Sawyer told him that if KCD was successful then Josh would leave Obsidian and start his own gaming company, lol.

    Anyone else not grabbing perks? I'm still early and don't want to pick something that will fuck me over in the long run.. The only perk I picked was to have +3 speech when talking to nobility and wealthy people because who wants to speak to fucking peasants?

    I am using Windows 10 and no real freezes. Every so often it might freeze when entering a zone in town but that lasts about .3 seconds and is gone.

    i5 4960k @ 4GHz
    20GB 1600Mhz DDR3
    OC R9 390X 8GB
    OCZ 530R/500W SSD
    Sharp Aquos 50" 4k UHD

    Strangely, the game runs faster @ 1440p than it does at 1080p for me. I play on Ultra and get 50+FPS in the countryside and +/-30FPS in towns. On very rare occasions I have seen it dip to as low as 20 but that is very rare.

    I am not certain the game is using all cores.

    thesheeep is experiencing an actual anomaly if he has such horrible performance on his rig and he has the game on SSD. If someone has this on a mechanical HDD then you get what you get.

    Did anyone else find a dead girl named Olena in the first village, at the crossroads before the alehouse?
    I'm not sure if it's a feature or a bug.

    LE: Seems to be a bug.

    Nah, I'm grabbing perks whenever I get a point. They're useful most of the time and either way it feels like developing the character as he would - naturally over time. Then again, I've never been a minmaxer.

    Some of the specialized perks give negative bonuses to other things though and I'm not sure if I want to go down that path yet.. Like I said I'm still early.. Only just became Sir Radzig's squire.

    I was thinking about the possibilities, when this turns out to be a success and there is one thing I would especially like to see. Most of you bros won't know what I'm talking about, but if someone made Sienkiewicz's The Trilogy into games... there isn't much I wouldn't give for a chance to play as Kmicic in The Deluge.

    My balls are so itchy to play the KCD, but im waiting for 1070 to decrease in price, or the new nvidia ampere/turing/volta will come and i will buy that shit. By the steam stats, the game seems like a nice success way better than some AAA games.

    I often don't see a lot of exciting perks that I'm dying to grab, especially the earlier ones (falling damage reduction, etc). But I also don't see a big need to hoard points, so if I see something, I grab it.

    In general, hardcore players hoard way, way more than is required - e.g. we all end upw ith 300 potions by endgame having used 10.

    I have a question about Choice and Consequences early in the game:

    Show Spoiler


    Early in the game, as you are running away from the castle to find a horse:

    There are three Cumans grabbing at Thersa as she tries to get into the house.

    If you don't run up and distract and or fight the soldiers, do they kill her?

    I hit one and she slipped into the house and barred the door.

    ...and of course she shows up with the reinforcements once Super Sized Jason Statham is about to kill you.

    ...and also, I was able to tell that one noble lady about hitting one with my sword. Also, can you seal the deal with that noble lady?

    Does it play out any differently?

    Has anyone been able to successfully kill one or a few of the soldiers when running away?
