    It would seem the freezing I talked about earlier is caused by using M&K control scheme. They said they will hotfix it. I guess I can connect my xbox360 controller and play with that from now on.

    Pretty cool game, outside of being too easy so far. The PC sounds like the english dub of Geralt, is he played by the same actor?

    I actually know some folks on the dev team (they're Bulgarian). Bros try real hard, cut 'em slack. Also, Tropico is fun.

    So, I activated some hexes, in some circumstances I had 3 out of 5 hexes on. Haven't died yet, I'm in the second major map. And I'm not a good player, I remember dying a lot in Torchlight 2 and Diablo 3. The game is too easy, but it's really fun.

    It could have a bit more variety of enemies, though...

    I've been playing it a bit, lv 17 right now. Its pretty fun, I bought it on impulse cause it look like Van Helsing that I also liked. Was pretty lulzy when I heard Geralt in the intro. "we, the demon hunters.." lel

    At start the game gives you 3 choices of controlling it, WASD+mouse, controller or mouse only ala PC ARPGs. I tried playing Van Helsing with the controller once and it sucked so I opted for the mouse only config.
    Works good so far, jump with space and you dodge by pressing D+mouse direction.

    Weapon choices are fun, and it forced me to change it up a bit from time to time. Some of the map challenges require you to activate the hexes to complete them and it can get pretty rough.
    One of the nice fights I had was the end fight vs elementals where you shoot one and 3 more spawn with the increased movement for enemies hex activated. There were like a 100 of em at the end bombarding you with rocks.
    Couldnt to shit with the shotgun or melee so I switched to electricity gun that does some nice AoE damage with its extra abilities.
    Since i got the hexes I got the last one always activated, it makes some weaker enemies into champion versions that also get extra abilities.
    Hex that make em harder to kill is just pure bullshit, tho.

    So, ye I like it. Its not really a RPG, leveling up doesnt really give you anything to customize, no char sheet or skill trees, its more of a fun action romp with some nice touches like Destiny cards, challenges, etc.

    To be honest I think the thread should be moved to GG. I gave it a short go yesterday after buying it and it seemed like a fun little action game, but the RPG elements are really minor.

    Are the people complaining about the difficulty level playing on normal or hard? Atleast after the tutorial it seemed alright on hard, had to dodge hits 'n shit a lot. No health regeneration either. I've heard the game doesn't have any kind of death penalties though, which is a real bummer.

    Hoping I'll get some co-op action going on later today, seemed like a great game for that sort of thing.

    Not to shabby of a rogue, although they could have done even more with jumping and dodging. Rapier with life leech feels a bit op. Like the music.

    I don't think they should be compared as there aren't much similarities other than both having a vampire hunter as the protagonist. Victor Vran is a lot more action focused with very little RPG elements. Still, I'd say I'm enjoying Victor more than I did Van Helsing so far, after about 3 hours of game time.

    So, I finished the game in about 14 hours, doing most of the optional stuff.

    It's nice that is doesn't drag too much as most games of the genre do, especially in late game. But they could wait to introduce some weapon abilities or even dodging (as it is too easy until mid game) later to keep things fresh. RPG stuff are minor, it's pure action game, but a solid one.

    After the main campaign there are some eilite challenges in each area, but I didn't bother checking them.

    Solid 7/10, not in IGN kind of way that means that the game sucks. It's nice, good for casual summer gaming sessions.

    I got bored through 2/3 of the game and went to play Path of Exile instead.

    Bad ass! I'm actually surprised though...I thought the game was great but it didn't appear it did all that well based off of looking at the Steam sales/player charts.
