  1. It aged so badly that to this day its one of the best third person rpgs, probably second only to gothic 1&2.

    Gameplay video looked dope! I legit thought they were gonna attempt to streamline it but that melee-jank is not fooling anyone :lol: I'm actually amped to play this shit.

    Yeah, God forbid joining a faction would make you an enemy of someone. Also, I just can't stand when the game doesn't allow me to do all quests on a single playthrough. I'm sick of all the RPG grandpas and their choice & consequence bullshit.

    Agree, no one gives a shit about Caja. That filthy peasant! Nasty is our girl.

    Who ever he is, he deserves a punch in the face for sounding terrible.

    PS: Also, Jax having a goblin looking son is super annoying.

    Well, they did streamline it, that odd combo system is completely gone. Just sad that there have been absolutely no changes to ranged weapons, their animation still looks bad.

    Will this game also have monsters that stand idle 15 meters from settlements?

    The answer to this question is probably the same as "Will this game give every enemy a ranged attack even if it doesn't make sense because the AI is poor?"

    Oh, damn I wasn't aware of the removal of the combo system. I never used it personally but it sucks having shit removed for peeps that may have. Eh, most things seem to be intact on paper if you enjoyed the first and from what we've seen it looks more or less the same. Which is what I wanted personally, more ELEX, as I clocked in and loved every second of the hundreds of hours I put into the first. Hopefully the worst that can happen is that it just wont be as good as the first game was but still decent, if it sucks then ah well, my disappointment receptor is dull by now and I'd just do another run of the first =D. I've heard that they've made some other improvements too, like enemies stamina actually works now and other shit like companions not being immortal. We'll see tho.

    The voice.

    But I think I'm wrong. Went through all the Metal Gear voice actors, and nobody sounded like him. I recognize his voice but can't place it. So annoying.

    And good riddance too! That means they figuratively aim away from the concept of the many open world soulle-- Ubisoft games. I be happy.

    Hmm, they use the word "fact" for something that can be often judged as a subjective thing. If this is what you mean, I follow. And I agree that a blatant lack of distinguishing is always a bit alarming.

    Elex 2 is in the making for four years, you know what other game was being developed for four years? Gothic 3! And we all saw how well it went.

    ELEX 2 recycles the map of ELEX 1, you know what other game recycled the map of its predecessor? Gothic 2! And we all saw how well it went.

    Wait it's the same map and it's still taking them so long to release it? Something smells fishy.

    It's not the same map. 'Recycle' means they use the old map, but with changes and addition of new areas.

    Half is new, half is taken from ELEX 1.
    ELEX 2 map will be around the same size as ELEX 1 map.
    They also recycled assets like monsters from ELEX 1.
