    Anyone know if they're gonna do anything about those spell animations? I was hoping they'd use the ones from Risen 3 cause they looked so nice.

    I have issues with my eyesight. When I saw ELEX, my eyes were healed. This game is not an RPG, this is simply ELEX. It does not belong to any one genre. It can heal you, it can entertain you, if you do not treat it well, it will hurt you. One does not simply gain the favor of ELEX. To get the favor of ELEX, you need to believe in ELEX. You can not enjoy ELEX if you do not fully understand ELEX.

    After another heart attack and long hospitalization my grandfather couldn't even walk nor eat by himself. After couple of days in agony he said "I'm tired of this, I want to die now". I've told him ELEX release date is October 17 and ELEX 2 has been already announced. Last time I spoke with my mother, she said he is now training twice a day doing rounds on the staircase.

    Well, judging by current industry parameters, anything "decent" is easily game of the year. W3, which is prolly the best game in last 10 years, would be far less praised and successful if there was anything on remotely same level as it :/

    As such, yeah a decent game would be fucking god damn good.

    Well the Witcher 3 have some shitty gameplay outside of gwent,but its level design and writing is top notch.Novigrad and the city from Blood and wine are amazingly well crafted and lively.

    Well you could argue that most loved rpgs on the codex have/had shitty game play.In Torment the combat was shit,in Vampire it wasn't much better,Arcanum was pretty bugy and broken,Morrowind have diceroll combat.I would say that when it comes to RPGs,the gameplay is the thing that could ignored if the rest worth playing.

    It's an open world game with typical open world environments you've seen from Oblivion to Gothic.. only with better graphics and more population than said games. I enjoyed the game (I haven't played the DLC yet, maybe in a few years when I replay) but there was absolutely NOTHING in the levels that stood out.

    Please post screenshots of this ground-breaking level design from Witcher 3, which the fans keep praising.

    Not really in the open landscape, but the cities I found much better designed than cities in most other comparable games. They just really seemed... natural. The way the houses were not simply placed next to each other, paths are not straight but narrow and crooked. And of course the larger population going about their business (which IS part of the level design as that is more than just geometry).

    Of course, once ELEX is out, I will cancel all of my citicenships and simply live the rest of my life LARPing a citizen of the dome.
