    :lol:

    But hey, this has NOTHING to do with the smear campaign by journos against the game or the low metascores (and the gap with player score). 65 for the PS4 version, btw. PC user score is 82. :lol:

    EDIT:

    Holy fuck. :lol:

    I saw it today but thought "what's there to comment on?", how kotaku have taken every opportunity to shit on the game with articles about bugs and what patches it's getting, but have not reviewed it, and in their only "impressions" piece they carefully avoid praising the game, reviewing its features in a neutral tone, then spend a few paragraphs to talk about bugs, and in the end the reviewer concludes, as if subjectively that this kind of game isn't "his thing". I guess it's not the same "thing", without Bethesda's marketing budget buying your steaks! :D

    Well, the guy is clearly a Witcher 3 fan. I played that game at release and it was AWFUL. The "original" controls made Geralt run like a WW1 tank. Absolutely disgusting. But since it's a big release faggot journos will cut some slack, but KCD gets shat on.

    I guess the problem was that the house was considered private, even though the quest demanded I go there an talk to him. So he started moving around an complaining, while the cutscene triggered at the same time.

    I tried reading the polygon review but the outright factual lies and presenting of opinion as fact was too much. What a rag!

    Nah polygon shat on Witcher 3 as well eventhough it was reviewed by someone else. In fact Witcher 3 is fucking amazing eventhough for different reasons than KCD (and is definitely less ambitious game design-wise) and the cuntfucks and polygon just hate great central european RPGs because central europeans don't give a fuck about their shitty political agendas and diversiy identity politics moronics.

    Btw, you're active at Resetera right? What's the general vibe about the game over there? Still a lot of talk about Pepe being literally Hitler or are people discussing mainly the game? And do they like it? Can't be arsed to go through all the stupid comments over there.

    Not sure why it's crashing for me, but I after I changed overall graphic settings from low to high crashes went from one every ten minutes to one maybe every few hours. Playable, now, at least.

    My impressions so far are good. Reactivity seems very good, though I've not really explored beyond the "introduction". They've definitely nailed the atmosphere and story-cutscenes. The world feels great, and moving around in it is pretty awesome. I'm glad the world is smaller than most ridiculous open worlds, and also glad it doesn't seem to be filled with shit (figuratively); if you go roaming out in the countryside odds are you won't find anything but a pretty sight (or something to hunt for food, perhaps).

    It's awesome that training with Robbard actually seems to make you way better with a sword--it pays off (learning combos, advanced combat techniques, etc.) and makes sense story-wise for young blacksmith's son Henry to not know any of these things until trained by a better swordsman. It's gonna feel pretty good to perfect block/riposte -> combo the German or the bandit. System seems to reward player skill, and also practice. Though I imagine it won't be quite as great in non 1v1 situations, but... large scale battles like that are not as pristine and simple as a duel by nature, so I don't mind in theory.

    Paid off my debt to Theresa's fucking uncle by beating up some bums in the medieval fight club and stealing their money. Figured I owed him for the medicine, but wasn't gonna let him use that to get me into dirty business--it's cool that you could actually say "I paid my debt, you can't hold it over my head to do anything."

    My next goal is to finish all the training I can do with a sword, save up enough money for a horse, and then ride to Uzhitz for two reasons: 1) to learn to read, and 2) to level up my drinking skill. The cornerstones of a great knight: martial prowess, intelligence, and booze.

    W3 only became playable to me after Patch 1.07 (introduction of the "alternative" controls). That happened like a month after release. KCD is currently playable (tho buggy af). I know games should work right off the box, but that's not the world we live in 2018.

    Some of them clearly do, as evidenced by the oh-so-ironical hissy fit ITT. We're just lucky they are not the ones calling the shots (Jesus be praised!).

    No, if it is going to be like Spellforce 3, which received about 20 patches in the first month. :D I think sometimes 2 in the same day. Meaning it's going to be a pain in the ass hunting for all the patches without automatic updating.

    Anyone done the 'Lost in Translation' quest? Not sure if there was a bug or a weird trigger.

    Show Spoiler
    Figured out the trick, had the guy lead me to the right spot, got the money, let him go.... I walk a little bit and find a couple of enemy combatants, one of them runs to god knows where, another attacks me and I kill him - he's a bandit, but the moment I off him, I fail the objective to return half the cash to the miller and thus the quest?

    Loving this fast travel system. Reminds me of Daggerfall where it costs time and money and things can happen to you on the road, except far more things can happen in this game. I was assaulted by a guy in a bush with a wooden stick who I killed in 2 strikes, then a guy who had his mother force him to LARP as a knight asked me to duel even though he knew he was terrible at it.

    Killing that little brat was how I got my first breastplate. I felt bad about it, but his gear was too good to let him live.

    Spamming links to that 'Gamergate' interview seems to be a pretty common tactic at the moment, but can be a bit amusing when it falls flat +M

    Vavra talked about bugs yesterday. They weren't aware of most bugs people are encountering and posting on Youtube. Apparently there's only so much your 10 people strong QA department can do. Vavra said the Ubisoft QA is bigger than the entire Warhorse.

    So they thought they're pushing out a product that's mostly smooth but when hundreds of thousands of people started playing all sort of glitches started popping up.

    Anyway I'm never bothered with how a game looks like on release, especially if it's an RPG. I don't remember the last time I played this sort of game right after the launch. I played Elex a bit, loved it but temporarily shelved it and I'm STILL waiting for the second patch. Due to my autism my first playthrough always has to be perfect.

    I think their next game should be set in feudal japan era. The one afterwards should then be ancient greece (around 500BC with spartans and stuff), or maybe Rome.

    EDIT: no one wants to see feudal japan kingdom come??

    I really liked Elex, at least until the very end. It was a solid 7.5 out of 10 RPG for me, maybe even higher if we’re grading on a curve because last year was not so great for the genre.

    Kingdom Come is better. Possibly a lot better, especially once you get through the prologue. There’s less explicit choice and consequence and no jetpack, but other than that I think it’s superior across the board. Only 20 odd hours in, though.

    In terms of performance, it runs like a dream on my GTX 970 and I’ve had only one real bug so far.

    It wouldn’t make my GOAT list, but it’s really excellent nonetheless. I’d say GOTY candidate but there’s a lot of potentially great stuff coming out this year so we’ll see.

    well, it’s different.

    it’s different from any rpg you played.
    is basically a sub genre apart.

    i suppose that people expect “fantasy minus magic” but is not that, is not even a mount and blade style game, it’s history-game.

    So for this reason you have to know history for really appreciate certain element of the game, or live in a place that have strong connection with that part of medieval history.

    I suppose that the big part of copies of the game are sold in europe.
