    I'd rather take more Shadowrun or Warhammer or what have you games than...silly crap like this. D:OS 1 was simply puke inducing. /pass

    Games don't get bombed for political reasons, do they? :)

    So many user reviews on Steam and Metacritic giving games 0s for things that have nothing to do with how the game plays. It's why I find the user scores mostly useless and tend to ignore them.

    I'm not saying that there aren't extraneous factors that may or may not influence whether I buy a game or not - there are. But that's one of the reasons I visit this and other forums: for those extra bits. But they have no place in a review.



    Yeah. I don't understand how someone can give sub 7 to the likes of D:OS. Do I like it? HELL NO! Fuck that game! But does it deserve any grade that is 5 or lower? Also, HELL NO! How can a person give 0 to the likes of WoW / Dark Souls etc is beyond me. That's simply not objective. Period.

    I am so very happy reading this. I absolutely loved the first game with all its flaws. The cheese seller and that guy who tries to trick you into having sex with him, their voices still occasionally still run through my head. My son who did not play the game was singing one of the vendor chants without realising it. 

    If you cannot get into the turn based combat or the way the game plays and looks I must say you're missing something really good and that's a pity. 

    Will be playing this as soon as I finish with my current stuff or else they will all be shoved aside in favour of this gorgeous game. 


    The first one played like a crap if you didn't do what they wanted you to do(use elemental crap 24 / 7 / 365). It also looked like crap and had a crappy cartoon like story with one of most irritating cast ever. Idk, maybe manga guys can bear it. Me? Fuck off. Ugh, what a dreadful game!

    If only GW 2 were just a tiny bit less silly(more of Prophecies / Nightfall, less of Eye tyvm!) and there was just a tiny modicum more reason to play(it feels pointless and quite childlike to me)...I mean combat wise, the game's quite fun and it has a LOT of potential...it's just pointless open world + childlike crap buries it all.


    I think it's the colorful UI and environments that give it a less weighty vibe.

    I enjoyed the darker atmosphere of, say, WAR, but I enjoy the focus on open world content, and I don't mind the lighter atmosphere of GW2's environments and UI.



    Well, the three things I don't like are:

    -> Ultra silly story(really, the antagonist is so forgettable that even Alduin leaves a better impression lol! With that said, can we please not cast animals and such as main antagonists?)
    -> Dialogue screen(yeah, that thing's HORRIBLE, beyond horrible even)
    -> Open World(there's something off putting about EVERYTHING being optional...almost like when everything's optional nothing's really important. It's...weird. Like nothing you do ever matters. Compound that with bad story and...yeah, no reason to play anymore)

    Extra mention: Water color-like colors. I really don't like how childlike it looks. It's more of a compounding effect than by itself. If it didn't have "...happily ever after" crapshoot story, I wouldn't probably notice it.

    But the combat, the customization, the dye system etc...A LOT of good things, but it all feels meaningless due to that evil triumvirate up there. It could be me and my affinity for Dark Fantasy and Guild Wars 1(I can directly compare them and I did many times...GW 2 doesn't stack well outside of some gameplay elements). Who knows?
