Is anyone else kind of excited for this? I didn't realize how much of a true roleplaying game this is trying to be. I thought it was going to be basically on rails but I've been watching a bit of dev diarys and the amount of freedom in how you can do things seems refreshing.

AI does things on its own similar to what Oblivion attempted. Apparently NPCs can be murdered by random events, even while you're asleep. You could be in the middle of a mission and decide to just leave and go do something else, and the game won't wait up. Say you were going to help siege a fort with a group of people, you could show up late and annoy them, or not show up at all and leave them to fight on their own.

You can rob houses, disguise yourself as different factions, be a pacifist. I'm trying to not watch too much gameplay and just go into it without a lot of hype. It might be not be the best game but I love what they're going for and theyre getting my money.

check it out if you're into this kind of thing...7 more days til release

I played the beta a bunch of months back because I backed this on KIckstarter

First off, the sword play is interesting but really fucking frustrating and un-intuitive. It uses a dial system for direction of attacks and combos and while it is pretty satisfying to pull off, it was a huge pain in the ass to get a hang of. I understand they are going for full realism when it comes to sword fights and that's admirable, but it seemed that by going 100mph in the direction of Realismville they forgot to get gas at Funtown.
The game was beautiful and had a unique style going for it by being a period-piece, but man at least in the beta the world itself was boring as fuck. There isn't much to do and the few quests I was able to play were so devoid of fun that it just felt like a slog
The dialogue was painfully bad, the inventory system is confusing, and the animations of the NPC's were extremely wooden.

This is the ARMA of medieval games. I'm sure there's a market for that. But I sure am not a customer.

The beta definitely looks bad, but the game has changed pretty drastically since beta. That beta came out around 2 years ago if I remember correctly. I actually was completely going to pass on this game based on what I had seen, and then realized the recent dev diarys are looking pretty good.

So far it's pretty clunky and some of the voice acting is awkward, but I gotta be honest I'm really enjoying it and I'm about 4 hours in.

For some reason I'm actually interested in the story so far. Normally these RPGs lose me and I zone out during cutscenes.

Definitely not going to be everyones cup of tea, it's very lacking in ways that AAA titles are strong, but has nice little details that you don't often see in bigger titles. Also pretty tough to run, I have a lot of settings turned down but it still looks nice.

Yeah, that's my biggest gripe with the game. I got stuttering and random FPS drops, and my computer sounds like a plane taking off. And my rig isn't a potato exactly. Hopefully they'll optimize things as the patches rolls out.

But beyond that, and the jankyness of it all, it's a damn gem we're talking about here. You can roleplay and immerse yourself like there's no outside world anymore.

Also this game has a beautiful world map, so there's that.

Too late, I've already devirginized myself. I don't have time for that shit

Although I will say, I think the writing is a bit bland but otherwise this feels like something I'd be playing all day everyday for like a month if I didn't have anything else to do. I extremely dig the grounded, down-to-earth feel, the simulation/survival elements (especially quality and cleanliness of your clothes affecting your charisma), and all the cool aesthetic touches in the map and UI. Reminds me weirdly of like a Witcher/Mount & Blade crossover in a lot of ways. Plus I think I'm still in the prologue so I'm sure it'll keep opening up.

But right now I can't keep repeating the same twenty minutes because I'm still terrible at the combat and/or obsessive-compulsive

I for one am happy this game is being received positively because I am 10 hours in and I am really enjoying it, and my GOTY so far.
The story is surprisingly captivating, I am super intrigued by the politics and world building of the game and I dig the main character and his story arc a lot. Voice acting is quite good too, by most everyone in the cast.
It's immersive as fuck, and you will find yourself lost in a world hundreds of years in the past relatively easily. I haven't found myself truly immersed like this by a game in years, and it feels great to get off work and just throw myself in the 1400's like I found a time machine. It's really fun and really easy to actually roleplay in Kingdom Come as doing things like eating, sleeping, and being well rested are game mechanics and not just things that autists do.
Combat. Oh boy. This is where the game shines. You can't just start the game and start killing knights. You will get your shit kicked in. You have to practice, because the combat system is as realistic as sword combat has ever come in a video game. It's something that will take time to get good at, and A LOT of time to master.

It's a solid 9/10 from me, and Im happy I backed it on kickstarter all those years back. It has its fair share of bugs, similar to other huge open world games, but it feels like a combination of The Witcher series/Skyrim/and Mount and Blade
Truly a gem people

This game, man. Alchemy is an actual activity/game and not just a static table your character performs animations at. Your speech skill increases simply by talking, and not just on speech checks. You have to launder your clothes regularly, or high-status people will look down upon you.

I wouldn’t say I beat him. I thought I was beating him, until I noticed that his attacks couldn’t hurt me. I thought I was just good at dodging. Turned out his swings literally did 0 damage to me. And when his health reached 0, he just kept swinging. It was a waste of 15 minutes.

Don't worry. As long as you don't try to sell/repair it you should be safe. The guards pat you down rarely anyways.

On that note, I just spent over an hour identifying bird songs to trap some escaped nightingales. Before I turned that quest in however, I thought it would be a good idea to get some equipment repaired. Turned out that the shopkeeper recognized the gambeson I wanted repaired as stolen, and called the guards. And just like that, my last hours in the game was forfeit, cause fuck if I'm going to spend time in jail or the pillory.

This fucking priest, man. The quest related to him is the best I've seen in an RPG for years, if ever. It actually beats Witcher level goodness. If only the priest of my childhood church was like him, I'd still be a Christian.

Without spoiling too much, through that quest I leveled up my Drinking skill twice, and now has a perk that allows me to tolerate beer 50% better.
I mean, the fact that the game has a drinking skill sounds silly at first, but the execution is fucking genius. The skill's perks can give you buffs like better archery when inebriated, which means you can actually make a viable alcoholic-build in this game.

Considering how alcohol was handled culturally in the past, it really makes sense in a historical game like this one too. Some European countries had laws requiring farmers to brew a certain amount each year, and often alcoholic drinks were the safest source of water you could get thanks to brewing/distilling.

>>714648

And yeah, on the topic of skills, the reading skill my dudes. Once you learn to read, the words in books will become eligible but not properly spelled. As you increase the reading skill, the words becomes spelled more and more correctly. Your speed and efficiency at learning from books also increases, and skill books are paramount mid-late game.

Barry Burton is right. This game is getting hate because of kids expecting AAA andl Skyrim without magic.

It's not.

It is a great af historical game, with a grounded plot and believable gameplay. It's a slow burner, for example one of the early quests makes you go out to hunt with the local lord heir. I spent almost two hours hunting rabbits in the woods before the game told me to go back to camp.


Not for everyone. This game is its own thing, it tries to be as grounded as possible. The comparisons usually made makes it no justice.

I mean there were actually pretty extensive ties between Europe and north/east Africa and central Asia even during the middle ages. Plus, racial categories didn't really harden until the 17th/18th century, and there have been Christian communities in Africa for as long as there have been Christians, so it's not like it'd be patently absurd to see or be aware of non-whites in this setting. Obviously not a large, permanently established community, but a small trade diaspora in a larger city? a merchant or two? sure.

To be clear I quite like the game and really couldn't care less when like 90% of fantasy games don't have Black people, just saying. A lot of people on either side are very passionate about their ahistorical/ideological preconceptions.

That "criticism" was also directed at the witcher 3 when it came out, and like Bohemia, I can't imagine Poland was all that diverse way back then.

On topic, this game looks like it's right up my alley, I love some of the ideas it has as far as tying your level-up and stats to actual gameplay (like the whole illiteracy thing and how you have to dump points into reading to be able to read books), and from what you guys and some others have been saying it sounds pretty damn good. Unfortunately I tried torrenting it and playing on my laptop but it's a bit too old to run it at a playable framerate. This also doesn't seem like the kinds game you wanna play on a console, at best it's probably a slog with ridiculous loading rimes, so I'm probably gonna be awhile before I play this.

Mind you, there were black people on south and west european courts. KCD takes place in central europe/east europe. The garbage dump of europe. So there weren't any black people there.

Besides, you can't just have a black farmer in west europe. Black europeans in medieval/renaissance times were either nobility themselves (typically displaced christian nobility after a muslim invasion - almost all current muslim areas in africa used to be christian), or were members of the court through skill and novelty. Which was a big reason for electing black people in your court, showed you had contacts all over the world to other courts.

Wow...this game. Just wow. Had gotten about 6 hours in before and then didn't play for a few days. Just put 8 hours in today.

It's really hard to explain why this game is so good, it's all these little things that sort of fall into place around 7 hours in and you go wow...this is fucking brilliant.

Yeah, it's strange how it sort of clicks in your head after a few hours. Suddenly, taking a stroll through the woods and opportunistically hunting is a cool activity in itself, unlike in action focused games like Skyrim were the woods are an obstacle to rush past on the way to the next quest marker.

one thing i started to do in skyrim that really improved my experience, is every time a npc is like "meet me over at spookybad cave" and starts running in that direction, instead of fast-travelling like a bitch, i actually run my ass there with the npc, fighting random mobs along the way. its much more satisfying and immersive to journey with them instead of just teleporting to the dungeon

Pretty much sums it up. I probably played for about 12 hours today, it was fucking great. Yeah, it's janky as hell technically, but holy shit it's a good game. This is the first time in awhile that I've felt really connected to a story in a videogame, and it's not even that crazy deep or anything, the world building is just so grounded and well focused that it just fucking works. Great voice acting, good animation, interesting characters and stories that drive them, it all adds up to an extremely immersive experience. It's sort of like when I first played Skyrim except it feels real in a way (probably because it's more grounded in history than fantasy). Instead of a bunch of different magic to learn you can skill up in every day shit like drinking alcohol or hunting if you're feeling productive. The combat system is great (read: I suck at it but I love it). The speech options are a fun addition, think FO:NV sort of, I've had one interaction where my first aid skill opened up a dialogue option other than the main 3 (speech, diplomacy/noblism(?)/violence).

The performance issues are obvious, but I haven't had many issues other than the framerate and run-of-the-mill AI running into walls shit. For those who didn't figure it out you have to press and hold E to initiate pickpocketing, use S or D to scroll through your options while your time runs out, hit E to select what you're stealing, and then scroll back up to the top and hit E again to end the mini game That and lockpicking are still fucking with me hard so far, I broke multiple pick on an easy lock earlier. Maybe it's easier with a controller but holy shit is it janky with a mouse and keyboard.

I really hope people support this game. For all of its flaws, this is was a shining example of what games can be.

I ran into a man near a field who asked me if I cared to engage in an honorable duel, with a wager on who would win. We walked out to the field l (he chased me sword drawn) and began our duel.

The fight was insanely tense, he was a skilled swordsman. He had much better armor but i was outlanding him 5 to 1. I had recently learned a master riposte from a good friend. I was going to beat him. Suddenly he lands a big blow and then lowers his weapon.

"Hahah, good fight sir. You have lost though, pay up"

>My honor is at stake, we fight to the death faggot

>slash him in the face
>he tries to return the favor, and I parry and master riposte him
>he falls to his knees and begs for mercy
>I chop him in the head again, he falls to his back
>stab him through the torso, incapacitating him, and remove my share of the wager from his pockets
>carry his body what felt like a mile out into the wilderness, have to keep stopping for breaks because I am wounded
>bring his suit of armor to an armorer and have him repair the damage

I'd love to see other games made with this system in other settings, like ancient Greece or Rome, or Japan or China, or renaissance France, the Crusades, Vikings, any time and place that was sufficiently swordy.

Hey, is there sea travel or ships in this? That could be something for an update, allow you to beat the shit out of people of all lands, and most importantly, beat the shit out of pirates.

And are there any plans for multiplayer? Jousting could be such a thing.

I can't wait for high-end graphics mods like they did for Skyrim.

If people want black characters they could write Moors in, that's how they got all the black actors into The Sword And The Sorcerer.

mainly because my controllers are a few years old and the response is low so it just doesn't register at all half the time.

I'm at around 26 hours or so and I haven't even discovered all the towns and I'm barely into the main story. I have temporarily retired my sword and am spending my days reading books by day and pickpocketing drunkards at night for money to buy food. I'm getting pretty good at pick pocketing. And my reading skills have earned me some cool perks.

You will very easily get 60 hours if you like to immerse yourself and enjoy the little details. The combat is actually quite interesting, it seems too clunky when you suck at it but it's actually pretty intense when you get the hang of it.

I can't imagine playing it on console though, the thought of using a controller sounds bad and the performance must be rough.

I think it's pretty realistic. You can release the arrow at any draw point and there is no aiming assistance (the crosshair disappears when you pull out your bow), so it can be tough to hit a moving enemy, but that makes it even more satisfying when you do. I'm not sure if a headshot would one-shot-kill any enemy, but I do know that enemies will charge you if you try to kite them and shit.

So KCD prides itself on realism... what's the range on bow-and-arrow? Because they should basically be like shotguns. Good to close a distance, but certainly not a sniper rifle. Bows get absurdly inaccurate beyond a certain range (determined by your muscle strength and expertise). Just look at Olympic archers. They're the BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST and even they shoot pretty close to the targets.

Because bows aren't really solo-weapons, they're designed to be used together with your 200 other bow friends with bows.

Reliably accurate up to around 10-15m if you're somewhat skilled I guess. I guess if you git good that range can increase considerably, but I've noticed that wind can fuck up the trajectory at range.

However, this really depends on your level in archery as below lvl5 your hand shakes a lot when keeping the bow drawn.

I played the game for like 11 hours. One thing to know going into it is that you're locked into a linear tutorial-zone for like the first 3 hours and then after that everything opens up and becomes an open-world game (which I found very refreshing that this studio had the balls to do that). A lot of people have said that they've ran into bugs in the game, but I for the most part never have. One bug I did run into however was that when I went to talk to a NPC, the screen faded to black and I got stuck in an infinite loading screen.

The world is pretty beautiful (especially with all settings maxed out), however I don't think I'm going to finish this game. There just isn't enough interesting things to do outside of the main questline (which is really well written, and the primary NPC's dialogue is fairly well-voiced too).

I'd say wait 'till this game comes down to $40 or less before buying it, and hopefully some of the bugs and performance problems will be fixed by then too.

I've been practicing archery on and off for fifteen years. I currently use a 50#, 60inch wooden recurve bow designed for taking down full grown buck, and hitting a human sized target accurately from 15 meters is "easy." At that distance, and at the speed an arrow travels from a bow of that strength, wind is not something you have to account for.

The farthest I think I've shot from is 50 feet, and that's when I start having trouble making a decent grouping, and might even miss the target, but somebody better than me could land a shot twice that distance with little issue. Then again short bows and long bows don't ordinarily have as much draw as a recurve bow, so the arrows won't travel as fast.

Dude, you're hitting stationary targets in a chill environment. Killing people in a fight is completely different, nevermind the fact that even if you're a good shot and loosing arrows into unarmoured people, there's a good chance that person will survive your arrow (for long enough) to smash your head in.

And let's not forget that arrows are so slow, they can LITERALLY be sidestepped if you see them coming and have freedom of movement.

Depends how close you are. I'm not a scientist but I'd imagine by the time you see the arrow in flight you're probably pretty fucked.

Unless by see them coming you mean see the guy drawing the bow, in which case I suppose so, yeah.

An arrow from a 60# bow can travel at >200 FPS.
If you're 50 feet away, you have a quarter second to sidestep the arrow. That's not enough time to gauge where it's gonna go, let alone sidestep the arrow.

>even if you're a good shot and loosing arrows into unarmoured people, there's a good chance that person will survive your arrow (for long enough) to smash your head in.
In a fight between a guy with a 1.5 inch slit running through his chest cavity and/or heart and a guy who hasn't been shot with an arrow, I'll put my money on the second guy.

Are you retarded? That's the FPS of MODERN SPORT BOWS!
They use LIGHT ARROWS with LIGHT ARROWHEADS! Those arrows wouldn't even be able to kill a small dog.

Medieval warbows would travel around 130-170 FPS, and if you have some heavy duty armour busting arrowheads they become even slower.

Also, you can just check medieval statistics on how many people died directly from arrow wounds and almost all instant-deaths relating to arrows are arrows to the eye socket, nose or mouth. Soft targets without bone protection. And some guy with an arrow in his gut can still close the distance and rip YOUR guts out with a fucking axe.

Retard, even modern computers can barely run any modern game at over 60 fps, yet alone 150 fps. Wtf. Personally I've never seen that number in unmodded Morrowind even.

So if the arrow travels at even 150 fps, you're gonna have an issue with lag. Sorry but that's how it is.

Nah, I got 200 FPS from google, and I haven't tested the speed of arrows from my 55# recurve, but it takes <half a second to hit a target ~50 feet away using the same arrows I use for hunting so it seems accurate.
Medieval war bows were often >150# so even if their arrows are ~3 times heavier, they're going to be moving at ~same speed since they'll have ~3x the momentum imparted into them.

>Some passages of the Bible say much about the sexual behavior of the ancient Hebrews. The writings of the Greek and Roman physicians and of their satiric poets (Martial, Juvenal, Ovid) described diverse genital diseases. Celsus described various diseases of the genitals, that he called the "obscene parts". Galen made a strange description of the female genitals and coined the term gonorrhea - flow of semen. The ancient Chinese and Indian physicians also gave some account on the presence of venereal diseases in their books, and the temple sculptures depict their sexual life. During the Middle Ages, numerous physicians and surgeons from Europe as well as from Arabic countries wrote on local diseases of the genitals, describing chancres, condylomata, erosions, pustules, urethral and vaginal discharge, and their treatment. Some were aware that the alterations were connected with sexual activity.

It's kind of a moot point, since the region didn't have a martial tradition of high-skilled archery like England, and most of the bows would be of the point-and-shoot variety. but the game doesn't have crossbows. Whoops

Longbow use isn't skill mate. It's all about muscle. Not even in both arms. Just one arm. Your dominant arm. The whole advantage of longbows in shooting your arrow much further than with other types of bows so you're already at such a range that you cannot aim for specific targets, and just generally shoot towards your target and hope that one of your 200 archery buddies hits the target with pure luck.

You can actually recognize English longbowyers in graves because they have one massive dominant arm and a bent spine from using the longbow so much.

I really enjoyed the game at the start, and as a history buff (even tho I couldn't give less of a fuck about Bohemia tbh) I was _really_ looking forward to the game. However, the fucking loading times for absolutely everything makes the game almost unplayable. The game runs relatively good, even on this old steamer. I can run games like the Witcher and Skyrim Remastered on high, Warhammer Total War without any troubles.

However, I say relatively good because of the FUCKING loading times. And because a lot of dialogues end with people attacking you, I get this fucking unbelievable fps drop and loading time which fucks me over completely, more loading times, and like every 20 sec the game stops to load.

It doesn't look that great, so I'm surprised how badly it's running on my computer. Too bad, I guess the fault is more with my computer than anything else, but I don't really get why this game is so demanding..

i also found a pretty silly way of making good money. Meat "stolen" from animals in captivity, or basically any other stolen food loses its "stolen" status upon being cooked. I found a pig, chased it into a secluded nook where i commenced punching it to death. Then cooked and sold all the meat for a tidy amount

Apparently Cuman kills count as people kills too, though. It's just a bit of redundancy, sort of like how there's a tab there for "animals killed" and "sheep killed", when killing a sheep still increases both by 1. Even more confusing is "stealth kills" and "enemies killed by stealth"; anyone who has this game want to explain that one?

Still doesn't explain much in games made in modern days, other than that they'd have to make more models. You'd think they could scale the adult models down and remove some mass and be fine

Well, that's at least realistic.

The only thing someone in plate armour had to fear were maces, warhammers, polehammers, poleaxes. Then depending on the skill of the user, the point of longswords, spears and daggers could be dangerous too (jab them in the joints of the armour), and someone skilled with an axe can use the weight of the blade as a makeshift mace.
And on the subject of ranged weapons, the only thing dangerous to someone in plate were (small) cannons and shrapnel guns. Cannons because early guns and pistols didn't do shit against plate armour, and shrapnel guns because when someone shoots a fuckload of glass, gravel or sand in your face, it's pretty easy for someone to stab you in the joints.

On the other hand, one big problem with fighting in plate armour for long periods of time is the heat of your body getting trapped in your metal suit, and the difficulty of breathing and seeing through the visor. You can pull your visor up, but of course, that makes your face vulnerable. A shrapnel gun shot at you with the visor down is only a "temporary debuff" but with your visor up it could just make you blind forever.

There are some quest breaking bugs. I've run into two or three so far. All on side quests. One could be considered game breaking. PSA if you guys are doing the Robber Baron quest I don't know if they've fixed it yet so either hold off on it or look up the specific way to complete it without corrupting your save.

They each had a work around so I had to reload and do them again a certain way to complete them.

Other than that the bugs aren't that bad, and they will definitely be patched. By the time the game goes on sale I doubt you'll have to worry about any serious bugs.

The bugs in this game have finally broken me. Due to a save bug i just lost so much progress. I can't even count the hours lost. I died in combat and hit "continue" only to go back to a waaaaay earlier save. I went to go manually load because that couldn't be right, I thought. Only to see that all the saves I've made over the last three days are missing.

I'm not even mad. Just kind of numb. I quietly shut the game off and walked away.

So i just got this game today, I thought the game was far too slow in the beginning but now that the game has opened up a bit and the story has grown on me and combat has more depth, it's becoming pretty fun.

I still struggle with combat if I accidentally wander into a close range fight with more than one opponent but I think i'll get better or get better gear soon.

Also I had a main storyline bug that prevented progress and i had to reload once.

my advice early on with combat is stick them in the face with the pointy end. slash once or twice then poke the face. if you are using a sword that is they will die/surrender relatively quickly.
best tip is to train! train with captain bernard in rattay (or neuhof depending on which part of the quest you are on) you can fight him with any type of weapon and it not only teaches you how to play better but it gives skill points to warfare defense agility strength etc etc.

it seems they had to push a release, I'm not sure exactly why but supposedly we've only got like 1/4 of the game...we need act 3 plus all the side activities to be properly implemented, like fishing, fighting rings, armor crafting/repair (could be wrong about the crafting part) the game is great but I wish it was finished!!!!
I'll give all my quatloos for the full version

also my rant about peoples complaints!
>everyone complains about the save system like save points are a new thing and losing an hour or so of progress is the end of the world
wtf games have you been playing? Basically before ps3 games didn't have manual saves, they had save points.
>complains that the story isn't finished at the end of the game
how many games go on and on and on? god of war had part 1 and 2 on ps2, part 3 on ps3, not to retract anything from god of war it is a great game. but there are countless games that the story does not conclude in a single title.
>bugs/optimization complaints...
...niggas running cryengine on potatoes and they wonder why.

moral of the story, stop thinking every game is going to be the last game you'll ever need and just enjoy the experience as they are.

>wtf games have you been playing? Basically before ps3 games didn't have manual saves, they had save points.

PC RPG's have had manual saves since time immemorial. Baldur's Gate had it, Morrowind had it, Fallout had it. It's been an absolutely basic, bog standard feature for the last two decades (a millennia in game development years).

And their reason for not including it wasn't a technical issue anyway, as evidence by how there a day 1 mod for unlimited manual saves. Their reason for not having it as a feature was that they felt it would encourage people to savescum after bad decisions, which while true, should be something left to player discipline and not hard-coded, fucking especially when you know your game is so god damn buggy that shit is gonna break every 15 minutes.

I feel bad for anyone who bought this game on a console because playing this without the unlimited saving mod is like playing an Elder Scrolls game on release, with the ability to save only every couple IRL hours, having to lose tons of progress every time a quest essential NPC disappears or when the game just decides to up and crash. Any open world game with an ambitious scope like this needs manual saving and it was a foolish mistake on their part not to include it.

This is a good game but you can stop fanboying and acting like every flaw is it's strength; they fucked a number of things up, and that conclusion is backed up by the consensus of literally every review I've seen (both critic reviews as well as Steam review totals and Metacritic user review aggregates), who all consistently rate it around 7~ out of 10.

It's just another GPU compute market, and nVidia happens to be top dog in GPU compute at the moment.
It's a constant back and forth though between them and AMD's highest end cards in the scientific and machine learning space. AMD cards are actually quite a bit faster at floating point math but overall, a fundamental fact of computing is that speed is about how fast that shit can address memory.

Unfortunately nVidia is much better supported in Blender so I'm trapped on the green side of the fence for the moment.

Obsidian had a tested engine to work with when it comes to New Vegas. Bethesda was a well established firm when they made Fallout 3. And that one had some shit in it at launch, trust me.

Kingdom Come was made by a bunch of Czech guys who tried out Patreon.

And even then, honestly there's no major game-breaking bugs in their shit. I know of some that where fixed immediately by patches after launch, but I never saw them.

it's actually soiboi but kirt is a faggot and arbitrarily blocks phrases for whatever reason

soy supposedly makes you produce excess estrogen so calling someone a soiboy or soybitch is like saying they're a low-T nu-male

Has anyone got mods or makeovers they'd like to see?
I'd like a Highlander version, or the Crusades, or Robin Hood, or an Arthurian version, or Conan.
Are there any IPs that would work well? Thomas Covenant? Amber? Pern? Elric? Berserk? Battle Circle? The Sunset Warrior Cycle? Slaine?

game is shit.

There are no huge battles,
no sieges,
the combat is made for idiots (moving the camera when changing position of weapon, plays like a mix of a wii-controller and simon sez. Imagine the combat of For Honor just much worse!)
and a fanboyish community that condems free saving.

Dat classic Euro jank. Basically if you're going to make a game of this scope you're oging to need a giant QA team or a small group of some of the best of the best in the business to make sure that jank is found and solid repro steps are given to the dev team. Also it doesn't surprise me that a first-time studio found out during development that giant fucking battles in the actual game instead of vertical slices built for a trailer is really, really fucking hard to pull off.

Somewhat unrelated, but good god that second video started to give me AIDS after the 2 minute mark. I don't get how anyone whose balls have dropped can watch shit like that.

There's other games with huge medieval battles and sieges. That's not really what this game is about. Doesn't make it a shit game. The save thing is major bullshit but I'm sure that'll either get patched out or fixed with a mod, it's a relatively minor fix.

The combat isn't for everyone but it's a tried and true formula that a lot of people are familiar with. see Mount and Blade, War of the Roses, Chivalry etc. It feels wonky at first but it actually gives you a lot of control. I think it beats Elder Scroll style button mashing.

No arguments against it being a buggy mess at present but that'll hopefully get fixed.

and holy fuck is it pretty.

I've never played a game with as down-to-earth quests as this one. The grounded shit is this game's meat and bones ffs.

There's already several mods that fix this.

Heh yeah.
But they just did an over 5gb patch for it, this is no fire-and-forget game for the devs.



>and holy fuck is it pretty.

Yep. As a guy who enjoy hiking in the woods, no game comes close to how real the woods look like than this game. Even Witcher has shit to learn from this game.

If you're going to give this a try, torrent it first. I'm glad I did, because god damn the bugs suck in this game. So many are gamebreaking. I know open world games like this are hard to fully rid of bugs just because of the number of moving parts in the code, but it's honestly too rough right now.

The game really pulls you in at the start with the story and surprisingly strong characters and accompanying voice acting (overall, though some weak points on some of the minor characters like generic villagers/bandits). But it takes at least a few hours to get past the on-rails prologue portion, and after that's where you'll start noticing the more major bugs: at the point you're past the cutoff for a Steam refund.

In particular there's a bug going around where every new game created after 1.3 (or 1.3.1, technically) doesn't get random encounters, full stop. This bug is apparently only occasional for saves created prior patching to 1.3, but now it's 100%. I've heard people say you sometimes get bandits, but never wandering knights or non-combat encounters. I can confirm after fast traveling 20+ times for several in-game days from Rattay to Skalitz, that I didn't run into a single encounter, not even bandits. So that's like 20-30% of the emergent (non-quest related) gameplay gone right there.

tl;dr game's still broken as shit on 1.3.1, definitely don't drop $60 on it unless you don't mind substantial swaths of content being locked behind unavoidable/100% incidence rate bugs.

try it on the console, the bugs are much less prevalent than on steam.
also who pays $60 bucks for games anymore? even bestbuy will sell new games for $47.98

I'll probably wait till it drops to 30 or something. Seems like the kind of game you play the shit out of once and then have no reason to ever touch it again.
Kinda similiar to Elex, another eurojank game. Had a great time with it and it's got some decent replay because of the different playstyles and factions. But the prospect of spending at least 10 hours to even get started in that game just puts me off.

I don't have a PS4 or Xbone but 1) I can't imagine playing a game this buggy without the unlimited save mod, but 2) this specific bug (no encounters) is apparently across all platforms.

This game was great for a while, kinda lost interest mid to late game though. I might go back and finish it but to be honest a lot of the game is just traveling to different places and not much excitement, the story is good enough for that if that's what you like but for me it just got a little repetitive.

don't tell me prices don't go up due to demand? if so how do you explain the current inflation? is a gpu really worth 1200 bucks? sadly it will be well outdated before its barely comparable to tech in 2 years.

The devs have been pretty proactive about fixing bugs, but it still a little rough here and there. I haven't encountered any game breaking or crashing bugs since the first patch on PC.

I personally really like the game and while it is definitely flawed, they got a whole lot more right than wrong and there isn't really a game that's like this currently out. If it doesn't seem like it would be right up your alley, definitely wait for a price drop. I didn't mind spending $60 bucks, but I can totally see someone thinking that's way too much.

On a barely related note have some Iron Maiden:
