I doubt anyone does, but if there are any Pokemon players out there with Black/White/B2/W2 there is an event going on at Gamestop in the US, EB Games in Canada and a bunch of random ass places in Europe giving out shiny Dialga, and in the coming weeks Palkia and Giratina.

Exactly, now I just want it even more.

Well don't blame me if you end up hating it =P It seems to be the kind of game that you have to take the rough with smooth (the rough being user-unfriendly, unbalance and laughable characters and poor localisation, apparently, although I guess the latter wouldn't be an issue for you if you play it in the native French language, which I assume is best).

I'm interested: Would you recommend this or the original with mods? I get the feeling that this is mainly for people who think modding is too complicated or Ipad users. Is that the case? Although, tbf, I'd totally get this on ipad.


Eh... it's the same game, more-or-less, just slightly improved in some aspects. The only bigger change is the somewhat improved enemy AI. The extra quests and companions are nowhere near good enough to tag it with a "must have". Get it if you're not tired of going through the game again.

Has anyone played E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy? It seems like the best worst game ever, or worst best game ever, or something like that.


Yes. It's rough, it's unpolished, there's virtually no info to help smooth the learning curve, balance between powers/abilities is next to non-existent and a metric shit load of other grievances. So many of them, in fact, that I kinda gave up after a couple of hours despite everyone claiming it's a diamond in the dirt. In my case, it was more like a diamond buried beneath a couple tons of rubble. I might pick it back up someday, though I doubt it. The good stuff simply does not outweigh the bad.

I saw the 15-minute video that's what sold me in the first place. I can't really explain why, but I feel like I'd love a game like this.
I don't know if I could handle a video game in French though. I've done movies and (very short) books, but a game is something else, especially if it already is user-unfriendly. Playing it in French would likely make it even less accessible...

What am I saying, I'm totally gonna play it French.

Yeah, extra credits did a thing on it ages back and it's pretty entertaining. The 32 player co-op is awesome. Broken as fuck, but entertaining. I never finished it because the bugginess got a bit too much, but what I did was fantastic.

Played about 20 minutes last night. It's definitely unintuitive, and I died twice in the first bit of the game before even reaching the hub (went for a really low END build though; went for for high Accuracy, Hacking and Medical), and the translation is clearly well under par. Definitely interesting though. I love the massive scope of the environments and art style and the shooting mechanics seem solid with some nice gunplay. I had to whack the enemies ability to see you right down to the minimum though as they can literally spot you from miles away, but even on the lowest setting I'm not sure it's enough. Apparently cloaking on this is a must. The reticule thing is also really annoying as it's entirely dependent on where your cursor is at the time, so selecting the option you want from it often means huge sweeps of the mouse. Assuming these are all idiosyncrasies I'll learn to deal with, though the inability to stealth effectively might kill my enjoyment of it pretty quick.

Eugh, constantly respawning enemies too. Yeah, I think all the things I really want out of a game like this are simply not viable. I'll push on and play it conventionally and see if it improves when I get cloaking.

I'm playing shadow of mordor along with Samurai Warriors 4. The nemsis in Shadow of mordor is fun and everything alright but I'm loving samurai warriors 4 but I've been a fan of the warriors franchise.

Kind of enjoying Cybermancy now. Turning down the respawn rate helps, and I guess I've kind of accepted that it's not going to be a pure stealth game; given up with light armour and gone for medium as I was dying too often. The cloaking is at least useful for lining sights up with snipers without getting your head blown off so there's that. The game isn't anywhere near as complex as it initially appears to be (unfortunately I guess). Worth watching half an hour of a tutorial on Youtube just to explain what a few things are.

Just bought the Gothic franchise for $5 (75% off) off Steam. Has anyone played the first one? I'm reading up on it and seeing many 'one of the best RPGs ever' accolades.

I've always disagreed with this. It simply has far too many rough edges to be considered one of the best. You know how those who hate on Oblivion/Skyrim/Fallout 3 call them "hiking simulators"? Well, they ain't got shit on the first Gothic. You'll be doing so much walking back-and-forth (with nothing interesting happening) your actual feet will start to hurt. The combat is absolutely dreadful, possibly one of the worst I've encountered. Melee, ranged, magic, they all feel equally wonky and terrible. The difficulty curve is bonkers, you'll be dying in a single hit from almost anything remotely tough early on and then you'll laugh at end-game enemies when you get the best armor, when their attacks remove roughly 0.5% of your Health per hit or often nothing at all. Et cetera.

That said, the one thing it absolutely nails is the world-building, which pretty much every open-world RPG (or what passes for one) can learn from. No scaling, so you better watch what you do and especially where you go, no hand-holding so don't piss off anyone important, cool factions with interesting lore and characters, fun ways to screw around and solve quests in a way the designers didn't quite predict and similar stuff. Oh, and also some fairly decent voice-acting, specially given the release date and budget.

serbian scrutiny


Ye i'm about three hours in and I have mixed feelings. The movement, camera, animations, combat, lock picking mechanic, looting and overall controls are awful. Holding ctrl for every action? Are you kidding me? I tried changing it but it just ruins the rest of the bindings. Making you choose a faction at the beginning of the game is pretty nifty and I enjoy the unusual voice acting. I learned about no scaling the hard way. No open world game should have scaling enemies and i'm glad Witcher 3 is taking this route. Hiking is fine if the world is well designed which the three games you mentioned + Gothic aren't (at least so far). It just seems a lack of resources prevented the complete fulfillment of their ambitions. However i'm extremely curious to see if the qualities can supersede the faults because Vampire Bloodlines, Deus Ex, The Witcher, Deadly Premonition and Stalker SoC are all heavily burdened by issues yet they're my 5 favourite games.
