20.05.2013 @ 19:18I just finally downloaded the EE because of this!
I couldn't get myself to play this gorgeous game anymore, because the bad mobility and the rolling took too much enjoyment from the game for me. Now Flash makes the game I had always expected it to be and I'm so much looking forward to properly play it. If it doesn't crash on me every five minutes again like it did two years ago.
I am not in the least afraid of a god mode, I just think that Flash removed the annoyances of the game.
17.04.2013 @ 12:59And today we celebrate our first anniversary!
Time really flies, it feels like just a short while ago that we said 'yes' to each other.
Also, I only got my new ID only a week ago. But that's because I decided to finally take care of that one wrong letter in my first name and had that changed (you have to go through the courts here to do that and they work veeery slowly). We're stumbling through the good times and the less good times (the latter mostly health related), but we're doing the stumbling together and that's what counts. (<- I'm the lovely lady on the left, of course)
And now we already look forward to the next Witcher game we can play together. And possibly mod... I think we forgot to mention one quite important little detail about our very first contact. Because it was actually our respective mods that we made contact over. Or more precisely, I contacted Kindo with a question about his mod and a little while later he admitted to being all star-struck about me, the author of the White Wolf mod. Imagine that, ha! How silly.
Anyway, just wanted to keep you all posted and informed that we're still here; I'm a bit forum-lazy myself, but when something important happens, the hubby keeps me apprised. So no bad-mouthing behind my back, 'kay?

Hmmm... except that it's not Triss, but some nameless Playboy girl.
I actually think the first Witcher's sex-card motives were better, objectifying for the collection notwithstanding.
But I agree that it's a almost a crime to only sell that in Poland! We should start a petition, hehe.

Glaroug said:Dark Souls combat is slow, but---I say this with extreme hesitance as I've never fought anyone with a sword or other medieval weapon--it feels more "realistic". Everything is taken into account, weight, range and so on.
Right, I forgot that last night in my half asleep state; the gravity 10x is actual gravity, which makes for a more realistic combat than any other game I've ever played. Every weapon has their own unique animation, speed and range. Depends on your play-style. A lightly armoured rouge-type will be very effectively backstabbing with fast daggers, while a more cautious character might favour an estoc that they can use to poke while still holding the shield up. There's also bows and three different kinds of spell casting. If you actually want to use one of the great swords, you'll have to invest most your souls in strength - and if you wear heavy armour to go with that, it weighs you down. That might be the "too much gravity"-feeling the OP described. Quite realistic. But the possibilities to choose equipment and fighting style are very varied, everyone can find something that suits them. Though not in the sense that it makes the game not hard.
Dang, now I want to play Dark Souls. Or Demon Souls, as the atmosphere is even better...
12.04.2013 @ 01:55I played (and finished) both Demon Souls and Dark Souls and I can't agree at all with complaints about "unresponsive controls". I've had a lot of problems with "geriatric Geralt" in TW2, though, sadly. The combat of the souls games is quite hard to master and I'm far from a good souls player. But it is always logical and predictable. I died a lot, I cursed a lot, true. But TW2 actually made me sad, because the responsiveness was inconsistent and unpredictable, which frustrated me a lot and took away a lot of the enjoyment of a game I wanted to love completely (looking very much forward to the more polished TW3).
About the graphics... well, it's console graphics and they didn't redo them for the pc, which I found a bit cheap. But they are really not that important, because the atmosphere is so very gripping and dense. Not something one can explain to another, who isn't susceptible to it at all. And there's tons of lore in the game, a different kind of storytelling, as guipit already mentioned.
Just had to add my 2ct in defence of a game that is pretty amazing and addictive when you let it be.
