Topics I've Started
01.12.2013 @ 11:56After reading this article at Eurogamer, I'm surprised (amazed, flabbergasted, aghast) about the following section, where Konrad Tomaszkiewicz states the following about TW2's and TW3' combat:
QuoteGame director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz loves Dark Souls and Demon's Souls and has finished both a number of times. He likes how "you are stronger because you as the player learn how to control your character and how to play to kill these monsters". You stop thinking about how to do something and feel the fight instead. "And this is a really great thing," he believes.
"We tried in The Witcher 2 to make this high difficulty level but it was a mistake," he admitted, "because we tried to mix two different games." The Witcher fans wanted a traditional RPG with a story, not a challenge based on their dexterity.
"Dark Souls influenced me very much because I love games like this, but I understand after The Witcher 2 that we should less experiment on stuff like this but more focus on the things which people love in our games," he said.
The learning curve in The Witcher 3 will be "proper", then - not like the much lamented learning curve in The Witcher 2. There will be difficulty levels in The Witcher 3, but unlike The Witcher 2, Normal won't feel like Hard. "It wasn't a good decision," Tomaszkiewicz added. "Right now we're changing it and I believe that everyone will go in this world very smooth and we will not get problems like it was in The Witcher 2."
Right. As I stated above, I'm dumbfounded. Where did he get the notion that Witcher fans didn't like TW2's combat system and difficulty level? Don't get me wrong, I also liked the more indirect combat in TW1, where you just chained you attacks by clicking in time.
But TW2 offers so much more possibilities to get into the combat system, learn its intricacies and then kick some monster ass with the proper tactics. It's just more rewarding. Also the popularity of dark and insane difficulty levels indicates that a lot of players of TW2 enjoyed the challenge imposed by the more action-oriented combat.
So I hope I'm not overreacting or something, but I just hope that TW3's combat will not feel like a dumbed down / nerfed version of TW2, but still gives me a challenging combat experience. Your thoughts?

It's darth-vader-no-button-time. The situation could hardly be more dire (direr? ^^).
My hope for KotOR III by Obsidian - dead.
Instead I expect to see annually updated star wars battlefront titles from now to the end of time.
Or more MMO-garbage like the old republic.
And yes, I am exaggerating, but I can't be bothered to keep rational when EA is involved
Edit: I just saw that this has already been postet by Glaroug in the Hairy Bear-thread.

Star Wars, Disney and EA. Things that make my mouth pucker. When I read this I feel a sense of

Here's the first teaser "video":
I already constructed an explanation how the LP and the crackling sound fit perfectly in the fallout universe, but then Bethesda destroyed my theory with their official statement.
And a second teaser:

Plus, Bioware San Francisco is rumored to have been closed down.
So, what do we make of it? I've created this poll to gather the opinions in this forum. />
27.02.2013 @ 16:36Good news, everyone ^^
Square Enix has secured the rights to the title "Deus Ex: Human Defiance". So it seems we can look forward to another Deus Ex, which will probably start on next gen consoles and hopefully also on the pc.
If it holds the standard set by Human revolution, I'll be more than content.
