  1. Console's don't really relate to the PC experience which is what serenity is complaining about. That's my point. You buy bottles not jugs. Maybe if you milked the cow it'd be in a jug. You obviously missed the bit about there not being anything about Steam on the box (actually there was but it was covered by a sticker). So to get back to the milk scenario, the milk brand has always been associated with chocolate milk, so you expect that when you see that brand. Now IF this bottle of milk is labelled in such a way as to show it's not chocolate milk, it only says milk looks white etc, th
  2. Renting's only available for consoles. And we'll have to agree to disagree about DS3 being a great game. I think I'll hold my hopes for Skyrim, which sounds like Elder Scrolls meets DS, maybe. Either or will be fine, just not DS3. Your example would be better if you said bought a jug (??? and where do you get jugs from???) of milk then discovered you couldn't drink it without a straw. Then once you went and got the straw you need but don't want you discover it's not dairy milk it's soy milk. Okay you can't request a refund that it's soy not dairy, the product merely claims to be milk
  3. If it's advertised falsely - no notice about needing internet, or there was a sticker that precluded reading the requirements then it's not buyer beware. Of course if you bought it from EB Games you could just take it back. One advantage of their returns policy
  4. No idea where this score comes from but at present it's #22 on Steam's top 100 played game list. Sounds good but if you check the stats it's only doing about 3x better than Oblivion which is a much older game and only just beating Duke Nukem which is a stinker of a game - rated 3.5 (BAD) by GameSpot! The real test of its quality, as aside from how much money it'll make, is how long it'll get played for. Rank | Current Players | Peak Today | Game #1 | 19,902 |24,657 | Team Fortress 2 #4 | 12,352 | 15,597 | Sid Meier's Civilization V #14
  5. Say what? Monsters do respawn in DS2. It's only DS1 they don't. Passive skills weere actually of significant benefit in DS2. You can also get all the unique items in DS2.
  6. Here's the bulletpoint review from http://au.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/dungeon-sieg...y%3Bread-review The Good Smooth flow of loot keeps you pressing forward Your choices steer certain story elements Simple but entertaining combat for up to four players. The Bad A fraction of the length of previous Dungeon Siege games Absurd co-op limitations The camera can be a pain Controls and interface aren't tailored properly for the PC. 6.0\10 - Fair: Games that earn 6-range ratings have certain good qualities but significant problems as well. These games may well be worth playing,
  7. DS1\DS2 and most games you stay 'balanced' with the enemy because as the game progresses linearly and as you level up you encounter tougher foes (who provide more XP). Oblivion etc, is one of the few games I'm aware of with levelling foes and I hadn't heard of it for DS3. Then again everything else is changing so why not this?
  8. Mouse and keyboard are the basic PC control whereas controllers are for consoles. Sure if you're into driving games you get a steering wheel, or a joystick for flight games but a console style controller for a computer?!?!? Where do you see those? I remember having a gamepad back in the days of DOS or something but that's eons ago. I can't recall having seen one since. I admit I don't go PC shopping very often but joysticks and steering kits are common, console controllers for PC's aren't.
  9. Seems like really strange poll results. Two thirds of people, as of posting this at least, say they want to buy the game but an equal number when asked whether they'll cancel their pre-order are saying they will. How can people love a game but still want to cancel their order?!?!? Don't you either love OR hate something?
  10. Okay I'm resurrecting an old thread here. Topeira, have you considered Skyrim - Elder Scrolls V? I'm not sure how I stumbled over it, though I'm enjoying Oblivion just at present. It's an FPS style RPG (FPRPG?) so does the whole WASD thing. From what I've read Skyrim should have DS style health\mana, complex magic and weapons (split left and right hand usage), selectable DS2 style perks etc. Oh yeah, sounds like active blocking too if you want the whole grr me smash melee route. Might have to wait a while though - it's not scheduled 'til 11/11/11
  11. DS vanilla was probably easier but that's easily tweaked. I don't think you can have more focus on combat than DS. The difference is how it works. DS1 controls what attack you perfom and who you perform it on. DS3 seems to be more controlling each punch you throw and where you throw it. One characters not the big issue. That's just solo-multiplayer. Nerfed abilities\spell casting is an issue. Retreat and regen's just an alternative to die-respawn strategies. It has the positive you can have a break get a coffee (or whatever you drink) and give your hands\wrists a break. Tactics strate
  12. I thought the defensive mode (3rd stance) allowed regen? Am I mistaken? If it's only health then that only helps melee\ranged units, well in DS1\DS2 it would. No idea about this.
