  1. I can see why you don't like it, but the cel-shading type graphics from Torchlight, Warcraft and Borderlands have really grown on me - mostly because it scales so well over time - even older games can look very good, as the resolution increases.


    The problem with traditional graphics are that they generally age really fast - making it hard to play games just 10-15 years old, as they UI scales horribly and models look pixelated.

  2. The weirdest thing for me at rest stops/gas stations in Europe, and I dunno how widespread this is, was putting money in a tray/dish or on the counter and not handing it directly to the cashier. I think out of a dozen or so stops maybe one person took the money that I handed them and they looked at me funny as they did it. But most people looked at me funny so that's neither here nor there.

    A central European concept, it's considered dirty/unsanitary to touch while exchanging cash. Due to the frequency of such exchanges.


    It's not so widespread in the north, but we dislike physical contact in all other context however :)

  3. All of my cloth stuff falls apart quickly. I know I can repair armor and weapons, but am I missing some sort of way to repair shoes, gloves, and jackets?


    I also need to find some better ways to make money. I'm broke all the time. At least I can read now, that was a neat way to handle that in game.


    The easiest way to make money is to kill bandits and sell their gear - you get missions from Robard later in the game, sorta like from Preston in Fallout 4.

    Make sure to repair swords/axes before you sell them, using the grindstone.


    Killing mercenaries (there's a few along the major roads), those that offer to fight for money - is both a good source of armor and items to sell.


    Or alternatively, to steal from the castles, there's usually noble clothes items worth 1-2K grochen in each of the master bedrooms. Around midgame I've accumulated +8000g via this route.


    The best armor and sword in the game is also free, if you know where to look



    If you go east of Rattay, almost to the edge of the map - there's a camp along the major road, where you'll find the best sword and armor in the game.1518660882_1.jpg





  4. It is really bothersome, specially when the game gives no actual help with training combos, other than the first one. Even then you have to figure out the timing for yourself and the cursor lighting up does not help since it is mostly off when it comes to everything.


    Yeah it needs some tweaking to be sure, but mostly just adequate feedback - you can still pull off combos even if enemies block your strikes (as long as it's not a riposte or perfect block).


    That should be conveyed to the player. And not only that, but most combos actually work withing the natural flow of combat, in that your sword automatically moves to the correct position, but this isn't conveyed either or even shown - so when you try to move the cursor to where you assume you have to be, you can easily mess up the combo.


    Not a great design, but to be honest I've actually enjoyed having to figure this out. :) Kinda how I assume actually learning to handle a sword would be.

  5. But the difference is I can rebuild my fleet and they can't. The next one will be decisive.


    You've racked up alot of 'awakening' points there however. I got completly annihilated in a similar game (pre 2.0) when the FE went on a holy crusade against me after the third skirmish.

  6. I don't really have a problem with the combat system in Kingdom Come, but I also can't remember any of the combos... and the ones I do remember I find very hard to execute.

    I couldn't figure them out at first. They never connected, were always blocked etc.


    But combos work best when the oppononent is tired, or in respons to you disrupting his. They're generally quite powerful as well, with a good combo stopping the fight in one way or another. So use them towards the end, after tiring them out. In time you learn how (and when) to execute them early and mid-combat.

  7. I'm glad to see that this new trend of 'losing is a part of the story' is taking hold in gaming. The focus on constant gratification, winning and 'fun' (ie players feeling in control) in the 00s and early 10s, really ruined a lot of good storytelling opportunities imo. No challenge, no investment.

  8. I changed a setting and was gifted with a 2 min loading screen, **** this unoptimized piece of ****.


    Edit: I changed the setting for this gamein Nvida GeoForce and it damn near crashed my computer. Seriously, **** this game.


    Sucks, perhaps you can get a refund and revisit after patches and a sale?


    Maybe a hardware issue. It seems fairly well optimized for my build luckily. Intel i7 and a gtx 1060 - I had a AMD before and always had problems with Crytek's engine. Stuttering, ctds etc

  9. I folded and bought it, even though I usually never buy games one day one - no bugs for me so far and it's one of the best games I've played in years! Takes me back to the early days of Baldurs Gate and the likes, with scribbled notes to keep track of the gameplay mechanics and quest.. The level of detail is awesome - as a historian with something of a fascination with the 15th century, it's almost like holodeck experience :D 


    Love the lack of handholding as well and very free approach to any quest.


    Did install the 'save whenever' mod, just to avoid CTDs and the likes - luckily no such things so far.
