I play Red Dead Redemption 2. Perfect, this game is just perfect. Graphically beautiful, a soundtrack to die for, a captivating scenario, one of the most successful open world to date, ...

Then you find a sexy energy weapon and not only does it require a stat it theoretically doesn't scale off of, it requires a huge investment into it.

 

 

IIRC weapon damage doesn't scale with stats in Elex, so there is that. It's one of the reasons I tend to advocate a jack-of-trades approach in it that I'd never do for say Gothic 2.

 

I'm not 100% sure of that, but if it does scale it's minor.

The tooltip for Dex in Elex says it affects ranged weapon damage but I have no scientific data to actually back up that claim.

Played Project Warlock, fun little retro shooter with a bunch of issues, I'm hoping future patches eventually fix the lighting (maps are way too dark unless you turn down the graphics quality) of the maps and the wonky performance.

Is it bad that, besides depth, Red Dead Redemption 2 has more detailed townspeep routine than any rpg as well?

 

Gothic had this back in 2001.

 

And Ultima even earlier.

Weird ... quests in Abessa are being cancelled if I teleport anywhere, but remain active as long as I just travel by foot.

Yeah, the tool tips say that str scales melee damage and dex scales ranged damage. I only tested strength and melee weapons rather than ranged and dex but if damage does scale with strength it was very, very slight and far less than the improvement from combos or an improved weapon's raw damage increase. I'm about 99% sure someone else tested the same thing at the Codex and came up with it not having any effect either.

 

I preordered so it may have been a bug that has since been fixed, but if so it doesn't seem to be in the fix log.
