Surprisingly quite. I thought this game would be getting a lot more attention on this board. Don't have the game yet or just avoiding it?

I've been hyped about this title for a couple of good months but games arrive in my country way late and I'm still waiting for it..

Yeah? Well, I'm still waiting for Betathesda to fix their shit with update 1.04 and if that doesn't work that I'll gladly trade this in. It's shameful to release a broken piece of trash, and I feel kinda bummed not only because I've spent actual money on it, but also for playing it.

From all the user impressions on GAF who already have the game, it's running great and all the bugs in the demo are non-existent.

Skyrim has a lot of bugs, yes, but the process of making a game this huge and involved will always involve a lot of problems; the fact that they even got a game like this running boggles my mind - it is honestly HUGE.

I won't agree with one word you said because you've got it completely backwards. I loathe consumerists who TEND to forgive a corporation because their product is so "complex". Skyrim is a broken mess on every platform it released and it's shameful that they, the devs,  swim in pools of cash right now, after releasing an unfinished good. What's more funny about this is that the problem existed way longer than Skyrim and not one person did a thing about it because ... I don't know why. Weird variables can be ironed out in QA, EVEN in such massive games Bugthesda seems to develop.
Also, there is no need to praise them for getting a game this huge to run. Making it to run with minimal bugs would have been an acomplishment, but in it's current state, it's meh.
Take Just Cause 2 for example. It has a much bigger world than Skyrim, has the same amount of filler content, looks twice as better and way smoother in the framerate department.

I can rant all day on the matter but earning cash to pay some dudes who lie about the parity of the console ports, and not giving the so-called journalists all the review versions makes me feel rather sick.

Shame on most of you dudes for not bringing this topic on the first page.

I think it is going to catch a lot of folks off guard by how good it will actually turn out. So happy to have another great new IP to look forward to amongst the sea of sequels.
Anyway, there's a demo coming out on the 17th for all platforms (360,Ps3,Pc) and it will have a cross-promotion with Mass Effect 3. More about that here: http://forums.reckoning.amalur.com/showthread.php?1871-Kingdoms-of-Amalur-Reckoning-Demo-FAQ

The demo will feature the tutorial dungeon + 45 minutes outside gameplay.

So i've finished a grand total of 2 main story quests, I just can't get bored of this game. I've come across one bug which was the murder in windhelm, it's fixable by following the markers even if you worked out the killer. I remember I 1st signed on here when replaying oblivion goty on ps3 and running into vampire glitch, hopefully no killer glitches like this exist.

Brace yourself for the worst of your fears, if you play on PS3.

just watched a few videos and it was a painful reminder that most gamers are males -_- they wont be winning me over anytime soon with character designs like that. sindel, the ninja trio and sonya all look like hoes.

Ivy, Taki, Setsuka, Tira, Mai, Litchi, I-no and the DOA girls say 'Hi'.

So did no one actually buy this great game?

I know most people here prefer Japanese-type fighters but this MK is really on that par, not to mention the insane amount of content.
9  Media / General Games / Re: Mortal Kombat on: March 31, 2011, 04:35:43 PM
Just played the demo. I love it, this is one hell of a comeback for the franchise.

its hard for me to imagine this series making a comeback since it always relied on gimmicks. can you explain hyow it made a comeback?

Sure, it relied on gimmicks and lots of content. I hear you if you are to say that a fighter isn't about that but after playing the demo obsessively I can definitely say that the fighting engine is solid, even if it lacks some polish but it's just an old build of the game.
At heart, I was always a bigger MK fan than SF because I was more sold on the character designs and intriguing storyline (yes, in a fighter). I've been loving it since the first and I still do to this day but them going into the "depths" of 3D was a really bad move. What came after with that T-rated bastard child was unbearable for me and I swiftly quit the franchise and continued playing other franchises like SF, SC, GG/BB. Been accustomed to those again, I find the older mk's kinda lame-ish regarding fighting mechanics and technique but for some unexplained reason (not nostalgia) they are still fun and love them to death.

Considering this one promises a deep and balanced engine, running at 60 constant fps, with shiny graphics, 26+ characters, 25+ arenas, a lot of singleplayer content including Storymode, Arcade Ladder (single and/or tag-team), Versus (single/tag-team), Endurance, over 300 challanges (ala Tower of Souls in SCiv) Online (single/tag-team), lots of unlockables (costumes, fatalities, videos) and other goodies, it's hard not to be slightly impressed with the amount of work. Basically, with all my skepticism, playing the demo sealed the deal for me.

If anyone is remotely addicted to MP, hit me up on psn: Raging_booboo.

Also the next game will surely take place in 18th century France, and prolly a female assassin

I just did an indepth google search, and came up with nothing conclusive of the sort. There are quite a bit of rumors flying about, and the French Revolution is definitely one of the most prominant, but so is WW2 Germany, which Ubi has also hinted at. Don't believe anything until they make a formal announcement, because Ubi is having fun toying with the fans, and the fans are loving it.

I just hope that we get a lot of modern day parkour as well. I think that's probably pretty much a given seeing as that the whole goal of the series is to turn Desmond into the perfect modern-day assassin, I just hope they hope save it until the 11th hour and give us only 10 minutes.

The following may be SPOILERS and since I'm not clicking with the spoiler tags on this forum I did my job and warned the peeps:

1) At the end Shaun mentioned the masonic eye and the phrygian cap and both appear on the declaration of independence, 18th century, France. This is also mentioned in the game guide for ACB
2) The baron de Valois has a whole chapter for himself so it may be a hint on the things to come
3) Mont Saint-Michel is a citadel in France and I don't find a good reason why it's in the MP maps, since all are from Italy, so another hint
4) Ubisoft is a french company and Ubi Montreal is a french subsidiary so I'll consider this also
5) The women rights declaration would make a female assassin in that period so plausible and it's a chance they have to fructify.
6) WW2 has been ruled out by some Ubi CEO or manager at some point and I'm too lazy to link it here.


Also, Ive played AC1 on PC but then again all my life I've played pc games and turned to consoles last gen and I'm reconsidering getting AC1 on PS3 but I'm afraid it's going to freeze like crazy, even if they released that freeze patch so I'd like imput from guys which have it on that platform.

Also, it really depends on how you play, Kyuusei, because the first playthru of AC2 took me about 40 hours and ACb about 50, but then again, I'm a big fan of the franchise and I like to mess around with everything that's being thrown at me, even collecting chests, and considering ACb has MP, it gives it unlimited replay value.

I have yet to play a AC game, and probably never will. I'm not fond of the whole "sneaking around" style of gameplay. Too much God of War and Devil May Cry will do that to you.

Not that much sneakiness required in the games. Maybe the first is a little more exigent in this aspect but the second is literally a breeze and you can choose the way you want to play be it silent or guns blazing. Also the games are on the easy casual side and I always tend to not upgrade health stuff from the start to have a real challenge so if you're into rewarding hard experiences I won't think it will be your cup of tea. The games do a wonderful job of painting past time periods and giving the player total immersion in that world (and music helps a lot too) so if you want that in a game, go for it.

Big AC fan from the first (even if repetitive) but my game will arrive next week so that's why I'm staying silent... until then I am replaying AC2 for the third time.

That was a really unexpected surprise. Great concept.

Man, I loved Heavenly Sword. I thought Enslaved wasn't quite up to HS's level, but still loved it. The acting in HS and Enslaved makes it stand out above all others, a lot of people dont like the games cause NT's combat always rewards defensiveness and not button mashing. Andy Serkis is a god.

A big NO to that. HS battle system rewards button mashing above anything else. I can agree that NG or the more recent LoS rewards strategic play and defensive play but HS does not. Myself included in those "a lot of people", didn't like the game simply because it was bland, had uninspired parts and was really really really short.
