  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Strategy games for beginners? on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    Endless Space is definitely not for beginners IMO, but it is fun. Just has a really steep learning curve, not much documentation, and no tutorial. Once you get the hang of it though it is really fun. ...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic PS4's 50% More Powerful than Xbone on the System Wars board.

    @Wasdie: Yeah this is my view as well. I'm a PC gamer, I will play most multiplats on my gaming PC at much better visuals anyway. What is going to make me buy a console is exclusives. It may bug me th...

    Ehhhh... to some extent. I don't get the epic feeling that I used to, but the annoying bits have been smoothed out over time as well. My height of enjoyment was WotLK, it seemed to go down hill with C...

    Eh, I'll probably give WoW another shot when WoD comes out. I like the changes they are making to the classes - cutting ability bloat, retuning, etc...

    How big is your SSD? Because if you have your games on the SSD and only need the Raptor for storage buy a pair of blues and put them in Raid0/1 and you will get better performance for cheaper. I have ...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Gamespot gives Divinity : Original Sin 9/10 . on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    Not what i was hoping personally. The combat is really tedious and the story is like an episodic TV show, no overarching narrative beyond some obscure catastrophe. I'm hoping Eternity will be bette...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Is steam going down the shitter? on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    I have to say Cup. I used to agree with you on some things. But the constant troll-bait posts on PC and SW is really starting to get old.

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic What is the current state of Titanfall on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @Gamesterpheonix: Dead as 3 week old roadkill. They might have fixed the matchmaking, but the population is so low on the PC it still takes 5-10 minutes to fill a lobby and that is in the popular ga...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @Maroxad: I still to this day will not count any RPG as better than the original NWN. Most would say BG and Torment were better from a story perspective and they may be right. But the way everything s...

  • SerOlmy rated DLuf's review for iProbably the One Game That I've Been Waiting for Ever Since Baldur's Gate, as not helpful.
  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @Byshop: You are a more patient man than I. After 8 hours in the starting town that was a sufficiently large data sample for me to conclude that I was wasting my time playing as I was getting no enjo...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @Byshop: Welcome to Divinity's idea of "Exploration". By that I mean the the illusion of it. It is in the same vein of telling a 5 year old that they are free to roam the entire park and then crack...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Warmachine: Tactics on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    I am not in the beta, but from what I've seen in the gameplay vids it plays a lot like XCOM. Turn-based strategy where you are controlling a small army consisting of grunts, specialists, wizards (warc...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Warmachine: Tactics on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @uninspiredcup: You are not paying retail for the game. You are paying for early access. To get into the beta you had to back the game at $65 or higher during the kickstarter, hence the $65 for ear...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    I had just made it out of the first city. Solved the murder, which took FOREVER because the damn button that I knew had to be there wasn't visible from any of the camera angles so i spend an extra hou...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @Renevent42: Because I was past the point of caring about the characters, story, or combat. It wasn't enjoyable. Why waste the time learning the crafting or combo system when you don't enjoy the comba...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @Renevent42: Numerous player reviews and even comments in this forum have made note of how poorly laid out and structured the first city is. The term being used was "abysmal". So I would argue tha...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Warmachine: Tactics on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    I am a backer and it is shaping up to be pretty awesome IMO. But I would not pay for early access at $65, backers get the base game for $30 I think, but you need a higher tier to get beta access. I wo...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    @robokill: One of the other major problems is that this game makes a terrible first impression. When you have to drag yourself through the first 6-10 hours that is usually more than I'm willing to in...

  • SerOlmy posted a message in the forum topic Do you like RPGs? Play Divinity on the PC & Mac Discussion board.

    Yeah, I don't begrudge others for enjoying it. For me it just doesn't hit the right buttons in terms of old-school RPG stuff for me to enjoy it. I'm hoping Eternity and Torment will be more enjoyabl...
