Mornin '14
Filed under: ACTIONTRIP

Today is a strange day. Un Om Bun contacted me from the underworld, he says the afterlife is awesome. It looks like June is going to be busier than I imagined, what with Divinity: Original Sin, GRID: Autosport, Sniper Elite 3 and WildStar out on the market. Yep, there's shit to review and news isn't all that dead, as I expected it to be. So, the good news is that the summer gaming drought is still not upon us, which is fucking awesome.

For those of you who have inquired here are my initial thoughts on Divinity: Original Sin (bear in mind, I've only just played for like an hour, so these are just initial impressions).

Divinity: Original Sin appears to hark back to CRPG PC classics, which at the moment, I'm pretty convinced, is a bloody good thing. Even the GUI is retro and the inventory system and other elements are similar to those we've seen in oldies such as NWN and, yes, even Larian's original Divine Divinity. The gameplay itself appears to be a bit more complex than I thought. There's a variety of cool actions you can perform depending on the class you selected (the Ranger in my case). The story hasn't kicked off yet, so can't comment much on that yet. Suffice it to say, I seem to be having fun, which is a good thing this early on in a game. How's that for mindless optimism?

No more gay movie trailers, cockfags!

Also, here's a fucking of the day for you assholes: "ActionTrip is an aged man-o-war? ActionTrip is not old; no one would call her old. She has a bluff bow, lovely lines. She's a fine sea-boat: weatherly, stiff and fast … very fast, if she's well handled. No, she's not old; she's in her prime."

Thanks for sticking with us, God knows we need more stickiness.

Wait until they release a couple of patches. Performance-wise it's ok but there are some audio bugs, the worst one being one that loops npc dialogue. In populated areas you can't even hear yourself think. It's incredibly annoying. The game is in a playable but NOT enjoyable state. There's also some minor questionable design decisions that I don't have time to write about now. But trust me, they're there.

The game should have spent another month in development. Then I would have recommended it. In time, DOS will be good, perhaps even great. Postpone your purchase or suffer through the bugs if you're desperate.
  Vader: When you wrote DOS I thought "X-Wing" for some reason.
Vader: I also thought "Norton Commander"
optimus slime: Is that the (un)official (get it??) review?

By the way, are you guys going to review Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark?
Vader [STAFF] Jul 02 2014, 02:53 pm EDT
That's a question I continually ask myself day after day. It's genericness is so unappealing it makes me want to kakka!
