(If you buy it for me I will record myself doing whatever you want)

all the stuff i have seen hasnt seemed that janky. my worry is the controls. apparently its plays alot like for honor but with more complex plus you have stamina. but they also seem to be going for the Old style classless RPG stuff where you can just talk your way out of stuff or sneak or become literate. i mean you dont have to kill anyone at all. and also a achievement if you stay a virgin the entire game.

what sucks is the guy is kinda a conservative shithead who said stupid poo poo in anger/heat of the moment. i mean id love it to be GOTY somehow because 1. a passion project thats been being built for like 6 years ended up good and 2. polygon catching on fire with rage.

Reading Dan Vavra's blogs from the very beginning and generally following the development of KCD, It's apparent that the game's meant to be anti-skyrim and take all good from the Witcher 3 (while leave bad parts out, as little as there was).

Like keeping landscape realistic - long flat land instead of monster den/dungeon behind every superhigh mountain and 1 minute of travel, meaningful distances between settlements, etc. Hero being just a cog in the machine, not rags-to-riches-to-god type as in GTA or Elder Scrolls.

Generally, such approach would put any game in "hardcore" and "noncasual" section, think of ArmA or whatever where you drive APC 30 minutes to conflict point just to die instantly by hitting a mine.

Which can't be a bad thing at slightest, especially since it looks like they really tried to keep their promise. Sure, there's no children in game. And no crossbows. But adding stuff like crossbows would mean you could easily get 1-hit killed even in plate armor and what fun is that? Adding children would make SJW trash moan even louder. And landscape is still compressed - who'd like to travel 60 minutes in real time to reach next village - although it's much more realistic than any other game.

Now, gaming journalism, as it calls itself, can gas itself. We're 3 days from release and there's still not a beep on major sites. Probably Warhorse Studios didn't pay them or whatever hosed up system controls media those days.
In the end, they missed the release of GOTY 2018. This is what I truly hope. Because KCD looks like a game I've dreamed of to play ever since my childhood.

My battleboo just said "yeah, us. Ma'am. We'll be going to war. Not you."


In Bethesda's Defence, I did always feel like I am traveling when I rode through the roads in the woodland Skyrim, due to how windy and circling they were made. It was a feat of its own, kind of like GTA San Andreas had the distance between cities be ridiculously short, yet made to feel way longer.

it looks interesting. worst comes to worst i can either give it to a friend who would like it or sell it to a store for 30 bucks. my guess is it will get some solid reviews from various places but there will be a bunch of angry think pieces and tweets from various shitheads. then they will go back to making GBS threads on far cry 5 for ruining their hopes and dreams.

Even if he was, how does it affect the game? It's made by 100+ people for starters and if lead producer is a radical type, it'll just testify to the passion put into it. The actors doing the characters already are pretty good.
Game's meant to be as historically accurate as it can, so there's surely no hidden pictures of Hitler in monastery or whatever.... and if there was, it just adds to meme value

Beethoven was deaf. Surely no one would let a deaf guy play piano on their concert or compose music if they didn't know about him much aside the fact. But in the end, how glad we are that he could and did

From what I gather, Dan Vavra's rebellious and consistent nature was what made that game happen in the first place - AAA publishers asked some MMO poo poo on IPad and whatever for their support and he sent them all to hell, went on Kickstarter and in the end, made the game he wanted to make.

Spot on. And what do you have to be to make a game that gets us out of modern EA/Ubi overpriced bullshit trend circle and make a truly memorable, out-of-the-comfort-zone non-regenerating-health-etc game?
That's what I'm hoping for.
And also that I'm not very, very wrong.

I don't get "he's rayciss" argument at all. Sure, you wouldn't want a weird friend like that or whatever, but we're talking about a product. Let's say guy who invented french fries was racist as gently caress. Would you stop eating them?
And if you did, aren't you a retard? (A: yes). Fries are tasty and by eating them, you, at least, are taking the best out of bad situation.

So he's neonazi-sympathizing Chris Roberts, in your opinion.

Edit: /\ the difference is the guy who invented French fries isn't getting money from every sale that might end up in the pockets of hate groups and French fries aren't possibly spreading his racist views.
