The game has basically six biomes: Nile Valley (with trees and fields), Nile delta (with swamps), Mediterrean scrub and open woodland (the region of Cyrene), sandy desert, rocky desert, bare…

It actually seems to be a decent game, though 'RPG' is probably a bit too grand a term. It looks like an action game that had an RPG system slapped on it because, hey, it works with Witcher III, so…

That's just public talk and they've been saying something like this for a long time. It takes off the heat off Ubi's stock price, Vivendi doesn't want it to be too high - the more desirable Ubi stock…

They are certainly doing their best to maximise hype - the more preorders, the better, must keep Vivendi out of the door…

The overall visual impression of the game is that of a 'Greatest Hits of…

From what I've seen, this is going to be the most 'fantasy' AC so far. Anachronisms up the Wazoo (2 millennia instead of 10 or more as in Far Cry Primal, so PROGRESS!), some weird conventions (human…

Agreed, but the writing succeeds in what it sets out to do. Although the game’s ‘heavy’ in many ways – your character basically starting out as fantasy Chaos Nazi middle management participating in a…

It’s not just the transparently lazy and derivative nature of this ‘neo-terminology’ (PoE is guilty of this just as Dragon Age) that is annoying.

Speaking as a trained historian – there’s a…

Well, my first cRPG character was a half-goblin (?) named Shlurpz the Slimy.
What can I say? I was a teenager at the time :lol:

Good for you, but I actually only encounter this when it is used for Plains Indian names (for instance, Crazy Horse), which is a bit of an oddity - perhaps a legacy of the 19th century. The only…

It's tacky like Hell. In my gaming group we gave those kinds of names to characters in our acne-plagued larval phase. Worth a chuckle and rolling our eyes then, now it's good for a laugh and rolling…

Yeah, I got a good vibe as well from 3-4 hours of playing the Early Access version.
I think I'll quit for now just to prevent 'spoilerification', but it looks and feels pretty good so far. :D

Tidemaster Eb…;)

This game has some odd naming conventions. Take for instance ‘Peninsula of Tiers’, ‘city-state of the Bastard Tier’ and personal names like Graven Ashe, Eb etc.

It’s almost as…

First game I ever used Steam's return policy on. There are some people who seem to take a degree of enjoyment from the game's mechanics, more power to them. I wasn't impressed but not displeased…

Well, I wouldn't call it awful, it looks sort of 'okay' if this were just another generic fantasy cRPG. But their own PR talk about bronze age/iron age etc. builds up expectations the visuals don't…

It's not about looking pretty or not, it just doesn't look very iron/bronze age-y, devastated and dystopian or not. It doesn't look 'bad' or non-dystopian but it feels bland to me. YMMV and all that.

To be honest, so far the game looks visually rather bland. It’s clear that on a technical level the graphics have improved, but if that’s a world ‘in transition between Bronze Age and Iron Age’ it…

While not perfect, I think this measure helps in keeping Steam user reviews that bit more ‘clean and honest’. Sure, there are ways around it, but just because a lock can be forced doesn’t mean it’s a…

I like the look of some of the environments, others are a bit meh to be honest. Anyone else get the impression that the world of Numenera looks more like a multiperiod/multigenre themepark (with each…

Can’t say the setting sounds very inspired either. Venice without the interesting bits. Just the tacky masks and a rather generic vaguely 1600s look to it.

I gave this game a try, but I'm afraid I have to say this is very much a 'Poor Man's Banner Saga'. Combat's not too bad (but not great either), heroine is pretty flat (ideal goody-two shoes heroine),…
