@bceagles128: It's not a glitch. She specifically says "don't come here again." Sucks that I didn't buy her Foltest card, as I thought I already had Foltest and didn't need it. I've been doing well at Gwent regardless.

Get all your mounty friends and go hunting for beaver pelts. Sell those and you should make up the difference. Maple syrup.

My biggest problem with the combat, and note that I'n also on B&BB difficulty, is that the switching targets with lock-on is terrible. Maybe it's because I'm so used to Dark Souls, but it feels like shit in comparison.

Absolutely not, especially for non-subscribers.

The thread title is misleading. All he says is that information about an expansion will be later this year, not that the expansion will be.

GameStop called me at 3:40 to tell me that I could pick up my pre-order at 4... 20 minutes away. That weirdness aside, I'm conflicted about this game. I really, really want to like this game. However, I can't get over the feeling that I don't like it. I'm not good at the combat, which I admit is my fault, but even if I were, I'm not sure I would find the combat particularly enjoyable. On PS4, the game seems to stutter from time to time, there is noticeable texture pop-in, and the load times are kind of bad. I died in the tutorial after falling no more than eight feet, and similar stupid deaths have caused me to have to replay whole cinematics and conversations, but luckily these can be skipped to some degree. I like the narration by Dandelion when you load a save, because it gives you a refresher, but I've had it give me the same one multiple times shortly after each other because of where my save was. As far as I can tell, you can skip those. That sucks. I also constantly get stuck on geometry, and it frequently takes several attempts to get prompts to work, like getting on the fucking horse. The horse controls also suck, especially the hold O to dismount. Compared to Red Dead, the horse in this game is shit. At least I don't have to tap X constantly o make it run. I'm hearing NPCs say the same things over and over, and there don't seem to be many new dialogue options with NPCs who you might think would have more. The inventory system kind of sucks, I'm stockpiling food so I can actually heal after combat, and having to equip abilities instead of just having everything I want passive also kind of sucks. Don't get me started on trying to get prompts to work while underwater. I'm still enjoying the game to some degree, but it's hard for me to overlook so many issues that are nagging at me at every turn.

@frostyryan: It's super violent. People are dying constantly, but there aren't limbs or heads flying or anything like that.

Hey so I think I want to see this Tuesday but I can't leave my little sister in the house alone. Does this movie have excessive cussing, gore, or nudity in it?

Very little gore, next to no nudity, and I didn't notice enough cussing in it to say it was excessive.

Holy shit this movie is so good. I usually don't go for action movies, but holy shit.

I've always thought that Warcraft 3 has some interesting character arcs. Arthas's fall from grace, Grom Hellscream overcoming his wild rage, Illidan's exile from the Dark Elves, Kael'thas leading his people away from being second-class citizens to humans, et cetera. By forcing you to play as each faction, Blizzard makes you identify with each faction's set of characters so that you can understand and sympathize with their plight, even if they become antagonists in the end.
