@efesell: If you're on PC get an SSD man, it's really needed for decent load times in PC games now.

I hate saying this because there is absolutely no need but it isn't a game for everyone. All those things you've mentioned (bar the technical issues) I think are fine, good even. This game won't hold your hand.

@soulcake: Multiple enemies for me is how long can I walk backwards while parrying until I end up in a nice open field where I can properly manage the fight. Saying that having three guys surround you and you just riposte one of their attacks killing them instantly is great. The one on one combat is really excellent though.

@nals: I take your point about the saint, fair enough that does seem a bit sour. But to bring up both Alexander and Rome as a reason why there would be a black population in 15thC Bohemia seems a bit off. Rome fell almost 1000 years before the events of the game and Alexander 1600 years, most of the lingering multiculturalism that existed during those periods (it certainly did) was unlikely to be sustained into the 15thC. Much of what Rome had in place totally collapsed and populations did not move as freely, especially in Northern Europe. Your figures for population demographics just seem made up to suit your argument and I am willing to bet the majority of people had never seen a none white person. Hell, there are plenty of examples of late 19th and early 20th century Europeans having never seen a POC. If this game included Prague I'd be more inclined to side with the race argument but I just don't see any grounding here. From what I've read of trade routes I also don't buy that there would be much significant travel across the region. Localised trade spread across the continent, not some bloke from China following the silk road right through to Italy or Germany.

@cupofdoom: I can definitely understand that. I guess I need to find Sci-fi / fictitious creatures to be well designed or interesting to find them scary. So far not much from Subnautica has done that. I'd much rather be swimming around whales than those weird mushroom tentacle things and I'd be much more nervous about coming across a Megalodon rather than the daft looking monsters.

@cupofdoom: I have seen pictures of that creature, still think I'd be more engaged with real world creatures. There are so many prehistoric creatures that could have been used, it's an odd criticism I know but the setting and the biology all seems a bit gamey. If it was more like abzu in setting it would be really fantastic, I do still really like it though.

@memu:What's the issue with drinking? I've played about 6hrs and it's really not a problem.

I am enjoying it but would feel more drawn in if it was a waterworld set on some future / other timeline of earth. I find it hard to get engaged with the fictitious animals; I don't find the carnivores scary but you bet i'd run if there was a Great White.
