    Thankfully I was able to download a framegen mod for my 4080 super to make the towns 60+ fps. Otherwise I'm glad I don't have a toaster, been having a lot of fun.

          1. Their eyes glow red AND are slightly pulsating (so you can see the difference between people with regular bright red eyes)
          2. They get extra sassy
          3. They refuse to follow orders
          4. They occasionally stop to grab their heads, it gets worse as the disease progresses down to random paralysis
          5. Their stats increase and they become more powerful
          6. If you encounter the disease for the first time you get a tutorial prompt. If the tutorial prompt is not in your archive then you are safe and don't need heightened vigilance. You can remain at ease.

          So another way to test is to just spam d pad and look at what they are doing. If you send "go" does everyone run forwards? If someone doesn't follow your orders you pull a 40k Commissar and execute them on the spot.

    Unironically doomposters spreading misinformation and blatant lies.

    No, the game doesn't have less enemy variety than DD1, it's literally an objective lie that is easily disproven.
    Yes, the map is way fricking bigger with more shit to discover than DD1, people probably forget that that game was like 3 paths - to the main city, the Tower and at most the outpost where the final boss fight happens and just the path from the starting area to the capital is longer than the entire map in DD1.

    People also blast/rush through main story and then complain it doesn't have a lot of things to do.

      The map is big, and there's stuff in it, but that stuff is generally pretty frickin boring. A tiny cave with some bandits and a chest with a wakestone shard, amazing. A hill with a riftstone that summons a useless piece of shit one time, mesmerizing. A treacherous rocky path that prompts half your pawns to jump off a cliff to their death in a river that has a chest with a detoxify potion at the end, stellar.
      I think the only cave I've found so far that wasn't a boring tiny piece of shit is the cave connecting Battahl to the Volcanic Island. And while that cave was sizable and interesting to get through, it was home to like 120 goblins, one cyclops, and a few rock saurians. I had to kill like 4 cyclops on the road to get to the cave.

        That's really no different than any shit in Elden Ring or BotW. It seems every Open World game will suffer from that.

          You'll note I didn't expressly say that I love BOTW and Elden Ring in my post - I've never even played BOTW, and Elden Ring does suffer from repetitive optional content though I would give it a point for letting you skip past boring shit easier than DD2. If I'm comparing DD2 to anything it's DDDA, which I was hopeful this would be a progression from. Instead it's basically just a bigger DD1 without any dangan.

    Even assuming the game ran perfectly and there was no kerfluffle over microtransdicks it has core game design problems. The pacing of combat is too slow. Enemies are too passive and have too much health. Enemies should be more aggressive but die much faster. Large enemy fights are boring and a chore. Some small enemy fights are fine. Literally just copy monster hunter's homework. It's an easy lay up and they still fricked it up.

    Every single RPG element is either half-baked, poorly implemented or entirely absent, to the point that calling it an RPG feels improper. The story, characters and world are all bad or shallow, which of course they were in the original too but not only did they fail to improve them in the sequel they actually made them worse somehow. The game is hollow. Combat's fun at least

    I think the hype died out long before the game was even released. Too many red flags. When the game actually released I was pretty indifferent until the MTX popped up as the first thing I saw once the install was complete, at which point I felt pretty dejected. Why hide the MTX until install completion? I mean we all know why but still....

    As for the game itself, I got bored of it about 20 hours in. I think the larger map isn't necessarily a good thing, because it becomes incredibly tedious to traverse it. When I got to batal or whatever I was hoping for a bunch of new enemy types, CONSIDERING IT WAS AN ENTIRELY NEW BIOME, but instead I got reskins of the enemies I've killed dozens (or in the case of goblins, hundreds) of times. Also having to put down a port crystal in the second biggest city in the game is fricking moronic design.

        sure they did, there were dozens of threads lamenting the limitations imposed on making females in the character creators. It's possible to make good ones, but some presets were clearly intended for DEI purposes, and as a result were smacked with the ugly stick to not offend certain parties.
        ironically, this is one part of DD2 that mods will absolutely fix, just needs time.

    I like it but thus far it feels like they ruined sorcerer. Only 4 skills (for every class minus warfares 3) and only 2 real sorcerer spells (a malestrom you can't aim and meteor from 1) isnt very fun. The explosion spell is the only real damage dealer.

        Usually trailers are a just a slice of the game and not the majority of the content. The fact that an endgame boss was the focus of the first trailers is pretty telling.
