Absolver PC reviewAbsolver PC review

I was chatting to him about it as we were playing and he says it works really well.

Sounds good. Also, do you know if the PvE part scales with more people in your party? I'm looking to play the game with two friends but it feels like a lot of PvE encounters could be trivial with three people in the party - even with friendly fire being there.

"once" might be the key word there, yes?


Would love a reply from Fraser regarding the controls on mouse and keyboard though.

Absolver PC reviewAbsolver PC review

Have you tried the game using a mouse and keyboard? It looks like it should be quite easy to use the left and right mouse buttons for light and heavy attacks, thumb button for block, shift (or space?) for dodge and so on.

Heck, while I played most of Dark Souls 1-3 on a controller, using mouse and keyboard was still better (at least on 2 and 3), so I'm assuming this will be the case with Absolver as well.

I mean, since it's not really a "real" fighting game (in the sense of using four face buttons for different hits and kicks), I'm guessing it should be absolutely fine with mouse and keyboard. Let me know what your thoughts are please.Reply

I didn't, because I just can't get on with this style of game on m&k. Our Fraser did, though. He managed to kick my ass with it once, so it must be fine!

Destiny 2's PC beta is grappling with some oddly named login errors Destiny 2's PC beta is grappling with some oddly named login errors

Meh, there's not much to the beta anyway. While I did enjoy what little content available, it felt weird to start with a fully upgraded skill tree and lots of different weapons. The firestrike thing, while fun the first time, wouldn't reward anything of note anyway and, at best, side grades (since we were already "maxed out").

I'm still looking forward to the full release, and the game looked great on a 1440p monitor and a 1080ti with everything on max (though obvious things like dof and blur disabled), I felt done with it after a single run of the firestrike thing and campaign.

Looking forward to some actual content (I know it's a beta, but it's more like a short demo where you don't get to try the game for real).

AMD RX Vega’s pricing was “not just for launch, but ongoing”AMD RX Vega’s pricing was “not just for launch, but ongoing”

Separate dedicated mining cards already exists (not for Vega though) but that doesn't change a thing. And there's no way to regulate it.


A large stock of the same GPU can be needed for all kinds of things, not only for mining.


For example, a lot of GPU's could be needed for rendering. Or for an internet café, or a place for kids and young adults to spend time at after school and evenings. Or all kinds of other things.


Sure, only making it possible for a company to buy larger stock could go a bit of the way, but seeing it's probably easy to just create a company (at least in Sweden, and doesn't cost a lot more than just above a hundred pounds), that's not a proper solution either.


The only real solution is to produce enough GPU's that the market (both mining and gaming) needs.

Indeed. The lack of supply with high demand will always drive prices up. Happened to GTX 1070's and most of high end RX 400 and 500 too. AMD and Nvidia didn't plan those price hikes. Shortages for one reason or another did it. To get the prices back down, they need to churn out more cards like no tomorrow.

No one said they should remove it. I just pointed out how majority of games that have the word 'Online' in the title are bad. Google "Online MMO" if you don't believe me.

nu1mlock Avatar

To be fair, there aren't many MMO's in general that are super popular. Though some of the more popular ones do have "Online" in their name. Three quite popular MMO's I can think of is EVE Online, Elder Scrolls Online and Black Desert Online. Then there's Guild Wars 2, Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft. Those are some the biggest MMO's currently, and 3 our of 6 has the word "Online" in them.


You are, however, correct in that the majority of games with the word "Online" in them are bad. Then again, the majority of games in general are bad.

I haven't watched the anime myself, but the anime (and novel, which it originates from) is called "Sword Art Online". Removing "Online" just because it's also a video game wouldn't make sense.

And it comes with a true horror story : It fails to include free locomotion, if only as an option.

Which for a ~1 year old VR user is about as fun as having to play a FPS on a keyboard without any mouse support : You'll spend more time cursing the controls then enjoying the AAA graphics.

Instead of a 10% discount, I suggest pricing the game at 36$ and selling a free locomotion DLC for 4$ (if not the other way around).
nu1mlock Avatar

It includes full locomotion and was confirmed at least two weeks ago (one week prior to your post). There's some places you need to get with teleporting though but shouldn't ruin your experience.

Quite disappointing that they still haven't added a sensitivity option.

I hope it's a typo because if he leaves the game and it would "still be complete", that means it already is and shouldn't be in early access. But I guess I'm nitpicking here.Reply
Fraser Brown Avatar

It's not a typo but he obviously doesn't mean it's ready now.
