Yes there is a tear in my eye.  I'd love to see everyone again.  So fun battling and cooking up theories and strategies.  Hopefully I can meet up with many of you in another game.  The problem is to hear who is who.

It is quite simple really... Gamers nowadays became extremely forgiving. Many think that I overstate things in my rant. I guess people like button mashers more and more now. Hell, next thing we know, Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter will put a big red X on its dozens of years of legacy, and turn into an isometric 3D corridor button masher with an occasional "get over here!", and people will still sing their praises about it.

More forgiving?  Depends on the group you talk to.  Fanboys who, as one youtuber so eloquently put it, worship pieces of plastic, pretty much go beyond mere 'forgiveness', and hit along the levels of 'eat any <expletive> you shovel'.  Actual fans, on the other hand?  The type who care enough about a game to express their real feelings?  The most 'forgiveness' you might see would be a 'try and see for sure' approach, just so, at worst, they don't feel 'judgmental'.  Beyond that?  Torches, pitchforks, guns, bombs, and anything they could get their hands on including the proverbial kitchen sink.  Either that, or we don't buy their <expletive>, which is still the best way to show them exactly how forgiving we truly are.

Yep.  Not buying it, Unbended looks like a better option.

just had to drop this here.

the amount of flak this game has gotten is Rampant, and tbh I think mostly rightly so. the steam community has exploded once more.

 

honestly though all good and bad sides of the game aside....

Sacred 1&2 vs Sacred 3

its like they made the next command & conquer without telling anyone this time its gonna be a hidden object game.

Well, I watched plenty of playthroughs of the game already, and nothing can change my opinion still... This is a max 15€/$ game. It has some pretty stages, but it also has some downright appalling ones. Side quest for 3 mins? Like kill 10 enemies and done? OMG. I expected this will be a rinse and repeat, but to this extent? Oh, boy, oh, boy... You finish the game in 10 hours max... and they promised 20. Can I facepalm now? :(

LMAO. I lost it on this. Anyway... looking at Joe's rinse and repeat, happily mixed up with "suffer falling blocks from sky in a tight corridor" gameplay, spruced up by 2 min long side quests, I am sure as hell that this game went down to the 10$ margin. I still maintain that the voice actor for Aria is cute, but they overdid it with the comments.

 

Joe's comments were more fun. Like that voodoo totem gibberish or that judging part. Holy, hell, I was laughing my backside off when he did it.

 

It is painfully clear that poor Keen Games didn't know what they were doing.

Nah, Keen Games knew exactly what they were doing. Its the executives at Deep Silver that didn't let them change anything for the better that didn't

Wow; it's been so long since I've last navigated to this website...but I fired up my old WinXP PC and played Sacred 2 last night into the wee hours of today. Still had a blast! Not sure what to make of Sacred 3, although from what I read, I'll probably wait for it to hit bargain pricing before buying it. That said, Sacred 2 Gold was finally released on GOG, so for anyone who missed out on Ice & Blood, and who is not using Steam (Sacred 2 Gold was released on Steam a long while ago), it's an option. Unbended looks promising. :-)

Watched some videos for Sacred 3 the other day, and wow. Looks like something to pick up once it hits bargain price, and not before then.
