Kingdom Come : Deliverance

Recommended Posts

Having an absolute blast in it thus far.

- Lost all the starting money intended for charcoal on gambling, became desperate, had pick and sell flower bouquets and part with some clothing to make it back somehow.

- Was going to be an upstanding citizen until I got seduced out of my remaining 40 groschen by a bathhouse wench and had to resort to doing shady work for the miller. Found an expensive amulet in a crow's nest while doing that work and pawned it for 250 groschen ; take your money and sod off miller!

- Got a bit lost in the woods at night after chasing and dispatching a pathetic bandit who surrendered as soon as I drew my sword, couldn't see a thing so I thought I'd bee-line through the woods, promptly went towards what looked like an open field to just to be able to see anything at all, what I didn't see was the cliff just behind the bushes...

Quite refreshing compared to most games nowadays.

Yes. It really shows many of the "big boys" in the scene how a proper RPG experience can be designed and so intricately coded as to have everything interweave by action reaction.

Plus the acting, sounds, natural and credible and believable places aided by superb cinematic direction do embold it beyond some of the acclaimed titles of some years ago.

Being based of historical authenticity just lends to it a much stronger appeal than fusrodah stuff, at least for me. Did backup right at the KS at full content level. One of the best projects i've backed.

Didn't play it through the development phases, but kept tabs with their "rulebook" ideas and mechanics.

Yeah best kickstarter i backed, they were always updating and showing tremendous progress with the construction to the whole OW. Rough part was the Physical Edition being 4 discs totaling 29gb which only installed 4.3gb and u had to download the remaining 26.8gb on release just to play the game, the reason people buy the physical edition is to avoid the massive downloads!

I buy the physical edition just for a box and manual. My download speeds are good enough.

Still can't beat Skyrim

They are two different games, overall: Skyrim is Fantasy with magic, this one is “true”. In Skyrim you can be literally all you want to be, here you are just one character that can do several stuffs, but the story is only one, like a book.

PFFFFT.. box and manual?!  How old must you be?! ;) 

(kidding of course, this was my first RPG with a box and manual)

I've been sorely tempted watching Kingdom's development.  I may pick it up when/if Naval Action gives up its ghost.

I played a little yesterday before bed.  I just notice it had a patch and was thinking of poping on for a bit before bed.   So far been enjoying it.  The new combat style is a bit tricky to get use to and I couldn't get the stupid horse to run the first time I ran at the start (did save the chick from rapage).   If you don't see me in game for a while you all will know why.

I'm from *before* manuals.

Cassette tape in a standard jewel case with paper insert. At best. 15-30 minutes to load a game..

Then the "Golden Age" of big boxes with 100-200 page manuals which were informative and a good read....
Then a small box with a quick start manual of a few dozen pages (at best).
Then ... well... :(

The KC:D Codex is smaller than a 'book' would be, but is fairly in depth for an in game resource.

Combat is a relatively slow burn - it requires Henry to learn some things before *you* can use them, and for you to understand and reliably use place and position, and the use of counters and devices.

Once you get that, it is fantastic. By far the closest feel of any PC game to swordsmanship - don't let the 'slow' pace fool you, to make 'real time' tactical responses as you would holding a weapon from the feeling of the bind you need the visual path to be slower... and you will get brutalised by those who are even remotely close to you in skill if you treat them with complacence. (sometimes).

I study
Meyer (Longsword and Dusack) ~ Art of Combat, 1570 and Art of Sword Combat 1568, (Both in translation and print (Foreng trans))
Giganti (Rapier (and companion weapon)) ~ Venetian Rapier, 1606 and The 'Lost' Second Book, 1608 (both in translation and print)
Capoferro (Rapier (and companion weapon)) ~ Italain Rapier Combat 1610 (translation and print)

And the feeling of making choices and 'adapting' them under pressure is so good. The Visual presentation of place and position, measure and the variety of combat devices that you see used (by and against you and other npcs) is much higher than is common and a fairly decent representation of fencing.

Do read the questlog as you go - it summarises what you have just done, what you can *definitely* try doing.. as next steps.

Oh and I found out that while it seems Henry is or could be a bit of a player in the game, of you stay true and pure you get a special achievement.  Might have to do that the first time through since I never do the romance in games the first time, just the main story and than go back  play other styles/paths.

Game is really great and refreshing. I was waiting for RPG in medieval times.

Good refresh from shitty salters attacking rusians on this forums ;)

Got a bit over-eager to explore the open world, ran away in the beginning where you're supposed to get yourself a horse so I've been walking almost everywhere - and now I realized that I had to do the main questline to learn how to parry and whatnot, combat has been a bit one-sided without that and without dodging at all. :P

At least I've got myself setup with a bit of a morally acceptable scam of cooking poached game meat and passing off venison as beef and boar meat as pork to the local grocers.

Nice game so far, I only wish I could save whenever I want since it doesnt always save when I do a sidequest (had to do the 3 fistfights in Rattay 3 times becuz of that).

I have read somewhere that there seems to be a mod that enables unlimited saving.

Could be this one: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1300472152

Got off the road tracking a small herd of deer, heard someone calling out and saw two Cuman heads poking over the hill.

After failing miserably to hit them with an arrow I was charged at by town guards of all things - turns out that they had been escorting prisoners!

So a bit later it ended with three town guards dead, two civilian-looking Cumans untied (can't snitch on me if no one understands them anyways), one dead Cuman because he looked like a regular mercenary who was too dangerous and deserved it, and all over a simple misunderstanding. One guard might've escaped and I had just run into a lone patrol, but since the town doesn't know anything yet I think I'm in the clear.

Hero of the Cumans, well done Henry you damn fool...

its very good

highly recommended 

 

Agree. Maybe it needs a little more optimization, but nothing you cannot do with a patch. The story is awsome, the dialogs at last have a sense to read them, they are not written by a retarded 4 years old, as i saw in other games... It’s a true RPG, and i like it a lot.

Looks amazing.

But I really want to know how that weird American voice actor from Arma 2 forced the whole Czech Republic to miscast him in every videogame the country makes.

His laugh makes me think every time, "All he's the village fool hero in the making."

 

Oh you know you can romance a few folks right, we figued something out.  He romances the lady of Tamb.......some realy long name I can't spell you meet pretty early.  Well while Henery may never be nobel, but I sure as hell figure he will have a litttle bastard nobel child out of that one.   LOL

Oh and if you romance/do no one you get an achievement for being a virgin at the end of the game.

 

So far I like it, the combat feels clunky, but hay he's a blacksmith son that just started to learn so I take it for that.  The game is a little slow paced though too so don't rush and make sure you have time to save cause you can't without the snapps.  Over all I been enjoying it.
