    67gb for me

    [​IMG]


    i think the 4k cinematic videos are the reason the full size is 98gb


    now the game looks almost like the original game , the lighting isn't up-to-date which is alright but i've seen better lighting engine in 2016 games


    MSI AB OSD doesn't work at all with this game


    when Fullscreen is on Nvidia's shadowplay doesn't work , borderless will allow it to work though


    gameplay wise , it's more of the same + loot boxes

    the game runs so smooth

    Yes, they say that 10% free space is optimal for an SSD. I think that's when the blue bar gets red.

    Just watched Giantbomb's quicklook... Brad said and showed that he has gotten several Legendary drops in game just from playing. And said there is zero reason to ever use the Lootboxes.

    easy to say it doesnt when this becomes an issue apparently only in the final act where the true ending is hidden.

    But even then, several reviews have pointed out that you still don't have to buy anything and it is possible to complete the final act without using that system.
    People seem perfectly okay to grind for ungodly amounts of time in games, but... they are acting as if Shadow of War simply doesn't allow you to finish the game unless you buy something. Which is not true.

    I've seen some people complaining about it, upset that they would "have to grind" in the finale to get the true ending. But, these are the same people I know that have 100s of hours in Shadow of Mordor... just grinding through the Nemesis system.

    :)
    I've only got like 35 hours... but, I've got a friend on Steam with over 200 hours in it. And he hasn't finished the game once.

    Well I did finish it once, now on my second run because of the nemesis forge thing (which I still have no idea how to use / how it works, got to google that). I'm at about 110h for now.

    Well lets hope every game forces a "grind or buy rng box" to get the real ending from now on. Sounds perfectly reasonable.

    I'd be playing slotmachines instead of computer games if feeding a costly gambling addiction is what I wanted.

    Thanks for overreading into what I'm saying.
    I'm not a fan of grinding at all. But, I was pointing out the hypocrisy in people I know, the people complaining about Shadow of War needing some grinding... are the exact same people I see grinding in games to ungodly ends.
    Like the friend with over 200 hours in Mordor.
    Yet, he's complaining that he read that the end game of War requires about ten hours of grinding. When he hasn't even finished Mordor.

    I just find it funny that people like that, people who grind in games for ungodly lengths... are crying about War requiring some grinding.



    For me, I'm excited for the game and can't wait to play it. But not for the story. For the nemesis system.
    That random, almost "alive" feeling the system brings to the game. That's what I loved about Mordor, and I can't wait to see what War does with it.

    Alright, but you phrasing suggests everyone is a pretentious grinder of the first game when i doubt that rings true for the vast vaaast majority of people. Anyway, as long your unique pov proves everyone to be wrong about #2, who cares.

    If I believed that... would I only have 35 hours in the first game?

    And I'm not saying anyone is "wrong" about the second game, I can't say... I haven't played it. I'm just pointing out that I found it funny that people who grind in games are complaining about grinding in this one.

    Does this one have more variety, environmentally? The first one felt like one map, a giant field, with no variation at all. I couldn't stand it.
