@ubi-woofer Have you seen the thread about PC performance loss with 1.1.0 with over 450 posts?
@asjf3nix What's your problem? Some people like to play a guy, some a girl. Give a choice, more happy customers.
I stopped playing Origins quickly because I simply didn't care about that dude.
And Valhalla is way bigger than Odyssey so they simply inserted the option to switch the gender on the fly so people can try out the other one without having to replay from scratch. That's all of it.
@cell1e I like Eivor very much, just the way she is. She is not a beautiful princess, she is a tough cookie who has been through many hardships.
And she wears no makeup which would be totally out of place. Find a rare picture of a beautiful celebrity you know with zero makeup to see the effect.
@outlander1982 Why remove the player's choice? Some want to play male, some female. Remove choice, decrease sales.
I actually wondered when I played Odyssey, Kassandra fired some arrows from hiding and got referenced as "she" - "now how do they know?".
This whole "he" and "she" thing is completely overrated. They chose a neutral sounding name (to most at least) to simplify the audio after all.
@leoraptor1979 Um - what are the DLCs for? Why did we pay for gold and ultimate editions? That should do. An support for one year? One year is called "warranty" for other products. And one year won't even be enough to iron out the worst of the bugs.
Oh, and what support in the first place? Useless answerbot "community managers" ("can you showcase a vide about the problem?"), not enough updates fixing not enough bugs, and often enough the updates don't even fix what they promised. The useless store is the only ongoing thing (and even that is broken often enough).
I couldn't care less about MTX anyway. It's not like they are offering anything needed or even useful. You can play and look just fine with the ingame stuff. Sitting on opals and keep thinking "meh, useless" at Reda. Really wondering who keeps pumping money into the Helix store.
For me the dealbreaker is the PC framerate problem. If they don't get this fixed and back to pre 1.10 the upcoming content will be all useless. I didn't stumble into story hangers like so many others, but there are some fundamental problems in their story engine when each event can find a way to break in this game. You shouldn't believe they made any games of this type before.
I find it kind of silly when people debate about "realistic" regarding gender in a computer game. If you want "realistic" make every hit disable your character completely and remove all healing. Remove the ability to carry anything except what you have equipped. Sounds fun, huh? And that's just for starters.
For me it's simple. No female main character, no buy. Others prefer male, so let's have a choice. And I couldn't care less about "canon".
Oh, and for the "girls don't sell" crowd - Tomb Raider, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last Of Us, ...

@yesin069 This all sounds totally clueless.
We know when the DLCs launch and can decide if we want to launch a NG+ before or rather do the DLC first.
The Norway arc would be pretty quick on NG+ (like the Kephalonia arc in Odyssey probably) and then we would be at the settlement anyway. We could even do daily Reda quests from a manual save.
All just excuses.
Yes, the game is pretty long, but after it's played through it's dead without NG+.
completely destroys the entire purpose of a customisable, collectible crew of raiders
There has never been such a feature in the game.
You could hire a good looking JV, and two days later the owner had decided to put a bucket on her head or dress her in one of the ugly Helix outfits.
Also river raid JVs have been broken since it launched, community JVs only ever are lvl 1.
Lvl 2 and 3 are auto generated with ugly helmets or Corona masks.
I wish they ditched the whole community JV concept and make the whole crew fully customizable.
@brianjlee66 Looks like the usual fishing issue. When the fish get behind you they get lost most of the time. I have lost even small ones this way when fishing from a dock.
I always fish from land, one step landwards from the shore line and preferably in a little bay.
You can't do that from a boat obviously so boat fishing is much harder than land fishing.
I have had this in the past. It worked fine the last weeks, then it bugged again yesterday. Restarting the game allowed me getting the second quest from Reda.
I have fallen back to my old routine now:
- get first quest from Reda (and check shop)
- fulfill it
- get second quest from guy in Lincoln harbor
- make Lincoln titanium run while we're here (unrelated)
- fulfill second quest
If you get the "free person" quest in Lincoln you also get the Nottingham forest camp most of the time which I like better than the ones from Reda, more arrows to pick.
