I must preface this with the fact that I am running Windows 10 on Bootcamp on my 2014 MacBook Pro - Intel Iris 5100 graphics card. Capable of running Direct X11 and the game. Probably not the best graphically - even with all graphics settings on low, still a bit of lag.
I’m LOVING the game, though. The combat, although I’ve watched a ton of gameplay videos, is so much smoother than I anticipated, and the story is already interesting. I only had time to play for about 30 minutes before I had to get some sleep, but I really wanted to stay up.
It took me a moment to notice this, but my Razer Naga Epic Chroma was reacting to the game! I started trying to play using my mouse, a la Diablo 3 (wishful tinking - is it hard to build that kind of functionality into the medium-height levels/dungeons?), but when I couldn’t control anybody that way I put the mouse aside and went to WASD. It wasn’t until my 4th battle that I noticed - every time I entered a combat scene, the Naga would flash red and white. I can’t wait to see what the game will do with my BlackWidow Chroma Stealth: will it work yet with the Beta like my mouse does, or will I have to wait for the full release to see all the Chroma goodness in action?
My only suggestions:
- A lot of Chroma interaction.
- The ability to customize keybindings for controls. I learned keyboard and mouse to play Overwatch specifically, but have remapped everything to ESDF instead of WASD - this is so I can always find my “right” key with the tactile bump that most keyboards have.
- Somebody else mentioned it, but more voice interactions. Maybe the budget wasn’t in it, and if that’s the case, then I totally understand, but the audible speech just makes those dialogue scenes that much more engaging.
- Diabo III-like controls, at least for movement in the dungeons. So much easier to click where you want to go, or even just hold the left-button down and move around to have Gully follow the cursor, rather than trying to get the timing/spacing right trying to get on the correct plane to be able to go “up”.
That’s all for now. Loving the game, and I’m excited to get another 1/2 hour in tonight (been working SUPER long hours this week), and enjoying more Battle Chasers: Nightwar.
Thanks for the awesomeness so far! I can only imagine how great it would all be on a proper gaming machine …
