    Shit. I rushed to Ignadon because I thought becoming a Cleric wielding the Force for the glory of God was extremely compelling. I then dropped it after the game felt broken and incomplete. Did I play it wrong?

    No, it went horribly right.
    It's ok to experience such feelings after acquiring the powers from God.

    To play ELEX should I save money for a better computer or just playstation 4?

    Your PC should be able to run it, it's requirements are really low. I'd wait until you get a better PC because the PS4 port is weak.

    I always cherish these rare occasions when we are graced with a Darth Roxor review.

    Between this review and Ludo Lense 's video, ELEX has been bumped up my priority list in a significant way. Thanks for your work, bros.

    You can fly with a jetpack and incinerate everything from the air with your flame thrower. In Elex, YOU are the dragon!

    You mean there are Codexers, aka RPG Aficionados of the Highest Order that haven't played this game yet? Fascinating. :obviously:

    Pardon my bluntness but what the fuck are you all waiting for? It's RPGOTY 2017. Go play it, now.

    Can you though? Flamethrower is a heavy weapon and you cannot neither run nor jet with it IIRC.

    I've read ppl telling ELEX is a Fallout+Skyrim+any other open world AAA trite hybrid. Colour me no surprised they don't know any better.

    im only one hour into it and i just love lack of minimap. Feel so god damn lost its just beautiful.

    Inventory screen on the other hand is attrocious

    Despite i played gothics years ago and risen im still lost in combat. Button mashing is not working wich is great but i cant figure out why sometimes clicking left triggers attack while sometime without apparent visible reason it doesnt. Also something its wrong with distance. Coz sometimes attack works with enemy very far and other dont while having enemy close.. Must be me i dont know. And shooting from bow is a joke. And also evading with fast pressing arow keys is not working always as well at least in my case Anyway all good for now.

    And i hate the fact i cant climb damn ladders and that i cant even try to open those blue boxes. Not that game is lacking junk items on the contrary but still its frustrating

    Attack is usually timing - if you mash it too fast you'll feel like it's not doing anything. Also, stamina - you have very little stamina at start, so maybe you swing twice and get hit once, you're going to have low stam and you won't be able to attack. I'd say as a melee character getting that first level of stam skill is a high priority.

    Bow is a joke, same as every PB game. I would stick with melee.
