Our videos of Troll and I

Troll and I is a low-budgeted game trying to propose an action-adventure experience borrowing from AAA titles, with Uncharted-styled platforming, crafting and cooperation with an AI (or a friend - local only). The main problem with such titles is that their technical limitations can weigh down on their potential, which is more or less what seems to be happening here. Character models and animations are too dated to make the game truly immersive, though the environment itself looks ok overall - provided you don't mind real-time growing grass. Gameplay mechanics are also too stiff and clunky from what we've seen, and contrary to a game like Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, it seems to fail to deliver when it comes to atmosphere. Now don't take our word for it and check out our videos to let us know what you think. The game is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One (and soon on Switch).

While reading the technical problems, I immediately thought of Mass Effect: Andromeda, which is a part of the problem with that game.

As for this game, it looks bad imho. And the title, while accurate, feels like it's celebrating the internet's worst users. Styx: Shards of Darkness and Technomancer are examples of games that manage to do great things in spite of the low budget.

this is from the guys behind such polished classics are "alekhines gun" and "Lichdom: Battlemage" and the VR masterpeice "Loading Human"

lol, yeah, i'd stay way clear of this.

    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (11 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (14 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (14 Hours ago)

    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (14 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (19 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (19 Hours ago)
