Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning attacks a host of bugs in its latest patch

So, how is Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning treating you? Are you finding it a pale reboot of an otherwise OK game? Are you playing it to try to make Project Copernicus come back? Or are you just enjoying the final vestiges of 38 Studios? And if you are, how many bugs have you run in to? Ideally, after this latest patch, that list of bugs will be lessened.

This patch addresses a variety of problems including blackened minimaps (which are probably not deliciously Cajun-spiced), invisible character parts, fixes for a number of the game’s quests, and some overall stability improvements. There’s also been a little update to crash dump files that put a handy-dandy ID next to the exe. Isn’t that nice.

This is the fourth of such crash-focused patches added to the RPG since it released in September, so if you’ve been halted by some sidequest weirdness or were hoping for some more fixes to arrive before hopping in, perhaps now’s as good a time as any.

It’s a ridiculously fun game, sadly overlooked or quickly dismissed. Glad it’s getting the attention it deserves. It’s a pleasure to play and I’m glad it’s back on the menu.

The combat is just so much fun.

If I bought the old version of the game recently does that mean I’m grandfathered into owning the new version?

grinds teeth

Blackened fish are not part of traditional Cajun cooking. That is a New Orleans thing invented in the 1970s, and Cajuns don’t blacken shit

Wow, I didn’t know it, but super impressed they added massively multiplayer to this. Can’t believe that was so under the radar in the update.

The remaster is really good. It runs so much better than the one version and looks better too. The patches really make a difference here. Loading screens were on the long side and they have improved also. The game is worth the 40 bucks you pay because it also comes with all the DLC and packs that you paid separately for. If people are having issues with it crashing or running badly it usually is something wrong on their side or they are trying to run it on a toaster. The system specs are not as low as the old version of the game.

yeah, because a lack of content was the biggest issue this game ever had.
They increased the render distance on the remaster and the engine can’t handle that in all locations. This has nothing to do with pc power, but everything to do with the new devs asking the engine to do something it wasn’t built for.

Side note: can we as pc gamers just stop with the “the game runs fine on my pc, and because of that the game is perfect and anyone having issues are liars/morons”

I never called anyone a liar or moron. And the game is getting positive reviews from steam and gog. Most people are not having what seems like the same issues that some are having and questions are being asked about systems being used. It’s a known fact that some older games also do not run well on high-end modern systems.

I’m really sorry. That was never meant as an attack on you. I just see the notion in general on steam forums a lot

Steam forums can be very harsh. I bought the game at GOG and the forum there is very different and most helpful.

I bought it, but I haven’t played it yet. I enjoyed the first version, and the additional future story content sold me on the remaster.

Charging 40$ for this version is a borderline scam. Game runs worse than the old version while looking the same, and nothing has been done to the cumbersome and archaic UI.
