Speaking of Twitter, I find obsidian is not making an amazing job at promoting the game. 

 

They should be posting updates on there way more often. 

 

Not that I care hugely about social networks, but I really wish the game does well commercially.

This makes me think the release date is still too far, and the marketing campaign hasn't started. I'm sure they'll get up to speed once there is a month or two left to release.

No marketing campaign because of no marketing funds besides for the good trailers and a few interviews. Other than that, the Kickstarter money went into the development. The idea with Kickstarted games often is that the Kickstarter campaign itself as well as backers  later provide mouth-to-mouth propaganda automatically.

Of course there will be a marketing campaign. :lol:

Sorry if I'm spamming this, but it seems pretty important to me, and I'd rather spam you a little if that prevents someone from missing the news:

Paradox and Obsidian have also announced that this week they plan to reveal a wide array of never-before-seen game content via a live stream, hosted by Josh Sawyer, Project Director for Pillars of Eternity, alongside popular gaming personality Jesse Cox. The live stream will air Thursday, November 13 at 1pm PST (22.00 CET) on the official Paradox Interactive Twitch channel: www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive

I would be very interested to get a small summary of what comes out of your "play days". 

 

I think a lot of people would love to hear YOUR opinion on the current state of the game, what aspects you consider need the most work, and those that you are not likely to revisit until release. 

 

Emphasis mine. Agreed many times over though.

We don't need to be told what needs work, it's blatantly obvious while playing the beta.

 No its not. We are playing a small slice of the game. They may be playing a wider array of content across a wider array of levels using varying bits of itemization, abilities, and so on. Their perspective is much much different from ours.

You're entirely missing the point here Sensuki.

 

The devs might not necessarily WANT to change certain things despite the fact that YOU/WE might strongly disagree with them. And I think it's entirely fair. They're developing the game, they're calling the shots.

 

Now that does not mean that you, Sensuki, are not entitled to make suggestions and mods about whatever you want (I know you will anyway :p )

 

However, personally, I would rather like to give feedback were obsidian wants it, instead of wasting my time with suggestions that will not even be considered.

How on earth do you think change in the world occurs in the first place? Do you think you need to ask someone else's permission ?

I missed the stream, but you can watch it on twitch since it auto-records:

 

Part 1: http://www.twitch.tv...ive/b/588467303  (~17min)

Part 2: http://www.twitch.tv...ive/b/588477048  (~2:00hr)

 

Some spoilers for sure but they do their best to skip the major ones.
