  1. On my first run, I named my last ship, a junk, the "Herald of Berath." On my second and current run, I named my current ship, a junk, the "Harold of Borat." Jagshemash! Hide the pain, Harold!
  2. Icewind Dale series was very linear, though. This game is way closer to Baldur's Gate 1 and it's open world gameplay. The main path in BG1 was actually very short, but there were a lot of places to explore to make up for it. Also, a lot of stuff in the main path was optional and there were multiple ways to go about it. Also, BG1 actually had very little to do with the overall plot of the Baldur's Gate series. BG1: Open world game where you eventually run into the main plot. TotSC: Not a full game, the equivalent of a DLC that adds several quests to the base game. BG2: Not-so-op
  3. It's definitely cool lore either way! It might come up in game 3. City of gold is something that I'd guess is Engwithin, but I feel like we've heard a similar reference before? I can't remember what the other line was because it's been a while. That makes a lot of sense, actually. I wonder if we'll ever visit those places in future games/DLCs.
  4. There are three crumbling realms you can visit prior to the dragon fight, but the pale elf paladin mentioned two others that were disintegrated. One was a city of gold and the other... I can't remember because I didn't take a screenshot. I normally play with the Steam overlay on and couldn't remember in time what the screenshot hotkey in PoE 2 was without the overlay. Is this just a throwaway line or will those two crumbled realms eventually be relevant? I get the feeling that the city of gold is Engwith itself, while the other one might be a reference to Rekke's people. What do you th
  5. Steam says the update is 2.9 GB but I have 5.79 GB free on my SSD. However, Steam refuses to download the update because it thinks I don't have enough disk space. Is there any way to fix this? Can I download the update manually? Edit: I accidentally mouseovered the Steam download text and it shows 11.6 GB. I assume that the download is only 2.9 GB but the game needs 11.6 GB to move things around. I will try to clear up around 11.6 GB to see if it will work. Edit 2: It is downloading now. I was right; the file is only 2.9 GB but the game needs 11.6 GB to patch the game by moving files a
  6. For one, I would like a mod to skip the damned tutorial level. It's like Chateau Irenicus all over again, except that there's no Dungeon Begone mod to let you skip the entire thing. I don't know why Obsidian loves these frustratingly long and mandatory early levels instead of opening up the game world sooner.
  7. The tutorial is painfully long, and while it is one of the best tutorials I have ever experienced in a video game, being forced to play it over and over again has ruined all of its appeal to me. Heck, while we're at it, can we have something like Baldur's Gate where you have a choice where to start the adventure? 1. Baldur's Gate 1 2. Baldur's Gate 1: Siege of Dragonspear 3. Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn 4. Baldur's Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal Imagine having to replay BG1 just to get to SoD and then to SoA and then to ToB. The game would've been really boring and repetitive. F
  8. This is an Obsidian game. Expect wonderful storytelling, roleplaying, characterization, and core gameplay, but also horrible technical issues. Kind of like Bethesda. Obsdian Fortress: Crashing is Fun. Disclaimer: I haven't experienced any crashes post-WM2, just game-breaking bugs like in that video I posted yesterday.
  9. I didn't go for Triple Crown Solo. I went for Triple Crown (not solo). Triple Crown = Path of the Damned, Expert Mode, Trial of Iron Triple Crown Solo = Path of the Damned, Expert Mode, Trial of Iron, Solo I have no problem with micromanagement. In fact, my favorite hero in DotA 2 is Chen, the most micro-heavy hero. I have a problem with how swingy the combat in PoE is, especially how rough the flow of battle goes. I actually didn't die in combat, because I'm pretty good at PoE combat. My game was also still active when I uninstalled. I just lost 1/4 of my current gameplay due to tech
  10. Against my better judgment, I started a new run. Triple Crown. I just lost my entire fourth session because PoE went FUBAR, and now I have a huge chunk of gameplay missing. If this game had a checkpoint system, I could've salvaged my run. Good thing it happened in the last quarter of Act 1. Good thing it happened early so I don't have to waste my time on this game. Seriously, Obsidian, you guys are awesome at storytelling, but your programming and gameplay and quality of life features leave much to be desired. I'm going to be blunt here: the only reason I play PoE (or any Obsidian game) is
  11. Hello there... It's been a while since I last played PoE, and I haven't found the motivation to start another run. Basically, I was doing a Let's Play with post commentary, but my hard drive had to be reformatted and I lost all of my gameplay footage. I don't want to slog through the linear grind that is Act 1 all over again. Actually, that's what I came here to talk about. The thing I really, really dislike about PoE is the bottleneck at the Stronghold. Basically, you have to go through the Stronghold and complete its main quest in order to unlock the rest of the game, which then gives yo
  12. I was initially excited about the addition of multiclass feats, thinking that I'd be able to do D&D 4e style multiclassing, but was disappointed to learn that you could only take one multiclass feat per class. In D&D 4e, you could take four feats: 1. Multiclass Feat - One free skill + an at-will power 1/encounter or an encounter power 1/day from your second class. 2. Encounter Power Swap - Trade one of your class's encounter powers for an encounter power of your second class. 3. Utility Power Swap - Ditto for utility powers. 4. Daily Power Swap - DItto for daily powers. PoE
