  1. Ever since Obsidian brought back the fallout franchise from the dead I have been convinced that they are the best thing since sliced bread, I won't deny that. Even so there are flaws in every game they put out just like there are flaws in everything except mutt dogs with one upright and one floppy ear(those guys are the best) But I think that with some constructive criticism and with some time to make expansions, poe2 and hopefully some other games(something from white wolf perhaps) they are truly the guys to make games that I like.(hopefully other people will too but I'm looking out for numero uno ) the review from the codex is really annoying to me because it makes no effort to point out one good aspect of the game, or even a way to remedy the perceived flaws like a lot of people during the beta and **** me no matter who you are you can find something nice to say as long as it isn't about the star wars prequels. The game could use some improvements, well what game couldn't benefit from improvements, lets not pretend the game is a bag of **** because it has some flaws and attempts to have some personality within its genre ( semi historic weapons, engagement, everyone in plate etc)
  2. @TheisEjsing He may or may not deserve respect, and you might even consider him a bit dickish, but to imply that he's an **** who put in god knows how many hours into beta testing(seriously sensuki do you have a job? ) just to be able to **** on the game is stupid. I don't like a lot of what he posts but the man makes some fine ass points most of the time, and even when I don't agree I usually see how someone would think he was right. If you think his points are stupid ore exaggerated say that don't attack the guy because he's disappointed in a game he put hella hours in, that's like kicking a puppy.
  3. I think sensuki and stun are playing right into the "reviewers" hand by pointing out that his "gripes" are not actually as big of a deal as he makes them out to be...essentially what half of this thread is saying about the poe review, the problems pointed out exist but they aren't nearly as bad as they are being portrayed, or they are petty, unfounded or a matter of personal taste(not all of those at the same time). Saying either game is crappy based on the points presented is dumb, it might be under its maximum potential, or even flat out average but bad is an overstatement
  4. Only in game reactivity. It was much superior in combat encounters and fun options. I'll give you combat since it's a matter of preference between turn based and rtwp, but fun options... no freaking way does anything measure up to fallout(and especially fallout2) So fallout had 300 spells to choose from? Petrifing enemies? Poison, disease, hold, charm, enemies with invisibilty and the rest?No, I didn't think so. You could kill a guy in full power armour by throwing a lit road flare in his eye slit, that alone trumps any pansy ass spells,just kidding love the spells but flare to the eyes is more fun, you could plant explosives on people or inject them with drugs so they overdose and die, or wait for them to become addicts so they get penalties to combat. Melting people with plasma or lighting them on fire and watching them dance around were all pricelessly fun to me and casting petrify can hardly match up.

  6. I didn't get very far with it either. I played a little bit into the first city, decided I wasn't very happy with the builds I had chosen, but never mustered the will to restart. I also thought talking sea shells was a little hokey. I will hopefully go back to it at some point. It does seem like it has a lot of promise. The game is pretty bland as far as rpg-s go in single player, I gave it up in half an hour. But then I started playing co op with my brother and ho boy was the game a ton of fun. We sunk in time like we were kids with our first playstation game and with no memory card
  7. They could totally add two handed axes but the only way it would fit with the theme of weapons we already have is to make them something like a Dane axe or something like that. The classic fantasy two handed double bitted monstrosities would kind of feel out of place compared to the rest of the armoury. Of course a way out of this is to have one or two unique weapons in some categories which could look like something out of a comic book and they wouldn't seem too jarring since there would be so few. The weapon selection in this game hasn't been seen since Darklands in an rpg and it is really a breath of fresh air
  8. I feel like people are not getting that the pet is an integral part of the ranger class in PoE, if you just want to play an archer without a pet take a rogue or a fighter, just because it doesn't say ranger on the tin doesn't mean you can't play as one with a different class if a ranger is just an archer to you. As for the pet being easily killed, just don't send it into direct one on one(or one on many) combat have it annoy targets that are otherwise engaged and use the pet in tandem with your ranger not as just another meatshield, that even fits the whole animal companion theme, no way would a K-9 officer today send his dog to be gunned down that animal is his companion and partner not a weapon that he can easily replace if it breaks. In my mind a PoE ranger is no different, you need to work with the companion and not just randomly leave it somewhere or send it to die expecting it to be as durable as a human warrior in armour. Just like weapons armour and races PoE has it's own spin on the ranger, just give it a shot the way it's envisioned, a ranger with an animal companion, not with an animal weapon/servant
  9. They went with a more realistic/historic portrayal of weapons than many rpg-s, so while they would be nice and probably hella cool I doubt they would introduce them outside perhaps some sort of unique version of a poleaxe or hatchet, for example "The Axe of Grognak" The Estoc is a real type of triangular bladed sword good only for stabbing, like a big smallsword.
  10. My personal opinion has always been that being offended(especially on someone else's behalf) doesn't really carry any weight, I have been mocked and insulted by friends all my life and I did it back to them, I always tried to treat all people I met like standard adults and not be condescending if they are disabled or something and I would even rip on them if a good joke suggested itself. You being offended(by jokes or by "censorship") doesn't mean much since if we want to have an equal society everyone should be treated equally, if we tiptoe around what we say just so we don't say something like prices "rise" in front of a dwarf I suspect that would offend them much more since they are being treated like a child. So basically no special treatment for anyone, that also means you should try to not be a **** to anyone if they don't have it coming. On the other hand suggesting that people should boycott Obsidian for removing one poxy poem is patently absurd, I don't see what that has to do with anything, they made the bloody game and they can do what they like, if they think having it in isn't worth the bad PR, that's fine.If they decide to add or remove a class, also fine. Obsidian should be judged on the quality of their games and their writing, and not used for your amusement while waiting for a new episode of Game of Thrones.
  11. Just use a mod if it's so annoying. Btw. resting functions more or less the same way in pen and paper rpg-s, there is no way the GM will let you rest after every encounter so you would need to manage your resources at least a bit. In the IE games they used the same system only there was no GM(or other players) to tell you enough is enough. Random encounter=instant reload or minor annoyance. So you could abuse the system and rest every five feet if you wanted.
  12. seriously guys read this article http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-reasons-you-get-tricked-into-believing-stupid-things/ Maybe, just maybe it will make you consider not spewing vitriol. this goes for all sides of the argument.
  13. Guys, guys, the next generation of players has its own grognards now! All of the squees, guys. All of the squees. Damned grognards refusing to accept any changes
  14. This game doesn't have full voice acting?!?!?! Well there goes my purchase, who the hell would want to hear their own imagined voice in their head while reading, might as well drop acid or gods forbid even...read a book
  15. engage with fighter, flank and then backstab with rogue, pepper with debuffs to taste, voilà
  16. whoever still needs to argue over any sort of position on issues about limerics might want to check out this article http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-reasons-you-get-tricked-into-believing-stupid-things/ food for thought for anyone in any argument over anything really
  17. I don't know about all that, I was a kid playing the old fallouts and with the whole depraved world at my feet I just went around Jesusing and saving people and being a nice guy.(multiple identical playthroughs) Only recently have I started playing darker characters like slavers there. I'm guessing I would do the same with PoE as a kid.Hell I'd probably be doing it now if I wasn't waiting for a paycheck to buy the damn thing edit:I think it's more important what you(or your kids) actually do than what you can do. you CAN sacrifice a kid but I probably wouldn't even for a pretty good armour or whatever, even though it's just pixels.
  18. While I don't think swearing is inherently bad for kids, good on ya for doing something about it and not complaining someone else should. The only issue you might have is that at least some of the lines are voice acted and I am not sure how you can cut those out
  19. I am a supporter on the side of social justice(if that was even a term offline, more like rights and social security) for everyone but complaints like these are truly silly. Pretending that a resting bonus has anything to do with the perception of prostitution in real life has nothing to do with any kind of justice or any kind of society. It is just dumb. (although getting an STD and a resting malus instead would have been hilarious and it is a missed comedic moment).
  20. How did you even find out about the bonus, I presume you didn't have sex with her, so did you read it in a guide or something
  21. I sincerely hope you really mean what you are saying dude because I genuinely laughed out loud reading your comments and I would hate to think you are a troll.
  22. well I would have never gone to a prostitute in real life because I don't think I'd like to do it with a woman I'd never met for cash, but now I will definitely consider it just to get that sweet athletics bonus for my friday football games
