  1. I played a paladin at launch and had a lot of problems. I didnt beat the game even. Now I am playing a paladin and that class is very much improved. I have almost beat it and had a great run through the game with no bugs. I think eventually modders will get their hands on this game too. It'll be well taken care of for years I bet.
  2. yeah.... ahh sounds like you're describing a game that'll sell 100 copies if u buy 3 of em. maybe I read it wrong.
  3. its funny hearing people complain about how easy the combat is and others how hard it is. my party has 2 paladin's in it cause my daughter thinks the lady with feathers on her head is pretty. If I can manage anyone can manage if they try harder. I dont understand people complaining about how easy a game is and also power game the whole thing. solo it as a chanter if it's so damn easy.
  4. Did you play Age of Decadence, Serpent in the Staglands and Underrail?Because if you didn't, you didn't play the best RPGs in 2015. i havent played AOE but the other 2 ...... u honestly think Serpent in the staglands is better? since when did not having a god damn game journal count as progress or 'good'. Underrail... for game of the year.... yeah... nope. both great games and they may have won game of the year in 1996 I think Pillars is better. to each their own.
  5. to each their own. This post was to sound of if you think it's game of the year. not that i'd ever tell people how to post but lets assume I mean it's the CRPG of the year. I realize the game is not everyone's cup of tea. For me personally its sucha great game because I complained to friends for 15 years that there hasnt been a truly great DnD style CRPG since baldurs gate. I am a huge fallout fan. I play 1 and 2 at least once every 2 years sometimes twice in a year. still as great as Fallout 4 is I'd give Pillars GAME OF THE YEAR hands down. Fallout 4 is console fodder ...shoot everyone
  6. man sounds like the game just hasn't really sucked you in. I highly doubt you play on super hard settings. Why power game it and complain about it. Don't respect characters, I wasnt even aware of this option and i'd never use it. Load your party with companions you like regardless of classes. NEVER go back to town to restock. ROLE PLAY. Play as a character, that's what I do the game is perfect for that. Camping supplies seems like 2 or 4 is a barren wasteland when u dont go back into town during an adventure. I highly doubt after u break into a place u could leave for a week and come back. So
  7. i like D:OS but the neverwinter nights style immersion breaking game mechanics and campy style just isnt my thing. It doesn't take itself too seriously which for some is good. For a RPG fantasy game it might not be the best. I think it's a great game but so is warcraft 3 and I dont like that either. there's just different types of games out there. I bought it on day 1 and played it through and enjoyed it. Pillars of Eternity invaded my dreams and work life. It's an all time great RPG that I think in the next few years will be seen as a revolution in CRPG gaming and in the industry as a whole
  8. God DOS the art direction in that game makes so hard to feel any immersion. I dont see how that engine could be separated from it either. It's an OK game but it's not as good pillars by a long shot. It's campy and doesnt have good story telling or RPG mechanics. it's like a Mario brothers game as far as the mechanics, combat, and the game world are concerned
  9. Here's a topic for all of us to declare our vote for Pillars of Eternity game of the year 2015 Fallout 4... sorry I'm a RPG nut and that game took no risks whatsoever. Almost none of the features in that game are based in good RPG story telling or mechanics. good game maybe great not so much I've played practically every RPG made in 2015 and Pillars has my vote for game of the year. good work guys.
  10. the limited resources are a well thought out and well implemented system. I agree maybe there's a place or two we could find more camping supplies. anyone that's played a great game of table top RPG knows that those great adventures are the ones that resources are pressed. Where all your guys are down and u gotta figure out how to deal with situation creatively cause u cant blow ur last fireball. When you gotta drag a friend back to a priest you met earlier but there's a horde of orcs chasing u. Having to rely on a rouge with 4 hp left sneak attacking a bad guy or you're all %&$*ed. That
  11. I find the stash to give better immersion than any alternatives in similar games. Makes more sense than a character trudging around with stuff that would realistically weight 1000 pounds (3 sets of plate mail? 5 great swords 10 potions couple of robes and boo's exercise ball? really gonna carry that around? they stash the good somewhere before moving on. As they "travel" they throw it in a cart and stash it somewhere else. Maybe they could have added a cart or a donkey (named bill), a caravan... but ahhh.. yeah I'd prefer some more stories or a cool quest. Making a game is all about resour
  12. Playing this game through again after 6 months. I thought maybe at first I was too ready to like and thus my review of the game was flawed... so I've played it again with a more critical approach I tried and failed. This isn't a review the game is too good to review I've lost my objectivity. The art direction of this game is the best I've seen in a CRPG fantasy game. It is stunning how beautiful a simple computer game can be. The zone and the buildings and just beautiful. The combat is interesting albeit needing some gdamn scripts. I hate ordering someone to do something and have it n
  13. so this isometric throw back blast from the past game nearly melted my computer. Whats the deal with it causing uncontrolled system over heating? I did have the IEMOD installed but I turned if off and it still hit 65-70 in 20-30 minutes of play. I play Skyrim at MAX setting with a **** ton of graphic mods and it stays at 51 max 58 I've turned the FPS all the way up and all the way down neither worked i've changed the resolution I tried talking out loud to it about cold things is the super speed that's doing it? increasing the speed in the game. I know IEMOD has super doop
  14. I find this class to be really cool. It reminds me of Darksun old SSI crpg My first play through ongoing right now is with a cipher as the main is it possible to be a cipher with good melee skills ? like a fighter/mage ? also let me just say this game is awesome. I think it's better than Divinity original sin (which is also great) the RPG is mkaking a comeback
