  1. As someone who staunchly loves big, epic, single-player cRPGs, I would normally disagree with having co-op in this. With that said, I do miss the days of local LAN parties playing Icewind Dale II. I remember creating characters until the early morning hours with my friends and then setting out on the adventure. Great times. Having like 3 or 4 computers in one room, all linked together was epic.
  2. Thank you for posting this, very disappointing (AGAIN) but at least its an update. Middle of June?? Geez. So much for having the book and mouse pad for when I play Deadfire first time around. Anyone know if some of this stuff is able to be cancelled at this point? I mean, I threw in the mouse pad to help support a little bit more, but it's something I really don't need, especially now.
  3. I have really missed good thunder and rain sounds in this game. I remember entering Gilded Vale for the first time and just sitting there for a while listening to the rain falling and the rolling thunder in the distance. It was so awesome. For whatever reason, the ambient sounds in this game just are not up to par. I still think ambient sounds need their own slider to adjust. Don't know why Deadfire doesn't have this option. I don't want to turn up the sound effects (don't need louder swords clashing, etc) just to hear the ambient noises better.
  4. Ohhhhh. I had no clue this is how it worked. I assumed all spells were based on what were in the book. So, if I have picked spells when I level up those are ALSO included on top of whatever book I choose to use as well? If so, it makes a lot more sense to me now. Up to this point, I hadn't changed a grimoire!
  5. I went Bear this time. Having a 5 member party vs a 6 member party had me worried. I needed another tank roll in there. In PoE I went with a Wolf. Was toying with the Lion this time, but I think (may be wrong) the roar ability was removed this time?
  6. Years from now, when I look back on this game, I won't be thinking about that awesome ship battle I had, or that great conversation modifier win that I had, or the quests I completed. No, it will be about One. Single. Naked. Blue. Orlan. #bestgameever
  7. I didn't back the statue, but I did get the book, mouse pad, figures and pen and paper kit. Really bummed it's taking this long. This stuff should have been here for day one. Anyone have an update on this? All I've seen was the email Obsidian sent me telling me the stuff wouldn't be ready for day one. That was a while ago.
  8. I want to replay PoE as well. Haven't completed it in well over a year. I actually forgot a lot of my choices when I started Deadfire. Problem is.....time. I seem to be having less and less of it lately. I haven't even been able to play Deadfire the past few days and I'm only like 27 hours in.
  9. Cool. I will say, I miss the days of rolling my character stats like in BG. I remember spending like 4 hours one time on dice rolls, trying to get that perfect character. Think we didn't start playing the game until like 2AM lol. Good times.
  10. LOL. I wish I was home so I could check this out. Immediately before a patch!
  11. I have a relatively good setup: CPU - 6600k Skylake 3.5ghz GPU - GeForce 1070 Memory - 16GB I've only had one crash so far. It was when I was leaving the four level dungeon not too far north from the game starting island. I run diagnostics when I play my game and with regard to heat, this one tops out at 73C for me, which is hotter than most other games that are far more graphically intense than this one. But, come to think of it, I've never heard my GPU fan kick on yet. Anyway, you should post specs of your PC and especially post this in the section for support.
  12. I get your frustration. I for one completely expected this (not that that's ok). But Obsidian has a track record of fixing and adjusting their games to be very excellent a few months down the road from release (not that that's ok). I for one am happy the game 1) Actually runs. 2) Have not encountered any major bugs (to me at least). I can start naming off a lot of games that 1) Didn't actually even work on launch day. 2) Were so poorly optimized on PC it was unplayable. 3) PC games that never get the fixes/optimizations they truly need.
  13. If it makes you feel any better, I came across Pellegina when I first entered Neketaka and she had some choice words for me. Needless to see, she never joined my party. I think it stems back to decisions I made in PoE. I never cared for her in that game, never used her in my party, and never completed her quest. Talk about holding grudges!
  14. So, not sure if you are aware, but Josh is making a pen and paper PoE roleplaying game. Not sure how the rules will be compared to D&D, but I'm sure it will be very similar. Can't wait to get my minis to paint! It's been a few years since I dabbled in the mini painting...
  15. With regard to sales, do we have a hard number on how many units sold during the FIG campaign? The game brought in almost $5 million in funding, but I know a portion of that was extras, like the book, pen and paper game, minis, etc. Seeing that the second game brought in more than the first, I would assume PoE 3 was green lit a while ago...
  16. It is most impressive. The questing has not gotten dull for me yet in that city. Originally, I had wanted to complete the whole city in one go, but after finding out this is the only major city in the game, I've explored one section at a time, then gone out to sea, completed bounties, quests, and generally explored more of the Deadfire. Neketaka has become almost like a hub for me. More so than my ship. I will say, I really, really loved Defiance Bay in PoE. Copper Lane was a huge map! Once I finish up Neketaka, I'll have a better idea which city I preferred.
  17. Play a ghost heart! But how are you getting your pet killed so much? I never got Ishiza killed outside party wipe caused by stupidity... Also, what kind of companion did you choose? I used the wolf in PoE and the bear in Deadfire. My bear has died a total of three times. Twice on full team wipes and once on his own, due to my failure to heal (I've manually healed the bear maybe twice). But I resurrected my bear and he was good to go. That thing is a tank.
  18. Nice review from a long-time cRPG fan. Stating from the beginning that BG2 is your all time favorite RPG gives you instant points in my book. Your assessment sounded fair (something SO lacking on the internet these days). While I have a long way to go to beat the game, I'm looking forward to more. I have a lot to explore still and can't comment on all your points. Here are some of my comments: The good: 1) The game is beautiful. Completely agree. I would love to see all the old Infinity Engine games get updated like this! 2) The music is growing on me. I'm really big into video game soundtracks and the first PoE blew me away. This one is slowly getting better (still need more ambient sounds!) 3) Completely agree! 4) Agree. It's growing on my more now. 5) I have enjoyed exploring. Just wish there was more "meat" to some of the maps so far. 6) Menu system is great! 5 man party is not great! 7) COMPLETELY agree! The bad: 1) N/A 2) I have zero problem with ship combat. In fact, I make it a point to sink ships. To me it's more fun than boarding and fighting 12-14 enemies. 3) It's Obsidian. It's a cRPG. Totally expected this. It will get better. 4) I'm fine with the combat. While I enjoy encounters, I prefer the exploration/story aspects of cRPGs.
  19. I disagree. As someone who passed on both D:OS games initially, when Deadfire release got pushed back, I bought both, and found myself playing 2 first after trying 1 out. I LOVE both games. I also love turn-based combat too. To me, both those games were a refreshing take on the isometric cRPG. When it comes to Obsidian though, I want them to keep to the traditional cRPG take. I'm liking Deadfire a lot, but for some reason both D:OS resonated with me more. I think it was just that there were things done in that game that I'd never seen done before in an isometric cRPG.
  20. I generally agree in your assessment of pirates. In fact, I'm not wanting to be a pirate in this game. Trying to be benevolent, etc. However, you need to go to the pirate isle where the pirate council resides. THAT is a cool room and the quest you get from the head pirate is awesome.
  21. OMG. I can't believe you people. How can Ranger have that many dislikes??? Out of my party of Me (Ranger), Xoti, Eder, Aloth, and the blue Orlan; I have the most kills. BY FAR. The DPS on a Ranger is sick and the aggro (is that even a thing in this game lol) my bear pulls is insane. Add to the fact that my bear hardly dies, is a bullet sponge, and knocks enemies on their tushes, should be proof enough that Ranger is not the worst class. Surely you people dislike Priest more than Ranger in this game?!?
