  1. Talk to the NPCs. They have their own lives that go on as you progress the game. It has nothing to do with you, it's something very easy to miss, and yet the creators still wrote thousands of lines that 90%+ of players never see. Also, the world building is pretty great but they don't just dump all of it on you at once. You have to play father into the series.
  2. I could see it being potentially profitable depending on the religion.
  3. Is it worth clicking on this buttplug video?
  4. More sequels to bad 90's movies? Why, Hollywood? When you were doing sequels to 80's movies at least the original movies were good.
  5. I'm holding out hope that Microsoft buys the rights for Tyranny outright. I don't think Paradox will actually use them and I'm not sure how much their bean counters will value the property at. Honestly, I don't think it'd cost them that much, relatively speaking. I think there's plenty of room for Obsidian to make games for two different fantasy franchises especially since they're so stylistically different.
  6. I'm sensing a concerning pattern between this and your description of playing Cult Simulator.
  7. ...I haven't seen the history channel in over 15 years.
  8. Yeah. They even took the spell casting UI almost wholesale from BaK. But, that is why I'm interested. For anyone wondering, there is a closed beta for Call of Saregnar but seeing as that trailer is from 3 years ago and the project's only survived because of Petron support, the game's probably still a long ways off.
  9. I don't think it was originally planed as a trilogy but given that the second game is a direct sequel and it ends in a cliffhanger, everyone, including myself, expects a POE3 to finish up the Watcher's story.
  10. Finished Dragon Age: Inquisition and all it's DLC a few days ago. Just in time for my computer to get repaired. DA:I was alright but I can say that if I ever replay it I'll never play vanilla again.
  11. Japanese, German group mating? Think I saw that one.
  12. Gothic 4 was so bad it made me reconsider Skyrim, which I initially hated.
  13. I'm leaving this typo 'cause it pleases me thing.
  14. Absolutely it can be improved, but what made it terrible was that it was the exact opposite in tone to the original Gothic. OG Gothic starts out with you being read your rights, an official interrupts to hand you a scroll to take to the mages, official tells you doing so the mages will reward you, you agree and get tossed into the pond at the bottom of the cliff. Dragging yourself to the shore, you meet one of the old camp followers who lifts you up by the collar and punches your lights out. Then you meet Diego who makes it clear that the only reason he's being nice is 'cause he's there t
  15. I played the demo last year. It was terrible. I'll stick to the original with mods.
  16. Of course they eat dogs, 'cause there can be only one.
  17. RedBird Capital (aka, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia) are talking with the CFL about their opportunities going forward. This smells like a hostile takeover to me and I'm not alone as twitter's running wild with theories about a CFL/XFL merger. As a fan of both leagues (go, Saskatchewan Roughriders) I love this idea. I just hope that if a merger does happen they keep the Canadian rules as I don't see either league having much success grabbing a US market using NFL rules without NFL talent.
  18. Renpy is super easy to use. I messed around with it like a decade ago and quickly set up a scene with branching choices.
  19. I am a bookworm and since my computer died I've been getting more reading in, too. Nothing educational but whatever I find lying about my sister's house and since she has two preteens they're mostly YA novels and the like. But no, I'm not reading the tie in novels. I always need money.
  20. Forgot to mention I played the dlc for DA2, as well (playing all the dlc in each game is a part of the challenge). Legacy was alright with a good boss fight at the end where my healer and off tank went down almost immediately so I had to do the entire fight without half my party. Mark of the Assassin felt like a guest celebrity episode of a sitcom. By the end my grumpy mage hate Felicia Day or whatever her name was. Which was funny 'cause they tried so hard to make you think the character is awesome. I'm guessing Mark of the Assassin is where BioWare got the idea for Diana Allers as they
  21. A little over a month ago my computer overheated. With nothing but my Switch and my nephew's Xbox One to occupy my time, I decided to replay the Dragon Age games. Origins was great. I forgot how dark some of the notes and codex get and about the slog in the middle. I played a human rogue, didn't romance an companion (though I did hookup with several NPCs), never recruited Zevran (my family had just been assassinated so I wasn't feeling merciful), betrayed Alistair, married Anora, tried to get Logain to do the dark ritual but must've missed the right dialog prompt and had to do all the hea
