  1. Sorry for digging this up, but I'm really frustrated. All the trouble in Nyrissa's home, and what happens? It's the final chapter. I'm ready for the final battle, but my game keeps crashing during the cutscene after I've given the order to go to the city. Always at the same second. Tell the final boss they've won. I'm giving up for now.
  2. There's a new Trailer for Corven, a game in the spirit of Ultima. It even has the original Lord British, but that is pretty much everything Richard Garriott has to do with it.
  3. I always say that the best RPGs don't try to satisfy fans of a certain classics but stand on their own feet. This one has potential. Let's hope the developers will make a good game.
  4. I know that feeling all too well, but I've never finished NV before. I got ill, my computer broke down etc. Now I've started over because I couldn't relate to the old character anymore. I couldn't even remember how I've played her. And I still have to finish Divinity: Original Sin because my old computer couldn't handle the snow in the other world. I have to finish Wasteland 2, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, and Final Fantasy VI because during all three of them I got bored somewhere along the way and felt more like playing something else. Also, I still have to play Torment: Tides of Numenera, Divinity 2 (not OS2), Shadow Run Returns, Dragon's Dogma, and Tales of Symphonia. And those are just the newer ones I've already bought. Not to mention a few classics I've missed back in the day, like Ultima Underworld. Oh, and I want to replay Pillars of Eternity because I'm not satisfied with my character anymore, so I want a new one to import into Deadfire. How did I manage to fall so far behind? Well, after all those enemy armies in Mass Effect 2 I was tired of fighting. Nothing that contained any combat appealed to me for long. That phase lasted a couple of years, but now I'm back with all my heart. I have to hurry, because next year is packed with promising RPG releases. Fortunately, I rarely buy at release day, so I'll get the new ones cheaper later on. If I can resist Cyberpunk for that long.
  5. It has one, but that part works a lot better in this game than in Secret of the Silver Earring. Just crouch and you'll be fine. I'm currently replaying Fallout: New Vegas.
  6. Actually, Charles Cecil told the German website Adventure-Treff that it was going to be point and click with classic puzzles. Maybe he makes the trailers look more modern to trick other people into giving the game a chance. Either that, or he was lying.
  7. Baldur's Gate: Day of the Tentacles Now can we please talk about how you'll be able to set chairs on fire and use them as a weapon in a tavern brawl? That's so Larian.
  8. In no particular order: -Realms of Arcania Trilogy (my first RPG love) -Baldur's Gate Saga (please don't mess this up, Larian) -Morrowind (the freedom, the atmosphere of the world) -Arx Fatalis -Arcanum -Divine Divinity -King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow -Planescape: Torment -Fallout 1 and 2 -Anachronox -Scratches -Darkness Within 1 -The Dig -Broken Sword 1 and 2 -Gabriel Knight 1 and 3 -Anno 1602 aka 1602 A.D.
  9. About the upcoming change of the copyright in the EU: Fellow EU citizens, I'm sorry for being German. But I can assure you, I have never voted for the CDU, and I despise Axel Voss and his ignorance with a passion. Nobody here wanted this new law, and even the smaller artists aka creators are demonstrating against it. Unfortunately, Axel Voss, the guy behind this new law, is Donald Trumps soulmate. He said that our democracy is in danger, because apparently American companies are spreading misinformation on the new laws, and have bought thousands of demonstrators. That's not true. And if he knew anything about the internet, he'd understand why ยง13 won't work without forcing youtube to use upload filters, that will endanger the freedom of speech. (A law that I'd really welcome would be a regular mental health check for all active politicians, but I'm afraid that'll never happen)
  10. Nice. I hope it will be good.
  11. That's nonsense, given speed in which they're releasing fairly major features, it's quite obvious that Epic never really intended to release all client features at once - I'm willing to bet most of these features are baked into the client in various stages of development already, it's just a QA nightmare to release software with all of its bells and whistles enabled from the get go. It makes much more sense to spread features out into a bigger time period to ensure that the basis on which said features are built upon is fleshed out. I'd also like to point out that the client is not in any way broken - feature incomplete and broken are two very different things. Edit: Not offering refunds is BS and, again, violation of European law, but - y'know, they'll sort that out, they don't really have much of a choice in the matter itch.io - those small devs get a much bigger cut and more freedom in how they want to price their product over there as well. Itch.io also strongly discourages sale of Steam key and instead semi-forces developers to upload standalone installers You're either using Windows or are concerned about your privacy when using software. Yes, the two are mutually exclusive. I hope you don't have an Android phone/iPhone as well as drawing a line at Epic store would be line drawn so far nobody'll see it - "Corporations can have all my telemetry on PC and phone usage, my precise location at any point in time and details like that, but damn them if they'll ever get my gaming habits down! ... I mean, outside of Steam. Steam can have those of course." You won't change my mind. You can love epic as much as you want, you can even date sweeney, if you like, but mark my words: As soon as they've defeated Steam, with my dear GoG being colleteral damage, they'll cut the percentage for the developer and stop caring about the customer at all. They're not the good guys. There are no good guys with the big players, and I consider Steam the much lesser evil for me. I have bought games on Steam when Itch.io wasn't even a thing. Which doesn't mean that I hadn't checked out Itch.io before. And no, I don't have such a phone. I don't have Facebook, or Instagram, or Twitter, or Whatsapp, or whatever you want. I have a certain degree of privacy left. You, obviously, don't. I'd rather stop gaming entirely than install Epic, unless they change their data policy to my liking. Then, and only then, I might buy there. Maybe you don't mind being the willing consumer puppet of shady companies like that, but I do. And with Windows, I can at least pretend that my data isn't willingly handed over to a repressive government that doesn't give a dog's mess on human rights. You're not changing my mind, because I'm too stubborn for you, so stop waisting your time trying. I'm done with this discussion, and now I might just as well read a good old fashioned book. Printed on paper, without illegal data mining and totally unplugged.
  12. A thing that's worse doesn't make another bad thing good. Also: We are living in the future. If you could show a digital assistend to the inventor of the first computer in his invention's early days, it would blow his mind. No flying cars, though.
  13. If that's what you primarily care about, you should not have supported a publisher that won't allow you to download standalone installers. Besides, even if Valve goes under, Steam is at this point too valuable to drop off the face of the Earth. The moment Valve gets done for, Steam'll be almost certainly bought and maintained by someone else. Well, I hope so. And excuse me for supporting small indie projects that not even GoG wanted, because they were too small for them. Also, my main concern is the fact, that Epic reads the data of other installers, mainly Steam. That data is none of their business. Steam's collecting enough data on its own. I don't want another platform that gathers even more information than Steam, Origin, Windows, and who knows what other big programs do without telling the users. I'm drawing the line right where they start reading each other's data. That's what I really dislike. I don't trust anyone, but I trust Epic even less.
  14. I can wait. And if it doesn't come on Steam or GoG, I'll congratulate Microsoft for finally making me buy something from their store. Epic ist even more hungry for data that is none of their business than all other platforms combined. And think of all the games you will lose if Epic manages to ruin Steam.
  15. Great. Now I can't even enter the huts in the village of the lizard people anymore. Time to reinstall. And if that doesn't help, I'll just have to wait till I have the money for a new computer and try again from the start there. Edit: Wow, I had very little hope that it would work, but it did! Now I can play on.
