  1. Hi Dan, Just wanted you to know that I finally got my replacement painted figurines. It took ages for them to arrive, but they are now here in the Philippines. I'm very happy you sent these as a replacement to the ones that got crushed flat by whoever handled the last package. Thank you for addressing my issue and I'll be sure to support you on PoE:III. You folks made a great game with great items to come with it. Awesome work! PS: Please include a physical CD on the physical copy next time. Best regards,
  2. Dan got in touch with me and I received my order around three weeks ago. The hoodie was good and the steelbook case was intact. Unfortunately, the package was crushed in transit, and the painted pewter figurines went bent and one snapped off its base. It was unfortunate so I contacted Dan and they are sending in a replacement. Albeit, to cut costs, the replacement package is being sent without a tracking number. As for the soundtrack, it arrived in excellent condition about a few days ago.
  3. As someone who played Neverwinter Nights 2, Fallout: NV, bought and backed PoE 1 and 2, I am very disappointed at this news. I've always thought of Obsidian as one of the greatest remaining gaming companies around. This is why I have alwyas supported their kickstarter projects. Knowing how corporate culture works, I know for a fact that the quality of games from Obsidian will now diminish and begin to focus more on monetization and bad business practices. Forget about PS4 and Windows 7, it's now GFWL and XBOX. PC players will now have to deal with console menus and substandard ports. Here's how things can possibly happen: 1.) Obsidian stocks will soar in value early on. More jobs in the company will open. 2.) The corporate culture from the top of Microsoft , over the years, will begin to trickle down on Obsidian. 3.) Obsidian will stop the use of crowdfunding to fund its games. 4.) Obsidian will stop publishing on Steam, GoG and non-Microsoft platforms. Only GFWL in Windows 10 and XBOX One, alienating its PC fanbase. 5.) Intrusive DRM will be present on all Obsidian games for PC. Including Denuvo. 6.) There will be a slow but gradual shift from making quality single player games to "live services" with MMO-style multiplayer elements. 7.) Quality games ready on release will be the lesser focus. The greater focus will be on monetization of the latest Obsidian "live services". Expect the entry of microtransactions, lootboxes, card packs and other recurring revenue streams. 8.) Obsidian will be weaponized against Sony, PS4 and other consoles. It will be the priority, not PC gaming and certainly not time-consuming quality gaming development. 9.) There will be more political correctness and SJW elements in Obsidian games. There will be less interesting adult and mature stories that have depth. 10.) Future Obsidian releases will be dumbed down to appeal to the masses of XBOX One players who do not have the skill, maturity and attention span of more mature PC and console players. This is done to appeal to a broader audience. 11.) More focus on mobile gaming. 12.) Because Obsidian is now owned by Microsoft, they will no longer be allowed to take development jobs from other publishers (i.e. no more Fallout: NV 2 from Bethesda) 13.) Stake, shareholders and profits will be the priority. Not quality games and certainly not the gamers. 14.) The titles that make the most money will be prioritized, not the titles that fans ask for. 15.) Eventually, Faergus and the geniuses at Obsidian will leave the company because their creative vision will be discarded to accelerate product development. Anybody who doesn't agree with constant revenue streams and milking the fanbase will be let go of. 16.) Obsidian will be developing games that are not its specialization (i.e. not story-driven). 17.) Pillars of Eternity 3 will be released. It will have much less depth, scope, quality, and length than Pillars of Eternity 2, which will be remember by fans as the greatest Pillars of Eternity game, just like Dragon Age Origins was for the Dragon Age series. 18.) Obsidian becomes like Bioware. 19.) Obsidian will either separate from Microsoft or go the way of Ensemble, Fasa Studios and Lionhead.
  4. You did notice the seperate page they built for such messages? The last message I read from there mentioned that pretty much every package has been sent forward from Ship Naked and if you haven't received your shipment info you should contact Ship Naked by email and they will send re-send you the tracking information. I didn't notice the page they created for such messages. Would it be possible for you to post the link? Also, I've already sent ship naked a message through their website. No response so far.
  5. I've already sent a message to Obsidian's facebook page and I'm still not getting anything. 4 plus months after the release of the game, this is just very poor communication on the part of Obsidian if they can't send even a proper status update to their backers.
  6. I've already sent a support ticket to obsidian 6 days ago. Still no response. Any update on my order? I'd like to know because our post office here in the Philippines is notorious. I'd probably have to visit them to remind them to deliver my package or it will sit in the post office for two months, if you can believe that. So knowing in advance is critical for me.
  7. Hi Dan, Any news on my order? I'm from the Philippines and we still have "Shipping Soon" status on my order.
  8. Hi Dan, I'm a backer from the Philippines. Would it be possible to get an update on the status of my items? I haven't received them until now, my shipment status is still "shipping soon" and I haven't received any emails about this whatsoever. I'd like to know if they are already on their way.
