  1. Hopefully this ends up being nothing more than a rumor. If Microsoft does buy them out, I guess we can look forward to playing the dumbed-down Pillars of Eternity 3: Backfire.
  2. a) Poe's Law applies. b) Satire is not immunity from criticism. c) Not noticing satire is not immunity from not being made no fun of. I've learned about double negatives in school, but never about quadruple negatives.
  3. Perfect! The first megaboss is a spider. There's nothing I hate more than spiders. I wish they would leave loot when I kill them in real life.
  4. Whenever I have the choice, I buy games on GOG. The option to only update games when I want is one of the main factors for me. It's important if the game is moddable since I don't have to worry about an update breaking mods.
  5. You mean the first Baldur's Gate? Yes, and it sucked ass. Basically everyone in that game was like a Deadfire sidekick, even characters important to the story. Why would you want something so bland. I was mainly meaning Baldur's Gate 2. I can't remember BG1 enough. :|
  6. If that's the case, I'd really like to see the removal of the relationship system in future games - it sounds like an awful lot of work for relatively little gain from a player perspective, and if it precludes the upgrading of sidekicks to full companions then that's a strong net loss imo. New sidekick content is nice, but I'm really hoping for at least another proper companion out of the season pass given that PoE1's DLCs gave us 3. I agree. I don't need a relationship system to know whether companions like or hate each other. Their responses in conversations and the bantering with one another are enough for me to tell. Baldur's Gate had companions like and hate each other (even to the point of eventually fighting) without a complex relationship system. When I first heard about the relationship system during the Fig campaign I was excited because I thought companions would be better and feel more important in the story. After playing Deadfire though, I don't feel like the companions are deeper or more fleshed out vs the first game.
  7. I have this problem no matter who is in my party. It's not real bad for me though since I hold the highlight objects button down while trying to leave a map. It seems to help a lot.
  8. If you mean turn all setting down, yes No, he/she means this: https://steamcommunity.com/app/560130/discussions/0/2572002906843374108/
  9. Overpowered! It would have spells from all schools: Banana Peel (slicken) Necrotic Banana Banana Image Bounding Bananas Banana Skin Banana Shower Might be a fun and silly mod to make all spells about bananas. More fun spells: Kalakoth's Minor Bananas Concelhaut's Parasitic Banana Ghost Bananas Curse of Blackened Banana (My personal favorite because this happens in real life) Form of the Helpless Banana Banana of Many Colors
  10. I'm thinking they meant 7/28/18. It's the same timeline image that they posted on the last update about 2 weeks ago.
  11. The text is kinda small, so it could be my eyes failing me but the current timeline image has "UPDATED 8/28/18" at the bottom. That would be in the future.

  13. I agree with what you said except that single class gets exclusive access to 7 - 9 tier powers. Multiclass can reach tier 7 so single class only gets exclusive access to tiers 8 and 9.
  14. I've never had inventory lag in PoE 1 unless I had tons of stuff in my stash. After selling most of what was in my stash, the lag would be gone. I haven't yet had inventory lag in Deadfire, but I've been selling stuff from my stash pretty regularly.
  15. I don't like social media either, but having the poll here wouldn't reach enough people. I just make a twitter and facebook account that I don't use except for stuff like this. There are plenty of other companies that use social media for things like this too.
  16. I'm fine with either way as long as it's done right. I love post game DLCs like Blood and Wine for Witcher 3 or Awakening for Dragon Age: Origins. However, I also like DLCs during the main game too if it's integrated properly and feels seamless instead of separate.
  17. Modwyr becomes unique if you remove her soul. If you don't, then it stays soulbound. Also, soulbounds are not trash just because there is a better alternative. Something can still be good even though there is a better alternative. Trash means that they are terrible.
  18. Good point. I've edited my post the fix my mistake You hid the word "Spoilers" with "Spoiler".
  19. I really like the free spell per power level that Priests and Druids get. I'd love to see Wizards get a free spell per power level based on their subclass, like Evokers getting an evocation spell each power level. It would give more incentive to using a subclass for Wizards.
