  1. Now he even knows how "PoE 2 get a pass despite having the same problem" when he didn't even work on it. At this rate, next week he will talk about how PoE 3 is an awful game and Obsidian's upper management is paying the critics to praise it.
  2. Ashley Johnson is doing the narrator's voice during the start of the game. So that's why she only voiced a sidekick instead of a companion.
  3. Before it sounds like bad communication and management leads to tension and people at each other's throat. Now all I can think of is "Mr Chris Avellone,if every thing you said is true, you should be talking with a lawyer about suing Obsidian's ass off on the day you leave, instead of posting on a forum years later."
  4. That's exactly why this story doesn't add up. EDIT: Unless as some say above pretty much everyone hated him and voted him out with their combined controlling interest in the company. But in his story somehow Feargus (AKA Moloch the Devourer) can just magically make this happen on his own. Even they voted him out, they don't really de-ownered him though, you can't vote one's stake in the company out without paying him. He won't have a say in the management for sure, but he will still have his stake. Unless he quit in response to being “de-ownered” which is what he said he did. Someone at Obsidian must be legendery at persuation if they can talk Chris into agreeing "giving up all the stake he has, all the money he should receive based on his stake, and didn't sign a NDA yet didn't tell everyone how evil Obsidian is right out the gate"
  5. I find it absurd that lots of people claiming Obsidian tries to use the non compete clause to "ban Chris from doing RPG ever again." Even someone is careless enough to sign such a thing(a non-compete contract last forever), it won't matter since it's not legal and they can't do **** with it when you just ignore it and go work for the competitors.

  7. Based on my Steam page, deadfire is the 11th best selling game right now, just above GTA 5. Not sure how much it's telling but I think it's a pretty good sign. Also anyone know how the lanterns in Deadfire works? as a weapon or an equipment?
  8. Obligations Of Non-Competition is very common in lots of industries, but as far as I know they can't really ban anyone from being in a industry forever, only a certain period of time.
  9. I'm pretty sure it wasn't - just skimming my old screenshots all my characters had their weapons in their hands. Yes but you can equip two sets of weapons and the second sets will be appearing on your body instead of your hand.
  10. Is sheath a thing in PoE 1? I always feel you just hang them on your waist or back when you are not using them.
  11. I bet there will be a portraits mod on Nexus in less than 24 hours, with a full guidance of "how to install it", so don't worry, it will be easy to change portraits.
  12. I didn't even know about it. It's archived already, but you (maybe) have to subscribe to Geek and Sundry to watch it. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/256786856?collection=Uu7MCEZL_RSxsQ Looks like Josh and Co. show up at the 40 min mark, but I haven't done more than skip ahead until I saw something I recognized (which turned out to be Josh). Can't watch it since it's subscriber only. Based on what I see on RPGcodex and 4chan, the only new thing is that they confirmed the talking sword romance? Didn't have any proof though. > they confirmed the talking sword romance What. That's the reason I want to see anyone did watch the show and can clarify on this, since I've seen several people on RPGcodex and 4 chan say something like "romancing the sword confirmed", but I'm not sure whether they are joking or something.
  13. Even in fallout 4 where you can adjust your protagonist's body type during the character creation, 99% of the NPCs have the same body type, with only a handful exception. It's always nice to have more things(body types, voices, etc) in the game, but in the end they don't have the infinite budget and time to include everything,

  15. Anybody catch the interview with Geek& Sundry? Is there anything new in it?
  16. Well, Percival Fredrickstein Von Musel Klossowski de Rolo III is here guys. I have to say it's the best one yet, in my opinion.
  17. Don't listen to the Witcher 3 stuff. The game is fantastic, easily the best modern rpg. I can't really fathom why some people would talk about banging girls in the game, there's really not much in it. There's just two romance options. I think there's one or two one-offs you can have in side-quests but I can't really remember all too well. It's a 100+ hour game so it's definetly not a focuss in the game by any stretch. The only reason why I can imagine some people having that conversation is because they didn't actually play the game and are still hung up on the cards from Witcher 1. Because lots of people didn't play Witcher 3, they 'like' it because "Ohh pretty ladies and I get to decide which one I should bang", Same goes for the hate with DA:I: "All the female characters looks like **** and all the males are gay!". They don't know much about these games other than the memes.
  18. As far as I know the Witcher series has two gay characters. In Witcher 2 a wizard betrays the good guys. He's subsequently show with a half-naked male slave, squeezing his pimples. The designers explicitly said they intended to make him as despicable as possible. His sexuality serves to make him even more disgusting to the presumed straight player, much in the same way bishonen and sissy villains were meant to do for decades. The wizard is killed but he can also be castrated for good measure. It is indeed one the most homophobic games of the last years. In Witcher 3 Geralt can find a hunter in the wilderness. He is described as freak. If the player inquires the hunter will explain that he fell in love with the son of the local lord. Said lord caught them and the son killed himself. The lord became an alcoholic, his estate fell into ruin. And the hunter now lives in the wilderness alone because he is a social outcast. This is by no means a positive representation. Ciri is an entirely different matter. While this was not the case 20 or 30 years ago, the current ideal of heterosexual masculinity dictates that straight men must think lesbians are hot. The reactions towards lesbian characters in games is nowhere anywhere near as negative as those toward gay characters. Philippa is also a bi-sexual character(or lesbian?), in Witcher 3 they don't really show that but Dijkstra mentioned it in his dialogue.
  19. another Critical Role portraits revealed, the next one is scheduled on May 1st.
  20. I wonder how well the naming ship and islands system works when you are not using English. Since this time they provide localisation for Chinese and Korean, which is quite different from English.
  21. Thanks to the time zone, the game unlocks 9th here and I have to wait at least 10 hours for it to finish downloading, so play at 8th is out of the window.
  22. So is it a single hand sword or a two-hand sword? If single hand will it get jealous if I dual-wielding another sword or carry a shield? Just think about it, they could add another talking sword in the future, and two of them can start talking to each other when you equip both of them and drives the protagonist crazy in the process.
  23. We don't have CR companions, we have CR portraits and voice sets and that's it. If you want a character from CR you have to create it yourself. Also Josh mentioned that there will be banters for sidekicks, but only a little, probably only comments about something here and there, not conversation to other companions or sidekicks. And it is quite clear that you can have conversation with your sidekicks, which is more than normal adventurers you create.
