  1. English isn't my native language so this might be a bit difficult for me to explain properly but i'll try. A market is defined by it's customer base, even if it is a niche genre it could be saturated. Before Pillars 1 it wasn't obviously but after that quite a few games have been released in a relatively short time. Wasteland 2 (and 3 comes out in 2 weeks), Tyranny, Tides Of Numemera, D:OS 1 and 2, Pathfinder Kingmaker, Disco Elysium, there was also a D&D game i can't remember the name right now and of course Baldur's Gate 3 that is also coming out this year. The same thing happ
  2. I was highly critical of the game and after watching the post-portem talk Josh Sawyer did last year i get why it felt so rough and not as polished around the edges especially when it first came out. But even though i was disappointed in some respects it's not a bad game, the reviews are positive so it's clear that the quality of it has nothing to do with the lack in sales. When PoE was announced people, especially fans of the infinity engine games, were eager for something like it. The market wasn't saturated and i believe it was also one of the first successful kickstarter projec
  3. I don't remember the movie but i've seen a lot of people saying it's similar to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids...but with death... The potential is huge and people are already asking for more.
  4. What? I'm already terrified, don't do this to me.
  5. I don't think manual saves should be removed, you can just avoid saving, this way the game is more accessible for everyone. Regarding the threats in the game i think you had a rather peculiar experience, i'm also playing on Woah difficulty and more often than not the only chance you have is to run. Thank god we can do that. It's also a matter of "realism", since we are self-conscious and more self-aware than animals it makes sense for us to be able to outsmart them. It's in early access so is still a work in progress.
  6. After 10 hours my opinion hasn't changed, i'm having a lot of fun with it. It's so difficult to speak about the game without spoilers thought, i wanna share my experience but i don't want to ruin it for everyone. The best way to play is to go in blind.
  7. Even if you can tell it's a bit rough around the edges it looks great, the experience i had was pretty solid. I didn't have many issues really, the systems that are available are working, i love the art style and how immersive the game is. It's such a unique setting you know and i must admit i was on board from the beginning. I can't wait to see what's coming and how much the game will improve over time. I also want to report that i crashed 3 times while navigating the map using the arrows on the left. (The one you use to switch between the points of interest) In terms of things to add, t
  8. I have gamepass for PC and i'm playing the game right now. You don't need Ultimate, you just need to download the Xbox app and all the games are there for you. The Microsoft store has nothing to do with Gamepass, there you can buy the game and that's it.
  9. The Outer Worlds expansion is coming out September 9th so most of the work it's already done. But don't believe that Avowed will be finished and released soon. My bet is for 2022
  10. It's not easy to make a good combat system that works with both.
  11. The "Skyrim clone" in the title is stupid. With that said since here we're allowed to dream ecc... there's a few...things i'd like to see in the game. Umh did someone say Eder or Aloth? Regarding the point of view i'm perfectly fine with it being in first person, in my opinion it's the best way to immerse yourself and experience the world. It's the same reason why Cyberpunk is in first person too. Elder Scrolls games also have a third person view but the combat and the animations were always...not great to say the least. It's very hard to make a good combat system that works with both, i
  12. Some years(?) ago when Josh Sawyer was talking about PoE 2 sales and the future of the series i almost wanted to ask him if in his opinion there was a chance for a "modern" (i mean non isometric) Pillars game. The lore and the setting are so interesting and like Achilles wrote i'm
  13. I'm so excited for this! I didn't know it was set in the PoE world and that's also a great news!
  14. Nothing bad with spreading a positive message of equality and unity, but i feel like people are giving too much importance to gender and sexuality these days. It's something so private and personal and it shouldn't be questioned by anyone. We share the same dignity as human beings no matter what. We did a lot but the process of self consciousness will never stop. Never. And it's clear that on 7.594 billion people on earth there will always be some ignorant ****. In my opinion there isn't really a big problem, especially in fictional media. There's no safe space to preserve. What
  15. I agree, it's so odd that you can do that for your character and not for the rest of your companions. It's clearly an oversight
  16. More than cats, i want a miniature giant space hamster to follow me around like a mascot or at least on my ship! Seriously though i hope MS will give them full support, Obsidian deserves it. Every new piece content will be highly appreciated. Such universe offers almost limitless opportunities in terms of stories to tell, worlds to explore and characters to meet.
  17. Hi everyone, i hope you're doing ok during this difficult time, please stay safe and follow the WHO instructions. With that said i wanna talk about something that will really improve the game imo and i hope it'll be addressed in the near future. I think the features of the supernova difficulty should be free to choose. Hunger, thirst and sleep should be available no matter the difficulty you chose to play. Supernova combat is more difficult only because it makes enemies more bullet sponge and i really dislike that, not just in this game but in any t/fps really. For me Su
  18. Most of all, I don't know if Microsoft will be interested in producing such a niche type of game. Isometric crpgs are not very popular and don't fit the console market. I didn't like Deadfire that much (as it gave me "Skyrim feelings" in the sense that the side/faction quest are completely detach from the main quest and the Watcher has no reason for doing them) but i'm invested in this series. I love the gameplay, the setting, the characters from the first game and i want to know how it ends the Watcher story.
  19. Of course i wanted to save Imoen and face Irenicus. She's been with me from the beginning of the first game and Irenicus also killed Khalid.
  20. I'm very peculiar i think, growing up i became way more interested in what videogames can do in terms of storytelling and writing in general. In the last decade one of my best experience was with the Telltale game The Walking Dead, even though the gameplay was very simple i really enjoyed it. I like to play other games like the occasional racing game, F1 in particular or strategy games like xCOM, but clearly my favourite games are rpgs. So i liked PoE 1 a lot more, in fact i consider that game to be one of the best i've played in my life. I think the companions, the dialogue, the lore,
  21. Well, i didn't expect all this replies. Thank you everyone! I read all your posts and i'm happy to see that other people feel the same way as me and i also understood other points of view. After 20 hours i tought i had an idea of how the game was but now i have to correct myself. This post is like an update after i kept playing. Before i said the graphics overhaul and the design of some locations (compared with PoE1) didn't impressed me, maybe i was a bit harsh on the design part, however my other problem persists and is probably due to the bad textures resolution. I wonder if i am t
  22. Hi all i just subscribed, first of all i wanna say sorry if my english is not always 100% correct, i'm italian. I'm in my 20s, i grew up loving rpgs and until The Witcher 3 came out Baldur's Gate 2 used to be my favourite game of all time. Pillars of Eternity 1 is not far from this two, i loved it, it was one hell of an experience and i was so hyped and really looking forward for the sequel. So as you may have understood my expectations for Pillars of Eternity 2 were very high aand...unfortunately the beginning of the game (i'm 20 hours in and i've just reached the first major city
