  1. that's one of the reasons I hate Open world . The Story always end up watered down , in the back burner .
  2. honestly , I think one can do both (haven't seen a game that does it though ) . I think you can have a good gripping story , and the open world stuff . But so far , nobody found a balance . It's either , have open world and the story suck (Skyrim is a good exemple , DAI did the same ) , or have a good story but then you have open world fan whine that is 'Limiting' . Also , maybe open world games could be their own games . I mean , let say someone make a BG3 . Why should it be open world ? cose someone like it ? No , maybe some games should be linear and some should be open world . Just remember to put the right TAGS on the boxe . THIS GAME IS OPEN WORLD (SANDBOX , STORY IS SMALL) and this game is LINEAR , STORY HEAVY ! Of course , in a better world..we should be able to strike a balance between good story and open world . So far the exuses were 'Lack of time , we made this huge world..never had time to fill it up ' . Side quest are part of any RPG that dare to call it's self RPG . The difference is when said side quest become a mundane (go fetch 10X of something) in comparaison to some others games where a side quest is SOOO good it doesn't feel like a simple side quest . A good exemple , is Jade empire which had such good side quest . The Arena fight , the School politic stuff going , the Graveyard ghost and such . The difference for exemple between PO2 and Jade Empire , whole time in Jade empire you could see the 'effect' of what was going on which was tied to the main story . That's the main issue with open world . The main story is rarely tied to this huge 'Explore' map .
  3. Omg this. Everything is so visually bland and boring now. What happened to Cipher's "lightsaber" from PoE 1? That was awesome. There were lots of complaints about this kind of stuff especially. A lot of people thought it made it hard to see what was going on. Hum..really? but there are weapons you can find that are very Glowy . If they did it cose of the complain , then no weapon should glow .
  4. Planning on playing Divinity Original Sin 2 in co-op with a friend of my mine that is far far away! So Hyped for it!
  5. Well, there's also a third group, like me, who are more or less indifferent. For me the story, the companions and the side quests are always more interesting than combat itself. And since the different easy settings caters to people like me, we have little interest in PotD difficulty. This exactly. I've played PoE many times (though finished it only once). And every time I replay it I only play at the easy or story mode. The story, the side quests, the companions, and my own character's development are all that I care about, and I generally hate the combat situations. That's a legitimate way to play the game, but it doesn't really have anything to do with the discussion about how to tune combat, IMHO. People who are focused on story and character and don't care about combat don't really have a stake in the discussion; easy and story mode are there specifically to cater to that group. When the rest of us are discussing how and in what way the game should be balanced, saying "I don't care about combat" doesn't really add anything to the discussion. that's not...completely true . I give you an exemple : I play an MMO , so I'm a PVE Player . I play for the story . Homewhever , I still enjoy my character zapping abilitie (Sorc) . Here come the PVP player , who whine that Sorc heal and zapping is too OP! Nerf it ! Bioware nerf it . Guess what ? I feel it too . Now my kick ass abilitie is downgraded . PVP player will say : Why do you care ? You only here for the story ! I still enjoy my class , thank you very much . I still use Summon and spell . Maybe I don't track the number like a hard core player and use a calculator . But I still can freaking feel it when my summon won't last long as before , or when my spell doesn't hit that hard still . The difference is I won't go rage in the PVP Thread and tell them to cut it out . But they never come and ask if it's ok for the rest of us either . So personally , I understand the need of 'Balancing' . I can't really say if this class or that spell is weak or overpowered . I just ask , plz don't nerf stuff for no good reasons or for Power Trip or cose you don't like the class ..so it has to get grinded to dust . That's all . Okay, that's legit, but that's a discussion about MMO's. In MMO's, balancing occurs for entirely different reasons and in entirely different ways. It's implicit in your example; PVP vs PVE is a debate that only and exclusively exists in MMO's; it's not really analogous to the difficulty and balance debates that occur about *single-player* games. I can't really see how a story-focused person in a single-player game really is effected by the difficulty curve, balancing, and combat tuning debates. That is, provided a certain baseline of class and character viability, I don't see how somebody in a single-player game whose major (or sole) focus on gameplay is narrative and character based is really concerned with how strong each class or ability is relative to each other or to combat enemies. my comparaison is based (at least in my exemple of Swtor) that if you nerf stuff in PVP , it will effect PVE players (and vice versa) . And not all PVE players are there for story . Just because one buy the game cose of the story , it doesn't mean they are totally blind to the rest of the game . I love a good game , sure the story is my focus . But Once I ge that out of my system , I be playing the game and enjoying kicking ass . Sure , I won't play Ironman , but I will up the difficulty evantually (Till Insanity) if only for the Lolz and see how many time I will die . No you are right . I..and I will speak for myself only , I will not be concerned how strong each class is (since I can't say if x class is strong or not , or if x spell is weak ) . Homewhever , Nerf while they touch the +1 +2 dmg stuff and such , they will also touch stuff like 'How many times you can cast this ' and 'How long this buff last ' and how 'this summon last ' . Those like it or not will happen eventually . And those , one cannot be blind and see it . Will it be a great concern for me enough to say 'Argh , they nerf it so bad..I want a refund ' ? No . But enough for me to see it . The real issue is assuming that everyone who play for story...wouldn't care . They do . Just like assuming that anyone who play on the Hardest difficulty actually know how to tweak a class proprely . Some peoples maybe able to beat Ironman , doesn't mean they know the 'proper' balance to fix something that annoy them . What MAY annoy them , may just be for THEM . I've seen it many time in PVP where 'PVP Players' ask for a tweak here and there just to be shot down by peoples who know better . Hence why I'm not demanding , but pleading . For those who know this stuff better then me , to becareful with asking to nerf and balance . That's really all I,m asking . P.S: And the worry come from the fact , that none has a badge of expertise anywhere . None can claim 'Hey! I'm a Pro at balancing class!' . Each go with their long experience of playings and such . And everyone wanna add their 'experience' which often will lead to this kind of debate . Right or wrong , just keep everyone in mind . Cose everyone play the game .

  7. ALTS FOR SCIENCE!!! Ehem... I had no idea we could skip that now! Thank the gods! not skip like...hit ESC skip... I still had to do it *again*...even though...well it didnt recognize my save with the update I guess.. But...under new game , you have a skip&new game show up.. it's weird..
  8. I don't know why it would be surprising that an Imp is tha Mighty Goku I play this MMO and the strongest Boss in the game is tha freaking Elevator ! you rush and jump..and if you freaking miss , your best geared character max level..will still die . Beware of elevators
  9. work fine for me . Have you tried playing around with the setting ? like turning off Vsync or something ?
  10. That's the trade-off, mate... Oh I don't care for helmet . But some peoples do . There shouldn't be a trade off , since no other specie have that . If every specie had something like that..maybe ..but there isn't .
  11. oh hey while we are talking about Xoti and Éder.. if you encourage him to talk to her..that is not...romance right? like encourage her to go for him (and yes I'm aware he doesnt care for her).. lol you know what..I just tell him to stay away . for science lol
  12. as much as I hate skylame , at least they didn't bicker . If anything , they were something you could walk away from and don't feel guilty about not joining ever . Here as soon as you find the castle...its politic..politic..politic.... wonder if they got along , how it would feel like...imagine , all those ships behind you in the end !
  13. only way I found to walk away (which I didn't....cose hello..lunatic) , is to let them do what they were about to do .
  14. I played the old Shining force... Man..that was good . And never heard of a 3rd !! But if it was on Saturn , then yeah .
  15. Watcher: hey Nemnok! Your shoes lice are open...you gonna trip ! *Nemnok bend over* *watcher steal amulet* TADAM!
  16. Its like sex, drugs and rock n roll. Except here its sex, booze, and... plunder? oh man..now you did it lol LATEX PIRATES!
  17. and Booze ! don't forget free booze for everyone ! what kind of pirates are we , if we aren't sailing and zig zaging around..drunk..and singing huh
  18. companions dialogues were firing too fast . As for them coming onto you....you can say no . And sure it make sense ! you fight monsters , don't you ? does that make sense ? Sureeeeeeeee...! you are a cipher that throw magic , does that make sense ? Sureeeee!....everyone is Bi ? Damn right it make sense... Sigh. 1. I don't want to have to say no to my companions. 2. I love it when people use the fantasy setting as a rule to allow all sorts of nonsense. Next up, space ships, laser rifles, cars and anime characters. Because reasons. and I love it when peoples hide behind 'reality stuff ' to hide homophobia . and Le Sigh... Romance are stuff peoples like . Romance are for everyone . It's only nonsense for peoples like you..cose reasons . Dude, I am the last person who is homophobic and you take your careless insult back! You don't know me, you make baseless accusations on an internet forum? Grow up. I'm asking why all my characters are bisexual and the only actual reason is because people want all possible romance options. And to me, that's pleasing fans and not something that makes sense from an RP point of view. Geezus the frikking SJW are back. I thought we were long past that, but I guess it is still not acceptable to question sexuality. Oh boohoo . SJW this....SJW that... if anyone need to grow up , it's you . And anyone for that matter that see SJW everywhere , as soon as a game doesn't cater to them anymore . it's Hypocrite , very very hypocrite . Why do you need to question sexuality ? Do you go around asking 'Why this movie has females innit ?'' 'Why this store sell only kid stuff ?' . RP reasons , pray tell.... what RP reasons ? Funny how it goes . Everyone hetero , and it's fine . Some bi get in there and it's pleasing fans . everything in a game is about pleasing fans . From Loot , armors , weapons , class , spells..etc . They create Dungeons cose peoples ask for them . They create Tavern with dancers....guess what ? Cose peoples asked for them . Isn't that pleasing fans ?
  19. Couldn't figure out where such a topic gotta go , so I'm putting it here . Hopefully it's the right place . (Mods plz move it , if you think it shouldn't be here . Thank you!) . Anyway , pick 3 of most wanted desire..goodies or whatever and pretty much this here is where I'm hoping we can request stuff they can ACTUALLY add to the game . Now don't go overboard and request stuff like a Mount , seriously . 1- A special slot for Godlike where peoples want to use the +2 from hat . Right now , Godlike can't use hat and for good reasons . Homewhever , they shouldn't be penalized for it . You could create a special slot where the hat still won't show up and they can still gain something from hat . Especially since we can get some as rewards . 2- More Head for Godlike . Also more 'Animal' traits for Nature Godlike . RIght now Nature Godlike look like a Tree . 3- Can we have some glowy effect for crafted item please ? Here I'm wasting ressources to craft and buff an armor and a weapon , and it look normal still .
  20. companions dialogues were firing too fast . As for them coming onto you....you can say no . And sure it make sense ! you fight monsters , don't you ? does that make sense ? Sureeeeeeeee...! you are a cipher that throw magic , does that make sense ? Sureeeee!....everyone is Bi ? Damn right it make sense... Sigh. 1. I don't want to have to say no to my companions. 2.
