  1. The only suggestions I could offer would have to do with the things I either didn't like, or thought were falling short of what POE 1 did. So... all of it just personal feelings, with some musings that maybe others felt the same upon hearing of such things. - As some suggested, the pirate theme may have been seen as an odd next step after the last game. The plot itself just felt pointless by the end of it too, which is something others had talked about. Maybe that was deliberate, but such a move is basically too artsy for its own good if it was. - Performance issues cropped up that
  2. Still waiting on a fix too. I remain confused as to why performance just nose dived after the last patch, and why there isn't so much as a "yes, we're patching it soon". As it stands, the game is completely unplayable on what should be a pretty capable rig (one that's running stuff like DOOM just fine). Can we please get some kind of update on what's going on?
  3. Thanks for the tips! Will check these out later today. GOG does have a launcher, but it's almost never been a problem, certainly it's lighter than Steam anyhow...
  4. I apologize if this has been posted. I've not found any discussion here, and I also apologize for this not being in the Tech support section, which clearly labels itself as being for the Beta's and Steam.... Anyhow, as stated, I'm on the GOG version of the game, with all expansions. I took a long break after Seeker, Slayer, Survivor (or however it's called), and only just got back to POE with a new character. My previous runs on the game were buttery smooth (running on a GTX 1080 here), no issues at all, not even a single crash. Yet now, when I run the game, every few seconds there's a pa
  5. While I agree that POE's story got a bit muddy and fizzled out by the end (main plot, not the sub plots, which were well written) ... I have to say, I take major issue to describing Diablo 3's story as "gripping", especially compared to POE 2. The writing (dialogue and narration) in D3 is infinitely worse than POE 2. It runs the range of B-fantasy movie grade to plain dreadful. The only time it really worked was during the cinematic, which Blizzard has always excelled at. (Just thinking the overarching story in D3 is bringing to mind the painful interactions between Leah and Decard. Whi
  6. I didn't mind the writing over all, but there were definately parts of it that came across as less than stellar. I really, really did not like Pallegina in this adventure. I'd go into specifics, but it might be too close to spoilers for this thread. I liked Aloth though. The main campaign? Yeah, it really didn't have any weight to it, which is odd considering it centered around a rampaging colossal god statue. I almost feel like the game would have been better served just focusing on the political stuff. I think that POE is getting a bit more and more ham-fisted when it comes to tac
  7. I don't quite agree with the OP about the overall quality of the writing, awkward and rushed romances aside. I rather did enjoy the individual stories (main plot was forgettable), and some of the interesting situations. With that said; Icewind Dale 1 and 2 are some of my favorite games of all time, and honestly are the ones that got me into RPG's in the first place. I always liked them more than Baldurs Gate. I liked how direct they were; there was a dark lord rising, or a doomish legion doing its thing, and your squad of heroes was there to face the threat. I remember coming up with all kinds
  8. I am probably in the minority here, but I have to say, if there's one part about companions that Pillars of Eternity 1 did better than 2, it was the lack of romances. A thing I always liked about Obsidian titles (not counting NWN 2 and I guess Alpha Protocol, which has a suitable context at least) was how they did not go the Bioware route of making every companion shaggable. I liked how in POE 1, everyone honestly had more important things to do (and some even had family's of their own), and were more interested in the mission. In POE 2, Xoti is constantly looking for someone to bang (ser
  9. I miss it too, but I don't see how it could happen. When people discussed modding this, somebody said that it would be really difficult because there are many things (including how dialogue options work) that were done for four companions and you can't simply add another one. Yeah, I figured that would be a problem. Still, a man can dream!
  10. I miss having a squad of six. It probably wont happen, but I am holding out some hope that we'll get a sixth slot in an expansion, or at least in the inevitable third title.
  11. And posted! Thanks in advance to you guys taking in these requests.
  12. Penalty or not, the combo itself fits the character concept. Besides, this is just his primary set, one with which he seems to be laying the hurt on just fine so far, so the question between the two sabers still stands.
