  1. I only logged in here after a year or so to request exactly that, after watching the gameplay footage. The constant aiming at NPCs was the only thing spoiling my overall excitement for the game a little.
  2. Another yes please for the third person view, just for the statistics.
  3. I think the audience for NWN2 is pretty much split into those who prefer singleplayer and the multiplayer ones, maybe with the people enjoying custom made modules somewhere in between. I often read very strong opinions from one or the other side. For me, NWN(2) was probably the only good multiplayer and roleplay experience I've ever had, something on a level that is not possible in MMOs and won't ever come back because it makes no sense for a developer from a financial point of view. For the official campaign I couldn't care less, even if I enjoyed MotB I would probably never touch the singleplayer side of NWN2 again.
  4. Well, Beamdog said "Ask Obsidian", so I did.
  5. This is not a suggestion, this is begging. I already posted this in the NWN2 section, but I doubt anyone ever goes there anymore. After playing a bit of Beamdog's NWN1 EE I loaded up my old module (planned PW) that I gave up on some years ago and noticed how much I miss the game, the multiplayer and the world building. NWN2 was really a diamond in the rough, so much potential but so many bugs, bad luck, unfinished things. The last straw for me was the Gamespy shutdown, I had no hope to get any players anyway so threw it all in the bin. Well, since NWN1 just came back from the dead, sort of, there just has to be a NWN2 Enhanced edition. Period. I want it, I need it, and the world needs the NWN-style multiplayer, there's no other game that does it anymore. My beloved favorite developer, I'd kiss your feet if you'd even consider just giving it to Beamdog or whoever is willing, I'll include the ankles if you do it yourself. I'd be willing to pay even for a bugfix edition, with reenabled master servers and reintroduction to Steam, so some new players can experience this gem.
  6. After playing around with the NWN 1 Enhanced I need to bump this... so badly. I forgot how much I missed this game, the multiplayer and the building. I just walked around in a module (for a planned PW) I started building years ago and gave up after the Gamespy shutdown killed the last hope for getting players interested. It totally needs an enhanced edition, heck, just a bugfix Edition and reenabled multiplayer would be worth $20 to me. Please please please consider it, beloved favorite developer of all time, I'd be willing to kiss your feet even if you just gave the code to Beamdog or whoever is willing.
  7. Nothing to say about trackpads, but otherwise I haven't had any problems so far, about 10 hrs in. That's Yosemite btw, I don't know if there are any problems on older systems.
  8. You should look up some folk tales/songs, there are quite a few about crossdressing. Not to mention that in Shakespear's time only men were allowed to play women on a stages, so that was quite common. If it's been a topic in medieval times, why not in PoE's setting?
  9. In a climate where not even a mild joke (we're not even sure who's the victim in) provokes such an outcry, art is impossible. I want extremists stay out of my game. It's not about the joke anymore, it's about extremists demanding things and companies going out of their way to please them, and that's the only reason I don't want Obsidian to pull it. I hate Gamergate, I hate extreme SJWs, can't you all just shut up and get offended by things that are really worth it? Or just, on both sides, get a little sense of humor, don't take yourself too seriously and have a little laugh on your own expense, I do that every day. Read some jewish jokes, they're actually good about making jokes at their own expense.
  10. Hard to put into words how disappointed/angry I am about this ridiculous outrage. I can't even get my mind around to see the "trans(?)" person in that joke as the victim, for me the joke is clearly on the "transphobic(?)" guy. Anyhow, even if this joke offends anyone it's really not in any way harmful, triggering, whatever... everyone makes jokes about everyone, someone's always the "victim", and I find so many offensive things in games that could theoretically offend me that I shouldn't even touch them anymore. Point is, this twitter campaign was clearly started by people with an agenda, and I'm just waiting for people to start petitions to have Monty Python removed from television for being too offensive to minorities. If this tombstone does it, I can only recommend the countless MP jokes on men in women's clothing to the easily offended. It's Obsidian's choice how they want to deal with this, luckily it's nothing affecting their own writing, but in this climate I don't want to be a writer or artist anymore. Whatever you do, the pitchfork crowd is just waiting for the smallest offense and reason to burn down your house. In the end we will get inclusive but totally lifeless storylines, too scared to touch on any edgy subject, in other words the next Bioware game - the company who's storytelling has fallen so far behind Obsidian's writing that I really can't play their games anymore.
  11. Just taking a little break from the game (at 4 am) to thank you. I'm not far in yet but it looks like you've outdone yourselves, what a beautiful game! And so happy to see all those amazing reviews, you guys really deserved this so much. Now I only cross fingers that it'll be a financial success for you too and you can finally do whatever you always wanted to do.
  12. Was a bit worried about the animations (or lack of) too... okay, I get that it's alpha and you're working on it, but please please do them right this time, they were so cringeworthy in your past games! I'm hoping for some more UI images soon, still not sure if I want that part of the old infinity games back... Also, Donald Duck at 0.56?
  13. The video isn't made by Obsidian. It's just a song. Oh? Alright, don't mind me then.
  14. Gawd f...ing dammit, the Update is blocked in Germany... how I hate this GEMA/Youtube silliness!
  15. · A NWN2 successor: No need for DnD, but same vibe. Toolset. Mods. Multiplayer NWN-style. DM client. Polished, good looking graphics, better camera, you name it. · Fallout 4/New Vegas 2. To make up for Bethesda's non-existant storytelling skills. I still want to meet Clover as a real character again. · Skyrim 2/New Riften/whatever. See above. · Another modern-setting RPG, a little bit in the style of, say, The Secret World (but not MMO) comes to mind. Just thinking it could be well done with a deep storyline. · Surprise me Obsidian. For now I'm looking forward to PE and Order of the Stick though, both look fun in their own way.
