  1. Technically I suppose this isn't news, but I searched the forums and only found one post about it (and the gameplay is new-ish) but I just saw this for the first time yesterday, a new game from the Tower of Time people, and I thought it looked pretty cool.
  2. I'd probably not be very fond of Kingmaker if I had played it in real-time (I'm not a huge fan of RTWP) but the fast majority of my time with it (which is over 600 hours...though a lot of that was just playing around with different builds to see how viable they were) was with the turn-based mod. I generally am fine with any companions, the only one I can recall that I really disliked is Vivienne in DA: I. I also wasn't super fond of Durance. I don't think he was a bad character, really, but I don't think he should have been a companion (because why would you keep around someone who was
  3. I've been playing Tyranny. I started it twice before, but never finished it. I'm currently doing a Disfavored/Law & Order run, and hoping to do at least a Scarlet Chorus and Rebel run afterwards, but we'll see if that happens. Before that, I was playing Remnant: From The Ashes, which was an excellent game (and the first "Souls-Like" I've finished, mainly because it's the first I've played without platforming or game-breaking bugs) but I got a bit tired running through the same areas hoping that the event/dungeon I needed would spawn so I could have a chance to get the key to open th
  4. Honestly, I just hope it's less empty and dull than Inquisition. Everyone says that the game gets so much better after the Hinterlands, but outside the DLC (I bought the game of the year edition for like $15) all the areas just felt completely empty to me. After that it was all huge areas with like 5 or 6 meaningful NPCs and 2 or 3 quests. But, since I have something of a commitment to the series (I hung out on the forums for the game constantly for a year or more before the game was released, and the first game was probably the most hyped I ever was for a game) I'll probably buy the co
  5. I'm glad to hear that. It's a game I was quite interested in, but when I saw them releasing DLC, I figured I'd wait until the full game was out, and then buy the complete version (which is almost the only way I buy games any more.) As to what I'm playing, I'm just glad to be playing anything. I'd been without a PC since the end of April (finally got everything worked out 2 days ago), and I don't have a console, so I've been trying to scratch the itch with mobile games (strictly free to play, though.)
  6. So I went to see an orthopedist who specializes in feet and ankles yesterday, and he managed to get my toe back into socket, and have it stay there. So, no surgery for me, thankfully. Have to keep my toes taped and see him in 3 weeks or so. The pain is mostly gone at this point, though I still can't walk properly on that foot. So things are going as well as can be expected, thankfully.
  7. I fell coming down the stairs in the dark around 4 AM yesterday (I thought I was at the bottom of the stairs and I wasn't) and dislocated my second toe on my left foot. So, that was fun. I'm supposed to wear a walking boot, but because of the virus, the medical supply store was closed on Saturdays (it's usually open until 1), so I have to wait until Monday to get the boot, so I'm painfully hobbling around (and given that all my stuff including my computer is on the second floor and the kitchen is on the first floor, I'm climbing up and down stairs at least twice a day.) Fortunately, I h
  8. While I'm not fussed either way in regards to dinosaurs, I would like the Hunter class to make it. I'm a big fan of it (I like most of the 2/3rds casters from Pathfinder, though inquisitor is kind of the exception.) Really happy it funded (and kind of surprised that they're looking at starting alpha testing stuff in April.)
  9. 5E isn't I Go You Go, is it? I read the core books several years ago but I don't remember them well enough to know if they actually did away with individual initiative. Also, did they do away with skill checks? Because I can't see level 1 characters being able to leap about like that if they had to make skill checks (heck, even most level 20 characters wouldn't be willing to leap about like that in the middle of a fight, because there's a decent chance you'd fail and end up prone.)
  10. Pushing the guy off the ledge was cool. Him flying 20 feet through the air instead of falling mostly down was what really bothered me. It was like he got punched by someone with superhuman strength, instead of just a relatively normal person (especially since it was a ranged rogue, who presumably didn't have a super high strength.) I'm down with turn-based, and the combat itself didn't look bad. My concerns were mostly visuals and writing. Honestly, the first couple characters they encountered seemed like something out of a 16 year old emo kids fanfiction.
  11. I don't really like 5E D&D, so I wasn't super hopeful, but that was kind of disappointing. When they started off with a reformed vampire spawn character and the first character they met was named Shadowheart,... The climbing looked kind of neat, but then there was the jumping that just looked silly. And when the main character pushed that guy off the ledge and he went flying 20 feet, I just burst out laughing. Maybe it'll be okay, but barring some sort of rave reviews from lots of people, it looks like something I may pick up in the bargain bin some day.
  12. You can only get turn-based in Kingmaker if you install the mod. I also recommended Call of the Wild because it adds the Warpriest class (among others), which seemed to match the kind of character you were looking for.
  13. You have to install the mod, and if you have it installed, Alt-T (by default) toggles between turn-based and real-time. Also, for the kind of character you mentioned wanting to make, I'd install Call of the Wild and make a Warpriest, but that's just me.
  14. BG2 is the worst Infinity Engine game. Also, BG2 has a lot (and I mean a lot) of terrible writing. Very few games labelled as RPGs these days are actually RPGs
