  1. finally got to playing Nier:Automata, and while I know a lot of people love that game, I just don't see why. maybe it's because I'm playing on PC with M+KB, but combat feels unfair most of the time. encounters are very poorly designed, and because the controls are so bad on PC by default, I keep dying so often it really feels like an exercise in frustration. I finally dropped the game after a boss fight where I had to play a bullet-hell portion, and the game switched controls as part of the "challenge", that was the last straw since you can't do diagonal movement on KB... I'm sure
  2. holy hell, this thread is still going! hats off to Shady and the rest of you, good obsidianites, for keeping it alive
  3. game engines don't make games. rather, the engine you choose will determine what you can't do. everything else is more or less the same across engines. the bulk of the work is building a game on top of the tech. and I think NWN 2 used the same tech as NWN (and it was also used for both KOTORs).
  4. another day in the West, among lowlifes and degenerates but every now and then you just have to take a break from the wild life of an outlaw man, this game can be breathtaking
  5. well, that's the question: which one of the two you'd hate losing access to more?
  6. actually, I still see articles about KOTOR II pop up every now and then, 15+ years after the game's initial release. and yeah, you're probably right about HK and Kreia being the characters that are quoted the most. I say it's historically significant mainly thanks to its IP. nobody outside the small circle of Infinity Engine RTWP fans knows about PoE, and I'd argue even the extremely well made and critically acclaimed New Vegas is nowhere near as well known as KOTOR II. it's culturally significant precisely because it deconstructs the SW mythos in a believable way, and at the same time it expa
  7. yup, I see it the same way, that's why I chose it over Fallout New Vegas (close second) and Alpha Protocol (flawed gem, but unfortunately nowhere near as important historically)
  8. OK, something I'm curious about: if all Obsidian games were to vanish -- and you could pick one that would be saved -- which one would you pick? This poll isn't about your favorite Obsidz game, it's about the game that you think should be forever remembered and replayed, their most impactful game etc. I tried searching for a similar topic but couldn't find it (except for a "Best Obsidian game so far" poll -- which isn't exactly what I'm interested in knowing -- on a forum that shall not be named). I saw a Twitter post about this, and the result there surprised me; my own response to this
  9. Original Sin 2 has a good story? are you on crack? that's one of the blandest games ever story wise... I guess now I know why Larian's games are so popular. people can't tell a good story from a bad one, too many games, too much time spent playing mediocre crap, harder and harder to separate the good from the bad, I guess, in this sea of mediocrity.
  10. these two things don't necessarily have direct causality. of course, we can't know for sure whether or not the name "Fallout" was the main reason behind its success, but I am of the opinion that ultimately it was the game itself and not the brand. I'm certain it would've done equally as well if it had been called RAGE back then and was set in RAGE's universe. Fallout 3 is not a Fallout game, it's a post-apocalyptic game that takes a few of the cosmetic elements from the previous Fallout games. which is exactly what's happening now with BG3.
  11. guys, this isn't the thread for "TB vs RTWP" posts. both are flawed and should never be used for anything other than nostalgia-driven projects. but the real issue is, BG was RTWP no matter how you spin it. this new game has no business being titled "Baldur's Gate" if it's not RTWP. secondly, the Bhaal spawn saga is over, this game shouldn't have a "3" in its title. shoulda called it "Pool of Radiance" and be done with it.
  12. oh hey, is it time to post RDO pics again? that I am, because I've been making new friends
  13. my unpopular opinion is, DayZ is the most important game of the decade and I agree with about 60% of what's been said in this thread
  14. oh hey, a RDR2-off! I'm mostly making new friends online though I've sure come a long way since my daring escape but I do stop to admire the scenery every chance I get oh, in case anyone was curious, this is the inspiration for my character
  15. oh Sadie, you always know what to say
