  1. Made a mushroom ravioli alfredo tonight with some snow peas and a bit of ham. It was lurvely.
  2. I'm in the process of starting a new biz for myself and wasting even a mere $25 for something like a beta just isn't in the cards for me right now. Even if it was this concept of paying to beta really bothers the hell out of me. Every time I see it happens the game comes out an absolute mess. Release it to all the backers if you're serious about getting real feedback and bugs killed. Larian is doing it the right way. And given Obsidians bug filled track record they need everyone and their dog beta'ing this.
  3. If they did, everyone would complain how KS project games are bugridden, incomplete, and a very bad system. Not exactly a good thing, right? So they don't... No, that's just poor project management. You don't see these problems in any other commercial projects. And you don't do things like add new stretch goals to a project over a year later. That's atrocious project management. There are very real reasons why specific dates need to be nailed down.
  4. I'm done with Kickstarters for people and companies that can afford to do it themselves. KS is for people who actually need funds. And ceratinly no more without seeing a first project delivered. I love Obsidian but this doesn't sit well with me.
  5. Ugh, oh well. Thanks for the heads-up. I can live with that - though not happily. As I stated I'll only be pissed if they push it back for new stretch options.
  6. I prefer the classic AD&D trolls - which NWN 1/2 almost got right. Tall, lanky, incredibly strong and ugly, rubbery skin, foul oudor, unkillable except by acid or flame. I acutally really visualize them much like Meg Mucklebones in Ridley Scott's fantasy flick Legend.
  7. 2014 is pretty vague. Could we nail that down? And for god sake if you guys delay this game for more stretch goals I'll burn your office to the ground. Ok maybe not, but I think I'll be asking for a refund in that case. Let's just get the main game out the door, ok? Save the stretch goals for a sequel or proper expansion/DLC.
  8. No, absolutely no more stretch goals. Let's just get the bloody main game out the door ASAP, polished and bug free. After that you do another drive for a proper expansion and/or DLC. But for now I don't want to see this game delayed one second further than it has to be. Next thing this will be Star Citizen with endless feature creep and a 2 year project becomes a 5 year project. Thanks, but no thanks. Just let me get my grubby little mitts on it NOW! Thanks.
  9. I've backed it and everyone else and their dog should as well! DOS is actually top of my list for 2013 - and it's slated for an Oct/Nov release so yay! Co-op play, awesome editor, great visuals and crafting, etc. What's not to love? Damn this is going to be an utterly fantastic year for RPG fans!!! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/larianstudios/divinity-original-sin
  10. Loved it and it was all super duper but lets move on to newer and greener pastures shall we. How abou NYC that'd be a natural for Fallout!
  11. Good points all around. I'm just saying I want to be entertained. I'm not looking for the equivilant of the Bataan Death March to impart high drama. Life is a brutal enough grind. I game - ©RPGs in particular - as an escape to relax and enjoy myself. Trudging through constant woe and misery ain't my idea of fun. Maybe I'm just not sophisticated enough for Russian authours. I'm of the school, 'I don't know if it's art, but I know what I like.'
  12. 2 weeks holidays? Holy crap! livin the life of Reilly there, lads. Let's see I get Xmas day off and that's it.
  13. As I stated in my thread here http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/62556-the-man-said-its-not-so-bad-to-have-some-fun/ I'd like to see some fun gods in the pantheon like you might see on Discworld. In this particular case.... Maybe we get Derpy Hooves into the pantheon somehow.
  14. In case you haven't seen this before it's definitely NSFW! "I'm ridin' on a dolphin doin' flips n' ****! The dolphins' splashin' getting everybody all wet!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avaSdC0QOUM
  15. I don't even understand the OPs second question in this poll. What exactly is he asking?
  16. Amen. For the love all things holy. Please, no more vampires or werewolves or zombies. That ****e is so played out They need to give them a rest...say for the next 10 years or so.
  17. Problem is most people don't want what the OP wants. They just find that sort of stuff more annoying than not. And some of it is just plain unworkable - like the fireball example - for obvious computational reasons. Granted to could some of it and just provide means to deal with it. Hate trudging through the swamp? Drink a potion of free movement and porblem solved. So yeah, there are always work arounds. Point is, is it worth creating all the extra work for something most people don't care about or want anyway? No.
  18. I'd like to have some fun with this game. A lot of posts I've read seem very concerned about this or that thing and all seem to have serious overtones. Whatever happened to having some fun? A good chortle as it were. Now, I'm not saying I want this game to be slapstick but I've always appreciated humour and irreverence in RPGs - probably why Paranoia was favourite of mine and please someone KS a Paranoia CRPG already! Let's face it you can't have good drama without peaks and valleys. You need to both build and release tension. And one of the best releases is always comedy. Think about any ti
  19. Why not just say co-op instead of Lan support? And yes, co-op would rock like Mr. Spock.
  20. Moreso than PE, W2 or SRR, I'd dearly love top see an updated NWN style game get KSed. Good mod tools should be standard with any good CRPG. Imagine, Fallout, Baldur's Gate, etc. would have 1000s of adventures today and would still be played regularly. I could honestly care less about all the stretch goals they made for this game - I'd happily trade them all for a good, easy to use editor.
