  1. Probably a Barbarian or Fighter any race other than dirty Elf
  2. Glad to see the game showing more potential than I could hope for. Keep up the good work!
  3. I want a companion that is too stupid to be swayed by any social skills!
  4. I am the only one who picked barbarian? Seriously?! I can't wait to make some kind of elf destroying savage.
  5. It is one save that is deleted if you die. So, death is game over.
  6. Story? Perhaps the issue is noncombat and combat gameplay are equally important. In this style of game a player could hack and slash their way through, if desired. Instead, they could use diplomacy or find alternative objectives to bypass violent confrontations. In Fallout 1 you had to do some exploration and uncovering data to talk down the master, I thought. In New Vegas there are no antagonists, only potential adversaries. Torment has a lot of trouble with the combat design because DnD was not an appropriate class/skill system for what they were trying to do, but the Planescape setting was. They did not have a enough time and/or resources to overhaul the entire DnD ruleset to fit the game. I don't see why people are stuck on story when story-driven games can have pure combat gameplay (final fantasy). The main issue is diverse utilization of noncombat skills to achieve objectives as an alternative to combat.
  7. I would enjoy traversing the chaos of an insane deity's soul. The laws of physics could change at random and everything (including the party) could morph into weird stuff at times.
  8. Drakensang: River of Time allowed players a set number of experience points to distribute among skills and the opion to choose disadvantages that increase the number (while giving a penalty to something) or advantages that decrease the number (while boosting something). The only possible problem with it was that picking disadvantages that do not effect class builds was easy to do.
  9. I must be the only person who doesn't like tutorials because I read the ****ing manuals and understand what I can and can not do for the most part when I start the game.
  10. Whatever they do, please, dear god please, no freaking dark elves! The last thing I want to see is a masturbatorial DnD SnM fetish kingdom. The underdark was freaking annoying in that respect... hated every second of it.
  11. Does melf stand for, 'mother everyone likes to f....'? It would explain the phallic decay spell!
  12. I want to see Avellone's crazy cipher love laboratory! Each level could delve into different forms of love! The overarching theme could be an epic tragedy!
  13. The developer should always try to implement as many possible paths for a player to take when completing a quest, but the why should always be left up to the player. The world responds to what you do, but not necessarily why you do it. Diablo is a roguelike, and has no choices or consequences beyond combat. Take Fallout 1/2/NV as examples of an . There is minimal history of the protagonist, but a huge range of choices and consequences to what a player can do. The personality and motivations of the protagonists are always left to the player's imagination. Sure, they all have 2 overarching goals for each, but why the player completes them is left ambiguous. DA:O was better than DA 2 mainly because there was more player agency in what the motivations of the protagonist. The problem with rigid character history for the protagonist is that it limits what the player can realisticly do without breaking sotry consistency.
  14. Am I the only person who felt the Connor situation was best solved by using blood magic to enter the fade and killing the demon? This way the whiny bitch dies, the demon dies, the blood mage gets to die, and if I recall correctly there is an option to kill that noble douche too. So everyone dies except the kid! They were all annoying so I felt it was only fair to save their peasants from future melodrama.
  15. An initial quest where a family of rats hires someone to remove your party from their basement!
  16. You know that the romance option will be with some weird bug-like creature. The creature will always wear a helmet though... so talimancers could fap to it.
  17. A cursed item that alters dialogue choices.... showing your character's descent into madness! An item that randomly causes the player to be confused upon being struck! Shoes that increase speed but the soles burn your feet on contact so standing still causes damage! Gloves that increase strength but cause excessive grip which can randomly break/damage weapon hilts. Armor that snags weapons when struck , slowing enemy attack speed, but the design directs weapons toward vital areas so you take more damage. I could do this all night.
  18. I would prefer for abilities to stay static with maybe a few modifiers from spells/consumables. Items should directly effect performance values instead of stats. I love the SPECIAL system though, so I am biased.
  19. Why would the animal be "evil," though? Obsidian is moving PE away from the "good/evil" bit for their sentient races, so it makes less sense for an animal, reacting instinctively, to be "evil".... Just sayin'. IMO, a werewolf would be more reclusive and stealthy than VILENT BLOOD_THIRSTY KILLING MACHINE nonsense. I could see a wolfwere (wolf turning into a humanoid form) taking on humanity's blood-thirsty ruthlessness.
  20. All elves will be subterranean in PE after I genocide them. Dirty androgenous wankers the lot.
  21. Boob plate just looks weird, to me. Ware attire should involve function over form, but whatever characters wear off the battlefield isn't any concern of mine.
  22. I would rather see some type of berzerker or something that engages in animalistic behavior after calling upon an animal's soul or spirit beast. Call upon the soul of a mouse to increase the character's ability to inspect nooks and crannies for traps and treasure!
  23. Depends on the character your are leaving behind. If they are the mentor type you could lose some synergy skill they had with your abilities, daring roguish might take a shiny bauble, mercenary would collect coin, etc... EDIT: would be awesome if some religious companion would put a curse on you when you disband them.
  24. Having companions from rival factions/families/nations that compete against each other to demonstrate their superiority would be neat. Perhaps there might be gender rivalries due to a clash between companions that come from patriarchal and matriarchal societies. Maybe there will be a bitter divorced or widow/ered companion jealous of one that is in a successful romantic relationship. There could be a patronizing companion that is smug and aloof, feeling he/she is above the role they are playing in the group and there only due to necessity. Lots of things they could do, and I only came up with some cliche ideas.
  25. Perhaps the detective is like the ones in I Heart Huckabees. An existential detective who helps people discover the nature of their souls.
