  1. I guess I never considered this a bug and therefore didn't post it there. I did provide spoiler warnings though because I knew this wasn't a spoiler forum. If a mod wants to move the topic, they can. I would be perfectly fine with that.
  2. Spoilers in the non-spoiler forums. And I said "minor story and companion spoilers" right there in my subject line. You're welcome.
  3. I got Grieving Mother to join my party before starting Act II. I haven't encountered Pallegina yet. I should also note I was level 5 when I got Grieving Mother to join my party.
  4. So I entered Defiance Bay and discovered that's how Act II starts. Me being the typical completionist OCD RPG player I decided to reload prior to that and explore the other parts of the Dyrwood before continuing on to Act II. This is standard operating procedure for me with RPGs. I never progress the story until I've realistically done everything I can up to that point. I know many other people who play this way so I don't think what I do is strange or odd as far as RPGs are concerned. Anyway, so I decide to explore the Woodend Plains and encountered Sagani there. She joins my party. She tells me of her quest and we continue on. Eventually I find my way to Pearlwood Bluff where I find an echo of the person she's looking for. Some dialogue ensues and at one point she says to me "what about this Thaos character you're searching for?". At this point I am confused. Who the hell is Thaos? Based on one of the dialogue options I can guess who he is, but my character shouldn't know that name yet. I certainly never mentioned it to Sagani so why the hell would she know this person's name? Immersion at this point is completely broken and I felt kind of spoiled at this point too. So, if there are any developers reading this, couldn't you have put in a check to make sure I hit the part of the story where this person's name is revealed to me? Or maybe not have the echo there until I hit that part of the story. I shouldn't be (punished is too strong a word probably) taken out of the game like this just for wanting to explore the map before progressing the main story. Thanks.
  5. THIS IS RUINING MY WHOLE DAY!!! (well maybe not the whole day, but right now it is. T_T ) EDIT: Something seems to be happening!
  6. When I was young, I decided that I'd never buy a game I could beat in a single rental or a single night. The games I said this about? Metal Gear Solid and Devil May Cry I gave up that policy pretty quickly. And it ultimately hit home when I looked at games, mostly multiplayer, that I had hundreds and hundreds of hours in and that really didn't do anything for me but kill some time. And I've come to value shorter experiences that use that time well over longer experiences that don't. 12 hours is even longer than many other games I do value. As long as it doesn't waste my time. The only difference being this is an RPG. People do speedruns of MGS and DMC as a way to show expertise. Rushing through an RPG is counter-productive. That's why I hope that the 12 hour thing is just journalists rushing through the game for a review. For instance, most reviewers clocked Deus Ex: Human Revolution at 20+ hours or so. But my first playthrough of that game took me 80 hours because I was playing it stealthy and ghosting every level. I can't ghost this game, but hopefully I can grind levels and whatnot. I have sort of been on media blackout re:this game for a while now so I don't really know any gameplay specifics.
  7. I imagine that's someone rushing through the main campaign. If not, that's disappointing because that's only 4 hours longer than it took me to beat Costume Quest.
  8. Probably not up to Obsidian. Should bring it up with Ubisoft.
  9. Steam URL: http://store.steampowered.com/app/213670/ Unfortunately I won't be pre-purchasing this game. I was looking forward to it, but I'm not paying $60 for PC games. I know it's out of Obsidian's hands but I have my principles. You see, the reason why games are $60 on consoles is because the publisher has to pay a license fee to the platform holder. That cost is roughly around $10. This is why PC games have historically been $10 cheaper than their console counterparts because there is no platform holder on PC. No, Microsoft does not own the "PC platform". Now publishers seem to be charging $60 for the PC game knowing full well that PC owners have "no choice" (ha!) to purchase them for that price. But all this does is line the publishers pockets with an extra $10. None of that money goes to the developer who are the ones who actually deserve it. If Obisidan was getting any of that extra $10, I'd be happy to pay the console tax on a PC game. But they aren't, so I won't. Gonna have to wait for a Steam sale on this one, guys. Sorry.
  10. I'd pitch in but I can't afford it. Hell, I can't even afford the $8 it takes to join that Obsidian Order thingie.
  11. The use of the spelling 'cipher' makes me immediately think of a spy or secret agent or something.. But yeah, they probably mean psionics. Either way, sounds cool to me.
  12. In my post 'Dihrwood' is how I was phonetically spelling 'D├╝rwood'. wasn't sure how else to do it.
  13. 'Direwood', 'Dihrwood' or 'Deerwood'? I've been pronouncing it 'Deerwood'? If there was an 'e' after the 'r' I would've immediately pronounced it 'Direwood". But without it, I instinctively pronounced it 'Deerwood'. 'Dihrwood' was another way I just thought of as I was creating this topic.
  14. The description "truly odd" makes me think of Modrons and the like. I'm intrigued by what you guys come up with. Also, to the people complaining about Elves and Dwarves, it's a fantasy game, you have to have elves and dwarves. What's important is Obsidian's take on elves and dwarves. I'm willing to trust them on this one. (tbh, I am a bit biased as I like playing as dwarves. )
  15. A Stephen Sondheim RPG, to be specific. I would prefer a Gilbert & Sullivan RPG. [A bit late for this comment but the system wouldn't let me post earlier. ]
  16. I seriously doubt this is anything but a new IP from Obsidian. A license would constrain them too much. I think that's already been established right?
  17. http://en.wikipedia....i/Boustrophedon ? Interesting. I guess it's true. You do learn something new every day.
  18. You should play Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines if you haven't already. Could change your mind on that stance. No. It never appealed to me so i see no reason to try playing it. Fine then. See if I care. I was only trying to be helpful.
  19. Highlander RPG would be awesome. But really none of these quotes I feel have anything to do with Highlander at all. And how boring would it be to play as a Watcher in the Highlander universe? They don't do anything.
  20. You should play Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines if you haven't already. Could change your mind on that stance.
