  1. Hah! I wrote off that series after the 2nd game. There was nothing left of the cRPG style that Bioware was* known for. I enjoyed Mass Effect 3 except for the awful ending, but as far as Dragon Age goes, I gave up after DA2. For some reason their more recent games work better in space.
  2. Feet. FEET!? A real gamer straps himself unto his chair and snaps his neck before even starting, then plays using his tongue and nose. A lifetime of handicap is no price too high for the true gaming experience. I have to admit you have a fair point, and it is indeed a far more rewarding challenge to use my face only to truly experience this game the way it was meant to be. Also, lending the neighbours cat and putting a significant amount of catnip on the keyboard enhanced this even further, my face may be utterly maimed but I finally find this game challenging enough. Thank you, this grea

  4. Indeed, I play the game solo with no armor on PotD with both my hands behind my back (use my feet instead) and the screen turned off and it still isn't difficult enough, we clearly need something more challenging.
  5. I find Aloth to be more and more useful the more I play the game, using wizards to debuff stronger enemies and then nuke them have made a lot of fights easier and faster. And I know there's a lot of spells I underutilize at the moment, so it might just be that the learning curve for wizards is a bit higher than other classes. As for low level ones being useless, having a lvl 2 wizard in BG who died on 2 shots and could cast 3 magic missiles each rest and nothing else, while being mosty useless with his low thac0 and a sling... Aloth was at least more useful at lower levels, and just like B
  6. Probably a typo, but I'd love it to be real and hear the discussion at Obsidian for setting the damage value at precisely 13003. "13000 isn't enough, we need just a little bit more damage, but don't put it at 13004, that's just too much".
  7. Tier 1: Durance and Grieving Mother. Might be that they remind me most of the PS:T companions, but I really like the way their stories unfold, and their dialgoues are great. Hated Durance for the first hour or so, then he grew on me. I loved GM from the first time I got her, there's just something about they way she's written that I really enjoy. Tier 2 (or Tier 1B rather): Aloth, Eder & Sagani Like them all for different reasons, Sagani and Eder seems so grounded which is feels comforting for my orlan. Aloth is interesting as well. Tier 3: Kana He's nice, but I tend to dislike b
  8. This reminds me of all the "killable children" mods that were made for various older rpg games from way back, not to mention the invisible ones in Fallout. But get really really annoyed by people who are easily offended, they are idiots and should spend the rest of their lives in a dark room with no contact with the outside world in order to not get offended anymore, everyone will be better off...
  9. Downloading the hotfix on steam now, thanks for the fast update and fix
  10. Really? You don't play many games. Guys, come on. You knew the deal going in when you opted for GOG. Their patching process is dog slow. You can't whine about your choice now. I specifically chose to get the game on Steam rather than GOG because patches usually arrive on Steam earlier and the updating of the patches usually causes me a lot less headaches as well. While it would be nice to have the game DRM free, which GOG provides, if fast access to patches is a priority, Steam is better.
  11. Pretty much what I'm thinking as well. I really want the physical goodies at launch, and having to wait another few weeks while the stuff comes to Sweden would be pretty annoying.
  12. Will be interesting to see if the Leafs trade for Loungo, and if they do, if he keeps being entertaining on his "unofficial" twitter account. And if he implodes like most goalkeepers seems to do when they play for the Leafs (same thing applies to the Flyers as well).
  13. I'd say artwork, I usually never go for a special edition of a game unless it has a book of artwork included, so it's probably one of the things I find most interesting. Then lore and developer insights about making games and such are probably the other two things I love to see. Although I find most updates interesting in some way or another, those three are my favourites.
  14. It's about time, finally something to do whenever I happen to be awake at night. Could be an interesting season with so few games, and a lot of players who haven't played at all during the fall. And yeah, please fire Bettman...
  15. I probably would enjoy if more weird stuff happened, depending on your location. If you're in the forest standing still for too long, a squirrel jump up on your shoulders and shoves two nuts in your ears, causing a deafness effect that you have to remove in some creative manner. Or maybe an orc goes by and decides to beat you unconsious. If you're in the city, a dog comes over to you and relieves itself on you. And in all places, there's a possibility of a miniature giant space hamster appearing, starting to punch your feet for 1 point of stamina damage every 10 second.
  16. You addressed the OP by writing this: Basically, Fearabbit created a poll about how much control we want over our NPC's, and you snapped at him for having the audacity to have an opinion on the matter that's not hardcore enough and for some weird reason assumed that he believes that everyone should share his opnion. Which is a conclusion that I don't share whatsoever, I consider it a good start for a discussion. However, I do agree that you acting like quite the "raging butthurt hardcore gamer redneck" within this thread, no offence. You're free to have a different opinion on the topi
  17. Hard to know for sure before we get more details, but probably a cynical, cunning guy who strives to be good but has a mean streak towards people he dislikes. And he probably genuinely cares about his companions.
  18. I'd be so happy to see Beksinski inspired art within the game, he's an incredible artist.
  19. Adahn's Eternity Project: EE (eternal edition) Eternity: The Raging Wrath of the Miniature Giant Space Hamsters
  20. IF that would happen, I'll simply wait a few months until the modding community has made 10+ mods which together will make the game awesome. But I really don't think the game will be a Project: Fail
  21. Neil Gaiman. Love the style his books are written in, and his sense of humour would probably work pretty well in P:E. Also wouldn't mind a little bit of Terry Pratchett insanity as well.
  22. I've kinda ignored the BG:EE for now, too much other stuff to do right now. But I did get PS:T from gog.com (lost my old discs) a week ago and I'm replaying it for the first time in 5+ years. It has aged surprisingly well, still my favourite game ever.
  23. My experience of the WoW boards and the dev tracker was that since staff from Blizzard posted fairly often, people in some threads seemed to get personally offended when they didn't get a dev response in the thread they believed was important. While the devs claimed it was to not disturb the discussion which made kind of sense there. And when some dev decided to have some fun in a less serious thread, then there were tons of people who were REALLY offended by that, not quite getting that making a response to a serious thread takes a bit more time than making a response in an off topic one.
  24. I have a soft spot for rangers, so it'll be one of those in the first playthrough. After that' probably a rogue or a cipher if I find that class interesting.
