  1. Sure, most of it. But I'm sure there was some discomfort. We like Obsidian. We don't want them to be disgusted by their own fans.
  2. Seeing the terrible harassment in the live stream comments last night made me cringe. I'd just like the Obsidian staff to know we're not all horribly misogynistic, racist, socially-stunted a-holes and we are sorry you had to see that. Sincerely, Hopefully the majority of your backers
  3. That's not evil, that's just being selfish and apathetic. Evil would be crushing them under your boot, or plotting to send them to a gruesome fate all while you revel at their suffering. Maybe selfishness and apathy ARE evil to that poster. That's the primary problem with alignment systems: everyone's moral compass is different, even within the same culture. The D&D alignments are based on Western ideals. You're basically saying evil = sadism, only. Some cultures have eaten people and it wasn't evil to them, though it is to us. Some cultures eat dog, and there's plenty in Weste
  4. In RPG's you are guilty of mass slaughter whether you're "good" OR "evil." That's the most ridiculous thing of all. If I'm trying to play evil but not a psychotic idiot, why would I choose to fight a big group instead of manipulating them with my diplomatic skills? But if you try to talk them down, you get good points for it. I want to talk them down and THEN murder them in their sleep and steal all their belongings. It's much easier for me and I probably get double the reward out of it. I know I definitely played NWN1 that way, and it was a lot of fun.
  5. Enchanted undergarments would make more sense than enchanted jewelry. Rings and amulets could get caught on something and cause serious injury. On the other hand, I wanna look purdy.
  6. There's no right option on that poll. They have to make modern graphics for modern resolutions. It's not possible or practical to make something at the level of any of those old games. Yes, I would sacrifice graphics for gameplay and story. No, I don't want a 640x480 pixel hunt.
  7. I think this could be said in half the threads on this board. I hope they don't limit their own good ideas by trying to stay too faithful to the old games. As good as they were, the old games all had flaws. The combination of the magic and rest systems was a pretty major one. Yeah, like I said I trust Obsidian to come up with something that's both fun and makes some kind of sense. Something I forgot to add is that I don't think casters should be physically weak. Casting spells would be physically demanding, imo. That's the one explanation I could understand with Vancian stuff - t
  8. I get that the explanation is something like that, from some book. It just doesn't make sense to *me*. I find Vancian casting really, really dull in low levels and really silly in high levels. I'll still play a mid-level wizard and enjoy it, but at the two extremes it's not remotely enjoyable. And how in the world does "holding" copies of the same spell in your mind and it takes up more than one spell slot make any sense? If you can memorize a certain number of spells based on your level, why can you only cast them once? What? Guess I'll hit the rest button after every battle. Basicall
  9. Vancian magic doesn't make any more sense than mana pool magic. Why can a 180 IQ wizard who's been studying all their life only memorize 2 spells? How many do you think YOU could memorize. I understand that maybe you'd screw it up from lack of practice, but I remember things I was forced to memorize as a child without thinking about them for 5 years. Note that I never read the books it was based on.
  10. Why is fishing put in EVERY game now? Can devs not think of anything else to pointlessly waste time? If there's going to be mini games, I prefer gambling/card games.
  11. Oh man, now it's the new SS2/Thief 2 patch. Just installed SS2 and it works perfectly!
