  1. Just wanted to drop my two cents: I am gravely worried the obsidian will go the “Bioware route” – Obsidian is my favourite studio and I have been pre-purchasing/crowdfunding all of their titles, but with this acquisition.. Well, next game they are going to release, will be the first I will wait for reviews. And subsequent ones, too.
  2. Hi, As the release of new DLC is approaching (or has already approached) I was curious whether I will be finally able to receive key for "Digital Download of Expansion Pack" - however I have no such luck. Perhaps there is something I am missing? I have backed the game on Fig and paid extra for expansion pack, which is properly detailed on my order page. I have later upgraded my pledge, which is also propery detailed on my order page. Both orders are marked as having shipment status "done". Unfortunately, on "My Products" page I don't have any entry remotely related to PoE2 Expansion. The game has been redeemed on Steam, where I don't have either Season-pass or 1st expansion ownership. Is there anything I am missing? How can I redeem the expansion?
  3. I would guess that this note, under screenshots reel, suggest GOG version will be a thing.
  4. I think that people who cry "censorship" have no idea what censorship is, and how it differentiates from editing. First of all, if development studio does something you personally don't agree with, it's not yet censorship. Even if studio does it under public pressure, it's not yet a censorship. ( Here - Jim can explain it better than me - link ) What Obsidian did was politely asked joke author if they could remove it, and he agreed - that author agreed. Yep, I am going to repeat it for you guys - the author agreed. So it is as far from censorship as one can get. Besides, I quite don't get what people are ****storming about - all what was changed was a single, small and - for my tastes - not so funny joke. I didn't found the joke to be core experience of Eternity, or even remotely connected to reason why i am having fun playing it. Btw. I also found it to be not in the "mood" of game. Maybe if author of removed content would be against removing it, I could empathize a bit, but as it stand I really don't see much of an issue. From my point of view, the amount of people who's primary occupation is being offended is too high. Both sides are acting like spoiled children - adult, mature person can live with feeling that there is a joke he doesn't like in his game or a feeling that a single, not so funny joke was removed from his game. Edit: But after following the source of this change, I can't help but feel tiny-bit irritated. Does one angry person on twitter is all it takes to make Obsidian re-think their content ? Also, please read her other tweets. I think they can be more offensive than limerick.
  5. No such issue, Win 8.1 on board. That may be the root cause of issue...
  6. Mail? Or e-mail. Maybe you're just not a physical reward tier. Double check your entry fields for a drop down. I can't imagine what it would be if not country/state. Well I am a dumbass - of course you don't want my full adress if I am a digital tier and want to upgrade to another digital-tier ;d Still, can't give you my money - hope it will pass ;p It worked! ;p
  7. Hm.. I want to update my pledge - but it keeps giving me error at placing order and returning me at "/store/address". In comments in this thread I've learned that the problem was 'wrongly' typed in Country in adress section, but I have no ability to give my full adress - only name, surname, mail and phone number. Is this normal ? Edit: Also I am a sad panda - I've badges in my profile, but no signs of them in here.
  8. Just please, don't do dialogue circle (BioWare style)... they are terrible :/
  9. Ok, cause it’s really HUGE deal for me; I am going to make a second, large post concerning Polish/Russian distribution. What I will be writing down from perspective of someone living in Poland and somewhat likes Steam – I love games which are DRM-free, I hate DRMs but somehow Steam, and Steam only, has appealed to me. That’s why I would like to have PE connected with my Steam account. And that is where all of my hate is beginning to be alive. 1C/Cenega has a very particular manner of locking down games distributed in Eastern Europe – I cannot buy games on steam which are under their distribution. But… not a huge deal, I still get them in Cenega store right? Not entirely. I can buy the vanilla thing but not even a single freaking expansion pack to F3, F: NV, Skyrim etc. is legally available to me*. And that are only examples of games with such problems. So if I want to play PE on steam, I will be unable to buy DLC’s if there will be any. But let’s say that the problem above is gone. I still have to wait for the game to be translated before the release (I have not seen a single distributor who sold English only version of game, if translation was intended) and I have no guarantees that it will be available for me in completely English version. There are numerous examples of games which were released only in my native language and I hope I don’t have to explain why I hate translations and dubbing especially. Let’s say we have overcome even that problem. Then what we have to deal with is very bad translators. As I usually don’t play in Polish language I can only repeat my friend’s opinions which are… not good to put it lightly. There are only a few games that were translated well enough not to laugh at translation every goddamn third sentence. And about the dubbing… I am speechless. I still don’t get why companies do that. Ok, but… there are people who don’t know English I get it, Polish translation is needed, even if bad. Ho-ho-ho, welcome to customer support hell. We have many distributors here in Poland but only two which give me +1000 rage bonus – EA Games and Cenega. Terrible is an adjective which should have been invented to describe their support. And then there is my own prejudice against most of distributors in my country and especially Cenega. I would gave all of my money to Obsidian but if it means giving a single penny to that companies I may get off the board. I apologize for a bit chaotic opinion but I am really worried. If Cenega is mixed in this, will there be at least an option for bypass them in matters of downloading the game? Tl;dr: Hurr, durr I don’t like most of polish distributors, especially Cenega because of bad translations, terrible customer support, enforced polish-only games, most-likely later game release in my country, and FUBAR on Steam concerning Cenega games. Please give a clear answer: How this distribution is going to look like? Will anyone be forced to stick with those distributors? Will I have to stick with non-English version of game? Steam lock? Cause I am really worried now. *I am describing situation in some time after the release of game. After waiting long time I can re-buy the game in “Deluxe/Complete” Ed and have the DLCs. But not before. And not in Polish store but Steam. **And maybe those distributors will only do the translation... ? Meh... I need answers .
  10. ARRGHT !! Cenega/1C. NO, No, NO , NO ! Now I need clarification : would I be able to play original english version of game or not, and will my copy be locked only to Easter Europe. Please give a clear answer - I may love Obsidian but I will not give a single penny to those bastards at Cenega, especially if this means I can't play in English or get possible DLCs.
  11. Hi there, just upgraded my pledge. May I have the honour of naming myself Ghost Lord of Obsidian Order ?
  12. @Zombra I haven't had. Stop acting like your point of view is ultimately right and correct. I didn't went for discussion about pros and cons of urgency on purpose - simply because "In matters of taste, there can be no disputes" - I won't convince you, you will not convince me. However you did created the topic for devs to know your point of view, I responded to have my point of view noted. Simply as that.
  13. My main problem with obligatory urgency is that you can't say no to it. If you are playing game with no enforced urgency, you still CAN roleplay it and hurry your ass up, while when playing with enforced urgency you can't just say "I will take my time". I don't see why it's so important for people to have "timer" hard-coded, if they still can hurry if they want - the only thing it does is making everybody to hurry up. As a game-play option (putted aside from game difficulty) I have nothing against that idea - let the players choose what floats their boats. As something enforced on every player I am completely against it (I think cons overweight pros). (And the other discussion is matter of urgency in RPG. In my opinion and from my experience it is something terrible and awful even in pen&paper RPGs, and getting even more annoying, immersion-breaking and fun-spoiling in cRPGs).
