  1. People should be more concerned about achieving real stuff and not so much about videogame achievements.
  2. No VO. Unless everybody speaks Simlish. Choo wagga choo choo Blursh! Meshaloob! Blursh! Benzi chibna looble bazebni gweb
  3. I must say that Voyager is my favourite of all ST series. It has its weak points too but I found it rather enjoyable compared to stuff like DS9. Or Enterprise. I do prefer Stargate though. Any of it non cartoon incarnations. Where is the reboot???? Still too soon? Just make sure it's not like the "I want to be Star Wars" reboot of Star Trek... Er... and PoE is not mediocre. Because I say so. There. Not totally off-topic.
  4. I'd go for 4.5 but that not being an option, maths say that I must round up to 5. Which is ok to me because clocking more than 140 hours with it in the first weeks is a good sign in my book. Some more patches (as needed) to fix what's broken, improve some of the stuff and then for "Wheel of the Betrayer" or "Storms of Adra" or "Champions of the Vailian Republics" or ... whatever name for the expansion.
  5. "I would also say that any sufficiently mediocre game is indistinguishable from a bad one" Ignorance! Ignorance! Seriously. Also, DoW II portraits? Really? That broke my immersion of the review. Worst game by Obsidian? Haha. To each his own, of course.
  6. You don't fix it. Should we remove classes because some people may not use them ever? Do you force level scaling so completionists don't feel less challenged for doing all the content they can find? You have content and let the players play it in any way they like. Maybe some people should do more content in their playthrough, others should do less (specially if they plan to do more than one). Altough going completionist in a non level scaling game and then complaining about it becoming easy... *shrugs* To each his own. Hell, maybe Obsidian should sell the game only to selected people. "Do you have your hardcore ID? Yes? Ok, you can buy/play the game. You don't? Sorry, you are going to waste our content.". I'll play in any difficulty I want and no one has the authority to tell me how to have fun and/or with what I should be having fun or if I fit their subjective labels. And don't get me started on people having different skill levels and such.
  7. Fighter. Since Neverwinter Nights I have the tradition of starting each new rpg I play (and that allows it) with a sword dual wielding fighter. Also, it's one of my favourite classes. Hell, I'm doing a full fighter party playthrough right now (tank, melee dps, ranged dps).
  8. Main playthrough is about 93 hours and still pending: -Levels 8-15 Od Nua. -Lighthouse what? -Some companion quests like Sagani's. -Two of the initial four bounties (not sure what's after those). -Birds. -Jump into endgame after making a choice. I have "wasted" some time reading the cyclo... er... bestiary. Checking recipes, gear, debating with myself about why sadly I must remove Sagani from the team, sightseeing, stuck in some conversation screens trying to decide what to choose, shopping, defending the stronghold,....
  9. I'll let you guess. Here is a hint: http://i.imgur.com/z6nxbSB.jpg
  10. Aliens. But without being Aliens because licensing. So.. "Xenos". Or something. Recycle whatever they had before Sega cancelled it.
  11. I go dual wielding swords but anything else (maces for DR could be sweet) including ranged should work. Other classes being better at those is irrelevenat unless you must go for most efficient/effective OR difficulty setting (PotD?). No knockdown but disicplined barrage (which I wish I could get extra charges much like you can with knockdown) so you get boost to accuracy early. Weapon focus/specialzation for extra accuray/damage. Modal for DR. Stuff like Unbroken for the protection side of things because damage happens. Mostly in bosses/bounties. A DPS fighter is good. A rogue would be better but fighter is still good if you like the style. In my party, only Aloth (which has never left the party since he joined) is close to damage done*. Sagani was raising fast for a late comer but I have switched for Pallegina in last part of the game (need more melee to distract big ogres and stuff like that while Aloth and Mother do their mumbo jumbo). * and only Edér is close to damage received....
  12. When you have classes and all those fancy skills, talents and such... yeah, combat better be a big focus or you have been wasting in those. I do like this combat system, barely ever use any potion, never food (yet?). The story part? I like it too and it has been a very long while since I have been staring at some conversation screen trying to decide what to choose because of story consequences (inmediate ones at least as with almost 90 hours, I haven't finished the game yet). TO each his own and I'm having fun with this game. If only I could manage to figure out how to make a wizard I'd like to play... becuse as in IE games, I don't like wizards. XD
