  1. Okay, for starters, which proof are you after exactly? Because I listed a lot of issues from a lot of sources over the years, as well as some personal experiences on my own as well as those of others I've read over the years. Regarding Alan Wake for example you can find the rundown of the PC version being canceled by Microsoft and then Remedy deciding to self-publish it later on the game's wiki page, though I'm not sure where the article is any more that revealed it was around 90% done at the time. I just remember that from back in the day. When it comes to Microsoft's first-party titl
  2. Like I said, those were the exceptional titles canceled under extreme conditions. And looking at the amazing tittles that nobody wants to mention like:Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Minecraft, Forza Horizon series, State Of Decay, ReCore, Ori and The Blind Forest, Alan Wake, Max... the list literally goes on. In order Quantum Break = Meh, and Steam version ran far better and didn't arbitrarily restrict OS and DX Sunset Overdrive = Meh, only came to Steam recently thanks to THQ Nordic Minecraft = Not originally made by Microsoft and acquired later. MS have shown clear favoritism to th
  3. Fable Legends, Project Spark, Scalebound, Phantom Dust remake... Not to mention all support for their first-party GFWL titles like Halo 2, Gears of War, Fable III, etc. At least some others like Capcom, Rocksteady, Codemasters, 2k, etc. had the decency to convert their titles to Steamworks.
  4. We have lost Obsidian. Being assimilated by the Borg into the collective is still essentially the death of the individual.
  5. If you need some financial assistance and stability, then at least hook up with a company that is in line with your ideals and values. Until now I thought that Obsidian was pretty much the antithesis of a company like Microsoft, and that there would have been no way that they'd share the same mindset when it comes to gaming. But now they've just got in bed with them it seems this isn't the case.
  6. Sorry Obsidian, but I'm now done with you. I will never buy another one of your products now that you're part of the greedy corporate devil that is Microsoft, a company that not only doesn't understand PC gamers and the PC gaming environment, but actively tries to sabotage it and force its own agenda through stubborn and arrogant methods. The disaster that was Windows 10, the lies about DX12, and the horror of GFWL, UWP and the Windows Store are just some examples of how Microsoft have been nothing but harmful to PC gaming for the past decade and a half. I thought you guys were better than
  7. This may seem petty, but I have decided I won't get Pillars of Eternity II now because of this. Sorry Obsidian, but 9 times out of 10 when a complex RPG that should stay on PC ends up going to console too, it ends up resulting in the whole product being watered down and oversimplified in the sequels for the sake of platform parity and it isn't long before the console version is dictating the direction of the game. If you can prove me wrong I may pick up the sequel later on, but as it stands I will not get invested in another RPG series just to see is sacrificed on the altar of panderin
  8. I've run into a problem with this quest. I've given Purnisc the ring like Kaenra asked, but when I got to report back to her she asks me if I have and the only dialogue option I have is that I haven't. I don't seem to be able to finish or continue the quest.
  9. Thanks Obsidian. Having a great time with this game so far. Nostalgic in all the good ways.
  10. Wasn't there something about needing to get the Steam version if you wanted to expand the game with official content such as expansion packs, etc? Or did that change or am I mixing that up with another kickstarter project I've been following recently?
  11. Which should be already given it's already past 7pm here on the 26th, right? On Steam I see we need to wait 10 more hours... Well in 2 h I will go to work, soooo 10 hours is perfect While I'll have to go to bed in about 5 hours and have work the next day It is kind of annoying for Steam to say that it "releases on the 26th" but still have a 10 hour countdown that will take it into the 27th here. I'd have at least thought they would have altered the date shown locally (they often do on Steam, but haven't with PoE for some reason?) so as not to cause confusion and semi false-advertisi

  13. Are the other digital awards yet to go up, because all I can see at the moment is my Steam code for the main game and the one for the beta? Shouldn't there be a way for me to get hold of my... Digital Strategy Guide. Digital Novella by Chris Avellone. Digital Campaign Almanac. Digital download of the Cooking with Tim Cookbook – An RPG-themed e-Cookbook. Kickstarter Exclusive In-Game Pet.

  14. Well, that depends. I mean, my internet connection is fine, but it the preloading is left too late, some backers who aren't as fortunate with their internet connections may still be downloading it still while standard Steam customers are playing it because it's all already ready to go.
  15. How many times are you going to post variants of this? I think this was #3. There should only be one more, and that's if standard customers get to PLAY THE GAME before me, which seems increasingly likely at this point. Hopefully that's not the case. I don't mean to seem impatient, but it's not the delay so much as it is the principle of the thing. Why should people who just passed by and clicked a button without ever really knowing about Pillars of Eternity be getting the game before somebody who put money towards its development and supported it from the start? I feel like I bought fron
  16. So now I discover my friends can preload the game on Steam. Meanwhile, I'm a backer and don't even have a code to redeem on it, let alone preload the game That seems fair.
  17. I've got two friends who already have Pillars of Eternity listed as an owned game because they preordered through Steam, not because they were backers. So they've already essentially got their keys. I've been a backer for years, and I don't have mine. That just doesn't seem right. At the moment, my two friends essentially own the game, but I do not. They will definitely be able to play it when that Steam counter ticks down, and backers are still up-in-the-air on the issue. I don't see how any standard preorder Steam customer should basically have their keys and backers not. That suggests t
  18. With 2 days and 3 hours to go listed on Steam and no keys yet, I'm starting to become concerned that standard Steam customers will be able to access the game first. As a longtime backer, that doesn't seem right. I hope the email arrives soon.
  19. It could become part of GOG's already growing collection of movies. For just a couple of bucks anybody could see it if Obsidian let it go up there too.
  20. My guess for the cancelled project would be the Wheel of Time game. I'm pretty sure I remember reading that Obsidian had a licence to make one based on the Robert Jordan series, but that it was canned.
  21. I think too many people on the anti-romance side seem to think the definition of "romance" is essentially "getting hot and heavy under the sheets" and nothing else, and treat it like that's what everybody on the pro-Romance side wants. A game having romance does not mean the game becoming a Japanese Hentai dating sim. Nor does it mean that every part character has to become bisexual and into you no matter what ala a certain awful BioWare game.
  22. I have to say, I'm rather disappointed. And I think too many of the anti-romancers tend to point out the worst examples too often. To me it's not so much a disappointment due to "teh sexxorz!!1" or anything like that, but because I feel the game and characters in it will learn some depth to them if that's just not a factor. If you wander around a universe where such love exists, then it seems stupid not to be able to express that emotion yourself, and for those in your party not to be able to reciprocate or reject you. You've essentially removed whole emotions and a whole facet that is an
  23. To be honest, as much as I like Chris and PE, the Orlans sound pretty much exactly like The Elder Scrolls' Khajiit. Not that there's anything particularly wrong with that, but to say "I don’t think there’s actually an equivalent of them in standard fantasy fare" isn't exactly true. The whole "cat people" thing isn't a particularly new concept.
