  1. Also having this, any news on if it'll be fixed next patch?
  2. Just FYI, I am a trans woman, and I was pretty displeased with that memorial, and was writing to Obsidian about it when I saw this update. I knew immediately which text they were talking about because, no, it's not just one crazy person on twitter - That joke was hateful and mean spirited. Guess I need to be raked over the coals too. Kind of horrified at the bile that's come out of this community in response, too. I may be a fan of the same games, but evidently that is as far as common cause goes.
  3. I got really excited until I realised my Wasteland 2 key was included with my Torment pledge not my Eternity one. Curses!
  4. The ability to mark your map and write your own notes is definitely something I'm wanting.
  5. The only thing that really perturbs me along this line is more the race side of thing - It seems like there'll probably only be one companion of any particular race (save maybe human), which would be a little sad (but unavoidable). Still, other NPCs should be nicely fleshed out along the way, so I suppose we'll still get to see the contrasts between different characters of the same race.
  6. Good meaty update, though this line seemed strangely offhand. Revising the whole theme of the game seems like something pretty significant.
  7. Whilst almost everyone in New Vegas counts, this morning Vulpes Inculta sprang to mind. Your first encounter with him can't fail to make an impression.
  8. I think Arcade actually had a lot of good material, but it was all very very end-loaded. If you stick with Arcade through the For Auld Lang Syne quest chain, I think he's got the same depth as Veronica. Veronica's background is better paced and parcelled out though.
  9. Isn't a level up system a staircase normally? The gain of experience between levels is the sweaty, fumey part. But I see what you mean. Rather than a staircase of +0s and +1s, you're envisioning a sort of +0.1, +0.1, +0.1, +0.1, +0.1, +1.5 type progression? It's interesting, but in terms of actual gameplay effect I'm not sure it'd really be noticeable to devote the resources to. If you want to go down that path, I think a more rewarding area to look into would be in revising and adding nuance to the way skills are learned itself. Like you, I've given this a bit of thought, but my dinner's ready. I'll post more later.
  10. Point being that you liked the characters that you picked up, someone else would probably pick up different characters, thinking that the others where boring. That is my whole point in this thread, no one is going to like all the characters, but the more characters there are, higher the chance that someone is going to find some they like, regardless of how deep and engaging they are. That wasn;t my point at all. My point was I had absolutely no feeling about ANY of the characters. ? Well, ok, I didn't pay attention to the original team either. What I meant was once I had a team of six I couldn't be bothered swapping anyone around because none of them felt characterful. I picked my party out based on their combat mechanics and that was that.

  12. Yeah, I was talking about liking them more. So you played all the characters in BG in one play through? I never did that because I would only lose xp on them. I've played BG1 now, and honestly, no, I barely paid any attention to the slew of companions beyond the team I initially set up. Why? Because they were so shallow I wasn't invested in any of them. They get a paragraph of backstory, a few lines of meeting dialogue and some combat barks. That's not a character. I was really surprised how utterly characterless they were.
  13. Looks like I just got the email address thing confused.
  14. You gave them when you pledged. Not that I know of. kickstarter doesn't have my address (except as part of paying british projects but there it is for verification of the payment and is not recorded (if you believe ks is operating correctly)). Amazon knows my details but I'm pretty sure that amazon won't give those details back to KS projects (they would be violating EU privacy rights). I was under the impression that Amazon Payments gave your address as part of your payment details to the person you paid, and this was in the T&Cs.
  15. What I don't understand: Without fullfillment site how can they already know your details that you want to change? Or did they already ask us and I forgot? You gave them when you pledged.
