  1. I don't seem to display either of my badges but they are both listed on my profile page?
  2. I'm wondering if the higher levels of backing ($250+) will have access to one of each? I'm probably going with Steam for my first code but I wouldn't mind a GOG copy for ease of Modding. *P.S. My Backer Badges seem to be missing?*
  3. Please take all the internets that you have won from me
  4. Doesn't the pitch video also explain that each companion will effectively be written 3 times (As both a positive, neutral and negative incarnations) and all the art assets that this entails? So doesn't that really mean 24 basic threads/plots to write. After that you have the interaction of the party members with each other and this must also be all done in triplicate??? That is one complex plot web. I have faith that the writer of PS:T is up to the task but do we really think that all these combinations is not already quite a high ambition???
  5. In this case I think that "more is less" as time and budget mean a restriction on iteration. With 2 head writers you have to take into account that all variables must be explained to the other writer and they must keep each other updated. More individual group dynamics make this a very hard thing to scale up well without losing details or plot tightness. Is no one seeing the possible narrative angle of the number 8 ??? With the whole Eternity/infinity (with the 8 knocked on its side) and the link to soul paths it may be that the plot kinda needs the input of 8 Companion NPC's. Wh
  6. Stories and sagas are driven by three basic things LOVE, DEATH and GOLD. (or Family, threats and resources to put it in more boring terms) To take any of these vital elements of story telling out and you have a lesser story. Romance is a huge narrative imperative and any good game will include it (even if it is in its subverted form like in PS:T) I found enjoyment in the Aribeth de Tylmarande story in NWN and the fact it didn't work out till much later in the series (in a kinda odd way) was a nice ending and a good story. I think the ROADBLOCK ROMANCES that bioware seemed to put
  7. The problem with discussing things people are passionate about is that they are passionate about them People will disagree with you on nearly every stance you take but to reduce it to the fact that they "HATE" BG seems a bit extreme. I've just replayed both from GOG and BG does feel dated and lacking in some area's but that doesn't mean I hate it. Just because I like torment better doesn't mean I think BG has no value and I don't think many people (Bar Trolls and the poorly educated) would try to write off one of the 2 major sources of inspiration for PE. Another thing to keep in
  8. Does that mean you backed out of getting the game??? Best update the Obsidian Order to show you left thread or jump on PayPal before they close it and you lose your O.O. title. I don't see anything wrong with people who didn't hear about the project having till Christmas to pledge or Upgrade. Preproduction has started and has a pot of cash that is a minimum. Obsidian has mentioned it is not doing full hiring or going into full production for a bit so a window while costs are still being assessed is available. During this period as much extra fund raising as possible helps us all to ge
  9. Also could it be made clear how people can use PayPal to add to a Kickstarter order as it will save you guys time processing it all. (I kinda want to add the playing cards and CD soundtrack but can't do it till November as the $250 + O.O. $8 have put me @ my limit as they were more important)
  10. I think "Slacker backer" or late backing should be available for the next month and a bit (Till christmas) with the same tiers just missing Kickstarter exclusive badge and item (Green Shirt). After that the Obsidian store should be up and pre-orders and a different (lesser) set of extra's should be available till launch (whenever that ends up being). Hopefully at Launch a pre-order for the expansion (I already have it) with kickstarter like tiers to get featured in the game/design an inn etc. This is cash Obsidian otherwise wouldn't see (Only $25 for each expansion) and you already kno
