  1. ARE there people who are already streaming it, though? I thought there was an embargo until release. Maybe they should be reported? I'd have thought that they gave out copies to Let's Players early either so they can get accustomed to it (for streaming) or so they can pre-record their videos and upload them on release. Not for streaming it before it's out. (IF anyone's doing that.) In any case, I'm super excited! I kind of thought it would release today so that turned into a downer this morning. ^^ But I can handle 3 more days, I guess. Not sure how to manage my time after release though. I do have a master's thesis that's due in a couple of weeks. http://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Pillars%20of%20Eternity Yupp, but I think I'm over it already. Just have to be very careful at work for the couple of days since there are people at our studio that will certainly spoil stuff. You know an article/review with some photos is not the same as stream of 15 hours of playing the game ARE there people who are already streaming it, though? I thought there was an embargo until release. The embargo was lifted on the 23rd (today here, but several hours ago anyway). And like it or not, but youtubers/streamers are considered media now. Hell, some of them have hundreds of thousands of followers. As for other people watching it, that's not an issue for me. I'm not going to, as I want my experience to be unspoiled. If others want to see the game before they play it, then that's their choice. Don't know why that would make anyone feel bad. If anything, you should feel good that it may inspire people to buy it that may otherwise have given it a pass or not have even heard of it. Yes they are considered media indeed, that is why I said I think Im getting old. It is nice you can be so positive about it but seriously, people would get inspired a few days later just the same. Its kind of the same feeling when you would get the game a day or two later than the release date (later than others). Its actually pretty much exactly the same thing.
  2. I know. Anyways those are not game magazines that are playing. They are just streamers, some are just players who just make a living by playing games and making videos. Most of them don't even review games. I guess Im getting old. I am not blaming anyone. I am expressing my frustration
  3. It's not messed up - that's the way it always works. Media gets a press copy of the game for reviews so they can get their reviews out on day 1 or before (whenever the embargo is lifted). Pretty much SOP. Yeah thats just fine. That part is not messed up. What is messed up is that there are people streaming it. And thousands of people looking it being played. And most of us just cannot... we must to experience it by ourselves. Feels bad, anyone?
  4. I also never planned to open my collectors box. I don't need the physical stuff to be there. I have the digital copy of the game.... Seeing how the poll is going (people want the incomplete box).. this is a very sad day I can imagine many people who were thinking like us bought collectors edition boxes and even the very expensive boxes with autographs now suddenly it feels worthless. I don't want to research how to wrap the box in plastic by myself... Please... rather give digital versions of lore books, manual, map etc to people and ship a complete, polished game box with the game inside.
  5. I'd love to see more wilderness areas and companions. I don't mind if it pushes the release date by a couple of months.
  6. I think they should be something similar to what the Infinity games had. Here are some examples from Baldur's Gate and Arcanum. "I told you I was sick!" "There once was a man named Don, who fell asleep on his lawn. They thought he was pretending to be dead, then a tombstone fell on his head. And now Don is long gone." "Here lies Kelly, an Atheist All dressed up And no place to go" "Hey who blew out the candle? Hello?" "Ray- who said, "This damn game will be... the death of me!"" "There was a light at the end of the tunnel, unfortunately that light was a train." "Dave F. Slain by 13 Gibberlings, 4 Kobolds, 6 Ogres and 2 Dire Wolves. Ne invoces expellere non possis." (Do not call up that which you cannot put down.) "Here lies John W: looked up the mine shaft to see if the cart was on the way down. It was." "Here lies Henrik. Who was fatally burned 13 Mirtul, 1358, by the explosion of a lamp filled with "P.J. Stanford's Non-Explosive Burning Fluid"" Fire up BG and go check Nashkel graveyard for more if you want. In the end it is up to you and it does not have to be funny.
