  1. Aerie , a lovable elf mage with a great personality On a similar note also, Merrill from Dragon Age 2 for similar reasons. Virgil from Arcanum, a great helper character who had his own demons. Minsc from Baldurs Gate, a great warrior with a nutty personality that provided the odd laugh. And finally Gar from Arcanum, I was going to kill him for being an Orc even an intelligent one, but without spoiling anything, he turns out far more interesting.
  2. Since there is only one voted I put it in for the sheer scope of dialogue possibilities and subjects, but what makes Arcanum great to me at least, was the sheer scale of the game one that had a rich setting that, offered a large variety of character builds with choice and consequence game play. Even at the time I didnt mind Arcanum rather muddish looking graphics everything else was great, well maybe not the combat but youl could smash every orc to pieces.
  3. Definitly an old school game (with turtles you can ride which is interesting),the video is funny and it seems almost incredible that its been in the making for 17 years! but why the whole cave painting bit?
  4. I feel the orcs should be the classical evil creatures they have always been, evil creatures fit only to be dangerous foes to the player and defeated as such Sure there should be different factions of them but their unifying strand would be how evil they are , I believe thats how it was done in Icewind dale games and most other good games.
  5. I really like playing as a mighty paladin smiting evil creatures, Im indifferent towards a bard though , it never struck me as a class that I wanted to be but more classes the better!
  6. its sad to see the kickstarter progress stall on this one, I wander if its due to other projects going on with kickstarter leaving people strapped for cash. A real shame though nexus the jupiter incident had the best explosions in a computer game , the ship would lose control and keel over with a voice saying 'warning ship being evacuated' and then the explosion would actually send wreckage spiraling away in all directions - so immersive. It was brilliant, it was art, but the slow kickstarter for the sequel doesnt leave much hope for a sequel.
  7. Hordes of creatures that you can cut to pieces with ease just like in neverwinter nights
  8. I voted that all ammunition should be limited, it would make combat alittle more exciting knowing that your archers might run of arrows and need to switch to a sidearm (dagger or such like) and having infinite anything to me, would damage immersion. (carrying infinite arrows!)
  9. Interesting points you make, perhaps I am mistaken about the Yumi types of bow being best in its class (for bows) and plate armour seems to have..worked , it seems strange because historically in some battles plate armour seemed just silly and offered no protecton (like at agincourt?) and its entered mainstream that arrows overcome armour in a single shot making the former worthless. (and weighty not to mention pricey too) That is a good point though loladanee the archers capable of quickly notching and loosing arrows with great acuracy and power should be reserved for those players that h
  10. Pledged on Nexus 2 kickstarter, really enjoyed the first nexus game, I hope they make their 650k target
  11. Hello all I was trying to see Dredd but it got pulled from cinemas near me, which was..terrible , but I did get to see 'looper' which was pretty good, but when i left the theatre i couldnt help but think, it was rather...'adult' for a 15 rated certificate film, and Dredd is a 18. for those who have seen Dredd and Looper how does the 'adult/gore' level of the two actually compare? (no specific spoilers or anything needed) Im saddened that i couldnt get the chance to see Dredd at cinemas and even more so to hear the film is bombing hard and trying to work out why it went wrong for Dredd
  12. Hello all Something struck me during my everyday routine, in Project Eternity how powerful will bows and arrows actually be? Historically they were the most powerful weapons of their day, think of the battles of agincourt and crecy, or the mongol conquests, the hunnic warriors and japanese samurai. Potent powerful weapons, the arrows fired from bows would pierce and go through platemailed armour like a bullet through tissue paper. As such shouldnt bows like say the long bow or the Japanese 'Yumi' bows be considered the best not only in class? (certainly the japanese Yumi bow which like
  13. i would throw in that I prefer more realistic looking weapons, maybe some artistic flare since this is fantasy but nothing of insane proportions like the god awful sword in that first picture.
  14. i voted no im happy with what Obsidian can do - especially after playing New Vegas, i dont think there needs to be multiplayer or romancing. Although Jarmo makes a good point, it would be nice if the DVD will include a DRM free (no steam) copy of the actual game.
  15. References to modern movies etc Having to repair weapons too often (I liked new vegas but the rate that you had to repair was abit much) Anything that damages the immersion
