  1. I really like it, but the skills introduced are pretty much copy paste of skills in Dishonored 2, a game I adore!
  2. Yeah, you're on to something there, that's for sure. I do recall it being the second worst aspect of PoE1, the worst being the last quarter of the game (well, it's less if you are playing the XPs). And in PoE2, I'd say that ship combat is the worst part, and once again, the end of it all, unfortunately. Otherwise, two very entertaining and content rich CPRGs.
  3. Well, loot boxes inserted into upcoming games will clearly have to present your statistical chances of winning various stuff: https://www.polygon.com/2019/8/7/20758617/ftc-loot-boxes-policy-ps4-xbox-one-nintendo-switch
  4. From the Gamespot interview with Swen Vincke June 9: "SV: The previous Baldur's Gate games were based on Dungeons & Dragons 3.5. We're now Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition. " Why...? I never...!
  5. Yeah, this is my view in a nutshell. It's like the correct CRPG immersion dialled in for my taste. I have a gazillionth playthrough in the works right now, and I'm utterly hesitant at even entering Baldur's Gate. Ever since my first playthrough, I always have been. We've heard from Swen that the game will take place in a few sections of the city initially (I wonder for how long, though).
  6. Hmm, Octodad is the vision that pops into my mind, reading about this mindflayer romancing speculation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJKtJG7bDME Hmm, how to post a Youtube-vid? My old format doesn't seem to work... And here's a snippet from PCGamer's interview a week ago: 'Vincke suggests the game will be heavily systems-driven and Larian will be creating its own D&D-inspired ruleset. "We'll stay true to our roots, so we'll give players lots of systems and lots of agency to use these systems and try to accomplish what you need to on your personal adventure and your party's adventure. That's not going to change; that's the core of what we're doing. But then there will be an interpretation of D&D, because if you port the core rules—we tried it!—to a videogame, it doesn't work."' Will this be Sword Coast Legends all over again, with a few skill trees and skills on timers? Since that was a pretty huge mistake on their behalf.
  7. As do I. This is why I hold BG1 in higher regard than BG2. I really liked the scarcity of magical items, and also the whole deal of everything being threatening from the get-go (at least before you realized that you could cheese your way through via ranged weapons, etc.) Swen's statement certainly has me worried.
  8. One thing has been confirmed, though. Brian Fargo didn't lie. He knew that BG3 was in production when he wrote his little message last autumn.
  9. Heck, I'm been waiting for years for a game like this. I've been playing Sword Coast Legends this year only to get my D&D CRPG appetite whetted, and I've been humbly grateful for it even existing, so this is a day 1 purchase for me (prolly pre-order), unless it's an Epic Exclusive deal, that is. I mean, how bad can it be? *A rhetorical question that accidentally opened up Pandora's box*
  10. Yeah, at least not for a D&D Baldur's Gate setting. That is to be expected. What I'm after is a game faithful to that universe, and which takes it and that entire lore and history seriously. Indeed, this has me worried. If they can use their flexible CRPG making skills and ditch the Beetle Bailey writing, much would be gained.
  11. Enjoy your new green pastures, Aarik! We'll miss you!!
  12. I picked up Watch Dogs 1 & 2 for peanuts on Steam. I've seen you guys play it and post images from the game years ago, and one of these days, I'll get a chance to try this game series out myself. Looks interesting and pretty fun overall.
  13. I love that genre too. This is boding very well for some nocturnal sanguine extraction ex-sepulchre, as it were.
  14. Now, Marelooke and I are Keyrock's out-of-game Conan Exile thralls.
