  1. Greetings,

    today the physical rewards arrived here in Germany.

    I should have received the physical rewards for the following tiers:
    Build a Pirate Party

    Create an Item

    Plus one extra additional mouse pad

    What I can confirm:
    Signed Collector's Edition - check, yes, TWICE
    Od Nua Statue - check, yes, TWICE
    Hardcover Guidebook Volume II  - check, yes, TWICE
    Space Pig Plushie - check, yes, TWICE

    But it seems several smaller items are missing. Are they INSIDE the Collector's Editions?

    What I couldn't find was the following:
    Space Pig Pin
    Cloth Map 
    Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Patch (a cloth patch)
    8x10 Concept Art Print
    Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Game Manual   

    TWICE of each! I only found the one extra mouse pad that I had ordered separately.

    Please let me know, thank you.

    Regards, Fluffle

    I love her! I love Helene Bøksle! Norwegian is such a beautiful language and her songs are pure magic in my ears :wub:
    Here, some of my favorite songs from her:

  3. Yeah, I thought the consensus problem with Ubisoft-developed games is that they're all fairly similar sandbox-type games that share a lot of mechanics and have loads of copy+pasted content.

    It has been ages since I last played a Ubisoft game (not counting HoMM3 HD). So that wouldn't be any problem for me anyway. Even if they copy+pasted content from their other games, it would be new to me.


    But the thing about Assassin's Creed Odyssey is, that they are in fact trying to change the series. They are changing the genre of the series to RPG.


    So it's not "same old, same old".

    Certainly not for AC Odyssey within the game series Assassins Creed. This one is going to be very different from its predecessors.


    Of course, now fans are outraged that this isn't a "true" Assassin's Creed game anymore...

  4. Sea Shanties? Check! Sea Battles? Check! An open world with lots of islands to explore? Check.

    Deadfire? No... Assassin's Creed: Odyssey!

    And look at those Sea Battles! That's the way to do it.

    If you'd excuse me now, I have a train to catch.

  5. See, I find this very interesting. How a game that makes some radical changes within its game series suddenly attracts completely new gamers.


    I don't know any of the Assassin's Creed games but I've read that this new one is supposedly very different from the previous games. It even seems that there are some fans of the series who don't consider this game a "true" Assassin's Creed game. I don't know what that means, lol.

    But here we are. Suddenly our interest has been piqued in a game that is part of a series that is over 10 years old...

    Oh and.... uhm... if anyone is interested in the difference between "to peak", "to peek" and "to pique"... :p

    Another way to distinguish peak and peek:

  6. Oh god..let's hope not ! DAI sucked ! crappy loot , crappy vilain , crappy armors ...(well gameplay was fun and so were the romances) but thats about it . Open world filled with Codex to read.....booooring .


    I wouldn't say DA:I sucked (for me anyway). It had many problems and weaknesses, true. I still found myself enjoying it though.


    But anyway, what I would be hoping for is that Assassin's Creed Odyssey would be some kind of improved DA:I (just as already mentioned without the companions).


    So I don't hope that it will be just like DA:I, but instead an improved and polished version of it.


    And, damn, the more videos I watch about Assassin's Creed Odyssey the more hyped I get. It's very unusual for me to get hyped for a game of a video game series that I don't know. Normally I stick to my video game series, like the Infinity Engine games, or Dragon Age and Mass Effect. And I follow them loyally throughout the years (though I didn't follow Mass Effect into Andromeda).

    Even when Pillars of Eternity came about, for me, it was just a continuation of the Infinity Engine games.


    But Assassin's Creed is something new. Something unknown. A stranger. A wild card. I guess, that's partly also where some of my excitements comes from.

  7. What is Vromance? I can only find this about Vromance. 

    I don't know Titan Quest. From the games I have played, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey seems to resemble Dragon Age Inquisition most.

    Dragon Age Inquisition had also very beautiful areas. Sadly, most of them were almost empty (with the notable exception of the Hinterlands). And the side quests were rather bland...

    One major difference seems to be that there are no companions in Assassin's Creed? I could live with that though. I do like companions, but since I have played so many games with companions it will be interesting and new for me to play alone with just the main character.

  8. What also caught my attention is Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. I have never played an Assassin's Creed game. But from what I have heard this game is going to be very different anyway from the predecessors in that it is going to be an actual RPG.

    I also watched a few gameplay videos and I liked them a lot.

    Not to mention the fact that the game is going to include... ROMANCES  :wub: 


    Oh boy...

    And it looks really beautiful. Only problem I might have is my graphic card which is about 8 years old...

  9. The watcher has been told first hand what happens to people that tell other people that their gods are fake.

    I don't think the watcher is keen on putting a target on their back and become another Iovara.
    I also think that for us it would have been boring to replay Iovaras's story just with the watcher in her footsteps.

    And here comes the thing about "proving" that Gods aren't real (independent from what "real" or "fake" means):
    Belief trumps evidence. Always. That's the thing about belief. Your own god could appear in front of you and tell you that he is fake.
    You think that could stop a religious person?

    I would guess they'd see it as some kind of test of their belief. They would think their god is testing them. And probably that would strengthen their belief.

    If you try to prove a god is not real you would have to find some kind of proof that is valid from a true believer's point of view, not just your point of view! But the very definition of being religious is, that a true believer would never accept anything that would decry their religion and shatter their belief.

    People believe what they want to believe. And people need to believe. And some people would rather kill someone who'd try to make them second guess their belief than to actually start doing just that.

  10. What's the problem with Might? It's not "strength" and the game even describes it as physical OR spiritual strength.

    Well not quite. You see the problem is, that "might" starts with an "m", just like "muscle". Hence it's only logical to assume that "might" can only mean physical strength.


    Of course you could try to see "might" as some kind of abstract attribute of power (be that power physical or non-physical in nature) but for very sensible and obvious reasons you shouldn't do that.


    The reasons are so obvious in fact, that I need not name them and yet everyone will know them anyway.

  11. Well, uhm, well, you know I am not fond of these changes.

    But it's not like my opinion has more weight than that of my fellow BIB backers. And more of them voted for yes than for no and Boeroer did give a good reason for why it should be a club.

    I guess, I'll live... somehow...

    The Kapana Taga is not an obsidian sword anymore... and it has been nerfed...

    If you'd excuse me now, I'm gonna cry and lick my wounds...  :mellow:  :(  ;(
