  1. I'm pretty much in the same camp. I'm tolerating Windows 7, but Windows 8 is making me seriously consider going across to linux
  2. I also really like the dialogue skills, particularly diplomacy/bluff type ones. It can be so much fun in a well written game to use these kinds of skills.
  3. I too am a massive fan of this Sagani portrait, and would love to see some more character portraits/concepts from this artist.
  4. Well, there's an overreaction. I can imagine Obsidian people reading this thread and either laughing or getting a headache. I'm not sure why, but this gif struck me as appropriate to the situation http://cdn.uproxx.co...-shirt-open.gif
  5. This video caused equal amounts of laughter and wtf for me.
  6. This thread is certainly delivering laughs, even if it has derailed the issue. For me, I pretty much gratuitous boobage in isometric games. I'd rather the costumes make anatomical sense and the range of bodies portrayed be normal, but I don't think it's a deal breaker.
  7. ^This. Please. An unwinnable encounter where I get my ass handed to me by an Elder God? Yes Please!
  8. I think Egyptian Kings often claimed to have multiple Ka, but I'm not sure if this is really relevant to the discussion.
  9. Good gear shouldn't make character progression meaningless. Ideally, it should enhance, but not overshadow your characters stats, imo, so I tend to agree with OP about this.
  10. I was trying not to procrastinate writing my essay, though I guess posting here counts as procrastinating. Now I'm going to have to go and watch this again.
  11. Now all I can think of is Monty Python's 'Life of Brian'. The scene where all the women are pretending to be men so they can attend the stoning.
  12. It would be cool to have these kinds of bargains or quests i think.
  13. I tend to agree, with only 8 companions having them kill each other would really suck. I know we have the adventurers hall but rolling your own companions just isn't the same as having unique, storied companions for me.
  14. I'm really torn between playing a rogue and a cipher. I'll probably start one of each and go from there.
  15. Yep. It's about survival. I think the mindset of "I must get XP for battles" comes in part from the fact that combat in games these days is so damn easy. So you need XP to make that mindless busy-work worth your while. I agree with you, if the combat is fun and challenging, and incorporated into the objective based system fluidly, I don't think not getting xp for every single insignificant enemy is a problem.
  16. Explain why one way should be and another not? They should both be rewarded with different and unique content. No, I think I have explained perfectly well, if the player wants to go around murdering everyone in real life they should accept the consequences of their actions, there is a reason why people who go on killing sprees end up dead. I just had an image of a bunch of do-gooder paladins hunting you down in game for burninating a village or other equally dastardly deeds. Could be fun.
  17. Only loosely related, but I'll tell you what I really hate about music in some games. You're strolling along, when suddenly epic orchestral battle music starts. You get your sword/fireball hands ready, look around, expecting a dragon or a bunch of orcs or at least a rival adventuring party, only to discover you're being attacked by *insert ****ty low level enemy here*. Massive anticlimax.
  18. PS:T and KOTOR2 are no. 2 and 3 of my top 3 favourite games of all time, respectively, and I love BG/BG2 also.
  19. The right music doesn't necessarily require an orchestra, or even that it be played on the instrument it was written for. Case in point: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKLpBBWIvRs I wouldn't be opposed to the score for this game being played on modern instruments eg. electric guitar, though admittedly my taste in music is pretty eclectic.
  20. I was pretty certain this game was going to be fantastic anyway, however with the extra money from the 4 mill stretch goal for polishing the game I'm now even more excited. Which I didn't think was possible.
  21. Chocolate, or the lack thereof.
