  1. Unfortunately, I agree with most of the people here that this particular censorship was unfortunate. It seemed like a single person (or small group) completely misread a very basic poem. This speaks of the person's lack of intelligence, and reveals a psychiatric issue this particular person copes with. The poem was clearly about the character's shame of having slept with another man with the appearance of a woman. It merely displayed the false sense of masochism men are meant to possess, and the character's masochism was brought into question so he killed himself. The poem was very much on t
  2. Go for the GoG version as others have said. The steam platform is only beneficial if you are online.
  3. Amazing artwork! Keep up the good work. Will definitely consider the Orlan for a druid character.
  4. The lesson is to always stay away from 4chan, and just let the hivemind do its thing in the shadows.
  5. It shouldn't be later for us, right? Considering their distributor/publisher resides in the EU. I just wish I knew what kind of service they are using so I know if it is possible to track it, or when it will probably arrive.
  6. Can't wait to watch the entire documentary. Ever since I played The Sith Lords and Neverwinter Nights, I have felt like Obsidian was one of the few companies that deserved to continue making their brand of RPGs. I am really happy I backed them, and pitched in.
  7. Oh, I am not complaining. Merely lamenting.
  8. Honestly, it seems that the complaints you are making are related to the Baldur Gate games as well. That one is click intensive too, and lack a single bar for party abilities too. I can't say much about the combat system. Even though I played the beta, I am not as mechanically well-versed as some of the other members. To me it felt like there was enough strategy. And again, Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 weren't particularly strategic either. A lot of your complaints are in the game to evoke the memory of the old-style CRPGs.
  9. It could quite easily be an obscure hardware related issue. I haven't had a CTD in the Backer Beta, so far.
  10. Although I understand that it could be considered distracting, I really do enjoy the narration mixed in with the dialogue. It gives me the impression I'm reading a book accompanied with interactive visuals.
  11. Well even if ignore the fact that your post is more or less a complete strawman, I want to make it clear that I don't actually mind the idea of "area-loot" that much, provided it works largely like in Wasteland 2, where you still end up looting every individual enemy. However, the overall issue is that this is symptomatic of changes that many of us dislike, and when taking into consideration together with many other changes (infinite inventory, magical stash teleportation, infinigold merchants, etc) it greatly cheapens the game in areas that we'd rather see uncheapened. Again, the logi
  12. It is quite interesting to see the divide between people who a really enamored with the old-style roleplaying game that they can't fathom any change to be good. It is a shame that it isn't optional, but to herald the advent of area-loot as the antichrist is somewhat ridiculous, and extreme. I've recently played through Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, and in the progress of playing through IWD, and none of you can convince me you actually like that type of looting, and if you do, I will assume you've only bothered with looting specific enemies and never the trash mobs. The system is outdated, hasn't a
  13. Honestly, I don't mind waiting for the physical disc if I'm getting an alternative digital version I get to install on launch day. The biggest reason I backed at this level was for the physical goods.
  14. And that suddenly changed my whole FFVII experience for the better!jk - I still find it horrible But I'm not interested in arguing - if someone enjoys that kind of story telling then why should I tell him otherwise. It was never about arguing really, there was simply nothing in the story to indicate romance. It is a much stronger narrative if people realise Tifa is doing her best to make Cloud remember, including an attempt to replicate past infatuations. But she is really nothing more than his best friend. Aeris's interest stems from the fact Cloud imitates a part of Zack's history, her
