  1. ...and that's what's happening if people don't read: 1) Exactly! I was replying to: "[Epic] already have a better product [...:] no DRM" 2) Okay, I'll give you that. They are clearly better in terms of DRM, although not perfect. Thanks for completely misreading my argumentation, though. 3) Exactly. I was replying to: "[Epic] already have a better product in that you actually own the games you purchase" 4) Not my point. OP used a tu quoque and your points don't change the fact that Valve, as far as we know and in all likelihood[1], never paid any publisher money not to offer the
  2. You don't know what you are talking about: 1) Steam has DRM-free games: https://steam.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_DRM-free_games 2) It is publishers who push the DRM crap, and they do it on EGS as well Metro Exodus for example uses Denuvo: https://www.epicgames.com/store/de/product/metro-exodus/home There is only one store that is arguably better in regards to DRM and that's GOG[1]. This is also why so few AAA titles are available there. Go figure. 3) You don't own EGS-Games, you are merely granted a license. Like you said, basically "renting": https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/eu
  3. I'm not going to buy this for EGS. I hope they won't release this game for full prize on Steam, one year after.
  4. On the contrary, it seems the extra time was needed. Besides, I didn't see a really bad bug yet.
  5. I don't get why Avellone is posting his accusations in an alt right forum and his language is beyond undignified. I have a feeling that much of what he says is true, but if someone working for me would write things like this I would be very hesitant to continue working with him. For every serious accusation Avellone seems to post three stories that are merely intended to embarrass the people involved. But most of all he is embarrassing himself.
  6. Depends on how you characterize evil. That's the whole point of the companions; pretty much all of them are doing--or have done--only things that *they* felt were good, necessary, and required to be moral at that moment. And they all have good reasons for thinking and feeling that. Durance, the Devil, and Eder are the easiest examples. All of them did super wrong things--building a weapon of mass destruction that needed human sacrifice to work, serial murder, and traitorous sedition and helping a foreign enemy to invade their homeland. @Eder: What an American thing to say. Seriously. Al
  7. @AndreaColombo: You are right that text doesn't need to be scaled up, but we don't know how Obsidian implemented this. It might be very hard to change the game in such a way that fonts are always rendered in the native resolution. I'm surprised they didn't implement this in a more sensible fashion, but here we are. It's 2015 and Pillars of Eternity is not ready for resolutions beyond 1920x1200.
  8. 1.05 merely *upgrades* saves, so you can't go back easily (the game keeps a backup, though).
  9. Why is everyone using Facebook's player now?! I can't see the video without enabling flash. What year is it? 2006?!
  10. The quest log claims that I earned -492 XP for completing the quest (Total XP for the quest: 9000).
  11. First of all, I'm very glad that you included this fix. I don't have to reduce the desktop resolution anymore. I noticed two small visual glitches, though: 1) The main menu still does upscale, as indicated by the blurry font. 2) The loading screen border is now discontinous.
  12. From the patch notes: "HUD does not upscale until 1920x1200" - I have been looking forward for a fix like this. Finally, I can play the game without lowering the desktop resolution (lowering the resolution ingame lead to a whole bunch of problems with the UI). Apart from that, the game is perfectly playable for me.
  13. 1) It is the same in the old IE Games, therefore PoE is "true to its roots". 2) Contrary to what some people believe, $4+ million is not that much money for a game in 2015. They had to cut corners somewhere and voice acting is actually pretty expensive.
  14. Not necessarily. If the game is too easy for you on highest difficulty settings because you picked the wrong class then you will welcome a nerf.
