  1. I would like to see how Poe combat is more or less good with a simple comparison. I've read lots of critics about poe combat from RPG purists but perhaps I like it. I hope someone can answer this simple questions.
  2. I'd like to ask you how great is combat in PoE. In comparison with other RPG games that I've played: 1 Is PoE combat better than Dragon Age Origins combat? 2 Is PoE combat better than NWN2 combat? 3 Is PoE combat better than BG1/2 combat? I'll be happy if one of those questions is affirmative. Thanks in advance.
  3. To play or not to play it, that's the question. I'll wait until people say "this game is playable until the end and there aren't serious bugs". The day of the release, I'll open the next thread: "Is the game playable or is better to wait?" Betatesters and Obsidian are doing a great task improving the game and delaying its release, so I'm cofident we will have a solid game in the release.
  4. At this moment, they could make an update talking about novella, almanac, etc. They could release all the other things now before the game release.
  5. I've been reading on the gamepedia the "ingame" books of the history of Aedyr Empire, The Dyrwood, and the chronology and l lile a lot the setting. I hope PoE success and we can play more games in the future in this setting. I reccommend the gamepedia books for those who are waiting eagerly the PoE release.
  6. I'm glad to see PoE delayed. It's better to play a high quality game, no matter if we must wait half year more. If PoE succeeds, our experience playing it wil be great, the critics will be good, more people will buy this game, and more sales mean more expansions, sequels, more hours of gameplay in this incredible setting.
  7. Nice name. My first name is Juan and my second surname is Sánchez, jeje.
  8. My hero's name will be "Finn", in honour to the bravest hero of all cartoons, Adventure Time protagonist. I must find a proper surname for him....
  9. I asked the same in the forum long time ago and I haven't received any answer. Is not so difficult to answer a question like that. It would be appreciated to know an estimated release date of novella, almanac etc.
  10. A hard problem to solve that can ruin the combat experience. I don't want to see enemies triying to reach my wizard, passing through my warrior tanks and suffering a lot of free damage.
  11. I've seen in combats of some games, that enemies don't take into account penalties for disengagement, trying to reach one combatant and suffering lots of damage from other people close to the stupid enemy, who results dead even before reaching the goal. I've seen this, for example in Expeditions conquistador: enemies tried to reach my doctor (weaker than the rest of my group, being in the rear of my party) suffering a big deal damage from my warriors. I've seen this recently in Age of Wonders 3 too. This stupid behaviour ruins the realism of combat. Watching that in Pillars of Eternit
  12. It's entirely a matter of how much you advance at each level. Yes, if you're used to a game like WoW, 12 is pretty low. But this isn't WoW. The early gold box game Pool of Radiance had a level cap of 8. Baldur's Gate had a level cap of 7; then 9 with the Sword Coast expansion. 12 seems pretty decent by comparison, plus we'll be getting the expansion later on. I prefer low level caps for a first game. In my opinion, slow levelling pace is better, because you can taste better any time one member gains a level. I remember Baldur's Gate: I loved the moments when I saw a yellow cross in my cha
  13. I hope in PoE combat we can cause or suffer damage in reduced numbers. From 0 to 30 HP/stamina. I don't like combats where you can inflict 1850 points of damage, like in Southpark game.
  14. Yeah, I would like in the expansion to revisit some previous areas of the main game, mainly cities and villages. I think Defiance Bay has a good potential for the expansion, for new quests. I hope devs take this into account. To reuse old areas is an easy way to increase hours of gameplay to the expansion. New areas+reused old areas= Perfect expansion I hope that expansion has enough hours of gameplay. I remember Heart of Winter was too short.
  15. And what about famous Japanese RPG's combat? I see this famous tipe combat terribly boring in comparison with Infinity Engine combat. I've been playing Southpark the stick of truth and is a game with a good history but I see combat boring after some fights. I remember when I played IE games, where you could cast a fireball with your wizard, heal a wounded warrior with your cleric, use artillery with your rangers, backstab an enemy with your thief and fight face to face with your fighters. ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!! I'll try ShadowRun. If you know any RPG with better combat than IE
  16. I love Infinity Engine combat and its way of pausing the game whenever I want to give orders to SIX party members. I haven't seen a better way to playing a combat in an RPG. Combat in fallout, mass effect, neverwinter nights, actionRPG's, etc.. is in my opinion much worse than Infinity Engine combat.
  17. It would be interesting to know what obsidian have planned about novel, almanac and other things. I would like to read the almanac before playing the game. I hope they release it before the release of game. I ask the same questions about novella: 1- It will be released in several languages or only in english? 2- It will be released before, during or after the release of the game?
  18. Hello guys. I like everything I see in Pillars of eternity: The setting, creatures, classes, images... But, What about combat? This is the only feature I'm worried. If combat mechanics are succesfull, this game will be great. Have developers thought in showing us how combat works in next updates? It would be nice that developers could show us a video of a party of heroes fighting against some enemies, pausing game and giving orders to heroes using the interface. What do you think?
  19. I'm satisfied with the decision developers have taken. I prefer not to expand this game and play it at good quality soon, and continue to play more hours in next expansions (not only one) in the future. I prefer to play smaller games with several expansions, rather than one only big size game like BG2.
  20. I'm very confident on kickstarter. I don't play too much like ten years ago, but in 2013 almost all games I've played are kickstarter games: - Expeditions Conquistador: A masterpiece in my opinion. - Banner Saga Factions (the multiplayer combat game): I enjoyed a lot to play combats against people on the net. I haven't played yet the singleplayer history. - Faeria: Nice card game (like Magic) to play on the net. - FTL: The reference of rogue-like games For the future (I backed all those and more): - Pillars of Eternity is the Queen - Tides of Numenera. If i had knew that it was tu
  21. Perhaps another member of the team can answer those questions. While we are waiting for the game release, it would be nice to read previously the almanac, the novel, etc...
  22. Hello. I'd like to ask some questions about the novella: 1- It will be released in several languages or only in english? 2- It will be released before, during or after the release of the game? It would be nice to read it before the release of the game, in order to get familiarized with the setting. thanks in advance.
