  1. Huh, I could have sworn forging crown gave additional slide, but I guess I misremember that (or confused the crown's flavor text for slide text in my mind somehow?)
  2. Never really heard about "Pillars of Eternity" being planned as trilogy though, kinda saw it as "they will do as many games as they feel like in different parts of the world" dealio But anyway, I don't think they should shut out CRPG genre as option completely considering Pathfinder CRPGs still seem to be doing fine and Baldur's Gate 3 I suppose as well. Wasteland 3 doesn't seem to be doing badly either, but I don't know much about that one sales success wise. They just need to figure out what their games did right and wrong and what competitors are doing right and wrong as well.
  3. I noticed it has been finally updated to contain slides for all dlc, but I don't think it contains any slides related to the crown or free patch stuff? Though I guess it could be that your "Woedica Codec" conversations can't actually affect the ending much besides there being slide for crown iirc?
  4. I still need to complete my turn based run :'3 I like game much better on turn based mode, but since I already completed it once before, I have had hard time focusing on this one when so many games to play
  5. I'd guess at very least the "ondra's mortar was turned back on" ending isn't going to be used for canon if they do pick one, mostly because that means "welp status quo remains and nobody has idea what is in the east"
  6. Pathfinder Kingmaker also did well despite bugs and complaints and all. I think another reason for it might actually have been competition. Divinity 2 and Pillars of Eternity 2 were released around same time and later in POE2's life cycle the dlcs were competing with Kingmaker instead. BTW, just to ask, is it just me, or do CRPGs have unusual amount of fans of genre who love arguing about how their favourite game is best in genre? Like you don't see lot of point and click or horror fans be like "You shouldn't play that game, this one is much better!" meanwhile you can't go to divi
  7. So I'm sure some people have seen that PC Gamer article about this and felt like giving their own input So here you go, an own thread for it. My own two cents is that I think most of comments in PC Gamer article miss the point: Them not liking the game doesn't really explain why it didn't sell well since they obviously DID buy the game or else their comments about not liking game for being too verbose doesn't make sense. Both of games do also have good reputation by critic scores and such so its unlikely to be bad reputation spreading. I'd like to think its because turn based games are b
  8. Skyrim like Pillars game wouldn't be a Pillars game though, it'd be Elder Scroll game <_<
  9. Sooo yeah, I've been avoiding making Aloth and Xoti hate Tekehu for nothing (though I suppose there wouldn't be a scene even if I hadn't avoided it) It kinda feels sometimes that relationship mechanics were bit incomplete ._. Well I hope for next game they improve upon it
  10. I'd be annoyed if they move from Infinity Engine style isometric game to regular top down game <_<; I mean that was part of the whole selling point of Pillar games
  11. So I know there are Eder-Aloth, Xoti-Eder, Xoti-Maia Tekehu-Pallegina, Tekehu-Maia and Xoti-Maia conversations that happen if they like/dislike each other, but does it actually matter at all for rest of party members what their dispositions are towards each other? Kinda wondering if I've been overly careful at avoiding certain party compositions or if I would actually get more content out if I bring bot Xoti and Tekehu on Nekeha where Tekehu has the most irresponsible tags at same time
  12. I love TB while I only tolerate Real time with pause, so I'm actually liking the combat on my second playthrough with my imported Watcher(I played first time back at release with preset history watcher because I wanted to wait until all patches and dlcs and magran's trials were done before doing my first watcher playthrough with berath's boons and such)
  13. So uh, you can get Five Suns Breastplate if you strengthened Dyrwood's souls and had Pallegina not got through the deal, but the breastplate itself refers to ending where you did that AND had Pallegina do the deal It kinda reminds me of how the kind wayfarer ending was cut completely and rolled into the exile ending ._.; I'm kinda wondering why Pallegina seems to be only character returning that has this happening to her, I guess maybe because her endings had lot of variants compared to Aloth and Eder?
  14. Kinda amazed that nobody still seems to have down a breakdown of exact mechanics behind this ._.;
