  1. I don't see that many people claiming the BG games had such awesome writing. I think the OE drone squad just likes to bring it up a lot because it helps to distract from everything else BG2 clearly beats PoE at. I'm sure you've heard this before, but it's unfair to compare PoE to BG2. Better to compare it to BG1. Why is it unfair ? BG1 was made by a heap of noobs who had never before made a game. Why should that be the comparison point ? Even compared to BG1 it falls down anyway.

  3. @ yellow rabbit tbh I never expected it to surpass. With better encounters and a better difficulty curve from start to finish I would have given it a pass for everything else even though I would have still had some pretty major reservations. I don't think I am asking for too much when I ask for a game with semi interesting combat. Even the people here defending PoE tend to scew towards saying that aspect of the game is a bit off. Surely asking for combat which requires me to be at the keyboard isn't an overly high expectation.When they cannot deliver that then I do get pretty sour towards the
  4. @yellow rabbit. 1. Main character - are you really checking off having a playable character as some kind of achievement ? 2. Memorable companions - its subjective and I have read a lot of peoples opinions. Have heard few people claim the companions are better and many claim they are worse. Personally I am fine with the companions. They arent what make a game though. 3. Combat being fail deserves more than one bullet point since there is more than one aspect of it which is broken. 4. I didn't set the plank at PS:T they did. You agree they didn't really nail it. Personally I think the writi
  5. Always refreshing to see people write elaborated and well reasoned statements that really contribute to the discussion and enlighten everyone involved by giving clever insights Pot calling the kettle black much. I could write an essay or I could just say the game didn't do what it promised and that has left me sour. If for some reason you actually do want some essay length arguements followed by massive threads of discussion I could link you that kind of thing. Or you could just google it yourself. Well just in case you aren't a troll here is one of the better (and much better writte

  7. Game is not a successor to the IE games. The entire premise of the kickstarter campaign was false. Maybe the game is fine for people who don't want that. It was sold as something it isn't though. Pretty disappointing for anyone who actually did want a modern day BG2. Its over 2 weeks since launch and I am still whining on forums instead of playing the game. This is literally the last product I will ever buy from a big name developer. /sigh. Going to go play FTL now. Its more of an IE successor. At least it has meaningful RTwP combat, even if it is spaceships fighting each other and a roguelik
  8. The camera angle being too low when you are outside and the lack of 'see through mode' for walls and trees. These two things add considerably to the difficulty of seeing what is going on in combat.
  9. @PrimeJunta Eh. I'm not trying to be mature. I am throwing a hissy fit because of how upset I am about the game after waiting so long for it. I am literally emotionally distressed about the state of the game. Not trying to hide it. Plenty of people not throwing hissy fits out there too. Not sure anyone putting feedback in here will help but meh. @Trauma_Hound Not min maxing. Not even slightly. Have the companions the game gives you in the look I think looks nice on them. Sagani is using a hunting bow. Not the improved one I made her but the one with a name I found laying around. I have used
  10. Eh I think the game is fixable. If they just tune/tweak the xp and ai. If they do that the game goes from unplayable back to the 9/10 I thought it was before the xp bloat killed it. I'll stop going on and on about it when I get some kind of official answer as to whether or not the ridiculous xp gain is intended and will be kept (at which point I might make a thread saying I wish the game was never made and I feel robbed or I might just walk away) or they are going to do something to fix the games issues (at which point I will celebrate and stop playing forums and learn some patience and wait f
  11. I spoke to the people who made the IE mod and they said it was at least easier to mod than dragon age. They also said they haven't bothered finishing the game and don't care about it to make mods for it anymore though.
  12. It was a lot less true in bg2. A lot less. If I have gotten so much better at this kind of game that I remember BG2 actually requiring me to try then why have I become so much less capable at chess? I'm pretty certain that I was better at strategy/tactics when I was around 18 than I am now. You are wrong about the damn auto attack not working too. Its just not bloody true. I feel like I am going to have to work out how to record game footage and risk destroying my computer to make a 30 minute video of me wipinig the floor using itamuuk as a tank and having a party full of people wielding hunt
  13. I agree about the lack of imunities being a problem. It feels more like an attempt to cater to the casual market than a missed opportunity though. The more I play and think about this game the more it seems like it was trying to 'cater to a wider audience' than the IE games it pretends to hark back to. Not like those games had bad sales figures though.
  14. I'd be happy if I they somehow fix the game so that I can force myself to play through it once.
  15. The more I think about it the more I am starting to lean away from the very idea of stats.
