  1. This is an old thread, but I'll opine anyway: Regarding why PoE 2 wasn't a big success- A) Pillars of Eternity is a good game BUT.... The early version of the game was a buggy, unbalanced mess. That's all in the past now, but for many people, that's their only impression of the game. B) For as much as it was sold as an IE successor, especially Baldur's Gate, it really didn't live up to what was promised. Per-encounter abilities, no kill xp, "disengagement mechanic" that weakens the RTS elements, fairly linear game progression (Most areas were locked off until after you ge
  2. I really don't get the strong opposition to wearing a mask. I'm not a medical expert by any means, but... Why does anyone care so much about having to wear a mask? It's an extremely small annoyance at the very worst, unless you have some extreme medical condition I guess. I GET the opposition to the lockdown, makes good practical sense to not want to trash the economy, but, why exactly is wearing a mask a big deal?
  3. The irony is that Baldur's Gate 3 will probably not come close to it's namesake's legacy. Pillars of Eternity came pretty darn close to matching BG's renown, and was only held back by poor mod support.
  4. I killed Verzano like Danna Doemenel asked me to. Then it just said Quest Failed. I'm on trial of iron and can't go back. Why did I fail?
  5. Osama Bin Laden liked anime, including Naruto. That is all.
  6. No doubt it will be done to thunderous applause. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2017/10/05/the-campus-anti-free-speech-movement-black-lives-matter-protesters-shut-down-aclu-speaker-at-william-mary/?utm_term=.92681c96e2bc I know we went from Confederate flag is racist to US anthem is racist in like 2 minutes, but now liberalism is racist? What's next? Non racist are racists? Non-racists are racists has been a thing. You're behind the curve. I'll cut you some slack since you don't live in the US.
  7. Sure is nifty that it starts after 9/11 but before the Orlando shooting.
  8. I hate that guy's voice. That said, his notion that the correct response to a bad idea is a better idea, is spot on.
  9. They really are. It's too bad those black socks are obstructing our view.
  10. I didn't think you of all people would be opposed to privatization and purging of unions. They also think Usury is bad. I love usury. They're unacceptable. EDIT: If people want high interest loans, that's fine by me. EDIT2: Regarding unions. Private sector unions are good. Public sector unions are bad.
  11. I know for a fact that isn't true, and if you doubt me I'll create a compilation of Christians whining about happy holidays.
  12. It honestly should. National Socialism is a very dangerous ideology.
  13. That is all well and good, but I think that if you parade around chanting Blut und Boden and toting a flag with a swastika, "Nazi" is a fairly adequate term to describe you. Yes, technically they aren't Nazis, because they don't have a card with their member # in the National Socialist German Workers' Party, so they are neo-Nazis at best, but that's not an exceedingly useful distinction to make outside of a historical discussion. The vast majority of them did not have nazi flags. They mostly had confederate flags. EDIT: Heck, there were people waving nazi flags at occupy wall stree
  14. "it's not a political thing" *Yes it is. As surely as burning the flag would be. It is an inherently political statement. "When you refuse to use the word Nazi, but you can call someone who pays their taxes, carries themselves the right way -- in order to play a professional sport, you have to have some sort of discipline --- who is a disciplined individual, you call them 'sons of bitches.' But you can't call a spade a spade." *Yeah, you can't just call people Nazi's at random (or rather, you shouldn't. People actually have been). And no, just because they're wh
