  1. I don't understand honestly. There's already 4 different casting classes with different mechanics and you want them to spend more time and money to shoehorn in a 5th that plays essentially just like one of the ones we already have..only...not with a book? This is just how the lore of this world has been written and how the classes within it operate.
  2. ... It rolled high on its Stealth check? *shrug* Please never stop being a Punsmith. You add so much color to these forums.
  3. Very much so. A lot of the credit can of course go to things like Steam. But also the simple fact that certain genres just can't work on anything other than a PC. A calculator can handle a platformer, but cRPGs are a good example.. I wouldn't envy console users at all if they got ports of them. Have fun playing something that complex with a controller.
  4. Or it's just a product that publishers weren't willing to invest in and we all know that publishers rarely get it right. Unfortunately, they do actually. If you've got 12 minutes this video explains it a lot better in more depth. But, long story short. Games like Battlefield and games with 5th and 6th installments are what sells the best. When risks are taken, they rarely pay off for the people putting money into them, and even when they do only marginally compared to these "blockbuster games". Only to become a cult classic 20 years later. Even classic franchises like Mari
  5. I couldn't agree more. 'Pillars of Eternity' is our chance to show the RPG gaming industry they are headed the wrong way, or at least that more games addressed to mature audiences are released. There should be more titles like Baldur's Gate I&II, Fallout I&II, Planescape: Torment and I really hope 'Pillars of Eternity' imminent huge success is going to send a loud message to producers. As much as I, and probably every single person here wants that. I honestly highly doubt it will go far past a mild success or carving its own niche. A large part of the gaming audience is st

  7. I'm glad of that. Really. And, to be clear, it is not at all my intention to berate you. I just hate to see people dread something that they think is all but hopeless, for a pretty good duration, only to ultimately be surprised by quality and enjoyment that they didn't even really think was a possibility at all. It may be weird of me, but I try to present those potentialities and provide some amount of encouragement to hold them in consideration (where you might not have, before, for very valid, human reasons), just so that you don't spend the time period between now and getting your hands
  8. You do make some good points, and you're right it's not really fair of me to blame the entire system because of the way a single genre typically uses it. It's just a twitch reaction I suppose, after pouring what has probably been thousands of hours into an endless number of JRPGs over my life it's the first thing to pop into my mind when you say "Turn based". I'm also still just a little bitter over that being one less new RTwP game that I get to play, it's my own fault of course but I just kind of assumed that's what it would be. I'm still interested in the game, maybe just not limited edit
  9. I enjoyed Isle of Bxnes on my tablet, so I know they are capable of making a game that is at least decent. I only wish there was more in the way of physical rewards. The book is cool and all, but I'd like a physical copy of the game itself. I will admit that their explanation of the hows and whys made me less sad that I thew so much money at them, but I'm still skeptical. It's not so much that I hate turn based combat as it is that I'm simply sick of it, before I got a bit older and learned about the other forms of rpgs I played jrpgs to death, and back to life, and then de
  10. Shut up.. You're making me sad. :/ I backed it, and when they later decided to release a poll for RTwP or TB and TB won.. well, yeah.. I mean. I'm still going to play it, I feel like I have to play a game I backed for $125. I just don't really expect to like it as much now. I will admit that like many others, I was pretty much suckered in with the "Torment" name.
  11. Fogs been confirmed, but I'm not sure about wind. That would definitely be cool even if it is minor.
  12. There will be both in the game. You can see weather in the official trailer actually. and they showed a day and night cycle at some other point. Edit : Trailer -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKoDTzea79Y Water/Trees/Day & Night -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUleDEFkUtE
  13. My internet hippie remark was just a joke really. It wouldn't be a wrong label, but I don't go around touting that I'm an internet hippie.. in part because it'd probably sound really ridiculous. But yes, the general defense for DRM by most people as is simple as you put it. "What I'm doing might technically be illegal, but you probably wont get caught.. so who cares?" or in some cases, basically a badge of honor. I can't argue with the first one on a theoretical level.. because it is pretty much true.. you probably wont. However, I personally like to not break laws if possible even if I do
  14. I personally just think people grumble about Steam DRM due to inertia. There's a lot of us though who won't buy a game that has DRM period though. Which is why I end up not owning many modern PC games that aren't indie. If I can't feel like I genuinely own what I purchase I don't want it, and I can't feel that way with DRM. If they sell the game through Steam with DRM, I don't care.. but if that was the only way to get it? I'd request my money back. I used to think we could own software too and was concerned about DRM, and then I went to law school... Seriously thoug
  15. I didn't mean to make it sound like I'm the only one, I just know that..especially from the Pillars of Eternity side of things there's a pretty even split of younger people (Teens-20s) and slightly older to middle aged people.
