I've followed this game casually, but it's one of the few games that I'm genuinely excited about. If launch reviews go well, I will not only buy it...but actually play it immediately rather than wait a year for patch/expansion/enhancement. This game is basically what "grognards" have been asking for for close to 15 years. Let's hope that they deliver.

Only if you're prepared to ruin your own game against your will. :yes:

I was hoping they would release it in August, as they said they would, because that will be exactly when I'm looking for a new RPG (to tide me over until the Deadfire DLC is released). Well, better a late game than an unfinished one. I'm still excited, though, so now I just need to find a game that will keep me engaged for two months but not for longer that that.

 

I think this will be the first time I play a computer RPG based on a system that I've used on the tabletop. I'm curious to see if this will affect the way I play.

Already available for preorder on GOG.

For me, it will be wait and see. I love PnP version, but I am not yet convinced about the studio with no record to track.

Anyone is going to pre-order?

 

The game looks promising and I like PoE (party-RPG) and Shadowrun (party-RPG, turn-based combat), but I bounced hard off Divinity: Original Sin I&II (because of its controls, balance and it being MP-focused). Should I get Pathfinder: Kingmaker?

 

Edit. Pre-purchased the Noble Edition on Steam.

Yes. i haven't play it yet, but it's more like BG2 story done in 3.5 expanded ruleset.

I am thinking of pre-purchasing this baby on Steam. It has Chris Avellone and...that's all I really need to know. :grin:

Anyone is going to pre-order?


Probably, I don't know much about the development of the game but it seems as if Avellone has had more freedom with this game than anything he has worked on in the past few years. It costs 40 bucks so I might buy it since I didn't get to play PoE II.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker looks like it will be enjoyable so I'm planning to pre-order it on Steam sometime in September. More then likely

 

I'll be getting the Noble Edition, since it comes with a complete soundtrack of Kingmaker's in-game music and I always been a sucker

 

for video game soundtracks. (Just not happy with having a time limit for each chapter but I'll get over it.)

Watching some beta playthroughs, i'm still undecided if I will wait for sale or buy on release. I guess I would really need to see how the kingdom management games come into play, usually those are a turn off for me. Good to see that more RPGs are using Tyranny's highlight descriptions.

I finally found it what bothers me about some of the voices, is the exact same voice as in Warlock 2.

Same

 

I'm a cheapskate though so backing gets me a cheaper game and has the nice side effect of adding a couple rubles to the dev budget

That, and I looked up some of the people working on this. Silent Storm and Rage of Mages aren't awful games.

I backed it on Kickstarter, because I wanted to be sure it got made (perhaps even with extra features), but if you haven't already done that I don't see any reason to pre-order. It's hard to tell how good a game will be until it's actually released, and the only benefit would be a few pointless items, which I wouldn't say justifies the increased risk of an unnecessary expenditure.
