Pachfinder Bugmaker: The Rekkoning

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it's a bug or a feature, but (spoilers for the House at the Edge of Time)

Nok-Nok keeps dying, despite that I've completed his quest and it counted as the last. It might be because of how I resolved the battle with the barghest (the Diplomacy skill check), but he still should have survived. It (completion of their questlines) worked for all other companions, thus it is reasonable to assume that it should work in the same manner for Nok-Nok.

Completing the companion quest alone isn't enough, you need to solve it in the right way to keep the companion. I'm not sure what is really necessary for Nok-Nok to survive but I've made him the court jester and it was enough.

 

Did you talk to Nok-Nok after the barghest battle? Because that conversation decides his fate.

 

No mind to think. No will to break. No voice to cry suffering.

I did, but I don't remember what exactly I told him. Something like being a hero in his own way.

Heh, that post reminded me of something.

You people remind me how much I hate goblin humor. Ugly little runts that they are. Still, I feel sorry for Nok Nok. I guess if a participation prize makes him happy, I'll be happy for him. He still spends all his time back at the camp picking his nose. Except when I need to take him for his quests, of course.

I edited* Nok-Nok back and completed the last chapter with him. There was no epilogue for him, but he participated in the final battle and the secret ending was successfully achieved.

 

*added him as an available companion, instead of setting the correct quest flag. Not the best solution, but the least time-consuming.

As a side note, I think, there's strong dissonance between the plot and its presentation - the story by itself is rather grim, but the narrator (Linzi) paints rainbows and unicorns upon it. The main character builds their kingdom on the remains of their adversaries and predecessors and has to be absolutely determined to hold it, no matter how many corpses and resources required to do so. Thus the only character fitting this mindset I was able to RP was Kyros the Overlord. Though, Tyranny was somehow more self-aware.

Despite (or because of) it, PF:KM still was interesting to play.

I just noticed that for some reason even though it's not mentioned in the Kickstarter rewards my copy of Pathfinder: Kingmaker did in fact come with the DLC Season Pass.

 

Way to go Owlcat. I'll get back to the game once all the expansions/DLCs are released. It's too much of a time commitment to get back into it now.

No mind to think. No will to break. No voice to cry suffering.

I just beat the game again.

 

 

 

Some how ended up with Nyrissa and both twins. I wonder what I need to do to get better results on some of the end slides. Seems like I'm too good to the people and need to pick more money making options. Also not sure who makes the best barbarian leader either.

 

The only companion I couldn't save was Linzi since she can't be saved but I also was able to get Tartuccio/Tartuk back for the last part of the game which was an interesting turn.

Wait what?

 

 

 

Lizi dies at the end of the game, so you'll have to do the potential endgame without her. Good luck if you're like me and she's an integral part of the party. :p

Kind of figured that Kingmaker had a lot going against it with the RPGCodex crowd (RTwP instead of turn-based, romances out the wazoo, straightforward quest design, and a fairly by-the-numbers, though nonetheless well-written, main plot).

Apparently RPG codex voted Patchfinder their game of the year. They also had the Wildcards dlc that broke the game the runner up for dlc of the year.  :skeptical:

I can't take them seriously, they made Bard's Tale win "best remake" award. What the hell is Kenshi doing there :D

 

The Bard's Tale remake was actually really well done, even with making the 99 Barbarians fight a one time event. :)

The Bard's Tale remake is easily the best remake/remaster I've ever played and the best game in InXile's entire catalogue.

How's Bugmaker right now anyway?  I kind of want to play something new but where I won't have to learn the system from scratch, but howlongtobeat has this to say about it: Main Story: --, Main + Extras 140 hours, Completionist: -- .

 

:blink:

 

So before committing bloody 140 hours it would be nice to know the game would not break halfway there.

Best joke I've heard all week.

 

A ton of glitches, completely broken pathing, crashes that corrupt save files, terrible optimalization, combat that is basically rocket tag and very easy to exploit... do I need to go on?

 

The game is 6/10 on Steam atm and that's pretty generous for this piece of crap.
