Torment: Tides of Numenera

Recommended Posts

 

The official Torment 2 boards?  I know Wasteland ones were a bit too scary for me.

 

Me too. A nice look, but a tad uninviting plus a wonky interface. I could never tell if my postings were successful there. :huh:

 

I really don't like that board. I found that there are a handful of regular users who constantly posted novel-length replies to each other that were (in my opinion) rather devoid of content and it would push everybody elses replies off the page and suffocate any real discussion. I ended up making a lot of posts in the 'we want your mission ideas' thread and mostly just ignored the rest. For what it's worth, I liked your posts over there ;)

Oh gee, never saw that behaviour before. Especially not on these boards!

Yeah it happens here.  It just seemed to be more prevalent when I was posting.

 

It also helps that in posting here, I don't really post about Project Eternity.  I remember seeing a lot of what it meant to be an Infinity Engine game as well.  I don't really go over to the PE forums here anymore in large part because of that.

The Internet: A place where everything is literally binary and the only shade of grey is the one seen by angry nerds when imagining what their ideal Diablo screen-shots look like.

Killing is kind of like playin' a basketball game. I am there. and the other player is there. and it's just the two of us. and I put the other player's body in my van. and I am the winner. - Nice Pete.

Indeed. We live just fine in this part of the forum.

The people in the PE forums probably think we are bizarre for coming to Obsidian and rarely discussing anything to do with the company :p

I used to be one of those types of people, but only during IWD2's development. :sorcerer:

The PE boards terrify me. I am hyped for the game but any opinion posted there just gets flamed for not being enough yet simultaneously too much like either Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale.

Yeah its the Bioware travelling circus all over again.


И погибе Српски кнез Лазаре,
И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

Funny, I didn't get these negative impressions aside from the occasional arrogant dimwit. Though I don't bother keeping up with the 20,000,000 page threads.

I visit there fairly often (less now compared to when it was announced). I mostly check out the threads to see if any of the devs have anything to say.

I think those forums are hung up on technical questions which I have little desire to discuss. 

 

The stuff I'm interested in, like story and characters, and visual design is still pretty much an unknown.

I enjoy the main PE forums, there are some people who seriously spend loads of time discussing interesting points like Female Armour,  Romance\Sex and the Design a Monster  threads started by one of our regular members JFSOCC. But of course the word "interesting" is relative. I do find myself just naturally gravitating to this section of the Obsidian forums because I do it more insightful and topics more varied

have you been on the BSN?

 

it is quite possibly one of the most disgusting places on the internet...I feel less bad about being a part of the human race watching holocaust slideshows than I do whenever i venture into that sh*t hole.

Aside from being little busier, personally, I'm bit tired of "internet politics".  I don't mind any opinion from any part of board or community and I don't like to be involved with political issues when simply talking of game functions.  There must be better ways to use boards whether through voting system, search functions or any other ways to filter posts/topics.  The net is just mass of info and we cannot find any usefulness if the data is not sorted according to our needs.

:biggrin:  Come on BSN isn't that bad, but you did make me chuckle with your hyperbole

I don't think I'll ever venture near a Numenera forum. I had enough "A billion years? That is not possible! Monte knows nothing." from a real life aquaintance.

Hi Melk :)

 

I haven't been to the Numenera forums yet, they sound a little hectic for my personal taste :skeptical:

I haven't been there either. The prospect scares me, since I the reactions from "hardcore rpgers" I have seen was one that would get on my nerves.

Even though the kickstarter has ended, the paypal pledges are still running until the 30th of this month. At the moment there is just under $100,000 to go before hitting the final stretch goal.

I'm usually not one to judge, but that was rather distasteful.
