If Pillars of Eternity had romances


Recommended Posts

I've always found romances in video games to be cheesy.  

 

Press 'A' to kisth

 

 

Where you go wrong is in assuming that cheesy = bad.  And how is pressing 'A' for smooches any sillier than pressing 'A' to defeat the bad guys?  They both bear about as much similarity to their real-life counterparts.  And yet people enjoy both of them.

 

I would have liked to romance Eder on my female human rogue.

 

I'm a little surprised at the people saying Durance.  Doesn't the game kind of allude to the fact that he has an STD that has caused impotence and his face is covered with pox sores?

@luzarius straight male gamer's didn't come first in skyrim every body that was a marriage option was bisexual.

 

Not to mention you not liking how a female looks has nothing to do with gay's or feminist's.  

 

And they all had exactly the same personality and lines, which was a great saving on the writing . . .

 

Skyrim's "romances" were . . . weird.

And so what? Everybody has their shortcomings.

They weren't romances, they were marriages. It wasn't "weird" as much as it was shallow; which was on purpose. Getting a spouse was just supposed to be a neat little doodad; like getting a house or furniture.

"Good thing I don't heal my characters or they'd be really hurt." Is not something I should ever be thinking.

Inquisition catered highly to feminists & gay men, then as a side effect, the women somehow all became ugly.

The scary part here, boys and girls, is that this dude is deathly serious when he says stuff like this.

 

 

yes, dead serious. I even provided comparisons so you could logically assess my assessment. Don't forget that feminists infecting gaming is on the rise as well.

 

I've been over this with you before. You like women who are scarcely dressed and sexually aggressive. They don't exist in DA:I and that's why you hate them.

 

You like women like Isabella, who talk about sex whenever they can and will screw anything that points at them.

 

And that's really great, but those women only exist in video games and pornography (and in clubs after midnight :p)

 

 

People are getting it all wrong.

 

I made an image to show people why i'm so pissed off:

I'm not lying when I say Cassandra Pentaghast was purposely modeled as a man, WHICH PISSES ME OFF!!!

Bioware thought we wouldn't noticed, but I noticed as soon as I saw her god damn face, err his god damn face, whatever.  Gay agenda at it's finest.   Feminists ensured that the rest of the women were ugly as hell.

 

What really gets me upset is all the straight guys that ended up romancing her, oh man, talk about disrespecting my bros! I think the concept is called a trap.

Who's taking you for a fool? Gaming companies should just do what they want. If the females of the games don't appeal to you; play something else.

In other words, you want me to just pretend Inquisition never happend, be totally passive, don't give any information to Obsidian, then regret not saying anything when Pillars of Eternity II has naked dancing gay men everywhere, extremely ugly females and shemales walking about trying to trick you into sleeping with them.  LOL. Passive straight men is why TV is plagued with gay scenes everywhere.

 

Stumbles in thread. See's Luzarius' avatar. You know, I thought that was a guy. Never knew it was a character from Dragon Age as I've never played DA2 or DA:I and only played about 10 mins of DA:O. Why do you use the avatar if you don't like how the character turned out in the game?

 

HAHHA thank you for that, I don't know how many times people will tell me that she looks like a man. I get a lot of funny comments in PM. That made my day thank you!  I wish Bioware could see what you just typed haha.

(If anyone responds to my posts, just know I don't want to post too much in this thread out of respect for OP's original post).

Its rare when you come across someone like luzarius who appears to be completely unconcerned as coming across as an uninformed bigot 

 

But I suppose they do say " ignorance is bliss " so he must be happy ?

It's fine to have/state preferences, but no need for the indignation. 

 

Just don't go, "This pisses me off! Stupid feminist agenda!" If there is content you want to see (or don't want to see), go ahead and let Obsidian know, but keep the political bullsh*t out of it. SJW's are bad enough. You seem to be the same annoying thing; just the opposite spectrum.

Well, you could have taken the same road as me and not have bought it, if Bioware's "gay agenda" pisses you off that much. I didn't buy it for different reasons, since I couldn't care less about straight or gay. But I'm also not the one comparing and analysing pixel skulls to nail them for being too gay friendly and for their feminists makig women too ugly for you to drool over.

I'm a gay woman and I didn't buy Inquisition because the series is dead to me after DA2. I can't say I feel very catered to as a gamer... I think DAI brought more enjoyment to straight male luzarius than it would to me, I mean look at him, he still entertains himself discussing it on internet forums when everyone else lost interest months ago. :p

If Pillars had romances in with the same characters that are available then I think it would have been creepy. 

 

 

 

The least creepy option for straight males and gay females would be Pallegina, and she is portrayed as not really having a gender or at least believes she doesn't due to her culture.  The other two options are a married dwarf who wants to see her family again and so wouldn't make sense for her and a mentally unstable woman who I'm not sure has the capability to give consent and so would not be right.  Straight women and gay blokes have a better option in that they get Eder, but then who can say no to Eder?  He's a dude!  Duuuuuuude!  There's Aloth too, though you may get confused as to which of him you are with.  Kana too.  Durance, no, and I don't have to explain why.  Hirav would be like pedophilia.

 

 

 

But the most important thing I have to say is, NO TO ROMANCES!!!!  I would not want to see the female characters changed so that I could bone them, because they would need to be and it would ruin them.  **** off back to Bioware!

The internet is werid today. 
There's this thread where people complain about backers getting backer achievements on steam, and there's this other thread where this guy tries to prove that Bioware are working on some hidden Illuminati agenda to turn straight men into gay men by allowing them to romance a female character, who arguably looks like a man.

For women, I guess Eder makes a lot of sense. He's a hearty down-to-earth guy... I mean, come on, look at his portrait! With his looks, he'd be a god-damn womanizer in real life!

 

From all the female characters, I initially thought that Sagani was the most attractive one. But given her backstory, it just wouldn't fit.

 

Hiravias... would be an option for women that are into furries, I guess? ;)

No objection, he's pretty sexist so it makes a lot of sense for him to be a romance option. You gotta have at least one bad-boy for women, right? :>

 

Pallegina... somehow I didn't find her attractive, despite the looks. Also, I don't think a possible romance with her would be very interesting. She doesn't have enough background to support it. Hiravias isn't as interesting either, but he at least provides possible character developement. Pallegina is too static.

 

 

Also, why is everyone so quick dismissing GM as a potential romance option? Not only does she have one of the most unique backgrounds with lots of stuff to explore, but she is also pretty and has the proper motherly instincts to boot.

I wouldn't say it's extremely out-of-character for her... after all, you are pretty much the first person in her life that she actually connects to. it's just that any activity or argument would probably be very ... mental. Gives a whole new meaning to the term mind-****...

 

I really hope GM will be an available companion in the sequel. She's my favorite character of the PoE roster.

I'm not really into RPG romances, but I fell in love the first time I saw her.  <3

 

Anyway, the game does have romance.  Eder is one of the best bromances in RPGs.  :D

 

 

That's a fantastic artwork ... so damn close to the original art-style that it's almost disturbing that this isn't official!
