hernedpea Posted March 27, 2016 Share Posted March 27, 2016 I didn't know where I should place this thread so I will try in here... So apparently Pillars of Eternity 2 (pre-?)production has started. That's good. But besides things you probably already know to improve/change that many players had already stated, I have one humble request. About music direction. I really wish it be more like in old IE-games style. Strong, memorable tunes. I believe Justin Bell is really good artist and composer (his PoE battle themes proved that, I'm loving them), but rest of the music was kinda like "bland-music-made-for-being-a-background-for-the-movie" thing. And that would be okay if the game was like that all movie-esque titles we had tons on the market, with lots of voice acting and action. But PoE wasn't anything like that, and that kind of music was totally boring and forgettable. Several times when I transitioned from one area to another I caught myself that I didn't even noticed that it's playing the same music I heard just a while ago in previous area. Yeah, it's that forgettable. Music was a strong element of old Infinity Engine games. Even today, when I hear some of those games tracks I have a great memories connected with a game events I was participating. In PoE I don't have that feeling (except battle themes...). In old Infinity Engine games music participated in shaping atmosphere of these games, and considering of thier type (not like movies at all) that was a great advantage. I would love that PoE2 would go that route. I hope that you, Obsidians, will give us even better game than before. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
