It's gonna be awesome!!! :yes:

 

I have no other basis for this, other than the backer beta, and all the updates and tidbits of info, but Deadfire will for sure be better than PoE1, D:OS1 & D:OS2, plus Tyranny, combined!

 

And that talking sword, it's the mouthy icing on the cake.

What's the appeal of the talking sword? I take great comfort in the fact that none of my tools\toys talk back.

Quick superman? Or are we not talking about Clark Kent?

Either way, relevance is what?

This sword says sexy things back.

Ugh. Before or after its created gore spattered holes in people?
Very creepy.

Isn't that the name of Kevin James' love interest in Hitch?

 

I guess that was Allegra Cole and not Allegra Clark. Who knew you could find these things on the internet?

Boy, was the topic title a rollercoaster of emotions. :p

 

I'm looking forward to it! I'm positive I will enjoy it regardless of classic Obsidian flaws (mostly bugs). In fact, the only reservation I have right now is that David Warner ended up not being in the game, but eh. That's just minor nostalgia talking.

 

EDIT: Just noticed the tags. Lol.

Well, to be fair, Lilarcor could sometimes be creepy too.

 

Like, screaming YEAH!!! HIT IT AGAIN!!! right after the sex scene with Jaheira.

 

I'm mostly sure these are unrelated events, though.

 

I hope.

Sword confirmed to have lines about all different types of fluids. On a more serious note regarding this topic I really appreciate things like this because it tells me not everything in the game is going to nasty and upsetting. No doubt we'll have folks complain about the sword but it's not a requirement soooo....

 

I expect to be satisfied though. I love Obsidian's work and am looking forward to seeing what they've made with Deadfire. People always talk about hype before games like devs are going to deliver Superman 64 again.

Allegra Clark is the sword’s voice actress (relevance) and she’s very good (appeal, which may vary depending on your taste.)

My statement was also a tongue-in-cheek reference to her looks, as Allegra Clark is fairly attractive.

i don‘t expect that much for me, i‘d be happy if it‘s a 7/10 score for me. If they‘d tie empower to per-rest with per-encounter gone as well as get away from engagement completely with only abilities like knockdown or something like shieldbash in and thus enemy ai improved, then i‘m pretty sure the game would be more fun for me. So, i‘m hoping this time the story and exploration will motivate me to play to the end of the game.

I'm glad they haven't spoiled much (or anything) regarding the story, the companions and relationships. It should guarantee a fresh feel when the game starts and that will be a big plus. Looking good so far.

Based on the title I would have put any bet that this thread was opened by SonicMage117. :lol:

Upon release, I'm expecting the RPGCodex will melt down into a steaming pile of radioactive bilge. But the game should be good.

So, you're saying it will be the same as any other day of the year?

What's the deal with RPG Codex? I've seen the name tossed around here before, they don't seem to be particularly popular. Why is that?

The Codex is a bit like 4chan meets RPG nerds. They have a culture unto themselves. Some people hate it, and some like it. They are very "no holds barred" with their opinion, and it was pretty mixed there on PoE. They seem to have a bit of a love hate relationship with Obsidian. It's a specific culture they have and you love it or hate it, it seems.

We have a few Codexians that post here, and I think many RPG news posts there are solid. Infinitron (a Codex Mod) posts a lot of relevant news here. Always worth reading an Infinitron post imho. The issue is whether you read the comments over there and can take the strong opinions.

I have to say I watched that update and the talking sword bit really irritated me. Some annoying american accent... bloody hell!
