Fucking never and that's your proof.

Looks pretty good. Hopefully it won't take a year of patches and two DLCs for the game to be good this time.

Not when it was released though. That game was the most disappointing shit I've ever experienced.

It was only good when the DLC, and patches fixed all of sawyer's initial autism.

PoE was a bland, cliche RPG but the music and background art was pretty decent. There are some redeemable things about that game that don't make it a complete and utter turd.

Tyranny is a completely different matter entirely.

I don't know I like tyranny or not. I liked the combat, but the game was too short to really enjoy. The story was all over the place.

shit story
shit characters with rare exceptions
random bullshit stories about nothing because "people love to read, so they would love to read our dreams about past life of peasants doing peasant things!"
unity engine, 2d game that lags and loads for 30 second every fucking time, while they had infinity engine working flawlessly for 20 years
generic boring shit with generic boring pallette
taking advice from random twater sjw
Cant wait for the next game! I even expected something good from the 1st game, goddamn it.
Yeah, they went with "more words means better writing". Fucking degenerates.
Do you know that people use kickstarter to make money? Do you know that people want more money even if they already have enough money? Can you be more goim than this?

Tides of numera was a better game in every aspect, but its still was not great.

Carter Rivera

The major complaint I could make about the original is the over use of "and", using descriptive words to describe a scene or event is not a complaint anyone should be making.
The "fixed" version describes almost a different scene entirely, losing the context of the supernatural element or the fact that this is a hanging corpse that you're having this interaction with.
You could reasonably ascribe the "fixed" version to a love scene being with your lover in a tree branch or something, it's so vague by comparison and describes nothing.

Let me break down both scenes to what they describe
There's a dead woman hanging by her neck, in a tree, looking into my soul, judging me worthy and smiling as a supernatural wind permeates the area.
Oh shit something spooky or serious is happening.

There's a woman in a tree looking at me and smiling whilst I close my eyes and daydream
Oh okay then, nothing to see here. This is your "fixed" version it's like picking up the holy sword Excalibur and when you read the examine text it says "A piece of metal."
Do not try to tell me the fixed version is better when it fails to perform the simple task of accurately describing the ongoing events.

Jose Harris

Tyranny was good, PoE was a piece of shit, not only from writting standpoint which most is uninteresting shit and words words words, stronghold was a half-assed addition which poor shops you cant even invest in, most classes are shit outside of ciphers and barbarians which are autistic glass cannons, gearing is also shit with uniques being thrown away left and right (which tyranny suffers from as well), multiclassing is shit, interactions are pointless and dungeons that go beyond one floor are really devoid of interest, just look at the dragons nest and then look at the fucking underground castle dungeon

Aren't those backer rewards? Makes it even worse, that they would put dumb shit into the game just because they could make some extra money from it.

Ohalso forgot that PoE doesnt gives you exp for killing random mobs but quests so its ok to swarm the living shit out of dungeons for no good reason, it doesnt even fix the overleveling issue since you get a truckload of quests everywhere

companions in Pillars of Eternity II can now pool their resources when testing skills. Your second-best thief is no longer a useless tag-along, then, but an effective boost to your party’s overall ability
Yay, party composition no longer matters. Viva la Bethesda, complexity and consequences are for nerds anyway.

InXile and Obsidian are just incompetent.

Yeah, they went with "more words means better writing". Fucking degenerates.
They hired tumblr cunts and after driving away all the talent that made them famous and gave us New Vegas, Mask of the Betrayer, Alpha Protocol, etc. I still can't understand how a company can fuck up so badly to be reduced to this.

Pic related. Also, Tides of Cucking was a shit game that tarnishes Planescape simply by existing.

On the other hand, it could mean that harder skill tests require 2 skilled thieves which means part composition matters even more.
What matters is how they choose to balance it, which considering Josh's record will be in the most bland way possible.

We don't live the same kinds of lives as non-whites. We don't value the same things and we don't see the world the same way. The fact is that non-whites are all philosophically closer to each other than they are to us.

oh what, you want XP for beating enemies? I don't think so

Cameron Brown
Cameron Brown

So I don't want it to seem like I'm defending Pillars, because I'm not and the game is trash and for that matter I agree with all your other points. However, not every RPG has to give out experience for beating enemies, some tabletop games don't do that, it's not a strange idea to make XP more come from completing quests. I can understand if you don't like it, but sometimes handing out XP with enemy fights just leads to grinding or even worse making killing things the only optimal route through a challenge where charm or stealth should be equal options.

Ryan Taylor
Ryan Taylor

I actually agree, but for such a combat heavy game it's fairly strange to go down that path, I think there was probably a better way to go about doing it rather than the way they chose to
tfw in some universe there's a revival of crpgs in the vein of Goldbox and ToEE rather than BG

Jordan Morgan

It is a weird choice for Pillars, you're absolutely right there.

PoE tried to be Planescape:Torment too hard, imho. I mean, it's interesting when you have a chat with some kind of extradimensional entity from outer space, but the entire appeal is lost when literally everyone and his mum fill that niche.

Samuel Sanchez
Samuel Sanchez

I think the attempt for them to try and draw back to BG and P:T instead of doing their own thing or making use of the OGL actually hurt their game. They should have just done an underused D&D setting

Jaxon Barnes
Jaxon Barnes

I was a massive Obsidian fan, but PoE, Wasteland 2, Numerana and Tyranny were mediocre at best, and shit at worst.

They made their only good writer Avellone quit and now all they have left is hacks from California who need to virtue signal about faggots and trannys

Matthew Campbell

It's going to be a huge, bug-ridden mess like every Obsidian game from the last 10 years or so.

Wasteland 2 and Not-Torment were actually not Obsidian, they were Inxile who are unrelated aside from a few shared freelance writers like Avalone.

They made their new thing with Tranny and fucked it up. Also, fans had given Obsidian the chance to make whatever the fuck they wanted, it's them that choose to make a watered down BG clone.

Wyatt Allen

I still can't understand how a company can fuck up so badly to be reduced to this.
They started sucking up to goons personally, which then devolved into sucking up to tropers, which then devolved into sucking up to tumblrinas.

Cooper Scott

I'd like to see a game that's focused on dungeon crawling as a career like AD&D was. It would essentially be glorified graverobbing. You'd get XP for each gold piece worth of value carried out of the dungeon in addition to monsters, so there's a greater interest in exploring the dungeon and getting out alive than there is in killing shit, although killing shit will frequently lead to more loot. It's a format that lends itself well to a CRPG but can be a little tedious when tracking it all manually on pen and paper.

Cooper Myers
Cooper Myers

Also, Daggerfall came close to this but it's still structured around killing shit and finishing quests as opposed to looting, and I would also like it if you managed a party rather than a single character. Top notch dungeon generator though. Sage for double post.

Robert Williams
Robert Williams

Pool of Radiance had this to some degree, you'd get XP for killing monsters, but most of it game from finding/stealing treasure, and for the most part random encounters could be negotiated with via threatening them, begging for mercy, bribing, etc. And there was some incentive to do that as the fixed encounters could be fucking brutal at times and you'd need all your spells and items for them

I just want another Dark Sun or Al-Qadim game, both are way underused compared to bog standard fantasy
