I'd recommend RtwP, at very least for the first run. The game was made with this system in mind after all. It also has a "Tactical Time Flow" feature which is basically "press and hold V for continuos slow-motion". I found that a great complementary tool to the usual "stop every second or two" tactics.

Also. Some of the encounters were really challenging on Path of the Damned. I remember all of the dragon fights being super fun. The final boss was tricky at first. The archmage fights were a blast on Path of the Damned. Endless path was decent on Path of the Damned too. Actually, all of the fights were pretty enjoyable on Path of the Damned. I don't remember there being any lame fights. Then again, that was on Path of the Damned. I have no clue what it's like on the easier difficulties.

You need to strategize a bit more.
Some merchants buy shit for more than others (like Orrick compared to Temple). Remember to always have the high charisma guy do the shop shit. Use Friends if necessary,
Check for pickpocketing wherever you go, sometimes you get good items to keep or sell, like in Kuldahar.
Keep only the absolutely necessary consumables ( do not Hoard scrolls a la kingmaker)

As much as I love high mobility actions in TB games, D:OS II not only had too much, they were also not only easily accessible they were far too easy to reset.

Why couldn't obsidian make up a more or less shitty reason in PoE 2 that allowed you to fight Eothas in the end?
You got the gods capable of fueling their energy into people, like Eothas did before PoE 1. Party fought a ton of godlike creatures even in PoE 1. Why couldn't obsidian just make up SOME reason for the game to have a final le epic bossfight? The main character would become the avatar of Woedica or something. The end was just so unsatisfying. Perhaps even more than Tyranny. Now I will die.

Because Sawyer doesn't understand the difference in humbling the player mid/early game (see rymrgand, it's good because it makes you spite him) and doing so at the climax of the story without any "win" or "progress".

If you are playing STR vivi,I'd suggest simply splitting levels roughly in half with a full bab martial class, depending on your weapon.
Like 7-8 levels of THF, 10 of Barb, 10 slayer, something like that.
You can play pure strength vivi, I guess but ways to boost your BAB beyond mutagen help

>>313170950
2 levels into scoundrel or whatever the fuck the rogue skill tree is, then you get the pawn and the little teleport plus the passive bonus to crit, also a few levels into huntsman for the insane height damage bonus and another teleport

Kingmaker. Is it possible to romance Kalikke at all (the tiefling twin sister with blue eyes)?
I find her innocence, tone and portrait more appealing than Kanerah (red eyed). I know you can romance Kanerah but what about Kalikke?
>>
>>313198263
It is, but it basically requires that you initially romance Kanerah first. There's a very limited number of Kalikke romance points to acquire, and I know at least one is locked behind a relationship with Kanerah.

Assuming you've got enough points with both, after you complete their final quest, you'll get a choice to say you love Kanerah, Kalikke or both.

I'm on chapter 3 of Kingmaker and it feels like the enemy save against my spells what must be 80+% of the time. Spells targeting fortitude in particular feel universally worthless.

Am I doing something wrong or is the whole game just built like this?
>>
>>313223407
Enemy stats are overloaded to compensate for the fact you have a six-man party. In general, a lot of the things you fight are also big beefy things with high Con. This makes most partial spellcasters (Bards, Magus etc etc) quite hit or miss with their CC and debuff spells, since they typically lack the spell levels, raw stats and feats needed to get their DC high enough to be reliable.

The Best CC are those you can apply to a wide area, make your guys immune to, and last a long time and continually reapply their debuff. This gives you a huge tactical advantage in that area, and even the beefiest of beefeaters have a 5% chance to be rendered useless every round in said zones. Grease, Web and Stinking Cloud are the go to options for this precise reason.

>unmodded base game
Content: 7/10 - Only fallout sequel after 2 that actually builds on the universe instead of mostly regurgitating and retconning. Game got a lot of memorable scenes, areas to explore, quests with interesting plot and worldbuilding, weapons to use and enemies to fight. A lot of cut content if I remember correctly. Great music. Insane amount of bugs which brings the score down.
Writing: 8/10 - Deep worldbuilding, many choices even in most side quests, memorable characters, distinct characters, great humor, mostly makes sense
Combat: 5/10 - Very basic shooter rpg without ironsights, unbalanced damage/HP values. Melee feels unresponsive

>"correctly" modded base game
Content: 9/10 - Restored content and critical bugs fixed. Still occasionally buggy but a lot less buggy. 10/10 with TTW mod.
Writing: 8/10 - Unchanged
Combat: 7/10 - Mods add proper ironsights, keybindings, sprinting and potentially make damage/HP feel balanced

I've finished Act I in DOS2 and I'm dead tired of this game.
I'm tired of having to pick up shit one by one from every table and every cupboard inb4 just leave shit behind - I can't, I have to pick up every piece of trash
I'm tired of throwing around boxes and barrels to stop the traps or activate something.
I'm tired of teleporting enemies.
I'm tired.
>>
>>313310636
If you're that tired, drop the game, it doesn't get any better than Act 1.
Act 2 is average, at best, with it's open sand box aspect and worth a play, but anything afterwards just goes further downhill.

I am also looking for more CRPGs with good romances.

Entirely subjective of course but for CRPGs I suggest:
-Knights of the old republic (also maybe the sequel)
-Dragon age origins (sequel for good romances but meh game)
-Neverwinter nights 2 if you like elves
-Fallout 4, meh game but good romances in my opinion with lots of dialogue

If you are interested in RPGs that aren't CRPGs:
-Dragon quest 5 (DS or ps2 version), you get to select your wife party member about 25 % into game and her dialogue is dynamic according to environment and your interactions for the rest of game
-Fire emblem awakening and fates, not very interactive romances but a broad array of wives and heartwarming/cheesy (your mileage may vary) dialogue
>>
>>313312592
>Neverwinter nights 2 if you like elves
NWN2 have romances? I thought Obsidian didn't do those.
>>
>>313313128
Yes. NWN2 got a full romance with party member female druid elf that evolves over game. She also joins early.
Expac mask of the betrayer got a bald woman party member romance. I don't fancy bald women tho.
>>
>>313312592
>Neverwinter nights 2 if you like Neeshkas and hate Sawyer
>>
>>313316493
they should have dropped bald woman and focused efforts on making Neeshka romance-able instead
>>
>>313316839
Romance definitely existed, but it was cut. But you get a lot of flirting and a heartwarming "I will never betray you" scene before the final bossfight.
At least high-affection Neeshka canonically survives, so you can roleplay coming back home to finally breed her.

Depends what you mean by 'good' romances? Well written? Lots of content? Simple/Complex?

Kingmaker has some decent romances. Kallike /Kanerah are pretty great (Kanerah is anyway. Kallike doesn't get enough romantic content) and the Nyrissa romance is the longest by far, affecting the main plot hugely (I think its the only way to get the True Ending) and being pretty solid.

Dragon Age: Origins is pretty great. Lots of character interactions and Morrigan's romance, in particular, can form quite organically even if you aren't aiming for it.

Tales of Wuxia has some great romance quest chains, though others are very, very lacklustre.

The new Baldur's Gate is shaping up very well for companion interactions, including romance.

But really, I could probably name thirty+ CRPG's with some form of romance off the top of my head.

I like the companions, turn based combat based on AP, builds not restricted to class.
But I cannot stand the clunkiness of it all. I hate hypermobility of enemies. I hate inventory management. I hate flipping boxes on pressure plates.
Even the story, as generic "you are the chosen one" as it is doesn't irk me. I simply hate this game on mechanical level. It's like the devs wanted to show off "Hey, look, you can manipulate so much of your surroundings" but in the end it's all clutter.
>>
>>313430769
>companions
>turn based combat based on AP

Haven't played a single game, outside of D:OS 1–2 that can potentially fill all these requirements.
Shadowrun series and Wasteland 3, came to mind but I have yet to play them, maybe someone who has can further comment if they fit or not.
Are you new to the genre, or did you just try D:OS II and know that's exactly what you like, and that's it?
>>
>>313431773
It's not that I'm only looking for the things I listed. Turn based or RTwP i usually don't care.
Played Kingmaker and Underrail lately. Love Dragon Age: Origins. Played Neverwinter Nights a lot back in the day. But never once did I feel so annoyed at mechanics in any of these games. D:OS 2 looks nice on paper but actually playing it is exhausting. Maybe it was simply designed with 4 player coop in mind.
>>
>>313432910
>It's not that I'm only looking for the things I listed
Well, that helps. If you're looking for good challenging TB combat above all, there's:
• The Temple of Elemental Evil;
• Knights of the Chalice;
• Jagged Alliance 2.
Considering your aversion to inventory management, I would stay clear of JA2.
Looking for good RTWP with a serviceable story? There's Pillars of Eternity.
Just good story above all else, there's Planescape: Torment & the Baldur's Gate saga, though old as they are, there is some obligatory inventory management, if you don't know what to pick up and what to leave.
>>
>>313432910
I always forget, even though I rate them highly, there's also Knights of the Old Republic, if you're into Star Wars, and looking for story>combat.

Different times, different audiences. These games weren't made for kids, as in early teens.
The target audience was more mature and, even if it wasn't, feel like that maturing age as changed anyways and it tends to drag out.
Not to sound like you need an adult brain to appreciate the humor, it's just different and the culture era which FO 2 borrows from is long gone.

I'm in what I assume is one of the last areas in Pathfinder: Kingmaker and I encountered a gamebreaking bug.

There are supposed to be events with my companions but none of them spawn in. I completed all of their personal quests, all the side content, etc. My quest log was nothing but green checkmarks from top to bottom and I get nothing.

People online have suggested rolling back a save before I went through the portal but that hasn't done anything for me. Same bug every time no matter how far back I go.


Am I completely fucked?
>>
>>313461262
3 that I can think of, apart from the ring you found there's a pile of dirt in the west area of nashkel with the best armour in the game, and another ring in the second area you go to (below friendly arm, with the big pillar that tells you directions)
>>
>>313464098
How many roll backs have you tried and are they before you specifically enter HatET?
Had a similar issue, and it took me two loads before even entering the portal to fix it.
>>
>>313464825
Quite a few. Also, sorry for the shit formatting it has been a while.
I hard saved right before the portal and have tried reloading that save a number of times. When that didn't work I went further back and completely re-did the fey trials quest from the beginning. Hard saved before the portal again after that and same thing, no companions on the first floor.
>>
>>313465079
Are they just not present at all? The inside is completely empty? My issue was, they were being killed.
>>
>>313462143
Most players steal builds from forums, look into that if you're having trouble. Pure psi kinda stopped being viable after it got reworked, now there's a limit of abilities you can have equipped at the same time. Psi reserves are one of the problems crafting solves completely, and even then eventually you get more money than you could ever spend. Heavily armoured gun dude can get boring, and shields are better than armour anyway (they stop damage completely instead of reducing it). You really should invest in crafting. Stealth is amazing in this game, you can avoid hard fights and a lot of quests reward you for using it. Remember, you don't level up by killing stuff. You get exp from sorting through trash. Depot A mutants only give you 2 or 3 exp max, you can skip them completely. If you want to level up quickly, tunnels below GMS compound have tons of loot and easy enemies. And make sure to plan out your build first, Underrail isn't a game that allows you to improvise much.
>>
>>313465495
Yeah. The first floor is completely empty save for some enemies. I checked youtube for what is supposed to happen and the rooms that are supposed to contain the companion cutscenes are completely empty.
>>
>>313465645
That's odd, no idea what might cause that.
Is the game version up to date?
>>
>>313465620
Also I can't stress enough how OP crafting is, you can easily become immortal by walking around with 4 types of armour in your inventory for all damage types and just switching them up according to situation.
>>
>>313465801
Yeah, latest legitimate version updated through steam. No mods or anything installed.
I checked around various places and it's a really old bug that supposedly was fixed. Super annoying but whatever, I'll probably start over with some class mods or something until the Wrath of the Righteous beta goes live.

ye, i'll make sure to invest in those skills. is the merchant skill a must or nah?
>>
>>313467018
Psi abilities are still great, you just run out of mana quickly. You should always stock up on psi-boosters (which again, crafting takes care of). You could try a hybrid build, psi empaths get some really cool interactions in tons of quests, thought control especially.
>>313467446
Mercantile is trash in every rpg ever, and here money is very easy to get. Just collect all the trash you come across and sell it. Merchants mainly buy crafting components.

Mercentile does affect both prices and what characters have available. There are some thresholds like 55 skill and 80 skill for one merchant. If I remember correctly, it's not how much points you put in, but the effective skill level, i.e. with Will bonus and any item bonuses added in.

It's definitely more story-focused than I thought it'd be, though the story picks up only after Depot A. At the beginning you just do a couple of tasks that establish the lore, which is pretty damn fun. Lots of reactivity for different types of characters too. I heard Expedition is even better in that regard. Just make sure you don't fuck up your build.

7.5/6/8.

Content main quest and most sidequest would barely reach 6, but all the DLC adds some actual nice questlines and combat encounters. Writing is a downgrade from first pillas, attempts to get you invested or actually make main quest and everything else happening somewhat interconnected fails utterly and half the characters barely get interesting characterization/interactions.

Combat is salvaged a bit by all the extra subclass and skills (even though they did a sidegrade from pillars 1). I am still a bit generous with the 5 party limit, everything being per encounter and most of the interesting combat encounters being dlc, on top of the turn based mode not working, but even if it required dlc,, I was challenged at times and if I ever replayed the game, it would be for the sake of trying new builds.

Mea Culpa.
>>
>>313521789
Content 5/10 (there is a decent amount of stuff,but most of it is uninspired and boring)
Writing 4/10 (I swear Obsidian stopped giving a fuck about the story halfway through)
Combat 8/10 (I guess it's the only part of the game that works and that's where Josh's heart really was)
Played it for 40 hours.

>>313522832
Annoying little fuckers, it's even worse in another town.
>>
>>313524059
I think in my case by the 40 hour mark I had seen most of the content the game has to offer (not 100% the game mind you, just enough to make up my mind about it) and I'd beaten the main quest. They I realized that this shit is not getting any better and simply stopped playing.

One thing I appreciate about EPA is Killap going out of his way to add a useful recruitable female companion into the game, because he accurately noticed that aside from Mira, who is useless, FO2 companion roster is a motherfucking sausagefest.
>>
>>313521789
Neat, in the middle of replaying it.
Content: 7/10, The first DLC is actually pretty good, though SSS puts me to sleep. Haven't done the third yet.
Writing: 4/10. Faction plots are overdone, and when you need a patch to address the main story, you're too far gone.
Combat: 6.5/10. Sidegrade at best. Fails to realize what made Pillars 1 combat enjoyable at worst.

Probably gonna update my content when I finish the 3rd dlc. All I know about it is that archmages are involved, and I like them.

I have a question for BG3 players, larian said that they were taking heavy inspiration from underrails mechanics for the game any truth to that?

>>313550970

In an interview they mentioned that they were really amazed on how good underrail played and wanted the combat and turn mechanics for their game. This was circa 2018-2019ish

Guess that was a lie.

>>313551523
It's not going to happen – not with BG3 – they can't overwhelmingly deviate from 5E.
Maybe they're considering it, for w/e turd they're going to shit out next.

Speaking of UnderRail, is there a discernible logomark of the game?
Something in game perhaps?
>>

How would you even describe underrails combat mechanics? By the AP mechanics? By the damage mechanics?
I honestly don't remember if underrail did anything unique outside the crafting system and that wasn't THAT unique.

If PoE1 gets a 6.5 in writing, Deadfire has to be a 3 tops.
I think both deserve higher than that, but I don't really care enough to dispute it. As long as they're accurate relative to each other. I'd give them an 8 and 4 respectively, if you're still taking input.
I don't remember the other scores, I haven't been saving these, so hopefully these line up.
Combat is an improvement in many ways, but held back by a few strange decisions. A lot of the weird inconsistencies from the first game made in the name of balance were ironed out and made more transparent, the AI is smarter and more customizable, multi-classing was a huge leap forward that works really well all around, but then empowerment is a dumb gimmick, skill management is basically pointless now that it's per-encounter, and the whole system of resting/wounds/the rare per-rest abilities is entirely trivialized. Overall 8.5/10, better than the first, if only just.
Content is another mixed bag, but mostly far worse. There's a lot more numerous and varied encounters in the world, and a few are really fun and well designed dungeons, but most are completely forgettable filler scenes. Also the trainwreck that is naval combat should probably be included here since it's the majority of your overworld interactions. 5/10
If you're including the DLC (and megabosses), it would probably bring everything up a full point. They're a lot of fun and all around much better than the base game.

PoE 1 was approached in a very different manner, scoring wise. This 24H polling stuff, started with FO NV, 2 days ago.
Been flying off the handle, trying new stuff but so far, I enjoy this new system and it looks to be receptive – thus far – and would like to go back to all the previous titles, eventually, if people enjoy the system.
Despite this, with the ratings so far, Deadfire is not exactly off writing wise, from your gauge. It's currently sitting at 4.25 with your input.
Need to think of a way to rephrase the:
>Help us rate it, if and how you played it
Added the "how" to imply DLCs/expansions, and I don't know if that triggered the hourly count from everyone or if it was the "if".
Not exactly a problem, but Anons are already helping willingly, wouldn't want to burden them with digging up playtime when it's not being used.

I think the Dark Eye setting is really underappreciated. It strikes a nice balance between edgy Warhammer and high fantasy Forgotten Realms, and it's well-written to boot.

A lot, fixed a shitton of bugs, adds new and restored content like EPA, Abbey and Sulik's sister quest, applies some QoL features, adds new talking heads and companions. It's essentially a huge FO2 overhaul. It's also modular, so you don't have to install the features you don't like.

Is there a fucking game that doesnt use D&D combat style?

I´m tired of this overused meme, D&D as a vidya system is B O R I N G. Furthermore, it´s annoying and completely pointless.
If you make it turnbased, it´s limited by actions. If you make it real time, pause every second to design a new target or cast anything.
But casters are also limited by an amount of spells/day.
Shit i miss Fallout 1&2, Vampire and the likes so much.

The latest BG3 was fun if you removed combat or mod it to become DoS:II in 4k and cringy dialogues. Which it´s literally what it has.

If you enjoyed Fallout 1–2, try UnderRail.

>>313629704
I started with both psy and marksman guy. I can´t get pass the exploration of caves since everything kills me instantly. It´s fun but i think i messed up with leveling. Making it oddity instead of kill per xp.

I think the fact i was using psy powers made it even worse, i´ve just started now with guns and crafting and i already cleared the first two quests without a problem.

In D:OS 2 should I focus on one type of damage (physical/magical) or try to go 50/50?
I've read a little about it and it seems that it all boils down to popping enemy armor or magic armor as fast as you can so focus on one type of damage sounds optimal.
>>
>>313651364
H-haha.
>>
>>313658235

50/50 if you're looking for RP purposes.
>>
>>313658235
I'm playing the game for the first time now and went 50/50
There's enemies that have really high magic armour and abilities to restore it, so for them you need to use physical to take them down quickly, and others do the same for physical
It's possible i'm just shit at this game though and going 100% magic is a viable option

>>
>>313758284
Its even funnier when you realize that she didn't really give a shit about Maegar Varn and all of his people literally disappearing into thin air, and didn't spare a single person to help investigate. Varn even tells you he called her out on it and also that she had a fit about the fact that he handed his lands over to you as a way to pay his blood debt.

Jamandi is a cunt if you actually pay attention to the story.

Is it really Jumanji's fault though?
As much as I enjoyed the game, what got me hooked was the political intrigue opening plot and we know where that leads … nowhere.
Not sure how the tabletop OC develops, but can you blame them for a faulty abandoned piece of narrative?

not knowing the baron had his own shit to deal with, I can excuse, that was probably a misstep on the devs part.

its literally written in the story though that she didn't give a shit about varn and his people vanishing and couldn't be "bothered" to waste any effort on them, which is why varn says he chewed her out and left her "fuming" back in restov, and that he couldn't give a shit less about her anymore after seeing how she really is.

Literally ALL jumanji cares about is making the sword lords #1 again, if they even ever were (they got fucking thrashed by pathfinders alexander the great) and it becomes especially evident in varnhold vanishing.

Bruh, they were getting rekt by hordes of bandits years before choral even came along, the swordlords were sad. choral just put the nail in their coffins when the group that refused to surrender got obliterated by two red dragons under his command.
>>
>>313759652
She might be a bitch, sure. What I'm trying to say is that you don't exactly know her side of the story.
You get the info dump at the start, and very small tidbits up until the resolution of her plot. If this was writing class, you'd get a Z, for jumping from the intro to the conclusion, with absolutely nothing in between.

How much would I be missing in PF:K if i auto’d kingdom management? I’m about to finish act 2 (level 7 party) but it really annoys me having to stop adventuring to go all the way back to the capital to deal with some stupid pop up that has minimal effect on the gameplay
>>
>>313779056
Auto is a bad idea b/c of Artisans (and their uniques) alone, not to mention you'd miss all Throne Room and Rank-Up events. Teleports and Aviaries can be unlocked mid-game, and that point you can reach the Kingdom Management interface practically from anywhere.

Also, don't forget PK's internal logic: MQ is always the top priority, followed by Companion and Artisan quests, then you can spend the rest of your time doing side quests / errands and exploration. Ofc whenever something seems urgent (read the Journal!), do that ASAP.

This might actually be the first one I have to revisit at a later date.
Was pretty happy about this half-face gas mask, but the more I look at it, the more I dislike it. It works for the genre and the obvious FO throwback with theirs, just can't bare with it anymore.
Think it's because it is starting, or always looked more like a prop for graffiti rather than a post-apocalyptic face mask.

PFKM's RNG is perfect. Some guy wrote a dice mod and did a billion (!) rolls, and the result proved it was indeed random. What you're experiencing is Owlcat's bloated stats even for trash-tier enemies. That's why buffs matter so much and also serve as a natural a pleb-filter.
>>
>>313860425
I have 200 hours in PFKM and unironically feel the same as these reviewers. It's shite watching even the most trashiest of mooks consistently save against my spells and the vast majority of fights are just buff and auto attack.
>>
>>313861809
Probably because you so got used to linear scaling that anything else feels abnormal. Like people who watch movies because of the story and feel dissatisfied if it doesn't go from A to B with a definite conclusion at the end.

In PFKM the floor of the enemies is high but their ceiling is usually normal, which means you have to reach a certain threshold to be able to hurt them, but once you did it you can continue to hurt them in a reliable manner.

I'm about to finish the quest to ally Redding with one of the 3 towns, leaning towards New Reno. Seems like NCR is just going to repeat history and Vault City is a nazi Germany reenactment. What do you think?
>>
>>313869409
Moral ambiguities aside, considering all the 3 options are working to further their own goals at all costs, NCR would probably be the lesser evil.
Vault City outright sucks everything dry, with no regards of consequences, with Lynette in power.
New Reno would (((infiltrate))), through the wide spread of degeneracy and drugs, until all financial gain is extorted from it.
NCR, can't remember, don't expect them to overwhelmingly help but they would at least provide further protection, in order to move troops further closer to Vault City.
To be honest, don't even remember this quest at all.

Of course you can. It's an atypical, Tank vs a Paladin fight - two defensive chars who can take the beating but have limited offence, so it will naturally be a slog. The #1 priority is to survive until Fredero runs out of Sunder Armor and Lay On Hands, concentrate on this.

True Strike is needed to be able to reliably hit him, Greater Invisibility (maybe Blur) is great to force Misses and to be able to safely heal yourself, Enlarge Person is a double-edged sword but good as an end-fight DMG boost. Also, don't forget about "per rest" items too!

You can go Zen Archer tank. Fighter for Taunt, bow skill tree for the massive defense bonus right in the beginning of the game, gay looking robe from the Wilds for the defense bonus and full Dex. Champion specialization as well.
100 defense is achievable in Lothering, and after that you can quickly become untouchable for most melee attacks except multiattack autohits that oneshot you because of no armor.

Also, my easiest Revenant fight in Redcliffe.

Without any spoilers, a certain thing can be avoided by impregnating a love interest when she prompts you to. Then, in inquisition, you can see the child, and they're semi plot relevant.

Even though it turned into the writing department conversation, as per usual and inevitable with PS:T, what the Anon was looking for was a sci-fi fantasy creative setting.

Dragon Age is a weird game. On paper it's the most cliche, medicore shit I've ever played, but for some reason I keep replaying this game over and over again and have bucketloads of fun everytime. I guess 'tis the unapologetically high fantasy writing and charming companions that keep it together. The game just wants you to have fun and in the end it works. Also, Leliana best waifu.

Haven't played it yet but for what reason do people shit on it?
>>
>>314077661
It's the third addition to a well established and respected two part saga, that – so far from what I've gathered, and my tastes – disregards what made the original a cult classic to begin with.
>>
>>314077661
It doesn't have anything to do with BG except for the setting. Also it's not a bad game, people just have ridiculous standards or just don't like Larian's standard game model
>>
>>314066461
Wokesters seems to be satisfied with it. Must be the fluid animations, impeccable writing and utmost faithfulness towards the traditions of the franchise!
>>
>>314081547
Man. You're really trying to push this retarded narrative here, aren't you. No one fucking cares about this. So you can create a nontraditional gender character. Who cares.
>>
>>314081547
For all I care, wacky, trans, gay, nigger, chink, gender fluid, fat or an amalgamation of all in character creation is the least of my worries.
What worries me is NPCs interacting with a clearly male face fat body with chink eyes, nigger skin, female bimbo level breast and lips with a fully erect futa horse cock and finding it perfectly normal.
>>
>>314081315
The latter for me. Good for dicking around with friends, not good for an immersive RPG. Their writing team is also the worst in the genre.
>>
>>314084050
I care
>>
>>314089458
Why? The problem isn't in character creation, it's in the lack of feedback in the game from your choices.
Just like real life, the problem isn't on adults doing w/e they want with themselves, it's you and everyone else being forced to not share any opinions that are not positive.
>>
Can't stop making mistakes today, apparently.
>>314089243
See: >>314089772
>>
>>314084050
It's not about a specific narrative but letting a small group of obnoxious loud-mouths hold you hostage and dictate your in-game content. It's almost always the sign of much bigger problems.

>>314084549
Did you just assume that a clearly male face fat body with chink eyes, nigger skin, female bimbo level breast and lips with a fully erect futa horse cock isn't perfectly normal?

>>314089772
Well said. So far Larian is doing precisely what I expected from them since the announcement. They were going to rape the BG franchise anyway (it's ingrained in their design philosophy), but at very least don't let SJWs feast on it (as it happened with SoD).
>>
>>314095313
Oh my god. You sound like a whiny fucking bitch. Go take your silly cultural "war" to /v/. At least there you'll get your shitty (you)s and naive anons who fall for such bullshit.
>>
>>314096273
What culture war? The guy has a point, while you do not.
Reactivity in your choices, in this case character creation ones, should be something anyone that enjoys the genre look for and accept.
Role Playing Game, if they're just going to ignore your erect futa horse cock, why even play….
>>
>>314096273
>>314096507
And to further expand, you know exactly why they cannot do it! Because any parsing remark (doesn't even need to be derogatory), in this case his female with a beard, would be met with the very low but vocal SJW minority (if it even is a minority anymore in the medium) screeching for the company to go bankrupt, and in some cases even succeeding.
>>
>>314096507
Point? What point am I trying to make you dumbfuck of a being. Here, let me breakdown the series of events that occurred, so you can closely understand the chain of events. Perhaps you might even come to understand the elicit responses he got from me:
>anon makes a post about muh scary s jay w
>tell anon to fuck off no one cares
>anon says "a small group of obnoxious loud-mouths hold you hostage and dictate your in-game content."
>"It's almost always the sign of much bigger problems."
Gee, I wonder what he meant by this, you fucking neanderthal.
>>
>>314098228
Is that all you got? You're pathetic.
Whatever his intentions might be, which neither you nor I can know, only speculate; so far every single thing he has said is a indisputable fact.
If you cannot comprehend that character creation choices should spark in-game reactivity, for the betterment of the genre, and the only reason they do not do it, is precisely solely because of muh scary s jay w, I have no desire to continue this conversation.

Exanima is a dungeon crawler through and through. Just like Icewind Dale there isn't much of a story. It's mostly combat. You have to like the combat, otherwise, you're not going to enjoy the game all that much. However, the exploration is very good. The game takes place underground, you encounter lots of weird creatures. So far, I've seen undead zombies and skeletons. But there's more scary stuff underground. The designer has a art station, you can see some of the monster designs there, spoilers though: https://www.artstation.com/zetheros
The armor designs are neat as well. If you like good armor designs that is.
>all I see is combat upon combat.

>>
>>314154114
Played around with both and found Sorcerer a lot more fun overall personally.
It does take a while to come online though, as you stated, and you do need to use the x per day Rods but eventually you can't even hold all your spells. While with Kineticist, ended up using just 2–3.
>>
>>314154584
Up to the point where I stopped I could do AoE damage sure yeah epic, but other than that I either just spammed buffs and skipped turn/used a 3 damage cantrip or used a spell slot to do 3 times less damage than my knifemaster
What did you like about sorcerer so much?
>>
>>314154835
I made it a blaster, didn't use it to buff at all, it was all damage.
10 level 1 casts, 9 level 2–5 casts for each level, 8 level 6–8 for each level; literally could not run out of spells to cast.
Chain Lightning into Quickened instant CL, or CL into Quickened Fireball, or w/e into Quickened Magic Missile and the list goes on…. I had my fun.

>>
>>314156285
Nigga I asked you what you liked about the sorcerer, you told me all this shit about quickened chain lightning or whatever and 6 or 8 level spells
That shit is all level 12+ minimum
Word yourself better then if that's not what you meant, also you can't go past level 17 unless you're playing solo I don't think. But what's there to do at the early levels then? Like, before you get to halfway past the game? I told you already it just felt like shit so go ahead and help me figure out how to make it not
>>
>>314156858
I said exactly what I enjoyed about it here:
>eventually you can't even hold all your spells
In comparison to Kineticist.
Then, I expanded by talking about what you can do with it and included anything from level 1 to spell level 8. You decided to specifically target one of the single points I've made.
>you can't go past level 17
You're wrong, reached 19 playing with a full party.
>what's there to do at the early levels then
What's there to do with Kineticist at early levels? From my experience, you either auto or eventually use the AoE and at end game you do both of those and Deadly Earth with Trip.

>What's there to do with Kineticist at early levels?
From my gameplay you're basically an archer with AoE options, I'm never lacking for something to do when there's enemies to burn, when I tired sorcerer until I got burning arc it was straight up just 'use grease then watch the fight', again is there a way to make it not feel like shit? Or do you just gotta live with it?

Waste time and resources? Anon, this is implemented into every game that gives you the option to pick between gender…. If you truly want to argue outside of programing, writing isn't even expensive or laborious. None of these two are memory holes in any game (unless you have G.R.R. Martin as the sole writer).
Why wouldn't you want reactivity to your choices in the game? Like I said, it doesn't have to be derogatory. Simple remarks on character creation choices, the weapon you're using, the armor you have and the countless possible combinations is a very easy and simple, easy and cheap way to create immersion and make the game feel more alive.

Help us rate it, if and with all the content you've played with (24H polling):
Content / Writing / Combat
xx/10
Leave a ambiguous pseudonym.
>>
>>314191114
Content – 7/10 • Find the content decent, with a lot to do and different scenarios to explore but, considering this is a sequel, there aren't many new or very distinct and interesting places.
Writing – 9/10 • As a big fan of PS:T the similarities cannot be ignored. It's a different game but it's there. If there's any criticism to be had it would probably be the ambiguity of some of the dialog tree alignment choices, but isn't life exactly like this? It isn't all black and white.
Combat – 6/10 • Not a big fan, I would be a fool not to recognize the sheer amount of options and choices you have with force powers and the like, but I always gravitate towards melee one shots or lightning spam.
Also, where the fuck is my light-saber Atris, you fucking whore? To this day, I still feel the disappointment of talking about it and never actually getting it.

leave it in. i don't care. let's rage.
>>
>>314191114
Are we talking about the game with a Restoration Patch or not? Because those are two completely different games.
Anyway:
Content - 8/10. The game is pretty fucking long and it's paced surprisingly well, so that it doesn't drag on. Also, there is a fuckton of replayability value and some really crazy ways you can roleplay your Exile. I've played through this game a dozen of times and almost every playthrough was different. Obviously, it all falls apart in the end, but hey, that's Obsidian for ya.
Writing - 9/10. This is what The Last Jedi should've been, Rian, you expectations subverting fuck. I especially appreciate the ease in which the story melds into your RP style.
Combat - 5/10. Not good, not bad, extremaly easy to break. At least you start as Jedi right off the bat, so that's a plus. On the other hand, aside from HK-47, the non-Jedi companions are useless.
t. NeverForgetVisas.
>>
>>314202978
>and with all the content you've played with
If you've played with the Restoration Patch yes.
Feel like these sorts of add-ons are pretty much a standard these days.
If for w/e reason you happen to have missed it, you can still pretty accurately judge it from your experience.

Companions are found in an order that unless you made your PC a front-liner, Durance (a Priest of Magran) often ends up as an off-tank. You can tell this wasn't the main intention behind his design, but he happens to be competent in the role. Even if you switch him back to a backline caster later on.

This argument is such a joke. I seriously question any ones intellect if they truly try to push this agenda as valid.
The most praised, critically acclaimed, and well known game in the whole genre, for being a masterpiece, literally has more reading than gameplay.
Word count is obviously not a metric of good writing but, at the same time, it is not a metric of bad writing.
Some of best fantasy books ever written are huge for a reason, well written descriptions of anything adds to the work, not retract from it.
Obviously video games are not books, and you solely do not rely on imagination like the former, but until you can actually really show what you want expressed accurately, putting it in good quality writing is the far superior choice.

This isn't true at all. He hasn't even made it past the first few hours of most of the games here. He talks about getting filtered in every game. He just talks about which girl he wants to fuck in each of the games, which isn't actually meaningful contribution. Look at right now, what he's actually contributed. It's nothing.

>>314233356
His freak outs about american politics where he screeches and calls people fat and stupid suggest what he's actually like when the facade falls. Spamming the same "I love you!" over and over again is just words. He gets banned all the time because he can't keep his mouth shut with his extremely biased politics. I'm not even american and I can tell he's a living stereotype of the american retards who just take one side and believe the world will explode if the other side gets their way, which is stupid.
I've been here for years and once I realized this I realized he's just a troll, intentionally or not.

Based. Basically the opposite. I've never seen him make an off topic post, I've never seen him get mad and fly off the handle calling people names like an asshole, he posts himself playing games constantly and his screenshots let you follow along, he has screenshots of himself beating games on hard difficulties and even makes videos instead of getting filtered on the first level, and he's even compiling stuff into his own website. He does everything the opposite. He contributes in many ways and I've never seen him act like an asshole. It's crazy that they're "friends" since they're basically opposites.

To be honest with you. I don't really care about writing all that much. I mainly care about gameplay and combat. Chalice 2 - Augury of Chaos, didn't really have much of a plot going for itsel. Save for, "Go chase down Yanos. He's going to implode the universe. Which is bad." But that game enthralled me for over two hundred hours based on its combat.

That's a perfectly fine stance to take, weird in the genre but w/e, and I understand big word counts might scare burgers but, like Sawyer himself says:
>the use of prose to convey meaningful action and details that are not visible to the player’s eye;
>and giving the player a range of responses that seems appropriate to the moment,
>builds off of the player’s choices, and leads to entertaining outcomes.
If the writing is good or not, is one thing. Complaining about word count alone is another.
Jeff talks big but he's in a medium where pretty much his writing alone could propel him to #1 and, to this day, he has yet to produce.
I'll refrain from further comments, lest I embarrass myself, considering I have yet to read it all.

Like for example, to expound upon what I said. Pathfinder: Kingmaker is a huge game. It was made by Owlcat Games, a rather small company. There were a lot of issues with the game, that a first playthrough of it, you would have caught those issues and addressed them.

Never had a problem with high word count myself. I can pretty easily recognize at a glance if something is going to be random descriptive filler or meaningful text.

Honestly, if it even is a problem, the problem might be that they do play them too much.
There's a reason why you should never proof read your own text, for example. You've read it yourself so many times that the most obvious mistakes will pass right by you.

Well, here's to hoping Wrath is good. They made a bunch of posts saying they've learned from their mistakes, and are working towards improvement. Hopefully, that means less issues. I know a bunch of people who were burned by Kingmaker on release.

Can't blame them, can only imagine how dreadful that experience might have been.
Was one of the "lucky ones" that got in only after the Enhanced Edition.

Baldur's Gate 3 looks pretty nice though. That character creator is amazing from what I've seen. I bet you can make all types of cool characters. But yeah. You're probably right, I guess I'll wait. Solasta is also looking pretty good too.

God, I loved reading her little stories in the alpha. I think Owlcat did a good job of incorporating her into the game. Super excited to have her in my party. Once the game comes out.

Black Desert's character creator is really nice. Never played it though. Don't want to. Looks like one of those grindy games that will suck your soul dry.

A role-playing video game (commonly referred to as simply a role-playing game or an RPG as well as a computer role-playing game or a CRPG) is a video game genre where the player controls the actions of a character (and/or several party members) immersed in some well-defined world. Subgenres include Action RPGs, First-person party-based RPGs aka "Blobbers", MMORPGs, Roguelikes and roguelike-likes, Sandbox RPGs, Tactical RPGs, and many hybrids between those categories.

Fuck it, it IS story time. You're WRONG!
Once upon a time I had no name, even though my practices were far and wide; from little kids playing with each other, to adults playing someone else in the bedroom.
Two nerds, with little to no experience either on the playground or the bedchamber, decided to perpetuate this very lack of social skills for all eternity. They made a game for themselves, to experience through imagination, everything they missed out on their childhood and the grownup sex life.
D&D their creation was called, and very popular it became. Turns out there wasn't just two nerds in the world but millions, and they all wanted a game for themselves. But what was it, you may ask, what new wide-spread game was this and what was it made for? And so I was named … Role Playing Game, for all to see and understand the D&D.
An orphan I was, named and abandoned by the very people that despise me but adoption was swift, fast and multiple. From basement to basement I traveled, never enough as a single entity to satiate the dwellers hunger. Discarded once again and thrown out, they made their own bastard names out of mine. Pen and Paper Role Playing Games, Tabletop Role Playing Games, Traditional Role Playing Games … and so I was forgotten.
>>
>>314273712
In the year 1981 the first great war began. The synthetic computer had two creations of its own, and so my name was called forth again, Ultima and Wizardry were its births. The natural nerds, enraged about such events, rised from their dungeon basement dwellings and sought conflict with the synthetics for what they considered their birthright. War, war never changes … the end of my name occurred pretty much as anyone predicted. Too many claims, not enough names to go around. The details are trivial and pointless, the reasons as always, purely human ones.
Wiped clean of life, the synthetics sought to rebirth my title. Believing in their ultimate success, arrogance took place and the goal, yet another bastard, Computer Role Playing Game. What other choice did I have? Oblivion or the illegitimate claim….
Adulterated as it was, I grew exponentially. The golden age, they called it and all around the world, my name was heard, praised and respected. Limitless potential for a sustained, well nurtered growth, the future was very bright if not for change.
>>314273989

>>314273712
And what can change the nature of a name? A pure evil force, unholy in it's power and swiftness. Only action it sought by any means, the devil itself. War it chased and so my nature was changed, the greatest age this scoundrel life as ever seen came to a close. The archfiend took its toll, my soul devoured. Now aged, elderly, something of a bygone era I rested; my gravestone named, Classic Role Playing Game.
Many came to visit, some to pay respects, some to desecrate and some to mourn. Many called for my name, never to be answered once again, until one fateful day.
>>314274162

>>314273712
That day is closer than you remember, called forth by the great drunk himself, the victim of the unfair public court and his side-kicks, the autist and the banker; I rose once more, ready to be heard but what use does an old rag have, besides knowledge? And so, brought back I was, not only to my golden age title but with all the learning I've once gathered.
And here I stand to claim enough, of this evil! The archfiend will face it's death — I'm the one who will sentence it. From a name of a crumbling empire, a name I steal … curse you devil, blinded by your faded power, your unholyness will be taken. Curse you, wretch, thriving in your blind action, your swiftness will be claimed. It is not only my will … but a force greater than my own, the power of the synthetics and the inebriated himself, will keep you at bay! CRPG is my name now, BOTH Computer and Classic Role Playing Game but never again either, lest the unholy consume our souls once more.
I am the CRPG.
