Just have high int and wis. Be careful what you do in the civic festhall. I don't think you need any mods for the game.
>>
>>394514338
Start with 18 WIS / 16 INT / 14 CHA. Bump CHA to 16 first then alternate points between INT and CHA, unless for whatever reason WIS falls behind.
Buy the items that boost these stats ASAP. Save before every conversation, explore different options if you have the will. The containers by the merchants are great to store items.

>>394523468
>Like, the tattoos?
Yes, the tattoos. I didn't want to spoil what they were.
>won't the items disappear if I put them in the containers?
No, they won't.
>If they're by the merchants why not just sell them?
You'll want to keep some items without them taking up inventory slots.
>why specifically that stat spread?
WIS grants bonus to experience gained, 18 is the max a stat can reach at character creation.
With 16 INT you'll pass 90% of its total checks right from the beginning, which account for close to 38% of the total stat checks in the game.
The same is true for CHA (22% of the total checks in the game) but you don't have any more starting points to spend, hence the following priority once the game starts.

I played them both for the first time recently. The worst thing about them was that a lot of the spell/item descriptions are just flat out wrong and shit won't work the way you expect it to, like invisibility not breaking on half the shit the spell says it does. Otherwise they were ok. Definitely overrated, but not bad. Very combat heavy. Playing BG2 specifically was interesting because you can see all the beginnings of the modern Bioware bullshit in it, from the pacing of major story beats to the companion romance shit. Writing is worse than all the boomers say it is but not bad. A far cry from a real tabletop experience but still probably the best d&d stuff you can get in a video game without losing the ruleset entirely.

What's a good party for PoTD in PoE 1? I was thinking

Who else? Maybe Pallegina for offtanking? I'm not really sure who the sixth could be.
>>
>>394528073
I guess I got to give BG's a go then. The autistic min maxing just really ain't my thing. PoE was better in that aspect, but the story, followers and the world felt too dull.

Underrail is really fun. I got it in the steam sale and I've already sunk 40 hours in.

This comes with the disclaimer to be prepared to get kicked around. A lot. Especially when you're new and don't understand the "meta". It's not at all uncommon to wind up having to restart at Depot A, which is roughly 3-4 hours in (all fucking muties must fucking hang). You eventually have a moment where everything clicks and you realize the game requires you to be a war criminal. You must gas, burn, booby-trap, or explode everyone you fight. Sometimes you do all of the above. The game pulls no punches, and neither should you.

If all of that sounds intimidating, it's incredibly rewarding once it all "clicks". When I killed these one mother fuckers that hijacked a train after they had killed me I was rock-hard. Underrail has seriously clawed its way into my top 5 games of all time, and I haven't even finished it yet. Or the expansion, for that matter.

Understandable. Underrail is a seriously flawed game, as much as a I love it. The wiki quite frankly sucks, and Underrail is one of those games that pretty much demands you use outside information to play it. The game's "tutorial" is a joke, it is the equivalent of explaining to a child the concept of swimming and then throwing them overboard into the ocean and expecting them to make it to shore. Many of the feats are misleading, and the game really doesn't cut you any slack in terms of re-setting. Invested in a fucking worthless feat and then found out on the forums its bugged and isn't what the in-game description lead you to believe it was? Tough luck, get fucked in the ass. I could keep going.

I still love the game. Once you take your lumps and understand what the game is asking of you, nothing that I have played in this genre can compare gameplay wise. I think it is stupid to label someone a zoomer or pleb for not liking a game of this type. The fact that Depot A is notorious for filtering people, and that happens basically in the prologue, cements that fact. Having to restart hours into the game because you're soft-locked isn't everybody's bag.

I didn't find UR to be as flawed as you're making it out to be, and the game absolutely does not demand outside information to play.
Now, if you want to optimize your very first playthrough of course outside resources are going to be required – for any game.

What feats did you find misleading, or bugged? Can't say that was my experience, but our builds are completely different.
>>
>>394652262
Doctor and Fast Metabolism, on paper, do the same things. Fast metabolism though is objectively better because it works with the regen vest whereas doc does not. Pellet mayhem is broken, as is barrel stare.

The game absolutely demands outside info to play. If you don't use a build at the very least you're SOL unless you're a seasoned turboautist CRPG vet.
>>
>>394654082
someone didn't properly read the descriptions
>>
>>394654082
When it comes to Doctor and Fast Metabolism I have to agree with >>394654565, the distinction is clear on the description. Can't comment on the ones you say are broken.
Maybe I fit the bill by now, and previous discussions here did somewhat informed me before playing.
>>
>>394654565
It wasn't just me. I will never claim to be an intelligent guy, but they could've written them clearer. I can only blame it on slav-erisms because there are a few weird English workings in the game, from the feats to the actual dialogue.

Doc also appears in dialogue, which they don't tell you about. I just remembered that.

On oddity you'll likely be underleveled and the leveling will be less consistent on some stretches of the game, on classic you'll eventually be overleveled

Navigators care about their bloodlines, because their navigation skills are genetic. Essentially every navigator is a eugenic gene nightmare.
So I have a feeling she won't just spread her legs for everyone, and even in a 1% chance that you are "good enough", she will spend most of the coitus doublechecking your DNA structure.

I don't think its even actively bad in most respects, just never really gets good either. Lots of missed opportunities, like most of your companions no longer chiming in shortly after they join, no real motivation to not side with the Doc and help the Board unless you just want to be a dick, a lack a identity in the megacorps, just a lot of wasted potential

If you're really desperate for an RPG it's passable. That really is the best I can say about it.

The game has charm, it just doesn't reveal itself until you're several hours in. The worlds feel very samey and most of the quests are completely forgettable. There is a running theme of the game setting up something that could be great, and fumbling it. Over. And over. And over again. Also, moral ambiguity/greyness? Nowhere to be found. The game beats you over the head with it's message. Its stunning to think Obsidian made New Vegas and this game until you realize almost no one responsible for NV is still there anymore. Then it all begins to make sense.

I'm surprised we're going to get a sequel, the game was so average and it wasn't talked about beyond the first week it came out.
>>
>>394948932
I find that the problem with persuasion is, well, UR is a combat focused game. That said, it's not entirely useless but it isn't revolutionary either.
Mercantile might also be vastly superior if you're crafting early, not quite sure about it as I haven't tried it.

>>
>>394681465
You've probably started a game by now but my 2 cents:
>Oddity
You'll be under-leveled, and as a new player the game is already going to be hard enough. Oddities are still in the game on classic, they just give smaller XP bumps. Still, its not like you're missing out on the cool lore moments by finding them by not using oddity.
>Classic
You'll level up faster than on oddity. Just to give you an idea, on oddity I got to Depot A (happens roughly 4 hours into the game and is notorious for filtering noobs) at level 8 and on classic I was like level 10 or so. Classic is just "easier" because you'll be more leveled for certain areas.

Why don't more CRPGs invest in releasing to the massive mobile market as well? I could see something like UnderRail playing quite well on modern phones.
Few exceptions aside, these games typically don't require strong hardware, and they're mechanically slow games too.

I'm looking for alternatives to (oldschool) Runescape. Current Oldschool is pozzed, newscape is terrible. I'm kinda looking for what's more or less a visualized text adventure game (this is what runescape is in its core for me). The more soul the better.

I tried it already. It starts off nice, but you quickly find out the combat is incredibly boring spamming the same ability over and over. Stat changes/leveling seems completely impactless.

Prose is a form of written or spoken language that typically exhibits a natural flow of speech and grammatical structure. A related narrative device is the stream of consciousness, which also flows naturally but is not concerned with syntax. The word "prose" first appears in English in the 14th century. It is derived from the Old French prose, which in turn originates in the Latin expression prosa oratio (literally, straightforward or direct speech). Works of philosophy, history, economics, etc., journalism, and most fiction (an exception is the verse novel), are examples of works written in prose. It differs from most traditional poetry, where the form has a regular structure, consisting of verse based on metre and rhyme. However, developments in twentieth century literature, including free verse, concrete poetry, and prose poetry, have led to the idea of poetry and prose as two ends on a spectrum rather than firmly distinct from each other. The American poet T. S. Eliot noted, whereas "the distinction between verse and prose is clear, the distinction between poetry and prose is obscure."
Purple Prose Part 1
"In literary criticism, purple prose is overly ornate prose text that may disrupt a narrative flow by drawing undesirable attention to its own extravagant style of writing, thereby diminishing the appreciation of the prose overall.[1] Purple prose is characterized by the excessive use of adjectives, adverbs, and metaphors. When it is limited to certain passages, they may be termed purple patches or purple passages, standing out from the rest of the work."
>>
>>395041856
Purple Prose Part 2
"Purple prose is criticized for desaturating the meaning in an author's text by overusing melodramatic and fanciful descriptions. As there is no precise rule or absolute definition of what constitutes purple prose, deciding if a text, passage, or complete work has fallen victim is a somewhat subjective decision. According to Paul West, "It takes a certain amount of sass to speak up for prose that's rich, succulent and full of novelty. Purple is immoral, undemocratic and insincere; at best artsy, at worst the exterminating angel of depravity."

The map is huge, but here is some advice: Things off of the beaten path are off of the beaten path for a reason. IE: There is nothing there. If you find yourself wondering through darkness and you're not seeing anything that looks like the devs put it there to draw your eye or stick-out, just know you're about 5 steps from getting paralyzed by a giant bug and having your guts sucked out like a soup.

By the way, you can still avoid combat on classic. Often times on classic you'll be overleveled anyway by the mid-late game. On oddity it is usually the opposite.

Is Illusionist that much better for Fighter/Mage Multi? If I could have just picked Half Orc or Human I would, but my other options were *lf and half-*lf, so I was bound to feel lame no matter what
Also, what's a good playstyle for fighter mage? Dual wield? Or sword and board?

If you AVOID combat on classic you'll probably be about the same level as oddity, maybe a bit higher
Since combat is fucking everywhere in the game, and you still get xp from oddities and quests and so on, you get a lot of slack in classic, on oddity you really don't
>>
I have decided to play on classic, thank you for your input anons
>>
>>395136352
People recommend going on Oddity at least once, but I really disagree
The game is hard enough without being underleveled as you'd likely be in oddity
Be a bit careful with your build, it's not uncommon to realize you made a complete garbage character that can't clear the game, and reset. There's no respec in Underrail.
That being said, godspeed and good luck, it's a flawed but great game

Forums are really good for finding a build. I don't recommend using anything else external though, the game is best experienced rather than spoon-fed.

Tin-can AR is the tried and true CRPG noob build. It isn't flashy, it is very straightforward. It's also very effective. I had no issues at all at Depot A (the notorious noob filter) with this build.

If you wanna do stealth, crit crossbow and traps build is fun. You'll hit like a fucking nuke sometimes. Heavy armored enemies can be an issue, but that is where traps come into play. I liked this build, it does make combat take a little while though since you depend on preparing killzones with traps.

You can always do psi if you're a tranny.

>>
>>395135038
>What did they mean by this?
It's a contextual clue for the player to divide the magazines in groups of three in order to understand their divining meaning.

The first batch: Mayday, Dead Bird and Doggies, serves as a warning (Mayday) that the loss of freedom (Dead Bird) will turn people into rabid (Doggies). E.g. covid.
The second couldn't be any more obvious: Corporate (Greed) exponentially leads to (Slums in downtown areas) and by extension (Pain & Suffering). E.g. any downtown area.
Third: Men will turn obsessed with physiognomy (Chin) hoping to please the modern women (Whales) in the west (Troika [Trilateral Commission]). E.g. just look around.
And finally the fourth: Joe Biden's son is planted in Ukraine (Worm) in order to destabilize the region which in turn creates an (Energy) and fuel (Super Punks) crisis.
>>
>>395137313
Ah, then you're probably good to go
Underrail is autistic with builds but doesn't have nearly as many pitfalls as pathfinder
Just don't be a generalist and you'll be fine
>>
>>395137313
Eh, if you've played a CRPG before you can shoot from the hip.

The only real thing you need to know is throwing is a mandatory investment unless you're going stealth or pure psi. I seriously don't think you can beat this game without some form of crowd control.

>am I likely to want to replay what is available
Depends on how much you like the characters and how much you like the different paths you can take. The gameplay between different classes isn't anything spectacular, but with romances, siding with the goblins or siding with the druids, etc being a thing there's plenty to experience provided you want to experience the other options at all (I for example do not want to ever side with the goblins, so that option offers no replayability for me).

That's all fine and dandy, nonetheless the original point still stands.

No. The game is tailored for Oddity, not the other way around.
>>
>>395170873
And my point is that even with the penalty I still have more XP than I'd have in Oddity. It doesn't matter what was tailored for what, it doesn't change the results
By picking Oddity, you're effectively picking a difficulty because you don't trust you won't murder everything for the sake of XP, and for that you trade having less XP to work with even if you limit yourself in Classic

I don't give a fuck what Weird West fags say 1st person is mandatory to be an "Immersive Sim" the name is stupid enough because all Sim's by nature are designed to be immersive therefore what makes a game an immersive sim is that it's first person inhabiting an actual person (as opposed to a machine as in Mechwarrior or Plane Simulator). that puts more of a focus on being immersed in the world than usual/expected

It's a work around to your if statement. Suspend disables or enables all or selected hotkeys and hotstrings.
Essentially, it suspends the script until you press the key again.

Can't think of an easier to dick around with premise than "ultra post post post post capitalism" or a more in demand game than "please just do New Vegas again" only to just half ass both aspects. The starting planet is very over the top and sets a fun enough tone for the setting while providing a decently populated (albeit small) map to explore then it just stops doing that. The second you leave that starting zone the fucked up capitalism shit gets cranked down like 60% for the most part but it's not in favor of telling some nuanced story or exploring some other concepts in the sci fi genre so the entire setting feels watered down to shit until you make your way to Byzantium. Groundbreaker turns into some weird Deus Ex multilayered multiaproach toybox then you're right back to shitty maps that are smaller than the starting zone with no tradeoff of "being smaller overall lets the entire thing feel more handcrafted" then the game ends after sort of spacing out for ten hours because there's not a lot of quests or dialogue and what's there feels more like a shooter than an rpg (not in terms of quality just in terms of overall them even wanting you to give a fuck).

My experience with Outer Worlds can be summarized as "land on Edgewater and listen to a guy explain that if your neighbor dies you're forced to pay for his grave which is funny and sad and outlandish and a good tone setter, completely turn off your brain because the game has nothing to say about anything for the next dozen or so hours, then end up in Byzantium in which the first thing that happens is [you get thrown into the poor person incinerator]".

>>395136057
Anon, eventually you will mercilessly fuck shit up as a fighter/mage regardless of whether you have illusionist in there. Illusionist is mainly a suggestion for people going on solo runs with SCS II and Ascension installed. If you want to be an elf or half-elf then go for it, if you want to be a human then go for that (the main downside being that dual class won't be able to start dipping into mage until the start of SoD/BG2, eventually though it's incredibly strong if you started out as a kensai or berserker). Weapon wise dual wield will end up being strongest, but in BG1 you can just choose long swords and a ranged weapon, just throw a shield in your hand if you really feel you need it early on (can help in the very early levels). Dual wield can come later.
>>
How does Baldur's Gate 2 fare against the first?
>>
>>395351674
Even on SCS Tactical difficulty? In the end I decided to dual-class solely because I didn't want to pick any of the other races
>>
>>395351692
worse
>>
>>395352038
How come?
>>
>>395351692
BG2 is objectively an overall better game, but it is also different.
It's in those differences where you delineate which one you'll prefer. For me, it's BG1.
>>
>>395351874
>Even on SCS Tactical difficulty?
Yes, although with dual class it's kinda rough if you go kensai initially because AC is far more important in BG1. If you're a regular fighter or berserker though you'll be fine in BG1, you'll just be playing a regular fighter through it though. If you're doing a full trilogy with or without SoD you'll end up being pretty top tier. Assuming you're going to dual class out of fighter 9 rather than 13, then you make the necessary XP in BG2 pretty early on. I think it's possible to make your dual class XP in SoD too but I can't remember.
>>
>>395352706
What does 2 do that you dislike?
>>
>>395352904
Yeah I'm rolling Berserker and will go Mage on lv9
I gotta admit I'm having a rough time finding motherfucking mages to join my crew, only found Xzar so far and he's not even a good specialization imo, I'm starting to think I might have to Dual Class Imoen to mage
Any good (as in the alignment) or neutral mage that I can get early?
>>
>>395353116
I usually just swing to Nashkel and get Edwin unless I really want to run with Monty and Xzar. If you don't want to keep Edwin around then you can just use him to help you get Dynaheir along with Minsc, who isn't the best but I've used her for an SCS run before. She's good enough for BG1 at least and her slow poison ability is pretty useful sometimes. You have to take Minsc along though unless you cheese it (kill Minsc while he's in your party, then reform your party and remove him while he's still dead, this will allow you to keep Dynaheir without having to use Minsc). There's also Neera in Beregost if you're using EE.

>>395352916
If you played both you know the differences, they're quite clear.

>>395352490
Railroading, little to absolutely no role-playing to speak of, the story is actually super barebones, and Amn sucks.
>>
>>395352490
More railroading is the main one for me. You're just following the story beats rather than having the option to explore around more before hitting said beats like in BG1. I guess you can explore Amn a bit, but that sorta sucks once you've done it a couple of times. I've replayed BG1 countless times because after you're kicked out of Candlekeep you can easily wrack up tons of hours just doing other shit and not even bothering with Nashkel mines. The main things I dislike about BG1 are the lack of inter party banter and I still to this day hate that Baldur's Gate itself is locked off until Chapter 5.

>>395368618

>>395368618
Changes it quite significantly I'd say, consistently makes it harder, although usually in a cool way
Like, even the tutorial assassin fights get harder, since they get the assassin kit
It gives mages better spells and better AI, buffs healing, removes +1 items
In general it just improves AI, improves the spells some mages have, and sometimes changes enemy placement
Bear in mind most of it is modular and you can just pick and choose

Oddity would've been cool strictly as a bonus modifier to dominating games. You're typically going to be under-leveled on oddity, and Underrail is already notorious for filtering newfriends. I have never understood people recommending oddity for a first time player, especially if they disclose they're new to CRPGs or have only played extremally laid back ones. Classic you'll typically be 2-3 levels higher than on oddity at any given time past Junkyard. Shiiiet, to be honest with you I just did a classic run and I leveled up at Junkyard alone 2 times. I got there at level 8 and left halfway to level 11.

The first one really bored me for years until I had more context about the actual setting, which didn't come until after Deadfire. I wish they gave you more context in the first game when making a character, having no idea what half the backgrounds or classes meant dissuaded me for a long time and its not like they had an established setting already like Forgotten Realms. Nowadays its one of my favourite series, though I also really like Deadfire and the privateer setting

Not sure, a map to select your origin place would have been a good start so I knew where things like Aedyr and Old Vailia actually were compared to the settings of the game, maybe have a more fleshed out encyclopedia type page that pops up explaining more backstory/culture of the various nations and classes when you click a button to expand the tooltip

Well, the premise of the game is that a bunch of Christians got sick of Earth and decided to fuck off into space. Probably too many trannies and pedophilia.

A bad mutiny (they fucked literally everything up and are effectively space commies) happened and threw the community onboard into chaos. Everyone is usually some degree of religious, but the Church itself isn't portrayed as corrupt seeing as how they're the only ones who haven't gone completely fucking out there, granted I still like the fascist authoritarians in face of the alternative.

Alright, so Regen stim mutation injection gives you 1 HP a turn, 5 extra HP on first mutation, and 1 Nat DR on second.

Super Soldier Gives you 5 reaction on injection, another 5 to add up to 10 and 5% chance to crit, and finally 1 extra AP

one turned her on ranger difficulty
smg custom charater pdw with a +8 damage barrel with a flaming chainsword scotchmo on crit drugs in her face fucking ripped through her health lol

suck on it dyke
>>
>>395643569
also i rate the game 8/10. lets you feel overpowered, some really fun quests, some not so funny dialog but a few lines that did make me laugh and a pretty good main quest
should i try wasteland 1 remastered or 2 next?
>>
>>395644028
Unless you've already played FO1/2/Tactics and are desperate for more post apoc I wouldn't strongly recommend either, but if you unironically liked Wasteland 3 you'll probably like Wasteland 2.
>>
>>395588897
>warcrimes
no such thing
>>
>>395644737
Played all 3, didnt finish tactics
Tactics is lame, it feels too weird in both turn based and realtime
2 goes on too long and its main quest is weak Everythinoverstays its welcome. its pretty good overall though if you judt like to side quest it up in the few towns
1 is already my favorite crpg all time but its really not thst repayable compared to 2
And i really did enjoy wasteland 3, did you not?
>>
>>395645939
The kindest thing I can say about Wasteland 3 is that most of the combat was fun. I didn't appreciate the quest design, I despised almost every single character, and the ending felt rushed and didn't resolve much of anything. I consider it a competently made tactics game but a terrible RPG.

You don't aim for one, that's why you're not given the option at character creation.

>>395663776

Of course they do. You make your choice according to the situation and those options shift your alignment.

>>395664449
im just wondering doing evil things like threatening and possibly killing/robbing certain npcs will hinder roleplay

>>395664623
How would those actions hinder roleplay if it's the role you chose to pursue?
>>
>>395664623
If you mean hinder the full knowledge of all the moving parts that make the story, few exceptions aside, the game is slanted towards good characters.

I'm guessing its your first Infinity engine game and your problem wasn't so much that you didn't understand what the npcs were telling you but maybe that you can't recognize the exits maybe? holding down TAB will highlight interactable objects such as doors, stairs, containers and npcs. Only on EE though. You'll get used to it, I had this problem too first time I played an IE game.

Classic RPGs with a good story and possibly pleasant combat, but the most important thing I'd say is having an interesting world and being well written

Play Arcanum.
>>
>>395704761
theres an IWD NPC mod which is okay, but not sure you'd like it any more than BG
>>
>>395705758
From trying BG1 it's the writing that's bothering me more than anything, it just feels kinda soulless and generic, but I think it might just be my preference
I usually gravitate towards grimdark shit (partly why I found planescape attractive) and BG1 is just not it for me

>>395705659
Oh shit yeah, another game I wrote off because of its looks, but now my tolerance to older games improved a lot, I'll add it to the list. Thanks anon.

So far I'll either look for a build for Pillars and start that or if I don't find one I'm satisfied with I'll go Arcarum
>>
Man, I had forgotten how comfy this game can be.
>>395706097
BG2 has a lot more personality in its writing compared to its predecessor imo. The main narrative is more focused, the companions aren't cardboard cutouts, the sidequests are more interesting and the places you'll visit feel a lot less like generic fantasy europe. That being said, it's no Planescape.

Class: Cipher
Race: Wood Elf
Background: The living lands - Colonist
Stats:

Con: 9
Dex: 10
Per: 18
Int: 18
Res: 3

Talents:
Biting Whip

the rest are whatever

Spells that you need to prioritize
Lvl1: Whisper of Treason, Eyestrike, Antipathetic Field
lvl 2: Mental Binding, Psychovampiric Shield, Phantom Foes
lvl 3: Puppet Master, Soul Ignition
lvl 4: doesnt matter but I like Pain Block
lvl 5: doesnt really matter
lvl 6: doesnt really matter
lvl 7: Time Parasite
lvl 8: Defensive Mindweb and Reaping Knives

Ideally you'll want to use a bow and and arbalest. The weapon you want to aim for is Stormcaller (it's in the DLC)
>>
>>395713831
also if it's your first playthrough you shouldn't really play POTD unless you want your asshole to be ripped apart.

I played Baldur's Gate, what could possibly go wrong haha...
I found this build, if you'd like to compare it to yours https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=871584933

Also I've seen Whispers not recommended due to low resolve, which means you're prone to interruptions, did you ever have that issue?

I've played on POTD already up to the point where we get the fort, and while it got tough sometimes it was never something unmanageable, I am 70% sure I also picked Cipher that time

the only thing i dislike about pillars 2 is the amount of lesbians. like i don't think you understand how many there are in that game if you never played it. i wouldn't say hurr durr everyone is gay because they are specifically girl on girl and its not hot girl on girl. its supposed to be take this serious and usually a ugly dyke girl on girl or dyke on dyke.
is this the final stage of pandering?
pandering to the most acceptable form of gayness? go to the big town. first building i enter
little furry munchin mentions how much she enjoys eating pussy
go up a screen. quest is about retrieving a slab. mentions the other girl that wants it shes fighting with is her ex.
xoti is into girl on girl more than man on girl
its bizarre anons.
also obviously its world a little bit boring like the first game, dialog is still really long winded with no charm, and unlike the first game its mainquest sucks dick
ship combat which apparently took a lot of resources and time to make is complete ass and they shouldn't have even bothered with it.

but other than that. a few of the companions are alright, the combat is tight
tons of build opportunity that really lets you break the game if you know what your doing with a multiclass character. some fun side quests here and their scatter with fantastic juicy gear to find that genuinely gets me excited. since the game is so unpopular you are Truley on your own playing it. good fucking luck finding information on how to finish a side quest in a dlc. its a weird experience to have with a modern game but i had it and it was neat. speaking of the dlc all around are pretty solid and better than the base game
>>
>>395715458
>which means you're prone to interruptions,
Not a problem since uou shouldn't be getting hit in the first place. You're a DPS caster that stays behind the big bois and controls the battlefield with his spells. Whisper of treason is your strongest spell since:
-it makes enemies kill each other which means it's both a defensive and an offensive tool
-you can use it to get people away from your backline
-it costs nothing
>>
>>395728928
PoE2 is just kinda pozzed in general, which is a damn shame
Like you said the combat is very nice, and the "gamefeel" improved a ridiculous amount from PoE1, and multiclass is fun as a motherfucker
Mechanically it's one of my favorite CRPGs, reminding me of a more polished Baldur's Gate, but I find most characters grating and the lore/worldbuilding/writing seems much worse than it was in PoE1, which is just goddamn tragic

lol that hour long seethe gdq with josh sawyer just bitching that the only reason divinty 2 was far more successful was because it was turn based so they patched one into their game with zero changes to the trillion trash fights in that game.
divinty 2 only works because theirs very few fights and none of them are trash fights. act 2 can easily take 50 hours on a first time playthrough but theirs only like 20-30 fights in that whole act? but each are memorable and different

The armour system and itemization ruin that game for me.

Avowed could be interesting depending on how they translate some of the POE spells and abilities to a skyrim clone
Concerned by hearing absolutely nothing about it however and Pentiment and Outer Worlds 2 are making me doubt Obsidian will release anything worth playing at all in the foreseeable future
>>
>>395743847
How? Sounds like you accidentally made a non-viable character build.
>>
>>395743847
>armor system
its not too bad. it only becomes an issue if you run 1 character doing solo damage and 3 doing the other. it either needs to be 2/2 or 4 for a single for the game to go super smoothly but its still possible to do whatever. its a pretty freeform game with tons of ways to breaking the difficulty with some creativity. enemies usually only have 1 high armor for phyiscal or magical but rarely both so having coverage lets you clean though them quickly.
> itemization
i agree. it doesn't ruin it but when i said act 2 can easily take 50 hours a good 10 hours of that is vendoring things to buy a whole new set of gear almost every level for all 4 charaters.


but i love the world, a lot of the charaters, it has a good sense of humor without running it into the ground, fantastic OST, and the moment to moment to gameplay is good and the confrontation with lucian at the end is a top 5 moment in gaming for me. also also i really want to fuck Sebille
great game will probably play though it again after bg3 releases and i playthough that.

I will never forget Sawyer for pushing obsidian to make PoE II instead we could have had tyranny sequel or a prequel

Can't blame him
POE 1 was actually well liked. yeah, there was bitching that its writing went on too long and wasn't interesting, but it least sold well and had buzz around it.
nobody played Tyranny or cared
so when your making the business decision on which one to make a sequel of its pretty obvious but honestly i prefer it this way. Tyranny kind of works as a one off adventure more than anything.
obsidian has been in damage control since Pillars 2 so i doubt they will even have time to do Tyranny 2 at this point.

Don't worry, you're not missing anything. It doesn't even scratch the same itch as new vegas (or beth games in general) because the writing is so on the nose and the world is so fucking small. I played it once and completely forgot about it.

>>395747390
that's not a hard bar to really cross. fallout 4 is the ultimate retard test. its a nothing game with less substance than your average call of duty. least in call of duty you can play with friends and clearly improve at that game.
fallout 4 is designed to just waste away hours of your life.

I found Fallout 4 a little more tolerable when in addition to mods I roleplayed as a junkie wastelander coming off a huge drug binge, and all that pre-war, looking for my kid stuff was just a big acid trip. Made it a lot more fun to just wander around doing shit
Seriously that main plot kills the vibe for the main gameplay setup

i had hoped for a "we heard your complaints" kind of thing but instead the trailer looks like a mix between usual E3 pre-rendered stuff and NINTENDO HIRE THIS MAN
i can kinda see what they were going for with showing the npcs doing stuff, unless i'm just reading too much into it

Is BG2 better then 1? I'm not really enjoying 1
>>
>>395793684
yes but you probably won't enjoy it either then
>>
>>395793684
Depends on what your issue with it is. The writing gets better, the gameplay does not.
>>
How much content does BG3 have so far?
>>
>>395796572
like the first half of act 1, it's not that much. I'd wait if you're wanting to play it.
>>
>>395797294
That's it? Is there a roadmap of how many acts there are planned?
>>
>>395797516
I think they said 5 and I also think they're saving Half Orc and Dragonborn for release. They've been awfully fucking quiet though.

>>
>>395793684
it is. low level adventures is a meme, kobolds and gnolls get old really fast. bg1 writing overall is pretty basic as a whole, no party banter/romance which is probably baulders gate biggest legacy is only in 2
you probably won't enjoy 2 without context from the first game though. its not a direct DIRECT sequel but its definitionally still a sequel if you know what i mean
>>
>>395798984
i got like 60 hours of adventure out of a single act from early access, 3 acts is enough.
divinity 2 2nd act lasted like a whole crpg in length by itself
>>
>>395797516
3 acts, but act 1 is like 60 hours long, 20 if you speed run it

Holy shit Pathfinder Kingmaker just immediately falls apart and becomes awful the moment you complete the chapter with Vordakai.

I played through once before and don't remember it being this bad, I barely want to keep playing even.
>>
>>395802769
Forgot to add but one thing that fucking kills the game more than anything else on replaying it is how absurd a time investment Kingmaker is, and in the worst way possible. If a quarter of the filler areas+the most tedious and useless parts of Kingdom Management got stripped away you could unironically cut the gametime from 100 to 50 hours probably.
>>
>>395803146
They put so much thematic focus on kingdom management, but setting kingdom management to auto might be the optimal way to experience the game.
>>
>>395803595
They did it right in Wrath, the Crusade management keeps all the good (infrequent yet interesting dilemmas, advisor meetings where you need to make choices) while trimming literally everything else that was pointless. Even with the crusade battles Wrath is still only like 40-60 hours long which is insane to me.

I've been told that this game isn't good to play with a guide, but man sometimes I can't help but feel you need one. Killing the beast was so fucking annoying, there were so many little intricacies and shit you had to do "just so" and in a specific order, and it really doesn't tell you. I walked around forever until finally I figured out about repairing the furnace. Also fucking hated walking ALLLLL the way back to grab the SGS guys a sample from the monsters. Fuck this quest.

>Wrath is still only like 40-60 hours long
Maybe I just did way too much fucking around but my 2.5 playthroughs (without the paid DLCs) clocked in at 220 hours.

Hows pathfinder kingmaker? I played wotr first and didnt mind it, should I give kingmaker a shot?
>>
>>395805625
It is in most all ways a lesser game than wotr, and very very clearly rushed and prototypical for their future games. There is absolutely interesting stuff in Kingmaker but you have to basically fight through some horrible design choices to get to it.
>>
>>395805625
Take Blind Fight. On every single character. No exceptions.
>>
>>395805625
The final two acts of the game are legendarily and among those who actually suffered through them and didn't quit near objectively considered to be perhaps the worst, most poorly designed content every put in a CRPG, and definitely up there in video games in general.

You're a good neighbor. We all go through periods of darkness. In such times, we can turn to the Lord, but it's good to have friends.

Though can save getting Blind Fight until the final act, but yes it is an absolute must for the late game

What game is that?

Colony Ship. from the Age of Decadence guys. Still in Early Access

Eh, at least they left the leitmotif intact. That's always something.

So, do you guys know any portrait packs for ToEE? Or how to create your own portraits at least? I always wanted to give the game a go, but then I reminded myself "oh, yeah, that game has really lame portraits" and I use interest in it. I guess I am autistic.

About to start a new DOS2 run with Epic Encounters - is it worth installing the addons ("Epip Encounters" and "Derpy's EE2 Tweaks/Artifact Tiers")?

>setting kingdom management to auto might be the optimal way to experience the game
Thus invalidating the entire point of the game. Why even play Kingmaker then, and not any of the dozen of other CRPGs released in the last 10 years?
>>
>>395830352
Because the Dungeons are actually quite nice.
Same with WotR. Campaign management is so retarded and bad, it kills all the fun. So set it to auto and you can focus on the actually good parts of the game, like the Dungeons and the stories of the npcs.
>>
>>395804607
>>395804143
With only 40-60 hours you either know exactly what to do (in terms of quests, locations and character builds), or you play on extremely easy and/or skip many sidequests and locations.
I'm playing it for the first time now, and i'm somewhere mid-chapter 3, and i'm at 60 hours already.

kingdom management is fun on the lowest (not auto)setting
