Fuck off pipeworker, nobody is forcing you to play on dominating and it is nearly impossible to make a non-tchort-viable build in normal.
Curbing build potential in any direction is straight up anti-fun.

>Curbing build potential in any direction is straight up anti-fun.
I disagree, there are some good ways. One is to design enemies and areas such that certain highly specialized builds will have trouble with them - just like how it already is. Psi beetles, robots and maybe serpents to some extent are the only real issues for some builds though.

Can somebody explain to me how the range for the fog of war works?
Looks like my max see range is 14 tiles.
But enemies can hit me waaaay outside this range.
My main gun is a sniper rifle with 20 tiles max range, yet I can't use that much.
So what gives? How can I extend it to something that crossbow or sniper enemies use?

My point is that I don't need like fifteen different explanations on "roman larpers le bad m'kay" before the game has even gotten to the point of introducing the faction. When I meet a group of raiders, I can tell they're bad from what they do. They kill people, mutilate them, and get hopped up on chems. Hell, even the powder gangers have a better introduction than the Legion. Your first interaction with them is from Joe Cobb threatening a townsfolk. You are shown what the powder gangers are, not told.

But I played Fallout 4 before it and Fallout 3 right after, so after the bethesdautism and their inability to write good stories in the fallout universe anything would have looked good.
Similar thing happened to me when I played Skyrim almost right after Dragon Age 2 which is why I like Skyrim way more than it deserves to this day.

but seriously fucking hell Vault 34's a pain in the ass, especially with how Veronica and ED-E seem to wander off and won't stand still and it spawns more glowing ones behind you if you go round a corner fuck offff

Daggerfall requires a lot of effort on the player to enjoy. A lot of suspension of disbelief. But if you allow yourself to be fooled, it is actually a very fun game. Even though every quest and city is procedurally generated, after you've been playing for a while you kind of allow the illusion that every location is unique to grow on you. You get a sense of scale and realism that no other RPG offers.

I remember Zaric saying that every region in Daggerfall felt unique to him. I thought this was nonsense. How could a region feel unique when it uses the exact same generation algorithm as every other generic region in the game? I didn't understand this until I properly played Daggerfall and gave it a chance rather than dismissing it as procedurally generated garbage like I had done before. For example, over time you remember certain town layouts, you find a city with all the right services that your character requires in the one place, or you grow fond of a city that you've done a lot of quests in. And after a while of helping people out you see your reputation in a region has grown, it feels good that your actions in this world actually mean something.

Daggerfall definitely has something that no other RPG I've played has. A sense of immersion that you really are just an itinerant adventurer living in a fantasy world. Even though it's from 1996 it feels surprisingly modern in the amount of freedom it gives you.

Of course, the Unity version and shit ton of mods help a lot too. There are a lot of quest and world overhaul mods so the game doesn't feel so samey all the time.

I didn't have a pc until 1996 so I don't really know. The unity version fixes everything and I cant imagine playing the original at all unless I was really desperate and ran out of other games. All these buildings and NPCs were computer generated, and you'll eventually notice that all towns are the same, but they're rotated to a different angle sometimes. There's only a handful of NPCs that don't have randomly generated names.

>Edwin and Viconia are also easier to recruit than Xan and Branwen
Edwin, yes, but none of the other three are directly on the path of the main quest. Xan is closest, then Branwen, and Viconia is easily missable.
>>
>>2938706
Branwen isn't on the path of the main quest, at no point do you need to go to Nashkel Carnival. And then you need to talk to the halfling, and get his scroll (or have one on you), then use it. It makes sense with game logic but its not the easiest thing in the world to stumble on. And for Xan, I KNOW there are people who go fight Mulahey and never see him in his cave because they don't bother looking.

Viconia is harder to find than Edwin sure but she's also easy to just stumble across since shes on the side of the map you arrive on, and she initiates dialogue with the party when seen.

In terms of design there really isn't much of a difference between them. The shading and outlines are pretty much identical.

>>2938924
The image you've posted is very much characteristic of the late 15th century. Whether this already counts as Early Modern depends on where you draw the line. I would rather classify this as late medieval or Renaissance. And while you could still find art in the early 16th century resembling earlier styles it was not characteristic to the period.
I'm not even saying the game is bad, I'm merely saying that when it comes to historical accuracy the game is lacking - especially when that particular aspect was so hyped by marketing. I could name multiple things, from the architecture, to the representation of saints, the problematic intermixture of facts with fiction, equipment of the soldiers represented in the game, etc.

I feel really bad for the Huana because understanding the lore shows that they got absolutely screwed over by Thaos and the other Engwithans back in the day. While it does suck that supporting them does make you complicit in their caste system, I think returning Ukaizo to them is the most moral faction choice you can make.

They were always black Italians. One could argue that their culture is a mixture of Italy and America.
>>2939190
The world-building in PoE is anything but lazy. If anything, it's quite rich and detailed compared to most fantasy rpgs. I would agree that it's "amercanized" in a sense that a lot of the cultures and history takes heavy inspiration from America, like the Eastern Reach.

Some of it is nostalgia. If you go back and play some of those RPGs they have clunky animations, horrible random encounter issues and generally slower responses from the game where I need to use an emulator to fast forward through a bunch of it. That said, it was an era of experimentation and it wasn't totally trying to be a huge spectacle like some series have become. Its too bad FF stopped being a fun series as well as looking good which forces me to look for other games to enjoy.

Henry Ford once said, "If I had given the people what they had asked for, they only would have gotten faster horses" and that pretty much sums up my opinion of Final Fantasy 9. They tried too hard to please their new FF7 fanbase of emo tards with the polarizing FF8 and in response to the backlash tried too hard to please their older fans by retreading older Final Fantasy tropes instead of forging new ones. As someone who had been playing FF since he was a kid and eagerly devoured each new one as it came out, all the while never needing to be pandered too, I ended up putting the game down because it didn't really give me anything that I hadn't already seen, and I lost interest. I felt 10 was a return to form in terms of striking a good balance between putting a fresh spin on tried and true Final Fantasy tropes while still managing to have surprises and unexpected twists.

Weirdly I could see how younger FF fans could enjoy experiencing these tropes for the first time with a more modern presentation and developing the same nostalgia that I have for, say, Final Fantasy 4, which is why I don't think it's a bad game, just too conservative and predictable for my tastes

Let's talk about Kingmaker companions. Tell me what you think about them, call me a faggot if you disagree with me or whatever

>Insultingly bad
These characters have a generic personality archetype attached to them and don't develop further than that at all trough out the game. Amiri is one of the most generic RPG characters I've ever seen. She's literally NOTHING but le strong womyn. That's her character. Tristian is just a cartoonishly good goodie goodie and Ekundayo is the blandest most boring character maybe ever. Wanna be lone wolf edge lord. His design is also so bland it hurts me to look at him.

>Bad
These characters suffer from the same exact problems as characters in the previous tier, they are just less generic. Valerie and Harrim could've been amazing characters if Owlcat could've actually SOMEWHAT enriched their personality. Harrim is a black pilled r9k faggot and Valerie is a spoiled brat. They never evolve past that, that's it. Regongar is a cuckold, a faggot and a half orc... What? At least he's not as generic I guess...

>Okay / Decent / Tolerable
I don't have much to say about these.Octavia is your average goofy college girl slut, at least her personality is believable. *shrugs*
I never played with the DLC twins, NokNok is a comical relief.

>Good ones
These characters are unique, they have engaging personalities that somewhat develop through out the game. Jubilost is a prick who starts to appreciate you over time, and his attitude grows on you too. His puns are funny and again, his personality is not exaggerated, which is something I value. A lot of people hate Linzi, and I don't know why. I like everything about her, plus her ending is a good twist of things. Explains her ring too.
Jaethal is my favorite character not because of what she is, but because she could've been so much more. It wouldn't have been too hard to write either, her design is already very unique and well thought out. She's not cartoonishly evil, either.
