How is asking for more and better being self-entitled? That's all there is in this world. That's a phrase that gets thrown around way too often and for the wrong reasons. Oh there are cases where it applies but this isn't one of them.

Yes. Entitlement is only if you are asking for something for free. With a commericial product it is called customer feedback, not entitlement.

And S.S. isn't entitlement we pay into that, as a lot of other things.

Welfare... now we are getting into entitlement areas.

I. FUCKING. HATE. THAT. NAME.

Why the fuck can't they call the first one "Divinity: Original Sin" and the second one "Divinity 2: Second Coming" or something? Dumb.

It's marketing, you capitalize on sales if the name is good. The name is in good standing. Hello?

But... but... but... piracy!

There was a an article about that, but we have to assume the majority of that 6 million is Ps4/XBone and well they have inherent DRM. Still the point is valid to a level certainly.

Does anyone know if the sequel is going to be multiplatform too? Be interesting to see if that's going to be a factor in development. I don't see anything on the Kickstarter but its a pretty long read so maybe I missed it.

It will be after, PC first even leaving Mac outside looking in. I believe ultimately it comes to all the same platforms and linux quicker than D:OS did. Sven answered this question for a Xbox One Kickstart lurker yesterday.

As for the endless debate of kickstarter or not, should they kickstart or not, EA or not... If you don't want to participate in it, no one is forcing you at all. But you can see from yesterday 1000's had no problem supporting and all the anti-kickstarters and their points in forms from here to Seattle have had zero affect on them making their own buying decisions. Lots of wasted typing breath.

Original Sin wasn't an innovative risk, its a turn based strategy RPG, not exactly the first of its kind and not even close to Larians first game. Maybe it was a risk but everything is a risk in the gaming industry,

They always talked about how their publisher wouldn't allow them to do a TB game due to risk of low sales. The biggest innovation was true TB Coop, very rare.

The game will be funded in a couple hours... I guess there are plenty happily waiting for this.

I'll give Funcom credit for the first time in a long time. They've stepped down from counting mmo $$$ before they are hatched and are aiming lower and perhaps to a game they can handle well.

DOS was decent, but by no means great. I'll be waiting on this for a deep discount.

Just because I'm interested: can you name pc game that is great in your opinion? A game released in the last decade?

I think he liked the witcha. We call him Mikey.

And sold.

Half way home already, not sure what the difference is between the $25 and $30 lemon pledge.

Big believer that the follow up gets a great chance to smooth out the warts of the first and in this case the first was pretty good.

Also looking forward to the EE version in a couple months.

ANYTHING that results in ANY form of legal action, as in, we step foot in a court room, pretty much gives me the ability to obtain (financials) what I want.

Not necessarily.

The saving/loading is because the game autosaves on map transitions, and does a shit job of it. Get IEMod and disable autosaves entirely.

I do use that, still could be much faster using other games as a benchmark. I haven't tried the patch to see if they did anything here.

Looks like tons of improvements here, be happy to check this out when I'm done with Dark Souls 2. I never had any noticeable problems with load times but I was running it on an SSD.

That had mixed results from reports at their forum. When I look at it, 2015, areas no bigger than BG loaded at once, darn loads should be optimized in various ways to be darn instant.

In my current game; saves load really fast for me 30 seconds or less. But I'm only 30 hrs in.

And that is like 25 seconds too long still.

But yeah, will get the update and try out the new stuff, it sounds like a winner and then get around to White March.

LOL at posts 6 & 8.

Derek comes out of the shadows after how many years?

First couple posts etc, seems in check. Maybe this is a new D.S.

Another handful of posts, nope seeming to be the same as it ever was.

Today, dude hasn't learned a damn thing over the past 10 years. He has a point, but then drives it home so far he losses it all... again.

World needs all types I suppose.

It's odd that they release this just after a massive discount. It had been 80% off, quite steep for a game that's only a year old. I might have bought it if I had known about this.

When it was on-sale if you went in the Steam Forums that was mentioned. Still odd that they wouldn't marry the two a bit more together.

The only reason it isn't a game-changer is because it is vaporware until it proves otherwise. Literally dozens of claims over the past 10 years of instant rechargeable etc etc and still nothing. Waits...
