ED is the thing I'm most interested in, but going to wait until it's finished.

You're going to be waiting a long time for erectile dysfunction to be finished.

This is one of the most ridiculous non-issues to ever crop up. This is the very epitome of first world problems. What's next? Complaining about subversive racism because your cell phone doesn't come in your favorite color?

Wasn't there a sci-fi RPG by the same name? I thought it was that and got all excited but, no, it's fantasy.

Why can't we have a true Space Hulk game that's a revival of the original from 1993? That game was awesome for its time!

Why would anyone buy a Xiaomi smartphone?

Why would you buy any non-OEM hardware marketed by a Chinese manufacturer? It's like buying Huawei networking equipment and complaining you suddenly have breaches coming from Chinese IPs.

Has anyone actually played this game? How does it compare to SoSE or StarDrive?

How did you read that as dismissal?

This statement sounded very dismissive to me: "Dungeon master, Eye of the Beholder, Bards Tale, etc but they were "first person" dungeon crawlers and the SSI games were top down tactical."

To me, it came across that you were dismissing the very stellar Eye of the Beholder series by claiming that the only SSI games were top down tactical.

If you didn't mean it that way, then I apologize.

I loved them all, but they are not the same type of games. Dungeon master, Eye of the Beholder, Bards Tale, etc but they were "first person" dungeon crawlers and the SSI games were top down tactical.

Eye of the Beholder I, II and III were SSI games. EoB I and II were published by SSI while EoB III was directly developed by SSI.

I don't think it's fair to dismiss them out of hand when they were a very strong part of SSI's total portfolio.

I, too, fondly remember Pool of Radiance (or Poolrad which is what the default directory was called in DOS). However, for me, none of the gold box games hold a candle to the RPG that finally equalled the greatness of Dungeon Master on my old Atari ST. That game was Eye of the Beholder

I'd absolutely love to see a new Eye of the Beholder game. Legends of Grimrock is a great modern day game, and has a lot of the same vibe, but it isn't a Forgotten Realms game.

Oh, Sierra, how I fondly remember you. Thanks in part to Sierra, I had a thriving piracy business as a kid. Ziplock baggies with floppies, Xeroxed manuals and functional copies of those code wheels they went to.

Watching a YouTube video is the dumbest way to judge if a game feels "right" to you or will work in your environment. It's like saying "Don't go test drive a car, just watch some random asshole on YouTube, who may or may not be an absolute shill, drive it and then decide if you want to stroll in to a dealership and write a check."

Sorry, no, and I have zero moral qualms about making sure that I don't get fucked as a consumer. Also, I frankly don't give a fuck about what is believed about my buying habits. I pirated Assassin's Creed: Black Flag and played it for about four hours before I realized that much time had passed. Absolutely loved being a pirate and the story. Bought it and every other Assassin's Creed game I could find on Steam. So, for Ubisoft, me pirating it led to me spending about $100 bucks on their products when otherwise I probably would not have spent any at all. What other people do with the material they pirate is not my concern nor will I accept the attempts of others to make it my concern. As I have already said, the games I like...I buy, if only out of self-interest in wanting to see more of those games. It's never in my best interest to not purchase games I like.

There's no need for piracy to know if a game is crap. But it's a nice attempt to justify piracy.

Bullshit. Keep fucking that high horse you're on.

And this is why I torrent games first. I do not trust reviews* to be independent and honest, demos are like finding hen's teeth and word of mouth isn't trustworthy, either. My criteria is simple; if I play it more than two hours and get enjoyment out of those two hours, I feel that I am morally obligated to purchase the game. Otherwise, I'll never see a continuation of the types of games I like. It's in my best interest to support studios that put out those kinds of games.

*There are exceptions, such as Out of Eight and Space Sim Central

Because it's the job of a society to protect the weakest... what kind of argument is "then don't use it" .. that can only come from someone with ZERO understanding of children. If that kinda logic would work on them the world would be a better place indeed....

Given that logic, we should outright ban all forms and places of communication because they have the potential to be used by a small group of people to harass other people.

You could say "But, Burrito, the very nature of being anonymous makes it more likely to be used to harass children than a different medium". With a small amount of planning and effort, ANY type of communication transmission device can be used anonymously. Christ, the kids that I mentor know about anonymizing proxies, Tor and Tails and they're 14 year old freshmen!
