For the life of me, I can't remember whether they'd said that backers got the first expansion free or not? Anyone remember?

You only get expansion at certain Backer levels.. so it's not free for backers, in fact that higher backer level was higher than normal and included ALL expansions afaik.

I am worried about this only being part 1 of an expansion. Piecemeal story and combat heavy expansion releases are worse than anything else.

I didnt like the game at all. I spent a great deal of time tracknig down all the green named NPCs, eager to see where their seemingly random stories would lead, and all I got was... nothing, because it was just a bunch of dumb fan-shit written by the kickstarter backers, and had nothing to do with anything worth a shit.

And then the story and everything else kind of went nowhere.


Good thing was that as Backer, I knew the green named things were irrelevant to the game. If can only imagine how horrible that must be to not know that and see them as part of the game. One of the worst design decisions in PoEt and it's not like people didn't tell Obsidian it was a bad idea....

But my annoyance comes more from the fact that when all is played and concluded, this game is just a lesser IWD2 with less character building, less proper story, worse way of telling the lore.. it is in all respects an lesser game. And I didn't KS to get a lesser game! Obsidian simply went through the motions of making a RPG, but failed to make anything worthwhile, unique or even interesting. That our supposed "curse" is so shittily done in-game as to offer literally NO danger whatsoever is just icing on the cake. Man compare this to BG2 and the "random uncontrolled transmutation to Baal in combat" which was a HUGE factor to play around. It's the small details that made me feel annoyed.

As I said before, when PoEt concluded, I replayed IWD2 + http://www.gibberlings3.net/iwd2npc/ .. hard to believe, but that was MORE fun.

Mhhh, lately I read a review that summed my feeling up perfectly. I liked Pillars of Eternity, but when I reached the end.. all I was was annoyed. Imo not a feeling one should have after finishing a game.

how is it looking at 1440p?
I was looking into getting a Fury but now it seems like going the 980Ti route is the better option.
I game at 1440p and plan to for the next 1-2 years before jumping to 4k once the gpu's can actually handle it nicely. 2016 at the earliest

GeForce GTX 980 Ti is 5% to 33% faster than Fury X at 1440p across various games. According to This

And I plan to upgrade in 1-2 years as well, to future proof my rig for VR... assuming I am compatible with that tech and don't get sick instantly ;p

Btw, all cards are miles away from the 95 fps limit for VR....

That article about the town is an interesting read on what happens when "immigrants" in local rural areas become self-centered assholes, and then wonder nobody likes them.

That's aside the fact that I haven't yet met someone who claims he is "electro sensitive" that was not plain totally insane. Only thing I can understand is neon and halogen light, but not because of EF, but because of the buzzing. These lamps produce a very annoying sound that can carry for quite a distance. Same thing with wind energy plants, those huge ass rotors produce insanely annoying mixed frequency noises that you can hear when you stand underneath them and when the wind carries them to you. Which is why I laugh when someone tells me they want to build a wind-farm on their land. They'll not live there for long willingly....

Half-naked people sitting in front of their "gaming rig" make up an extremely small proportion of the population. If those are the people who are supposed to be driving VR, Spector's point seems even more valid.

Btw, you completely missed the joke. To run 2nd generation 4K VR you gonna need an extremely beefy gaming rig so "rest of population" doesn't even matter. The amount of people that can even run a normal 1080p or 1440p VR unit at 100% steady 95 fps is completely minuscule.

Everything decides in 2016, when Nvidia brings out the first actual VR ready GPU, and the competitors in the VR space all released working Hardware to the market. Until then nobody can say what will happen.

That's cute and all, but I am not buying this until all 72 DLC's and 3 season passes and bugfixes for 51 game breaking issues are released and included in the purchase

Yeah, BF4 is now great.. 2 fucking years after release remember that when you see a MP shooter from Dice (and when you like BF4, always look at Hardline to see how badly EA can fuck up a winning formula)

I totally forgot about that! Thanks for the reminder. I really like how Valve does unique/fun stuff, even if some of their experiments go a bit awry.

Yeah they did some pretty crazy stuff... And that Potato thing was really their hands down most fancy event. Nothing after topped that

http://steamtreasurehunt.wikia.com/wiki/Potato_Fools_Day_ARG

(Ah, so it was 13 games and 36 achievements ,p) And getting some of those was a MAJOR pain. Specifically this one -> "Simply have Razer hardware." which actually required you to get some razer.dll injection thing someone coded while the event ran that made the game think you had Razer hardware.. haha

I wear the golden potato badge with pride ^^ The sales in 2011/2012 were generally pretty damn awesome, summer camp and xmas related events all had other achievement hunts too. Played tons of games I had in backlog due to this. ^^

Naah bro they're just sitting naked so they can feel the heat lamps they setup for proper sun simulation when they step outside in VR.

Imagine an array with heat lamps and fans and such to simulate sunshine/heat and air movement/wind in VR. A VR setup with war thunder I saw recently in an article made me think of this. They had a mounted fan they would turn on when players were flying in one of the open-cockpit planes. Small touch but adds a good deal of immersion.. but imagine that with a software api to integrate such functions into a simulation game with variable levels automatically adjusted by the game in realtime. So many new interactive experiences will be possible soon, it's really exciting.

Exactly The point is not how people look or if they shut themselves off, the point is that with VR they will be able to experience things they might otherwise not want to expose themselves to in the real world. Or that are too expensive to experience (I hear that VR demo space/game/sim where you exit from a space-station to do an EVA is absolutely mind-blowing). Or flat out too dangerous (being in a car chase, ww2 tank or fighter or submarine etc...)

VR creates entirely new media possibilities and how you look is completely irrelevant in that respect. Warren even sort of admits he never even tried *any* VR. (even Hololens is impressive as it is, a full immeressive tracked 3D object in real world via goggles creates entirely new possibilities, including primarily, virtual pets)

If it was a great memorable game chances are in 2 years if you start a topic, someone will want to talk about it

People still have in-depth talks about Baldurs Gate 2 after all. And sometimes on RPG forums you have people trailing off into this or that detail that was in BG2...

So you can be social even with those games after X years

How many times do you worry about looking stupid when playing games on your PC? I just don't think that point has much weight to it.

Warren nailed it though with his endorsement of Cuphead as being a standout from E3. I think the game looks fantastic.

Actually what he says is this

I don't think most humans want to look stupid (everyone looks stupid in a VR headset) and they don't want to isolate themselves from the world

Which tells me he as absolutely no clue about anyone younger than 40 or the fact that nobody gives a shit how they look when they sit half-naked in front of their high-end gaming altar.. VR or not, doesn't exactly change a damn thing and how you look matters absolutely nothing when you are half-naked because your gaming rig is making the room hot as shit ;p

Fact is tons of people want to isolate themselves from the world (50% of world population are introverted). In the western world that is a reason nobody wants to have children anymore. So yeah

He's a great game designer and his game of choice looks really interesting, but he should probably not ever become involved in anything that involves reality. ^^

Have you been working on PC ports for WB again?

Hah, If I had been working on that game the leather outfits would be a lot less constraining, there'd be Japanese school girls and it'd be a PC exclusive release with japanese voice option.. and lots of poison ivy and cat women, and a lot less of Batman

So you probably should be very glad I was not involved heh

I really wonder how they can sustain themselves with these episodic releases... following speamspy I see 70k owners of the game... which remained largely steady since release of episode 2.. so basically no income since then (or at best 10k sales.. and even then, how can they pay the bills?)



Considering an episode release doesn't get you steam front page or listed under new releases I think episodic releases are economical suicide....

That said, I hope I live to see the conclusion of this, because the story is interesting
