I don't play games when their marketing makes a big hubbub about said relationships, no - and I don't recall Mass Effect or Dragon Age grandstanding them.

Like in Divinity: Original Sin, game is incredible - you don't see them on their intro page say "Any gender can be laid by a Man or Female!" Cause that has nothing to do with the merits of the game does it?

By the way, I have a black male with the giant afro and a white female for characters in that game - did I win an award?

Here's how I see it for many...

Bioware is a solid company - they make good games and write good stories (usually). A large majority wanted their RPG games to be more DnD/NwN, and since they instead went with their own IP (for whatever reasons legal or personal) with not near the allure that NwN had, many people got panty twisted.

This is made painfully obvious with the blowout sales that D:OS is having. Those types of games never went out of style, they just stopped being produced and produced well.

Companies who "hit it big" tend to be judged by that criteria...

As soon as I saw "play as gay or straight" I immediately knew I wouldn't play at all.

I can't stand that shit -- I don't play video games to live out relationship fantasies. Now hardcore sex video games, that might be funny for awhile...

I really don't understand why you're offended. The game offers you a choice, but you're offended by the choice because you're not one of the options? So you won't play a game that lets you play as a man or a woman because you're not a woman?

See now that's the problem here. Who in the hell said I was offended? Also I said "relationship fantasies" - that has absolutely nothing to do with me not choosing a certain gender. How could you possibly deduce both of those wrong assumptions?

I don't get "offended" by anything. Offense is something we choose - usually by weak minds who can't accept the fact that everyone is entitled to their opinion. And... so... am... [drum roll] I!

I can't stand the Strait or Gay shit because "I" don't give a shit about love and sex in a video game, and I find companies who parade that type of information are banking on it.

But, as I said, if there's a game where the gameplay is hardcore butrummaging, I'd try it all and start with you! As a male, female, cat, bird, whatever...

Man does destiny look to be a shallow mess. Also reminds me of that very worn-out IP... and no, not that one you think about when you see "Bungie"...

The weird thing about Destiny is that it looks boring from the outside, I had the same attitude before the alpha. Game didn't really interest me and I only grabbed the alpha on a lark. The alpha really turned me around though. It is probably the only console FPS I've ever enjoyed and even though many elements of it are derivative, they've managed to combine it all into an enjoyable package.

So yeah, Destiny is actually pretty decent.

Sure I can see that -- an open world FPS in this vein hasn't been done on consoles, and Bungie has had a lot of years and refine time getting it as right as it can be and will be planting it right in the "nextgen" console garden. But as a PC game it appears to be something I wouldn't touch.

Firefall had promise - it could have been a Tribes FPS meets Borderlands ARPG that would have pulled in the masses and made zillions. But it's not.

Looks like Cutter got to the part where he actually needs to think about encounters. This, assuming he actually thought about his character builds. And since he didn't go lonewolf, this also assumes he has enlisted the two henchmen which makes encounters pretty easy.

Bit too much thinking for him, looks like he's screwed. We'll hear nothing but bitching from him from here on out... not that that's unusual.

He liked it for 15 minutes so that is as good as an endorsement as one can get! He's the "Mikey" of video games.

Axis, as much as I like it, there is no doubt it will still become much better as they polish this up. Even with the delays there was still a rush part about it, but they pretty much had to. What is cool is even as is, it is better than most and for the style of game it is, there isn't even any competition at this time.

Ya I agree HS, looking forward to where it's going to go, and I just can't stop playing the damn game - last one that hooked me like this was NwN, thought I was just getting old... that was one hellova long dry spell. So glad it just keeps selling and sellin, been top on the steam charts for awhile now.

Looks like a definite buy...;) I'm a fan of Larian Studios and hope they'll do very well with this. They've got this fellow who goes by the handle of "Raze" who is a literal font of help and info for their various games, and in far more forums than just Larian's. They should give the guy a medal, or something, because I can't recall another game company employee providing so much help to people. He's still helping out folks running Divine Divinity in the Gog forums! Wish all game companies would follow Larian's sterling example.

OTOH, there are publishers like Ubisoft whose game devs seem to think they are above helping out the people who play their games--I recently finished M&MX, and you could jump up and down and scream and yell, ask sincere questions, it didn't matter--the M&MX game devs couldn't be bothered with actually taking part in Ubisoft's own M&MX forum!

Haha ya we used to joke in the global chat that e never slept - he was literally always on answering peoples questions - one of the best communicators for Larian (or any company) I've seen in a long while.

Well between the praises here and the ones on metacritic as well, and from YT players, looks like I'm going to have to pick this one up. Any guesses on rough hours of play?

Before release I had around 40 hours in, mainly just toying around with character builds and chatting with the community in global (recently disconnected due to the massive influx, but will be back eventually).

Since release I've put in another 30 hours, and I'm about 75% done in Cyseal (Cyseal is just the first 20% or so of the game).

This is one of the few games I'll redo fights just because its fun, or reload chests to see what else pops, reload conversations to ensure my traits are correct, scour the areas for secrets, collect and drop off barrels for future use, steal/pickpocket everything, etc. There is a LOT to do in every area if you want to, and it's a joy doing it.

All word of mouth from many of us backers on many social sites. Then the steam sale came along and pulled in the casual masses who didn't even know it existed. The game/devs/community deserves it..

Hey Verno, can't admit that 2 of my points were independently agreed upon right here in the thread?

My "spelling out" didn't point you into the right direction?

Then that leaves three for you to do your own homework on since you find my posts to be worthy of research. So get to it and report back to us your findings.

What a surprise, Axis posting a bunch of bullshit and unable to back it up. Please stop quoting the troll guys, ignore only works when you let it.

Hey look it's redmask hopping on the troll train! Now you just need NiN to hop on and you'll have enough to pull out that six pack of vasoline you've been saving!

I will not list my posts or emails in an effort to appease your supposed interest. I'd love to think you were trying to be helpful, but I know better.

I never said I was trying to be helpful dude, that was you. I was just asking to see some rationale or detail to flesh out what you posted. People ask each other that all the time on here, I have no problem explaining my opinions *shrug*. Pretty reasonable request given that you weren't exactly detailed earlier. If you can't explain then I think most people get the picture.


What exactly do you need spelled out Verno? Descender came in here at your "defense", then agreed with me about the AI and community - 2 of my 5 points already verified by your sidekick troll. So what is your problem except for constant trolling of my critical posts?

1. The insanely inept and vain dev responses on the beta forums when people gave solid constructive criticism.
Spelled out for Verno + company: Go FIND the responses in the forum, don't be lazy. There are plenty of posts -- you have to actually go find them I won't do your homework for you - I did it 2 years ago already.
2. Shootmanias constant 'announcements' that their garbage game is the new quake among the elite pro gamer tournaments around the world, even during beta.
Spelled out for Verno + company: Go FIND their beta announcements, they have been long gone and I am not, again, going to scour old posts just to feed a troll - go find them yourself.

3. Shootmania has terrible network code which has been improved but LARGELY lacking in almost every way imaginable.
Spelled out for Verno + company: Do your own homework, this one is easy -- there are hundreds of posts about this.

4. Their eye destroying UI.
Spelled out for Verno + company: Your pal descender already agreed, point 1 of 5 verified. Now go ask him for proof.

5. Complete lack of a US community and players, and a sparce EU one.
Spelled out for Verno + company: Your pal descender already agreed, point 2 of 5 verified. Now go ask him for proof.

Don't act cutesy with me Verno. You have no desire to be "enlightened" or have rational detail or discussion with me - you've proven that time and time again. You seek out my criticizing posts and try to take some lofty spot that only encourages the few I've stifled to attempt another attack. I've humored you this time only because the few rational people on this board need to see how ridiculous you are - and frankly I'm sure they already have before I "spelled it out".

Feel free to read their forums on the subject:

You'd need to actually play the game to make any judgement anyway. So.. have you?
