You can't set the difficulty to Path of the Damned mid-game. You can only set it lower. I'm playing on Veteran, I want to make the game harder and the next highest difficulty is Path of the Damned, so I effectively can't change the difficulty.

Ah OK, yes, that is correct for PotD. You can only switch as you like mid-game between Story, Relaxed, Classic and Veteran with the caveat that the new difficulty will always only apply to maps not yet visited.

Oh well, I have shelved the game for now and will return to it once all the patches and the DLC is out next winter.

I really hope that the seemingly poor sales won't put an early end to support (like Tyranny which seems to have been abandoned in spite of some serious unfixed issues from what I have read). It would be a shame if this gem would remain unpolished.

Also, once you choose a difficulty at the start of the game, you can't change it so I'm stuck with a pretty laid back experience.

This is not quite true. You can change the difficulty mid-game at any time BUT the change will only apply to maps you have not been to yet.
When you switch difficulty, you get a message that says, and I quote... 'Difficulty change will take effect on any maps you have not yet visited'.

Anyway, huge difficulty level rework is on the way but it will take some time. The devs are very aware that the game is too easy. Priority is bug-fixing though. Balance passes will follow up later. This Twitch stream with Josh Sawyer is pretty informative wrt to post-release plans.

I was gonna wait for it to get cheaper, but it's already $37.50 on GMG with a promo code... so I'll get Pillars 2 now.

It's even cheaper (well, marginally) on Fanatical at least for the next 13 hours or so since it is today's 'Star Deal'.

It is definitely selling better on Gog than Steam though. I think the single player RPG crowd is more interested in Gog's platform these days... I know I definitely am.(for single player!)

Sorry, but as much as I would like to believe that, it is wishful thinking. Deadfire may rank higher on GOG's charts because it is -for GOG- relatively generating more revenue on GOG but GOG per se is generally moving a MUCH lower volume of games at much lower average selling prices (due to the "good old" games), of course. That's why Deadfire has it easier on GOG to be in the charts. It has much less competition.

The typical ratio of games released on both platforms is usually at least 80% - 90% in favor of Steam. Or, even worse, as Brian Fargo put it by saying that TToN sales outside of Steam were "negligible".

We should talk about sales. Everyone can look them up for Steam. It's currently sitting around 120,000. Can you tell us how many copies were sold from other distribution sources?

Brian: Negligible.

Oh man. As much as I like to joke about "Obshittian" it is kind of painful to see no sign of Deadfire anymore in the second week after its release .

Sure, they've brought this upon themselves with a history of buggy and shitty releases so I'm hoping they will get a second, third... sales push once the patches and DLCs are out.

Deadfire is a decent game at its core (89 MC average does not lie in this case) and it deserves to do much better than some lame, old, dumb MP garbage like R6 Siege which is a disgrace to its once glorious franchise.

SciFi setting is perfect for DLC'o'rama piecemeal deliveries, of course. They can just keep adding planet after planet until the udders are dry.

The 1180 won’t matter if it doesn’t come out with enough stock that miners don’t make them impossible to get. I’ve got a couple friends who want to get into pc gaming but not at the stupid prices the high end gear still commands.

Rumor has it that the 1180 is going to be more expensive than the 1080 at launch which will make it less attractive for miners.
The pro miners/farms have already shifted towards buying more efficient special ASICs for mining instead of GPUs which is why the prices for GPUs have almost come back to normal in the last few weeks.

It is fairly unlikely that the 1180 will be in high demand by miners but it will probably be an expensive card regardless. It will most likely launch north of the 1080s $699 MSRP so $749(?) or $799(?)... we'll see.

FE garbage is supposed to ship in July and the real deal, i.e. board partner cards with decent custom coolers are supposed to follow up August/September.

So if you don't want to pay an early adopter idiot premium then it's best to wait until October/November and buy a decent custom card.

BTW, with GPU prices almost back to normal, I think the bigger problem right now for new PC builds lies in the RAM prices. Sheesh. That shit has gotten seriously expensive and there is no turnaround in sight.

Now that the loot boxes are a non issue...

So according to the blurb at the end of the trailer, you get access to private beta if you preorder.

Ummm... OK.

But what if you're not gay? Or is private beta a chick???

Am I missing some inside thing, but shouldn't it be IV?

As a Great Latinum holder (I had nine fucking years of Latin in SKEWL biotches!!! ), I am glad you asked.

The "IV" notation being considered as the standard is a relatively new thing that came up after the fall of the Roman Empire.
In "ancient" Rome the "IIII" notation was actually the more prevalent one because "IV" would have been considered blasphemous as those were the intitals of the God Mr. Jupiter.
