It's only a matter of time now before you can buy a Switch knock-off from China for $20.

News Comments > Obsidian: Pillars of Eternity III Uncertain, Would Require Changes

18. Re: Obsidian: Pillars of Eternity III Uncertain, Would Require Changes Nov 12, 2019, 06:54 Jonjonz
 
I love party based RPGs. Loved Dungeon Siege I and II. Love Dragonage series, and now lusting after Original Sin 2 but waiting for the price to come down.

So I tried Pillars I in the meantime. Ugh, what a repetitive mess. Other than choke points and range, positioning has little utility. Combat is a clunky, pause every 2 micro seconds to micro every single party member.
The story/writing is about what you would expect from amateurs role playing at your local Renaissance Faire.

I rank it way below any of the titles in the first paragraph. Easy to understand why no one wanted POE II.

Fallout 76 anyone?

* assume a single player game's IP
* make it online only
* make it open world multiplayer
* add a trading system
* add micro-transactions that will make trading moot

While your at it, throw a washed out soft focus palette on cause eye candy is so NOT 2019.

Ggycat's lawyer's text claiming they can revoke your "permission" to visit their public website is laughable.

I don't get Kojima fans. I don't get Kojima.

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain, is a fun game, but the narrative is just plain awful tripe.

I'm waiting for a few Utube play throughs to see if this is any better or worse.

Bzzzt, wrong. Golden Age of TV was the 50s-70s, before reality BS and the drive to the lowest production costs ruined most of it. Missing that fact is endemic of this latest generation to never do any historical research past 1-thier own experience and 2 - any research other than a quick Google search.

It is true Cable and now streaming are revitalizing episodic video fiction, but that is a whole other story.

Currently bingeing on Sense8.

Looks bland, washed out, low contrast palette, and any game play vid that hides the UI is always suspect to me.

Also somehow reminds me of GW2 original class reveal videos where each toon looks invincible and totally wipes the floor with all mobs shown, always a red flag for me, as it is hiding how much kiting, dodging and other parts of combat required by the game which may or may not appeal to you.

Add the one where you are suddenly are deprived of all your gear and have to fight your way out of a situation with a wooden spoon or something equally ludicrous.

This one usually comes around just after you get your first decent amount of skills and gear, making it even more annoying.

4. Linux Oct 28, 2019, 06:38 Jonjonz
 
I used Linux for years for various web/data servers and it was and is always a two step dice roll:

* It seems random if a flavor will actually work on your iron. So many times incompatibilities with video card, mouse, raid, etc have meant try another flavor.
* It seems random if the working flavor actually works with the applications you want.

I have three times got fed up with Win 10 on my personal PC, and tried the latest greatest Linux flavors, only to find none of them to not work on my particular notebook or my desired applications.

Shame about Yahoo Groups, RIP.

The Stunt Island group was essential if you really wanted to get into producing movies with SI.

Blizz has been pretty much outed for the craven willing to do business with monsters slime they are.

Hope they get trolled relentlessly from here on out.

Following in the footsteps of Blockbuster, GameStop, and RadioShack.

Times change, people don't buy stero HI-Fi systems anymore, they listen to music on crappy ear buds plugged into their phones. Fewer and fewer young people have the motivation or curiosity to open up and tinker with anything, if they can't get it on thier phone, they don't bother, hence the market for PC components is shrinking. Games are sold/rented online. Even BestBuy is a joke now compared to what they used to be, they give about the same amount of floor space to packaged impulse snacks as they do PC stuff.

I can kind of see the little fox race as a marketing focus group product to appeal to certain foreign markets, but they all ready had gnomes who used mechs, so the second so called race is rather thin.

So the Rose Tinted Glasses are starting to evaporate for some and have grown permanently attached for others. No gamers like to whine more about their chosen poison than WOW players.

Give it a few more months.

Don't most new games loses 93% of Twitch viewership in two weeks?

On release everybody and their brother streams with the hope of getting in on a ground floor of something big, and most of the time they all leave when the game turns out to not be the next big thing.

I expect we will see this kind of cloying clueless copped from press release BS for at least the next 10 years at which time 5G will still be a niche product for 1% whales in the penthouses of the world.
