Wow, Pathfinder 2 isn't even on here? Hopefully everybody already bought that weeks or months ago, on Kickstarter, GoG or Steam.
I finally finished Pathfinder: Kingmaker last night, after putting it off for months. The game is amazing right up until the House at the End of Time, then stunlock spam enemies show up. But they are beatable, just have to prep. I'm really looking forward to the sequel, although I guess they dramatically changed the Kingdom/world map management portion, hopefully it's for the better.
KS here, and I only very shortly (probably too much already played it and think it is the BEST CRPG the past decade already) so make of that what you will I only played into act 2 - the siege. And everything until then was way better than anything Kingmaker ever had. The game feels fundamentally better, looks awesome and even sounds awesome. And that was months ago.
You already played it? Alpha or Beta I guess? I did a cheap tier Kickstarter, and if I had beta access I did not use it. Excellent to hear that you liked it though; I'm looking forward to getting my KS key and using it in GoG in a few days.
I'm just hoping they learned a lot from P:K and have a far less buggy launch!
I only played Beta when it released, and only till the siege in act 2 (defeated the enemy there and quit out, so as to not spoiler myself) - and yes, to me this game is a clear and really big evolution over Kingmaker. I am not gonna spoiler you so no worries, but the beginning of Act 1 is extremely fun and offers lots of roleplay potential, and even wide ranging choices (primarily who accompanies you and who does not) as well as really fun mechanics, like defending your starting outpost against a daemon attack and LOTS of options for characters with high skills to influence what happens later on. While ACT2 transfers into a "conquer the world back" mechanic with exploration and side missions that are pretty indepth and interesting. It was also pretty polished a few animation glitches aside. And again, that was many months ago
And also fighting demons from DnD is way more fun than fighting plant fey things (imo)
Compared to Solasta and BG3 it's very different too, to me all 3 games offer something. BG3 the cinematic DnD, Pathfinder the raw insanity of Pathfinder I (based on 3.5e) and Solasta the tactical combat depth with vertical elements.
