Considering the flop that was Stick of Truth, how shit will this game when it comes out?
How long will a playthrough be?
Considering that you literally cannot stop sucking dicks, how did you make this thread?
>How long will a playthrough be?
Fastest complete run so far was 43 hours.
>how shit will this game when it comes out?
it wont be though
one of the few games on /v/ where the audience knows what they are put up with.
it will be buggy
it will not be optimized
it will need a day1 patch
but we will love and enjoy it at least 2 playthroughs
only the DA:I generation will try and complain
is the gameplay/battle still this d&d stuff from baldurs gate or is it more modern?
i just cant get into this battle system its so slow and clunky
Considering they aren't being rushed by a publisher this time around I'm kinda hoping it won't have all the standard Obsidian issues.
But I already know I'll love it regardless.
A) it's actually good 5%
B) it's shit and wrpg nostalgiafags finally have to own up to the fact that they don't know fuck about good gameplay - 10%
b) it's shit but backers all claim it's amazing and everyone else is just too dumb for hardcore rpgs - 85%
Umm no. The not-bards have skellingtons.
>btw I always play Human Male Warrior in all fantasy games
Chanters and Ciphers seriously look more fun
How the mighty have fallen
>only class that can fulfill different roles is druid
I am disappointed.
I don't get why people shit on Obsidian for releasing buggy games. Both Dungeon Siege 3 and The Stick of Truth were fine bugwise and New Vegas was just Bethesda being Bethesda. I mean every Bethesda game was retarded bugfest since Daggerfall, they've even manage to release a DLC with game-breaking bugs. Yet you don't see them shitting so hard on them every time their new game is released.
Since we are talking about wizards
Is there a single movie/tv series that didn't show wizards as pure shit? The ones I've seen always die because of retarded reasons like:
>not having protective spells like stoneskin, protection from missiles, resist elements, spells that offer protection against other spells like mantles, spell resistance, globe of invulnerability
>not having contingencies, access to divinations, others means of alerting you of the presence of enemies like a simple fucking Alarm spell so you won't be caught unaware
God why are wizards outside of videogames so shit, and now even on vidya they have become shit
Waiting for the Wheel of Time television series.
I feel like the wizard in 4th edition D&D was pretty balanced. They had a role and could fulfill it to its fullest without making the rest of the group useless. Dunno why people threw a shit-fit over it.
The shows are all-right. It's DnD that's retarded. I mean literally everyone managed to make wizards better than DnD. I mean being a Wizard was supposed to be a dangerous time-taking task. In DnD it's:
>Top kek I bought a bunch of scrolls
>Hey dudes, I've learned how to summon trolls, cast fireballs, make myself invisible in a single evening.
>Being a wizard is hard top kek
I mean seriously. Warriors need a special feat to learn how to use different kind of sword a bit better, while Wizards get all spells on their level basically for free? Who designed this shit?
the wizard in 4th was strong as fuck, especially since in the first book it was the only class that filled that role. even after the other books came out, it's probably still the BEST class that fills their role.
people are just butthurt because they went from being the only class that mattered in 3.5 to being balanced with everybody else
Harry Potter's pretty shit in this regard because the system of magic it uses is ambiguous as fuck and pretty much only exists to serve the needs of the plot. If you want a series involving wizards that actually explores the idea of magic users in a logical way, read the Earthsea series.
>no playable cat or lizard people
Oh, so you are this kind of retard. Here is a bunch of shows that should satisfy you
>DBZ (wizards are called Z-warriors)
>Naruto (wizards are called Ninjas)
>Full Metal Alchemist
All of these feature "OP as fuck XDDD" Wizards, so they should satisfy you.
I'm pre-ordering just for the chanter abilities. They remind me so much of GW1 ritualists.
because outside of video games wizards are mentors and plot devices. remember that merlin was defeated by a fucking bush. wizards are overpowered in video games because nerds use it as a self-insert power fantasy.
>The shows are all-right
Except wizards are pure shit that die from a single stab or sneak attack in 99% of them because apparently they didn't have time to pre cast stoneskin
Oh wait, also because apparently they don't understand the concept of casting spells at range
Are you really saying you should be able to defeat a wizard worth his damn with a simple gun? Holy shit why would anyone even bother learning magic if it was that weak in the first place
I'm curious. I checked the wiki, and was wondering if the information in it is complete.
Classes for example seem to have like 8 abilities (minus spell casters) and only go upto level 12 or so.
There is like 4-6 weapons/armor of a type and so on.
Is this information complete, or just from a beta test which only included a part of the game?
Every time a chanter "casts" he starts singing out his ballad or whatever.
>Blessed was Wengridh
11/10, no way that's not intentional.
>only game with playable kobolds is Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup
>yfw there will never be an epic kobold-centered RPG
What class should I pick? I am leaning towards monk or fighter, but they look like they might have boring builds. I want a class that won't be replicated by one of the other NPC's so I get experience building unique character builds.
>Are you really saying you should be able to defeat a wizard worth his damn with a simple gun? Holy shit why would anyone even bother learning magic if it was that weak in the first place
Why would someone learn how to be a surgeon if most doctors can be beaten by a bunch of jocks? Why would someone learn quantum physics if a bunch of niggers would own like a 100 of these nerds. Because there are other uses of magic than being a dumb nerd blasting imaginary jocks with fireballs. Most people would study magic just to learn divination spells or shit like telepathy.
>that wonderful feel when you saged another shitposter thread and dont give a fuck about that shitty cancer mod that will now ban you because dynamic IP
/v/ is worse then neogaf and something awful combined
shill and shitposting threads everywhere
But the game is made for the furry audience.
1000 gp is like nothing in Baldur's Gate really. I understand having cash problems in BG 1, but I literally never had problems with money in BG 2, the game literally showers you with dosh.
>Not going to watcher keep after the tutorial dungeon with a thief to trap abuse the first half of floor 1. Steal everything and sell it outside, and get the +3 firetooth to 1-shot everything.
In most of these settings, magic is primarily used to kill shit. Even when it is used for other things, it's just not very practical and technology is the better solution.
Magic in most fiction is poorly thought out.
Skeletons are your friends. Once summoned they are bros.
I remember my first time trying summon skeletons in BG2.
>mindraper rapeing my mind
>wait a bit longer
>first EXP confirm killed target
>tfw mindraper cant rape lvl 1 skeletons
Americans are ultra-racist against Asians, get used to it. I liked it most when they've just eradicated Asians from Avatar, and only nerds cared about that. If Asians ever gets included in PoE expect them to be honorable martial artists who like tea and talking like asshats.
So far? Absolutely. But I'm pretty sure Witcher 3 will be better. Good thing I've bought and will play both. The PoE beta was bug ridden and bare bones but it was a good indicator of the final product which will be a great game.
I'm hype for my key arriving in the email.
no it was not only a bad game but the summary of everything wrong with modern south park plus it had several fucking gay parts and a lot of edgy shit for the sake of being edgy
>It's tougher if you want to buy every magical item no matter how worthless
Well obviously if you are retarded with money they will run out. Doesn't mean that getting enough scrolls for your mages is expensive.
You were expecting something different?
>hideous NWN2 kobolds
I guess it worked for Baldur's Gate. If that's the ingame cat form I can live with it.
These setting are usually on very primitive technological level and magic is almost always useful, and rarely used for combat. In fact it can do shit technology can never do like hurt magical foes or summon demons. If you want blaster wizards just watch Slayers or Naruto and stop bitching about shows where magic is not as retarded as DnD-vomit.
Most of the men are based off backers, and nerds are not known for their smouldering good looks. This one looks pretty nice, though.
Every Ritualist skill in GW1 was named
>X was Y
did anyone check out this shit they mentioned in the last update?
is it legit or just a copycat get rich quick scheme ripoff of PoE?
>randy anal prove thing that is literally no different from a flash porn game
>Getting inside the faggot ass cutting through webs of semen, activating a dildo inside,etc while the faggot moans to recover the crown
>not absolutely digusting
Exactly what it should be you limpwristed faggot
No catpeople in EL. And the combat mechanics and unit variety in EL is lacking.
>without being some edgy flagellant faggot or some not-shaolin monk
The monks are literally powered by suffering in PoE. It's their class unique mechanic.
is the music any good?
i remember hearing a piece of sample music a while back and it was so-so, but i haven't been keeping up with the beta and all that. a decent soundtrack can really make the difference in terms of immersion.
it sounds like its out of bg2, but there's like 1 combat music and 1 non-combat music. I can see myself just muting music after 1 hour because it's so repetitive. That is, if it's the same in the final game. I'm talking about the beta.
I think they've updated a lot of the music. The old music was synthetic, but they've got live versions of it now and it sounds nice.
speaketh that to mine face, knave, and see what transpires henceforth
That's just an excuse. The only thing complex about RPGs by comparison to other games is the different determinant paths a player can take in terms of plot. Other genres are far more buggy. Case in point: TES games.
PoE is in no way a technically complex game in comparison to a first person game that uses physics as its main game play mechanic.
And they had to ruin it by including dwarves.
Dwarves and elves are cool and should be friends.
Also dammit my last post got cut off.

You holster one temporarily.
Hell, you could even disable reloading in combat entirely and it could still be worth it for the burst damage.
The pilot was a placeholder WE'VE STILL GOT THE RIGHTS move by Red Eagle.
It wasn't meant to set the world on fire, just pretty much give them more time. And please god let them, Game of Thrones is boring as shit.

Need to upgrade this junk ASAP
I backed Wasteland 2, Eternity and Numenera on kickstarter despite generally disliking crowd-funding. The Eternity beta was pretty fun if you're looking for another Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale or ToEE, this is pretty much perfect. It's got some nice updates that some of those older games didn't have either. I don't think you need to be a nostalgiafag to like this game, but you probably need to be a D&Dfag to like it.
Where do I find the soul vessel in Le a Rhemen? I just had my Chanter permadie in the room with the dead adventuring party, but I don't think it's there either.
Is there a way to go down that collapsed section south of the entrance?
Well to be honest it makes sense. If you are small, but strong you can use pretty heavy ranged weapons to your advantage. CQC sucks because everyone using the same weapon as you will benefit from larger range and height advantage.
Did you let the spider-like thing go? If so, that thing he was after was the soul vessel. Sorry. You can get down to the ruined part with a grappling hook, though, and it has a few decent items down there. Go buy one from the village blacksmith.
>I also don't want sequel to things I enjoy
Dude, did you miss the fabulous hats in the latest footage?
Why? The white race is literally extinct in that setting.
You mean I can play as a glorious warrior pimp Landschneckt!?
Yes and it looks fantastic ingame.
So what class is everyone planning to make their MC?
I'm still undecided between Monk, Cipher, or Rogue. The fact that rogues can do backstab and other special attacks with any weapon makes me pretty interesting in making some sabre and pistol style swashbuckler that guns down foes.
I still have to see how traps work out but I love the sneak attacks and taking out the main threat of every encounter in the first second like mages, bandit leader, clerics, archer and so on
combine it with some nasty ark-abuse in 4 slots and you are a one man army as long as your companions can hold the line and provide sneak attack requirements
>believing everyone and everything you see on 4chan
no, I'm sure you're just special
>bitch, i'm too fabulous
>The German compound Landsknecht (earlier Lantknecht, without fugen-s) combines Land "land, country", here in the sense of "lowlands" and Knecht "servant, vassal", here in the sense of "foot-soldier". The compound Lantknecht was used during the 15th century of bailiffs or court ushers. In its application to mercenaries, it is first recorded in the 1480s, perhaps coined by Peter von Hagenbach and intended to indicate soldiers of the lowlands of Swabia as opposed to the "highlander" Swiss mercenaries.
>As early as 1500, the term was re-etymologized as Lanzknecht, suggesting a derivation from Lanze "lance; pike". The modern term Landser is possibly based on Landsknecht, as is the name of the French card game Lansquenet.
>The more common English-language plural form is Landsknechts, but the original German form Landsknechte is also in use. Since it is a common noun, it may also be written with lower-case "l", landsknechts.
