Finally on the last game in my backlog: Baldur's Fucking Gate 2
The size of this game is completely fucking nuts. The side quests actually feel like adventures. Why isn't there stuff like this anymore?
My guess is that the gameplay will be slightly better than Planescape, but with the story it's hard to tell. Usually Obsidian has good writers, even with stuff like FO:NV.
Tides of Numenera on the other hand will probably be shit, sadly
>ten million dollars is nothing by today's standards
It AAA+ Money for the time.
Shit, Gears of War cost less to make.
But making a game like BGII today, scaled to today's production values would be very expensive.
I want to smoke what you have, Anon.
Have you ever played Baldurs Gate? Please explain what qualifies DA to be a "spiritual successor", as Origins, which is superior to Inquisition, was advertised, let alone a "modern day" version?
Man I'm playing MoTB but those fucking buff/debuff icons really fucking piss me off. They don't tell me what the source of the buff/debuff is, how the fuck am I supposed to do anything about it?
Is there a mod that fixes it and maybe makes it like Baldurs Gate/Icewind Dale, where it has the spell source name instead of "constitution decreased"?
MMhhh.. Granted, they had personality in 7.
Kinda forgot, I always liked Underworlds much more than the main series.
>waahh, my selfinsert is ruined by not being able to kill everything alone
>not knowing how to solo BG games
>forever shittier pleb
Kensai/ Wizard makes the game a joke.
They had personalities as far back as IV. Anyway, there's also Star Control 2, Wasteland, the first two Fallouts, Dragon Quest and a half dozen others that did character driven NPCs.
It makes for a lot more varied combat especially in BG2.
God, I loved the fight in the Illithid caves. Kite them through the rogue's traps, block the at a doorway with the clerics undead summons and blast them from afar.
Tactics >>>> Awesome Button.
Does anyone have any recommendations for CRPGs like BG2 with party member development? I loved BG2 and am going to replay it soon but would like something to play after that gives off the same feel.
Also, I made it to the end of BG1 but my save fucked up. Is it possible to go into BG2 with items from BG1 like the pantaloons or possibly modding my characters to be how they were in BG1?
Am I the only one who hates every single one of the party members? I mean, I love Irenicus and the storyline, but god damn these assholes are insufferable
You can't make games like this if you want GRAPHIX and next gen shit or it'd cost too much money to make it as expansive, so level design has gotten much weaker and narrow
The only thing close to the scope is something like GTA V and Skyrim but those have huge bloated budgets and still feels incomplete
You have to go back to old sprite design
