PoE got rated Mature

>Content Descriptors: Blood, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Violence

>Rating Summary: This is a role-playing game in which players assume the roles of heroes exploring a fantasy world. From a ¾-overhead perspective, players traverse dungeons/crypts, interact with different characters, and engage in various quests. Players use swords, axes, and magic spells to kill human enemies and fantastical creatures (e.g., dragons, trolls, ogres). Battles are accompanied by slashing impact sounds and frequent blood-splatter effects. Some levels depict chamber floors covered in large pools of blood. During the course of the game, players can interact and purchase services from a prostitute—no sexual act is ever depicted. The dialogue can also reference sexual material (e.g., “The prostitute holds her hips, thrusting her chest forward as you come near her” and “But if he spreads a rumor that her lover has just visited a brothel and acquired a pox on his loins, she'll end it on her own.'). The word “f**k” appears in dialogue.

So no romances but you can fuck diseased whores.

This is the magic of not having to listen to a publisher pushing for every game to get a Teen rating.

Obsidian mentioned that it'll be extremely hard for modders to create new maps because of the complex way they're put together, but since everything is done in text anyway it should be easy to write in some dragon-fucking scenes.

I don't really care if there is or isn't romance in this game, however I do hope there is good character interaction in this game for party members. I really don't enjoy RPGs that have party members suddenly engage conversation with slice of life dialog when I'm a hostile dungeon.
Some of the Baldur's Gate characters annoyed me because of this.

Considering pre-determined companion characters are entirely replaceable with your custom-made mercenary hires I imagine they won't be annoying with their OH SO IMPORTANT personal stories intruding on your business all the time.
>>
>>283412939
They're taking an example from Storm of Zehir and when somebody has something to say there's word balloon on their portrait you click on to initiate dialogue.
>>
>>283413268
Sounds pretty boring.
>>
>>283412939
>>283413268
Companion characters will pipe up with the personal bullshit from time to time, so you can just boot them and use mercenaries instead if that annoys you.

Mercs have the added advantage of being fully customizable just like your main character, but they don't have personal quests so that's at least one reason to check out the companions.
>>
Will PoE be a power gaming fantasy like Bg2 was?
>>
>>283413573
I doubt it. They're going for an "every stat is useful to everyone" approach, so min-maxing will probably be less important than in D&D-based games.
>>
>>283413268
Dunno, from the stuff they showed at the panel there was significant interaction with your party members. Not sure how it works with the custom ones though, maybe you get to pick which dialogue choices and quests and shit they have?

>>283413268
Companion interactions are the huge part of fun in this games.

afaik the hired adventurers don't have dialogue.

Yeah that is cool a feature, but I really just hope they nail it with character interactions. I mean all they really have to do is have the characters say some open world dialog once with it being on topic with what we are doing or just make a small comment about the area we are in. Only when we are at base or in a town, I don't really mind if they engage in conversation that stops me from moving if the discussion with is said character isn't retarded.

The entire setting of PoE and plot is a SJW fantasy. Stuff like a black people enslaving white people is a key plot element. Every SJW and LGBT argument including colonization is thrown into this game's plot. It's entirely about "social justice" and making a fun or interesting plot second.

Basically in order of importance

1. Social Justice
2. Making an RPG
3. Fantasy or original setting

Like literally the entire plot, setting, races, and structure of the game is meant to push his SJW ideas.

I understand now:

Rogues are triggering, because they have sthealth and kill you fast, so they are completely gimped for their previous privilege.

Wizards are str based because in the past, stupid buffed up guys couldn't be magicians. The privilege is over.

Barbarians now become progressively more intellectual because the pen is stronger than the sword, so squalid barbarians stop being oppressed.

yeah it's some of the worst world building ever. The setting is extremely dry.

Most "nations" or whatever are just like a mish mosh of random historical societies. AKA black victorians with slaves and city states or some other cliche mish mash.

Basically you just take a simple rng of common society tropes and mix them together to get all the nations or sides.

It's pretty fucking basic and shit compared to the fantasy settings people are making these days. It's really bad but can't expect much from a simple D&D reskin.

The lack of D&D players is disturbing.

This game is gonna fail so hard. Short, nothing special story/world, agenda characters and bugged as hell. Oh the tears are gonna be delicious

Escape only has limited uses and is very short range meaning it doesn't take much for the enemy to take two steps and catch up with you.

It wasn't in the IE games , you know the games this one marketed itself as the spiritual successor of. Long time IE players find the entire mechanic bugged and offputting. There's already a mod to turn it off. The game isn't even out yet and already people are fixing Obsidian's mistakes.

So send your fighter or paladin in after the rogue escapes. If the fighter is engaged, use knockdown on whatever he's fighting and then move him in. Use tactics.
>>283424159
There's a reason why engagement existed in D&D. It gives frontline characters like Fighters something to do because it allows them to block enemies from getting to the squishier ranged weapons users and spellcasters. I don't know why you think it's such a horrible thing.

Some of them do, but they're not really consistent. I wish Justin Sweet was doing them all.

>>283424724
What if the fighter has to pull back for whatever reason? Or just move around? Get critted just for moving a single step is absurd.

That's subjective.

>>283424782

The Divinity games and the IE games are two different buckets. They're not as comparable as you'd think.

>>283424972
No it's not. Baldur's Gate combat system is dated as fuck.
>>
>>283424946
Critted? Are you talking about the old build from December/January? The new one has nerfed engagement attacks. They've lost the bonus damage.
>>
>>283422635

Wrong. These are more focused on faces, whereas Icewind Dale 'portraits' or mostly full body.
>>
>>283425027
This isn't AD&D though, just real-time with pause which is as valid as any other time-keeping system.
>>
>>283425027
If we want to get into it, DnD is dated as fuck. Other games are much better but no one wants to use them.

Real-time with pause directly translates to "pause at every conceivable moment to set up your abilities." The equivalent of turn-based except you queue up all your moves at once. Terrible and clunky.

>>283425169
D&D is not dated as fuck because it's a tabletop game. Moreover, it's TURN-BASED, making it fucking baffling as to why every D&D game insists on being pause-based.
>>
>>283424782
Maybe.
But it had fun mechanics and gameplay

He's trying to say the brush strokes and colors are very IWD-ish to which I agree. PoE's portraits look literally like a combination of IWD's and BG's.
>>
>>283424885
As someone who has played through Div:OS on hard, the combat is nothing to write home about.

There is just too much imbalanced shit and combat is super stale because of it. There is very little reason to deviate from the same tried and true tactics and builds that you will be using the whole way through.
>>
>>283425368
It's not turn based because everything happens simultaneously when you're not paused. It's not all that different from real time tactics where you have the benefit of issuing orders while paused because they're not trying to test your reflexes.
>>
>>283425368
>Moreover, it's TURN-BASED, making it fucking baffling as to why every D&D game insists on being pause-based.

Literally just wider appeal and because IE games did it. Go back to older D&D games, they were all turn-based.

I like the monks in this game because once you get enough wounds and get the feat that gives you 5% fire damage per wound, you fuck shit up. Especially if you combine it with the skill that boosts your attack speed.

Dark Sun games are probably two of the most unjustly overlooked D&D games simply because they came out during an awkward transitional period for CRPGs. Had they received IE visual treatment they would be venerated as classics today.
