>THE FIRST GOOD CRPG IN A DECADE!!!!

Now /v/, I always knew most of you were pleb but come on, just because an RPG is released with decent graphics doesn't mean it's the only good one of the last decade.
>>
It literally is the only noteworthy CRPG in years

How do they do it.

Next game probably will be spectacular.
>>
>>256036508
Literally the only thing "noteworthy" about it is the graphics. There are plenty of indie games out there with better gameplay, balance and world building.
>>
>>256036239
To be honest I prefer Divinity 2.
>>
So, will they make an expansion?
They've already got the tools, so it'd be a fairly easy way to make some dough.
>>
>>256036239
It's a Reddit bandwagon. The game is great sure but it sure isn't the best or only one decent to come in the last 5 or so years.
>>
>>256039116
I'd rather they make a new game.
>>
>>256039409
Sure, but that's more expensive and people will expect more from a totally new game.
They could probably make some money with an expansion (new weapons, skills, etc), money they could use for a new game.
>>
>>256039570
Sure, im just really interested what next they will come up with. Seems like they have bold and ambitious ideas.
>>
>>256037549
Name me a few.

I love this game and I would gladly play games like this one even with worse graphics (since the game works like ass in this computer anyways)

The environmental interaction, combat, in depth co-op have nothing to do with it

You mention indie as if its a mark of a bad game.

Whatabout Shadowrun, Divos aswell.

That dude is talking shit though, Divos was a fairly expensive indie game and did alot of features great justice in one package.

Avernum: Escape from the Pit for one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwnYfNLHo0U

If you can't handle that game anything else I recommend will be too "hardcore" for you.
>>
>>256042690
Not necessarily, but Larian is far from being an indie studio, and I really don't think any indie games get to the level of D:OS
>>
>>256040257
The environmental interaction, combat, in depth co-op

>Muh casting water then electric spells !!! so deep combat
>>
>>256042994
You're kinda leaving out the multitude of battle skills, positioning, etc

but hey bro, whatever
>>
>>256043282
>battleskills

Yeah casting the spells on the ground

>positioning

"dont stand in the giant electrified pool of water or on the giant burning flames"

Again, such deep combat! Much fun.
>>
>>256042981
Well, they are still independant, especially on this project. I'd say they fit the bill, though some people have their own definitions. Even CDprojekt is mentioned as an indie developer in some articles though the lines are a little blurry there imo.

And military manouvers consist of "avoid bullet, shoot badguy such tactics" by your logic.

Pffft, you're a funny guy. Those games are so shallow repetitive. I know the dev comes here, and he is the only person that would defend them.

Common theyre not that bad, but the dude probably has enough funds to upgrade his engine to something a bit less arhaic by now, but refuses to do so.

Doubt it. It was at least 2 years ago I think. Maybe a bit less.

The world and story is 10x more interesting than Divinity OS.

>>256043669
military maneuvers =/= in game positioning consisting of not stepping on fire. I can prove im not the guy you just replied to but in reality that's all this shit is. Granted I got bored with the game 3 hours in.
>>
>>256045084
And the gameplay is infinitely worse.
>>
>>256045123
Oversimplification and lack of experience is a blessing for your arguments.
>>
>>256044783
They would have compared it to Diablo if Diablo 3 hadn't ruined the series reputation. It's just a way of name dropping even though the games aren't similar at all.
>>
>>256044638
But the only good parts of BG2 were the writing done by Black Isle, BG1, NWN1, KOTOR1 were all shit, Jade Empire was fun in a campy sort of way, Mass Effect 1 was decent, the first Dragon Age was dogshit, from then on everything has been romance faggot tier shit.
>>
>>256045247
>lol my characters dont slip on ice and i cant electrify water what shit gammeplay!

No wonder so many indie games focus on shitty gimmicks over making actually balanced and fun gameplay, retards like you eat it up.
>>
>>256045123
> in game positioning consisting of not stepping on fire

The enemy does so aswell. What now? Your caster is disabled, what now? Floating enemies dont touch the ground, what now?

if you play to brake the game then any game is flawed in that way. From shooters to rpg's to whatever. The game offers alot of variety in combat approach, other aspects may not be as deep, like summoning ( though element synergy still works here, amazingly).

The only issue with the combat i can see legitly is Initiative being in players favour all too often. Recommend me another fantasy game that has anything as creative, i'd like to play these kind of games.
>>
>>256045764
Nice, instead of telling him how diffrent but compelling their combat system is, you make yourself look like an ass.
>>
>>256045764
>lol my characters dont slip on ice and i cant electrify water
I'm starting to see what happened. You got mad when you accidentally slipped on your own ice and stunned your characters and ragequit, didn't you?

Also being retarded isn't an argument. Avernum gameplay just doesn't match. The world isn't as interactive and the combat is pathetic compared to D:OS.
>>
>>256036239
It's a shame the artstyle is the same wowish crap as everything else.
>>
>>256047937
Only thing they needed to change was the male MC, and it wouldve looked fine.

So close.
>>
>>256047937
seconding
I'm already sick of it
>>
>>256047937
I always bitch about this too, mostly because I can't look at these kind of over colorful games for too long. I really feel nauseous after about 30 mins, like literally.

Tried lowering color saturation, but then it weird, because these games are filled with lightsources too.

I'm eager to see the industry move back to darker medieval tones.

GREAT

I really hate those badly done cookie cutter fantasy worlds and except discworld I kind of loath comedic fantasy but the combat in this game is really the saving Grace, easily a 9/10.
The only downers is the retarded AI, wasting it's most precious ressources on the therefore far, far too useful summons (though that is mistake many games do). Equally annoying is the AI's innability to detect when it's attacks are doing damage or when they heal their opponts (fire boss unconcernedly attacking a summoned fire spirit or your fire shielded party members). This sadly makes the combat a joke on all difficulty levels.

Another thing that is not so well done is that RP decisions lead to hugely imbalanced combat bonuses with "good" moral choices in some cases leading to mandatory enhancements (immune to fear) and evil sometimes to useless ones (+backstabbing dmg on warriors or mages).

Are there any other mechanical flaws I forgot to mention here?
>>
>>256052525
Whoa, I went a little overboard with caps. Ignore caps in "gameplay" pls.
>>
>>256045764
Gimmicks or not those add depth to the game/combat and at least "innovate" in some way. Greentexting that is not helping your argument like at all.
>>
>>256039218

>anyone on reddit being able to play divinity: original sin

They probably died in the first monster in the tutorial dungeon, ragequit, then uninstalled the game
>>
>>256038924
the games are completely different though. i do like the combat (non dragon) in divinity 2 more though but not much more than OS

goddamn i hated dragon combat though

>>256039570
i totally think theres an expansion for this coming. there will be a new game sometime in the future but definitely an expansion of some sort first. even if its just a little dlc mission
>>
>the only "argument" people seem capable to use to talk shit about OS is greentexting "MUH ENVIRONMENT-CHANGING SPELLS" as if it was a bad thing

The game is literally like any other game of the same genre but with the environment stuff and better graphics. It's pointless comparing it to any other game when it is basically an improved game. Anyone disagreeing with this is in denial and probably damage controlling to the max.
>>
>>256055326
>game becomes popular
>people bend over backwards to shit on it
i think its because people are saying its perfect and such when it still has some flaws but still people are really upset that a decent game came out and people are happy about it
>>
>>256042857
Is this the same developer of Avadon: Black Fortress?
Because if so they were boring as fuck.
>>
>>256042857
The original Avernum games were way better.
>>
>>256044783
It's more like ToEE except without the myriad of issues that made ToEE a shit game.

There's also Lords of Xulima and Antharion to look forward to.

They're more gameplay-focused RPGs, and I'm real partial to these.

>>256059445
You'll probably get it someday. They did make a damn good profit out of DivOS.
Maybe they can make something like Div2 someday, except with action combat that DOESN'T suck monkey balls.
>>
Divinity 3 when :(
>>
Why did they go back to isometric view? They did such a good job with world in Divinity 2, it had great views, but now we're back to looking at the ground and occasional trees and rocks.
