Hey, nice to see you here Peregrinus! Smile Will you be good to play when the launch rolls around?

I hope so, starting out won't be the same with out you.

Though I suppose it won't be new to you anyway, will it? Which means I can still assault you with all my ooohs! and aaahs! without worrying about spoilers. cat

How do you backers get the official game anyway?

I'm not sure when I'll be moving out but it'll be soon. I am thinking of holding off on getting anything til I'm settled somewhere else. Backers get the game through Steam I believe.

Awww, and I was looking forward to marvelling at the isometric wonder you opened my eyes to along with you. Neutral Ah well, life happens. Hope things go smoothly for you, and you get excellent net!

Well, I hope you enjoy it. Smile It looks like it's going to bring back the golden age of cRPGs where you had to think about the story and fill in the gap of descriptions to your imagination.

I got up this morning at 3.30 and fired up the PC to download it, went back to bed and got up again at 6.30 full of joy and expectation only to see that the bloody GOG downloader had stalled out due to a checksum error. *******

Not happy at all. I fiddled with it but couldn't get it to restart so sent in a support ticket- and in the meantime am manually downloading it. BOO!

I was watching some SCL gameplay yesterday- that looks amazing, the voice overs are really DAOesque with the banter....We can hope, right?

Well, DA:I did suck, and the pro reviews were almost certainly bought...

I've never got it either- and I have quite a few GOG games myself. First the time zone kerfuffle and now this... Cursed I tell you, I'm cursed!

It's doing fine on manual though and in around 2 hrs I will be able to give you my very own opinion! I'll have to find that zoom mod in the interim. I'm not entirely reformed after all. Smile

I LOVE it! I've just got back to find my caravan slaughtered and I cannot believe how visceral the discovery was considering it's mainly text and is isometric. I took a break before fighting the Glanfathan leader because...stress lol! It's great, really really great!

I can see the addiction already. Love my elven rogue too- he's from the pirate archipelago woot!

Thanks for convincing me to give it a try, I'm super glad I listened to you. cheers

I'm glad you love it! If Pillars of Eternity is a financial success, I believe there is more of this from Obsidian coming. Not only that, the guys who made Wasteland 2 are already working on their second RPG Torment, Tides of Numenara.

Just picked up Aloth before I had to feed horses. I think I'm going to like Aloth, he had me at the 'hint of mischief' lol. Smile

The town is so creepy with that hanging tree, I'm kind of working on the get the hell out of here ASAP theory before they try to add my guy to the branches. Shades of Children of the Corn/Run from the Devil/Wickerman...you know, really creepy.

I'm hooked. Smile

Backers have had the opportunity to play the beta for a while now, but the start was not the same and the length was rather limited.

Enjoy ...

Where are our "like" buttons?

Wow, this game is hard! I've died 5 times at the keep so far- damned shadow/phantom/wil'o'the wisp muggers! Loving it! Smile

C'mon Peregrinus, you know you want to play it too... lol!
