    Some thoughts from around 12 hours into the game:

    The story, setting and characters have been fun so far and show promise of continuing to be so. I wish they hadn't started the first couple of...

    Yeah, pretty much the same with druids, I was hoping for something a little more exciting than wolf/bear/stag/cat/boar. Not a biggie, and I went with druid anyway because it best fitted what I wanted...

    Cats will wag their tails when hunting or playing as well, it's not a sign of distress. As for the litter box thing, it's never going to be completely hassle-free, so either accept that you need it...

    I haven't gotten very far in Pillars of Eternity yet, but if you value story highest then Pillars is probably the better bet. D:OS has great turn-based combat, really fun systems to play around with...

    I was really glad to see it get funded, then stayed away from all information bar a few screenshots and didn't even know the release was upon us until last week, so it feels a little like a sudden...

    Real life has conspired against me such that I probably won't get more than an hour's worth of play time this evening. Should be enough to make a character at least.

    I'd say plot and characterisation have shone through even with their wonkiest and most publisher-mangled games (KotOR2 etc). Even if this turns out to be one of those, at least this time they own the...

    I still have no idea what you can play, which feels kind of exciting. I usually have the good luck of picking a class, then more or less immediately getting a follower of that same class and feeling...

    I just saw the 14GB install requirement and figured about half that for a compressed download. Pretty close, and 6 gigs isn't a biggie these days.



    You have inflamed my desires.

    GOG are usually pretty good when it comes to bandwidth and the game isn't humongous, so as long as their servers don't suddenly melt or you're on an ancient connection the "penalty" for not...

    I found the music insufferably boring and the visuals just a bunch of busy noise, so all in all a vacuous tech demo. Perhaps I'm just old and grumpy and don't understand the appeal of these...

    I caved and pre-ordered from GOG after John's video the other day (other than that I've ignored any and all spoilers about it). I've sworn off pre-ordering stuff, but the odds of me not buying this...

    I see sci-fi as just another subset of fantasy and I don't get why there's any need for a distinction between hard and soft sci-fi. How much you want to explain of how your stuff works and how much...

    You do? Space is huge, but it's also mostly empty. Proxima Centauri is 4 light years away, there's nothing much from here to there and that's just a minuscule little hop away by galactic standards....
