    Fact: People who don't like boob armor are bad people. It is scientifically settled.

    There is a certain spark or purity that exists within the fantasy genre that also comes with the knowing of boob armor, and if you don't understand this you probably don't have a soul.


    Making boob armor great again is making rpgs great again.

    why are you guys arguing about whether random or hand placed loot is better when swen point was about how its cheaper in constantly changing environment.
    True, bg2 had a nice feel about every item being unique, but it was in well defined setting. Before coders started to work you could design weapons and place them in buckets based on their power(+4 weapon being strong for example).

    Larian keep experimenting which I love. As a drawback they need random loot gen to scale to this approach.
    That being said It could have been done differently. Itemization problem in dos1 was about lvl scaling, not randomization. Even if you had hand placed artifacts but had to discard them after 3 lvlups -> you wouldnt like it

    Mostly because "we" don't give a fuck about what's the excuse for it, just about the (poor) quality of the result.
    There's a reason if I highlighted a specific part of his answer.

    I will never hate boob armors as much as horned helms or giant pauldrons.

    Many people (outside of the Codex) actually like or at least don't have a problem with the current setup.

    Couch co-op or bust!

    Well... Honestly, couch co-op or 'my wife will not let me access the PC until she finishes the game', which will force me to play on tablet for weeks or months. Alternatively, I could dig up my old laptop and finally finish Dragon Age Origins. But I would much prefer to play D:OS 2.

    So, couch co-op or Dragon Age!

    Great interview! I'm cautiously optimistic regarding Original Sin 2, Sven does seem to have a handle on things and the GM mode does have the potential to be awesome. Now if only he would rid himself of the delusion of making crpgs for consoles...
