    Love it.

    Though i hope those red choices will be hidden unless you have the skill. There is nothing more stupid than to show choice you can't fucking make and it also destroys next play-trough as you know what you can expect having for example high inteligence or being thief.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it was an option. (Or is requested and granted as such during beta)

    It looks beautiful - I really like the art design and the animations looked nice.

    I fucking hate the RTwP... I'm just looking at that wishing it was TB.

    It's cool that you can see the item sets you don't have equipped on the character model. Fighter is going to be a bloody pack mule.

    That one wolf fight brought the girl to ~50% HP :lol:

    I couldn't really see any indicators for engagement, were they going to put circles or something to show a creatures "threat" area? I did notice the player intentionally triggering engagement attacks to show it off at the end though.

    Yeah imo this is probably to show people/journalists how many choices there are if they choose other classes.

    edit:

    also 60fps video !

    Looks awesome, I will probably take a week of sick leave when the game comes out :smug:

    Turn based sucks, it totally ruins the Metaphysics of the game world.

    Very intriguing! So similar to BG.

    The battles are really uninteresting, though, but that can hopefully be attributed to them being so early in the game. I'd like to see some more complex combat from later in the game.

    I learned to love TB combat, but i really like RTwP if its well executed. So i don't really care, im confident it IS very well executed in PoE.

    It boggles my mind. Do people genuinely like the looks of 3D over 2D that looks like high quality paintings? Is this the reason why CGI is so fucking popular nowadays?

    Divinity's art design is shit, as evident by IGN commenters praising it.
    PoE doesn't need a goofy WoW aesthetic.

    On the art I'm glad that the characters look like normal humans in this game and not steroid abominations or anorexic hobos.

    Video impressions: crap combat, utterly uninspired character creation, vendor and inventory UI is horrible and Sawyer is a gigantic faggot.

    Oh yeah, and you fight wolves and spiders.

    Disagree on character creation, I think it looks good, I'm just sad that it's RTwP. All those race and class options with the balanced attribute system would be pretty cool in a game with TB combat.

    Exactly the jittery awkward RtwP combat everyone expected but otherwise looks fun.
