    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.

    Brian Adler of Obsidian played the game, not one of the GB guys.

    Same here. I don't have big hopes for combat but at least storyfag in me will be amused.

    IGN also did barbarian, I think that's probably the most good looking/balanced class so they only went with that.

    But IGN comments says Divinity Art is also shit...


    I think they should go for paperdolls in character menu instead of NWN2 like bad 3 character art which was created for isometric view not for upclose view.

    Also character creation menu had good UI.

    I have high hopes from this project for UI design.

    DEATH to editable UI!

    I did like the look of the text quests parts, but I have doubts as to their actual implementation.

    It's great to see a game without a shitty iPad HUD in 2014, too.

    Companions are supposed to have green circles as the default, not blue.

    Why? Is it because they're scripted instead of randomized like in Darklands and KoDP?

    I'm so excited about all those original and non-cliched classes. Fighter, monk, cleric, barbarian - isn't it revolutionary? Josh is true genious.

    They should name it instead Warrior-like, mage-like, monk-like, cleric-like so that you wouldn't be able to complain about standard naming of standard classes.

    Are you saying that Josh designed some standard, DnD-like (and we all know that DnD suck because Josh said so) classes instead of groundbreaking ones? Plain classes in a game made by the greatest visionary among RPG creators? How can you!
