    Ah, all 10,9 and 8, just as I predicted. And, again, there is more words like "Baldur", Baldur's Gate" and "BG" than "Pillars" or "PoE". In fact, all this notes goes to old Bioware game, not to Obsidian. Mysterious power of sentiment...

    No point to get angry man, it's apparently not worth it to rage about this game let alone play it. Take this codex member, i blurred his name to preserve his private life so you cant possibly know who he is, but he dont seems hooked by the game:

    Divinity II already confirmed that the 2 million bar is very hard to reach even with reviews sites praising your games to high heaven. These days if you want to be a sensation you need to pay Pewdiepie or those fortnite streamers to play your game and pretend they're having the fun of their life dicking around with the game mechanisms and trying to start memes instead of completing the objectives.

    Ok. Installed and started the Deadfire. Now on each load it creates new profile category for save files.

    I guess i'll just wait month or two before those balancing idiots release finished game.

    Was the save bug for Pillars of Eternity ever fixed? I played it 2 years ago and it would still take 15 minutes to load the menu or a single save, even a new one, because the more you played the game, the slower the entire program would become. Forever.

    That's some grade A programming. I wonder if Feargus' sister was the seating senior programmer on this one.

    Really? I was a bit sad that my laptop apparently wouldn’t be able to run it since POE runs okish but I might give it a try
    As for the Youtubers, you bet your ass they will give a review copy to George over at SBH and Angry Joe

    Well, the game's opening premise itself is fine. It just when you're trying different characters then it became pretty boring to run through over and over.

    So far, I have played POE2 for 6 hours (Oh, I want to quit my job!! :negative:)
    The melidious musics, a abundant variety of classes, interesting companion banters (especially Edér), and wonderful voice actings...
    from the prologue, it almost immediately catch my eyes.
    For me , at least, POE2 is more like enhanced modern version BG, so I thought POE2 is more to my liking than DOS2.
    But don't get me wrong, they both are amazing CRPGs.

    There are a couple of things which are simply awful:

    - Description text for voices. In fact there is one instance where there is one voice describing the following voice. Honestly it is one of the most useless and annoying things I've encountered which is to read or hear text which doesn't matter at all. If someone is angry you can figure it out by hearing the voice and there is no need for such text. It's like WTF !? Waste of resources for development and time for the player.
    - Genders are all over the place. Maybe this is done with intention or maybe not but there are a lot of NPCs where the portraits are clearly male and the voices/texts are for a "SHE". I ignored this shit at first but then it started to piled up. Not to mention that the head of the pirates, in fact the most powerful NPCs in this world are almost all females. This is SJW pandering of the worst kind.
    - Combat is still awful. I forgot how bad it was and how much I hated the amount of retarded spells. All the fights are turning into small clusterfucks cause honestly most of the time I don't know the reason why I won or lost a fight ... I just spam the most offensive and healing spells and that's about it. It's pretty retarded as the tactical layer is reduced to find a chocking point and bait the retarded mobs to rush you.
    - Looting is awful. Rarely and I do mean rarely you'll find an item which is interesting. Mostly is trash fights with trash loot.
    - Frame drops. The game is doing shit in the background.

    But there are a few good things:
    - It looks good and I mean really good in some places.
    - There are a couple of good dungeons and some multiple-choice quests.
    - No more backer NPCs but still tons of useless text.

    Overall it seems to be more polished than PoE1 but I'm still waiting for the main story to hook me up.

    Delete or move the old saves and just keep the most current ones.

    I had the same issue.

    Some quests are really bugged

    A few save import decisions are fucked too, but I expected as much from Obsidian really

    Game is good

    I guess Infinitron really likes bland shit like PoE. At least say what you like about it.

    Some people said this about Tyranny as well, but I don't see it. I think it's just a fetish for powerful women.

    Anyone have trouble launching the game? I have an FX-8350 and a GTX 970 and when I launch the game I only get the top inch of video??? I'll assume its because I'm a noob for now. Will try re-installing later.
