I doubt it would be much fun. DSO didn't use a server/client model but peer to peer. So the game didn't run on a server but on the player's PC instead. As a result, it was highly vulnerable to…

Should be the same like System Shock 2. It's not, that Nightdive has the Copyrights now, but they have a licence from all stakeholders to act as publisher. Same for this collection.

There is a reason, why Westwood did Lands of Lore next after EoB2. Westwood never had the rights, it was always SSI. On top of that, you also need a D&D licence from Wizards.

Imo, stat pool interface does not fit, yet.

Dialog UI is a very massive thing, more frame and border than information. That's indeed from the 1990s. I don't think there is much screen space left…

Never liked their humor, either. I think I already criticized it during my Divinity 2 review, imho it's an immersion killer and crude. But as you can see, they didn't change it and I fear they won't…

I don't think a lack of good writers prevented people from pledging for the Bard. I have high respect for MCA, but is he worth 600 000 $?

It's sad, but I think it is the wrong IP. The Bard is some software from the past we've never waited for. Wasteland 2 at least was a game to attract fans of the original Fallout, a game from the 90s….
