I think that until FROM keeps struggling to understand what exactly made DeS and DaS 1 such a cult hit, they will keep missing their mark as they did in DaS 2. That said, even the sequel is a lot of…

I'm afraid the Dragonlance days, and the Dark Sun days, and the Planescape days are over for CRPGs and we only have the usual Bore Coast thingy. Better than nothing I suppose, but image a modern,…

But whyyyyyyyy Forgotten Realms again?

Don't answer, I know all too well how it's the most popular (read: shallow, run-of-the-mill high fantasy setting anyone could have come up with) and thus the…

So just for the record, 'Dethmold' is a character from the novels, so the name is from Sapkowski, and all that aside, I have no idea what the hell's the RPS guy's problem with it.

As for the rest,…

I have had no problem with the English translations to be honest, but like I said, you do notice some odd structures that come from the difference between the origin and target languages (ie English…

I agree on losing much in translation, even though I don't speak Polish. And the Last Wish is one of the best translations of all the books, mind.

As for SoIaF, I probably sound bitter because I…

What a terrible, terrible video.

What did he really compare? The video game Witcher 3 and a series of books? The Witcher 3 and SoIaF games? The Witcher books and Martin's convoluted, bloated…

Don't let the old-school representation fool you, this game is vast and has tons of content that would put several AAA titles to shame. It is also much more original than anything I've seen in the…

As far as I can tell, apart from the writing style, Sunless Sea is nothing like Fallen London.

And yes, if you buy it before release, you'll get all future content. How much that'll be I'm not…

There wasn't much, but even so he never read the tutorial. Nor did he realize that noone's gonna tell him where to find stuff, because part of the game's challenge is to explore and find trade…

Yea, well, you can switch off the rogue-like aspect, so to say, like I did, and play it as a non-rogue-like.

Afterwards you can save at any time in ports (even during story choices), but you lose…

The first half of the video has some interesting and less well-known insights about how DS2 handles difficulty.

That said, no matter how much I still like DS2, it still got as many things right…

In English, they're only translated up until - and including - Baptism of Fire. The rest is not even in the works.
Or is there a Polish speaking majority at…

Can you point out where she did what you wrote she did? I just finished reading the novels available in English, and the synopsis of the rest, and I don't remember anything like that.
