There is actually a strong "liked DA2" core of BioWare fans, and even a "not quite small" group who liked DA2 more than DA:O.

"BioWare fans" are not really monolithic. You can't paint with a…

Huh.

My two guys were Norrin and Jay. My two girls were Aria and Mai.

Jay is my generic one.

I hope the game is good, I really do.

But this is not a pre-order for me, and I certainly won't be getting any Collector's Edition.

That bridge has been not only been burned, but atomized and…

Gaider's comment can be technically more true than false
AND
he can be a grade-A sarcastic ASS at the same time.

Both can be (and, in this case, happen to be) correct.

Just a small correction - this isn't a typical demo, it's Early Access. There's a world of difference, with most game demo's dropping really close to release date, and requiring so much extra work…

I have put a little time into it. I am not, personally, a fan of playing unfinished games. Too many betas of MMO's beat any enjoyment out of me. Dead State and Wasteland 2 are games I am wanting…

If you are pretending the character you are playing is NOT the character the game acknowledges, you are engaged in a very special kind of head-canon that has nothing to do with the game. If the game…

This discussion (on POV / camera) can hinge on immersion. Particularly I think it refers to personal immersion, i.e. someone feeling as if they are in the game themself.

1988 had Wasteland, Bard's Tale 3, Batteltech, Ultima V and Pool of Radiance, to name the cream of the crop. At least as good (I'd say better) than 1998, with Baldur's Gate, Diablo and Fallout 2.

2013 was bad. I didn't play most of those, and some that I did I'm hard pressed to consider an RPG (like BioShock.)

So for 2013 I did:

People against Steam just come across to me as people who 'need' vinyl or, worse yet, advocate the gold standard.

Ideology that trumps reality.

Certainly does look to be a ridiculously promising year. And, luckily for my budget, all those KS ones I want are ones I backed so I've got a ton of games coming to me I already paid for!
