So, they made the best part of the game trivial now?
I was going to leave it alone, but that's just stupid. You don't market your opportunism as an homage and then do something like that.
I used to love how the early parts would kick your ass if you weren't careful, and how you slowly evolved from weaklings to a respectable party. In fact, it's one of the things I love about classic RPGs in general - in much the same way I love the Gothics.
Of course, I'm "elitist" and "sad" enough to actually enjoy a challenge now and then.
Not only is this EE an amateur hour bunch of code with half-assed UI changes and cutscenes (with some removed, even) - they've also decided to change some of the fundamentals?
Also, is it true that the added Arena content is separate from the main game? As in, you can't find it in the main campaign map? If so, that's just sad.
Yet, people who already own the BGs and have access to fully modded and upgraded versions gleefully handed over 20$ for this cash-grabbing travesty. Sigh….
