Whey! Great news. That's been on my community wishlist for awhile now. I've had an Activision cd version for years but have never tried to get it going on a newer OS since the XP days. Good ol' GoG…

I've already corrected you once about this: What you say is utterly false and evidenced by new players who are discovering and playing the series for the very first time.

Finally received my Deadfire Collectors Edition today in the mail.

The Obsidian hoodie is a bit thin compared to my Legend of Grimrock one, but it's nice to have.

Well, with all due respect, if you play the base game and first DLC, you'll get plenty of story. :) Give us combat guys some fun too!

I do think the game needs some bigger, harder and more unique combat encounters where more planning is required, so this sounds promising to me on paper.
Although it does make think of the Black…

Amusingly, the trailer made me go back and look at some of my favourite intro cinematics from some related classics. I can sense the kind of tone they were going for.

First love never truly dies ;)

I didn't like the combat in the Beta unfortunately. It was too slow, too tedious and far too limiting. There's a lack of variability in the damage compared to the…

I like MM6 more than MM7, but from my experience from visiting various forums over the years it is the latter which gets the more praise.

I think part of my preference is partially caused by the…

Personally, I quite liked Grieving Mother. I felt the writing generally for her character was one of the more poignant and memorable from the first game. There was a mysterious aspect to her story…

Did I say there was a problem with nostalgia being a factor? Obviously not. I'm simply stating that it is inaccurate to assume that the only reason players are approaching this game and enjoying it…

This is factually inaccurate. Where's @Fluent when we need him to attest to this?

I thought Dishonoured was ok too, but not exciting enough for me to get the sequel.

It depresses me to think that we may not ever see an Arx Fatalis 2; particularly since former president Raphael…

This release has caused some minor frustration on the InXile forums due to the perception that GOG and Steam are getting access before the backers are.

I can confirm that I've had to redo the…
