    So, the first Pathfinder CRPG is not developed by Obsidian. Even more, apparently it's published by My.com, the publisher of Armored Warfare. Is Paizo already a member of exes of Obsidian club?

    Does this Kingmaker have any relation to NWN's Kingmaker?

    Not really promising. Hard to think that combat will be turn-based based on the games they've chosen to mention, and

    If they are using the Patfinder ruleset, I'm sold. It's not 2nd edition AD&D, but at least it is not Dragon Age 2 and 3.

    I'm glad I can choose between whether I "love" or "adore" my companions. Nuanced already!

    True, but if the writting isn't as generic as the visuals, and the combat is good, I take it for sure.

    In other words, they're real-timing it up, and dumbing it down. Guaranteed.

    Looks like mobile garbage.

    Good for what it is.

    Disappointed if it doesn't come out as bland and generic?

    About that. In Obsidians survey about their Pathfinder RPG they posted two artstyles to choose from. On called "Early pathfinder" and the other "later Pathfinder" where the later is the obvious choice to avoid the game looking too generic.

    I like it when any party-based fantasy rpg is released but based on that screenie and the Evil Islands reference, I'd say chances of turn-based are 0.00000000001%. You would think that the success of D:OS would change people's opinion on what's marketable but these people still seem to be convinced that RTwP will increase sales ("while computer RPG gamers will discover their favorite genre in a more contemporary light"). It's a pity, making a good RTwP combat system is 20x more difficult than making a good turn-based one.
