    *sigh*
    That's the least of poe's problems.

    I haven't played Kingmaker yet (and considering it's apparently 100hours long or smthg, I probably never will), but the things I heard about it makes me think this situation you suggest wouldn't be that paradoxical from a grog standpoint.
    Either rtwp or TB, if one game is more challenging and interesting than the other, it's the superior game. Then again I haven't played Kingmaker, so I'm basing myself on posts from the codex (which I deeply trust and love, obviously).

    "Preserving the legacy of the Infinity Engine games" has always been superficial marketing talk, meant for players with no memory of how these games actually played. In retrospect, what we have as combat mechanics is actually pretty good, but it's not IE games combat mechanics.

    Depends. Some people could find the essence of IE games in the rtwp system coupled with hand-drawn beautiful backgrounds, assembling a party and venturing forth. In this regard, poe is indeed a spiritual successor.

    PS: I absolutely agree on the marketing talk though. But that doesn't justify the rest. You can base your project on the perspective on making quick money to save your company, and that's what happened, and still make something that you believe to fit the pitch.
    Whether obsidian did a good job is another story. But questioning their honesty for something like the absence of the vailian magic and shit... Considering POE's actual problems, if they did go for a carbon copy of how IE games played, they would still get shit (and rightfully so) because POE's actual problems have nothing to do with this. T'was my point.

    In my opinion Deadfire has more in common with New Vegas and Icewind Dale 2 than Baldurs Gate.

    I discovered a secret developer room. From there you can complete any quest, travel to any location, trigger any event, spawn various items, get the submarine & ghost ship, and access testing rooms and cut content

    Example of Cut Content: The original plans for companion Ydwin was that you would meet her at sea, after she cannibalized her entire crew. The scene is even fully voiceacted.

    Best part is that I've found confirmation of a fourth DLC

    Unfortunately I'll be keeping the screenshots to myself until the admins restore my thread posting privileges

    I already know what the fourth DLC is. It is a gender DLC where you can play as whatever genders you want to assign to your characters.

    Is it a Critical Role themed DLC set in Exandria or is it still set in Eora?

    I'm interested to find this out too. Josh mentioned that if you put out a paid DLC long after a game's release then it doesn't matter how good it is, it won't sell well
