    Can't you losers talk about RPGs instead of your retarded politics all the time? You're like a cult. It's so aggravating to scroll through here looking for hardass RPG talk and you incel reprobates can't seem to talk about anything. else. This game apparently has shit tons going on with multiclassing, subclasses, subraces, non-combat skills, open-world travel, C&C, factions, and reactivity, and all I can get out of you cum-stained hentai addicts is a bunch of bullshit about ugly female portraits and gay people.

    Just shut the fuck up already. How is the RPG part?

    But thats kind of the problem. The RPG part in this game is a LGBT drama with shit main story. And its sad because I genuinelly liked the mechanics and art style. This ruins it though. Oh well...
    Also all this came to me only after 3 - 4 hours of playing (writing was shit but i still had hopes) so there is no chance of refund of course. I swear they did that on purpose :D

    Fortunately talk of "incels" never gets old either +M

    I can recommend the main discussion thread though, it's full of meaty, hard-hitting analysis

    Hmmmm, "why?" you ask. Maybe because ideology is important part of creation and interpretation? Maybe because we live in very politically times? Maybe because context is important? Maybe because analysis is much more interesting than game? Maybe we just can?

    Ah yes, everybody asking questions about reality is "incel". Better stop asking questions and be proud ignorant.

    People who are afraid being called "incels", "racist", "morons" are easy to control.

    You sound so impartial and superior with that speech. Only that’s nothing further from the truth and the truth is this: SJWs are terrible writers and even worse game designers. You can’t deny that this is an Obsidian game that presents a story, with companions and dialogues. If these elements are ruined by activism, it’s part of the blame. The factions are disjointed. This talk about mechanics on the other hand is strange because the game is piss-easy so this and the improvements in itemization are all for nothing. You can just as well larping that you are playing a tactical game. The combat is a mess and the fights end fast with you steamrolling over your enemies.

    Projection is the first resort of leftists.

    He isn't wrong though. Dex got really annoying lately with this anti-sjw shit, people getting triggered left and right, foaming at the mouth about some random bs without even playing the game... pot meet kettle and all that. The only outright WTF moment in Deadfire is that fishboy watershaper, when 3 out of 4 lines in your first dialogue are dick related, I finished the game and didn't see anything else that can be considered SJW propaganda and even that fish most likely ended up the way it did due to Feargus directive to 'sex things up'.

    Game itself is alright, core mechanics are actually good and well implemented, combat flows way better than the first, so that part of the game I enjoyed quite a lot. New systems however, in truly obsidian fashion (shit first attempts, but solid improvement on their second try, see every other obsidian game for reference) are very barebones (ships, islands and such). Writing is so-so with exception of background and lore which are actually quite decent. Main story line is very short and while premise is interesting by itself it's not very well framed or properly explored, same goes for every other major plot line (factions and the like). Obsidian need good writers to make something great with their 3rd attempt and said writers need time and room to work. Also the game might have been way better if they canned the Eothas plotline completely and focused instead on plundering and political strife. Since in order to explore themes his questline brings you need to dedicate to it a way bigger chunk of the game and completely change the approach to how dialogues are constructed. As it is you have very limited (if not basic) options like do that or don't to that, instead of going at it PST style, when every piece of the puzzle rises more questions than answers.

    TL;DR game's worth a try, a solid adventure that's much closer in spirit and feel to IE games, than the first PoE.

    Maybe that's because usually sjw loads somehow go hand-to-hand with tinker-bell level writing?

    Holy water, the cross and the rite of exorcism should do the trick.

    He ascended beyond a mere concept of gender.

    He is now the balancing force in the universe. Like karma, only from San Francisco.

    It's like Anakin Skywalker. To balance the force he has to

    1) kill all the light side stuff aka fun games
    2) then become the dark side aka PoE
    3) ?????
    4) Incline prophet?

    It's kinda ironic that FreeKaner made an example of a quality other than physical attractiveness that makes a woman hot, only to have someone reduce women back to physical attractiveness.
