    It sounds amazing, but I want to know more. A lot of this was just a more structured explanation of what we already know.Looking through it, I hope they don't sacrifice too much depth for breadth. All this talk of riding hovertanks and customizable weapons is making me fear that.

    Am I dreaming? If they're not using dialogue choice conversation system, the butthurt will be hilarious.

    Sounds good. Almost too good in fact.
    I wonder if with their budget they can actually afford to implement everything he's promising.

    I guess I'd have liked more examples in game (and maybe screenshots? or is that too early) but the new Wallpaper is fucking sweet and the vision document says everything I'd want to hear.

    Lots of fapping

    They said "can" type in keywords, not "must" type in keywords. See: Fallout

    Possible hammer blows:

    1) Bugs (no money for QA)
    2) Smaller/shorter game than people will expect (no money to make it bigger)

    only bugs...

    even if they make a shorter lasting game - which wouldnt be a completely bad idea - there are mod tools and there is expansions.

    I'm expecting it to be as long as Fallout 1, if it ends up being longer then that's just gravy.

    And of course mod tools and expansions would be awesome too.

    All of it sounds fantastic. This is my most anticipated game in a long time.

    Yeah, or lack of polish in general (no money for playtesting)

    Although the public beta (for Kickstarter pledgers anyway) will help mitigate that

    1. Bugs, well hopefully it won't have much, but even if it does, there are patches, and frankly I'd rather it has bugs and is overall a good game that I've been waiting for years, than a polished boring turd (read Diablo 3).
    2. I don't think the game will be small, because in the vision document he mentions hundreds of NPCs with which you can interact, and I don't think he's lying. Even if it is shorter than expected there are expansion packs etc.
    3. See 1. + What Infinitron said

    [edit]

    Pity hiver will never see this. I scored a critical hurt on his butt yet, having been told off by BC, his white knight syndrome prohibits him from retorting with anything but his ignore list.

    Having reached his ignore list before being photoshopped into his human centipede, I hereby declare myself winner of our blood vendetta.

    They say on the commercials, that if you still have a boner after 4 hours, you should go to the hospital.






    I need to go to the hospital.

    this will be rectified on the gunz front and regarding mobs via modding quite readily I'd expect

    as for skills, if there isn't a thread about that I will probably insist on comparable levels between all skill checks with a strongly worded post and that should make take care of problems no need to thank me

    Brian should really stop trying to be funny because he's not.

    Other than that, good shit. I'm looking forward to Baldur's Gate 3: Wasted Earth.

    Bands of wasteland killer clowns are apparently funny to him.
