Sadly you just seem to be repeating yourself. Moving nothing forward, adding nothing new nor interesting. Hate for the sake of hate for a game you haven't even stated why you're even interested in following the news of.
in the hopes that people will have a real idea of what the game is like before spending their well-earned money.
Don't you realize that you are behaving [removed name-calling]I'm investing no emotions in defining the game, neither of hate or any other. I'm stating objective facts and providing definitions from the official dictionary based on the qualities of the game itself, in the hopes that people will have a real idea of what the game is like before spending their well-earned money.
You are really uninteresting to me both as a reviewer and as a person, so please refrain from citing me to beg for my attention, or pretending you know what my intentions are. It only makes you look more pathetic and desperate than usual.
So, users like @purpleblob1; and others have no clue how the world works. They are selfish. Why I'm saying this? I lurked the talks here back in 2018. @purpleblob1; had harsh complaints about Black Geyser even that time and someone asked her, why she expects the same standards from a game that is not made by Pillars Team, since the team has much smaller resources than that. She answered she doesn't care, there is market competition. So, she had zero sympathy, empathy. People like this are digging the grave of indies.
Ten-fifteen years ago, Baldur's Gate modding Communities lived their golden age. I lurked a lot, even played a bunch of mods. People were honest that time. In that age, people would go now and upvote Black Geyser no matter how many flaws it has. To fight the multi-national game industry like Electronic Arts.
Long time lurker and old-school game here. [lots of words]
That's one hell of a generalisation.
Just because I have harsh opinion on 1 game, apparently I have no sympathy and empathy and killing indie games.
Before making statements like this, take a closer look at other games I play. I love Stardew Valley. I love Winkeltje. I enjoyed Wildermyth. I enjoyed Valheim.
I find way more disgusting people trying to convince others to spend their money on something that's not worth it. More than disgusting, it's despicable. You know who else tries to convince people to spend money on things that are not worth it? Scammers and con-men. Luckily everyone is already aware of it, seeing the number of players this game has on Steam.
Lovely game, reminds me of the RPGs of old (as intended). Enjoyed every bit of it. Also very good and fast support. Really hope to see more of this studio in the future.
Better than POE Deadfire, weaker than Baldur's Gate!!! This Game is a hidden Treasure. It only scratches the itch of Baldur's Gate but it's miles better than Pillars of Eternity (no loredumping or weird races).
A must-have title if you are a CRPG fan. My only critique: the tutorial should be a bit shorter - we CRPG lovers know how to open the inventory
Very nostalgic if you were ever into the CRPGs of the late 90s and early 2000s. I really like the atmosphere and the developers have done an excellent job in crafting a well made game. I hope they continue to make games such as this. Recommended.
I can only assume you are trolling at this point.
Insinuating someone is a scammer because they like a game? How low can you go?
Here are some recent reviews (today and yesterday):
I guess they are all scammers? If you look at the last two months the number of positive reviews have outweighed the negative reviews. It has a summary score of "mixed" - you do know what mixed means right? It means some people will enjoy the game others won't.
It has 278 positive reviews and 113 negative. I'm really not seeing how the data backs up your sweeping statements?
I can only assume you are trolling at this point.
Definitely the target audience of the game, nostalgic people that have no standards and are driven solely by nostalgia.
So when you are on a business trip to close a deal for your employer, you need to help on a beggar that asks food from you (that he shouldn't do anyways but robbing people or collecting non-existing berries in the city if they are hungry)?
I should be the PR guy here but seriously, I'm going to suggest (seriously) the developers to add a little (and mostly harmless) troll with the name "Archangel" to one of the caves in Isilmerald
Back to the topic, did they really make a troll named Archangel? :lol:
Did the greed system "spoil looting" as some were concerned in that thread?
I understand where your criticism comes from and believe that all of us are adult enough to understand what this game is about. I personally have no opinion about the game nor the review. Still, implying that anyone else's taste/standard/opinion is poor, you just make a fool of yourself. You know well that people have different preferences and that the mainstream taste can be fairly tasteless for some. Perhaps use different kind of argumentation in the future.
I always have said that having a taste for poor products is not a crime, and one does not go to jail for it. I have a taste for a certain food item that is of low quality, and not especially healthy. It still has a niche taste I like, feels good, and it's cheap to make. I won't go into details, because who cares, right? It's still a poor taste, and I'd be a fool to think that I have an excellent, quirky taste that others can't appreciate, just to feel better about myself.
I agree with the general sentiment of your post. I only disagree with "making a fool of myself", because that's still unnecessarily defensive, in an attempt to put the blinders on so you don't have to see the reality.
largh said:You see, we all interpret things between the lines differently and in my culture calling other's opinion/taste "poor" is seen offensive although I many times agree that people (other than me) have a poor taste.
But it's going to ruin the thread for anyone looking for details about the game
