Also, sometime between NWN2 and PoE, Obsidian figured out how to make a good, responsive interface.

Found the solution to the crashing...had to delete a Windows font. Strange but true, apparently many people were having this issue

Wow, they really are trying to emulate the BG games though. My 1st level wizard can cast a single first level spell per day...

You also get an ability to channel raw magic as a small AoE 2x per encounter.

Also, remember that spell failure is not a thing. You can wear armor and equip a sword as a lowbie wizard, just nothing in your off-hand because of your spellbook.

Also! Wizards here cast like D&D sorcerers. You cast x number of times per spell level, even though you can learn from scrolls and swap spell out of combat.

Does this RPG let you be a real asshole like the renegade options in Mass Effect?

I love that this is your metric for whether to buy a game or not.

What can I say I like a good anti-hero. Witcher FTW.

It lets you do a lot more than that.

See I like options like that. It's like in certain spots of ME2/ME3 where if you had enough Renegade points you could seriously affect certain outcomes.

I challenge anyone to find one paragon option that wasn't totally underwhelming, all the cool scenes were Renegade options.

Enjoyed it a bit, but it hasn't really grabbed me.

It's fun, in a retro kind of way, some nice features (thank science mages can wear protection and stab shit), but combat is underwhelming so far. Just doesn't have much oomph, DA's combat had more a fun feel to it, maybe I'm just playing it wrong as a Paladin, might retry as a rogue or wizard and see if it's more entertaining.

So far, kind of like an 80's disco. Amusing, retro kitsch that doesn't really add anything new or challenge any preconceptions. You come away having had some fun but with a nagging sense you could have done something much more interesting or challenging with your time.

Also it annoys the hell out of me that Might (Strength) is the most important attribute for Wizards. Bigger muscles = more powerful spells

Yeah, that totally makes sense. Hopefully someone releases a mod which fixes that asap!
