ah

2016-11-12 04:48:22 UTC  

that's the thing I heard

2016-11-12 04:48:32 UTC  

that basically the best solution to every situation

2016-11-12 04:48:34 UTC  

is melee guys

2016-11-12 04:55:12 UTC  

because the balance is shit

2016-11-12 04:55:16 UTC  

MAN

2016-11-12 04:55:19 UTC  

I always have

2016-11-12 04:55:23 UTC  

super fond memories of the BG2 expansion

2016-11-12 04:55:34 UTC  

that's the high water mark for CRPGs, I think

2016-11-12 04:55:58 UTC  

I know it's why I look with disdain on a lot of modern "HEY WE CAN MAKE A CRPG TOO!" shit

2016-11-12 04:56:04 UTC  

no

2016-11-12 04:56:06 UTC  

the balance is really good

2016-11-12 04:56:09 UTC  

oh?

2016-11-12 04:56:12 UTC  

but its too good

2016-11-12 04:56:14 UTC  

nothings really broken

2016-11-12 04:56:15 UTC  

or stands out

2016-11-12 04:56:23 UTC  

sawyer balanced things

2016-11-12 04:56:25 UTC  

2 an extreme

2016-11-12 04:56:35 UTC  

I remember how fucking broken Carsomyr was in BG2

2016-11-12 04:56:44 UTC  

fucking +5 two-handed sword with innate protection from evil

2016-11-12 04:56:50 UTC  

and you could upgrade it to a +6

2016-11-12 04:56:58 UTC  

also I think it had built-in haste or something else totally fucked

2016-11-12 04:59:43 UTC  

I have Wasteland 2, too

2016-11-12 04:59:45 UTC  

I heard mixed things

2016-11-12 04:59:50 UTC  

It was in a humble monthly at some point

2016-11-12 04:59:54 UTC  

🤷

2016-11-12 04:59:55 UTC  

wasteland 2 is a slow start

2016-11-12 04:59:58 UTC  

not awful though

2016-11-12 05:00:01 UTC  

I got caught up with like

2016-11-12 05:00:07 UTC  

I heard character creation is full of pitfalls

2016-11-12 05:00:12 UTC  

and there's a bunch of shit that's totally worthless

2016-11-12 05:00:25 UTC  

and unlike Fallout, speech skills are all terrible

2016-11-12 05:00:25 UTC  

Thats most crpgs if we're being honest

2016-11-12 05:00:29 UTC  

yes

2016-11-12 05:00:45 UTC  

and then after a bunch of time reading shit

2016-11-12 05:00:50 UTC  

I just wound up reinstalling Fallout 2

2016-11-12 05:00:52 UTC  

and playing that instead

2016-11-12 05:00:56 UTC  

🤷

2016-11-12 05:00:58 UTC  

what's this "speech" shite

2016-11-12 05:01:00 UTC  

just kill the dudes

2016-11-12 05:01:02 UTC
