Demo and Q+A for the enhanced edition
Flying turtle rock ! I hope they add them to a future game.
Flump had always the simplest solutions to the most complicated problems. Always ask a flying turtle if you need advice ^^
Well stop being a chump and get paid !
And here I am playing games for free like a chump.
Hum. You know people do get paid to game....
A desktop would be even more like work.
Then use a desktop :)
I plan on trying the console version if the game works with a controller. There is nothing wrong with keyboard and mouse but I feel like I should be working when I sit at my laptop - so I can't enjoy PC games :(
Well I'm going to play the EE version with kb/mouse :) I played once and was going to play a second time but have been waiting all this time for the story rewrite (which I thought would be out 8 months ago :) ). I'm not going to fly there to try the controller version; I'm clueless dope with controllers. Can't really see why anyone would play a game with a controller; consoles should have mouse/keyboard !
So is anybody going to go try the EE? I am curious how the the game controls with a controller. I'd go myself but I cannot stand mayonnaise on my french fries.
Hum. Maybe they will release the EE version early. Wouldn't that be swell ?
@keya - a lot of game developers are lazy and they try to develop a single interface for both keyboard/controllers. I think what Larian did is they developed a sep interface for the controller. It shares a lot of elements with the keyboard/mouse interface but so far I've not seen indications they have crippled the keyboard/mouse interface for the sake of the controller. I remember seeing another game 4 or 5 years ago that did this sort of thing but most games have a pretty crappy keyboard/mouse interface when they optimze for the controller.
Tactical RPG fans attention! Check out this sweet JRPG game with a Disgaea meets Persona formula and a western twist on the classic strategy JRPG genre. :)

@Kaya - The controller-optimized controls are for the controller, that's rather the point. They're for the controller to compensate for the PC's easier-to-use mouse. I don't think the mouse version of the controls has changed enough to need testing.
@Kaya. Even if most people will use the mouse and keyboard, they already have a lot of feedback on that setup from people playing the vanilla game. I'm sure they did not have to make huge changes to the mouse and keyboard controls.
I get that they want to let people fool around with controllers. But i wish they would search testplayers to try out the controller optimized controls with a keyboard. Because in my opinion most of the players will stick to the Pc version with the oldschool mouse and keyboard.
Kaya, controllers will work with the new enhanced edition, so we'll have that option on PC too.
I used to love kb+m combo, and for some games I still prefer it, but lately sitting in a couch and playing with a gamepad has become more of a regular thing for me, I guess that's what people call "getting old", eh? Nothing quite like dat soft cosy fabric under my hairy ass :3
because they want to test their xbox/ps4 port with split screen. controllers are not my thing but i believe that is the jist of it.
Why are they doing the testing with controllers? I can't play with them -.-
New update !
Dragon Commander as turn-based combat? Ugh, no. That would not be good. At all. If you don't have that speed and freedom of movement, there's no point to being a dragon.
Not that I'm worried about that happening. Dragon Commander is dead.
I do completely agree with the companions backstory mostly being a sudden, one-time moment before fading back into the background. I think that might partly be due to Larian's inexperience with games which have party members combined with inexperience in fixed backstories.
Hum. One thing I wonder is they will do a better job with the companions backstory in the EE version. I liked the idea but the actual implementation wasn' that great in D:OS. I.e, the companions have a single 'moment' when the backstory kick in that last a very short period and poof it is over. It would be more interesting if it had a greater longer term impact on their developemtn and actions as well as resolution.
Oh - I don't trust companies on blind fate. Don't take me wrong Larian has done a fantastic job both with the games they dveloped and support but I am less happy with some other companies that were previously great. It just that as a company gets more successful they get larger and that can create issues (esp if they go public). Very very few companies manage to stay personal as they get larger. With luck Larian will be one of them but after getting burned once too often I'm just not into blind faith. Also Dragon Commander could use some improvemtns :) Would love it if they turn the combat aspect into tbs like D:OS.
Whatever Larian does, it will be awesome. TBH, I have more faith in Larian than any other developer out there. Whatever comes after EE, I'm certain it will be awesome.
I am really looking forward to what Larian will do after EE.
Here are some other parts of with him
maybe you can write to Larian, they will have it for sure somewhere. i hope they will post it because i want to listen to it, too. he was so great :(
Does anyone know if the video of the post-kickstarter party is still available anywhere - The one from Twitch? After todays news, I felt like watching it to cheer myself up, but I couldn't find it - Either here or on Twitch... Help?
RIP Kirill :(
I always knew I'd come back to this comment thread, I just never imagined it would be for so incredibly sad reason. Incredibly sad.
Hope you guys and galls are doing alright.
Yes, and he gave a soul to larian's jewel.
RIP Kirill :(
he will live on through his music
Fyi: Kirill passed away:
I imagine the time frame would be narrowed at E3 from "definitely this year" to "definitely later this year".
I don't know if a date will be announced then, but the timeframe may be narrowed down.
I think they said they would give a release date during E3 which is in something like 2 weeks and a little ?
Update ! Update !! We want an update on the release date !!!
Probably 31.December ^^
Definitely this year
I guess August 12th.
The ETA is still "some months", but the release will be "definitely this year".
I guess February 15, 2016
There should be a contest for correctly guess date of EE being available !
Good news !!!
Good studio still exist !!!
Update ! Update !! We want an update !!!
i'm more keen to see how the changed the quest/ storyline and how the ending is changed with it
Not sure; never played on a console or with a controller...
We(resheeps) are everywhere :)
