We gettin a review?
2018 and I bought this for the Split-screen.
The game looks so much better now with the Enchanced Edition! One of my favorite games ever! Joe you should make a review for this game even after all this years.. you owe it to this guys, since they made such an amazing work on a Kickstarter game you funded as well! If you like Pillars of Eternity, you will rate a 10/10 to this game
The only litle prob i got whit this game is the lack of Small Window tutoriel to say what the Elemental go whit other elemental (sure for the most part you know but sometime you don' t thing you will get blow up by a fire but you are in some smoke and you blow up... any way other than that it awesome just a bit slow to lvl up (well at less at low lvl we are just lvl 4 right now))SORRY FOR THE BAD ENGLIS but this game is awesome any way.
cool to see how far this game progressed.
Just got the Enhanced Edition. It's a Ultima combined with Fable, a bit of Final fantasy, some Bard's Tale, Fallout 1, it's fucking amazing. I love Pillars but I never beat it, one of the reasons being because of my customization OCD. Example: priests are the only decent healers in Pillars. In Divinity, there's FAR more customization options available, not to mention classes. I couldn't believe how much detail they put it in. I haven't beaten it, but I keep expecting the details to stop and the game to be half assed right after the intro area, like MOST games these days.....But the quality just doesn't let up. Seriously buy it! Also: THE EDITOR.
lordaere pillars has superior writing and tone but divinity was just much more well rounded in all areas
I like Pillars of Eternity better, but this was definitely worth the money and time. It's less Baldur's Gate/Planescape:Torment...and more Fallout 1 & 2.
+William Faulkner I like the re-edition of this a lot more than Pillars of boring :-D.
make a review for the enchanced edition since you didn't made one a year ago! :D
hey why dont you do a agryreview for divinity Definitive Edition?
Not sure why he didn't just compare it to Baldurs Gate or Planescape: Torment instead of Diablo 3 or Torchlight. It's much closer to the CRPGs of old than the action RPGs we see a lot of now.
but when i disagree or try convinceing someone i get a rock paper siccors battle then when guards catch me they try killing me!
i don't see the review!
What role types are they using here?
But wait, aren't the players of this game too *stupid* to use the editor? Oh wait that's Battlefield, my mistake...
this game looks brilliant
Says he will do review of game when it comes out... never does review.
+koffinkat666 At least we know his score to it is close to Pillars of Eternity thanks to his review of it. lul
I'm from the future guys................He never did
Hope he does for II.
+cleveridea I agree!
+Madison Baldwin joe needs staff! quicker shorter reviews, but I think he does so many thinks and does such a thorough job of reviews he gets backlogged
is there a review of this game
diese scheiss verfickte DRECKSWERBUNG
Wait ! These guys are Belgian???? Holycrap did not know my country produced this !
+MrOlliguitarMatters to me, since not much that my country produces is worth talking about. On game level that is
+mesothorium what does it matter?
I like the some of the beta's graphics more than the current ones. ;-;
I love Turn-Based Strategy RPGs, I need to buy this. So far XCom: Enemy Unknown/Within was the best Sci Fi TBS I played and Wasteland 2 was the best Post-Apoc TBS I've played. Is this game the best of the Fantasy TBS games?
it looks like it have very low FPS. it is that way?
+Alphoter There are graphic options to increase fps. I only have fps issues on my mac, but hey, it's a mac.
I played D:OS for 10 hours only to get my ass handed to me and to be so frustrated I almost uninstalled the game... then I restarted knowing tremendously more about how to play the game and have been having a blast ever since. In a way, I'm kind of appreciative that this game doesn't hold your hand at all, and it gives it more depth than any other RPG I've played thus far. It's challenging and frustrating like hell, but it's very rewarding
crpgs like diablo or torchlight? wtf?
Did this game ever get a proper review?
no, but he talk about it in his top 10 games 2014
Divinity Original Sin got GameSpot's PC Game of the Year!
ok wheres the unsubscribe to ahh there is is i thort you had good taist go figer lol........every one to there own i guess "LET DIABLO DIE!!" or we might as well go back to playing pacman
Reading the comments, it's a shame that some people only think of JRPGs like Final Fantasy when they think of turn based systems and have no other basis for comparison. There are plenty of Western RPGs that used turn based combat. Fallout is probably the most well known example.
Ok I just see its 8 hours since my last post on this game. I have to admit I gave it another try. played around 10 hours and must say its brilliant. You really need to get into it and it takes time. I think for me like 8 hours with lots of exloring till lvl 5. This is the best rpg in a decade!
+Chrisv1965 POE is deff not better then Diablo 3 especially after 2.3
+Stayler17 Im loooking forwrd to this...
+Chrisv1965 Once I got through most of what the first town had going on and started to see the end of the area coming I also began to love the game. I got worried the whole thing was just in CYSEAL CYSEAL
+Chrisv1965 Torment: Tides of Numenera
+Stayler17 You mean the new Torment league or is there a entire new game?
Everyone loves this game but me. I dont know it looks good I got it. I a huge rpg fan and loved baldrus gate 2 , DA origins , skyrim, Diablo 2 etc etc. torchlight (ok thats more hack n slay)isnt bad either. But I cant help myself I dont like divinity. Tunr based combat ok no problem with that. My biggest issue is that most dialoges are not voiced while you can here banter in towns everywhere from NPC's. I cant get over all the reading. I tried and tried but this is not for me
I know what you mean. I am completely illiterate and proud of it. When I think of all those novels I've read and what a waste of time it has been...
Theatre of the mind, bro... Theatre. Of. The. Mind. :)
+Andrew Black Kids need to read more, I'll just say that.
You like Baldur's Gate 2, but you're biggest beef is no voice acting?
+Elric Waldendont get me wrong, i like games with voice acting, but im not going to judge a game for not having it bc im too lazy to read.... but iv been playing games for a long time, zelda, pokemon, older elder scrolls games. great games that didnt/dont need voice acting. again i feel like people who read slow tend to not like reading in games bc its time consuming. so rather then become a better reader, they just avoid the game, and thats lazy.
Holy shit i can't believe how much better the game looks now compared to this. That kickstarter boost really did wonders.Anyway, still waiting for the full review. I get the delay because it's a big-ass game, but it's been 2 months since release. I'm loosing hope.
Joe smokes weed doesn't he?
3 years ago I woulda threw the game in the bucket, but after playing baldur's gate and many other turn based RPGs I might try and pick this game up! I really like the story and depth they put in these games, along with the capability of actually ROLE PLAYING to get IMMERSED, not focusing on the game to fucking spoon feed me EVERYTHING, I really can't stand certain "Role Playing Games" (skyrim) where I can't get immersed because it forces me to play THEIR way instead of try to role play MY way, this breaks the flow of the game for me! and honestly out of ALL the elder scrolls games, skyrim was the MOST CASUAL GAME OF THE FRANCHISE!
Play Skyrim in third person, at least that feels more dynamic for combat
if someone has this game can u pls add me on steam and share it to me? ill love u forever
I've tried playing many rpgs in last few years, and always felt like I couldn't get into those anymore or just grew out of the likes of Baldur's Gate or Planescape Torment. I tried playing Dragon Age, and dropped it like, maybe after an hour. This game, however, seems to have re-ignited my passion for RPGs. I've been playing it non-stop last couple of weeks, spending all my free time on it, and I feel like I'm playing BG or Planescape, or Icewind Dale again. It's truly captivating and has that magical, warm feeling of old-school RPGs, that literally sucks you in. Great job, Larian. I've heard of Divinity series since long time ago, but never played any of them. I guess I should. AJ, you should give a proper review of an updated, full version that's been released.
Playing it now and it's awesome!
aff, no review
Already finished! This was the best RPG i ever played!
This game rocks!!Only problem is, it's like impossible to stop playing...
yeah, joe, it was actually a good initiative man, and we can actually talk with more ease with you, bra. It looks like a well thought game, i enjoy games with deep strategies and planning accordingly to tactical exploits. I'll try the game
wheres the review brah?
worst rpg ever, only 2 companion,rock - paper sucks,slow progress killing,journal sucks, no quest shower (dont know where to go and who would speak), enemy always above your lvl and outnamber you,dialogue sucks,companion feeling sucks,control companion dialouge sucks,you can't decide to help evil no matter what you do at the end you r gonna be a good guy, game is soulless, Larian create this game like a robot no feeline no soul just mechanic thinking (if evryone need old school lets give them old school and take their money and cheat them) Larian you r lazy, do you think this game is rpg and think like baulder's gate?,this game like a shit not likwebaldur' gate. You need to learn a lot of thing and work hard and dont forget to put some soul when you make a game.
+Sabcio1234 where you don't need to do anything at all? you do realize that endgame diablo and like games generally require gear + skill its just so fast paced that you forget all the little details.
Dude its an old Shool RPG!! a real RPG not Diablo or other similar crap where you dont need to do anything at all .This one is a bloody definition of RPG game
come play with me here me ID HTLCTDU6622AD i am levl 181
We need the review!!!!Belgium represent!
alpha looks different. nice
Cool bro! Looking forward to your proper review!
Bought this game 2 days ago and it is AMAZING! It is so easy to get lost it in and the hours just fly by. I'm talking 8 hours at a stretch fly by. I think I spent the first 4 hours just in the starting town before even heading out into the wilderness. It is definitely reminiscent of Baldur's Gate. I hope Joe does a review of the game in it's finished state. It looks soo much better than the alpha and as a bonus the soundtrack is really good as well.
I spent 13 hours just questing in the starter town before even thinking of leaving
is it worth getting better than Skyrim
Good preview. Just bought it. It's awesome. I love the turn based combat. It allows you to use your brain and think tactically. It's a nice change from mindless hack and slash. The interactivity is amazing and the interplay of the elements is a nice addition.
he said on this review that he gonna review the game if the game come out...but i highly doubt that....
I ADORE this game. It fully released yesterday and have been playing it most of the day.
Joe the game is coming out in less than a week now. You gotta do a review this game is SO good !
+Mat G no review :(
looks like neverwinter nights
+Martius come play with me here me ID HTLCTDU6622AD i am levl 181
Still its pretty big downgrade after Baldurs Gate (no party members, just not controllable companion which gets better stuff after getting a level? come on...) and combat is typical grindfest. Its pretty much good tool to make mods and modules but strangely people call it one of best rpg. Divinity is different league if we are talking about interaction. In most game you cant do anything with crates for example. Here you can freely move them around, stack one on another and so on.
like i said it has more sandbox elements in it interacting with environmental objects/npc's. but overall i like this kind of games more than your typical grindfests....its more story driven + idk how/why they did it but you can talk with people on chat even when u play singleplayer mode....quite cool
Just like NN. Each act is pretty much just going to four directions and killing everything. If it looks like anything them its Baldurs Gate or Divine Divinity plus party and turn based combat.
NN had more depth in gameplay...diablo is slaughterhouse...you just go kill stuff
Nice evolution from Divine and Beyond Divinity, can't wait.
Can't wait for this game to come out
Not a fan of the turn-based combat... and this video shows why exactly - the battle, which would have took like 30-60s in real time, is stretched to like 10 minutes in turn-based... Plus, unsynchronised turns (where everyone has their own turn, instead of everyone moving at the same time) is just not balanced...
Yeah the art of representing reality using abstraction and limited controls we have in games is a fascinating subject. Thanks for keeping everything civil. It's a great discussion with you. :)
I don't think that's how you should define real time or turn-based. A simple way of separating the two is in real time games, you can immediately react to your opponent's actions using your own commands (which both BG and EOTB allow you to do). I can see where you are going with the ATB from Final Fantasy, but to me it is more or less real time. Think of it as a really weak person that has to rest a set amount of time every time he does something. If he gets into a fight it would essentially resemble that of an ATB combat. It is totally possible for him to react immediately after his opponent does something. It's slow-paced, yes, but still follows the principles of real time combat. A turn-based game doesn't allow immediate reaction. You must wait until it is your turn to issue any orders. Without the necessity & possibility at immediate reaction, turn-based combat is purely cereberal. There is no need to have any twitch response at all hence it tends to focus more on tactics.
I have already explained to you why the 6 seconds clock is NOT turn based. Go back and read it if you still don't understand. Go check the definition of turn-based games if you want. Come up with an example of turn based game that works the same way like BG. Hint: you can't. As for your belief that BG is fine the way it is, well that is your opinion, just like mine, so we will agree to disagree.
Alright let me write this out nice and slowly so no one would have any confusions on my stance. My opinion is BG would be a better game as a turn based game, but unfortunately the fact is it is NOT a turn based game.
Yes it's relevant when you coop and don't want to pause every 5 seconds but it's unnecessary if Bioware used traditional turn-based combat. Not to mention the fact that proper real-time micromanagement for a game as complex as Baldur's Gate is an UNREASONABLE expectation, especially for your typical classic CRPG players who do not usually play games that require 300 APM. That's my point about turn-based combat being better when the tactical depth and complexity of the game is high. You don't need to have Korean dexterity or a very sturdy spacebar to excel in it. What you need to have is a tactical mind and good understanding of the capabilities of your party members. That's the essence of these games.Now for the rock climbing, again no one plays CRPG with an emphasis to master the control. Is there a sense of achievement when you can micromanage in real time without pausing at all? Probably. Is it worth it? No I don't think so. I have plenty of things to do in good RPG games, and achieving god like hand-eye coordination so I can do the exact same things by pausing the game is very low on my agenda.
It's like Elder Scrolls as an CRPG. Count me in!
lol turrn base GTA XD
FPS? What the... Are you serious?
turn base combat great its turning into final fantasy the game style that is dieing out fast no I think ill pass hope they come to some sense and go back to FPSthis new style
All brilliant games to be sure.
it's real time? ok lol. whatever you say.
WASD is only for movement, everything else is point and click. Sacrifice style, it's kind of wonderful really. And it is not turn based, it is a real time game. Which you should know if you've played it.
lol what? it's WASD controls but each move is a turn, it's not point and click, did you even play those?!
Its in the same universe but is not a direct sequel even though it is set later in the time line. It has the same developers
Legend of Grimrock isn't turn based, it's point and click. Wait... How in the fuck do you call Legend of Grimrock FPS? xDAnd I looked up Wizardry, that is also point and click.
wizardry series, the indie game legend of grimrock and so many old school games
Oh? Give us an example.
you know that there is turn based fps don't you...? and some of them were really successful . anything can be done in a game
Its prequel to Divine Divinity.
Games made by Black Isle and first Bioware games (Icewind Dale 1 and 2, Fallout 1 and 2, Planescape Torment, Bladurs Gate 1 and 2)
Its about genre, action rpg and computer rpg are two different things.
Can you please list of some, I'm genuinely trying to find something. Make sure its some good ones. Much appreciated if you could help me out.
is that divinity game the sequel (might be spelt wrong) to divinity 2 the dragon knight saga?
Seems cool, also the developers are really nice I noticed.
Wow I totally forgot about Fallout... now you make me want to play it again XD
For arpg, not story driven cRPG.
Diablo 1 and 2 are classics.
BG2 is famous for the epic scale and Torment is a masterpiece because of its depth. I could barely read back then when Torment came out. lol But tho I needed a dictionary with me while playing, it's still the best experience I have with video games, and I doubt that will ever change. That kind of writing and plot design just doesn't happen in this media anymore. I strongly recommend you to revisit these Interplay/Black Isle games. If you enjoy good stories, you won't regret it. :)
Yeah, Diablo and Torchlight are not really examples of cRPGs, they are hack n' slash with RPG elements. Lily put two good ones forward, but I'd recommend games like the original Fallout or Fallout 2 on top of the Baldur's Gate series. Another good example of a cRPG is the Quest for Glory series, though you'd need patience for point and click elements to get into that.
Have you played Planescape: Torment or Baldur's Gate 2? Good games. ;)
Your examples for classic cRPG are Diablo and Torchlight? No... just NO!!!
Turn based platformer XDMy god someone NEED to create these just so that we can laugh about it :)
The other track used in this video was also by Two Steps from Hell. El Dorado- Two Steps from Hell.
For those who love classic crpgs or the freaking Syndicate series... Satellite Reign, GO! :)
by turn base do they mean something like DAO or heroes of might and magic? cuz if its like heroes then il pass on this ...
Oh lawd day face he made just made me lose my shit! XD That was awesome, this game looks incredible and love how in depth and diverse. Just over all interesting and the turn base is a welcomed addition! Can't wait for this game!
The art style threw me off at first seeing as how Divine and Beyond Divinity have a much more dark fantasy theme, rather then bright colours and somewhat Torchlight aesthetic. It took some getting use to. I hope they manage to keep some of the dark fantasy theme and humour in Original Sin.
We need more RPG's in this particular style. Hack N' Slash are great fun (Diablo, Diablo II, Torchlikght, etc..) But having a more tactical approach to an RPG is so rewarding because an encounter has a greater chance of being different from the last, and especially if it goes as deep as Original Sin with throwing objects and Elements. Huge fan of the Divinity series, got into it really late and just heard about it last year, but I'm in love with all the games and Larian Studios. Cheers to them
anyone knows when it comes out ty
Yes, you're breathing in and breathing out are taking turns, you can't do both at the same time. I still say turn based makes ANYTHING better. Anything at all you could think of.
This looks like a much better updated version of Runescape
That's not taking turns. Taking turns involves more than one person/program.
You do take breath in turns? I mean, when your lungs are full, you pause, and then you let the air out. I do not understand your argument. :S
If people had to take breath in turns, we would all die, and there would be no one left to enjoy your turn-based fantasy.
All things, real or unreal, inside or outside the known universe, in all dimensions, past, present and future, everywhere and anytime *stops for breath* could be made better if turn based...
That's not true. I'm okay with turn based games, but I prefer they give me something to cool to look at if I can't go berserk on my enemies.
YOUR BRAIN IS HUGE!!! ahahahahahha epic AJ ^_^
See my other comment :P
It depends on the game. If Skyrim or Dragon's Dogma were turn based, they would suck. Arma could be turn based kind of, and any strategy game could be turn based.
05:20 EPIC FACE
