Came here to say this. Glasses houses and stones my friend. It's not as if the concept itself is original.

Large corporate entities generally are pretty good to work for. I worked for a large corporate Hotel chain for a while and though the job slowly destroyed my soul, that wasn't the fault of the company at large - more just unavoidable issues plauging my particular hotels and problem with direct management. Larger companies want to retain employees who do good work because quite frankly, 90% of employees are SHIT, and training and replacing them is difficult. EA hasn't had any problems FOR A WHILE, though years and years ago they were on the forefront of controversy revolving around overworking and underpaying their employees (the EA Wives scandal).

Yeah they aren't going to self regulate, this is where the money is whales can pull in literally tens of thousands of dollars. A month. Not over the lifespan of the game, a month. Nobody is going to let go of that unless the law literally tells them to stop.

This. Self regulation is a pipe dream as long as fiduciary responsibility exists.

I played NWN online in Persistant Roleplaying Worlds for almost a decade. Maybe more. I can distinctly remember being a teenager and plinking around. In fact, I still did up until about two years ago, when my work schedule simply began to interfere with my ability to log onto Escape From The Underdark. The "Build Your Own MMO" was absolutely the centerpiece of NWN, and I never forgave them for what they did with NWN2, even if it wasn't Obsidians fault. I am tentatively excited. I'll buy it again, for the third time (I still have my original 4 disc fold somewhere, as well I purchased a GoG copy, and jumped through the hoops to access multiplayer via that). NWN is still going strong in some communities, even if the server browser is long since dead. Escape from the Underdark is still going. Though I make it a point not to look at the forums, so as to not know whats going on. I still find myself brainstorming character concepts and builds, from time to time. Old habits.

The character brainstorming is indeed one of the many awesome parts of the game, specially when you tag with more people to discuss the viability of certain builds on specific scenarios. The single player campaigns are good, but the persistent worlds are where this game really shines. NWN brings the best out of the Forgotten Realms universe.

"interesting", is a very interesting word! Especially when you use "interesting" in place of other words. Words like "Fraud" or "Embezzlement", or "Crook". Very interesting stories indeed

Despite being a fan of the animes, at least the old school stuff, I don't play too many weeb games. This actually looks interesting though. I'll look for gameplay vids after it launches.

Why are people so knee jerky about being expected to pay more money for a product they've already paid $60 dollars for?

Would you expect to get a concert performance for free because you bought an album?

Death Threats on the internet are pretty meaningless at this point.

Death threats are never meaningless no matter how desensitized you have become.

It was a much anticipated sequel that was deafeningly decent. It didn't get criticized "too much", it just didn't get carried by it's name like you hopedReply

People sent death threats, mate


Like, a lot of them.

No real story to speak of, just "random" events... by which I mean the same 5 events every game.

What? None of that. This is a straight up action game, not your Skyrim LoveLab mod.

Depends how much time you want to stick into it. I'm level 70 and still haven't finished it from doing everything/hunting for materials, but i'm getting there. 20-50 hours at least.
