#1 Posted by uninspiredcup (10044 posts) -

Widely regarded as the greatest RPG maker outside of Black Isle Obsidian captured the imagination of generations with incredible titles such as Knights Of The Old Republic 2 and Fallout: The Vegas.

According to eurogamer (the greatest gaming website) Obsidian next title will be a free2play tank game with RPG elements.

Is Call Of Duty Quake? Is Sonic the Hedgehog Mario?

Exactly. Oh how Obsidian has fallen.

Sadly, the focus of free2play is primarily due to pc gamings piracy. This is the crux pc gamers created through an unwillingness to support developers.

I guess this pays the bills while they're working on Pillars of Eternity?

Is it April 1st?

That looked terrible. Simply put uninspired, and probably wont be as good or successful as world of tanks.

Definately, Obsidian does a lot of small side projects while working on bigger ones. Helps keep funding their real games.

But to be blunt, I am actually worried for Pillars of Eternity. It seems to suffer from a bad case of shy balancing, the kind of obsessive balancing that attempts to balance things out by removing all potential fun and dulling out all the spells, builds and abilities.

Well, it has modern tanks which alone makes it more interesting than world of tanks. I really hate how slow and sluggish tanks in world of tanks are. So I'll give armored warfare a go when it's released. It's free so I won't lose anything.

Obsidian... Making a free2play tank game?

#20 Edited by Lulu_Lulu (15198 posts) -

Its not a Tank game with RPG Elements... Its a Tank RPG. And why is it the worst developers are always regarded as the best RPG makers ?

#21 Posted by CrownKingArthur (5085 posts) -

i don't know. just because world of tanks is successful, i mean why try and compete with them by dancing in their shadow? makes no sense to me.

i could play something like this however when it comes to taking my money, i'm sure EVE online would have a better chance.

You know what I don't understand ?

MS taking a widely popular, multi-million selling franchise and turn it into a Clash of Clans clone (talking about AOE)

At least Obsidian didn't turn KOTOR 3 or something into a World of Tanks clone...

I don't see how this is interesting but people have different taste. Isn't it basically FPS but using tanks? I see no strategy here.
