Looks like it was downgraded to a 7. Still seems high for such a generic pointless game.

@mogan: damn nice, thanks for this. I'm gonna give it a go. I had this feeling also that it looked a bit more laid back and funny.

@mrbojangles25: they are charging for an unfinished game though, I think a review is justified if they are asking for money for their game.

Especially from a company like Larian that has a good reputation from the Divinity series, people should know if its worth it or not because some may blindly buy it thinking it'll be great since they made it.

@ahpuck: I never played the first one, only played DOS2, it was pretty good but overrated for sure.

What in the original was better? Because I'm tempted to play it, it looks fun but just need a bit of motivation to play it.

@lucidique: i don't think they should be selling an unfinished game either, but I guess if people know its unfinished then its their money to throw away... I actually would never do it though.

The only unfinished game I ever paid for was Ultima Online back in 1997 when I paid them 5 dollars to sign up for an early beta test (the 5 dollars was more to cover the shipment of the game disc)

It was definitely worth it because it was a unique experience... but this game doesn't seem all that unique to me, its basically reskinned DOS2 in the Baldurs gate universe.

It's funny people actually pay them money to beta test their game for them.

I'm waiting for the final release and hope its good. I guess I'll thank the beta testers and them paying upfront for an unfinished game... personally I don't have time or patience to work for free for a developer.

The power usage on intels 14nm is getting out of hand though, they can't get much more performance out of these things. It looks like AMD may finally get ahead of intels IPC with their new cpus. With their latest cpus they even had to shave down the cpu dies between the heatspreaders to help get rid of that extra heat. These guys are so desperate to stick with 14nm, they'll be using liquid metal next to cool their cpus.

Anyways I'm still on an old intel 4770k, just waiting it out. I'd rather get an AMD cpu for upgrade reasons since you can usually upgrade multiple cpu generations per board. If AMD's new cpus have IPC equal or greater to intels, the choice is then clear for me.

Glad they are adding this, but Sims 3 had a color wheel, Sims 4 has been playing catch up for the last 6+ years and still lacking so much that was in Sims 3.

With any luck, maybe this addition to CAS will allow modders to find a way to apply the sliders to other objects like hair, clothing and building items?

Does seem unlikely though since they did have a color wheel in for the Sims 4 pets expansion and unfortunately nobody found a way to apply them to other things in the game.

yeah when I hear repetitive missions i decide to pass also. A long and big open world game takes enough to stay focused but I can't also have repetitive missions on top of that.

its likely fine if they can work out all the bugs from the old engine.. its not like you want to rebuild everything from scratch... ancient engines can still work if they adapt them to use new technologies.

Just look at the game Ion Fury, the gameplay is fast as hell and works as good as any modern FPS game yet is using some of the code from the ancient Duke Nukem 3d engine from over 20 years ago... so you don't have to start completely over if you can fix what was broken.
