I read on another forum if you kill or do something other dirty trick people of a village become hostile and you can't do quests in that village ... nice to read ... remember me of Divine Divinity !

Only wondering if you can make them back (more) friendly in some way or not ? wink

I haven't bought this game, but I have the feeling this game is maybe more fun for me than many other RPG's like Skyrim, Risen, The Witcher, etc ... only the Divinity games are for ones and always my favorite RPG's number 1 !! smile

Played the demo on the PS3, liking it from what I have seen of the time limited first area. Huge game world to explore and plenty of quests to do. Yes it is true that it is possible to make people hate you and loose quests which is nice.

Bad points is it is buggy; got a lot of graphical problems such as textures incorrect or whole areas black with just odd structures around. Going in / out of houses etc fixed it for a while. Hope the full version does not do this. This was on the PS3. On the PC it runs but you can't see anything apart from tne menu and certain environmental objects repeating as you move.

Seems to be a common issue kinda looks like this:-

I don't know to buy the PS3 or PC version or not at all, might wait a while and see. The grphical glitches would make it unplayable for me. Googling the subject seems the full version has problems too.

Those issues are not present in the final build...
DEMO build was over 3 Months Old, reviews have reinforced this.
So you'll be say to buy either, I've not run into any bugs tbh.

IF I buy Amaular I go for the Xbox version.

But I still doubt to buy it, I don't know why ...

Maybe because of "time" ?
And as long as I've fun with DKS, why should I buy & play other rpg's ?
I've only 2 hands & two eyes :hihi:

I read that the demo was forked from the main game and additional programmers just made it runable.

This is what is putting me off buying the PC version. If I get the game will it run on my hardware? At least if I get the PS3 version I know it will work.

Same as for me . I hate Steam or Origin or other activation procedures because I haven't a connection in my home computer smirk

I'm not surprised. No handbook = no financial losses.
