as a big larian fan yourself, would you like larian to [size:11pt]take their time and create the best turn-based RPG ever made (and even go beyond the tentative release deadline) or would you like larian to release original sin ASAP?
thank you for your opinions all wink[/size]

I vote for 'when it is done', which should be October/November if Larian's projected estimates and budgets (from when they began the kickstarter) remain reasonably accurate. The amount of work to be done puts a lower limit on the release date, while the amount of money available gives an upper limit. If there ends up looking like there would be a large gap between the two, I think Larian would be more inclined to add more detail and polish than release early, but since all the stretch goals were met, that isn't likely to be an issue.

Agreed with Raze and LC: It'll be done when it's done, and released when it's done.


* as usual this is imho (unless stated otherwise); feel free to disagree, ignore or try to change my mind. Agreeing with me is ofc also allowed, but makes for much worse flamewarsarguments.

I'd go w/ Raze, but only on November. Specifically, a week before black Friday starts.

I think DOS should be released when Larian think it should be released. If that means releasing it early and adding later or releasing it later - I think it should be their decision as to what works best for them.

That will happen only if sales of DC is unexpectedly good.

If Larian comes up with an extra year's worth of stuff to add to D:OS, I think that would much more likely to be an add-on than a delayed release (especially since they said when the kickstarter began that if any stretch goals would take too long to complete they would still release the game as intended and provide the extra content when it was done).

Taking too long can lead to them going over budget which is not something we want to have happen either because it would mean the production time and costs were not managed well and the game still has issues and is likely to still ship with issues if that ends up happening. That's not the same as saying I want to rush them either....if they need more time and it fits well with the budget they have then by all means I would not object. Ultimately I just hope that everything fits well with their projected time-frame which is accommodated by their budget.

hmmmmm in november will be release the well-expected Watch dogs, so it might not be a good period for Larian to launch their game...

And I do not want Larian to do what they did with D2 : releasing the game before and remove Aleroth from the original game I say when they will complete the game !!
If you need a bit more time to make a really good collector pac, take your time laugh

There are always going to be hot new AAA games coming out, no matter when you release. Postponing a release by one, two, three months isn't going to change that. The schedule for release should only be dictated by "Is it done?" and "How much money have we reasonably got for continuing development?"

I fully agree with Raze.

When it's done. I understand that they'll want to time the release to try and maximise sales, but there's never a perfect time.

Ah yes, but how many AAA RPGs are there gonna be? (Well, exactly one I think: Wasteland 2)

I don't think D:OS and most AAA games will be in the same market. Larian obviously have a very powerful engine to help with implementing all the features that are promised and with the ability to hire extra hands with the $1 million I think the prospect of the November release is not only promising but wouldn't harm sales at all.
