Plenty of ugly people can land themselves a hot partner in real life.
It's much rarer for even a very attractive person to get together with someone who just isn't into their gender.
And even in video games romances don't always throw themselves at 'attractive' characters. You have to win their affections first via flirting and side quests and other interactions (I still feel bad about plying Mercedes with wine to get her to like me) in order to win their affections, which is probably as close as we can get to actual dating at the moment.
If Greedfall do go down the everyone is bi route I won't complain, but I also won't complain if they don't. All I care about is that the options I do have are well written and likeable.
Well according to recent articles we have a faction that's been burning the Natives so I'd imagine there are some pretty dark story lines. Depending on how accurately the colonial aspect is followed some pretty heavy stuff could go down.
I think there will be options to share the cure with everyone, with allies or just keep it for yourself. Depending on how far Focus want to go there could be a 'no cure' ending, where either you choose to destroy it or it gets lost due to your actions.
Basically what I want is to have some real consequences for my actions.
I've just been looking at the main website for the game to see if anything new has been added and the section on diplomacy made me think. As we progress through the game we'll be forging our own relationships, alliances and enemies. From what we know about the factions and companions there will definitely be opposing sides which we will most likely have to pick between at some point.
What if the last antagonistic force and the final boss are not set in stone, but are selected via choices made by the player? Which ever faction you have the least standing and influence with is the one that comes gunning for the party in the end? Maybe a former Companion who has left your party and been powered up to boss status via magic enhancement, steampunk armor and weaponry or whatever their faction specializes in.
I have mixed feelings about all bi-romances. I mean yeah it's fun to be able to romance whoever you like but it also makes me uncomfortable to change how people feel and think just so my character can date them. Yes I know they are just video game characters, lumps of pixel and what-not, so it's not like any actual people are being hurt, but it still doesn't sit well with me.
I'm the kind of person who never picks the 'mean' options in games because I don't like hurting my companions feelings, so changing their sexuality just so I can engage in frick-frack-snick-snack (what's the rating on these boards?) with them feels disrespectful.
On another note, I wonder if companions are the only characters you can romance or if there are any non-party options.
Well I wasn't planning on peeving off Siora anyway, but I hope the MC can start to pick up a bit of the native language over the course of the game. I like to try and mix and match my team and having to take Siora every time I go to talk to the Teer Fradee may wear a little thin, especially over multiple playthroughs.
That said, it is nice to have proper comeuppances for upsetting your team mates. I wonder if there are disadvantages for loosing party members from other factions? If I upset the Coin Guard will I have random assassins dropping by for a pointy word?
Also I'm wondering if we can determine our starting stats somehow. While I'll probably try and stick with charm and diplomacy for my first run, I think a no-fudges-given brute force run might be fun as well. (Gotta admit, when I read about breaking the cousin out of jail the PotC theme song started playing in my head.)
Will they make the weapons visible when sheathed? So far your character looks like a harmless guy with nothing on him/her when they walk around. Until combat where they pull a 3-meter sword out from nothingness and start destroying things.
Maybe it can be toggled? It's probably just for aesthetics but it could be pretty amusing if your entire squad was decked out in heavy weaponry when trying to conduct peaceful negotiations.
@fortune86 Of course not. There was almost nothing released from the game so far (except early trailer long ago and some screenshots) and you expect release soon? I wouldnt be surprised if the release date is late November/December.
Meh. Can't blame me for hoping.
Going back to the topic a bit, it seem pretty obvious that some of the factions are going to oppose each other and their respective companions likewise. Do you think we'll be able to have them as party members together (even if only for a limited time) or we'll have to flat out chose between them? Could be interesting to hear them snipe at each other or provide conflicting points of view.
