    Apparently Pathfinder has been doing pretty well in the PnP market, partly because 4e hasn't been doing as well as 3/3.5 (like I didn't see that one coming).

    Anyway, I've love to see a crpg adaptation of Pathfinder, which I think is an improvement on 3.5 e. Not sure if it will ever happen though, cause it seems to depend on Pathfinder acquiring the same kind of notoriety as D&D or WoW.

    Your right, they need someone to put them on the map. You still see alot of D&D books on the shelves at a Barnes & Noble, but no Pathfinder or maybe one supplement. They need $$$$$ to push their product.

    Won`t happen. Its still a d&d product, and its licensed by Wizards of the coast. Crpgs based on d&d allways have to use the current ruleset. In this case 4th edition. Its a shame though. Pathfinder is quite ok, even though they kind of overdid it when modding the 3.5 rules. Its miles better than 4th ed though.

    No matter the Setting or Rule-set, it will no doubt end up a diablo clone....a bad one!

    If that's true, it's a real shame. I would love to see some 3.5 engine in a game. Guess were stuck with only 3.0 ToEE then...

    It is true. Icewind Dale 2 and Nwn came out when the 3.0 rules were the newest set. Then 3.5 came out and we got Nwn 2 and temple of elemental evil. Now 4th ed is the current, and we will be getting games like Daggerdale, and mmorpgs. Thats pretty much what 4ed is, really. WoW mixed with pokemon cards.

    I think it's already on GoG. Don't know how good of a game it is, but there should be some reviews around already.

    It's a pretty decent game if you know what you're doing from the get go, although I think they've largely overestimated the amount of system knowledge most players will have. People are getting absolutely rekt at lower levels. That said, like the vast majority of modern games, it's incredibly poorly optimized and riddled with bugs. Probably gonna be worth playing in a year. :shake:
