I was about 11 and not a native English speaker, came up with what I thought was a pretty clever play on words. I'm still paying for my mistakes, and having spent more than halv of my life with this handle it's kind of too late to change it now.

And my avatar is a picture of my actual face.

I had a game crash in Gothic 2 while saving to my only save file. This was a save just before the start of the final bit of the game(fighting the dragons or whatever). I never finished that game.

I'm running Windows 7, tested on the newest version of Chrome and IE 11.0.18. Tried Firefox at some point, but as far as I can remember, the HTML player has never actually worked for me.

Log says there's a connection timeout on downloading the resource file, but tracert to v.giantbomb.com works, so I dunno what's up. Anyway, here's a bit of the log:

I've been getting a few bits of cut off VO, but nothing else as far as I could tell.

@veektarius: Yeah, so I wasn't able to install because Steam claimed it required 36GB and thought I only had 33GB for Time Machine reasons. After clearing local snapshots I got it to install and the download is only 11GB. Not a big deal since I had the extra space, but annoying none the less.

Is this game seriously 36GB on OSX?

Over the last 11 years, you've spent 2018.5 hours playing this selection, which includes 403 items, is valued at $5154.81, and requires 1438.9GB

This is actually a depressingly small amount of time considering the number of games on there.

I've actually seen basically nothing of this game. Seeing this thread made me fire up a Josh Sawyer gameplay video, but I feel I'm really better off not knowing anything about the game once I start playing it. For real, I'm so glad I hadn't seen this coming, 'cause now I'm real stoked.

I usually roll a ranger in these games, ever since I solo'ed BG1 as a ranger back in the day, but if there's no NPC rogue I might go that route depending. Thankfully I haven't thought, and won't think, too much about it.

@ripelivejam: I'm not sure a crowdfunded project can be called successful that hasn't yet been released. I've paid money for this thing and am completely expecting it to crash and burn in one way or another. On the other hand it might come out and then there will be no need for any other games. Ever.
