You're kidding, right?

If not, you're doing us all a favor uninstalling every game you don't want to play.  In fact, do this for us as a community:  go to your nearest hardware store, purchase the biggest magnet you can find (obviously, affordability isn't an issue for you) and set that magnet right next to your hard drive.  Once all the inferior data has been removed from your hard drive, you can remove it from your computer and go play hockey with it, being the awesome guy that you are.

The world would benefit from more guys like you.  Bring back the stone age!

I don't know about you people but I play RPG games to immerse myself into the world and in most cases I like to make a bad ass characters that reflects me as if I was in the universe, I can't get into a character that is a female because I am not.

 

Maybe i'm just an old school Alpha male and maybe times have changed but I play MMO's any game for that matter with character creation male, too bad because this game looked pretty deep.

Call me when they remove gender locking.

LOL so you are missing out on a pretty fun game because of that ?

 

BTW this is an arpg like diablo 1 + 2 that both had gender lock characters.. guess you never played those either.. You are really missing out on some good games but there we go.

Have to laugh at most of the responses to this.

OP...not sure what you expected since you are told what you will play from the get go.

Which is the problem with this game...from the get go. Everyone can cheer this game til their faces are blue....wont change the fact that it's a lame Diablo clone. Worse than Diablo because it claims you can make a toon anything you want. True to a point...but who cares if you aren't having fun?

I take it you haven't actually played the game, or at least read up on any of the details regarding the equipment & skills systems. You can actually take any of the starting "classes" and spec them into anything you wish. Want to look like a frail witch but have everything invested in strength, heavy armor, a massive 2 handed weapon, and strength based melee abilities? Go ahead.

 

Passive skill / stat trees are universal, the same for everyone. Anyone can use any equipment type as long as you meet the minimum stat requirements. Anyone can use any skill gem type as long as they meet the minimum stat requirements.

Take it how you want....

I tested it from way back. Played it at launch. You can spew what you want about it to me and others....just a Diablo clone that add a bunch of fluff on top.

ZZZZzzzzz.....

A lame diablo clone ? really ?
 worse than diablo because it claims you can make a toon anything you want.. then you claim that is true.. so how does that make it worse than diablo..

This is one of the best arpgs to be released for a very long time.. not lame at all.

 

But each to their own we cant all enjoy the same things...

Just like Call of Duty is a lame Wolfenstien 3D clone? or a Lame Doom Clone, or Quake clone, etc...

 

Its in the same genre as Diablo. It takes the essentials of the genre, and adds some innovative flavor to it. The only game that rivals its customization in this genre is Torchlight because of the modding community.

 

But even Torchlight doesn't offer the visceral thrill that PoE offers.

 

Saying a game is a lame clone of another game is as uninventive as beating a dead horse. I rolled my eyes so hard they almost got stuck.

I was a little put off by this too, saying it's not gender locked because you can do a bunch of work arounds is bs too. It is gender locked.

But, it's easy enough to overlook for me due to the gameplay - so far it's pretty dang fun.

I still think who you replied to is being tool-ish by calling it a diablo clone - his arguments are pretty lame too. But, it's not optimal to start with a witch and manipulate the tree to make you a warrior. The fighter classes start with bonus stats and at a place in the tree that benifits the intended class.

The character in PoE isn't supposed to be a representation of the player. They're real characters in the game world with set backstories. If you're that hung up on not playing a character of the opposite gender just pick one of the same gender options. Pretty simple. Are you the type of person who complains in The Witcher that there isn't a female version of Geralt? It wouldn't make any sense to have one.

Silly reason to not play the game.

If you really only want to play a male character, you still got all the options available. The 3 stats are strength, dex, int. For strength you can choose Marauder or Templar, for dex you can choose the Dualist, and for int you can choose the Shadow.

And that is only for the starting nodes. When you get higher level, it matters even less where you started.

Yep, and he can roll a templar for int as well.

I do think that choosing a particular starter area is better at least at the start of the game especially for a new player (or someone just starting a new league) who does not have good choice of gear in his stash. Just from a frustration point-of-view at the start of a PoE "career" it is probably wise to choose a class somewhat like what you want to make i.e. a templar, witch, or shade for an int-based character rather than go for a ranger or marauder straight away.

I think this based off of not having the right combination of gear, gems, and not being used to the passive tree. PoE is one of the few games on the market that refreshingly allows people to gimp their characters, so yeah. I would say get used to the game first before experimenting and deviating from the path.

Hmm... it is an ARPG like Diablo, but outside of the main elements of dungeon crawling, bashing monsters and getting loot, it really is not that similar to the Diablo series. If you disliked the game, then so be it, but saying it is a clone of the Diablo games is just flatout wrong. You might as well call it a Gauntlet clone while you are at it because Diablo would absolutely have to be a Gauntlet clone.

You cut yourself out of what is potentially a game you might enjoy for hundreds of hours because of a slightly limiting gender feature?

Sounds like a real gamer to me.

If you are looking to role-play, it's probably not the game for you. The game is about character building, progression, looting, trading and gambling.

I didn't think PoE was fun at all. It looks and feels like a game made 10 years ago. Really the only thing good about it is the skill tree.

You must be a real badass if you only play games that reflect who you really are.  I play games to be pretend I'm someone else in a different place and time.  Maybe I suck at life though...

I guess to each their own, but personally, I would have found a better reason to not play.  Like... the fact that everything about it is relatively dull besides the skill system.  But that's my opinion, and, again, to each their own.
