Honest question with no malice.
What has this title got to do with either the much loved Black Isle game that a lot of folks are obviously emotionally connecting it with (saw PC Gamer call it the successor to NWN today for example) or D&D (beyond a skin of FR lore)?
Is it simply doing what TESO is doing and cynically trading off the credibility of a popular IP while actually having zero to do with it once you get past the brand and the skin of lore?
If so, is this actually an honest way to do business? It could be seen as a pretty cynical way of manipulating folks?
As a side quesion, and I ask the same of TESO fans, would you be as excited for this game if it didn't connect it's brand to one you already love? Would the game itself hold up to what you are looking for? Would you care about it anymore then a random PWE game? Try to answer honestly if you can...
