I went to the site and got a Dragon Age review.

Yeah have to agree I couldn't find a pathfinder review up anywhere. Found a lot of other stuff. Since you asked for comments I will give a few on other stuff.

1) The sound is a bit low, i had to turn my sound way up to clearly hear you often.

2) If you are going to show something to the camera please stand much closer to the camera, or hold the object closer. Like the campaign maps in the campaign tips was hard to see and one just looked like a blank piece of paper really.

Thats all the comments I have right now, since I have only listened to one of them so far.


yeah, if you're showing product, it's probably better to actually shoot a tight shot of it separately (video if you want to flip pages, or just scanned stills) and edit those visuals over your narration audio later.

personally, i'm really hoping that the next soon-to-come Update/Errata and subsequent print run will be ALOT tighter, and would want to hold off on my personal reviews until then. for now, there's just ALOT of missing/screwed up/unclear passages, see: how to dig out of avalanche (missing).

Fixed, the Fixed Link


Oh maaaan... LOL

Many thanks.


It was linked to his channel, try this one, instead.

Overall, not a bad watch. I found myself agreeing on most of your points, but one thing I have to bring up is the prestige classes.

It feels to me, with Pathfinder, that Paizo's design is one that Prestige classes should very much be a lateral choice, you can go into them, but there are reasons not to, which is a very different step from 3.5 where you would be quite gimped if you were to not choose one or more. Paizo, in beefing up the base classes, has really made the choice of entering a prestige class a tough one, and I expect to see that trend continue.


Good review. Pretty well spot on.

3.75 out of four stars, how apt!

For some reason, as an American, I can sit and listen to a British accent for hours. Might explain my fascination with all things Gordon Ramsey.


my thanks for your thoughts regards


Good review, though, honestly, I don't like calling Pathfinder 3.75. It sort of implies that Pathfinder hasn't yet caught up with 4.0.

3.75 is just a term i prefer to call it pathfinder and as for catching up its not even close d@d 4th sucksssssssssssss


D&D 4th really does suck.

We appreciate enthusiasm for our products, but it is not necessary (or desirable) to tear others down to make that point. The edition wars were long and painful enough as they were.


Welcome to the boards, Outsiders68. Thanks for sharing the review.

EDIT: Hopefully by now, you've found the Conversion Guide and Errata. (They're free downloads.) The conversion guide will point you to some of the major changes you were concerned about identifying.


I agree that calling it 3.75 feels strange.
Think about it, is it LESS a change than 3.0->3.5 was? Certainly, not.

That's why I prefer to call it "the OTHER 4th Edition",
which I think is more appropriate to what it actually is.

If you like, "the REAL 4th Edition" even works ;-).

I'm not sure you'll find many Pathfinders looking to be painted with anything resembling a '4th edition' brush.


true, and i guess the number 4 is seen as bad luck (associated with death) in japanese/chinese cultures :-)

Have you considered putting some of your stuff up as PDF's or something online as well? I mean hearing about it is nice, but sometimes seeing and reading exactly what you did would be better. Not the reviews but the tips and stuff.
