Throwback RPGs like Divinity and Torment are rediscovering the power of proseThrowback RPGs like Divinity and Torment are rediscovering the power of prose

Torment is one of my favorites of this year. Did it come this year?
But it definately ain't came that you play through in couple of nights. All that reading (as great as it is) can get bit tiresome.

After 30 hours over 1/3 of locations cleared I gave up. Beside main mission I had basically found no other meaningful missions.
Game had turned into clear map marker -> return to one of the outpost to fiddle with horrible inventory UI -> repeat.
Will be jumping back to New Vegas after New California releases though.

Even if rest of the game was bit bland (Bethesda doh) how you create your character and choose stats in the beginning is amazing. Wish more games would use opening sequences like that rather than your basic character creation screen.

Why haven't Wolfenstein and Destiny learnt from Half-Life 2's lack of cutscenes?Why haven't Wolfenstein and Destiny learnt from Half-Life 2's lack of cutscenes?

I don't think Half-Life 2 had that great story telling. At least it couldn't keep my interest to complete the game originally.
I never had the issue when I'm pulled away from first person for cutscene or conversation. This might be bigger issue on pure FPS shooters but I grew out of those 15 years ago.
However having armor or weapon that you don't even have in your inventory in a cutscene bugs the hell out of me.
I think Deus Ex games have usually found pretty good balance in all this.
Pre-rendered cutscenes can fade away as far as I'm concerned. Absolutely no need for those in this day and age when game engine can do the job just fine.

Third person just feels like cheating. Especially so in a survival game.

Any idea what the price is gonna be on these?Reply

The season pass is £29.99 / $34.99. The expansions aren't available individually yet, but we would guess £19.99 / $24.99 each, or something similar.

Don't think Obsidian has anything to do with South Park: The Fractured But Whole?Reply

I stand corrected - I'd assumed they were involved, given how high-profile their involvement in the first was. Too many RPGs coming out this year to keep track of them all, which is a great problem to have.

The player is having a conversation at 19:30, and there's alignment questions asked 4 minutes in.

But like I said it's not feature but compination of several. Which is why these games are great. You have all these features and objectives and taking advantage of those you'll reach your objective different ways. Should they not have trading, crafting, and npcs that are aware of things?

But yeah maybe they used some marketing budget on it.

You're making a very weird comparison. Having trading etc is not along the lines of having a system in that screws over your team. One where you can turn them in to get jailed, and hinder their progress. It's not just something someone tossed in using a lunch break either. It wasn't in the first game, so they've spent time theory crafting it, implementing it, and fine tuning it to their liking.


My point is you can't equate this to something like crafting. You don't see them pimp the crafting system or whatever. They've put effort and time into this absolutely useless feature which nobody wanted, and that is a real detriment to the game, in my opinion. I just really hope it means they haven't shirked other more important parts because of it, but I suppose we'll see.
