    It gives you time to truly appreciate Cleve's herculean effort.

    What if it is intentional to increase "gameplay time"?

    Proper mouse support is very hard to implement, you know.
    After all, there is no such thing as hundreds of libraries for every concievable programming language giving you proper mouse movement with a movement delta since last frame.
    No, sir!
    You have to implement it with a fixed rate and those plebs better adjust their input devices to the rate you have chosen!

    It's not that; it's that Cleve, in his infinite wisdom, decided it wasn't needed.

    So this critique was posted on August 21, seventeen days after the launch of Grimoire.

    Divinity: Original Sin 2 was released two months ago. Still no front page review.

    Fascinating.

    Feel free to take a crack at it yourself.

    It's not like there's a bunch of unpublished D:OS 2 reviews rejected for low-quality. Codex can only publish what's submitted.

    So you actually like ELEX?

    Any (one-word) teaser description of Grimoire? Do you...*enjoy*...playing it?

    Hyperborea is calling and I must go. The world needs a Barrower metalsmith and company to set things right.

    Very good review. I enjoyed catching up on Grimwah. I think I'd enjoy playing the game too if by some miracle it was ever finished but that seems as unlikely as it ever was to me.

    I know I am wrong but I couldn't help smiling as I read the reveal about features not implemented, an outfitted NPC gone 40 hours in, bug upon bug, crashes, no documentation, raging on the steam forum, pretty much the kind of release I would have expected from Cleve. A release this poor is really funny coming from a guy with such a huge ego. It's all just so wonderfully sweet.
