    The crises, look to me like a concept, that only sounds good on paper. Perhaps the traditional approach is simply still the best: fight if you fight, act if you act, and talk if you talk. Even in PnP i have never changed this simple formula. It doesn't meant that the crisis is a failed concept, but it could be that it needs quite the tweaking till it is on its peak.

    That would have required both work and imagination. Why would you expect something like that?

    Frankly, I'm surprised they put in the time and effort to develop a character model and animation rigging that wasn't humanoid.

    If the base product is shit, no amount of patches is gonna make it work... But a lot of games are released as a buggy, unplayable mess and end up being good games in the end... TToN is a type of game that can keep selling for years if it's a good game and they patch it up good. But it also may be beyond repair.

    Didn't they plan to expand Sagus Cliffs like it was supposed to be?

    For consoles, they'd have to release another box. And that will never, ever happen.

    Yeah, particularly
    Reduced number of Peerless drones during Anechoic Lazaret crisis.
    Reduced total number of combatants in the Bloom Heart, reduced knockdown effects, and streamlined introduction of spawned enemies.
    Reduced total number of enemies in Miel Avest, and made Sorrow's aura do noticeable damage but not insta-kill.
    Reduced total number of enemies in the Memovira’s Fortress crisis, and added non-insta-kill aura to Sorrow.

    Any words on reduced shitty animations created by shitty animator obsessed with shitty root animation? Watching those knockdown/get up animations EVERY FUCKING TURN in a combat really showed the kind of veteran game designers that developed this game.

    You know those Wild Cards mosaic novels that GRRMartin edits? It just occurred to me that Torment is a gaming equivalent of what would happen if 10 people who all think they are GRRMartins somehow managed to complete a mosaic novel -- without an editor.

    Sounds like they made it easier, is that right? Seems kinda unnecessary when the game at launch is one of the easiest RPGs known to man.

    Before, it was "easy and tediously long." They reduced the tediousness, which is still an improvement.
