    So you mean, changing god did cast off himself to see what does one life matter?
    EDIT:
    This ,actually, is main theme in some religions.

    So, is all this wailing based on the assumption that the objectives and mysteries that are revealed in the beta won't change throughout the game, or has someone mined the game files for additional info?

    Judging 20% of a story on anything but prose style seems kinda dumb.

    It's inxile, any assumptions about potential ineptitude on their part, are most likely justified.

    Could be. I'm certainly not encouraged by the combat or interface in general, but if you're going to shit on the story you're going to have to do better than "I played the beta".

    It's a possibility that didn't escape me, but "last" as you've noted is a highly contextual word; it's almost never used as a synonym for "latest" unless the context makes it clear that that is its meaning. When the context is unspecified or ambiguous, it's almost exclusively used as a synonym for "final," because that is its primary meaning and usage.

    All multi-usage words in the English language follow the same rule. Unless context specifies otherwise, the word defaults to its primary meaning.

    Besides which, a glance at the game's publicity materials and Wiki make it obvious that it is supposed to be the last castoff, as in finito, the last one ever, etc.

    It's true, though. I guess what's missing is each having their own idiosyncrasies, like PST had. Each had a different way of talking.

    And I don't think anything any of them will say will be ever be memorable or quotable.

    There isn't going to be a "in enduring grow strong" or even a "hey, chief". All I remember so far is some "hurr durr hurr" and I played it today.

    If I am not mistaken, during or after the kickstarter campaign there were talks about a companion which is a strange blob that can shapeshift depending on your orders?!
    Is that still in?

    even some other supporting characters have their own little "gimmicks" in conversation. not all, but some. it just made them alot more memorable. guess when you set the standard that high everything else would seem to be a disappointment

    So a kickstarter successfully funded, many many years late but it was worth it, we finally get the ultimate rpg, something even darth roxxor and prima junta have the same opinion about!
    Problem is their opinion is its more or less complete shit...

    No, it was cut.

    It was called "Oom", formerly known as the Toy during the Kickstarter. It has very few hits in the beta's files, mostly "what do you think of Oom?" with no answer.

    Party banter:

    [Oom twists his head slightly and looks a you curiously.]

    i give very few fucks whether the objectives in the beta will be changed in the mandatory mid or endgame plot twist when the first part of the story is so insanely terrible that it doesn't make me want to go on and reach the mandatory plot twist

    Meaning it was confirmed it won't be in the final game? If yes, why? Too confusing for their target audience?

    Has somebody (Avellone?) told you this or are you assuming based on what you see in beta files?

    I think the point in that picture was the Pledge Any Amount button. Blaine is sad he can't afford to pledge more.

    Oh, I stopped years ago when the shitshows started to roll off the assembly line. I learned my lesson with WL2 and PoE. T:ToN might actually have been my last substantial pledge. I doubt I'll donate to any crowdfunding campaign again.

    No, in-game backer inserts, NPCs, portraits, and memorials are cancer. I went for the art print instead.

    They cut one of their own stretch goals (not to mention - just about the only companion, apart from MCA's, of course, I was looking forward to)?

    Real classy, inXile.
