    Enemies react in pain or die when you shoot them instead of bullet sponging. Enemy guns don't work fine then turn to rust and rot the second they're dead. Guns feel different from each other. The player can move fast and the enemy doesn't hitscan instant hit you while running around quickly. The enemy is, to some degree, predictable (though not necessarily stupid). Guns keep the round in the chamber when reloading.

    This is an impact of the MS acquisition. I bet MS has a boilerplate program template that OE just rolled out with small tweaks.

    Large companies have known you can get ppl to work for little to no money for decades now. Hell, Windows is mostly made by CS undergrad interns.

    The south park games are bundled for 7 bucks. I just bought it. Is this $80 bundle worth the $7 I just paid?

    If you like South Park's humor Stick of Truth is a fun, charming little game. Fractured but whole isn't worth it though overstays its welcome and and falls flat most of the time.

    Just don't let the RPG label mislead you, there are literally no RPG elements in these games.

    Technically that's not a bad thing. In Stick of Truth practically every gameplay element works in favor of it being a South Park game including combat.
    (Even though it ends up being way too easy.)

    On the other hand, Fractured but Whole has technically more rpg elements, but all of them ending up being boring garbage that drag the game which kills its humor.

    I love it when Josh’s annoyance that OES is staffed by people who are terrible at RPGs bubbles over in passive aggressive game design a la PoE twitter posts.

    Sawyer's actually getting worse at designing conversations. What a trainwreck this dialogue-based game will be.

    It won't be a trainwreck if it would have good combat.

    He was never a good dialogue designer,he shines at level design and directing a project. He is shit at writing.

    The question is, is he getting shittier at writing dialogue, or are his colleagues getting worse at reading dialogue? I'd say it's 50/50.
