    Exploration may be interesting with swimming and stuff. Combat confirmed to be shit.

    Isometric it is, art does look cool, but how the hell do you deduce the rest? TB-combat is obvious, but it's not obvious it will be really good. Need gameplay video.

    My fears is that the weirdness will be there but not necessarily the Myst like mystery. Also hope the combat offers variation with different encounters having some special background mechanic to spice things up, for example save a character in some turns etc, mix up role playing with the combat itself. Also I know exploration will be limited considering the nature of the game but damn I wish its big enough.

    I'm not saying it will be really good. But it checks off all the boxes I was looking forward to. I'm especially hyped on how much thought the devs have put into the narrative...aka replaying PST to remember/understand what made it so fun.

    Plus, the more TB games coming out the better IMO. I usually am not a big fan of RTwP.

    They have already said there will be no trash mobs. This goes with their crisis system.
    The narrative will be good because Ziets, McComb, Heine etc
    As for combat we'll see. The fact it's TB is already :obviously:

    TB can be okaish (Wasteland 2, Shadowrun) and pretty boring (Halfway). So i'll reserve judgement.
    The fact that they pretty much had an established team and development flow with Torment gives me hope it will be much better than Wasteland 2 (bumpy 1st project/team ramp up, etc.).

    There's going to be like 12 encounters in the entire game.

    They've also spent a lot of time thinking about the story—I don't know this is the same thing as a well though out story.

    Not looking forward staring at tiny characters with wooden animations walking over maps that look like a mess..

    Aside from the cool background and sense of wonder, I'm not sure what I am supposed to be impressed of in that trailer

    You were pretty impressed by PoE, though. Guess them backgrounds are a winner eh?

    I am still impressed and have fun with PoE, whats your point?

    With backgrounds I mean the lore of this world, not the 2d maps.

    I'm pretty sure this is incorrect. IIRC someone maybe Heine mentioned that there'd be around 12 major crises in the game, not encounters. Dunno if that's changed, Brother None ?

    Yeah, they added the minor crises (I think scuffles?).

    But way to ruin my exaggeration for effect VS :rpgcodex:

    Yes, you were very impressed with them 2d maps. Or it must have been the brilliant gameplay?

    Good shit, we got a RTwP from Obsidian with tons of super fast combat where it was hard to make shit out, and combat was over in a few rapid clicks one way or another. Now we are getting a turn based rpg in an original world with elements of fantasy and scifi, but hardly any combat. And as an additioanal fuck you both teams will soon put the begging bowl out again for more money.

    Has anyone calculated at exactly what age developers start losing it?

    Whatever Surf Solar. You like POE at least, which means that you should like this because they're basically the same thing.

    I really want to see more combat.

    I fear that it's essentially the Wasteland 2 combat with melee focus.

    Looks, good especially the combat system, but animations are really stiff. I'm really happy, that they've abandoned the retarded character designs from the Numenera tabletop game.
