    New portraits, eh? Did they just change the MC ones or style in general?

    Still sub 30 frames on my 640m craptop.

    I haven't been following the game at all, but after 10 minutes I'm happy with the direction it has taken and the point system. I didn't get into a combat/crisis yet, tho.

    Will continue tonight.

    Surprisingly many people. I work for a US-based company and yet here in *redacted* about 10% of my co-workers (low grade people not involved in any global activities) can't speak English at all so we have to equip their laptops with localized MS Office.

    Video games can help actually.

    I learned the basics of English at school but I couldn't really speak it until I started playing text-heavy video games. Back then localizations sucked even more than they do now, so I wanted to play originals even if that meant looking up words in dictionary every now and then. Then I spent about a year on PS:T forums. People could barely understand me at first but in a few months I learned more than during five years of "studying" English before that.

    This is the first time I've paid attention to New Torment's UI. Looks pretty Dragon Agey. :M

    You don't know italian gamers, I suppose* :M
    Every fucking time a game is not localized in italian (my native language), they start bitching around.

    Oh god, a studio with no experience in international physical distribution is going to be shipping kickstarter rewards and handling their manufacturing, this is going to fuck up, isn't it?

    Was the WL2 deal with Deep Silver sour enough to not renew it here?

    It's probably just a thing they hacked together in a day so Techland would have something to post.

    Are polackos aware of the invention of padding shipped products? Deep Silver wasn't.

    Apparently it's their first publishing job on international market.

    Fun times ahead.

    Has anyone who played the previous beta version tried this one yet? Am curious to see what's changed in the opening bits and if it's better this time around.

    The opening has been re-worked pretty significantly, will be curious to see what the feedback is on it now.

    We added a health pool, but note the stat pools are still there as resources to use on Difficult Tasks etc.

    XP still works the same, though the amounts and flow have been changed and we did get rid of DP. But not there's still no per-kill combat XP or anything like that, of course.

    The lowest common denominator probably got too confused without hit points.

    I wonder if Numenera fans feeling betrayed will actually be a thing upon release.

    It's a lot of text.

    It's possible that the beta contains the assets of the full game. DosBuster would know.
