    Not that I experienced.

    If they have an effect, then that effect isn't signaled, so I might have missed it, but in my experience dispositions in Pillars were much more meaningful, and they were mostly fluff. In Torment they seem to be purely fluff.

    Maybe they can change some things in the ending slides, but my ending in particular didn't.

    It's not the number of reviews that matter, it's the quality of the argumentation.

    If you updated from Early Access to the full release, I'd Verify Integrity before starting the game. You never know what screwed up old files you have in there.

    A team of writers, better technology, more than 10 years of acquired knowledge and the game is much worse in every aspect. Avellone wrote PS:T all by himself in one year, alone. The decline is real.

    No, no - they wrote with a whole team instead of one guy, they followed up on a classic instead of making an original game, between those handicaps they gave themselves it's good job they made a halfway working game!

    Well I really hope the game is good. Wasteland was OK and the premise is nice so I am all for it but those guys I trust. The had I believe the first review for underail and a very positive one at that.

    Please codex prove those poverty stricken Greeks wrong and let me enjoy this game. After a year when it's patched and ready.

    This is a very big problem. Coherency and style can't be sustained with a lot of cooks in any creative endeavor, I once composed a score for a short film with a few other people and it was hell. The final result was utter garbage, unintelligible gibberish and incoherent musical ideas, just plain awful. You probably need an editor + a lead writer who reads everything everyone writes and rewrites the obvious clashes for teams to work well.

    6/10 is not even "lower than average".

    The game has been running well for me btw.

    So promoting Brother None to Lead Programmer backfired? Disappointing.

    Agree 100%. Even if they had relied on just one bad writer, it would still be better than this.

    First Impression:
    Why in the hell, did they decide to reveal the entire mystery of your existence in the first 30 minutes? What a blown opportunity.
    Second Impression:
    They should have spent some of that Kickstarter loot on an editor; the writing is beyond purple and full of awkward metaphors. I feel like I'm reading bad fanfic half the time.

    Playing the game, I like how you can apparently solve situations by talking to people and aren't forced into combat all the time. I also like how you can use environment a lot (for example finding that mace by breaking some shit, or just exploring and interacting with odd things in the world). Combat's not too terrible, to be honest, but the companions are pure shit. Pretty sure I've already guessed the entire story, but we'll see. Might be a 5/10 game with potential for a sequel.

    Oh and I really like the soundtrack so far. There are some very good, mellow tracks.

    Yeah but one of the biggest selling points of the kickstarter was the "writing team" Mitozda, Avellone, Zeits,Cook... god knows who else. Looks like it didnt work as planned.

    I guess he also suffers from multiple personality disorder and 7 additional designers in PS:T credits are all his aliases.

    Again, there was no huge writing team of a dozen people. This is a misconception that's been around since the Kickstarter. The game was written in practice by basically two people with two or three others helping them. I think PoE may have actually had more people dedicated to writing companions.

    Look, I will be the first to criticize the excess of cult personality here. I didn’t say he designed the game by himself. I said that he wrote the game by itself.
