    the only intense thing about this game is how fucking annoying some things are. elevator in highpool, quest bugs and trying to figure out what the fuck to do with the trader's wagon in the prison.
    also the camera, of course.

    combat has been a breeze playing on seasoned with RP characters (korean car show models -- the ones I posted some weeks ago).

    I tried to spread the skill pips thinly among everyone, I mostly skipped on diplomacy though. My first party will probably suck, hard.

    I suspect so, but it's complicated.

    Semi-technical answer: we cannot account for world state issues easily. If an NPC is in a scene and the NPC instance changes, we can't update your save so the NPC is correct. But if issues corrected are just generic to scripts and not world state issues (i.e. quest X doesn't update when Y happens) it's probably something you can use a current (or very near) save with.

    A lot of bugs are going to be things related to players doing weird things we didn't anticipate, more oversights than "actual" bugs. So they require new quest stages, scripts and possibly content to fix. Those ones are more variable.

    Any straight-up "not working as intended" stuff will probably be no problem, though we're also doing a lot of work to make sure that our fixes don't just correct the source of bugs, but the symptoms caused too...

    At worst: you might have to replay a few hours or something, but there's probably not going to be anything game-ending as a result of a patch.

    I was upset I couldn't play until Monday because InXile manually moves their paypal pledges into a database.. Cron Jobbing a curl script takes an hour too long to make apparently.
    After all the bugs maybe I should wait a month for the patches instead.

    Yes I am butt hurt..

    I might hold off for some time playing it then. I had to replay 2 hours of SRR: Dragonfall when I played it the first time, it was pretty bullshit.

    On the other hand I really want to start playing this thing. HNNNNG

    Got to AG Center, may be not in the right mood or just tired, but it seems a little boring, escpecially the toxic basement stuff.

    Hmm, let's see, my C-64 that I originally played Wasteland on in 1989 had a 300 baud modem...

    If Wasteland 2's download size is about 10 GB, then it would have taken that modem approximately 8.5 years of continuous downloading.

    Provided that I had the nearly 27,800 floppy disks to store it on, that is.

    I'm really looking forward to playing this game, but I'll probably need to wait until I have a more modern PC at home.

    You know, as ugly as Wasteland 2's character art is, I like the character creation a lot better than in something like D:OS. Diversity/options > beauty, I'd prefer a low poly/res base with all the options you get in wasteland to being able to color slide the same beefy WoW model in D:OS.

    Although it would be much better if they didn't remove the headdresses, fucking cunts, I did my portraits with them in mind and now my OCD makes me have to scrap them; 15 minutes in mspaint down the drain.

    RIP in peace Tonka and Decanus Sirus.
