    Aren't you the guy who complained how the cops in Mad Max didn't follow established police procedures?

    No, I didn't like Mad Max enough to have any opinions on it. It's a boring movie that's not post-apocalyptic enough.
    What's that got to do with anything?

    Eh, it's consistent with canon. Even Wasteland 1988 had weapons like the Proton Ax and the Ion Beamer, robots with lots of flashing lights and glowing radiation everywhere. Cartoonish sci-fi effects are to be expected.

    Ironically, W2 turned out to be the best game of the self-funded KS era (DOS and DOS2 notwithstanding as it was basically a free promotion campaign for Sven), let's see if Fargo has not tier-one'd us this time. Currently trying out 'demo' version, will buy if it's good for what it is. The UI looks to be too big for my liking, is there a way to distance camera farther away and decrease size of every UI element by factor of 2?

    WL2 was nowhere near the best games of the KS era.

    Fucking GOG installer takes half an hour. They should let you create your party while the game is installing.

    They all dumped intelligence as they thought it was a useless stat.

    So, apparently my shotgun guy got the friggin cat instead of my sniper. The crit stats are useless for her. I thought the effect was for the whole party, not a single party member, shiet.

    Not gonna start a new game again, fuck this.

    Can someone say rough expectation of end game level, 50, 100? Poindexter seem viable in any case but still - kinda hard to plan out w/o at least some estimation.

    Roleplay system was twisted af in WL2, and here it seemed much more clear at the first glance but the more I dig in, the more I feel that not really. It's a Sawyer's nightmare (but even as a bad thing I'd say). Str gives hp/lvl so it's kinda mandatory for any char but Int gives only starting skill bonus thus as some mentioned = next to useless (albeit I haven't seen crit damage multiplier yet because it says only +crit damage). Char gives huge xp bonus so basically skill bonus/lvl instead, luck looks like some joke stat, death wish quirk seems pretty good but sorta scary w/o any meta knowledge...

    Luck is an amazing stat for sniper and it operates along side intelligence for crit chance, there are two different types of crit (normal and luck based).

    I maxed out luck, YOLO.

    Windows 7 and my PC didn't blow up in my face. I don't know if it flawlessly work for everyone, though.

    Is this a bug because see above... Where are you getting this idea INT does increase SP when it quite concretely states that it does? Unless it only applies at level one? The description isn't terribly clear unfortunately.

    I've asked some guy who posted review today and actually finished the game and he said that end game level is around 20-25 so it possible to max 2 stat and 2 skills per char + few others till 5-6 at best. So, system is pretty tight.

    This means bonus points on character creation.

    (And no it's not a bug. Look at skill point requirements for rising skill from level 7 to 8.)
    Edit: Maxing skill in WL3 needs 28. WL2 needs 44. The skill point costs are adjusted to reduced skill point gain because they made everyone average brain average skill person.
