    Maybe... maybe... maybe... they've learned their lesson?
    And this will be much better...

    One can hope, no?

    Ech... I will be dissapointed, right?

    Folks here are acting as if the game hasn't been playable for months. We already have some idea of what's coming.

    Tim Schafer I assume. Early bird price with the loyalty discount made it $20. I've got a degenerate gambling problem though since I'm thinking it's going to suck based on everything else inXile's done and yet I still put $20 down and I don't even get any winnings if I end up being right. WHAT AM I DOING TO MYSELF
    (In my defense, even though I think Wasteland 2's hot garbage I could see something I like in there. And Torment was miserable to play but had a memorable story and setting. And Bard's Tale 4 was okay even though it could've been half as long and probably would've been better for it. Maybe fourth time's the charm, and if not then $20 isn't the end of the world)

    I'm looking forward to it as a co-op game, as they'd have to try pretty hard to fuck that up in my eyes.

    If it was a single player only game, it's probably something I'd watch for awhile and maybe pick up on sale. InXile hasn't inspired much faith in me for their single player RPG experiences.

    How many of them - the tons and tons of persks, skills, quirks, etc - are non-combat related, I wonder?

    It stands to reason, that if you have too many combat options in the systems, they all will feel lukewarm at best in execution. And that only leads to lukewarm experience.

    Take a look at Underrail. The vast majority of feats are combat-related there and hardly anyone can describe the game as a "lukewarm experience", at least combat wise.

    Underrail is not an AAA production. Or even AA.

    And for the note, Underrail is an awesome game, but I would've perhaps toned down the combat heaviness of it in order to reach some other heights in design. But that's just me, and no chip off Styg's shoulder.

    Underrail feels like a TB Diablo, travelling is boring, fighting is boring, too much junk, nothing much left to enjoy ...

    No, come on. It's not like that. It is onesided in its design, but it's not bad at what it does.

    Ahhh actually underrail does have a lot of good writing and really good exploration. It is a good game both for storyfags and combatfags ,it is quite the rare thing. Tho the expansion lacked side content,there was plenty of good exploration but lacked a good reason to explore it.

    Inspite of everything. This is the most intriguing release of this year.

    If it turns out shit, there still Cyberpunk to experience and find it even shittier, so there's that too.

    How exactly overall production quality affects internal mathemathical systems? The problem with too many combat-related options might lie in a broken builds and such but not with lukewarmness as I see it.
    Assuming you're a genre veteran, this feedback sounds like you haven't made it far into the game.
