Woo hoo, Beamdog sent me a Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition KEY for asking a question in the interview Blue covered earlier this week! W00t

Evening Interviews

The reviews of the EE are really good. Things they added like Tabbing to show interactable items, and auto-looting, will really help the gameplay.

I bought the original on CD when it was released, and also have the GOG version, which have it installed with all the mods, but I might have to get this version as well.

You know you swung and missed when even Penny Arcade pans your game. I mean, if they buy into an IP, you have to turn out sacks of liquid crap to turn them off.

Yeah, I read that PA post as well. Those guys are really nice, and they rarely bash games, especially ones from their favorite IPs (which include ME). But they really do not like ME:A at all.

If only the Dolans would just sell everything. #longsufferingknicksfan

Yes, especially the Knicks. Last Knicks season I actually enjoyed was in 1998. That's 20 years of pain.

Yes, but as we learned yesterday, telling Dolan to sell the team, outside of MSG, is a bad thing. He'll call you an asshole to the media for insulting him in his place of business. Nevermind that you spent $200 for the privilege of attending that place.

He'll also say it's unfair, that you can yell at politicians because they're elected but not him because he's not. That'll make us scratch our heads, though, because that means politicians have some accountability, and he just happened to be born with absolutely no skills but a very, very rich father. Clearly, that means judging him for doing a bad job isn't fair and we should all quietly give him our money

Haha, well said.

Honestly, people think I'm wicked, cruel and heartless, but I've got nothing on Dolan.

If you have a realtor lined up try asking them for a contractor recommendation. Most have a short list of contractors they work with for repairs like this.

Seconded. The realtor I used to sell my last place also does gut renovations on old houses and is a licensed contractor himself. He was a mine of information on what to do and who to use for the job.

I already have PS:T installed and modded, and am about a third of the way through a replay, but the new features of the EE look really good. Not sure whether to get the PC version of the EE, or the Android version when it comes out.

Probably my all-time favorite RPG on the PC.

There's also a trailer - looks pretty neat. Day 1 purchase for me, for sure.

I have PS:T installed on this computer right here, and also on my Surface Pro 3. Once it's modded, you can run it at any resolution you want, and increase the size of the text/UI. There's a guide to modding it here:

https://www.gog.com/news/mod_spotlight_planescape_torment_mods_guide

Anyhow, I just wanted to mention that the font on the 'Plan Escape' countdown timer is the one used in the original game. So I guess an EE is in the works. Yay!

Planet Earth II is “need a new TV” propaganda—if you get the right version.

I haven't seen the 4k version of Planet Earth II, but I've watched a few episodes in 1080HD. It's the best wildlife show I've ever seen, bar none, and I've made a point of watching a lot of them over the years. Very recommended. It is absolutely stunning.

Anyone playing this game that can provide some opinions on how it is these days?

I played this for a while when it came out, and it was really good. Apparently these days it's even better - the expansion content has been really well reviewed.

The graphics are good, gameplay is fun, grouping is kinda optional but also fun, and the community (at least when I played) was good natured and light hearted.

I have played several MMORPGs and this was one I really enjoyed. Hope this helps!

I wish Carmack and Zenimax would just settle this and get on with making great games. This can't be good for the health of either side, it makes both sides look awful, and it's got to be bad for creativity and for business. The only winners here are their attorneys.

TLDR: they need to grow up, settle, then get along, and get back to what they do best.

Wow, if I had bought a 1080, I would be pretty annoyed by this. The Ti seems to replace that card since it is significantly faster and a similar price? Or am I getting my facts wrong?

Same here. Over the years I've obtained a bunch of free games from Origin, including Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2, Jade Empire and BF3. 17 games in all.

Funnily enough, I have never bought a game on Origin. Just the free ones.

Before you turn this into the Spanish Inquisition's "Confession Hour" perhaps you should read my post. It sheds light on the status of bible posts on this site moving forward. It made RedEye super happy.

Nobody expects The Inquisition.

Hhhhhmmmmm....yeah....when was his last post?

2 weeks ago. And no indication that he'd be out for a while. Whatever it was, it was sudden.

I have been worrying about this too. I hope he's OK.

Maybe Blue can head across the street and make sure he didn't accidentally lock himself in the van?

FFXIII-2 is my 2nd fav FF game of all time. Lits of people liked FFXIII-3, but I didn't, it has the "Majora's Mark" mechanic where the world is ending in X days, so everything you do feels rushed, I hate that shit in RPGs, I never finished Majora's Mask or FFXIII-3.

FFXIII-2 though is spectacular. Really gets back to the roots of what makes a FF game amazing after the abysmal FFXIII. Also the single best soundtrack in any videogame EVER.

FFXV is good too btw, I've replayed it twice. Can't wait for the new story DLC content. It's far from a perfect game, and many parts seem undercooked, but it's still a very fulfilling ride.
Thnx for the info!

Yes, thanks for all the info and reviews. I'll get this day one if it arrives on PC. FFXIV was absolutely great, and this one sounds really fun. Not perfect, but super immersive.

Oh, and as for this "review":

I never played Planescape: Torment (which came out in 1999), and had only vaguely heard of it recently when a Kickstarter campaign funded this thematic successor

I really don’t know what to make of Torment: Tides of Numenera (T:ToN). It has more reading than a text adventure, more multiple choice questions than an SAT exam, has more baffling machinery and doodads lying around than Myst, and what feels like more meandering and backtracking than a Family Circus comic strip.

Yeah, maybe you could have spent five minutes learning what Planescape Torment was, so you wouldn't be so confused by a SUCCESSOR to that game? Imbecile.

I agree. Reviewing this game without being aware of the backstory is like someone reviewing Rogue One without having seen the movie upon which it is based.

We have become aware of this individual's address, and thus have dispatched a squad of Uruk-Hai to take care of business. They will strap him to a chair, prop open his eyelids with toothpicks, and 'encourage' him to play through PS:T. Subsequently, he will be allowed to revise his review. Or they may just eat him, if they didn't get enough pizza at breakfast.

We do allow our agents some free will, after all.
