60%

Ouch...this review actually goes a little deeper into detail on the game. And damn...it actually calls the game RPGLite....Double damn.

In fairness, 31 of the 35 reviews currently on Metacritic score it at 80% or higher.

http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/torment-tides-of-numenera

The one you quoted is the lowest of the lot, and so is not really representative of the whole.

I loved the original, and I like lots of text in my RPGs, so am expecting to enjoy this one. We will see.

Bleh, I bought this via the Bard's Tale Kickstarter, but so far there is nothing on how to reclaim my key from InXile/Kickstarter.


You just have to go to the InXile Backer Rewards page and redeem your key for Steam or GOG. The link is here.

This is true. I have a weakness for kittens, especially fluffy ones.

People, please report back if the game is any good.

It's getting good reviews.

PC Gamer gives it 89%.

Hope this helps!

I already redeemed my key on GOG.

Sadly, I will be hard at work running the Wicked Empire of Doom today, and so won't get to put my slippers on and play it until after dinner this evening.

confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths

Making this was fun. I even got my own director's chair on the set.

Good morning all!

Does anyone know how the release of Torment:Tides of Numenerererera is gonna be handled for Kickstarter backers? Do we get an unlock code, or something?

Thanks for any information!

OK, in honor of National Chili Day, I guess I'll post my previously secret hotsauce recipe, straight from the vault:

Sauronís Habanero Sauce

Ingredients
2 cups applesauce
6 habanero peppers (preferably home grown)
1-2 scotch bonnet peppers (preferably home grown)
Juice from two limes
Tablespoon salt
Two and a half cups apple cider
One or two cups apple-cider vinegar
Two shots of bourbon
Pinch of Spanish paprika if desired

Instructions
Sterilize 4 small mason jars (wash thoroughly, dry, then heat in oven at 250C for 30 minutes, allow to cool in oven).
Slice peppers in half, remove seeds and stems, mince.
Place applesauce and peppers in saucepan with lime juice, salt, paprika and one cup apple cider. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for eight minutes.
Add vinegar, bourbon, and remaining apple cider. Cover pan and cook on medium heat for three minutes.
Remove lid, simmer for three minutes. Allow to cool 3-4 minutes.
Pour the sauce into sterilized mason jars, apply lids and allow to cool to room temperature. The jars will seal.
*Store in refrigerator (1 jar, for eating), or freeze (other jars, for longer term storage).

Serve over smoked hobbit and a fresh baguette. Enjoy!

*If pH of the sauce is low (<5, I believe) the jars should theoretically be safe to store at room temperature, but I have never tried this.

I actually did play Xenoblade via Dolphin, and several other games. But Dolphin never got Wii Motion Plus emulated correctly last I checked, and certain games just never worked anyways (like Metroid).

I just use a wirelss PS4 controller via a USB adaptor, and then adjust the input config in Dolphin. It's pretty easy to set up, and seems to work flawlessly, at least for most games and including Xenoblade. I'm pretty sure you could do the same with a wireless XBone controller, or a Steam controller.

Hope this helps! HD gaming on the couch at last.

Retailers don't get price protection from Nintendo so they strictly limit stock to avoid inventory writeoffs. The consequence is that between that and Nintendo's bullshit artificial scarcity tactics with various things you often pay absurd prices for their products even years later.

This is right on the money. Nintendo's sales tactics are really annoying.

But having said that, there are some really good games for the Wii. My favorite is probably Xenoblade Chronicles, although the Wii version still costs like $60 even now since it only had a limited release in the US. It plays a bit like Final Fantasy XII and may be a bit better than that game IMHO.

Although actually, the best way to play X:C is probably the re-release on the new 3DS/XL, or to rip your Wii disc (legally) to PC and then play it upsampled to 4K on a gaming PC attached to a HDTV via Dolphin emulator.

I've played a bunch of MMOs, and think GW2 was probably the most accessible, and one of the most fun. FFXIV is also very good, and has a great community of really nice, friendly people.

Lord of the Rings Online is another very fun MMO, with a great community. Although sadly, torturing elves and consumption of hobbits are frowned upon...

Anyone willing to part with a first-round draft-pick for Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony? Oh well, no harm in asking.

Anyone willing to part with a hot dog and a beer for James Dolan and the entire Madison Square Garden front office? Nope, didn't think so either...

I also would sell my first born for a new real NWN game.

I still find it mind-blowing that there was never a 4th Edition DnD CRPG. That version of the game justifiably got a lot of flack from the tabletop community, but a lot of the stuff that pissed off the tabletop crowd would have translated EXTREMELY well to CRPG play. Never happened though, and here we are, 2.5 years into the 5th Ed era -- another great candidate for a CRPG which simultaneously doesn't piss off the tabletop fans -- and still NO FUCKING CRPG VERSIONS!

I'd love a CRPG based on 5E - it's the first version of the game I've really enjoyed since 1E, all those years ago. Seems to strip out all the unnecessary mechanics and focus on the story, which for me is where it's at.

I guess my only minor gripe with tabletop 5E so far is that the adventures have been a little predictable, with the exception of Out of the Abyss. If WotC released a Planescape supplement, I'd be all over it.

Ok, seriously though, has anyone here ever had "postoperative myalgia"? Jesus Christ, I feel like I've been run over by a truck several times. I literally hurt head to toe, even in places I didn't know I can hurt. My understanding is the comes from the drug "scoline" they use under general anesthesia - apparently it causes all your muscles to continually contract and relax in order to help move blood and oxygen while you're under. They say it can last 2-3 days but I don't see much on treatment for it...


It's succinylcholine, a depolarizing muscle relaxant:

Succinylcholine

Sorry it's hurting, man. Feel better soon.

Yeah, I kinda figured you'd know. Anything to do for it besides ride it out? Google is surprisingly short on how to treat it considering it's supposed to be pretty common. I'm getting my morphine prescription - as I don't do well with codeine - so I'm hoping that helps. Thanks.

I think painkillers, rest, and time will eventually take care of it. But do be careful with morphine - that stuff is strong and it can be dangerous.
