I bought Wasteland3 but somehow managed to gimp my characters in just the right way that I can't progress past a certain point. (I keep getting hammered) I actually like the game, Wasteland2 was a snoozefest by comparison, but I feel the game is still much too focused on combat and the tactical encounters than on the role playing aspects. Maybe I just suck at it. Will try it again at some point.
It's definitely combat heavy, and definitely favors ranged over melee, unless you have some very good weapons and armor. Grenades also don't scale well at all. That said, there is a save editor
out there, which I have used purely to respec my guys a bit, since I made plenty of 'mistakes' in my pre-game and early game choices. Also, ambush/attacking first is far, far superior to letting the enemies start combat or catch you unaware. Almost ridiculously so. If you know you're going to have to fight, just attack first!
Specialized in 1 weapon >> mediocre in two weapons. I did make one purely skill guy, and everybody else is maybe 1 or 2 skills at high level besides their combat skill. Animal Tamer or whatever it's called is super strong in W3, even toaster repair isn't bad on a heavy weapons guy. It's weird. I'm going to replay the Wasteland 2 Director's Cut version again after I finish this, just to compare the two and refresh my memory.
