Planescape: Torment - Enhanced Edition


11 comments:

  1. Chris seems to have been heavily involved, no new quests or anything. "restored content" mod is not included as chris feels the cut content was cut for a reason. UI remains extremely similar to original PST with some fixups to things you mentioned. Just some misc comments, also http://i.imgur.com/vY2304l.jpg

    1. Yeah, I'm sure a lot of ppl are. I'm just interested in how it plays on my PC.

  3. lol @ calling Tides of Numenera a major fuck up. Planescape: Torment is probably my favorite game of all time, and I loved the hell out of Tides. It wasn't Planescape: Torment 2, and it was never meant to be.

    Anyway.. Looking forward to this enhanced edition. Been wanting to replay it for years now. Should be a good time!

    1. Opinions and assholes, I guess. It was marketed as a spiritual successor and failed utterly. I don't like these Unity RPGs. They don't come close to the Infinity Engine ones. The whole Kickstarter renaissance is bollocks. There was only one renaissance, and it was brought on by Fallout and Baldur's Gate.

  4. "aVENGER should be in charge of combat scenarios (scripting, AI etc.)"

    That would be amazing! His 'chosen of Cyric' encounter had just the right balance between cheesiness (a bit, but not too much) and difficulty (high, but not over-the-top), imo.

    1. You're right about that, chimaera. I'm planning on doing a write-up for the Chosen of Cyric in the future, since I'm churning out shorter posts now. It'll just be how my party handled it, along with some pics.

    2. It'll be interesting to read how a full party manages this battle. I've only played it with a party of two mages (and still had to raise one of them at the temple afterwards ;-) ).

  5. I'm not a fan of EEs, or Beamdog in general. I've left their forums, before SoD was announced. PS:T EE doesn't look as terrible, as the other EEs, but who knows what bugs will be introduced this time. Last time they advertised their title with Avellone's name, didn't turn out so well in my opinion, so I'll be watching closely.

    Also, once again the original will be removed from GOG and instead will have to be bought with the EE.

    1. Aren't the originals bundled with the EEs on GoG? I have the originals (CD and GoG versions) and will always favor them over the EE, so it doesn't bother me. But yeah, I can see where you're coming from.
