Hard to find an English source, but good news for those who like turn-based strategy roleplaying whatever-you-call-it games, like @.Volsung. : Blackguards 2 has been announced.
Grim Fandango HD remake I hear, hmmmm.
They can't leave the computer out, they just can't!
May the crushing force of a thousand elemental spirits from the land of the dead shatter their bones and replace them with packing material if they do!
Perhaps not?It's gonna be a PS exclusve (PS4 and Vita).
One of the more annoying chapters for me was toward the beginning before I had the opportunity to put points into anyone's body control. The chapter with the crypt lice and the stalactites, specifically. The lice weren't a problem, but using magic had a nasty tendency to knock down the stalactites on top of my characters, and the camera made it impossible to tell where they would fall. Very annoying, and there were a few other chapters like that where I couldn't help but feel that the environment cheapened the otherwise solid tactical elements. Especially the stage with the poison vapor that acts like a time limit. What a middle finger that one was.1) environmental hazards are either part of the challenge or avoided with high body control.
At release you weren't able to save between multi-stage fights, meaning losing one fight in the arena (and many other multi-part fights toward the end) knocked you all the way back to the beginning. So much frustration. But yeah, I've heard that they fixed that in a patch, and mid-battle saves would definitely cheapen it.3) Saves work OK. There are manual saves, quick saves, autosaves and "this battle" saves. You can't save IN battle but I'm fine with that, it would be greatly exploited otherwise possibly nullifying risk and planning.
