Neither was Witcher 1 or 2. The only difference is your personal level of appreciation.

The argumentation simply fails when you're aware of the company history, structure and organisation of Topware. Most arguments are based on names and locations. But in the end its only semantics,…

Not necessarily. You just had to reach the portal, so the easiest way was simply to rush through the area and not to pick up any gauntlet. Combat avoided, takes half a minute or less. Try that in…

Not exactly. I was socialized to games with Dune 2, Command & Conquer and Wing Commander, not Battle Isle or Panzer General. It wasn't exactly Realms of Arkania that turned me to CRPGs, it actually…

I'm aware of the Crisis concept. Unfortunately the thing I like even less than turn-based combat is completely turn-based action, unless I'm in good company.

Crisis isn't rocket science. It's an…

Na. Don't expect it too soon. Early Access of Wasteland 2 wasn't that short. I guess inXile won't miss the chance to re-iterate some more months based on that feedback.

I only hope that I can…

I don't think sea is a noob to CRPGs. So I guess he must have meant something else, when he wrote he could see a benefit for himself. Of course, that's an assumption.

I know, but the nautical reference comes from Klaus & Klaus. And if you take a closer look at Topware games in general you can find several hints towards the 80ies.

No, that's definitely Topware humor. In the 80ies, in Germany the melody was used for a successful german comedy Schlager song, called "An der Nordseeküste". This seems a reference to it.

Normally, it's always better to buy Oldies on GOG, because they invest time and money to get their games running on modern systems. On Steam it's up to the publisher.
