Hmm major must mean something different in Greedland. I think the word in American would be incidental. Not that the game needs all that much patching anyway. It is pretty sturdy all things considered.

To be fair, it's major in the sense that they seem to have taken steps to address a number of the "fixable" points raised in reviews that I've seen. I'd suggest that gives the impression that they are listening to feedback, and are willing to improve the experience, not just bugfix.

Note that I haven't yet played this one - it's on my birthday list in a week or so

The cutscene fix is good. So often there'd be a dialog, and the camera would be completely blocked by one of the characters standing in the way.

But yes, the game was really smooth at launch. I've noticed a few typos, but nothing major. One big bug happened: when I killed the guy in charge in the training pit (not the arena), he got knocked through the wall and became un-lootable.

Not sure how they'd fix this but: it feels like battles are either super-easy with almost zero effort involved. Or impossible. Even some creatures in the woods near the beginning can tear me up in seconds. And it's an ambush: I simply cannot beat that encounter. I know, I know, come back later… I will. But it still feels like difficulty is just Really Easy or Damn Near Impossible. And when it's difficult like that, you basically get no time to do anything about it, even with the pause feature.

If an enemy is a much higher level than your party, you can see it before you engage them because they'll have a skull icon next to their health bar. If you're not sure, go into sneak mode and get close enough to focus on them before they see you.

Some enemies are going to be tough the first time you face them regardless of level because you don't know what they can do. i.e. inflict poison, etc. Once you know what they're capable of, prepare the appropriate counter before you engage them. I never felt like enemies were impossible unless they were simply too high a level at the time.

I purchased the game again since the camera patch is in - nope, I'm still getting sick. Plus, it seem to run worse than before on my PC. I have no idea why. Played around with settings but can't get it run smoothly anymore.

I'm thinking of picking up console version since I will sit further away from the screen.

Is that ironic?

Is the "sickening" effect from "mouse acceleration"?

I find there's a kind of momentum to the camera. Instead of just stopping when the control input is stopped, the camera still moves just a little, as if it's slowed quickly as it's stopped. I don't get sick from the game, but this momentum feel to movement and camera gives it a sense of drunkenness to me. It's unpleasant to me, but not horrible.

I'm not sure if mouse acceleration is the correct term here.
