    They actually said that the spell effects were JRPG inspired.

    Yes they did. But why? It corrupts a pure western RPG.

    In all my decades of gaming, I never came across a single pure western RPG. Same with a pure eastern RPG, pure northern RPG and pure southern RPG. Something tells me there is more to it than the country of origin.

    Forgive me if I'm strict. But I don't like random encounters in the Undersigil to get stuff randomly and to be forced to watch clips of the magics again and again.
    I liked the mod that add storylines to let you get the most powerful weapon without cheat (even thought I've never played as a fighter because it's a waste in a game such as PST).
    I call pure western RPG a game that needn't luck (I mean real luck, not stat) to discover every feature. Hack and slash are an exception of course. Random treasures in IWD are at limit.

    I'm firing off the console at that moment.
    I remember very vividly the tiring grind of just saving in Sigil, going down the stairs, saving in a new slot, hiding in shadows and searching the Undersigil with Annah for Glabrezus.
    If Glabrezu spawned, load last save, hack and slash through hosts of trelons and worms, kill Glab, loot. Nothing? Rinse and repeat until something finally drops.

    And it drops the same item twice suitable to only one character (gauntlet of Grace; dagger of Annah)... crap.

    Okay, aside from the fact that I completely reject your complaint here, your previous post seemed to imply you were annoyed that they didn't acknowledge JRPG influence, which they did.

    Also, random loot is pretty Western RPG, esp. in the D&D mold.

    Recently, the GOG's official Twitch channel made another livestream with Chris Avellone.

    It was a nearly two hour long interview with some live gameplay of Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition in the background. Watch here.

    I checked up on Beamdog's twitch channel, but the video is not there (don't know if it ever was, though). Is the stream online somewhere as a VOD so that I could go watch it now?

    @procco Awsome! Thanks a bunch! Weird that I didn't get a notification about it on YouTube even though I'm subbed to Beamdog's channel there.

    The youtube link got taken down. Can anybody reupload it? Or is it memory holed forever? @JuliusBorisov

    Ehh, I hate to be the annoying guy, but is the video gone forever? Or do you guys at Beamdog have it in some archive? @JuliusBorisov

    The video has been taken down. Not sure we'll be able to restore it, sorry.

    I didn't like that either, but the game did not remotely force you to do so. There weren't any difficult combat checks that required you to grind to beat them - so I don't see this as an issue at all. It's something you can do if you want to play some more.

    EDIT: but late, haha, but since it got pulled up again anyway.
