I have my gripes with this game, but it sure ain't the fashion. Currently enjoying the hell out of this weird miscolored (pants could use some work) swordsman-esque-but-not-really look. Quickstep for life.
I'm almost certainly over exaggerating by saying that I've never wanted a sequel more, but I've gotta say that I really hope the positive coverage here gives a hope for another adventure (hopefully a point-and-click adventure, if I'm being honest) in this little world. By the end I was absolutely eating all of it up and I didn't even care that it controls like an Ultima game if they only used four of the keys on the keyboard but what stuck was Zstats and other such nonsense.
I could watch Ryan Rand chew up scenery all fucking day.
This is making me itch to finally play one of the however many copies of this I have. Too bad I'm only just knee-deep in Wasteland 2 because I still need to take Wiz8 off of my CRPG checklist. I took 7 off a year or two ago and it's only expected that I experience the hellish abyss of Arnika Road for myself.
Not gonna lie, the best thing about that Charles Dexter Ward game is the Charles model looks exactly like H.P. Lovecraft. Which is great since CDW is probably the most self-insertion Lovecraft ever did.
Then I kept reading about it and S.T. Joshi is doing advisory work, and then I remembered where Agustin Cordes' name was so familiar - I loved Scratches (also I've got the reading comprehension of a seven year old apparently because Patrick put it right the fuck there). Suddenly this game seems really fucking cool to me, and I'm always struggling to figure out if The Case... is my favorite Lovecraft or not so now I'm putting money into this thing.
