Torment: Tides of Numenera Fixes Are Coming Says InXile Boss

Torment: Tides of Numenera has been out for a week now and it’s mostly been met with positive reviews (check out our review here). But those playing the game on the PlayStation 4 aren’t all having a smooth ride as everyone else. Many have encountered technical issues such as the game crashing, unbearably long load times, frame rate drops, jerky animation, and game-breaking bugs. All is not last for Torment on the PS4 though as the game’s producer Brian Fargo has told Eurogamer that they’re aware of the issues and are already working on updates. We are aware of the frame-rate dropping down on a few of the larger areas with Torment and we are on the case working on a solution. The game is still quite enjoyable but we will continue to provide updates to improve the experience, as we do with all our games. Fargo did not specify if the studio was working on fixing all the issues currently plaguing the PS4 version of the game or when the updates would be released. Torment: Tides of Numenera is the spiritual successor of Planescape: Torment, one of the most critically-acclaimed role-playing games of the ‘90s. Torment: READ FULL STORY…

Torment: Tides of Numenera PC review – When tons of reading and RPG collide

Torment is the spiritual successor of Planescape: Torment, a narrative RPG released in 1999. Brian Fargo from inXile and some of the original developers of Planescape: Torment successfully crowd funded this game via Kickstarter, just like they did with Wasteland 2, in order to bring us a type of RPG that we don’t see very often. Instead of using the… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Torment: Tides Of Numenera: The Kotaku Review

“What does one life matter?” is the question at the heart of Torment: Tides of Numenera. Initially shapeless, the question solidifies around heady concepts like legacy. Not so coincidentally, few games can boast a more lasting legacy than Numenera’s spiritual predecessor, Planescape Torment. Advertisement Tides of Numenera is the Kickstarter-borne spiritual follow-up to Planescape, a 1999 cult classic. Numenera is a single-player RPG with an emphasis on text and dialogue, and while it’s not set in the same universe as Planescape, it approaches similar themes from intriguingly different angles. Oh, it’s also similar to Planescape in that it’s really fucking good. Let’s just get this out of the way: People revere Planescape Torment. The game took players on a journey through a world wilder and weirder than any other PC RPG from the mid-to-late ‘90s. It moved the focus off combat and put it squarely on dialogue, interactions, and gleeful oddity. You could talk your way through the majority of dicey situations, whether you decided to leverage raw charisma, labyrinthine philosophy, or the subtle art of killing yourself to make a point. It showed people what PC-style RPGs could be if developers dared to chuck the old template into a…


Torment: Tides of Numenera Review – Console Torment (PS4)

The PC Master Race may hate it, but I enjoy it when cRPGs come to console. I never would have played Diablo III without the console port, and I greatly enjoyed my PS4 romp with Divinity: Original Sin when it crossed over. Obsidian has always said that Pillars of Eternity won’t make the leap, but now we have a game that utilizes PoE‘s engine release on console and PC. InXile Entertainment launched a Kickstarter for their spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment called Torment: Tides of Numenera. Thanks to the vast amount of money they raised, they agreed to release the game on PC and console at the same time. It’s not often this happens simultaneously. Usually, the game is built with either the PC or console platform in mind, and then they port the game to the other with major reconfigurations for the control scheme. The porting process often takes a few months, if not a year to complete. If it’s rushed, it’s often plagued with disaster, such as the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight or the console version of Book of Unwritten Tales 2. In the case of Torment: Tides of Numenera, I’m afraid this PS4 configuration should have been left in the oven for a bit longer. On READ…
