Spoilers ..I guess...
The mandatory Gale message combined with the step-by-step revival instructions combined with the Gale necrosis thing is a bunch of horsesh*t. Really. Its the opposite of fun. My entire party died while I was in the inventory screen trying to do the thing. I also tried walking away from the body (no good) and other means of reviving (didn't work). It wiped out the party and sent me back to the beginning of a long hard-fought battle that I now have to fight again .. and then if Gale dies, try to figure out the stupid pouch-flute-letter-BS thing again. So, instead, F' it. I am out.
In other commentary: the dialogue is hokey and the armor and weapons are Saturday morning cartoonish, but the underlying subversive nature of the plot and the tadpole are brilliant. I'd like to see camera angles improve (mainly meaning be able to view more "up" - this is a very vertical game given that the high-ground actually means something, and without the ability to get down to our character's level and look up, its difficult sometimes to even know there is a place you can get to if its above you.
P.S. REALLY hated the Gale necrosis/message/pouch-flute-pull-my-pinky crap.
