Where is the humor??? lol
Have you been watching these <animated> cinematic dialogues?? Monty python levels of humor there.
The head movements/ body movement while listening.
Long pauses between lines
Starting dialogues behind objects.
Dipping your weapon then starting a dialogue.
Unresponsive lifeless companions in the background while in conversations.
Larian is going to be busy. NOT changing any of the discussed gameplay feedback, but mostly with the cinematics/bugs until release...
Yeah that's actually one of the problems right there. They try to emote with exaggerated body movements for reactions one would normally use just their eyes or their face. Since they can't articulate - well enough - the facial features (like a subtle squint for example), they have compensate for it in some other way.
The technology is just not there yet (unless they make everyone run the latest hardware and go all out on real-time photo-realistic rendering or something).
