Planescape: Torment – Cane and Rinse No.398

“Time is not your enemy, forever is.”

A rare foray into the world of the Western CRPG for us, but 1999’s Planescape: Torment ticks a lot of boxes. Leon, James, Jon and guest Sean Bell contemplate the nature of humanity and its relationship with impermanence, as well as why you shouldn’t play the Switch ports of 20 year old games that were designed specifically for mouse and keyboard. As usual we also incorporate pandimensional missives from those who have already trodden their own tormented path through the Planescape.

  1. I stumbled across this whilst looking for reviews of old CRPGs on Switch. Interesting the show notes mention that there are reasons you shouldn’t play ports of 20 year old RPGs designed for mouse and keyboard on a Switch – the ports of these old games are all really good and control very well, almost every review mentions how well they translate! I’m playing BG1 on Switch now and having a great time!
