His real name is Lostar, but he was given the nickname “Crazy Fuse” because of the way he goes out of control when he loses his temper. Although known for his problematic behavior, he has a strong sense of duty as a patrolman and his natural perception and decisiveness have given him a high rate of criminal arrests. Even today, he is investigating incidents throughout the Regions.

Pessimist me: Where's the question mark at the end of Asellus' sentence? Squeenix's localisation at its best /s
Optimist me: Hopefully that screenshot is not from Release Candidate build, and they will do another editing pass.

I'm interested, but this screen is all kind of revolting, on every level.
With all the resources Squeenix had, would it kill them to hire a UI engineer to specifically work on the PC interface? This mobile UI shite ruins the experience for me.

Preordered it on GMG with the store credit I got from my Bloodlines 2 refund. Maybe it will make me go back to Scarlet Grace and be more likely to pick up the 2 and 3 remasters
