comment How can the PS3 do so much with so little RAM and VRAM?
@Mechko That is wrong -- the bluray drive is nowhere near fast enough to stream textures real-time. That's why PCs have RAM in the first place -- the HDD is too slow.

comment Help! I walk through every door I try to open!
Yup. On the version of TFTD that I played, CTRL+click also worked to open dooors, and I think also tapping the directional arrows.

comment What's this exact quote from Lost Eden?
@Solivagant, this really is an answer IMO. Are you not able to better pin down the exact time when the quote occurs?

Yes, I guess your original idea was in the right direction.

comment Venom and companions
Yes, you can... you should already be able to see it when you look at the things that are available for crafting. It's not an unlockable.

@bwa I've only ever noticed it for the "unfavourable" agreements. Apparently these are either the only such things taken into account, or simply much more heavily weighted than other "fairer" agreements. Perhaps in the future we will have better access to all of the game mechanics and we can see more precisely what is at work. To make this more explicit, I've edited the answer.

@bwa I don't have any proof, I never saw the source code. But I do have experience playing the game and it certainly seems to work in a similar way. Are you saying you have proof that it doesn't work? Then add another answer!

I didn't see it specifically, I just used familiar words for the mechanic at work.
