Compared to the classic counterparts, what has changed aside from graphics for the HD versions? For one, I noticed that magic resistance (for both PC and enemies) seem to cap at 90%, thus making it impossible to achieve magic immunity (thank you, now magic is a viable means of playstyle). Another thing I noticed is that skills can be increased over the old limit of 100. What's the new skill level cap?
Also, while fiddling around with Macha's Curse, I noticed that the introductory message from in-game character addresses PC by appropriate gender. Can we expect a more noticeable mentions like this in other games too? Not just the gender differences but also the race?
Also (also) can I ask why a lot of expansion maps are always square blocks, all wedged together? The base game and Ice and Fire had world maps that actually resembled how worlds would look. Any chance we could get these back? Pretty please (with cherry on top)?
