    Am mildly considering getting back into this, albeit with the ps4 version instead of PC because playing on a big TV sounds fun. Is it pretty playable on console, as a healer especially? Wouldn't want...

    I enjoyed this somewhat at Pax. I'd probably buy it on a steam sale for $10 and have some fun with it, but $40 for full price on steam seems a bit silly high for a game that looks pretty but doesn't...
