I'd buy this without a second thought... if it weren't holiday season. After buying Christmas presents for other people and now with the Steam sale coming up, I really don't have much extra spending money. I will probably get it in a month or two.

'Dark' Sparkles - a mirror of the original Sparkles and is somehow even more unstable and dangerous than normal Sparkles

[sounds of Caleb screaming in the distance]

Wouldn't that just be Brighteyes, the killer gnome from The New World campaign?

What games have you bought or are planning to buy?

I got a 4-pack deal for Hammerwatch for less than $10. Hammerwatch is a hack-and-slash action RPG similar to Gauntlet or Diablo, I gifted the copies to a few friends and we will be trying the co-op mode soon.

I can only speak from the quickstarter rules since I did not back the kickstarter nor buy the PDF.

As with any edition change, there's a few things I like and some which I don't like all that much.

The things I like:
Finally, Hide and Move Silently have been fused into a single Stealth skill.
Similarly, I'm glad that Firearms and Fighting have been simpolified. No longer will there be investigators with a 70% Headbutt skill and 20% at Kicking, or who have 90% on rifle and 15% on submachine gun.
Resistance Tables needed to die, so I'm glad they got rid of that.
Character creation is a bit simpler now, but I feel like it means there's less character customization than previous editions.

The things I don't like all that much:
Can't Listen and Spot Hidden just be made into a single Perception skill?
There's too much overlap between social skills. Charm and Persuade are basically the same, and if anything I think Charm could be substituted with an Appearance roll.
Similarly, do we really need separate skills for Electrical Repair, Mechanical Repair, and Operate Heavy Machinery? You could just put those all together, and maybe stick Locksmith in there somewhere.
I feel like the Bonus Dice and Penalty Dice mechanic is a needless addition. Just adding a bonus or a penalty to a skill check is good enough in my opinion.
Combat looks like is getting more complicated with the chance to do or receive damage outside of turn as a 'reaction' to attacks.
There's still the whole 'impaling' mechanic only working with some weapons and not others. I don't really understand the logic, but whatever.
No more doubling firearm rolls when in close combat, now its using a bonus die. Again, make things more complicated.

So in the end, it's just Call of Cthulhu with some skills joined together and with Bonus and Penalty dice rules tacked on. I think I will stick with 6th ed since it seems to be simply easier to use and I dislike the new bonus and penalty rules. I stayed away from Resistance Tables anyways and I liked to just hand-wave the weird skill separations.

I will agree that Trail is better suited for investigation-heavy scenarios anyways.

Killing Floor 2 is introducing the M.E.A.T. system for gore. It stands for Massive Evisceration And Trauma. See why:
