Report spelling/grammar errors
« on: December 22, 2012, 04:11:04 PM »
In this thread you can report spelling and grammar errors that you encounter (dialogs, item descriptions, etc). I'll update this post to note which ones I corrected, so please check it out before posting an already reported one. Forget it, can't be bothered to keep a list, so feel free to double post.

Thanks for the suggestion, Spinewire. ;)

After finding Mordre at the lake and asking him his name, he says: "I'd tell you that, but they I'd have to kill you. Just call me Mordre". I think the old joke is supposed to be: but "then" I'd have to kill you.

This may have already been pointed out, if so I apologize, just thought I'd mention it anyways.  I am currently playing as a female character and there have been few cases where other characters will say 'his' instead of 'hers' when referring to me.  I'm sorry I can't remember exactly where it occurred, but I know it happened at least twice in my play-through so far.

I know where one of the occurrences is at least.

If you run into it again please let me know who were you talking to.

thanks.

The email from Tanner welcoming me to the stations says "I welcome you into our folds". I think it should say I welcome you into our fold.

Also in the tool-tip for "Controlled Zones" the 3rd point says "If members of certain factions discovery traps or explosives planted by you...". Its should be "discover", not "discovery".

I'm getting pedantic now...but the tool-tip for "Burst" would sound better if it was changed from

"Rapidly fires five bullets at reduced precision. This attack also has chance to miss the primary target and hit other characters in the line of fire instead"

to

"Rapidly fires five bullets with reduced precision. This attack also has a chance to miss the primary target, possibly hitting other characters in the line of fire instead"

Dr Pasquale:
"You see, test results show that you have certain amount of psionic potential."

Tricky one this is...

Either

"You see, test results show that you have a certain amount of psionic potential."

or

"You see, test results show that you have certain amounts of psionic potential."

Pasquale again...and this one is really nit-picking...


He says "such as influencing minds of others" instead of "such as influencing the minds of others"
