Blackwell Epiphany had Lia Pierro shooting herself in the head on-screen, so it did seem odd that they censored a similar scene in Unavowed. Also, the event in Epiphany does look like a cardboard cutout falling over, so it could hardly have been worse in the newer game.

Edit: corrected name

Bisexual people exist!

Fair enough, though the outlines in the photo are the same in both cases and the figure on top seems more feminine in shape.

Honestly? Everything we tried looked cartoony and dumb. She could only fall forward and she looked like a cardboard cutout no matter how many times Ben tweaked it. So I just settled for the cut to black.

Well, the way the General moves is also cartoony and dumb, and the people on the boat are standing impassively, not swaying in the slightest with the motion of the boat. I understand that there are engine limitations and such, but a cardboard cutout falling forward wouldn't exactly look out of place in that scene.

And the cook keeps cooking, and the dudette in the dressing room keeps applying makeup until you give the disguise to Kevin...

There's approximately 38000 police officers in New York City, they can't all know each other. There was nothing to indicate that Durkin and Kendra's mother were ever at the same precinct, so it is reasonable that she doesn't know him.

Vicki knowing all those other cops and security types far from Staten Island, however...

KayKay only appeared to Logan sometime after Jonah died, it would not have been instantaneous. In Blackwell, Joey only appeared to Rosa after she had tossed her aunt's ashes in the river, so at least a few days passed between Lauren's death and Joey appearing before Rosa.

Another little thing: in the bartender prologue, the villain kills Jonah, then Sammy and presumably walks out of the bar. Wouldn't Logan be the most likely third victim, seeing as he was standing outside hoping for Jonah to come out and probably wouldn't have time to get out of range even if he ran away the moment he heard gunshots.

Unavowed / Timeline strangeness.

Mandana claims to be 419 years old. Jason Grant is stated to have died in 2017, so the game is probably set in late 2017 or the first half of 2018. Mandana must have been born in 1598 at the earliest, so how was she able to be with Calliope in Havana in 1592?

Also, Sam Durkin was a college student at the time of Blackwell Unbound, before Rosa was even born. If it was the mid-70s it suggests that he was born in the second half of the 50s, 1960 at the latest. He must be close to 60 at the time of Unavowed - most police officers retire from active duty before they reach that age. Yet he looks to be in his mid-40s at the most?

Did another playthrough where I killed as many opponents as possible. Turned out that only the Fae (hit by fireball from Eli and dissolves) and the Dragon (turns a golden colour and dissolves) get on-screen deaths, everyone else has a fade-to-black or dies offscreen (Jordon). Again, the inconsistency seems strange.

Edit: I used Eli for all the missions, presumably Mandana will use her sword if Eli isn't present. I guess they wanted to save on animations again (fade-to-black means not having to show them burned by Eli's fireball or cut up by Mandana's sword), but it still doesn't explain Harrison's suicide.

More oddities:
- The antagonist seduced Art Eddings, regardless of which sex you chose. Art being married to a woman suggests that he is heterosexual, so it comes a bit out of left field that a male could easily seduce him. Was it the original plan to have the male seduce Jess instead?

- If you tell the General to take Harrison with him, she shoots herself in the head, only the screen fades to black, we hear a gunshot and splash, and when it fades in again she is gone from the boat. The game didn't shy away from showing gore and violence in other scenes, so what was the reason for the censorship? Simply too difficult to animate properly?

- The player character looks the exact same regardless of origin.  He or she doesn't even modify their outfit over the course of an entire year. Presumably this was done to save effort on sprites, but it still seems strange.

Another thing about Blackwell ties: early on, it is revealed that Kalash knew about an active Bestower in New York in the recent past, but declined to make contact. Obviously, this is supposed to be a reference to either Rosa or, less likely, Michael Cooper from Epiphany. Thing is, we know that Bestowing passes through bloodlines. The first one we know of in Rosa's line was the uncle of Jocelyn Contis, then Jocelyn, Patricia (apparently one of her parents was supposed to be Jocelyn's cousin), then Lauren and finally Rosa. Michael Cooper states that two of his older siblings were Bestowers with Madeleine as a Spirit Guide before him and that it quickly drove them to their deaths.

Now, the reason to mention this is the question of how Jonah got to be a Bestower. Logan doesn't mention any other relatives that acted strange before Jonah did, so this raises the question: are they part of Rosa's line somehow (their spirit guide is the last regular spirit that Rosa and Joey sent on), or Michael's, or a third line? And why were the Unavowed aware of only one Bestower?

An unrelated odd thing is how everybody is New York and immediate surroundings falling unconscious at once at the end of Epiphany seemingly had no noticeable impact on society. Nobody even mentions it happening, and while there is a 9/11 memorial  on Staten Island, nobody put up a memorial to those killed when the vehicles they were travelling in crashed or they tumbled down the staircase they were walking on.

Unavowed / Funny thing about Logan's recruitment mission (spoiler)
« on: August 28, 2018, 08:22:22 AM »
When the gang reaches the house, the front door is locked and all the windows intact. How did Logan get in? He didn't mention anything about having a key, and even if he did he wouldn't have had a compelling reason to lock the front door behind him.
