Lacerate! At least, that's what my rogue character does. I just figure that's why there's so much blood in there. That mode is pretty much active all the time for me. But I do agree. Sometimes it's just like, 'GOD what did you guys just DO? Crush the poor guy?" Especially because it always seems to end up all over everyone's face. How do they even see with all that gut and gore in their eyes? Wouldn't that sting?
I remember first playing the game and just laughing my ass off when people's innards started exploding over me. It never seemed over the top to me, just like...perfect. "I shall bathe in the blood of my enemies, mmm yes."
