Also the point about the alien speak , tiny white text which flashes on the screen at light speed , you try reading it out to a partially sighted person , its impossible it doesnt even stay on screen long enough , was this tested at all ? Did your testers even read it out loud ? Fix both issues please , its ruining the fun of the game.
FYI If you click on Other tab at the top of the chat box, you'll see all the dialog from the cut scenes as well as from your companion. You can scroll that and re read any of it.
