Hmmm I've owned, but done nothing with the URL voxclamant.com for 10+ years. Let me see about using it to be a central archive of older pieces that were run on various sites. For anything…

Aye. 'Tis sad to see where things are, and worse where they are going. Forced online, $10 DLCs that give you an hour of linear play, preorder incentives that try to get an uninformed purchase by…

Interesting — like almost all the reviews I have seen so far these reviews are about the original game that is part of the DKS package, and not really much about the FoV expansion.

I am baffled by the obsession in the other forums on the size of the playing world. Sometimes I even wonder if the people making those statements have even played the game. About the only way I can…

DKS is just the original plus the expansion Flames of Vengeance. The "remastered" part barely shows on a high-end computer — maybe it helps low-end units more.

Div2 (Original) is long and…

Outstanding analysis Skaven!

I hate to see even more evidence how the term RPG is being diluted. The reviewer, sadly, probably is accurate in describing what more and more developers seem to…

Follow-up …

No clue why, yet, but in 2 hours since making the graphics change I have had no crashes. I was having 3-4 an hour at zone transitions.

The more I play this, the more I like it.

30+ hours into a very good RPG. Combat, magic and crafting make some nice improvements over most recent offerings. The story is good, but does not…

I have played quite a bit and explored a lot — largely empty expanses is one of the few design issues that I found quite disappointing. You can explore large areas that have no quests, no…

Interesting — I find the design exceptional, and the implementation very poor. Quests, crafting, magic, mon-linearity, story and new fighting are quite good — weakened only by the overly high degree…

Spot on, Skaven!! IW2 has always been a favorite to replay — whatever "genre" you apply to it, it has that intangible thing called "fun." :-)

@Alrik: I found Sacred 2 to be a step back from Sacred 1 in terms of being an RPG. HiddenX's point is spot on, though — Sacred 1 at the time would have been considered differently. Today I would…
