I still consider AoW 1 to be the best game in this sub-genre. I loved the character development, which offers more choices than the other games listed above (though sadly it was quite easy to create…

But what exactly does "high potency bilberry extract" mean? In pretty much every case I've seen when someone has talked about "high potency" when it comes to natural products, it either means that…

That's blatantly untrue. Weight gain/loss follows a very simple pattern:
If energy in > energy out you'll gain weight
If energy in < energy out you'll lose weight

Some people put on weight…

I'm sorry to say it, but as a chemist, I don't buy into a lot of the stuff you're eating. What exactly does "High potency bilberry extract" even mean? It sets of almost every warning flag there is…

Here it's often the other way around, roleplayers pick up wargames. Most wargamers I know come from a pen & paper RPG background.

And pen & paper RPGs were never that big here either. For me it…

For me they came at roughly the same time, though it depends a bit on how you would define "CRPG". My first western RPG was Shadowrun for the SNES, which also was the game that sold me on the genre….

I think we have a very different look on these shooters then. For me, the progression system is a take it or leave it kind of thing. It's not why I play those games. The closest thing I've seen to a…

The way I define a computer roleplaying game (as opposed to a pen & paper one) is simple:
Does it have character development and is it a core part of the game? If so, then yes, it's a CRPG. It has…

Hard to know if there are keys that go to more than one door or chest during your first playthrough though.

I would personally not have had the willpower to finish the game without it. That keyring prevents so much frustration. It's not as important for Serpent Isle, as that one already has a keyring.

It sounds like you are doing things right. Double click on the key and the cursor should change. Now click on the chest. Are you sure that you are using the right key? You might have picked up…

In either case, i would not really say that it…

I second this. The original DOOM is pretty easy to play and it is quite fun.



It's not any different from when I was 11.

The best part about the Drakensang series is, in my opinion, the character development. Anyone who gets a kick out of a deep & flexible character customization system should give these a shot.

That has sadly been my experience with all games from Larian. I think it would be better if they made their games a bit shorter, and instead added a bit more diverse content.

If you like Patrician, then you'll like Port Royale, they are very similar, just in different settings. People who are into trading games seem to like Patrician & Port Royale quite a bit.
