Default Severance: Blade of Darkness Revisited

Just an FYI - I decided to reexperience the classic since even today no combat system comes even remotely close .

That and I never finished it!

Anyway - the game for me (and others) is incredibly unstable with DirectX these days, so if you decide to revisit the classic try the OpenGL patch:

The game has only crashed once on me since I applied it and I played for ~4 hours last night. One thing that is pretty funny - it used to take for ever to save and load this game but now it simply flies. That and the graphics, shadows and lighting are still incredibly effective today. The character models and animations are fantastic! At 1280x1024 its beautiful - although the journal is so small its completely unreadable but who needs it? Ahhh… the beheadings are still a blast!

"For Innos!"
