I could definitely imagine that being the case. I used the Rusty Axe for a long time; progressed from that to a chainsaber, then to a broadsword. The first change alone felt amazing. I upgraded that…

Well…I completed Elex last night!

90 hours, level 44. I elected to side with the Beserker faction and went for an all round melee/ranged/magic play-style for the closest Gothic-like experience. I…

Summer holidays so far have yielded some fun entertainment!

Yep, same with me Charna. I thought it tied in with the plague quests. I was a bit miffed to discover that it was a little inconsequential to do the entire thing! Still, I quite liked the build up in…

This argument has been around forever and so while I give the author some credit for its creation and articulation, it isn't by any means an original or new position to take.

I think it's pretty…

I can remember getting tangled up in all of the cables required to setup our family Pong machine in around '82 or '83. My memories are a bit vague on this machine but I can still recall the garish…

That's interesting, as it's often a possibility in games as non-linear as Avernum. Fortunately I only hit level 30 this time around as I was getting to Blackcrag Fortress.
I actually had to do some…

Avernum 3: Ruined World Impressions

G'day Watchers

I thought I'd compile some quick thoughts after completing my first RPG last night in some time actually, Avernum 3: Ruined World. Strangely enough, it took exactly the same amount…

Whilst I disagree on the topic of Dark Souls 3 having the best combat from the series, I do agree with it having a lack of fundamental mystery about it. It might be the most polished combat system…

I was mildly disappointed with my first Pillars 2 playthrough on veteran (writing and main plot felt weaker, less interesting companions overall and combat was much too easy) but now that all of the…

Good effort at telling an overall narrative, if perhaps a little simplified. The post might have been better suited in 'Spud's old Piranha Bytes Poll. By all means go there and vote if you haven't…

See, that's not actually true. You can actually roleplay Geralt in a purely celibate fashion and be as neutral as possible philosphically throughout the first game. It's definitely not simply just…

Nice, thanks for the report mate. I might pick it up myself as I'm definitely an R-type fan and a fan of older sh'mups in general. I've still got the original on C64. I also like to listen to various…

You could always try some older dungeon crawlers to break it up a little. One of the more accessible and probably most story oriented that I can think of is Lands of Lore. It's party based, there's…
