I would say it's on a par with Dark Souls difficulty wise; perhaps slightly easier if you play a Sorcerer. I beat it on PS3 a few years ago. Given I played it with a controller rather than keyboard…

Nice! I've still got my C64 original box set of this trilogy. Played it a fair bit in my mid teens. Epyx made great games. From memory I nearly completed Gateway, but not the others. Good to see it…

I guess one of the interesting points with this release is that it represents 5E essentially from the ground up; whereas BG3 was made via heavily modifying a pre-existing game engine (DOS-2) and…

I actually left a link to the official forums on this subject in the other thread if you didn't already see it. There's at least two major threads at the moment in the general forum there.

I completely disagree. I thought their presentation was tasteful and most often a celebration of nature.. :) That said, you could role-play Geralt as entirely celibate anyway so it becomes a…

This idea is certainly a great clarion call to the heavyweights from the original two games and indeed any surviving team members responsible for New Vegas.

Primarily to save money on development I suppose. Laziness, ease of transition from using the DOS:2 engine.

Just to clarify where I read this - it was in the Romance & Companionship edition of…

The mechanics definitely interest me, given it's a D&D game, but the art style and overall presentation feels flat and slightly generic as if somehow I've seen it all many times before, DOS games…

I got my email from Fangamer for my collectors edition as well but alas, my desire to even try and play this now is extraordinarily minimal. The whole affair has been hugely depressing for me and…

Menzoberranzan has already been the focus of a D&D game. Waterdeep has also received a good deal of treatment in D&D games overall.

I'm pretty partial to seeing Zhentil Keep get some modern love….

79/100. Fun! I also had the same problem as Philistine with many not loading the image and so had to guess. A couple of tricky questions here or there but most are fairly mainstream.

This is a useful open minded angle of approach, I think. I've struggled to connect what we've seen with anything really resembling BG thus far, so concentrating on the D&D and mechanics aspect is a…

Well, it's no coincidence that Richard famously referred to role-playing as being "fundamentally social experiences". This philosphy appears in its most obvious form in the creation of Ultima Online….

I've said it few times before here at the 'Watch and I still believe it: For me games don't really age as they are simply products of the time in which they're made. It's people who age and change….

Dwarfs forever! Hopefully they're not neglected too much in the face of the more unusual options available for the game.

Still awhile yet though before it's time for a bit of rough and tumble.

I think my party was around 10-12 for the Sepulcher. That's one of the best dungeons in the game for me so far but it is a bit tricky to navigate at first. A couple of the key doors are awkward to…

Great post Pongo; big goldbox fan here as well of course, so it's always nice to read of others still playing and enjoying them. That first huge Sokol Keep fight always stays in my memory as a…
