    Fighting waste golems would probably be the number one reason I wouldn't choose the life of an adventurer.

    Btw, the loot from that fight was kinda crap too.
    Edit: Now that i remember, there was a few gold nuggets. I already tend to receive something at this level in every other fight so the loot was indeed crap.

    You know that back in the day ragdoll physics was considered an expensive novelty, and predefined death anims were the usual way, right?

    Of course. It's clipping because it happened to land there, I just find it funny that its head is perfectly gone as if I had hacked it away.

    Paper Sorcerer

    I had a great time with this game, although at first I wasn't expecting it to be so addictive. Starting from a zero point with a sorcerer character, choosing thralls to help me in my quest... This is were things are getting interesting and we can experiment during our dungeon adventures. I've summoned Werewolf, Shadow and Vampire for my first group and later on added Skeleton, Minotaur and Abomination.

    After a while the core team that I was sticking for the most of the adventure was Vampire, Skeleton, Minotaur. The Vampire is a very versatile character, that can fight well and has some good healing, resurrecting and supporting spells. He is also an excellent fighter. Skeleton was the one who took most of the beating thanks to his challenge skill and high defence stats to be a bait. He is also a good warrior, if we find a good sword for him and can use heavy armor. Abomination's role is rather similar, so I decided to use him in another playthrough. Minotaur is a total beast, excellent fighter with powerful AOE skills and I had a lot of luck finding some powerful axes during my journey.

    The sorcerer can specialise later on, either being Arch magus or Knight magus. I've tried the first option and it was really fun, to have all that spells available and experiment on filthy elven mages, samurais fighters and bosses. Knight magus is a sort of a hybrid between fighter and cast speller, I need to try him out as well to see how it plays at the endgame parts. Which can be really tough, with high level mixed groups nuking you in a two rounds without no problem. Plus two surprise groups of resurrected bosses (especially the second team, fuuuu...)

    There are some problems, like for example you can't use 'esc' button to exit submenus instantly without clicking on "back" every time. Considering it is a dungeon crawler concentrated mainly on fighting groups of enemies it would be a time saver. Also, a minimap would be helpful, especially in the later segments. Some spelling errors here and there, plus occasionally the graphics would glitch when I have returned to town. Once the menu in town wasn't visible and I had to use alt+F4 to load my savegame.

    Also the randomness of loot is a curse and a blessing at the same time. You can find great powerful weapons and armors, but luck is not always on your side. Usually I just reloaded a couple of times if I found a chest after some harder fight or found a secret room(s). My advice is to seek the secrets as much as possible, most of the best gear that I've used was kept there. Most of the puzzles are really simple and they shouldn't be too difficult. I've never bought any weapon or armor/ring/rune from the shop and was using it to sell my old junk and treasures to have more money for training skills (we can find some scrolls which improve permanently the stats as well).

    But overall despite afromentioned problems this I really liked the whole game. Very nice art design, excellent soundtrack and looting/selling/finding secrets never feels boring and PS is one of those 'compact' titles that aren't big, and it is a good thing. You know what to expect, but with different new summons you can try and test new things and see how it goes.

    The first two games i completed on normal. The third game i am playing on hard.
    AoF1 felt fair to me, especially considering the fact that i noticed very late all of the free hidden undead units in the necromacer campaign you can get. Was a bit boring the fact that i didn't have enough xp for all of the high tier abilities in both human and undead campaigns.
    AoF2 felt a lot easier thanks to the openworld allowing you a little bit of grinding and exploity stuff like the moon temple easily letting you get the army of elite units with all abilities unlocked. The minotaur hero you can get as a reward for completing an optional dungeon in the orcish campaign is broken as shit.
    AoF3 on hard feels fair to me. And even the moon temple now feels less exploity to me because of the fact that some of the fun units with lots of abilities(like the insectoid hunter) arrive very late.
    Just finished the forest folk campaign. Things got a lot easier once Balvar got a good equipment(the shard sword with multi-attack, the medalion with execution ability, the sun artefact that gives a fire attack). As long as i properly use potions like the invulnerablity one i feel like all the fights are managable.
    Dwarfs campaign also feels fair to me so far. I noticed that some of my choices are being influenced by my army composition. Like, i decided to help the ents against humans that one time because the pair of tesla cannons are way better counter against knights than the dire bears/ents combo. I am satisfied with the difficulty so far.

    I predict that things will get a bit easier in the future though, because damn[​IMG]
    Soul collector grown into one ridiculous sword, murdering that drider was totally worth it.

    I like how this game has armed extremist elements of basically every nutty group out there, including but not limited to bible thumpers against rock music, anti-GMO farmers, people upset about migrants taking their jobs and fanatics who hate genetic science. I'm waiting for flat earther extremists now, although unfortunately they weren't as memetic in 2006 when this was made, so they prob won't show up.

    All this because some psychotic bitch decided on her 16th birthday that my guy had too many hands.

    Joke's on her: murdered her, kidnapped her twin sister and then sacrificed her to Satan :smug:

    Nioh is actually a really fun game so far. More fun than Dark Souls 3, even. It's early days still, of course...
