    I know, I did not believe people like this existed few years ago, but I think they are the norm now. Back in the day you would keep something like this to yourself or try and phrase it a different way. Now people just flat come out with that it is hard to read, how can you not be embarrassed to admit that?

    My brother and I were not abnormal to figure out and play Ad&d and even war games like third Reich when we were 10-12 years old, but nowadays such a person would be highly unusual, especially the wargame stuff. But back when I was growing up, it was very common place. nowadays I don't think mot adults could do it even, the internet has made us all pretty stupid I think, or more like impatient or something.

    You're way off base here my friend... :P. I've sunk a lot into KS games and if D:OS, The Tesla Effect (heard it's good but haven't tried it... yet) and Quest for Infamy are an indication of the end results ... well, TAKE MY MONEY!!!

    Indeed, we need more Codexers to donate at $500+ tiers so they can continue giving me their extra codes.

    Matt exposed for the gaming fraud he really is.
    Go back to doing interviews, Matt. At least you can't really lose when doing those.

    Manned the fuck up and made a new party/ Now that I understand the game better it's not so bad. Also, I just discovered you can do something at the 4 towers. :P missed that the first time around

    Someone tell Matt he should only fight enemies his own level.

    Also I thought there weren't any trash battles. :M

    So you're angry because a positive review isn't positive enough? Reminds me of the reception to my System Shock 2 impressions. :lol:

    Also his criticisms are fair. Larian completely failed when it came to sign-posting (other than showing you the level of any given enemy) and the crafting/inventory interface is terribad.

    And then I realized I just defended a Rowan Kaiser article look what you made me do.

    I would ask but I've forgotten what all the donor icons mean/what games they go to. Sadly, you don't appear to have KS'ed vaporware Deadstate.

    Divinity on normal is not that hard, at all. You have to be pretty shitty to take a full point off for being such a wuss you can't stomach setting your game to easy.

    Normal is total face roll once you get up and running. It can be a bit hard in the first hour or so (but then again most of that time is spent in the first town talking and solving quests) if you don't go and recruit Jahan/Madora but that doesn't last for long. If he put in at least ten hours I can't see how he could conclude normal to be too hard.

    No it has not. When I was growing up no kid would just come out and say with no shame that he did not like to play a game because it was hard to read and pay attention. All the anti-bullying BS probably has kids thinking being a dumb tard is just another type of unique awesomeness, its not BAD, its just different!

    Maybe he sucks at building characters, positioning in battle, etc it's not hard to figure out why people might have difficulties. I doubt he abuses OP shit like bully or leech or is even aware of those being that good

    ." Not everybody wants every battle hinging on a single dice roll!"

    What an idiot. No battle hinges on a single dice roll. Not one. The game sin't hard. I wouldn't call it 'easy' either' but it's nowhere near the most challenging game. Maybe top 100 if lucky.

    I didn't pick leech on any of my characters and only had bully on my ranger because it was part of the default class build. Started totally blind with a cleric and ranger. Was struggling with some of the undead outside (I believe I killed the lighthouse 'boss' with just my two mains and Jahan) when I thought Jahan/Madora was an either/or proposition. When I realized I could have both it was smooth sailing.

    So, yes, initially I can see someone having issues. But if you've played enough to make a review/rate it then it's moronic to knock it down a star or level or whatever for being too difficult on normal... because it simply isn't.

    I have not unlocked the room with a beds and mirrors, where is that? is it at the end of time? I only unlocked hall of heroes and then saved and have not played since, is it in hall of heroes or is it a different and separate area?
