    Huh. My memory must be going, then. It wasn't that long ago that I completed Grimrock.
    Guess those giant crabs were so uneventfully easy to deal with that I completely forgot them. :cool:

    They hit hard.:D

    An interesting mod here:
    Keep on the Borderlands 1.0.0 for ToEE
    I've not played it but i've always heard that is a very good D&D module...
    Just some shots of the beginiing. I admit that this is a bait hoping to lure someone in to try it and report if it's good...
    Started with pregen chars to see something quickly. Char gen is nearly identical to ToEE, there are some new skills and feats (not that i recognized them, i remember nothing from ToEE).

    [​IMG]
    Well, i've always tought that thief is the most useful class...

    [​IMG]
    Main gate...

    [​IMG]
    There are some empty buildings...

    [​IMG]
    Church!

    [​IMG]
    A closed place...

    [​IMG]
    A market.

    [​IMG]
    Ok, so i passed time then went to the pub...

    [​IMG]
    I managed to recruit 2 mercenaries...

    [​IMG]
    Then i laughed at the wrong person and they imprsoned me... There are also the 2 mercenaries. No avatar though (i haven't checked char screen now that i think...).
    Just some search and exit is found.

    Cute little roguelike, I'm having a great time with it. Especially since it costs less than a dollar on Steam.

    The interesting thing is that the screen keeps moving foward and kills you if you get off-screen, kind of like the old time levels from Mario. So every movement you make wastes time and the darkness gets closer...

    So after Durlag's Tower I just sort of lost the pace. When you've rolfstomped Aec'Letec's ass (that fight was pretty cool) the rest of the encounters feels like bad filler.
    [​IMG]
    The place looks great though. I've equipped Khalid with boots of speed and for some reason the idea of a stuttering half-elven maniac cutting up mages before they've even cast their first spell is funny to me.

    [​IMG]
    Woha, that guy was a greater doppelganger. It's not like I've fought over a dozen of them in Durlag's Tower or anything. *yawn*
    [​IMG]
    Insta-gibbed. Later I ran into the leaders of the Iron Throne.
    [​IMG]
    What a bunch of pushovers. Accidently hit my own guys with an aoe spell, Dynaheir got a shit spell selection but since my party consists of good guys I had little choice. What really grinds my gears is the poor pathfinding, it's absolutely lethal in the tighter areas of the game. Especially firewine ruins was a total hell for me.

    I think TosC would have benefited greatly if it was set after the main game so that balance in the main game is retained and you can ramp up the challenge without it detracting from the base game. ToB got that right so I guess they learned. Another thing that's unbalanced is its content ratio. At the start of the game you have a vast amount of screens to clear often finding one or two quest in each. Nashkel and Bergeost are just fine. Then you enter Baldur's Gate and everyone and his dog has a quest for you to do and often they approach you with it. Due to the poor journal in this game I found that very annoying since I had to keep track of several quests at once. With a better system this wouldn't be so much of an issue but often times the journal doesn't even tell you that you've finished a quest.

    Another annoyance is that neutral characters complain if you're good. Since Jaheira is paired with Khalid it's inevitable that one of them starts bitching, who thought this was a good idea? Anyway, now I'm going to clean up these dungeons under Candlekeep and get me some tomes. Cheerio.

    I was never that fond of uber-bosses in the BG games (with the exception of Dragons in BG2). They were typically so difficult that I was either completely BTFO before taking even half their health, or everything went perfectly and I annihilated them in about 20 seconds. I enjoyed plenty of boss-like encounters, but I also enjoyed fighting my way through the regular encounters because I tried to LARP the game by only resting and recuperating when absolutely necessary/logical. So if I'd just cleared a big dungeon, I'd be on my way back to a town with heavily wounded and fatigued party that was vulnerable to a simple bandit ambush taking advantage of their state. It's a nice opportunity to use "secondary" spells and such that aren't all that important when you just rest and rememorize all your best abilities for each encounter.

    Yeah, someone should mod in quest arrows :troll:. But yes, I know what you mean. With the split of the map into lots of connected small maps, orientation is a bit difficult the first time you play the game.

    I usually have her strip naked and wrestle a bear. Khalid's grief is short.

    Yes, it's the first Two Worlds. Unlike the sequel, this one has truly open world, like Gothics and TES. It's a decent game too, not as good as Gothic 1/2/NotR or Morrowind, but it's better than Gothic 3 or Oblivion. At least that's my impression after a few hours of gameplay. I'm still at the beginning of the game, but I decided to ignore the main quest, as I usually do in open world cRPGs, and be exploring the map until I get bored or I explore it all.

    It's certainly the most played one, since it was sold inside those 1980s beginners' D&D boxed sets that sold in the millions. Otherwise, it is the low level home base + wilderness + dungeon module, and because it has been so tremendously influential on RPGs, and imitated so many times, it can feel either like the missing link (''So this is where all that other stuff has come from!'') or completely generic (''Haven't I seen this a hundred times?'').

    This game begins as a mediocre action game and slowly grows into something... more. It makes me remember (unlike copy-pasted and level scalled oblibian/gothic 3) how enjoyable it was in open world cRPGs put aside quests and shit and just wander around with no purpose whatsoever but just find new places and fight enemies that are levels above to find challenge and feel satisfaction. Moreover, it's probably the only third-person cRPG with working horse combat (apart from M&B series, but these games aren't cRPGs anyway).

    Decided to play it stright away after Afterfall InSanity and got pleasantly surprised by both games. Seems like Poland can into games after all, Gorky 17 and Witchers weren't just exceptions.
