    in 3.5 and earlier editions wizard spells were memorized directly into spell slots. So you could technically memorize as many spells as you had slots, but most wizards would memorize multiples of their favorite spells.

    Yup, so far the only real bug (not counting stupid shit like Beard clipping) is that sometimes my dudes would climb on Air instead of on a block or ledge, but the end result was the same so whatever

    AHA! You could not make a fool of me this time, game. I had a splendid armor in my inventory. After the fiasco with the magnificent item that I sold, I got very suspicious. I've got my eyes on you game, I've got my eyes on you...

    Time for some identification. Ah. as I suspected, it is a half plate +1, which fits perfectly on my muscular dwarf. Game, today I was not a fool. Today was a good day.

    Sorry (or not?) for being cheesy. Game puts me in a good mood.

    "Solasta: Crown of the Magister is as solid as any cRPG can get, possibly even more than most, but it's definitely not a game for everyone."

    How can one of the simplest RPG systems ever made feel overwhelming? D&D 5th edition is barely more complex than fucking Dungeon Siege 3.

    I'll try to not compare it to the ideal of a 5e game in my mind this time but take it for what it is...

    Magical items in need of identification are labelled as "magnificent" or with some other similar adjective

    I had a magnificent armor and weapon, or if it was both. These items show no bonuses in their numbers. Take the armor for example. It was a magnificent leather armor. I quickly skimmed the numbers, and it looked like a regular armor. When I sold it, I saw that I had gotten way more money than I should. So, I had another magnificent leather armor... This is getting awkward, I told myself. I should have identified that, oops!

    In other words magnificent and splendid items should be identified by your mage, because they are so far +1 items. In shorter words, they are unidentified items. I was thrown off, because when you get potions, it says unidentified potion.

    People are mostly playing phones games giving them instant gratification now, so of course 5E is overwhelming for such people. The average guy is completely retarded .
    To someone who likes rpg, that's worth 9/10 , pretty sure it will be 7/10 all over the board cause of far too small marketing budget, they arent giving bribes. BG3 will be 9-10 all over , be sure of it.

    Possibly. I had a couple of unique shields. Is it the one shaped like a cog or the one with light spells?

    So it's not Heroic Fantasy anymore, it's just Fantasy? Or science fiction?

    You need to calm down. She's in the game for literally 30s, as she delivers exposition. I doubt you'll remember her name 30s after she's gone.

    The reviewer betrays himself as never having played or read the rules of 5E from the title. Impressive speed. It usually takes a few sentences in the review itself.

    Speaking of mods, I decided to look if there were any and it seems there is already a number of user created modules for the game. Pretty sweet.

    Show Spoiler
    I wished there was a mod to improve the faces. The graphics themselves are good, but I don't know why the faces are so ugly. Not a deal breaker really, in the great scale of things it really doesn't matter, but it would still be nice.

    The guy from GameBeat basically gave it a max score, but didn't have the balls to put it in the last diamond for fear of looking like a fanboy. Cute.

    No one seems to mention the home brewed classes or changes to darkvision. No one seems to talk about the lighting either.

    I haven't taken reviewers seriously in years. Both Solasta and Biomutant reviews solidify my stance.
