    Man, same here. I was going to skip it as shovelware until I saw this thread praise it. Definitely one of the better games that came out this year.

    This, fucking this. Also the same applies to retarded camera scrolling to show critical hit or whatever it was that wasteland 3 has. Don't take camera control away from me in tactical combat unless I allow it!

    Obviously it's not wildly successful but it seems this is the most successful game for both the developer and the publisher.

    It must be word of mouth - people seem to be happily surprised that the combat is actually decent and, considering that it's a French game, not a technical mess.

    Another indie dev managed to not be hit by the Unity loading times of death while companies with hundreds of employees can't do it :M
    Takes me like 3-4 seconds to load a level

    [edit]
    also, appears they plan on releasing a PS4 version after checking the files. Was that already confirmed?

    I think I found out how to make the Ogre semi-useful: keep him behind the main line and delay his turn, then aggro everyone. Next turn put him in defense mode. Enemies will give you attacks of opportunity and deal less damage overall (assuming they can even reach the Ogre). Next passive I get for him will be the one that increases protection, so he can soak damage even without being in defense mode (useful against enemies with high initative/Courage).

    Also, I gave the Dwarf Lead Belt and with all other items he has 12 protection and 18 parry (28 with the Ranger's bonus from Tactic: Defensive Maneuver). He was able to effortlessly tank 4-5 Orcs in the last battle by parrying and soaking damage. All that without defense mode enabled.

    In dungeon of naheulbeuk original story the elf gained bigger titties after getting a level up and morecharisma , the barbarian noticing it screamed " CROM!" , it"s very old and AD&D parody . What was normal humor by then is probably viewed as unacceptable by medias , and only by them, but who cares aboutt hem anymore.

    I think that's a compromise they did when adapting the source material: the elf was already annoying in the mp3 sagas, so if they don't want to lose those that bought the game because of the license, they'd have to keep her that way. And since not everyone would be fan of the elf, they just added a option to mute her.

    After playing the demo for 10 minutes back in july, i really wanted to hate the game but you make it look like the combat is more than decent so i'll probably buy it if/when all the bugs are squashed.

    I'll probably hate the humor with passion (Early Naheulbeuk audio series was good but it soon got extremely retarded) though.

    Yeah, I like the humor too. It's not the side-splitting kind of humor, but one where you just smile at the ridiculous lines and conflicts. I keep feeling as though this kind of humor used to be really common back in the day, but you rarely see it nowadays. Probably because every retard out there subverts stereotypes nowadays, so when you actually see a normal stereotype, it feels new.

    BTW, misc does not mean trash. I've had misc items that are used in puzzles.

    Anyone know what the riddle item is for the door on Abandoned Floor? It thought it'd be an egg, but that was incorrect.

    it went something like "it's hard to tell if it's a he or a she, but it often dies before you find out or hear its song, and if it lives then it outlived its name" or something along those lines.

    Probably. The jokes are painfully obvious, so you can see the punchline from a mile away and I am suspecting something was lost in the translation too, because delivery feels flat. If you played the demo and didn't like it, then I have to warn you: it doesn't get any better later on in terms of quality of humor.

    I found this format...:

    ...to be kinda funny though.

    Somebody said the items that will come in handy have a description "You never know when it might be useful" or something like that.

    :hmmm:

    The answer is chicken. Not going to mark it with spoiler tags because a french person will have to explain it to us, I assume the riddle was lost in translation.

    That's why I thought it was gonna be the egg... but in the end they want an already hatched chicken? So the hen bomb, probably?

    From googling it french people are confused too and expected an egg to be the answer. It might kind of make sense because only adult roosters sing?
