Re: What Game(s) Are You Playing Right Now?

So I just finished Divinity: Original Sin (Enhanced Edition). It's an excellent game, similar to Bard's Tale 4 except much more polished, amazingly optimized, it's from an overhead view (and your can rotate the camera angle), and even though combat is turn-based, it's not grid-based, so you have a l...

Re: What Game(s) Are You Playing Right Now?

I got beneath the city, and such - and then there's the demon you spot (I engaged it, just to see how that would go - and you can guess it went poorly). The other combat was OK (brigands, and what not) - but I didn't like that the enemy can move forward/backward, but you could only move side/side. ...

Re: What Game(s) Are You Playing Right Now?

I just finished Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep. It's similar to Might & Magic X, but with puzzles like in Grimrock and free movement outside of combat. Combat is turn based on a 4x4 grid (you on the bottom, enemies on the top), and it's fun and strategic. I'd say there are more puzzles than in Grimroc...

Re: Bards Tale & Wizardry reboot?

I just started The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep. I'm maybe 4 hours in. Still deciding if I like it, I'm guessing I will once I get the hang of it. It's free movement combined with turn based combat. Some puzzles. The game is badly optimized. It takes a whopping 52 GB of hard drive space (almost). Th...

Re: Favorite Race/Class Combo?

I like the following: Minotaur Barbarian for the strength. Normally I go with aggressive head hunters that either use throwing weapons from the back row or dual wield light (strength) weapons in the front row. 2-handed weapons are easier to play though (less clicking, better specials, shields), but ...

Re: The Mountain

I think I finished - I received a message saying congratulations - I've finished the first half of The Mountain and then the screen goes black although I can still move around. There was no real final foe, although the insects at the end in the lost forest were tough. There is also an area at the ve...

Re: The Mountain

I found the Archer armor set in the Archer's Woods. Also, I realized I did have the Wizard pants (I had just put them on the wrong guy initially assuming they were light armor - mirror leggings). Also, the fights have picked up. I just gained entry into The Mountain... Not sure how much is left, but...

Re: The Mountain

Thank you Dr.Disaster, I was now able to solve 1-3 now. For one, I had to move the philosopher stone below the nearby pit to block it, so that I could stand on that square (pit) and push a secret button. For two, the secret button was right there, it was just hard to see me because of the frozen/whi...

Re: The Mountain

Thank you for the mod. I'm pretty far into it. Currently at the Maze Core trying to solve the puzzle with the teleporters. So far I've enjoyed the mod. I found some of the puzzles very hard, but the battles not too bad (playing on hard). However, there were a few areas I saw, but could not access. P...

Re: FINISTERRAE version 2.3

Hi MostlyHarmless, Welcome in Finisterrrae! If you haven't yet a mortar, I guess you have leaved Wreck Cape too fast :mrgreen: You have several mortars (4 I think) but the first one is where you begin the game... but Under the Cape. You can find elemental daggers in different places. Have you the m...
