Re: 2x2 strafing undermines character building [edited]

Re: 2x2 strafing undermines character building [edited]

I think the effectiveness of the strafing tactic undermines the whole RPG / character building aspect of the game. Crabs, ogres.. they all go down without ever even getting to attack you. Defensive abilities and stats become meaningless. I think there's a lot of room for improvement here. Suggestio...

Re: First time I seen[possible spoiler] I nearly sh@t my pan

the first spider kinda got me. aside from that, there were moments where i was like "that was a good one LoG..." like the intro to level 6. then i got to level 10 and ran into my first enemy that knew how to open a gate. and then there was the puzzle i solved where 3 of the grey-blue wizard dudes sp...

Re: Wonderful. Your test was successful, now for the Big Da
