Re: What game are you playing now?

I feel bad about posting back-to-back-to-back, but can't help it haha I decided to give Pathfinder: Kingmaker another chance, as I did some research and it turns out that it actually is possible to create a party once you get through the short tutorial. You can hire mercenaries at an inn after the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I installed a few games and gave each an hour or so, to decide what to play next: Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire / Pathfinder: Kingmaker I list these together because, even though they are quite different in mechanics, they are similar in style. I just can't get into these, and I think it comes …

Re: What game are you playing now?

AD&D Curse of the Azure Bonds (PC DOS) Finished! Overall, I enjoyed the game, but felt it was quite a step down from Pool of Radiance. I'll get the bad out of the way first. The structure of the game is actually pretty lame. It's "nonlinear" in that you can tackle the middle portion of the game in …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Curse of the Azure Bonds I went through and explored all the optional areas. Even though they were just mazes with "boss" encounters after X amount of random encounters, I didn't mind it due to how fun Gold Box combat is. Having said that, the optional dungeons (even the required areas, really) are …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Curse of the Azure Bonds I decided to do some "exploring" (you don't really explore this game, just select points on a map) instead of continuing on with the main quest. For all its faults compared with Pool of Radiance, it at least does provide you with some degree of freedom, including some …

Re: What game are you playing now?

AD&D: Curse of the Azure Bonds (PC) I decided I'd pick this one back up, as I'd already made a lot of progress in it. I'd previously got two out of five of the titular bonds removed from my characters and was a good ways through the area for the third bond. After a few minutes of getting back into …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Hello clueless1, and thank you very much! The ending still blew my mind even today, and even though I already knew the twist from reading interviews with Garriott, etc. (the wine I have been drinking may have played a small part in that haha). I've played all the games on my list and have made some …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima III: Exodus (PC) Finished! I used the fanmade upgrade patch to play through the game*. I ran into no problems at all, and really enjoyed the "composite CGA" tileset, which I found less garish than than the EGA tileset. The patch also adds MIDI music, and it sounded great playing through my …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I think this is more a problem specific to the Ultima series, which has always placed more importance on exploring a nonlinear world and gathering information to solve a multi-step quest than on compelling combat. I guess this is why the combat strikes me as so annoying in Ultima III and IV—the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima III: Exodus (PC) I ended up finishing work really early today, so decided to put another couple hours into this game. I ended up exploring all of the Dardin's Pit dungeon, and ended up seemingly maxing the level of two of my characters. I still have only explored half of the other six …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima III: Exodus (PC) Another day, another dungeon. I mapped out the firs three floors of Doom and finally earned enough gold to max out my Cleric's wisdom stat. I traveled to Ambrosia, spent the 7400 gold, and now I'll be able to explore deeper levels of the dungeons thanks to getting access to …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Yeah, I can't see this one taking too much longer to finish. It seems massive at first, but the land of Sosaria is actually quite small and, once you get going, exploring the dungeons is pretty quick. The game starts out pretty brutal, but once you make a bit of progress your overall power begins to …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima III: Exodus (PC) Getting pretty addicted to this! I was afraid that getting the Mark of Kings (which allows you to advance beyond a certain level) would cause some havoc with the level-scaling enemies, but that hasn't been the case at all. Land-roaming enemies seemed to top off in difficulty …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima III: Exodus (PC) As mentioned earlier in this thread, I had put my playthrough of the NES version of the game on hold—while it's a good port with charming graphics and a great, moody soundtrack, I just found it annoyingly slow to play. Ultima III is a pretty repetitive game to play, …

Re: Soundblaster and RolandMT sound problem

in DOS
I know what you mean, I do the same thing with my DOS PC; if I can't get a game working I'll spend an hour troubleshooting it, looking up stuff, etc., really obsessing over it until I can get it working. Also, as you've found over the past few days, once you solve a problem with one game it tends to …

Re: Soundblaster and RolandMT sound problem

in DOS
I think you should focus on one thing at a time. If every game works but one or two, instead of installing weird drivers, you should instead focus on what is possibly wrong with the game that doesn't work. You should forget completely about Roland and general MIDI, these options are not meant for …
