Realms of Arkania: Shadows over Riva After completing a major part of the plot yesterday, my score is now about 700/1000. The next part involves finding a sunken ship in Riva Harbour, looking for a magical item crucial to the plot quest that was lost when the ship went down. Here is an example of …

I just noticed something I'm suspicious about from another conversation on here and I'm curious If I can tell if you are anything younger than Gen. X by how you answer this question. No cheating. What do you call the sounds a modem makes when connecting to another modem? Cacophony. LOL. I'm not …

We all have different skill sets and most people I know don't like getting their noses rubbed into it unprovoked. We're all here because we enjoy old computers and gaming. Boasting and belittling don't win friends. Back to Realms of Arkania: Shadows over Riva I've made it into the fortress of Riva …

Especially on console games with multiple button combos. One of my favorite games is Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast (I still turn it on and give it a whirl once or twice a year!) and I never could keep track of which button combinations did each attack -- I just randomly smashed different buttons and …

I was reading through a 1994 December issue of Computer Games Review magazine, and they had a review for Star Trail (Realms of Arkania 2). I know that game got a lot of coverage here, but the review was what really tipped me.. I think I'll give the series a try. Anything I should be wary of before …

Not really playing this yet, but I just bought Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar for 99 cents on GOG's Winter Sale. I did install it and check it out and it looks like a full-on modern remake of Wizardry 7. I'm impressed and the reviews have been pretty good, so I look forward to playing this …

Realms of Arkania: Shadows over Riva Just a quick update. I'm 32 hours in and have 314/1000 points. Despite the point total, I figure I'm closer to 50% through the game. I've just entered the Magician's Tower, which according to the couple of walkthroughs I'm referencing, puts me at 40-50% through …

Starting playing Bioforge (1995) on my Win95 PC. Oh the joys of mid 90s pre-hardware-accelerated 3D. This is one of a handful of games remaining on my DOS playlist. I'm curious to read your thoughts on it as you get along with it. I will be (re)playing it myself someday. I did buy it when it was …

Realms of Arkania: Shadows over Riva I'm making some decent progress on this game. Averaging about 1.5 hours a day so far. You get points for progressing the plot in this game, and there's a dedicated screen with beautiful SVGA art to display your progress in Game Points. So far I'm at 250/1000, or …
