SS2 gets easier when you get the laser rifle. I also recommend that ADAOB mod since the RPG mechanics are kind of unbalanced in the base game. also it's a lot harder if you're psionics, because psionics are sort of useless.

I never got into BG2. It's hard and it's hard to keep track of and you sort of have to be a bit familiar with AD&D rules to get the most out of it. I liked Planescape Torment a lot more once it got going, and I feel like Temple of Elemental Evil just has better combat mechanics than BG2.

I don't think NWN was very good.

I think my main problem in SS2 is I chose OSA. I know you are not locked in a class but I kind of used my first upgrades on their skills. Not that I even have any guns yet.

Playing BG1 so no idea on the quality of 2.

I haven't got that far in NWN but it seems decent so far. Only just left the academy though.

Got a bit further in Deus Ex. Having a great time so far. Neverwinter Nights is fun but not really feeling it at the moment. Probably going to come back to it later.

Tried out two other games I got in the sale. I know how everyone says Baldur's Gate is great but I don't really see it yet. I am only in the beginning so hopefully it picks up soon.

System Shock 2 is awesome but hard as fuck. I don't know if modern FPS games have spoiled me or I just suck but I seem to be constantly dying. Atmosphere is great and the game is constantly ca\using me to panic.

I am baffled by the apparent requirement to use a Facebook account for a lot of PS4 features (streaming and social stuff).  As somebody who won't touch Facebook with a 10 foot pole that just guarantees that I will never use those features...

OK, so I probably wasn't ever going to use them anyway, but now I'm definitely not going to use them.

Can't you just create a fake account? I don't use facebook either but have created one if anything ever requires it.

Recently rewatched this movie. Loved it and here are two pieces that really stood out.

The girl who leapt through time - Garnet

Apparently they love our Orchids

Also really liked the Metric one.

Nintendo love us more.

Looks like the first sign of the apocalypse is upon us :D

Just caught up today. Great podcast as usual. Haven't played much of the games listed but the music was fantastic. Weird listening to game music without knowing the context it was in.


Cmon guys ! Where is Quietus?! Or for that matter any other song from 999, that game has a super creepy atmospheric soundtrack(though only a masterpiece if you played the game)

I can't really remember much of the soundtrack from 999. I absolutely love Morphogenic Sorrow but none of the rest really stuck with me. I think Quietus is ok but feel it doesn't stand as strong listening to it outside of the game. Same thing seems to happens with a lot of my favourite game music :(

Edit: Just reread the second half of my post and it seems kind of douchy. Didn't mean for it to have that kind of tone to it :(

I never really think of my own mortality. I suppose I would prefer to go in my sleep or in a blaze of glory acting as a hero, giving my death some meaning. I know most people would probably like to be surrounded by loved ones but I don't think I would like them seeing me in my deathbed. I know for sure that I would prefer to still be in my right state of mind and in full control of my bladder. Sounds like I am making light of it but I honestly hate the idea of being unable to control when I go or having to be assisted to the bathroom. Not that there is anything wrong if you do need assistance, if you need help, you need help.

My dad is 60 next year and while it isn't that old in the modern day I do slightly worry. While I simply never consider myself dying, it is more mentally changing the subject whenever I think of his mortality.

I ended up buying a lot of games at GOGs insomnia sale. Playing Deus Ex for the first time. Graphics are actually pretty decent and the game is really fun. Just finished the first mission using stealth.

Also started playing Neverwinter nights. Fun game so far although I have only beaten the prologue bit.

Finished the demo. It was really fun and a lot more challenging than I expected. I didn't wipe but the boss fights were not just simply spam attack. The visuals are also nice. The music that was shown was great and I  like the town building aspect too.

My only complaint is that a lot of the costumes don't seem to fit the character. Knight looks awesome on all four and Swordmaster suits most of them but others just seem really off. I thought white mage looked terrible on everyone and Black Mage seemed off on the females. The White Mage and Black Mage female costumes try to go for a sexy look that kind of falls flat with the cute designs of the characters I like the Final Fantasy series red mage design but the look here just felt off. It would be a better fit for a Dancer class.

EDIT: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I was looking through the menu system and just discovered you can change the encounter rate. Increase it to high levels if you want to grind or turn random encounters off completely if you want to reach a boss at full HP or reaturn to battle.  This is probably all old hat to all of you but it really surprised me. I did not know anything about this game before laying the demo.

Continually restarting to get the right IVs/nature for a legendary is a pain.

Pokemon with the Synchronizer ability solve the nature problem

I enjoyed Dice's post so much I'm going to start up FF13 right now and play it.
