Wizardry VI - Beat the castle and am now in the mines. The castle was great fun and I really liked a lot of the
quests in it so far. My favourite has probably been outdrinking a pirate called Captain Matey.

I actually like that the rooms are described by text. I think if they had used graphics, the rooms would not have looked that nice but the text really makes you imagine what it looked like. Yay for the power of imagination.

I had a strategy that was going great against multiple enemy groups. My melee attacked the first group, my mage fireballed the second and my bard put the third to sleep. In the end the mage just destryed every enemy with his fireball. Love fireball <3. Now I am fighting Dwarves which appear to be magically resistant. Not cool, not cool at all.

Vic was kind enough to let me review a copy, and it's very enjoyable. Slow build, but once you get over the trademark initial hump, it's fun times, especially the combat's fluidity.

Some of these dungeons are brutal, too. My biggest complaint is the lack of dungeon music.

Is money as large an issue in this one? I remember in the first wandering around using starting equipment for a decent amount of time before I was able to afford/make anything.

Actually one thing I wouldn't mind knowing is if the race pictures fit their stats this time? I was more put off in the first one by the Erdgeist's monk like appearance not matching its magic like  stats than I should have been.

That said I did have a lot of fun playing the first game and will most likely buy the second at some point.

Not really a big fan of the new voice. Hopefully it is just a matter of getting used to it, and it will grow on me. It seems to lack the sarcastic dry wit of the previous games, although it was just a trailer though, so it is all presumptions on my part.

1. Square Enix reveal Kingdom Hearts 3. An IOS game that will be released in multiple episodes.

2. Rumours of Duke Nukem: Forever and Ever will begin

3. The Last Guardian will be confirmed.(Come on Portugal, don't let me down)

Are you using good old graph paper for mapping?

I'm surprised no one has made a simple app for this, the closest thing I've found is Ye Olde Map Maker, but is more designed for pen and paper dungeon master map design than a simple map maker.

I am using graph paper. I thought about using excel to make them but the graph paper is faster and does not interrupt the game as much. The maps are pretty messy but I can make sense of them and that is all that matters I suppose. I have been using them more to remind me where unusual things were or to help me spot blank spots that tend to be secret passages rather than where regular unexplored places are.

Is Soul Hackers much different than other SMT? I have read the site review and am planning to get it when it is released in Europe but I had simply assumed it was like strange journey without the minimalistic story.

Pulp-Like a Friend. Venture Bros and this song will be forever connected for me.

THIEF / PC, PS4 & XB1 (2014)

I am looking forward to hearing more about the game. I really liked one and two, and while Deadly Shadows was my least favourite it was still a good game. I was disappointed to hear Stephan Russel may have been replaced though. His voice for Garret was great and really fit the character.

Bard's are essential in W7 as far as I'm concerned. The thing with putting an enemy to sleep is that you basically have a 100% hit chance against them, their defense is reduced WHILE they're asleep, and they're not going to be attacking you in the mean time. Yes, there's magic that sleeps enemies too, but early on it's a lot less accurate and more expensive.

I don't think I used a bard in W6 so maybe less necessary there, but still I can imagine them being super useful. You DO tend to have a higher base hit rate in W6, though, which helps.

Also I THINK Ninjas and Bards have some thief skills? You can eventually get the bard's thief skills higher, anyway.

Yeah, I ended up ditching my Thief in favour of another melee character. The Bard's low Skulduggery meant most doors were unable to be opened but thankfully that improved once I leveled up and added some more points to it. The Bards Music and Ninjutsu are rising steadily without me adding anything to them.

After playing the game for a decent bit, I am coming to really like it. So far I have only visited 3 out of the 4 tower rooms in the starting area(fourth is locked from the inside by some dude) Combat got really fun once I leveled up and got more abilities to use. Going to try to explore the lower levels next.

You too can have your very own suikoden pachinko machine.

It was only meant as a joke. Didn't realise how bitter it sounded until I reread it. I would actually love if they brought that over. Even if it is not connected to the main series it looks really fun.

trying to rush this game so I can get ready for Rune Factory 4 and finish up Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny.


Really hyped about Rune Factory 4, but since I am European and the 3DS is region locked I am out of luck. No importing for me this time.


Playing Wizardry VI at the moment. The game is pretty brutal at the moment but I am really enjoying myself. It does look like I will have to draw a map though. I have been trying to understand the classes and races at the moment. The manual is helpful but it still leaves unanswered questions.
I also need to decide should I have a Bard or a Thief. The thief can unlock stuff better than the bard but the Bards sleep inducing musical instrument is kickass. Thought about having both but neither seem strong enough to be a frontline fighter. Only problem I had at all with the game at all was the low SP at character creation but downloading Cosmic Forge rose the probability of getting usable amounts. The combat itself is great fun.

Played Wiz 8 back in the day, only one I really ever played.

They are similar to Might and Magic series, but a bit more in depth and "hardcore". The storylines from 6 through 8 are more or less continuous, and you can carry your party through the whole way, but 6 and 7 are pretty archaic compared to today's standards. 6 doesn't even have an automap, and 7 does, but it's related to skill level.

Thanks for the advice. I have seen a lets play showing the beginning of the game and I don't think the age of the game will bother me. Guess I will have to resort to drawing my own maps though. Brings back memories of those fighting fantasy adventure books I got as a kid.

Just play Wizardry IV.


Anyway, if you get the wizardry games from GOG, don't play Wizardry Gold. It's busted and always has been. Original DOS W7 is available as an extra. Use that.

And if you get Wizardry 8, please try out my fast animation mod :(((

Had no idea about that. How bad is it? I don't mind playing the DOS version but I thought Gold had added in a lot of stuff.

I actually have very little knowledge when it comes to PC gaming. I have yet to play games such as Planetscape:Torment, Balders Gate, the Ultima series(4 is free on GOG so I will have to try that), Wizardry or Neverwinter Nights. One of the reasons I want to play Wizardry above the others is due to being in a dungeon crawler mood.

I will be sure to try the mod if I ever find myself actually getting past 6 and 7.
