I do have a question for those of you that have already played the International Version: Does the expert sphere grid have the same nodes as the regular sphere grid but in a different order, or does it make it harder overall to develop the characters to ridiculous lengths?

Like Starmongoose said, as far as I can remember it just gives you more options, you can still develop them the way they were originally intended.

The main difference with the International Version is the stupid near-impossible Dark Aeons blocking off areas you might want to go back to near the end of the game.

Computer RPG.

Gothic 3 was made by different guys, basically.

That was Gothic 4 (which is just called Arcania now since the rights to the series reverted to PB), Gothic 3 was still made by Piranha Bytes. I enjoyed G3 when it was fully patched, but it was still nowhere near G2. They bit off more than they could chew by making the game world too big - the quests suffered as a result and the combat wasn't up to much either.

After playing the demo of Arcania I think it's best to pretend that Gothic 4 never existed. Risen is pretty much another Gothic game with some names swapped round anyway, though Risen 2 was let down by having combat as bad as G3.

"I'll back in 60 hours"
Silly British English.  That missing "be" is almost as bad as saying hospital or future without "the" in front of them. :P

I'm English, and I've never heard anyone speak that way before. Those look like mistakes in the script rather than anything to do with the way we normally speak our language.

I finished Assassin's Creed III, and I've given IV a quick try now and the shaky camera is already making me feel sick. Unlike any of the previous games, it wobbles about when you're running, which is completely unnecessary and makes it feel like you're playing a drunk. It wouldn't be so bad if this was a game where you only sprint in short bursts, but it's not, it's a series where you spend half of your time running at full speed. It's usually only first-person games that give me motion sickness, I really hope I can get used to it and it doesn't become completely unbearable like Half-Life 2.

I've been playing Assassin's Creed III. Outside the missions where it's required, stealth seems damn near impossible compared to the previous games. I've been trying to take the forts without being seen, but going anywhere that isn't a hiding spot exposes you instantly to about 5 guards at a time, and there are hardly any high places where they can't see you. It's far easier to just not bother and slaughter the 20-odd mooks that come after you.

The last boss is called the great darkness through the whole game. JUST before the last dungeon (point of no return) there's a merchant who sells you darkness resist accessories and damage+ to darkness weapon upgrade. I am by far the most retarded gamer to have played AtL:TotS because I didn't buy a single one thinking they were useless. Then I get to the last boss and I'm like "Why is he hitting me like a truck and I'm doing so low damage?"

I never defeated the final boss, probably for the same reason. I can't remember exactly but I think I may have screwed up and spent all my money on other things just before the point of no return, leaving myself with no useful saves to go back to.

I'm liiking FFIII a lot more now that I found that the version I have (PSP) has an auto-battle feature - it repeats your last action and can be turned on and off at any time, and it speeds up all the animations. My main complaint is gone, and it's about as quick as SMT Nocturne or DDS now.

Bought the remake of FFIII, it's alright but it's a lot slower than it should do for a basic turn-based RPG. There's so many unnecessary short pauses that it ends up feeling pretty sluggish.

You start a battle - the camera pans around to show you the enemies. You select attack - the camera moves again, and there's another brief pause. And another pause before the enemy attacks. And yet another pause before the menu comes back up.

I started playing Rayman Legends, it's every bit as good as Origins, and that was fantastic in the first place. I won't spoil anything, but the last level of the first world was wondrous, it's not often a game brings a smile to my face like that.

Only at 30 FPS though, all the other versions run at 60 FPS.

I finished Growlanser WoT at last, it was very good but I think I'd have liked it more if was about 10 hours shorter. I like the idea of a tactical/traditional RPG hybrid, but in practice the non-story battles were a waste of time, since I enabled auto-battle for almost all of them.

Yoshi's STD Chase - Nintendo went a bit too far to try to shed their kid-friendly image.

Shady College Encounter - A dating sim.

Sleazy Driving in the Sky - Latest entry in the Sora no Kiseki series outsourced to Idea Factory.

Inbred Hoedown Quest - A rhythm/RPG hybrid.

That's been my experience with it too, and by the time I did finally fight off an invader I was so over-leveled that it didn't feel like much of a triumph. I really liked the other online components though, it just wouldn't be the same without the messages and when it worked, co-op (connectivity was terrible on the PC version, I was invaded more than enough but co-op was mostly a lot of "summoning failed").

I read about this a few hours ago.  This is going to be the most successful Kickstarter to date.

At least for games (there are other projects that raised more) there's a long way for it to go to reach Torment's total of over $4m.


Shantae will make it, there's still two weeks left and it's only $45,000 short of the total needed. It might even make the first stretch goal.
