Heh. Did a double take there. Oculus support for Dwarf Fortress would have been Pythonoesque to the extreme....

its challenging but i dont know about "HARD!".. you have to think tactically, you cant just stand there in a crowd and expect to win.. ive only got 1 follower (the warrior chick) plus my main wizard and shadowblade.. and in fact i only hired her after level 7

in the early parts i kited the enemies around a lot, drew some back to town so guards can fight too..

but like i said you have to use tactical maneuvering, like retreating then attacking, move behind stuff to break their line of sight, etc.. you cant just stand around like a dumbass and duke it out with 2 vs 8 or whatever

but at this point my guys are just murdering dudes left and right.. with these 3 guys at lvl 10, i destroyed the entire goblin force on the way to the mine - even the parts where you are supposed to avoid them, i just moved in and killed them all.. and they were all lvl 12 guys... just move crates and other stuff to block them in, use exploding barrels and all that

but yeh, my wizard is a fucking beast.. i think thats pretty key actually

make sure everyone has high mobility.. as in fast movement rate as well as a bunch of AP

Yeah I get all the tactical and environmental stuff thats required. I 'majored' in Fallout2 and BG after all

I have to admit it didnt occur to me to kite the enemies back to the city gates although I did try pretty much every other trick there is including bugging them out at a chokepoint. At this point I dont believe it will make much difference. Im convinced that since I picked premade chars (Knight, and Wizard) I gimped myself with regards to skill choice, abilites etc.

Reroll time... *sigh*

Looks like Cutter got to the part where he actually needs to think about encounters. This, assuming he actually thought about his character builds. And since he didn't go lonewolf, this also assumes he has enlisted the two henchmen which makes encounters pretty easy.

Bit too much thinking for him, looks like he's screwed. We'll hear nothing but bitching from him from here on out... not that that's unusual.

Thats really unfair Axis. THe game is HARD. HARD as fuck. I hired the two mercs (are they Mercs? We are talking about Jahan and that crazy warrior mage lady right?), solved Jake's murder and proceded to the hideout. Im lvl 3. Cant get past the second undead army (I dont know what else to call it). Three undead archers, undead priest, and 6 undead swordsmen. I reloaded that encounter like 20 times. The fucking undead priest keeps bringing back the guys I strike down. If I go for him, the archers use fire and ice arrows to destroy my party. At this point Im about to reroll my chars so I can POWERGAME because fuck it there is no way to proceed....

Yes, they force you to buy their stuff with the Jedi mind trick (sarcasm).

Businesses are in it to make money, but since you guys think it is so easy, donate for a year's worth of service! Oh wait, that takes money (gasp)!

Oh and for those who are wondering, yes they rerun "Born on the 4th of July" and "Independence Day" every year on TV. In Croatia. A country that has nothing whatsoever to do with the USA. Thank hollywood

Yeah FDR is one of the worst presidents in the history of this country. Sure he inherited a bad situation but his solution was a massive warfare/welfare state. It didn't work. I'm not talking about consumer protections which are a tiny part of the bigger picture here. FDR administration was a catastrophe.

He had a big part in creating the military industrial complex and the American global militarism that we still to this day can not end that wastes us trillions. Fuck consumer protections if that's the cost of it! A murderous empire that continuously starts wars under false pretenses and the countless millions of people who are dead from it.

Enjoy your international graveyards and enslavement to the corporate socialist elite. Consumer protecitons. LOL you think you're protected??! ?!hahahahahha


I think all that tinfoil on your head has some negative impact on your brain wave activity. You really have no clue do you?

Do you really think that the US would have been better off had there NOT been a New Deal? An impoverished empire is soooooo much better than an industrial empire?? Really? Tell that to the citizens of North Korea.

Do not understand gender segregation in video game competition.

Okay actually that's a lie, I understand it completely: the people in charge, and sadly most of the competitive community at large, are sexist idiots. Like that one dumb bastard that insisted sexism was part of the culture and 'this isn't North Korea, I can say what I want' then followed it up with leering at one of the competitors through a camera.

It had nothing to do with sexism, unless you count regular sport gender segregation as sexist.

However their new segregation rules "Open for All" and "Women's Only" is definitively sexist. Not to mention retarded.

Besides the ‘‘pawlates,’’ the camp was filled with swimming, nature hikes, treadmill trots, facials, massages and healthy treats like organic granola, string beans and carrots.

Wow, people keep talking about 'First World Problems' and Ive seen a few that might qualify, but seriously this one takes the cake. Shit, P.T. Barnum must be laughing his ass off in hell/heaven/limbo/oblivion...

I have fond memories of this game. Its over the top humour was pretty cool, as was the innovative gameplay mechanic (at the time) of your infantry being able to comandeer enemy vehicles.

Lets hope the modern version retains the style of the original.

I remember Dice saying that Battlefield wouldn't be a yearly franchise because it would hurt the quality. Times have changed

As long as the main political players today remain large corporations, companies will never be held liable for the fabrications and propaganda designed to appease their customers.

This is a relatively harmless example. There are far worse ones out there, obviously not in the gaming industry.
