RISEN 2: DARK WATER (PC)


It's somewhat shaping out like a proper Risen title.

Risen and Gothic both started you out with next to nothing. Through survivalist tactics and careful grinding, you eventually ascend into the roll of an armor-clad badass or a staff-toting spell-slinger. Dark Waters kind of does the same the thing. You begin with not even a shirt on your back and a basic sword, but you (should, at least) have plenty of healing items called "provisions." Pretty much any time you nab a generic food, instead of separating each particular morsel into slightly different items types, they're all counted as provisions. Yeah, so a jug of wine and an apple have the same effect...

Gaming Progress: the RPG clearing project has begun!
July 04, 2015

Chaos is dead, and Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light has come to a close. I have temporarily shelved most of my other projects (Chronicles of a Dark Lord, Arc Rise Fantasia, etc). , with the exception of Soul Reaver 2 and Injustice: Gods Among Us, which I intend to fire up now and then. The time has come to begin the big RPG project I blogged about months ago and kick a few RPGs out of my backlog. It'll be a long, grueling process that might leave me sick of RPGs. I'll probably visit some short action titles along the way to make sure that doesn't happen.

I'm nearing the end of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, which will signify the beginning of my W-RPG project. Wish me luck as I leap blindly into the final dungeon.

4 Heroes of Light and Why Asmodeus is a Crappy Boss
June 21, 2015

My quest in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light nearly met with tragedy...

Well, okay, I'm being hyperbolic. It was more like a rage-quit that would have lasted two days at most. You see, up until recently, I've been stomping most of the competition. I hit a few doable snags, but mostly toppled bosses without much issue. Even Rolan--and god, was that an epic battle--fell without too many complications.

I expected my winning streak to continue once the world plunged into darkness. I figured that with the prospect of unbridled exploration I would have the opportunity to take advantage of the choicest loot and bolster my team into an almost unfair killing squad.

...then I met Asmodeus.

As True had said with his most recent blog post, this is too funny to not share.
