    Well, they definitely tried to encourage those thoughts by putting the Butcher on level 2, where no character is likely to be high enough level to face him comfortably. "Ah, fresh meat!" still chills my spine all these years later.

    On my fresh Warrior run, I had the good fortune to not only find a Fire Wall scroll, but to have found a book of Healing and rushed my Magic up to 17 to be able to cast it. This is coincidentally the exact amount of Magic needed to use the scroll. His axe is mighty fine and chops skeletons in two without slowing down.

    My first ever Rogue made extensive use of Fire wall. Find a horde of enemies, run away dropping Fire walls behind me as I go, and follow up by sniping anything gaining ground on me with my bow. Granted that tactic had me fall flat on my face when I hit Diablo for some reason... XD

    I've startet Anachronox and made good progress into the game. So far I'm hooked

    My Knowledge about the game was pretty much non-existant, but from the screenshots on the GoG product page I was expecting a Cyperpunk RPG.

    I was rather suprised that it is actually a Space Opera RPG, much closer to Mass Effect than to Deux Ex or Shadowrun.

    Anachronox is more specifically influenced by Chrono Trigger.

    Though there was a trick where you lure the Butcher to the stairs that lead down to level 3 and just circle around the stairs with him chasing you until he gets himself 'stuck' on the stairwell. Then you just nickle-and-dime him to death with arrows for an easy kill.

    Well, I'm now officially lost on what is going on in my Warrior run. Thanks to a wealth of +Magic items dropping, my Warrior is technically a better Sorceror than my Sorceror was at the same level. His Firebolt is of a comparable level, he knows Lightning (which I didn't pick up until the Caves last game), and he just got offered freaking Elemental from Adria. On level 5. I didn't pick it up, because I don't like spells that empty my entire mana pool, but I had the stats to learn it.

    It has made for a fun and different playthrough though. I've ditched the Cleaver and gone sword-and-board, and I just gather enemies up in front of me and then hit them with a few bolts of lightning before cleaning up with the blade.

    Also: A room with a Stone Clan Archer boss pack, screened by a wall of Black Deaths!?!? Game, you think you're funny, but you're not.

    Just started playing Apotheon, the game that I dreamt about when I was a kid and read about Greek heroes and gods and how they all hit each other with spears and clubs and rocks and lightning.
    Just like in my dreams. I... I'm so happy.
    The last crazy minstrel.

    Ongoing stuff that I play at least somewhat frequently:

    Summoners War: Sky Arena (mobile)
    Overwatch (PS4)

    Stuff that I play sometimes:

    Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4)
    Monster Hunter World (PS4)
    Secret of Mana (SNES Classic and also PS4; I have different saves for playing solo and with a friend)

    I was gearing up to play Anthem (PS4), but then all my friends who were planning to buy it didn't, so I haven't played it yet. May still at some point, but I'm not sure.

    On fallout.

    Yep, NCR's a good idea, and it's a shame that Fallout doesn't develop. The newer games are like, 200 years after the bombs and it's still small tribes. What you need is huge bands of warlords, fuedalism and rival empires, people trying to rebuild but having completely different ideas of what that should look like...
    Sticking to tiny towns and psycho raiders, throwing in super mutants because you can't think of a proper faction... ugh.
    If you want that, sure, but don't set the game around 2277 or whatever. put it 20 years later or so. 2090 like.


    Now, For fallout 4.
    The premise is fundamentally flawed. The institute should've won long before the game actually begun. The institute's most logical move involved them escorting you out of the vault with your entire family and any other survivors, you should've started with the institute immediately, and they should be openly ruling. They have the means to militarily dominate, economically dominate and culturally dominate. The railroad doesn't have the luxury to be who they are and the BoS shouldn't be able to match them for firepower or numbers. If fallout 4 was ever to run with the institute story, you'd have to be a synth on the run or scared of an insane dictator. Every other Idea of mine gets shot down by myself.

    Stellaris is hard. At least for now.

    Don't worry, about the time you've got a handle on things they'll have an overhaul update that changes everything.

    If you haven't discovered it yet already, if you click on your resource icons, it brings up the market screen where you can buy and sell the various resources. Also don't let the computer design your ships, they're all trash. Stellaris thread for more info for ya.
