CLOUDS/DARKSIDE OF XEEN IS THE FUCKING AWESOMENESS

Dr. Chuck Klosterman, LLC (jjjusten), Wednesday, 7 July 2010 20:21 (eight years ago) Permalink

unfortunately they were IV and V respectively so that has nothing to do with this thread

Dr. Chuck Klosterman, LLC (jjjusten), Wednesday, 7 July 2010 20:23 (eight years ago) Permalink

it has a little something to do with the general feel imo

roxymuzak, Wednesday, 7 July 2010 20:34 (eight years ago) Permalink

i get excited sometimes

Dr. Chuck Klosterman, LLC (jjjusten), Wednesday, 7 July 2010 20:35 (eight years ago) Permalink

roxymuzak, Thursday, 8 July 2010 16:52 (eight years ago) Permalink

i think i sank 20-30 hours into world of xeen without doing anything at all from the main plot. ventured into some random mountain range and got my party slaughtered. stopped playing.

thomp, Monday, 12 July 2010 08:36 (eight years ago) Permalink

I'm alternately reading that as "world of ween" and "world of peen". sorry.

i also downloaded an emulator and am playing my way through every zelda game (again) on this tour

roxymuzak, Monday, 12 July 2010 13:29 (eight years ago) Permalink

Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven was the best one in the series. I like how you can switch from first-person to turn-based mode. They should make a Might and Magic game alternative to Oblivion in the future but I doubt that will happen

Im gonna play this. I found a basic patch in the forums
I hung up the cloth map that came with MM6 on my wall.
I even have the giant Strategy guide for this game. Oooo holographic game disc

anyone read the gormenghast series?

proprietor of gib (roxymuzak), Wednesday, 11 August 2010 04:15 (eight years ago) Permalink

Sigh. I have a bind-up copy of the Gormenghast novels under my desk. I couldn't bear more than maybe 50 pages and it's been checked out from the library for like a year.

yah its really slow to start and sort of self-serious and prolix but i ended up really liking it, once i got accustomed to the tone and pacing. i mean i really liked its otherwordliness & its characters even if it could become a chore, sometimes.

did u ever play any d&d, rm?

i really liked those gormenghast bbc miniseries a few years ago w/ jonathan reese meyer *before he was famous*

plax (ico), Wednesday, 11 August 2010 13:44 (eight years ago) Permalink

gf loved them, and loved the book- feel kinda guilty that i've not been able to get into it.

tried watching the dvd- JRM is awful, i literally cannot watch him in it.

roxy did you ever play d&d?

Lamp, Monday, 30 August 2010 17:37 (eight years ago) Permalink

roxy have you read game of thrones yet or what

not everything is a campfire (ian), Monday, 30 August 2010 17:38 (eight years ago) Permalink

i kinda wish i hadn't read song of ice and fire books since now its looking like the series is never gonna be finished and it's just an endless jumble of cliffhangers and loose ends

i refused to ever start the wheel of time series until it's been completed, for the same reason

ciderpress, Monday, 30 August 2010 17:45 (eight years ago) Permalink

like it's been 5 years now since the 4th book came out and i forget all the plot details and will probably have to reread all 4000 pages of the existing books if i'm to continue onward in the future

it's definitely the best of the best w/r/t pulpy fantasy series though, i loved it the first time through

ciderpress, Monday, 30 August 2010 17:48 (eight years ago) Permalink

despite the at times godawful writing i think wot is 'better' and a 'bigger achievement' in fantasy than songs of fire & ice. the plotting and world-building are just n/l

Lamp, Monday, 30 August 2010 17:51 (eight years ago) Permalink

observation: there are a lot of fantasy authors named terry
