    Geneforge 4 Streaming?

    Hey fellas, is it possible to stream Geneforge on Mixer? Some of my friends are interested in the game but due to lack of quality videos on YouTube, I'm wondering if it's possible to stream Geneforge 4 somehow. Thanks o/
  3. This is actually my favorite final dungeon of all of Geneforge. Upon entering the caves for the first time, you feel isolated, disconnected with the outside world. You are alone in this unknown cavern with an unshakable feeling of terror. Hell, even your companion (Alwan or Greta) even express how terrified they are of this place. Near the entrance, you'll find some bodies carrying the passage bracelets. Now you, the player understand this; this area is extremely dangerous and frightening. Whatever happened to these dead people might happen to you unless you can defend yourself. From now on unless you can stop the machine, you are forever hunted. Now for the area itself, it's crazy fun people it's so unpredictable. You can find a Shaper Ghost, a unique Eyebeast, a hella lot of Reaper Turrets, Twinspirit Drakons, a very strong Rotghroth trio, a friggen Radiant Ur-Drakon, and a crazy powerful Creator. All of these fights make you utilize everything you have in your arsenal because they all have different weaknesses. Now the one thing I dislike about this dungeon is the requirement of 20 mechanics. Sure, using all of your mechanic gear plus the artifact infiltrator ring gives a great boost, and sure the Drakon and Mage in the Monastery can boost your mechanics a little is nice, but more than likely you're gonna have to sacrifice some skill points to ensure the shaping vats stop creating annoying ass monsters (run-on sentence). Upon finding the final boss (which is a creator), you can't help but feel a strange symmetry to this, on the first island you fought a creator, and on the last island you fight a creator, except this creator is completely hell bent on destroying you, creating Rotghroths, Eyebeasts, and Drakons. A super fun, challenging fight it is. If you defeat him, he drops an Omnicharm, a fitting reward for someone who had just braved the deeps of the Caves. God this place is just TOO awesome. Not compared to Geneforge 5's "Solar-Powered Guy". Yes, I think in the end, the Monastery caves will be my favorite end dungeon. Thanks for reading and tell me what's your favorite end dungeon Long live the Rebellion -Vinny

    G3 is done and I liked it

    Did you complete the secret end-game dungeon, the Monastery Caves? You could see how your monster army fares against the toughest enemies in the game

    I actually adore how many different options can affect the overall story and the way people perceives you.

    If you give Monarch's papers to the Rebels that's when you'll be locked out of the Shapers.

    Geneforge 4 Trakovites *Spoilers*

    Regarding Moseh, I think it's so obnoxious that if you're a rebel he'll always drain 2 attributes from you before fighting him with no way of getting them back. What I do now is play the Shaper side until Alwan gives me the quest to repair Moseh, just so I get to keep my attributes the way I want. Of course I kill Moseh and the Barrier Zone Guardians because they're ez af.

    Geneforge 4 Trakovites *Spoilers*

    I have 3 characters in my Geneforge 4 game. One Pro rebel, one pro Shaper, and one neutral. I tested all three of them in the Trakovite ending and it was apparent you only get exiled if you are heavily pro rebel. My pro rebel character had all the rewards you could receive from the mage in Derenton Freehold, so you could use the mage rewards as a reference for how pro rebel you are being. I suppose if you aren't eligible to receive the last couple of rewards, you'll get the execution ending, but I can do further testing if needed.

    G3 small oops

    Yeah if you could just travel between previously visited islands without the use of the boats I feel like the game would be accepted a lot more lol

  12. In Chapter 3, you receive a quest from a serville master to find his lost servilles. You eventually find them in the Southern Grosch bound by Monarch. Attempting to restore the servilles will cause them to attack you (even with serville mechs), and shutting off the machine instantly kills them. Is there anyway to actually save these bois?

    Geneforge 4 Southern Grosch Servilles

    Damn rip servilles
  14. Hey fellas! I want to play through Geneforge 4 again but not as my typical class. My normal class is a warrior that specializes in melee weapons, mechanics, and leadership that gets backed up by 2 fire creations. I've played all playstyles (warrior, mage, summoner, baton-wielder.) Any I missed?

    That could work but why would you want to play Geneforge on a console in the first place?

    G2: Creation Questions

    You do benefit from keeping a creation that's a pretty good tier. I.E. keeping a fyora through the game really isn't practical, but keep, let's say a cryoa is a lot more beneficial because of it's strength and versatility. You should absorb your creations if you leveled up your shaping only if it levels up your creations past where they were originally absorbed. Let's say you have a level 5 fyora. If you're shaping skill allows you to shape a fyora that's level 7, you should absorb it.

    Geneforge remakes.

    When will the fabled remakes come out for Geneforge? and will it be a remake on just G1 or all the Geneforges? Will all the Geneforge games be mashed into one giant game where choices will be carried over from each game? That would be super cool imo.

    Geneforge remakes.

    Wow I'll be out of high school by then.
  22. Darkstone is hella challenging my man you get a ton of goodies and an enchanted forge that has like 6 containers I use for storage. You also get a really neat sword if you're a warrior.
  23. G4 was also my first Geneforge so that's awesome, and I assume you're referring to my man Shaper Lethos at the Cairn Gates. He's cool and all, being an unknown character you just met wielding an aura of mystery. He ain't much though, the serville caravan will more or less wipe the floor with his shaper ass. Now if you want to talk I N T I M I D A T I O N, let's talk about General Crowley, the Guardian you meet when you've exiting the Shaper Camp in the Forsaken Lands. After infiltrating this heavily armed shaper dominated area, you slip away only to be stopped by a Guardian. You can actually spot him before his dialogue begins and when I was around 8 or 9 years old, I would hover over his character to check his health. His health was something of a whopping 1321 HP or somewhere around those lines. I'd be lying if I said my heart didn't skip a few beats. Now you, a puny rebel lifecrafter-in-training would have no chance, and even as a kid I knew that. This whole event was just so frightening to me as a child lmao. Returning to G3, the Warped Creator at the north of the first island is also incredibly intimidating you're first time through. The in-game sprite for this monstrosity was so proud .. and so menacing and the same time. It could attack with high power and inflict debuffs all whilst creating creatures at the same time. I think the Warped Creator is a lot more challenging than Lethos anyways. Anyways, I love the way you to talk about G4 though, you speak of it in such a genuine and endearing way it puts a smile on my face. We woulda been great friends. "Moseh and Elizah" don't forget about Shaftoe. That guy is so obnoxious with his infinitely spawning creatures. Anyways, the Barrier Zone Guardians are in Chapter of 3 of G4 so I'll take some enemies from the third island (Dhonal's Isle) for my explanations. The first mini boss would be Spharon, in Spharon's Lands. I'll admit Spharon himself isn't really ALL that intimidating, but his army of magically altered seville behemoths really made you wonder what kind of mad man Spharon is, if he could control this many magically attuned maniacs. Fighting Spharon himself really isn't terrible, at least until he becomes immortal until you destroy his Horcrux in a nearby pot or whatever it is. The idea of Spharon is the vision of a man so incredibly powerful he is pretty much on a whole new level of dangerous. Another enemy, a favorite of mine, is the Golem Monstrosity deep within the Darkstone Core. Before you enter the area where the Golem resides, dialogue options stated that this place was sealed because a terrible experiment went wrong, thus everyone and everything inside the labratory was trapped inside .. forever. Now reading those text boxes really made me feel some type of way. Was a excitement? Wonder? Fear? Perhaps a mixture of all three. The idea of an all powerful enemy trapped inside a place that the Shapers deemed too dangerous for it's own good was such a cool idea to me. Before entering the actual Shaping lab, you'll find many bodies with a text box reading, "It looks like a desperate battle took place here many years ago." I'd like to think that there were some people who tried to stop the creation of the Golem before it took place. Entering the lab, a text box in the middle of the screen will read, "There are two dead shapers here. They were trapped when the disaster happened." Hoo. If that doesn't make you consider turning around, you're quite brave. Of course, the actual battle with the Golem is very difficult, with the Golem able to stack acid attacks when it can attack up to 3 times. But yeah, incredibly good writing here. Oh yeah, if the player meet Ghaldring at the start of the game, it would signify how far the limits of Shaping could go, and the player would understand that.
  24. Geneforge 3's mini bosses are so much more intimidating than G4's imo.
  25. That weirdo artila is such a scumbag if you fight him early because his venom does like 50 a turn lol
