  1. I really want to enjoy this game but for some reason it's just not grabbing me. I felt the same with Avadon. The writing is very good but everything else, from graphics, to combat, to overall story, to character progression, all feel like a downgrade compared to Avernum/Geneforge. Also the UI is rather clunky and it's making it hard to do simple things like put things in my inventory, I miss the fluidness of avernum's UI (the first series). I'm going to stick with QW out of hope it gets better, but am honestly a little disappointed. Expected much better from Spiderweb, especially given the kickstarter funding!
  2. Just started reading a book called "The Toy Makers" by Robert Dinsdale.
  3. I just checked steam, apparently the game is ready to buy !
  4. Oh wow, I didn't expect it to be releasing so soon. This is awesome
  5. I have never played spiderweb games for their graphics, but even I'll admit queen's wish looks rather unappealing 😐 I hope this style doesn't become the new standard for spiderweb games.
  6. hey congrats, I don't even remember how long it's been for me. I barely check this forum, still love the games though they never lose their charm
  7. I agree these games are great probably the best written indie games ever, I only wish the graphics were on par with the writing. they remind me of baldur's gate and the original fallout, and those are like 20 years old now.
  8. I'm about 1/4th of the way through Unseen by Alexandra Sokoloff, enjoying it
  9. fallout 1 + 2 are turn based RPGs with a sci fi setting. they're not new, but they are still worth playing IMO.
  10. Says on the news page it will be released late 2014, seeing how it's already mid december I'm guessing that will be in the next week or so ?
  11. Sorry about the double post, also I didn't know the thread was old. /walks out
  12. I vote Alorael as the most active member because I see his name around here all the time.
  13. -jaw drop- YOU LIE. -resists the urge to look it up-
  14. I learned panacea from it too. And mitigate.
  15. Agreed. As an added bonus it also expanded my vocabulary, lol. Jeff used a lot of words I was unfamiliar with as a child.
  16. You know what, I'll probably do that. $15 for the entire trilogy is a bargain. It's a shame some of the older games (like nethergate, exile, etc.) aren't compatible with windows 7 64bit, or i'd buy them too. And I played the demos back in the day, had a ton of fun.I imagine the dated engine won't stop me from enjoying them now.
  17. Didn't think so, although it would make an awesome early xmas present Guess I just have to be patient
  18. Thanks for that, still a long way to go I see I was hoping they'd be released before the end of this year, so I could get them during the xmas steam sale. By the way, why is metacritic writing that the year of release for a2 is nov 3rd, 2012 ? http://www.metacritic.com/company/spiderweb-software
  19. Are the Avernum 2 & 3 remakes coming out soon? I went ahead and bought the avernum 1 remake and want to complete my collection I plan to get 4,5 and 6 at some point too, but not before 2 and 3.
  20. runner


    Is Jeff planning to remake the geneforge series like he is with avernum? I would love to play an updated version.
  21. I haven't played a spiderweb game in about 5 years, so hearing that Jeff is remaking the whole Avernum trilogy is quite amazing. I hope this thread is a bit of an exaggeration. Avernum(the original) was a great improvement upon exile.
  22. steam got me too! 150 games, played about 20. And during xmas I plan to get more.
  23. you still do this!! (the signature thing) Sorry if that's random, but I just returned to this forum after a long absence. One of the things that reminds me of this place is you, with your clever signature quotes. I was excited to see you still do them, haha.
  24. Are the Shapers wrong to demand complete servitude of their creations? Imagine if you will if this group of all powerful individuals existed, and, just like in the game, you were given the choice of siding with them or against them. What would you do? Me, in the game I was a loyal Shaper through and through. I liked the power and respect that route gave me. In real life, I really doubt I could be so ruthless. Obviously genetic engineering isn't quite at the stage of making complete organisms yet (to say the least), but if it were, and if their creation and destruction were so simple, it probably would cheapen the value we currently give to life. From that perspective, maybe, just maybe, I could see myself having a couple of serviles to do my cooking and cleaning A few battle betas to act like guard dogs. It would be fun, and I think I'd see the merit in the Shaper philosophy that my creations owe me their lives.
