Okay I just have to ask as I have been wondering about this since Morrowwind. In all the games they keep citing "Elder Scrolls" lore. Where does this lore come from? Were there books about The Elder Scrolls worlds before Bethesda started making games? Or is all the lore from Bethesda?

Grimwar I hope the mod lets you play this. If it does you have 3 great games to enjoy. This is my fav series by far.  Glad to hear they are moving away from the faction stuff. I always just ignored that anyway.

Bummer. like everyone else I hope it's fiscal 2012 not calender 2012. This is my most anticipated game.

Sure you are at a level to equip the red items? Not sure if you can fouls a quest up. I think I cleared most of the keeps before I got the quests and I was ok.
445  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: January 11, 2011, 12:31:21 AM
The fortresses except for one are not associated with the main quest. Red does NOT mean you can't equip it, it means it's the highest level in the game. These have level restrictions to equip so you probably aren't rated high enough. look carefully it tells you. See, I enjoyed the mechanics of the game so I had a blast cleaning out the fortresses, getting tons of exp, high level loot, and boss battles at the end. But it is time consuming and ymmv.

Wow Gratch, I guess grinding out all those sky keeps took longer than I thought. I just finished FoV and steam says it was 117 hrs! I am slower than most people and do stop to read and check everything. On to your questioons.
1. Send everything you are not using back to the tower. the game won't let you send a quest item back. If you need something for a potion or enchantment then you can just pop down to the throne room and get them back.
2. You will stumble upon stronger stuff as you go along. Loot drops are by chance.
3. I was quite pissed to discover this when I was 95% done with FoV. If you right click with the text up the text goes away and the stats are still highlighted in red and green so you know if it improves you or not. R clicking again brings the text back up.
4. I upgraded all the areas of my tower just for the quests and the exp points. Never did notice what it improved.
447  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: January 08, 2011, 03:09:29 PM
Can't wait for the group here to get into FoV. I still really like it, but some of the quest stuff gets frustratingly hard and obtuse. Including one bit that doesn't even show up in your quest log. thank god for forum help or I would not have been able to move forward in the game.
448  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on: January 08, 2011, 03:04:18 PM
Looks like if all this scaling stuff pans out I won't be getting this. it just sucks all the fun and tension and satisfaction out of the game for me. I think having static placement of enemies and quests, some easy, some hard some complete ball busters, with appropriate rewards, with maybe some little clues here and there about which areas are which. Makes exploring so much more fun. I can't believe they Bethesda doesn't think that's a better way. Do the majority of their players just get frustrated if they get an area they can't beat and quit the game? Doing it this way would even be an easier game to build as I imagine programing scaling on the fly to be tough.
I'm finishing up DD2. When I first entered one of those flying fortresses I got my ass handed to me repeatedly. Went off and did other things, leveled up some, cranked some skills up, got some new trinkets, went back and exacted my revenge. Very satisfying. None of that can happen in a scaling game.
449  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: January 06, 2011, 05:59:42 AM
The important books will either give you a skill point as soon as you click on them, be put under the quest file when you pick them up, or if neither of them, then you can get rid of them. Gems you need for potions and enchantments. Hang on to them.
450  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: January 05, 2011, 04:28:29 PM
I am into the expansion now and here is how I did it for melee. I did go sword and shield simply because I was role playing and I liked it the most. In the expansion I respected my skills and dual wield is a bit easier and does tons more damage. I'm at 13 now and assume it goes to 15 but I can't find that trainer. I cranked up Strength and vitality with a bit in dex for ranged enemies. Also maxed the regen skill so I auto heal quickly. After I had my st and vit in the 80's I started upping my intel because it really helped the damage on the magic side of my weapons. In most situations in the game I could lay waste to most things. Ceekay those floating forts are a blast and you can really crank your stats up there. Here is the thing though, you cannot just wade into a fort, you have to do tons of kiting. May be tedious for some but I love the fighting in this game so I enjoyed it. Lots of goodies to be had as well.

very cool. Man there are so many new rpg's out our coming soon. Not sure when I will get to it thanks to the steam sales, but I enjoyed the first game and will play this at some point.

If you don't already know-get the Grey Wolves mod for SH3. Makes a great game even more atmospheric.

Thanks for the tip Greg. Will the Grey Wolves mod effect the ability for 2 to play it co-op?

Just that whoever you play with has to have the mod installed too. It really is great.

I reccommend putting points into mindread and regen. I am well into the flames expansion, and there is more than enough exp points to make up for it and many cool things from mindread. I have used mindread on everyone and am level 42 and still leveling. I also put points into wisdom so I level faster. To me the best warrior skills are
Spoiler for Hiden:
Whirlwind and 1000 cuts.
Also I put just enough into bow to shoot the pesky runaway guys. If you have enough in regen and aren't facing a mob then you can always outlast them. At least at normal difficulty.
455  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Steam Holiday Haul 2010 on: January 02, 2011, 06:21:44 PM
Bummer, nothing exciting to me today so that's a wrap. Still a good haul though.
456  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Steam Holiday Haul 2010 on: January 02, 2011, 03:36:14 AM
Alpha Protocol
Kings Bounty series
Red Faction Guerilla
Mafia 2
Amnesia:The Dark Descent

The only tough thing is trying to decide what to play first when I finish DD2. And we still have one more day,
457  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I now have a backlog on: December 29, 2010, 07:19:02 PM
How did I not pay attention to steam's sales last Christmas? Now I find myself really jonesing for Noon the next day to see what else will be on sale. I have also always been a one at a time gamer. But this sale combined with new games being $59.99 just makes me want to stockpile cheaper games. It get's a bit frustrating not to be able to join in the threads for the hot new games but that is the only downside. So now while I finish up Devine Divinity 2: Flames of Vengence add on I have Alpha Protocol, Kings Bounty and it's add ons, Red Faction Guerilla, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent in the hopper. All for about $25 total. That seems insane to me. Now I just have 2 things to ponder: which one to fier up first, and if I can possibly hold off when Deus Ex 2 and AC Brotherhood (for pc) ME2 and Witcher 2 come out. I have a feeling I will be adding more from steam over these next few days as well.
458  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: December 24, 2010, 05:30:21 PM
They do have plenty of targets you can destroy in dragon form. you will find them. I didn't like the dragon parts very much myself. Way too twitchy for me. If the enemies didn't flit around like mosquitoes it would have been better. i'm almost done with the main game and ready for FoV.
459  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: December 22, 2010, 05:03:48 PM
Yup some of it is rather corny and a tad forced. The lady who talks to you as you complete tasks is pretty good though.
There were two sections where I wound up turning the difficulty down.
Spoiler for Hiden:
The end of the dry well quest where you have to fight as a dragon. Just kept getting killed on normal. The last mission in Aleroth where you have to keep all enemies off the mage for 1 minute. Could not get closer than 10 seconds on normal.
Thank God for difficulty settings or I probably couldn't have finished the game.

Yes I can't let this thread die. I'm loving the sky keeps. At first I hated them. I was kinda clueless and a tad weak. Now I love cleaning them out and finding out what's in those chests, with the nice boss battles at the end. Anyone strong enough to wade in and take on a mob? I have to kite out a few at a time, even with the new uber weapon I found.

At least in one spot in DD2 turning the difficulty down didin't help at all.

brand new engine to be used.

Woot.

They've reached the limits of what the old engine can do quite a while ago, IMHO. Of course, modders went FAR beyond what the devs ever expected (and made the game look a shit-ton nicer in the process, too, but that's another argument).

They are being kinda vauge about the "new engine." Not really clear if it is new from the ground up of they have just modified Gambreyo so much that at this point they can call it their own. I'm sure details will start to dribble out. Please no leveling of enemies with you is all I ask for.
464  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: December 13, 2010, 04:14:57 PM
So am I the only one still playing? I must say the difficulty spikes are kinda annoying. Leading to my # 1 game hatred: repeating. Dragon combit in the air is kind of a pain as well as other flying things seem to move 3x's as fast as I can. Only way I can beat them is the area effect thing. Still motivated to keep playing and get to the expansion game.
465  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on: December 13, 2010, 04:00:35 PM
Will the NPC's still lok really creepy?  That's the least of my issues but I wonder. Darn it, despite my doubts I'm starting to get excited for this. Massive RPG's are so like crack to me.

Damn those floating fortresses are hard! Really. They kinda throw you into thedeep end in terms of how to play them too.
467  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on: December 12, 2010, 05:49:45 PM
Ohh, and Oblvion had pretty bad loot drops, or loot at the end of a dungeon or whatever. I know ES is not exactly that kind of game and I know that balancing that kind of stuff must be a complete nightmare but if I find some creepy out of the way dungeon and work hard and clear it out it would be nice to get some shiny cool thing for it. Sounds like I hated Oblivion yet I played for over 100 hrs.

I love me some dragons, and dragon killing, allthough I'm sure some will find that a bit stale. Skill advancement through reps is not ideal but not a deal breaker if it returns. Cookie cutter dungeons not ideal, but not a deal breaker either. Auto leveling of enemies would be a no go for me. Now that they should start dribbling out info for the game in the comming months it will be interesting to see if/how they address that.

They nerfed my sword as well. Probably the same weapon you were using. Right at a point where I really needed it.  I really need to use my potions now. I think I will be fine doing Aleroth. Mission is pretty simple, just frustrating.
472  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity 2: Ego Draconis/ Flames of Vengeance add-on/ Dragon Knight Saga info! on: December 07, 2010, 04:55:17 PM
Me too. ooops. Anyone know if you should finish the fjords before going to Aleroth? I kinda think that might be the case but it did let me ride the airship so I wonder.

I found a key at the bottom of a cauldron that was full of lettuce. It seemed to be an odd place for a key.

That was in the mill and if you read the miller's mind he said he hid it there to keep it away from his wife-I forget why. But yeah, most of the key stuff is illogical.
I have to admit The next area after you get the tower is a bit frustrating. I can't for the life of me keep track of the main quest. Invisable barriers are annoying. I then got all the seeds and then got blocked inside that temple and couldn't figure out why. Had to go online for that answer. So I just defaulted to my usual in rpgs in that I just go everywhere I can and clean out every area I can and then most things work themselves out.

It is definitly capped at 30 which according to the forums just bugs the crap out of some people. I sure can't notice anything. The devs have said they cap it to keep all the game threads synched up and in some instances uncapping it can increase stuttering. just fyi.

Put in about 90 minutes last night.  I have a i750 with an nvidia 470 so I pumped the graphics option to Extreme to see what would happen.  It ran like a champ, I'm happy to report.  A little bit of choppiness, but not enough to spoil the experience. 

The game itself is just as fun as the console version I played a while ago.  I started with Ego Draconis because I never finished it, and because I want to see the changes in the "remastered" version.  So far I haven't noticed any big changes, but it's still early.  The leveling mechanic is just as addictive as I remembered, thankfully.  And combat is fun without being too twitchy.  I'm really enjoying it so far.

Anyone know an option I can get rid of in graphics that I wouldn't really notice yet would maybe push me to smooth as butter status from the aforementioned slightly choppy?
I don't know for sure as I'm running maxed on my 460 without stutter but usually shadows are the culprit. try pegging them down a notch.

finally got a chance to get back to this last night for a little bit.  I had to give up my plans to go melee only and start using a bow occasonally for the ranged enemies.  I think I found the dungeon with the poison traps that was mentioned a few posts up; was it the 'temple' in the bandit camp?
Yup. I do enjoy some of the bow stuff. Hopefully you will as well.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Loved the island and "one guy lives and one guy dies set up. The choices seemed kinda obvious to me so I worry a bit I was fooled. Could have looked it up on line but that's not how I play. The battle tower is also pretty cool. Nice to unload all my crap. Haven't visited all the levels yet as stupid work got in the way icon_biggrin Can't wait to get back home and continue. The cut scene where Damien's bad girlfriend gets the axe was pretty graphic. I can kinda see why he is rather pissed.

I have a few annoyances but nothing dealbreaking. Some of the puzzles can be obtuse. And there is some pain in the butt insta-death. The dungeon that was half poison releasing causing your character to die over and over until you figured out what to do was not fun.
Shooting the bow is a blast however. And in most rpgs I kinda like to do all the side quests before proceding on the main, if possible. It just cracked me up that the disembodied voice helping me kept nagging me to go do the main thing. This game is very funny.
