Nabbed it. Necromancer is good. Working on a Death Knight (necromancer/soldier). I'm gonna be a skellie-mancer in massive armor with a greatsword and just wreck the world. :D

Your first skill raises 3 skeletons. They are insanely fast, wickedly durable, and they mow down everything. They spawn randomly with either melee weapons or crossbows.

I started idling/selling Steam cards the night before last in order to pick up this xpack. I'm up to a bit over $15, so I'll probably be able to nab this sometime this weekend. Looking forward to the necromancer - I've heard only good things.

I haven't been back to the mainland since the day Morrowind was released... almost 4 months ago.

Here's a list of things I've found so far that are bullshit in Div:OS1:
Combat is turn-based, but out of combat is REAL-TIME with NO PAUSING.  Meaning that if you have ANY status effects of any kind that might kill you, you have to NOT KILL ENEMIES in order to have a chance to heal them before the battle is over, because otherwise it's an automatic death (your character will take the damage on literally frame 1 once combat ends).

I don't think I follow. But this doesn't sound like anything I've experienced in Div2.

Undead enemies are HEALED by Poison, generate Poison blotches on the ground which automatically heal themselves and all their buddies every turn, AND carry healing scrolls AND resurrection scrolls which ALSO work on undead, for whatever reason (yes, they constantly spam heals and resurrects on each other).

Div2, poison still heals undead. But regular healing does crazy damage to them. This also applies to undead in your party...

There is no resting of any kind, whether through action, an inn, or otherwise.  You can only find or buy items to heal (or when you level).

Div2, as long as you have a bedroll in your backpack (which is an unlimited use item that you find in the very beginning), you can rest whenever you want for instant full healz.

Even the weakest elemental spell changes the terrain for over 5 minutes in real time, minimum.  If you create a wall of fire to block your enemies path and then defeat them, be prepared to wait a long time before you can loot.

You... are supposed to use your own elements in conjunction with each other or to counter this stuff. You should always have someone with a Rain spell, which makes the aforementioned scenario barely even an inconvenience.

The interaction of elements is like 90% of the strategy of the game.

Already ran into a completely bugged quest that cannot be completed.  In Arhu's Failed Experiment, the commands do nothing, the dialogue triggers correctly saying it's disabled or weakened but it still instantly kills my party, this is apparently a known bug based on several guides.

Not surprised.

The "running" speed is incredibly slow.

Not a thing I've noted in Div2.

Fleeing a battle ONLY saves the ONE character, and NPCs you hire cannot flee.  Thus, fleeing any battle means every NPC dies permanently (until you level up so high you can crush the enemies surrounding their bodies).

I don't believe this is the case in 2, either, but then I've never had to flee a battle...

So yeah, not exactly a fun time.

Seriously. Drop 1 and play 2. It's so much better...

I'm just holding out to see what happens when Tom Brady gets his 6th ring this season. Will he get a 6th finger grafted onto his hand for it, or will they just acknowledge his awesomeness by issuing him a Super Bowl bracelet instead? Maybe a full-blown royal crown?

Been trying to league up in SFV for achievement purposes, keep hitting a wall where I get one match away and then always get matched up with people 10000+ miles away with bad connections (regardless of settings), or someone 3-4 leagues higher than me.  Oh well.  Probably not many people playing it right now anyway since Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite just came out.

Trying to get into Divinity: Original Sin, but damn does this game make it hard to get into.  No good plot hook, guards keep saying I'm not high enough level to leave the initial town, quest log already has 18 quests in it with no real direction on any of them even after talking to every NPC twice.  Guess it's time to run off into the wilderness.

Yeah, the first Div:OS was terrible for story and it never gets better. Mechanically great but tough to plow through. I gave up.

Div:OS2 on the other hand, starts strong and keeps going. It's a pretty brilliant game. I started playing it on a weekend day and it absorbed every minute of the weekend without me realizing it. I'd say skip the first game and go straight to the second.

I beat Dark Souls 2 once. With a fair bit of help from a friend.

Would not repeat.

I keep trying DS3 and failing, so I keep uninstalling it in rage, then reinstalling it a few weeks/months later and trying again.

I want to love these games. But I'm just not good enough. As heretical as it sounds, I'd love a version with a "less hard" mode, so I can enjoy the aesthetics and lore and worldbuilding without feeling like I'm punching myself in the face the entire time.

Hellblade is off the charts for the WOW MY EYES factor, too. It's the best looking game I've thrown at my PC yet.

My weekly RPG gaming group is starting up a pen-n-paper RPG this week based on the Hellgate London setting. Using the Savage Worlds rule system. This seems like it could be a lot of fun. :D

Well, it's still pretty great fun even after all this time. If you don't mind that it's single player only, go for it. :D

I reinstalled Hellgate London with the Revival Mod.

Forgot how much I loved this game.

There's a fan-made multiplayer version in the works (currently in a closed alpha mode, I believe). Color me intrigued.

What do you think?

That whatever drama does or does not exist on another forum needs to stay on that forum.

Yes... but that doesn't really answer the question. Is this something you now have access to or something?

Also, wasn't there rumor going around that Blizzard was making a D2 remaster?
