Grim Dawn is Fun
« on: June 26, 2017, 12:19:56 PM »
Finally got around to playing this and I have to say that I am hooked as of now.  This has been a very fun surprise for me.  Right now I am playing  a two handed Shaman who is somewhere around level 26.

I am finding this game to have more in common with D2 LOD than D3.  D3 was fun in its own way but was less about character building and more about End Game.  GD is more focused on different builds and the journey through the different levels.

I am curious if anyone else is playing this here.

I never heard of it.  This likely surprises nobody.

Interested to see who else played and liked it.

Pretty sure I've been saying for ages that Grim Dawn is awesome.

It's the best ARPG since Diablo 2. All the best parts of D2 combined with the best parts of Titan Quest (the classes). All set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world with a great art style to boot.

TheNix was into it.  I don't have time for another one of those now.

Yes this.

I can see myself sinking a lot of hours into this.  To me this is the best cross between D2 and Titan's Quest which were my two favorite ARPGs.

Does it have an Isenhart's Case in it?  It must if you like it so much!  ;)

If it does I have not found it yet.   :(

I think you would really enjoy the game.  That said you seem pretty happy with D3.

I might get it during the Steam Sale.  I think it is $13 or something.  D3 has the necromancer pack out today, so that will keep me busy for awhile!

But Grim Dawn is like a whole game FULL of necromancers! And it's better than D3. :D

I played Grim Dawn for something like 10 months and it was great.  Unfortunately there we so many patches and hotfixs over that time that the constant dabbling with the gameplay drove me nuts.   If there is one thing that pisses me off more than anything else is constant shifting of the goalposts. I gave up on it and decided to give Path of Exile another try.  I might try GD again after the expansion settles down.

I enjoyed PoE...I have a difficult time pin point exactly why I don't want to play it any longer.

I will see where I am at with GD once I finish Veteran level.  I'm not exactly sure but I am guessing I am 60% done with this level.

I say PoE is poop because this is 2017 and there is no excuse these days for gender-locked classes. None. Fuck them.

Well to be honest you can choose a gender in GD but I have a hard time telling the whether the toon is female.  They all are burly.

Not all armors are so bulky that you can't tell. At least, I can always tell the difference.

But the choice exists. That's what matters.
