Completed 3030 Deathwar Redux last week. Thoroughly enjoyed it, although the game didn't deliver the "Monkey island" puzzle solving experience alongside space combat as I'd hoped it would. The story remained satisfying until the end, with the lead character refusing to let go of his principle gripe until the last moment. The game has replay value as well, having started a second play through and been able to do things differently this time around, in terms of experiencing story content. A worthwhile buy for the price.

Version switchers, no CD fixes help too. Can post links if you are keen

Would be handy.

I do have a version of the game on the USB stick that came with the D3 collectors edition.

I keep pondering revisiting the glory days of 1.09 but, I don't know if I could get my old disks to work.

Ah Rush, the band.
One of the greatest bands of all time.
Fronted by a bona-fide musical genius.

, that rush was any good, let alone worthy or a major part of it

Is it the same game as previous two?  Meaning climb tower...clear fog...get weapon...find enemy bases...take over enemy base...have new safe house...hunt animals...craft larger/better storage equipment.  Rinse...repeat.

And more side quests that you can shake a stick at.

Sunk many hours in 3030 Deathwar Redux at the weekend.

I really, really like this game.

I got 3030 Deathwar Redux because it was only 7.

Early impressions are its not quite as much "Monkey Island" style point and clickery as I'd like but, the quirkiness is there and I like the graphics a lot. Not sure about space combat yet. Better than I thought it would be but, I've only had one fight so far.

Inarius set dungeon was a doddle. Completed and mastered in a single go.  Slayer complete, working through the next one, Champion? now, which is simply a matter of attrition.

I rather like the Inarius Bone Armour build I'm using. A magical version of a WW barb in many respects, with an occasional massive burst damage, then back to running around and bone whirlwind  things to death.

Getting a bit tired of the game.  I think I need a change of pace...SOON.

I did take a break from the game for a year. :)

Oh, that's a relief.

The last season I did, which was over a year ago now, took me quite a few attempts to succeed at the set challenge for the Monk I was playing. I remember banging my head against the wall at frustration at the set challenges for the Barbarian.

I suspect my stumbling block will be Champion, as mastering set dungeons is a ballache. I don't know if I have the time or the enthusiasm for that, or to do any of the grind to go beyond it.

But, I'll see.

Anyone here know if Deathwar redux 3030 is as good as it looks? A game that combines Lucasarts/SCUMM system point and click gameplay with an Elite style open space exploration, seems potentially really, really good and it has positive reviews.

I hadn't realised they'd up the caps on Legendary Gems to 100.

I dusted off my WW Barb and started playing him again, as I can actually progress his gems. Then I looked at a guide, saw I had items slightly incorrect configured, made a few changes and breezed through a GR 68.
