    ...a quarter? I'm a quarter of the way through the game? For the love of [censored], what the [more censored] can come after this? I don't understand how they can [woah, you don't even want to know!] so wrong. Well, are the stage battles any easier/quicker with the difficulty turned down?

    Currently playing hte old classic Rollercoaster Tycoon. I am also playing the Enhanced Edition of Baldur's gate. Currentlystuck on Balduran's Isle, as the final battle of that thing is FUCKING HARD because the final boss has health regeneration.

    Traffic wouldn't necessarily have a huge impact on your employment rates; only a retarding effect on development. If you have high unemployment, likely it's because you had large employers which you had bulldozed to make way for I-HT which you didn't have the skilled labor yet for.

    I could not decide between a Cleric/Mage and a Fighter/Mage so I flipped a coin and ended up with the latter.

    My character, Jaheira, Khalid, Edwin, Kivan and Imoen just made it to the Nashkell Mines after clearing all Beregost quests and surrounding regions before storming the Gnoll castle. About 6-7 hours played so far, the game is still a blast and a breeze.

    I'm thinking of shaking up my party composition a bit by kicking Khalid and Jaheira out.

    Oh good. a lot of people do not like the Fighter Mage, but seriously, that thing is actually rather insanely powerfull even at lower levels. Those mage protective spells become a LOT more effective all of a sudden. Blur + Mirror Image? Awesomeness. Blur + Mirror Image + Stoneskins + Archmage robe of <Alignment>? Super awesomeness. There's some other things in there too.

    If you plan on kicking Khalid and Jaheira out, you can have good luck with replacing them with Viconia or Branwen and Kagain or Corgan. Corgan is a personal favorite of mine, just because the way he talks and how the BG1NPC project portrays him.

    So... Just bought ME3 and a GamersGate collection containing Planetscape: Torment, BGI & II, and some other games, so... Probably going to end the ME trilogy and then play through P:T. Already moded it and played the first minutes. It certainly seems interesting... ^^

    Today in Backlog plz go!:

    Finally finished Gemini Rue. Was rather good, plus the story was damn nice. As people have often noted the shooting was a bit pants and even hurt the game to a degree (though later on its logical as to why its there) and I found a couple of puzzles a little "Click everything with every option till you figure it out" but the vast majority of it was logical. Did resort to a walkthrough for at least two moments.
    If people want to play it don't do so in Steam, or at least turn off the notification that a friend has logged on / is playing something / something is happening. Since the game is so low res the message takes up a quarter of the screen!

    Since Xotic seemed to go mad and not recognize my Keyboard I put that a little further down the Backloggery list, and moved on to Botanicula. Warm fuzzy feelings inside as I play it.

    Sharteel is also a pretty good fighter, although I think her CON is a bit lacking.

    Have fun with those Kobold Commandos.

    I finally thought to go play Digital: A Love Story. I foolishly didn't even realise it was free all this time. It was certainly engrossing, but I'm not about to well up about it.

    About halfway through my Playthrough C of Nier. I suspect I may just end up watching Ending D on youtube, but we'll see.

    In my quest to find something to play on the PC proper: FInally gave Mafia 2 a shot after the gas-station driving that originally made me bounce off. I think I am partway through Chapter 5 (the one with the mission from the demo) and yeah, still a crap game that sacrifices gameplay for being "artsy". Mafia 1 wasn't anything amazing, but at least it always stayed consistent. Is great how in Mafia 2 I can sometimes fly past a cop at a red light doing 2x the speed limit and other times immediately get pulled over for going a few miles above the limit or ignoring a stop sign.

    Is that a boxed copy of Nier, or does one of the digital services have it and I've just not noticed?

    I'm not sure what he means about Mafia being artsy. I have a lot of problems with it (overall it's an ok game) but I wouldn't call it artsy...

    Boxed. I think an author whose blog I read mentioned it a few weeks back so I just grabbed it off Amazon

    Apparently all you need to be called artsy is to have a long shot at somebody's face and some light jazz playing.

    Hrmm... don't wanna spoil much, to be honest, but I also feel seeing Ending D on Youtube would be a disservice. I'll just say that getting ending D doesn't require any extra grinding of any kind, just reloading your latest save and going for the final boss.

    Or he went bankrupt somehow. I still got shitloads of dirty industry over there and some of them are even vacant. Might explain the loss of jobs but vacant? Is the rise of education affecting this or is it something else entirely?

    Only way I know how to get I-D vacant is to burden it with some ridiculous amount of taxes, like 30%.

    So, it might be taxes then? I tried lowering it a bit earlier but no dice. 6% did get a few more people to move in and build a few more factories but that's it.

    Yeah I was thinking of getting Shar-teel because I've never had her in my party before. I'm basically trying to give a chance to all these NPCs that I totally ignored during all my previous playthroughs. Maybe I'll pick up Yeslick too.
