    I don't think I've had any CTDs in 176 hours of New Vegas.

    and i am fully prepared to take basilisks down. have potions and scrolls.

    Greater Doppelgangers are indeed pain. very strong and hit like a truck. still managed to lure one by one which made the fate much easier.


    i wonder how close i am to the level cap. My main is level nine wizard.

    200+ and the only times I've had a CTD were my fault (conflicting mods, drivers, etc).

    Traps bug me the most in the Infinity Engine games as they're just so detrimental to the pace of the game. I'm okay with them in BG2 only because I've played that game so many times I get a shiver in my spine when a screen looks familiar.

    If you're using Trilogy then there is no level cap, beyond most things in BG1 not providing enough XP to get the amounts needed to go from lvl 8->9 (for most classes) anyway. BG1 doesn't throw 5000XP monsters at you right from the start like BG2 does.

    Hmm I took a look at Bioware's release list, there was no mention of anything besides DA3.

    my wizard main and dynheir are level nine wizards. but they need almost double of xp what they have now to get to level ten. I might get Imoen to level nine as well (so she would be able to use her five level spell) if there is no cap on BGT...
    won't I be overpowered for BG2 then?

    I think I understand the Bioshock backlash now, to a point. For a game which has such excellent narrative qualities-subtext, world, voice acting, concept, general appreciation of what it is trying to do, both in meta terms and in game-it marrs and breaks them by relying on some of the most hackneyed game cliches-essential immortality, choices essentially reduant, overpowered and over supplied protagonist, non-plot characters inhabtiants of a shooting gallery.

    It's still a very good game, better than many this past five years and many before, but it remains an ambitious but flawed orthodox game. There was enough substance and intelligence behind it to ensure that with proper execution it could have been spectacular and a real advancing of the medium. But while it's natural to mourn that it didn't evolve from that, it dosen't make it the most terrible thing in the world or anything remotley like it. So I sort of don't understand the backlash too. I'm very glad I bought and played it, and look forward to playing 2 after a few lighter games.

    Is that Bioware though? Or just a studio branded as Bioware?

    I mean, they like to say that TOR is Bioware's MMO, but really, 90% of it was the Warhammer Online guys.

    I feel Bioware the brand and Bioware the people-who-make-the-rpgs-I-like have become quite distinct.

    Finished Analogue: A Hate Story.

    It was... wow. I didn't expect to enjoy it this much, but the story and writing really blew me over (not like the "game" has much more than story and writing to begin with, but still).

    Yeah? You liked the writing? I liked Analogue a lot too, but every character sounded like a teenage girl to me. It was kind of a problem. The story (and, even more, the slow unveiling of it) was enjoyable, though.

    If by every character you mean the AIs, well, it's something that fits Hyun-Ae for horribly spoilerrific reasons, but Mute... meh. As for the actual family members depicted in the logs, I felt they were quite well fleshed out despite having absolutely zero interaction with them.

    I was playing skyrim, then GTA 4, and now Batman: AC for a second play through. Both recent Batman games are so much fun. I will return to Skyrim and GTA 4 before long I am sure. I got some great gameplay mods for skyrim that really improve things.

    I can only be deeply envious of your incredible good fortune, I've never gotten performance like that out of any Bethesda RPG. I bet when you hit "exit" the game actually closes, too, instead of requiring you to go to task manager to shut it down.

    I suppose, to clarify, I should say I don't get CTD's so much as hard freezes, but it amounts to the same thing. Fortunately, they've been few and far between this time, but I consider 1 hard crash per 10 hours amazing performance for a game like this.

    Anyway, usual technical kinks aside I'm having a great time with FONV.

    I always had this problem, too. Apart from that, I barely remeber any CTD or freezes. I'm sure I had a couple, but nothing in a remarkable scale.

    I remenber that I had a lot of trouble installing the DLC for Fallout 3, but I blame GFWL for that, not Bethesda.
