Whoever wants to control the NPC's controls them. It's no different than single player, there are just two "control rings" instead of one. Whoever selects an NPC and hits the "level up" button controls how they level up. There's a party size limit, though, so someone like Fumarole playing with a large group of humans probably didn't have any. I played through in 2-player co-op, and we were able to carry 2 or 3 NPC's at any given time as I recall.

I've heard "So many years ago today..." about five billion times now, I could kill on those words.

What about Mask of the Betrayer or Storm of Zehir, ever played them?
25-08-2012, 12:22 AM #8184
Neither yet. I'll be playing Mask of Betrayer next, but Storm of Zehir doesn't look like my cup of tea.

I have Zehir and tried to get into it. But without any appreciable story I bounced right off. It felt a bit like Icewind Dale 1 and so I'm sure there is fun to be had, but that engine was killing me. Random encounters where party members would sprint across the map to start shit with some fresh enemies while you were already trying to take a batch on with the rest of your party. And while you could turn AI off this lead to a micro-managing nightmare.
One day, maybe.

To topic: Mostly I'm playing "holy shit it's the beginning of the semester where did all these students come from and what do they want from me!?" with the occasional brief bout of New Vegas to calm the nerves.

To keep this on topic, still playing Darksiders 2. Nearing the end of the first location. I find it hilarious that one of the devs said that you'd probably only find about 3-4 of the 'possessed' (for those unaware, these are weapons you can feed other items in, powering them up with the stats of said items) weapons in the course of the game. I've found around 6 so far. My luck wins out?

I think I'm giving up on Dawn of War 2 again, for the 3rd time... I don't know, the game is not bad or anything but it's just not really involving in any way and playing it feels like doing a chore. So yea... I think it's back to non-RTS games for me.
I also started dabbling in Dota2. I played a handful of matches vs. bots, and boy do I suck. The one great thing about the game is that it's instantly engaging, and action is always right around the corner. I'm definitely gonna keep at it, playing it like this really makes me want to learn the damn thing and start playing against real people. But I'm nowhere near ready for that, nor would I want to inflict my suckyness on others till I at least get comfortable with the game's main systems. Until then it's coop vs. bots for me.
I do have to commend Valve's visual and aural presentation and insane attention to detail. The game is a sight to behold and really feels very polished.

To the earlier comments regarding KOTOR 1, I had been experiencing graphical bugs (models only being half shown in locations where grass was) which if I disabled grass fixed, V-SYNC I've tried switching off which hasn't helped. Switching off movement during combat helped somewhat with the controls freezing up after a fight, though not entirely.
The game loves to alt-tab itself out back to windows randomly whenever movies are playing in-game, often requiring me to have to end the process for the game and start the game again, which is probably the most annoying bug for the game.
Still very much enjoying the game regardless.

Hmm. Well I'm in the settings screen and can't see anything about running the game in windowed mode. How do I do that?
A google search gave me the answer. Nevermind. Hopefully that will fix most of the issues I'm having.

I've started Neverwinter Nights 2, it's autosaving is borked as all hell.

Bah. While all of ya enjoying your Dork Souls on PC with your GfWLs, I'm stuck playing it on the consolebox! Fuck my wallet...
So, this new character I've just started on the game, pure Pyromancer and Dex-build, and enjoying it so far. Love how fucking fast he is in the game. He's surprisingly durable too! He took two full hits from the Taurus Demon while climbing up the stairs and rolling around, slashing hollows like a champ. Felt like a fresh change after rolling two tanks in the game.Art blog here.
Stuffed with pokemon doodles. And arse. Enter at your own risk.

I'm in the middle of a nice big game of Warlock. I'm doing rather well with that. I'm going to actually try to see a 4x game through to the end, which would be almost unheard of for me.
The more I play Warlock the more I like it.

Good for PvP as well.
