I just spent half an hour trying to kill a Kikimore warrior in the Salamandra camp while overdosed on potions. It was impossible, and it's really shitty that you can only drink three potions before incurring significant debuffs. Drinking a fourth is apparently enough to kill you in minutes. I decided it wasn't worth the effort.
Also, do bombs actually do anything in the Witcher 1? I've used some Samum bombs while being attacked by a monster, and Geralt apparently always drops them at his feet like a smoke bomb, and it just makes a screaming noise without doing much else.

Those Kikimore are ridiculous. Giant hunks of...ridiculous. Seem to be immune to stun and knockdown (but do get knockbacked) and fire doesn't seem to do too much against them. I was in the unfortunate position earlier of being at a camp and then waking up with two on me, along with some of the smaller ones. Sufficed to say, I died. That's what actually prompted that last message.
And I know people say W2 is a better game in every way, but if it's making people want to go back to W1 after, I don't want to go from a better game then to a worse one. I'll chug along though, I'm sure.

Someone here tried Sword of the Stars : The Pit ? I'm kinda interested in it since there isn't many roguelike(-like) on Steam. I know there's a demo but I'm more interested in how's the game in the long run, is there a lot of new items to keep the game entertaining, that kind of stuff.
I only played BoI, FTL and Dungeons of Dredmor as far as roguelike(-like) goes and I never managed to finish DoD (yes, I suck that much, but I gotta say for my defence I try to avoid OP builds).

My memories of the Witcher 1 are shrouded in anticipation for the second game, due to which I forced myself to play through the first one. They're mostly positive memories, but I did have to use a walkthrough quite a lot. I guess the game did have some sort of replayability once, but these days anyone can be glad if they crossed it off their backlog ;)

Loved the game though, although it would have been nice if it were a bit harder.

My first time on Brogue, today. Seems like it's gonna be a short game with just 26 levels but I might be wrong, especially when it comes to rogue-likes. Anything I should know about it?Art blog here.

I started a chaotic evil playthrough of Planescape: Torment today and have had to briefly walk away from my PC twice already.

I'm on hard, using potions liberally (ie. as and when needed). I'm also completing every side quest I come across. I couldn't find any way of lowering the difficulty manually, but I did find a mod that allowed you to buy potions that changed the difficulty. Even though they're sold by every merchant, unfortunately for me I've, as far as I'm aware, spoken to all the ones available at the moment. If someone has another way, I wouldn't mind knowing.

Some more Might & Magic 8. My party consists now of Lady Anthile, a vampire (kind of a paladin, it's weird), a necromancer (basically just a normal mage), a cleric and a minotaur (also kind of a paladin, it's even weirder). Having solved "the dire wolf problem" which involved killing literally dozens of wolves in what took me about an in-game month of hit and run because they would attack me with about 10-15 at a time and all of them capable of killing my weaker characters in 2-3 hits. Oh, and that was before going into the actual dire wolf dungeon. It's one of the most difficult early quests in any game I have ever played.
Well, it gets a bit easier afterwards and I was able to buy some proper gear and training. The quest after that is a bit difficult to describe in mere words. I was told to clear out a nearby smuggler cave but I wasn't quite prepared for what followed...

Love the minotaur's face on the second shot. He looks so happy.

Anyway, now that I've gotten into the Trade Quarter I decided to upgrade my silver sword, which went unmodified for the entirety of chapter 1 and 2 because I didn't realise I needed special runes for them. Two blue runes, one red. Hopefully that'll make some difference.

And that's Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy done!
Played it back in the day, and wanted to relive it. Got a taste for it when me and my fiancée started watching all the Star Wars movies together a couple of weeks back.
The lightsabre in that game is fantastic, but there are really too many lightsabre duels in the end game.
Now, maybe time to return to The Witcher or try Miasmata...

I don't remember having much trouble with anything in Witcher 1. Are you reading all the notes and stuff about the monsters? They help.
And that is not to say I'm the überplayer and you suck, I pretty much got destroyed on the first fight when I tried to play Witcher 2 on normal.

Got involved as an arbiter between two Brahmin Farmers having a beef (snarf) in New Vegas, both of whom are wearing more or less the same clothes and are voiced by the same person doing the same accent which also happens to be the voice of Duncan from Dragon Age. It's Immersive stuff.
