Re: I just bought MM8 from GOG - any advice?

If you're worried about making MM8 too easy, I also recommend not using Cauri Blackthorne. Getting a L50 Dark Elf as early as that makes many portions of the game trivial.

Re: Miracle Warriors

It was also one of the first games where I learned to exploit -- using a Sacred Nut when you had your max of 9 would allow you to get 3 more for a total of 11. :)

Re: Miracle Warriors

My biggest problem with the game was trying to figure which town was actually "Medi's Town" so I could follow the directions to the hidden monuments. :)

I see. If that's the definition you're working with, what you say makes sense; it amounts to "the brain, like the rest of the body, tends to deteriorate with age."

Re: MM7 2 member party

This is why rogues are so potent in late game, because dmg boost+ reduced recovery rate makes them killing machines. I really wonder why people insist rogue is weak class in late game, they hit as hard as knights. I don't call Rogues weak, but the difference between them and Knights is durability. ...

Re: HoMM III on Twitch

It's something I learned with the Civ series -- there are people out there who actually *enjoy* excruciating detail and planning their games out on spreadsheets.

I don't count myself among their number, but I can accept their existence. :)

Re: MM6 vs. MM7 vs. MM8: My review (May Contain Spoilers)

I agree that plain size doesn't mean anything, but MM6 wasn't like that. The dungeons were much more rich and unique. On the contrary, MM7's huge dungeons were redundant. They weren't as unique, they just felt like big spaces with a lot of enemies. Especially the tunnels feels exactly like that. Th...

Re: MM6 vs. MM7 vs. MM8: My review (May Contain Spoilers)

I would note that size does not automatically equal a positive for me. MM6 is big, it's true -- but the size of many of its dungeons gets in the way of the game, for me. Once you've established your ability to clear a room of monster X, having to clear out another 500 rooms of the same is somewhat d...

Re: Ex-Ubisoft Employee Exposes Ubisoft

Reading this makes me decide to stop making fun of Limbic. It's not fair to them. The real culprit is Ubisoft. Just to expand -- That's the case for pretty much every product. The people involved in actually *making* it tend to be decent. It's the people in charge of profiting off of forcing other ...

Re: M&M6 install problems, please help!

In my case, when installing off the disks, it can take up to 10 minutes for the installer to actually start. I'm not sure why that is. How long have you waited before giving up?

I wouldn't blame age so much as how badly the 3do experience burned him out; there are some things you just don't recover from.

Re: MM7 Portraits Retouching

This is lovely work.

On a related note, how are your audio editing skills? If one could replace "It's just a cut, but I need it fixed!" with some agonized scream of absolute despair, I think I'd be a happy man. :)

Re: mm7) Plate vs dodging vs unarmed GM effect

I have seen my Monk dodge on the Lincoln. I'm more inclined to regard halved damage as more important; there are spells that cause physical damage, against which AC does nothing. And one of the problems that a lot of games run into is that they design monsters to be able to hit high AC, thus invalid...

That's how I started MMX.

And why I restarted, since all the difficulties Avonu mentioned are not something I could deal with as a beginner. :)
