Time for some bayou arson.

This level presented numerous challenges because of my pacifist rules:

* Tied up thugs sink in the swampy areas and they die, so I had to make sure to move all bodies to solid ground.

* I had to get all tied up thugs off the river queen before torching it.

* There are quite a few guard dogs in this level and I refuse to knock out a dog because I'm not a heinous disgusting monster.

The desperado difficulty pacifist run remains intact through 11 levels.

Back to N'awlins for the final level of chapter 2.

For whatever reason, I found this mission significantly easier than the previous one in the swamp. I also didn't use a disguise for the first time in a mission where a disguise was available. I suppose if I'm ever crazy enough to try to do the desperado difficulty, pacifist, no disguise run, that's one less mission I have to replay.

I'm on the third and final chapter now. It starts off with the all hope is seemingly lost portion of the story.

It feels like I'm really close to the end of the game.

This was another mission that has a disguise in it and I didn't use it.

What kind of rig do you play that best game in the world, on? I wonder if the sprites would be too speedy on my main rig, now.  One day I'll install DK1 and perhaps finally I will no longer be able to hand grab lvl10 imps effectively.

I can't say for sure, but this felt like the penultimate mission.

I have one of those prepackaged Trident PCs. As I'm not much of a hardware guy, I'll do what Melkathi did and just list stuff from System: Intel Core i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB.

I vaguely recall running into a problem with sprite speed some time in the past, but iirc a visit to Steam forums revealed a quick fix.

I'm sure the ending of this game will surprise nobody, it's a by the numbers revenge story, but I'll spoiler tag this just in case.

As best as I can tell, it's impossible to do the final battle non-lethal. You can take out all the common thugs in the area one by one, if you're careful and clever, but Frank is surrounded by 8 of his lieutenants (leftenants if you are British), and you HAVE TO take all 8 of them out all at the same time. There is only 1 non-lethal attack in the game that can take out multiple targets, Doc's gas flask, but the way the lieutenants are positioned, you can only get 2 of them in the AoE. Even if you somehow figure out how to get 3 with the gas, that's still not enough. You don't have control over Cooper (he's busy with Frank), so if you get 3 with Doc, 1 with Kate, 1 with Isabelle, and 1 with Hector, plus one more due to Isabelle's link ability, that makes 7, which is still 1 short. You need an attack that can take out 4 targets at once, and the only attack that can do that is Hector's shotgun.

What I'm saying is that I'm not counting these kills against my pacifist run, because it's impossible to do the final showdown non-lethal. I have a hard save right at this spot, so if I have an epiphany, I'll go back and do it non-lethal, but I'm fairly convinced it's impossible.

I even got the badge for not killing anyone except mission targets, implying the developers know that non-lethal is impossible in this mission. I also didn't use a disguise in this mission and one was available.

This concludes my successful Desperado Difficulty Pacifist Run of Desperados 3. This will go on my list of greatest stealth gaming achievements, next to my ghost pacifist run of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and just below eliminating an elusive target stealth assassin, suit only in HITMAN.

Not the MVP I would have picked, seeing how my Knight stood in a corner of the map getting the **** beaten out of her by some bandits while the rest of the team cleared up their friends, but she did a lot of healing:

My heroic hobbit guardian Mirabell:

I'm honestly shocked I managed to get this only slightly off-brand spelling of Mirabelle and didn't have to resort to adding a string of numbers.

Mirabell got herself a Bounder Feathered Hat. Look at how stylish it is. Marvel at its refined beauty:

As an aside, does everybody start in The Shire or only Hobbits?

Only Hobbits start in the Shire but you can go to all the starting areas for cheap at the stables in Michel Delving. Men and Man-bears start in Archet in Bree-land, all Elves start in Celondim in Ered Luin, and all dwarves also start in Ered Luin but in the north at Thorin's Hall.

When I start a new character I pretty much always complete all the starting areas before moving on. I'm always amused by how low stakes the Shire is in general.

The Shire is just such a relaxing area to explore. It also breaks the 'kill 10 bears' mold extremely well. I mean, you have to deliver mail while avoiding noisy hobbits, taste test pies, and go on a pub crawl.

The DLC for Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark allows the taming of monsters.

^ You got the true ending. I got the true ending the second time through on my NG+ run, I got the neutral ending first time through. I neither have the testicular fortitude nor the gaming skill to attempt a NG++ run to get the bad ending and 100% the game.
