Two new games at GOG:

 

Vampire: The Masquerade: Redemption and Dark Fall 2: Lights Out. Never played neither.

Redemption get's boring after a while, and the endboss is hard.

 

I should know, I cheated all my stats to max, cutting exploration/grinding in half and was still bored. :p

 

Still, good game. Somewhat Diablo like.

Pity, both suck.

 

Redemption is broken halfway through when you get a sword that seems to insta kill everything. Not to mention grindy gameplay... Its plot is okay and there's a few interesting subplots, but I wouldn't play it again for anything.

 

Drakfall was an average adventure if I remember correctly.

Dirty, filthy lies. Cover your ears, Boo!

 

Redemption offered a fantastic V:tM experience with a actual coterie (and an interesting one at that). It also was one of the first MP storyteller RPGs out there. Even before NWN.

 

More importantly, the transition from Middle Age Prague/Vienna to Modern Age London was one of the most memorable moments in RPGs!

Yeah, I was expecting more GK.

 

Well I got Beyond Good & Evil to work flawlessly after some struggle. I just started it but I kinda like it already.

Redemption was neat for its time, but the best parts of it have been taken by other games and done incredibly better.

VtM: Redemption is probably the only game I've bought and but in the trash bin because I was ashamed of owning it. It is a waste of time, don't play it. Although it's been many years now, I still remember the dungeons were incredibly boring and repetitive.

I own VTM, I can see its merits but I could never get far - at the time it had absolutely horrible performance, the combat felt really clunky and it really felt like I had to do a lot of work to see the good dialogue and story.

 

So no recommendations for the other adventure game? I shouldn't get it? :blink:

I absolutely loved VtM:Bloodlines. Combat was great fun, what are you guys smoking? Flamethrowers, claws, swords, pistols, magic, stealth...

 

Maybe you guys didn't play the Brujah or Tremere? Those are the most fun classes because of their wide skill sets. Oh, and Malkavian.

Boy, Bloodlines is one of my favorites, totally different experience compared to Redemption.

 

But yeah, you need the big fan patch to make it stable-ish.

Phantasmagoria and a Space Quest pack are out. Might pick up both when I get around to it.

Just Space Quest 4-6? That's a shame, I'd really like to see the VGA version of 1.

Is Total Annihilation there? I'd buy that.

Phantasmagoria, anyone know bout it?

 

TA is not there last time I checked.

 

I's a horror adventure game that got a reputation for having some explicit scenes. It's really more of a cult classic than a truly good game. But I think a lot of people will find it 90's-kitchy and it that is perhaps today something that makes the game more enjoyable.
