You make a good point. Ecco definitely nails atmospheric feelings, especially for its time. There's some tranquil and pleasant areas to roam, and then there are others that are very tense and uneasy. Zipping around the wide open zones can be a blast on its own.

Hey, there.
I have, the game is insanely frustrating and did not age well.
Arena will screw you hard if you're not prepared.

Managed to clear one of the last story dungeons, but a monster hit me with a disease.
If you want to leave the dungeon, you have a chance to get killed by the disease while traveling.
I didn't bring any Cure Disease potions with me, so I was basically stuck cause I died every time.
I had to keep killing monsters in the dungeon, hoping some enemy would drop a Cure Disease potion. I was this close to just uninstalling the game.
Eventually, a Vampire managed to drop a potion of Cure Disease.
After that, I basically rushed through the game with lots of potions, following a guide and using a weapon that has the Pass Wall ability.

I just wanted to experience TES from the very beginning. Maybe one day I'll play Daggerfall, heard great things about it.

To be technical, Japan is a constitutional monarchy, with the Emperor serving as head-of-state but the Prime Minister of the Diet being the leader of the government. I changed the title to the correct "State of Japan"; I just use it to differ the country from the Empire of Japan that existed until the new government was formed by the 1947 constitution. I feel like technothrillers like Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory ignore the current alliance for delusions that Japan would turn into an empire again.

[Link] All the info you need is at that page on Romhacking. There's also a modernization one that attempts to streamline the game and make it more like PSIV, with increased money and EXP amongst other things. I chose the improvement because I still wanted a honest vanilla experience, just tweaked to iron out problems.

Yup, I have the GOG version so it just worked. I imagine they used DOSbox but not really sure.

Max Payne 3 is set in Sao Paulo, though a fictional version. There's a football club whose name (Galatians) seems to be a reference to a real team, Corinthians. Settings range from high-rise opulence to favela slums.

From what I remember, Brood War's campaign was absolutely brutal at the end. I never used cheats, but I understand those that do.

Also, System Shock is a classic that inspired many after it... but it's not the most approachable of games.

Edit: On Heart of the Swarm, from what I understand, a lot less emphasis was put on the story campaign for the first expansion. I think Blizzard is taking a Call of Duty approach to the series - the campaign is there, but it's short because they know a lot of people are just there for the multiplayer.

I'm actually a big fan of Yahtzee Crowshaw's other works and I'm a late comer to his indie games like 7 Days a Skeptic in the Chzo Mythos. It's well done for what it is, though I think there's inherent weaknesses in the graphic adventure model that are hard to get around.

Thanks! It's one of my favorites, too, and it's long been a dream of mine to have my work featured there. Between that and the interview with Good Games Writing, I feel like I'm starting to earn some real geek cred.

I did the same thing before ACIII came out. Beat ACs 1, II, Brotherhood, and Revelations in the space of about a month. Then I never ended up getting III, partly out of laziness, partly because my brother got me Arkham City for Christmas and I found the game that Assassin's Creed was trying to be. Then I finally got ACIII this summer, and, well... let's just say it's one of the few games I couldn't even be bothered to give a mercy three-star rating to (I give most games at least a three-star rating on a "at least you tried" basis. My two-star ratings are reserved for "I can tell you weren't even trying". And one-star games are for games that actually wasted my time and money).

I do want to replay it to see if I misjudged it, though, since I enjoyed the hell out of IV, and aside from the Pirate bits I couldn't really see anything different from ACIII, except that I took my time to do all the side stuff in IV and I rushed through the story of III. I want to see if that makes a difference.
