    No, I assumed people would go "Oh right, Ghost," since vsosve's post was an example of the exact reasoning for why it kept getting delayed and eventually scrapped.

    I assumed incorrectly.

    Nevermind I see what you're getting at finally.

    Usually when people do *cough company name cough* they mean that suchandsuch company was the one doing the bad thing. Not the one that stepped in and said stop wasting money.

    Seeing as the topic before hand was game companies releasing buggy shit because they dick around and or get rushed out the door by producers, yes, just throwing a company's name out there doesn't let anyone know you're talking about one title they farmed out to a separate company.

    I should probably stop sharing these random thoughts with the forum so much.

    Sometimes I really can't tell what will or won't make immediate sense to most people.

    I get confused by things people say sometimes, and then othertimes I make apparently-complex connections instantaneously and don't realize it requires explaining.

    And since I don't have any talents at segwaying, the Hotel was the scariest thing I've ever played. I thought the Shalebridge Cradle (Thief 3) was pretty fucked up, but that stupid hotel almost made me fall out of my chair.

    Playing the hotel level in a hotel seems like a bad idea.

    So, I noticed this awhile ago, and I'm pretty sure it's in the original game too, the locked door in the Venture tower. Behind the elevators on the right, but you can't ever open it. I can't seem to get the console to work, so if anyone wants to noclip through it, is there any purpose to it?

    Trying to play this again, but I doubt I will ever finish it. It seems that sadly I don't really like the story, the combat or the characters. Getting killed ten times in a row by the celerity and shotgun using plague lord did not help matters. There is nothing bad about this game, but it just feels... mediocre.

    I think I might buy this game today. My paycheck went through so I finally have some extra cash to spend on things like games. I was thinking this, and maybe The Witcher?

    I was a huge Fallout 1/2 fan, and subsequently a huge Arcanum fan...even if I hit a game-ending bug 40 hours into my first playthrough. (The patch erased your saves, and I was a good dozen hours or so in when the patch hit)

    Does Arcanum still stand up? I might pick it up if it's available for download somewhere.

    I played Fallout but I've never played Baldur's Gate. I figure by this point it'll just be annoying.

    I ask, because for someone who didn't play those RPG's, they'd probably sit down and run Arcanum for the first time and think, "Holy shit, what is this ugly thing?"

    But if you can get past that, or are a fan of the other games I mentioned, you'll love Arcanum. It's an epic game, western RPG style to the core.

    Also, awesome loot/skill/tech tree system

    I found BG2 less annoying than NWN2 to play. Not that I finished either of them.
    I think I got pissy with BG2 and never finished it because I was playing through it with my brother each controlling 3 characters and then we sort of stopped playing and I didn't want to bother getting back to where I was.

    Nope. It's a shame you don't like it, it's one of the best RPGs ever made.

    And the graphics aren't pretty, but they're perfectly adequate. Besides, the game's conventions are rock solid...similar to how I can still load up X-com and have a blast to this day.

    I don't know why I stopped playing Arcanum. It was around the same time I was playing Fallout 1/2 but I just couldn't get into it. I look back and think that I probably should. I'll see if my brother's friend still has his copy.

    Nope, but that would be a good deal of fun if updated for modern technology.

    So what do you think? Going to give it a go?

    You can't argue with loot as fun as this
