I did have and started playing Torment but ultimately couldn't get used to how esoteric and weird it was so I don't think I ever finished it. It was an aweful lot of text reading as well and I couldn't quite get into such odd characters as Morte the talking skull. I was younger then so perhaps I'll give it one more try if it will still actually run on my current PC. Naturally then I'll look into the successor as well.
And Julia it's like I'm looking at a female clone-I too played the Icewind Dale series though my memory of them has faded significantly. Sounds like you'll be getting back into video games all.
Also, played and finished Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs last week. Anyone heard of it or played it?
I also have not heard of this one. How about an old Naughty Dog (the company that brought you The Last of Us for the PS3) produced game for the Sega Genesis called Rings of Power?
Yep Tox it would have been expensive for Bioware to do that ending for ME3 but this is still the ending I think of when I finished my game. I played through it three times myself and was a total Paragon each time. Darn it though you still couldn't make it with some of the characters you wanted to-lol.
Well playing Torment was actually quite like reading a book Since I was and am into books a lot, maybe that's why I liked it so much.
And the characters can't get any better than PS: T, in my opinion. They are the most original I have ever encountered, if you bother to unveil their background and what binds them to you. Or you could just manipulate them and use them and discard them (Practical One, looking at you )
Amnesia and Amnesia: AMFP are two games based in the same universe, but not direct sequels, by Frictional Games and thechineseroom, respectively. They're horror-adventures and amongst the best I've played lately. Play them right (in the dark and alone) and you won't be forgetting them any time soon Frictional has also made the Penumbra trilogy, also a horror-adventure, although in a different setting (a bunker in Greenland). All exquisite games with wonderful mood, story and made by big Lovecraft fans (just think that Penumbra's protagonist is named Philip H. and the engine that powers all of them is the "HPL Engine" )
I've never heard of Rings of Power and I only own my laptop and a X360 (which has sat on the shelf, unused, since April now) so I can't play Last of Us. When I was little I had a Sega Mega Drive and all I really remember is playing Sonic the Hedgehog and Alex the Kid
Julia, make sure that if you buy Torment, you get all 4 mods too. They're all there on the page with instructions on how to get them working. I've never used them (they increase the resolution for modern computers, fix bugs and add back some content that didn't make it in the game) but I would surely install them were I to play again
