Laugh out load

There's like automatic insurance, I think. I'll be back on it soon, then I'll know. Of course it would help if I didn't suck. Big Grin

RE: What are you playing?
I just dabbled in S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl.

To say the game has me vexed may be an understatement... I understand the game design decision to not give the player a powerful weapon from the start, but being given something would have been nice. You know, a gun that can compete with the enemies in the immediate area maybe?
Well, to be fair, I did get this shitty little pistol that seems to do virtually no damage, regardless of where I shoot. So technically it is a something.

When I've a few more hours in I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. If I can get past the damn crouching control...

Is there anyone that used to play Starport Galactic Empire? I used to be addicted to it years ago, before it got ruined.

Plus not everyone has a ton of time to pump into a game to do several playthroughs to try out all the different styles.

In most RPGs you pick a class anyway so you're already locked in that way and allowing respec just lets you play that class differently.

I dunno for Dark Souls. I'm probably bias though, I like to be able to change it up occasionally. Stops things getting stale.
I get the convenience of it totally. It just takes away from the experience of building a character. You are correct in that people will just google the best builds. This game would be ideal in a pre-internet era. I just don't think games need to be quite *that* convenient. Imagine if in skyrim/oblivion if they let you take your archery points and push them into 2 handed (I guess the prestige type system allows you to reallocate skill points, but at least you have to earn it by maxing out a skill)...I mean does it make any sense? In final fantasy if they let you move your health down and your damage up? It's just...too easy IMO. I think the feeling of permanence when you make a leveling choice should mean something. Like, "hey I'm customizing/building this character to match my vision."

But alas, everybody is different. That's just my perspective.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Sure I get that, but there is also the option that you yourself don't have to respec...
