[06:47:57] <wjp> hi

[07:59:01] <wjp> hi
[08:00:14] <Darke> Greetings. *bow*
[08:00:31] --> SB-X has joined #exult
[08:00:37] <Darke> Hi.
[08:00:39] <SB-X> hello
[08:02:01] <wjp> hi
[08:02:40] <SB-X> wjp are you playing baldurs gate?
[08:03:03] * wjp nods; bg2 expansion
[08:03:17] <SB-X> oh
[08:03:28] * SB-X have never played baldurs gate
[08:03:38] <SB-X> any version :)
[08:06:12] * Darke tried to play a friends copy of BG1, but it kept dying under Win2k at the time. He's got the collector's edition of BG2, but never really played it vary far. IMO, it's pretty, but it's got all the mental stimulation of TV. *grin*
[08:06:39] <wjp> :-)
[08:06:51] <wjp> some of the harder fights do require some thinking, though :-)
[08:08:12] <Darke> For me it went something like: *hackhackhackslash* *read monologue* *hackslashhack* *'nother monolgue* *flip a coin to decide whether to do X or Y first* *hackslashslashhack* *monologue*
[08:08:27] <wjp> hm, that sounds about right, yes :-)
[08:08:34] * Darke snickers.
[08:08:38] <wjp> (90% of the time, anyway)
[08:09:07] <Darke> Yeah. The other 10% of the time is spent in '_really_ long monolgue' and 'reloading saves'. *innocentgrin*
[08:09:18] <wjp> there's also moments of: *hackhackhackslash* *die* *reload* *hackhackhackslash* *die* *reload* ...
[08:09:40] * Darke giggles. Sounds about right. *grin*
[08:09:53] <wjp> followed by *think up tactic* *hackhackhackslash* *die* *reload* *improve tactic* *hackhackhackslash* *read monologue*
[08:12:05] <wjp> although said tactic usually involves either a) finding a way to rest&heal in mid-battle b) finding the right way to kill off those pesky high-level mages before they can cast those pesky high-level spells
[08:12:56] * Darke nodnods. Sounds just like the old Gold Box games, except with too much eye-candy. *grin*
[08:15:14] <SB-X> it sounds more complicated than crusader, which im still playing
[08:15:41] <SB-X> which isnt an rpg of course
[08:16:38] <SB-X> which i hope will somehow get supported by pentagram
[08:16:52] <Darke> It's your standard CRPG game. *grin* Nothing really fancy at all.
[08:19:47] <SB-X> crusader goes *start on telepad* *kill guards* *find weapons* *kill guards* *find keycard* *kill guards* *blow stuff up* *open doors* *kill guards* *kill robots* *kill guards* *blow stuff up* *find keycard* *kill guards* *blow stuff up* *blow stuff up* *blow stuff up* *blow stuff up* *open door* *kill guards* *plant bomb* *exit mission* *get debriefed and briefed* *repeat*
