The game was a bit odd in that all areas were actually connected, weren't them? I mean, I seem to remember that Rynn and Arokh never made a travel off-screen. And so, very little of the world is shown. There are those areas at the start of the game, with the snowy cannyons, then the tele-transporter...

Topic: compare crush bo and fire bo ?
Replies: 1
Views: 2019

If I recall correctly, Crush Bo is longer, more damaging and its supermove is faster. The only good thing about the Fire Bo is that the supermove does good damage, but the charge-up animation is slooow. I don't recall the exact numbers, so I'm not even sure that the supermove of the Fire Bo deals mo...

The easiest way to deal with torch shadows would be to make the torch only cast the shadows from other lights and not its own. In the case of torches fixed to walls it would probably be easy to put an invisible smaller object or do a custom shadow map for thap place. An empty-hand-filler object woul...

That's really hard to do, and I don't mean just from a technical point of view. Such changes would require lots of gameplay finesse from the developers. There was something the the makers of Blade did quite well: noticing the weak aspects of the combat engine and minimizing them the simple way. As y...

When I’ve played with Sargon, the move of the elf sword, The Dream, has been the move impressing me the most of hims. A quick 3-hitter with good range, width and damage. With Tukaram, I rely on "skills" (I think that was their name) more, and I often found myself using them with the strongest weap...

I also got that problem from time to time. Tilting the camera helped a bit, but when it happens you'd better desist and try again a different time.

Tabriz is a fort.

The thing is that in real life you can look around while walking, even if your legs are not strictly "strafing". Going back to videogames, this is useful for two things: maneuvering around obstacles while keeping your view on the general direction, or just looking around without having to change the...

Like gadunz, I miss the strafe outside combat.

I guess that they thought that strafing and lock-on were redundant and chose the latter.

This is not a combat video, but it's fun. And it surprised me as I didn't think that the physics of the game would pull this off so well.

In Gladiator, Zoe does a lot of whirlwind attacks and she doesn’t try to zone you; she’s quite easy, and so is Tukaram, although he’s quite scary when he comes swinging his sword at you. Naglfar and Sargon are much harder, but with Zoe you can escape and break the shields from her maximum rang...

Gadunz, each one has his own ideas of how to play the game. I don't get how changing the stats of a sword destroys the spirit of the game any more than putting drain code on weapons that were not intended for it. You enjoy your set up and it's nice that you want to share, but not everybody has to pl...
