Wasteland 2

Postby Kickaha » Wed Oct 22, 2014 4:35 pm

Too many games to play at the moment! Including "Wasteland 2" which was very difficult to persuade to start executing on my Mac. Whenever I tried launching it a message about "Verifying" appeared and that was it.

Some hours of Googling later and I found a magic incantation (xattr –d -r com.apple.quarantine) which did the trick and now Wasteland 2 starts! But should I play that, or Dreamfall Chapters first? Impossible decision!

Dreamfall Chapters takes about 3 hours, Wasteland 2 might take longer :)

Oh, yeah... Wasteland 2 should definitely take a tad longer!

It may take me a little longer with "Dreamfall Chapters" - I'm fighting the controls a little!

But I think I'll be playing "Wasteland 2" into the New Year!

That's what I like about those kinds of games...

I have the same dilemma - backed both of them on Kickstarter and have just taken delivery of my Wasteland 2 in a lovely old-school big box with a proper manual and a cloth map!

Oh, my, Phlebas... what a terrible problem!

Lucky you Phlebas! I could use a cloth map!

I'm enjoying "Wasteland 2" at the moment - game wise it's an old school RPG, nice familiar territory. The writing is good, near the start I had the choice of going to one of two places which needed help. The choice I made meant the other place didn't get help in time - perhaps I could have saved both places . . . don't think so. What I like is how the choice I made gets reflected in the dialogue you get afterwards. That makes the game world feel more alive, not just locations waiting for you to go and clear.

I've heard this one has great graphics to go along with a pretty good story... The reflection of your choices in the dialogue would be a real plus! I've played so many where you wonder if you will ever find out how that choice affects the story.

Just finished "Wasteland 2", and there were a lot of side quests I didn't do so whenever I replay there'll be new stuff to explore.

I did enjoy this one, plusses for me: good writing, game balanced so friendly to less experienced gamers (in some RPGs I get so far then hit unwinnable battles), fun upgrading one's weaponry.

I was waiting to hear what you thought of it... sounds like a winner to me! I may have to add it to my "list." Thanks!

I'm a pushover when it comes to the attractions of casting fireball spells which nuke everything in a large radius, or in "Wasteland 2"'s case letting rip with a rocket propelled grenade!

Two of my favorites also! One of Geralt's spells in The Witcher is Igni and there is nothing like a fireball spell to dispense with monstors! My favorite weapon in Vampire Redemption was the RPG... BAM!

I'd love to start a "coolest weapons" in a game thread, but I don't think there are enough of us down here... Coolest weapons ever are in Prey.
