I hadn't a clue this was even an RPG. While I don't follow PC gaming all that closely, I've seen many an ad for this in several magazines and watched a few videos over at IGN and I was under the impression this was a FPS ala modern Hexen or something. While most of my gaming is on consoles, I usuall...

I don't know, Avernum 4 and 5 have really refined the style of engine they use to a point that I'm quite happy with them. The basilisk engine looks a little more detailed which is nice, but overall I think Spiderweb's current engine works well for me. Combine that with Spiderweb's ability to craft e...

Historically I think the Spiderweb games gave access to around 25% of the games (at least on the older ones). This was more than enough to get you hooked worse than a crack addict in Columbia.

And I appreciate it, Hell I went out and bought a copy of Galactic Civ II just because they feel the same way. Don't hinder the paying customer, too much DRM lockdown BS going on right now. Look at the Bioshock fiasco. Look at the digital music/video fiasco in mid swing. When as a producer you make ...

I have a question about the graphics, I'm waiting for the Mac version so I haven't played it yet but on the Spiderweb games they ask me if I want to change my resolution or not (most of them are 800x600 games and I have a 1640x1020 or whatever this imac's res is). They simply change my monitor's res...

Just my 2 cents, it seems most RPGs have a hintbook/walkthrough. I'd prefer a spiderweb style hintbook rather than the modern walkthrough. It's an opportunity for the dev to enhance their profit while increasing the enjoyment of a lot of the player base. I really enjoy the Spiderweb hintbooks and th...

Re: Avernum 5

(I know some Mac gamer is chortling about us PC guys having to wait for it... I'll grant him that, all too often the situation is reversed.) Adamantyr *chortle* :) The hint books, usually have a bit of illustration. They mainly contain maps and quest guides, if you get stuck in a quest you can usua...

I'm a HUGE fan of the Spiderweb games as you can see, going back to Exile. I'm slowly wading my way through them again, but I've delved into 5 for the time being, the story is real solid and I was one of the ones that didn't mind the engine change so much. Granted I really did like the old one. A5 d...

Mario called me to let me know that my game is in, so I'll be busy for a while. And Avernum 5 and Mass Effect. I probably won't have time for this for a couple months so it's not so bad anyway.

I played it many moons ago on Apple IIs, and more recently via Gametap (Ultima does work on the Mac build of Gametap). You pretty much have to have the keyboard commands in front of you as well as a pad for note/map taking. I usually doodle a map while taking notes, so I know where I've been. In gen...

I have a 20" Core 2 Imac, a 15" Core Macbook Pro for work (which also sees some portable gaminating). Also smattering of PPC macs floating around, a cube, a tower, a mini.

Wife also has a Core Duo Macbook.
