I'm confused, I thought I knew NwN2 quite well (not as well as scottg, but then again, who does?), but I don't know what a trade bar is. I know this does nothing to clear your issue, but I'm curious, what's a trade bar?

That's exactly what weapon finesse does. It's not the greatest feat, no, unless you are going for a dex build, which, all things considered, aren't exactly top dogs. You're probably better off increasing STR and putting on bigger armor, unless you're going for a arcane caster, since THAT doesn't get...

An interesting article I found on the Internet

Here's the article: http://tevisthompson.com/on-videogame-reviews/ This is a very interesting position on Bioshock: Infinite, and a broader reflection on the role of critical discourse and reviews in the videogame industry. More interestingly, to me, it also touches on themes of ideology and politic...

Money is an issue in HotU. Buying things is expensive. I doubt you can make 1 keen, max electrical damage, +10 enhancement weapon let alone 2. Really? Weird. I always have enough money to enchant, at least, two weapons, possibly three. I go acid damage, keen, +10. I usually swap the acid damage for...

Dual wield in HotU has the problem that you have to pay enchants to two weapons. pay Money, however, like in most RPG's is no object. Don't use XP for something you can get with money is kind of a golden rule of RPG-playing, isn't it? And that's usually because you'll have tons more than enough mon...

(...) 27 DD 15: devestating critical (...) devestating critical !!!. Now, scottg could probably correct me on this, but my thinking is that, if you're going the dev crit route, a scimitar (or kukri, but scimitar is cheaper + more damaging), is the optimal weapon choice. Admittedly, dual-wield would...

Katana. I'm curious, why? They all have the same base damage (1-10, 5,5 average), the same critical damage bonus (19-20/x2 in bastard sword and katana comes to 1,10 damage multiplier over time, same as x3 for the dwarven waraxe). I understand one may prefer more frequent criticals over more damagin...

I restarted Skyrim, played less than 20 hours, and I'm already fed up again with it. It's so terribly bland, boring & shallow. It's pretty, and it's vast, I'll give it that. But all the vastness in the world isn't worth anything if it isn't filled. I just finished The Witcher 2 for the second time ...

Thanks for the link, but it would break immersion for me, i.e. too much metagaming. It's not that Arcanum is THAT hard. A tech run? A GUN tech run? It's not hard, as in, Wizardry 7 hard, but it ain't easy either. For the record, it's one of the most difficult tasks I've completed in a game. I shoul...

Seems to me like you want the unofficial patch (Basic). No option for telling Heather to stay indoors, as far as I know, but that conflicts with your "no changes" policy, as it is a pretty big change right there. The True Patch... Well, it works, and gets things done, but, in my experience, is a bit...

Fighter 4 should be enough for epic weapon spec, BUT you need to take it at a fighter level. You can, however, take both weapon spec (as a general feat), and EWS (as a fighter feat) if you take fighter 4 at a level where you'd get a general feat, like, for instance 36 (although I don't really recomm...

On a cursory overview, I don't think you can take EWS on a Dwarven Defender level, only on fighter or (which is probably a bug) CoT levels, so you'd have to switch epic toughness and EWS. Other than that, I don't see so many levels in cleric as a good choice, specially if you don't have travel domai...

Are all 3D games a problem, or only ones with certain camera types (like over the shoulder or first person perspective)? A lot of newer games (like Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile) are in 3D, but they're presented like 2D games. If it has to be a 2D game, then Diablo 2 might be your best bet. It's o...
