Anybody else playing FATE at the mo?
.
Here is what my character looks like at this time, I am down to level 15 in the dungeon, and having oodles of fun. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Yup still play Fate, when me PW is down, and knowing how much fun you are having Spick here's mine <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

btw Spick I notice that you are still running Version 1.2 go to the website and download the patch version 1.21 (which is prolly why my patch wouldn't work) <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin1.gif" alt="" />
Posted By: Ubereil Re: FATE - 08/11/05 04:35 PM
I acually found it kind of boring. What diablo has that Fate doesn't is special moves IE you just don't stand there and beat your opponents on the head with a cudgel, you can acually kill them with a little more fliar than that.

To me Ube it's just a bit of light relief every now and then when i want to get away from the riggers of the likes of KOTOR2.A bit of hack and slash relaxation so to speak <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" />, mind you, it is starting to get rather challenging now down on level 16.
Mea I see what you mean !!...I was sure I had 1.21 installed,is it still worth me patching do you think?

This game is amazing. The only thing I don't like about it is that is is exactly like Diablo 1. You work your way down through a dungeon to get to lower levels. I like a RPG to be more like Diablo 2 where you can go to different parts of the area. The grapics on this game are greatly superior then those of Diablo 1 and 2. I wish that the camera view could be rotated like in Fable: The Lost Chapters. Don't have any screenshot of my character yet, but I will post one soon enough. That is once I get some cool looking equipment on me. I am still quite new to this game. Overall, I give this game an 8 out of 10. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif" alt="" />

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Diablo 2 is NOT an RPG. It is an action-RPG (which despite the name has allmost nothing to do with RPG's), or as my brother would call it, a platform.

But isn't a 3rd person game where you only control one person called an RPG. Even though it may not have a lot of talking situations to make it boring, it is still an RPG. Even if it is an action RPG, it is still an RPG. You kill things and pick up items to trade or sell.

RPG stands for Role-Playing game (or acually computer role-playing game, but you usually neglect the c), and a role-playing game is about experienceing a story and roleplaying. You neither experience a story nor roleplay in D2 => it's not a RPG. As simple as that.

And as a said, despite the name action-RPG's doesn't really have much with RPG's to do.

Hmm I think so with about 3500 lvls of the dungeon to go <no I aint Kidding, a friend of mine is thus far at lvl 115> it would be worthwile the download <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin1.gif" alt="" />

I'm onto level 17 now, how r u doing, finding the beasties getting tougher?
I spent an hour fishing on level 16 last night but all the GOOD clobber i get is in advance of my present character..Doh!
Posted By: SPIKENOX07 Re: FATE - 10/11/05 07:37 AM
i only had the demo. now i need to get the full version.
Posted By: MeaCulpa Re: FATE - 10/11/05 06:29 PM
hmm Spick I dunno on which difficulty you are playing butm things get wayyyy better on medium and out friggin standing on hard, but on avarage I found that you can go to dungeon lvl X .75 your charcter lvl I.E. if you are lvl 10 you can survive on lvl 17, so keep going down keep doing those quest and SAVE those Gems man they are worth it, however do use them cause if you keep them too long t6hey will have hardly any effect on the more difficult creatures, and trust me you will find more and better ones <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

You don't have much experience with RPGs and C-RPGs, do you? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

But actually Diablo (1 and 2) ARE RPGs... there is a story, there is character development. They are just very bad RPGs (and nice action games). <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/exclamation.gif" alt="" />

Actually that money comes from finding 2 Red Faberge Eggs from the Deep Delver (v.90) mod. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> This is also why I have a phoenix as my pet. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" />

The demo will allow you to go to lvl3 of the dungeon and also reach lvl 6 for character dev. The full game has something 2,147,483,647 with the DeepDelver mod installed (you will need to use cheats to get down that far otherwise it will take an estmated 2 generations of contin uous play to get down that far) <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/alien.gif" alt="" />

Actually the game will crash hard if you try to go past level 2,147,483,647. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" /> If you really want to try the DeepDelver, you will need to get the Mod Manager and you may want to get Win-mode mode (very handy as it will allow you to close FATE if it locks up without resetting the system). <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif" alt="" />
Posted By: Talithan Re: FATE - 08/09/06 10:53 PM
Also for anyone who plays, get the silly mod. It gives you funny Tips, Quests, and Names. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin1.gif" alt="" />

Some Tips:

* [color:"yellow"] Gol'Goth [/color] the Mangler is [color:"yellow"] not [/color]from US History.

* Defined: Eat - Sitting at a table and consuming a meal...not dribbling crumbs from a donut while you wipe out the next level.

* [color:"yellow"] Sleep [/color] is imperative...otherwise you will start seeing [color:"yellow"] nonexistant monsters [/color] and taking [color:"yellow"] ridiculous chances [/color] with Rikko.

* Pay attention to your spouse or parents. If [color:"yellow"] neglected [/color] too long they might [color:"yellow"] delete the game [/color] when you aren't looking!

Some Quests: (from the actual quests file)

* A \b<basemonster>\b called \b<monster>\b attacked a shipment of whoopie cushions coming to our gift shop, and \bhijacked\b a valuable \b<item>\b from the merchandise! The newbies chased it as far as \blevel <levelsingular>\b. If you return it to me, I will help you write that nasty report you've been putting off...

* Oh, no! There's \banother missing item!\b I went fishing with Bremen and when we got back, Bremen noticed my \b<item>\b was gone.He asked if I'd sold it, because it is a pretty expensive one, and the payments to keep it \binsured\b are just killing me! But no, I hadn't sold it. I've called the insurance company, but they won't replace it until \bsomeone\b goes to check for it on \blevel <levelsingular>\b. If you can find it, my insurance carrier will pay you a reward....

* My \bcoworkers and I\b were on \blevel <levelsingular>\b during a team cohesiveness buiding exercise when \b<monster>\b the \b<basemonster>\b with his mob of \b<minion>s\b invaded our camp.We didn't mind the interruption, but none of us will get our \bbonus\b if we don't finish this! Please \bliquidate this mob\b so my coworkers and I can finish this nonsense. We will pay you with office supplies....

Not sure, web site says that all contact must be in english and the price quoted is $19.99 US, they will deliver internationally and they mention that cc/bank should do conversion of funds. Unfortunately I did not see anything about COD orders.

seriously, it sounds like a fun game. a friend told me about it a while back, but i never did get it or even download the demo to try. since you guys have brought it to my attention again, i might actually follow through this time at least to try the demo. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

True: whacking at stuff is fun but only for a while if there's no world to explore, no music to suit the mood.

After that, I usually get very bored and won't play any longer.
