Loren’s Been Thrown into a Dungeon and Forgotten

I made the mistake Saturday of buying Dungeon Siege, a Microsoft game as it turns out, though Microsoft Studios is just one of several names on it, including MacSoft, Gas Powered Games, and Miles.

The game is apparently a cross between Myth and Baldur's Gate, taking the best from both games. My favorite part of the game is the way you gain skills by actually applying them. In other words, you don't choose at the beginning of the game if you want to be a fighter, a mage, or a priest. Rather, you become one of these through practice.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, the game is proving to be absolutely riveting. I've had a hard time pulling myself away from the game to sleep or to shop for groceries.

If you don't hear from me for awhile, it's just because I'm stuck in a dungeon somewhere and can't get out.

  1. Loren,

    Even IF gone..

    ..not forgotten…:-D

    (Stay outtn’em dungeons I hope, mebbe long enough to discuss more poetry…;-)

  2. Yeah, I’m afraid this might be the obssessive-compulsive side.

    As usual, though, I end up as a Druid or Ranger, understandable I guess.

  3. It’s called “Dungeon Seige,” Pascale, It’s one of those Dungeon and Dragons games.

    However, it’s not as bad as Baldur’s Gate, unless you go on line to play, which I’ve always avoided doing.

    I’ve already finished the single player game hardly the worse for wear, though it will probably take me most of a week to get caught up on my sleep.

What do you think?
