So, essentially, Dungeon Lords sucks…

…which would handily explain why I found the quote-unquote “Collector’s Edition” on the ten buck stack at Target.  Before you ask, it was right next to Sid Meier’s Pirates!, which was also ten bucks, so I assumed that it would at least be all right.  Nope: can’t save a game without it crashing and the 3D is wonky.

Anyway: good fantasy game?  I’m looking for cheap, good, and at least a couple of years old, and I already have Diablo II.

    If you don’t mind a lot of old school feel, I got a lot of play out of Eschalon: Book I.

    The demo gives you a pretty extensive chacne to kick the tires, too.

    Well, if you like the Diablo II gameplay (and who doesn’t?), there’s Titan Quest, which is very similar gameplay, except using ancient Greek Mythology as the setting. Lots of fun for a dungeon crawl. Came out, in, oh, 2006 I think?

    It plus the expansion are $20, but if you have a computer that will run the GameTap client I’d do it that way instead. Then it’s $10/month with access to about a thousand games, ranging from old console games emulated, from Atari 2600 on up through sega/nintendo stuff, to Windows games that are only a year or two old. The only caveat is that the client doesn’t run on 64 bit windows, so you have to have a slightly old technology computer to run it.

    I always got a kick out of the Dungeon Keeper games…there is a lot of twisted humor in there.

    It’s the game that Diablo ripped off and simplified.

    Well if you’re going to suggest text-mode games, Dwarf Fortress is the bomb…
