W3: DLR is a timeless classic.
Man, the original Archon was my first favourite game.
There was an Archon sequel? I remember a… weird reboot, a few years back.
Archon II: Adept was the pre-reboot sequel.
Yep, it’s Archon II: Adept! I had to post an easy one as I’m on vacation starting now. I was telling my wife during the drive that I was surprised nobody had guessed it yet then said I had no doubt @Gordon_Cameron would be on in an hour or so and nail it. Nearly exactly an hour later, wham!
More complex but not as fun, I remember bouncing off the sequel pretty quickly.
I thought it had some cool ideas and was a legit attempt to make an interesting sequel, not just a cash-in. That said, the stuff with the elements was probably too complicated for its own good. Also some of the piece mechanics (e.g. Siren) maybe looked better on paper than in actual play. Still, my brothers and I had fun with it, though it never really supplanted the original.
Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines?
Dang. That’s funny I thought he had it. I was thinking in a similar register, Ravenloft or something with some Frankenstein creatures in the D&D stable.
I spy a “not Nazi, honest” shield on that helmet, so… Commandos?
Not Bloodrayne 3.
Ah, that polish first person shooter, Mortyr!
