so someone was very nice and they gifted me this awesome collection, so I decided I'd play Might and Magic six, on the recommendation from friends in the IRC.
When I loaded it up, I saw two options "Make your own Party!" and "just fucking play the game!" (these are not exactly the same wording)
So I said "well you know what, this game looks pretty cool, let's check out the build yer own party option."
What I saw there horrified me.
a stat sheet like an accountants dinner.
So I freaked out, I didn't know what to do, I wasn't going to just go barreling in like some idiot, because then I'll die and then have to start over, and I FUCKING HATE STARTING OVER.
So I decided, "you know what? let's read the manual, maybe this will educate me."
I read the manual, and my brain explodes, the storyline, the humor, the artwork (ok maybe not the artwork), the music (alright, I didn't listen to the soundtrack yet, damn pax podcasts), but most of all, the game treating itself like more than a game.
I read through as much of the manual as much as I had time to, and I was amazed.
But I'm still intimidated. I'm afraid to play this game. Why? because I still have no clue what I'm doing. I'm afraid of having to start over, and I really don't want to look up a gamefaq.
Any tips/ideas/stories/circlejerking you guys want to give/take/shower in ?
