favorite character type? in Geneforge Series

The agent.

It's strange, since in most games I prefer to use melee combat rather than magic. But, in Geneforge, this is what works best for me.

Greta or Alwan? in Geneforge Series
Warrior

Greta. I just prefer agents.

In my first game, both of them actually left and refused to re-join me. I was mainly rebel, but trying to stay a bit neutral. :rolleyes: Obviously, it wasn't neutral enough. Or maybe it was too neutral. Hmm...

Anyway, I'm trying again as a loyal agent, and I still prefer Greta.

Btw. I am not a beginner to Geneforge. I played every RPG game that was released by Spiderweb.

Geneforge 3 has a different kind of zone in some places, that you can't 'exitzone' out of. Playing the other Geneforges doesn't mean you will know this, because the other Geneforges didn't have this kind of zone.

The best idea is to not use the exitzone cheat at all. Or at least, F3 or save right before.

Sharon needs the pure crystal shard to make that ring, I believe. I'm not sure if it's useful anywhere else, since I always go for the ring.

I think you should work on one for GF1. If nothing else, it keeps you in practice while you wait for GF3.

On topic again, I quite like the trainer. I especially like the unlimited hitpoints, which is often the only part I use. Plus, it has things for creations, which is great if you like to have your own undefeatable mini-army.

Hostility?

I'm just saying that some people (not necessarily myself) can be strict about that sort of thing. I've never run into trouble over it, and never caused trouble over it. I have, however, seen people get quite upset about it.

EDIT: Corrected unclear phrasing.

Didn't they create the spawners and turrets in geneforge 1? Weren't the turrets supposed to be difficult to make?

I should go play that again, actually...

As for improvements to GF4: How far can you 'improve' a game before it becomes a completely different game?

I really just hope that it is like the other Geneforge games, and runs on my clunky old computer.

EDIT: Isn't this question just a bit premature? Geneforge 3 isn't even out for windows yet.
And if anyone tells me to get a mac, they'd better be willing to pay for it.

Would it be any fun to play a commoner?

Here is the part where I'm tempted to say how much I enjoy playing commoners... But that's in an entirely different setting.

I am all for suspension of disbelief in games. If you want 'realism' play the Sims (I actually rather enjoy the Sims 2) but if you want to create a mini-army of creatures and rid small islands of rogues, well, there's got to be some sacrifice. In this case, it's the reality that goes. But, there are other games dedicated to that, so it's not a big deal.

You can't have it both ways.

Although, a combination of the Sims and Geneforge might not be all bad...

Yeah, okay, it probably would be, but still...

Three Questions in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 2607

Killing Shanti doesn't really do anything, at least not in the first few zones. (If you kill her in one, she just appears again in the next) Well, it means you don't learn whatever skill she teaches (Daze for agents, but different for shapers and guardians) if you kill her before that point. I wasn't game to try it in one of the 'town' areas, with all those other NPCs around.

Actually, I might have killed her in that little house that she stays in until she goes missing, but I think the town turned hostile on me. Save first. Unless you want the town to turn hostile.

Hmm...

I can't believe I'm the only person to have tried killing Shanti, but I'm glad I'm not the only one to have thought of it.

Whats your favorite creation? in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 2607
Profile #17
Fyora. They're cute, compact, and combustible. (I couldn't really think of another c word to describe the fire part)

Fire!

I don't really use creations, so I might just whip up a fyora (as it is a very early -- the first? -- creation, and doesn't cost much essence) to scout out areas I'm not sure are safe yet.

Plus, they breathe fire.

And don't get me started on drayks and drakons... They're too smug for their own good, they think that they're better than everyone else. I didn't mind so much in Geneforge 1, there were only a couple of drayks, and they seemed pretty neutral. But then in Geneforge 2... No, I much prefer the fyora.

Which type of shaper do u like best? in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 2607
Profile #4
It was a tough choice to make, between agents and guardians. Generally, I prefer agents, but there are times when all I want to do is bash things up close.

I don't really like having creations (although that is actually what attracted me to the game in the first place: I thought the fyoras looked cute. Okay, and the fire. Fire is good) so shaper was never an option for me.

I usually build up the agent's combat stats as well, though. I prefer melee to magic, but I like the fire spell. Did I mention I like fire?

As for the graphics? Agent, every time. But the graphics really don't make much difference to me.

improvements for geneforge 3.... your thoughts in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 2607

I kind of feel obligated to point this out... Geneforge is not Exile. You like Exile, you play Exile. I don't like Exile, personally, I play Geneforge. I loved the simplicity of the first one, and the second one was cool, to a point. I want a simple game, to give my poor head a rest. Almost everything you seem to want to change is exactly what I want to stay the same, or change in a completely different way. Being nice, I'll focus on the parts I do agree with. :)

Playing something other than a shaper would be fun, but preferably something human, like a rogue servile perhaps. (I'm still of the belief that serviles are the modified losers of the ancient war mentioned in the first game)

Hmmm, actually, re-reading the post and that seems about all I agree with. The rest seems like more headache than it's worth. It's causing me a headache just reading about it, and I enjoy reading.

Well, that's all my feeble little brain can come up with, for now. I'll probably look at this later and wonder why on earth I wrote that. *shrug*

Disclaimer: The above is my personal opinion, and is not intended as a flame or otherwise less-than-polite post. :)
