That makes sense. And it may also explain why he didn't get a replacement for Cheeseball. But he didn't seem very impressive in A2 either.

Dikiyoba can't wait for the windows version of A4 to come out so Dikiyoba can find all this out on Dikiyoba's own.

Edit: Rephrasing.

From A2, I thought Solberg was supposed to be some demon-fighting specialist, yet he needs an adventurer's help?

According to the link, I've now beat out TM for spot number 10 (at least for now). Weird.

See! Look where talking in third person can get you.

Dikiyoba thought it would be a book too but Dikiyoba wasn't too surprised or disappointed to find out it wasn't. Not much suprises or disappoints Dikiyoba anymore. But it would be nice to have a topic about some good (or bad, since Spiderwebbers enjoy a good gripe) books.

Edit: Spelling.

No, they would be less useful. At some point, something becomes so low that only something lower can be better. And if the stupid pyroroamers were gone, maybe they could be replaced with something better.

Dikiyoba also thinks the idea of exloding slimes is funny. Gloop, gloop, boom!

How many feral and outdoor cats actually die of old age though? 20 is the noteworthy number though, just like 100 is for humans. Is it the real average? No? Is it the highest? No. But it sounds good.

At any rate, Cheeseball appears to have lived a long, glorious life, even if he was bored for most of it.

Edit: In support of the protest of the base 10 system, Dikiyoba is celebrating Dikiyoba's 191 post.

The newest generation of Americans are expected to live shorter lives then their parents. This, of course, is partially to blame because of our affulence and poor lifestyles.

Either way, it's not a good sign when adults say, "I'm glad I'm not in your generation. It's much more difficult." American society clearly isn't making the best of choices.

Okay, so Dikiyoba lied. Dikiyoba has more points (or something resembling them) to make.

Uhh...make a RPG game in a working communistic country? Okay, out of ideas. Seriously, it is just constantly trying to find the right balance between pure capitalism and socialism.

However, the good news is that it is likely that eventually mechanization will make menial labor jobs less and less useful and a high standard of living more and more accessible, with the result being that eventually everyone will be able to be a part of some sort of working class at least (rather than being desperately poor).
The problem is, menial manufacturing jobs are being replaced with menial service jobs. So it's not likely to become true. Expecially since there has been in increase in poverty and a decrease in the middle class for the past several years in the US.

I wonder how the economy and society would be different if money was pumped into the middle class instead of the poor and the insanely rich.

Semodius, you will never get your thread back. Oddly enough, it's one of the more on-topic threads around.

Different cities attract different groups of people. As it should be. Just find the city that works for you. Or go live in the country if you don't like cities. The more one area becomes like another, the more frustrated people get.

Dikiyoba keeps the difficulty as high as possible so the game doesn't get boring and adjusts to the next lowest level to beat those battles that are just a smidgen too difficult and it is too much of a hassle to come back later at a higher level. Or if a higher level would make that tough combat too easy.

It's funny, because in the end text of G1 (if you play pro-Shaper) the surviving Sholai (the ones who don't use canisters) meet with the Shapers, the two cultures interact, and your character actually goes to Sholai lands.

Dikiyoba thinks that the biggest downside to G2 and G3 is the forced and rewritten history of G1.

Ah. The knowledge brews. Dikiyoba sees your point. For a party of four, they aren't critical (and Dikiyoba never has enough money to buy them anyway) but for a singleton, they would be extremely valuable. But special skills are expensive for full parties and singletons alike.

Forget pyroroamers. Dikiyoba wants to be able to create exploding slimes in G4.

Councilor

The "average" cat's lifespan is twenty years but some can live 30+ years, in addition to a few years gained by being an intelligent familiar. But if Cheeseball had lived through the original trilogy, it would already be old and wouldn't live the thirty or so years between A3 and A4.

Dikiyoba hopes that Alorael will not ignore this post, seeing as it is beneficial to his theory.

Edit: Sig change.

If that is possible, Dikiyoba will gladly do it. But how do you propose doing that with The Za-Khazi Run? If you mean by playing the scenario through once and playing it again later, Dikiyoba has already done that.

At least three of them do. Use piercing crystals and shattering crystals wisely because there aren't enough of them in the scenario to open all the spots.

Kelda was based in Maraliss (sp?), but the shop there is abandoned. It's the one that can't be entered without a piercing or shattering crystal. She probably left. And the private home isn't explained. I would guess that it is Avizo's but I have no proof.

It would be nice if the Fungal Cavern related somehow to the rest of scenario. The bandit's hideout and the goblin valley were tied into the scenario but the Fungal cavern was just there. There was no backstory or relevance to the plot.

You don't happen that program or any program that uses it open, do you?

It sounds silly but Dikiyoba doesn't know how many times Dikiyoba tried to rename, move, or delete a file that Dikiyoba had open.

Well, Jeff did say somewhere that he wanted to make G4 very different than A4. Of course, that doesn't mean that G4 will be very different than the other three Geneforges.

Dikiyoba thinks that the Shapers should use the gene-viewing eyepieces to make creations evolve faster and easier and put anyone who modifies a human (or is modified) to instant death. No more canisters and an interesting plotline.
