He probably means EA's sports games. Though it's hard to tell, because of the other 2.1 million EA games.
And there are many people who would disagree with you on A4 being "sweet".

Nope. There's no way to do the Rebel path without repairing the Spawner. That's the point in the game where you have to choose between the Rebel and the Shaper paths.

I think that the dialogue option choices worked reasonably well, but I have removed them entirely from Geneforge 4. Now everything faction-wise is determined by what quests you decide to complete or how you complete them.

I have my worries about the new system, but I think it'll be a bit more interesting overall.

- Jeff Vogel

Dammit. Now, don't get me wrong, the new system sounds great. But I loved being able to choose what to say. Maybe in G5, Jeff can strike a balance between the two.

I can sense Dikiyoba's next Spiderwebber fanfic brewing. The plot would revolve around the Ur-Ad and his adware minions invading the boards. The exploding toasters would be working on the inside, elimanating Spiderwebbers one-by-one. It would be titled something like "Attack of the Adware and Explod- Visit Bob's Fishing Supplies Today!!!".

Uh, if you have enough Living Tools for a door, then a message will pop up saying "Do you want to use X Living Tools?".

That was intentional. Jeff designed the game so that you had to pick between the Rebels and the Shapers. You have to decide which is the lesser evil.

By using the editor, I can tell you that a Guardian Mage is pretty powerful. Expecially for the strong daze. Yes, maybe the solution would be a Mental/Blessing Guardian Mage!

There's the thing. You're using the editor. That completely breaks the game. Using the editor to create a powerful character isn't a valid argument. If you have a 30 in each stat, no matter what class it is, it will be good at everything.

Items to hold on to in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 7002
Profile #3
Let's see:
Reaper Batons
Guardian Claymore
Reapers
Guardian Cloak
Demon Claws- There's only two of these in the game.
Artila Eyes
Agent Robe
Omnicharm-Duh.
Any kind of charm. There's a bunch
Tek's Spectral Dirk.
This is all off the top of my head, so...
Sorry if I confused any GF3 items with GF2 items.
And Miya's strategy works great. Just don't put to many items in one zone or they'll start disappearing (at 200 items, I believe).
A lot of deciding whch items to keep depends on what kind of character your playing.

Tom, just to point out, you're a one-star yourself. So, by your own logic, you're a moron.

How about this for a rating system?
1-Star:Mud
2-Star:Villiage Idiot
3-Star:Person
4-Star:Super(Insert Name Here)
5-Star:Lord of All

What's Tachyon about? A tachyon is a theoretical particle that goes faster than the speed of light, so is it about a future where people use tachyon-fueled engines to get around the galaxy?

There's really no point to that unless something is causing the cave-quakes. You'd just wander around. You literally have to have a main bad guy. It gives the story focus.
