Topic: General Gaming / Sookies's Game Reviews: Gemcraft: Chasing Shadows

Hello everyone, just thought I’d quickly pop on to tell you what I think about the new gemcraft game.

The game is good and has real moments of quality, but there are a couple of REALLY SILLY things that make the whole thing seem unattractive and unapproachable.

First impressions are good. It’s gemcraft at its best and the graphics are amazing. It’s dark and eerie but also colourful with good contrast. The music score is very good and compliments the game. The map is a little backwards and could have been more awesome, having hexagons and more hexagons with an undetailed map is not something I expected from this. However everything else is presented with true love.

Now for the gameplay. The new elements are fantastic. I love the spells because they add a real strategic aspect to it, and it’s about time my wizard actually got his own arse up and did something other than just chuck gem bombs. The difficulty is about right and reminds me of the learning curve in Gemcraft: Chapter 0. I really like the idea of talismans because everybody loves treasure hunting, and the new mana pool system is a superb change.

So it’s all perfect right? No.

Firstly there is still the luck element regarding hit damages, which seem even more extreme now. Sometimes all you need to do is roll lucky high hits and you win.

Unfortunately they decided to add a currency called shadow cores. You need to use shadow cores to use traits to get more exp. Considering that you come across the need to get more levels to progress rather early, they shouldn’t ask you to grind for it.

Then there are stupid exploits for grinding…

You can either play a normal level for some minor cores or i’ve found that if you play H4 for the first time you get 3 spirits coming across the map. I don’t know if they appear everytime but combined they drop over 75 shadow cores. If you then lose the map they reappear again and you get 75 cores each time. THIS IS STUPID.

I can understand the need for shadow cores. I like the idea of using them to upgrade talismans – that’s awesome – but to unlock traits, that is pathetic, especially when there is huge imbalanced to the amount of cores you get on each level and the huge need to use traits to get exp.

So overall – although I love this new gemcraft and I love knowing how far it has come, the silly shadow core system has ruined what would otherwise be a perfect game.

So it gets 8 / 10.

I can’t recount because users like fullmeasure kept deleting their posts and reposting them in the attempt to fool me to add another vote.

All these people deleting their posts and then reposting has made this far more difficult than I thought. And it doesn’t help they have same avatar, however thenewampkit’s vote does appear legit so…

Topic: Serious Discussion / "God is not good"

This is my simple view of god. Why? Because god is a religious word that is defined by a supreme being of “sentient” thinking, and as such he can also physically influence events.

Discuss, looking at all the negative suffering in the world, how god can remain good and let these horrible things continue.

And would that mean those who call him good are also horribly misunderstanding the world?

SD gets one single new post about every 4 hours. I don’t know about you but that seems pretty dead to me.

Maybe you and your asshatting trolls killed it. I’m going to revive it.

I’m addicted to watching this site fall to the crows.

I am also addicted to the vain hope that Kongregate will one day actually produce something that makes it noteworthy again.

I don’t see how ‘speed running a console game’ and ‘cheating on a flash game’ are the same thing.

How about – speedrunning a flash game?

And so you know, they did VVVVVV.

Firstly it’s full of hackers.

Secondly it struggles to report a second highscore.

Nobody actually cares that much about the specific high scores for most games. People care about cool techniques to manipulate game mechanics, but the actual number is only important in that it reflects your ability to perform those techniques.

If there’s a game where you want to brag about your achievements, do it by making a thread or a youtube video where you demonstrate your domination, instead of trying to show it with a number on a high score board.

Excatly, and have a thread for it.

Eg: Sookies VS Crows Battle Version 2: Current High Score Holder: RollerCROWface: – with link embed to either video or screenshot.

We still don’t have a thread for SPEEDRUNNING.

Some people have a special set of skills to manipulate the system to their benefit.

Err yeah. I’m good at platforming and shooters but crap at sports and/or strategy.

Some people have a special set of skills to manipulate the website to their benefit.

Err no.

Some people have the ability to use photoshop.

We should have video only then.
