Heya!

Postby Ashtear » Sun Mar 24, 2013 11:01 pm

Hello!

I'm a 26-year-old woman from the Netherlands. I've been a fan of LoK since Soul Reaver 2, though I did own soul reaver before that. Unfortunately I never got into that game because the controls on the PC made the thing unplayable for me. This didn't stop me from watching the intro over and over again. :geek: I was really fascinated by the way they spoke.

As a gamer I mostly prefer third person games with a good story. Currently playing Darksiders and Assassin's Creed series. The story is sometimes a bit 'meh'.

My other hobbies include horses and ( :o :shock: :? )fanfiction... Though I don't write all that much and I never finish anything. Right now I'm having some fun with writing down my own take on Blood Omen 2. I was pretty horrified at the way they handled the characters in that game. blech!

Right! That's it for now. I'll go back to lurking.

Hi Ashtear!

Welcome! Please post your fanfic here after you write it. I'll even illustrate a scene for you. Hopefully that's some incentive to finish it. :)
I like horseback riding as well! Once I figured out how to exert proper control, I really started having fun with horses. (I found out you can make friends with them by scratching places they can't reach, like their chest)
You know, if you get a controller for your PC, you can still play Soul Reaver, esp now that they're all on sale on Steam.
I love AC and Darksiders as well. So much good gaming there!
Warmest welcome, please make yourself at home here!

Daniel

Thank you, sir! That's a very interesting offer. :D Is it OK if I place plot and character outline in the fanfiction section besides the standard fanfic?

Horses are interesting animals and a lot can be learned from them. Mine is a bit of a character and she teaches me not to be such a pushover. How often do you ride?

I still have all the LoK games 8-) and two controllers, yet SR is still having a fit at me about the movement controls. There are fixes for that as well, but I cannot get them to work. I'm actually considering just buying a psp... That might work. :?

I'm in the process of replaying all the LoK games. I've started on SR2 and Defiance. They are giving me the least amount of trouble.

Welcome Ashtear! :) sorry to hear about the troubles with SR1 on pc. Do you have a microsoft controller? I myself use dual shock 2 hooked up through usb port on my pc and then have it assigned in Xpadder 1.3. and it works in the game. PM if you need any help with this :)

PSP is cool, but there is a problem with lack of R2 and L2 buttons, so it might be difficult to rotate the camera.

I have the psp version - you use the analog to move raz and the directional pad for the camera.

oh and beware of the "death" glitch when shifting in the spirit world..in case it happens to you too because it really messes up the graphics and makes the game unplayable till you reset.
