    Titan Quest Update...

    This game is addictive. Simple, yet complex. As a long-time gamer, I know how you manipulate a player into wanting to keep playing, and move on further into the game, and I don't mind.

    Originally a $50+ game when it came out, it was $23.99 when we got it in a local store before Christmas. She made me wait til Christmas! Bitch...

    Anyway, it is essentially Diablo, like Diablo should have been, and Diablo was still a damn good game. I beat all of them, so you know the hours I put in. It's better than Dungeon Quest, and that was an unbelievably good game.

    Titan Quest has no end of side quests, it seems, where you can earn loot, experience points, level up, and so on. From the map, it looks like there are 8 major quests, and it is Wednesday, and I have completed two of them.
    Apparently, the level of difficulty increases substantially as you move along. But I got a major unique weapon nearly right away, and have been able to enchant it, so I'm pretty buff. I just hit Level 8, and I enchanted a damn good mace with both fire and ice, and the results are impressive when I whack someone.

    My favorite part about the game, is a button on your HUD you can click, and it will take you to any other portal in the game you have already activated, and...wait for it...back! How cool is that?! Before you get into a big fight, you can throw down a portal, and then, if the monsters are kicking your ass and chasing you, you can run back and jump into it and warp away!

    And just before bed last night, I had to clear a cave of giant warrior spiders, and I almost regretted how beautiful the game looks. Earlier, I was surrounded by undead zombies, clutching at me and trying to bite, and I just freaked out and started swinging wildly, but fortunately, I've assigned experience points to my Rage Mode so the results turned out better than okay.

    Yes, I'm a geek. Or is that nerd? Whatever, check out the System Requirements before you buy this game. I have been experiencing some serious lag, and if it keeps up, I'm gonna set it aside until the next (if ever) upgrade. I keep my new $300 video card that would solve all of my problems but that I cannot use beside me, on the desk, to remind me that, no indeed...

    It is not a fair world.
