Black Sigil (spoiler-free)

Has anyone played this yet? I'm only up to the first save point at the moment and had to stop because I have a feeling this game will consume my life if I don't.

Discuss it here, bit no spoilers in this thread.

No, I haven't played it. I looked at it on Wikipedia though, and it looks truly epic. This is definitely one I'm looking at getting. Nice find man.

Well Kairu just happens to be the name of one of my dogs(The other one is Kairi) but we claimed it well before I even heard of this game today.

Well so far I've played for about 1.5 hours and spent most of that time just running around talking to every NPC in sight and killing things. It reminds me very much of the RPGs of old, which is a great thing, and the graphics are fantastic, but I can already tell the sound effects are going to get old quickly. That, and they aren't very varied. For example, a wolf biting me sounds the same as me hitting the wolf with my sword, so when I'm in a fight against nothing but wolves, I hear the same sound over and over. Pretty lame. The animations are also lacking. I'm holding out an opinion of the soundtrack until I hear more songs.

Never even heard of it. I saw some videos though and it reminds me a lot of Chrono Trigger. Which was awesome even though I haven't beaten it. Pretty much the whole story has been spoiled to me anyway though. But yeah, I downloaded it earlier and I might start playing it if I beat Starforce and Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland.

Just a warning: it can get difficult at times. I never use healing items in RPGs, but I did in this one. Often.

NutMan will become famous soon enough

Nintendo Power gave it a 5/10(which really means 3/10 everywhere else) so I've been steering clear of this one. Might pick it up for cheap in a bargain bin though.

I'd say so far I'd give it a 7/10. I'm about five hours in.

I started playing it. Like you said, the sound effects are repetitive. To add to that, I absolutely hate random enemy battles where you can't avoid it. Any game with that always loses points in my book. And the overworld just sucks. The character walks ridiculously slow. I'm not sure if I even want to continue playing it.

The overworld isn't a big deal until later, since you don't really need to walk far to get to where you need to go. Once you need to walk far, there's other methods of moving around.

You can run from the random encounters, but it's hardly worth it. Hold B if you want to. I guess random encounters are a bit too old-school for some people.

Anyways, it starts off pretty slow, but I'm still saying it's just a mediocre game. How far are you (remember, spoiler-free)? Just name a town or something.

For myself, I stopped playing after I walked into a battle where I was forced to use only one character, and I didn't give him any healing items and he was already injured, so he lasted two attacks and I lost the boss fight. Nearest save point was about half an hour before that, so...haven't played for a few days.
