So I've started playing Wizardry V (SNES)
« on: January 10, 2021, 06:46:43 pm »
I wasn't sure exactly what to expect,whether it was something like Ultima or Dragon Quest or what, but so far about half an hour in I've been fairly blown away just by the atmosphere of this game, the lack of Ui and the gritty backgrounds are really awesome, some of the enemies so far are just gobbledygook, but judging by some of the screenshots I've seen, this game has some damn good spritework somewhere down the line, this seems like one I'm definitely going to stick with, even if I have to manually map every floor and inscribe clues by hand.

Which version are you playing? Seems a couple of the games have several different versions with subtle, poorly-documented differences, especially with the Japanese console ports.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

Original SNES port, found it at the bargain store yesterday, I know there's some censorship and translation weirdness, I think I'll probably do a run on this version and then check out some of the other ports if they've been patched.
