  3. Announced makeover of Aveyond 2

    Re AP remake: I don't understand why the battle system gets so much hate, as I enjoyed it immensely. It was more like an actual battle, where you could retreat in the middle of it if you bit off more than you could chew. It made going through old places (and going to new places, too, actually) very quick and less cumbersome than the AV games (for example, if I needed to go back to the home village, I could just run by the bees; if I got too close, the worst that could happen was that they attack me for like 3 HP at most)--no worrying about getting repetitively sucked back into the battle screen. I guess I just got used to getting to the skills. I replay it somewhat frequently just because it's so cute and quick! (Just wanna throw out the minority opinion ) Re more relevant things: Out of genuine curiosity, why is the Amaranthia team spending time on re-releasing an old game when their energies would be better focused on releasing one of the three games that people have been anxiously waiting for a number of years? I understand that things came up and they were working hard on the game and whatnot, I'm just wondering how production got backed up so much and if they're working on it (an update on how it's moving along would be nice!). I'm not abandoning hope or anything, I hope they aren't having too many difficulties. Other than that, I suppose that it'll be nice to have something new from Amaranthia to keep us entertained; I actually just finished replaying AV2 and it was as good as ever! :)It'll be cool to see how they remake it for sure
  4. Upgrading from version 1 to version 2?

    I figured it out! (i.e. I re-downloaded and it was the second version and it worked, to my surprise.) Re-starting from the beginning is fine, since I wasn't very far in anyways, and especially since there's an extra scene with the snow queen. Thanks a lot, and happy holidays!
  5. In the lazy, self-indulgent spirit of winter break, I'm on a re-playing streak and as I was looking at the maps, I learned that there was a newer version of AV2. XP I was wondering if there was a way to upgrade; Argoyle mentioned that you could install the second version over the first, but I'm not sure how. (The thread: Version 1 vs Version 2) I could re-buy (I think I have a coupon for Big Fish or something), but any wise words of wisdom would be much appreciated!
  6. What do you LOVE in Aveyond and want more of?

    I have a lot of these--Aveyond is one of my favorite games or I wouldn't be here, anyways--but there's just one part of the game that I think I like most about AV that I don't think anyone else had said: creative maps. By that, I don't mean crazy maps that are either labyrinths or that you can make do things, but I find that I like that when you go into the wild (particularly in the earlier games), it's perfectly made. It doesn't require expert button-pressing to navigate, but it isn't so straightforward that you wonder at the point of walking through, the chests are well-placed (as well as what's within them), with good dispersion/placement of monsters. I don't know. That was me trying to put into words an experience/feeling that's hard to verbalize. I hope I did it justice.
  7. How do you like your Pairings?

    Forgive me if I'm restating something that's been pointed out in an earlier post, because I haven't read all of the pages, just some. I think generally, seeing more, like... how do I explain? Dialogue, interaction, development between relationships helps make good pairings and a deeper story, overall. I understand that it's gotta be hard to keep the balance between having enough time spent on character development for the hard-core Aveyond gamer and not making it boring for the newbie being introduced to the world of Aveyond, but methinks that Aveyond can afford to extend the development. I'm not talking in the way of long professions of troubled pasts and redemption to make two characters lean towards one another, but having it a little spread out throughout it games. E.g. You're just going on, to the next city, fighting monster, leveling up, looting, doin' yo' thang, and you see that the only way to get to the city it through this tight space, so you go. An event is triggered and some monster leaps out and catches female unawares. Male (perhaps one shy to show emotions) jumps out to rescue. This doesn't make the female totally fall for him, it just opens her eyes towards the male a little. Another e.g. Instead of: "We found this, we need to go there." (Group agrees and goes.) Have: "We found this, we need to go there." *some resistance from group member* *resistance solved with compromise, therefore development* *group goes* (The male/female thing was just used as an example, please no homophobia accusations! I come in peace! ) Bottom line(-ish): subtle, slow, development. I think this is a challenge for story-writers everywhere, but Amanda is an amazing story-writer! It's one of my favorite part about these games.
  8. Aw, shucks. XP Thanks for responding to my musings anyways!
  9. ...are they meant to be reminiscent of any location that we were introduced to in a previous Aveyond?
  10. Do You Eat Chicken Soup When You're Sick?

    Ramen? Rice noodles? Ramen: http://archives.starbulletin.com/97/06/04/features/story1.html Rice noodles: http://kongkeefood.com/images/product_rice_noodle_large.jpg
  11. Oh, you're right >.< I thought that it was supposed to be Spook that I run into in Tyobi instead of Rat. Thank you for clearing that up!
  12. So whilst re-playing TLO, silly blond me totally skipped over the jail and went straight to Egdar. Can I still recruit Spook or finish the real golden frog sidequest?
  13. Okay, awesome Thanks!
  14. I noticed that in the info on the AV1 page, it said W98, XP and Vista, and most of my computers are Windows 7 now :/ So I was wondering if Aveyond would work on them? Thanks
  15. new zodiac sign

    ehh... i don't think someone can just show up and add a whole new sign to the zodiac and change all of the original dates. i don't see much back-up info behind this... =P the new horiscope says i'd be a scorpio, like both my parents, and that doesn't fit me that well, i don't think. that, and i'd rather stay proud and sagittarius =] on the chinese zodiac i'm an ox, the shortest name for an animal ever =P i think that fits me well too. so i'm stickin with the good ol' 12-constillations zodiac =]
