Man, I love the amount of tactics you can apply in this game. I found out that fighting Zombies is so much easier if you use your bow and aim for the head.

I think Im going to replay this game as a pure fighter type with no sneak or magic ability... will be tough seeing how little health potions are available (had to take the healing spell to make up for it).

I haven't found health potions to be too lacking when you include food and magic mushrooms into the mix (I'm doing the warrior path basically). I'm on chapter 7 now I think and I haven't really had too many horridly low health moments, but I did find a regeneration ring also that I've been wearing for a couple chapters now.

Ok, I found one thing annoying... I keep finding the SAME gear all the time...

EDIT: Im at the last chapter now I believe, Still getting doubles of items I have already but I love the two major optionals you get in this game... makes it well worth the replay.

I also found the "Master Thief Armor" which has the letter "G" engraved on it, LOL!

What the ehck did they do to the HL2 engine to make it run so poorly? I can run HL2 at 1920x1200 with all details maxed and get silky smooth framte rates, yet this game I have to run 1024x768 with medium details and it stills stutters like heck. I know my rig is far from top of the line, but I am really surprised at how poorly this game runs.

They added alot more detail (Texture resolution is nuts sometimes) and architecture. The game looks FAR better then HL2 plus it also adds HDR which is always a performance killer.

I really like the MP. I think it is fun to defend the big castles

You need to backtrack your way back to the Main hall where Leanna was. Once you talk with her you will be in for a surprise.

I'm on Chapter 5 where you drop through the floor and your in a nest of spiders. What is the best strategy for killing these guys. I'm currently pure warrior. I'm not sure if investing a point so I get fire would be any helpful. These guys are a real pain.

Fire is the best offense against spiders. Lightning works OK too. If you wait long enough you'll be able to forge a fire sword that'll take them out easily, but you'll have to battle a load of spiders before you get to that point.
