I have spent a little bit. Bought two packs of coins in the mobile version of You Don't Know Jack and some treasure keys in Dota 2. The latter I regret, since I got items for a hero I didn't like playing and also I stopped playing that game shortly afterwards. Might send the Path of Exile devs a tip or two in the future. They deserve it.

Sorry guys, it was totally my fault. I uninstalled the nvidia Experience nonsense, and manually updated my graphic drivers and now on 1920x1080 and high settings works fine!
I might try that fix thou
No problem. It also makes the game look a bit better, as it removes the excessive bloom and tones down the depth of field effects a bit.
I had significant performance problems on my laptop too. Even if I dumped the resolution down to 1280x720 and set it to the lowest detail level I could barely even get a stable 30 frames out of it. Did some searching around and I found a performance fix someone made. You can find it right here. The game still doesn't run perfectly for me, but it's at least playable and doesn't take any massive performance hits. Good luck! Liking the game quite a bit, despite the jank.
It's exactly the same. Only different.

Very true. Even if I look back fondly at many 80's and 90's bands, there's no denying that there were myriads of crap bands back then too. Once in a while my mom and aunt will play some 60's or 70's hit and talk about how it's "so much better than today's music", but it really is just as bad.
Devil's Castle Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (otherwise known as Castlevania: Rondo of Blood)
+ Many cool secrets and there are alternate paths like Castlevania 3.
- Doesn't have the fluid controls and 8-direction attack ability from Castlevania 4.
Funny you should mention it, since I've played through both Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment recently. I'm also replaying (or should I say "actually playing through") Baldur's Gate 1 right now. Playing those games started resurrecting my interest in D&D. Then GB Unplugged reminded me that Pathfinder exists, so I bought the core rulebook and now I'm gearing up for a campaign with some friends. The players have all made their characters, so now all I've gotta do is rebalance the first adventure and find a day when everybody's available. Very much looking forward to playing again.
So anyway, back to video games. After Baldur's Gate 2 and Throne of Bhaal there weren't really any great D&D-based games. Neither of the Neverwinter Nights games really grabbed my attention. The Temple of Elemental Evil had cool combat but was otherwise lacklustre and Pool of Radiance was riddled with bugs. Then 4e came out and everybody pretty much hated it, so now all we have is Daggerdale and the Neverwinter MMO.
I'd like to see devs go back to Infinity Engine style RPGs, like Obsidian are doing with Project Eternity. That game isn't based on D&D, but I suspect its influence will be pretty clear. I'd love to see an IE style game set in the Ravenloft universe, basically Baldur's Gate 2 with Gothic horror influences.
I'm thinking about inviting some friends over for a Resident Evil 2 endurance run on Halloween night. One of them is easily scared too, which should make it really fun.
Maybe I'll play some Castlevania IV too. That's a good Halloween game.
