I can't find any. Also, I know some have tried and liked Loki (like Maggie), but has anyone tried The Chosen yet? If so, what say you? Pray tell. think

Sig, someone mentioned working on a Loki walkthrough here on the Loki official forum, but so far I haven't seen anything. That forum has a lot of information about the game though.

I haven't heard anything about a Chosen walkthrough. The official site doesn't have a forum, and in fact, doesn't even have the support up yet. There's links to reviews of the game here if you're interested though.

Thanks, Nickie. These 2 games are next in my queue of ones to try. I'm willing to try 'em both without walkthroughs---the more important thing, for me, is that there are trainers for both games. Loki sounds fairly straightforward. If I hit a puzzle room or something, I can probably find out what the trick is. Want to try The Chosen first, though, when they get here. wave

Hope you let us know what you think when you do Sig. Interesting that they're releasing Chosen as a budget game. wave

Hi,

Does anyone know if this game will work on Windows 2000 and is it a play alone type or is it only online type?

I have 2 sites that tell me 2 different information.

EB Games says:

Windows XP/Vista 32/64-bit
Pentium4 2GHz/AthlonXP 2000+
512 MB RAM
64 MB DirectX 9 compatible (GeForce4 Ti/Radeon 9000)
DirectX 9 compatible, DirectX: 9.0c or higher (supplied on the game DVD)
Hard disk space: 7 GB
Multiplayer: LAN/broadband Internet for online play and 1 GB RAM

Amazon says:

Windows Vista / XP / 2000

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 10/19/07 09:10 PM

Here's the specs from the official site:
Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista
Pentium III 1.4 GHz
DirectX compatible 3D accelerator card (64MB+ RAM)
256 MB RAM
600 MB hard drive space
4x CD-ROM
Mouse & Keyboard

So it is meant to play on Windows 2000 anyway.
It's standalone. Multi-player is online.

Welcome to Gameboomers derWalrus! Hopefully you get a response - this one and this other one have pretty much been all that has been mentioned by people playing the game. Are you enjoying it?

I have found this game to be a sleeper! It is exceptional. I have been gaming since the text adventures and have played every RPG I could find over the years - so this is a qualified opinion.

It moves along like Titan Quest, but, has "save" anytime. Rapid loads. It accommodates a number of playing styles from a "run alone" archer to a "Tank" with henchmen.

The item modification system is one of extreme balance. Too complex to go into here, but, a player could modify his equipment rather than buy new equipment. The cost may be higher, but, the stuff is better than you can buy.

And there is magic at a steep cost.

Very hard to be a multi talented character here.

The game changes gear by letting you recruit some volunteers in some areas, while other areas have you play as a party of 1 with a summoned (an expendable) helper. After you advance into the game you can trap and summon demons to help.

Money is scarce and resource management can accommodate a number of methods.

There is much, much to do in areas other than fighting.

The demo is really a pale portrait of the full game.

Thanks for the info! One of the threads did mention the cauldron of creation and it sounds interesting. You mention magic at a steep cost. Can you be a magic user in this game?
Posted By: derWalrus

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 04/11/08 12:29 AM

Yes, a magic user can become quite powerful. The trade off is that you have to put just about every XP you get into magic. However this is true for whatever specialty. I an running an Archer and I am level 20. You get 5 XP for each level up. You start your character with a level 35 in their selected skill. I have 127 in Dexterity and have only place a few points in strength so I could wear some armor. So, a Mage would be in a like situation.

There are also some abilities to choose from. You get 1 point per level for these. They are in Offense, Defense and Other. Proper selection helps build the character. You can have one from each category "running" at the same time.

Your "Helper" a Golem (a melee Tank)or a Neferkar (a flying ranged thingee) is a summoned creature. Upon their death you must spend 500 gold for a scroll to revive them. Expensive. They are a huge help. However, I have found I must go it alone at times to save money to repair my gear. Everything is a balancing act.

I have played Loki through about 3 or 4 times, have not used a walkthrough, for some reason this game does not need it. Hard to get lost, but easier to get killed. Love the game, highly recommend it. I have not played The Chosen, is it a point and click???

Thanks and hope it was a help

Thanks, your enthusiasm for the game is encouraging, and I may have to try it sometime. According to the link above Maggie, Sig said it was mostly point and click, with hitting the space bar for pause.

It is a great game, there are four characters from four different lands, play the big guy last, he has the toughest animal towards the first half to kill. It is a keeper game for me and I was never dissappointed with it at all.By the way, Sig is right, it is about 95% point and click, so you know I like it.

Sorry sweet Maggie, I meant the Chosen. I did try Loki and...well, let's just say I don't think of it fondly.

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 04/11/08 10:34 AM

I have played The Chosen once through and I really enjoyed it.
I have started with a few more people just to have something to fool around with.

It is easy point and click and with the summoned help it goes quick.

I love using the shotgun in this game hehe. smile

Looked for The Chosen - and so far can only find it as a pay and download - is that correct or can you buy a "hard copy"? Not that I really care but I do like my shiny little disks laugh

I played The Chosen and really liked the game, but I had to resort to a trainer because you never had enough money to buy things. grin I got half-way through without the trainer and found myself hanging around waiting to heal because I couldn't buy healing. You have to spend most of your money on repairing your equipment.
Posted By: nickie

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 04/11/08 04:57 PM

Syd, it's available on CD and at a very reasonable price. Here is one place you can buy it.

I am at the Desert City and still doing well on money. Tight, but, OK. I invested in the talent that causes you "to take care of your equipment". I also use my alternate weapon to smash stuff.

I refrain from using my Golem unless I have to as he is expensive (though he might be cheaper than repairing weapons).

How big is this game. How far through are you when you are in the Desert City?

I am running an Archer. What did you run?

Do you (or any of you on the forum) recall the fight with Scorpo? I think I missed something there. I activated the two glyphs on the rooftops and noticed that two towers gained a "glow" at their bases. I figured these would help kill Scorpo, but they only attacked me. I had to kill him with my shoot and dodge technique. What did you do or find there?

Thanks nickie - I seem to be on a game buying jag today (who da thunk it) lol I just bought Arcanum, Dawn of Magic and Grim Fandango (my son lost Disk B some time ago and I've been meaning to replace it). Guess I'll end my day like I began and buy, buy, buy laugh

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 04/12/08 11:58 AM

My game is on a CD and I got it at Gamestop.
I like the fact that once you install it you don't need to use the CD at all. It is fully installed.

I just checked on my saves and the End game ends up in:

Alchemist's Chamber
Kamieniec City
South Galicia Europe

The save before this is in:

The Ice palace
Siberia
The Arctic Circle

I don't know how how much more you have from the Desert City but that is where you end up.

I have been having way to much fun playing Titan Quest-Imortal Throne and don't play with this one to much at the moment so don't remember as much detail about it.

Thanks VHL. TQ is a lot of fun, isn't it? I loved the artwork of the legendary places.

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 04/12/08 04:31 PM

Everything about is fun.

I love that you have a transfer area with the caravan guy where you can exchange stuff among all of your people. This is only if you have Immortal Throne though. I have 6 people going so we have lots of stuff to pass along to each other.

One of my people is a level 32 and in Act III so she is way ahead of the other people.

I am not sure if she is in the Immortal Throne part or not but should find out pretty soon since she only has one more area to explore in this act.

You can even import your people from Titan Quest to keep playing with them in Immortal Throne but they can't go back to Titan Quest. That is why I have backups of all of my saves.

Once you import them even if they didn't get that far you will be continuing right where they left off. It doesn't look any different so that is why I can't tell if I am still finishing Titan Quest or am I in Immortal Throne part.

Thanks, that's really interesting. I didn't play the expansion. But I guess if we talk more about it we'll confuse folks with this thread. Sorry folks, back to the regular scheduled programming.

Repair and money - I am using what I can to get Demon skills up as the Demons cost no gold.

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 04/22/08 04:09 AM

All

My guide to The Chosen is in the Walkthroughs section.

Upon finishing the game I note that it covers more territory than Both Titan Quests. I am drawn to compare TQ and The Chosen as they both have you traveling a "path" and you visit different lands.

As an addition to my guide - You can have enough Demon control via rings and armor. Adding Demon Items to your weapon is not really needed. Around level 30 you can buy a Heavy Machine Gun. Actually you can use the Cauldron to improve this weapon to be as powerful as the top in the machine gun tier, the Wide Bore Heavy Machine Gun.

However, here is a gun that comes available around level 33 that is my choice. It is the Improved Heavy Machine Gun. If you have been hording your money you can pump this weapon up to be very deadly. Keep in mind to keep it's Durability up around 15.

Using a machine gun effectively means getting into melee range and shooting. The MG tends to "spray" it's rounds and when you are at max range only a few are striking the target. At point blank they all hit.

Having "knock Back" incorporated into it is really handy.

I hope some of you will give this game a good try.

I was wondering if I could ask for a little help. I'm in the desert, trying to get past the energy barrier by the snake idols. The clue says the arrow must his it's destiny, but I haven't had any luck. Any hints? I do have to say I like this game a lot, been bummed to get stuck like this.

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 05/15/08 03:13 AM

Since I can't remember (no laughing now) will someone tell me if The Chosen is a point and click. I never needed a walkthrough for Loki, for some reason it is easy to do, but I like it better than Titan Quest, hope they make another one.

Thanks

Maggie, Sig said here that it was mostly point and click.

Zaylskie, are you asking for Loki or Chosen? We'll have to wait until someone who has played the game sees this.
Posted By: derWalrus

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 05/15/08 01:42 PM

Zaylskie,

If you are where I think you are -

There are some snake idols on the other side of the barrier. Shoot them with a bow. (There is a bow on the ground in case you have none).

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 05/16/08 12:43 PM

Thanks for the help. I tried shoting the snake idols but couldn't get in range. Didn't realize the primitive box had a longer range than the bow I already had.
Posted By: derWalrus

Re: Any walkthroughs for Loki or Chosen: Well of Souls yet? - 05/16/08 04:03 PM

zay,

Stand right at the corners of the gate (one more step and you are a gonna). Shoot the one opposite the side you are on. I am not sure, but, there may be 2 idols. The bow on the ground has the range as the idols are just a few feet from the gate. Getting the angle right is a bit tricky. Shoot a number of times from each position you take as the flight of the arrow (as in real life) can vary some.

Good luck! Let me know how you do.

Maggie - There is a demo . . . .

zay,

Good!

I always carry a good bow.

You will find a place where you are on a wall and monsters below. Try what ranged stuff you have from different spots and take at least 4 shots. I was able to get a whole bunch of baddies this way. Only one of the weapons I was toting did any good.
