BETHESDA OFFICIAL FAQ: BATTLESPIRE (COMING IN 1997)
Q: Is it going to have as many bugs as Daggerfall?
A: Ha. Not this time. Battlespire is just entering preliminary beta testing and will not ship until it is bug-free.
RUTSKARN UNOFFICIAL FAQ: BATTLESPIRE (RECORDED 2016)
“I looked, and there before me was a pale horse. Its rider’s name was Death, and Hell followed close behind him.”
My internet’s been out for two weeks. I’m not saying that’s Battlespire‘s fault. I may have blamed it, in a moment of weakness, but I’m also not saying that it’s intelligent enough to hear my outburst through my microphone–and I am not claiming that a videogame can recognize, contextualize, deliberately provoke and thoroughly enjoy human pain. That would be silly.
The exorcist agrees with me.
I didn’t bring any new screenshots with me today–I’m not quite ready to move on. Technically, I haven’t made any progress since the last session. Which is not the same as saying I haven’t played the game; I’ve played it for hours. I just haven’t progressed.
I haven’t saved my game in two weeks. And there’s a damn good reason for that, as I’m about to share. It just so happens I’ve entered the No Scum Zone.
Allow me to explain.
