Not interested in Black Sigil...

I would really, really advise staying away from Avalon! It really, truly does become unplayable...!

This isn't just a "sounds like a minor annoyance; I can live with it" thing. When you spend more time looking through inventory screens than actually playing the game, THAT'S a problem!

Don't say I didn't warn you!

From the 58% 1Up Review of Avalon Code: "The game is at its worst when you build up an extensive library of code fragments and need to assemble specific "recipes." You can only keep four code chunks in your personal queue; the rest have to be placed in the grids of monsters, NPCs, and equipment until needed elsewhere. When you're trying to find that single 1x1 "freedom" fragment you left somewhere amidst hundreds of pages, paging through the virtual screen is a lot less enjoyable. Especially when you're doing it for the tenth time in a given dungeon because you need to change a weapon's attribute once again in order to activate an elemental switch or whatever. Before long, every cute little animation of the book magically rewriting itself chafes at your nerves; every stray bit of code you've misplaced becomes your worst nemesis. What seems novel and unique when you're managing a few dozen pages with 3x3 code grids becomes the least entertaining onus imaginable once you hit 300 pages of 4x4 grids."

"The final insult? Each time you move a chunk of code around, you expend a small amount of magic. Nothing is more infuriating than spending 10 minutes rearranging a boss' code, only to run out of magic as you're about to place the last fragment -- well, nothing besides dying as a result, which forces you to start over and muddle through the whole process again, except with only half your max HP and magic."

Alright. Warning taken.

I'll get a used copy at Gamestop just to check it out. And then return it within seven days!
