The CRPG Addict's playthrough of Ultima VII: The Black Gate has been a long and interesting one. After finishing the game twice in different ways, he has today cast his judgement in terms of a long summary of the game and a GIMLET score of 51. While this might be disappointing for those among us who hail this game as one of the best CRPGs ever, the CRPG Addict (and Jimmy Maher of The Digital Antiquarian before him) notes that there seems to be something really special about this game, despite a number of flaws.
As it turns out, although The CRPG Addict finished Ultima VII: The Black Gate last week in a very unexpected manner, that was not to be his last post concerning this game. In fact, he has now gone back and finished the game again, this time following the main storyline as the game's developers intended. I'm sure that this, too, is not the last he's written about the game. After all, we're all still waiting for a post-mortem review.
Kenneth Kully, our Withstand the Fury Dragon who runs The Ultima Codex, has been featured on an article at Wired about how Ultima Fandom Is Still Going Strong. Based on a recent podcast, it talks about the longevity of our fan community, and other related topics of interest.
After finding a way to automate image resizing, I've started to go through the Ultima 8 Guide's walkthrough and improve a few things. I'll gradually be replaying the sections covered in the walkthrough, enlarging the images and adding more. I've started this journey by revamping the Ultima 8 walkthrough's introduction page. My hope is that I will eventually get to continue and even finish writing the walkthrough.
I've added a link to music from Ultima 4: The Dawn of Virtue to the relevant WebDB2 entry, since this old remake is currently being discussed at the Ultima Dragons Facebook Page.© by Daniel D'Agostino 2002-2020
