I thought I might both start and finish Act II over this long weekend; but I spent just a little too much time dodging traps in the Gauntlet of Shar and now I'm just overly annoyed with the game.
I think I need a break.
Possibly until next weekend; possibly longer.
This game is a stunning and towering achievement. But the trap mechanic is just hateful.
I don't like traps in real D&D. I don't like traps in this, either.
Traps are just the game designer's way of shoving your finger into the Random Punishment Box over and over and that is not what I am here for.
