Vanguard: State of the Game
It's been quite some time since the Ten Ton Hammer crew gave a report on the state of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, and what better place to do so than this week's edition of Forever Fantasy? Few games come to mind that had more of a rough start than Vanguard, but time has been kind to the game and its improvements from opening day are vast indeed. Join Dalmarus as he takes a look at why the current state of the game is still one of the best kept secrets in the industry.
Being able to counteract an enemyÂs spell may not sound like much, but when youÂre battling a healer designed for a full group and you miss countering a spell she casts that brings her back up to full health right before your group finishes her off, youÂve just allowed a serious world of hurt to rain down upon your party. Never underestimate the benefits of a well timed counter-spell.
