Really looking forward to this. I hope they handle tactical combat better though. I don't expect JA2 level, though I sure would like it, but there are a couple things they did in Wasteland 2 that are…

That's what I was just talking about. If it's not a tabletop wargaming system on steroids, it isn't D&D. And it won't work for games that are trying to replicate classic D&D play.

But ask the man behind so many adaptations of D&D video games to ignore his emotions and he'll tell you that the '70s fantasy tabletop role-playing game may have lost its way.

I feel like I…

Honestly, I don't even see how established devs can afford to make it for that. It's not like they are college students who can work for peanuts, they have to pay themselves a decent wage. Maybe they…

Yeah, Ultima Underworld had a mind blowingly advanced game engine at the time it was published in 1992. Even when Doom shipped the next year it seemed crude compared to UW. And they even outdid…

Looking forward to this. I was surprised how much I enjoyed Wasteland 2. Didn't quite have the personality and fun factor of Fallout 2 nor the outstanding combat system of Jagged Alliance 2 (which…

Origin was the publisher – Origin Systems. Richard and Robert Garriott’s studio. They were independent when we were doing that. Around the time that game was done, I don’t remember exactly, very soon…

Sounds about right. And while BG1 was a mind blowingly good game when it was released, that was almost entirely because of the infinity engine being superior to anything that had been used in a…

Wasteland 2 isn't a polished title by any measure, which shouldn't surprise anyone one bit given its size and genre. Just off the top of my head: there is a large number of typos in the game text,…

I remember Knights of Legend. I guess I must have played that in 1989 or 1990. Wasn't at all what I expected, but I had a lot of fun with it. Darklands, on the other hand, bored me to the point where…

Interesting choice, using actual footage and live actors instead of CGI. Seems like it works pretty well, though.

I'm not seeing anything I'd call an RPG, in that. Looks like a fighting game with a fully scripted linear storyline.

Seems almost too good to be true! I've long wanted a game that did all these things. Closest I've ever seen is Sentinel Worlds and that was 25 years ago! Hope they can make it work :)

Yeah, I suppose it's hard for anyone who wasn't gaming in the early 1990s to understand how revolutionary this was, at the time:

Well, I'd agree with you about the series - minus the 8th and last installment, which came out nearly ten years too late. Might be all the drama and all the ill will I was feeling about Sir-tech by…

I'm down with the top 4. Even the descriptions seem pretty much spot on. I lose the plot with Arcanum at number 5, though. And what the hell is Wizardry 8 even doing on the list, let alone in the top…

I’m pretty sure there are plenty of people that want to play elves and dwarves [laughs]; I’ve got a feeling a lot of people want to play those two races.

Elves have no reason to exist in any game,…

Doesn't really seem right to do a "retro" review of an RPG that's still one of the best games available in the genre. Has it really been so long? And yet, what's come out since then that made FO3…

I want Fallout 4, as well. I had more fun with FO3 and NV than with every other Bethesda game, combined. I don't even care which of them does it, though ideally I'd like to see Obsidian do it, only…
