Ooh.. those old Bridge ladies can be lethal! Gotta be on your guard around them, particularly if they try and spike the Bridge Mix.
How's your Shuffleboard game these days?

A pause or turn-based system allows a far more realistic approach to complicated multi-functional actions than a real time system. In a real time system, you pretty much frantically click buttons and…

Oh absolutely. I can't imagine making an entire party of characters using something like Fallout's system. At that point the micromanagement would become so tedious it'd overshadow the RPG aspect of…

The Fallout system, which was a modification of GURPS, is probably my favourite. It's streamlined, simple and colossally effective. Being freely able to build your character via skills, stats, traits…

Out of the list I went with Walter Simons from Deus Ex, though Bob Page might be a more appropriate choice from that game.
The 'Prince' from Bloodlines was a really well done villain as well.

I haven't seen it yet, and honestly, I haven't that much interest. Doctor Who spin-offs have never been good, and while I love Sarah Jane to bits, the premise of the show isn't particularly…

If life is a game, I really need to reload an old save! I do not like these no-save systems, they suck.

Had to go with NWN on this, but not because the boxed campaigns were good. For me, NWN gets the vote because of the sheer number of hours I enjoyed with that game playing in RP persistant worlds….

Well I wouldn't expect WAR to have a lot in common with WFRP. I'd love to see a proper computer version of WFRP though, that'd be good fun.

Yep, that's right. But you're making the mistake of putting RPG in the formula. There is no RPG in MMOs like WoW. They are action games you play with other people, that's it really.

I can't speak to the ending of ToB as I lost interest well before that point. But as to the other quests you mention, I think the various outcomes or solving methods claim is reaching a bit. Yes,…

You're not doing anything wrong, PJ, that's pretty much how the entire game plays out, start to finish. Loads of extremely linear quests that, really, you have no IC reason to do, overwrought NPCs…
