I doesn't go on in real time, of that I'm quite sure. I think the maximum is a couple of (in game time) days. Maybe three. I haven't played in a long time so I can't be sure. I suppose that wasn't…

in it's final form Robocop isn't entirely a cyberpunk movie, but it was inspired by cyberpunk and pre-cyberpunk (Blade Runner was, according to the script writer, a main influence).
I agree with…

Robocop is quite a strange beast, but it definitely takes a lot from cyberpunk. I think it has something to do with Paul Verhoeven's style. Starship Troopers was widely criticized by the campiness…

Not really a connaisseur, but a William Gibson fan, the rest of the "mirrorshades" crowd is almost unknown to me. Though I also like some of the authors that are credited as cyberpunk precursors,…

Being interesting or not, as always, is a matter of taste. About the X-Files, well, I did like it then ('till the 3rd season, after that not so much), but now it just feels passť. Cyberpunk also…

I think that there was enough room in DH:HR for politics, sociological speculation and even a touch of the (always light philosophical approach, after all it's a videogame) "what makes us human"….

I always wonder why people who use to say that "Fallout 3/NV is like Elder Scrolls with guns" will never claim that Pillars of Eternity is Wasteland 2 with swords… Well, the videogame nostalgia…

I was going to write something, but I noticed that I would be repeating DArtagnan. That's it. Except the part about books, those may be verbose, it depends on what you are reading. But walls of text…

I you are not in a hurry you can wait for the Skywind mod. If it ever gets done, it will run Morrowind in Skyrim's engine. I feel the same about the game, but I think the slowness of everything -…

This wasn't directed to me, but anyway I feel the need to reply. Old school cRPG do not appeal to everybody that loves role playing. I loved in the past, and still do love role playing (taking the…

Maybe that's not what you are saying, but the expression itself is quite clear. Anyway streamlining is not a bad thing, it makes games much more fluid, cinematic and entertaining. Too much rules just…

This here is not so straightforward. It depends on the classics. I love KOTOR; but I wouldn't touch Baldur's Gate for various reasons, one of them because it is too much fantasy for me (too much…

Ok, granted, games have lesser skills, lesser spells. But where does that mean the game itself is dumb? Or the players are dumber just for that streamlining? I never played the "older" elder scrolls…

Morrowind was a difficult game combat-wise. I don't like the game, but that's mainly because I think the setting was made for people who are fantasy fans and, after so many medieval looking high…

I said it was a reason, not necessarily the only reason. Yes, games have been simplified, they are now easier to play without having to read a manual, for example. Does that constitute a dumbing down…

I look at that question on a different perspective. First of all, I don't really think that trend still exists. At least it was temporarily put out of action when independent games started to be…

Is it really good? I started it, felt that it nailed right a few things but it felt like a lot of grinding would be necessary to accomplish something. Now I'm finding hard to go back to DA:I. Also…

The two things are usually conected, a good story with bad characters may work, but suffers from it. The reverse is the same. Anyway, I don't think ME2 had a bad story and it did certainly have…

I'll go even a bit farther when it comes to this point. Exploration and immersion ARE the main factors when playing a pen & paper RPG - the GM may have the best story ever, but if he is imposing it…

Yeah, something like that. And a LOT of grinding. There was also Risen 3, but as hard as I try I can't get past that humourous side of the game. Still waiting for Raven's Cry to quell my pirate RPG…

A great year for a certain kind of cRPG, a very bad year for another kind of cRPG. People who don't like old school turn-based tactical games got DA:I and some hack n' slash. Bloody hell, it was the…

The first - and until now the only - tactical RPG that came out of Kickstarter and that got my attention. Specially Dragonfall. Hope they keep up the good work.
