If AoD doesn't provide a Fallout style, switchboard/spreadsheet level-up system, with a sound cue, well, then I'm going to CRY !

I do not.

What's uniquely human though, is that we are both *right*.

Fallout 1 & 2 had great level-ups in the way they were modest and subtle. Your primary mental & physical attributes were basically set in stone, and numerically puny (in comparison to the modern…

The visible switchboard approach is more divorced from our current reality, more abrupt and overtly displayed, and that's why I and millions of others love it, and don't desire or clamor for an…

I heard that we can't venture outside the main city ? No wilderness areas to explore ? If that's true, it's very disappointing IMO (unless of course, there will be a BH2 !).

Much in the same way I love Pepperoni Pizza, I love RPGs with infrequent level-ups which induce modest increases in character power and abilities, especially when it's in a fantasy setting (which is…

Is there any chance that Vogel will adopt a *relatively* modern engine ? One that isn't stuck in the 1995 ? I don't mean cutting edge 3D, but something more like 2001 isometrics present in TOEE.

I am very optimistic about the potential for challenging and dynamic heroism in Dragon Age, Drakensang, King's Bounty, and Jagged Alliance 3. And yes, Obsidian does seem to have an ear to the old…

I don't think that text/words impedes the imagination that much. When reading a novel, you have to process your own imagery of what is being indicated, and each person will visualize the conceptual…

I concur. As Corwin said, many new gamers are being spoon fed eye candy in megadoses, and therefore, their processes of imagination, abstraction and conceptualization are being bypassed. The result…

It's sad that the retail outlets are so disconnected from the roots of RPGs these days. Apparently, if it doesn't look and play like Oblivion, STALKER, Bioshock, Crysis or FEAR, then it's not in…

It's true that Baldur's Gate and Fallout are considered unplayable by many new gamers, due to the neo-gamer's obsession with all matters of FPS graphics.

Meanwhile, I've taken all the suggested…

The DA team is apparently pursuing the low fantasy route, where magic, recovery, buffers and immunities are greatly reduced. I wouldn't call it realistic (well, it shouldn't be, anyways), but I would…

Yep, it seems that only the mod route is practical… there is Eye Of The Beholder as well, for NWN1. Hopefully one day, most or ALL of the classics will be redone.

I wish they'd remake some of the old classics in an upgraded graphic engine & interface. It wouldn't have to be cutting edge, 1999-2001 era graphics would be fine. It's really mostly about the…
