No PC game costs anything to the end user if we want to be brutally honest about it. Shafting your honest consumers with DLC which should be in the core package won't end well and I say this a…

Granted that is flame bait. Maxima mea culpa. Allow me to hang my head in shame. And if I ever behave is such an immoderate manner again may I be forever banned from the hollowed halls of RPG watch….

I've made reasonable examples of Paradox's exploitative DLC practices and it's you're prerogative to disagree Roq, but I can't see any less eye to eye with you here and let's avoid flame bait…

I salute you sir, that's something I've never achieved despite M&M 6 being in my top ten personal favorite RPGs of all time (for the dungeon design alone) and having started over at least six times….

I've no idea why SRR is drawing so much critical praise from game journalists. If a middle or eastern European developer released more or less the same thing as "Die Genericski Cyberpunken" than…

Yes the editor should be part of the core game. It's a very basic feature. Especially considering the RPG aspects to CK II and its focus on personalities. It's like releasing an RPG where you can…

No. MMORPGs are a twisted mockery of everything good and pure about CRPGs. I'd sooner staple my scrotum to an enraged tiger than climb on the MMORPG treadmill.

I loved the unabashed, charming, and straight-forward high fantasy setting of these games, but The Dark Eye ultimately bored me. It wasn't a bad game by any means, but there was just something about…

My current war with the Liir is basically a game of wack a mole with their colonizers and constructors. They're making little effort to counter attack. Also it bugs me that the AI keeps spitting…

Milking their core audience for every last penny via DLC probably helps. Crusaders Kings II ruler designer alone is five euros and it's a very simple thing that should have been included in the…

Released in 2011; playable in 2013. I held off purchase until the 'enhanced' edition and even then I still couldn't play it due to the almost daily patches invalidating my saved games. And while the…

Got to agree with you there Fnord, 28 euro is twice what I'm willing to pay for a digital board game. Hell, Alien Assault (http://teardown.se/) is free and is more or less the same thing sans the…

Really? Because I'm playing Xenonauts right now and that game sure could benefit from camera rotation. And true 3D line-of-sight. And a 3D engine basically. Hell, Silent Storm was released over ten…

The popularity of Talisman was due in part to the fact that it can be played, and understood, with a 'few' beers. Blind luck is a plus when you're blind drunk. I can't imagine anyone during my…

I prefer G2 without NotR on some levels. The rule changes in NotR really hampered character progression and 90% of the weapons are meaningless due to the ridiculous stat requirements. Actually scrap…

Gothic 2 was the sweet spot of a 'modern' open world RPGs for me. Size really doesn't matter if there's sod all novelty in it. I hate to pick at old scabs… but vanilla Oblivion is the worst…

Well I'm not sorry to see them go, but I find the Ubi M&M universe a bit sterile in comparison to the slightly goofy everything-and-the-kitchen-sink fantasy of the NWC era.

I see they're also implementing facial expressions and battle damage on the character portraits. Looks like they're sticking close to the old games. Is the inclusion of Arcomage too much to hope for?

He lost me a point one, realism, because it's irrelevant when dealing with individuals. There are always individual exceptions. For example, Brienne of Tarth in A Song of Ice of Fire is an example of…
