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…

I and many many others don't want every RPG element to precisely mirror everyday reality. RPGs, especially Fantasy RPGs, and especially High-Fantasy RPGs, are escapist forms of entertainment,…

I thought Obama wanted to re-implement the pre-Bush income tax rates for those whose annual income is (approximately) $80,000+ .

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.

Under ultra-right-wing, morally authoritarian governments, the US has had it's priorities all mixed up for a very long time. This is due to a puritanical/hypocritical hardline form of…

Do any countries have a low, progressive, dual, flat tax system ?

Here's my idea/suggestion :


1) Start taxing people once they are above the poverty line (approx. $20,000 US).

2) For those…

What's neat is that when you load Fallout (1 or 2), the cool Interplay logo comes on, with that heroic music, and the earth-encircling caption reads "by gamers for gamers".
