I had the skeleton, cultist and minotaur. Reading through this thread I guess that means I had 2 tanks, although I didn't really think of the minotaur as a tank when I had him, more as a damage…

I kind of like that we have to rotate a lot of different soldiers in and out of combat because they get injured. It adds to the variety and means that I get to play with different combinations and…

The first of the sorcery games follows the book pretty closely, although it does have some additions and enhancements to take advantage of the media. For the second and third game they start to…

I don't necessarily think it's the best strategy RPG ever, but it's a fun game that I have fond memories of. My enjoyment of it is based more on the humor and quirkiness of it than on amazing…

Well a bigger issue is that Starward Rogue has not been reviewed on any gaming websites, not even by the gaming website that posted that news article. All of the positive reviews they are talking…

Kind of like the original Dark Souls. Fans fixed it within days of it's release, but even years later the developers still haven't made the slightest effort to address it's problems. I believe that…

I generally dislike weight systems, but it does depend on how well it's integrated into the game and whether it creates interesting decisions or just annoyance. In some games you can only equip a…

I can't speak for Battle Brothers, but Darkest Dungeon is a very different type of permadeath game because you can't lose the game, only an individual dungeon run. And individual dungeon runs are…

I think the issue is less cost and more that permadeath games usually have fairly short playthrough times where you only see a small amount of available content, to make all the restarting more…

While it can be a bit grindy, those are not normal fight lengths. I'm not sure if the guy was playing slowly in order to narrate the video or something like that, but most fights last about 3-5…

I disagree with They Live. I've been playing on and off through beta, and with the live version and I think almost all of the changes have been good and that many of them have been necessary. However…

Have to agree with all of the haters on this one. The combat was wierd but I could give it points for being creative and different. But the lack of any exploration for most of the game, the lack of…

Has anyone mentioned the Etrian Odyssey series? They are DS only, but for anyone who has a DS and likes semi old school gaming, I would highly recommend them. I particularly love how you get virtual…

I don't think I've seen anyone mention Dragon Quest. I was a big fan of DQ 8, but many of the other titles were quite good as well.

DoomRL is a game that shouldn't work, but somehow it just does. I was really impressed with how they managed to create a really outside the box roguelike that was fun and unique to play, and which…

I remember the house of ballads idea as being interesting, but the problem was that the story behind their quests wasn't really integrated that well into the gameplay. Maybe there was a lot of text…

Dungeon Crawl is considered one of the best roguelikes as well, and it's free. There is no overworld though, I'm not sure if that's good or bad for you. There is a lot of depth but games tend to play…

The "story" was a big part of what made the game for me, but it's not like it's a gripping plot full of twists and turns or anything like that. It's just that it's a fairly unique setting where your…

ADOM was reasonably story heavy for a roguelike, which isn't necessarily saying much. However, that could be a problem for a game that you were repeating over and over again repeatedly. There were a…

It's kind of in the ok to mediocre range. I wouldn't recommend it, but I wouldn't strongly warn anyone away either. If your desperate for a turn based RPG there are worse options. The story feels…

I'm having a lot of fun with it. What really makes it is the mission design, the missions are flavorful and varied and often feel extremely tense. I like the upgrade tree as well. The mechanics of…

I'm fairly certain that the only version of HoMM in which the AI could put up any fight in a balanced multiplayer game was HoMM 1. In all of the others it was generally a pushover to varying degrees,…

I didn't really like the conversion bit in HoMM VI myself. I missed having the mix and match of troops from different kingdoms, rather than one big homogenous army. Although the homogenous army did…
