I'm holding off on trying it but that's pretty typical of Bioware/Black Isle/Obsidian design, in my opinion. They front load content on the assumption that either most people don't finish games or…

Yeah, prolly cuz they tried to do a Bioware knockoff but forgot to bother with decent writing and voice acting. If they'd made it a dungeon crawl instead it might have worked better. The game…

The Dark Eye was pretty good. I ran out of motivation to continue with it about halfway through but they had a lot of good ideas. Just seems like most of those good ideas never lived up to their…

The "biggest problem" was the lead designer. He created a sandbox without creating a game, just like he did with Ultima Online. Oh, I think I'll log in and craft items for a couple hours, then check…

Thanks! I didn't even know it was available online. If I go another round with F:NV I'll see if I can find it :)

Often doing a KS first guarantees easier means to own your IP even with publisher help: writers do it all the time by releasing graphic novels first to stake their claim on the idea.

Really looking forward to this. I hope they handle tactical combat better though. I don't expect JA2 level, though I sure would like it, but there are a couple things they did in Wasteland 2 that are…

That's what I was just talking about. If it's not a tabletop wargaming system on steroids, it isn't D&D. And it won't work for games that are trying to replicate classic D&D play.

But ask the man behind so many adaptations of D&D video games to ignore his emotions and he'll tell you that the '70s fantasy tabletop role-playing game may have lost its way.

Yeah, Ultima Underworld had a mind blowingly advanced game engine at the time it was published in 1992. Even when Doom shipped the next year it seemed crude compared to UW. And they even outdid…

Origin was the publisher – Origin Systems. Richard and Robert Garriott’s studio. They were independent when we were doing that. Around the time that game was done, I don’t remember exactly, very soon…

Wasteland 2 isn't a polished title by any measure, which shouldn't surprise anyone one bit given its size and genre. Just off the top of my head: there is a large number of typos in the game text,…

I remember Knights of Legend. I guess I must have played that in 1989 or 1990. Wasn't at all what I expected, but I had a lot of fun with it. Darklands, on the other hand, bored me to the point where…

Interesting choice, using actual footage and live actors instead of CGI. Seems like it works pretty well, though.

I'm not seeing anything I'd call an RPG, in that. Looks like a fighting game with a fully scripted linear storyline.

Seems almost too good to be true! I've long wanted a game that did all these things. Closest I've ever seen is Sentinel Worlds and that was 25 years ago! Hope they can make it work :)
