by Dhruin, 2006-09-05 00:58:00PC.IGN has kicked up a PC Games of Fall 2006 overview, selecting key titles from each genre to highlight. The article starts with Dark Messiah under the Action banner, while the RPG category sees Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales, Gothic 3 and NWN2 briefly previewed:
With the third game in the series, Piranha Bytes is hoping to bring the same kind of positive progression to the gameplay with new combat features, improved user interface, and even more open-ended options. Care is being given to create a storyline that transcends the all-too-familiar good versus evil conflict. choices will be presented that not only supply the chance to help the orcs, but they'll be presented in a way that will make the idea sound like the right and just one. What looks evil at one point may actually look good towards the middle of the game. The new combat system has some key additions that should help with accessibility. These include a soft lock, a tweaked combat system, and a ten slot quick access bar at the screen's bottom.On the MMORPG side, ArchLord, EQ2: Echoes of Faydwer and WoW: The Burning Crusade get the nod.
