EuroGamer - Coming Attractions - RPGs
Looking ahead at the coming gaming year, Eurogamer has a roundup of some of 2008's RPGs. It's a little heavy on the spiky-haired variety but Fallout 3, Fable 2 and Rise of the Argonauts make it in:
New from Codemasters comes an action RPG featuring Jason and his magic fleece and a better frame rate than the Harryhausen film. Playing as the king of Iolchis himself you get to fight alongside great heroes of mythology such as Atalanta, Achilles and Hercules (not played by Sorbo, sadly).
As lead designer Charley Price told us last year, Rise of the Argonauts is all about storyline, character development and decision-making. There's not too much menu fiddling and inventory management, basically.
We're also promised "real-time, lethal combat unlike any you've ever seen in an RPG". No more stabbing enemies 20 times before they fall over; stick a sword through someone's heart and the consequences will be as immediate as you'd expect in real life. Or Lewisham.
Rise of the Argonauts is out later this year on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
