Brilliant game - I completed it both on C64 and PC. I still have my original boxed editions as well. That said, I never did finish Matrix Cubed, the possibly lesser known, much less discussed…

Gothic is single player third person perspective. So think Kotor and Jade Empire and you're on the right track.

If you'd like to play a game with a female protagonist in a somewhat similar…

I wouldn't say I'm dismissing the project in itself, more so just being entirely skeptical on the concept of classic remakes generally. I certainly hope it brings in more fans for the series and can…

Lots of changes to his family and working life. Basically his imagined dream of composing at home didn't work out for him in the end as he obtained more work from other game developers. It's all…

Can it be as bad as Sword Coast Legends? What was that other ill-conceived one - Daggerdale I think it was? Wow henrique was right though - the Dark Souls influence looks strong in that trailer.

I've already completed the original game some 2-3 times, so this certainly isn't for me. I suppose it's more for the players who never got to do that or for whatever reason, can't handle older games….

Escape from the Pit was my gateway into enjoying the worlds of Spiderweb, which subsequently got me to continue with the Avernum 2-3 remakes and then the Avadon Trilogy as well. I then went further…

I'm possibly one of the few that liked the first game more. The combat simply had better, more memorable encounters, especially during the White March which was quite excellent. There's nothing that…

i'm partial to the grand ol' SID chip, so the C64 version is certainly my favourite for the sounds alone. Back in the day my disk "Side E" was corrupt, so I'd get up to the section with Tas and the…

I liked U8. I actually rented it back in '96-97 for a weekend before I'd played the rest of the series and was enthralled by the early exploration and quests in it. It barely ran on my Dx2-66, but…

After having completed both Underworlds and bought the Ascension & Ultima Collection back in the late 90's and early 2000s, I was genuinely excited to play the early games.

Hmm, not too sure what to make of this. Can it be as uninspired as "The Crystal Skull" was? :P

My favourite Indiana Jones game is certainly Fate of Atlantis. Spent a good hours playing that when I…

I've been watching this for awhile too as it popped up in some steam threads in the Underworld Ascendant forum. Whilst it does seem a little anemic in genuine content as of yet, there's some good…

I don't see that argument at all regarding console vs PC RPGs. Are you sure you read the article without a pre-conceived bias against it?

It's admittedly a very generalised overview and probably…

One good way to challenge yourself is to do contract quests which have a higher level recommendation. It might serve to make you a bit more humble in the process too. :)

In all honesty though,…

The Fairies songs were great fun but who can forget Karzak's great response:
"Can I fall on my Axe now?". Karzak was awesome. :)

Please don't show these songs to Larian. They might get inspired…

Given what InXile did with Bard's Tale IV, I wouldn't really trust them with the Stonekeep IP (a game I loved as a teenager) as they're likely to want to experiment and turn it into something…

I think you missed the point. I'm not suggesting the Underdark is not a great dungeon - on the contrary, it's an AD&D staple and has appeared in quite a few games. It's notably fantastic in BG2, the…

Maybe. As artificial as a solution as it might be, perhaps increasing the difficulty might help in this regard. I'm hoping there are enough old school fans complaining to Larian on party size though…

That's all cool, I don't mind disagreement. I think you're probably right on the likelihood of such a mechanic being adapted, but you never know with Larian. I think it's an exciting idea and would…

1) Well, I'll offer an alternative viewpoint. Four characters in a D&D game is too few and is plainly insulting to me coming from a Goldbox background. I certainly wouldn't care if the combat is…
