To know why JA2 is so great, I think you'd have to play JA2. The various pretenders afterwards aren't worth much. (This JA3 looks like it could be good, though.) JA2 is like Fallout 1&2 /…

Sure, but NWN (and probably most of the rest of the games you're referring to) wasn't isometric, it had a 3D perspective. The quote from the article is: "A lot of it comes down to upgrades to the…

Not sure fixed perspective is a good way to describe it. It's more like there's no perspective at all, no camera. In "isometric" games, things don't get smaller as they're farther away.

No, not true. Games like D:OS and Pathfinder actually are isometric, even though they are implemented using fully 3D graphics. NWN isn't. Also see ATOM RPG which is implemented using fully 3D…

Original Sin 1 had an option to enable camera rotation (was off by default), and it came out 3 months before Wasteland 2. Don't think I can personally name anything earlier, but wouldn't be that…

Looks terrible. And with the type of gameplay we've seen, probably shouldn't even be covered on this site.

Supposedly the last major update to Windows 10 will be the 21H2 update later this year, but it will get security patches until it becomes unsupported in Oct 2025. So pre-2018 CPUs can be reasonably…

So it seems that when Microsoft first put out the Win11 announcement, there was some intent of there being a "hard floor" of TPM 1.2+ (with no CPU requirement), and a "soft floor" of TPM 2.0+ and a…

Pretty sure the 4th gen chips have PTT, so if your BIOS won't let you activate it, then that's a motherboard/BIOS issue not a CPU issue. (Not that it helps you…)

I hadn't seen that "supported CPUs list" yet, but I'm pretty sure that every CPU on that list supports either PTT or fTPM, so the whole TPM thing isn't an issue at all. I believe everyone who has…

You don't need a TPM chip, for all modern Intel CPUs you can turn on PTT in your BIOS, and all modern AMD chips you turn on fTPM. Your CPU would have to be truly ancient (>6-7 years old) to not have…

The biggest problem is chroma subsampling. The industry standard for TV/movies is 4:2:0, which throws out a lot of color data and will make fonts look terrible. To get full picture quality when…

There's plenty of room in the world for procedurally-generated games, but yeah a truly good RPG needs to be fully hand-crafted.
