Thanks!
Real life has been rather hectic, so I had to scale back on things like surfing forums, but hopefully they should be a bit calmer now.

But the Wasteland series is about as far from an MMO as RPGs go.

The Dragon Age series does that. Dragon Age 2 had a neat system where you got bonuses both for doing what the companions want, and don't want, signifying friendship and rivalry. It was not the…

I completely agree with you. I really was not a fan of early 3D graphics back in the days, and found games like StarFox, VirtuaFighter and so on to look worse than games using sprites, and when the…

I would argue that JRPGs actually took a step back in playability with the PS1. Now you've got longer loading times, long flashy, often unskippable animations and of course horribly low poly models….

Unless we can get a standard, in the game folder, in a sub-folder called "save files", and with a backup in the cloud.

To me at least, a big question here is "who gets the money"? (And also "what does the money get used for). H.P Lovecraft might have been a bit of a racist, but if I buy a book by him now, does he get…

I know that you said that C&C: Ultimate Collection was not a remaster, just The Last Decade, but the reason why I mentioned remastering in my post is because the situation would be very different…

As far as I know, Ultimate edition is just The First Decade + the games that were not part of it, they did not really put any additional work into it. Remastering something is quite different from…

The first decade was not a remaster, it was just a re-release of the games in one package, with some minor compatibility tweaks to make them run well in XP.

Yeah, Tales from the Borderlands was probably their best game yet. I liked the first The Walking Dead more, but trying to look at it more objectively, I would rate Tales from the Borderlands higher.

I would not say that spinners is a deal breaker for a game, but I've never seen the point of them. They're an annoyance, and outside of very niche situations, they don't really add anything positive…

Things I'm glad we (almost) never see in modern RPGs

So I've been playing a bunch of RPGs this year, some old, some new, and there's a bunch of things that seem to be somewhat common in older RPGs that I'm glad we almost never see anymore.

I've only played the first game in the series, and while it's not pretty, and sometimes it feels awkward to play, it's actually really fun. Not a must play, but a should play, in my book. It's more…

As for the game itself, it has an interesting concept, but none of the pieces fits…

Yeah, I do. It was not as good as Descent, but man, those graphics were amazing (for 1998). That and Incoming were the graphical powerhouses of that year!

Yep. There's a skill that allows you to see what the radar blips actually are, and if you do so, you can shoot at them, even if no mech is close enough to actually "see" them. LRM boats (mechs with…
