Hah, the author of that and myself agree on the classification of games like Skyrim and Witcher 3 (tending more towards action-adventure than RPG) but for completely different reasons. To him, it's…

Yeah, it felt completely like an RPG to me. The combat wasn't really missed, probably even forgot about that while playing it. It was kind of like playing Planescape Torment or Torment: ToN with…

It's MMORPGs that are out. They were the new thing 20 years ago. A couple of them still presumably make a lot of money (WoW and FF14) but it's kind of a niche thing now. None of the top…

I enjoyed the two I played, just saying they weren't the masterpieces of classic RPGdom that everyone hoped they were gonna be. Other companies like Obsidian, Larian, and Owlcat did a much better…

Might not be a bad idea to skip it when it's released in 2021 too. Wait for 2022 when the patches/expansions are done and the "Definitive Edition" is out :lol:

I think, as far as we know, he's not working on anything game-related now. Portalarium is dead since they sold off Shroud of the Avatar to Catnip Games, and I think Garriot has no real involvement…

U7P1 still easily the best RPG ever, in terms of its greatness and memorableness at the time of its release. EA bought Origin a few months after its release, and it was all downhill from there. Not…

Sounds good, but there's nothing in there to indicate that W4 won't become a first-person popamole action-fest with cinematics every 5 minutes. Which is kind of the worry.

While Larian is my favorite developer, I don't think our best hope is "modernized" games like D:OS1 and D:OS2. I think it's people making great games in places where the labor isn't so ridiculously…

Neither - PoE1 just wasn't as good as people had hoped/anticipated, so many of the people who bought 1 didn't buy 2.

But 500K isn't bad sales numbers for a game like that anyway. With the…

I guess this article thinks "Obsidian becoming Bethesda" is a good thing? :lol: I saw the title and figured it was intended as an insult.

Unless I'm missing something, as far as I can tell it includes neither. Maybe they're mailing out discs later on? If not, I guess you're just supposed to get your Steam key via email or whatever,…

If they're going back far enough to include Wizardry 8, then JA2 should still be #1.

The allegations are pretty much nothing except a creepy set of text messages and a (married?) guy apparently interested in picking up lots of women.

Isn't it just a stretch goal, though? What if it isn't reached? Is it something you're going to be doing later down the line either way?

Usually I'd back a game with gameplay like this automatically, even if I think I might not ever end up playing it - just to support the concept. But I can't support an RPG with icon graphics. Maybe…

That's a pretty slick way to do it, I like that it has a basis in the game world ("your character has beginner's luck") rather than being something imposed entirely from the outside, without even an…

It's funny how many companies (and forum posters) try to deny this. More respect to Owlcat (as if they needed anymore) for telling the truth on the topic, although I suppose it's true that it's in…
