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…

Hey Spud, what are you rebelling against?

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…

Well, I haven't had much RPG action of late, so I dipped into Trial of Champions this evening from the Deathtrap Dungeon trilogy. I'd had a couple of shots back when I bought it but had forgotten how…

Can't seemingly get into an RPG at the moment, but I'm keeping busy with more competitive MAME goodness:

Well, that's a shame then. You're missing out on some great choices and consequences. Whilst I didn't like the skill tree in W2 as much as the first game, it's still worth it for the branching…

I would say it's on a par with Dark Souls difficulty wise; perhaps slightly easier if you play a Sorcerer. I beat it on PS3 a few years ago. Given I played it with a controller rather than keyboard…
