  1. 1. Planescape: Torment - "What can change the nature of a man?" The Story, Characters, and Dialogue stand triumphant over all. The setting stands alone as the most unique and surreal.


    2. Fallout - A Post Nuclear RPG Masterpiece: Open-ended, satisfying turn-based combat, SPECIAL rockz0rz my soxz0rz!


    3. Total Annihilation -

  2. I rolled in there and all the raiders are tripping out. Blabbing about how I'm a ghost, the Death-Hand returned. When i talk to the leader he thinks I'm his father risen again after he had killed him. What the hell did I do differently to get this kind of reponse? I never got the standard rescue Tandi bit.

  3. It's the lousy QA work that allowed those bugs to be in the final pruduct in the first place...


    This is not always true. QA more so than not does their job aka "covers their own asses." It is ultimately the Producers decision to push the a game through with all the bugs left unfixed to meet ship dates. Remember, QA just documents the bugs. They can't fix them. That's the programmers job, and the programmers can't fix them if they aren't given the time to. The idea that lots of bugs are left unfixed due to time constraits (sometimes even "A" bug crash/locks) is a reality.

  4. Scenes I thought were done well in the film considering the source material.


    -Bilbo's Birthday Speech (most of the Shire scenes were fine)

    -Strider smoking a joint in the Prancing Pony (like deganawida pointed out)

    -The Ringwraiths at Weathertop, where the witch-king stabs Frodo. (one of my favorites from the book)

    -Moria, specifically the maiar stand off on the bridge. (Gandalf's priceless dialog)

    -Gandalf's fall with the balrog and the battle atop Zirakzigil (Glamdring the Foehammer is one cool sword)

    -Gandalf's return in Fangorn Forest (I'm back and Its time to kickass and chew bubble gum)

    -Flooding of Isengard (Ent pwnage)

    -Theodens Charge (Although not as good as in the book)

    -Shelobs Lair (Although I wish Sam used the One Ring like in the book)


    The Voice of Saruman was one of my favorite chapters from the book, the film version in the extended edition was a lot different, but still entertaining.

  5. RPGcodex (lurker/active)

    TTLG (lurker/active)

    Gamerswithjobs (lurker/unactive)

    Starmen.net (active)

    Sorcerers.net (unactive)

    No Mutants Allowed (just registered/unactive)

    QuarterToThree (unregistered/lurker)


    I might have a few more unactive ones though I can't care to remember.

  6. The majority consists of casual console sports/action gamers.


    I really would like to see where you are getting this information. A link perhaps?



    Most of it is obvious. There are more casual gamers than hardcore gamers. The console market is much bigger than the PC market. As far as the games being played the most, Sports titles (Madden) and action titles (GTA, Halo, Metal Gear, etc...) generally seem like the most popular. Toping various sales charts and the like.

  7. Easily Arda wherein lies middle-earth. This has more to do with the fact that I know more about it than any other. D&D as far as a "world" is non existant. It is a rule set. Unless you mean Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, etc... Star Wars is a given for any geek.


    Planescape, Fallout, Shadowrun, and Arcanum are all very interesting settings I would love to see used in more crpgs.


    Also the world of the Thief series was very well done. Sort of a dark medieval steampunkish camelot. Theres this whole nature vs. technology scene going on. And a secret brotherhood trying to mantain the balance of power.
