  1. Well, hardly to say it‘s better than 3, but I like 4 more than 3, it's more interesting for me, even with its imbalance and terrible AI. And I found the class development mechanic most fun of me. It's always token a place in my every PC.
  2. Actually even The Elder Scroll could be played in 3rd person view. And Risen (another series from the Gothic developer, though I personal not likely recommended it).
  3. https://www.gamesradar.com/square-enix-gives-away-2-free-tomb-raider-games-on-steam-and-asks-us-to-stay-home-and-play/ Seems it's SE who give away the games, steam had nothing done with it.
  4. well, from so far I knew, if you don't feel any serious difficulty on your breathing, better not go to the hospital which normally increase the risk of infection.
  5. Drizzt,Bruenor and Catti-brie? And as so far I could remember,last game bears dark alliance title seems got a not that good reception...
  6. Have been playing Might & Magic 7 for a period of time. Finally got my both light side party and dark side party into the celeste and the pit, next would be on their second promotion.
  7. Just got tower of time for free on GOG, plus former wasteland 2 and postal 2 giveaway, a pretty great Christmas/ new year gift for me.
  8. Well,before I could actually see the true gameplay,I would hardly say OLE ! But still the name made me bit blood-boiled.
  9. At least the trailer told nothing, but I remember long long time ago, there's a picture indicated the era of IV should be around WW I / WW II
  10. AOE IV ? Well, I never expect that would happen....
  11. A Dawn of the Civilization period setting (early Sumerian Culture Style,The 'Creator' still could be contacted, mix with some Cthulhu elements maybe...) and Also a Dune like setting (Sand-covered planet, several space noble houses , Galaxy Empire/emperor, and of course not forget the sandworm ) last I would say is the Planet of Apes setting (Yep, the protagonists must be those apes)
  12. Dunno whether the Halo War count or not, but there will be a new sudden strike which exactly is a RTS. As for the whole genre, still can't say anymore...
  13. Skill based. Well actually I really like skill proficiency based system, so what the players got depends on what they've done, as for classes, I much like what have done in Heroes of M&M 4 's heroes development system, so it is the skills decided the classes, not skills based on classes, so you became a class because you choose the actual skill path. Further more the Divinity OS also made another sample that the class only mean initial skill set, late on in game it's up to you.
  14. Tarant of Arcanum for sure, a modern city, really modern; and I feel the power of the science! Well, really like the steamrail (underrail), kind of reflection of real life cities; and I'd like take bates' mansion as my own Sigil of Planescape, it's just amazing, such a huge city filled up with so many bizarre stuff. And every districts got their own special charming part.
  15. Like to see sequels of both Arcanum & VTM, but .........
  16. These armor looks nice, I hope in game it will look more shinning. And the compass looks amazing!
  17. Normally, I would like to pick companion to getting better involved in the story. But things always happen like that: 1. I don't like that guy. 2. I really want a character that I knew from elsewhere to go with me.
  18. Weak story lines are a consequence of developing for a "larger audience" and not necessarily a result of developing a sandbox / open world RPG. (See below...) http://youtu.be/JweTAhyR4o0?t=4m30s Edit: The Might & Magic series was essentially open world and had some good story lines. No, I'm not talking about since they were bought by 3DO and whoever owns them now. I'm talking way back to MM2: Gates to Another World and the two Xeen installments. And it's not just about the story, what stuck with me is puzzles like this: Well...I never played the M&M 2, but I do know how open the world was in M&M series. Even you can use some magic like " walk through the fire"(sorry I forgot the name...) to get some place blocked by the lava. And I also have played RPG like Arcanum and VTM:Bloodlines, they've also got some open world/sandbox things.And I loving that, too. But all of the games have a difference from totally open world/sand box games, most of they are story-driven, and they are RPG first, than the open world/sandbox. So what I am trying to say is not object the open world issues, but never put that as the first. At last we need a RPG, not a Minecraft or GTA.
  19. Open world RPG like TES normally got a problem ---- weak storyline or weak story telling. If I want a really open word sandbox game, I would rather play GTA. The RPG what I like should have a good story, even a philosophy depth(Planescape). And mix with a bit element of open world exploration ---- like Baldur's Gate and Arcanum.
  20. ...Is it very hard to getting start BG2? I start BG2 with little knowing of the control and no idea of any of D&D rules, never played BG,as well. But it's just take a few moments to getting start. IMO, everyone knows how to play RTS games should've known how to get on it(just a little bit different in controling, rules? oh, I not mean that...). By the way, that guy should just play the games that fulll of "dadada...""papapa....""Ahhhh......."
  21. Well, N years ago, lots of people said to me, PC game is dead, the future is console's. And then time past, PC games still stand, and I even saw some article was saying the tablet game is shaking the console gaming market, console will died... Actually, imo, none of the type of the gaming will die, just as the different type of players are still alive . You've mentioned AAA games, well, actually, not only the one type of (AAA) games are meet the bottle neck, it's the whole AAA games got that problem, not only PC or Console. An AAA game spend lots of resource, but with a high risk of failed. Plus, now we hardcore players are not the main part of the market, that's why lots of lighter games overwhelming. And now the trend is multiplatform, you can't say this game or that game is made for PC/Console, sooner or later, you gets the game on the platform you want play on. Also, some games' PC version even realsed later but gets more features and better graphics(like Crysis, DMC, just need you got such a high standard PC.). Last, the kickstarter, even it's still have some shorts, but we would like to see the future it bring to the game development. It's not only for indies, we can also see some product like PE and Torment on there(if you don't think these two are AAA, all right...), all you need are you got the abilities and willing for making good games.(trashes and trickers go App Store...)
