    i have a throat infection and im wondering if i should go to the doctor or wait for  it to pass. could it be the C-virus?

    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.

    From that article at the link above:

    Holy Moley!

    And this? Is this Dungeons & Dragons? Whelp!

    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...

  3. 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 :p )

     

    last I would say is the Planet of Apes setting (Yep, the protagonists must be those apes)

  4. 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.

  5. 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 :shifty:

     

    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.

  6.  

    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.

     

    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...)

    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.

  8. ...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......."

  9. 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...)
