Troika needs to dust off the engine and make a real game with it.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I hope they do, the engine is perfect for an RPG, it just needs a good story.
Though chances are slim, as I gathered that they (Troika) already have a new engine up and running.
If they made as many games as they make engines ... maybe they should license a Bioware Engine™ sometime -- as these are relatively bug-free. Usually.



:luck: :luck: :luck:

Well, they did a tech demo showing off the new engine for their post-apoc game, but who knows if they'll get a publisher or a budget to actually make that game.

Could they self-finance if Bloodlines sells well enough?

I haven't tried out TOEE in over a year - do the patches make it more playable? And yeah, I stuck it out 'cause I loved the combat, but near the end I just abused the hell out of the whirlwind attack bug and that was that.

They might be able to (highly doubtful), but they wouldn't 'cause then they wouldn't have anyone to blame when they release another unfinished buggy game.

ToEE was buggy, and it wasn't fun.

Then again, I've restarted Morrowind. And for the most part I'm having fun, but I hate the skill progression system. It's boring. I do want to explore the world, and play through the plot however.

I played for 10 hours and couldn't find any of it.

I did a bunch of sidequests in Hommlet, and got no xp or rewards for any of them. The only way to get xp was from combat.

Why even have a city or NPCs?

"por2 actually had better combat than toee."

You gots a drinkings problem buddy? Hahaha. POR2 combat was a joke. While TOEE's combat was easy; it's comnbat system was awesome. The same cna't be said about POR2. Unless you hink a game which throws 10s of slow arse enemies at you repeatedly is actually the epitome of good combat. POR2's cpombat had ZERO good qualities. TOEE's combat had lots of good stuff. It just that the bad parts of the game ruine dit. POR2 had no good parts. Period. None. Zero. Zilch. Nadda.

PoR2 deleted Windows. In some ways, that can be seen as a good thing.

Having played through the TOEE demo and the POR2 full game, I can say with absolute conviction that TOEE combat is vastly superior in every way imaginable.

That's simply untrue. Doing all the quests in Hommlet can just about get you to level 2 before doing the Moathouse, plus you get one of the best magic swords in the game if you marry Meleny. (What super-genius at Troika decided that only one person in the party could get married, anyway).

:devil:

I remember that... POR2 was basically a really big virus that came in a pretty box. It literally ate people's operating systems. Talk about a bug! People on the POR2 forums were literally screaming at the devs stuff like, "YOUR GAME IS A VIRUS, I'M REPORTING YOU TO SYMANTEC!!!"

Necroposting is bad, especially when it's a two year old thread. Don't do that.
