are these really the only rpgs scheduled for a 2005 release?  i could have sworn there were more than that.  >_<

thats rather depressing.  :p

We tracked 31 full releases...seems a fair bit to me. Some won't make it, some won't get finished at all, some others will pop up and lots will be crap. You expected more than that?

I've learned that it's best not to have any expectations of great cRPG's in the 21th century. <_<

For all the genocide, ethnic cleansing and wars the 20th century will be remembered for, at least we can thank it for FO1, FO2 & PS:T. :">

It seems like the better the technology gets.... the less games we seem to get...

That's not right by any measure :blink:

Bah. Games have tended to get better. I expect that overall trend to continue though 2004 wasn't the best year. Some people have nostaligia twisting the past.

I'd say games get better graphic wise and gameplay wise, but not necesarrily story wise. I agree with Volourn though, though I can't say much about nostalgia. Well, the original Super Mario on Nintendo brings back some fun memories, but other than that, no.

"but not necesarrily story wise"

true. Story wise it's always a crapshoot. Espicially sicne story has nothing to do with the tech and is almost 100% opinion based on whther someone likes or dislikes a story.

i was looking forward to goldenland, but the looooooong time spent translating the game into english has me thinking it's vaporware. my guess is the game isn't doing that well and the publisher is balking. given this, and the fact that the developers never visit their own message board (not since october), i doubt we'll see it this year, maybe never.

volourn, you've had good luck with supporting comments from the masses lately... perhaps your form of "clarity" is catching?

I'm looking forward to TES4. Morrowind was pretty awesome, and I'd like to see how they follow it up.

Don't let Lucozee bother you, he's Dutch. People from Holland speak better English than most people from America. :">

Please, by all means accept my humble apologies if made you feel bad about yourself...
I am the one who should be ashamed...(But I still do think they look cute. I can't seem to find them on my keyboard though :devil: )

Edit: Well, this is a great place to improve your English (that is, if you don't pay a lot of attention to grammatical errors ;) )

I hear you. One would think that being neighbors and all we would do better at understanding each other. Ah, the bitter irony... :)
