I've just loaded up my copy of DQVIII. It takes about 1 second to access the menu and about 2 or 3 seconds to access the alchemy pot, and that's on an old 2002 model PS2 that I've had to repair myself at least a few times.

NWN was supposed to be the spiritual successor of BG2. Heck, in the tips BG2 gives you during loadings it tells you you'll be able to export your characters to NWN. That wasn't true D:

Really? From when they first revealed NWN it was seemed pretty clear to me that it was focused on the toolset and multiplayer. I think any plan that Bioware had to import characters into NWN was shelved with Throne of Bhaal and then the move to 3rd edition D&D.

Don't bother with Swift Learner or Here and Now, you gain levels more than quickly enough as it is.

The youngest was apparently a 5-year old Peruvian. I'm amazed that's even possible.

Crap. It's been delayed from a Spring release to 'the last half of 2009', now a simultaneous release on the three platforms. Presumably this is EA's doing because they don't want to market it separately from the console ports.

That was awful. It really doesn't help that just like in SO3 there's a pause after each characters lines, there's no flow at all to the dialogue.

And Rena looks like a seven year-old.

I bought a Gamecube for the Zelda series, I certainly wouldn't have bothered otherwise. But seeing as the GC did so poorly in Europe it was very cheap anyway, so getting one wasn't exactly a difficult decision.

Change running from 'normal' to 'always' on the options screen. That or hold shift down.

Combat isn't complex in the old Fallouts. It's the same as any grid-based strategy/rpg except with hexagons instead of squares, and calling it slow isn't a legitimate complaint either - you can turn up the combat speed in the options menu so that the enemies move ridiculously fast if you want. The character's movement speed is more than fast enough when running.

Dragon Age, I've been looking forward to it for years now and the release is just a few months away.
476  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Help me play Fallout. on: January 14, 2009, 08:06:34 AM
It doesn't matter if you steal anything as long as no one sees you doing it. There's no need to grind, just head east on the world map and stop when you reach the first green circle, Shady Sands. You should pick up some side-quests there and directions as to where to go next.

In fact, grinding is actually a bad idea because of the time limit. It isn't very restrictive, there's more than enough time to accomplish everything you need to do, but it probably isn't wise to go wandering off into the middle of nowhere on the world map.

And I wouldn't recommend either of the sites listed above. They're about as elitist and rude as it comes.

The system requirements are actually about the same as the recommended for Oblivion rather than the minimum. I haven't noticed much difference in the performance between both games, though the load times seem to be quicker in Fallout 3. My computer is less than a month old so I can't really be much help in telling you how well it'll run.

The way the game is structured, in terms of sidequests and even some of the environments, reminds me a lot of SH and SH:C. Were there any developers the same on both games?

Feelplus is made up of ex-Sacnoth/Nautilus staff, so yes.
479  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Just Beat Shining Force 1 on the Virtual Console on: October 21, 2008, 04:02:10 PM
I must be the only person to think Shining Force III is the weakest of the main series.

You're not, it isn't my favourite either. SFIII is too linear, there's little chance to explore and go back to places, and I don't like that they ditched the series composer for Sakuraba. It's still a good game, just not up to SFII.
480  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shining Force II on: October 06, 2008, 04:38:06 PM
The 'adventure' part of the game was improved tenfold especially since you can explore the entire world (instead of chapter by chapter in Shining Force I).

That's also why I prefer II to Shining Force III, it feels a bit of a step back to have the same linear chapter-based structure as the first game.
