It annoys me that RPGs made in America or Europe are all lumped together into one all-encompassing 'WRPG' genre and then dismissed as all being the same. I don't like tri-Ace, but I don't assume every other game made in Japan will play similarly.  Many 'JRPG' fans would love BioWare's games because of the strong characters and stories, but for some odd reason they're lumped together with Bethesda's stuff, even though they're nothing alike. And the main complaints about Mass Effect (bland art style, dull side quests) can't be levelled at their earlier games either, just look at some screenshots of Jade Empire or try some of the side quests in Baldur's Gate II.

I have to admit I wouldn't keep funding something that's been in development since 1999.  You'd need a hell of a lot of money to pay that off.

It's worse than that, they first announced it in April 1997.

They should have done what they did with Prey and farmed it out to a developer actually capable of finishing a game.

Hardly any RPGs nowadays actually require level grinding, it hasn't been necessary in most games since the Playstation/Saturn generatiion (excluding optional bosses). Even Nocturne didn't require much grinding, and that was the most difficult turn-based RPG for years.

Finished GTA IV with 82% complete. It's disappointing that The Lost and The Damned is a 360 exclusive, you'd think that Microsoft wouldn't be against a Windows version seeing as they seem to be pushing GFWL into every other new PC game but apparently not.

Also finally defeated Cave Story's final bosses after about 50 tries. I found that the 'final final boss' was actually easier than the first of the four.

GFWL is a mess, it was only a couple of weeks ago that one of the updates rendered GTA IV unplayable.

So, Broken Steel is out and apparently it's broken on the PC. Also, it doesn't look they put much thought into the new perks, because many of them seem to be totally unbalancing. I don't see why they needed to make it easier, it's easy enough as it is once you find certain weapons and armour.


Looks like it's been pulled from Games For Windows Live now.

Well, the ages of characters in JRPGs always seem to be completely off, so Auron being 30 isn't much more implausible than Balthier being 22 and Zidane 16.

I like both, but FFX shades it for me because the pacing is better. I'm glad that they opened up the areas in FFXII, but there are too many huge field locations. This would be fine if there was anything interesting to find there, but for the most part there isn't.

I can't kill Cave Story's final bosses. Four bosses in a row with no healing or save points is just too much for me, especially when I can barely make it past the first with an acceptable amount of health left. Great game though, I find it remarkable that everything was made by just one person, even the music (which is very good).

Still at GTA IV, the missions are getting better and better the more I play. I still think its main flaw is that you spend too much time in the early part of the game running errands, the developers should have balanced it out so that you get more interesting stuff to do at the start rather than just in the latter part.

Many of them seem to have got in by default rather than any reflection on their actual quality, which just goes to show how poor this generation has been so far.

FM=Front Mission

This will let you play the PC version of Fable using a 360 controller:


It uses Xpadder, which lets you assign key presses and mouse movement to a controller. It works well with games like Cave Story that normally only allow movement with the analog stick and not the dpad.

21 hours into Grand Theft Auto IV. In-game stats page says I'm 42% done.

Incredible game. Can't believe I waited so long to play it, but in a way I'm glad. Get to experience it on my own without talking about it with friends/reading about it online and potentially ruining the plot and scenarios. It may be my favorite game of this gen. It's an immense experience.

I think it's very good, but a step back from San Andreas. I'm still playing it myself (49%) and perhaps I'm looking through rose-tinted glasses but I remember there being a lot more variety to the missions in SA. It seems lke nearly every mission is 'go here, kill x.'

I agree with Eusis, they should be merged. The computer RPG forum is mostly dead apart from indie RPGs, and most games are multiplatform these days anyway.
