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.

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.

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.
491  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.

It's real-time with pause, like BG and KOTOR.
493  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Looking for a Good Rpg (like everyone!) on: September 26, 2008, 06:51:26 AM
i thought Skies on the GC was the best version? less encounters, better graphics?

It is, but the music is slightly worse, it isn't an exact reproduction of the DC version.

It's great for the first few hubs, but some of the areas near the end of the game felt like they were rushed. It's particularly annoying if you chose to focus on non-combat skills early on and then end up with a weakened character once you're forced to hack and slash through the latter stages. The
Code:
sewers
were not in the slightest bit fun.

I hope this is actually going to have towns to explore like the main series and not just an endless series of battles like most SRPGs.
