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.

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.

Shouldn't this be in the computer RPGs section? I know it's being released on consoles too but Fallout is first and foremost a PC RPG.

For those who aren't aware some of the developers at Obsidian worked on Fallout 2.

As far I know, it doesn't have any RPG elements, it's a pure strategy game. Hence the lack of coverage here.
495  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: POLL: Fable 2 or Mass Effect on: April 18, 2009, 01:16:03 PM
How many hours would everyone estimate the game would be including all sides quests and DLC's?

My last save is at 40 hours but I'm normally fairly slow at getting through games.

Grim: You know you can choose other character classes, right? Playing as the default Soldier class is probably the least interesting option, there's a lot more variety to the gameplay if you choose one of the other classes, especially those that use biotics.
