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.
486  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.

That's cool. But can't you at least agree Fable II's world is a breath of fresh air for modern gaming? I mean, I played through and liked Mass Effect and all, but that type of setting, and that more realistic looking Sci-Fi/shooter style of gameplay has been extremely overplayed ever since the last generation of games/consoles.

It isn't in RPGs, in fact sci-fi RPGs are far and few between.
488  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Vandal Hearts as downloadble title only :( on: April 14, 2009, 01:07:12 PM
Personally, I really didn't Vandal Hearts 2. The dual turn system (or whatever it was called) was a terrible idea, producing some of the most drawn-out and tedious battles in any SRPG I've played. The first game was okay though, if a little generic.

Lemon-meringue pie is delicious

490  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Shining Force? (Sega Teaser) on: April 10, 2009, 07:01:03 PM
We aren't getting a Shining Force IV, just as we aren't getting a Phantasy Star V. However, I heard that it'll be a top-down strategy RPG, only battles are done in real-time. But I heard that from a friend, so take that at face value.

That's Shining Force Feather, which was already released in Japan. This is something else altogether.
491  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIII release date revealed!!! on: April 10, 2009, 07:46:54 AM
The Saga series and Legend of Mana too.

I can honestly say I hate Inomata's designs.  An A+ for being unique... but some of them are just down right atrocious. 

I couldn't agree more with this. Example: Tales of Eternia's male protagonist wears a boob tube.
493  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Muramasa: The Demon Blade & a debate! on: April 09, 2009, 08:12:35 AM
The only thing that bothers me about RPGFan's coverage is that sometimes there's a lack of consistency. I don't have a problem with covering action/adventure games like Zelda as long as other similar games are covered too. Okami actually has more RPG elements than Zelda and follows a very similar structure but was ignored by the site.
494  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New tri-Ace RPG on: April 08, 2009, 08:08:34 AM
I just hope they hire some new writers this time around.
495  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPG Annoyances/Pet Peeves on: March 31, 2009, 04:33:15 PM
While there's cases where they're tolerable or even handled relatively realistically (Sue), a lot of the time it just seems that they're there to fulfill some silly quota.

A generic RPG cast has a very high chance of containing:
-hero dude
-mage/healer girl who may or may not be the chosen one
-tough guy
-ninja girl
-mysterious guy
-annoying brat

You could almost be describing Tales of Symphonia's cast with that list.
