I'll be reviewing the 360 version at least.

Thanks for pointing out that Kmart sale. Now we'll have a review.

This universe was created when they were still on the island, so everyone would appear there as they did on the island.

Deus Ex is an FPSRPG. Freedom Force is a real-time strategy/pause based strategy game with light RPG elements. Icewind Dale I and II are both Infinity Engine games.

All are good enough for the list. All are worth playing in fact.

No Deus Ex?
No Freedom Force?
No Icewind Dale I or II?

This is on one of our staff member's Amazon Wishlist. So expensive to get a boxed copy, but yeah this is a freaking great adventure title. Based on an AWESOME short story too.

Awesome to see a sci fi fan! If anyone is interested in reading the short story the game is based off of, here it is: http://www.surfturk.com/endoftheworld/ihavenomouth.html

Edit: I played Okage. It was a very enjoyable game, however, I did play it when I was younger so I can't say if I have rose tinted glasses on or not.

It's on my list. I've never played it, but yes, the story is awesome. I wish it wasn't like a hundred dollars so I could have the chance to play it...

I highly recommend the story for those you can't get ahold of the game though. :)

I've had strange episodes during which my perception is distorted before. It's happened while playing RPGs or any other video game, but only a few times. It seems to be triggered by sounds. Nothing has come of it though. I would say games are very safe unless you have a condition they can aggravate.

I've wondered that too. Same with anime much of the time. Anybody know?

JP, that's what I've thought the flash sideways scenes have been for a while now, and I think we're right!

And I really hope Jacob and the MiB are not good... or bad, actually. I will be sorely disappointed if it turns out to be a battle of good versus evil. But yes, like you say, they're both manipulative and Jacob even seems moreso at times because he never explains anything, just expects his pawns to do as they say.

Interesting what you mention about Jacob not being God because he can't absolve sins. Maybe Jacob is more like an analog to Jesus though, in which case... could Jesus absolve sins? I'd think so, but maybe not. I did think that Jacob's dousing Richard in the ocean was reminiscent of baptism though.

It seems that the theory that the island is trying to keep evil contained could be true though, and is true unless Jacob is not 'good.' It's not the worst thing that the creators could do with the show, but it isn't the best. I'd still like to see that maybe Jacob isn't right in keeping the MiB there.

Also - what Jacob said about bringing people to the island to show the MiB that people are naturally good and capable of change makes sense considering what has happened on the island. I'll have to think about it more, but it seems plausible. Hopefully the creators comment on how Jacob had no right to do that, to use people in his little game with the MiB.

There definitely seems to be a Nature of Good and Evil theme dominating now. Are humans innately good or innately evil? It's an old philosophical debate, but not an uninteresting one for sure.

Let's hope they pull off something surprising and profound. And, let's hope the best characters get awesome roles in the final episodes.

To me what's important is a balance between story, dialogue, exploration, combat, and other stuff.

A game can be good if it doesn't have one or more of them.

But open-world or mission based, it matters not. The balance of individual components is what does it for me.

And soil my crown? I think not.

I would liken myself to the 22-year-old, adult, already written a novella and several short stories age range, even though I do like a Pokemon manual now and then.

Now that you've insulted me, what is it you're asking me to do?

75% is average. Think of it like a grade. It's a C, which is average.

And average means average. Not special. Playable, but flawed. Enjoyable to the average RPG fan.

It sounds like pulp to me. I'd pass if off as such even if it had a theme, unless it was somehow apparent that it did have one.

And I'd say people prefer books of about 250 pages. Seems average.
