HAHAHA Fuck trees. This thread is now about Obsidian's next RPG.



"It’s not as if people stopped wanting games like Icewind Dale or Baldur’s Gate, it was more that BioWare moved on as a studio and Black Isle went away. I hear from people all the time that they run out of the newer games to play and go back and play Baldur’s Gate 2 or Torment for the fifth or sixth time."


I hate how it's for PC only.

PC - yuck.

Speaking of PC, I'm thinking of playing Torchlight again.

As for Suikoden V, it's good so far, but the beginning section is slow, like a couple of you said (I'm currently visiting Stormwind for the first time). The writing's good, though, so at least it's not boring :-P

Classes are the very basic variety, save for the cipher.

People with plate armor and a musket. Duh.

Demi-lancers and the like, generally.

Josh Sawyer said she's not a "gun-only" character, though; the gun is basically just a single-use Fuck-you option in a fight.

EDIT: Hah, is that a monster trying to pull her off the platform by her loincloth thing?

Loincloths as PE's version of The Incredibles' capes: confirmed.

Maybe she just has a death wish, I honestly don't see a musket as being a weapon of choice in a mob fight with unarmed enemies (since you know reloading is going to be so slow). I honestly don't know why she doesn't just borrow the sword from the guy who can clearly use magic and is casting a spell.

I don't see anything wrong with taking a shot at the nearest enemy then switching to regular weapons (in her case, hammer-and-shield). Or in wearing armour while doing so.

Well aiming would be a bitch in heavy armor so she probably isn't going to hit anything with her one shot, and I also don't see a hammer, but I guess she can shield bash them repeatedly, but not really since she isn't going to be able to bend very well with all that armor on so she's going to have to wait for them to actually climb up. I mean maybe she's just cooling her heels firing her gun until they actually get to a position where she can fight them... until she falls to her death from her loincloth mishap.

Maybe the hammer is just going to randomly appear like it would in a game?

At, like, three feet from a giant crowd of heads, aim doesn't rally matter too much.

But yeah, they seem terrified of drawing that fucking hammer that they insist totally exists.

But then, the dwarf with the bow wouldn't be terribly useful getting swarmed in close quarters either, would she?

The last time I saw so much excitement over someone doing a mundane task such as swiping a card was when Light ate potato chips.

It could be a magical gun. It's fantasy, common sense is pretty much out of the window at that point.

I honestly hadn't seen a mecha show where every action needed approval until Gaogaigar. (That button seriously gets broken, and I guess replaced, every time he transforms).

Thoughts on "An Old-School RPG by Brenda Brathwaite and Tom Hall!" Kickstarter? http://www.kickstart...ite-and-tom-hal

John Romero is in there too, but you can hardly tell from the Kickstarter page.

People using terms like old-school or classic RPGs to induce nostagia so people will give them money is getting a little worn.

Seriously, they say "old-school" 15 times, and that's not counting the times they use it as the title of the game.

They don't really give alot of details about their plans, other then generic stuff that's in every RPG like "Solve lots of quests" and "Recruit NPCs"...

Don't forget that it's an old-school way of solving lots of quest and recruiting NPCs.

Saw that earlier. Super light on the details. They throw the name Anachronox around a bit, so I'll at least keep an eye on it.

FF8 gets so much worse as soon as you put in the 2nd disc. Desert Prison -> Missile Base, ughhh

BTW, Atlus announced Etrian Odyssey 4 for early 2013.

I barely remember anything from FF8 after the first disk. There was a space bit and you meet Laguna and you get a severely nerfed Edea - that was her name, right? - for a tiny bit and... other than that, I got nothin'.

EDIT: Oh, and wasn't there some pick-the-instrument minigame shit?
