    That's a strange way of looking at it. As a player of every Elite since I first got my sticky 9yr old hands on it back in the mid 80's I always felt that with technological progress it would be very...

    Yeah :/ I r old.

    Mostly though I get annoyed by RPG's with lots of dialogue, cut scenes, intricate crafting systems or 'open world' exploration... which is pretty much most RPG's since 1998. I...

    Bards Tale 4 is ironically 'crawling' along now so I can't see it getting close to the 1.9m Avelone tier. I'm not that bothered, it almost seems a waste of a great writer to be involved in a Blobber...

    Mine, in this rough order although nostalgia probably creeps in for Bards Tale 1:

    1. Wizardry 6 (PC/Amiga)
    2. Suikoden 2 (PS1/PSP/Vita)
    3. Bards Tale 1 (PC Dosbox)
    4. Pools of Darkness...

    Beamdog seemed to improve their work after BG1 EE was released so theres some hope that they can pull it off, but it's still a BIIIG stretch to go from a team that remasters / optimises old games to...

    Do what I just did and read all the 'Thumbs down' comments on Steam while pretending the 'Thumbs up' don't exist.

    To be fair, it's not universally liked at all.

    Meh, now I've read up on it more you're totally right - it's not what I'd define as a pure RPG... and I've cancelled my pledge. If it wasn't already well over funding I'd feel bad about that.

    I wonder what it'll take for WoW 2 to finally be a thing? Subscriber numbers are still in the 7m region so I guess there isn't enough reward/risk tilt to make it happen yet and even if they do, it...

    Shenmue 3's kickstarter amount is going up like a petrol pump number. I never played the original games but backed it anyway because it's an RPG on my PS4 for about 20 which is a rare treat.

    I get what people are saying with FF9 but commercially I doubt it would sell half the units of FF7. While I prefer Suikoden 2 as JRPG's go, I think FF7 was the first game to really brake through on...

    Checks Steam Library: 226 games under 5 hours gametime.

    Hmmm... it's still OK to buy if they're 75-80% off, right?

    I backed Bards Tale 4 at the 'Early Bard' $20 figure but spent about an hour last night staring at the $95 pledge tier just because you get a nice big box and cloth map. I don't think I'd consider it...
