The RPG Scrollbars: In search of urban fantasy

There's a real urban fantasy gap in the gaming industry, and it's never made much sense. We see a thousand Tolkienesque fantasy games a minute (rough napkin calculation) and the future's typically so bright, even the lens flares need shades. Yet when it comes to that line where the mundane meets the magical, mostly what we've had for the last few years is false hope.…

Goodbye-O-Ware: Writer David Gaider Leaves BioWare

After seventeen years in the scribbler's hotseat, writer and designer David Gaider has left BioWare. Gaider joined the RPG-builders back in 1999, putting in some time on Baldur's Gate 2 before moving onto Knights of the Old Republic.

Mods And Ends: Pick ‘N’ Mix

This week, a few mods that I've been monitoring but haven't had a chance to have a proper go at yet. In some cases, that's because they haven't been released yet, in others it's because the hours in every day are sadly limited, and as well as playing games and writing about them, I very occasionally sleep. I even venture outside from time to time,…

Good Old Games Adds Baldur’s Gate II

As expected, Good Old Games have added to their catalogue Baldur's Gate II. Which means they've now got a pretty definitive collection of BioWare and their spin-off's RPGs from the turn of the century. It's the Complete version, which comes with the main game, Shadows of Amn, and the add-on pack, Throne of Baal. At over 200 hours long, it's probably the best ratio of…
