A Bastard In Neverwinter: Part Two – Tipping The Tables

As I replay Neverwinter Nights 2, being as horrid as possible, I've noticed how much my year of playing a table-top D&D game is affecting my experience. In the last year, I've begun playing my first ever real-life D&D game. We've the mighty Jim Rossignol as our Dungeon Master (DM), and alongside me at my dining room table sits RPS's own Graham Smith and Marsh…

A Bastard In Neverwinter: Part One – Bastardly Beginnings

When it comes to reeling off the great RPGs, names like Baldur’s Gate, Planescape: Torment and Dragon Age: Origins are likely among the first to come to mind. Ask again and you’ll likely hear Pillars Of Eternity, Diablo II, Knights Of The Old Republic, Mass Effect 2... For some reason it takes far too long before the name Neverwinter Nights 2 gets a mention. But…

Baldur’s Dash: Pillars Of Eternity Beta Begins Next Month

If I were to explain how I feel about my gaming diet right now using an extremely overwrought simile, I would say it's akin to swimming in a giant pool of alphabet soup where the only letters are R, P, and G. 2014 has been extremely generous on that front, and while Divinity: Original Sin and Shadowrun: Dragonfall are splitting my time right now, I've…

Avellone, Vlambeer, Introversion On PC Gaming’s Future

All good things must come to an end. Weekends, guitar solos, and - yes - even seemingly unending conversations with a panel of thoughtful game developers. It is nature's way. And so we reach the third and final part of my chat with Obsidian’s Chris Avellone, Dreamfall’s Ragnar Tornquist, Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail, Introversion’s Chris Delay, and Redshirt’s Mitu Khandaker. This time we discuss clones, competition, diversity,…

It Lives! – Project Eternity In Motion

My old-school RPG gland's been engorged with excitement for many reasons lately, but the past few weeks have seen Torment race to the front of the pack - and not just because it's chock full of twisted sights and sounds not of this world. In something of a revolution, it also moves. Like, its pictures just sort of do things, without the assistance of a flip…

Plane Sailing: Project Eternity Is Funded, & Then Some

What's a Project Eternity? Don't ask me, I've been away for a week. Apparently it's terribly exciting though. So exciting that developers Obsidian have managed to talk the general public into giving them some $1.4 million to make their brand new fantasy RPG, handily exceeded the $1.1 million they were after and achieving it within a mere three days. Obsidian are very happy about this…

Most Able: Fallout’s Tim Cain Joins Obsidian

Good, in fact excellent, tidings for those who find themselves able to enjoy Fallouts both old and new, and for anyone who lived through the 90s heyday of PC RPGs. Tim Cain, the main brain behind the original Fallout and later co-founder of the much-missed Troika, has fetched up at Obsidian. Until this July, he was at Carbine, working since 2005 on what turned out…

Siege Three Dungeons For The Price Of One

Hrm. I'm a pretty wary of pre-ordering games personally - I like to hear at least some reception before I invest in a game - but if you were in the market for Dungeon Siege III anyway, you'll be very pleased to hear that future-buying it via Steam means you'll be gifted a free copy of both Dungeon Siege 1 and 2. Which is a…
