    Risen 3 looks like it might be fun. I played the demo on the first one, but couldn't get past the terrible combat system. If they have improved upon it I might pick it up when it hits a Steam sale.

    @-wildflower-: Dude, take a rage dump. We are discussing the finer points of "old-school RPGs" and which combat system is more associated with it. I am annoyed that I backed D:OS and it turned out ...

    @sSubZerOo: I completely disagree, I would take RTwP any day over turn-based.

    @kozzy1234: NWN2 had a common memory leak that would CTD every 20-30 minutes, took months to get fixed. Broken scripting that would be a 100% progress block forcing a load of an older save before th...

    @with_teeth26: Alpha Protocol was and still is a mess. NWN2 had memory leaks causing CTD and scripting bugs that would screw your saves, both didn't get fixed until the first expansion. I have ZERO ...

    Obsidian does good story telling for the most part, but every one of their games from KotOR2 through New Vegas have released as buggy and unplayable at launch. Obsidian seems either completely unable...

    I've heard from several people the story has no real direction, no overarching villain or protagonist. That combined with the combat and other issues makes me question if it is really much like BG at...

    The game doesn't really explain many of the mechanisms to tell you the truth. I figured out the skill combos pretty easily, but beyond that it is pretty obtuse. I can deal with that, Endless Space w...

    This game should be something I really enjoy. I played BG and NWN for hundreds and hundreds of hours and loved them. But the killer here for me at least is turn-based combat. It just isn't fun and it ...

    If you are going to get a kana wait a couple months until the v2 is in the states. The v1 is notorious for cursor tremor. I had one for a couple months it started out amazing, but then the cursor tr...

    Man, I must be getting old. Gave it another try and lasted 4 hours before uninstalling it out of frustration. I just can't do games with such a heavy emphasis on vehicles. I don't enjoy the vehicle...

    Eh, since it is available on Steam now I might give it a second shot. I played when it first released and wasn't too impressed, but I have been bored lately and need a new shooter to play. Plus I j...

    Insurgency is just like TI, they took the CS:S tactical elements and cranked them up to 11 to be more difficult. I have never liked the twitchy 1-shot kills of tactical shooters. If you get unlucky ...

    Endless Space is one of the daily deals today. Great game if you like TBS, way better than Civ5 IMO. For only $9 you can get the main game and the DLC (which adds a lot of content), which is a grea...
