Which games would you like to see resurrected?

Posted in news, pc rpg classics  on December 17th, 2008 by: ian

I’ve found an article on IGN called ’10 franchises we want resurrected’.  It’s got some real classics in here, at number 10 we have Master of Orion – one of the best space 4X games ever (Master of Orion 2 was the best of the series)!

The one pc rpg game is at number 8 – Planescape: Torment Which games would you like to see resurrected? with a storyline has hasn’t been bettered even now.  You take on the role of the Nameless One in his quest to regain his memories.  The game is heavy on dialogue, features a unique setting and the kind of deep characters that are incredibly rare in any game – where else can you travel with a talking skull?!

Anyway, if you want a really deep rpg that probably hasn’t been bettered then have a look at it.

Have a look at the article, and let me know what you think, what games do you think they missed that should be remade?

Arx Fatalis released on GOG.com

Posted in pc rpg classics  on December 12th, 2008 by: ian

It looks like Good Old Games have added Arx Fatalis to their catalogue of gaming classics.  In case you don’t know, GOG.com is a site where you can (legally) download some of the classics of yester-year.  Prices tend to be under $10 and includes the Fallouts, Gothic and all kinds of non-rpg games.  If you’re interested in old classics then I can highly recommend looking at it.

Arx Fatalis is a dungeon crawling rpg in the style of Ultima Underworld, where the player is imprisoned in a subterranean world where several different races live in uneasy coexistance.  It’s quite a fun game, even though the storyline is of the generic ‘save the world from the evil god’ type.  It has plenty of atmosphere to it and decent puzzles, so if you’re looking for a dungeon-delving escape it may be worth giving it a try.
