I can recommend the Hitman games, 3rd person shooter, as they are story-driven. Do note that the first game's control scheme is rather awkward as they map the walk and run keys separately and there is no key to hold or toggle between running and walking. Later games adopt the conventional layout fou...

I don't recall if the 2nd one was like this, but the first had an incredible selection of (spoken and written) languages, among them English, French, Spanish, German, Polish, Hungarian, and Russian, and I'm confident I missed one or two. It was actually very much fun for me to set the spoken langua...

....This is the problem i have with FPS games. I don't seem to see it near as much in RPGs but maybe i am missing something. Well, it is easier to pick up and play, and especially more appealing, to me, after a tiring day of work. I know MMORPGs are bad but single player seems to be semi-legit at l...

At the moment just taking a bit of time to enjoy my new and shiny graphics card... An Asus GTX 550 TI. Wow. That's the exact same graphics card I'm currently using for my machine after my GTS 250 kicked the bucket last year. Talk about coincidence. And btw, welcome back. I also have been MIA for a ...

I still view 'Achievements' as bragging rights as what the others had mentioned. Usually something I tend to ignore most of the time in games, similar to 'collectibles', unless said collectibles tend to boost a weapon's stats like extra damage and larger magazines as in the case of Max Payne 3 or so...

As for me personally, my interest have been veering away a bit from RPG games in general. After the Witcher 2, my interest have shifted away from RPGs to other games like Alan Wake and Max Payne 3. And if I'm too tired after work, then I can't be bothered to play any game at all. Just browse the we...

Currently playing Max Payne 3 right now. Enjoyed it a lot compared to the previous two games (not saying either one is bad, it's just that the latest one is better). ;)

Used to be one of the regulars here until the forums went through an update a month ago. After that, I've mostly just skimmed the website to look for anything interesting and just went on browsing other sites, particularly mobile phone sites and other gaming sites.

Same here. In most RPGs I've played, I tend to be sparing with the items I collect, be it potions and what not. Reserving it in case of a boss fight or end up in tough situations. I still remember having a lot of potions, equipment, ingredients, books and other items left over after finishing Dragon...

A bit of a stretch, but is it [url="http://asia.gamespot.com/crusader-no-remorse/platform/pc/"]Crusader: No Remorse[/url]? Remember playing this game at a friend's house many years ago and it looked pretty cool at that time. Pity he couldn't get through one particular boss fight halfway into the game.

As for why North America first.. simple: 1. Larger perceived market...

Square did release Kingdom Hearts first in the US before their home country if I remember...

I owe you an apology. I didn't fully understand your reply. I had strong alcohol but not the high quality which was required. I've got the good stuff and everything is as it should be.

Have you tried turning any strong alcohol into White Gull? If you don't have any, go buy some from the inn and turn them into the latter. You'll get 5 slots out of them.

Playing Modern Warfare 3 at the moment. Single player is much better than the second game and it was satisfying when compared to the latter, even though I liked it as well. Hanging Makarov never felt better. Aside from that, I am also playing with RAGE, which reminds me a lot of Borderlands, albeit ...

I have now finished Deus ex 3 for the first time and I really don't understand what all the hype is about. I have played many games during my life and it seems that there was no real innovation...
