    For best nostalgic results

    I suggest you either get really really stoned off THC

    OR

    do some LSD

    I really REALLY enjoyed The Fall: Last Days of Gaia Reloaded, with the english fan made patch!

    For those that haven't got a chance to play it yet. If you ever played Soldiers of Anarchy, the Fall is made by them and is very similiar. However the game is much more about roleplaying and character development, than straight tactical strategy title, think Soldiers of Anarchy meets Fallout and you get the basic idea. If you've never played Soldiers of Anarchy , I guess think Jagged Alliance 3D, meets Fallout

    The setting is very Fallout esque. Set in a post apoclyptic setting no civilization to speak of, and a few remaining communities barely hanging on. After you home town is burned to the ground you wander into a town that's building a reputation as re-establishing law and order in the wild lands. You quickly get recruited to restoring order in the area and soon find yourself leading a team of 5 other soldiers to restore peace, while making peace with what happend to your parents and finding what remains of your familiy in this wild frontier. I'm really enjoying this one once I got into it.

    Downsides sides are, they never made (and will never release) an english version, so I had to buy the german release and install the fan made english mod. Problem is you have to deal with german speaking with english subtitles. It took about 3 re-tries till I got into it, around the time I was about a hour in...and finally got hooked by the story and otherwise great title.

    The game only other lowlight are a some non criticial bugs, some rare poor translations (nothing like the previous versions which were buggy as hell), the staight forward combat nature might put some off as well, though I thought it added to the focus it was putting on the roleplaying elements and made the game a smooth play.

    The game otherwise so far has played rock solid. Considering the dearth of party based RPGs I'm really enjoying this one!

    When it came to creating a living world rpg complex and rich, The Fall did not skimp, in fact this is the pinnacle of the genre IMO! Day ad night is modeled and people go about their daily lives, sleep, work, play, and seem to have a diffirnt thing to say depending on what they are doing. They tons ways to interact with the world, loads of equipment and items , and mutliple ways to resolve quests.

    You can customize how you look, your skills and stats, and your party and who's in it. Fairly open ended play (sort of like NWN2 with new areas opening up as you go but find yourself hitting the old areas as well for your tasks).


    The game also has a branching story arch at least twice as far as I can tell, though I haven't played it through again to determine the impact of these choices. I also found a few after game events, since it lets you play the game after you've completed the games primary quests. Nothing major, but definetly a nice touch. I found in many cases that quests would have multiple paths and options to complete (i.e. combat, persade, mail man run).


    With 23 zones to explore and 70 quests to play out, as well as all the other little touches in stories in non quest (like the man at night you catch him cheating on his wife, when you talk to wife while he's out with the woman she'll admit that she knows about, but during the day they seem like a totally loving couple sharing found on the bench lovingly talking to each other...is just one of the many examples I've found) this is really a amazing rpg.


    I loved it so much I created a Walkthrough for the game! :D Took a lot of time to compile the data, a lot longer than I thought it would...and it still needs work. If people are interested in it please let me know what you would like to see...and feel free to contribute! :)

    Hmm, I used to review games for SG+, Gamesdomain, and a few others. Or maybe the fact that I so love the game, I'm glowing about it (for the most part)

    Well, you could have posted the FAQ and such on the official forums. Oh wait, they appear to have been closed down without notification along with teh Silver Style and TF home pages. Thanks again Carsten.

    Were can you buy the game. I'm looking for the Russian Version... I speak English and Russian so might as well get the official version instead of the fan translation...

    It looks really good, too bad I can't speak or read Russian.

    They wouldn't by chance have made an English version or anything similar would they?

    After reading the Google Translate edition of the FAQ (which is not even close to coherent English) I think I figured out the game is mostly non-linear with multiple ways to solve quests. But there likely is a heavy emphasis on combat. Also the player character (at least one of them) doesn't level up because at the start of the game he is already a highly trained military man.

    Definitely has good graphics. The only thing I would complain about is the stiff pose by the PC in some of the screenshots.

    I think they translated the first one a while ago. Maybe they'll do this one as well. It usually takes a while.

    The game could be fun, but it's very buggy, unless they fixed it, and uses a lot of unnecessary profanity. Never really cared to pick it up.

    I played 3 years ago one game that is very similar to Fallout! It have same fighting system, but the graphic is more like in Fallout: Tactics. You start game with two characters (male, with chaingun, and female), and you are in desert, after walking you encounter with some scorpions, and left of scorpions is some kind of bunker or something (i don't remember clearly). I forgot the name of game.. Please help!

    Age Of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships

    Is a pirate action RPG. It is similar to fallout in that:

    Uses SPECIAL (but used as PIRATES Power Insight Reaction Authority Talent Endurance Success)
    has perks, but they arent as cool as fallouts.
    you can bang whores

    I think its an excellent game especially modded. Its like a 4x space sim, cos u trade, raid, smuggle, steal, kill, treasure hunt, save damsels in distress, the list of things you can do goes on, all open ended.

    But its also a regular RPG with a few big quests. (not a whole lot, most of the game is the open ended building of your character/s or fleet.)


    And it can be HAAAAAARD. Which is nice considering all these baby hand holding please remind me to inhale/exhale games lately.

    I dunno about you, but when I played MH:RR, I almost doused my computer and set it aflame after about half way through this game.

    It is horrible.... so horrible *weeps*

    Looks cool... that's about it.

    well since the followind months, a hunger for rpgs have grown in me, i currently installed old classics like baldurs gate (1 with 2 engine and 2), fallout new vegas, and fallout 2 with some mods, but damn its not enough.

    besides i dont want to install oblivion if im gonna smash some buttons to kill something i rather play painkiller, im thinking of buying planescape again (i borrowed my original copy and never saw it back) damn that game is legendary, i was also thinking about the original xcom.

    so what games can you guys recommend me?
