Ok...so i just bought POR (pool of radiance). Very nice graphics..shit all roleplaying, there are hardly any NPCs, the storyline is very faint and half way through the game i feel like what ive bought resembles more of a dungeon romp. Despite Arcanums poor graphics, the roleplaying has been far more enjoyable then running at the pace of a sightseeing group around dungeons. ONE other thing is how much i appreciate the ability to switch between turn based, fast turn based and real time in arcanum. not all battles require turn based mode...infact its damn annoying when you dont want to spend 10minutes fighting a few zombies that walk slower then turtles...one at a time until they reach you and actually begin battle. Since this ive been desperatley looking for games that dont lack in roleplay..but have more appealing graphics. The only games resembling this that ive found seem to all be online roleplaying games that require monthly subscriptions to play (eg everquest and the likes, which brings to mind the suggestion of horse riding in arcanum or somthing? am also looking out for rpgs which have that) which would be fine if i HAD cable and lived in the states...over here in Aus..a mere 10bucks a month transforms into 20bucks a month ontop of cable which is rarely availible here and VERY costly. If anyone knows of any such games, please let me know?
