Man, anyone else feel like the Reach campaign took a nosedive in New Alexandria?

I'm thinking of getting back into LoTR Online, now that it's free.  I gave the free trial a try some time ago, but never upgrades to the full game.

I was thinking about getting into LoTR, too. :] I downloaded the free trial about a month before it became free. Just kinda forgot about it. I will have to take a second look into it...

As of right now, I'm playing Epic War 4 on armorgames. I love me big cannon dwarf.

Started up a new game of Darksiders on Apocalyptic mode. Probably shouldn't have selected to start out with the Abyssal armor, since it takes all the challenge out of Apocalyptic.

Sorry.. the last FF was the FINAL one for me. 20+ hours and can't get out of the tutorial.

Tell me, Sabby...does the mission giver remind you of Zordon from Power Rangers? :P

Honestly, no. I was curious about that ever since the ZP review, and after hearing him, no, it's just a masked voice (like all Assassin missions have) that doesn't sound anything like Zordon, aside from the fact both are altered digitally.

I will say this though, this is one of the most beautiful games I've ever played, and I don't just mean graphics. everything comes together so well... the weather's effects on the foliage, the way fire spreads, how explosions tend to completely vaporize all nearby leaves yet send the fawns/small trees nearby whipping from the shockwave, how gunfire tears branches (especially impressive when running away in a forest) and my Lord did I mention how awesome the fire is? Because it is... awesome, that is.

Only thing that kind of detracts is the vehicles... they're very bland in comparison, as far as detail and damaging go :/ strange, everything in the game looks obscenely good and interacts/explodes/burns beautifully, but the vehicle combat makes San Andrea's look technically stunning.

Had a somewhat unexpected increase in spare time, resulting from cuts to my hours at work, which means a decrease in income :(

To distract myself from my quasi-poverty, I've been playing Breath of Fire III, Steambot Chronicles, and the occasional round of Need for Speed Underground...

Kind of looking for a good dungeon crawler, but I keep finding roguelikes... I may be a bit of a philistine, but I just can't get into a game that uses text characters instead of graphics :\

There are some excellent older fantasy RPGs out there, not necessarily dungeon crawlers. Some I recomend would be Neverwinter nights 2 (I hear the first one was good to but I never played it), Baldur's gate, Planescape: Torment, and Icewind dale. Dragon age is also a recent fantasy RPG I would recomend and its probably easier to find too

I loved the BoF series - I even liked Dragon Quarter, which was sort of a bastard child of BoF.

Dragon Quarter is the greatest game in the BoF series, this has been proven with science!*

As a game on it's own, I found it to be a novel concept, what with the inverted 'dungeon', limited play-time/saves, and expanded areas in re-plays.  I think I used my dragon powers twice in my first playthrough, both times required by plot.

As a successor to the other BoF games - about the only connection was the character names (Ryu and Nina) and the Fairy Village.  The 'dragon' aspect was terribly down-played, and you were actively encouraged not to use those abilities.

I would like to see a follow-up to it, either following in the timeline or a new BoF game, but I fear that it broke the franchise by being too different.

That's okay because you'll be punished by the gaming gods for your cheating ways. I can live with V.G. karma... -_-
