Discovered another RPG gem.





Re-release of Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind for Xbox. The Morrowind Game of the Year edition includes the original roleplaying game plus the PC expansions Tribunal and Bloodmoon. Gamers who already own the original Morrowind can use their save to play the expansions, and those who've never played the mammoth RPG will be able to enjoy the original game from the start. Tribunal takes gamers to the capital city of Morrowind, called Mournhold, where they'll meet the other two god-kings of Morrowind, Almalexia and Sotha Sil. Bloodmoon introduces gamers to the frozen Island of Solstheim, where they'll experience the harsh permanent winter of the island as they face off against ice minions, trolls, and wolves.

I played morrowind + expansions many times (pc version). The original game is VERY lacking, I mean how many animals does one want to kill? Even the daedra are all wimps (why oh why didn't they put a deadra lord into the game?) Still it's fun to hunt for artifacts and try out all the mods (the mods make the game great), or even make your own. The bloodmoon expansion was a lot of fun, but far too short. Same goes for the Tribunal expansion actually.

Me, I prefer Daggerfall (completed it like 16 times...). It had shit graphics and was loaded with crash bugs (fixsave tool required, or else you can't even finish the game), but there was something about it that just yelled COOL. Maybe the fact that you could turn into a vampire or a werewolf, or that you could be a filthy thief, or just the general story which was pretty good. All that is possible in Morrowind + expansions... but it's just not the same

Well, I'm upgrading my pc in the near future, so then it's on to Oblivion

Games like the Morrowind series are nice games, but you need to almost lock yourself away and not see anyone or doing anything to play them. Wish i could commit myself to a game such as that now, but when i do i end up feeling guilty.

I've knocked up a HOL entry for it with quite a few attractive Amiga screenshots from the game:

In the entry you will find links to the developer website where you can d/l demos for both Amiga and PC. I'd especially like to know what people think of the Amiga demo version and how it compares to the PC version (and also Diablo if a comparison can indeed be made).
<bump>

Anyone actually get the Amiga demo of Fortress of Fear to work? Anyone got any comments if they did?

Been playing the demo of the Settlers 2 remake (another classic that will never die). It so totally rocks that I'm going to run to the stores to get the full version. It's Settlers 2, only better looking. No gameplay changes at all, except for LAN/internet multiplay. Even the hearty "yippie!" of the geologist is still there http://www.3dgamers.com/news/more/1096485260/

Picked up a storming classic today for only 5UKP. Hyper Streetfighter II for PS2. A great beat'em up from the days of the SNES. I remember playing this for hours. The PS2 version features five fighting styles, every classic fighter and as an added bonus the original 1994 SF2 animated movie. Gaming heaven.

What about Street Fighter III? If you like SFII you will love Street Fighter III! I got it for Dreamcast, but PS2 version is on some compilation, too... best one IMO is Street Fighter III: The Third Strike. Yes, they did make three versions of Street Fighter III. Just as you would expect from Capcom.

There's some crazy youtube clips SFIII world cup fights...

I always thought the characters off this were just really naff... I mean the big boss was a big guy with small pants... ... it just didnt feel too good to play either... The best SF style games were either Capcom vs SNK 2, or Street Fighter Alpha 3.... damnit, Dan rocks! >

...On the RPG front, I'd have to recommend Fallout 1 or 2 (1 for less bugs IMO), ... probably the most fun RPG classics I've tried (on the PC!)

@ Snake

How faithful are those capcom titles to the original arcades? Particularly I am interested in Ghosts 'n Goblins, Commando and 1943.

uh, I dunno, it was taken over 3 years ago :-P ... In England so that explains the dark picture with lots of wind.

If you want faithful arcade things, why not just emulate the arcade with Mame or something?
