Pick me an RPG!
 
So far Skyrim, Witcher 1 & 2 are my favorites, and I need a new fix. Looking for something along those lines with a strong SP campaign.

I don't have any of the other newer titles like Dragons Age, Risen, Torchlight, Kingdoms of Amalur etc, and I could easily drop way too many $$ if I go on a buying spree :lol:

Help a guy out please, the closer to the above mentioned the better.

Thanks guys :)

I played the Kingdoms of Amular demo - yep, pretty fun - I'll look up Grimrock tonight. Thanks guys!

Out of those listed, Dragon Age would be my first pick, followed by Amalur.

Otherwise, if you have missed and are not afraid of playing older titles, then Planescape Torment's story will probably blow you away. And then you will have plenty of games to follow that up.

Not at all! I'm still pretty new to the genre so I'll have to look that up tonight - thanks!

Amalur is great fun. I need to play Planescape too. I have it on GoG, but keep ignoring it. ::(:

Dragons Age that Vardant mentioned also has my attention at this point. Time to start hunting down more demos.

Basically there are some awesome unique armour sets in the game that give decent bonuses when you wear 2+ of the same set, the problem is when you get them they scale to your current level. This combined with the fact they are ultra rare means by the time you have a whole set, you've gone way up in level, the unique armour is matched to your old level and the new generic armour is out classing the unique armour.

The developer is admitted it is a bug and is looking into fixing it. Some armour sets wont even spawn at all with the current loot tables. ::(:
The lead developer actually posts on the steam forums, you can find more info there.

I good way to get decent armour is to max out sagerafting and blacksmithing. Salvage as much as possible and craft your own equipment. I myself am using the Theives Guild armour. I waiting until later in the game to complete the quest which gives you all the armour in one go.

Another tip, is if you get any pre order armours (Mass Effect armour, DLC armour and weapons), don't open the pre order chest in the first town until mid to late game. Equipment scales when you open the chest, not when you start the game. I wish I did. The Mass Effect armour and Omni blades look great IMHO.
