The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
I wanted a sequel to Morrowind; I got a completely different game that reminds me of Morrowind. Independently, it's good but occasionally infuriating.

A simple, solid puzzle game. More music and varied graphics wouldn't hurt.

Discuss the full version of Indy's DA or? I'll have to plead the fifth— nah, the demo playthrough fit my purposes more than enough this time, thank you.

It's fetch quest central, unadulterated and in its raw form. Want narrative and gameplay conflict from a previous age? It's right here, with Indy trading a [LESSER ARTIFACT]* for a bloody rope. The action (bandits, tribes, animals, Nazis) doesn't get a pass, even with its brevity, it just makes me appreciate Ys and its ARPG systems more.

Win 7 x64's XP Mode was great, albeit limited for gaming. I used it for the low res original ver of King of Dragon Pass, and Stars! (16bit app, looks dry but can capture your imagination if you let it). So I dual booted Win7 for the demo, there's some flickering that I somehow minimized. Indy's Desktop Adventures really has to be launched and played seamlessly, maybe some newer VM or emulation offer XP Mode's old feature. I don't think Yoda Stories has the same problem with modern Windows.

Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
Hey, thanks. I see your profile from time to time. You seem to be an avid NES player. I never even finished Nightshade. That continue method seems clunky.

The tower gives you access to a crafting mechanism that allows you to add your own buffs and enchantments into weapons and armor. It also lets you create summons as companions.

Hi there! This may be a little odd, but I added you because I really enjoy reading your review comments. They’re concise and give a good sense of how you felt in each game. I might even start writing my own now.

Do you have the dlc for Oblivion? It really adds a lot, especially the Mages Tower. Even if you're not a mage. The other ones are pretty great as well. But don't try the Shinmering Isles until you are fairly high level as it's pretty hard.

Have you ever heard of NEStalgia? It was an MMORPG made in the style of an old, 8-bit RPG like Dragon Warrior. You get to pick your class, catch monsters to use on your team, and party up with other players to explore with. I know the game was for sale on Steam but apparently there are issues with it, and the core game was free on the website, but I'm not sure if it's still up or not. Also, I didn't play it too much as those old turn-based and random encounter RPGs aren't really my thing, but I still think it was such a charming idea and I they did a great job with it from what I remember. It might be worth looking into just to see what it was like, or even play it with some friends if you end up being interested.
No matter where you go, there you are.
