RazörFist offers his assessment of his favorite RPG series of all time, with enough F-words to be mistaken for a marital spat at the Eddie Murphy estate. Note: Both Arena and Daggerfall are currently FreeWare! Here's a self-installer for Arena that should work on modern computers: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Arena:Files And for Daggerfall: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Daggerfall:Files Ending Music: Skyrim Metal cover provided by SBeast64.

Spoiler-free. Hope you enjoy it. I blame the quality* of this review on sleep deprivation & hurriedly trying to get back to play Skyrim. Probably not going to mean much to you if you're brand new to RPG gaming. Genuine congratulations if you manage to get through this video in 1 sitting. Needs an intermission. Issues since upload: More regular crashes & quest bugs. UI is starting to get on my wick. Phobia of numbers/stats makes details vague (what does dual-casting do? What is a 'level 10' enemy?). Enchanting & crafting negates loot-hunting. Too few outlets for money spending. Selling loot is a chore (Banks & 'letters of credit' back, please). But most importantly: Very little portrayal of consequence for your status / actions. Bugger. Mods required. :) *(Assumption based on my being too tired to judge. Possibly ranty, holier-than-thou, unfocused, with less time spent on image editing. I don't usually deal with reviews of this length. I didn't talk enough about combat (dual-wielding, spells). Is revealing the very general nature of quests a 'spoiler'? I don't know. I should sleep. I keep clicking on the bed and resting for 8 hours, but I'm still tired. I'm sure comments will reveal further shortcomings).
Attractive, with some of the finest and most refined gameplay; but otherwise streamlined half-way into submission, which is enough to make me wonder why I'm not playing Eastern Sun instead. How?; Could it be Blizzard's micro-management of it's players, the 'safe' loot or the streamlined character customisation and gameplay? Could it be all three? Could it be more? Could it be two and a bit of the above? With something else? And more? COULD IT?? At least I won't lose 1000's of hours to Diablo 3 like I did to it's younger brother. I could even go outside. I won't, but it's important to know I could. Webcam footage quality varies because Pinnacle Studio despises me. Almost totally agree with the 3 videos linked within: http://diablo.incgamers.com/blog/comments/whats-wrong-with-diablo-iii#more-21455

A curious, nostalgic, admirable effort, but only as absorbing as similar games from ages past. If you loved Stonekeep or Dungeon Hack, you'll adore this. I didn't, so I don't.
Just a rough first impression to kick myself, yet a-bloody-gain, back into Youtubing.
Orcs Must Die 2 next. See my 'review' of the first game here:
Also looking at 'Crusader Kings 2'. Promising, if I can penetrate the early walls of text.
