    Do what ya gotta do man! Eventually I will get around to bugging you to fix all the grammar and spelling errors you added into my two entries! (Ultima 1 and Dungeon Hack.)
    And for the record I still try to keep my Might and Magic 3 save solvent on my Turbo Duo just in case I decide I must grindblob like like 1991-93.

    Just want to note that I sent the revisions for Dragon's Dogma a few days ago.

    Just found this thread and I wanted to say that this is all great :)

    One game I know is missing from the gdoc list linked in the first post: Heimdall 2. It's quite different from the first game, but more accessible and I feel like it deserves a review. I still have my original floppy disks of both games (no idea if they still work...)

    I never played those, but aren't them more of an adventure game?

    The first one is a "normal" RPG and, in fact, is already present in the gdoc list.
    The second one is more "adventurish" with a sort of hack&slash combat. If quest for glory and diablo are reviewed, I believe heimdall 2 could, too

    Heimdall 2 is just typical action adventure. It's a cool game, but it shouldn't appear here.

    It has stats IIRC.

    Edit:
    [​IMG]

    I'd say it fits minimum RPG requirements. Although I'm not sure it warrants a separate entry - probably better to do a single review for both parts.

    That increase automatically each time you level up, so the only relevant stat is 'level'.

    By this logic no ADnD game should be on the list.

    Which I kinda agree with.

    Filthy Microfag DOS peasants, bow to the AMIGA MASTER RACE.

    But yeah, a review covering both games seems fair enough.

    Mm apart from the name I don't feel like the two games have much in common. If the choice is between being reviewed together and only review the first one, I'd go with just review the first. I don't think anyone (apart from me) cares anyway :D

    Great! If you can send some .png screenshots you think illustrate well the game, be my guest. Otherwise, I can take them myself. :)

    :hmmm:

    I've been talking about this for 2 and a half years, how you only found out?

    And thanks, but VD is handling Prelude, and I'm not sure Pathologic classifies as an RPG...

    Is there any chance you will finish this in 2016? The project really crawled to a halt as I see it, there are barely any updates for it.

    Wut? Early this month I released a new version, with 50 new pages... it won't be done in 2016, but I'm keeping the same pace since the very start.

    If this project had been advertised extensively, I would have joined the Codex a year-and-a-half earlier in order to write the reviews for Dungeon Master and Morrowind. +M

    As things are, I didn't even notice this project's existence until felipepepe asked me to write a review for Faery Tale Adventure after I posted my latest playthrough in the screenshots thread.

    The corporate media owners of the establishment want to keep me down and promote their pro-popamole candidate.

    But I think this world is ready for a critical revolution! One that isn't afraid to call W2 decline! One that will stop the 0,1% of RPG developers from taking 90% of kickstarter funds and metacritic scores!

    :ehue:
