I know it is difficult to describe, but for me the feel is one of the most important elements of a game (especially multiplayer). For example, I do have Team Fortress 2 but it has a very different feel from the aforementioned games. I do not care if it has a campaign or single player as long as it has good multiplayer.

At the moment I'm playing Swtor with friends (to be honest it makes me want to play some wow again^^), though essentially as we play it it's just a coop rpg.
So I remembered that NWN offered coop. I'm not up to date with crpgs, are there any newer ones which are good and allow you to complete the campaign in coop mode?

I suppose the obvious answer would be NWN2, if you aren't aware of it.

Other than that, I have no idea, but having just started a co-op NWN campaign I'm interested in answers as well.

Can anyone recommend some let's plays for me to watch? I don't care so much about the genre of game, though I don't want horror, I mostly just want to listen to decently funny commentary on some games. Any recommendations would be taken with gratitude.

Does anyone have recommendations for a management sim type of game? The sort where you run a company or sports team or something? Either free or fairly cheap would be nice, too.

Hm. If transit management sounds interesting, I've actually really enjoyed Cities in Motion 2. The in-game documentation isn't great, but there's plenty of tutorial resources on the web.

Thanks for the suggestions! Evil Genius looks interesting for sure, and I like the idea of Cities in Motion 2. I'd tried OpenTTD and found it a little fiddly for my taste, but Cities in Motion looks a little lighter.

Played both, both are good though I remember that there were some tactics which made Bubble Tanks Tower Defense 2 a bit easy (and once you have a good mega tower it becomes easy to get a mega mega and add four more which mostly consist of buff towers and then endless mode really is almost endless.)

The RPG mechanics and that it has characters and a simple story are nice, though a lesser tower variance than some other TDs. But still a good TD.

I'm looking for a new MMO to play. I've played WoW (hardcore raider, got burned out), SWTOR (finished storyline with one class, had enough at endgame) and recently TERA (just got bored at the end as well). I tried downloading Aion but the graphics and UI just burned my eyes so I stopped playing. I've decent things about Rift and LotRO, anyone have any ideas about these? I'm looking for something where I don't need to raid hardcore to progress at the endgame, even if it does take a lot of grinding to do it. I'm also mainly interested in PvE rather than PvP.

Ive been looking as well, but with the difference of wanting it to be free. Most of the new F2P MMO's have obnoxious cash shop problems, but Im trying out Dragon Prophet right now and its not too bad. Just a suggestion to look at.

I'm playing Rift now, and I am absolutely in love with it. It's borrowing all the best from WoW, and then grew it in ways WoW would never have the balls to do. It's also F2P, and Trion is being stupidly fair and reasonable with the pricing on the pay stuff. I seriously cannot recommend it enough to anyone who likes MMOs.

I started on the F2P, and loved what I saw. Plenty of people are digging the game entirely free. I can talk more about what I like if you want.

What are the F2P restrictions on it? Is it just things like bagspace/characters slots and the like? Is there any in game way of trading for the cash shop items? I know in Tera most cash shop items weren't bound so you could buy and sell using in game currency provided SOMEONE bought it.

So, only four classes, but each class has 9 specs, or souls. You make a setup by picking three of the souls, and allocating pts. This leads to a surprising amount of diversity, because while there's less diversity within a soul, you can mix and match at your leisure. The difference in the way these souls play is extreme; think Holy vs Disc Priest in WoW, and you've just described the difference between, say, the Sentinel and Purifier souls for the Cleric, ish. Now look again at the *9* different souls for each class.

So that's neat; the game really gives you a lot of variety to play with. Every class has souls that can either DPS, Tank, Heal, or Support (usually a combination of CC and heals), generally, each class having access to 3 of those archetypes. The slated update coming is releasing souls that will fill the gaps; Warriors will get a true Heal, Clerics a true Support, Mages a true Tank, and Rogues a true Heal.

So there's crazy diversity to how you can play the game, which makes someone like me very very entertained much longer. I've only leveled a Cleric to ~60 (max level), but have 5 separate spec setups that each feel quite different and fill different niches for what I'm after. Which means I've yet to really play with four souls.

With my Cleric, I have five specs that I'm mostly sticking to. One of them, the Defiler, a healing soul, does something I've never seen in any MMO to heal. It places 'links' on allies, and each link intercepts a %'age of the damage the target receives. Every time I heal, I place a buff on myself that absorbs that intercepted damage. So, my healing output may be a bit less than some other healers, but I reduce the incoming damage everyone is receiving. Additionally, every time I do damage, I have a chance to place a HAT on the targets of my links, and can proc that HAT whenever I want. The whole 'do damage to heal' or 'heal to do damage' mechanic is really neat, and I've seen in scattered games, but Rift really plays with with a few different souls. For example, the Cleric tanking spec tanks in part by healing itself and the group for a portion of the damage it deals.

Crafting is pretty typical for an MMO, but is intentionally designed such that by the time you're ready to leave an area and have collected mats and such, the gear you produce from crafting at level will be UPGRADES to your stuff. I remember in WoW, being level, say, 30, and having Blacksmithing at level, and producing lvl 20 gear. Not so with Rift; you'll upgrade your entire armor set if you keep crafting at level.

I would basically describe it as WoW for adults with a lot more diversity of *stuff*, and also, it's free to play. Like I said, the things you can pay for are extremely reasonable; the equivalent of a subscription (~15 a month) nets you a host of bonuses like +xp or +gold and such, and wardrobe purchases. If you want to spend money on the game, you can, if you don't want to, that's fine too. Trion has been very reasonable with what things cost, and it is the furthest from Pay2Win of any game I've ever seen. If you don't pay at all, you simply limit the number of bag slots you can have, don't have access to 1 soul for each class, and can't use the AH. That's about it, and that's hardly game breaking. Additional bag slots cost ~1 dollar, the souls are kind of pricy at ~15, and the AH comes with purchase of the expansion souls or with patron status, which is basically a subscription. It is not remotely Pay2Win. They recognize cosmetic purchases as cosmetic, and are really supporting the notion of 'micro' in microtransaction.

You can't use the AH at all if you don't pay something? I could see that being a bit of a pain. But the rest doesn't seem so bad. I'll probably give this a shot considering I don't really need to put anything down to try it.

I should clarify; you have access to almost everything that's Pay, by buying with in game currency. That said, the AH is like 1000pk, which is hard to come by.

But that said, the AH is pretty dated. It's basically WoWs AH, which is to say, virtually useless. If you actually want to play a market, it's kind of lacking. I've used the AH once: I put about 30 levels worth of mats up, about half sold, and I decided it was worth donating the stuff to lowbies in the guild over getting a handful of plats.

There's another kind of currency, Rex, that is purportedly a conversion between RL money and IG cash, but I haven't touched it so I don't know anything about it.

What sets that Soul apart from the others? Is it noticeably better in some way (not sure how it can be better than all of the other 8, but hey), is it the newest, or is there just a cool factor?

I came here wanting to type up a request for a recommendation for a game and now I'm downloading RIFT instead, so thanks :D

The four souls are not necessary, but they are, in each case, pretty awesome.
Warrior: Tempest
Rogue: Tactician
Mage: Harbinger
Cleric: Defiler

The Tempest is a ranged dps class, so can combine well with tanks or melee dps set ups to allow constant dps output.
The Tactician is a support class that responds on the fly by dropping engines and cores that can heal, do damage, buff/debuff.
The Harbinger is a melee dps class, and is very mobile
The Defiler is my main, and is probably the coolest healing class I've ever played.

But yeah, they aren't necessary, just pretty awesome. By no means will you get kicked from a raid if you aren't specced as one of those souls. My understanding of raids is that no one really cares what you are, so long as you're contributing. All classes are able to contribute, so, that. Obviously in some situations there will be preferences over others (if you're the only healer, and the raid is notorious for consistent AoE damage, don't rock a single target healing soul), but the gyst of the games design is similar to GW2 insofar as getting away from staring at a DPS/HPS meter.

Seconded - I'd also be really interested to know if there is such a game out there.

Incidentally, I just got a Samsung Galaxy S3 as my first smartphone. I've been living under a rock for the last several years and am a total n00b to the world of Android apps. Can anyone recommend some good Android apps that fall in one of the following two categories?

1) simple, mindless but fun/addicting puzzle games. I've been playing Dots which is awesome, and I'd love to know of any similar games. Simple games that you end up playing when you're bored and/or procrastinating, like Solitaire/Minesweeper, but more interesting/satisfying. This would extend to simple/retro platformers with puzzle elements, à la Chip's Challenge. Achievements would be a plus - I'm a completionist.

2) old school Final Fantasy-style RPGs. I found a cool game called Gurk which is fun, although super old school, as it plays like an NES game. I like that style, but something more Super NES-y might be better, if there exists such a game.

1) Jetpack Joyride? It's a 1-button throttlecopter game, but it's fun and has achievements.
2) Battleloot Adventure. RPG, decent graphics, basic turn-based combat.

For a really "simple to learn" game, Dungeon18 is fun.
you control a adventurer in a dungeon, but instead of having the classic rogue-like style, you just choose the monsters you want to fight (from their stats and loot), the items you want to buy, and the stats you level-up.
There are 4 classes, plus an unlockable one (the skeleton king, the end boss, once you beat him).

Seconded - I'd also be really interested to know if there is such a game out there.


I just stuck "x-com like game for android" into google and found this 4.5 star gem only £1.25 (so I assume $2)

there's also this one which is free

but out of 800 reviews about 300 of them are 5* and 300 are 1* with a 3* average, so it could be shit.

I decided to try a fire emblem game, sounds like I might like it. But there are many so which one is good and has a official or unofficial translation?
