    I on the other hand find that pretty much a cliché, a sci-fi cliché that is.

    My advice, get neither.

    But I already tried NWN2 and Mask of the Betrayer :twisted:
    And I experienced some annoying bugs (enemies that should be easy to slay, were unbeatable!) but all things considered, including prices, I will probably buy NWN 2.

    But this doesn't mean I will not buy Mass Effect. It's all a matter of Euro availability...

    The same doesn't apply to Fallout 3, that is a complete different thing... It has to fill the shoes of my 2 favorite games ever, so it has a lot to prove before I even spend a cent on it!
    Fallout Tactics never meet my expectations, so I never bought it, not even when it was offered with a gaming magazine...

    Oh? Could you name me a couple of computer RPG that are not clichés? I've been playing them for the past 15 years and I don't think I can name any. That aside, I found Mass Effect exciting on several levels. It wasn't perfect or specifically groundbreaking, but it most certainly was not as dull and tired as Neverwinter Nights 2 that truly offered nothing new to the table.

    On the other hand, ZiggyMeister, if you like the game, just go ahead and buy it. It's not my place to convince you not to. As I said, it's an anonymous Internet opinion I would almost certainly disregard myself if I were in your shoes.

    Back to the subject. I assume the damn thing will be available for later viewing? I have rather important things to do this Monday night.

    Indeed, most RPGs are cliché, that is why I don't play most of them.

    It seems that most RPG writers thing "Well that worked in the past so lets reuse that plot device again, the customers expect it of us."

    It would be nice that instead they would see it as a challenge to come up with storylines that are even more complex and push forth the medium, you know, like how books can push the concept of literature forth.

    But that would probably become to complex for the current audience who apparently already had problems with figuring out Oblivion.

    I hope so, because with the timezone difference I will probably be sleeping, but even if I wont be sleeping I can be doing something more interesting than watching 2 hours of game demos...

    And If I spent my time and 807MB of my international download limits to watch a Diablo 3 Gameplay Trailer, just to check how it was. Then I really don't mind doing the same to watch Fallout 3 gameplay demo just to complain how lame and disappointing it may be :lol:

    Boy, Diablo III is sure putting a lot of pressure on these guys.

    It's a good thing if that's true. Means they are trying to beat Diablo's hype. Means they're gonna loose.

    If it's not true, means they'll loose anyway, so it's a win/win situation :D

    Is it so wrong to be looking forward to seeing a demo, and looking forward to Fallout 3? So far, all I have seen has looked good, and many people seem to simply hate the idea that a sequel is being made to a great game. What is so wrong with it?

    I think you're on the wrong forum.
