the in-game graphics are not really that jaw dropping if you ask me, it's rather standard

Well, last time we played Fallout it looked like this:

And Fallout Tactics had some nicer graphics FX and nicer animations, but basically it still looked like this.

I downloaded the trailer and I'll watch it again and again until the next trailer comes out

I don't really understand your obsession with Fallout. I tried playing it but really couldn't get into it.

I liked fallout when I was small, myself and my brother tried to play it through together - though I ended up starting from the begining again by myself for some reason anyway, it was good fun. Downloaded the 2nd once, couldn't get into it.

Got fallout-tactics on a shelf behind me, I havn't played it.

I loved starcraft. I hope the 2nd wont let it down. I wish they'd just make a patch so you can change resolution on the original :/

Fallout is only the greatest CRPG ever to come out of the publishing houses of Terra, that's all.

The second one is quite awesome, as well.

I do not want to see the not-computer RPGs. O.o

Reminds me of the
Last game I've played:
Super Mario RPG: Legend of t... blablah

I've just defeated teh Spoiler:
Exor, the giant sword. I'm now getting into the other dimension. Pretty close to the ending, but still way to go. This game will take me forever, I tell you.

What's so weird about not-computer RPGs?

Actually, all computer games are RPG's, you play a role = it's a role playing game. "Role Playing Game" has nothing to do with stats and attributes and shit. The definition for RPG just got totally screwed up.

Well, I was thinking about non-computer RPGs in the sense of "stats and attributes and shit." Of course, this definition of RPG coud not be less confusing.

Yes. And I don't think I like them, that's why.

Well, they can be fun playing, but I doubt they are fun setting up (figures etc.) At least, I don't enjoy those too much.

Actually, half the fun was flicking through the giant manual working out what army you'd use depending on points and how much points each unit used.

I do wish I had a friend willing to play with my lord of the ring collection. Everyone that used to play with me skipped the country :s

Heh, I used to have a friend who played lots of RPGs but he moved to Russia. Not that playing with him was particularly fun though.

When I was in middle school there was the "cool" kids, the "ars" kids (barbarian-type) and the "geek" kids.
Cool kids went to dance parties and stuff. Ars kids played soccer and talked about pokemon. Obviously I was in the third. So in order to be a cool geek I had to play RPG.

whats the english version of 'middle school' :S?

"ars" kids (barbarian-type) ? hyper-active kids?

In secondary school (basically last school, 7th year to 11th year),
I was friends with the "geeks" and some of the hyper kids. We kind of merged into 1 group because the hyper ones liked games consoles etc (actually, i found out 1 had played LBA). God we had so much fun with Zelda Four Swords .

Ars in Arabic is "pimp"... in Hebrew it's someone who acts like a pimp (rude, wears jewels, ...) in general it's someone who makes up for his low self image by barking a lot.

Ha. Don't think we had anyone who wore jewels

Closest thing we have (as far as I'm understanding you) is a chav.
