God I miss the days of 200 page PC gamer with loads of upcoming games, that were published, not crowd funded or paid demos(I mean Early Access).
These games were still being made, you just didn't have access to them. 8 or nine titles in my steam folder are looking like real gems from their EA stage, but I had to do a lot of research to pick the right ones.
There is a severe lack of decent story or character driven RPG's coming out though. I don't count MMO's as character or story driven RPG's, they tried a hybrid with starwars the old republic but like everyone told them, stories would take too long to make. So what happened, great stories for release, and then generic faction missions for years. Beth tried their own MMO, whatever your opinion on their MMO, we still need a decent single player Beth game that we are sitting around waiting twiddling our thumbs for. Fallout 4 has been how long now? Best seller, no sequel, logic fail. Even skyrim is beginning to get dated now, and years away from a sequel.
As for TSO, it's not a bad MMO, but if you play RPG's for the story or characters, when your done with it, your done with it, and now are looking for a sequel. Tell Tale picked up the slack a bit in giving us characters and stories, but they don't feel like they give the player enough control over events for me, nice stories, like watching a good movie.
They've not taken up the mantel with dragon age inquisition and released the game, then not done anything to update it, or add content. Despite people falling over themselves with suggestions, nothing, and whispers now they are only going to release DLC for multiplayer. They should have just released a mod kit if they weren't going to bother with their own content.
So yeah rant over, hoping for some light at the end of the tunnel for some decent single player RPG's, but likely it's going to be an indie dev out of nowhere that takes the prize this year for RPG game of the year, we'll see. At least we have witcher
