TurpsterVision: Did I mention there is a war going on?

Mark Turpin

Every Tuesday think "T" for Turpster and take the "a" in "day", capitalize it, remove the little bit in the middle, turn it upside down and you get a "V". Put the two together and you'll have TV for TurpsterVision -- the best Internet video podcast on Massively! (Never mind that business about it being the only video podcast on Massively...)

Another average week, another fantastic TV Episode. This time around I've decided to have a look at Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa. I've heard a few good things about this title, but to be honest, I've heard far more bad things. I am not one to make up my mind on a game before I've played it, so I went down to my local store and picked up a copy. It just so happened that the Collector's Edition of the game was cheaper than the standard edition – go figure. I'm not complaining since I get a nifty little floating robot non-combat pet that follows me around!

To see the review as always you have to take the step into the void and join us on the other side of the break.

What shocked me most was that I liked the game. I was all geared up to rip into it and make General British/ Richard Garriott cry. The thing is; it really is fun. The element of the game that I keep coming back to in my mind is the XP-multiplier. I hate to level, and this feature meant that I was always chain-killing mobs to keep me right on the edge of my comfort zone. Out of the games I have reviewed so far for TurpsterVision I would definitely rate this up there with Lord of the Rings Online in terms of enjoyment. Why are you still reading this? Go grab a copy and let me know how you get on in game!
