Story driven turn based team rpgs
« on: April 13, 2016, 07:10:11 PM »
So... I was wondering if anyone can recommend more games like Wasteland 2. Where you level up and customize a team of characters and not just one character. Preferably with a similar graphics level or better, so no oldy timey 8bit stuff like the original XCOM games. And turn based combat.

There's the newer XCOM, which always felt a bit more base managing-y interrupted by constant alien attacks to me. I guess there was some storyline, but not like there is in Wasteland 2 or older games like Neverwinter Nights for example. It felt like upgrading your base and gear and managing the satellite network so you could murder the boss alien was the main goal instead of advancing a wider storyline.

Is XCOM 2 different from 1 in that specific sense? Or is it now managing your stolen ship and leveling up to defeat the main alien boss?

Other titles?

The Blackguards games are kinda in that vein.

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." Josiah Stamp (Governor Bank of England 1928-41)
