Episode 005 – Strategy and Tactical RPGs

Ahoy! This week we cover Strategy and Tactical RPGs. These roleplaying games have much in common with tabletop war games. Rather than bash the Attack or Item command, a player must first consider things like terrain, line of fire and fragging a team mate by accident before making a move.

The list of games is long: Final Fantasy Tactics, Rebelstar Tactical Command (from the makers of X-Com), Shining Force, Kartia, the free open source Battle of Wesnoth, Disgaea, even the controversial new team-based title Demigod, which I fully believe is the best RPG deathmatch since Nox.

P.S. Sorry it’s a day late, next week we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled Thursday episode.
