America's Army Preview (PC)
game: America's Army
preview | 06/08/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It\'s bizarre to see the US Army making such a PR push. First they produced that reality Web series about boot camp. Now they\'ve created a development house, America\'s Army and two games: Operations and Soldiers. One is an FPS built on the new Unreal engine that should give Clancy fans and their ilk a treat. The other is an RPG. Both are free for the playing. Click for more.

World of Warcraft Preview (PC)
game: World of Warcraft
preview | 06/01/02 | Aaron Stanton
Blizzard will throw their hat into the MMORPG arena with World of Warcraft. Building on the successes of their previous titles, both Warcraft and non-Warcraft franchises, this one is already playing pretty sweet. And then there\'s that top-secret new character race... Click here.

City of Heroes Preview (PC)
game: City of Heroes
preview | 05/30/02 | Aaron Stanton
Developed under the tutelage of online gaming giant Richard Garriot, NCSoft\'s latest endeavour, City of Heroes, is a MMORPG with a twist. Rather than the typical fantasy setting, you get to create your own superhero and vanquish evil. Tons of customization options and a cool gameplay setup should make this a hit. Click here.

game: Neverwinter Nights
preview | 05/20/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
BioWare and Infogrames will bring us the long-awaited Neverwinter Nights sometime this year.

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter Review (PS2)
game: Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
review | 04/02/02 | Eric Qualls
Capcom\'s other latest offering is a revolutionary take on their established Breath of Fire series. Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter does two things very differently: First, it incorporates a way-cool cel shaded look. Second, the game structure and replay system are unlike anything we\'ve seen in console RPGs. Read all about it here.

EDITORIAL - The RPG Experience: Conventions and Not Beyond
Articles Archive | 04/20/01 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
RPG is a game in which character development and character interaction take precedence over other factors and where each player's experience of the story is determined by individual choice rather than designer fiat . . . Of greatest importance, this definition eliminates adventure games, which share with the RPG an emphasis on story and character. What adventure games lack - and this is a critical point - is the capability for players to grow and develop their characters, and to affect, if not the outcome of the story, than the way in which the story unfolds. Without both character development and genuine choices placed within a player's control, a game cannot be called a role-playing game, as I choose to define the genre (Remodeling 1).

INTERVIEW - Victor Ireland, President of Working Designs
Articles Archive | 09/10/00 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Working Designs is a small development/publishing house that specilizes in finding some of the best Japanese titles available and giving us stateside gamers a chance to get in on the action. They've been delivering high quality games since the Turbografix 16 and have developed a signature style of addictive gameplay and superb writing. Most recently they've given us Lunar and Vanguard Bandits, two of my favorite RPGs on the PlayStation. Lunar 2: Eternal Blue will probably (hopefully) make its way into your PlayStation pretty soon, and Working Desings has two titles, Silpheed and Gungriffon Blaze, lined up for the Playstation 2 launch in October. I had a chance to ask Victor Ireland, President of Working Desings, some questions and get the skinny on their new titles, their creative approach, and those ever-so-sweet RPG translations.
