    I would play a steampunk FPS/RPG kinda game

    I don't think you could really get the crafting/magic into it, though

    So, I finally have room for my third follower, only problem is the ones I know are from way long past (Sogg and Magnus) or evil (Torian Kel, that dude by the graveyard). Would it be too much of a pain in the ass to try to get Magnus up to my level (level 8 to level 32?) or would it be worth it, I mean he does have his own voice actor

    they level up pretty quick. I mean, think about how much experience you are getting per guy, versus how much you need to get in those early levels

    he will always be a little bit behind but before long you won't notice it.

    Arcanum 2 would be terrible in FPS. I could possibly dig a ME-style over the shoulder, but 3D NWN2 would be better suited.

    Hi guys, steampunk is an absolutely retarded term, cut it out.


    the etymology doesn't even work


    Arcanum isn't steampunk. It's just steam.


    nice try though.

    Arcanum is like the dictionary definition of steampunk.

    I wouldn't even be surprised if the word steampunk wasn't on the back of the box.

    So I'll call it whatever I like, thanks.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    I refer to Arcanum as steampunk because it's an exploration of how new steam technology interacts with the fantastic of magical fiction. It's acceptable because the new technology rears its radical head in the face of traditional magical rule. One might think of the punk movement of the 80s and 90s and appropriately think the term "punk" applies.

    <3 u jasconius but it's steampunk alright. It's just set in a unique era of the world.

    It wasn't on the box, and I am surprised at the incredible lengths people go through on the internet to try and defend the idea.


    I think people just like saying the word.


    Carry on then.

    It took me 20 seconds to defend my use of the word "at length"... Let's just start calling it an FPS because why does anyone care?

    I thought it was nerdy of me to explain my use of the term but now I see it's just your nerdiness riding in on the high horse of pushing your glasses back onto the bridge of your nose and nasally spouting something retarded that nobody cares about.

    I would like to see a new version of Arcanum, but not as a Fallout-3 type thing.

    Really I'd be happy to see Arcanum remade with shiny 3D graphics in an isometric viewpoint. Oh and better combat.

    Personally, I like that you can create violent automaton killing-machines with simple, household components found in any hardware store.

    I love that you can build power armor using a steam engine, and then shoot an elf with a machine gun. Or that you can wear a tuxedo and shoot an elf with a revolver. Or a jacket that heals you while setting an elf on fire with a flamethrower.

    There's something about shooting an elf with a revolver that just seems right.

    It might be a toaster.

    I would say that there is a decent chance that it could, in fact, make toast, given that it seems to enjoy become roughly as hot as the surface of the sun.

    The issue is more with running Vista on a laptop that really has no right to be running it.

    Also, I might have a broken fan or something.

    Why the hell you running vista on that thing? There's, like, most of your problems with it right there. You can fix the heating issue with a decent external fan (unless the internal is totally gone).
