That is indeed a problem when there is no competition I agree, and although Australia is bigger I guess it is much less densely populated then the Netherlands.
Australia is huge, but most of it is desert and it's most populated around the coasts. I live in the country which is one reason I get low speeds. If I was in one of the capital cities it would be a lot better, but still nowhere near US and Euro speeds, and costs. But is what it is...
and could always be worse.
Actually I have played Fable - The lost Chapters, and I still have the game. It is a very nice game to play, but it is very much an EGO game in my opinion. Did Fable 1 became what the development team wanted it to become ... I think not. I like Fable the Lost Chapters, but in all honesty I have no real idea if you will. Still if you can get Fable - The Lost Chapters very cheap then you could always watch a few video's and then decide whether to try it or not.
I'll check out some videos. I'm not sure what an "EGO" game is. I looked on Google and all I got was links to LEGO or EGO, an actual game engine..
Watched some vids and I do remember some of it now, at least the beginning. The thing I really like is the reputation system in that you are recognized for the things you do. An important thing that's lacking in many rpg's. Is that what you mean by EGO?
Anyway, I'm currently downloading it from Steam. It's only 2.1GB and cost $9.99 which is OK considering I just saw the very first Gothic game for $19.99. Great game, but is very old now and I wouldn't pay that much for it if I didn't already have it.
I guess I'm clutching at straws looking for games in my very small sphere of preference. I've already played the ones I really like, several times, ..Gothic series, Thief series, Vampire the Masquerade, Fallout 3& NV, TES and some others etc... and I'm a bit more than jaded re the way the industry is going.
