The best narrative for Fallout 4 isnít the one Bethesda are trying to tell though. Itís as ill considered and disorientated as New Vegas was plotted and finely honed. Youíre being generous in saying...

I bought Fallout 4 yesterday. I’m moving house next week and I wanted to make sure I had something escapist and undemanding that I could dip into when I get the chance to play offline while the...

I fell out with Invisible Inc big time last night. I had a total bullshit level which has never happened before, just wall to wall guards, cameras and drones whose LOS all covered one another, so I...

I think Bethesda have really all but dropped the RPG conceit. It's all about a "world of possibilities" and "player options" now in their lingo. Which is true. Just not in the sense you'd expect from...
It's nice, you know? I think Lees is very good at digestible playthroughs, where he highlights several hours worth of stuff and condenses it and narrates over. He's an accomplished editor and seems...

They are borderline terrible in some aspects-plot, AI, companions, meaningful character options, dialogue- but they are excellent in others-open world manipulative fuckery and tourism. The latter are...

The one hour challenge is SOM is amazing. You have to assassinate a big bad and get to him within one hour, there's no cutscenes or any of that BS. Just work out how to work your way through the...
I'm going to use this to further my own agenda but it just reinforces the fact that games journalism is simply stuck for the most part now. The things you (and I) liked about RPS at its peak were...

1) Get off Easy ASAP because it will give you a misleading interpretation of how levels play out. I don't know how the "restart from day" thing works but that's an Easy only mode and again, a safety...

Don't know what difficulty you're on but the new DLC mid-end game is bastard hard on expert. I've tried and failed four times over the past few days. I got up to what feels like is either a new "The...

Well I'll be going into it a skeptic obviously. But it's always good to challenge yourself.
There's another obvious issues in regards to the Mongol Invasions in the sense that it's a quite rare...

If you have no critical capacity to tell sounds, graphics and tone apart and literally only see guns, blood and enemies irrespective of context and aesthetic then you could definitely do that yes.

I don’t care that it was “badly written” in either respect because that doesn’t impact upon the things I liked about it, none of which were to do with the writing (apart form the decision...

I'll give it a whirl! I remember reading a review of it somewhere and putting it on my Wishlist but that's as far as things got. Thanks for recommendation.

I really enjoyed Borderlands, playing it through with my little brother. He’s autistic and I struggle to find ways to be with him socially that he doesn’t find difficult so in terms of my positive...

Your arguments point to the progress of the existence of wealth, not humanity's capacity to use it to create a commonwealth however. The two are very different.
The 20th century is by far the...

No-one has said that though. Not least because it's such a vague claim as to be worthless.
And debunking the concept of the "march of the progress" is basically the first thing you learn in any...

Yeah, all fair enough. Works the other way around though as well. I haven't given a definition, that's fair. But if that's a prerequisite to the argument then you can't posit a contrary statement...

Failed two runs in Invisible Inc. The first one was a campaign that felt sealed up, I had everything I was hoping for from my respective raids and was building a nice little team but I wasnít paying...

What evidence, within the examples that you cite, is there of human nature changing? The fact that there is difference between the criminality of USA and Canada or anywhere else is evidence only of...

Examples of human nature changing such as? Saying 'on the contrary' and then just stating an alternative proposition is not an argument
19-11-2015, 11:48 PM
In absolute terms of course it is unknowable. But there are incredibly persistent trends that you can't simply argue away on the grounds that things might change one day. I mean, they might, but all...

a) Europe not being at war with itself is a poor example for a variety of reasons, but not least because Europe is not representative of humanity, because wars were never a collective...
These are basically perfect. Note they aren't factors which...

The Terror Missions were the only thing that I felt resembled an escalation of difficulty yes, and obviously because of my play style they posed an issue in respect to saving civilians (although it...
