  1. I'm always baffled by this sort of complaint....

    I'm always baffled by this sort of complaint. What does "bland" even mean? Does everything need to be some crazy, unique fantasy or sci-fi world? What would that add to a game like this?

    It's set...

    If you use Hola or a VPN, you'll see the US prices. They might reject non-US payment methods for USD transactions, but they might not.


    Oh good, that means I can buy Banished later today without...

    Uh, I've been doing this for no less than five years. Regardless of what they may put in the EULA, they don't actually care.

    Don't bother trying unless you have a valid US credit card, though....

    I'm not a particularly big fan of Wil Wheaton, but he and his friends would be a million times better at producing and hosting something like this. Or just anyone who 1) cares a bit about the subject...

    I think the most useful distinguishing factor is fancy 3D graphics vs. not. That's truthfully what we're talking about here in terms of consumer expectations. X Rebirth and Rome 2 and CoH 2 and even...

    Recettear could easily be my game of the year for all years. It ain't perfect, but it really hits a sweet spot with its balance between action and RPG and tycoon elements and cutesy silliness.

    I...

    Aside from the inevitable UK bias, I wouldn't complain about the choice of games. Unless you have space for over 100, you're going to have to leave out some highly significant moments.

    But after...

    I genuinely do not understand how this is supposed to be an improvement over a human on a bicycle. There are so many problems, where do you even start. Battery life, weather, navigation around...
  9. There hasn't been an update to Dwarf Fortress in...

    There hasn't been an update to Dwarf Fortress in about 18 months. I would hope that's enough time for the graphics packs to catch up.

    Also, everyone should be using the Starter Pack, the successor...

    Read the first two books of the Dresden Files. They're annoyingly close to being really good, but not quite there. Good plots, interesting world, but fairly weak characters.

    It's like the opposite...

    Yes, absolutely. Though I think it's more just tweaking the skill directly than any huge synergies. Skelemancers are viable in the last patch, mostly by pumping up Raise Skeleton and Skeleton...

    Right. Maybe if they made the fetish stuff last longer and the gargantuan runes more usefully varied, it could *almost* work. But it's nowhere near the mob of skeletons and skeleton mages (plus a...

    D3X has also taken twice as long to develop, compared with LoD. It won't be out until (nearly) two years since the original game was released.

    No complaints about the stuff that's in it, but they...

    Carmack putting all his chips down on Oculus is a bit exciting. We're very close to finally having decent, widely-supported VR at reasonable prices, and Carmack is definitely the guy you'd want for...

    Did the Song of Ice and Fire mod for Warband ever get finished? If so, I may want to switch my vote to option one in the near future.

    Nah. GPU vs CPU. There should be a fair bit of breathing space in both consoles to make game worlds that aren't simple and lifeless, even as we continue on the tedious treadmill of ever-prettier...

    I've had this problem with some games, and I'd recommend transporting yourself back to the magical world of 1992 by disabling your internet connection for a good hour. Spend 5-10 minutes skimming...

    Daggerfall would qualify. Great rules (especially character creation), plenty of darkness, little or no silliness.

    Biology is important, but obviously we're capable of making decisions. For example, there's a correlation between affluence and not having kids, or having fewer kids. If you ignore immigration,...

    The best point I've heard in past discussions about this sort of thing: yes I can go outside and play football with friends, but I can't live out the life of a professional footballer, and I can't...

    Theoretically. In reality, nearly all of them share the same crap gameplay mechanics which put them in a very narrow genre.

    To me, the funniest thing about all this is that I could write pages and...

    That's the most hilarious thing. How did they manage to avoid milking the Jedi Knight series, for example? Hello, FPSes are still hugely popular.

    The Star Wars license has been heavily exploited...

    The genre started out so well, peaking very quickly with Ultima Online. It was a great game in itself, but also a hint at vast unexplored possibilities of what you could do with thousands of players...

    Always-online is fairly unlikely, if only because of the inevitable server meltdown in the first week after launch. You don't want that kind of awful press and angry customers.

    My argument against violence in games is that it's just not interesting anymore. I'm really, really tired of shooting things. I'm even more tired of the fact that murdering people is the default...
