    It's kinda half and half. The difference between a marksman and sniper is role more than anything else. Since you're usually solo in FarCry it encourages using similar tactics to a sniper in that...

    The problem isn't how the rifle works (at least not at the ranges you can usually engage at in FarCry; it's rarely long enough that you'd need to worry about wind or gravity), it's how the enemy...

    Only Bioware tended towards D&D ruleset emulation. I think all have been tried over the years, even Traveller (was quite popular mid nineties, although the main ones I can recall using it were all...

    I was thinking about this seeing my sister's kids over Christmas. It's kinda weird; both of them game (one's 13. the other 11) though nowhere near the extent I did when I was their age. I suspect...

    It's not, because we choose which games we play. It's more likely someone's views on violence influence which games they decide to buy, rather than the games they buy influencing their views on...

    Quite likely. The problem I think is that those fights on your passage through the Deep Roads feel pointless. There's no reason behind them, nor are the areas where the combat occurs particularly...

    Not so much rose tinted glasses as forgetting the "here's some random tunnel" maps before you got to the bit where the deep roads got interesting, and the "here's some more random tunnels" maps...

    Being hunted by a destroyer in virtually any of the Silent Hunter games. I don't think I've found anything even close to the tension it manages to evoke.

    The areas are levelled, so if you wander into a given location at low level you'll find a lot of higher level enemies. Those which randomly spawn in seem to be adjusted to your level.

    That's why I think they got it right though. The Chantry is in crisis, and those associated with the chantry, such as Cassandra and the clerics, are naturally filled with uncertainty and panic. It's...

    DA:I does have it's NPC's wander around within a small area, it's simply that they don't follow any logical goal - it tends to be stand around a bit, go and poke at the floor over there, walk...

    I think it depends greatly on what class you pick. I'm using a duel wielding rogue, and most of the time it's hard to tell if you're even hitting the opponent thanks in part to the oversized UI and...

    FC2 satirises 'war as a business' rather than anything specific to Africa. There's naturally some element of commentary on the political situation of Africa thanks to the setting and subject, but...

    No, what the games industry fails to offer is that unique stale smoke smell, booming music, flashing lights and strange wind vortices that comprised the average seafront arcade. It's pure nostalgia,...

    Is it? This kinda goes back to the issues I had with the death of the gamer articles. It's not gamer culture which has changed, it's the journalists. It's not entirely surprising - video games...

    Common law is not criminal law. The two are rather distinct. There is no burden of evidence nor standard of evidence under common law, nor are magistrates required to undergo any legal training...

    Same here.

    It's the spirit behind the game I think. Baldur's Gate came along at a time when CRPG's had pretty much descended into number-crunching with the theme loosely pasted on, and it's...

    Water + Electricity seems to be incredibly useful. Especially with rain; you get a huge AoE then the electricity will hit everything that's wet, usually stunning them to boot. Makes the early combats...

    You pick it for both. You can even have them disagree and attempt to charm / intimidate / reason with each other.

    Quite a lot already do. It's pretty normal in fact, usually it's a case of offering some of the higher tier rewards separately so you can get the game plus the rewards you actually want rather than...

    Origin is never required to be running to play games off it. In fact, they usually happily continue to work even if you uninstall the Origin client.

    It's a linear shooter. As a genre I find them slightly less interesting than watching paint dry. So it applies for me, along with Bioshock. I'd also throw in the Thief series and Dishonoured, because...

    No it's not. Regional pricing is simply a nice way of saying "milking the market". European jobs tend to have higher salaries, and Europeans in general tend to have more disposable income, so you...
