    If you are controlling a character and give them an order, if you then switch to another character does the first character complete the order you provided?

    I'm confused. How does a party based game work if you have to click on your enemy every time you want to attack them?

    No it wouldn't. Requiring all kickstarter money over the goal to be spent on a project is crazy talk.

    I would recommend a game that makes people feel awful, but I wouldn't recommend feeling awful about a game.

    I tend to think of everyone on this board as "the something", depending on their avatar or name. So Melody is presumably going to be the Cat, or the Doll.

    One problem with this approach is that...

    It's a board game adaptation. I've got my eye on it, because I like computerised board games, but I'm waiting for some feedback before I get it.

    I play Oblivion in a fairly ridiculous fashion these days. First, skill increase rate is 1/5 of normal. Attributes are calculated by (sum of three governed skills)/2. Major skills are ones that...

    Yes, having things semi-hidden is usually for the best. Still, when I was young I used to find cheat codes not hard to find but hard to resist even when it was bad for me, and these days with the...

    I haven't played the game, but the general interface and colour scheme makes me think of Imperialism screenies.

    I think they only added the tutorial later because people who were bad at games were upset.

    Well, the Flotsam guy is a tool not an ally. It's not that you're on his side, you're just taking advantage of him while his goal matches yours. For me the choice was obvious too, just the other way...

    I'm a big fan of both of the Witcher games, but I guess most of the things they get criticised for is stuff I'm never going to care about. I guess the combat in the first game is not that good but it...

    It doesn't really change much. You either like it or you don't.

    The second game has much better combat mechanics and nothing as grindy as the swamp. In most other respects it's broadly similar in...

    The main problem with IWD is that it's a combat-based game but the encounter design is typically not as good as in BG2 or IWD2. Also it has a few too many scripted appearances of enemies all around...

    Drakensang is OK, but it's nothing special in story, atmosphere, characters, or mechanics. But playable.

    I think my point is fairly obvious from my post, but your own post builds upon it. Board games are most comfortably mechanics-with-theme. Lots of video games are like that too, but they also have...
