    I love Bioshock 2 more than is perhaps entirely reasonable - it's one of my favourite games of all time - but yeah, even I have to admit the opening is a little too insistently "Y'know, Bioshock? You...

    Kingdom Rush is definitely about as conventional tower defence as it gets, and yes, it was originally a flash game on the interwebs (still is, AFAIK) but it's one of the best examples of the form...

    Vinge's tech may be "made up" but you're potentially doing him a disservice saying that in this context - for thing (X), he still focuses on plausible reasons such a thing would be invented, what it...

    In the credits he apologises to his wife and family for taking four years over it. Or that was how I read it. I'm guessing that wasn't literally four years of programming, level design etc., etc.,...

    No, no, you misunderstand, or I'm not making my point properly - the game's art design and story are, to quote Penny Arcade, smoldering with generic rage, so they soundtracked it with a band/a...

    Those three or four missions form the prologue, after which you get a "5 years later" popup and the game proper begins. There's no skipping the missions as they only exist to give you the story...

    Strange. Still, it is a beta, and I'd hesitate to level that against the game (as opposed to Ubisoft's QA department). I don't doubt it's not working out for you and all those other people, but...

    Uh, set your car to Dirt spec (ideally) and just turn off the road whenever you want? There's not much out there at the moment since they've only put missions in two areas out of eight (I think) and...

    Just on the offchance - anyone else who's got The Crew beta and wants to try the multiplayer? I'm EightRooks - no space - on UPlay as well. No worries if not, just thought I'd give it a shot.
