    It's unfortunate that the Americans weren't able to deal with this through actual legislation; no doubt this will remain as controversial as other cases in which a judicial ruling rather than an...

    I did a quick YouTube search for one such video, and if we saw the same then yes: this is ridiculous. Unfortunately it is also exactly the kind of nonsense that brings tens of thousands of teenagers...

    That's all the more odd then, as the relatively faithful adaptation of the source material was one of the things that people and critics alike praised in the first seasons. I wonder why HBO lost the...

    I'm not sure if they're killing characters to shock the audience or because they keep writing themselves into situations from which there is - by then - no other (plausible) escape. Aside from a chat...

    Jon Snow would probably make for a better Aemilianus than a Caesar as the latter actually accomplished something of note, as disastrous as it sometimes was for the population of the areas he and his...

    Faldrath already mentioned some of the recent titles from the more (pretend)-realistic subgenre. The problem with these titles is that they tend to be too complicated for AI drivers. I've never seen...

    Played some Live for Speed again this weekend. It's still one of the more enjoyable racing sims. Quite surprising that a, for all intents and purposes, ten year old title still holds up so well...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I went about it in a slightly different manner, by getting rid of the scheduled tasks instead. I did so because I figured Windows might catch wind of the GWX-whateveritis...

    I've been playing Dragon Age II. I'm taking my time with it, reading codex tales and going through the stories quest-by-quest rather than sweeping up everything in an area-by-area way. As a result...

    A striking scene, to be sure.

    Some more racing, then. Mods certainly broaden the scope of Assetto Corsa in interesting ways, even if the quality isn't always up to the standard of the base...

    Absolutely! On a more serious note, comparing colours across (usually uncalibrated) monitors is always a tricky proposition.

    I think the problem with the term 'next-gen' is that we're increasingly seeing that not every platform using that name is really living up to that promise! In any case: racing fans have a lot of...

    Note that Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive is also part of GOG's Weekend Sale for €1,49.
