Your hatred of Burricks is only surpassed in intensity by your dedication to catalouging references to your hatred of Burricks.
Also Assassins is the Best Level by miles. Must have played it for...
Part of the fun of counterfactual history though innit. Historical advance isn't predictable.
Given how rapidly much of society mechanised and changed in the 19th century it's somewhat...
There was so much in the Proper (nyah) Thief Series about the End of the World and the advance of change etc that a post Thief game about a post Thief world could be an exceptionally interesting...
I find this is so odd. As if Thief ever gained its critical reception on the back of just allowing you to nick stuff. No lore, No Taffers, No Hammerites, No Basso, No trickster, No Karras, No...

That stuff is undeniably well done, but it's just the drop off. I've played countless games which excel at telling you a story-always a good thing-but it's a games unique capacity to make you play...

Thief was revolutionary, but pretty flawed. For all of its marvellous weirdness there's an extent to which that takes precedence over gaming semantics. Far too much supernatural shit in for the sake...

My wife is very intelligent and has recently won a national award for her scholarship. She is exceedingly capable in most aspects of life.
But she doesn't understand video games. At all.

Started Red Dead Redemption. Know it's been done to death but this is the most PC Game not on PC ever. And it would be improved for it too. But I sort of get why it's not happened.
What I don't...

Mayhaps a controversial view but I think Dishonored works better as just as a Thief em up in cyberpunk town. Played it through second time with no powers and it was richer, as well as harder....

What's the state with Shadowrun these days? I got the impression from reviews that it was a decent platform which was awaiting some well written content, the vanilla campaign being nae great shakes....
If they didn't want it comparing with the Original Thief, they shouldn't have bought the IP. If they're saying "this is a different game to the other Thiefs(sic)" it begs the question as to why they...

Played a videogame this weekend! Not happened in a while. I played a game which I have played lots of already it is called Saints Row IV it is excellent.
I forgot just how good it is though in...

I think there's too much unnecessary stuff in Warlock. It's complexity derives from bad design rather than challenge in my opinion. I think if it were either stripped down a tad, or properly built up...

I don't want to work in gaming. I don't see why it matters. Career paths, prestige earned through climbing the ladder and putting in the hours in no way grants you the right to abuse other people,...

That was me, and I recommend it to all if you haven't done it. Every weapon turns a combat encounter into a different scenario more or less, if you can believe it. It's that well designed. A fight...

Yeah I chose my people's on the basis of their biographies alone, rather than worrying overly about anything else. I think I'll probably auto-resolve many of the battles as I'd rather just get on...
You should read the full thing. It's not that he has a problem with superheroes per se, or at all, but the fact that they have been colonised by a superficial "maturity" and a sort of fanbase who...

I'm not talking about perspective or anything of the sort. I'm talking about the facts they have presented us with, that this guy is half wraith who can teleport. That is not-at all-in keeping with...

Jackson's LOTR was quite a departure from the books in terms of the violence and darkness, but it was clearly an interpretation which was overwhelmingly faithful to the lore and plot points. It just...

I've yet to play Banner Saga but Expeditions: Conquistador is an exploration based RPG with turn based combat and persistent leveling, random events and unrevokable choices. I enjoyed what little of...

I think Sleeping Dogs has better combat. There's more variety in the moves available to you, and it's more of a challenge.
The game looks awful. It looks like every Creed em up that's come out in...

I don't have any advice to offer on your situation, just wanted to say I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Was like Edgar Allan Poe does New Games Journalism. Like your insidious desire for more...

Got that one. Tried ENB but couldn't seem to get it to work. Some people appear to have but it is not apparent how they have done so.

I stopped using anything other than the bolt action one for that reason. Not interested in winning over enjoying myself. Although in fairness you're often as fucked if you're caught in the open by a...

No other way to play it. It basically stops being an FPS and becomes this new, glorious violent survive em up which demands you fight and think for every inch you make.
