    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.

    Dialogue choices feed into what is kinda like alignment. There's eight or ten...

    Loving it so far. A few minor interface quibbles but beyond that it's proving to be rather excellent.

    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.

    Usually the Origin update wants to replace the...

    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...

    Actually The Bill of Rights gives the right to bear arms to British Citizens. Subsequent laws mean that about the only arms you can carry under it are the brown bess, and even then you'll need a...

    Given your earlier statements re Dungeons and Dragons you might want to try Descent 2nd Edition or Mice and Mystics. They're both dungeon crawlers though much less setup time than D&D (if you...

    According to the missive I got from Microsoft they're retiring MS points in favour of actual money, so it may not be the death of GFWL so much as rebranding.

    Misogyny? The only men in the game are portrayed not only as inferior to, but subservient to the women. And there's not one slab of beef in speedos on the roster. I'd think misandry would be somewhat...

    No, you can easily incorporate complicated mathematics, you just find a way to do it that doesn't require the players to do all the working out in their heads.
