    Ugh, tell me about it. For my millionth attempt at getting anywhere, I'm doing a turn based strategy and instead of actually making anything I'm just worrying about code design. I've got a design...

    It can be quite fiddly.


    No. There's basically no variation at all.


    No. PVP might not be great if someone way better with a good ship picks a fight with you, but the game is fun from the...

    Well, it was absurdly overpriced to start with. The new price is slightly lower than a boxed copy off amazon, which is nice. But it's just discounted to what would normally be full price.

    I'd hoped that with Crusader Kings II having had some new DLC released a couple of days ago, the earlier ones would be on sale so I could get caught up, but the newest thing they put on sale was the...

    I don't have a wheel, but Richard Burns Rally is awesome. If I did have a wheel, I'd be tempted to use it for anything 3rd person.

    Arcanum. The initial thought was "oooh, this is lovely", then "OK, it's meant to have a weak start, stick with it" - but I never stuck with it. I usually got as far as the bridge near the start.

    Ideas that should be things.

    Everyone else has probably had exactly the same idea pop into their head, but I've just realised the best possible use of the Oculus Rift. A licenced Knightmare game.

    HL2 doesn't have any cutscenes, but it does have a few cuts. HL1 fits, though.

    Yeah, the reboot of it is pretty but hollow; it lacks the thoughtful design that made the earlier ones so good. Dishonoured pulls quite heavily from the originals and the original Deus Ex in terms of...

    I agree with your point, but Eve isn't actually that great an example as virtually nobody uses the Eve market in the "lets buy stuff at A, take it sell it at point B" manner which the Elite series do...

    Sorry to butt in like this, but is Richard Burns Rally still the best rallying sim?

    It's all about WEC (as much as I love WRC, it's a bit one-sided atm). How is WRX shaping up, I haven't been paying attention?

    Technically isn't the road noise limit whatever a police officer deems too loud rather than a Decibel limit so those ridiculous cans aren't always illegal on road.

    To a degree, yes - to take an example, the balcony entrance in The Sword in the first game is a designed usage of it. But the original Thief games were made with a distinct almost simulation-like...

    People may overestimate how much tactical awareness it actually had, but it was one of the first big games to use Goal Oriented Action Planning so it did actually move things forward quite a bit.
