    If you're winning at the strategic level, then unless the Terror Mission is in an important country for you for bonuses, you can consider sacrificing the country if your squad is not up to it.

    Towns wasn't officially Early Access (EA didn't exist at the time) so it might plausibly be placed in the (large) set of "games that were released before they were properly finished". The release of...

    I'm not aware of any notable developers (that is, people who've previously produced games) failing to release an Early Access game or looking likely to fail to release. Similarly for non-notable...

    Thinking about controls, if we're talking about an adult who's never played a video game before, then games where the main interaction is using the mouse to click on things is probably the easiest:...

    Games about building things are often good. Presumably good for people with "video games are only about killing things" preconceptions (but beware that such attitudes are often fronts for the...

    I view them more as complicated optimization problems in which the data-gathering process is a mildly entertaining game. I imagine this is why I view the Diablolikes that try to incorporate more than...

    If you count them only by the final encounters they're not particularly impressive but if you look at the preceding areas you have the battle for the Citadel, the attack on the Collector base, and...

    Depends how much of it you already have I suppose. Dark Messiah is highly rated around here. I think Heroes V is OK. I haven't played Heroes VI. M&M X is reasonable. Clash of Heroes and M&M 6 are...

    This is meaningful for competition featuring randomly-selected members of the population. Presumably it can become rather less meaningful for elite competition in popular sports (or similar), where...

    The final situation (open competition and women's competition) is a fairly sensible approach. The same policy is used in chess. Whether this is actually a good idea for women's representation in the...

    The best feature of that utility sounds like the one that caps the time that has passed. I don't particularly mind the idea of stuff going on and resources being used while I'm not playing, but my...

    I'd got with the latter. If we strictly stick to DLC as meaning "downloadable content" then we have to arse around with sentences like "I bought two items of DLC". I think we can all agree that "I...

    You probably already own a few Diablolikes that you haven't played enough yet, play them and wait until Grim Dawn is finished and has a better discount.

    I seem to recall Vinraith being positive about it earlier in the thread, and Vinraith is usually right about games. I'm tempted, even though it's not really the sort of game I'd normally play (but...

    They're not currently on a daily or flash sale (and only one of them might be at some point) so it's fairly safe: the best game ever made is Baldur's Gate 2, and the second-best is Thief 2. These are...

    The flash sale ends soon, so this is slightly redundant, but for the future: if you're going to buy CK2 there's no real need to buy anything other than the base game and maybe Legacy of Rome at the...
