Another spare System Shock 2 GOG key that needs a home.
** is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything.
Please reply here when it's used.

Thanks both - a bit to think about, but I'm now very sure I'll enjoy the game. @Spinoza, says something about games these days that I didn't think to look for a demo - now downloading. And @Penguin -...

There's a bunch of Graviteam stuff on sale at gamersgate. I've never really tried my hand at this corner of strategy games, but I don't mind something complicated and/or a bit obtuse to get into (by...

Alpha Protocol. It's been lurking in my Steam library for about 2 years, and I've finally had a proper sit down with it. It's really rather good. The much-criticised combat and stealth elements seem...

Train Simulator, my excuse being that my 3-year-old loves it.
I know the game isn't especially realistic. For a start that First Great Western train is moving rather than stopped dead half...

I haven't played WoW since shortly after Cataclysm came out. I stopped when my first kid was born, and the second followed not very long after. I have a lot of fond memories going back to vanilla...

I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it, have fun!
Happy trucking - it's great when you want a bit of escapism but don't feel like violence. I've edited the remaining link to fix the...

A good home is needed for some keys. First up Insurgency. Go on, there must be someone left who wants one. Replace ** with "EM".

I hear you. I turned 40 this year, and what with the random aches and pains, new-found refusal of my spine to bend and suddenly noticing how expensive everything is, coupled with the psychological...

I picked up Outlast from GOG. I'm a pretty avid reader of horror stories, love a good, scary film and found Amnesia creepy and very atmospheric but not actually terrifying, so I didn't think it would...
Metro 2033 might scratch this itch - there's a definite sense of being on a journey through the Metro with some of how it all plays out influenced by what you do in certain parts of the game. It's...
Quinns' "Captain Smith" Mount and Blade diary (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/tag/captain-smith/) is hysterically funny and quite possibly my favourite gaming article ever.
True on both counts and I'll throw in another vote for an RPG set in the Firefly universe. I found Mass Effect, especially the first game, did a good job of scratching the B5 itch. The way ME1...
I'd love to make an RPG based on Luther, with LA Noire-style investigations and Mass Effectish dialogue. And Idris Elba.

My wife is, to be honest, contemptuous and thinks I'm childish, and that I should be doing something "worthwhile" instead. Only a couple of my real world friends play to any great extent, and...
@Gink they might enjoy Euro Truck Sim 2. It's often on sale and as well as the actual driving, which is very laid-back and enjoyable, you can build a trucking empire by buying and upgrading depots...

Ads are transparent by their very nature aren't they, though? In all seriousness, this whole "journalistic ethics" thing is getting a bit out of hand, and I agree with your point that it is very hard...

It seems to work that way. I managed to pay for Shadowrun Returns and Dragonfall by selling cards in the last sale. Odd, because I would have thought that during a sale more people would try to sell...

Exactly. Social change comes about through individuals in a community or group collectively changing fundamental values, assumptions and behaviours. Depending on where someone is starting from this...

Nail on the head. I've seen too many people trying to make a change fail because they preached, lectured, berated or shouted down their audience instead of engaging them, and I've seen negotiations...

I too share your fear. I have stuff on Steam, GoG and Origin that I haven't even installed yet, stuff I've installed but haven't played, stuff I stopped playing after a bit and never went back to...

I too very much appreciated the level-headed tone of the article. I'm glad it was long - this whole, sorry saga has a lot of intertwining threads that take time, effort and thought to disentangle....
Also, not entirely sure what this says about me, but...
Mass Effect 1 end credits - made the whole thing feel so epic at the end of my first play through.
