    But nearly all these games also require you to pay $40-60 up front, plus expansions. Either/or would probably be fine, but not both.

    In the days of Ultima Online and EverQuest, servers and...

    The gog.com/galaxy page is terribly confusing on Linux. Scroll down, and a "Download Galaxy" button appears, which simply takes you back to the top of the page, which has no download links. Had to...

    Just got another "A game on your wishlist is on sale!" email from Steam. No price, not even a % discount. I really hope you're right that this is just a temporary bug.

    Years ago, I stopped going...

    Every time someone in a mess mentions that they're "working hard", I will always always think of George W. Bush in the 2004 debates. Also, that's a lot of work on things that aren't paying your...

    When a man is tired of Dwarf Fortress, he is tired of life.

    I'd really love a TIE Fighter style game with a true dynamic campaign. With a little bit of creativity and technical work, you could...

    Don't really care about the minor annoyance of extra bloatware to remove, but similar to Android doing a promotion with Nestle, this just makes Microsoft look cheap and tacky at best. And that's...

    Actually, I suspect this might have been a test bed for a new system allowing (nearly) anyone to sell stuff on Steam. That was probably part of the motivation for doing it. Strangely, their curation...

    If you're using Steam, you can right-click the game and do "backup game files". I only recently discovered that feature.

    Well, it helped me discover the window resolution option in their DOSBox Configurator, which is cool. I greatly prefer playing older games in a 1280x960 window (ie, VGA doubled), rather than full...

    Except in many cases, the EULA on the mod tools is the only real claim Bethesda has. I'm not a lawyer. I haven't spoken to a lawyer on this subject, but I'm just going to make some fairly basic...

    My favorite memory of GTA is still the mission in Vice City where you have to assassinate someone on a golf course, which confiscated all your weapons if you went through the entrance. The most...

    But again, the problem remains: who really wants the shit deal of 25% of however much people are willing to pay for mods? Probably a few people who were making mods anyway (eg, SkyUI), and a whole...

    Yeah, that's what I was trying to say.

    On the other hand, I think there's an interesting alternate reality where mod makers could earn 60% or more. You still partly destroy the hobbyist modding...

    Maybe. It might be interesting to have small companies doing serious modding, beyond what hobbyists can reasonably accomplish. But that's clearly impossible when the game publisher is taking an...

    Any CC license with the Non-Commercial clause would fit the bill. You can commercialize most open source stuff if you jump through a few hoops, even GPL, but CC-BY-NC would explicitly prohibit that.

    Yes! It's one of very few fantasy RPGs with an actual sense of scale. Plus you could climb everywhere and steal everything.

    And the travel system had some nice flavor (fast or slow, stay at inns...

    That's a pretty accurate description of FreeMarket.

    Yeah. DA2 was trying to be something different, but repeatedly failing or going backwards in various ways.

    My favorite example of this is how it dealt with vendor trash and fetch quests....

    Sure, why not. Just think more along the lines of Hearthstone rather than a $60 box release. You could add a ton of AAA-grade polish to just about any type of game.

    XCOM is a good role model too....

    I've been confusing these two for months, but really all the zombie game titles are blurring into one indistinct mass. So much death.

    Anyway, how's the DLC for State of Decay? "Breakdown" sounds...

    Yes! I love cities, and it kills me that basically every city in videogames is tiny and/or empty. That includes Kirkwall in DA2, even though it was the primary setting.

    Modern cities are great...

    It's probably the slow animations more than anything. Doing a solo run in Jeff Vogel's top-down 2D Exile games was a lot of fun, partly because your one character got a whole party's worth of XP....

    Divinity: Original Sin has some of my favorite turn-based combat in any RPG. I have mixed feelings about the rest of the game, but the combat is sort of Avernum plus clever elemental interactions....

    DA:O was a somewhat simplified but really enjoyable tactical RPG. Casting AoE spells, positioning your rogue for backstab, all great stuff. It's so weird that they've basically turned it into an MMO...
