    Indeed. And that progression was one-way--it expanded your possibilities without restricting them. Not that there's anything wrong with restriction, but some games restrict players almost out of a...

    I've played a number of games that let you respec pretty much on demand. It's usually fantastic. Guildwars did this to great effect. Made playing with your build genuinely interesting which in turn...

    And here I've never thought of character progression as the heart of RPGs. Just a certain subset. As a long-time table gamer, in my head it's the "role-play" part of RPG that means the most. That...

    Precisely. All that plastic/metal/whatever is going to cost you a crap ton. Even large 2D printing jobs can be cheaper to outsource and 2D printing is way further up the curve than 3D printing. I...

    In practice I just don't see everyone "staying in a hugbox on topic" in threaded forums.

    Hmm. I'm not sure that really makes sense. There's nothing to stop the top-level comments from getting side-tracked, redundant, or confusing. Good visual design helps, but only so much.

    Whereas in a threaded discussion where entire conversations never get derailed and walls of text do not and cannot exist?

    Come off it.

    Who wants conversations that stay painfully rigidly on...

    I really prefer just quoting. Nesting is great for, well, Slashdot. News websites, digests, support forums--places where information is being collected and curated. They're not very good for...

    They may have changed that recently, actually. I wasn't asked for a login after the most recent client update. :)

    I didn't have problems on release either. Some people did because, surprise, computers are complicated and everyone has different ones. Maybe the echo-chamber of Origin hate probably amplified the...

    I really don't understand the Origin hate. It's almost entirely reactionary. I mean ... it's interface isn't as good for large-volume libraries but that's also less of a thing with Origin to begin...

    I'm not sure I like the interface, but the community makes good use of Slashdot's threading. They seem used to it and know how to use to well to make discussions work. I kind of like things this way...

    Eh, if I had one, I'd totally play my console on a large monitor. Local multiplayer would be bit disappointing but I've played local multiplayer on disappointedly sized TVs for ages via PC, laptop,...

    Wait ... they didn't change the download queue though. So it just means you can START multiple installs at once. Still very good and important, but I'm still miffed they took away simultaneous...

    Christ. Anthropomorphic animals are just that. Anthropomorphic robots and aliens are just that. Can they be sexual? Sure. Is that weird? Not really--see "anthropomorphic." If they can be made to look...

    You have to install the game. I guess I don't find the client that much of an imposition. You already need an EA account to redeem it trough the Origin store, and have needed an account for many...

    I though this was just going to be for people who already had Sims 2, getting the ultimate. Maybe they realized that was going to screw over a lot of people who owned Sims 2 but had no way of making...

    Wait, you can download multiple games at once again? I was miffed when they took that feature away.

    Windows 8.1 fixed my incompatibility issues with Sonar X2 and Windows 8. Not everyone had them, but it was common enough to be upsetting there wasn't a patch. 8.1 fixed my issues, though, so I...

    My sarcasm was meant to illustrate my bafflement, and was not intended to be mean spirited or mocking. I apologize if you interpreted it thusly.

    I was confused as to why you seemed to think this...

    I can't parse this paragraph. Can you rephrase maybe? I really don't understand what you're trying to say. Complain about the console buyer in particular. Not sure what you're on about.

    Er ... that doesn't make any sense. Surely those are the same thing unless you think there's some kind of space-age-fancy-pants objective measure of how good the economy of it is. What you're willing...

    Indeed. A lot of my favorite games are on consoles--Smash Brothers 64/Melee and Yoshi's Island come to mind--but I'm not about to fork out for every console every generation just to make sure I don't...
