    The game seems interesting (though I've not had a chance to play it), but I've always found this "cultural appropriation" thing to be a bit of a ridiculous concept when taken to these kind of...

    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.

    Y'know, after however many years of doing this I'd have thought they'd have got it so that at least the purchases would go through even if the downloads ended up being at 56k speeds. But nope, I'm...

    It's really annoying me, I know I've seen a programme that had the same format and almost exactly the same touchstones but can't find any reference to it.

    Of course it mentions the ZX Spectrum, '80s bedroom coders and Elite. It's obligatory for any of this type of coverage in Britain.

    Sure, the internet's generally a better source for specialist coverage and that goes for more than just games.

    Take cars, for example; the level of detail that Top Gear is pitched at hasn't been...

    The problem with it was just how familiar it all was; it's exactly the kind of programme that's been made every time someone at a TV channel has gone "oh, games are a thing, maybe we should do a show...

    Drab palettes in post-apocalyptic settings are a cheap and lazy crutch for people who take the "Oh, just make it look like Mad Max 2" approach.

    I find the best ones of these are usually games that are all dynamically done, but I thought this playthrough of Hatoful Boyfriend was great (though...

    What people aren't telling you about 6 & 7 is that the gameplay boils down to mashing the A and S keys while walking backwards and its mostly padding. Its still strangely compelling, and the music is...

    The key point is that its definitely a land-grab; the cycling thing only works if you've got enough small surroundings. Once things start solidifying, it becomes a bit difficult to make headway. I've...
