    I really don't get the "I identify with male characters more" argument. I can't remember the last time I played a female in a game and there was the side quest about how much of a bummer periods...

    I pick a mixture, although female probably wins out more often. I expect it is down to the fact that the hero's journey story that games predominantly feature is traditionally led by a male...

    I expect you are right. Book 2 has felt like it was setting a lot of threads in place, so it does make it a little difficult to talk about. It almost felt like a cliffhanger as much as the end of...

    No one play Book 2 or did no one feel the need to comment? There hasn't even been a post on the front page about this being released.

    Which is a shame, as it continues the good quality of the...

    Thanks for the list. I've played The Swapper, Brothers and Limbo, all of which are fine games. As puzzle games, I would say Brothers and Limbo are too simplistic to compare. The Swapper is a good...

    Said it perfectly. I bought it for around about £15 at release (think it was a day or two before release after reading the RPS Wot I Think, so was discounted,) and thought it was well worth the...

    I don't feel so bad about completing it after about 8 minutes then. I got to the exit around 4-5 minutes, but only at 78%. had to backtrack loads to get the necessary kills.

    Well, no (I don't think I said that you would.) I would expect those accusing you of it and acting on it, by confiscating the goods from those that bought them from you, would have some evidence and...

    I think if writing about games wants to be taken seriously, then they should certainly up there game more. I know it is probably a tired argument now, but you don't see Transformers getting the...

    The first and second game is available right now, so give those a go. The first can be a bit of a slog at times though, so might be best just to go ahead with the second. Without the first, you...

    Does seem as if this year might be the time to upgrade. My system is 4 years old sometime this January, excluding the addition of a SSD and extra 4GB of RAM, bringing it to 8. Which isn't bad, but...

    AV Receiver Losing Sound Options

    Not really sure if this is the place to ask about this or whether a forum on sound systems might be better, but I have a suspicion that the fault lies with my computer and not the AV receiver.

    I really liked RUSE. I came to it very late, so didn't play any of the multiplayer, but I even found the campaign to be really enjoyable.

    I've always found the balance that CoH struck between old school and modern RTS to be its strength. There is still that escalation as you progress through the game, but you aren't solely thinking...

    I've been wondering about city builders too, so would like to see opinions. Although, I think I will probably just wait for Cities Skyline, which looks ace.
