    I thought it was amazingly polished but largely dull, dull, dull (thought the game was too easy, thought the world was boring, thought the Nemesis system was wildly over-rated, could hardly have...

    It's supposed to count anything you do directly, apart from whatever happens to unconscious characters. If they die - for any reason - it counts as you killing them. You're not penalised for...

    Were there none? Really? I forget - it's been a while. Agreed that there should have some if so, certainly.

    On the ending, though, I don't think Alex meant her epiphany to be quite that...

    Yeah, you can probably see this coming, but... couldn't disagree more, basically. Certainly off the top of my head I can't think of any way things could have gone any differently and still worked as...

    Not only that, one of them's playing Clash of Clans and didn't try and post just to plug their YouTube channel or beg for referral codes!

    The thing is that doesn't work for me. Invariably I go non-lethal in just about every game that seriously makes it an option (although I'm sure there's been an exception somewhere along the line)...

    Not for me it's not. Oh well. Maybe Hellblade will be good Ninja Theory (DmC) rather than bad Ninja Theory (Enslaved, most of Heavenly Sword).

    Braid is awesome, apart from the bits where the story is terrible, nigh-on meaningless waffle* and you have to have solved every puzzle in the game to get any kind of ending at all (and yet you earn...

    Talos isn't quite on Braid's level for brain-twisting meatiness, but when I know I can have great puzzles with a fantastic, rather than godawful/half-assed story, in a game that doesn't actively...

    The thing is, I pretty much guessed the spoiler inside a few minutes, I'm fairly certain more than one review hinted at it or gave it away entirely, and the game doesn't exactly make it out to be a...

    I can't remember exactly how it works but yes, IIRC it's relatively easy to get the different endings; you don't have to play the entire game again or anything like that.

    Oh, and while I don't...
