    Yeah, I've seen them around the place and elsewhere as well. It's the same people as Evony, sure enough.

    (On a related note, I was disappointed to find that this thread wasn't, as I expected, about someone being trolled in an actual game of Diplomacy.)

    Yes, it's limited by the realm's crown authority, you can only start an elective faction if it's at 'Autonomous Vassals' (the weakest).

    Yeah, but if you're developing for iOS, I think it's probably more important to have people with experience in working with Objective-C – which they presumaby have at the Mobile division, because...

    Well, why would they? On a purely intuitive level, it seems fairly credible that the Mobile division would be responsible for developing a mobile game. Especially since the Eidos Montreal probably...

    Sir, I have literally no idea who you are, or why all of you are even having your little kerfuffle here in the first place – but I must certainly commend you on your taste in desserts. That looks...

    Apparently the Square Enix mobile division will be producing it "with collaboration" from the Deus Ex team, so I can't see it taking all that much time or resources away from the 'real' games.

    Would suggest trying out a few em dashes here and there, just for the variety.

    As a potential X3 alternative, take a look at Limit Theory. It's a Kickstarter-funded procedurally-generated space sim with trading, fleet management, station building and a number of other X3-esque...

    Internet rages should be expected for any announcement regardless of content. Because Internet.

    Yes, perhaps. And certainly the different NPCs, especially the nobles and the city guildmasters, could use some more variety in their dialogue, it's all a bit too generic at the moment. But...

    It doesn't even make that much sense, since Windows (including Win games) can run perfectly fine on a Mac using Bootcamp. And for that matter, you can run most DOS games in Mac OS using Boxer or a...

    I don't think it's possible to have the same type or style of writing in a game like Mount & Blade. Unlike Conquistadors, which has a rather strict storyline, M&B is pure sandbox, so the writing has...

    The unpleasant word here is "exclusive". I don't mind EA producing Star Wars games as such, but after the Disney merger, it was hoped that there might be an opportunity to inject some new life into...

    The wage gap article – a bunch of extremely sweeping conclusions, based on some third-hand numbers that were nowhere near sufficient to support them. I'd like to see some recognition of that, but...

    Sure enough, but the least they could do is acknowledge that mis-step. Like a real news outlet would publish a correction or retraction when an error has been made.

    It's not just the problems with the statistics as such, though those are bad enough. As far as I can tell, he didn't even have the actual numbers from the survey, but only a third-hand summary...
