    I'd just like to say that while I don't agree with all of your points, this is pretty much spot on. People are like lab instruments, in a way. If you want the real numbers, you don't go in there...

    If you have a decent PC, as you should, pretty much everything from NES to the PS2-Wii+DS era are playable on emulators. Hell, I'd say they're way, way better experiences on emulators, since you can...

    Pathologic comes to mind, but wrangling sense out of the translation isn't the easiest of tasks. There's La Noire, but you can read about the problems with that game for yourself. For stealth games...

    Concept art is actually more than what Double Fine gave us, though.

    (To be fair to that idea, the act of being the first one to do it highly suggests they have some kind of idea, while being yet...

    I should also clarify : I didn't imply that Jane Jensen wants to 'copy' Dan Brown. These plots were common in quasi-historical thriller way, way before either one came along, and I actually think JJ...

    1) See above.
    2) Because few, if any, wilderness survival games include being stomped on by mammoths. (If they exist, I'd like to know about them. Seriously.)

    I'll be happy as long as they explain why the hell Joker took the Normandy out of there. With a GOOD reason, please.

    That's the only bit that caught me truly, truly off guard when I saw the...

    Star Control II. Please, do one about Star Control II. It just BEGS some sort of comic.

    'non-linear'
    'your story' 'your [insert noun here]'

    Usually because they're outright lies, or if they're true, they tend to be badly implemented. Also, I hate the idea that everything has to be...

    They tend to turn less hot if they're just as much or more of a hardcore gamer as he is, though. Strange but statistically significant observation.

    I really liked Isabela's character---she's basically the only sane person in there, aside from Aveline, and Aveline's personality doesn't make for a good bro. Isabela is my bro. (Because saying 'sis'...

    I was thinking about supporting this until I saw the line 'complex, dark plotlines ala Dan Brown.'

    Look, I know his name is the one to drop for the masses and everything, but I am seriously not...

    If you care about your money ending up actually benefiting other people, it can be pretty much the same thing to you. Not objectively, but subjectively? Yes. Of course. The return of charities is...

    I actually think giving to charity/fund for something that has the total collected amount visible is more relevant to creating change than 'drop it in the box and go'. People see a lot of people...

    Obsidian's luck with publishers is like Project Zomboid all year long, all the years ever.

    Also a lot of people seem to think they only know how to steal other people's IP and shit on them, which...

    I greatly welcome this potential return of our beloved mid-budget games. They always tend to end up my favourites, which probably has something to do with the whole 'interesting ideas we don't dare...

    I do think that your right to be different ends when it's harming other people. As is with this case. Once you let that happen, you let the slippery slope go the other way. And yes, people who voice...

    And now it's at 650,000$.

    Did anyone see Brian's twitter and the guy who pirated Wasteland long, long ago and now gave 10K back in return? That's pretty much the most heartwarming thing ever. (And...

    600,000$ now. Only a little more to go (relatively) and 34 days to do it.

    It looks like this might succeed after all, and I for one am glad for it. It'd be a shame if what happened with Schafer's...

    Of course genres still have a place today. Otherwise, how are you going to describe a 'side-scrolling multiplayer beatemup with RPG elements'? 'This is a side-scrolling game [1 use of genre] where...

    Don't be facetious. It's obviously meant that the citizens got the Statue of Liberty built. It wasn't funded by Rich Guy A. Rich Guy A merely fundraised it.

    I think you're confusing the definition...

    It doesn't have to be 'people who we don't actually see'. We could have an affable office worker phoning his wife/mom/grandma/dog and being happy, and personally it would've affected me more than the...

    Not, it's not investing, it's called patronage, and it's how you guys got the Statue of Liberty built.

    It just means that X number of people wants to see a piece of art (let's not get into the...
