    I was just surprised and somewhat impressed to see RPS choose any strategy game as their GOTY, the genre gets very little play on the front page. To my thinking it was the wrong one (like many others...

    Still playing and really enjoying Tales of Maj'Eyal. Running a dwarven alchemist right now, and the difference in play style between this and all previous characters is remarkable. Honestly, the...

    Genuinely curious which subreddits those are, in my experience reddit is nothing but noise.

    This is your weekly reminder that Steam is a rental service, not a games store. There are no products, only "services" that lack most of the benefits for the customer that term usually connotes. You...

    A little from column A, a little from column B. Generally, the decision will be based on which character has the more appealing aesthetic options, the better voice acting (if that's a factor), and...

    My thoughts verbatim. I'll be grabbing it for Skulls at the $1 line. Already have Endless Space, and nothing else here is of interest.

    What? How does an old man shaking his fist connote grumpiness and a hostility to modern.... oh now I see it. ;)

    I think you might have me confused with someone else, Devin. :)

    I quite like AoW3, yes, but I wouldn't say I dislike most recent games. I've enjoyed Qvadriga, AoW3, Creeper World 3, the Hexcells...

    Potentially interesting "roguelike" sale over at Humble, for all that it doesn't really seem to contain many games that I'd call roguelikes. Sunless Sea on discount is somewhat tempting, although...

    Yes, there are some really good bits of design here. It's funny that you've already unlocked archmage, 30 hours in (and having gotten a character to level 25) I've not hit the condition for that one....

    I actually tend to locate the highest recurrent price in the recent past and use that. Patience is rewarded.

    It looks like the DLC's all count as "unplayed" regardless of the status of their host game, which skews the "played/unplayed" graph a fair bit. I don't suppose there's any easy fix for that? It's an...

    SotS is lovely, but it really is closer to an RTS than your typical 4X game (I've always thought it did what Sins was trying to do much better than Sins ever did). Certainly, no one is playing it for...

    The hunger and dying of old age parts are great, but the single life brutally punishes exploration and innovation. I already know I'll play that game as conservatively as humanly possible and never...

    I remember that one, actually. Have it installed, but haven't spent much time with it yet. Does ADOM have the limited lives thing, or is it pure roguelike in that regard?
