    Typically in gamebooks your character is canonically powerful to begin with. In Fighting Fantasy, for instance, even a minimum-stats character is canonically stronger than the average Orc, while a...

    The thing you have to remember here is that the people who were disagreeing with you about the bundles thing are just wrong.

    I suspect these events are mostly caused by social media and lazy/unethical reporters. If you read the Letters page of the Metro for a while, you'll observe that there will be a few people who are...

    I guess you have to choose between being a reference and being a textbook, and Wikipedia chooses to be a reference for the most part.

    Enjoy yourself!

    Well, this is a GG thread, so the only logical thing to do is ignore the GG component and let's talk about Wikipedia use.

    I use wiki quite a lot, but that's because I'm a statistician so it's...

    Also don't play it with loud excitable French girls.

    Presumably, since keys aren't goods, Ubisoft have the advantage that they don't really have any obligation to allow resold keys to activate games on their service. So, they could in principle...

    They might just be doing it on a key-by-key basis. That is, all keys are fine apart from those that are specifically traced to fraudulent transactions. If some sites are occasionally fraudulent and...

    I'd count having multiple endings, some of which are Bad, as having objectives that I'd normally wish to satisfy. I imagine I'm in a fairly small group that is very clear that some things should...

    Just ban pepperfez, Karrius, strange_headache, and HeadClot, delete any other post with Gamergate in it, and we can probably happily go forward from there.

    In my opinion the forum should introduce a rule that anyone who directly refers to Gamergate and/or Gamergaters has their post removed and repeated violations leads to a ban. I'd make an exemption...

    I'd avoid feeling obliged to do every quest in BG2, that'll probably be exhausting.

    Assuming that there are one or more objectives that a player would normally wish to satisfy, and assuming that satisfying these objectives is non-trivial, anyone saying they're not games is wrong,...

    I'm away from internet until Tuesday evening, I'll put something up then.

    I probably wouldn't have chosen the "best" ending even if I'd had the choice to. To be honest, I think it's more-or-less a feature of Mass Effect that your Paragon/Renegade choices are not simply...
  18. From the "does this look good for your career"...

    From the "does this look good for your career" point of view, I think that press response to games probably does help you.

    From a "personal pride" point of view, I've never worked in PR and don't...

    Every turn-based game team should have "make animations skippable" posted next to every screen in the building.

    First of all you're probably looking at job security rather than hourly income as something that a positive review would help your hypothetical friend do. Also, if someone works on a project then...

    I probably wouldn't call the War Assets thing a punishment. To me it seems reasonable in principle that some character personalities to be denied some narrative arcs and even be sent down routes that...

    Equating them with movie reviews is pretty generous, I'd equate them with user reviews written by a user with a writing qualification.

    The first step is probably to avoid mentioning GG, SJW, or whatever in one's posts. The second step is probably to avoid replying to any post that mentions them. That should do it. This will create a...

    I typically dislike such systems, although they can give fun meta-gaming. But I generally prefer to make my levelling choices based around concept ("I want to be a wizard with some roguish...

    I suppose I ought to be worried about this sort of thing, but basically video games journalists are too unimportant to care too much about. For me, the average person on this forum has more gravitas...
