    "people do not pay to to see the story of Half-Life 2"

    If this premise were true you would be right and i would be wrong. But it's not true. I can hope for Valve to make a great new game with new...

    I agree with those who think Valve (and GRRR) owe those who crave new releases or at least news about the franchises they support. But not because they're customers - customers don't get anything...

    If it is just a decision regarding the optimum use of what must of course be a limited commissioning budget, I do hope they'll say so. I understand that, as a private company, they don't have to...

    This is fantastic. It's like one of those EVE diaries but with even more soap-opera level conspiracies. I love how all these new people are called things like General, Bayonet, and Panzer. And...

    What's going on with those? (NB: not complaining about RPS's handling of them, I imagine it's a nightmare trying to keep them away while not blocking legitimate comments or being too quick to get rid...

    I just bought Warlock and all its DLC for about $9.80 on Green Man Gaming. Registers on Steam. Probably going to save it for a rainy day but glad to have it for that price.

    I loved the magic system in Grimrock. :) If I were to play it again, I'd play two mages - the rogue didn't add anything to my party at all; I don't see much use for rogue skills where the party is...

    Thanks for posting this - I am very excited by this deal. Even though I have owned most of these games, I've lost most of them in various moves. The only one I want is NWN2: MotB and I'm happy to pay...

    Loved Morrowind - top three game of all time for me.

    As for Skyrim, I just couldn't get immersed. The requirement to choose sides to advance the main quest seemed horribly underdetermined to me....

    His update message on the Kickstarter page is actually kind of moving. I feel for him, and I don't think he was really scamming - though it was horribly irresponsible, and quite probably actionable,...

    How very shocking - and how awful for the staff involved. Me, I loved (really, really loved) the first two Dungeon Siege games, so I am sad about this, but a lot of their output has been - well,...

    I am wildly excited for this, but I'm annoyed that the novella is only available at the $50 level because I had already chosen the $35 level (even when the $20 level was available) and I think...

    Ha, this really plays into the subjective/objective debate in the comments on the Sunday Papers today.

    I prefer a slightly distant camera. Best of all, of course, would be the choice of how far away the camera should be, which Sacred,, for one, gave you. (Maybe Divine Divinity did too?)

    Definitely get the FOV and other things-enhancer program if you do buy it. It makes the game more playable and more beautiful. I too hate head-bob (and it took me multiple starts, weeks apart, to...

    I really loved this game. It was, along with Fallout: New Vegas, my game of the year so far. It's an RPG that's close to an ARPG, really. I thought it had a good story, was really immersive, had...
