    @alexjhh

    Quit Valkyria Chronicles on the fourth mission, playing ToME, should be working on his thesis. I'm confused, are you me? Seriously ,that is just eerie.

    The number of bundles that come out where I've never heard, even in passing, of a single one of the games involved is really fascinating to me. It's like there's a whole tier of almost sub-indie...

    Having lost three halfling archers in a row in ToME, I'm taking the hint and switching to something more n00b-frindly: a dwarven bulwark. Things seem to be going much more smoothly now, and this...

    Interesting. Top-down third person exploration and first person blobber combat, that's kind of a strange combination. No reason it shouldn't work, though. I'll have to give that one a try.

    Comparing Grimrock 2 and M&M X is comparing apples and carrots, they're not remotely the same thing. The real-time nature of Grimrock (and the odd, artificial dancing around that goes with it) is...

    Grimrock 2 doesn't do the same thing at all, sadly. Real time and turn based blobbers are two very different things. I'd love to see a turn-based equivalent of Grimrock 2, I could really do without...
