    No it's not. Regional pricing is simply a nice way of saying "milking the market". European jobs tend to have higher salaries, and Europeans in general tend to have more disposable income, so you...

    It was Cannon Fodder in trench coats. With less dying screams.

    Actually The Bill of Rights gives the right to bear arms to British Citizens. Subsequent laws mean that about the only arms you can carry under it are the brown bess, and even then you'll need a...

    Given your earlier statements re Dungeons and Dragons you might want to try Descent 2nd Edition or Mice and Mystics. They're both dungeon crawlers though much less setup time than D&D (if you...

    According to the missive I got from Microsoft they're retiring MS points in favour of actual money, so it may not be the death of GFWL so much as rebranding.

    Misogyny? The only men in the game are portrayed not only as inferior to, but subservient to the women. And there's not one slab of beef in speedos on the roster. I'd think misandry would be somewhat...

    Not really, they were against the Iraq invasion too but it didn't make much difference. Generally speaking objections in the international community only get listened to when they provide a...

    Doubtful. You have to agree to the subscriber agreement (or at least claim you have) prior to handing over money, and the agreement explicitly states precisely what you're paying for and what that...

    Amazon's stock control does not perform instant updates on the web interface. If something sells rapidly enough then they can run out of stock long before the sign goes up. It's an inherent problem...

    Yes, but to my mind this would point to it being worse than something which is immediately accessible. In fact it sounds more like the enjoyment is derived from the structure rather than the actual...

    No, you can easily incorporate complicated mathematics, you just find a way to do it that doesn't require the players to do all the working out in their heads.

    The Ottomans and others managed it too. Really it's not until genocide became somewhat frowned upon that the region became a problem, primarily because the traditional method of either eliminating or...

    Assuming the key system is compatible Steam do offer the option of letting you generate keys or use existing non-Steam keys. It's not free though, and there's a bunch of hoops required to be jumped...

    You weren't. The DLC has been cheap on Gamersgate, direct from Positech and about a hundred other sources over the same period (in fact Gamersgate has been cheaper than Steam for the most part, it's...

    Nah, ideology does all that now. The happiest ideology generates unhappiness in the other two ideologies. Some of the picks for an ideology can also affect this.

    Agrarian societies tend to have a lot more free time than any other, for what should be pretty obvious reasons. It's why most of humanities great monuments got built when we were still primarily...

    I don't think it's the case that it's bad at air and naval warfare, more that most of the time it doesn't bother building a navy or air force to speak of. Changed a bit in BNW since it now seeks to...

    I reckon you've just been playing too many FPS games, so no, AAA isn't dying since it constitutes more than just shooters. I found Metro Last Light pretty good, but then it and it's predecessor are...

    Fairly sure they charge for stuff to keep the servers running and use updates as a way of increasing sales, rather than charging for the updates themselves. MMO's generally go through updates because...

    If that's the case I'd suggest looking for a job as a project manager. I'm sure any company would spend good money for someone who can magically prevent the inevitable over-budget, over-time and...

    I'd be incredibly surprised if non-US players accounted for more than 50% of the playerbase.

    That's because bug fixing is a matter of cost to fix versus market importance. Most of our products have problems with non-English language and setup. They're unlikely to ever get fixed though,...

    So do authors. I'm still not seeing where this disjunct between mechanics and story come into it.

    That's not quite what D&D was modelled on. It's also somewhat odd to associate the construct with D&D; the Iliad is also concerned with advancement, acquisition and duffing people up and I'm petty...
