    I'd say it is a worthwhile wait for the largest individual laptop tech advancement of the last three years.

    Now is a bad time to buy any ultraportables. Haswell hits in two months, runs cooler and can be reasonably expected to prolong battery life by 50% or so in normal use. GPU performance is going up a...

    With a request like this, it would usually help to have a bit more background.

    Timely thread. I don't have enough strength to play anything, temps were 38.6 Celcius and rising last I checked.

    You ignored my point about this being the cheapest possible genre to create an awesome-looking game in. It would be fine if it sold 1/20th of what a high profile AAA manshoot does. I recall reading...

    Nah, packaging manure and successfully selling it for 60-80 euros a box is not retarded. It's art.

    Where they really failed is that engine. Long development time, complicated tech leading to the...

    I don't buy that. The "Star Wars" stamp sells stuff. X-Wing/TIE Fighter games themselves have stellar reputation. You'd get an entire nerd army backing you up if you set out to develop a serious...

    Bringing the mechanical improvements to the PC, minus anything that actually requires touchscreen, would not be much work.

    Day[9] knows his stuff, but 90% of that particular video is not even close to beginner-relevant material. Many other Newbie Tuesday episodes are a better fit, like episode #1 here....

    Dead Herald, Labbes gives plenty of solid advice, but I'd recommend ignoring this particular bit because you realistically can't make that judgment yet. You can almost always get away with the basic...

    It was a lot of lulz, but I think what's more remarkable about AQ2 is how substantial all the generic weapons - pistol, shotgun, SMG, assault rifle - feel in that game. Of course a big part of the...

    Action Quake 2 and FEAR are both great in their own ways. I don't feel like anything else I've played comes even close. Nearly every gun feels unique and highly satisfying to shoot a dude with.

    We are probably looking at very different aspects of those games. I have only played D3 for an hour on a friend's account, so I have no real insight into it. But it did seem to have interesting...

    Blizzard excels at crafting solid and satisfying 3rd person combat mechanics. They have done fantastic work in that regard both in WoW and the Diablo series. Why don't they, once in a while, offer...

    Of course there is, it's just a soft limit. Micro opportunities with best payoffs are exhausted first, and spending more time and focus is met with very quickly diminishing returns.
