    Also Dirt/Grid's time rewind system is just the best thing if you're not a perfect pilot (like me). Much much better than having to restart the whole race over and over.

    Eh, debatable. I think OpenTTD, on top of being free, is much superior to Locomotion. Locomotion seems to have forgotten what made TTD good in the first place.

    Also, OpenTTD multiplayer is a...

    I see a lot of hate in this thread, and most of it unsubstantiated. I thought it was pretty well-established that Gal Civ 2 was one of the best 4X games of recent times? I personally largely bounced...

    Notch is also an extremely annoying "personality" in the worst sense of the word. He's loud, opinionated and has hordes of fanboys which he doesn't even attempt to deal with. Of course he's going to...

    Quite enjoyed Warlock, looking forward to trying this, but my gaming time these days is a little limited so I'd probably wait for a discount.

    I could give you a 1080p 120fps game that'd look like absolute shit. Don't let numbers fool you, just look and decide if what you see looks good.

    Mantle is a crude attempt at making graphics APIs partisan again, like in the heyday of Glide. Nothing more, nothing less.
