Ah, see, I'm on keyboard, which might explain matters a bit. (I'm also playing via Wine, which makes using a 360 pad a bit more convoluted, since Wine doesn't do Xinput, just DirectInput (and I am...

So, finally finished Deus Ex: Hilarious Recompense. The final level is definitely a "change" from the rest of the game, and a little tedious with it (luckily, I had tons of PEPS ammo, which I'd been...

I think the key feature here is that as you get older, and have more things you need to spend your time on, tolerance for things you don't enjoy drops. (Plus, who has the time to spend...

Counter example: I tried the demo, and it doesn't appeal to me. (For the same reasons as Drayk, mostly.)
And, yes, you're probably going to note that the demo is completely different to the full...

Well, except that you're not killing people. You're "killing" arrangements of pixels. The closer that comes to resembling actually killing people, the more it becomes "like" killing people, in terms...

Essentially, yes. (I did have that thread in mind when writing my initial reply.)
Actually, this is the first of the videos that I've not had niggling issues with. I think it's a noticable improvement on the first 3, and sticks to its points more coherently and persuasively....

So, I don't necessarily disagree with the theory behind any of this (or the remainder, which I cut for length).
However, it is certainly the case that I know people who actually stopped playing...

Sure, and I do know that. It just seems like it's the most obviously "gamey" implementation of that restriction - I can't think of another situation where the seams between "game" and "narrative" are...

Still on DXHR (not the DC version, since I was far enough through this playthrough to not want to junk my save when DC came out). So far the boss fights haven't been that bad, but I've been playing...

Me too, with the starting it properly. I'm in the middle of the Montreal section (I'm trying to avoid spoilers in my descriptions here, but frankly the game's been out for long enough now, right? One...
Sure, but you still risk frustrating players as a result of the closer coupling between player skill and character skill in those circumstances. (No-one gets frustrated at low sword skill resulting...
This is probably going to repeat several peoples' experiences but:
Torchlight, Borderlands: Boredom. Despite the pet mechanic in Torchlight, I found both games produced too much vendor trash for...
Well, I remember way back when the System Shock 2 demo came out, I was so scared by the cybermonkey things creeping up on me that I never bought the game... (and still haven't).
Also in the illustrious band who bought nothing (nothing I cared about and didn't have was discounted enough, and to be honest, the steam trading cards nonsense rather put me off in general).

Humble Bundle 8 related gaming:
Played, completed, mostly-loved Thomas Was Alone (although it's one of those games where I'm not sure if I loved the game or the music/narration/etc).

Sure, that's possibly true in general. However, I don't have a current gen console (because I'm not buying a console just for a few Exclusive games) and I'm personally very sad that games of this...

I know the elevator trick. Unfortunately, I'm one of the people who're playing at a lower-than-optimal framerate, which causes several physics things (including the clipping detection that makes the...

It took me about the same time, but that's mainly because I completely ignored the puzzle before The Chase until hour 12 because I convinced myself that the actually important puzzles were elsewhere....

Fallout 3 (GOTY - but I think I still have to enable the "datafiles" for the DLC, even though they come with it, right)?
So far, I'm finding my usual difficulty with being anything other than...

I upgraded the PSU when I got the 8800GT, and it was an expensive 600W PSU at the time (it was one of the better CoolerMaster branded ones, with the precursor to the 80+ Bronze rating), so I'm...

Oh, I don't have AA or AF on. (I've never really seen a huge benefit from them.)
Indeed, since I can at least get DX:HR to play reasonably without enemies on the screen, I'm fairly sure it's not...

Cheers, that looks like vaguely the direction I was heading in, but with less confidence that I was picking the right stuff.
As far as memory goes, CAS timings are still less important than general...

Hello, good burghers of RPS.
After a long period of mostly playing indie & rather older games on my desktop PC (for example, FTL, SpaceChem, etc), I find myself in the position of once again...
Mechanical Spoiler below:
Some discussion on the 2K forums suggests that the general formula is Will/4 percent chance, with additional bonuses applied (mainly a bonus to lower ranking officers to...
