    Really liking Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (and I know they've basically finished the whole thing already, but Christ, it's weird having an "episodic" game where content actually releases weekly)....

    I liked what I played much more than you, but I still can't quite forgive that twist. It just kinda seems you can ignore much of the (supposed) deeper implications of the plot if you can handwave it...

    Resi 5 has nearly been transitioned to Steamworks, by the way - the achievements are visible, but going by the Steam forums it hasn't been switched over just yet.

    I look forward to trying it out...

    It did get quite a lot of glowing superlatives hurled its way by critics, IIRC.

    It had naked manbabies, godawful controls and no real point, more like. :P

    No it didn't. :P

    But yeah, plenty of Russian/ex-bloc developers make perfectly good games.

    Yeah, watching it on YouTube in HD it's the scale and the colours, IMO. The detail underneath is... good, still, it's a very pretty engine, but it's not mindblowing (the water is especially weak at...

    I kinda wish I'd finished Ace Combat: Assault Horizon when it came out (on consoles), because it is pretty fun, for all its flaws. That said, while the changes they went with are entertaining and do...

    It's nice, though not exactly photo-realistic. Matter of fact it's a little too uncanny valley for my taste - some great textures and a well-chosen colour palette but I'm not really getting the sense...

    Because Japan. Their pop culture exoticises everyone else (historical or present-day) arguably more than ours does with them.

    On the one hand, I loved Last Exile: not as much as Gankutsuou, but close, in places. I would unhesitatingly recommend it.

    On the other hand, no argument on the bold. Christ, it wasn't up to much...

    Really? I just used a shaman or whatever they're called every time, threw a couple of spirits at him to keep him distracted, job done. Tricky, but not that tricky.
