    AFAIK they host the servers using Amazon cloud, so geographic location shouldn't be an issue at least. Netcode is ok, I think, but there are still occasional hitches visible; mostly during jumps, or...

    Still haven't decided on anything, to be honest; the 13-14" market seems pretty dead for anything that isn't overtly business-y (which would be fine if there was an option for something like the Iris...

    Fair enough; the predominant aspect of reports has been the stable state of each beta build, rather than reporting issues et al.

    But reporting bugs isn't a problem for me - even if it's only one...

    I'd say it was perfect, except for the ending (whilst a great platform for reams of mods, I remember my literal reaction at the end was to say 'oh, is that it?' in a disappointed tone). In terms of...

    Mmm, good point. I don't have a problem filing bug reports, personally, although it's something I didn't really consider. I had been under the impression the current state was almost as much a...

    So, er, what stage is Elite Dangerous at in terms of playability - I mean, is it like Kerbal, where it's not officially finished but content rich enough to be worth the extra 15?

    Safari / Diving / Dinosaur games?

    As in, are there any good ones on PC?

    I'm specifically meaning the sort of non-violent (or optionally violent at least) type like Endless Ocean on the Wii, or Afrika on the PS3; something I can...

    I had a look at the Surface 3 and AMD using models, but I think they're a bit weak for me (not sure about the ability to upgrade the former, too).

    Driver performance under Linux isn't a big...
  12. Laptop that can run games but isn't a _gaming_ laptop

    I'm looking for recommendations on manufacturers/builders for a 13-14" (preferably) laptop; I used to have a (slightly upgraded) MSI GX640 gaming laptop that just broke catastrophically.

    I don't...

    Er, isn't that a bit like comparing IL-2 against an RTS? They're entirely different genres, arguably even if you move the fleet management aspects into a typical space sim viewpoint.

    World of Goo. To date, it's the only PC game I've been able to get my otherwise games-phobic wife to play (which she did, nigh-obsessively, through most of the OCD challenges). Also, possibly the...

    Max Payne 3 has a brilliant but very short section set in an airport - http://youtu.be/L3o-z5Xw-F4. (the rest of the game was soundtracked brilliantly - IMO - by the same band, similar to a movie...

    Pff, my first moon lander didn't have a lander - I just jumped in the air and grabbed the side. Has to be said, the only other successful landing (with a much nicer, ladder equipped, lander) did end...

    Have you played any of the games before?

    Because that's the key thing. I went through the first ones (CoD, the expansion, CoD2, Cod4:MW), and they're all more or less the same thing; which is why...

    Dirt 2 still has GFWL with, AFAIK, no confirmed plans to remove it - so probably not too surprising it's not in there.

    I have been, somewhat oddly*, playing the Kerbal Space Program demo. Partly because it's surprisingly addictive (and I regret not getting it in the Steam sale), but mostly because my daughter loves...

    It'd probably help if they didn't have the 'more than 2000 games on sale' bit persisting in the banner. Is it just me, or is this the first time they've actually stopped the regular discounts before...

    Natch, it's the stuff that wasn't on flash or daily deals (or that lost community votes). C'est la vie - I just wish the front page had been clearer about exactly when the sale ended (whether it was...

    It's kind of annoying, IMO - I'd been waiting until today before making a decision on buying some stuff and..well, no chance now. I always find it really confusing as to when Steam sales actually...

    I'm mostly playing stuff for trading card purposes on Steam, largely as a mechanism to filter my vast unplayed library. Although I've not actually bought anything this sale round.

    Sounds a shame (need a space-sim fix), but good to know. I'll skip it for the moment then.

    At the risk of diverting the topic, is there anything (complete or in a reasonably featured early...
