    I sincerely don't see any of that. The Majesty games (also set in Ardania) certainly always had a light tone, but I wouldn't call them humorous. I never even got "light" from Warlock 2. I didn't...

    What did you dislike about it? The new DLC is just a mode that removes time pressure, basically. It's an easy purchase for me because I adore the original game.

    That might at least begin to explain why I don't get the appeal: it never would have occurred to me that Warlock was funny. Hell, I honestly didn't even realize it was trying to be funny. People...

    All correct. In 2, the AI is still braindead, the ridiculously hard alternate planes are required content (and not paced sensibly, so you often get stalled for a hundred turns while you try to build...

    I was so excited about Blade of Destiny until it released as an incomplete, broken mess. Then I totally lost track of it. I don't suppose anyone knows if it ever got patched up to playability? The...

    Quantum Conundrum is $3 as part of the Humble Store's "Summer Games Done Quick" sale (which apparently has something to do with a speedrunning competition - that took me awhile to figure out)....

    Good advice all around, Gus. You hit on several important things that slipped my mind - there's just a lot going on in this game!



    Yup, to the point that with simultaneous turns you can emulate...

    The answer to your first question depends tremendously on the settings you chose. If you have few AI, a really big map, and/or very low difficulty AI (who don't expand quickly) you could readily go a...

    Seriously? Well, there's a purchase I won't be making, if that's true.

    One possible source of your disconnect: the campaigns aren't that great, the "real game" is in the random maps.

    Based on your reaction to the demo, I don't think you'd enjoy the main game. If you think the philosophical stuff is "pretentious" and you're as opposed to puzzle elements like light beams and boxes...

    As mentioned, this is probably the greatest failure of the "demo," it utterly fails to create the atmosphere of the game itself.



    As I recall, there is at least one secret in the demo - I...

    Talos's demo really does under serve a great game, though I don't really know how they could make it better. On some level, I feel like they should have put a playback puzzle in there, but then I...

    The light puzzles are very literally the tip of the iceberg. The puzzle variety is substantial, don't go thinking the demo encompasses the breadth of the game - and it gives you almost none of the...

    You should really try the second one some time when it's inexpensive, the balance of things has been shifted in a much more OMD-like direction in most regards. The sniper rifle is no longer king...

    Anno is ordered and lovely, "jigsaw" is apt because it all fits together so damn elegantly if you do it right. I find it extremely satisfying.
