    Yeah, thanks a heap. Also just in case, you can also just enter this in the Origin client directly if you go to the redeem dialog.

    Certainly it's not a new idea. I'm pretty sure I had a program like this back on Windows 95

    Well... Portal, I guess? I didn't dislike portal as such, but after I'd seen the main gimmick the rest of the game wasn't really that entertaining, and the ending left me feeling deeply dissatisfied,...

    I have to say though, Serpent in the Staglands looks supremely unappealing and what gameplay footage I've seen makes me think it would be very tedious to actually play. But I suppose that's a matter...

    Keep in mind though that Tropico 5 will be out in May. Might be worth holding out for.

    My favorite city builder to date is Zeus. It has tons of character, both because of the various scenarios it offers and because of the way the people walking around the city will comment on the state...

    I have made a genuine attempt to play and like GalCiv 2 on three separate occasions, and I can tell you: I think it is boring, uninspired and soulless.

    A lot of people don't seem to think of it that way. Some see Kickstarter as an investment, others as little more than a pre-order system. Such views carry with them a sense of entitlement, I guess.

    So what do we think about Unity?

    A friend of mine really dislikes Unity. He claims it causes various performance problems and uses unreasonable amounts of resources. If a game uses Unity, that's enough for him not to touch it. For...

    I liked PoP 2008, including the way it ended, and I'm sad it didn't do well enough to warrant any followups. Yes, I'll admit it had its issues and certainly wasn't the masterpiece that was Sands of...

    When exactly did the Xboxes do things PCs of their times could only dream of? I must have missed that.

    All of this is true, and as I've mentioned earlier Distant Worlds suffers from typical Matrix interface snafu as well. But that only makes it all the more remarkable that Distant Worlds is fun,...

    Distant Worlds is pretty good, but you have to be willing to forgive a lot of inconvenience especially when it comes to the UI. The price point is also a problem as you need to buy every expansion if...
