    I don't see Knights of the Old Republic on your list; accidental omission? If not, they're worth playing.

    The AI war music is perfect for the game. I haven't really noticed the music in any other Arcen game.

    I believe Stapleton is suggesting that for IGN reviews, the scale is not linear. This initially seems odd, but as I propose it makes a certain sort of sense. I'm not sure that many of their readers...

    In fairness, there is something to be said for this. Imagine you're marking an essay, and you have to mark it out of 100. This is quite a daunting task, so chances are you might want to use a simpler...

    This is quite a hard topic, because most people excited about and playing AoW3 will have played the previous games, and AoW3 is really trivial to pick up if you've played the earlier games.

    On Classic I sometimes don't bother with the first terror mission if my squad health and equipment is dubious. That mission can be quite dangerous and set you back a long way, and the penalty for...

    I don't really rate North America's bonus, you're only saving $10 per Raven per month and $20 per Raven one-off. This doesn't seem like very much. Your Nigerian satellite alone is worth $30 per month...

    We can probably eliminate developers that are "wholly owned subsidiaries" of other companies and that should deal with a lot of the big video game companies and their constituent development arms.

    A sensible start for a definition of an indie developer would be a developer who isn't owned or controlled by a company that owns or controls other develepors, or something like that.

    If I could make one change to XCOM Impossible I'd make Sectoids die to a single grenade. I think that would make the start more playable.
