    Perhaps, but someone of equal skill who did the same steps as you, but had better ammo and tanks due to having paid for them would inherently have an advantage.

    That paying can be offset by skill...

    OpenTTD.

    What, did you have another definition of F2P in mind? ;)

    No, Endless Space's handling of it is unique. In games like Civ, you start at peace and any attempt at combat requires a declaration of war. Endless Space starts you in a cold war state, allowing you...

    I'll bring something close in name that a whole lot of people forget: Driver: San Francisco. It's surprisingly enjoyable, even though it's framed more as a story-focused game. The driving is...

    The problem with information delay is visually displaying that. You're always an all-seeing eye with direct control over your units, and in a 4X especially being able to move around the map and zoom...

    To me that sounds more like once you've figured everything out, you've started to notice the cracks at the seams. This is especially true for simulations, where the systems are invariably...

    Distance. It's Nitronic Rush's full-blown release/sequelish thing, whereas Nitronic Rush was a student project.

    A pretty good game that fits the bill (and was criminally neglected) is Blur. I'm pretty sure it's on Steam as well.

    Endless Space has this odd problem of having the best interface ever made in 4X and yet feeling strangely clinical and bland. By all accounts I should like the game and I'm a sucker for...

    Steam says otherwise, and so did GOG when I checked: you need the base game to buy Dragonfall. Unless you mean in terms of storyline.

    Thus far, it's been Shadowrun Returns + Dragonfall, One Finger...

    Whether the deals are good or not is directly related to what games you already own, generally. That's why the first few years were so great: you didn't have most interesting games on sale already...

    But you never see the customizations yourself. Whenever you play MP, you always see yourself as playing the canon main character without any customization. It's the others playing with you that will...

    As far as I understand it, they are customizable, but only in terms of clothing. You can't fine-tweak the face or other physical features, but you can get a differently colored cape or something.

    For what it's worth, this largely reflects my personal experience. What I can however say is that, at least for physics and CS, there may be good reasons. The way I see it, you're much more likely to...

    Um, no. The game they sell you is the game they show at launch, which is exactly the game you receive when you buy it.

    This'd be like complaining that movie companies are shady for showing a very...

    I might be cynical, but from all of what you've said, this single line is probably the only thing that'll work. When even the grandmas of this world will have grown up playing videogames, they won't...

    How do you address the parents though? They don't play video games, they don't go to universities, they barely listen to their children half the bloody time, let alone the government.

    From what I remember the FCR only puts you in "pirouette mode" when you're threatened by either dangerous enemies or a lot of enemies. In other circumstances, you just keep on rolling. The two...

    Worth noting that viewpoints have always struggled regardless of platform. I remember AC2 running just fine on a PS3, but the viewpoints looking horribly choppy and tearing. Same deal with Far Cry...

    Yeah, that part always amuses me. It's why I said (here or on another forum, I forget) that Nintendo seems to be living in another universe. In their conference, they seemed to have just recently...
