    I'd just say it's best to think of a talkdown as a writing prompt. Write as if you're someone who hates a game (even though, knowing it as well as you do, you probably love it). The talkdown itself...

    Let's try and resist the urge to defend a game's honour, yeah? People are going to be wrong, here. They are going to be stupid idiots saying stupid idiot things about that amazing game you love about...

    How many badges would one likely need to craft to make 1000 gems?

    It does seem like if you try to get in now, you're out of luck. Gems are only for sale in groups of 1000, and I have no idea where the hell people are getting that many gems to sell in the first...

    It's a half terabyte drive. I've never bothered with creating partitions before... I assume I'd do it after I back up, but before I use the Win7 recovery disc. Best to do it through the command line,...

    Gliding around Gotham in Origins is a pleasure. It feels much more like a real city - the built form, I mean, since as mentioned it's empty of everyone except mooks - than B:AC, and the architecture...

    Thanks. It's around 3 years old (the system drive - the computer's older). I haven't dropped it, but I travel with it a fair amount, and it's been getting gradually noisier (clicks and pops from the...
  9. Is this a virus/malware or impending drive failure?

    Yesterday my laptop crashed hard - not even the courtesy of a BSOD - and it's been acting strangely since. When restarting, there's a black screen for a good two minutes before the Windows logo shows...

    Shouldn't gamification be, you know, fun? The whole thing just sounds anxiety-inducing.

    All this changes for me is that I need to cash in on metagame-related card price spikes a week earlier than...

    What I really need is a way to sell the damned things automatically.

    "Under duress."

    Oh lord. Keep 'em coming. This is fantastic.



    Don't interact, obviously! Remain in your consumption unit.

    You're funny.

    What I'm rejecting is the idea that if our arguments aren't strong enough we can just redefine words until they are. (Well, sure, I admit we can do that - but then we don't get to...

    "Coercion is still coercion. Censorship is still censorship."

    Yes, things are the things they are. That's true.

    That's why those words don't apply here.

    Glad we sorted that out.

    The Banished mod scene's heating up a little since the modkit, and there's at least one conversion that's been well-received. But most mods so far seem to make the game easier, which I just don't...

    If I already own and love Shogun 2, am I going to find anything very different in Medieval 2, or is it mostly the same game with different textures?

    Am I wrong, or is the order of their bargain march locked in? Twice now I've missed a game I really want because it's gone on then off sale while I'm sleeping.

    The other day I just barely dinged an APC's bumper; three seconds later I was at war with Earth.

    This is more than just promoting a bundle, though isn't it? It's also drawing attention to a notable intersection of games and current events. Seems noteworthy beyond just "hey here are some games...
