    I think the most important thing from their statement was the reveal that they spent significantly more money than they had, figuring that the game would make it big if it had more marketing.

    I think whether or not the inhabitants of the world are evil depends on the game world being truly medieval or just modern society with medieval flavour. See, I'd argue that in a medieval society,...

    I'm not terribly excited about inserting a few african-redanians into the game, even if they might have been able to pull it off. But the more I think about it, the more pissed I get about a...

    Nice write-up, Notenome.

    I think that, although the game has a number of problems when it comes to, say, its portrayal of prostitution, the intent of the writers can be seen in two minor...

    I can't argue that modders don't have a right to charge money for their work. However, I can't imagine I would ever buy a mod. The way I use Skyrim involves dozens or even hundreds of mods,...

    Skyrim has road signs all right. Not marking roads on the map was a terrible choice, though. (There's mods to fix that, of course, but that can be said about every aspect of Skyrim.)

    However, I'm...

    Is Civ: Beyond Earth worth 25 yet?

    The impression I got at launch was of a game with serious problems that left a lot of people pretty disappointed. But it's been out a while, and between Firaxis presumably tinkering with AI and...
