    I'm terribly long-winded, I know.

    Endless Legend is hopefully just a matter of a learning curve. I'm just at turn 70 in a game, and haven't actually done anything so far except build all the...

    Ancient Space is distressingly mediocre. I'm going to keep going at it, but it feels like a lot of squandered potential, which is sad.

    I keep bouncing off Endless Legend. I strongly suspect that...

    I had an absolutely horrid experience with the Nvidia Optimus system with an ostensibly decent (mobile) chip, and yet have a sort of mid-range laptop just now with probably lower-end AMD stuff...

    Comments off on the Sunday/Monday Papers? How bizarre. I often enjoy the comments on the Sunday Papers - in fact, I tend to enjoy RPS' comments in general, and post in the comments sections quite...

    I'm finding Elite to be considerably easier with a gamepad than with a stick, for what that's worth. Sure, I lose yaw (there's an option to yaw on initial roll with the pad, but I don't like it...

    FreeSpace 2 was mentioned up above, but the standalone game Diaspora probably deserves a mention there as well. It's built using FreeSpace 2's source code, but none of its graphical or audio assets,...

    Know that thing that happens when a comment under an article is deleted and all the replies to that comment go into a strange limbo at the bottom of the comments as a whole? Some sort of fix to that...

    I ran off three NPC Cobras in a Sidewinder once. The AI isn't quite up to speed at operating when it has wingmen, unfortunately, since I should have been completely trounced in that fight, rather...

    I read many articles on RPS. If Nathan was compromising his journalistic integrity, which seems unlikely to begin with, then my goodness, he was doing a terrible job of it, because I had never even...

    Who on earth are half of these people and why should I care in the slightest what they do with their personal lives, or what others accuse them of doing? Well, the guy who wrote a 9,000 word ramble...

    End of this year, apparently. The core mechanics feel really really solid. There's still a lot to be done, but they have demonstrated that they're able to move it on leaps and bounds from one test...

    Just echoing the above sentiments really, but Red Dragon is a big step up from AirLand Battle where the core of the game is concerned. Ignore the naval stuff, because it's rubbish. Most people play...

    Not really like Baldur's Gate.

    Fantastic game, even so.

    My one and only major gripe: occasionally the directions for a quest are damnably obscure. For example, I searched Cyseal's south beach...
