    Yeah I'm not reading all the Culture books, I'm reading all the Iain M Banks books, so non culture ones included. I've read most of them before (except Feersum Endjin as I never could finish it) and...

    One of the things they got right with Dredd is that the story was tight. Dredd strips, even the random silly ones, are always tight 6-8 page things, so there's a certain minimalist aesthetic to...

    Oh god Earth Picker is amazing, when that first started we got totally obsessed with playing it at work. We spent a lot of time memorising flags, which countries drive on the left, working out how to...

    I'm eyeing this up but also not buying any new games until I've been paid. So would be interested to hear people's thoughts. Though it's a little indie game isn't it? Makes sense that there's no disc...

    I am fine to biting into stuff that looks like animals, lobsters, fish etc. Or even a whole pigeon or something. I think it's more about texture for me, I wouldn't bit a pig's face off as I imagine...

    Arf too Americanised (it's an s not a z). It must be a very rural bit of Scotland as when I was a kid it was pretty normal to have immigrants about, even if they stereotypically were running the...

    Nah it's not terribly important, it's a small issue that would be a lot of hassle for almost no benefit. It makes sense logically but would be a pain in the arse to get implemented and through...

    I always found that fine, it was actually an improvement in many ways. I had a much better sense of the characters arms and legs sticking out or not.

    Vampire Bloodlines is also excellent but not...

    I think Human Revolution did a very good job really. The boss fights and the ending were let downs but otherwise a top notch game in the vein of Deus Ex. I mean it destroys 2.

    Well either of those are the kind of thing I was thinking of. It's going to start happening more and more with even more fields of labour. Productivity figures in the UK are dropping badly as even...

    I probably should have said Marxist as in Marx's intellectual theories, rather than any specific political movement based upon them. It's still relevant to the Culture though as it is about the means...

    I suspect Gwarthdring is saying the same thing. You need language to describe people being racist against non-white people, for solidarity reasons alone. It ought not to exist, as racism ought not to...

    I am still convinced the people at Creative Assembly must have played this before they made Shogun they basic systems are so similar. They must be beside themselves doing Total Warhammer.
