    I don't play much competitive MP either, but I always enjoyed those diaries. Reading them was generally a much more enjoyable way to experience those games than actually playing them IMO.

    Historically, these sorts of game diaries really have been the best thing about the site. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I still pine for the (imagined) day when we get the rest of that AI War diary,...

    I've still got a nice Mayan game of Civ 5 going in MP, though it's getting harder and harder to schedule time to play it.

    In SP, I've been dabbling with short bursts of the highly enjoyable (and...

    It's not a very good one, that's for sure, which is why I haven't done it. That doesn't mean it wouldn't be satisfying on some level, though. It's probably better to just cut straight to the chase...

    The gamergate thugs are the single best reason to subscribe, I'll certainly grant that. If it cost a bit less, I'd probably do it just to spite that crowd myself.

    And it's probably worth noting that Shogun 2 has been as cheap as half of that price many times over the last couple of years.

    Fair enough. Even if they were reliable, though, with noise like that who could pull out a signal?

    Of all the strange notions banging around gaming communities, one of the strangest is that Steam was ever curated.

    I don't see anyone in this thread suggesting any such thing. What I do see is lots of concerns about the impact of the new, paywalled content on the existing front page articles, and lots of wistful...

    Wizardry still pops in every now and then, he was in a thread a couple of months back. I don't think many discussions around here interest him, honestly, since his taste in games is very specific. I...

    I'm not sure I could play a Magicka-like control scheme with a controller, but aside from that this sounds quite promising. Anything that can be reasonably compared to LCatGL immediately has my...

    I agree with the "completely different" part, but would argue vehemently against "lesser." It would certainly be less of a movie, but it could be far more responsive and open.

    Honestly, I hate 100% spoken dialog. It's the reason RPG's barely have conversation branches anymore. Having to voice every option just means far fewer options, in practice. I sincerely wish I could...

    Agreed, top to bottom. So often in games, a good idea poorly executed in the original game is abandoned entirely in the next, rather than receiving the (often straightforward) retooling it needs to...

    I'm actually oddly comforted by how bad the suggestions are, in the same way that I'm always pleased when facebook recommends people I've never met as "people you might know."

    Hehe, yeah, we've got many hundreds of hours of AI War logged, but this isn't the ideal time for that. Civ 5 is indeed great, and what we're playing right now.

    It's funny, didn't RPS used to be vocally opposed to this model (in games) for pretty much these exact reasons?
