    As far as spouting personal preferences go, I'd much rather want an endearingly generic RPG la Might & Magic (which was always more Fantasy 101 than Wizardry with all its distinct races etc.) than,...

    I wouldn't ever want to sacrifice one for the other but, yeah, the tight and unapologetically sophisticated action gameplay of Vanquish definitely deserves to be on the PC every bit as much as a game...

    Haven't seen a proper impressions thread for Binary Domain so far, so here we go. I don't know how much interest there really is in the RPS community for...

    These endless FOV discussions profoundly puzzled me first, since that's simply not a topic I'm familiar with from my previous 20+ years of PC gaming. Apart from mere facts such as recent console-led...

    Dave Gilbert's Blackwell series is definitely recommended for fans of story-oriented point-and-clickers. The first game in particular used to be a bit rough but has since been cleaned up with much...

    Not really sure what "these games" means in this context. AC's combat (entire series) is pretty repetitive and formulaic, and Mount & Blade is a slightly awkward simulation with no obvious connection...

    The wonderfully weird "Vista exclusive" release of Halo 2, on Legendary difficulty. It's funny how a little bit of context goes a long way; the game was greeted by a loud "meh" by the PC community...

    I'm weirdly hooked on the Legendary difficulty mode in the old PC port of Halo 1. Last time I finished the game was during the same year it came out and at the time it was hard to forgive the...
