    Just took a look at the City of Steam site and some of the screenshots look quite nice. However the main thing that struck me (first impressions and all that) was the artwork for the various races on...

    Yes, the PS3 controller is a little pricier but you can use Sixaxis with MotionJoy's DS3 tool (though personally, I find it clunky and awkward). I find the PS3 controller much more suited to my hands...

    Does sound interesting, but it'd need to fit around my inconvenient work hours. Does this Duala Island mod require ACRE / ACE?

    The War Z gameplay style, assuming it will be action-MMORPG based on pure conjecture, would only alienate current players of DayZ. A system which encourages co-operation whilst staying within the...

    Indeed, the worst thing about multiplayer is the people. But it can also be the best thing, which is why I really hope DayZ does introduce some sort of system to aid co-operation. It'd be much better...

    I've had nothing but bad luck with DayZ's non-dead population since I started. A few people on the RPS Mumble channel have been helpful in an auditory way, but I've never met any of them physically...

    I've exhausted Netflix's supply of Archer and Bob's Burgers alas, so now I'm watching Monk, around two episodes a day. It's OCD-Columbo!
