    I have to say though, Serpent in the Staglands looks supremely unappealing and what gameplay footage I've seen makes me think it would be very tedious to actually play. But I suppose that's a matter...

    Keep in mind though that Tropico 5 will be out in May. Might be worth holding out for.

    My favorite city builder to date is Zeus. It has tons of character, both because of the various scenarios it offers and because of the way the people walking around the city will comment on the state...

    I have made a genuine attempt to play and like GalCiv 2 on three separate occasions, and I can tell you: I think it is boring, uninspired and soulless.

    A lot of people don't seem to think of it that way. Some see Kickstarter as an investment, others as little more than a pre-order system. Such views carry with them a sense of entitlement, I guess.

    So what do we think about Unity?

    A friend of mine really dislikes Unity. He claims it causes various performance problems and uses unreasonable amounts of resources. If a game uses Unity, that's enough for him not to touch it. For...

    I liked PoP 2008, including the way it ended, and I'm sad it didn't do well enough to warrant any followups. Yes, I'll admit it had its issues and certainly wasn't the masterpiece that was Sands of...

    When exactly did the Xboxes do things PCs of their times could only dream of? I must have missed that.

    All of this is true, and as I've mentioned earlier Distant Worlds suffers from typical Matrix interface snafu as well. But that only makes it all the more remarkable that Distant Worlds is fun,...

    Distant Worlds is pretty good, but you have to be willing to forgive a lot of inconvenience especially when it comes to the UI. The price point is also a problem as you need to buy every expansion if...

    I recently had a look at Hegemony Gold and it really is quite a good game. It has its issues, such as the interface and the way you have to constantly micromanage your defense against raiders, but...

    He does have a point though. I'm a fan of turn based combat, but routine encounters with cannon-fodder enemies can really get tedious if you can't deal with them in short order.

    Just wait until December 3rd. If it hasn't gone back on sale by then, buy it as it is.

    One concern I have is that they are using Unity. I haven't seen a Unity game that didn't have rough edges in terms of usability so far.

    I'm glad to see the Mandate get funded. I worry a little that $500K is a bit low given the sheer scope of the game they have in mind, but if they can pull off what their trailers so far suggest then...

    When it comes to being evil in games, I feel a lot of games actively encourage players to be evil just for the sake of it. I think that cheapens it. The best example I know of this is Fallout 3,...

    Ideally we'd be able to embed the kickstarter card widgets in our posts, so the information is always current. I don't think the forum lets us do that though.

    In my opinion even Final Fantasy hasn't been any good since FF9 or thereabouts. As you said, Japan has rather forgotten how to make good games. A pointed example of this was CAPCOM's layoff of...
