    Just a quick mention on archiving: There is a UK National Video Games Archive where games can be played on a variety of different games systems. It's in Bradford (and that museum is honestly the...

    It doesn't really feel like any version of Civ I've played. As you say it looks great for a Facebook game and I'm actually finding it quite relaxing. It would be better with more active players...

    May I point you here? I know the budget given is different in that post but many of the suggestions (definitely the SteelSeries stuff, I don't know about Sennheiser) are actually within your price...

    That's interesting with regards to comments about whether we should be able to see the underlying randomness or calculations in the game. I know little of PnP RPGs but it sounds like the GM...

    I don't find Arrival hideous for that reason. I find Arrival hideous for other reasons. Firstly, only a few people seem to have been hired to voice act it. Shepard doesn't seem to say much and...

    For most of the important stuff, yes, some of the rest of it is in silly little amounts. I went for the Alternative Armour Pack 1 anyway (Hated seeing Garrus' armour with a hole in and wanted to see...

    Perhaps. Also this and this. It's very annoying, I know, and I did find myself grabbing one of the extra uniform packs just so I didn't have spare BioWare points. Then again, I did the same with a...

    Lair of the Shadow Broker and Arrival had enemies armed with concussion grenades. As far as I know, the concussion grenade was only introduced in Kasumi's thing. I had played Kasumi's thing before...

    Pandemic (yes, I will mention it every time)...

    Pandemic (yes, I will mention it every time) works okay as a solitaire game. It's not designed for it but it's a coop game against the game system so you can try it. Just pick two characters and...

    If you've been enjoying these economic games then I recommend Glen More. It's a pure euro-type city- (well village really) building game with some trading and resource production/management stuff. ...

    Ian, I'd be very interested to know at what point you drifted away. There is certainly a lull in the middle of both games.

    I got a chance to try Space Alert last Thursday. I wasn't really attracted to it by Quinns' review but still grabbed the chance when I had it. I really loved it, although I know others at the board...

    What makes you say that? I'm doing some research with EEG at the minute and it's entirely reliable, so long as you use it when asking the right questions. That's the same problem as exists with any...

    I think you're right, Wizardry. Probably tricky for most other genres as well. Donjonson makes a good point that games seem to be able to manage to draw us in pretty well without this sort of...

    I loved wandering around in LotRO. In fact I loved pretty much everything that didn't actually involve questing or fighting. Bagpipe concerts were a big draw. I also felt the same with Fallout 3. ...

    It would certainly be possible to use pulse rate or galvanic skin response as measures of generalised arousal. More specific and nuanced emotions would be harder to ascertain. As you say, many...

    Yep, you're absolutely right. Shepard is always a hero, no matter what choices you make. Instead the choices are about whether she's the sort of hero that you'd want around at a dinner party.

    And with my second abysmal performance I bomb out of the tournament. Well played to my opponents and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the games.

    I haven't read Lovecraft either. Tried to read a Sherlock Holmes story that was set in the Lovecraft universe once, but that was as close as I've managed to get. Didn't like Tolkien or Poe either...

    Female definitely for Renegade stuff. I would argue female in all other stuff as well, although many believe that the male Shepard makes a decent stab at Paragon action hero stuff.

    I'm a huge fan of my SteelSeries cups. You've got a somewhat better budget than I had when purchasing them, so you could probably even go for the 7H model here. All of the H series have retractable...
