  1. Civitas: a city-building game that's not the SimCity reboot

    Full disclosure: this isn't my game, but i saw it mentioned in the comments for one of the SimCity articles, and i think it at least bears mention in this week's Kickstarter Katchup.

    Well, i was thinking in the context of things that should inspire imagination, adventure-y books and adventure-y games being two such things.

    But now that you mention SimCity and Civilization,...

    Raising children on computer games

    So basically, we were indexing some books for sale with my mother, and she told that adventure-y books are what children should be raised on. I retorted that video games are no worse for that, and...

    I don't think there's anything wrong with that mechanic per se. It, along with infinite sprint, is convinient when you have to cover a lot of ground. Then again, some people here would probably say...
  5. "Sticky sprint button": where has it first appeared?

    The thread's title refers to the mechanic where you can just press the sprint button and keep sprinting without holding it, and release the W button for a moment if you need to stop sprinting. I...

    Joke thread: "Operation Blank"

    So, me and my friend just came up with the following ideas: coming up with names for games in "Operation X" format, based on their content. For instance, here is a short list of what we came up with:...
  8. Every Manufacturer is Different: a Borderlands 2 video

    Okay, i'm not sure where to post this, and even if it's allowed at all, but i figured a little self-promotion after a fair amount of work can't be all that bad. The point is, me and my friend have...

    This is all rather nice. Armed and Dangerous' gravity reversal was more for fun than for fighting enemies in cover, so i guess the first instance of such anti-cover anti-gravity is the first Mass...

    Anti-gravity (and anti-cover) powers in games

    So, once upon a time i watched a trailer of Prey 2, and when it got to anti-gravity grenades, i thought: "Finally someone did something about enemies in cover." Then i saw Borderlands 2 having the...

    I think my problem is that i'm playing the Russian version of a game, and there is no option called "(Im)Mature Language". There is some stupid option about "crouch protection", which i faintly...

    Nope. I couldn't find anything. Which is, incidentally, why i'm asking how to switch it. I want to see that alternate dialogue for myself.
  14. How to enable alternate dialogue in Bulletstorm?

    The title pretty much says it all. Some of you might have heard that Bulletstorm has not-so-profane alternate dialogue, and that the developers regretted not making the choice up-front. My problem is...

    Strip Global Thermonuclear War

    Yes, the title does not decieve your eyes. The alt-text of this xkcd comic asks us in reference to Wargames: "HOW ABOUT A NICE GAME OF STRIP GLOBAL THERMONUCLEAR WAR?". Which once upon a time gave me...

    That's the bad part of it. The good part, as i've said, are the shared universes and indirect sequels.

    Well, i understand that the change wasn't really that drastic, but it's still an example of the game being changed. Most likely it's the harbinger of bigger things to come.
