    Oh I agree that DEFCON hardly presents nuclear warfare in a positive light. But that's not an exclusively anti-nuclear position. People who support nuclear weapons generally do so because they think...

    I disagree with the video. If I say "keep your politics out of my games" the emphasis is not on "politics" but on "your". I do belive that games can provide an original and thought-provoking way of...

    In 1444 the Portuguese had already taken the lead in naval technology (combining efficient mediterranean sail-plans with sturdy northern european construction). That's the main reason europeans built...

    Then why did you buy a paradox grand strategy? The entire point of these games is to navigate yourself to greatness while the world evolves in a historically plausible manner. That obviously requires...

    I've not played EU4 yet, but to say that the Chinese should be massively more advanced in 1444 is somewhat stretching the truth. Europeans were already pulling ahead in several areas, particularly in...

    I've been playing a bit of Kerbal Space Program recently (it had an update this week) and I think it offers some relevant insights:

    At its core KSP is a physics simulator, and it's very hard to...

    Ok well take the theives guild for a comparrison:

    In Morrowind you join the guild in Balmora, where there are 6 quests, 4 of which take place in Balmora. The other two are in the two villages...

    Thinking about Morrowind Vs Skyrim again, the fast travel real bugs me. Not because it's there, but because it's as if they hadn't considered the possibility of a player not wanting to use it (to me...

    1) Have a proper blockbuster budget
    2) Have a genuine A-list star
    3) Don't make...

    Irrational have only released 2 games since 2007, Bioshock and Infinite. Rockstar North have only released GTA IV and its expansions in that period (it's unfair to count the other 10 studios Take-Two...
