    If you're going to play an MMO, play one that you can buy upfront, get basically everything, and not pay subscription. One of the things I love most about GW2 is being able to go back to it for an...

    Speaking as someone who doesn't have a character higher than... early 30s, I think, it's still worth it. 10 monies are worth it just to explore that world some. It's a looker, that game.

    I like...

    I played a bit of Ziggurat last night. I like it. It's a welcome pleasure to play a more traditional FPS, with lots of projectiles to dodge and backpedalling away from melee. Like Serious Sam, but...

    I know. It's what I meant about incorporating healing into the build. You're not just stocking up on potions so you can spam a couple of dozen to get you though a hard fight (after which presumably...

    The key is to make healing part of the build. These games are all about character builds: skills selection, item builds. You have to incorporate health recovery into the core of the game. I have a...

    I thought Diablo 3 actually got potions about right. They have a pretty hefty cooldown, so they function as emergency top-offs, but you can't get away without including some other means of restoring...

    I confess the thought had entered my head. Full refund on the good exploding Doctor would give a certain amount of security to my choice. But Math Warrior is hella fun when you start to get it...

    They're not precisely binary though. There are blocks and parries, both performed the same way. A block is simply an early parry, and the timing on those is very generous- any time during the attack...

    I really like DoW 2's multiplayer. It has some of the best unit design in an RTS, both in terms of representation of the fluff and in function and interaction. Worth it for voice acting alone, and...

    I thought it was a really fun twist. A call back to the original work. If you hadn't seen it coming then it changed the way you thought the world and your character's position in it. If you did it's...

    I seem to have gotten my Arena mojo back again. I went 5, 6 then a 10 with a Mage and a 9 with a Rogue. And then a 4, but my average is still good. Not sure that I changed all that much about my...

    I always went for quad-fire when blasting TIEs. It's a shotgun, really. You can't dodge them all. I really liked flying the basic TIE. It felt great, with tight turns and really accurate guns. The...

    Spellbenders? Spellbenders... You want to eat buffs, which seems to be the only reason you wouldn't just run Counterspell. What GvG card would make a Spellbender worthwhile? The only card I can even...

    I fear I was indeed referencing the joke about Malorne.

    I hate Druids of the Fang. It should be a stupid card to pick in Arena, and yet the number of Druids I've seen casually whipping out 7/7s...

    The only thing I could find about order requirements is that you need to have completed the first four wings to access the final one. I don't know for sure, though.
