    Simple question, purists need not apply: is the game fun with mouse and keyboard? I've seen HOTAS being bandied about a lot, but I have neither the money nor the inclination to buy one. Just the...

    Despite this, Guild Wars still had some significant progression. You could respec as desired, but gaining levels gave you more points to respec with, so there was still a feeling of character...

    Point filtering without also properly snapping the sprites will cause an extremely distracting crawling effect, which can be worse than linear filtering, especially if the sprites are large. You need...

    Not really. Every RPG, be they with a fixed archetype or not, let you progressively gain new abilities and skills. Those are often choices you need to make that'll shape where your character will go....

    So what you want is basically Minecraft. Persistent server, exploration, building, etc.

    I've yet to see a good game that's similar to Minecraft. I guess perhaps Space Engineers or Starmade?...

    Nitpick: Why would "Role-playing" imply you get to select the role you wish to play? I think fundamentally it means playing a role that is not yourself. Playing a game where you are a fixed character...

    So you're not using the GFWL store, then.

    That doesn't relate to Origin though.

    Perhaps, but someone of equal skill who did the same steps as you, but had better ammo and tanks due to having paid for them would inherently have an advantage.

    That paying can be offset by skill...

    No, Endless Space's handling of it is unique. In games like Civ, you start at peace and any attempt at combat requires a declaration of war. Endless Space starts you in a cold war state, allowing you...

    I'll bring something close in name that a whole lot of people forget: Driver: San Francisco. It's surprisingly enjoyable, even though it's framed more as a story-focused game. The driving is...

    The problem with information delay is visually displaying that. You're always an all-seeing eye with direct control over your units, and in a 4X especially being able to move around the map and zoom...

    To me that sounds more like once you've figured everything out, you've started to notice the cracks at the seams. This is especially true for simulations, where the systems are invariably...

    Distance. It's Nitronic Rush's full-blown release/sequelish thing, whereas Nitronic Rush was a student project.

    A pretty good game that fits the bill (and was criminally neglected) is Blur. I'm pretty sure it's on Steam as well.

    Endless Space has this odd problem of having the best interface ever made in 4X and yet feeling strangely clinical and bland. By all accounts I should like the game and I'm a sucker for...

    Steam says otherwise, and so did GOG when I checked: you need the base game to buy Dragonfall. Unless you mean in terms of storyline.

    Thus far, it's been Shadowrun Returns + Dragonfall, One Finger...

    Whether the deals are good or not is directly related to what games you already own, generally. That's why the first few years were so great: you didn't have most interesting games on sale already...

    But you never see the customizations yourself. Whenever you play MP, you always see yourself as playing the canon main character without any customization. It's the others playing with you that will...

    As far as I understand it, they are customizable, but only in terms of clothing. You can't fine-tweak the face or other physical features, but you can get a differently colored cape or something.

    For what it's worth, this largely reflects my personal experience. What I can however say is that, at least for physics and CS, there may be good reasons. The way I see it, you're much more likely to...

    Um, no. The game they sell you is the game they show at launch, which is exactly the game you receive when you buy it.
