I think badassdigest is often rather good, and certainly sometimes a bit Rock Paper Shotgunish.
But they're not necessarily "covers most genres".
I'm pretty sure that the Persona games have some plot changes based on how successful you are at increasing your Social Links with the other characters.

This kind of tonal issue is an increasing problem for me in games (it started for me with Quake 4, which is very much a "blow things up in the face with rockets" style game, but the way you end up...
I dunno, it's equally confusing, if not more so, with Mass Effect 1 (for example) - a highly trained soldier who apparently can barely use any of their abilities when they start out (it's especially...
It's certainly confusing. (At least some games get around this by having you lose your memories/recover from a coma/otherwise get "reset to zero" at the start... but for the average protagonist, it...
Having only just gotten around to completing (Firaxis) XCOM, something that puzzles me is how the Ethereal plot is supposed to work. So, they want to create some Awesome beings that surpass them...
To be fair, a lot of games which lean on the 4th wall have played with this idea (Super Meat Boy's Hell zone is explicitly filled with the corpses of the hundreds of Meat Boys who died all your...
2 might be SUPERHOT (just from the very stark white background and the crystalline appearance of the gibs).

The relevant achievement is called "Level 4 Revive Materia". You could argue that it's explicitly hinting that it isn't possible by referencing the most famous instance of an unachievable plot fork....

(Strictly, it's a major plot point for Hate Plus, the sequel to Analogue, which was originally intended to be an expansion pack until it grew massively.) But, yes, having played Analogue and Hate...

The assumption is that the attacker knows your *Steam* login credentials, but not necessarily any of your other credentials.
Especially if you're a sane human and are using two-factor authentication...

Did you read the bit where he was agreeing with you for most of the post? It seems unreasonable to assume someone is picking on you when they're actually agreeing with your point!

Firstly: it's an argument by reduction to extremes, which is a common rhetorical technique designed to point out a flaw in an argument by using the same logic but with more extreme comparisons to...

I'm confused as to why you're confused, rockman.
The tone of your post, and your replies to gwathdring, has been one of someone assuming that everyone making precisely the point that gwathdring...

Well, of course in the eyes of the person making the statement.
Who's complaining about the console buyer? Mostly the people you are disagreeing with are saying that having *multiple systems*...

What *is* the legal status of emulators these days?

Sure, and I think my objection is more about the enforced competition in all directions - we should also get more PC games on Consoles. You shouldn't have to buy all of the N gaming platforms in...
My gaming shower-thought tends to be for the game I wanted XCOM to be (no, not just X-COM with better graphics), and which it never can be due to its fixation with being a good board-game. (A game...

Sure, but there's as many really great games that only get PC releases, especially in the Indies.
I mostly feel sad that exclusives on any platform exist - every platform seems to have some subset...

This, plus the fact that I already own a PC, whereas I'd have to buy a console. (I do sometimes eventually buy consoles to play their exclusives, but not until they drop to a reasonable price:...
Of course, we don't actually know if mass-energy (or stress-energy-momentum) is actually conserved in General Relativity (we can prove conservation of energy-like concepts, in special cases of...
In the interests of giving you something to debate, I believe Pazzo is probably thinking of this:

The problem, IIRC, was that Quake 2's coloured lighting only worked with sufficiently advanced video cards (or possibly with any video card, but not in software mode?). A lot of people back then...

Speaking about things with turn-based mechanics, the Kickstarter for Mighty Tactical Shooter (previously mentioned on RPS here:...
Not at all: looks like we're debating happily, just about the topic, rather than on the topic.
