    I've no interest in getting in the way of a good (and fully justified, from what I can tell) rant but no, it didn't come to mind for me because I basically have no experience with it. I will say that...

    That wouldn't have jumped to mind as an example of the problem being discussed, but it's an interesting case in point. I have little experience with these things, obviously, but I can see how that...

    Yup. Short of two nearly independent game modes, it's nigh impossible, and even then one mode often thrives at the expense of the other. I tend to think devs are better off just picking one side of...

    Sure, and as long as there's games for both of them I don't see a problem. The only issue, really, is games claiming to accommodate both that don't, really (a problem which cuts both ways).

    *pats Helio on the head*

    Seriously though, it's interesting that you see an epidemic of PvP pushback. As previously stated, the popularity of the Dark Souls model concerns me, but until/unless it...

    It's pretty clearly intended as an insult in most contexts, but like most PvPer comments it just further reinforces why we don't want to spend our free time playing a game with them.

    It really comes down to one word: depth.

    I'm sick to death of this argument but it does no one any favors to muddle genre lines like this. If someone is looking for a 4X game, Sins would be a...

    Sins is basically a very slow Command and Conquer game, lets not be silly here.

    It really can't, and your system is quite similar to mine. I'll give it a try.

    Thanks. I already have both, so a lack of availability isn't an issue, but I'm surprised to hear them mentioned because I didn't even think they did the "multiple timed solo stretches" style of...

    Yeah, Arcen managed to get a non-Steam Linux update method going awhile back, at which point they released everything that had been Steam-only to Humble and GOG. That's actually why I was content to...

    Thanks. Is there a better rally game/series out there that I'd be better off looking at? I've got Dirt 1 and 2 but, from what I've played at least, those aren't "proper" rally games so much as dirt...

    I'm sure WRC4 is (or will be) available solo for less, but this seems like as good a time as any to ask about it. Anyone played it? How is it?

    Lots of Origin games run without the client. Like I said, it's basically less clunky Steam with fewer social features. People just bitch about it because it's EA.

    It basically works like Steam. Hell, it basically is Steam, but slightly less clunky and with fewer "social features."

    Good question, actually. I enjoyed that game, though I thought Hot Pursuit 2 (2002) was the better NFS game. The whole open world racing thing sounds like a better idea than it actually ended up...

    Putting Deus Ex GOTY in the $15 amuses me more than it probably should.

    I have very few of these, and want very few of these, but I will take this opportunity to say that Lara Croft and the...

    This is pretty obviously something we're not going to agree on, so I'm inclined to stop it here before it turns into another one of those arguments. Suffice it to say that from my perspective,...

    To each their own, but I felt that while ME1's weapon system was lacking it certainly did still result in a meaningful sense of progression, at least. Losing that sense of progression entirely is one...

    I'll take a bad weapon system (ME1) over no weapon system to speak of (ME2) any day of the week. ME2 is a lovely action game, one of my favorites, but Bioware's "we don't know how to create good RPG...

    What DLC was that Helio?

    I've never bought a single DLC for any AC game. As far as I could tell, none of them had any substance. I have, on occasion, picked up an extra mission with the points...
