    It's always interesting to me that people expect cRPGs (be they MMO or not) to be one thing, when in the sphere of other, non-computer roleplaying games you have such diversity. You have rules-heavy...

    A lot of it is personal preference, and I am quite aware that no-one gives a shit what I like, but I do prefer games that make me deal with it when I fuck up my stealth, rather than games that make...

    Bizarrely, I think the one publisher that does understand piracy is (can I use the word 'bizarrely' again for emphasis?) EA. I was trying to figure out what they get out of offering free games as an...

    If Dundee is as influential in the games industry as it likes to claim, why has no developer of city builder games ever looked at it and gone, "Whoops, I guess it is possible to build roads up steep...

    Media keys might work with borderless windows, but they don't work when actual fullscreen applications have focus. Windows prevents it. (That's not strictly speaking true, since Windows does allow...

    I'm with you. There's a big difference between a publisher who is definitely going to release the game trying to part me from my money before I actually know anything about the game, and supporting a...

    Two reasons, I think - convenience and memory footprint. You don't have to worry about whether your game will behave with tabbing out to control your music player, because you don't have to tab out....

    If there were remotely any balance between the two statements, to the point that one could be considered a response to the other, I might accept that, but I know I see "piracy is not theft" a lot...

    I don't think it's right. Forums are not just about giving opinions, they're also about asking questions, and the people who would have the most important questions to ask are those who haven't...

    Yeah, I am aware of that, but it seems to me that if the claim (well, calling it a 'claim' suggests that it might not be true, which it is) is not being used as an excuse, then it's, at best, a...

    Steam Music goes Open Beta

    So Steam has finally incorporated a much-requested music player into the client, for those of you who hate games' original soundtracks. It's now available to everyone who's using the Steam Beta...

    The award for most criminally misused soundtrack goes to: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3.

    It's a great game with a really surprisingly fantastic soundtrack - rather than going for the cliche annoying...

    I do agree, but I just wanted to take it one step further and say that makes piracy closer to fraud than theft. Either way doesn't exactly legitimise piracy. To me, "piracy is not theft" sounds a lot...

    So I picked up Remember Me in the Steam sale and finished it.

    On the minus side, it's definitely a game that wants to be a film. The memory remix mechanic is promising in offering innovative...

    Cemeteries are the new water levels

    So I picked up Brothers in the Steam sale, and I was wowing at how lovely it is. Then, after big brother protected little brother against some wolves, the game plopped me in a cemetery and I...

    The ratings criteria aren't even consistent within a publication, let alone across them. I remember reading PCF when they would quite openly give one game a low score for no reason other than that it...

    I do agree with this in a way. I do think there's a massive difference between the impact of intent on consequence (none) and the impact of intent on culpability (a lot), but hand-wringing about how...

    Don't forget to vote for Warframe in the totally meaningless MMOBomb poll before 1pm PST (9pm GMT) today.

    I wouldn't be disappointed if Warframe loses to Loadout in the next round, or Mechwarrior...

    The exchange rate has nothing to do with it, really. There are two problems there. One is that publishers are assuming the Euro has the same actual value as the USD (which it did when it was first...

    I've used it on Xbox 360 and netbook, and I haven't had any real performance issues. (Although to use it on Xbox you need a...
