    If you've disappeared down that hole before and are wary of doing it again, and have been out of the clickfest loop that long, you might be better off with Torchlight, depending how much having the...

    Sacred 2. Very Diablo-y, even down to mostly requiring you grind through a sort of NG+ sequence rather than having selectable difficulty. Loot and, to a limited extent, encounters are randomized and...

    Who is the music industry's Cliff 'Cliffy "don't call me CliffyB" B' Bleszinski?

    More importantly, is the current GG sale on SR2:Reboot cheap enough I should buy it even though I'm not sure I can...

    Probably not, but you could rectify that. I played maybe half the Gold Box games (interest dwindled when they started with those awful giant maps made of repeating chunks; liked Dark Sun, though),...

    Audiosurf is pants for this. Segregates by track, not nearly deterministic enough if you've got your serious face on, and (in my probably entirely incompetent experience) next to impossible really...

    87% sure Super Sonic Kart (whose real name is an abomination presumably for trademark reasons) can do this. Sorry, can't check as I don't have it installed any more. Good game, though, and you're not...

    Dragon Age: Origins is ~20 gig (goatse edition - vanilla's not so insane, but not enough smaller to be helpful).

    Bloodlines is good times. Mask of the Betrayer is grand, but I've no idea if that's...

    I think timing might matter. Most of the earlier bundlage was games that were probably in the long twilight of their sales potential, so more or less giving them away made sense. Stuff turning up...

    Is that (Terminus) the one about a Mars rebellion, or something? I remember thinking that was the least bad of a few I tried out but never followed up that suffered mostly from not being...

    You'll never have to use the provided config - it's just a shortcut to a dosbox.conf you can edit if you want to, and the dos setup executable will be there if there was one. I think it's usually at...

    I didn't know they started with 20 employees - churlish, but I want to ask what that many people were doing all day to produce what they did. I mean, I assumed the weird platform choice was a "can't...

    I think that's a necessary adjustment. Hard to be reasonable about it, since I do dislike the recent-ish tendency to rely on some form of crowd funding (in which I'd include episodic release but not...

    @Tei: you can't really play Trackmania offline. Even nominally single-player it's constantly talking to its server. Granted, it will at least run disconnected, though, which this might not since...

    @Squareking: yes, rage is meaningless until you have the things it activates. It's warrior-based magic, more or less. I don't think it's much of a spoiler to suggest you pursue what is plainly the...

    I seem to have a spare Cogs, which can only be because of HIB3 or FRAUD! Did you get it from the potato promotion or on its own? Valve has to enable extra copy gifting individually, since usually...

    So-called SRPGs have been consistently successful, if niche, on consoles forever - probably more so than on PC, where Rebelstar descendants are not contemporary. People born in the nineties would...

    Thief has a few bits of this, especially in The Sword (Constantine's Manor). That has some splendid tricks, probably the most memorable being the door that opens into nothing and the foreshortened...

    Are they, bollocks. That holds up a bit better for Bard's Tales and Wizardries, but I'd contend it's tenuous, even there. CRPGs pretty rapidly turned into their own thing(s), that many people like...

    The DHM version was pants (by many accounts - haven't played it), though it was multi-region, which is an achievement for this sort of shoestring budget affair. As far as I'm aware, it was licensed,...
