    It really is. At least "remotely". Or perhaps you think that gag in Ace Ventura was one hundred percent good, clean, harmless fun? The original intent of jokes like this were to say "If you went to...

    For what little it's worth, I'm guessing they thought they were going for a Canterbury Tales vibe, rather than open hostility.

    Fair enough. Eh, I may be dreading the day every game goes F2P/rock-bottom price, but I have to admit there's a ton of things I would buy right now if they were $1 or whatever.

    Heh, no worries, Squiz. I apologise for derailing the original thread.

    Uh... not sure what else to add at this moment in time, really. Like I said, I don't think the original writer's intent was...
  5. Implications of patreon programs/crowdfunding on the design process of videah gems

    Hmm. I can't stand the "But but but that's not historically accurate!" crowd, and I'm certainly open to the idea some people should be willing to push the boundaries - Christ, I'm not buying Kingdom...

    No PC for me at the moment as I've not long got an iPad Air 2, so having jumped, like, three or four hardware generations in one go (and onto a much bigger screen) the novelty is still strong....

    Totally. "If you can afford to make it that cheap there, you should make it that cheap everywhere, because I'm the consumer, and without me you wouldn't even exist, so what I say goes and you should...

    <rant>

    Lewie's desperate flag-waving is getting a bit ridiculous, IMO. And yes, I'll pay full price for The Wild Hunt, once I decide I can afford it. It's worth that, to me. I wouldn't mind so...

    I'll say. /rimshot #REALISM UBER ALLES

    I mean, seriously, I could provide a lengthy, well-reasoned reply, but there's just... something about your post that suggests you're not really interested.

    For an easy way to see some more of just how jaw-dropping Flight Simulator X can look with terrain mods, DeadEndThrills has a gallery of screenshots here.

    Yeah, pretty much. It's still prey to a whole lot of the same flaws as their other games, but the writing is far and away the best they've ever done and the set pieces just work much more...

    Brief - depends what you call "brief". I seem to remember posters on the TouchArcade forums saying it was around the 7-10 hour mark, possibly longer. Linear, again, I'm not entirely certain - you can...

    Rockstar are not the masterful wordsmiths they imagine themselves to be - see: how completely they screwed up GTA V - but they are/they do employ good writers, for all much of it hinges on obvious...

    Interesting/cheap enough I thought what the hell and went for it - though straight away I note the final boss in Vanguard Princess is still close to broken, even with the DLC. Appear, she spams...

    For a moment? It still astonishes me, even six, seven years on. ;) Seriously, though, I don't even think it's a subversion, really - Rockstar may not view it quite as fondly as you or I but I'd be...

    Sometimes it feels weird that we still refer to it as television. I've never owned an actual TV, nor will I ever, probably. My parents haven't had one since shortly after I was born. I watch...

    Oh, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. It's not as good as 6, but yeah, it's much, much better than Revelations 1. Moira's great - I mean, one reason I love 6 so...

    I do not own DaS2, but according to the wiki, yes they will. They've already been slightly upgraded to make ready for Scholar.

    I can see it's pretty much as stripped-down as possible to aid you in putting it together, but yeah, FWIW I agree with the other posters who've commented. It's really good minimalism in my book,...

    I actually own the game, but I didn't know who was behind it - it was a sale purchase years ago, I've never played it. I still have the movie on DVD, too.
