    I figure I'd flail at it a bit, but yeah, definitely needs a demo.

    My finger keeps hovering over that Crypt of the Necrodancer sale. I'm still not confident I'll play it for more than a couple of hours, though. So I'm typing here that I'm not going to buy it - it...

    Fair. Replace "isn't very good" with "isn't to my taste," which is what I really meant.

    I was really disappointed that Waking Mars wasn't more about gardening and less about projectile dodging,...

    See, from my perspective it's a simple exercise in pattern-finding. I started with no inherent prejudice against games that got their original release on mobile, and have often played them without...

    Has there ever been a PC port of a mobile game that was worthwhile? This is not a rhetorical question, I'm honestly curious. I'm aware of a few PC games that got respectable mobile ports (KoDP for...

    Normally I'd mock the (disproportionate, IMO) Uplay hatred but in this case a number of items that have historically been available DRM-free come saddled with it (i.e. HOMM V). There's just no excuse...

    When I see an average that low, I assume there's a good reason for it. I don't really see anything there that makes me rethink that position.

    Indeed. I don't think the inventory is modeled as it is in Banished, but of course the wants and needs and the way it feeds into the political simulation is extremely substantial. That's not to say...

    I'm intrigued by Interplanetary. It's not a TBS in the traditional sense, as best I can tell, but rather sort of a "scorched Earth in space" about firing planetary artillery through solar systems. If...

    The Tropico games operate on the same principle, but also offer some meaningful construction variety and a host of other systems (politics, for one) totally absent from Banished. Mind you, Tropico...

    By "lightweight" I'm specifically speaking to the shortage of buildings, supply chains, and mechanics in general. I got a perfectly sound ~20 hours out of Banished, but I was content that I'd seen...

    It's not especially robust in the graphics department, but it obviously depends on your laptop. From GOG:

    That's Banished, which would be a great survival city builder (as alms nicely illustrates) if it wasn't so ridiculously light on content. I keep waiting for the expansion or sequel that turns it into...

    I honestly don't remember. It's been a very long time since I hit the cap so I couldn't tell you when much of anything unlocks anymore. They're green, circular, frameless, and appear for at least the...

    There are two different kinds of portals, the kind that put you in a "bonus stage" which function as you suggest, and the kind that skip the rest of that region outright. The former have an archway...

    Two things you may not have noticed:
    1) The first stage (and all the other stages, for that matter) changes daily.
    2) Once you've leveled up a bit, portals will spawn which allow you to skip the...

    Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the "let's date ourselves horribly" thread. To wit: For me it would be some Atari 2600 game, though I couldn't reliably tell you which. Probably Asteroids or Combat.

    I did, actually. In fact, it actually raised my opinion of Quinns.



    Exactly. Basically, it's a high bar to clear - I have to be well motivated to bother with video whereas a text article gets...

    I have no memory of having watched that, but I did just watch it now (in part to determine whether I'd watched it before) so I suppose mission accomplished?

    For the record, I honestly don't remember that. What was it about?

    And to be clear, it's not as though I have some principled stand against videos or something, I just generally don't watch them....

    Fair enough. Honestly, the main thing that's kept me from looking at them is the format - I just have no patience for video for this sort of content.



    I genuinely have no idea. :) Since I do...

    I like the idea that the way Philippa looks to me is the way Tim looks to non-wargamers. That puts things in perspective.
