    That's not the only way. Typically, companions kneel and the baddie will then ignore them and focus on someone else (typically you). If the baddie blasts an area-of-effect spell at you and your...

    Of course they do. I hate characters who change at the drop of a hat just because, you know, the writer can't hack it. This is why I despise Jane Austen.

    I think the gift and curse of gaming at...

    This is also strange to me. My companions have usually proven resilient, but then again I'm playing a sneaky, destructo-healy mage (will blacksmith for food) and sometimes like to simply stand behind...

    It seems like it at first, but the levels become pretty fiendish about halfway through, and then it really turns into a brain-scorcher of a game. It's probably my favorite puzzle game of all-time.

    It's not Steam, but if anyone's got Impulse, the month-and-a-half old Rage is on sale for $30 today. That may also indicate an upcoming Steam sale. The big publisher deals often mirror each other...

    Wow, 30 hours in, I never fast-travel (though I will take carts when it only costs 20 gold) and I haven't seen any of these. I play superduperslow, though. I'm only level 13, and I'm putting off the...

    Most played is Dragon Age: Origins. Revisited it for a second playthrough, since I now have the DLC and Awakenings and wanted to see if I could become the regent instead of, you know, a dead mage....

    This. A thousand times, this.

    I've got a lot of patience for redundant gameplay, but even I just don't feel the UBERTRADE route of X3. I prefer to hop in, do some space tourism, enjoy the sights...

    What a jackass. I can't believe Richard Garriott was so hateful of the environment. Oh, and he shipped with paper boxes, too?!? I'm getting my Skyrim digitally. Why did Richard Garriott hate the...

    I think those of us looking forward to Skyrim are taking Bethesda's greater history into account.

    I agree. Never had a game make me laugh so hard, and I loved the tonal shifts. The puzzles bent my mind in the right way, though I could've done with a few more harder ones toward the end (isn't that...

    Danny252, that was the Shalebridge Cradle level. Good call. Rarely has a single level stood so head-and-shoulders above its surrounding game, and Thief 3 was a fairly solid game to start (if somewhat...
