    For shame, all of you. F is from Dragon Quest/Dragon Warrior: the Dragonlord in his final form. Funny, the DW overworld music drifted in to my head (for the first time in a couple of decades) as I...

    The trading in Anno is a bit basic, but the system for setting and automating trade routes and dealing with surpluses/shortages is a place the series really shines. And the addition of hostile...

    I love both the two most recent Anno games (and don't enjoy The Settlers, in case Caddybear's comparison turned you off).

    In a game where "clothes with pockets" is halfway up the tech tree (and only if you have the expansion), I'm surprised you don't have to research combat boots to stop soldiers from cutting themselves...

    If a soldier with Mimetic Skin uncloaks or fails to cloak, it's because an enemy had a sightline to them when they started moving, or their destination wasn't a full cover tile, or they fired their...

    How so?

    I've worked customer and public service jobs, and "the customer is always right" is horrible advice. There are certain customers who really are just wrong and will never admit it. ...

    I tackled a man and bludgeoned him for his painkillers before freezing to death trying to find a wheel for my shopping cart. I regret nothing. Good, oppressively bleak bit of fun.

    I'm more curious about what lets chickens happily cavort outside for months in subzero weather. Is that what the ale's for?
