    I'd argue that for Dishonoured, that's partly because the game wants killing to be easy, but also tries to slightly humanise the basic guards - they chat to each other, admittedly with a small pool...

    Strictly, living anywhere in the EU is OK for British citizens (since we're part of the EU and signed up to the mutual agreements).

    Are you talking about a new or second hand car?

    Which commenting raises the topic of if you pick characters because you identify with them, or because you don't. It doesn't seem as simple as everyone male picking female characters because they are...

    Sure, on reflection I'll grant that. (I was unconsciously conflating it with the scope change that occurred in development.)

    Honestly, I think it's almost more common for games to be unfinished than finished thanks to schedule slip and publisher deadlines.

    All three Deus Ex games have elements of unfinishedness about...

    The only way I've really managed to do it is via the long-term approach of arranging suitable marriages (and then arranging suitable deaths if there are intermediate inheritors).

    Zabi - you'd have loved the old (Amiga/PC/ST?) Space Hulk game, then. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Hulk_(1993_video_game) ) Possibly the tensest game I've ever played - there's a...

    Completed Transistor, and just a little way into the Recursion/New Game + mode . I'm a little depressed that such a small fraction of the people who played the game got the achievements related to...

    Ah, okay. So, I'd disagree to the extent that I think Doom and Quake have thematic similarities that even Quake 2 doesn't have - they really don't care about having a plot or a complex level...

    Huh, I always thought that Unreal had a global "Nali-killer" value across maps, but on checking, the value is map-specific, I think. It's still a sort-of morality filter, though, as you do miss out...

    The thing about Unreal is really that, at the time, it was incredibly beautiful compared to its competitors. That bit where you emerge from the crashed ship for the first time and see the landscape...

    I remember the UT v Q3 rivalry being very big (although given I owned played and enjoyed both, I also found it rather difficult, as it was a little tricky to be a member of both circles at once), but...

    You *could* try spraying the bed with Feliway or even catnip solution, which should help Lodin associate the bed with calm and relaxation, and might help alter behaviour?

    The one problem with picking up SpaceChem when you last played it up to the very last few puzzles, is that you're almost immediately throwing yourself back into horribly complex solutions whilst also...

    I think there was a little Unreal v Quake 2, yeah, but I definitely recall Half-life being strongly in the mix. (And while I remember SiN existing, vaguely, I don't actually remember anyone I know...

    I definitely associate Unreal with being a HL rival, but that's because my first encounter with both of them was via a friend (very shortly after HL came out). I distinctly remember us valuing Unreal...

    I dunno, I actually stopped playing the main game sometime during the penultimate (Daud) mission, because I got to places where I simply couldn't stealth my way through. So, I definitely felt very...
