    GOG representatives have openly said it's acceptable for someone living in the same house as you to install your games as long as both of you don't simultaneously play the same game.

    Ahhhh, that continue button is glorious.

    Also, extensive tooltips and a properly-integrated in-game help system. Although big fat manuals were also fun and I miss them.

    Usually female when given the choice. Several reasons:

    1) In games where I don't get the choice, it's usually male, so choosing male when I have the choice would be boring.
    2) In RPGs it makes it...

    Nah, Picard is just an escape goat.

    (although scape does come from escape I suppose, so this is kinda cheating)

    I'd say I wouldn't put much faith in either of their opinions.

    I like a good Diablolike, but they all suffer slightly in that Diablo 2 is always better.

    Maybe you don't want to know the mechanics of how this works because it might make the game less fun, but if you do: many of the dialogue options are flagged by the various personalities, such as...

    I don't know if it was scripted or just good luck, but right after the long trap-filled corridor in that dungeon I found a scroll of Being Awesome At Mechanics.

    My top picks from last year are Divinity: Original Sin and Age of Wonders 3. Endless Legend is also highly rated, and seems good from what I've had to time to play.

    "No" to pretty much all of these except the last one, and that's because the IWD games typically had bad encounter design relative to BG2. Except for the early areas of IWD2 which are really...

    I'm very glad they went with RTwP, it's really good and works very well for this type of game.

    Maybe everyone else in the party has suddenly vanished and he's confused? I dunno.

    Durance's scout mode bark is annoying too, but he's out of my party now. As soon as I get Miss Paladin it's...

    The word cloud intrigues me. Have you done any more detailed word cloud representations? E.g. I guess it's generated by game quantity, how about weighting by game time instead? Being able to...

    I'm not sure because I have never tried this, but one thing that might work is to set the game to "only update whem I play" and then only play in Offline Mode.

    Steam gives you two options: update the game automatically as soon as possible, or update the game only when you choose to launch it. There is no option to decline an update entirely without...

    I imagine it's very useful for multiplayer games, but for single player strategy games and RPGs auto-updating and lack of old versions can really be a right pain.

    Note that rollbacks are supported...

    Again, this is only immersion-breaking if what you are immersed in is the direct representation on your screen. If instead you are immersed in the story-in-your-head then this doesn't break immersion...

    Good game, this. They've done a good job. I'm impressed. Not quite as smooth to play as BG2, but works pretty well. Beautiful, too.

    We can't really expect crowdfunding to allow no-name developers to fully fund a large project upfront. That's not reasonable. If you're not a big-name player, then you're going to have to take some...

    I once wrote a long analysis of DA:O's use of aggro abilities for fighters and how it's completely inappropriate for a single-player party-based game.
