    I'm with you. There's a big difference between a publisher who is definitely going to release the game trying to part me from my money before I actually know anything about the game, and supporting a...

    Two reasons, I think - convenience and memory footprint. You don't have to worry about whether your game will behave with tabbing out to control your music player, because you don't have to tab out....

    If there were remotely any balance between the two statements, to the point that one could be considered a response to the other, I might accept that, but I know I see "piracy is not theft" a lot...

    I don't think it's right. Forums are not just about giving opinions, they're also about asking questions, and the people who would have the most important questions to ask are those who haven't...

    Yeah, I am aware of that, but it seems to me that if the claim (well, calling it a 'claim' suggests that it might not be true, which it is) is not being used as an excuse, then it's, at best, a...

    So Steam has finally incorporated a much-requested music player into the client, for those of you who hate games' original soundtracks. It's now available to everyone who's using the Steam Beta...

    The award for most criminally misused soundtrack goes to: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3.

    It's a great game with a really surprisingly fantastic soundtrack - rather than going for the cliche annoying...

    I do agree, but I just wanted to take it one step further and say that makes piracy closer to fraud than theft. Either way doesn't exactly legitimise piracy. To me, "piracy is not theft" sounds a lot...

    So I picked up Remember Me in the Steam sale and finished it.

    On the minus side, it's definitely a game that wants to be a film. The memory remix mechanic is promising in offering innovative...

    Cemeteries are the new water levels

    So I picked up Brothers in the Steam sale, and I was wowing at how lovely it is. Then, after big brother protected little brother against some wolves, the game plopped me in a cemetery and I...

    The ratings criteria aren't even consistent within a publication, let alone across them. I remember reading PCF when they would quite openly give one game a low score for no reason other than that it...

    I do agree with this in a way. I do think there's a massive difference between the impact of intent on consequence (none) and the impact of intent on culpability (a lot), but hand-wringing about how...

    Don't forget to vote for Warframe in the totally meaningless MMOBomb poll before 1pm PST (9pm GMT) today.

    I wouldn't be disappointed if Warframe loses to Loadout in the next round, or Mechwarrior...

    The exchange rate has nothing to do with it, really. There are two problems there. One is that publishers are assuming the Euro has the same actual value as the USD (which it did when it was first...

    I always thought that GOG's proud lack of region-discrimination was sort of wrong-headed, because it made the price of games beholden to the fickle whims of the currency exchange market rather than...

    I'm now quite satisfied that being unable to accept invites is a bug in the game rather than a problem on my end. I know this because when I go into the clan window, there is a different icon next to...

    It's worth it for Arrested Development.

    Everything else is a bonus.

    I've used it on Xbox 360 and netbook, and I haven't had any real performance issues. (Although to use it on Xbox you need a...

    If you're actually suggesting that the sound mix in recent games is worse than the sound mix in old games, then I'd wager you don't remember what old games sounded like.
