    And yet, that's not what their license agreement says. And essentially, it's not up to them. If Steam said "it's perfectly acceptable to pirate a game if you've already bought it from us" that...

    You'd also 'get away with' piracy though.


    Yeah but then he'd have the overhead of having to periodically go online to get patches to update the games. Which is why he dismissed the age-old...

    For serious RPGs have always tended to go male mage, though switched it up a bit recently and enjoyed it (DA2 and Inquisition were both female characters, as the 'me' avatar already exists in that...

    You can pop up a menu of common commands, but yeah it still follows basic text adventure concepts.

    Have you tried Device 6? It does some similar stuff to what you're describing, but a bit more...

    I'd check out Andrew Plotkin's iPad stuff. I believe The Dreamhold is free and does a lot of that.

    Steam will update it automatically when I'm not there, probably grab the new DLC for me too. It needs less disc space (which matters for a game this big) as I don't have to have space for the...

    Virus checkers exist, and legality at least in terms of pirating a game you've already bought a license to on Steam is very much a grey area.

    Yeah I'm totally fine with regional price discrimination if the product was all produced in a single region, and so didn't take advantage of regional price discrimination in its creation. So for a...

    Then turn it off? Last I checked that was still an option on Steam.

    Both allow me to play the game though right? So if I'm more concerned with that than historical record, it's no big deal?

    I'm not sure how that follows. If it's bad for any company to include anything in a game that upsets anyone we are going to get some very boring games.

    There are plenty of good, solid arguments as...

    Well yeah, you need to prove you're good before people will give you money to do it. I'm curious what system you actually want here? Are we talking full-on government paid living wage for anyone that...
  13. While in principle I agree, it's not that...

    While in principle I agree, it's not that straightforward. For a start "turns out to be a man" on its own is somewhat transphobic - because if you're being entirely accepting, then the woman is a...
  14. Sure, but then the joke is on the...

    Sure, but then the joke is on the homophobe/transphobe though isn't it? Which I think matters, because if you go with "you can't make jokes about X" rather than "you can't make jokes at the expense...

    That's part of why it's a far more tricky issue to deal with. If someone sees themselves as a man, I'm happy to treat them as a man. If they see themselves as a woman, I'm happy to treat them as a...

    Honestly I read it as "guy gets blind drunk, goes out and sleeps with another guy, sobers up and realises what he's done" and don't see any trans element to it at all. Maybe a touch of homophobia...

    The tyranny option is still there. If you want to play RPGs made the traditional way where developers are at the mercy of publishers rather than feeling beholden to crowd-funding backers there's...

    I don't like it either, but it raised somewhere between 92k and 180k (depending on where those who backed at that level would otherwise have backed).

    The project beat the last stretch goal by...

    I wouldn't have thought so, but if you look at the amount of people that decided they hated ME3 because of the ending, it's clearly possible to hate a game you think is 95% great so...

    I can't wait to see the stats for this - I think it's a brave and somewhat interesting choice to limit people to one service. People make a huge amount of noise when these games are being Kickstarted...

    Seems to be out of stock at distributor level at the moment, but that's no big deal, it's being reprinted, a month or two and it'll be back in stock everywhere.

    For you and others, sure. For me and others it is fine. It's a game with issues but it's not universally unplayable.

    Started Unity just recently and it runs great. And feels genuinely different to the past few games - far more emphasis on stealth, far less on combat. It'll be weird going back to the old system in...

    Because they're new to the market so just being 'as good' as the competition isn't good enough. They need to be better if they want people to use it, and they need unique selling points.
