    Depends on the discipline I guess, but for some (e.g. health-related fields) there's an actual objective standard of competence against which to assess a person. Video games fall into the broad 'art'...

    Alternatively it's just worth remembering that every review is an opinion, there are no objective standards besides bare basics like bugs. Some people enjoy their Call of Duty and the reviewers that...

    Isn't this sort of frowned upon now though? In the quest for more difficulty! it seems like people don't like the idea of reloading if you've suffered a disadvantageous position, like it's somehow...

    The original did actually have a bug where no difficulty level beyond "Beginner" actually worked after the first save game... but you're right that the asymmetric warfare side of the original XCOM...

    "Streamlined" isn't a bad word and it's not about difficulty - it's about removing pointless complexity that doesn't actually translate to deeper gameplay.

    I agree that difficulty shouldn't be a...

    You're doing better than me. I started with one ship with a single Kerbal stranded in high orbit around the Mun. I now have 4 Kerbals stranded in various orbits along with the debris of several...

    You know, Twitter was useful to me back when a cyclone knocked out power for 2 days and wrecked the local comms infrastructure. We could drive to a nearby hill to get cell phone coverage, download a...

    I don't know why "barely runs on high end hardware" is a badge of honour these days. "Exploiting hardware" does not equate to being a good game just because it's struggling to maintain a decent FPS....

    Layout being equal though, those switches will make a big difference to how comfortable it will be to actually use. I'm with Sakkura on this one, my idea of 'top of the range' is built like a tank...

    I throw myself at the mercy of the RPS Advisory Panel - would I like this game? I'm intrigued but I'm not sure whether or not it's my kind of cheese. I'm a fan of Dominions 4 and Civ, but haven't...

    A good mechanical keyboard is worth it if you do a lot of typing, at least in my opinion. I find them much more responsive and much more comfortable to type on. I've yet to encounter a bad mechanical...

    Caddybear's suggestion is probably the best - Scott Manley's videos will teach you a lot of the basics. I have two problems with them though - firstly they're a bit drawn-out in some places (but most...

    So, it had exactly as much money as needed, but that amount wasn't enough.

    Perhaps then it didn't have exactly as much money as was needed.

    The idea was that the community would become the gatekeepers - the power is ours, supposedly. But the community is absolutely crap at this job, and stuck in a wave of optimism that a 2 man studio can...

    Kelron is right, it's a squash court. The game is either too obscure or the image isn't iconic enough - it's the squash court from Titanic, as rendered in Titanic: Adventure out of Time. It plays a...
