    I actually enjoyed the ratman's labyrinth. Not the only reason, but it was one of the few times the script and voice acting stopped being quite so godawful. Other than the terrible storytelling...

    Well, me. Join me. Please? It's lonely in here. :(

    Seriously, though, I have been increasingly thinking that I've enjoyed pretty much every new AC more than the ones that...

    Also worth noting it's currently a weeklong deal for less than one of our not-so-glorious British pounds. So, so unbelievably worth it.

    Yes, yes, and LewieP is the saviour who shall lead us all into a bright and shining future where we tell developers exactly what we're going to pay for our games, maybe, if we feel they deserve it,...

    Pretty much this. It's okay to bring him up on it - you have to realise that language changes, and you have to be prepared to admit you haven't kept up with it. My father's not "racist", racist, but...

    Yeah, despite the silly game-y bits occasionally driving me nuts, and the unintentional comedy now and then, Batman: Arkham Origins is by far my favourite of the Arkham games so far. Just played...

    FWIW, I couldn't stand Dropchord. Couldn't get my head round it at all, and the soundtrack wasn't anything special. Osmos is not soothing - it is screamingly bastard hard enough to have you pitching...

    I know you specified remakes, but you want to be careful with Square Enix mobile games, all the same. ;) They are simultaneously one of the best, most inventive big publishers in the field and - when...

    Weirdly, while I'm only watching it pretty slowly, I am also quite liking Reconguista in G. Even though the only other Gundam thing I've ever seen was Endless Waltz, and that literally (yes, I do...

    Log Horizon is actually better than I thought. I was wrong! About an anime series! My whole worldview is trembling on its foundations.

    It is still dumb shonen storytelling in many respects -...

    Ugh. No. Just no. I can have explosions and entire buildings falling down inside thirty seconds if I load up Guerilla. Just Cause 2, not so much.

    Stuck it up on MediaFire. Ren'Py seems to produce a .zip when you build something, no installer required as far as I can tell?

    I'll just reiterate the warnings:

    Weren't the Musketeers significantly earlier? Maybe I'm wrong, I haven't Googled it or anything.

    FWIW, I also really liked Unity (still playing Dead Kings). It was certainly rushed out far too...
  18. So I made a game. Okay, okay, a VISUAL NOVEL.

    Hey.

    I write stories.

    Lately I've started to put them on Tumblr (that link in my sig.), or Smashwords, Elfwood, places like that.

    Jesus Christ on a pogo stick "visceral" in common usage has absolutely nothing to do with gore whatsoever

    God, Psycho-Pass is balls. Gave it two episodes (EDIT: Make that three) and... no, people are nuts. Drearily mediocre seinen SF by the numbers, stuffed with the usual tedious infodumps no-one even...

    The thing is, in D3 - in vanilla at least, sans RoS - you have absolutely no need to bother with any of it, and if you do you'll wonder what the fuss was about. In PoE if you pay even a tiny bit of...

    I say again, I liked Skies of Arcadia a whole lot, and FF XII is one of my favourite games of all time. But as far as I'm concerned you shouldn't be able to win by out-spending the bad guys (at least...
