    Yup. It hasn't existed for quite a while though (since the new forums came into being?). I recall it wasn't often used even when it was around though. Doesn't mean it shouldn't exist but it might...

    Anyone have any experience with Inform? Seems pretty straight forward, and I've always wanted to try my hand at a narrative driven game.

    Parade's End.

    Not really my normal viewing (I tend to refer to BBC period dramas as "a cost effective way to reuse all the costumes") but I'm really enjoying it. I imagine its not aimed...

    Speaking of which isn't number 3 out soon? (Actually wikipedia is telling me it's September 2013!)

    Also, the second book was a bit of a let down for me. I thought they'd do more with pirates, and...

    Isn't RPS best of three? Unless shotgun is deployed in the first turn, then all bets are off.

    That or a timely assassination and a letter to the remainder (may or may not need to be well written).

    My Discworld reading is nowhere near absolute but I'd probably rate Carpe Jugulum below Unseen Academicals. Making Money was a disappointment, but after really liking Going Postal (despite some...

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say its Towns, as implied in the bit you quoted. Suspect it might at least partially be related to the exposure it got from the Indie Royale Alpha bundle- I...

    Coincidently, I tried Mini Ninjas too last week. I thought the levels looked quite nice aesthetically, but that the game mechanics were just... shit. Stealth never really worked very well, and it...

    Unfortunately, I decided to buy this on PS3 partly to pad out my game collection on there, but also because it was on sale and it looked like it suits a controller better (it does!). Now I have to...

    Agree with the two above. Redemption etc. I did very much like Cole's story arc, both in terms of how we as the player percieve him and as how he as a character develops.

    He feels very... flawed;...

    I quite like it. Replaced TF2 as my dip-in-and-out FPS, at least partly due to the nature of very short rounds. Dabbled a bit in CSS a long time ago, but was never massively skilled or played loads...

    More likely he does something really extreme in the name of his family. I have a feeling he's going to screw over Clem and I completely at some stage, and we'll later get to decide the fate of the...

    Twin Sector- 99p in the Steam sale and I've had my eye on it for years. I can sometimes be a patient man.

    Very very rough around the edges, but there is a good game there. In some ways I wish...

    Flags aren't that useless. Standard bearers were/are a huge morale boost for troopers for, say, Roman Legions. As such, you want your flag visible/around and you don't want to lose it.

    Same reason as transportation in Britain I'd guess. The middle class/judges/juries feel a uncomfortable sentencing so many to death so they come up with a horrific way to get rid, even if in many...
