Started Bastion last night. Everything about it immediately turned me off. I thought I'd like the narrator, and I think I expected more of a stylized spaghetti western feel. Also though the controls...

Man this Humble Bundle is pretty crap. Except Grimrock, of course, which is amazing and I am totally happy about buying, especially since the Mac and Linux versions aren't available on GOG yet. And I...

Finished Grimrock last night. It was such a great revelation when I realized I could hurt the wizards once I broke through their magic shields. Really glad I resisted the urge to look online for tips...

Just got to Level 12 of Grimrock. Oh God level 10 with the invincible wizards--terrifying! And for some reason Level 11 had nothing on it?
The game is great! If you haven't played it, get it!

Beat the Gauntlet in Jamestown on the third difficulty (Charge ship!) and called the game done. Very happy with what these guys produced and looking forward to their next game.
Got Grimrock in the...

Oh god combat in Arcanum is so bad. I hope your character has plenty of Charisma for recruiting dumb bruisers who can bash everything to bits or is himself/herself a dumb bruiser who can bash...

Finished Jamestown, more or less. Beat the last level--the Charge ship came through for me! I had written it off most of the game and mostly used John Smith with some switching back to Raleigh for...

Played a bit more Darklands but frustrated with the repetition required. I have another job to kill a local raubritter, but my guys are basically too weak to take him on, so it seems I have to wander...

Started over in Darklands. Actually assigning skill points in character creation was a pretty big deal. Killed a robber knight and made a bunch of money and I'm slowly making progress with my skills,...

Started playing Darklands last week. Wandered into a robber knight's castle to see what would happen, realized I was in way over my head, couldn't figure out how to scroll the battle screen to...

Oh no! I really recommend you give it another shot. It took me three tries to get into it. A real strong candidate for "Great games with terrible beginnings." The combat is awful, I'm afraid, and...

Finished SpaceChem a couple weeks ago, and haven't really played much since. SpaceChem was really so great. I felt my brain pushed at every step, and it ended right at the point where I thought Zach...

I'm partial to this one, mostly because of the music:

Yeah I'm not sure the memorization is necessarily a black mark against it. Your ability to remember and repeat a set of button presses may not be a useful skill, but it is a skill, and there's a...

Just started playing SpaceChem again after a while and several computer transfers. Goddamn it is good. The puzzles are just so... mesmerizing. I feel like my brain is amazing when I solve them,...

My problem with action RPGs is mostly with the use of traditional hit point systems. It's frustrating to me when I hit a regular human in the face with an axe or a machine gun or a fireball and that...
YESSSSSSSSSS. Everyone go play quest for glory!
Edit: RPS ate my all-caps.

Just started playing Jagged Alliance 1 for the first time. I know a lot of people say to skip it and start with JA2, but it seems pretty great so far. I'm still learning the mechanics and especially...

Let me repeat what Sabrage said: Skip the sidequests! Unless a party member asks you to do it, it's a waste of time in a cookie cutter environment.

Gotta agree with Wizardry here. Pretty much everything I ever try these days works right away in DOSBox. Wizardry, I took a crack at The Magic Candle recently, at your suggestion. Read the manual and...

Not entirely sure if serious, but not a bad idea even if not. I suggest you make good use of heights, both for world-building and combat. I want to be able to climb/jump on top of stuff and...

Re: Max Payne: I agree wholeheartedly with Miker. Max Payne 2 is still great, 1 is a little too long and isn't fun enough moment to moment to make up for it.
Been going through a bunch of DOS...

No, the whole point of competition is not to win. There are many things that people like about competition: there is a social aspect, the exhilaration of testing yourself against another person, the...

That mission's just a huge pain. You'll probably have to try a bunch of times. Another thing you can try to do is land your bike on top of the train when you go over that little bridge in the...

I don't remember the game being too difficult in the early going. If you follow the tips from the first couple missions, you should do pretty well. A few tips:
- The game is meant to be played...
