    Given my current PC's lack of modernity, and the new-consoles-induced rise of graphical requirements in games, I'm finding it hard to get hyped about many things at the moment, as it seems unlikely...

    Yes, I do like the breakables (although they're not terribly consistent - some windows are surprisingly impervious whilst identical ones are fragile), and the general amping up of the dynamics of the...

    Currently, after returning from holiday with limited internet and saving up the recommendation since then, playing Quake mod/partial conversion Arcane Dimensions.
    It's rather good, even if it's more...

    To be honest, it seems more likely that I'll stall on a game than complete it nowadays, unless it's pretty short or really compelling.
    With longer games, my completionism tends to burn me out on...

    Not necessarily - there are old people who didn't vote for the past. Generally, the more progressive you are in youth, the more likely you are to be still a reasonably in-touch old person - and...

    I got: nothing at all (in the Steam sale).

    although, I did get Devil Daggers on sale just afterward, only to discover that the OSX support isn't actually there. (It lets you "install" it on OSX,...

    I mean, I didn't object to clicking everything to find out what it did (and I enjoyed the production design etc). It's just that I'm not entirely sure I was supposed to be having to click everything,...

    The thing is, this just seems to make the Lords into another version of the Commons. I'd rather the Lords was chosen by some means different to the Commons, as otherwise it seems like rather a waste...

    I bought this and basically had no idea what to do; the puzzles I did solve seemed to work basically randomly. Is this something of a marmite game?

    Well, in the UK, it would have helped if we'd actually established an independent, compulsory press regulator with actual powers (like we looked like we might actually do post-Phone Hacking), rather...

    Which is, incidentally, one of the key arguments for representative democracies in general. People can't be expert at everything (and frequently can't be bothered to be, either), so it's better to...

    It's also worth pointing out that there's well established sociological evidence that when populations are stressed, they tend to naturally emphasise "in-group" over "out-group" when making value...

    It's not really a "Quake" reboot, though, is it?

    It looks like it's aimed at being a sort of mechanics-level fusion of Quake 3 Team Multiplayer and what I think get called "Hero Shooters"...

    Well, and more bullet-dodging stuff. (I think that how tolerable Undertale's random encounters are depends on how much you enjoy its humour, sure - for me, definitely the humour did not outweigh the...

    I dunno, I remember getting very annoyed with the sort-of-random thugs who try to mug you in the "general" space in Sigil in Torment; it would definitely have benefitted from having those removed...

    Yeah, now you mention it, it's a bit disappointing that the AI-controlled races don't seem to have leaders (or at least, leaders visible to us) in the way that PC races do. It wouldn't have to be as...

    I think the general assumption from book-readers and prognosticators was: Melisandre will indeed raise Jon from the dead, but his "soul" will have also done the warg-thing into Ghost, with possible...

    I have to say, I really had the same kind of issues with SR:DC too - the writing seemed awesome, but the combat seemed... odd.
    I don't think it's a turn based games thing for me, although it might...

    I think the degree to which things are shades of Grey in the SMT games also kinda depends on your own moral perspectives. Certainly, when I played through SMT:Strange Journey (sort of SMT3.5) on DS,...

    What, really?
    I actually really quite like some of the music in the Amiga compilation (although some of it is also terrible, to be fair).
