    Being the backward person that I am, I have not read any of these authors except for the big L (though I heard about Mieville many times). Care to throw a title each?

    Can you elaborate? I found the Lovecraftian setting to be inherently pessimistic and strongly focused on how terribly screwed we are.

    Yaaah, that's really bad news actually, requiring to be even more pedantic about who to send where, so that the characters you need for bosses don't overlevel.

    Bad mechanic made worse. I sure hope...

    It is not truly Lovecraftian, though. As in, the horror is not the primary focus. This setting is as philosophically hopeless, but there is certain acceptance of the inevitable oblivion. In...

    kb/m was improved once you fiddled with it a bit. I think I disabled confirming every action (or just pressed the same key twice) and I think I put overwatch under tilde. Much better, since I think...

    Chryssalids are a joke in the new XCOM:EU. I still remember Chryssalids and Tentaculats in the old games.

    Regarding ship speed - when you throw additional fuel into the furnace, there is a chance your ship will temporarily turn into a motorboat. Oh, it can explode too, but the motorboat part is fun! See...

    Sunless Sea is rather flawed but it has unparalled atmosphere and a compelling magical realist setting. Yeah, steaming slowly is not for everyone, but I do believe it has its purpose and would work...

    I think that's the issue. If someone is not into dismissing - because they, say, bond with the characters or whatever - then they are screwed in the current system.


    Yeah, take Hellion :P...

    They could allow any character but just have them downgrade for the mission. For example, a level 5 Crusader would be functionally like a level 2 Crusader when attempting a green mission. Armor,...

    Just hit level 5 with one hero and goddamn this overlevel mechanic is still horrible horrible horrible.

    The game becomes a mad rush to do all the bosses before you are not able to do them with any...

    Eh, this is all about personal impression, but I didn't find Abomination to be as ridiculous. I like him, he is quite versatile and his self heal is evil, but Hellion is more murderous and Crusader...

    It is a balancing thing. You get a lot more stuff from everything, even torch poles can give you precious gems. therefore, if a run is being very easy - like green runs run by level 2 upgraded team -...

    re: game music is often contextual, background and unsuited to isolated listening.

    This is true, game music that is great regardless is rare. But it does happen and this thread enumerates many...

    The only RNG that pisses me in this game is the coach. I need a Hellion for my B team but nooo, I am getting every other hero possible, mission after mission. Eh.

    Thanks to this thread I found Infested Planet which is great and seems terribly under-appreciated.

    Dungeon Warfare looks great! Anyone played Immortal Defense? Looks mildly interesting.

    I think the bigger issue is that it is Double Fine with their spotty reputation, than any specifics of their money-raising model.

    Dunno, I have been playing HotS for months now, having fun, no burn out on the horizon.

    I could argue that much of why HotS is considered "casual" is because Blizzard cut out some "essential"...

    Does it include Warcraft 3? I still vividly remember the teenage revolt of Arthas, the dumbass juvenile prince who got himself eternally cursed to show his father. Kind of told me I might not be the...

    I actually didn't hate them. The black dude felt redundant, but he was black so I felt he was cool (reverse racism!). Vega got bonus points for not being a romantic interest despite looking like one....

    He is a good streamer, tho. If by "good" one understands surreal crazy ramblings that are, incidentally, excellent with certain substances.

    Played the game, finished it in 9 hours 40 minutes, 100% items, difficulty one above normal. Had tons of fun, dunno about all that negativity in this thread.



    I disagree, sorta. While it is by...

    I have cared about countless game (or book, or film, or comic) characters over the years. Provide enough personality in a mix that resonates with me somehow and there we go.

    Eh screw installing another launcher. Will just pirate it in a while.

    NEver heard of the game, but I like Peter David's writing. I wonder how it works in a game, writers are rarely given much priority.
