    First off, stop using Deus Ex Machina, please, because that's not what it means, nor does it make any sense in this context. It's a story device, and the opposite of random chance.

    The feature creep is pretty much prima facie evidence of bad project management, if nothing else.

    Wait, hold up, have you ever played Battletech, the actual tabletop game? I thought you had but you seem not to have.

    If not, you are speaking from a position of total and utter ignorance,...

    It's exactly the line used by every single organisation which is doing some shady shit but knows the solid evidence hasn't got out (yet) or that it's shady but not illegal. They push that line until...

    I dunno man, even playing with non-friends, it was just an "Ouch hahaha" kind of thing, for me, anyway. When you play games where you're managing risk, it's just something you accept. Battletech was...

    Things exist in a context. Removing them from the context and misleadingly claiming Smart is the only one "behind" that is not helpful or positive. The mismanagement stuff started long before Smart...

    You cannot make it a "hardcore survival space exploration game" when virtually every planet has life, when conditions rarely get outside a fairly narrow range, and so on. Nor can you add "realism"...

    You're repeating the narrative coming directly from Chris Roberts, whilst complaining about the narrative coming from Smart?

    That seems rather hypocritical. Roberts himself has been pretty...

    No, Hong Kong, Dragonfall is the second one.



    No, it isn't.

    The tabletop is relevant because, to judge from the video, the game is replicating the rules of the tabletop to a large degree,...

    Actually, it is not necessarily in your hands in any significant way. The question is, can you change the world/universe generation algorithims? If not, mods for NMS will never get very far, because...

    Did you play the third one? The first one is basically a slightly rubbish game that did well because of the license and KS mania. The second one is a solid game but a bit weak in combat. The third is...

    The Incredibles has a lot going for it, but every time I've seen it since the first, I felt like it's message was more and more obnoxious, and even, borderline evil. Which is pretty rare in a cartoon...

    LoG1/2 also fall into this category. Good reflexes and doing "the dance" trivializes virtually all of LoG1's combat encounters (only ones where you get trapped in a corner or the like really screw...

    That's not very promising given Elite: Dangerous still isn't really a very good game (imho - it is a good space sim on another level though), and certainly isn't what was initially promised (fair...

    It's a pretty misleading thing to keep on linking, so maybe stop? :) Three reasons why:

    1) It's from before May became PM.

    2) It does not, actually, show what you says it does - it shows the...

    I agree completely re: PotD. I started a new game on it, and it was just tedious. Yeah, I can win, if I min-max all my characters, micro-manage everything utterly, and obsess about buffs (or if I use...
