    So! I read The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet or: That book with the name I can never effing remember by Becky Chambers. It's a very rare sort of sci-fi book, especially nowadays in the grim,...

    But that doesn't obligate anybody else to show any sort of respect for it at all. It was his qu'ran. If he wants to burn it, that's his business. It's already impolite, I don't think anybody'd argue...

    The core challenge in a lot of games from a design perspective is often that players are their own worst enemies. Almost all interesting narrative (and I don't mean pre-written plots, but even the...

    I got a guy on my team. Sigurd Jacobsen. Norwegian guy.

    Who, inevitably, levels up into a ranger. The only class in the game that wields a sword. Alright, I think, I needed a ranger.

    My first experience is.... dang, it can be hard. I had to retry the first (not 100% scripted) mission 3 times to actually get it. It's not that I mind losing soldiers - I lost 2 in the run I...

    Ok, Bands of Mourning finished. Yeah, it didn't quite hit the highs of Alloy of Law or Shadows of Self, kinda because it got a bit caught up in its own worldbuilding? But for people who love that...

    It depends what you want. The general consensus is that Dirt Rally is the superior game, but it's also more of a sim game. Not full sim, but definitely leaning that way. Sebastien loeb rally hasn't...

    I've been reading Bands of Mourning, the third Brandon Sanderson book set in the 19th/20th century part of the Mistborn series. So far, it's a good one. Not sure it's quiiiiite as good as Shadows of...

    I haven't yet, but I just started doing the level 3 stuff myself, and there's definitely some buffed skills there - stressful incantation has picked up a target mark, etc. Plus yeah, monsters are...

    The damage I'd keep, or nerf slightly. I'd take the stun out entirely. What does he need a stun for? He's a front row killing machine with a powerful self/stress heal and a blight attack. It sort of...

    I've not really used the abomination, but I suppose if you wanted to balance him, I'd debuff the manacle attack substantially and make it waaaay more stressful for the party when he's transformed....

    Speaking of learning nothing, the more I play, the more I'm seeing the virtue of letting the light go out a bit, and playing with a party that doesn't give a damn if it's shuffled. Crusader with holy...

    Ran into the collector for the first time. Lovely guy. It was a tough fight, made all the tougher by a level 0, masochistic hellion (from walking into traps to focus fire from stress mobs, the...

    Yeah, I mean, it's possible to take a critical, balanced, detached view of it as a book, and that's fine, but it's more like someone wrote the book form of going 5 rounds on a rollercoaster with a...
