    Agreed!



    This is the bit I'm not so sure of -- it still seems like you're looking at a cultural clash and arbitrarily writing off one side as immature and wrong, rather than simply out of step...

    Looks like the relaunched AI War 2 Kickstarter has started strongly. Hard to read too much into the early numbers, but they're certainly on track to exceed the $50,000 goal by quite a lot.

    Thanks for responding, alms; you make some interesting points but I think we are getting into 'agree to disagree' territory (where we actually disagree, that is, which isn't everywhere), and I have a...

    To elaborate slightly on the distinction between 'in-game chat' and 'in-game actions' (because I think I was rather sloppy and unclear there): to me, interactions between the characters we control...

    Sure, but I'd also be pretty annoyed if a stranger shot me dead, in public or otherwise. Teabagging is something that happens entirely in-game, and my mind processes it accordingly. I think if I took...

    Although I never finished Guacamelee, I had a lot of fun with it, and I don't think it really did anything to shake me off -- probably I just went too long without playing it and lost my momentum. I...

    I strongly recommend OlliOlli if it looks like something you might enjoy. It gave me the same kind of experience as the early Tony Hawk games, though of course it's very different. You can't be sure...

    Man, the one that gets me is that Worms 2 is nearly 19 years old. Playing that with my cousins is one of my fondest early gaming memories. (Discovering roping in World Party and Armageddon was...

    Agreed.

    The idea of 'teabagging' as a serious dominance display, let alone one with any kind of genuine sexual implications, is too strange for me to really entertain. From my perspective it's on...

    Is there a way around the 90 FOV cap yet? I'm interested in this, but anything below about 100 tends to make me feel funny at best, sick at worst.

    Haven't got far with it yet, but Great Permutator seems pretty challenging, and has a demo. Very much a puzzle-solving game, rather than a freeform builder. If the demo link on the site doesn't work,...

    Cool cool, sounds like the way to go is to start with the first one then -- only thing is FFvtTR might have greater novelty value, but it's been so long since I played FF that it'll probably seem...

    I think I'll give AI war another crack soon -- maybe after I finish TIS-100, and before moving on to Shenzhen I/O. Vinraith's enthusiasm and Arcen's attitude make me really want to get into it, but...

    I haven't played it, so I hope this isn't uncalled for, but I recommend taking early reviews of big strategy games like Civ with a massive grain of salt. Even dedicated, experienced players often...

    This is the most annoying bit. No wonder so many lines are delivered with the stress on the wrong words, as if the actor has no idea of the immediate context of what they're saying.

    Roughly speaking it's an updated version of CPM. So the gameplay is quite different from Warsow's, though they're certainly in the same sub-sub-genre. The idea is to use CPM as a starting point...
