    Lowest APM in the series I would say. DOW, whille not as big in scale, was more of a general mess and came at a time when basically all RTS's were general messes and unwieldy unit control and micro...

    Used Mouse and Keyboard. Went sword heavy in terms of my skills, just out of preference rather than to avoid the signs, but it did solve any issues that might have arisen around their keybinding....

    Dawn of War 3 Beta. Fisher Price 40k.

    Fun and appropriatley unweidly and spectacular, but I don't think it's going to find a niche, especially in Multiplayer which is where RTS live or die these...

    New Vegas to me represents the shining hope of narrative games, a route never since taken, for its ability to provide you with either a purely narrative experience, a pure simulation experience, or...

    I liked Endless Legend for attacking the lead player. Rationally and strategically speaking it makes sense. If one player is too strong in a multiplayer game of course I'm going to try and line up a...

    I trust them to work it out, but when a lot of their design documents for ES2 were EL in space I did worry a bit, because as precisley as you point out, those mechanics married with the theme of...

    I understood how it could come across as representative of her wider character, but it just means she's a badly written character.

    If I wanted to write a character who was an abusuve belittling...

    Thanks for filling in the wider picture : ) I did wonder if that "my face is tired thing" was indeed a thing and a sop to people who talk like that. "I recognise a thing I like/say, yay!" Again, the...

    I really don't think that's enough. There were plenty 19th century contemporary depictions of explorers as being rogues, pirates, devilish etc. And like them the game focusses on these aspects of the...

    Do I think that anyone who has ever been in that context and position-one who if I'm not mistaken corrects Ryder on her grammar and is therefore presumably a stickler for correct use of language-has...

    I continue to be amazed that this escapes censorious conversation regarding colonialism and Orientalism. I don't think it intends to be as problematic as it is on those fronts but it nonetheless...

    It's a shit line that I doubt anyone has ever used in serious professional conversation in the history of words. Unless it's a sort of semantic trait she has in which case I would hope for similar...

    Sorry I guess what I meant was it isn't a direct translation like it used to be. To take the swamp example, at least on the maps I've played, you're both just in a swamp. Whereas in the map my forces...

    Have you tried an all Goblin army? As in not literally all Goblin but just Goblins and monsters, no orcs, ala the Tabletop army. I think the problem with something like that and the skaven in...

    I'd be very surprised if you stick with it seeing how much you liked DD, as it's basically the opposite. Terrible combat, you play it for the story and nothing else. Which does some neat things here...
