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...

Sounds good, that's the kind of thing I'm hoping for!

I've been back into TIS-100 recently after a break, and just now realised that I'd either forgotten or never noticed the 'JRO' instruction (which allows you to jump by an offset determined by a...

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.
Looking forward to getting into this, but first I have to finish TIS-100! I'd taken a long break from that after getting stuck on a puzzle, but I'm back into it now and having a lot of fun -- I think...

I found it interesting, at any rate. I don't think any of it is supposed to override people's actual experiences of playing the games, or analyses of their design; it's more about giving us a reason...

Thanks for that, by the way. I had a lot of fun with one of the old shareware versions many many years ago, so I was excited to see Tennis Elbow pop up again and couldn't resist picking up the latest...

I finally got around to to trying Else Heart.Break() yesterday, and ended up playing for several hours. So far I'm really excited by it. It seems diametrically opposed to most of the modern game...

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...

I'm really enjoying Downwell at the moment. I've only played it for a few hours, but so far it seems like exactly the kind of simple, tight, satisfying arcade game I need right now. Suitable for play...
I'm jumping in a bit late here, but re the relevance of time played to review credibility: there's no fixed relation, it really depends on the content of the review. For example:
Excellent, thanks for letting me know.
To those playing with a mouse, how does it feel? Have you noticed any lag or negative acceleration? And if not, did you notice anything wrong with the input in JC2?
(I think I'm going to get...

I'm not quite sure on what points we agree and disagree, so I'll try to set out my timer-related opinions a bit more clearly than I did the first time :)
I'm pretty aware of the role of item...

I'm afraid most of my answers are 'I'm not sure', but I'll tell you what I know!
(This turned into a wall of text and I don't really have time to condense it. No hard feelings if you can't be...

Sounds like Reflex isn't really for you, but just to clarify for the sake of others: Reflex is far closer to CPM than to Warsow. Reflex's gameplay is basically a tweaked version of CPM; Warsow was...

The gameplay is already excellent (though still being tweaked), but everything else is under construction. Matchmaking is still to come; the graphics are nice but unfinished, and few of the maps are...

Reflex is still coming along nicely:

I found this round pretty intense! I made extravagant use of the event restart option, but never the stage restart trick, so when I got through the first couple of stages with a decent time it was a...
Cheers -- looks like it might be a good idea to give the Momo a go, but be willing to upgrade to a 900° wheel before I get too used to it.
Thanks guys! I actually managed to stumble upon an old Momo Racing wheel (for free), so that'll do me for now, but I do appreciate the advice and will keep it in mind if/when I'm ready to take a step...
Thanks for the response!
Someone on reddit mentioned the Thrustmaster T150, which is supposed to be released next month. Recommended retail price is $200US/170GBP, which convert to $280 AUD...
(Thought I'd revive this thread rather than starting one of my own. I also posted my question on reddit's 'simracing' subreddit, but I'm not sure how much traffic that gets.)
I'm new to racing...

I was enjoying the conversation at first -- sure I jumped in to defend my beloved SpaceChem, but I was also genuinely interested in how and why we'd had such different experiences. (You seemed to...
