    Aye One of the things I've always enjoyed with Obsidian games is that they have something of a choose your own adventure aspect to them even after you've completed the main quest, due to all of the...

    You don't really need to on experienced because it's very forgiving with the 3 rewinds which leaves a lot of room for experimentation. On the hardest difficulty you only get one so you need to be far...

    Dragon Age 2 then. Not played much, just enough to get my bearings. It's totally strangled by it's own ambition, and is a strange combination of being lazer focused at some points and utterly...

    Played the Game of Life and bumped into Cara Ellison after the protest march in Edinburgh. I think I was probably intense and boring but she was super accommodating and made a lot of time for me, we...

    RPG leveling is a problem exacerbated by lazy game design. I'm going to criticise of all things W3 here as it's a good example of the issues. I wish they had put a bit more thought into monster...

    Inspired by witnessing the beginning of a new era of terrifying geopolitics I have been playing Invisible Inc in training for the Resistance.

    Disagree entirely. Pillars was very enjoyable in many respects but it's content disparity was loopy as fuck. I remember with particular fondness the underground cult which has a population...

    I enjoyed Pillars for it's more low key, folksy nature. The fact that you were exploring somewhere with a fairly small population and even much of that new to the area. It had a nice frontier theme...

    FA missed out by having just The Empire II. They could build to that but Space Isis with fanatical Sith/Empire cultists trying to violently turn back the clock would have been considerably more...

    So after looking into most of the stuff they have released so far I'm going to predict with extreme confidence that there's going to be a tight multiple act core in a DA:Origina vein which will be a...

    Worth pointing out that while the scale of the Witcher was small in respect to geographic context, the map itself was still very large, which was partly why it worked so well. Made everything seem...

    I don't know what most of them do so my pet hate is when there's no indication of this in the settings. Really no reason not to include a brief overview including how memory/performance hungry they...

    Video games are a derivative rather than a medium of themselves, that's how I'm coming to see it. Most games are just a simulation of something else-a story, a sport, a board game, a rule set-and...

    I don't see how folk are presented how you say in 4 to be honest. Speech patterns are modern. The radio DJ guy is the sort of nervous Aaron Sorkin frazzled type who basically didn't exist til the...

    Two observations that haven't, so far as I can see, been made so far:

    I was wrong about Arkham Knight having a garbage plot like the others, it's actually pretty coherent and pleasingly ambitious. It's still ridiculous because that's Batman, but it's pretty relentless...
