    I've spent the last few days gradually reading through this thread, and find myself kind of agreeing with most opinions, weirdly. However, I'm solidly in the positive camp. I really liked it. It was...

    Noo! Don't listen to Helio! Something about Legend of Grimrock turned him evil. That cute green-octopus-with-wings picture is just a facade.

    Yeah, I never really got Spec Ops: The Line. Well, I understand what made people feel feels, but I never had that reaction. It all felt quite artificial to me.

    Of course there's been inflation, but hardly at unsustainable levels, or generally at higher levels than the rest of the world. Most countries keep a watchful eye on inflation, not least western...

    Alas, the telephone tourism has plummeted since cell phones arrived, and someone is spreading vicious rumours about moose biting people.

    But money has always been around, and still democracy flourished. Is it a cycle then, that democracy develops from the people's dissatisfaction with their lack of influence before being supressed by...

    You could be an entertainer! I could listen to hours of that guy being interviewed.

    Yes, people do volunteer work, but they are very much the exception. I've done a not inconsiderable amount of it myself actually, to which a common reaction is "But why?". I'm sure that the amount of...

    I'm not for or against universal basic income (haven't looked into it very much), but I think it would be a horrible idea to make it a good one. People need to work and that won't happen without...

    Interesting thoughts, but I'm not sure I agree with your modern examples. 1) Putin fits the description, but Russia wasn't a functioning democracy to begin with. 2) I'm not an American myself, but my...

    I finally got around to watching the latest episode of Fargo and it was just amazing! I don't think it was the best the show has done, but that dark, dark humour had me laughing more than I have in a...

    The thing is, I'd probably pay $12 for that bundle, but I still won't pay it for the next one, sight unseen. So in my case, they're losing money on this system. But maybe my mother is right and I'm a...

    You'll all be very happy to know that I finally managed to beat Just Cause 2. After spending hours trying to solve the mystery, it turned out that the villain was a broken DirectX .dll file...

    I felt like playing a game again (it's been a while) and decided it was about time for me to give Just Cause 2 a whirl.

    Granted, I only took a glance at the articles, but it seems to me that they're more about threats to national sovereignty than to democracy. The EU is almost by definition a limitation of national...

    Really? I tried watching them not too long ago and was quite turned off by it. I guess I've been spoilt by recent TV production values, but more than anything, I remember the music really taking me...

    I thought the series was alright and agree that the ending felt rushed, but I'm still kind of amazed how much change they managed to cram into eight episodes without it generally feeling forced. I'm...

    Nuuvem has Wolfenstein: TNO at 4.50. That's about as low as it's going to get in the foreseeable future, I reckon. Granted, ITAD says that a place called GameBillet has had it for 2.50, but that...

    Well, "hope for the best, prepare for the worst" is a good mantra. It's not bad, it's just not very good. It's well-made, though. The kind of movie that happens when you throw a poopload of money on...

    But even if exams are not mandatory, we'd still have to spend a lot of time and money to teach the kids about it. The only real difference is that many (probably most) wouldn't try to learn, since it...

    Jade Empire was one of those games which I kind of enjoyed until I realized that I didn't. I mainly kept playing because the setting felt fresh, but the game itself wasn't really my cup of tea. Steam...

    Can't say I agree with this. I think the main objection raised here hasn't been that it's hard, but rather that it's unnecessary for most people. I don't even agree that it's that hard. It's a bit...
