    It depends on the game for me. Inconvenience can and will trump immersion.

    Just adding a day/night cycle and shadows to your game doesn't meant that you want realistic darkness everywhere. ...

    Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is a somewhat disappointing licensed Koei Warriors spin-off.

    From a technical standpoint, Koei still continues to dance around producing a solid PC port. It works...

    SPAZ has some nice ideas, and is overall decent, but it is also really shallow. It doesn't flesh out any of its ideas, and the result is a very repetitive game.

    For example, death. SPAZ is one...

    In today's What Would I Have Been Playing, I find NBA 2K17. Did you know that NBA 2K17 is currently having a free weekend on Steam? I didn't, because Steam's front page didn't bother to advertise...

    If you really want to see how bad the 360's d-pad is, play a fighting game that has a training mode which will display your key presses. The 360's d-pad output is quite frankly garbage. Games are...

    They didn't technically have to deal with that Unity thing. They could have stuck with Unity 4, instead of doing a major version change. I remember that years ago the Unity people used to advise...

    It is almost a shame that they have to offer refunds to avoid a public backlash, considering they are killing a mode that people didn't even really want. (People wanted co-op multiplayer, not...

    It is like they are adding my Steam library. Four games added, and I already own all four. (And have no interest in the non-game addition.)

    It is in the $1 tier of the current Bundlestars Chaos bundle, which is a much more affordable gamble than the game's $15 price tag. (Particularly since that $1 tier also gets you Tricky Towers,...

    Decided to play STALKER again, but went with Clear Sky out of mod curiosity. I last played Clear Sky with Complete, but people seem to really hate Complete, so I decided to try Sky Reclamation...

    I own six of the unlocks, putting my second round total to 30.

    Considering half my tepid interest in the first round offerings turned out out to be limited availability titles, and the unlocks add...

    I wobbled and ultimately decided "no". For some reason, I wanted to recall the BeMines as being higher quality, but when I looked I saw that I'd only bought three BeMine bundles in 2016 (25, 28,...

    Yeah, it is kind of annoying that, like Yogcast Jingle Jam, Humble didn't make the limited nature of some games obvious

    On the first day, several games had a little clock icon in the corner, which...

    From what I remember of the novels, it isn't even necessarily a "supposed" to be with Yennifer. At least not in a natural "true love" manner.

    Geralt and Yennifer were attracted to each other, but...

    I feel there are several issues with Unity that make me reluctant to try new releases. Ultimately, Unity's performance seems particularly susceptible to hardware variations, and something that runs...

    295 installed Steam games now, up from last week's 290. Decided to replay STALKER Clear Sky, this time to try the Sky Reclamation mod. Bought and installed Bleed 2. Reinstalled DW8 Empires just to...

    Own? 24.

    The problem from a buyer perspective is that I don't necessarily want any of the remaining titles. Some I either have zero or even negative interest in, while others would make solid...

    Steam says I have 290 installed out of 1721. At any particular week, I maybe play five different Steam games, but sometimes don't even reach that count. Many have been installed without ever...

    One could argue that is an exaggeration.

    It is a bit hard to argue for books, where even schlock tends to be decently constructed. But for cinema? If you really think about TV series and movies,...

    Wow, it looks like they really learned from the failed Kickstarter a few years back. I don't sarcastically mean the reduced goal, though not only is $60k less than the first campaign's $750k goal,...

    You really didn't have to delete Pac-Man 256 for that reason, because it would probably wear out its welcome faster than you had expected if you'd kept playing. It only has interesting gameplay...

    I really, honestly, do not understand your argument then. I believe Vinraith when he says the same.

    Games age quickly. If someone didn't buy your game at full release price in the first year, odds are they aren't going to buy it at full release price any time after that first year. So most...

    Onikira looked like the start of a decent game during its Early Access period. Unfortunately at the time I found it fairly unstable, and never really got far into it.
