    Not necessarily - there are old people who didn't vote for the past. Generally, the more progressive you are in youth, the more likely you are to be still a reasonably in-touch old person - and...

    I got: nothing at all (in the Steam sale).

    although, I did get Devil Daggers on sale just afterward, only to discover that the OSX support isn't actually there. (It lets you "install" it on OSX,...

    I mean, I didn't object to clicking everything to find out what it did (and I enjoyed the production design etc). It's just that I'm not entirely sure I was supposed to be having to click everything,...

    The thing is, this just seems to make the Lords into another version of the Commons. I'd rather the Lords was chosen by some means different to the Commons, as otherwise it seems like rather a waste...

    I bought this and basically had no idea what to do; the puzzles I did solve seemed to work basically randomly. Is this something of a marmite game?

    Well, in the UK, it would have helped if we'd actually established an independent, compulsory press regulator with actual powers (like we looked like we might actually do post-Phone Hacking), rather...

    Which is, incidentally, one of the key arguments for representative democracies in general. People can't be expert at everything (and frequently can't be bothered to be, either), so it's better to...

    It's also worth pointing out that there's well established sociological evidence that when populations are stressed, they tend to naturally emphasise "in-group" over "out-group" when making value...

    It's not really a "Quake" reboot, though, is it?

    It looks like it's aimed at being a sort of mechanics-level fusion of Quake 3 Team Multiplayer and what I think get called "Hero Shooters"...

    Well, and more bullet-dodging stuff. (I think that how tolerable Undertale's random encounters are depends on how much you enjoy its humour, sure - for me, definitely the humour did not outweigh the...

    I dunno, I remember getting very annoyed with the sort-of-random thugs who try to mug you in the "general" space in Sigil in Torment; it would definitely have benefitted from having those removed...

    Yeah, now you mention it, it's a bit disappointing that the AI-controlled races don't seem to have leaders (or at least, leaders visible to us) in the way that PC races do. It wouldn't have to be as...

    I think the general assumption from book-readers and prognosticators was: Melisandre will indeed raise Jon from the dead, but his "soul" will have also done the warg-thing into Ghost, with possible...

    I have to say, I really had the same kind of issues with SR:DC too - the writing seemed awesome, but the combat seemed... odd.
    I don't think it's a turn based games thing for me, although it might...

    To be fair, this is a not-uncommon standpoint - Star Wars has a lot more tropes from traditional Fantasy than traditional Science-Fiction (and directly takes strong influences from a bunch of...

    I think the degree to which things are shades of Grey in the SMT games also kinda depends on your own moral perspectives. Certainly, when I played through SMT:Strange Journey (sort of SMT3.5) on DS,...

    I dunno, I found that FEZ didn't really make it clear which bits or how much I was supposed to have to do to get an ending. Some of the "non-core" bits I found more easily than core bits, and spent a...

    Quoting this just because it's something I'm slowly realising in my first playthrough of EW (on Classic). The game wants me to know about all these cool additional things I can invest in, but...

    Ergh, sometimes XCOM's visibility mechanics confuse the heck out of me. (And this is why I don't play Ironman XCOM. It's one thing to mess up and wipe because you're an idiot, it's another to move to...

    What, really?
    I actually really quite like some of the music in the Amiga compilation (although some of it is also terrible, to be fair).

    It also seems that Firaxis learnt a lot both Long War and other tactical games in improving XCOM2 over XCOM. (For example, the "line of sight" indicators for different enemies now change dynamically...

    Yeah, I do agree with you, as I hoped was clear. I wasn't sure if you were European or otherwise, though: I've found that talking to (especially Americans) about 80s/early 90s game music is a...
