    It really isn't. Mini-map spotting was fine because you still had to correlate the map with what you're looking at to locate a spotted enemy. Universal 3D spotting makes engagements terribly short...

    Don't forget that EA bought DICE after 2142 and decided BF had to be bigger than COD. Everything since is a side effect: they put it on consoles, made vehicles repair themselves, added 3D spotting...

    The motherboard may need the RAM modules to be certain sizes or in certain slots to enable dual-channel mode. This gets some free extra performance, so it's probably worth reading the mobo manual to...

    I always want to disable screen shaking effects, and if I see them in a trailer or gameplay footage, I will search to find out if they can be disabled before buying a game. When my eyes are tired,...

    Hegemony III: Clash of the Ancients is $7-ish on GMG. I really liked the original but have only played around 8 hours of III. The resource and upgrading model is different, and I found that when I...

    I just played Momodora: Reverie Under The Moonlight, and it's a fine little game, but rather short and not especially interesting or challenging.

    Posting your stuff in the older game collectors thread might generate some interest. We'd enjoy seeing all the old boxes.

    Lots, but many are skip-able (most quests too), and they're the best parts of the game. The patterns are moderate, but usually there's a smart approach to take advantage of weaknesses, and enough...

    There is no way to save during a mission. They're short though, maybe 10 to 15 minutes per mission including retries. Learning how to approach different situations is more important than perfect...
