    Not that it matters much, but as the OP, I'd consider a mod removing the holiday reference from the title and making an Evergreen Talkdown to be a friendly amendment.

    Don't see the need for a a...

    Was your favourite part of Dead Island the part where you stopped to search a body or container every six seconds? Would you like to reduce that to every three seconds? Now what if I told you I'd...

    Against All Games - The Talkdown Thread

    Do you feel it? Here come all the video games. Again. You don't need any of them, of course - but Gaben doesn't care. He's going to make you buy them, unless you're strong enough. And alone, you...

    Speaking of nice things, I kind of recall someone said them about Perimeter in a discussion of Creeper World 3. It's a weekly on Steam... any opinions?

    Em Short's been linked already, and this is near the top of that 50 Best list, but it still bears stating explicitly: you really should play Counterfeit Monkey.

    Dragon Commander is not that game. Dragon Commander has not learned much from any game. Or, it's learned too much from the wrong games. Or the wrong things from too many games? Anyway, it's very...

    Agreed. It's a beautiful game and a great concept, but often unexpectedly frustrating - not because of the puzzles, but because it's not designed well enough to communicate its expectations in...

    Very much agreed. Nothing to add. I'd just like it if this game got more exposure.

    First game? Hide and Seek. First video game? Pong, or maybe Pac Man. First PC game? Toss-up between Lode Runner and Think Quick, but either way, Think Quick was the first to thoroughly fascinate me,...

    These were my first thought too, and in both cases it's not just the format, but how "tactile" they feel - especially Card Hunter. Its exceptionally well-designed to give you a lot of feedback, so...

    "Kidnapped is a psychological story-driven horror game, featuring emphasis on exploration"

    [glances at play time in Shogun 2, Long War, MOO] Says here one can be downright frowny and spartan about strategy and still enjoy a bit of Warlock :)

    Because Warlock, despite its flaws, offers a highly concentrated 4X experience, for when you don't feel like waiting 1000 turns for Spain to send its aircraft carriers. Let's call it a pure 4Xtract....

    Well said. Even makes me miss the days of shareware compilations, a bit.

    I'm enjoying Coin Crypt immensely. The elegance of its central mechanic - all you have is coins, and depending on context, the same coin will be a spell, a tool, or currency - allows a good range of...

    Sticky: Lisa ...

    Lisa is the midweek deal on Steam, and... does anyone have any experience with it? Because I've never heard of it until now, and yet I already feel like I need it, somehow.

    See, this was much my thought as well... Sunset was by their own admission their first attempt at a "mainstream" game, whatever that means - for them it seems to have meant...
  21. Of Tale of Tales' withdrawal and indie economics

    A bit of old news, this, but reading Tale of Tales' Sunset post-mortem/farewell letter, what really stuck out for me was their sense that a less-than-spectacular launch day was the final nail.

    Sums it up. Uplay's allowed on my hard drive by 2070's sufferance alone (even if 2070 sometimes feels like 1404 after it sold half its soul for one more link in a supply chain.)
