    Absolutely get Bastion. It's fantastic. Great voice work, wonderful music, and a solid game to boot.

    Transistor combat is meant to be played in two phases. Real time is where you dodge enemy...

    I've started a couple of Empire characters in SWTOR and I'm enjoying it for exactly these reasons. The options available are typically good enough that you can detach yourself from the whole light...

    I never understood Mass Effect's Paragon/Rogue axis to be about morality. You always play the hero, it just gave you some choices about the kind of hero you wanted to be.

    Great pair of videos. Carbot's stuff is such a pleasure. The Heroes of the Storm videos are so, so good. I loved the mixtape. Museum Curator has my favourite samples out of this expansion.

    As reluctant as I am to trot out this cliche, the game proper starts at level 70. Blizzard has come to understand this, so you level fast. It's useful to learn what the skills do, but it doesn't last...

    I really like my Demon Hunter. She got a bow that roots pretty soon after hitting level 7, and since I never found anything better I've been leaning on a control heavy strategy with using the cheap...

    Found one! Excellent.

    Another aside on Arcen: they are hands down the hardest working developers in the business. They're a very small studio, and yet they are constantly updating several of their...

    I know this is an advocacy thread, and I'm stepping outside that a little: I have no idea. That's the case for all Arcen games. There's a parallel universe quality to them means they can be tough to...

    Any given Arcen game is like no other game. Those folk just don't think about game design like anyone else. It means what you get will be quirky by nature, and can take a little time to grasp, but...

    The thing about this point in my XCOM campaign is I feel like I'm right on the edge of good things. I've got three satellites in production, to grab the US and both South American nations for that...

    OK, XCOM, let's talk. First there was the downed UFO with the first Mechtoid and Cyberdisc this campaign. Some great soldiers got a little banged up, but we got it just fine. The landed UFO a day...

    Can someone do Borderlands 2 for me? It's a game I want to like. I've put some hours into it. I like the aesthetic just fine.

    But look. It's a game about its guns. And the guns feel... OK. Just...

    You don't like the colour blue, is what I'm getting from those pairings.

    I've spent some more time with Renowned Explorers, and I'm liking what I'm playing quite a bit. The encounter system is grid based tactical mood management. Your 'attacks' can either be aggressive,...

    I also got Hand of Fate, and I've been really enjoying it. I also picked up Renowned Explorers, but it'll need some considerable time to unravel. More to follow, perhaps.

    It seems solid. It'd be nice to pop a Velen's in there somewhere. What's the reason for Holy Fire? Speaking as someone who hasn't played Priest in ages.

    Man, apparently my new nemesis is Reliquary Seekers? 1 mana 1/1s that turn into 5/5s if they're the 7th minion. I wouldn't have thought they were worth anything. Who would pick that thing in Arena?...
