    I'm going for a full Baldur's Gate playthrough at the moment. I've reached Siege of Dragonspear. Having played BG immediately before it I think I appreciate it more. Sure, it's not as good as BG2,...

    AoW 3 is a really good game. What also impressed me is how well they updated it. Every patch seemed to correctly identify shortcomings in the systems and overcome them. It's actually not common for...

    Since Rooks hasn't played through BG2, he might be getting mixed up between the "Jon Irenicus" who appears in the dream sequences, and the real Jon Irenicus.

    I always find it annoying in games when enemies would run away. You'd have to make them give full XP and drop all their loot and never ever come back again for me to not be annoyed by this happening...

    Thieves Guild is a pretty rubbish level in my opinion.

    Can't say that I'm a big fan of watching strangers play games. I do like talking about games I like so by extension I like watching people I know play games I like.

    Heavy Rain was a fun game to...

    I can't imagine not taking Implacable, an amazingly useful skill in all situations.

    I remain of the belief that XCOM would be much better if the strategic layer structure didn't punish deaths so...

    This isn't particularly unreasonable. The obvious deal to strike is for EU citizens in Britain and British citizens in the EU to retain their leave to remain and work. Since the British government...

    Most enemies in Baldur's Gate 2 and almost all enemies in Baldur's Gate 1 have no Magic Resistance at all.

    Having said that, Sorcerer is a bit of a newbie-trap, since you get very few spell picks...

    They understandably want it sorted out as quickly as possible, since they're not in a great position at the moment and probably want to get on with purging the EU of malign British influence/creating...

    Oh, yeah, Early Access games means that just checking my Steam purchase history is not a good way to answer this question.

    I've mostly been playing stuff I bought over the last couple of years and never get round to trying properly. I guess XCOM 2 is probably the best I've played from this year so far, but I am just...

    Diablo 2 springs to mind. I played it all the way to the end (of Normal only) and really didn't like it. I got the expansion years later for super cheap and thought I'd have another go. Suddenly I...

    Gamebooks are something of a red herring in this conversation I suspect, because their interactivity is usually mainly framed very openly as a puzzle to solve. In any case, good narratives are...

    When I'm doing repetitive stuff I prefer it if I can tinker slightly as I go along and try to work out what tinkering makes me more efficient and what makes me less. I think of all the games I've...

    I usually dropped it on the enemy artillery, killed a few and drove some away, disrupted the enemy advance, flew off again back to my lines to heal, repeat as appropriate. That worked quite well,...

    I must have been very lucky with my character build because I had no real problems with the initial area in Fallout 2. Sadly I didn't enjoy the game too much, mainly because I never really like...

    I didn't really know why I was even in that sidequest, apart from the fact that it's a big sidequest and I'm playing an RPG so doing big sidequests is what I do. With that in mind, I chose to find...

    My feeling is that they were genuinely trying to make a strong all-round RPG in Planescape but just implemented many elements poorly.

    I haven't played Fallen London, but this fairly accurately describes my experience of Sunless Sea. Well, 1/4 of it---the other 3/4 is spent roaming a basically empty sea on the way to your "reward"...

    I'm happy to discover that I am as useless at using torpedoes in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada as I was in the tabletop game.

    Beamdog should probably have just given everyone infinite +0 ammo. There is a source of infinite +1 ammo in Throne of Bhaal so the engine supports such things.
