    A wild change of subjects appeared!


    So after that, can anyone recommend Rayman for a dollar? It looks like a super sweet platformer that's worth spending a few hours with, even if I don't finish...

    Did anyone pick up Starward Rogue yet, otherwise known as the latest Arcen experiment? I am on record here as saying Arcen get a free pass on the basis of AI War and the last federation, but shmups...

    Yeah - I guess there are ultimately two points here:

    1) Historical context
    2) Genre conventions

    I'm interested in both. It's certainly the case that I can more easily play a game of Twilight...

    So over the last year or so, I've been getting increasingly into wargames of the Matrix/Slitherine/AGEOD persuasion off the back of having a particularly encouraging boardgaming friend (who, of...

    My favourites for this year are all fairly predictable, but it's also the year I've probably bought the most newish games since I was a teenager. In no particular order:

    I've no doubt that 60fps is far superior, particularly when playing action games, but given that I spend most of my time playing strategy games of the less-clicky variety, I have trouble thinking of...

    I'm going to take a crack at it later. It look very close-combat-ish, but probably on a somewhat larger scale. From playing the demo a few years ago, I got the impression that it was somewhat hard to...
