Assuming we're talking Civ: Beyond Earth I'd encourage you to get ye to a talkdown thread.

Whilst this ain't the talk down thread, a healthy slap across the chops with a wet fish every now and again is very much appreciated lest I become too distracted by the shiny baubles and flashy...

It's my sandwich. All the sandwiches are mine.
* it's a tiresome "management" technique preached by way too many of those cheap employee training course I get sent on - basically how to give...

Cool, thanks, sounds like it may hit the "tempting" range.

GOOD NEWS SANDWICH - The Satisfying First Bite
You tried! That's more than most have done. That's more than I've done. You're already doing better than nearly everyone else out there!

KSP normally gets a ~50% or so but I'd encourage regardless. I have over a thousand hours on that game over the last few years - it's not the game for everyone, but if it's your kind of game you'll...

Hmm, some of the biggies I missed from last year might be hitting "worth a punt" prices this summer: Metal Gear Solid, Just Cause 3, possibly Mad Max?
Hell, X-Rebirth must be serviceable by now...

I'd be tempted to play through the 2nd one, though it's certainly not compulsory. There are a lot of returning characters, some just bit parts, some more involved - I found I'd formed opinions of...
I'm a huge KSP fan and so possibly a bit naive but in this instance I'm inclined to take the stated reasons as the actual reasons. Doing *anything* for five years can become a bit of a chore, your...

Factorio - it's all Factorio, all the time. Alec introduced me to it, and his summation is in no way hyperbolic - it's the very definition of the definitive building/management game. Definitely.

Kerbal Space Program
It's a freakin' educational game. "Let's make trigonometry, orbital mechanics, and logarithmic functions fun!"
By setting out not to teach but to entertain it does both in...
That does appear to be one area Stellaris is doing well, and different to the typical space 4x - as a very rough comparison they've copied the CK2 demesne model in that you have direct control over...
I spent much of the weekend catching up on Blorg streams.
And I've gone from "oh my god, this is the game I'm most excited about this year" to "um, maybe hold off for reviews".
I love the...
Wee thank you for Brendan C's EVE articles :)
It's hard to write something in-depth and accurate about Eve whilst remaining accessible & interesting to those who live it day to day, those who have...

I.... hadn't considered that! Hmmm. I suppose the question becomes whether that is worth sacrificing a grenade or a mimic beacon, or bluescreen ammo for. Inventory slots seem really useful, so much...

I had one, and only one, who survived to end game, but by that point they were quite useful. My usual squad at that stage was 2 rangers, a grenadier, a sniper, a specialist, and a...

I've definitely underestimated the sword then, thanks folks. And you're right, as good as Phantom is, I seriously hampered myself by keeping two rangers phantomed for half of most missions. And love...

Finished first playthrough! (ok, technically second playthrough after abortive, disasterous initial attempt on "Commander" difficulty, scaled it down to "Veteran" for the second).
It's good! It's...

It's very demanding of your time. At best you're sacrificing dozens of hours, dependent on your susceptibility to map clearance icon hunts 100+ is likely.
Combat is still... odd, there's a curious...

This thread has kinda died as everybody headed off to relatives for Christmas and went AFK. This is a shame as it denied Aero the credit he* deserves for (a) an impressive, unprecedented,...

Yay for Isaac :) I find myself unsufferably smug.

I read that comment more as a reference to each day's entry being revealed in the title & pre-amble - so we end up knowing what's "behind the door" before we've even clicked on and read the entry. In...

Nah I'm actually thinking this seals Fallouts fate as not getting a spot at all. I know categories are to be taken with a pinch of salt, but they do seem to be attaching a little more significance to...

Chuckle, god damn it! We all agonised over that one :) On the plus side Aerothorn, I'm going to take Alec's opening two paragraphs yesterday as a damn good hint that the first 23 games are out of...

I'm mindful of (and grateful for, given I have yet to finish the game myself) the no spoilers tag. But:
You've probably stumbled across one of those flying Eyebots zipping around talking about...
