    Wow, I really don't like Regency Solitaire. Only a few hands in, and I've already encountered a hand where I had to burn around a quarter of my stock cards before I was even offered the possibility...

    It's a different situation. Elite is sending all sorts of game data back and forth, while the game itself is doing all sorts of stuff.

    Game streaming is pretty much you sending controller inputs...

    Unity does have more performance issues simply due to how the engine is designed and implemented. You can learn about the engine, and put effort into improving performance, but you can say that...

    That isn't what happened in this case. The English language can lead to some vague wordings, but the meaning of the line was clear from the context, without even reading the mentioned article. ...

    I think you misread that statement. Procrastination Giant wasn't making a sweeping generalization that NMS fans are all absolutely vile fanatics. He was saying that the referenced article was...

    From the videos on Steam, it looks like it has a lot of automated building features. You don't have to place brick by brick, but can rather lay entire cubes of bricks, and the terrain manipulation...

    One of the devs says that BundleStars has said the situation is unique, something that hasn't happened before. The dev has also said it was a standard and clear contract. I'm guessing the devs are...

    What I'm somewhat interested in is whether or not the highest funded Kickstarters are inherently riskier than lower funded one. They tend to be the most publicized failures, whether their project is...

    So your complaint is that he is a reviewer that sometimes gives low scores to games?

    More than that, he is an evil mastermind who deliberately gives low scores to games in order to deny developers...

    Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition only really supports Windows 7. DMC4SE only supports DX10, which was partially broken long ago in a Microsoft update and never subsequently fixed. (I want to think...

    The drama seems to be mostly on the Star Ruler 2 Steam forum, with people flipping out and attacking the developer for revoking unredeemed keys. (Though a few of people would rather redeemed keys...

    That's an interesting number. My first thought was that 8 was the magic number because the PS4 has eight cores. But then I remembered that the PS4 only allows games to use 7 cores, as the 8th is...

    Might be worth mentioning that this was in an old Indie Gala Greenlight bundle, and the devs apparently promised Steam keys to bundle buyers. It was also sold on Desura, again apparently with the...

    You are talking about a world where people sent death threats and swore off Platinum "forever" for making Bayonetta 2 a Nintendo exclusive. Bayonetta 2, the game that wouldn't have been made if...

    It still has a reputation for being a CPU hog and having performance issues. I know that I'm still wary about purchasing certain types of games when I see "Unity" anywhere in the description. And it...

    That's what I mean, at least when it comes to tabletop. You remember such situations, but they aren't bitter memories. They are just part of the game, the stories that you created playing with...

    It is true of many tabletop games. It just seems worse when it happens in Battletech because you have so few units.

    It is/was more acceptable in tabletop for a variety of reasons. I've posted my...

    Only the developers know what was and wasn't coded into the game, and any one of them probably doesn't know everything.

    Procedural generation, particularly more complex (or just step-heavy)...

    Blue Estate is supposed to be a decent lightgun game. Well, without the lightgun, because PC doesn't bother with a lightgun peripheral. Some people could find the content a bit offensive, though. ...

    Lethal League was in a bundle a few months ago as well. It was part of a BundleStars Indie Legends bundle.

    That is going to happen at times. If you are willing to put your game in a Humble...

    You might want a random chance or some other factor in there, unless you want people rigging battles just to evolve key units. Sure, in real life you can inflate a unit's morale by sending it only...
