    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...

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

    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!"

    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 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...
