    I've condensed even my board game collection to as few boxes as possible for components and a big plastic bin to store the boards like a hanging file cabinet drawer to save space. I'm pretty...

    FINALLY. Ship transfer is really badly needed. Realism can be stuffed on that one, it would make the game so much more pleasant. I can't wait.

    I suppose I don't know what the "facts" of relevance to a high-octane video game are. There isn't really anything to get right other than tone and socio-political implications. It is well understood...

    For example

    That doesn't speak to purpose. That speaks to effect. I don't think many people who state that WWI had little purpose would further say it had little effect.

    You say garish like it's a bad thing! Neoclassicism and similar eviscerated some western folks' appreciation of proper colors. I don't think Ubisoft would pass of the opportunity to both celebrate...

    Hmm. I've found the episodes do better on repeated play than the original game. I'm impressed by how well it holds up in terms of animations! Even with all the new coats of paint on it, it's an old...

    I know an anthropologist who got up to some rather unusual stuff, so I honestly don't know if you meant that as a joke or not. It sort of works both way. :D

    I think I trust Firaxis in that regard. Their expansion packs tend to be significant lumps of game and they do seem genuinely interested in fan feedback. XCOM 2 had issues, but cut content and blind...
