    I think Helio is jealous because he doesn't have any friends, let alone a friend code. I'll see if I can dig mine out later!

    Back on ME:A, there's an interesting interview here: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-12-09-mass-effect-andromeda-interview

    Perhaps the most interesting and hopeful thing is that he says...

    I don't disagree with much of this - indeed it's more than 30 mins if you talk to everyone and do the miniquests and so on.

    But I think the messaging is pretty clear - the council absolutely is a...

    That seems incredibly familiar. Are you sure it wasn't one of the official levels?

    The idea is that you are preventing the equivalent of the Gunpowder Plot. It is not particularly bizarre to send you, given that the Inquisitor has NOT been the Inquisition's primary diplomat or...

    How would UKIP "propping them up" work? UKIP have 1 MP, who is a Tory defector. They have no immediate prospect of having any more MPs. So can you explain?



    Because nothing is forever. That's...

    Unlikely, frankly. Labour's problems come down largely to their leader, who is basically an invisible man, or talking smack about international issues that most voters neither understand nor care...

    No, it really doesn't.



    What? No. That is literally not what happens.

    You are in the Deep Roads (apparently they do call it that, though it's...

    Your example doesn't really seem like an online economy or metagame.

    I mean, what you're describing already goes on. Information and statistics from SP games being sent to the devs is something...

    Well, most people think it's fantastic, it's very well-reviewed and well-regarded, even by DA fans, who are a very hard-to-please bunch.

    I don't know what the hell you're talking about re: Deep...

    So I finished Too Like the Lightning, and it stayed excellent up to the end. It's really an impressive book, not perfect but up there, flying way above even the better-regarded stuff generally. There...

    I'm a huge DA2 fan (and agree that it was the best, and by a significant margin), but to be fair to gamers, the whole "Why am I not a hero saving the world" was not the main problem with DA2. I'm not...

    Sure, that's how the brain-eater works, though. It amplifies existing traits (albeit sometimes turning a very minor one into a huge one), it doesn't usually create entirely new ones. Also really not...

    We know where this is in the timeline. The ships launch around the time of ME2, but significantly before Aftermath. So the genophage won't be cured yet.



    Well, that's a legit opinion, but I...

    We know there are natives, and the writers have said that they whole chequered/dark business of colonization will be looked at. I suspect it might get even darker in a sequel, esp. if set...

    Not quite right - lead writer in ME3, director in ME:A. The director from ME3 left in a huff.

    Walters is at least responsible for some good characters and so on, so cannot be condemned out of...

    I dunno, I seem to remember in actual boardgame Battletech that mechs of that kind of design often got to do "SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKER!", go full alpha strike, and then promptly miss with all their main...

    Indeed. I had to convince friends not to invest in it because I knew how that was going to end up. They were all gung-ho after the Baroque stuff. I was like, don't go there, they don't have a solid...

    This is all a bit confusing. What the hell is a Mechlab? Isn't salvaging and trading the normal MO for the Inner Sphere? It sure was back in the '90s. "Dynamic economy" always worries me because it's...

    I wouldn't characterize Anathem or Cryptonomicon as engineer-worship, per se, just a little... insular, and neither is Reamde. Reamde is cool and witty but way less clever than most of his stuff and...

    Oh and I recently read a fun novel - Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee. A very different kind of SF, it's perhaps most akin to Iain M. Banks' Culture stuff and the recent Ancillary series by Ann Leckie,...

    So I'm reading, or rather, listening to a book that isn't published in the UK yet (to my great irritation), Ada Palmer's Too Like the Lightning.

    I don't know how far through it I am, but if it...

    The most surprising thing was how fast Paula went from a good character to a massive drag. It took like, what, two episodes? I feel like she's not as much in the right as she thinks she is, either....

    If you think China is aiming to pollute more, rather than less, I think you are mistaken. As noted, deeds speak louder than words.
