It wouldn't be amusing because it would mean that somebody had killed Alec and replaced him with a pod person who voted weird. Which would actually help explain why I'm doing so poorly.

In other news, I have tried and failed to get Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance running on Windows 10. Apparently I need dgvoodoo and spend hours working on it to make it happen. Sigh...

Huh. I could have sworn The Inner World was on the calendar but you're right, KR0 is the only proper point-and-click and even that is avant-garde rather than traditional/throwback. I don't know what...

Yeah, one problem we are experiencing is that the old method of "doing research and seeing what got covered and what they said" is hard simply because RPS is now very tactical with their staff: each...

Dishonored 2 may just fail to get picked on technical failings alone - I imagine plenty of the staff were Waiting For Patches, and that means no play this year.
But yeah. I didn't expect to win...

I was very excited about today's pick - I finally got one! And one that most others didn't! The break I needed!
And then I looked at my list and I didn't pick it. I swear I did. This must have...

This year I've suffered to find good non-RPS gaming sources as once-reliable sources become increasingly clickbaity (Eurogamer!) or shift to video, and as such there are some things I've just missed...

Alms, I know for a fact you don't need to add a single game to your wishlist because your backlog is the size of Mt. Everest :)
But seriously, Sorcery 3 is amazing and I am assuming the same for...
Thanks for all your work!

And spoken_starfish takes the lead! And another game from my shortlist that I cut because of second-guessing.
05-12-2016, 01:12 AM
P.S. Yeah I also dunno what is up with that title, when Mechwarrior 4 did it it was an intentional throwback/design statement, this is just...confusing and bland.
P.P.S. Mechwarrior 4: Mercs is...

You may all recall that Mechwarrior Online only came about because they were unable to get funding for the single-player game they wanted to make. I remember one of the pitches was that all weight...
04-12-2016, 06:27 PM
It was on my shortlist - but so were about 50 other games and something had to give :(
03-12-2016, 06:06 PM
True story: I obsessively played the first three Sorcery games, getting absurd amounts of items and objects, and then accidentally deleted my save when moving to a new computer. As such I haven't...

I actually also really like HR, so when I say KG wouldn't like MK, I really just meant MK. The thing with HR is that while it largely ditches the emergence, it's still a game of singular vision; its...
02-12-2016, 10:54 PM
Yeah, but MK doesn't embody any of the things KG liked about Deus Ex - no emergence, no bravery or desire to do anything new or transgressive. But he and Jim are long gone, Graham only likes Human...
02-12-2016, 09:59 PM
I'm not surprised to see this here, because I knew Graham would put it on the list and it was widely played, but I optimistically refused to include it on my list because I played Mankind Divided and...

John is definitely the Odd One Out on RPS, in terms of tastes, so it's pretty hard to pick things he's been assigned to review. I threw him a few bones (Kathy Rain) in my picks but it's definitely...
01-12-2016, 10:51 PM
Yeah, this one I missed because I sort of intended to play INSIDE and didn't want it spoiled, so didn't read any coverage. As noted, I have less optimism about my picks than I have ever had before....

I actually removed a VR game to add Rimworld. I agree that there HAS to be a VR game this year, but I couldn't settle on one I was confident with from the shortlist. My list is full of dumb safe...
Speaking as a new player, this was very confusing to me. Are there universal translators you get later? Etc. I understand why they wanted it to be immediately available, but they needed to come up...
Great, thanks for letting me know :)
26-11-2016, 05:34 PM
That is the list I'd make if I was braver. Tempted to go back to Firewatch for GOTY but good to have a variety of picks. Tilt Brush, Duskers, Hackmud are probably all better picks than some of the...
Okay all - I'm very interested in trying No Man's Sky in its current design state (before patches, improvements, etc). So ALL CRITICISMS OF DESIGN ASIDE - how is it technically, currently? I know...
22-11-2016, 06:55 AM
I probably should not give my 'opponents' any tips, but since I seriously want someone else to win: the issue with Tyranny is not it being too new per se, but that many RPS staff members take a while...
