    I believe there is, but you're a monster for wanting it. Food is easy to come by if you do a little farming. You could also play on a lower difficulty level. I'm still waiting for them to bring back...

    I think that's standard for anglophone countries in general. I don't know how we managed to survive before the postwar migrations.

    Currently playing Watching Arma 3 Download.

    OK, I'm off to a mountaintop to build a flesh-koan.

    I've killed a lot of people with stomp. Oh, and some of the halberd specials are just insanely powerful.

    Speaking of games in which you potter about, I've been playing Starbound 1.0 (the unstable branch on Steam). It's... Pretty good! Also a bit Unstable. There's less grind in the early game than...

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who loves this game. It's interesting that you're so reticent about recommending it, though. To me, this is exactly the kind of game that more people need to play,...

    Direct democracy worked pretty well for classical Athens. The stuff about actual democracy being 'chaos' that needs to be restrained is mostly apocryphal nonsense transmitted by people who were and...

    Jon's election was clearly because he hits things with a sword and has a willy. Aside from being a Stark, those seem to be the main requirements for a king in the North. Poor Sansa doesn't even have...

    Picked up Hegemony 3 for half price on Steam. It's a bit rough around the edges but really very good. The original was an excellent, tense wargame that did a surprisingly good job of modeling ancient...

    The problem with statements like this is that the term 'populist' is doing all the heavy lifting but is rarely defined or theorised. Internationally, now, 'populist' is a term of denigration, but it...

    I know you mentioned Dragon's Dogma, but if you haven't tried that one, please do. There's also Skyrim, where you can do anything you want and will discover very quickly how you like to play.

    Where's the fun in that?! Anyway, sometimes things that seem needlessly complex are actually just as complex as they need to be; I think demands for clarity tend to presume a somewhat simplistic...

    This is heartening. The broken automation and sheer unmanageability of armies was my biggest beef with HOI3, and the battle plan system sounds great. Maybe playing the USSR will no longer be an...

    I like the idea of multiplayer in a paradox game, but the time commitment always seems too high. It's a pity no-one makes good strategy games that support play by email anymore.

    Anyway, when I...

    HOI3 was a trainwreck, so I'm approaching this one with skepticism, but it seems to have fixed a lot of problems with the previous game and made it generally less fiddly.

    I think Marge is playing a long game. She's far to canny to just give in like that, especially given the lack of warning. Agreed that it's great to see things moving again. Blackfish, the Brothers,...

    Lots of people play games other than recent AAA offerings, though. Minecraft runs on anything, KSP has a Linux version, etc. The situation is also quite desperate. I really, really don't want to...

    Soloing O&S seems to require mostly luck to get past the first stage, frankly. I've done it, but if they don't move the way you need them to, you're basically screwed. Not worth the trouble.

    FWIW, I never expected to like Dark Souls until I saw someone playing it and thought I'd give it a go. Once it got its claws into me, though, there was no going back. So I can definitely see why it's...

    Hmm. To be fair, I found SG:U literally unwatchable, so I can't talk about it in detail. I have very limited patience for melodrama. Actually, I'm not a fan of SG in general, but Atlantis was somehow...

    Re: 'quality' builds, be advised that two-handing a weapon does increase your effective strength, as well as giving a small arbitrary damage buff. So a DS1-style '27/40' build (27 strength, 40 dex)...

    The trick with those Ithryll Knights, I find, is not to pussyfoot around. You can parry but the timing is tricky, and they have some nasty combos if you let them get the initiative. There are some...

    Like I said: he's a proper Knight Errant. He suffers, and suffers, and wanders the earth because of a stupid love that can't possibly be requited, and the idiocy of it all becomes somehow noble.

    I assume this mashup has been done somewhere?
