    I triple-skulled with a reroll in a real-life Blood Bowl tournament once, so video games have to do a lot to get me to question their RNG.

    I like gamebooks and still play them regularly, but Starship Traveller is a weak entry in the series. Also note that this is totally a faithful adaptation of the 1980s gamebook in all ways, with all...

    Neverwinter Nights. I've never played Jade Empire. I think it's the only Bioware RPG I haven't played. It came out at a time Bioware were doing things that didn't seem interesting to me, and I don't...

    Real time with pause has worked very well in plenty of games. To be honest, I think that pretty much every RTS or similar game would be improved in single player with an active-pause feature.

    Of...

    DA2 is absolute bobbins, unless you like idiots and hate fun.

    The calm and harmonious nature of the Tempest's crew is in keeping with the optimistic tone of the game and the Andromeda Initiative. Similarly, the spiky and wtf-you-moron nature of the DA2...

    Don't know whether you're familiar with the game mechanics, but it involves a lot of dice rolling and the structure of the game is rather simple: draw card, roll dice, repeat until you win or lose....

    This is the third time I've played it, so I clearly like it.

    I wasn't particularly fond of their Enhanced Edition content either for BG1 or BG2, I felt they didn't really get what made a good IE...

    I'm playing Dragon Age: Origins, The Witcher 3, and Baldur's Gate (have reached Siege of Dragonspear) because of course playing three big RPGs at once is sensible.

    Yes, definitely a pleasant 7.5 game for me too.

    Now, if they made a game with the combat and Nomad from Andromeda and the Everything Else from Inquisition, that would be quite something.

    Stellaris should be a lot easier to get into than CK2 or EU4 because at the beginning there isn't actually very much to do, so you naturally ease in to it better.

    When it comes to patching, you...

    In such a case, the answer you come up with on the spot becomes immediately true, and true in exactly the way that you intend for it to be true. This isn't clear-cut in a computer game. Is it true...

    I think one of the main problems with the scene and with the trope in RPGs in general is that at that point the player is supposed to choose a response when they don't even know what is true. Were...

    Is there really no quicksave? I can't find an option for one.

    Rebel Galaxy is my go-to game for straightforward fun these days.

    I got Stellaris this week. I like it. Extradimensional aliens just ate all my worlds. Time for another game.

    I think the moral of DA2 is that you can't be a hero who saves the day for everyone when you and everyone else are complete idiots at all times.

    My Numenera playthrough has been sidetracked once I saw a friend play Thief Gold for the first time and now naturally have to play it through myself. It's even better than I remembered.

    One thing that works in its favour is that a lot of your character advancement choices help you in and out of combat. The skills and abilities part doesn't usually, but increasing your stat pools and...

    New Torment is interesting so far, haven't played much yet though. It has the significant advantage over Planescape that it's very clear what its focus should be, both in the way it's designed and...

    It always did seem rather silly that the Sovereign would spend so much time dicking around rather than just summoning the Reaper Horde when he realised that things had gone wrong. Harbinger's plan in...

    I'm going to have a go at the new Torment. I didn't like the old one at all but I'll make an effort to get into this one.

    Currently I favour Rebel Galaxy and Final Liberation as games to play when I don't want to tax myself too much... both games do require concentration though. I don't play an awful lot of games that...

    Baldur's Gate 2 gets about as close as I could expect from a game of that scope. Mass Effect 2 was pretty much perfect for me, although I can understand why someone who really liked the first game...
