I don't see how people can make sweeping generalizations about "phone games" being garbage/a waste of time and at the same time say good things about games like Avernum & Avadon. Those games have…

Yea, it's pretty good. The interface is surprisingly good at giving you a proper overview of your empire, something that I feel that a lot of 4X games fail to do. While I don't think it's the best 4X…

I wonder if Notch will end up doing with his money, if this deal goes through. He has previously stated that he did not know what to do with the money he got from Minecraft. While he did (as stated…

Any game where character development is a central part of the gameplay. If the game also contains the defining trait from another genre, it's a hybrid.

I think there is an important distinction that needs to be made here, that of "trash/sub-optimal options" and that of "trash/sub-optimal builds". The former would be an option that is inherently…

That was my experience as well. It started out quite good, but it went downhill quite quickly and after a while it was just a pain to play.


What? Might & Magic IX was excellent. That character…

Just make sure to not judge the game by its translation, which sadly is among the worst I've seen in any text heavy game. The poor translation harms other parts of the game as well, as it can be hard…

It's hard to say exactly how good the game is. Your enjoyment depends on how well you can live with the terrible translation. Combat is also rather poor, but that's a lesser concern, considering the…

That's blatantly untrue. Weight gain/loss follows a very simple pattern:
If energy in > energy out you'll gain weight
If energy in < energy out you'll lose weight

Here it's often the other way around, roleplayers pick up wargames. Most wargamers I know come from a pen & paper RPG background.

And pen & paper RPGs were never that big here either. For me it…

I think we have a very different look on these shooters then. For me, the progression system is a take it or leave it kind of thing. It's not why I play those games. The closest thing I've seen to a…

The way I define a computer roleplaying game (as opposed to a pen & paper one) is simple:
Does it have character development and is it a core part of the game? If so, then yes, it's a CRPG. It has…

I would personally not have had the willpower to finish the game without it. That keyring prevents so much frustration. It's not as important for Serpent Isle, as that one already has a keyring.
