I personally found SR2 to be better than SR3 (with the mod that made the game run properly… SR2 might quite possibly have the worst port I've ever seen). The fact that it had serious moments…

You should! They are actually really good, and I say that as someone who prefer my T/SRPGs to be a bit more meaty than the standard JSRPG-fare. Both FE games for GBA & the GC & Wii FEs were really…

Call of Cthulju: Wasted Land has very little in common with the pen & paper RPG, apart from the setting. It's a tactical wargame set during WW1 where you face Lovecraftian monsters as well as German…

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…

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