The linked column is a good high-level take on the game, and matches my impressions from my 3-4 beta weekends. What was particularly interesting was that I found my enjoyment of it increased the…

Oh good grief. Look, it's not like the money was a complete waste. You paid the wages of a few hundred people for several years, and had the potential to establish some roots for this industry in…

To be clear, if you are adjacent to an enemy, there is no movement, period.

However, I found one comment above odd. It's very easy to tell when your "turn" is over.

When it's your turn (ie,…

So what would you mark it down for?

Seriously, start at a 10 and list the cons that drop it down to just above a "D". I'm genuinely interested in what the shortcomings are for folks that are…

Word to the wise: Watch denizens should ignore mainstream reviews. This game hit the nail squarely on the head. I'm loving it.

It was a fair game that was one patch away from being a good game (but not great). It's rough when the legacy of all that work and effort is based on unpatched release code. They were taking lots…

Here's my loony idea: Somebody needs to go all in and make an RPG where you play the character of Jesus.

Wasteland 2 isn't doing anything that anybody else isn't doing when it comes to charging more money for a beta in their Kickstarter pledges.

Yeah, after I posted that I finally noticed that you were referring to the PCGamer posters, and not the little blurb itself.

DDO was ok, but I came across several annoying quirks early on.
