I switched to Win10 right from the beginning, upgrading from Win 8.1. I was never friend of Win 8's start menu overhaul and App philosophy. It never worked well with PCs, but it was at least…

The times they are a-changing… Back in the days BG was categorized as simplification.

Actually, that's not necessarily true. For example it's dependant on the quality of writing. I remember several dialogs in Dragon Age: Origins where my choice lead to a direction that I clearly…

I don't think role-playing is about playing, dying, figuring out a better strategy and re-playing the whole passage. That's the old dungeon crawler approach, a heavy combat-driven way, because it…

The same could always happen to non-public companys. If you're in need for cash and bring in some private investors it can change the direction of a company as well. It becomes "dangerous" when…

How convenient. I missed the Daily Deal on Steam some days ago.

I don't think that free games without any condition solve the problems of a failing KS campaign.
