Deserves some kind of special award for managing to rip off Shadow of the Colossus and Gears of War in the same game. Who'd have thought it was possible?

Yeah, trying to obscure the keyboard from the view of the other players while answering the "ILLUSION Y/N?" prompt. Great days...

And those times when you have an undead creature in an enemy Shadow Wood and have to sit through minutes of the computer trying to attack it with every possible unit: BIDDLYBIDDLYBIP-BIDDLYBIDDLYBIP-BIDDLYBIDDLYBIP-BIDDLYBIDDLYBIP-....

"at USD 30 it's quite expensive for an indie game"

...it's also "quite awesome" for an indie game, which more than compensates! It's very close to Zelda/Metroid/Castlevania quality, although having that uncommercialised charm probably biases it a bit for me.

I'm about 20 hours in, and probably very near the end (although i am a bit stuck).

The recipes, costumes and pets are great - there's a lot to discover.

Yeah, I was being sarcastic. I don't see why they should have to be full of themselves to function, it's just that they are.

If Microsoft changed their slogan to "The Only Software Company in The World", would journalists suddenly start worshiping them?

Europa Universalis III

I really enjoyed reading that - nice one. Setting your own goals sounds great.

Definitely going to pick up the demo, I tried EU2 but was pretty baffled - the lack of printed manual in my cheap budget copy didn't help either.

Go heading to Live Arcade?

Shrimp

11 years ago

The AI thing is that it is (or maybe was) bloody impossible to write a Go-playing AI, probably due to the vast number of board configurations compared to chess.

Someone's probably made a decent stab at it by now, but there'll never be the Go equivalent of Deep Blue, AFAIK

What is it that makes people think they can plug a mouse into a 360 and suddenly a game's user interface code will suddenly reprogram itself to use that instead of a pad?

Bioware forms handheld division

Shrimp

12 years ago

Not sure why a port to the DS implies a dumbed-down twitch-fest. Settlers appears to be exactly the same as the PC version, for example.

This guy in charge of the handheld stuff has come from a pen-and-paper RPG studio, so it should be fairly hardcore.

As for "one type of click", that's no obstacle at all. Tap for a default action, press and hold to bring up a radial menu around the stylus (as in Temple of Elemental Evil, NWN and PST). Job done.

Sweet, sweet Dwarf Fortress. I still haven't got to winter without quitting in despair at my inefficient fortress.

The best way to learn is to have the Wiki and official forums open while playing, and do some thorough research whenever the slightest whiff of a new concept turns up.

Is it Latin for "Dog Eat Dog"? Bit cumbersome for a title though, should have just used the english phrase.

Game sounds great to me though.

Wrongest review ever.

CH is fantastic - if you like Planetside, Tribes 2, Armored Core (but with a far far better mech builder), or just giant lovingly crafted robots in a persistent war, this game is for you.

Even just for the single player content 4/10 is too low.

Just don't expect lightning fast action - the pace is slow to give you more time to think about tactics.

They're certainly the most arrogant indie-media darlings in games today, I'll give you that.

Eurogamer's Summer of PC Plenty

IVAN (http://ivan.sourceforge.net/) should be on there.

More accessible than zAngband (but no character creation and less varied overall), and the dismemberment, materials and lighting features are all great.

I remember this one time where I used a scroll of change material on my armour to turn it into pork, I was that hungry. I ate pork chainmail til I was very ill indeed.

Gonna have to try Narbacular Drop (if not just for the awesome name alone), the man-faced deer thing, and the rest....

Check out the Narbacular Drop screenshots... looks like it beats Prey for portal weirdness

I haven't finished it because the bugger crashes after the opening cutscene (lock up with looping sounds, crash-fans) and no amount of faffing around with drivers, removing the soundcard, etc. will fix it.
