    Advice on how to solve a hypothetical situation

    Whatever you decide to do: the universe doesn't care. Besides, why wonder about potential problems? You're not currently in a relationship / in love with another dude are you? So why put a brake on your life for problems that don't exist yet. If you do end up falling in love with that one...

    Press Release - Watch the Teaser Trailer for The Protagonist

    This looks like some student's project really.

    Zero Punctuation: Kingdom Come Deliverance

    Must say that I enjoy this game immensely, even though I really didn't think I would (it wasn't even on my radar, picked it up because a let's play made me interested). Always take Yahtzee's reviews with a grain of salt. I really don't agree with any remarks about story, it's excellent and...

    I don't understand why Let's Plays have become so popular - Can someone explain it?

    There's generally also too many games out there for someone to buy / actively play now. Adding to that, unlike "early gaming history", very few games put out demo's nowadays. So it's a useful way to figure out what you're gonna be spending money on as well.

    Squadron 42 gameplay footage

    I sorta skimmed through that footage. I guess it was ... okay? The general story content looked okayish, but not tremendously gripping. The space game looked OK but not crazy exciting, though I guess we haven't had one of those games for a long time, so it's welcome. The FPS looked mediocre...

    Knights of Sidonia manga (Season 2 Spoilers)

    If you're interested more in the worldbuilding elements you should probably read Blame! by Nihei. It's a much less accessible work than Knights though. Like it took me 4 tries before I finally got through the first few volumes, but after that I read through it like a train. With Knights of...

    Rumor: No Single-Player DLC Coming for Mass Effect: Andromeda

    I actually would have liked some qualitative DLC for this game. Also the citadel DLC was awesome. Actually, come to think of it, I can't say I was especially disappointed with any DLC in the whole original trilogy (excepting the at launch Javik thing). ME:A is the perfect example of negative...

    Bioware Says Anthem is "Science Fantasy" Like Star Wars, Not Hardcore Sci-Fi

    We haven't seen or heard much at all given that it's still pretty far away. The Bioware bashing is tiresome, judge a game based on the value when played and before that ask concrete questions regardless of brand name. So far for me: Pros: apparent level verticality, graphics, gameplay seen...

    are you going to buy mass effect andromeda?

    Yes. Previous ME games, even the third one's ending imo, did not really disappoint me. It's still one of my favourite game series. I'll judge the game based on my personal experience with it as I always did. This game was doomed to be hated by an internet subsection from the moment it was...

    Valve Changes Steam User Reviews Again, Removing Reviews on Unpaid Game Copies

    Although heavy handed, I can see some sense in this move. An important part of any user review is whether or not a user finds the game "worth" the full price. That opinion might change dramatically between someone who got the game for free or someone who had to pay for it.

    The Newest Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer is All About Exploration and Discovery

    Looks like a lot of fun, especially if they manage to improve the sidequests by a ton. Bioware was never very good at facial animations, so it's not a selling point for me. Previewers noted that only the protagonists faces felt off, so it's possible the chargen is complicating things. Which...

    Aliens! Planets! And something to intrigue Astronomers for the coming years.

    At least they can celebrate that their star system is named for a type of beer.

    Valve Wants to Bring Back Paid Mods

    Meanwhile the Steam Workshop is still absolute horseshit when it comes to managing your mods. Perhaps bring out an official mod manager that is actually good to go with it? The only place where paid mods can work or find a niche is in an MMORPG type game where they are highly regulated. Take...

    8 Mods that Were Better Than the Game

    Honestly, the only one that I can somewhat agree on is The Sith Lords Restoration project. It's pretty much required for KOTOR 2. But honestly, it's a mod that restores content, although super impressive, it doesn't really add tons of original content. The other ones I either can't comment on...

    Mass Effect Andromeda Will Have Witcher-Like Meaningful Side Quests

    As far as I'm concerned that's really good news. It's still to be awaited how well they'll pull it off though. Honestly, from the trailer, the "scanning" thing the main character was doing reminded me instantly off Geralt's witcher sense, so I'm not surprised to hear them say that officially...
