    Fallout 4 Eliminates Skills From Character System

    I'm kinda torn on this. On the one hand, I fear this will lead to a lot more numerical advantage perks, where perks have always been the interesting part of the game for me. Iconic perks like Bloody Mess, Mysterious Stranger, Grim Reapers Sprint, etc., will still (presumably) be around but...

    Please Understand, Nintendo is the Bad Guy

    Interesting read, though nothing will change without a huge overhaul on Google's end, and they have no interest in pissing off large corporations who contribute to their advertising sales. Give people the tools to be dicks and you can place a pretty safe bet that a reasonable percentage of...

    Real-Life FPS Puts Random Chatroulette Users in Control

    This looks like a whole bunch of shenanigans, he even nailed the gravelly protagonist voice. Prize has to go to the guy who says "Shoot the guy who's cleaning his car". Legitimately laughed at that.

    8 Awesome Voice Acting Performances in Videogames

    No Logan Cunningham of Bastion/Transistor fame? No Wayne June for his work on Darkest Dungeon? I suppose they're both in more of a narration role, which might make them ineligible in which case, fair enough. Can't argue with the rest of the list. Some stand out performances right there.

    I'm an American, how can I get my hands on British chocolate?

    If your looking for brand chocolate, then as many people have said Cadbury's is a safe bet. On the other hand, if your looking for chocolate bars then see if you can find Boosts, Double Deckers, KitKat Chunkies, Wispas or Aero (especially the mint ones). Yorkie is a solid choccy bar as well...

    WonderCon 2015 Cosplay Gallery Day One: Boatloads of Nope

    The old dear in the last one has a look on her face that says "My grand-daughter dressed me up like this and dragged me here." Maybe that's what they're going for (I'm unfamiliar with the property that's from) but in any case the entire lot are superb. Personal fave has to be the Garrus...

    Pillars of Eternity: your opinion so far?

    It's a nostalgia trip for sure, I cut my teeth on Black Isle and Obsidian's earlier works. Most of the above complaints are pretty valid though. Spellcasting is kinda full of very similar spells with aggressively short ranges, there's no aggro management (the theory is that once you or an enemy...

    Lionhead Tweets Old Fable 2 Artwork for National Cleavage Day, People Get Mad

    As a man who likes boobs I feel discriminated every time I look on twitter. The sheer hatred for my life choice to enjoy big, juicy jubblies makes me feel ashamed for my appreciation of the female form. One day the world will be open and inclusive enough for me to hold my head high, and with...

    Different Mars One Finalist: It Totally Isn't a Scam

    Any rebuttal that takes the form of a Youtube video titled "10 reasons x is y" sets off little alarm bells in my head. Most likely explanation? Mars 1 PR team needs someone on the inside to refute allegations made by another insider, finds 21 year old physics student, promise him place on...

    A Competitive DoTA 2 Match Lasted Over Three Hours

    Haven't watched it yet (trying to find 3 hours in my schedule) but I heard that ODPixel and Purge did a cracking job casting that monster. From what I hear it turned into a total buyback war, which can be a chore to watch, but the source engine is always good for causing the map to explode if...

    Recommend me a game like XCOM: Enemy Within or Heroes of Might & Magic III

    Banner Saga? Kinda like a medieval XCOM with a side order of Oregon Trail. Have a shufty on steam or youtube, see if it might be your thang. Someone already mentioned Xenonauts, thats very like XCOM though lower fidelity. Depends if that matters to you or not, still a cracking little game.

    Zero Punctuation: Dying Light - Yay, More Zombies

    Think the wide variety of accents are kinda weakly explained away by the outbreak occuring during the "Olympics" (think they refer to it as the World Games or something?), but less easily explained is the sudden and hilarious changes in accent. Swear one african gent was having a quick word with...

    All Female A-Force Replaces The Avengers

    Not the XX-Men then? Or should I say, the XX-Not-Men. I could go on, however I will spare you all that great indignity.

    All Female A-Force Replaces The Avengers

    I was wandering whether it might be Pepper. Thanks muchly for the info.

    All Female A-Force Replaces The Avengers

    I forsee literally no backlash or disgusted comments dripping with anger and irony coming from this decision. OT: Top left, is that Mrs. Iron Man (Iron Woman?). I ask in all seriousness, I'm not overly familiar with the Marvel Universe, and I have no idea who that is. Captcha: Market...
