    Poll: Why do people like Halo so much?

    Because people have differing tastes and not everyone likes the same things as you? Personally, I'm primarily a PC gamer, but I've always thought the Halo series was pretty good. It doesn't deserve the ridiculous acclaim and 10/10 ratings that get piled onto it, but it doesn't deserve all the...

    What is your biggest gaming weakness?

    I'm terrible at most competitive online multiplayer. I've just never had an interest at practicing enough at one particular game in order to attain a decent level of skill at it. I'm much more of a singleplayer guy, with only occasional forays into multiplayer every now and then.

    Poll: Your preferred RPG "Archetype?"

    Usually a mage or other magic user with a heavy focus on raw damage potential. Bit of a glass cannon and doesn't really fare well in melee, but that's not too much of an issue if your enemy doesn't survive to make it that close. Magic users with access to summoning and/or healing spells are...

    Why are British people so down on Piers Morgan?

    He's a vile, arrogant, smarmy, self-important git that isn't nearly as clever as he thinks he is. Also this. If Jeremy Clarkson can come out of a situation looking like the lesser of two cunts, that should tell you something about Piers Morgan.

    Poll: Bioware's best franchise

    I'd definitely have to go with Mass Effect. I've not played the third game yet, but the first and second were both definite contenders for my Game of the Year of their respective release years. The gameplay was fun, the story was engaging and I found both the universe and most of the...

    Your favorite book/book series?

    Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, without a doubt. If A Song of Ice and Fire is half as good as I keep hearing it is, I'm sure that will be right up there too when I finally get around to reading it this summer.

    My games backlog is pretty bad. what about yours??

    Steam sales and procrastination do not mix well. That's to say nothing of the backlog of books I have sitting around waiting to be read as well (about 20+, at this point).

    I want to talk about Metal Gear Solid

    Snake Eater is my favourite, but the first MGS still has a special place in my heart too, being etched almost in its entirety into my memory from countless hours playing and replaying it when I was younger. My favourite character would definitely have to be Ocelot. The way he always seemed to...

    Games that you feel deserve a sequel

    I echo calls for a sequel to Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. There are very few RPGs out there with its unique sense of style and humour. Also, Homeworld 2. There have been a few space-based RTSs since, but it's still a woefully under-explored sub-genre, and none of the later attempts...

    I've got a hankering for a good PC RPG; can you recommend one?

    Vampire: The Bloodlines - Masquerade. It's a brilliant and oft-overlooked RPG with a great atmosphere and sense of humour. Definitely worth playing if you haven't already.

    The Political Compass test!

    Economic Left/Right: -6.50 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -8.00 Not surprising. I wouldn't consider myself quite as left-leaning economically though (more centre-left). I've taken the test before and I've always gotten the same result. Not particularly a fan of the Political Compass...

    Poll: Discworld!

    It's a tie between Rincewind, Vimes and Vetinari.

    Over the Shoulder shooting

    I prefer third-person for melee combat, but shooting is almost always better from a first-person perspective.

    Your most Memorable Strategy game Expirence

    ...and now I want to play Rome: Total War again. Bravo good sir, for a thoroughly enjoyable read.

    Games that make you lose track of time.

    Any good turn-based strategy game like the Civilization or Total War games. If I've nothing more important to do (and sometimes, even when I do), it's far too easy to spend the better part of a day conducting my campaign. I've had to stop sitting down to play such games any later than 8-9 PM or...
