Yeahhhh... no

Looks on the surface kind of like the reboot games but then comes across as total cheaply made cheese. And while I love Nick Frost in comedies, that immediately said all I needed to know about the tone.

I honestly don't know which gameplay I'd like them to learn that I would find easiest to counter. I suspect I'd prefer to run and gun while they learn and then stealth when they don't, just so I don't end up facing a game full of stealthed enemies. Unfortunately I normally prefer to stealth when given the choice. I guess the whole point of the game is that kind of choice, but it leaves me feeling uncomfortable about trying it.

[edit] Reviews on Steam make it sound a very interesting experience, and the fact it unlearns each reset is a relief

I still can't believe they had us read Animal Farm in middle school! (I'm glad they did, but I wonder if they still do?)

Not sure, but I had to read Animal Farm and Fahrenheit 451 about the same age and I'm also very glad I did. Worthwhile lessons in both and they definitely stuck.

Ugh. Don't even link to The Sun. It's a far-right trashcan of a publication that will happily incite racism/sexism/whatever it feels like to shift units.

Read the Steam reviews. Not looking good.

Yeah I noticed that before I hit buy. I'll hang fire till it gets better.

Question for those in the know, because I'm too lazy to hunt around online; How does 2 interact with 1 if you own both? I seem to remember it being mentioned that 2 will effectively work like an expansion if you own the first, but that doesn't need the first.

[edit] Never mind, it was right there in the FAQ. Combined map! FAQ link

I stopped using Razer after three consecutive models of keyboard and mouse all developed faults in under a year and had to be RMA'd. Stuck it out as I was determined to enjoy them, but never could. The Corsair mouse I bought after has lasted a solid five years without so much as a squeak.

The second new single-player mode is the Challenge Mode. This mode presents the player with crazy and wild match situations, which have to be solved within a single turn with a set of pre-rolled dice. These challenges could be anything from sending a Thrall six-feet-under, pushing an ogre off the pitch, or scoring the most improbable touchdown of your Blood Bowl career.

I had considered making a mini game along these lines once. Seemed a good kind of mini puzzle game. Also a great way to understand the finer points of play and player skills.

Amazon; It must be an election year in Britain
(or are they appointed, birthright, knighted or some other such wizardry?)

We just had a hilarious mess of an election a few months back, so it's not that. And they're appointed by moistened bints lobbing scimitars.

Every time this list comes up I'm confused how there are still enough people who a) don't own Sims 4 and b) want Sims 4

Surely it hit saturation point a long time ago

Seems to me this is only available after the 10th... btw, Skaven confirmed (yeah, I know I am late for this, but I completely missed that some press leaked that info)

I will get this game just because of Skaven ^^

Are they confirmed for this (which I own) or the upcoming second part/sequel/whatever that's coming some time?

Washington-based U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly also pointed out that the commission was an advisory body that does not have legal authority to compel states to hand over the data

But still..

Ads in pm's is what made me stop using ICQ back in 2005

It's good to see big corps always fall for the same pits

I'd forgotten all about ICQ. I think I adopted early enough that I only had 5 digits in my ID too. Oh how we forget. Or at least I do...

Can we stop linking to sites that circumvent Ad Blocker?

I'd totally support this. I have had many articles I've not bothered reading because they insist I disable my blocker or whitelist them. Ironically one was about reducing adverts in TV programming
