Kickstarter: Codex

Wow. I'm usually terrifyingly frugal but this one just swept me off my feet after two evenings of reading articles and reviews, watching review videos and Let's Plays, etc. Picture the core conflict mechanics of a M:TG-style CCG, with the economy, [more]

Re: X-Com 2

John:
The game is tough. I'm a veteran gamer and, for what might be the first time on a turn based game, I am playing on the easy setting and came within one pip on the "doom counter" from losing. I think I might have turned the [more]

Re: Witcher 3

You are right in that this is a very fleshed out world. Apparently it is a long series of books.

Re: Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

Me too. Loved the original, bought TW2 ages ago but only just started it last year (simultaneously starting KotOR 2, probably a bad idea). Did the "preorder at full price to support the devs" thing for TW3 (exceedingly rare for me) but [more]

Re: Pillars of Eternity

The patch is supposed to reduce the number of combats but increase the difficulty so that there are less, more meaningful combats in Act III.

Ah, gotcha, makes sense. Just watched the video they posted yesterday talking about the [more]

Re: Pillars of Eternity

Combat was pretty easy there near the end.
