Templar Battleforce , a modern postretro release bringing the aesthetics and sophistication of the old school games to modern days. Sometimes, playing it, I feel like it is truly warped from the past. The developer, Trese Brothers , is a studio which is to be appreciated for the social, active and ...

I see your point, but you must consider another thing. BZ2 is a game. Many people actually have a very fine trait of having explorative mindset and taking the time they can spend on gaming according to their like is limited, they could also want to check out what other titles have to offer. Like wit...

Considering I only play PC games (When i have the time). I will typically wait a year or 2 before playing a game. Allows time for people to fix bugs etc.

That is another merit of patience.

Before actually sitting down and playing a Halo game I had a similar opinion of it to you. Forcing yourself past that particular hurdle is worthwhile. The first Halo is available secondhand, Halo 2 as well on PC CD, nonetheless perhaps Microsoft will eventually change the policy regarding Halo and ...

I see you love writing. To answer your question though: As I stated before 25 cents an hour is the max id be willing to pay for a base game. Usually this is based off of developer estimated play time, cost and the actual game type. So you should probably check the second option counting from the to...

I talk about onetime cost, to be understood, meaning absolute time spent on the game on part of the player can eventually be a lot bigger than the estimation predicts, just like one could read a book more than once, despite already knowing what is it about. This is honest playtime versus absolute pl...

I say ten Euro, meaning I pay one Euro for two hours honest playtime of singleplayer experience. I could be bargained to one and a half Euro for two hours honest playtime if extra meritoric quality is promised, which would make it fifteen Euro, even though that does feel like the game should provide...

It interests me what is your people say upon prices of games. If any of the poll options responds to your opinion, check it, if you want to make any other point, write in this thread. The currency employed is Euro [€]. By "honest play time" I mean how much time you spend on the gameplay co...

Very interesting analysis, ZeroAngel. Skimming through the first post I had an impression you are going in the direction of stating the game or the system is perfect only the players make problems or that the system would be perfect if not the participants who constantly come up with problems, which...

It was far before modern philosophy when thinkers stated most people live by unrational principles. It was Heraclitus who wrote that people are mostly confused and alieneted when confronted with formulated reason. It was Marcus Aurelius according to whom if a man turns to wisdom, in ten days one can...

Ded10c, I acknowledge your superiority in terms of gamingworld lore, albeit when it comes to Warhammer 40k , it is dark futurefantasy genre and by definition in my sets of categories fantasy and horror exclude one another peremptorily [huh, what a funny word I have found in the online dictionary]. H...

"the main theme of the series is military heroicism" is massively oversimplifying things. There's a fair dose of intrigue, a significant amount of politics and a constant cosmic horror undertone. One only has to glance briefly towards ONI, the structure of the Covenant and the nature of t...
