Re: How to improve?

This is a good and needed thread. If there's anything you think I can do to pull the socks up, including the kind of articles you'd like to see, it'd be welcome - critique, ideas, what have you. As Kelsey did say, there's little we can do about the site design beyond pass on thoughts. My own persona...

Re: Adeptus and The Greater Good - Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Updates Ahoy

I'm guessing the Tyranids can't be far behind, but figure so as not to cannibalise the release of BFG: Leviathan on touch devices, it'll be a while yet. Perhaps Necrons after Tau?

Re: Review: TransOcean 2: Rivals

I still can't fathom a) how the skippering made it into the sequel and b) what maritime trading/business management fan put their hands up to warrant it being there in the first place.

Otherwise, a decent jaunt.

Re: A Melange of Spice and Strategy - Cryo's Dune

Thanks guys. Yeah, what a stunner of a game. I mean, I suppose you could get a similar vibe from a Lords of Midnight or some such, but I dunno...Dune was just perfect. And it isn't perfect. But it is. GoG, or get Microids on the case to fold it onto mobile - I'd love to have it on my phone - as they...

Re: Packer Big Lunch - Border War: Angola Raiders

Yeah, now I've a taste for it, let's see if I can't bungle an Israeli armoured spearhead. As we chatted elsewhere, I don't think I can speak to a game's quality beyond 'I like/understand/appreciate this' at the moment and defer to you, Dave Neumann, Kelsey and all the seasoned BG'ers out there. But ...

Re: Case in Point: The Demise of Manuals

You reckon there's a market for manuals via ebook? They could be updated as need be, feature better annotation than a bundled PDF etc.

Maybe this is already a thing. I dunno.

<t>A good read, Jim. Great stuff. Especially poignant that it's informed tutorial design and game flow. Maybe the oft-maligned and patronising 'now move the camera left and right...good!' wouldn't exist in the way it does if the paper manual was still a thing. <br/> <br/> When the disc itself is an ...

Re:

Big fan of Pandora. Still need to check out the DLC, but talk about a tiny studio tearing it up in the face of Blandy McBland, Beyond Earth. OT but heck: I have bought it as well but hadn't time to dig in yet. A reason may be I totally bounced of CIV:BE. After spending an unhealthy amount of time i...
