Re: Laptop Suggestions?

Yeah unless you're one of those guys who needs to have everything installed at once, the limitations of an SSD can be overstated. I have a 512GB SSD with 45 games + Office + a few bits and pieces installed, and am still only using three fifths of capacity. I don't usually like to have that many game...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I thought I liked Roguelikes but when I think about it, I haven't played that many. I will look into it ;)

Man, Darkest Dungeon is so good! I've played the first two hours about 8 times.

After that it gets really annoying. :D

Re: Laptop Suggestions?

You know what? You're right. I don't know where I got that idea.

Unless the game was saving/loading all the while, but that wouldn''t be the case here.

HDD it is, dusk. :oops:

Don't reorder them on my behalf! The results are in, the judges are going to have to abide by their decisions.... :lol:

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Haven't been playing much this week, but I'm finding Battle Brothers to be a bit overwhelming, in the same way as I found Darkest Dungeon to be overwhelming - too many people on your roster, too much gear and abilities to equip, too much 'meta' when reading up about tactics and strategy. I'm just pa...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Shoot! I didn't rank my list in order! FFVI would be in my top 3-5 games of all time. I've broken the system! What was the significance of the numbers? :shock: 1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2. Super Mario World 3. Roller Coaster Tycoon 4. StarCraft 5. Baldur’s Gate 6. Half-Life 7. Civi...

The specs of the ones you listed matched the recommended specs here to a T, so I was momentarily very impressed with you Clippa, thought you'd done a lot of research :|

Re: What's Out This Week?

Greedfall seems to be being received very well, some places comparing it to Good Bioware . This is the developer that released The Technomancer , and I saw a conversation last month on RPS comments (over a few separate weeks) where that game was compared to early Bioware. It’s not very well polishe...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

If I had to rank it, I never would’ve posted it cause I wouldn't be able to. What about ranking them by tier? So if you had eight games in God Tier, they would all receive the same weighting (the average of the eight, basically), 10 games in Tier 2 get the average score for that tier and so on... E...

Re: Laptop Suggestions?

Those choices returned by Clippa look pretty good! You should probably look at a couple of video reviews also - the Dell Inspiron there looks to have quite a tacky/spongy keyboard, for example. I have an HP that looks quite similar to the HP Pavilion there and it is very robust in comparison. One wo...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

It's not a bad top ten -they all left their indelible mark on gaming, that's for sure.

No, I mean with only 20 (21 now) people contributing, one new ranking will have a significant effect on the whole thing, meaning big leaps for certain games. I mean our overall sample is small, not yours.

You've seen a lot of the data now though, will you be able to do it impartially, or will you give more points to FF9 or MGS to try and bump it up? :D

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

For the purposes of transparency, I should say that I came up with this category when I was messing around and noticed Dead Space got a high score on this metric. So if I sound a bit odd up there when I tell people to go and play RE: Remake or Saturn Bomberman, what I actually mean is Go play Dead S...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Yes, sorry, I should have mentioned that. Games that got one single vote were excluded on purpose - they basically fall into the category of, 'That's just your opinion, man.' 440 games got one vote. Some of the highest ranked one votes were Out of the Park Baseball, Championship Manager Season 01/02...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Today's chart is an interesting one - it consists of games that received very few votes, but those votes were extremely high up in the rankings they appeared in (an average of top 7), meaning those voters felt very passionate about them. So if you see something here that you haven't tried and you th...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Of the Rankers, only duskvstweak had it on his list, at #18. At the end of the day, it's a pretty small sample size for Ranked, at least, though the FF rankings are borne out in the larger poll. The only conclusion I can draw is that the C&R Final Fantasy community consists of some real loose cannon...

Re: Videogame Deals

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is EUR 11.99 on PSN, possibly the lowest it's been. XCOM2 (which is required) was a PS+ game so maybe worth looking into. The collected edition containing both is still EUR 89.99 :lol: I'm conflicted myself, my PS+ runs out in November, so I'd have to play both before then...
