It's a shame really... never been a fan of his play, but i do enjoy his casting skills a lot. He has both deep knowledge of the game and his delivery is clear and pleasant to the ear, something that very few sc2 casters can boast about.

If only they'd fix the mobile AA, cut their range or something... currently they can deny too big of an area and on some maps one mobile AA unit is capable of controlling the airspace above the majority of capture points while remaining in the same location.


Or give the aircraft some more efficient anti-armor weaponry. More specifically the attack jets - they are known as tank hunters for a reason, yet they rarely fulfil this role in the game.

I predict the return of Priests as the dominant force in the constructed ladder, as this outright nerfs not only OTK, but most aggro decks, which makes priest's turtle style and his own two-turn kill strategies that much more effective.

The gameplay is very intricate, but it does gets boring once you figure the game out :(

That's the side effects of information age, i'm afraid. The ones who control it, have the power over the real world.

The best RPGs on PCThe best RPGs on PC

Great list, although i feel that it is rather unfair to include the WHOLE Mass Effect franchise, while the other franchises are represented by only one game. And secondly, as much as i love M&B and Deus Ex, they are hardly RPGs. They are games with RPG elements, yes, but not RPGs.


And i will check out Anachronox this weekend, solely on your recommendation, Fraser! To test out your "cred" and level of nostalgic bias. :D

I really don't understand why people are saying the M&B is not a RPG. I have only played the original release but it gave me hours and hours of play. I still haven't finished playing it. Don't think I ever will. Every step of the way, you increase your skills (actual timing & strategy skills) and hone and define policies of a political/social nature. If by a RPG you mean a game like Oblivion/Witcher where you are cast into the role of a character player with a set task or outcome, then, yes, M&B lacks that original determinism - you can, however, create your own outcome and strive to achieve it. Do so, then start again as another character with a different set of goals. When I'm on horseback armed with my trusty lance and suffering horrible odds, I'm fully in my role and only my skill, quality of mount and chosen fighting companions can save my life. Good stuff.

Using Warcraft Heroes for a card game is hardly a new IP.

Takedown: Red Sabre Preview
Excessum Avatar

It's a shame, really... i wanted to pick this title up, but i guess i'm not "hardcore" enough to justify spending time and money on a broken product.


What were they thinking, anyway? The AI is one of, if not THE most important part of tactical co-op shooters. Did they really think people would overlook it? Or did they expect everyone to get hooked on the shallow deathmatch mode?


Nice post, Mr Dog Pants!

A badly broken game can still be a lot of fun though. I've been playing Tactical Intervention with my regular gaming buddies for a few weeks and it's so terrible that it's hilarious, which has an appeal all of its own. This could be the same - we enjoyed SWAT 4 partly for the tactical cooperation and partly for zapping your mates in the arse with a taser or shooting them in the balls with a bean bag round.

Ha - that's been on the list for a while. Pete's on a bug fixing mission right now - should be sorted fairly quickly.
