  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post SimCity-Inspired Cities: Skylines Dev "Surprised" By Big Sales, Teases Expansion.

    More and more, devs are understanding that putting content into the hands of their users (through modding) is a great way to give a game value and longevity. Depending on the nature of those tools, ...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post The Point - Destiny: The Hardcore Gamer's Slot Machine.

    I determined that Destiny was not a game for me during the open beta. But has anyone else tried a game called "AdVenture Capitalist" -- it's less a game, and more of a skinner box for people. It fe...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post iPhone 6+ and Other Big Phones Won't Fit Fallout 4 Special Edition Pip-Boy.

    @deathstream: True. But I've always been careful about pocket size on clothing I purchase, because even before I owned a smart phone, I'd have the bad habit of overstuffing my wallet. It's the curse...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post What's the First Game You Bought With Your Own Money? - GameSpot Q&A.

    @hystavito: Actually, it was primarily in interpretive BASIC. Occasionally you'd see things like 'poke' commands to write directly to memory, and those were sometimes taking the place of machine code...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post What's the First Game You Bought With Your Own Money? - GameSpot Q&A.

    Back before the PC, I bought my own little chess computer. I think it was something like Sargon. This was probably back in 1979 or so. I got so mad because my mom (who taught guitar and voice and so o...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post Master of Orion Returns to Expand the 4X Genre.

    @Stonedwolfed: That's the type of thing that PC-owners hate, because quite often the devs will cripple the PC UI for the sake of having the same UI as on the console. I can't tell you how many games ...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post E3 2015: In Fallout 4, You Can't Kill Your Dog.

    @infinitexx: One of the first mods I created for Fallout 3 was one called "Brave Dogmeat" -- it was this tiny tweak that changed your dog from being reckless to being brave, since Dogmeat had this rea...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post iPhone 6+ and Other Big Phones Won't Fit Fallout 4 Special Edition Pip-Boy.

    @tarp_master: Eye Strain -- Personally, I have a separate device for reading (a Kindle). But for those who use their phones for things other than making phone calls, especially older users (like me) a...

  • GrahamZ posted a message on the post Governor at Heart of Video Game Controversy Running for President.

    @bubba_1988I think that most people, would acclimate to it pretty quickly. Yes, there'd be some confusion for a while, and yes, there may even be people who would try to take advantage of that confus...

  • GrahamZ rated Worlds of Magic a score of 8.
  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Get a new pc or iPad?. on the Games Discussion board

    @KHAndAnime: Agreed. Ipads really are overpriced toys -- I actually owned an older model until it broke down recently. When it did, i said 'oh well' and decided it wasn't worth replacing. It's jus...

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Early Access, Good or Bad?. on the Games Discussion board

    I voted that Early Access is awesome, but that requires an explanation. EA won't be awesome for EVERY person.People who are not willing to play a buggy game and contribute to the games development by ...

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Is It Acceptable To Expect Gamers To Wait 7 Years For A Game?. on the Games Discussion board

    Actually, you are the one who's not getting it, that your question is not phrased properly. But ok, I'll answer your literal question.'is it acceptable to make people wait 7 years?' If that's what ...

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Is It Acceptable To Expect Gamers To Wait 7 Years For A Game?. on the Games Discussion board

    @moinsyyed: As I said, it's a dumb question -- no one waits 7 years for a game. You might as well ask if people like it when Unicorns pee on their lawn. I'd give the same answer. What happens sometime...

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic What are you currently playing?. on the Games Discussion board

    Worlds of Magic (it's in beta/early access).

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Is It Acceptable To Expect Gamers To Wait 7 Years For A Game?. on the Games Discussion board

    No one is actually 'waiting'. What you are doing is getting on with your life. Which is what you should be doing anyway. You have no control over when a game comes out, so just let it go. In any ...

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Why you should not pre-order your games. on the Games Discussion board

    Unless you've seen a Let's Play, and/or tried it at a friends house, buying a game is a risk. It doesn't matter if it's out 6 months from now, or it's been out for 6 years and has tons of reviews an...

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Can a game be too big?. on the Games Discussion board

    It depends on the kind of game. I love the Elder Scrolls games and the Fallout games because of their size, and the fact that there's so much open space there to get lost in. Plus they give lots of op...

  • GrahamZ posted a message in the forum topic Any older gamers out there?. on the Games Discussion board

    @Celtic_34: I think that GTA is like most things in that it's probably harmless in small doses and for reasonably well-adjusted people. I wouldn't want a young kid of mine, and certainly of any of my...
