    Tough one. I'll go with Dishonored, if only because I absolutely loved the art direction and setting they went with. Deus Ex: HR was a great game, don't get me wrong, but Dishonored just itches my ne...

    Good news for anyone who enjoyed FEZ! It has sold 1.000.000 (ONE MILLION) copies, as their website informs us in a very serious way. Well, we're not going to get anything from it but I hope it'll con...

    People say that sales don't matter for a variety of reasons. Damage control because a product they supported didn't sell well; their genuine opinion that sales do not, in fact, matter; to spite whate...

    Sang-froid has an interesting setting.

  • iHarlequin posted a message in the forum topic Would you consider DLC a mod?. on the Games Discussion board

    Eh, I guess. They're much more limited than mods, though, and are therefore worse (along with the fact that they're generally paid for, while mods aren't).

  • iHarlequin posted a message in the forum topic Worst gaming company?. on the Games Discussion board

    EA, if only because they broke my orderly Steam monopoly. I've forgone buying ME 3 (or the pack, as I wanted to) because it's only in their store and I don't like their fiendish DRM policies.
