Re: <t>The Weekender: Barbarian's Unite! Edition</t>

For more good tips on gaming with kids, there is a good thread about it over at statelyplay.com Regarding Fox Factory, I may give it a look. Pango has some good apps for young kids. I particularly like their sandbox building apps, which were great for my kids around age 4 or so. Yeah, Dave, Kelsey ...

Re:

I second the request for naming the splash title. I've had to ask a number of times because it wasn't apparent. I remember asking this once before and whoever from PT responded said "they found it amusing to see people guess in the comments." I'm glad at least someone was amused. Perhaps put the ti...

Re:

Did you guys change the Fort Sumter blurb? At one point it said something like "it has all the strategy and tension of Twilight Struggle..." and I remember thinking zoinks, no it doesn't. Change it where? Fort Sumter was just added to this list today. That quote is probably from something I wrote w...

Re:

I would love to read some of those but prices of paperbacks have gone thru the roof. I do have the Chandler one and wouldn't you know it, it's one of the cheapies. When I was putting this together I noticed many had Kindle versions which were even cheaper, if that helps. I know that's not for every...

Re:

Today I learned there are no good auto chess games for iOS. Every single one listed here is "$9.99 for a bag of gems" IAP crapware. Sad... Rain, if you're not actually going to try one, then try not to be too grumpy please. If the presence of any kind of IAP is your redline, then that's fine - I ca...

Re:

Been a PC wargamer for twenty five years and I have yet to play a human online in anything. I wonder if I am in the minority on this one? I suspect I am, however once I read in the article no single player I stopped and just glossed through the rest (well written article though). I doubt you're a m...

Re:

Not sure if Ultimate General: Civil War belongs on this list. I guess if you don't play a campaign it does. But the campaign seems to me more like the old Atari 2600 games where the more levels you play the more the game throws at you. Its seems your reward for sucess is to punish you for sucess. A...

Re: <t>We don't think we can wait till July for Thrustmaster's new F/A-18C Hornet Flight Stick</t>

Splunge. Originating from a Monty python, splunge is a way of saying that you have no worthy opinion and that an idea could or could not be good. It could also be a quick comeback if you do not have an answer for a question. Well, I don't play Sims or pretty much any first person game w/the excepti...

Can we presume this isn't happening anymore (cue gnashing of teeth)? All QG links to Nomad Games are dead but I can't find an announcement either anywhere...
Really? Interesting. I'll have to do some digging there...

Re:

I think it makes sense that they lock this thing down on their own flagship phones and get it right first. Remember the whole problem with android gaming is the sheer number of devices you have to code for. Prefer they just get it spot on for the google phones. Another reason to not buy Samsung tho...
