Kind of hilarious to see a video game player/reviewer go on about how he doesn't care about all the fantasy/themey "crap" from Avalon.

It's generally a common snub from the snootier table top folk that video game stuff is all stuck in "kid's themes and anime"...

Now we're going to find out Dan is really a Euro player and he's big into Agricola, Thurn and Taxis, and Caylus.

I've always tried to explain "eu" as pronouncing in in the very forward part of your mouth, but then again my Dutch is terrible.

Wow, I'm 40 and I can hear it.

Jeff and the gang have destroyed their ears, apparently.

OK, I check out at 16KHz... OK, that's pretty much par for the course, I guess.

You DO have to love the Christian Bale cameo at the end with him plugging the iPad... Oh wait.

I get the impression from this that the entire game occurs in the exact same 1 block area around a city square.

Final Fantasy: Market Night, We Close At 10PM.

@NiklasP: Why because High-Score games are bad? Yeah, no one ever liked games that are all about getting the highest score.

Well, to be fair... I never did. This goes all the way back to me not understanding why people liked Pacman when it was in the arcades.

Yeah, do not want.

Like MOBAs, for the most part. Like LOTR for the better part...

Do not like this.

Ah, yes... This appears to be a really bad idea.

I enjoyed Sins very much, and most of its mini-expansions, though some weighted the game in weird ways till later mini-expansions re-balanced things a bit.

If people are thinking of a game that was broken at launch, I suspect they're thinking of Sword of the Stars and its (STILL WAY BROKEN... Well, actually unfinished, but in retail) sequel.

Sins itself was always pretty rock solid.

I really started worrying for Jeff about 10 minutes into this, then realized he got past this sickness...

This practically defines the meaning of the word "feverish."
