Picked up the bundle on Steam the other day (I already owned Enemy Unknown on 360). Any tips on build queue etc? (Probably my weakest part, but I think it's really the most important). I've started a couple of Ironman campaigns, looking to go through on Classic. I've gotten a few missions in and had some things go pear shaped so I restart rather than delay the inevitable. I have a basic idea of where I want to build things and roughly what I want to build.

I don't have any real idea regarding gene mods or MECs

Having only played XCOM: Enemy Unknown and hearing about your soldier bleeding out in the last mission has given me goosebumps. I probably should pick up Enemy Within at some point.

Dragon Age 2

Total War: Rome II (getting better now though)

Assassin's Creed III

I have an Xbox One so yay I suppose. I'll eventually get a PS4 so I'm not fussed on exclusives either way. I've gone back and forth between preferred consoles over the years. Need to update/get a new PC and hook it up to my TV.

That said, I don't quite get the huge outrage. I thought people complained not that long ago that there weren't enough console exclusives. Now a game gets announced as an exclusive and everyone hates it. Smart by Microsoft depending on how much it cost them. Smart by Square Enix depending on how much they get and if it outweighs how much they may have made by having it on PS4.

Does exclusivity create a false sense of demand (as long as the game is good)?

The Banner Saga because I've got to play something.

Also Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

Do taxis not exist in the world you live in?

Is the plan that the guild/group will roll over into the main game? I'm not in the beta (I have a XONE) but am planning on getting the main game. No point me jumping into the group now but I figure we won't do this thread twice. This game seems kind of lesser if I'm not playing with others.

I kind of want to change this already, but I'll just go with gut instincts.

Red Dead Redemption

Viva Pinata

Fallout 3

Mass Effect 2

Gears of War

Also no Gears which is interesting in and of itself.

My biggest problem is time. I don't have the time to dedicate to hour long quick looks. I seldom see any. When I'm able to they're great. I've followed GB since, well, before Arrow Pointing Down when they were still with Rich back at Gamespot and doing the Hotspot so I'll always love the site and the crew. However for me, I visit the site daily but am mainly here for the podcast and now, Patrick's written features, the awesome video features they do. I like Alex's reviews but reviews seem pretty rare. I get that QL's give a better impression of a game. I don't even care about a 'review score', but I often find I'll check out a video on somewhere like Gametrailers simply because of the short length of the video review coupled with edited gameplay footage is easier for me to take in. Not that the 'review' is qualitatively better (and I still hate the decimal point scoring system) but a 10 minute review is easier to fit into a schedule than an hour long QL.
