Holy crap, thank you guys. I'm sorry for disappearing, ended up being stolen away and have been couch surfing the last week. I'm going to be bookmarking this post for when I actually have a computer to play on next week! :3

What are some good games that encourage the player to take real life notes?
I suppose I might also add "Use the manual as reference material"
Good example is the Ultima series which requires that the player know how to use the map and find coordonates, as well as use the manual to cast any magic at all (proper regents etc). I really do feel immersed into those games when I play them because they ask that of me.
I also really enjoyed Freelancer for similar reasons, taking down notes of what resources bought and sold for at different stations. I got bored of it after a bit, but it was a fun detour in the game to go down.
Fez is obviously one, but there was basically a whole bombcast about that. I don't mind older game recommendations, but if there is any newer games that have a similar demand incorporated then I'd love to hear it.
Oh, right. Now I remember why I've been coming to this website less and less.
I really love the site, the community...just damn.
Would be nice to say "Our friends over at Giantbomb spent some time with the Vita, here are the highlights." I haven't looked at the offending footage, but this feels like the bullshit on tumblr where people post comics by other people and remove the watermark and give no credit meaning no one ever finds the person that made the content they enjoy.
@Asrahn: I guess Blizzard have put more resources into the StarCraft multiplayer than their fiction.
This, and there's nothing wrong with it for me.
As for 40k, I love the fiction, and goddamn love the Tyrannids. I know this is going to sound crazy, but I actually have an easier time with the rationality of certain things in the 40k universe, whereas with SC I get taken aback at how limited everything is. Overall, space marines (sc) are a watered down version of Space Marines... (40k) and I think anyone can draw about a dozen different crossovers. As games though? I find starcraft to be more fun.
No matter what, the races of 40k are fleshed out better, make more sense (I don't want to go into it, but I've had hours of discussion about this), and really draw far more shades of color and emotion than starcraft ever will. Now, when it comes down "drawing on more personal relationships than 40k", you simply aren't very familiar with the 40k universe....
@Branthog: Whoa, I think we have the exact same community of friends o,O
I have two people in common with her
Oh, never mind now i get the connection, I thought the first quote was from the music industry, but now i realize it isnt. I still doubt, perhaps in my ignorance, that the government would shut down a site without beleving they can back it up in court.
We're talking about a government that has shut down businesses, steals property as "evidence", and then never presses charges. Even if they can't completely back up their claims, they can still basically dismantle and destroy everything.
