    Sad neither of them had played it, because "I wanted orange, but I got lemon-lime" was a big thing in the first Deus Ex, and could've been something they incorporated into the dish somehow.

    I think it's enough to be able to have meaningful discussions about the game (with some limitations, you may see the extent of the narrative, but maybe not the amount of options available at any give...

    GOG really doesn't seem to want you to get the store images from them, and they're really hard to get from the front page of their store, but slightly easier, at least in Firefox, if you go to their "...

    Wow, they combined the top-down levels from Contra III: The Alien Wars with Destiny. The only way to make this less appealing would be if they made the doctors you picked in the surgery thing someth...

    I haven't played either Ancestors or RDR2, nor really seen enough of them to speak for those, but I could definitely see this problem in how a lot of games handle physics, especially after Half-life ...
