    Warm, unless it's a super hot day or post exercise, then it might be cool. I used to love a hot shower but then realised I was just setting off the sweaty mess switch in my body and ruining all the g...

  • stantongrouse posted a message in the forum topic Which game have you played for the longest period of time?. on the General Discussion board

    It's hard to be sure, and assuming idle games don't count because who knows how many hours, days weeks months, years I've had Trimps running, but it must be close between Civ 4, Timesplitters 2 and Fa...

    @the_nubster: that, and it just highlights how many of the 'big' games of the year I just never get in the year they are released. I think I am still playing catch up on some of 2017s releases, espe...

    Having got this recently in a Humble Monthly, I can confirm, this is fun. I like the Rogue-lite elements, the random track builder isn't bad, I was worried for the tracks not feeling carefully constr...

    I don't think you have to get all of them, they tend to play very similarly and, having played 4 straight after 3 myself, it did feel very samey. I've played most of the way through all of them and t...

    @kingukitsune: Vandal Hearts has a intro that sounds a bit like your description and has a FFT look to the gameplay. There are some playthroughs on YouTube that might be a bit better at confirming if...
