brains...

Brainnnnnnnns?  Stubbs the Zombie.  My father in law wants me dead, trying to relate to people ends up in blood and screaming, I shamble when walking after 4 hours straight in a gaming session, women avoid me like death itself, dogs bark at me (might be that I'm a cat but I prefer to blame my victimhood status), I stink, and I wear my favorite clothes ragged.

Who is the most relatable character in a game you’ve played, and why?

I identify most strongly with "Ship" from "Asteroids".  Ship's fate is what awaits us all. Ship's death is inevitable. It can only be postponed for a time, and it gets harder and harder to do so. In the end there are no answers, just blackness and a sudden cessation of sound...

Well, if only Clint Eastwood could make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2, it would be him. Id love nothing better than to administer a little correction to some bad guys with a nice piece of hickory.

Anyone else notice that when he tossed the nice piece of hickory down, it landed square on the guy's junk?  No?  Hmmm, guess I was just staring at the guy's junk when he tossed it.  I mean I WASN'T staring at the guys junk!

The question for March is...

What do you like most about playing war games?

Almost all (that is 98%) war games are just a game that is in the war theme and so for these, nothing extra over other games.

For the very rare war games (about 2%) that actually try and be a simulation, then I love to learn how it was at the time as well as see what-ifs on different decisions and tactics.

Out of interest, which games would you put in that 2%?

For Mac: Combat Mission series, ARMA (experimental, may never be released for Mac)
For Windows: War in the Pacific AE, War in the East, Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations, Panther Games, DCS sims, Red Orchestra 2, and a few others I have not tried because no Mac version and rebooting to Windows sucks.

Sadly, not a single WWII naval sim (not a campaign)

This captures my feelings as well perfectly. I especially love the lamentations part. I just really love that so much.

One for the iOS/mobile gamers:

What do you look for when playing games while travelling?

e.g. Frequent autosaves, stable tilt controls, endless distraction…

Endless replayability and the ability to pick it up and put it down whenever I want (i.e. no games that only have checkpoints where I can lose my progress because I have to go somewhere). My two most played games on the go are probably Civ 5 and Infinity Blade.
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

The only games I play mobile are hidden object games, nothing you'd be likely to port Miss Ellie.  But still, because coffee, I'll tell you.  What I want in a travel game is immersion, and that is really a subjective thing and comes from the user not the app.  A game that is immersive takes me out of the airport and into the theatre of my mind.  I guess this fits into the category of "endless distraction".

On the go I need a game I can pick up and put down instantly. That usually means a game where I can grasp the current situation and my immediate goals by glancing at a single screen. I also like there to be frequent progress, no matter how incremental. That takes the sting out of having a hot streak interrupted.

Sadly I spend a fair bit of money on mobile adventure games and RPGs, due to an appreciation for those genres. But I almost never get around to playing them. Instead, it tends to be color matching, tower defence, and Words with Friends. Also "adventure-lite" (Gorogoa, The Room series) but Thimbleweed Park and Baldur's Gate 2 are just sitting there, unplayed.

Good, solid ports that run well on a base MBP and are easy on the battery life. Hint, hint.

Since this one is about iOS/mobile I think youll need to wait for one of the awesome upcoming ARM MacBooks weve been discussing elsewhere for that sweet battery life. Good solid ports are a given from Feral. ;-)
