Re: What games you've been playing?

H&D needs a sequel. Its inventory management and stealth aspects put it so far ahead of any other game in real small unit warfare.

In a lot of ways, it's a WW2 ARMA.

The Wilconson Conundrum doesn't tell us directly what happened to Chard - what it does do is lend credence to Henry's sequence of events. It's clear that Malcolm Thomas' version of the events regarding John Wilconson is simply incorrect according Wilconson's digiconsciousness. I say that, as the onl...

I guess the question becomes this - why does Darsie matter? She's just James' kid AFAIK.

It seems kind of counterintuitive that a singular human being would be the primary catalyst of all of this. Is it something she does? Maybe send the reactor into criticality?

Or is she actually 'special'?
