I tried both Apex and Nova. Both paid versions are very similar but I found Nova to have a better UI. The menu on the home page had fewer items and it grouped widgets by app when adding one to the homepage (very useful when you have Zooper Widget and UCCW). I know the developer of Nova has other apps and has added… » 7/16/14 8:22am 7/16/14 8:22am

My only complaint of Double Dash was that heavy characters were practically unplayable because 1 hit basically did you in for the entire race. Other than that, I liked having 2 characters on a kart, the special items, being able to manage them well, and the kart options. » 7/14/14 9:37pm 7/14/14 9:37pm

I used this technique (not knowing what it was called) for a class final project in December. It involved finding some area to research on my own and perform my own analysis on it. It was a lot of work and I had no idea where to begin, so I just did a method of working for 35 min and then taking a break for 10… » 7/02/14 12:15pm 7/02/14 12:15pm

I just beat it the other day. I loved Origins and still prefer it but DA2 wasn't that bad. The environments feel empty and the dungeons are repeated. I liked the combat a lot more, I played a Warrior and it felt more powerful/exciting than just wagging my sword like in Origins. I liked the talent/specialization trees,… » 6/29/14 12:44pm 6/29/14 12:44pm

I hate this the most when lanes have to merge. I firmly believe that congestion could be cut down significantly if everyone agreed to let one car go ahead of them. Instead, you'll get 3+ people who try to quickly close the gap. Then you'll either get someone nice to let you in or one of the would-be-gap-closers… » 6/28/14 11:04am 6/28/14 11:04am

I'm surprised this was not mentioned. France had the superior numbers in the Franco-Prussian War and were capable of winning but the Germans were better trained and took advantage of the French mistakes. The fact that this defeat gave birth to the German Empire (in Versailles' Hall of Mirrors) was salt in the wound to… » 6/27/14 12:54pm 6/27/14 12:54pm

About $7.50. $4 for Mount & Blade: Warband (99% of my motivation was the Game of Thrones mod) and ~$2 for Castle Crashers+Battlebox Theater bundle (it was cheaper than the latter on its own). I'm waiting for Thief to be $10 and Dishonored GOTY to be cheaper (I have the base game, but it'll be cheaper than buying the… » 6/25/14 2:06pm 6/25/14 2:06pm

Kingdoms of Amalur had good combat. What I liked the most was there were "Fate cards" which unlocked bonuses depending upon how many points you had in the Strength, Magic, and Stealth trees. You didn't have to rush all your points to get one skill to keep pace with enemies, so you could distribute them however you… » 6/25/14 1:59pm 6/25/14 1:59pm
