BUt yeah, on a whole i have to thank you for making me re-discover gaming, an easy way to get games without ovewrpaying them and discover a lot of marvelous gems i wouldnt have known if i didnt follow your reccomendations.
Very true, and it's amusing that the huge games (more accurately, the publishers of huge games) are showing open contempt for the format they look (and usually play) best on thanks to money. I think the next few years will be interesting as the gap widens. It's a great time for small(er), underground and old games on the format. Which reminds me, I have a txt file full of things to try that I should get to.

Aw thanks man, always happy to evangelise about gaming; the best possible thing to hear is someone finding a game they never would have heard of and loving it.

What's putting you off?

King's Bounty is beautiful, funny and surprisingly deep - I can't recommend it enough. I played it though most of the marathon podcast while listening in.

Torchlight really hits that Diablo 'just one more room' note. I can lose hours without noticing after just going in to finish off a quest. I kinda want a dog in Diablo 3.
