    Decaywolf, I'd like to say that your attitude is unacceptably toxic. All you did was voice complaints based on your pet peeves instead of providing constructive criticism. If you want to know what...

  6. Re: Crash after epic end turn battle - how to deal with instability?

    I have some minor gripes with an otherwise gripping KH campaign.

    Erm, yes it's something that plagued TW titles since the beginning. A design limitation. Battle maps can't be infinite, so units are limited to a "square". That's not to say there couldn't exist...
  25. Re: Now that two DLCs are released, did they add any female Legendary Lords or units?
