Hottentot

Hottentot is regularly one of the most insightful, humorous and polite individuals on the forum. He also writes the best reviews and AARs of general games around, doing a great service to the community. An all around good guy and possessing a top-notch intellect, he is exactly the type of member that SubSim should celebrate. See below for examples.

While waiting for opportunity to write another AAR, I decided to amuse myself and you with another review. I'm a somewhat sucker for good game sales, and Miasmata happened to be heavily discounted on GOG not too long ago. Having played it a while now and thinking it might be something of interest for sim players, I was actually a little surprised to learn there was no thread about it yet. So here we go.

AAR (Serious)

The concept seems cool. The demo only had three survivors instead of the full game's five, but I already liked how their relationship with each other changes the gameplay. Though It feels a little exaggerated that they all pretty much hate each other: when you are one of the only survivors after the zombie apocalypse, you'd think it would be smart for a while to at least try working with the others and not hating them just because they happen to be, you know, women or black.

Sooo: time for another AAR then, finally! You've heard the story before: one that I have been meaning to start for ages already and only now found enough time and inspiration for it, as well as a rare moment in my life when I'm not distracted by anything else (*cough*reviews*cough*). In fact, the roots of this AAR go back to a post I wrote (http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...1&postcount=11) last year and which Oberon and Betonov then continued (and it was Betonov's post that started it in the first place). Therefore credit to where credit is due and thank you both for sparking the idea.

I posted quotes as per regulation, but you really need to read the threads in their entirety to appreciate this man's true genius.
