@Jim, thanks for the clarification. And I’m sure lots of folks appreciate those games being kept up a little longer when they don’t have very many reviews available to rate. I was able to complete the last step needed to explore the game by following the game, but it is helpful when there are plenty of reviews to go over.

@ Jen Moore, Typically we remove the old explorable set as soon as the new one is out. But now that the notifications are working, we’ll keep City of Remnants explorable… Giving more time for reviews to come in.

No, so far it hasn’t that I am aware. As soon as the new ones are up, the old ones are no longer explorable.

In the FAQ section on the Game Exploration Quest page, it says, “Some games, especially new or upcoming games, may not have user reviews or tips. By following the game, you will be notified when a new tip or review has been written for the game!”

Does that mean that if an explorable game for the week doesn’t have enough reviews and tips for a user to complete the exploration quest, that the game will remain explorable beyond the original stated date? Thanks!

The Pathfinder RPG system thought it was cool.

The cardgame should also be considered in the rules as the RPG too.

I was actually eyeing City of Remnants at a game store over the Christmas holidays, and it did look pretty intriguing. Unfortunately, for the purposes of exploration here, it needs some reviews, as others have pointed out already.

Would really love to check out City of Remenants, it’s one I really need to play before I buy though, or see a run through.

I love City of Remnants, but i’ve never gotten around to writing a review. Guess I’ll have to break it out again and try to get one done this week.

I’ll add this to the COR discussion page, as well, but if anyone is interested, there is an awesome and entertaining review of the game done by the guys at Shut Up and
Sit Down. It’s at http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/blog/post/review-city-remnants/. The game and the review are worth checking out.

Unless I fudge it and say I’ve played City of Remnants, I still need 3 reviews to rate before I complete the explorer site. The bad part is I need one more explored game to complete an explorer quest.

I love City of Remnants. It’s one of those games where after playing I don’t just have the “that was fun!” gaming afterglow, but I have the “I need to play more!” jones going as well.
