  1. Ancestors Legacy

    New F2P multiplayer RTS/RTT game with a Viking theme. Looks very similar to Total War: Arena. Official Gameplay Trailer: Official site: https://destructivecreations.pl/ancestors-legacy/ Steam page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/720380/Ancestors_Legacy_Multiplayer_Open_Beta/ I think it looks cool.
  2. Well, it's a setting I enjoy very much, and if they're taking inspiration from the fiction (as the video suggests) rather than just doing a Hollywood and throwing out everything interesting in the attempt to make things more 'realistic',* this could make for a great Total War game. The Total Warhammers have shown off how well Total War's design can mesh with fantastical elements, while the Shoguns show how well the series lends itself to a concentrated geographic area; while Three Kingdoms won't be able to take advantage of the drastic asymmetry of Warhammer, and China is far larger than Japan, the (presumable, judging by the trailer) ability to field heroes combined with a relatively concentrated area to battle over seem a promising match to me. Of course, it's also been a while since the last duff Total War, which suggests we may be due one. So, you know, probably worth paying close attention to early coverage rather than going out and preordering on a whim. *Fuck you very much, Troy
  3. Tiny Metal: aka Not Advance Wars

    Just seen this while browsing, must say quite tempted. http://www.tinymetal.com/ http://store.steampowered.com/app/751500/TINY_METAL/ One thing to be aware of, apparentlythe directoir Hiroaki Yura is accused of embezzling £750,000 from the Kickstarter campaign for the Project Phoenix to pay for the development of this game. Seem to be reviewing well on the Switch as well.
  4. Advance Wars By Web

    http://awbw.amarriner.com Oh no! My life!! Advance Wars, over web... The UI is a little rough around the edges, but it gets the job done. Anyone up for a game?
  5. What makes a game Grand Strategy?

    Hello, I'm interested in your opinion about this topic: http://progorion.com/blog/2017/06/15/computer-tycoon-is-a-business-simulation-or-a-grand-strategy-game/ What do you think, what makes a game to be a grand strategy? Do you need armies as a mandatory? Thanks for any feedback! Andris
  6. I'm only a few levels in but it does feel like the best AW style game yet for mobiles. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/id1008496061
  7. This is shaping up to be something special. Grand strategy masters Paradox, are finally delving into the sci-fi space with the release of Stellaris, out May 9th. Unlike traditional Paradox grand strategy, a game in Stellaris will feature 3 distinct phases of play; covering the early > mid/late > end game scenarios. Starting off with a single homeworld in one star system; a typical campaign begins like a traditional 4X game. Explore other systems; expand your borders and colonise other worlds; gather/exploit resources; conquer other races (or not!). Mid to late game; focus shifts towards traditional Paradox grand strategy as races and territory throughout the galaxy battle for supremacy. Conquer other races, create and shatter alliances, jostle for territory. Dominant race in the galaxy? The game doesn't end there. Experience end-game scenarios that dramatically shift the balance of power. Fallen empires far superior to yours offering judgment on your dangerous AI research; visitors from another galaxy; space-time rifts. Don't take your dominance for granted FEATURES PAUSABLE REAL-TIME STRATEGY WITH MULTIPLAYER SUPPORT In Stellaris, you can conquer the galaxy on your own, or contend with upwards of 32 players DYNAMIC WORLDS WITH A VAST NUMBER OF UNIQUE RANDOM SPECIES Design and name a custom species with the government and attributes you desire. Encounter countless different alien species, each with unique appearances, traits, and ethics EXPLORE VAST GALAXIES FULL OF MYSTERY AND WONDER Uncover the secrets of the galaxy - every time you play! expect the unexpected as your science ships explore new anomalies with branching storylines and surprising twists RESEARCH AND REVERSE-ENGINEER RARE TECHNOLOGIES The skills and personalities of your scientists will affect which technologies you can develop. Many technologies are unique and must be found or reverse-engineered from debris, wrecks or alien ruins... DEEP DIPLOMACY AND WARFARE Conquer the competition, or entice the alien empires to join your glorious federation. the mid-to-late game of stellaris features the same kind of depth and dynamism seen in games like Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings II BE WARY OF THE COST OF PROGRESS The expanses of the galaxy hold many dangers, as do your own advances at home... SCREENSHOTS VIDEOS Fantastic playthrough series with one of the lead developers...
  8. Renowned Explorers: International Society is a strategy adventure game set in the 19th century. Take command of a hand-picked group of diverse explorers and travel across the globe in search of legendary treasures while staying ahead of your rivals. Earn prestige in the Renowned Explorers International Society and become the world's most Renowned Explorer! Screenshots: Reviews from the Steam Store Page: I just got this last week and played it a couple of times, it's way more fun than I anticipated (to be fair, I had never heard of it before my first play). Anyone else got this? What are your thoughts, you got any advice, etc etc.? I play on easy and still sometimes lose, ugh
  9. By Counterplay Games Play Now | Steam Official Site | Wiki | Reddit | PC Gamer Primer Release Date: August 23, 2016 (Steam) ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS While it is still technically in open-beta the game will 'release' to version 1.0 on April 27. Now I'm not much of a card game connoisseur (I've only played Hearthstone for a couple of hours) but I do like strategy and this seems to offer it in spades! You choose a faction, place your cards on a grid where units can then move around freely, you outsmart your enemy for a bit and after a match you get currency to unlock new cards which then allow you to build a better deck and so on and so forth. You get the idea. Basically if you mix The Banner Saga with Hearthstone you'd end up with Duelyst... I think? Turns go by fast and while there's obviously some RNG involved the tutorial and matches against the AI haven't felt unfair (so far). Obviously I've not even scratched the surface here but have already won my first online game just now, hurray! So give this a try! It's free, looks gorgeous (seriously, how could you say no to those sprites?) and while I'd be the first to admit that a strategy game involving cards/deck building can feel a bit overwhelming, the short tutorial does a good job of establishing the basics and letting you then progress naturally. By the time you've had a few practice matches against the AI you're ready to go up against your first human opponent and take your first steps to world domination (add me to get rekt breh)! I'm curious to hear what the residential Hearthstone players make of this? How does it compare? Is it any good? Is it for casual plebs? Validate my enjoyment please.
  10. Halo Wars 2

    Holy crap, suprise announcement at GamesCom. Halo Wars 2 coming Christmas Holiday 2016. It's made by Creative Assembly of Total War fame, so hopefully should be good.
  11. XCOM 2 - War of the Chosen

    Developed by Firaxis Official Site | Reddit | Steam | PS4 | XB1 Release Date: February 5, 2016 - XB1/PS4 September 30, 2016 ABOUT COVERAGE IGN First: XCOM 2: Welcoming Our New Alien Overlords IMAGES VIDEOS
  12. Reddit has mounted a campaign to have Gabe Newell crowned Heat Magazine Hottest Hunk 2015. You can vote here: http://hunks.heatworld.com/ They've definitely noticed the votes because they just tweeted this: https://twitter.com/heatworld/status/577853398877364224 If you need any more convincing, watch this for several minutes and be converted: http://gaben.amigocraft.net/
  13. By Petroglyph Official Site Release Date: January 27th 2015 ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS Yup, that's the actual title! Only have done 3 campaign missions and so far this seems like the perfect marriage of casual and hardcore. You can hang back if you want to and take a beating, steadily build up your army and then full out attack or play it more competitive and go all macro keys on their asses. I never was one for RTS' like Starcraft but GG, while more in that direction, is very reminiscent of the old C&C/Red Alert games. They've taken a very back-to-basics approach here and it's great! So get on this people of the internet! I need someone to tell me what I'm doing wrong when I have to restart the 2nd mission after 20 minutes and then later do end up winning, but only after like 30-40 minutes... It's pretty relentless (for me anyway). Also, music by fucking Frank Klepacki!
  14. Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

    By Focus Home Interactive & Tindalos Interactive Official Site Release Date: TBA ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS - So uh yeah more Warhammer strategy games!
  15. By Wonderstruck Games Official Site Release Date: It's out! ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS Saw like 2 minutes of the GB Quick Look immediately started working on a thread. I was very much pleasantly surprised by what I saw. The stylized visuals and excellent soundtrack alone are enough to make me put this on my wishlist and combined with the super easy control scheme (you only need a mouse) this seems like a winner! Secret Santa, take note! (actually don't as the current price point is a bit too steep I find) I'm honestly a sucker for these types of visuals. Just love me some stylization! So much so that even Escape from Dead Island thing looks enticing to me
  16. So this is probably being announced today at PAX Firaxis famously no longer have access to the Alpha Centauri franchise, so this looks like a spiritual sequel. Let's hope they fixed the performance from Civ 5. And the multiplayer. And the AI.
  17. Hello rllmuk Gamers! Dani here, from R2Games. I wanted to let you guys know about our newest game, League of Angels, and the Committee has been kind enough to let me spread the word here. It’s a turn-based fantasy MMORPG/strategy game in which players embark on engaging quests, compete in massive PvP battles, and conquer challenging events and minigames – all with the aid of the mighty Angels. To celebrate the launch we’ve teamed up with great cosplayers to represent the Angels. Maridah did a beautiful job with her portrayal of Loralei, and more are soon to come! If you’d like to receive exclusive cosplay photos (and free gift codes!), just sign up to our League of Angels newsletter. To check out the game go to loa.r2games.com, and let me know what you think
  18. Here we go again Huge thanks to everyone who took part last year, especially those who saw it through to the end! The plan For those new to the idea, Moz provided a good summary in 2010: DISCLAIMER I don't want to make too many hard rules for this thread - there was a bit of conversation last year about whether you should record games bought for others, how you should record gaming gifts received, etc - so I'll just say record what you want, how you want. If you choose to leave out a bunch of items due to some random loopholes you can think of, that's your choice whether it results in you cheating yourself or not. My general rules for myself are that I don't record gifts bought for others because I'm mainly tracking my own self indulgence, and that gaming gifts received from others are recorded as £0. Also, I'm recording games bought with store credit as £0 purchases, and I'm recording games traded in for cash as minus figures. EDIT: also don't forget that if you buy XBL Marketplace funds, PlayStation Store credit, Steam credit etc, and then buy games with that credit, be careful not to double-count it! I tend to record the purchase of the store credit, and then when I buy something using the credit I record it as £0. Tracking spreadsheet I've cleared the old spreadsheet and saved it as a new one here - it's available to edit for anyone with the link, so let's all act responsibly Also, in line with Sprite Machine's comments at the start of last year, I haven't removed last year's spreadsheet, so it can still be viewed here for comparison purposes. Older threads: 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 As for my personal spending goals in 2014... well, I did think about getting a PS4 because I really reined in my spending last year; then again, I'm having second thoughts about that thanks to the PSN debacle. I may still get a cheap PS3 for Persona and Amplitude though Best of luck!
  19. The majority of Xbone and PS4 launch games are, as expected, a bit pants. People are finding that out today, the day before release, because Microsoft had put an embargo on reviews, making websites publish stories over a week and a bit . The classic argument is that this means that Microsoft get maximum exposure (managing page views over the week), but looking at the comments on the Eurogamer review for Ryse it's clear this has a side effect - people are committed to buying the game before the review comes out. The interaction between embargoes and pre-orders is putting a lot of power with the publisher. They can put out a limited edition or even just warn of shortages. They can prohibit websites from publishing reviews until a couple of days before release. Effectively, they can dupe people into buying a sub-par game just through hype, and getting them locked in early. No more. I'm not preordering anything, or even buying anything on launch unless I've seen numerous reviews - and in particular, reviews from sites I trust not to have just reviewed a game based on two hours' play in a controlled environment. I will get games a couple of weeks late, at best. I will be able to understand any issues with servers, log-ins, short single-player modes, saving bugs, and so on. I will quite possibly pay £10 less. I won't get a mountain of limited edition crap that's destined for the bin in two years anyway. Who's with me?
  20. Johan Andersson of DICE revealed something he has been working on with AMD, Mantle, a new low level API designed to give console-like programmer control to PC games. Currently exclusive to newer AMD graphics cards based on the same technology family as what is found in both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Potential #gamechanger to reduce the performance penalty for PC games coming from having to use DirectX or OpenGL. As Andersson says himself: Andersson also talked about the potential usefulness of Mantle for low latency VR and running entire game worlds on the GPU. While browsing Timothy Lottes blog, I came across something he posted several months ago, seems to be a common theme amongst the coding elites to want less abstraction and more control: http://timothylottes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/thinking-about-better-graphics-api.html
  21. As a counterpoint to the What games did you finish? thread, I thought keeping track of games you've bought might encourage you to finish those games before moving on or buying new ones. I'm sure it won't work as I am itching to buy Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, but my aim is to complete three for every new game I buy. My main problem at the moment comes in the form of PS+, Games for Gold, Monster Hunter and Animal Crossing. Free games, couple with huge time sinks with no real ending. That, and arcade games such as Tekken Tag Tournament, SFIV, DoA and my stack of arcade/score games make this a challenge. What are you planning to scratch off next, and what are you replacing it with? Current list: 3DS Ocarina of Time - ~70% complete Resi: Revelations - ~50% complete Super Mario 3D Land - Almost there, on world 7-3 (remix) Fire Emblem: Awakening - Hardly played it Wii U Runner 2 - ~50% complete Super Mario Bros U - Almost there, on final world Arkham City - New, sealed Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - Get to the single player credits at least Nintendo Land - Want to get golds on all stages Wii Super Mario Galaxy - On final boss, sod getting 120 stars. Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Unplayed Wind Waker - I got so lost playing this Sin & Punishment 2 - Unplayed Fire Emblem 360 Vanquish - ~50% Dead Rising 2 - Unplayed Assassin's Creed 2 - Unplayed Ghostbusters - ~85% complete Sonic & All-Stars Racing - ~65% complete Vita Jet Set Radio - ~50% complete Unit 13 - ~30% complete Uncharted - I'm not sure I have the time, but it's sat on my Vita looking at me GoW: Ghost of Sparta (PSP) - ~50% Katamari - ~80% complete Jesus. I best get my arse in gear. First, Ghostbusters. Then SMBU & SMG. Then Vanquish. Then I buy Pikmin 3. EDIT: Changed title
  22. Preface: We have a nonspecific MOBA thread, but it's impenetrable and a bit dead at the best of times. This is an attempt to get some Mukkers to try Dota 2, and help those looking to get into it to organise themselves and ask questions without fear of being scoffed at. “Why should I care about Dota 2? MOBAs are stupid/scary/impenetrable. The people that play them are weird, unlike us hypercool non-MOBA playing videogamers. Hurry up and Make Half Life 3. Hats are dumb, etc.” DOTA2 is the most popular game on Steam, and growing. It’s free to play, can be played on a fairly low-end PC, and looks lovely on a high-end PC. There are no (and will never be) any “pay to win” elements. It’s got a Cockney porcupine, a guy who can throw an entire ghost ship at people, and a barely disguised Dr Kleiner from Half Life 2 stomping around in a mechsuit summoning hordes of tiny robots to nip at the ankles of the enemy. It’s silly, funny, deadly serious, fun, frustrating and elating in equal measure, but most of all it’s rewarding to learn. It’s as much a team “sport” as it is a videogame. If you are avoiding giving it a go based on any preconceived ideas you may have, you're robbing yourself of a brilliant game. “Alright, alright. But why should I care? Valve should make Half Life 3. Beli3ve!” Dota 2 is a Valve game, through and through. Whilst it may at first seem far removed from any of their previous efforts, which it is, it’s also quite possibly their best game by some margin. The underlying game, the rules of which were defined in the original DOTA, was sculpted by years of experimentation and balance tweaks. Valve don’t mess with this, they simply add a triple-A sheen, a robust infrastructure and a brilliant business model. This is a solid gold chunk of game carved from millions of hours of player data over many years, balanced nearly to perfection, with a massive dollop of Valve flair on top. And just think, the more virtual crap you buy from the Dota 2 shop, the more development money Valve has to spend on Half Life 3 making new badges. “OK, I’m still here. So uhh, what is it?” “DOTA” stands for “Defense of the ancients”. Though "Dota 2" is simply Dota 2, probably for legal reasons. There are two teams of five players, starting at opposite sides of a map. Like most sports, the map/field/pitch layout never changes. Each team has a base, inside which is a structure called an ancient. You must defend this from attacks by the enemy team, whilst mounting your own attacks upon theirs. Whichever team destroys the opposing ancient first wins the game. That’s it. Not so complicated, right? There’s a bit more to it than that, but nothing you can’t pick up by bumbling through a couple of games. You control a single character (and occasionally pets or minions) so the game is much more akin to Diablo than Starcraft. You don't build bases or level up tech trees, you don't research stuff, you can't get a cultural victory. Moment to moment it's nothing but fast, deep, dirty combat and frantic "farming", i.e. grinding gold and XP as quickly as possible. The only way to win is to smash your enemy in the face until they fall down dead, or help the bloke standing next to you do it. There are 100+ characters (or “heroes”) to pick from when you start a match. Each has their own set of strengths, weaknesses and abilities. Different team compositions and match-ups grant the game an endless variety of possibilities and a depth of strategy that most games can only dream of. Think of it like a five-a-side match where you can pick any player from any club in the premier league for any position. And they've all got magical powers. Daunting, but exciting. Right? Unless you hate football, in which case think of it like a team-based multiplayer videogame with 100+ characters. Daunting, but exciting. Right? “So I need to learn 100 bloody characters before I can play the game?” No. Recently Valve has implemented what it calls the “limited heroes” pool. Essentially, they’ve taken 20 easy-to-learn heroes and created a game mode where you can only pick from these. As there are 10 players per round, it will not take too long for you to see each of these heroes in action. You could play 20 rounds as a different character each round if you like, or pick one you like the look of and stick with him/her/it. You can sit in this pool for as long as you like. Hell, you can sit in it forever if you wish. “Will everyone shout at me for not knowing what I’m doing?” Yes. But Valve has made efforts to match you with people in a similar situation. If you wind up in a game with people who have a few wins under their belt and feel like screaming at you instead of being helpful, they're the ones playing it wrong. There’s a mute button and a report button, both of which work wonders. The important thing to remember is that nobody really knows how to play the game in the early matchups, so concentrate on improving your own game. Take constructive advice from teammates, try your best to play with people you know rather than randoms, and try to experiment and have fun. People only see the number of wins you've got against your name (and only if you turn that on!) so don’t take losses too badly. You will lose your matches at least half of the time if the matchmaking works as intended. But if you can improve your own game in some way every match, you’re always winning. The matchmaking, despite Valve's best intentions, can often throw up some "interesting" oddities, so try to play with people you know and can communicate with whenever possible. “Who should I play as first? What’s a “lane”? What are the different roles? How do I buy items, which items should I buy? Can I Meepo? Why is everyone screaming in Russian? Can you recommend a long, complicated guide for me to read before I get stuck in?” Look, don’t worry about it. I’m not going to put any detailed guides, tips or suggestions in this OP. There are far better sources for that. Pick someone you like the look of, and if you decide you don’t like them, pick someone else next time. It really doesn't matter early on. Chances are everyone else is doing the same, though they might shout at you for daring not to pick a character which complements their own. But fuck ‘em, pick the guy with the sweet beard or the silly glasses or the funny name just for that reason. You have to start somewhere. If you want to take advice or ask for help from your teammates, go right ahead. The limited heroes pool offerings are: The game makes you run through a couple of dopey tutorials before you can play properly. These teach you how to move around, how to buy basic items, how to level up and how to use skills. When you get into a “proper” game, you’ll be expected to choose which items to buy and which skills to level up. This can seem extremely daunting, but there’s an app for that. You can actually pick a community created “build” from a list, which works like a template, telling you exactly which items to buy and skills to pick. Anyone can upvote or downvote these builds, so pick the highest rated build and use that. Some of them come with extra tooltip advice too, which is handy. Don’t worry about barrelling through guides just yet. That will come later. For a new player, even the best and simplest guides contain too much info to take in at once or put into practice. Instead, play with at least one person who can answer your questions, and don’t be afraid to ask! Think of it like Dark Souls. You need to learn through doing, through experience. To use my own brother as an example, he reluctantly agreed to play with me last weekend, and quickly found himself having fun. He asked plenty of questions as we played, and he was open to having his mistakes and his successes pointed out to him, and he took advice keenly. In just two or three games he had picked up enough of the game to finish with a respectable score and be an asset to his team, and most importantly he enjoyed it. And oh yes, everyone is screaming in Russian because it’s Dota 2. Welcome to Dota 2. Either learn Russian ("cyka" is "bitch", I think) or team up with friends to reduce the non-English speaking element from your team. There are however generic ways to communicate (there’s a chat wheel) so you can overcome the language barrier to some extent. “Doesn’t it take forever to get into? Don’t I have to play it for hundreds of hours before I’m any good? I don’t have time for that.” During your first game you will feel overwhelmed, there’s no way around that. But you can play as much or as little as you like. Once you've got the basics down, you can easily play a couple of games a week and still get something meaningful out of it. There's no overarching skill-levelling besides your own as a human being. Some of my most enjoyable games were very early victories when I had just begun to understand certain parts of the game. There is much enjoyment in that moment of understanding, however small it may be in the grand scheme of things. “OK, I’m ready to take the Dota 2 challenge. Gulp. Where do I start?” Well, first you need a Steam account, you probably already have one of those. Then you need Dota 2. Anyone can download it now: http://store.steampowered.com/app/570/ Do the first set of tutorials (you’re forced to) and then you can join the Rllmuk guild. Every member of the guild has the ability to add more members, so go ahead and ask in the thread. Someone will hook you up! It's a social guild, for finding people to play with and chatting. Nothing is expected of you, so don't be intimidated. “I’m still not sure, I need a final push” “I know you said no guides, but can you recommend a couple?” Alright: Dota 2 in 4 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akUNmFAzS98 Pyrion Flax guide to DOTA2 (funny) Dota 2 in 45 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzYNyDF_nDk 50 videos about how to play Dota 2, in no particular order: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvPMQjsM-jQ&list=SP24EB71B773DFB306 Comprehensive Dota 2 guide http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=123364976#19574 “I've heard I should play League Of Legends instead. Should I?” Allow me to refer you to this handy visual guide I found on google image search: So there you have it, conclusive proof that people who play LOL should be institutionalised. All 5 million of them. "What's the pro scene like? How do eSports work in Dota 2?" They work very well. The game is chock full of esports features, including the ability to connect to a "live" game (there's a short delay to avoid cheating) and choose between different commentators. Sometimes these games are free to connect to, and sometimes you have to buy a season pass to gain access. Viewers of these tournaments can often receive extra items for buying a season pass, and very rare items are sometimes awarded to a viewer at the end of a match. You can also connect your Steam account to your twitch account and watch the games via twitch instead, and receive the same benefits. The full length "free to play" documentary is available here: "Alright, wrap it up." Interested? Questions? Fire away! TLDR? Add me on Steam (below) and let me know if you're interested in Dota 2. Finally: Don't be like this idiot.
  23. This deserved its own topic I feel as it might have been brushed over in the others. So what was the one great feature that was being communicated outside of the one disaster. The family sharing right- but the way it worked was never clear- the wording around it was vague and no one was left certain which lead to loads of different interpretations of how it worked. Who was allowed to play what on your list of 10 and at what times? Still sounded obviously too good to be true and kind of counter to the idea that the DRM was obviously to control game revenue. That was the whole point. Why do that and then allow you to share your game in such a manner that it might dissuade 9 other sales? Especially when Sony who when they messed up with the PS3, offered for the LIMITED PSN library the ability to share with up to 5 people fully until this was taken away as publishers like Capcom were not happy with this freedom. Sure, maybe only two people were allowed to play at a time but for a console that allowed you to do this with ALL copies of games (not just digital) - it could potentially cut sales in half after the DRM measures were in place again to control revenue. A little more confusion came when Major Nelson in an interview with Angry Joe who said "Can we play multiplayer games at the same time?" Nelson replied "split screen sure" which made this bizarre single player/mp split come in. He uses the words "check it out" and I've heard "try" as well in other interviews, check here at around 03:51. "It's not like you're buying ONE copy for all TEN members" So the whole thing was a little fishy. Before E3 hit, Boozy's favourite leak source CBOAT on neo-gaf said the DRM measures were worse than they were letting on. Then of course the whole changes kicked in after the poor reception and Sony destroying them at E3, and they dropped it all. Including the family sharing. This led some people to believe that the backwards shortsighted idiots who didn't like the xbox one DRM suddenly had denied them the chance to buy one game on launch day for 4 quid each with their gaming cartels with 9/10 other friends. Boooooooooooo! Why gamers why? Why did you deny us the policy that completely contradicts the whole point of the DRM? Turns out there was potentially a reason why MS was being so vague, why Major Nelson said "you're not buying one copy for all ten members" because you're not. Words like "try" and "check it out". Because they're full game demos. If you're not the primary license holder, apparently you get limited access to the full games OF AN HOUR. Full game trials essentially. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=598291 That's why they took it out. Because they communicated it so badly people naively thought it was time they were going to get games for a tenth of the purchase price- at a time when Cliffy B is moaning that the current cost of dev games is struggling so the xbox one DRM was the answer- it obviously was if it didn't allow you to do that. Because it didn't. Anyway, what sneaky shady motherfuckers they are. Boozy, Simms whatever, neg button is there --------------------------------------> Thanks for listening!
  24. What God game to play?

    I dunno if I should put this in ATF but I always consider that place to be for unrelated to anything questions but I'll move it if this is wrong.. I love a bit of Sim City, Civ, Tropico and Settlers (before you have to go to war) and I've not had a remotely good enough PC for ages, I can just about play Civ IV with all sorts of stuff turned off on my P4. I now have an i5 laptop through work and was after a good god type game but not sure what to go for. I was quite tempted by Sim City 5 but the online stuff and small map aren't really what I'm looking for, I played a bit of Anno on the DS and that was good but not played a 'full' version on a PC so not sure if that might be the best bet. I generally prefer just the pottering about and expanding my towns, rather than the out and out war of the Total War games (although I do love a bit of Civ). What do you recommend, rllmuk?
