What are you playing?

Talk about the life consuming, celibacy inducing hobby that is all the rage these days.

I noticed the balance mod, which was a big part of the gamei hated where you become medieval Jesus when you get plate.

ANyone got any good RTS's still going strong?
Nope. If you want to go back and play the best there is, World in Conflict is the game you're looking for. There has been a couple of new higher profile releases, the best one is probably the new Homeworld, except it isn't in space. Despite that, I do like it a lot, finished it on the hardest difficulty - I'm not saying that to brag, it simply entertained me enough to raise up the difficulty and get challenged to add to the already good experience. The price is still unreasonable, 45 euros is simply way too much, wait for discount and you won't regret it.

Also, I completely forgot, Spellforce 3 got released. It looks good, I've played the free demo they had before launch and that one mission was pretty good, it really kinda plays like a mix between RTS and action RPG. So that would be my tip as well.

In a year or two, Iron Harvest will likely be a thing, so that's something to look forward to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ki ... on-harvest

Damn, I didn't even notice until I was playing the game and saw how it was spelled.

Don't tell me you actually pronounce it like that as well. It's closer to "hunger" than "hanger".

Four Horsemen in ass combat 5 is seriously bullshit. AC5 is kind of bullshit in general, with a garbage animu story. AC5 is unnecessarily long, gimmicky, cruel (no return lines) and has too many vestigial elements.

AC4 is almost like an arcade game and perfect in its simplicity. ACX is just AC4 with better gameplay and diverging story paths. I have no problem saying AC4 is practically a perfect game for what it tries to do. It's amazing they went directly from a ps1 game to AC4 and added all these extra mechanics that work perfectly. They work so perfectly that AC5 tried to change things and fucked up a lot of shit, like weapon loadouts and unlocking planes.

One of the most underrated PS2 games. As you said, story was but a layer to give context to missions and progression. Even against the later Ace Combat instalments, what it did with arcade flight and combat mechanics were just in the sweet spot and has seldom been challenged. Undoubtedly my favourite Ace Combat of the franchise.

Saw a stream of WH40K Inquisitor Martyr. Basic Diablo clone at heart but it has interesting leveling concepts.

Couldn't care any fucking less about RTSs in that setting, but it's nice to see it in other genres when it's half decent.

Tried to get back into divinity 2 original sin but Im starting to hate the game's faults again like with the first game.

Its almost like you need a guide next to you to play this game. You have a questlog sure but not a single indicator of that quests difficulty. And the problem with the dos games is that if you wander into an area with mobs 1 or 2 levels higher that means "you werent supposed to go here yet" and you get assraped.

Instead of playing the game Im just randomly trying to see which quest I can progress without encountering unbeatable mobs. Much dying and traveling all for nothing half the time, if you lose its not like I should attempt this battle again with different tactics, nope, it simply means you shouldnt have gone there yet....


And besides the main quests there are so many quests that dont give you enough info which turn it into guessing and seeing what the outcome will be or fucking googling the quest and then get it spoiled for you but thats the only way to know what to do or if you will get a positive or negative result.

No idea why this game gets praised so much its utter shit besides the combat system.
A motherfucking chainsaw, what?!
