Rome 2 was quite controversial in the TW community at launch. It had Day 1 DLC (that's nasty) and a lot of things weren't fleshed out yet. It was the first game in which land and naval units could interact with each other in coastline battles. I once lost a battle because an enemy ship sailed through the land and took the town square and I didn't have any way to sink it :/

That and I don't really like how the armor system and fatigue system interact with each other. Makes some units basically unkillable under certain circumstances.

Here's Angry Joe's initial review on Rome 2.

I'll edit my initial post. I should say that the grand strategy map is a turn-based game, but the battles between armies and fleets are real-time strategy games. So they all contain both elements.

Of the five that I own, I'm believe that Shogun 2 and its expansion, Fall of the Samurai are functionally the best. Empire was never fully fleshed out and suffers from a number of bugs that are occasionally game-breaking. Napoleon is essentially a reskin and smoothed out version of Empire on a smaller campaign map. Rome 2 left a bad taste in my mouth after release although one of my friends say all of the kinks have been worked out. Attila is very good but I prefer shooting-based combat, whereas it is based in late Antiquity and so the bulk of most armies are melee infantry and cavalry. Also, Attila is a little faster paced than I like during the battles.

I've also heard good things about the Warhammer series but I don't have any of them so I can't speak knowledgeably on them.

My favorite so far was this guy at U of M going by "His Majesty/ Your Majesty".

Be creative! I'd like to see someone top that.

I loved the Rock-It Launcher and the Fat Man from Fallout 3.

Btw, I didn't realize this before, but evidently there's a shotgun version of the Fat Man that shoots 8 mini-nukes at once! Now I'm gonna have to download it again so I can blast super mutant giants with it.

For those wondering, this comes from the game, "They Are Billions".

Will part of the game be her getting stoned to death? Would make for good historical accuracy.

u/cnnwillblackmailyou can't shirk responsibility because he doesn't have any (at least, not in the realm of the .win communities). My authority is genuine because I've been entrusted by the admins with powers that I can exercise and make things happen on the site.

That being said, I won't ban you because being a weirdo and a dipshit is not a banable offense.

ONE game please, per what I wrote in the post.

Any game you want to discuss can be put forward. I'm inclined in the future to refrain from making these threads on future releases simply because such threads would be largely about speculation rather than about gameplay, because nobody would actually be playing it yet. However, I'm going to wait and see how things play out before making that judgement.

We're all about sub-wins for when we reach the appropriate amount of growth. Thing is, we're not there yet and we have to be realistic.

The idea is to have a focused discussion thread for whatever strategies, tactics, techniques, memories or whatever else might be in a game that is fairly commonly played among the community. Yes, everyone is different and there's so much available, which is part of the strength of the idea. We could do weekly threads, switching to a new game every week, from now till the end of time. It will generate content for the userbase to interact with, and that will attract new users.

I have nearly 2,000 hours in Empire: Total War, which is turn based on the campaign map.

XCOM & XCOM 2.

Shattered Union, although I can't figure out how to get Steam to let it work on a 64 bit computer.

Civil War: Generals 2.

It's the only ending that's coherent.

When the Kung Flu got loose, my particular factory was declared an 'essential business', so we could still go to work if we wanted. My job was far more difficult than it needed to be, so I got an engineer to come out of his office to design some new jigs and fixtures so I'd have an easier time assembling and welding the product. We were yelling at each other (because it was a loud factory environment) in close proximity for two hours. At the end, I wanted to shake his hand to thank him for his help developing ideas. He wouldn't do it.

I don't remember where I heard about it initially, but here's an article about it.

You need to get inception drunk. Drink IRL and then hop in a game and drink in the game. But whatever you're drinking IRL you have to drink in the game. New Vegas has a good selection of booze.

One of my favorite gaming memories was being drunk off my ass and playing Empire: Total War. I used to be big into their competitive scene. I was drunk, and my friend was high as a kite smoking some joints, and we still kicked the shit out of all comers because we were that good. It was cool.

The first three blow Andromeda out of the water. Last 10 minutes of 3 ruined all of it though. It was a very strange and unfulfilling ending, unless you believe in Indoctrination Theory, but I'm not going to ruin that for you.

Anyway, the Legendary Edition is going to have woke puritanism by editing down Miranda's sex appeal and other such things. Rather than buying it new, see if you can obtain used physical copies of the games as they will be unedited and therefor better and more original than whatever they're putting out today. I know hard copies exist at least for the first two.

Enjoy the games! Mass Effect is something I'd totally recommend to people.

This game is hilarious. Being a lunatic once, I thought I saw a nymph running through the bushes. So I fucked the bushes. Great game.

All official unit twitters are run by the unit's public affairs office. It's an active duty Marine, most likely.

Dishonorable discharges require a general court martial and is a felony. Being stupid on Twitter doesn't rise to that level. They should get a counseling though.

That's why both the prosecution and defense are part of the selection process, so they can push against each other and even it out.

My brother works in a plant near flint. Last I checked, Michigan is in the US.

A National Guard contract lasts 6 years and it takes several months to go through training. Just by timetables, I can tell you that all of them signed up at some point during either Trump's or Obama's administrations. Asking them to have a mutiny is a bit much. Many of them will walk out when their contracts are out.
