Re: Mount&Blade Warband Free Weekend

....yeah, not much more I can say about it at this point. Fantastic game with great mods! I even tried the multiplayer once and that was good fun.

Divinity Original Sin

From CAD:

Should you be playing Divinity: Original Sin?

Hell yeah you should.

I love turn-based tactics games. I love good sandbox RPGs. I love co-op. Divinity: Original Sin has all of these things. It's a CRPG of the

Batman: Arkham Origins

Well, I was having a lot of fun with it and was at something like 46% complete when I went to do the Firefly mission. IIRC that took me automatically through to the final mission and final fight. Game over.

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

Okay, I'm giving up on WINNING it. Clearing Pendor is nigh impossible. But as I searched online for clues I found out all sorts of interesting things I wish I had known earlier.

You can join a knighthood order and do quests for them. That'd [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

You win in the Prophesy of Pendor by defeating the other kingdoms (done), having friendly relations with the noldor (done), killing all independent armies (one left) and destroying all minor factions (one left).

I am so close, but finishing [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

I picked up the Crusader Kings II pack today for $16 at 80% off. It doesn't have all the DLC you suggested and has some you said to avoid but I think it is a good place to start. Your favourite DLC was on for 50% off. If I like the game I can pick [more]

Re: Steam History

So, digging up an old thread I thought I'd see what Steam's sales have done for Steam.

Without posting the details, because they aren't as crazy, I have spent more than $40 on only four games in the past three years. I'm sure my total spent [more]

OT - Kazim: GoT

Time to go completely OT:

I have one and only ONE Game of Thrones question. I ignore all conversation about the show in case I stumble upon a spoiler. I avoid everything. However...

I would love to know now that the season is over, [more]

Kaz,

Congratulations! While I'm not the Blizzard-aholic you are I have appreciated your insights and reviews. Even 10 years later I fondly remember our times as a group in Warcraft. I too remember (I think - I'm getting old) dinging 60 in [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

This is what scares the crap out of me with this game. It sounds awesome but the "just one more minute" would keep me constantly up way past my bedtime!

I will fold though, I know it now.

Wow! I thought keeping my subjects in line and getting vassals to join me in Mount & Blade was hard! Sounds like CK is M&B on steroids.

How is combat resolved? I thought it was more a game like Age of Empires where micromanagement [more]

Re: Global Bond Yields

The Japanese people are. I don't recall the percentage but it's huge. Most of Japan's debt is held by its citizenry. It's the only thing that makes it sustainable from what I've read.

CRYEngine on Steam

For $10 a month you get access to it. The crazy part about that though is on a quick glace it looks like it specifically said there are NO ROYALTIES IF YOU COMMERCIALIZE YOUR GAME. WTF?! Really? Say you take two years to make your game and then sell [more]

Re: Skyrim Mod - Requiem

You definitely need some sort of mod for Skyrim. I'm not sure that one tickles my fancy but vanilla is just so damn boring. I go into a dungeon with my warrior (can't even remember the terminology it has been so long since I played the game) and roll [more]
