Last year I found out there's native Linux version of the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Editions. They are working well but I don't think I'll ever finish a playthrough again. Back then I finished original BG, and BG2, but not the Throne of Bhaal expansion. Damn long games.
Enhanced Edition makes it possible to play this classic DnD based crpg on modern steel, fixes bugs, changes some rules, adds new NPCs with quests, new items, two new expansions (The Black Pits - arena fight generator?, and Siege of Dragonspear - which is a module for the original story, taking part between BG1 and BG2). It seems okay all in all.

There is a new Total War game coming out but it's another Warhammer expansion.... I kind of expected this, they always said it was going to be a trilogy. At least now we will go back to normal once this is done.

So far this next game looks like it will have a pseudo Russian/Polish faction and some weird demon faction. Apparently it will have a Pseudo Chinese faction as well. I'll pirate it when it comes out but I don't expect much, it's just more of the same.

So is it a new game or an expansion?

How can it be partially standalone. It either can be run by itself, or need to be installed on top of an already installed program. How can be both? Or is there a third option which doesn't excludes the others, or at least the first one?

Bernd 02/10/2021 (Wed) 19:00:38 [Preview] No.42532 del
You mean Warhammer III?
The pseudo russians and pseudo chinese were part of the lore btw.

They made first and second warhammer to work as standalone games but if you own both of them you can play on a big campaing map and have all the factions from both games. I guess their plan is to do the same with the third one.

Well they did Three Kingdoms in the meantime.

I don't care about the lore, Warhammer is stupid and for nerds. But anyway, apparently the Pseudo Chinese faction is going to be largely original to this game, because apparently whilst they did exist in the lore they did not actually have an army in the warhammer table top thingy so most of their units are going to be made for Warhammer Total War(but by the Warhammer design team).

Adding back to this

>I actually liked it more than Teken because of how fluid the combat is.
I noticed that too. I like playing DOA a lot more for that

>Isn't there a 6 now? I don't really keep up with it.
Yes, but it is really bad compared to 5.

>Well, it's the 5th iteration. After skinning that many fur from one fox it bound to be lesser quality

5th DOA was the last good one. Koei/Tecmo got really greedy with the DLC in DOA 6 and charge 1000s of dollars for DLC that should have been included on the game disc itself.

Another thing about the game is how realistic it is compared to other fightan games. If you're fighting in the snow, the person you're playing as gets covered in snow in different parts of their body. If it's wet around a stage, their clothes get wet. Same for places that are dirty, muddy or dusty. I don't think other fighting games have that level of detail.

There's also a few guest characters from King of Fighters and Virtua Fighter included in the full game. It's between this game and DOA 3 that are the best one in the series imo.

I'm playing Imperator Rome again. There was a new update that changed a lot.

The biggest change is the removal of standing armies as standard, now you start with levies which are based on the integrated population of a governor's province. To get a standing army you have to unlock the legion law which I have not done yet(as barbarian you have to reform first and that is what I am playing as right now). There are still mercenaries though. They also made it so when you capture a province capital the rest of the province auto captures itself like with forts.

So now Mercenaries are overpowered. Also you have to have the population of a province integrated which can cause some issues. Though it has not bothered me as I use mercenaries mainly, but as a Spanish tribe I defeated Carthage simply because they couldn't raise much against me in Spain. Partly due to that but also due to my mercenaries and the new province capture system I am rapidly expanding with not much difficulty.

They have also changed how senates work, instead of the old system where the senate would approve an action based on what the action was and what the party was and how your relation is with them now it's just a senate approval percentage and if you are below 60% then they dislike any action you take, this is annoying on it's own but added to that it is to impossible to have every faction like you. The non ruling party approval will decay and there is very little you can do about it, even what you can do will not actually stop it. It's ruined senate based governments now. Oh apart from governments with a co consul as in that case two parties can have a ruler so the approval only decays in one party.

There was a huge rework to the UI which makes everything weird and annoying to get used to again, I wish they would not have done that.

Bernd 02/20/2021 (Sat) 14:17:13 [Preview] No.42685 del
I forgot to mention.

The other part of why I am doing so well is because they now limited forts per province so most nations only have one or maybe two. Sure I don't like not being able to fortify my borders but the wars don't take long to win now and all they can do is sack the border regions which don't matter because the border populations often are not integrated and thus don't contribute much to the levy anyway.

I think this was one Parajew game that did not run on Wine. Maybe with new updates both in game and in Wine fixed this.

This update has been said to be a great leap or a watershed moment in turning Imperator into a serious game. What a shame, yet not too surprising.

Use windows like a normal person, weirdo.

If this is the best they can do I don't have much hope for them...

Now I am playing Space Engineers, I have not got to space yet and much of the game can be frustrating like the fact that I can't get pirate drones to attack me no matter what I do, they just never spawn, it feels like it lacks content(but then it is still being added to), the world is too large and empty and the speed limit is capped at 100 metres per second so exploring can be a huge pain and also that it can be incredibly grindy. Overall it is a good game I think though.

Also I played Stronghold Warlords, it was bad. The End.

>Space Engineers
I wanted to check that out when I was fiddling with Kerbal Spass Program.
>Stronghold Warlords
What's that about?

Bernd 03/22/2021 (Mon) 03:46:41 [Preview] No.43058 del
I have not tried than game yet, I'm kind of curious and want to but at the same time it feels like a huge investment and the premise revolving simply around building a rocket to fly to space might not be enough to warrant such investment in all the mechanics that I would have to learn to play the game.

I mentioned Warlords in the last thread and you responded... Anyway it was kind of like I thought it would be but worse. The Graphics and engine are really bad, it feels like they are just building on a 20 year old engine and not trying to innovate at all. In many ways it is a step back from Stronghold 2 even with what is probably the same engine.

Really? Didn't leave me with a great impression then.
Duckduckwent and found endless screenshots of pagodas. Is the game East Asia centric?

more liek retexed, amirite
What else to "remaster" anyway? Will it include the barbarian invasion dlc?
Heh I know one aspect. The control is kinda awkward in the base game, but the dlc added a new way and made it convenient. They should implement that controls.

Bernd 03/26/2021 (Fri) 07:41:23 [Preview] No.43102 del
Yes, the DLC is included as well as some new factions(new as in able to play, they were locked before). As for the controls they are being fixed too. There isn't much else out about it, it was sudden and came out of nowhere. Oh, it will also have mod support on steam.

Started playing the 1st animal crossing. It good. Game has a really cozy feel to it. If you played the newer games, you'll find this one a little hollow though

Animal crossing reminds me a lot of Chulip for some reason. It has many of the same sounds and effects for some reason. Maybe the developers of each game were friends with each other. Who knows?

There are two Warthunder April fools events this year, they are not that great and were not really worth updating the game for.

Also, on the 8th of April Enlisted is coming out of Closed Beta and into Open Beta. Enlisted is a game by the same company but instead of vehicle warfare it features infantry though you can use vehicles but only in first person I think which I like the idea of. It's going to be section based, soldiers within he section have roles which can be upgraded as can their equipment and in some game modes the whole section is part of the game as AI.

I'm not sure about it, one of the things that worries me is the monetisation and progression system that it will have. It will apparently be tied to a battle pass system which is quite bad for that kind of thing, I guess I will just have to see how tied to that it is. It doesn't seem to have nations in the way that Warthunder does either, rather it has factions in campaigns, so to begin with there is a Moscow and Normandy campaign and they have listed a Tunis and Berlin campaign to come. So how will that work? Is it going to be a whole new tree for each faction in each campaign? That could be a huge pain particularly if that is on top of a battle pass based system of progression.

Bernd 04/10/2021 (Sat) 08:45:26 [Preview] No.43267 del
I tried Enlisted. It's okay but not great. I don't think I will play it much and I don't see it having much longevity, the progression system is fairly bad and linked to campaigns(they Have Moscow and Normandy right now). This means that you are locked into one region and even if you get max level as Germany in that campaign it does not carry over to any other campaign, I'm not grinding Germany 4 damn times(they have 4 campaigns set and all 4 feature Germany). This limits re-playability, if I finish the one campaign I am not going to want to start all over again whenever they release a new one.

Bleh.... This looks terrible.
