It really is a Paranoia simulator. Genre created.

I've been a PC gamer for 25 years and, as far as games go, Windows has never been a priority for Microsoft and I can't see it changing... especially with Phil "Xbox" Spencer around. Even when they try and talk about things they are doing for PC, they end up talking about things for Xbox, they just can't help themselves. I'm not sure they even understand PC gaming/gamers.

I'm a PC gamer despite Microsoft, not because of them.

Wow. Did they read your post yesterday or something?Reply
Kirk McKeand Avatar

More likely they've been tempering expectations, prepping for this announcement. Don't want people going in expecting a direct continuation.

Yup. Proper pissed at them for this. I did however buy all the Fables books not long after finishing the game. Its a great world worthy of a sequel. Shame.Reply

Unfortunately The Wolf Among Us was in that unenviable position of being announced before The Walking Dead appeared, when Telltale could be a bit more niche. TWD blew up and Wolf Among Us was just something they had to finish.

They already overcharged in my head. Could have had a fortune off me for CKII but the prices for tiny DLC was ridiculous.Reply

I'm awaiting the day they stop developing both CKII and EUIV.

Just a few more months then until a pricedrop, and I can play those stupid games properly again...

Tropico 5 review snippet Does Tropico 5 reward political manouvering?
Shifting which political factions had ascendancy over the various time periods was the only time I felt that politics were involved at any meaningful level.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim review snippet Is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim grindy?
I wouldnt say so. The levelling up process is just an invisible byproduct of doing things. I was barely aware of the level up system.

Total War: Attila review snippet How well does Total War: Attila portray ancient Rome?
The absolute chaos of the time is perfectly portrayed. The world is so up in the air and you cannot predict whats gonna happen. In my game the Elba (Irish) ended up holding most of Spain. The Vikings went on a crazy rampage through to the Ukraine. Britain remained in the hands of Romano-British upstarts and then to top it off, The Vandals just hung out in Egypt for the entire game. That was just the first game i played...

Style and longevity over Hyper realism and poor coding. They are great, but not in the traditional sense.

Smooth as butter. Almost a mobile game. Will run on a calculator. Window mode is perfect, UI scales with window resizing. Zero loading times.
