Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Tell my wife I said, "[chat]."

    Cause I'd rather play as some European fella.

    IIRC you can slaughter the Dutch missionaries

    so there's that?

    I haven't tried Empire: Total War but I think that one's late 18th century through Napoleon's shenanigans. And there's Medieval 2: Total War.

    Empire's AI was beyond broken

    I mean, like, you can see the indecision immediately even in the last patched versions of Age of Mythology. People start with towers so that it's comparatively easy to fend off early harassment. But the towers are practically wet tissue paper. What's up with that?

    And every single god damn unit has crush damage (bonus against buildings).

    Rise of Nations is a hell of better game for balace.

    They made buildings really weak to encourage a faster pace than Age of Empires II, apparently. Even units that didn't have crush damage could still do a lot of damage to a building in short order, since buildings had crappy hack armor as well.

    But yeah ES never understood how to balance. Microsoft apparently discouraged rapid patching, too.

    It annoys me in Civilisation that the only way the opponents get harder is if they are allowed to cheat.

    Rather than the AI becoming more intelligent (which is admittedly a very difficult thing to do but still)


    I want a sentient AI. Just a single one, it would be my companion and could oppose or coop with me in games and also organise my life and all kinds of sweet stuff.

    The only thing that I'd worry about is if it felt I was treating it right.

    I'd be genuinely worried I was hurting its feelings or making it unhappy by having it as what is essentially a slave worker.

    Like once when I was playing Skyrim and had Lydia (one of the companions) with me I wished I could have just said to my computer "okay you go take care of the guys up on that wall there, and I'll sort out the folks in the courtyard."

    and it could just be done..

    edit: instead lydia stood around, got hit by arrows until she was low health and crouched down and I had to take care of everything.

    True Lies is great, but each of the four movies I mentioned are genre defining films that set the bar by which other movies are judged.

    I don't think True Lies quite qualifies. :P But I love it nonetheless.

    My first "real job" (eg: not working at the mall or something) was as a tester for that game.

    It was pretty but so very, very unbalanced. There are so many ways to just straight up break the system they put together.

    the norse were the overpowered ones, correct? I got that impression from the few multiplayer games that I got into.
