    JA2 will rape you with a rusty rake.

    My bodycount must have been in the thousands by the time I left the country.

    Yeah, in the INI file there's a QUEEN_SENDS_TROOPS_TO_DRASSEN or DRASSEN_COUNTERATTACK line, just set that to 0 and it won't happen in the next game

    It's not so much that as the ability to call in reenforcements.

    I once started out by attacking the central drassen sector. After that, the other two sectors were completely empty.

    God the guys at Paradox's forum are the biggest bunch of powergamers ever.

    Though I have to admit some of the mods are very well done. I love the unit icon mods, it adds a lot of flavor to a drab interface.

    My friend gave this to me in high school but I never played it. Is it any good? I heard the maps are frikkin huuuuuuuge and units can take like 30 minutes to go across them and stuff. And also that infantry can ride on tanks, like all sitting on them. That's kinda neat.

    It's very detailed, each map can take between 30 minutes and 2 hours (this is all from memory, I haven't played it in years).

    So, did any mention the as-yet-unconfirmed rumour that's doing the rounds that Starbreeze (of Chronicles of Riddick Starbreeze) is doing a new Syndicate game?

    Not turn-based, but totally awesome. The original still makes my panties wet.

    In other awesome remake but not turn-based catagory: Carrier Command.

    Did you play FM3 on the PSX, because that was a ton better. Granted, I don't think I gave FM4 enough credit and might have to replay it sometime.

    It's pretty weird. You give orders in a turn based fashion but things play out in real time.

    You know what is the awesomest thing about Paradox Games? You can start out in the Middle Ages playing Crusader Kings, carry over your save to the Renaissance and the Age of Sail in Europa Universalis 2, carry over your save to the Industrial Age in Victoria: An Empire Under The Sun, then carry over your save to World War II and the modern world with Hearts of Iron 2. I haven't actually tried it, but the potential to go from dispatching Saracens in the Middle East with the Templars to nuclear standoffs in the Cold War is definitely a great feature.

    Once they're done making Hearts of Iron 3 and make a sequel to Victoria with the Europa Universalis 3 engine, they can link the games all the way back from the Roman Empire with Europa Universalis: Rome.

    Hearts Of Iron 2 has stolen literally months from my life. That is the only video game ever where I can start playing at 10am and play until the sun goes down without even noticing.

    I am currently playing the FUCK out of Final Fantasy Tactics A2. I can't remember the last time I was this hooked on a game. I'm playing when I walk from home to the train station, from the train to work, from work to the train, and from the station back home. And from then until I go to sleep.


    It's a very real possibility that this game will get me run over by a truck.

    oh my god, this happened to me when i first got the game. by the time i beat the final boss, i looked at the time counter and realized i've put in close to 90 hours of playtime on it. then it let me get back to playing extra missions, and i stopped playing, because it was getting unhealthy.

    I played the demo of Valkyria Chronicles and it looks awesome. Crazy awesome, even. I showed it to a friend (we played it on his PS3) and he's buying it as soon as it comes out. I'm not sure, but I think tactical combat is a new genre to him.

    I'm doing a quest in FFTA2 now, and there's something funny going on.. I'm supposed to guard a tree from all the monsters, and I got my units in a good defensive position near the tree, but the monsters don't seem to know that they're supposed to get to the tree. They're just walking back and forth on the other side of the map. Looks like I'll have to take the fight to them.

    And I like your sig, fadingathedges.

    The demo for Valkyria Chronicles looks great and plays ok.

    I'm getting really excited for it though since it's been getting incredibly high ratings from a lot of reviewers. I normally don't pay too much attention to those, but I wanted to since this is a pretty nich game.

    Isn't that an Atlus game? They always have really interesting looking games but I can never maintain my interest in them for long.

    Like, that operation darkness game looked rad but apparently it sucks.

    That looks pretty cool, actually.

    Too bad I don't have a PS3. Maybe I'll make my friend who's planning to get one get this. And that Africa game (or whatever it's called, the one where you just take pictures in Africa).
