    Ok. What about the exploration part? Will player discovered planets/stars still show up on the map? I like the idea in theory. But in practice, the game galaxy well be developing far faster than I...

    Hi,

    can any point me towards a good description of how the single player version of Elite will work? I'd love to pick the game up next year, but I don't spend a huge amount of time playing games,...

    I think that goes without saying. I think most games I've ever enjoyed playing are flawed in one way or another.

    There is a rule called komi to cancel out first player advantage: white (who plays second) starts with 6.5 points. Which pretty much cancels out black's advantage from playing first. (the half a...

    disagree. CK2 is a good example. The base game is regularly on sale at knock down prices and I like Paradox's model for funding the game. Kind of like an opt-in subscription. And in theory, allows...

    I think you need the mutants and combat in there to make the Zone dangerous. Exploring, while having to avoid patrols and watching out for scary mutants is part of what gives those games such a great...

    Agree. it sounds really interesting. Given Arcen's track record it will probably be a flawed gem, but I'd rather that over a polished turd :)

    Yes, those were the things I was wondering about: if the gameplay just doesn't stand up any more, I'd rather give it a miss.

    Sounds like it's not worth the effort.

    Slow start up time? I don't understand this one: the game is very quick to set up, and you start making interesting decisions from the first move. Fuseki (the opening) is a vital part of the game.

    It's partly that. And partly cause sometimes old games offer a lot that their newer versions don't. (BG and Planescape still hold up fine!). I kickstarted Wasteland 2, so I got a free copy of...

    Is it worth playing Wasteland 1?

    hi,

    sorry if this was all addressed in the wasteland2 thread. But as the thread suggests, I'm wondering if I should give Wasteland 1 a fair chance? I fired it up, made a party, wandered around the...

    Hmm. i wonder who long it will be until the Daggerfall port is done... I've been interested in having a proper play around with that for a while now.

    Go. Beautifully simple ruleset, incredibly deep strategic and tactical gameplay. The more I play, the more I'm amazed by how rich the game is. It really does make a mockery of "rule heavy" games like...

    I fail to see what it lacks that that all other 4x games have. Sure, Sins is a streamlined 4x game, I won't argue about that (instead, I'd suggest that is one of its strengths). Unless you consider...

    In a 4x type game, it would be hard to do... you'd couldn't have conflict a zero-sum game, as then one side wins what the other loses, and eventually just steamrolls the world. So...
