    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 would easily recommend The Last Federation to anybody who likes strategy games, innovative design, and puzzling things out. I also agree with the above comments. But I don't think $15 is a lot (how...

    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...

    I think that says more about you (and you're not the only one) than it does about the quality of the game. Some of the most fun and rewarding games of Go I've played have been against dan players...

    I'd say Sins is easily a 4x game. You explore, expand, exploit and exterminate, for sure.

    Like chess then?

    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...

    That was my point. The game is designed from the floor up with KISS in mind for the AI. As vinraith says, the asymmetry solves a lot of problems

    I've been messing around with multiplayer ALB with a friend. It's a lot of fun. Just a shame there aren't any PvP orientated campaigns.

    I didn't know it was actually out. Is it? If so, how did I not know? I avoided the early access nonsense, and have been waiting for the full game
