    Maybe it's a regional thing? I'd swear I'd seen the base game for $5 on both Steam and Gamersgate during various sales. The real expense is bound up in the DLC, and the only decent discounts tend to...

    I don't really understand what's "mad" about the idea that selling games at 5 for a dollar probably isn't a sustainable practice for game developers, or that doing so creates customer expectations...

    Eh, not really. There's no substantive DLC in this deal, and the base game has been on sale for a pittance many times.

    I can easily imagine. It's hard to call the game relaxing when every time you make a turn your natural instincts send you head-on into oncoming traffic. All those wrong-way roundabouts are...

    Yup. Nobody wants to hear it, but we're headed in some worrying directions and I'm really not sure there's anything the individual consumer can really do about it anymore. Vogel's piece from awhile...

    Yeah, the left handed driving is already pretty stressful. The best solution is probably just to stay the hell out of Britain (and in the game?).

    It can be made pretty hardcore, actually, but you'd need an H-shifter peripheral and a wheel to really go that way with it. I actually do turn on what few simulation aspects can be managed with a...

    The easy fix for that is never to turn them off.



    I've done all that, many many times, this is actually much more novel. It's an opportunity to explore a huge world, and (generally) a great...

    The speed traps are getting on my last nerve, honestly. I've been driving through Britain, and this business of abruptly dropping the speed limit with no warning, then immediately setting a speed...

    Yup, I tend to put on either Pandora or a podcast in the background, then boot up the game and go. It seems to tab out very well. FWIW I'm running exactly the setup Faldrath mentioned on the previous...

    Does cabin style actually do anything? The higher tiers look like they should be more aerodynamic (and perhaps save some fuel as a result) but is there any real value to them beyond the aesthetic?

    Sounds awesome, I'm looking forward to trying that at some point in the future. As it happens, I'm downloading Essentials and the recommended jazzycat stuff (finally) along with the FOV mod. I gather...

    Ah, I hadn't realized they'd published Rome through Kalypso. I was wondering why it wasn't being advertised as a sale.

    I barely played AoE1, and the little bit I did play was more "prehistory" than that, but I really don't know. It is very strange that it's such an untreated era, there's so much capacity for great...

    I hope you like it. If you find you do, you may want to look at Wars in Ancient Greece anyway. Unlike Rome it covers a historical period that no other game seems interested in: the Peloponnesian War...

    Dammit, that's really sad to see. The Hegemony series are great games, but those insipid Total War games seem to suck up all the oxygen in this particular strategy space.
