    I just got SR3 gifted to me and dabbled around a bit with it. Love what I've seen so far, although I hope there will be a bit more variety in weapon selection at some point.
    Lets' say it was, as that makes me look good.

    If you ever want to do some co-op let me know, as I'm always up for SR3. Ninety hours and counting and I can still get lost in it.

There are lots of people who have been burnt by past TW's who would love it but can't see past the flaws of the old games, which are compeltley fixed here.

    I was expecting to maybe play this campaign, one FOTS then call it a day, given how massive and time consuming it is, but I can see myself having many sessions over the next few years in spite of how much investment it requires.
    I know exactly what you mean. I've clocked 200 hours plus in Shogun 2 and still haven't beaten the campaign. Bloody realm divide. I think I've finally faced the fact I need to mod it, otherwise you spend your whole game planning around it. Last game with Mori was going pretty well, but even my allies turned on me and I couldn't afford to fight a war on two fronts and support my navy. Speaking of navies, I know there was a lot of complaints about the lack of naval invasions in Empire TW, well not here because the AI is a right sneaky bastard.

    Have you tried converting? I went Christian as I liked the idea of inciting revolts with missionaries to compliment the nuisance of my ninjas and my devious diplomacy, and it was a cornerstone of my strategy. Revolts are more likely to occur in provinces where the agent is not from the majority religion, so basically all of Japan if you’re Christian. It’s an investment for sure but it pays off if the circumstances are right. I more or less doubled my realm through conjuring revolts and then taking the stolen settlements. Likewise, the Nanban Trade Ship can defeat full navies on its own, so it’s an effective way of having a cheap but powerful navy. I have three patrolling the seas and while it isn’t enough for majority control it’s plenty to protect myself. On the other hand my conquest has slowed to a crawl where I haven't prepared the soil so to speak so there is that. I really thought I'd thought it through but I may have exploded too quickly...

    I’m really convinced though that this is as much a 4X strategy as a it is a traditional TW game. You can’t just bludgeon your way home anymore, if you don’t use all the tools at your disposal you will be at the mercy of the AI who does.

    Um..so anyway. Screenshots? I mentioned a boat above so here are two from Max Payne 3

    Those Shogun shots look fantastic. I really need to start that at some point, but my history with TW games is "Oooooh, new TW game, yay! *Many hours later* Oh man, oh jeez, that's...that's very late."

    Anyhow, to add to the deluge of FPS screenshots! Halo: Combat is evolving! Featuring Pistol Of Covenant Bitch Slapping Superiority.

    Just how low does it go?


    ...that low, I guess.

    Sacrifice

    See this down here



    There are two dragons (and some lesser things) guardianed to that manalith. For those who don't know Sacrifice, dragons are the 5-soul superbeast of Persephone; normally two would be hard to take, when guardianed I just don't even know.

    First I threw rocks at them using spells and units



    This didn't do anything. Yogo was down there healing them, although it wasn't really needed they had so much health and regen. Now I could have crafted a force specifically to take out the dragons. Casualties would be massive but my side should pull through. However, let me introduce you to Charnels superspell - Death, he's the black shape down there with scythes for arms



    This guy instakills the nearest 7 units, friend or foe, and as such is made for moments like these. It's not perfect - Yogo will easily be able to collect the souls and, no longer bound to the manalith, go stomping. But that's a risk worth taking.
    And look, it was super effective



    No more dragons, and shortly after, no more Yogo (that's his altar to the left).

    Sacrifice was the first game that made me realize gaming can be something else than just "games". I remember a phase, where you are removed from your god powers, and walk around a wasteland with a lot of things that could kill you a single shot. And the feeling whas very alien and interesting. It also has a lot of "fuck you" moments when you finnaly can steamroll the enemy god, and "oh no, fuck, fuck, fuck..." when a pair of scissors attack your army of papier and turn you army into harvesteable souls". Its a very special game for me.

    I remember that mission - I think it's a Stratos one where you don't have an altar so getting killed once means it's game over. And seeing as it's mission 7 or 8 there are plenty of things that can completely wreck your day if you aren't being careful.

    The balance of the game is something that really needs to be praised. While a wizard can cause untold destruction on both individual and large numbers of creatures it can be so easy to get mobbed or left without mana/manahoars and so made effectively useless. There's lots of spells that can turn the tide of a battle, but you still have to be able to get the battle to that point in the first place or be able to capitalize. The wizard just plays such an important role; without it, combined arms (melee, ranged and flying altogether) armies would always win - there'd be little point in doing anything but making even numbers of troops. But with a powerful wizard leading them you could have an army entirely made up of melee who charge in when the wizard kills the flying. Then you have a massive advantage over the other guy, while he/she/it has no comparable move they can make against your single-role army.

    This foray back into the world of Sacrifice has been one of the best gaming experiences of the year for me, and seeing as the game is currently $5 on gog (and may well go on further sale at some point) I encourage everyone reading this to pick it up and try it. I doubt it's a game that often makes it into "My top XX of all time*", but it will always be in the "Honourable/Special mentions" list.

    *saying this it will now be in my Top Strategy Games of all time list

    Once you get the hang of balancing your budget, commute times will be the real problem. Keep that in mind when you're spacing everything so far out from one another. (Also, you don't really need to separate commercial and residential - the only difference between the two is that commercial properties like traffic and residential properties don't.)

    He's a continuation of the hide and seek meme established above. Maybe.
