To Mrki - The openness is what I love about it. The different victory conditions, combined with the ongoing interplay of all the factions, makes for a game where you really can do pretty much what...
The fantastic space ARPG with a strategic layer, Drox Operative, is £3.74 on Steam, that's 75% off.

I should be playing The Sunless Sea - Zubmariner, but much to my frustration it keeps hanging on the 'start new game' loading screen. I'd actually been looking forward to this. Never mind, started a...

I was quite shocked as a history conscientious Brit when first playing it to see the game so cheerfully present a concept about imperial competition to travel the world as a group of well heeled...

I'm baffled as to why it hasn't been on the receiving end of anti Imperial orientalist white privilege lambasting. Not that such would be an accurate or fair critique but theres definitkey things in...

Drox Operative is the absolute business. I love how you can just mooch about, joining in with wars for a bit then going off to explore some wrecks, do a couple of quests, hang out near the frontline...

I'm enjoying Drox Operative but it's odd. Won the first sector with an accidental economic victory which came while I was cashing in a load of quests - I had no idea I was anywhere close and was...

Stumbling cluelessly but enjoyably around Drox Operative. Got pally with the Fringe and decided to help them when the Humans got genocidal, despite them being half Human strength. My 'help'...

I'm sorry Alex, I should have realised that I can't currently sustain playing a game of that length in a reasonably timely fashion. Initial enthusiasm blinded me to it, I'm afraid.

Posting to express my approval of this thread - as with Elite, my laptop won't run this, but I can get vicarious enjoyment from others' adventures. Please continue to post your excellent screenshots,...

Sorry to be a pain but I'd like to leave it for a bit as I'm not well. Will post again when improved.

I don't think I can do this, I'm afraid. Can't get Dropbox to work (tried with and without VPN), and I suspect it's to do with my weird institutional internet and/or registry-fucked laptop.

Added BoA2. Come at me in an AGEOD game, someone! Total beginner, but halfway to figuring out the supply system.

That sounds good. I think the last multi-player PBEM game I played was Dominions 3. I'm slowly getting into BoA2 (which has several 40-odd turn campaigns, just 2 players though) and RoP (same), so...

My copy of SI is on my other PC. That's probably a good reason to sort that PC out, if people are playing that again. Such a fun game.
I've also done the AGEOD, and am currently paddling in the...

I sincerely hope that it isn't caused by financial difficulties, but instead to do with AGEOD/Slitherine slowly realising that there is some value in sales
I'm hoping that this is an attempt to...

Anyone played Turbo Dismount? Looks fun, but also looks like it might only be fun for 45 minutes.

Really? What expansions?
Various DLC, mirroring physical expansions released for the boardgame. It's mostly more stuff rather than new mechanics (though there are alternate endings, which can be...

Been playing Talisman. Initially it seemed a pure nostalgia exercise, but when I added a few expansions it became a very tasty comfort game, colourful and amiable.

Any takers for a game based on CS Lewis' haunting sci-fi trilogy? That's what sprang to mind when I saw the thread. It's a shame those books are so overshadowed by the Narnia ones.
You have to accept a loan from them (seriously, I am not making this up) but I think once you've gone off and upgraded your ship etc. you might be able to come back and dispense laser justice. Better...
Cheers Dreamlord, I took the plunge on the Superbox and it does look up my street. I love that the first aliens you encounter appear to be the Conservative Party ("Profit issssss life"), and it is...
The X games (mid-2000s ones) are cut price on Steam. These look quite promising as a budget alternative for folk who can't run Elite, but there seem to be a bunch of them and I can't tell them apart!...

Vestal's weapon affects all attack stats not just her Mace so it wil make her better at everything.
Oh, I didn't realise this. I was overthinking it.
