In topic The game....
Our thoughts and best wishes are with you. I am glad you can find some respite in the game, escapism can be a help.

In topic Best games based on Roman Empire?

Yeah, I just picked this up myself as I've had an eye on it for a while. There's Field of Glory 2 which is a turn-based tactical battlefield game and Field of Glory: Empires which is a strategy campaign game. They are by different developers but if you buy both they can be integrated together for one big game, something vaguely akin to how Total War has "two games".

There's a bundle wthat includes both games on sale atm:
https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/11300/Field_of_Glory_Masters_Edition/

Not a recommendation as I just started playing it - just supplementary information.

Field of Glory: Empires look similar to Imperator Rome, which one do you think is better?

I'm not in a position to say yet - only just picked Empires up so I have little to go on but a reasonable first impression.

That's an interesting catch - I should check it out

It is. Since we've already bumped, Polaris Sector is on sale. Won't tick everyone's boxes so worth checking before you buy, but

In topic Dealing with Revenants
Hitting them from long range is good, preferably with nukes.

If no nukes, I like to hit them with vipers, missiles and an aggressively used 4xAdamant phalanx (vertically aligned for broadsides).

Although long range is desirable vs revs, the most expensive thing you can try against them is to run when they have you in range, so my rule of thumb with revs is if they get in range of the caps, it's all in to melt them ASAP.

There is more chance of me being struck by lightning than buying "in game coins" for RAGE 2 from its store, so I guess I will only need to use a Bethesda account if I buy a DLC upgrade. Hopefully.

"Requires 3rd-Party Account: Bethesda.net (Supports Linking to Steam Account)"

That's what is posted on the store page for Rage 2. I can only assume that it is true otherwise why would it be on the store page?

Yes, my post was some extra info on top of the requirements, since you have already obtained it and have it sitting unplayed :)

The game worked fine for me without a Bethesda account, not sure why it says one is required

I guess it's because they make you buy the DLC with in-game currency that you must buy outside the game. Who was responsible for that genius idea we can only guess, but at least the base game doesn't seem to be locked behind a Besthesda login.

Judging from gameplay videos this game looks much like the Far Cry series.

In topic Find three motor parts mission broken

Bump, for other players who have just got the game, maybe some of you won't redo this mission 87067953218548174874 times trying to find the machine parts, like I did.

It's a shame - to echo another player on this forum, I liked the game up to this point.

In topic Is this game bad?
My early impressions are, it has a number of annoying things about it, but at its core it is a shooter akin to Doom and Wolfenstein - and that means damned solid combat.

I've decided to forget the story, the pink, the coins, the dumb NPC names and so on, and just play it like a massive doom map with incidental vehicles and a crysis suit.

Of course it doesn't hurt that I loved RAGE and wanted more of it, so even with the changes a bigger RAGE game makes me do a happy.

In topic Free on Epic Games: Feb 18 - Feb 25
This works out well for me - absolutely loved Rage, wanted a sequel for ages, really enjoyed the new Wolfenstein/Doom games' combat but skipped this one because coins.

As a fan of id that likes Rage I would have liked to play earlier and support the franchise, but actually free is pretty good, too.

1. By this reasoning, never include any information on any game's UI, because you can "figure it out".

I think it was a reasonable response to talk of it ruining the game. Anyone reading this thread and considering the game should know this is not a catastophic problem.

2. Your nickname is pretentious.

Inasmuch as all nicknames people set for themselves pretentious, perhaps. On the other hand, maybe not as pretentious as you might think.

Are these things fixed somehow now and are they going to be somehow fixed in 4.0?

Everything fixed? No. Lots of progress? Yes.

4.0 and Cradle of Humanity seem like the perfect time to start up X4 if you can remember when X3 was the buggy mess :steamthumbsup:

^ This is about right.

In topic X3 or X4 (advice sriously needed.)
Definitely start on X3. Terran Conflict is a magnificent game, full of atmosphere and wonder, but you might slightly ruin it for yourself if you play a later version first.

It would be a crying shame to miss out on a proper first play through of TC in my opinion.
Yeah, Warhammer isn't the biggest draw for me - although at least it's 40k.

The combat looks a bit like a much more focused version of the Age of Wonders: Planetfall combat, being developed by Black Lab, which is probably no bad thing, actually.

Yeah, there was the suggestion they had teased The Expanse on social media.

Going from "Maybe it's The Expanse" to "Oh it's warhammer" in one second flat was quite a surprise, ha.
I doubt it's The Expanse, much as that game would be the best thing ever.

In topic Tactical pause?
To add my voice to the OP's, I'd love this for a single-player campaign :)
I would buy and play Kingmaker first if you haven't played it, it's had a lot of post release support (patches, content etc) whereas this still has a road ahead of it, and Kingmaker is a great game in its own right.
