Ok, I have tried it out now. Haven't yet properly sunk teeth in, but have a good look. It looks really solid. My complaint about lifestyles wasn't waranted, they work fine and you can switch between most of them, though I do worry that this might create "meta builds". Also I was mistaken, there are practically no EU4-ification. Schemes at worst can resemble the dice roll sieges, but that was basically the same in CK2, except now there is a UI element to show this. Otherwise the game seems like CK2+, just a general all-round upgrade along with new stuff.
But there is one niggle. The UI feels bad. Maybe I was too used to CK2, but the new one feels bad. It's too spread out: character, dynasties, religion and culture in one bottom corner, currencies in the opposite top corner and all the rest important panels down from there. I guess I'll just have to learn to use the hotkeys, but why the hell couldn't it just be all together in the bottom with the character, or the same as in CK2 - at the top, like in every single other PDX game.

Another shitty UI problem - army counter doesn't at all correspond to where the army actually is, so it results in me clicking the wrong provinces thinking that the army is in the one where the bar is. Also they decided to move the different holdings out of a single abstract bar representing the province and instead onto the map itself, which is extremely shitty to use, clutters the map and only adds aesthetic value. Picrel explains better I think.
The game is great, but the UI is total dogshit.

So starting as some duke in France in 867 I got the highest score on a crusade in 955 and someone from my house that I randomly picked as benefactor got rewarded the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

The game then asked me if I want to play as him instead and I said yes. Had the decision of converting to local culture and Muslim and I did. Swore fealty to the Abbasid Caliphate afterwards, won several crusades against troops led by people from my own dynasty but Catholic, and later claimed the throne of Abbasid in 1098.

After that I put the game on observer mode and went to sleep and woke up to world being in 1723.

How has nobody posted this yet? It is developed by a Chinese indie studio named ‘Game Science’. From the looks of it it's a Soulsborne inspired action adventure game. I think the artstyle is great it looks absolutely gorgeous as well.

What do you guys think of this? Is this finally a response to everyone that says commies kill muh vidya?

No, sorry. Soulsborne games are shit fam.


Imagine a Panthay Rebellion game, basically a Muslim led secular regime parallel to the Taiping


Do you remember the name of the game?


They LOVE fantasy shit. I can't even count the number of fantasy dramas that are coming out over there. They're long as fuck too.

>no Xuanzang or his juniors
Literally what is the point of making a Wukong game if you aren't going to tie it with Journey to the West? That is like making a game about Odysseus after he reached his home.

At least start the story about how he became a king, got his staff, anger the gods and found penance from the Goddess of Mercy.

EVEfags must go, this is a PSO website.


just fly cheaper shit then. combat frigates for ambushing explorers aren't that expensive


I joined the Pandemic Horde for World War Bee and fought in a couple battles. I don't really get PVP in the game so I did jack shit. I usually spent my time on exploration, station trading, and other things I could do solo.

If you actually get a few other people I might start playing again.

I have had a little fun with the "new" PSO.


Well, if no one is going to play I will just join Pandemic Horde and be a null carebear.

Opinions on this game and what can be added or done better?
3 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


I played it when it first came out cause I like that Civilisation series. I liked that cities can occupy more than one hex, but I didn't like the district method of doing it. Roads getting built by traveling is a very nice touch, building roads and 1 gold maintenance per tile was annoying in CivV.

I remember not liking the combat/unit system (something about combining them, although I liked that feature in CivIV), and a few other things. It's been a while since I played it. Have they made significant changes/improvements in the last two years?


Gold should not be a resource, but a tool of management. An error that hasn't been solved since the day of Civ 1.
Population should be the main resource for everything. Civ 5 has taken a right step, that is making science generated by population, but that isn't enough. Population should be necessary for building armies and construction.
Moreover, foods shouldn't be resources that make population growing, but resources for maintaining population level. Population level will directly depended on your policy, it should cost at most twenty years to drastically increase the population to the cap, if your foods and healthcare technology allowed it.


So capping the population will be a dilemma. If you let your population to the max, then your empire will be strong, however, in the case of climate change or natural disasters, it will make your people starving, collapsing your empire. On the other hand, you only cap population at 50% level, your empire will be poorer, but when a disaster happen, you still have enough foods to keep your empire stable

I like to play wide so that's cool.

I still feel like no civ game has ever matched up to the eternal chad SMAC though.


SMAC truly was the perfect 4x.

Help me out here /games/. Do you lads know of any games that explore African politics and history? I've started playing FC2 for the first time recently and I'm finding that I quite like that it explores the lingering effects of colonialism and foreign interference in Africa. I realize this is an extremely specific niche but I'm curious if there are other properties out there that are like this.

I'd hardly call V a specifically "anti-soviet" game. It's true that you fight Soviet soldiers at one point, but you also fight US marines in "Ground Zero" (who are explicitly portrayed as evil torturers) as well as Afrikaaner mercenaries who are probably connected to the National Party regime in South Africa (who were supported by America for a long time and Reagan wanted to keep doing so despite mounting international outcry).


RE5 is kind of bad unfortunately, it's more or less a retread of RE4 (all the same plot beats and encounters) but with Africans instead of Spaniards (who speak Mexican Spanish in what's implied to be rural Galicia, for some reason).


In Command & Conquer Tiberian Dawn if you choose the Nod faction all the campaign is set in Africa.


RE5 is a miserable experience unless you have someone to play with too. Everything is balanced around having two people shooting so every zombie and boss is either a bullet sponge (several times worse than other RE bulletsponges) or requires a co-op trick to beat. The ai co-op partner is too stupid for either of those things.


I'm surprised none of you have mentioned Democracy 3 Africa, you can literally play as the ANC but do the good things they said they would in the constitution.

Alas, nobody else.
I'm bored and it is incredibly difficult to find new friends to play video games together. It was easier back in the day when you could find players through custom games and matchmaking…
Games I like:
>Warcraft 3 custom games
>Morrowind multiplayer
>LOTR Battle for Middle Earth II
>Stronghold series
>SCP Secret Laboratory
>COD World at War (nazi zombies)
>Ages of Empire
>zoo tycoon
>TES Oblivion

I only play solo games fam.


You aren't missing out on much.


Missing out on much?
There must be something worthwhile to do with other people… but I have tried a few games on gameranger.
OP is mostly about games that are good for socializing, like MMOs or matchmaking, but finding about what genre and games are good for it.


Then go ahead and try it, I have based my opinion over experiences in a very large timeframe. Most of it just very shallow, you are much better off actually going outside and doing something with people.

NOD OR GDI? Scrin/third way acelerationism doesn't count, neither TW4.

Personally I play NOD because I feel powerful and at the same time guided by the "people's" Messiah, fighting against a standard NATO org, not matters the cruel reality of the tiberium poisoning, the decay of the planet, the mixture of totalitarian corporation-state-church of NOD or the experiments with humans.

One vision, one purpose.

C&C series is the better game series tbh. Red Alert was just red scare: the game.


>especially when it is obvious that Kane has plans of his own
Communism. Lenin -> Yuri -> Kain, simple as


Kane is obviously an analogue to Cain. What with the Marked of Kane/Cain and the fact that he can't die. Even the Scrin can tell he is not human.


I love how they were building up the mystery of who he was and his final goal before they just threw in the towel for C&C 4 and he took a portal to some ayylien planet and left Earth. Like what the fuck you could have done that decades ago.


I think the original plan was Kane returning to somewhere alien. I read about dev notes that said that the Tacitus was from an alien world that fought the Scrin, which is why Kane had so much affinity with it. Too bad the new people fucked it up. Kinda sad tbh.

Is it true the devs of this are actually critiquing venezeulan "socialism"? They're from there so I wouldn't be surprised.
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


and it's supposed to be a worker cooperative, they might even be all socialists.


I think one of the devs on their personal tumblr mentioned in passing that one of the reasons behind making it was to escape Venezuela or whatever. That said, nothing on their blog really even remotely approaches the usual levels of gusano dumbassery you'd see elsewhere regarding the topic, so..


Pretty much. The blog post (from what I remember) was pretty much "We have to get out of this country it's going to shit" and that was all.


Lots of money goes into bashing the Venezuelan government and it's widely popular and encouraged.


Vuvuzela is a trotskist hellscape so it makes sense.
