I have seen these games, but was probably playing others things that caught my eye/credit card (Sid Meyer's Alpha Centauri kept me busy for about a year). Then there were the on-line distractions (Everquest, Tribes (old school), WoW). However, I spent a lot of time playing these games back in the 90's.
that screen shot looks a lot like Medievil 2 Total War.
I think the high point of the series (for me) was Napoleon Total War. a very visceral and visually stunning game that was highly addictive and very playable online in PvP battles. very smooth and very quick. like I said, it was chess on steroids.
Command and Conquer was like my first sweetheart (in gaming terms) and I stayed faithful for years. Later on it became clunky and cartoony with less strategy and more robot close combat which I didn't really go for.
STO is my first MMORPG. I am a treaky which is why I am here - I couldnt see getting into another as I really don't have the interest. the Genre has brought me here as a treky. Without this I would be sending an forces fourth and building an empire somewhere less MMO.
I have reached the end of the story arc here (near enough) and have almost exhausted every mission for the accolade ribbon - not an easy task with so many accolades bugged to death. I was thinking of a bit of an extra marital affair with perhaps total war again - and wodered if anyone had their finger on that pulse.
Ive' just been caught posting and...
Mrs Captain Moonlight calls me a geek - and looking back at my Trekism, online gaming, Knowing of the history of every campaign of note in history and knowing the difference between a neutrino and a graviton - I am coming to terms with the fact, she is right.
So on that note, any recomendations for other games that may be worthy of investigation?
I played Empire some. It was really neat, but I never fully got into it. I would for sure though if they released a Star Wars version. I know that they are doing a Warhammer sometime soon for Total War.
The only thing I play on PC when not on here is MechWarrior Online. It goes along the FPS genre, but it relies more on tactics and teamwork. It's neat tweaking your mech with loadouts, but sadly there is a "meta" that kinda dictates effective builds. It's not too bad playing solo, but the game best plays if you can find a group to be part of to work together. That's the hard part though, at least it has been for me. I've been in 1 really large group were they treated me like a number and moved me within the unit to another group of guys without telling me, even though I'd formed a 7th like bond with the guys I was playing with. Then another group where they didn't show any respect toward members that had different opinions from "command". Then others just have strict restrictions that make it impossible to be a casual player. That's what keeps me from playing it more and the fact it lacks solid content. But it's really fun when you dive into it.
Like Wupteedo said, I've been looking at picking up some of the older Star Wars games to pass time with on GoG.
