I got it first for my iPod Touch, so you could justify it as an App Store port.
I enjoyed empires for the time that I played it (about 2 months ago). Popcorn (which not all of you will know) still plays it.
I was thinking about M&B from the steam sale today, but I'm not quite sure. How many of you would recommend it?
Someone start the new thread. Also some recommendations on today's sales.
Why do we need a new thread?
I thought a new thread is needed if one reaches 1000 posts, but maybe not.
For those of you who have not yet purchased Fallout New Vegas, you would be a fool to pass up this deal. 15 bucks for 300 hours of gameplay should be a crime.
Finally got the download content, Zion National Park here i come!
For some threads they make that rule, but it's not a forum rule.
We don't need a new thread yet, and the rule doesn't really apply in AoG. Sales incoming, also remake20 BUY MOUNT&BLADE WARBAND NOW.

Awesome Steam sales today. 70% off on Fallout: NV
I think I'm going to grab the entire Doom collection for $8.74.
I was tempted by the New Vegas DLC at 70% off until I realized there's more DLC on the way very soon for FNV. I'll just do like I did with Fallout 3 and wait until all the DLC is out and there's a special on all of it at once. I'd pay 10$ for 5 DLC alright. Which is what I did with Fallout 3.
Today I picked up the Doom collection and Mount and Blade Fire and Sword
Same, i still need to finish the F3 DLC and too many other games.
One thing though, it's probably best to start a new game when doing the DLC... Because frankly it's kind of boring to do all the DLC while maxed out in level... Although F3 had one DLC that increased the level limit, I still reached that limit pretty quickly and was maxed out for most of the 25-30 hours I got out of all the DLC, which is kind of meh. Also some of that F3 DLC is garbage (most specifically the one in the spaceship and also the one in the chinese war simulation, yuck, I hope people can tell us the FNV DLC is better). Actually I didn't like the Pittsburgh one much either. It's always a little jarring to me to be sent to an entire new map but whatever.
EDIT: You know, thinking about it again, I think the only DLC I actually really liked from Fallout 3 was the one in the swamp area.
The Pitt was one of the best Fallout 3 dlc in my opinion, with the exception of Point Lookout. But you're right, Zeta and Anchorage were just downright horrible. Thankfully the New Vegas DLC has been much better so far.
Any opinions of Singularity or Alpha Protocol? They both look decently interesting. Alpha reminds me a little of Deus Ex.
I've read that Alpha Protocol has a great story than you can actually change along the way with some great RPG elements. However, as it was made by Obsidian (same dev as New Vegas) its a buggy game and the AI was pretty dumb at release. However, definitely worth it for this price.
Ok going to buy M&B. I just realized I've kinda spammed this thread recently. I will try and keep my post count in this thread down.
It's fun enough, and I enjoy the sandbox mode, but it requires a bit of effort. Fun enough, and worth the price it is now.
I guess I'm showing that I still think that my GeForce 8600 GT is pretty neat, 4 years later... .
I also did find today that it runs BF: BC2 pretty good at decent resolution, after I updated the drivers.
But yeah, I meant the Source Engine upgrades. Though Empires doesn't have textures that make full use of it (e.g. it's not a L4D2 quality, which we also know ain't cutting edge), it does look better than the typical HL2 mod made by a kid.
Oh and I second getting at least one copy of M&B, probably Warband.
