I may need to get The Long Dark, it does sound good.
This seems appropriate:
If only that man by the photocopier had his own wolf to protect him from a vicious lone wolf attack.
It is, isn't it?
And yes, Voyager will offer a great starting experience.
Save Interloper for when Voyager is no longer challenging. You basically need to know the maps like the back of your hand to have any chance of surviving a couple days of Interloper at all.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a wolf is a good guy with a wolf.
Thanks @Lexicus I will jump in at some point and we'll see how it goes. I want to play Japan, but that seems like a pretty big first bite.
playing Titan Quest with my girlfriend currently, almost done with Greece and it's so much freakin fun. She's doing Dream & Nature melee, I'm doing Storm / Spirit mage.
Titan Quest was a surprisingly good Diablo clone, I thought.
I pity you, console gamer. PC Gamers are the superior race. The best way to get a tot to learn how to use MS-DOS commands was setting him loose on a computer with several new-and-improved 3-inch floppy disks with entire videogames in them and letting him install things and run amok. Which was addictive and educational.
btw those are games from that time when gameplay trumped graphics, so I might understand why you don't know them. More seriously, I recommend that you play them all.
That is how my son got started in liking programming in the 90s.
I'd actually recommend Italy, they have enough power to be fun but Germany is still the #1 target of the other powers so you don't have to bear the burden of responsibility.
Were the superior race. In these days of Steam and games made for console not so much.
Nope, still better. Even the newest consoles can't keep up with the newest titles, sometimes - my example being Division 2 - and PC still has literally ten thousand+ exclusive titles.
I'd gotten away with it so many times in my first Voyager game that I thought I would press my luck. I should'a just used those purifier tabs.
Excuse me? You watch yer mouth. I am an OG PC Gamer AND Console Gamer. I had a Tandy 3000 and an Atari 5200 at my house as a kid. I learned to use spreadsheet on Lotus 123 and learned to program in BASIC on a green/black screen Apple IIc. Madmaze, Mission to Mars, King's Quest, and Oregon Trail baby. I can still remember how mindblowing the Original Civ 1 and Sim City were when they came out. "improved 3-inch floppy disks"?? Come at me whippersnapper First of all they're 3.5's, get it right Second, I remember being outraged that they had the audacity to call those things "floppy"... They weren't floppy at all! My floppy disks were the 5 and 1/4 inch black ones . Now that was floppy. You could shake em like a polaroid pic'cha
I remember games that you had to secure with the twist-down tabs on the disk slot.
Floppy disks, that's flash. Didn't own a PC but mates on had cassettes.
Commodore 64s and Amigas were common, at least relatively.
Yup I remember Amiga had superior graphics as well as processor speed back than. You know - that starting screen from GTA Vice City is Commodore cassette style I think only loading games on Commodore took ages
Are you doing anniversary edition? In the 1st edition it didn't feel like a grind, but in the newest it was like grinding a lot just to kill 3 gorgons. Maybe it is different with two players.
Japan is probably a pretty decent power to play first, as cardgame says it may be a big bite but that's how you learn. You will have to understand how naval, air, and land combat work to play Japan effectively.
I started with Germany, and have never played Japan.
Do you play multiplayer by phone? That game looks fun for multiplayer
Hmmm....interesting discussion people. Ok let me give you all another viewpoint.
Purpose of this post is related to console vs. pc
I like both and have gamed on both since the early '90s. I will never stop gaming on either platform and love them both. However I have been losing interest quite quickly as of late with console gaming due to the incredible selection of great games on pc that have been coming out lately. Does this mean I'll stop playing on my console? No but I now only game on my console maybe once a month and am on my pc every single day playing something.
The other factor that has pulled me strongly into the pc gaming camp is that pc games go on sale all the time for pennies on the dollar. Contrast that with prices for console games and the fact that sales are few and far between for console games means that I'm dumping my money where I can get the most return on investment the fastest.
I think that game-wise it is sad that we are stuck with the pc, because not having a specific system means the game developers cannot focus on a given platform.
Besides, nowadays many games are produced for all sorts of mobile devices, with different specs.
The Amiga ruled, no doubt about it. But it has been dead for three decades now.
