Interesting...I've not seen this one before. I may have to look into it.


I wasn't a fan of endless space. I found it to seem too much like Armada 2625. For what it's worth.


Have you played Masters of Orion (or Moo 2), by chance? You fast-posted my edit where I mentioned I thought it sounded like that game.

I've not played Armada 2625.

I dearly love the well-made Rogue-like games (I actually still play the original Rogue from time to time). I briefly looked at the Wiki for this, but it didn't explain things very well...how does the whole "pass on to your kids at death" thing work?


It's nothing so cool as actually passing something on, but when you die (which you will over and over and over again), you will be offered the choice of three "kids". These kids will be random classes of ones you have unlocked, and will have random feats/perks/whatever you want to call them attached to them, up to two. Most of them are aesthetic, such as making the game 2d (you are flat so when you turn backwards it makes you or enemies look like a paper mario), some are bad, and some are good. Each kid will also be assigned a random spell that ranges from useless to awesome. Each time you die you can swap into new gear you have unlocked to customize your class a bit better, and also attach runes to the gear to give some added powerups. It looks cheesy, but is really super fun.

GOG.com is selling Master of Orion 1, 2, and 3 cheap right now.

Also for Steam, Xcom Enemy Unknown is 9.99, and well worth the buy if you like tactical squad base combat against aliens.

Yeah, I saw that. I think MOO 2 is the only good one of the three though, and I already have that one.

So is Endless Space along the lines of MOO, or is it significantly different?

I too prefer Alpha Centauri. Of the Civs, I probably like #3 the best.

Rugby Challenge is a fun game. Even for people who don't know rugby at all (the tutorial is very good).

I find it hard to expand your army, your Empire, and your tech at the same time, and If you optimize lets say on expansion through settlers, you are likely to get taken over by said neighbors (CPU's) which magically manage to do all of it at the same time :roll: Either that or I'm not playing the game right.... 8-[

Got the new NCAA 14, some new features in this one, like Ultimate Team and the spread option offense.

I've been playing FEZ, and boy, is it deep. If you really, really like puzzle games, FEZ is for you. It's sort of MYST-esque in the fact that there's not much conveyance on how to solve the puzzles: it's almost all inference and noticing clues that are, really, in plain sight once you see them. The 2D in a 3D world was fun to mess around with and the soundscape is amazing.

Discount on Steam for $5, I believe.

Also to add on, even if you edit your roster to be 99 across the board (highest you can go), the game will still punish you for either not reading the defense properly or letting a guy get open on offense when you're playing defense.

Though with Road to Glory, they added a feature (along with the whole Heisman thing) where you can play as a player already on a team's roster and go until their senior year. Still can't play as o-line or tight end (kicker and punter as well).

Oh, and they finally implemented it so really stron d-linemen can push o-linemen backwards. That's something the game had been lacking for a while.

FEZ is a nice game to dink around with a couple of minutes each day. I'm saving it for some airport play right now. Ha. After playing it though for a time, I got the point where I was playing another game and for a moment I tried to use the FEZ controls to turn the world map. Ha.

Anyone watch EVO over the weekend? The Melee tournament in particular was awesome, I think I'll be picking that up again. Also, prior to this weekend I had not ever seen of (let alone played) King of Fighters, but that game looks beautiful.

I like to play as the Scientists (I don't remember their formal name). That way, the tech thing sort of gets taken care of.

But yes...the CPU players definitely get some heavy advantages with the higher-end difficulty levels.

I watched it. I only watched Mortal Kombat, Injustice, and Street Fighter games though.
