Thanks guys. Maybe I'll try Planetside. Not sure how much I enjoy being part of a group anymore though.

Edit: Tried Planetside. Meh. DOn't know if it was due to ignorance, or play mechanics, but I was constantly spawning 800 meters away from the action, and had to spend lots of time running to where there were enemies and goals.

I'm looking for a strategy game that can be played where a team wins, like in Civ. My girlfriend loves Civ, and I'd like her to branch out. I want to play with her, but have gotten a bit tired of Civ. We need something where we can be on the same team, otherwise there is unneeded tension in the house.

I would definitely say that's on you. One of the things that I feel watered down the game is all of the tools they introduced to keep players in constant action. If you ever have to spend more than 30 seconds running to a fight, you probably should have redeployed or hit the instant action button. Sometimes there's not a lot of action on a continent and you need to switch, but you never have to deal with any significant amount of downtime between shooting stuff if you don't want to.

Coop strategy games... Age of Wonders 3, Endless Legend, Anno 2070, Stronghold series (I prefer Crusader 1), AI Wars (a bit dreary, hard for me to recommend), Age of Empires 2, Age of Mythology, Starcraft 2: LotV Archon mode (maybe... maybe not), Sins of a Solar Empire...

Maybe I'll give Age of Wonders 3 a shot. I was thinking about getting it anyway, and it might be on sale...

Which I should also mention - GOG is having their fall sale. Some good deals on bundles and such. I think the Myst games are on sale right now, AoW3 as mentioned above was on sale. I hope they do an encore sale thing soon, like Steam does.

In theory, the Macintosh version of Dark Forces is superior as it runs in a higher resolution; alas, it's apparently difficult to get working satisfactorily in an emulator, and there hasn't been much activity over at http://xlengine.com/ in a while.

Steam fall sale is here. Nothing really great to my eyes. Can someone explain why the hell I should bother with the cards and crap? It seems like it's an unnecessarily complex pain in the ass. Get some sort of crap in your inventory, which won't clear the new items icon for some reason, convert those into gems. Convert gems into booster packs. Open booster packs to get cards? Why the fuck would I even want cards in the first freaking place?

Profile backgrounds/badges. Emoticons. Steam Levels for a larger friends list and more free, randomly-distributed boosters. Five to twenty cents. (Sold a foil card for $2.61 once, post Steam cut.)

Auctioned games for gems previously. Might return. Imagines difficulty obtaining anything, however.

Oh look, a Steam sale! And I'm on vacation for 1.5 weeks! Maybe I'll check out this here Witcher thingy, and also pick up Might & Magic X since I'm curious and it's cheap.

Oh wait, maybe not.

It worked earlier today and I spent too much money. But I can't argue with 50% or more off!

Also I'm at my father-in-law's place, and his internet is *way* faster than mine at home. I'm finally downloading most of my Steam library. ^_^

I got Gemcraft for $2! Ok, it's basically the same as the gemcraft I played years ago, but that only had like half of the game available and you'd spend $5 if you wanted the remaining half. Also I realized that I grew bored of tower defense games for a reason. But it's so addicting...

I got a DLC for Borderlands: The Presequel and Big Pharma.

But I'll likely only be playing through the DLC campaign if anyone happens to be wanting to COOP it.

Is big pharma any better than infinifactory or factorio? Factorio isn't on steam yet, so I suppose you couldn't get it through the sale.

Anyway, I reeeeeally should grab undertale and KSP, but eh... Still have a bunch of other games I need to finish.

Ehh, the only thing I'm slightly interested in might be LISA the Joyful. Have you heard of LISA? Seems to have its fans.

I would be itching for a flash sale on Shovel Knight or Freedom Planet or UmiharaKawase or Shantae or quite a few other things if this was a normal Steam sale, but I guess that time is past. I have a bazillion other things to play while I wait for those to get cheaper.

I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking that this is another point on a long, slow slide to how Desura ended up.

I downloaded it on Friday as soon as I noticed it. It's pretty cool. It has some issues like totally wasted combat mechanics and equipment, but at least they don't get in a way too much, since it's pretty much Dialogue Trees the Game (Dialogue Forest?). Cut combat and item/resources and you get something akin to light novel essentially.

The detective story, characters and breadth of lore are amazing though. Plus replayability - I feel like there is material for 2-3 substantially different playthroughs.

My advise would be: Get a sheet of paper and write down codenames <--> names dictionary. The game is kinda sci-fi James Bond, where everyone has a numbered codename and it gets confusing as fuck in the beginning. You can then also use the sheet to write notes/comments for later reference too.

I also made mistake of reading info-console records on the crew before talking to them and later forgot everything...
BTW If you want to read everything on info-console your playtime will double. Not that it matters. The game is 95% dialogue anyway.

Some spoilery questions/discussion:
Spoiler:
WTF. Is Guardian Church supposed to be scientology? (or at least the cultists) I got really weird scientology vibe from them.

The James Bond IN THE FUTURE is really strong with this one: You essentially have licence to kill, codename, queen to serve, boss is an englishwoman, gadgets, insane intelligence network that's useless so that you can be awesome, etc.


Some bigger(?) spoilers:
Spoiler:
Fucking P4... They haven't written him annoying enough for me to really hate him, but damn is it enough to make me want to punch the guy. The game has a specific effect for you actually trying to do so with his character btw. so at least there is that.

There was an Alternate Reality Game apparently that is referenced in the game on few occasions. Kinda sucks if you weren't in the loop, but I guess it's a nice reason to replay the game after doing some digging on it.

The latest Humble Bundle has a bunch of semi-recent Firaxis games - $15+ for Beyond Earth, some DLC, and a discount for the Rising Tide DLC; $1 for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Sid Meier's Pirates, Civ III (complete), and Ace Patrol Bundle; Average+ for XCOM DLC (all of it that I know of), Civ IV (complete) and V (base) and Sid Meier's Starships, plus more to come

I don't know that I'd recommend Beyond Earth at that price, but if you don't have XCOM or Enemy Within yet, they're probably worth it (pretty different from UFO Defense, but a decent game if you're not expecting much fidelity).

Free steam copy of Tropico 4 for the next couple days. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/tropico-4-free-game

It's one of the great city builder games. It tends to get overlooked but I think it's must-play for the genre.

Dang, guess I missed this. It's showing for $3.74 right now, but considering I have Tropico 3 and have only put about 2 hours into it, I'll pass.

I have Tropico 5. It's basically "run an island like a brutal dictator". Even trying to be the most benevolent of rulers, you have to crack some skulls because your stupid citizens don't know what's best for them.

So, Tropico 4, it's a very mechanical city builder when compared to anything other than the Impression Games series. It's easy to get the wrong impression because it doesn't look like that sort of game. The series is much deeper than Sim City.

When you start an island, you have a small handful of people who are content for the moment. You also have some basic buildings to provide those people with unskilled work, but nothing yet that makes you any money. The farms are only a slight surplus of food for your population. So the first thing you need to do is establish some basic income, and there are a lot of options that depend on what sort of resources are nearby, what the trade prices are, or whatever you want. Just be mindful not to place the building on the good tiles, otherwise miners/farmers/etc won't have access to it.

By the time you have a few more immigrants and a couple of initial money makers set up, your people are getting quite upset. They want housing, they want churches, they want entertainment.There are also demographics of people who get extra upset when a need isn't fulfilled. Above what they want, they also need education for people to work these services. Unless you plan on importing the educated workforce (which pisses off nationalists I think).

The thing is, these buildings are all very expensive early on. They even drain your income and will take a portion of your workforce away from you. But you need them, because elections are coming. Losing an election means losing the game.

While you're keeping people happy, you're also progressing up the tiers of industry for increased export profits. Diversifying is also important. And there's rebels... and natural disasters... So you need even more buildings to deal with those things. A rebel coup is just as threatening as losing an election.

When you're making decent money, your citizens start to get upset about wages and refuse to work, so you need to bump them up. It's not as difficult as it sounds, you can set payments across the board by education level. You might want to keep the jewelry factory workers well payed though, so that you don't have to retrain anyone. if you have issues with no workers you might need more immigrants rather than higher wages. You'll probably want to open and close your borders several times depending upon the amount of jobs per people you have at any given time. My borders are usually closed in the end game.

And as another tip, garages are important for citizens to get to places, but they need another garage near their location to get back. So make sure that people don't have to walk home from work. If you zoom in or follow citizens it should be clear if there is a problem.

Are the last two Batman Arkham games (Arkham Origins and Arkham Knight) Any good on PC? they're on sale this weekend and I really enjoyed Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, but just never picked up the rest. I don't remember what kind of reception Origins got, I remember Arkham Knight was a fiasco on PC, but it's been a while since then, does anyone know if they've the fixed the issues it had at launch?

Arkham Origins isn't properly part of the Arkham trilogy, IIRC there was a different developer involved and the feel is a bit different. I never got far into it.
Arkham Knight is an excellent game but a monumentally terrible PC port. I can run it OK at triple-wide resolution with very occasional frame rate drops on a 970, but lower end systems really struggle. It was pulled from steam for a while soon after release, it was that bad.
