Do Europa Universalis IV has gameplay improvements compared to EUIII?

I wish the sale was over. I already bought 12 games and gifted another 4. My wallet needs to recover.

 

Haha, and here I was thinking "what a crappy summer sale it's been". I haven't bought a single thing yet.

 

 

Well, I took a break from PC gaming for a while due to a broken computer and a huge work backlog. I'm playing catch-up. ^^

To some extent, it's a lot of smaller improvements, that when they come togehter make the whole better.. Their use of ideas are more original than in Eu3 so nations seem very differentiated now. Trade is also more complicated now with the new expansion.

 

I'd say it's more like a really really good expansion on Eu3 so at a discount it's worth it.

I thought maybe that train simulator thing would be fun. The user reviews are gnarly, though. "I have one thousand hours, this game sucks."  :blink:

Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Surgeon Simulator, Daylight, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Awesomenauts, Witcher 1 & 2, Mass Effect 1 & 2 (I've never actually played these), Worms Clan Wars, Outlast Whistleblower (technically a DLC but it's as long as the original game), Draw A Stickman Epic and Deus Ex Human Revolution.

Steam user reviews are mostly useless, or, at least, it takes some work to find useful reviews.  Sadly, Steam reviews are now basically dominated by childish dip****s making joke reviews and their little mafia upvoting all these useless joke reviews because LULZ or whatever.  It's now become a competition to make the funniest joke review and the actually useful reviews get buried several pages down because all the useless joke crap gets voted to the top.

I know, I need to ask the Odd Questions thread why the human tendency is toward stupidly childish.

I grabbed AssCreed 2, 3, Brotherhood, Revelations, Mount and Blade Warband, Wolf Among Us, Walking Dead Season 2, Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion, Papers Please, and The Bureau. So far I regret Papers Please and Sins of a Solar Empire., but that's only like 11 bucks worth of my purchases though. That 11 could have gone to Banished or Saints Row IV though.

I'm keeping an eye on Alpha Protocol. Just in case it drops below the 50% off before the end of the sale.. either way I'll add it to my digital library. Then I won't have to worry about digging my physical copy out in the future....

 

I did get tempted by Long Live the Queen when it was just under £2... Just for the fun of how many, many ways you can die.

Why do you regret Papers, Please? I really enjoyed that game a while back. :)

I got to the point where they started giving out identity supplements and at that point its more work than fun. It takes me so long to go over all the paperwork that I average getting 6-8 people through, and I need to get 11 through just to break even on rent, heat, and food. Terrorist days we go cold. it was only $4, but with the price of games, I expect to get more than an hour of playtime out of my $4, and I didn't with Papers Please, so I regret purchasing.

Hm, I can see how you would feel that way. I still quite enjoyed it myself, in fact the increased difficulty and frustration really increased the pressure of the decisions I had to make (Do I take the bribe so I can feed my family? If I don't, do I let one of them die?) and I thought it really added to the game experience. To each their own I guess. :)

Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced Edition -75%

 

IIRC I've seen some comments it was just as buggy mess at launch as the first game was, but any idea has it been patched well enough?

it's buggier than the original at GOG? I'm tempted to buy it, but if it's worse than the 2000 version...

 

also, Broken Age -66%, maybe I'll buy that instead


Let's Play The Temple of Elemental Evil (Complete)
Let's Play Neverwinter Nights and Hordes of the Underdark

Let's Play Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

I meant the first BG Enhanced Edition, it was a mess when it was released.

Wow, Wolfenstein 50% off.  I'm shocked a game that new got a discount that deep.

Just what I've been waiting for!

As I understood most people's objections are to them touching and adding content to the original games (iirc the cutscene graphics are replaced with new ones and they've added some new companions). I haven't personally tried it though and since I already owned the Gog version I didn't see any need to get the EE.
