Oh hi. Sorry, I didn't see you there

 

Since you're here already I just so happen to have an extra copy of Civ VI that I'd be willing to give you. Not for free mind you but in exchange for something else. I hope I'm not asking for too much but maybe I am, I dunno.

 

Anyway, I'll give you this game if you agree to write up an in depth review of your first few days playing it. Just circle yes or no... or PM me

 

Civilization games drive me crazy for the amount of cool stuff they do...but also for how they frustratingly miss out on even bothering to try to simulate other strategy and historical elements that I've come to expect after playing other turn-based strategy games like Total War and Europa Universalis. :(

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Screw it, trying to write a decent in depth review is a small price to pay for a new Civ game. Sign me up if no one took it yet.

We want proper screenshots in the write up that illustrate the points made in the review or the sexist exploitation of women in the genre.

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

Writing reviews is the path to the dark side.

Also need to point out the damaging influences of whiteness and patriarchy.

Well, first impressions, disappointed in the lack of white male leaders. The Patriarchy is woefully underrepresented. I went with Frederick Barbarossa of the German Empire in order to maximize whiteness and Patriarchy. Loading screen and.... Sean effing Bean is the narrator?! As much as I liked Leonard Nimoy in Civ 4, this is even better.

 

Ok, first order of business. I go into Graphics settings to try to change it to windowed full screen and all my graphics options are locked. So I exit to main and fix that so I can write this as I play. Load times when starting a new game or loading are awful. But its been that way since CivIV so I can deal with it.

 

Start the game, freaking tundra, screw that heading north. Woah... I can't cross rivers, thats going to make things interesting... ok, now I can cross the river... I'm confused. So I found my capital of Aachen on some wheat after taking the roundabout way, my warriors are off exploring. One thing I miss about the square grid is using the number keys to move. I start building another warrior for defense and research animal husbandry to take advantage of the sheep and cows around my city. Looking at the map now, it appears that there are rocks in rivers indicating where you can cross. I actually like that.

 

Met my first other civ, the English. I got a boost to researching Writing by meeting them. Thats kind of interesting. The civics mechanic is kinda cool too. The idea that it is separate from research is interesting, now I've built my first builder and am grabbing up the surrounding resources. Interesting that the first time you develop a resource you get bonuses to research. Developing my rice gave me a bonus to researching irrigation, and my cows gave a bonus to riding. Hrmm, I don't know if I like this... so improving tiles is instantaneous, but workers can only improve 3 times then they are used up and you have to build another.

 

I am kinda terrible at this. Barbarian cavalry just looted one of my farms and I'm still stuck with warriors. Built the Hanging Gardens though. I like that it shows it being progressively constructed on the map. Its still early in the game and turns are taking forever. This was one of the problems I had with Civ 5 as well. It shouldn't take this long when each civ still only has one city.

 

Vikings declared war on me right after conquering the nearest city state, so I'm moving on that. The river crossing mechanic makes war quite different. I have a chariot moving almost all the way to London to cross the river so he can come up around the back of Jakarta (the city state), since only one unit can get through the mountain pass at a time.

 

Screenshots can be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/oerwinde/screenshots/?appid=289070

 

So far overall I like it more than Civ 5, but I still like Civ 4 better.

Son of a... damned treacherous English. We were friends, had open borders, she liked my devotion to tech and that I was on the same continent as her, then she flooded my lands with units and declared a surprise attack.

The Japanese just did that to me.  Thankfully I have a lot of city-state friends and they kept them busy while I mobilized an army.

On the really random chance anyone doesn't have a copy of Sid Meier's Pirates, I've got a spare key if someone wants it.

It's free to play in browsers. On Steam it costs a little and comes with some of their in-game cash to make up for it.

same with Westerado, I believe.

someone will get lucky tonight, really good games on that list! 

 

Most titles are unfamiliar to me, though, I'll spend the next hour googling them, and considering my luck, the ones i'll like will have been taken already when I finally get around to requesting them from Shady  :biggrin:

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.

Apparently I still have Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World to give away. There's just no interest here in cheesy no budget JRPGs. You guys need culture.

 

Also Cogs.

I can't play breath of death vii without playing through the first 6 games  :disguise:

I don't believe you buy all these guys. I think you are some sort of charity bot from the future, spreading games before the great VG Crash wipes out the digital world. Or something.

most of these are from "pay what you want" charity bundles. you get 6 to 10 games at the price of one. your post does have the word "charity" in it, so you're half correct ;)

I get the monthly bundle but I rarely like the games in them but I rarely like most games these days. I'm getting old. I also get the other bundles if there is a game I like or a charity that I want to support

 

I'll also occasionally buy games that are ridiculously cheap to give as gifts and the left overs I post here
