Q3 2010? August 13th, to be more exact. It isn't "set in stone", I guess, but that's the date for it in Gamersgate (linky).

Are there any good Diablo-ish (read: clones) out there that are recent? I've been hungering for some good bash 'em and loot gameplay lately.

I've got Sacred and Sacred 2, Torchlight, Titan Quest Gold. What I really want is a warrior wielding a massive two-hander, but that's even more rare. *sigh*

Try Din's Curse - I like it better than Torchlight. Torchlight is prettier (and loot-wise it's slightly better), but Din's Curse has more depth (varied quests, consequences, more classes/skills, etc).

News Comments > Sword of the Stars: Argos Navy Yard Patch
5. Re: Sword of the Stars Patch Jun 29, 2010, 11:56 Wolfox
 
Blue, the Complete Collection is already 1.8.0, and needs no patches. The 1.8.0 patch basically brings Argos Naval Yard in sync with most of the new features and fixes in the Complete Collection.

I agree with Tavillion: SotS has become my favorite 4X game. 1.8.0 also improves the AI, which can be quite cunning too. I recommend it to everyone that likes 4X and tactical combat.

@the_culture: yes, it's turn based, and combat is real-time (time-limited too, which is good). Actually, the combat is one of the best parts of the game, as it does feel more tactical than any other 4X I can think of. Fleet composition and formation are very, very important, as is movement and flanking. If you already have the game, you should definitely try it.

Crusader Kings is definitely my favorite Paradox game so far (of the Europa Universalis kind, that is). I'd *love* to see a Crusader Kings 2.

As it turns out, Dead Space is actually $15 in the sale for my region (Latin America). Still worth it for $15?

Is Dead Space worth 10 bucks? For that price, I'm tempted, even if I'm not a big fan of horror themed games...

I wonder if this is what we needed to see Lucasarts games on GOG. I do hope so.

I voted for Rome. This game really needs an expansion. And I'd love to play more greek factions.

Same here. It's my second favorite Paradox game. First is Crusader Kings, but I don't want an expansion for it - I want Crusader Kings 2.

Never played HOI series, is 3 worth a go or is 2 the highest point in the franchise?

Most Paradox games only reach their potential in the first expansion. Judging from the feedback on Semper Fi, it seems to be the case once again - so, if you like Paradox games, HoI3 would be a good idea - but don't play it without Semper Fi.

Looking forward to this. Trying to avoid the beta so I don't end up in a buggy game and hating it. I may cave in though. Anyone know if the fancy graphics have been turned on yet?

Not yet - the build with graphics enabled would be Beta 3, which was originally scheduled for April - but Beta 2 hasn't come yet, so Beta 3 will probably come late July if at all. Let's see.

Early reviews seem to be varying quite a bit - it seems to have that "gem in the rough" feeling to it, perhaps with quite a bit of rough.

Actually, "gem in the rough" describes pretty much all Obsidian games. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

This game sounds cool but I just can't seem to get into it. Does it get better past the demo?

Which demo (version/build) have you tried? Because AI War has been heavily improved since its original release, so if you tried the demo near the original release, you might want to try it again.

Fantastic game. As far as action RPG games go, it not only tramples Torchlight and both the Diablos for me, but it is one the games I play the most right now.

Indeed a fun game. It's like a 2D Team Fortress 2 with planes.

Praying's never done anybody any good.

Whether prayer works or not, I find myself praying all the time when playing TF2, as I usually play as a Medic.
