Securom is still there... all the patch does is to make it easier to revoke an activation. So, it's your call.

According to Pyro studios the overstap to 3D a bad choice was.

Fredrik has always seemed like a good guy to me, so I'd chalk this up to him wanting to get the fan base excited -- as mentioned, Paradox has a very devoted fan community -- and giving them a friendly little competition.

Quoted for truth.

Nice joke, Blue. As usual. ;-)

BTW, I wonder if D3's monk will ever say "I'm a freaking blur, here!"

The following list is more detailed, showing which titles support the hardware implementation, and which ones do not:

Still, much more than two.

In the end, I think 2 games support the damn thing, and do so poorly.

More than 2 for sure:

Other than that, I agree with you.

Actually, the latest patches removed most of the problems with the interface. As for simplistic gameplay, that's a matter of opinion; it's simpler than, say, Patrician 3, but I guess the point of the game was to have simpler, equal measures of trading and combat, in which it succeeds (mostly).

It's on Steam already (kind of, since there seem to be a few bugs on the game page):

Actually, they are available on Gamersgate, though it's not entirely clear how to purchase them (the coins value seems to indicate a $1,99 value). Links:

Blue, thanks for the clarification, even though I already knew that, since I own both games.

All: don't get me wrong, I'm not boycotting Battlefront for this action alone... but this particular one pushed me over the edge. I've never liked the way they treat their customers, and this last action was the nail on the coffin. I'd rather give my money to more customer-friendly companies.

The patch killed sound for most (if not all) people. I'm sure they will fix it, but, right now, it's tower defense in outer space.

$5.00 dollars for a patch to get your game working? That is it. Battlefront will NEVER see my money again.

I used to play EU1/2 but the AI troop ping-pong in EU3 drives me insane. I'm thinking about picking up Victoria and/or Crusader Kings because they seem more focused on nation-building than warfare. Anything I should know about these games before I buy?

I haven't played much of Victoria, though it's arguably the most complex of the Paradox Grand Strategy line.

Crusader Kings is the most "different" of the Paradox games, since it's actually focused on your dinasty. Though you do administer the provinces you control, it's significantly streamlined when compared with EU, since the focus is on your dinasty and its relations with other dinasties.

Combat is also streamlined - you don't train armies, you mobilize them when needed from your provinces; the army composition depends on the balance of the different social strata in your province. If you have more nobles in a certain province, you'll have more knights in the mobilized army, but nobles don't pay tax, so that province wil give you less money. It's a fun balancing game.

In combat, you'll see armies retreat here and there, but it doesn't feel as "ping-pong" as in EU3 - it feels more natural, somehow.

Great sale. Crusader Kings (with the expansions) is one of my favorite games; all the Europa Universalis games (and its "spin-offs" like Victoria and Hearts of Iron) are pretty good, each in its own way. Sword of the Stars is my favorite 4X game (with all the expansions). Mount & Blade is pretty cool, though a bit too open-ended to some, in a "Morrowind-ish" kind of way.

I also have Elven Legacy and Galactic Assault, but I haven't played them yet (bought both on sales a while ago), but I hear they're good (or I wouldn't have bought them in the first place).

The bad thing about those sales is that I bought Europa Universalis: Rome Gold last week. If I had waited for another week, I'd get it for half the price. But that's life...

So far I still think that Titan Quest and its expansion are the kings of hack/slash RPG action.

For me, it was a tie between Titan Quest (with IT) and Sacred Gold (the first one - I haven't played the second), until I found Depths of Peril. If you like Action RPGs, give it a chance; you might like it too.

I was hoping they would release their classics on GOG.com. But Steam? Thanks, I'll pass.

Considering that Friday is a holiday, and most weekend sales are announced on Thursday, getting this announcement a day early kind of makes sense.
