Theres a new Warhammer RTS game coming out, it goes back to the basic RTS game play style of base building and massive armies. That is what I want in an RTS game. none of this bullshit they keep coming up with and limited units pop cap crap.

We'll see if it sells enough to merit. RTS games have been a dying breed for a long time now for one major reason - they just don't sell like they used to. And this comes to you from someone who worked at Westwood Studios for a while.

Not trying to burst your bubble or anything, but in all seriousness, Petroglyph hasn't really made any quality RTS games in a long while, in fact not to many have. Act of Aggression and Act of War were really good RTS games.

And SupCom is the King of all RTS games. but no one makes RTS games like that, and thats what many of us RTS guy want in an RTS game bigger and longer matched games. not this tournament shit they make these days.

Yeah, SupCom is probably my fav game of all time, especially after the expansion.

There's still a community chugging along, too, with Forged Alliance Forever. There's even a slow but steady progression of balance tweaks and fixes (where possible for mods). It's actually in a pretty nice state.
I should fire Forged Alliance back up again. Finn's Revenge map was my favorite.

I miss the good old strategy games, Supcom1, DOW1, C&C Generals. I don't understand how these companies don't see what was successful in the past and build upon that when make a new strategy game, instead of this controller friendly MOBA style E-sport shit pile.
Try Forged Battalion!
I've looked at it before. the cartoonish graphics just didn't do it for me. Wish there was a demo or something to try the game. Hard to judge RTS from videos.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

Compared to RTT3 and even OTTD (free!) this game is abysmally simplistic and downright broken. (PS. I refunded)

To give you an idea, you HAVE to assign a platform to each line, every train is it's own line. Doing more than 4 trains on 2 platforms is a nightmare, there is no time-tabling, no chain signals, no pre-signals. You can't do terminus RO-RO nor drive-through stations.

This game is graphics and zero substance ;(

And also, maintenance sheds are in stations, so 5+ trains can stop for 3+ days in a station on their assigned platform, and there is no way to prevent this.... broken by design imo. in OTTD you could make depots have their own line and even integrate them into your pathing

Well that sucks. Thanks for the mini review. Saved me from buying this game.

Next up:
Gamers can get sued if spouses are watching the gameplay without having a second license for the game. Kids under the age of 5 will have to have half a license.
Dogs and cats do not require a license at this time.

Stunned How long is this game?

Don't worry, it's long enough for $25

I started a game when it was still in EA a while ago. The very last part wasn't finished back then. A few days ago the devs released an update to complete the game and make it v1.0.
Taken together the playthrough took me a little less than 100 hours but I did a lot of exploring (never got bored!).
Oh I see. Thanks for clarifying it.

Maybe this was popular back in WWII ??, after life & death out in the field , soldiers sat around making props to hide around the tents and play Sherlock Holmes !!??
Yeah, yeah I can see them doing that. When that got boring, they probably did some group knitting.

What really tickles my nerd side is that Elite Dangerous is based on scientific model of our universe and I can go to real planetary systems that actually exist in our Milky Way (yes, I do know that a lot of the systems were created by Star Forge, but they do keep up with NASA and new discoveries), really helps with the immersion and whole feel of the world I get to play in.

The fact that I can go and track down Voyager 1 and listen to the golden record is mind blasting on its own. It's not much, they didn't have to put it there, but they did and those kind of little things make this game awesome in my books.

Space trucking a side, there are lots of cool ED moments out there Allthumbsup

Yep I agree, I love all the attention to the smallest little details. Also the handling model of the ships is just awesome in Elite. The big ships feel like big ships and the small fighters feel like small fighters when you fly them.
No other space games gave me the same level of immersion as Elite does.
