This thread could have done with some NSFW warnings by some posters man. Thankfully I just use my phone to browse when not home, jeez. And who cares if Alison Rapp was moonlighting - I'm surprised people focus on whether or not she was a 'sex escort' (there are other kinds of "escorts"). She said she did it to help pay off her College Debt and that right there is understandable, given the huge, student debt bubble. Most post-graduates aren't even working in the field they studied in, working as waiters/waitresses. People sure like to dig up info on people's lives though - holy hell. I wish her luck on trying to find a fun company to work for (I mean Nintendo sounds pretty fun man), seeing as employers scour google these days.

News Comments > Combat Mission: Final Blitzkrieg Invades

4. Re: Combat Mission: Final Blitzkrieg Invades Apr 15, 2016, 19:18 Task
 
Found it: Battle For the Reichstag (for CM:BB), for some reason it did not receive much attention when it was made way back in 2006, but the Author did painstaking research to model how the area looked, what units were used on both sides, etc.

There are over a thousand scenarios, made by the devs and fans for that game (and CM:AK which is also really good). It's tough to nail down all the other favorites I had (Buckow Forest is another good one, as well as the Blowtorch scenarios)

These new Combat Missions are pretty good too, but I haven't stayed invested in them for some time. They are obviously very niche and as such cost quite a bit (like Flight Sims) for the "complete" editions for each Theater of WW2.

Interesting. I hope someone recreates the famous custom scenario from CM:BB, Battle for The Reichstag - one of the most tense battles I have ever played in any turn-based game ever.

Off topic, but yeah Squares first leap into voice acting is cringe worthy when I went through 10 recently. Auron and Lulu's were ok - I just wish Square would include the Japanese dub in their voice acted games. Anyways I stuck with it for the turn based battles and story, and skipped some of the hair-pulling, ludicrously bordering on impossible secret challenges.

Well I never played it and many people say it was substantially the best FF game... we'll see.

I can say that FF9 generally gives one 'feel good vibes,' with its unique art direction and music. Substantially the best though? I don't know - honestly that depends on 'where' in this huge series an individual started with. Some people swear by FF1-4 for instance, and so on with the others for different reasons (like me swearing by FF:Tactics as the best 'strategy' FF for its high difficultly).

FF9 is definitely one of the substantially more 'whimsy' ones of the new "FF in 3D" games, like FF+Disney=9. It has slight nods to games before 7, but not completely. Its also VERY easy and not that hard of a game to understand and complete, so its a good starter FF.

Back in the day I completed it without a guide (the one that was released for it was atrocious), which were the days before detailed online fan-guides became more common. Looking at the achievement list though there are things I have never heard about (missed a lot secrets and optional challenges).

To conclude, yes its worth it, its very casual for an FF game so don't expect any deep, complex strats like the other games, but has a nice stereotypical Fairy Tale story with a fun cast of characters. Although if you have a backlog no real point in getting it unless you intend to play it straight away. I could go on and on here about fav aspects of all the ones I have played, but that would be a huge essays worth of stuff.

Well, one could always mod the game to replace mention of "KPA" with something else more plausible, and change flag or insignia on the enemy skins (like a u.s. flag next to a death's head or something).

Seems like it might be fun though, at least.

The only Fords I ever had the displeasure of owning were from the 90s (none a mustang) and they were trash. Terrible engines.

I was joking in response to what Horroscope posted.

Ah, I see. My other point still stands though that this game gets 3 outta 5 shrugs from me.

Wow, PCs are no good anymore. Perhaps I should get a console.

Or just have some of each like me, but this game Quantum Break doesn't even look that interesting after watching a Let's Play, at least to me. More like Quantum Who Cares. I can understand for those that did want to try it on PC, but it just seems like an average romp linear game.

I'm amazed WoW is still going - most of these games just keep dragging it out, but they are losing numbers albeit slowly in these MMOs. And frankly for all the money people put into this probably could have financed KoToR 3 (ie, something better).

I thought DA:I came out right in the middle of GG?

The transgender character in DA:I was just so stupidly introduced though. You're talking to Krem, and suddenly, literally out of nowhere, come 3 options that basically say "Have you always known you were a man?" and "when did you know?". Something to that effect. It came out of nowhere. Krem had never once even alluded to it, and suddenly your inquisitor bam knows about it.


That's basically the issue I think that people have with the writing in this Baldur's Gate expansion. I haven't played Dragonspear, but I was certainly looking forward to it - but the issues of the bugs held me back, but now there is the issue of the writing. Some people posted the screenshots of the dialogue tree of this whole thing and it has a 'similar' issue as that DA:I example you are referring to.

I think the issue itself is being drowned out by people puffing up their chest on both sides. From what I'm reading, and what some are saying, its the writing itself that is not up to chops. Perhaps that's mean to say, but I've seen better writing in other Infinity Engine games or other RPG's, for that matter. It means they, BeamDog, should improve upon that if they want to be making games that will have lasting appeal like BG1/2. This one thing being pinpointed as an example - unfortunately it has to with a transexual issue, so that opens up all kinds of people to trounce on it. 1st) YOUR character, out of no where, asks "Why their name is weird" - There are hundreds of weird names, come on that's not a good conversation starter down that tree, so I see exactly what people are now talking about in reference to the writing needing to be improved 2nd) Right away the shop keeper reveals they are a woman now, and why, etc. - no one would actually do this, at least in our reality given the social perceptions of this (one poster on the BeamDog forums, who is transexual pointed out this exact issue). In other words, if they wanted to put something like this in, why not let it be a companion? Then after some time and that person feeling more comfortable around your characters they reveal their past and who they were before, etc. Some random NPC going "Oh hi, here's my life story info dump, k bye" - No, that's not good writing. It feels forced.
3rd) They can introduce better within Lore, transexual/transphobia-etc. can and does exist far differently in Fantastical Realms like D&D and others than our reality (there is no magic in our reality, people can not literally change their DNA, in fantasy realms, VOILA they can - Good, now make a joke about how the new Woman can't stand the bloody periods and time of months, or back problems if they wanted big boobs; or the woman-to-man can't stand "surprise erections" - the struggle is real folks).

Also there are other screenshots posted where a Drow talks about why they are making the journey (and the writer seems to not realize Drow are Evil, because they are) and also complaining about "male drow TAKING" them or something. From what I understand, Drow in D&D are Matriarchal, and "choose and discard males freely" so the FEMALES are the ones "taking" the male or ordering them around. Found this screenshot which is totally not about drow or other stuff, it's just kind of boring dialogue choices "A plot I would very much like to be a part of" - K)

So, yeah, the writing. All of it. Not much else for me to say on this topic other than I hope BeamDog's writers improve on their prose and dialogue choices (also the bugs, that's a given and then I will be more than happy to give it a go).
