My experience as well. Pretty tough trying to pull off Welch independence when you got stack after stack of the English invading.

That would be pretty realistic, don't ya think?

Mercenaries are pretty overpowered. You should try to do it with alliances.

Infiltrate foreign kingdoms with your kin or expand your duchy by marrying the daughters of other Dukes and assassinating their heirs. The game gives you so many options.

Absolutely, and thats part of the fun. Although i'm not sure that Mercenaries drying up as is (atleast in vanilla) is as its intended or should be?

I keep wanting to get into this game but the overwhelming amount of DLC (and lack of DLC packs to even get started somewhere) is extremely daunting. i don't want to buy in and find out later that I need to spend upwards of $100 on DLC to get balanced gameplay.

Can anyone here recommended a "you need these DLC's to start" list for CK2?

I've actually only played (and enjoyed) Vanilla. I'd like to hear some Blues user reviews as well.

I think my biggest issue with CK2 (and I don't know if an update ever fixed it), was that if you were a smaller kingdom... to protect yourself in terms of military you had to rely on mercenaries. However the game did not refresh the stock of mercenaries available over time, so eventually you just get stomped by a large nation because there's no more way to hire additional troops even if you had a relatively strong economic engine.

This game is the gift that keeps on giving.

I cannot think of a reason why they would make a CK3 when this platform seems capable of so much more than the initial (perfectly awesome) design as they keep expanding. I think I would have preferred more expensive DLC with unit/ruler graphics and associated tunes bundled in but hey, whatever. I'm definitely due for a play through soon though, and the council was already one of my favourite parts of the game so this content drop seems like it will be more than worth it.

My experience as well. Pretty tough trying to pull off Welch independence when you got stack after stack of the English invading.

The problem for SD is most of their fan base comes from LA so they stand to lose the most by not moving. Having said that I hope they stay, i hope the raiders stay, and i hope my LA Rams resurface

Ark is in alpha and you guys want optimizations and SLI profiles....wow

Yeah well the EA experiment continues... Some of these games are just living in EA and it's hard to get a feel when it will be done. So since they are doing these extended EA's, people are starting to ask for some finished game things. I will only EA the most anticipated games I want anymore and currently there are zeron on that list. I'll let the rest just sit there an stew until done, whenever that is. Some I don't think will ever be done.

One game they just continue to do sweeping changes to everything. I liked beta version 1.0, wish they would have just finished that and they could be playing around with the current stuff as a new game later on.

So your complaining about the constant updates on an early access game... OKKKKK!

As long as they don't slow down my connection while they are watching me, what do I care? I got nothing to hide, and definitely no internet activity of any great interest. I mean, look, I'm on Bluesnews for cryin' out loud. I'm sure my web habits would bore any government watchdog to tears.

Nothing to see here, boys. Move along.

Oh ok. So you'd be cool if we installed cameras all over your entire house and monitored everything you do everywhere you go 24/7, right?

1$ the first minute, 2$ each additional minute...

A bit of a change of topic, but I figured I'd warn folks off of a product that I recently bought and expected to really like:

http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/SYBER_VAPOR_K

It's a Cyberpower Steam machine with i7 and a GTX970 - looks great and I ordered one for my kids and me, for gaming on the TV. Only thing is, the cooling on this thing is woeful and the PSU is only 450W, Mine blew up about an hour after I turned it on, and has now been RMA'd.

I may just harvest the replacement for parts, or exchange or return it. Apparently other buyers are having similar issues.

1325$ for a 700$ computer....ewwww

Glad Polaris is shaping up if only to keep Nvidia and its pricing on Pascal honest.

Lost by one point in the spread league. Was a fun and interesting year. Congrats to the winners, i look forward to next year!

I thought for sure you were going to snatch it from me yesterday, the day was going so poorly. Forgot that the lowest week was dropped!

That was the plan...but wow this week so many upsets. Looks like we both tanked this week but you squeeked by! Congrats you earned it! I'll be back next year for sure!

well some places don't even air the show from what I've heard, and those places have many downloads.

Seems to me if they made it $1 per episode and accessible they would be $14.4 million richer.....

Cant you do just that from Apple itunes? Looks like a few bucks per episode..

I get the MS hate, probably the least popular company on Blues. For me however i prefer wp's calendar/office/email apps. The camera's are top of the line (atleast the high end nokia lumia's, carl zeis optics, good low light pictures etc). I mean the 1020's camera which is two years old still blows away any other camera phone on the market from apple or samsung etc. It also doesnt drive you insane with music like itunes/apple does as its similar to android in that respect. I dont really use it for anything else than those functions as i detest playing games on anything but my pc. Its also nice that it feels smooth navigating even all the way down to a crappy 520 with minicule specs. As opposed to a slightly aged iphone or android which gets more sluggish feeling with each new update. Continuum also has me excited, i appreciate the integration and direction.

I have a 1020 (waiting on the 1020 successor), my best friend has a 950xl and my wife has a 520 (she just will not let me upgrade her cause she likes it... pff... women ). All my other friends are split 50/50 between iphones and samsungs. I've had a samsung galaxy s3 and a few motorola droid's before that and one iphone 3gS before. I guess you could just say i've gotten tired of them, maybe thats the real reason behind me digging the wp's.

To each their own i guess though. I get it, MS is lame and evil and steals your info while Apple and Google are awesome and ... steal your info..If its seriously between Apple, Google, or Microsoft in stealing my info i'd rather it be M$. Guess i'm crazy like that.

I'm sure they'll get over it. All four of them.

Winphones are pretty popular in Europe. I actually prefer them to Android/Iphone's as i've had those for years and they both just feel stagnated. If you want every app in existence they certainly arent the right choice, but for business oriented people they are much better to work with, atleast in my experience.

Can't wait for Pascal. I have SLI'd GTX 780s (previously had SLI GTX 470).

I want to get rid of my SLI setup and get monster Pascal. Hopefully GP100/GP110 releases out of the gate, and not GP104/GP114 as the top sku. If that's the case I'm likely waiting until near the end of the year for full GP100/GP110.

Thats my thinking as well, When pascal gets released go for broke on the top end card. I think Nvidia should release the 100v first then the cheaper 104's after, since thats how they've done it before.
