News Comments > Endless Space 2 Announced
7. Re: Endless Space 2 Announced Jul 31, 2015, 21:31 Bitterbug
Playing the Cravers in Endless Space is an interesting change from a typical 4X game. They burn out their planets eventually so you have to keep pushing outward or die.
If Amplitude has learned from ES and EL then ES2 should be quite good.
A friend gave me GalCiv 3, and I couldn't get into it at first. Hopefully the patches will have improved the gameplay somewhat.
The Diplomacy AI was annoying as hell. On one turn a race would be sucking up to me, the next threatening me, and on the third suggesting we take out another. And it would continue like that all through the game.

This software is great. Small, and supports lots of formats. (Not just PDFs)
If it was a commercial product I'd buy it. But it's free.

Smallest and fastest PDF reader I've ever found.

Ricochet was part of the Half Life 2 pack years ago.
It came in at least the silver edition.

Good that it's amicable. Smart move too. Using an unoriginal turn of word like Wasteland as a trademark, defending it in court could mean the loss of the mark.
Using wasteland as a mark is as risky as using 'stump' or 'car'.

So for some people here it's "If you don't want to be harassed, don't be findable on the internet".

Must be the same people who believe that abstinence programs equal sex ed. That blame women who are attacked because they didn't dress conservative enough. And accuse people who are robbed of being irresponsible for leaving the house with things to steal.

Wow. There are some really clueless people here.
Imagine that some people dislike your post, because it's victim-blaming BS. So they find all your email addresses they can locate, they look up your LinkedIn profile, search for your home phone number, scrape your facebook page for the names of family members (and even though you had your security settings on, a change in policy left some of your posts public and you missed it).
Then those people start emailing you, people you know, your work, phoning, sending threats to you about your family or threatening your family directly. And you don't know which one is just an asshole or someone who is actually sick and dangerous.
And to see people justifying harassment of someone because a gun got nerfed? You shouldn't be allowed on the internet or to interact with other people.
As for the ages of the people who do it, the worst of the bunch don't seem to be minors. They're adults who feel justified and entitled in attacking others.

This sounds like Crush Deluxe. A game that came out around '97.
Blood bowl theme with various races, set in a dungeon with the ball hidden in a chest, and the other chests stunned you when you activated them.
There were racial perks, and I think teleporting but I'm not sure. Fun little game made by two brothers.

I'm thinking Dmitri's hit it on the nose.
Someone googled for tanks, got a bunch of cool reference images, and didn't have the sense to kit-bash various components from the source material, making direct clones instead.

This sounds like a mash-up of Blood Bowl and Knights. Knights is pretty fun, and you can download the remake of it for free. Just google 'knightsgame'. Has free online multiplayer and all. It's a bit antiquated, being a faithful remake of a 1994 game, but still fun.

Just because the guy is having fun with money he earned doesn't mean he's irresponsible. None of us have any idea what his plans are for the future. With that kind of money you could set aside a safety net for the rest of your life and still go on a spending frenzy in your youth that would provide memories for years to come. Meanwhile your investment manager protects you from going completely broke.

You should take her at least three times a week for one to two months. Start hitting the park at off hours when there's not a lot of dogs there and work up. If you find that she bonds with some of the dogs more quickly than others, ask the owners if you can take their dogs off to the side so the can play. After every positive interaction with other dogs, give her a treat.

How do you go about "making her aware"?

Reason i ask is I've got a shepherd who's fiercely loyal to us, the family. Whenever we take her and our other pup to the dog park, she growls and snaps at other dogs that approach us and try to be friendly.

How exactly do you disagree with him saying he got bored of games?
If he said "I'm hungry." would you disagree with that too?

If you're an Infocom fan, then check out Inform7, it's an engine for developing text adventures and it's amazing. *All* design is done by typing in plain English.

If you have a container that holds inventory you just define it by typing "Cardboard box is a container." And then you can lock it down or make it carryable, etc.

Now go forth and create!
