Sheesh. It's all about compromise. My partner doesn't mind me playing video games or lurking forums, as long as it doesn't get in the way of doing stuff together or getting out of the house once in a while.I don’t know all the details but I know he was getting up at 4 in the morning so he could play it before going to work, and then played it in the evenings until stupid o’clock at night.
When I first read this, I thought it said Halo Master Chef (note to self...time to get eyesight checked).I downloaded Halo Master Chief files from Steam. This could be what I need to replace Half Life 2 in my gaming life.
It is one of those games that's fun with mates but not so much with strangers. Until you forget to set a turn timer and have one mate who takes 15 mins to micro their apostles through your land! I had a mate who wanted to play only duel sized pangea maps where he was Sumeria so he could war cart spam and win in 10 turns. For him that was fun.Yeah, it's reminiscent, in that way, of Civ II some time ago.
Going fairly well.
I'm oddly annoyed that there's a sale on the DLC (not huge, about a quarter off) as I'm still getting to grips with the game and playing on standard (Prince) difficulty so I'm not sure if I want the DLC (yet, at least). Sale ends on the 17th.
Just took my third capital, so I'm nearly halfway there. Got Aztecs, Persians, Arabs, and the Polish to go. But first, my frigate fleet is going to become a battleship fleet.
I've racked up massive warmonger penalties but nobody's actually attacked me yet, though I've been denounced a lot (which is fair enough, I've invaded everyone I could find on the same continent). Unsure if that'll last.
I’ve been doing the same this last week (PS4) but it’s such a huge step up from the 2008 version I’m struggling with understanding city placement and all the extra facets.Played an hour or so of Civ VI (bit more, but that was tutorial stuff).
Rather more stuff than I remember in Civ II... I've already slightly cocked up a city position, although Ravenna's placed nicely. Rome ended up immediately between two barbarian encampments, but weathered the storm nicely. Control scheme could be a shade better, perhaps (a button to toggle through cities would be good). But mostly enjoying shambling my way through things.
