  1. Re: Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition announced

    Tweaks are nice. Tweaks are what Rome II needs more than anything. A bunch of little tweaks to fix all the little problems.
  2. Re: Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition announced

    Yes, that is the just of it. I never played the original MTW, so I am quite eager to see how these new mechanics work out. It's how I imagined civil wars would work in Empire.

    Oh, no, don't misunderstand me. I was meaning features specific to immersion. I like a lot of new features in Rome 2, the combined naval battles, the province system, faction politics, consistent...

    Sticky: Re: Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition announced

    Yes, that's why I have made sure to say it is my opinion, and that Rome II is a good game, mechanically.

    But objectively, it lacks features that all previous games had. Small things, here and...

    That's more what I meant though. Super Mario Bros. isn't a game to get immersed in. You're not meant to be drawn into a deep and detailed world, with it's own lore and history. You're meant to jump...

    Oh yes, I don't doubt that is so. But the AI is incredibly stupid, so it took several years to rebuild it's broken settlements, including ports and happiness buildings. Which meant that, in that...

    Sticky: Re: Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition announced

    No, it's pretty ok so far as games go. All the different parts work about as you would expect them to, with some more minor problems now. Except naval battles, which are still pretty terrible.

  8. Re: Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition announced

    Yes, they will though. Because there's no new content, beyond the new free-LC. And the words "Emperor Edition" in your Steam library. It's all old content, that was released for free, and if you...

  10. Re: Total War: ROME II Emperor Edition announced

    Yes. But you are bolding the wrong part of the quote.

    There is no more original version of Rome II, because everyone has the Emperor version now.

    I guess this is a good thing, but I am not interested in mini campaigns. I haven't bought any, and I've never played any in older games. At this point, it feels like the game, Rome...

    Re: A New Buildings System?

    That's not true actually!

  13. Re: Land and Sea - When has this ever happened to you?

    This is a feature that really seems like it would be much more useful in a Victorian-era game.

    But even then, it seems like it will be very uncommon.

    This reminds me of the port defense...

  15. Re: A great siege battle ruined by... NEEDLESS TORCHES! Final appeal to CA.

    It was just a scripted battle, I am sure, but honestly, seeing some siege towers magically appear would still be better than watching a bunch of slingers burn down a gigantic metal gate.

  21. Re: CA, I miss Guard mode and being able to order Pila thrown.

    Potential for what? I don't want multiplayer. I have no interest in multiplayer. The very idea of adding a human player to the game is contrary to what I want out of the experience.

    Sure, you can...
  22. Re: CA, I miss Guard mode and being able to order Pila thrown.

    But the Legionaries were a jack of all trades. Fall of the Samurai showed that asymmetrical warfare is a viable option in Total War games. No one complained about the balance there, though one side...
  23. Re: CA, I miss Guard mode and being able to order Pila thrown.

    Oh no, Im not suggesting a return to the old system. Keep the current system, and just allow them to throw pila while standing still.

    I don't think that's very unbalancing. I mean, they should...
  24. Re: CA, I miss Guard mode and being able to order Pila thrown.

    Right, but that's kind of the point.

    The Roman legions were incredibly dangerous due in large part to their ability to perform multiple combat roles in the heat of the moment. They were some of,...
  25. Re: I used to think fixing politisc was key to fixing the game - now I'm not so sure

    I agree with you in the sense that, just adding it back as it was is not the best option. I enjoy the auto-replenishment, but as it is right now, it's far too... Unrealistic. Regional auxiliaries are...

    Re: Rome 2 incendiary PIGS

    Sometimes it seems like CA is trying to purposefully turn us all against SEGA so that they can split off and steal all of our business.

    Beasts of War 2 just might achieve that.
