    Re: Euro Truck Simulator

    I do play it occasionally, but that's already all there really is to say about it. It's not exactly a game with a lot of potential for discussion... :hmm:
  2. Re: Book suggestions - 30YW , Northern War?

    I can also recommend Peter Englund's works on the 30YW. Very detailed, well contextualized, and comfortable to read.
  3. Re: Does anybody here still play World of Tanks?

    Used to play it together with the other TWC'ers from the EU clan branch, but almost everyone I know of just stopped playing it regularly at some point.
    Personally, I switched over to Warthunder when...
  4. Re: What does a good Base building RTS need to be great?

    I don't think it would be. If some of them dwell on "sinful" traits and behaviours like gluttony, it would even make sense for them to gather food. Depends entirely on what concept you want to use...
  5. Re: Im Looking years now for a free game with dwarfs!

    Dwarf Fortress has it all. But you have to forget about the looks, and the gameplay is nothing like Skyrim etc.

    It's been a while since I've played it, but it used to be a good game back then. If you play it in F2P mode, then you can make decent progress unlocking new parts of the...

    Yes, it's a bit wonky at times. Especially at Tier 5/6+, or when there's a single player in the team dragging everyone upwards.

  15. Re: War Thunder - F2P WW2 plane "MMO" from the makers of Wings of Prey

    It should be, but as far as I can tell, it's not modelled as such in the game. That's why I have the suspicion that it's just a bad translation and should mean fuel tanks. :hmm:

    Does it? Except for the barrel shroud and some details in the design (magazine well design, wooden grip, longer folding stock or smaller gun), it looks very similar to an MP40 to me. :huh:

    The PvE missions change with time. You might get the same mission several times in a row, but then it will switch to a different one at some point. And from what I've seen so far, there's already a...

    No, they were not free from blame at all. If you look at how they handled the Congo Free State / Belgian Congo, they were just as ruthless and exploitative a colonial power as the others.

    Re: How historically accurate is HBO's Rome?

    It was very-well received and scored a good number of awards, so it didn't fail for that reason, at all. The reason it got cancelled was that it was simply far too expensive to keep it going.
