  1. Poll: Re: Which Total War game handles cavalry best?

    I'm probably extremely biased, nostalgic and forgetful about this, but without doing a proper test, the answer that comes to my mind is Medieval 2.

    In Empire I seem to recall cavalry feeling so...
  2. Re: Which Rome Total War is more historically accurate Rome 1 or Rome 2?

    1) Vanilla: 2, there is absolutely no debate.

    2) With mods: Hard to say. I haven't played 2's mods but I did contribute to Ancient Empires (I believe it's now a submod of Divide et Impera) and...
  3. Re: Discussion about future TW games, Medieval, Pike and Shot and Empire

    Why is Medieval 3 the next logical game? Seeing that the two last titles have been Warhammer and China, doesn't look like CA is going by "logic" :P



    This is my dream TW game (stretching it to...
  4. Sticky: Re: Warhammer I & II Mod Questions & Recommendations

    I finally got my GPU (after 10 years with an HD4870) and I'm enjoying Warhammer so far, but I really dislike the visual design of some Empire units, they feel too skinny and with just a bit of cloth...
  5. Poll: Re: Arena shutdown freebies: Which one would you choose?

    Doesn't even let me reinstall the game, so I guess the deal is just for those players who happened to have the game installed at the time of the announcement :)
  6. Poll: Arena shutdown freebies: Which one would you choose?

    Which one would you choose if you had none?

    (I'll do the poll multichoice because I imagine most people would just suggest Medieval 2 but most of us probably own it already, that way you can...

    Re: About the Total War Player

    Well I started playing the series in the year 2000 with Shogun: Total War (I was 13 back then). To provide context, I had also started getting into historical strategy gaming with Age of Empires 1...

    Re: Best one

    I find both (particularly The Witcher 3) good but highly overrated =)

    I imagine you are asking about TW games though. I haven't played since Rome 2 (my gpu, while more than capable, does not...

    Re: The Civil War 1861-1865

    I'm personally not interested at all in the Ameriacan Civil war, probably because of the burnout due to seeing it absurdly magnified and overrepresented in all media while major conflicts like the 30...
  10. Re: Top 10 Generals of All Time - Your list is valuable

    I don't want to make a top 10 because I'm rather ignorant about many key figures who usually appear in these ranks (Eugen of Saboy, Frederick the Great, Julius Caesar...) and because these lists tend...

    Though I recall hearing somewhere yesterday that they won't be able to show actual gameplay for about a couple weeks (so not until E3, I imagine).
  24. Re: Total War: WARHAMMER 2 – Lizardmen In-Engine Trailer

  27. Re: The Futile Polls thread: Next Historical TW game (after Warhammer)

    Fair enough. I was trying to avoid a wording in which someone would essentially tick all periods (for instance, as a Spaniard I could justify playing as a somehow relevant Spain-based faction all the...
  28. Re: The Futile Polls thread: Next Historical TW game (after Warhammer)

    Well, I'd say gaining independence is relevant enough (specially given the conditions, with a big war involving some of the big players of the time, like the UK, France or Spain), and the point of...
  29. Re: I can honestly think of no other time period or geographical setting for the next TW historical game...

    We can't really judge the validity or interest of a period or figure based on what "the masses" (so to speak) or some specific nationality know about them, if that were the case 99% of our games,...
  30. Re: The Futile Polls thread: Next Historical TW game (after Warhammer)

  31. The Futile Polls thread: Next Historical TW game (after Warhammer)

  32. Re: I can honestly think of no other time period or geographical setting for the next TW historical game...

  33. Re: I can honestly think of no other time period or geographical setting for the next TW historical game...

    It's not a simulator in the sense that it does not attempt to accurately recreate the exact military tactics of each period, nor the units or historical reality. It's an adaptation which gives the...

    Fair enough.

    Then again, the West =/= US and Britain.

  36. Re: What is the most historical accurate mod that have you played/seen in TW saga?

    It's much easier to be historically accurate the more recent the period is since there is juts much more information available, so my guess is that it would be one of the Napoleon TW mods. I only...
  37. Re: I can honestly think of no other time period or geographical setting for the next TW historical game...

    Exactly, though I insist that interest can be generated out of nowhere by the media. It's a matter of taking the risk, creating a quality product and knowing how to sell it.
