Proper Sunday gaming!
Yeah, I'd imagine big screen is the way to go all right.
Yeah the combat ramps up but ultimately the game itself remains simple. Really felt like the balance was good. At first the inbetween bits were a bit of a whimsical affair but after some of the later combat stages you're relieved you get to flounce around a Mario flavoured environment with relative ease
Thanks! I sometimes wonder if I'm just talking in to the void or spending too long on unnecessary minor details, so it's good to know at least someone gets something out of it.
Laconism, or the talent of using as few words as possible (sometime with intended humor) comes from Laconia, the name of Sparta region. A good example is the reply made to the ultimatum from Philip II of Macedonia to Sparta: 'You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city'. Their reply: 'If.'
I'm a bit confused as to how the math plays out, but that's hilarious nonetheless.Chopper wrote: ↑July 18th, 2019, 7:08 pmAbsolutely loving Field of Glory: Empires. I was initially playing as Ireland, and trying to conquer the British Isles. Nothing personal - one of my druids came to me with a dread prophecy, that of The Ascension of Boris, which he said was to take place in 2,500 years time (the game starts in 310 BC). He said it was my sworn duty to eradicate the Britones, and therefore change the course of history.
I know next to nothing about the genre, so how would you say this compares to something like Civilization?
I don't know! I have never been able to get into Civilisation - I wasn't gaming when the first several came out, and if you try and pick it up now, it's hard to get something that doesn't assume you have accumulated knowledge from previous versions. Plus, I hate video guides etc so that narrows it down too. I have started several games of Civ and there seems to be a phenomenal amount of waiting around waiting for stuff to build. But at the same time I didn't know what I was doing.
