no you gave me CK2 because you OWED it to me.

I mixed up micro transactions with newbies "micro DLC" comment, which is right in line with what you are saying.  Seems stupid and I think I will pass.  My friend has been "retired" for like 3 years so he has all the time in the world for this.  I don't

Was that a joke? I didn't owe you anything. I bought you Left 4 Dead 2 as part of a bet. Otherwise, this friendship has been completely one sided. I want my Macbeth account back. Get on that.

Oh I thought you gave me CK2 because of that bet.  I got decent mileage out of L4D2.

This friendship has been very equal Macbeth.  You provide me tangible goods, I provide you constant entertainment through interaction in the forums and steam chat.  I also provide sound advice on life and social interaction.  You should consider me as somewhat of a mentor.  Not to mention you living your asian fantasies out vicariously through me over the last few years.

I will be impressed once you marry one and have a kid. Until then it seems like you are an unlovable man. Will probably die alone.

Looks interesting enough for a play through once or twice. That whole island genre with it's setting and it's music has a pull for me so I'm biased

edito: fun fact, I dislike shooters involving aliens*. Far Cry went from one of my favorites to one of my most hated games halfway through.



*imo it's such a cop-out when you can give them any powers with any abilities and any weapons

fwiw, I didn't get a whole lot of replayability out of Tropico 4.

I didn't get the playability of any of them. It's like a simcity mod. I think you also need to make an account with the publisher just to play them too.

It does. Launch screen with username and password. Big deal, it's a free game.

Rebought Fallout 4 to give a second try. 15 hours in and I think I have had enough again. The combat is so bad. It is annoying that you can shoot a raider in the bare head 4 times with a rifle and nothing happens because you didn't modify the gun enough. Half of the game's combat is walking backwards while using stimpacks because the person that is hitting you with a bat isn't affected by 10mm rounds to the skull.

So I passed the 100 hour mark on Fallout 4. I take back what I said about how bad it is. It is okay and the settlement system is fun and I usually hate stuff like that. The game needs to be modded pretty heavily to get to the point of being enjoyable. 

The DLC is pretty weak compared to the F3 and NV packs though.

That's half-true for most Bethesda games. I can enjoy them vanilla, but they're so much better when hobbyists have taken the time to tweak everything.

I think in F4s case it is more extreme than previous games. F3 and NV vanilla were perfect imo. But without the mod that fixes the speech wheel, F4 would be unplayable.

4 New Civilizations
Burmese – Assemble the largest empire in the history of Southeast Asia through a legion of Battle Elephants that can demolish the most powerful of defenses. The Burmese unique unit is the Arambai, a ranged cavalry unit with a deadly but low accuracy attack.
Khmer – Construct the largest religious monument in the world and amass an immortal army of devastating siege weapons. The Khmer unique unit is the Ballista Elephant, a mounted scorpion that can be upgraded to fire two bolts simultaneously.
Malay – Conquer Southeast Asia with the vast island empire of Malay and upgrade your docks to harbours which can shoot arrows. The Malay unique unit is the Karambit Warrior, an extremely cheap infantry unit that can quickly overwhelm its foes.
Vietnamese – Lead your people to independence and wage guerilla warfare with an extremely powerful arsenal of ranged units. The Vietnamese unique unit is the Rattan Archer, a heavily-armored ranged unit that is effectively impervious to enemy archer attacks.

They are getting awfully broad with what they consider a civilization. I bet they already have a Estonia civ in development.

Anybody play through Firewatch? Seems to get great reviews but the plot of walking around looking for campfires is suspect.

A new expansion pack has been announced for Ages of Empires II (the HD remake).

Definitely keep that on your radar for the nostalgia.

I watched a couple Youtubers play it when it came out. It was fun to watch, but I don't know how much I would have gotten playing it with my own dumb thoughts. Story seemed pretty engaging, though.

Just beat Firewatch.

I purchased a steam controller and steam link after nearly 11 years of playing with key+mouse at my desk. I haven't owned a console since the Gamecube and haven't gamed with a controller since as well. REALLY nice to play sitting on the couch but using a controller again is tough, especially for FPS's. I figured the gameplay of Firewatch would be a good starter with, not only a controller, but a steam controller.

OT: Good game. As was intended, the story and art were amazing. The ending and the plot holes, not as much. Still worth the buy at $20, if nothing else, wait until it's on sale.

Do you use ethernet or WiFi connection?

Because Valve recommend a wired connection and several reviews said that it was unplayable over wireless.
That probably depends on the location of your access point and the layout of rooms and doors.

I once tried the Steam in-house streaming with Big Screen and a laptop, but only with games like Minecraft and Lego Star Wars.
