Re: Games and all things related

Basics are pretty easy - unless you're completely into micromanaging, automate all your workers to improve the land around your cities and you just need to work on city upgrades and your armies. Always get a religion if you can. Catapults and other range weapons are your friends for attack AND defense. MOST of the time the suggestions made by the computer are for the best, although exploring the technology tree helps if you have specific goals (like, making it to gunpowder earlier by ignoring other advantages).

The tutorial was pretty solid, play one. Play on easy until it gets boring. We'll see, maybe I'll play with the streaman' stuff and I can do a tutorial for how I like to play. Still refreshing myself with a lot of the game. Need to up the difficulty to see if I remember how to play.

Lastly, these games are long and incredibly addictive. Will have to figure out if I can gain enough time free of parenting. Figure if the baby will just sleep on me.

Re: Games and all things related

Installing it now, should I also install the 3 expansions? Warlords, Beyond the Sword and Colonization?

Sounds pretty simple, I'll get on the tutorial and so on. You should also get Shogun 2 sometime, co-op in that.

Re: Games and all things related

I'm not running either expansion (Colonization is a stand alone game I think) because it just adds a whole pile of stuff that gets distraction especially on higher levels. Stick to just learning Civ IV right now. It's an amazing game without expansion.

EDIT: By distracting I really mean complex with so much to do that you just go "SHUT IT I WANT TO JUST KILL EVERYONE" after the third or fourth spy attack.

Can't you just use a proxy or something? If you need someone in another region to make you an account I'll do it.

I have Civ IV (and all the expansion) but not on steam, is there a way I can activate my copy on steam? My internet is pretty slow but it's turn-based anyway. Multiplayer Civ is sloooow-paced though.


And yeah, I'm pretty confident in my abilities on Civilization. I'm currently trying to get close to get as close to a 100% victory approval rating on the hardest difficultly of Alpha Centauri (closest score I've gotten is 94%). Getting a 100% victory on Civ 4 is stupidly easy (tiny map, few civs, invade immediately), but the difficulty settings are harder - I've won a few times on Monarch.

Haven't played online multiplayer in a while but last time this happened:

Re: Games and all things related

You might be able to activate it on Steam if you have the CD key. There's an option in the menus.

Re: Games and all things related

Done! Fuck yeah, thank you.

I only have the disc for Beyond the Sword with me at uni. Hopefully I can still play against people on the original version. Not sure.

Will fuck it even harder now, i just removed the game in a moment of anger and despair.

Yes please, make me an account and pm me the pw. I tried the proxy thing but Firefox keeps lagging for some reason.

Guess i'll catch you guys tomorrow then =/

Don't know if the invitation extends to anyone, but after watching the video for it, I'm downloading blacklight now.

Re: Games and all things related

Go for it, dude. I don't know if you're in the Steam group, but this is everyone from the forum, so feel free to join and play sum Blacklight.

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ass...nofgamingchums

I think it's by invite only, so if you have a Steam profile post that shit and someone will get round to inviting you.

Re: Games and all things related

I don't have a steam profile. Yet, I'll make one.

Made one with the same Username. Is that all you would need to send an invite?

Can't find you on search. Open up the steam application and go to profile. Right click and copy the page URL, then post it here.
