Let's talk about our favorite Real Time Strategy/Tactics games
I'm waiting for Starship Troopers Terran Command, I hope the delay was worth it and they fixed game well after the demo.
CoH3 Pre Alpha was also alright, plays more like 1 with some new units

And don't forget: Fuck Gookclickers, fuck Blizzard and fuck ((( GDI )))

Coincidence? Probably. The first two DLC packs feel like lazy and soulless cash grabs. But this one looks really good. I'd buy it if it didn't mean giving money to Microsoft. I'll be looking forward to pirating it instead.

But this is why I made strategy threads and not rts threads
Indians didn't exist yet in the game's timeframe. So they split up the current Indian faction to be more historically accurate.

They might as well. But I'd prefer more non-European civs for no more than two more expansions first. Preferably one Asian, one American themed expansions.

GDI is fucking awesome, if you make something in GDI, it will work on windows 95, on windows 10, and on linux/mac os with wine. It will most likely work forever. The downside is that it is a bit awkward to use, it was made before 32 bit monitors became the defacto standard, so you have to create brushes for colors instead of using colors directly. Also it is likely to lag if window is too high resolution.
Roughly the region of modern India and Pakistan has been called India since the 5th century BC.
If you mean that India as a country didn't exist then most of the factions in the game didn't either.

I am kind of glad that relic seem to no longer being a Company of Wehraboos but they are still being dumb with their unit choices. Why the fuck are they including shit like the M24 Chaffee in 1943?
Still also have completely ignored the Panzer III.
Pajeets are fun in all for memes but there is way more that could be done with Asia. Need some Korea to rule the waves.
You mean wait 5 years after it officially "launches" before it is remotely close to complete but only after you've paid for dozens of ((( DLC ))) goyim!
Also Paradox games aside from being DLC swindling are more about RP than strategy these days. Belong more in a D&D thread.
>kids have adilt features like beards and clothes
If they don't leave shit like that in for fun they are retarded.
>Indians didn't exist yet in the game's timeframe
The whole timeframe of AOEIII is one huge clusterfuck. It tries to condense 400 years of world history from 1500 to 1900 and it just doesn't work. Units really don't evolve properly with the Ages. Hell there are units running around with Colt Revolvers and Henry Repeaters in the Knights of St John campaign.

Having Panzer III's in a 1943 game would be a bit redundant as by then it had largely switched roles with Panzer IV.

About the best mod I tried for HOI4 was the Fallout mod. Seems to work rather well.
Though the latest logistics update Paradox did to the game really is quite half assed and introduces more problems than it solves.
Panzer III was used extensively in Italy and only really started disappearing from frontline service in 1944, even then variants like the L were showing up in the Gothic Line as late as 45. COH3 is also doing the North Africa Campaign.

Then again it wouldn't be the first time Relic screwed the pooch when it comes to timeline disparity in tech. 
>No pasta in COH3
Wasn't the only reference is Ital partisans on Allied side and some Ital troops as German option? I would not be surprised if they did the French before Italy.
>did to the game really is quite half assed and introduces more problems than it solves.
That's the problem with paracucks, they don't actually care about mods. Or they just don't want to accept that hoi4 lives purely by modding.

Pretty sure the Panzer Elite Infantry Support Tank in the first game was originally supposed to be a Panzer 3 at first but the cost was too much and the armor of the tank made no sense, so they changed it to P4 with a stubby  barrel.

That's legit one of the most retarded things I've heard if true. The Panzer III N has more armor than the last Panzer IV equipped with the stubb barrel, the F. I know they scrapped the Panzer III like they scrapped things like the BT-7 and T-26 in COH2 because they decided to get rid of 41 mode.
Something that fills the area between Light and Medium Tank that is much faster than the Panzer IV in a theatre of war where you can count the amount of operational KwK 40 equipped tanks with your fingers? KwK 39 by 43 is showing its age but still a decent enough gun and can serve as a decent early-mid game unit. It would easily serve the role of what the Sd.Kfz. 234 does keep in mind that vehicle should not be available in numbers till 44.

From what I could find out at the time of the allied invasion of Salerno the 16th Panzer Division's operational tanks were: 7 Panzer III KwK 39 probably flamm variant, 12 Panzerbefehlswagen III listed as Panzer 38's in some sources because ??? and 87 Panzer IV KwK 40 L/48.
But then pic related happened and the 26th seems to have had a lot more Panzer III's than the 16th. I'd honestly love to know more but manually trudging through 1000 page tomes that haven't been OCR'd looking for figures is painful.

>German Sources
Problem is that a lot of them are not only contradictory as you just mentioned some have them listed as Panzer 38s but German sources in particular tend to be notoriously unreliable. To the point that you get instances of Germans saying they lost Panzer IVs and then Allies taking pictures of said destroyed Panzer IVs that look an awful lot like French beutepanzers.
A great example is that we still don't really know what Rommel had in North Africa to this day and have to rely on things like photographs of vehicles being knocked out to get confirmation that things like the Stug III actually were used there.
Also I highly doubt there were that many L/48 armed Panzer IVs in that area of Italy at that time. Partly because Italy wasn't as high a priority for such vehicles with the whole pounding at Kursk that just happened. Mostly because the L/48 armed Ausf H didn't really start appearing in numbers till later in 43. I would wager that more than likely most of them were L/43 armed Ausf G models.
>Modded MOO
New which isn't as bad as I remember although it could be that everything has been so shit lately. 
>Microsoft owning all RTS
>Bill Gates is ((( GDI )))
Where's Kane when you need him?
It's also tricky because a lot of common nicknames were post-war or used for a few different variants of vehicles. And because German counts of losses and active tanks could go up and down based on if a vehicle was recovered and repaired.

The numbers and the part listing the 12 mystery tanks as Panzer 38's were from a bong source actually, The Mediterranean and Middle East: Volume 5, but according to some history forum thread I found they were most likely command tanks listed in German sources.
According to the same German sources there were only L/48's in the 16th Panzer Division by June.
Pic related is supposedly the 26th after the 16th fucked off to the Ostfront leaving them some extra tanks.
I've not even tried it, new 4X games usually leave me with a bad taste.

As anons have said the originals come with the remasters.
Few things you need to keep on board about HW though:
HW1 you literally salvage every goddamn thing in sight. 
HW: Cataclysm is an RTS Horror Game and one of the few games where an enemy that has the ability to subvert control of your units is done right.
HW2 is mechanic wise a complete downgrade to HW1 as it removes projectile physics in favor of RNG as well as destroying unit AI and formations. Plus it adds a completely retarded difficulty scaling where in order for the next mission to be playable you need to retire your entire fleet before it starts.

They had a playtest for Crossfire Legion and basically everyone told them their game was shit and should feel bad.
Devs gave zero indication of taking feedback on their game onboard.
No they actually made them in some cases worse. Then they introduced half ass fixes that broke most of the mods and content creators gave up on the game.
They ported HW1 into the HW2 engine, killing formations and unit behaviours. They also added difficulty scaling to HW1 which is horrendously broken worse than HW2 in some cases.

If it delivers what they say it's gonna be goat of goats. They have small novel worth of lore written already if you're into that shit.
In short, earth united, space colonized, shit go bad, space dark age ensues. On that topic, Shadow Empire is a mad good game, play it you plebs
Premise for game proper is prepare for buzzwords survival RTS, you're a fleet commander, earth has been attacked by (mysterious existential threat) you must take your shit and run from system to system while establishing bases and colonies on planets/asteroids/whatever, dealing with potential locals of varying tech advancement and system presence (with diplomacy if you're a pussy), harvesting resources that are completely localized (ie not added to a magic resource pool and has to be transported to where they need to go), managing personnel, building and customizing your fleet, retrofit old ships, doing science and so on and so on with the end goal of defeating the fags who blew up all the McDonalds back on earth and want to turn the survivors into lampshades. 

All in all this shit looks pretty ambitious and from what they've shown so far it certainly looks like they could well fucking pull it off. Also they promise good mod support.
Otherwise there are a lot of dank fucking games on that list that I very much look forward to, Terra Invicta seems to be another one to tick all my autism boxes, high hopes there. And If we're allowed to shill RTT I have to say the new Chaos Gate could actually be good, despite it just sharing name and nothing more with it's predecessor, which I still replay on a bi-yearly basis.

I must have started like 7 Gothic Armada 2 imperial campaigns, sometimes with Skalgrim, sometimes with that other mod(had Xenotide in the title), sometimes vanilla, and then dropped them by the time Nids are introduced after their big story mission where they have a lot of invasions across your sectors.. I mean it's a neat core with a load of visual and and musical appeal but it has a load of issues and I get the feeling it's only really liked because it's a 40k title.
>Utterly pathetic resource, fleet command and leadership counts. Stuff like Skalgrim doesn't exactly fix it because it still has the whole "one ship takes up 60% of your fleet command size except for escort ships"
>AI is braindead and plays just about the same "rush the enemy" game under any faction. Meaning strategy is kind of lost beyond "hide in aestroid belts/gas clouds while revealing enemies to have completely one sided engagements
>In fact strategy feels completely devoid beyond torpedos and the limited number of command skills you have. There's no reason to pick reload over lock-on target stances or the other way around for certain ranges. pincer attacks are kind of pointless because microing your ships to remain behind the enemy is such a massive pain in the ass, side armor is the same regardless of direction and. In fact reflecting on it I haven't had to use any strategy ever beyond that one skalgrim campaign where I took on a 5k nid fleet with a single space wolf grand battleship and then just spun around in place colliding enemy ships into each other. Just about every fight I got into I either won thanks to blobbing my tough ships together and focus firing the enemy ships as needed or plopping them into gas clouds and waiting for the large enemy force to single-file towards me, destroying them from the safety of invisibility.
>Fuck all in terms of overworld/campaign or strategy difficulty, it's just a timer where the game goes "okay I know you completely wiped out these factions from the map but here's a 4k invasion fleet coming into this sector because we couldn't or didn't want to bother with overworld AI, resource management or anything that would have been somewhat fun yet fair because every fucking new 40k game you'll play will have enemies pop out of nowhere because GW is only licensing to incompetent fucks who can't balance a game because all they care about is selling DLC immediately after and then dropping the games

I did some digging and stumbled on a steam forum post that links to an RPGcodex post that claims none of the game's textures are compressed and as such you're stuck with loads of 8k/4k textures.
Which is quite a shame because all I've read is the game is pretty challenging and isn't another Firaxcom affair which is really what I want.
Any recommendations for good, recent TBTs? I tried Phoenix Point and it's one of those games that made me completely miserable playing it because I couldn't find shit fun about it. Yeah it has a (pseudo) TU system I liked and manual aiming is always neat to see but it was so fucking boring outside of that.
Also also, it's in early access but I came across this which claims to be a HoMM inspired game. It looks nice but again, Early Access.

Ultramarines weren't smurfs when Chaos Gate came out. They were the Kirkland Signature Marines and you played them if you had no imagination.
Ghey Knights on the other hand were the overpowered marines even before Ward got to them, this is because they have to be as they suplex greater daemons every day among other shit that properly belongs in a Platinum game. They should have made you play as Inquisition meatbags and left marines as a late-game super unit.
Ultramarines were still decently interesting pseudo-Romans back in the time of Chaos Gate. The cancer came in later.

Multiplayer doesn't work for shit, there's no maps, no campaings no nothing. The balance is even more in favour to GDI than in vanilla TS even if Nod has actual mobility armor options that aren't shit. The AI cheats in all difficulties and the only halfway decent thing, the map randomizer, is literally copying the RA2 shit-tier randomizer that makes absolute garbage maps that may even completely break the game or drop you off in a plateu that has no ramps so you can't even go outside it without carryalls and god forbid you're Nod because that means you have no way to escape it without engineers. Infantry were nerfed hard, ion storms are forced in some of the more decent skirmish maps making them completely irremediable trash and everything is just generally awful.

Well I played Call to Arms now and I am kinda disappointed with its system. First under conquest for some reason it won't let me add any kind of allies, change map or what kind of opponent I fight off against. 

With my first changed conquest settings that there is (there is not much to change...) I got my ass kicked 4 times because I didn't know what I was supposed to do and on the 4th game the AI fucking raped me with vehicles and some kind of explosive weapons which absolutely destroyed my squad. 

Then later as I made a new conquest game I managed to have 2 victories as the AI seems to rely much more on infantry so I could use my armored vehicle as a advance to suppress the enemy while I slowly move the other soldiers to the next cover point so that I can take their flag, the russians spammed a lot of soldiers but somehow my soldier managed to stay alive and I barely had any casualty on this first round. 

Overall it seems this game on conquest mode takes some time before it lets me allow to purchase the tanks and it won't let me mix and match different faction units either which is a shame. 

Also that game is way too heavy with over 40GB of space it takes and it takes it sweet time to load up the game which is a bit too much for me as I don't have always the patience to play a short match. 

There is no setting either how long a single battle last so it seems it won't let me have single rounds that last me 20 or 30 minutes or so which is another downside.

Overall I'm fairly disappointed with this game.

>Panzer Elite

Nah, I'll pass. I prefer action games, simulation games are not my forte.
The game design is just to cover up the shitty engine and poor gameplay fundamentals by giving each race a weird isolated game mechanic to try and differentiate them. A good game would have the races play differently inherently based on their starting location, unit roster and so on but a lazy one just sits a few devs down and says 'hardcode some special mana bar they have to fill up by larping as their faction's generic stereotype'. Same thing ((( Paradox ))) games fall into by having such limited simulations they have to hardcode focus trees (or similar) for each nation to add variety.

Bsaically it's not a game or simulation with a bunch of moving parts that can lead to almost unlimited unique situations naturally it's picking from a ton of hand-made linear paths/gameplay styles with oblique ways to go down it.
Replies: >>142654 >>142692
>A good game would have the races play differently inherently based on their starting location, unit roster and so on 
There are a few races in TW:WH2 that do that though. It even has variant lords that specialize on a specific unit type and have a starting location that amplifies their weaknesses like how Skarsnik specializes with goblins and starts right next to angry dwarves who stomp on goblins due to high armor. The problem is none of this matters after you deal with the problems your starting position gives you and get your monster units. But you're right in that 2/3rds of the additions are some retarded gimmick like a slightly different tech tree or filling a bar or hoarding a resource. I could look past that for the 1/3rd that is amazing if it weren't for the fact the game falls apart once you get over the initial hurdle. I doubt immortal empires will fix this it'll probably just make the lategame slog stretch out even longer.

<Dawn of War 1 + Expansions
1 is a standard linear RTS campaign, decent storyline but can sometimes get repetitive if you're one of those fags who just turtles until he can win easily. Only a Space Marine campaign but it's fairly fun.
Winter Assault is more of the same and has both an order and an evil faction campaign but they feel a little rushed and are a slog of endless spawning enemies. Thematically that sort of works when you play the guard though.
Dark Crusade shifted focus entirely to being open-ended with a turn-based overmap you can pick and choose where to attack in and earn things over time. Personally I find it can get a bit repetitive outside of attacking enemy strongholds which are specific special missions like in the first game but most people consider this the best campaign of the original games. If you play it play it on hard which is pretty much just normal difficulty. You can play as any faction you want this time around.
Soulstorm's campaign is like Dark Crusade's but with a worse map and some weird faction abilities. It did improve some things like making it harder to cheese the repeat fights with pre-built bases.

<Dawn of War 2 + Expansions
Base Dawn of War 2 is suddently an RTT instead of an RTS and a particularly small scale one at that (four squads/heroes max). It also has a lot of levelling up and equipment to manage and in my opinion the RTT mechanics get old eventually (pin, flank, activate ability) when you only have four squads to command. You can play coop though. The game is back to linear missions though you can occasionally do (grindable) side-missions as well if you want. Again only a marine campaign.
Chaos Rising improves the storytelling and the gameplay a bit (the map design was more focussed/better paced in my opinion) over the base game but is otherwise more of the same. Managing corruption was a good idea even if the implementation was a tad poor. Less grindable sidemissions and in general the game feels less focussed around levelling and spamming loot. Still marines only.
Retribution is a shift again to address complaints about the game being very small scale RTT adding in a weird halfway-house honour guard mechanic + unit 'building' in missions using MP tactics and not having other factions, now you get campaigns for every race again but it's basically just the same missions with slightly different dialogue.

There's also the last stand(alone) for DoW2 which is wave based survival with hero units mostly relevant for coop play but it requires a lot of grinding to get your hero in a good spot. Fun though.

<Dawn of War 3
It applies to many games.
It's a mediocre RTT
My biggest issues are the huge amount of women commanders and the shit music.
t.played the demo

It's not worth the money honestly, I bought Shredders Revenge instead.
Pre-rework beastmen at least they interacted with the actual game systems. You had to pick your targets to get as much money from raiding and looting as possible while avoiding the biggest enemy stacks. However it was shit because the AI would just resettle everything for free and every lost battle was an instant game over.
The rework fixed both these problems but also circumvented the entire rest of the game with its new systems. Your choice of target is predetermined by best possible Herdstone you can get, your army is always just the strongest shit you have unlocked because upkeep is free and Dread is just economy, research and building in one overcomplicated screen for some reason. But that's pretty much the story of all TWW DLC/updates, just tacked on bullshit with shiny buttons to click.

Found a source.
>Critics and audiences alike were confused by Verhoeven's (the movie director) approach, feeling that it was simplistic and childish compared to the seriousness and scope of Heinlein's vision.
>Maybe it wouldn't have taken so long for viewers to understand what Verhoeven was trying to do if they knew the truth: that he hated the book so much he couldn't finish it.
>He told Empire he stopped reading the book after two chapters, finding it "boring and depressing," and asked Neumeier to fill him in on the rest. "It is really quite a bad book. I asked Ed Neumeier to tell me the story because I just couldn't read the thing. It's a very right-wing book," Verhoeven said.
>There's a reason Verhoeven reacted so negatively to Heinlein's book. Having grown up under the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands (via the Independent), he was less interested in its spectacular displays of patriotism than in picking apart the rotten ideology behind them. Before moving to Hollywood, he made his name in Europe with social and psychological dramas that closely analyzed Dutch society and the legacy of war. Heinlein's Starship Troopers, meanwhile, was a novel widely known for its jingoistic, pro-war, pro-military messages, which have led many critics to describe it as propaganda. Verhoeven quickly decided he had no interest in making a straight adaptation, let alone diving into fan-favorite world-building particulars, such as the famously excised power suits. Instead, per the Empire interview, he chose to design the movie's world as a "fascist utopia," in an effort to show why it was bad.
TL;DR he refused to read a book that goes out of its way to explicitly state the fascist society of the world isn't necessary good because muh natzees and muh right wing
Not really unexpected from a hollywood grifter.

Still, the government wasn't an open democracy, it was very pro-military due to the setting, and instead of jail it had public displays of corporal punishment. 
Even though the author explicitly stated that it wasn't a perfect government but it worked, and gave solid reasons as to why it worked, that didn't stop people from refusing to read it and branding it as [thing I don't like] propaganda.

The book and film are both decent, just unrelated other than the fact they licensed the book's name for the film fairly late on in production and the director was too retarded to understand the concept of speculative fiction. If you want a decent adaption of the book look to the anime and just enjoy the film for what it is ignoring the title.

The book was a look at an alternative form of full citizenship only after service, primarily military but theoretically also non-military. The military combat and bootcamp elements are mostly dressing to that core part of examining if a utopia could work that wasn't magical space communism. Don't serve, don't vote or stand for office but you're still free to live life and earn money. It was also apparently written because Henlein was worried the youth of his era would grow up into worthless shits. Everyone also forgets the man also wrote books about free love hippie societies and lots of libertarian stuff too neither of which are comptaible with lazy accusations of ebul fascism but then most people criticising the book haven't read it or any other good speculative fiction or likely any books are all that weren't on their approved reading lists during education.

The movie has three elements. There's the surface level action movie which is pretty good and you can enjoy it as-is. Then there's the fascism bad even if it looks utopian element, which is ok but a little lazy. Finally it's supposed to be satire of war movies/the USA's cultural shift through WW2 and into the Cold War towards militarism particularly including WW2/Korean War movies there are direct references like how they load and fire their space-bazookas featuring burgers as the good guys and ignoring the violence and death involved or how they dehumanise any opponent (see: Germans in WW2 films). If you put yourself in the mind of a normalfag who isn't already aware of the idea that maybe the USA hasn't always been the objective hero (anons are already more sensitive to that for obvious reasons) and that dying in a foreign land killing other young men only defending their home for ((( interests ))) back home and the point it's making is more obvious. It'd have made far more sense with the original idea of casting teenagers given that in most wars it's that demographic and early 20s who die. It's also fairly clear from what you see in the film that the bugs are likely sentient and possibly that the attack on Buenos Aires was a false flag but that's a different discussion and it's debatable if that was intentional or just because the director didn't understand basic physics.

A shame a book that nearly single-handedly created the mecha genre conspiciously lacks mecha.

I remember the CGI animated adaption rectified that by depicting the troopers in actual power armor, instead of going into battle practically naked against giant bugs the size of a largish family SUV, a fit of stupidity only rivaled by the naked aliens in Signs.

The movie is propaganda for frizzy haired tomboys and no one can convince me otherwise.

I think the game could compromise by having a power armor unit that is stronger then the regular human unit. Of course in the book the power armor allows humans to be on equal footing at all against the bugs, but better then nothing.

Damn. Is there a reason the bugs are so expansionist and why exactly they would attack humanity like that? I guess that's why they're aliens. Humans could not understand their viewpoint or their wants and needs. You mentioned that the bugs were sentient in the movies. What exactly are the reasons they would want to invade earth?  Resources? Another place to live?  Have any other space faring species fought the bugs before? 

I could understand the point of it being a false flag, in a similar manner to real life events like 9/11. However as you've said, the books stated that the bugs have used this tactic before. Even though it's kind off topic, it kind of reminds of what the Krogan did in the Krogan rebellion to Turian colonies. They bombarded them with asteroids and made them basically unlivable. 

Something regarding the asteroid itself, how big was it? Also was the asteroid itself from our own solar system or did it originate from the Klendathu system?
>Is there a reason the bugs are so expansionist and why exactly they would attack humanity like that?
It all comes down to competition between species. Humans and Bugs are competing for resources, planets, you name it. Everything a lifeform needs, both species want it. Conflict determines which species survives and which becomes history.

Finished Starship Troopers
Its decent but it has its fair share of problems that become more apparent the longer you play
Unit pathfinding while not bad gets fucky with the big Marauder suits and edges of platforms and cliffs causing the unit to just vibrate near it and in the final missions when battles got really big my inputs started getting ignored or delayed
The self-preservation of units is also kinda ass, they attack the bugs closes to them, which sometimes works sometimes not, but they lack target prioritization which makes rocket troops really micro heavy especially in the later missions where something tanker or scorpion bugs are pretty much a given
Mission wise it kinda just blurred together and ended up boiling down to the same cycle of capture outpost, bugs get stronger, destroy hive, bugs get stronger and this goes on until mission complete for most missions with only few being different

Its probably the Feddies stepped on the bugs trying to grab for resources, and the bugs retaliated, starting the war. The fact that the bugs had allies at all, skinnies, showed that they were an advanced species capable of diplomacy, only feddy propaganda depicted them as mindless insect hordes. Just another example of "do it because we can, and make up excuses afterwards."

Pain. Their range is also longer than a missile turret, meaning they can effectively snipe units. And since they're armored, usual snipers don't do much against them.

Well, I read your post but didn't really address it. The whole thing was something that could be placed into any setting, not necessarily a sci-fi one and that's what sort of made it stand out. Sci-fi, in my opinion, works best when it can blend the speculative fiction pieces with the more grounded in reality aspects. 

The psychology itself in that particular part made me think of the Chimpanzee ladder experiment, where you hate something for reasons you don't really understand and don't care to understand.

Was updating some mods and C&C Generals has massively streamlined the hassle of different mods for the game. Download the repack by Elamigos, then grab the genlauncher and config tool. This wraps a shell around the game, applying crash fixes, actual zoom out and as you can see in the screenshot, 5 different mods like Rise of Reds, Contra and Shockwave that can be activated individually from this one program.
Haven't tested it online but played a 45 minute game against bots and it doesn't crash. Want to try deliberate crashing with airforce next but glad this game got this treatment.

After being disappointed a lot with Terran Command I stumbled across an indie game back from 2014 called Infested Planet. It's got the same basic gameplay premise(I mean this as in it's the same "basic" level of mechanical depth like with Terran command) as Terran Command except I've enjoyed it far more and implements its mechanics far better, with the exception of the line of fire/sight which Terran Command constantly circumvents anyways.

Infested Planet is more or less a more tactical Creeper World. You have a handful of troops(average max is 5) each of a specific class, rifleman, short range flamethrower, long range sniper, etc, plus some auxillary buildings like mortar support and various buff giving things. Your troops can't fire while moving and unlike Terran command there's an actual fucking horde in your way that you have to slowly inch your way through the horde, making sure you don't do any major missteps that would cause your guys to get overrun and setting yourself back a major amount to reach the infinitely spawning hives(same idea as creeper world, you clear them out with some special unit and they stop spawning infinite waves of enemies).
Sometimes the horde mutates with various passive(more health, faster movement, etc) and active(an exploding variant that rushes your troopers, and unlike Terran Command you can actually order snipers to prioritize these) abilities to keep you on your toes.
I love creeper world so I'm really biased towards this but I've been really enjoying it. It's really fun, it's somewhat long and it has an extra mission mode under "Planetary Campaign" where it's more or less a Dark Crusade type RISK map where you take on the horde on a planetary scale in instanced areas, gaining upgrades and having the horde level up as well. I really recommend it if you're looking for a small scale fun game like Creeper World where you want to take on a big horde as a handful of elite troops and support buildings.
Here's a DL as well.

THQ pretty much killed itself with excess licensing (much in the same way as TellTale) and trying to get into the peripheral market.
DoW2 also wasn't that big of a hit, even compared to the first game.
It was in a weird place that most people who played CoH simply did not want.

Add to that Homefront and Space Marine flopping and you get their bankrupcy.

I´ve been playing Warrior Kings recently and I´ve been wondering where it would fit on that chart
Its a fantasy RTS and it got a big focus on resource management with its food upkeep and the need to transport your collected resources to your castle via slow cart and proper tactics with height advantage and formations, but it also has fantasy elements with demons, the undead and magic and even features an alignment system that changes what types of units and structures you get

I'm not exactly a cool guy but I mentioned King Arthur a while back.
They've finally gotten around to making the filesize reasonable, it's down to 30 gigabytes now.
It's a fun game but the overworld map runs fairly poorly(or more it runs my PC hot despite not rendering anything impressive), could use a lot more visual customization and I wish I had more freedom with picking my heroes' abilities. I don't know what idiot thought "Poison Cut" is a good idea for a vanguard's basic attack when it costs one more AP than regular attacks, has lower base damage and a major faction in the game is inherently poison immune.
Also I really like the music. Embed related in particular would have been a standout for me if it had the violins for more than 30 seconds.

The morality chart is pretty lame though. None of the choices have much in the way of impact and you're more or less encouraged to stick to one corner for a playthrough for the bonuses rather than for the "role playing", because Morderd and the rest of the knights are honestly pretty bland as characters. Gritty knights of the round table isn't a very fun setting when everyone's either miserable or pragmatically miserable. I do like Sir Yvaine since he's a (relatively) goofy adventurer who probably makes up 90% of his "adventures" but his voice actor grates on me.

Fuuck, this game got brutal in act 2.
If Morderd(third from the top) or Brunor got killed that's game over for that campaign because they're essential characters. Worst part is all of this was to recruit Brunor who is an utterly shit champion compared to my other two and this level was insanely brutal with how many enemies swarm you at one point and how you only have one fireplace(healing orange health/armor repair) for the entire level.

I've played a few games, I'd recommend getting the Unification Unlimited mod, simply to remove unit restrictions. For instance, Witch Hunters can only get 3 Celetians, 1 Retributer and 2 Penitant Engines. I know it's designed around balance but when I expand the roster to 40 squad cap, half of my army are default Sister squads because everything else is restricted.
I don't want balance, I want fun. Fun is stomping an enemy under 3 land raider tracks.

Also I'm glad default Sisters got a bit buffed. They need decent armor so giving them actual predator tanks and saints like Silvana are welcomed.

Bout fuggen time. Been wondering when Stardock would make a sequel.
Game won't be sold on Steam until final release. First faction is TEC Loyalists, meaning the faction system is still in.

Screenshots 2 and 3 feature the Kodiak and Kol class ships from the TEC faction. The oversized turrets I first thought was because the game is going to run on the GalCiv 3 engine but according to presses releases it's a next gen engine designed for Sins and not Galciv. I think it's a design decision to make the armaments of ships stick out, as big turrests was also a thing in Galciv 3.
Mod support is also built into the game engine.

It'll only be a problem if you're so sensitive to subtle SocJus propaganda that even turning it off/skipping/ignoring it is not enough for you. All of the Definitive Editions, after a major patch or two, are fine remakes that are worth the time it takes to pirate them. Unless Relic develops this remake, this fourth Definitive Edition ought to follow the trend.
What I also like about this is, Heinlein also pretty much wrote the manual for being a hippy, Stranger in a Strange Land. They brand him as propaganda but he's also responsible for that crap about trees having feelings.
polishing what was already fine as an excuse to insert social justice whacko nonsense is its own problem that does not warrant a new edition. also
>after a major patch or two
I miss games being complete after release. beta testing for free is dumb.
>fine remakes
Might be neat, especially if they put the Chinese through the grinder and turn them into something that actually deserves to be called a new civ.
I am still worried whatever this "retold" title might mean - you could argue they will not call it a "Definitive Edition" if they want to add more civs/content, but it's not like that stopped them when it came to AoE II.

More importantly - any "hardcore mobile gamers" here thrilled for AoE Mobile?
>All of the Definitive Editions, after a major patch or two, are fine remakes
as a fan of AoE 3:
I want the mystical age of commerce gone
i want my fire pits back
i want my fake German flag back
I want the Iroquis to be named Iroquis again
I want to have a deck of more than 25 cards without mods.
I want to be able to name all of my explorers and not just the one.
I want the game to be less than 50 gb
I want them to remove the fucking new native audio holyshit please give me back the old one, I HAVE to use mods.

I actually don't mind the new factions, I haven't played the african ones, but it still weirds me out they didn't select the Zulus and instead chose a country that was retarded and roflstomped by Europeans.
This is what happens when you have Melbournites make your game. If they had any balls, they would add Australian Aboriginals as a faction.

In unrelated news, the "Definitive" Edition of AoE2 apparently is getting a DLC that lets you play AoE 1 civs with their old tech trees in its own game mode.

So differently put, Microsoft wants you to pay for the "Definitive" Edition of AoE 1. Again. I'll be laughing my ass off if the DLC only contains three civs and the other 13 have to be bought separately.
So they´re taking a mod and make it into DLC

Well the EA license expires 2023, which means that theres the strong possibility that they might give it to other devs.

Well so far Indian civ for AOEO:PC is doing well.
I mean canonically all TEC-ships should be commercial ships jury-rigged for war. But I guess it's hard to justify it now if the "story"(if there ever was one) is progressing.

It looks like it's still fucked in that image. See, the game always displays the sprites with the same number of onscreen pixels, which makes them really fucking tiny if you play in high res modes. They're intended to be a certain percentage of screen space to make them easy to see and select.

Just played the CoH3 tech test, it's fucking awful, DOA.
Somehow worse than even CoH3, it's like they wanted to make CoH1 but didn't understand what made it good, add to that shit graphics, a console port, blatant system for microtransactions, shit sound design and Denuvo and you got yourself a pure shitfest.

Italians could have used German equipment as well, including a Tiger which was used by them. Really stupid decision.

They will, can't even import models into the game.
Relic is dead, Company of Heroes 2 was already shit for retards and the only decent things made for it were the ones provided by the team before all the THQ bankrupcy layoffs, the newfags on the team simply added their stink and released it.

What amazes me is that teams with half the size and 1/10th of the budget are making RTS games that look, sound and play better.
You see shit like Homeworld 3, Warno, Broken Arrow and Sins of a Solar Empire 2 and they look and sound great, meanwhile this shit looks and sounds like a low effort mobile port.
I mean, even stuff like Ratten Reich and Tempest Rising look better.
What the fuck

Its an ass thing to do, but the german dub of CoH2 wasnt that great and they did the same thing with Dawn of War 3 and even if there was a dub, the limited modding capabilities mean that you can´t do a native unit dub mod like CoH1 has

Play forged alliance forever
The best way to think about this is to think about the amount of people that have to coordinate the bigger projects get. if there's n people there's n! different freaking communication lines. There's a breakeven point between amount of devs and time wasted due to stupid clerical work bullshit and we've passed that point a long time ago. Add in management that's completely removed from both playing games and the developers and it's a wonder that things such as "AAA" games even exist.
