    Stellaris

    I've always felt that they never really found a good spot for combat, unlike other PDX games. They always seem to be playing whack-a-mole with OP ways the players find to gimmick, like the destroyer swarm a while back.

    So what you're saying is that the tree will soon be in it's mid life crisis phase where it will buy a motorcycle and start dating a 200 year old tree.

    Europa Universalis IV

    Paradox games are some of the most enjoyable to watch (at least if it is a competent player) on Twitch or YT. I have countless hours watching them, but whenever I try and play them I end up getting roflstomped.

    Europa Universalis IV

    I take it you're playing with the latest expansions? How is the game now? I've heard that it has gone downhill the past 2 or so expansions. Would like to know if it's true.

    I folded and bought a second one. Now I'm good for the next decade. One thing that does annoy and puzzle me is that whenever I load up Steam now it loads up in a window the size of my old monitor 1920x1080. I click the max window button every time but whenever I load up my computer anew, there...

    Gotham Knights new Batman game from Warner Bros Montreal

    I saw the title of this thread and thought "Wow! They're making a new Gabriel Knight game! 90s FMV adventure games aren't dead after all!" Then I clicked it and saw it was GOTHAM Knight and became sad. :(

    Yes. Hmm... they also have a 32 inch version. But the same resolution and slightly lower light output. Yeah, think I'll just buy this. Thanks for the tip @Mist . Edit: Ok, which is better to connect your gaming monitor to your GPU with, Display Port or HDMI? Or doesn't it matter?

    Had a search for the LG monitors and found the 27GP850 for slightly higher than the price of the other. Looks very nice. I think I'll take it. I have an LG phone and LG tv, love them.

    They do, but as I said, you have to add import tax and customs duties onto the Amazon list price. Then there is shipping. And if there is a defect you're up shit creek while if you buy it from a store you have a 3 year guarentee. But will check the LG monitors, thanks. Edit: I found the monitor...

    In my neck of Europe, about $600. And before people jump on the bandwagon telling me that in the USA you can get a 40" ultra gaming monitor with all the bells and whistles, if I were to buy it and ship it here with the postage, tax and customs fees I'd be paying double.

    Yeah, they came out just before the Games Industry went full Woke. Oblivion and Morrowind are also amazing if you can take the old graphics and dated interface.

    I currently have 2x 24" monitors, each about 10 years old. Been looking to upgrade one, my main gaming monitor to something a bit more modern. This monitor is on sale at my local computer store. It seems like an upgrade in every way and at a decent price. Is there any reason why I should NOT buy...

    And the thing is, this wouldn't be so much of a problem if they just made 2-4 expansions per game iteration before moving on to the next. EU4 is what, 10 years old now and still being worked on? I mean, there is a difference between a game like EU4 where they constantly make huge gameplay...

    Witcher 3

    Yeah, I've never seen a game (though they probably do exist) that had modding built in and that made the game worse. The only reason why I can think of modding not being a part of most games is that it is probably a bit of a hassle to put in.

    Witcher 3

    Part of me just wishes they'd just do what 90s game developers did and just release the source code and let the modders lose. They'd not only fix the bugs and make it stable but probably add a shit ton of content to - all for free. Just look at games such as Open X-Com and OpenTTD.

    I'm just looking forward to the vidoes of all the crazy shit people can exploit in something as complex as this. I still remember when EU4 was new people found out that if you could chain up all the merchants you could get you could get trade incomes in the tens of thousands of ducats per month.

    This is from one of the announcement videos from a year ago, timestamped, where they explicitly state that the aim of the game was NOT war, but to be able to play the entire game without going to war.
