I have been playing SC2 non stop for two days now

SC2 has awesome atmosphere, I loved its version of Nightmare. He ain't just some supa-evil dude like in the third and fourth game, you can really tell that the Siegfried in him suffers.

The third one has awesomer gameplay though.

The fourth one is just fan service... yay, Star Wars characters and bigger boobs... bah

*still playing GC2*

This game should really have a tutorial that helps you with more than understanding the UI... I'm starting to understand things now and slowly getting better.

Designing your own race and ship designs is awesome fun though, and very simply and easy done. I wish the rest of the game would've been as accessible but you can't have everything. This ain't just some pick-up-and-play game, you kinda have to devote yourself to it.

Or maybe I'm just stupid I dunno.

*Dies of laughter*

*Comes back to haunt Ad to make him play GC2 better*

Your taunts are working btw.

Starting to kick ass here. Found something is perhaps a glitch that allows me to start with Ion Engines without researching the Hyper Drive prerequisite.

Which means that my colony ships are 1 Parsec faster than anyone else's

Very interesting game.

Are you playing what difficulty? Tough is where the AIs are at full capacity. And do tick the force AI to use maximum CPU from the options. It will be hopeless without it. Oh and Twilight of the Arnor has better AI than Dark Avatar or Dread Lords so play custom games on it.

I lost two first games, then won one, lost one, and DOMINATED the last two.
Manipulated the whole game in the other. From trade relations, to alliances to the weapon technologies each nation used. Then I pitted them against each other naturally and stroke them down with purifying fire.
In the other the Torians suddenly decided to wipe out two smaller nations and given time they would have challenged my supremacy in the galaxy. I didn't like that. Allied with another nation, gave them proper technology(logistics, large building, phasors, point defense but not any planetary invasion tactics) to wage war against the Torians in space. They helped me to wipe them out nice and clean but because only I had the planetary invasion tactics I was the only one reaping the benefits.

I understand it's a glitch. But it's a nice glitch if you can't get even in the colony phase otherwise.

You're really devoted in trying to make me feel inferior aren't ya?

Playing on normal right now in Twilight of the Arnor, mostly been trying to get my early game right through a whole lot of restarts so I'm not really familiar with endgame and the differences in difficulties yet.

You also made me feel bad about using the glitch

What Super Ability do you use? Personally I use Super Hive (I like the quick factory constructions), but Super Diplomat seems like the best.

Super Breeder is probably quite awesome too but I don't like it from a roleplaying point of view... yeah my people are humping like rabbits, it's our super ability...

Inferior? No I'm not. Where did you get that idea?

I would speak against the restarts. If you hope to gain a perfect start everytime with 50% of the galaxy under your control in the start where's the fun in it? It's no challenge then. Fighting your way out of a bad corner through cloak and dagger is a lot more rewarding both for yourself and for improving your skills than run of the mill world domination. You get to develop those needed disaster control skills. What to do when your economy can't sustain a navy big enough to fight the stronger empires at your current technology level. Demolish your navy and go for research only for a few years? Perhaps sell it to someone? Risk it and go for a quick grab from someone and hope for a fast peace?

Now I've been playing with the normal races but when I last had this installed I had a civilisation based on Altaria techtree with emphasis on research and luck(creativity with luck and universalist(or the technologists) on altarian techtree on neutral alignment yeah!) You're practically getting breakthroughs on every second tech you research, it's pretty amazing. But the altarian techtree is quite lousy otherwise, there are some nice bonuses but nothing compared to really strong ones, like the terran fleet bubble. I think I used either super orgnaniser(since I like to draw out the date when I build my navy to the last moment possible to gain edge in research I often get attacked and a having the whole world at your back to kick those Drengin back to their pathetic homeworld is pretty nice) or the super diplomat(to balance out the altarian sucky techtree in that department, besides, I like diplomacy more than espionage, it's cheaper).

Yeah, super breeder combined with the normal 100% happiness population growth boom is pretty IMBA. Just check the population graphs when you have those Thorians in. There should be a pretty straight curve at some point.
Super isolationist, super annihilator and super adapter are pretty good too, if there are the right kind of worlds in the map. They can give you some really nice grabs in the start, you can exchange the techs for a pretty good amount of tech in return and super isolationist makes defending your space a lot easier. The spore ship is just evil if the enemies don't have toxic world colonisation. You gain a free world to build and even if the enemy gets it back he can't use it for anything.
Super Soldier would have been the King in original GalCiv 2 where enemies killed with first strike didn't get a chance to shoot. (Actually, cargo ships with lots of guns and a lot speed dominated there.)

I talked about me being inferior

And the restarts aren't exactly about getting good planets and stuff, it was more about exploring what actually works (many farms? Many markets? Manufactories? How do I handle maintenance?)

Specialisation is the way. If you get 20+ planet that will be money planet for example. Small planets are useless for anything else than research. Some medium planets at good places for manufacturing etc. etc.

Though that means you will be using the sliders for spending a lot. You will gain a lot more out of your economy that way since you can turn planets on and off as needed.

Oh, and don't upgrade your factories before the colony phase is over. You want your first factories at the planets to be cheap. Not cost 1500.

Just found Pure pretty cheap for my 360. Ordered.

Looks like an awesome game. I love racing games that are totally over the top, like Burnout.

Just bought Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom.

Found out that the game is completely dependent onto the DRM system.

But, still can play the game stand-alone. A campaign and several squirmishes(scenarios pre-made). I think there is an editor for making or generating newer maps, not sure, yet.

It is a lot like SF4 for PC. What I like about the DRM system is: The world wide Leaderboards. It is like a huge WWW version of a score-keep board(country flag included).

I think that this game resembles a lot Elemental-War of Magic. You start as a leader of peasants where your rank is still Peasant. Must earn your way to King and sovereign of a mighty kingdom. Sounds real cool to me.

I should've been playing Bioshock right now if the damn company I've been ordering from wasn't so ****** up.

1. Adrius orders game
2. waits 8 days, realizes something is wrong and emails company.
3. Customer service girl says am sorry and places guilt on incompetent colleague who can't read properly.
4. Adrius says ok, please fix this.
5. Adrius waits 5 more days and the package finally arrives in his mailbox. However, they've sent Adrius Red Dead Redemption for the fricking PS3 instead of Bioshock for 360...
6. Currently: Adrius sends massive rage over email where he recommends the ability to read as a worthy criteria on their employment interviews. He then orders the game from another company.

Seriously. Something always ****s up when I order stuff.

That's what you get for being an honest customer.

The Witcher Enhanced Edition for me. I can't fathom why they re-recorded some identical lines but it's cool. There's enough sensible improvements in it.

You should demand compensations. Like getting it free, or getting bioshock two to go.

And I'm playing StarCraft: Brood Wars, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and hoping to play Civilization V soon. I've got whole weekend from saturday to monday free.
