WoW?

Tons of people are actually complaining about how Cataclysm is way to hard and HEROIC dungeons are "impossible" (lol).
The game's bosses has not been cleared yet, compare this to the previous expansion WotLK which was cleared in THREE DAYS after release.

What's funny is that people also complained about how WotLK was waaay to easy and not they complain that Caatclysm is waaay to hard . I guess there are some people that you can never really please. :

So yeah, WoW is certainly a challening game now that requires thinking if you want to top the charts.

Go to the site Kongregate. You will find about 60 in their strategy/ RPG section.

Also, if you have ever heared of Baldur's Gate, it is an RTS with a clock that you can make a TB game by setting "Pause at the end of every round" on.

Is there anyone here playing bridge online? I used to play some 10 years ago (@okbridge, was free then, now using trial membership). But back then online chat wasn't as convenient as today (Skype vs mIRC), and I got discouraged as cheating becomes easier.

I don't play it anymore.  I was obsessed with it in college but had to give it up because it was starting to impact the rest of my life negatively.

Regarding cheating: I really don't understand why people cheat at online games.  What's the point?  It's not like you're playing for money.  How is it fun to play a game when you have to cheat to win?

@Corribus:
Yeah, I don't get it either. I usually paired with strangers so as far as I could go was checking the system they used. But when there's a ranking system on the website, some people just too dumb to spoil the fun.

I see a number of chess threads here, I was hoping enough bridge players also for quizzes etc. Wishful thinking, I guess. Apparently it ain't that popular .

I would presonally reccomend Dracula:Origin. The game has many logic puzzles that require some thining. Still I found it very interesting to play. If this game does the trick then I think other games from Frogware might interest you.

Here's a quick trailer

If turn-based is okay, try Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, it's quite cool.

If you're looking for something different, try Fallout: New Vegas with one of the really in-depth survival mods; they really force you to think about what your next move is going to be and try hard to survive.

Final Fantasy Tactics is decent, Advance Wars is pretty good..Civ's are ok.  I know I played an Age of Kingdoms (maybe age of empires?) that was a TBS..it was pretty good.

I would imagine that's no longer as big an issue thanks to the new patch, but rest assured, the guys who make the really good mods actively try to make your life as difficult as they possibly can.
