Well, in Subnautica I finally have a cyclops and made it into the lost river with all the fossils. I am now building a second base around the Giant Cove Tree since it is an area of relative safety around all the nasty predators. I am getting really concerned about what I do if my cyclops dies though. I don't know if I can physically get to the surface without a vehicle if I were to die and respawn at this secondary base.

Finally got a big stompy robot for my cohort.

And... they suck. A flamer and a punch attack that's a skill rather than just a weapon? Sure, they're tough, but they take up tons of room and cost 5 cognition to teleport in.

I'll stick with the Sicarian Ruskstalkers and Skitarii Rangers. They seem to be more useful.

And my 5 Tech-Priests just demolished a C'Tan shard in two rounds.

Oh yes, with the right amount of min-maxing you can create a devastating party of monsters. I usually just have my tech priests on a mission and servitors for free CP's and cannon fodder.

The game on release was even more broken, the first thing they did was make CP farming a little less easy to pull off.

Do you also have the Heretek DLC? That may prove to be a bit more challenging than the actual game once your priests become too good at what they do.

In Wargame Red Dragon, it was a grim and bloody day. I fought a major tank/air battle against the North Korean army, I managed to wreck most of the enemy army due to achieving air supirority, but the elite regiment of the enemy tank forces was a hard nut to crack. Lost several groups of my own MBTs.
In the follow-up battle in the next sector, I fared better. The enemy 56. Infantry regiment, 12. artility regiment and most of the escorting aviation company and engineer company perished in the figthing.

Playing Total War Warhammer 1. Playing dwarves on easy and started getting murdered a tonne at turn 30. I have silver road, rib peaks and the death pass taken over but Orc double and triple stacks keep spamspawning and running around everywhere murdering my stuff. Grimgor coming back from the dead again and again is pissing me off now too.
Took me 3 restarts kinda figuring stuff out and looks like Ill be due another soon. Shame because this was the only time I beat Zhufbar to Mount Gunbad.

Also found a copy of Dawn Of War 3. My god that games hard to like the gameplay of. Leader abilities are the only thing that seem to kill anything. 3 campaign missions complete and am sick of it. No wonder it killed the DoW franchise.

Just won the long Campaign on turn 380 with Vlad and Isabella on hard - the game takes ALOT of working out I found - in and out of battles! Will likely pick up 2 and 3 soon

Watched alot of vidoes - mainly by https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWqIHkxwNkVTWal2mQbZn0Q to get to grips with it.

Had the opposite problem - the vast Dwarf empire was fine with me until Chaos was defeated then they stabbed me in the back.....

I've found Total War is always SOOOO swingy depending on the latest patch. The autoresolve style calculations are just always so messed up that, quite normally, in a handful of turns there's gigantic snowballed armies having taken over part of the map. In my last Mortal Empires campaign, that was the Orcs.

Dark Elves seemed to also be heavily losing out on automated battles too.

Although the funniest was a few patches ago, where you'd have Wood Elves just conquering Bretonnia then half of the world.

Same happened to me in my Vampire Campaign. Dwarfs left me alone and the Empire was basically in ruins so I alone had to take on the Chaos invasion by myself. As soon as I defeated them Dwarfs opinion of my took a HARD TURN and I got rolled by them. Lousy stunties...

Related, Currently playing through another Vortex Campaign this time as Kroq'Gar. Stay alive in the first 40 turns was hard being surrounded but once I wiped out Clan Mors and curb stomped the Malus Darkblade I'm just sitting pretty in the corner of the map mostly left to my own devices. I also made nice with Imrik so he leaves me alone, so I've been able to max out all my settlements and armies un-molested.

The last time I was putting some time together playing warhammer total war, Grimgor is the big meanie. He seems to decimate whoever he comes into contact with.


I picked up that Hunt: Showdown game on xbox because it was in the sale and a good pal of mine has it. For those who haven't heard about it, it's very fun pvp/pve supernatural/western style game where you hunt horrible monsters in d'bayou.

I played a few games tonight and the game revolves around wandering from one pant cacking moment to the other. Definitely recommend it if that's your jazz.

Wrapped up a Sisters of Twilight campaign in Total Warhammer. Was a bit of a slog at the end, partly because Tyrion and Malekith just wouldn't peace out with me, even though they had other things to deal with (Dreadfleet and Skaven, respectively), and were being roundly crushed.

So eventually ended up owning almost all of Naggarond and most of Lothern, with strong (defensive) alliances with Mazdamundi, Settra and Khatep, and mutual indifference to the various vampires.

The set piece battles for the Sisters were disappointingly easy, though I like the way the dragon mount was implemented (a quest rather than a skill point).

Still don't really like the wood elves as an army. They have a lot of unit options now, but I don't like micro-managing unit abilities, and they've got a lot.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

I thnk there is bascially a relationship reset when the last Chaos is destroyed and anything related to fighting them is lost.

I did manage to hold back the Dwarfs - partly due to having kept Mannfred around as an ally so able to use his armies as well - ir at least set targets for them. Ended up having to trash all the settlements nearby and then the Wood Elves became friends so that helped.

Its good fun although a huge learning curve! I also tend not to run around with "Doom Stacks" so that makes it a bit harder - I also like it records all the events that happened for narrative feel

They are a lot of fun to play I think, it's quite nice to not have to worry about upkeep or recruiting costs. The drive towards getting access to the better troops helps you become used to their playstyle and can make for some really cinematic battels. Even more so if you use mods that spice up their looks, and add a bit more flair to them

I've always liked the Marching Statuary look myself, with Ushabti and Colossi and Heirotitans. I still think GW made a mistake by not having Ramhotep make Ushabti be Core.

That, or try out a Chariot build with Settra. A 50 strong unit of chariots would be awesome to see.

On an Express Elevator to Hell!!

Just did the first ragequit in a while on Star Wars Fallen Order. Really amazed about how many bugs the game has but the final one was the nail in the coffin - got smacked by a creature and knocked off a ledge, rather than falling and respawning as you normally do I kept on falling through the scenery until I hit a floor of nothingness (think the down-below from Stranger Things). Could run around jump, fight etc. but most annoyingly wouldn't die/reset. So I had to reset and reload from my last save point, almost an hour previously. That hour had been pretty dull, retreading old ground to find some other crates, so the ragequit went as follows: Took out the disc -> uninstalled game from machine -> put disc in box -> put game on eBay -> sat down and ate a sandwich.

Overall despite the ragequit would probably give it a 6/10. Bits of it were fun, but really it was only the Star Wars license that made it playable. The whole thing felt like a poor man's Dark Souls, you could see that was what they were trying to achieve, but the combat and platforming sections felt like a PS1 or PS2 game with crappy hit detection and control, none of it fit together that well, and the gameplay fell well short of the (mostly) excellent production values. But even some of those were ruined by cut scenes where characters disappeared on jumped in from off-screen. Whole thing felt like a lost opportunity.

I actually really love gears tactics. Sadly side missions become really repetitive and obnoxious in act 3 when you face like 3 side missions and then one campaign mission per each part of act 3. There are a few things it can add like a character pool and maybe more abilities (hammer of dawn ultimate ability with massive cool down or one per mission would rock or a mortar or flamethrower).

The executions in the game feel great and are helpful by adding actions and making the game fast and gritty. Sadly late game the gear you outfit yourself with makes mission preparation slow but positively yellow and purple gear is great. I'm not sure if injuries would've made this game better or worse. In xcom it adds to the difficulty and makes you worried to get wounds.

I kind of wish new recruits worked like xcom but in this you get em constantly and they often outrank a lot of your previous dudes so you might just switch out one soldier for another.

-----

The main take I have on gears tactics is it's a great first game for a turn based squad tactics game mostly just let down by no character pool and far more side missions than it needs but mostly in act 3. They max number of side missions should be 2 per each campaign mission or at least add different mission types or more mission variety to keep things interesting.
