Flodder, how's that Minecraft full NYC coming along?

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Jumped back into Crusader Kings 2, managed to remember what I was doing when I left off. Mostly.

 

I am now on my third ruler, and they are a Demon Child, which has made things...interesting. My ruler died shortly before the Demon Child came of age. Mercifully, I had a loyal regent who didn't trash my crown authority during the transition, but my current ruler has been widely despised since they became (Petty) King, and if not for the good work of my Chancellor, there would have been civil war (A Petty King is what the English call an independent Duke. My primary title becomes a Petty Kingdom instead of a Duchy, but is the same rank. To be a 'King' I need to hold a Kingdom level title).

 

Also, when I was playing before, I apparently arranged an absolute coup of a marriage. I control southern (nearly) half of England. Above me are the pretty Kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria. My current (3rd) ruler married the sister of the Queen of Northumbria, arranged by his father.

 

Since my current ruler is largely despised (the whole demon thing has given him a bunch of generally undesirable traits. I also hold a lot of ducal titles, and every single one of my vassals wants at least one of them), I can't get any meaningful troops from my vassals (which defeats the whole point of feudalism, but whatever), but my ruler was able to increase his demesne by revoking titles for two very strong counties that were in possession of people who wanted to overthrow me during the regency, which I though provided me with enough personal levies to press my wife's claim on Northumbria in war.

 

In retrospect, I don't think I would have won, at least not without mercenaries. My army wasn't powerful enough by a sufficient margin and was taking losses from the start that likely would have been unsustainable. However, as luck would have it, the Demon Child gets an even in their first war which summons 3 'witches' who can serve in council posistions, really like me, and have excellent skills. They also gave me a 1,500 strong army which bolstered me back up to over 4,000 troops. Even after Mercia, West Francia, and some other minor power joined Northumbria against me, I was able to win.

 

However, I don't get the Northumbrian title for myself, since I pressed it on behalf of my wife. However, since we are married and like each other, it was nothing to form an alliance. That means that whatever happens, I will not have to fight Northumbria, and should be able to have them fight alongside me (and I along side them, since it goes both ways). My son is heir to my Petty Kingdom of Wessex, and now also heir to the Petty Kingdom of Northumbria, which together form most of the Kingdom of England, which will make it easy to found. I'd like to do it earlier, but my current ruler doesn't have the needed piety (keeps losing it torturing prisoners), and I would still need to bring a few more counties under my direct control. My threat level would now seem to be high enough that trying to do that through more war could be dangerous (everyone will unite against me).

 

Also, because these are Petty Kingdoms, the naming of titles has gotten a bit funny.

 

I am King Alfred of Wessex, Petty King of Wessex, Duke of Essex, Hwice, and Kent, King of Northumbria.

 

It's just the way the titles are handled by the game, where it drops the 'Petty' from the title listings for the spouse.

Hordes are OP. I currently personally hold a raised horde of over 80k horse archers and lancers. I own pretty much most of the world and according to ledger my army is 8 times as large as the next one in the world.

 

However, succession is gonna be harsh... Everyone can choose independence instead of my successor's rule...

It's just been so much better than its predecessor within the first couple of hours that I have to wonder whether Tales of Zestiria was filler; it had a large scope and lofty goals but it seems so small and impersonal by comparison

I'm maybe 10 hours into this now and it's probably going to dethrone Tales of the Abyss as my favorite installment from this franchise. They've really nailed the sense of intimacy between members of the main party; most of them are, simply put, awful people who would be the villains in any other story, but there's a huge focus on seeing them at least try to put their lives back together and find whatever sense of normalcy they can when everything else has failed them. It works as a perfect counterpoint to Tales of Zestiria's grandiose heroism: fundamentally broken people doing their best to reach their disparate goals in spite of it all, as opposed to paragons of righteousness rising above their own limits for the good of the world.

 

Depressing, to be sure, but the theme is something I deeply appreciate for a lot of reasons.

I've not gotten far enough into the game to see stuff like that yet. At like year 830 in my first game :D

 

I did become King of England, and made my wife a vassal. However, all those counties have retained Gavalkind Succession, which I am displeased with. It seems the only way to fix that would be to destroy all the ducal titles and reform them, which should allow them to inherit the Primogeniture I want to be using. I expect that if my King continues to not be assassinated, then towards the end of his expected life I am going to go on a bit of a tyranny rampage and clean up some of the titles and lines of succession. I didn't plan things out nicely for giving out my ducal titles, so things are a bit of a mess. I am currently retaining the Duchies of Essex and Wessex for myself, and I want to divest myself of my county holdings in other duchies and trade them for the counties in Essex I am missing. I figure I'm going to pretty unpopular no matter what anyway (at any given time I usually have ~5 of the deadly sins, which in addition to not having clean distribution of titles means a lot of people still hate me), so might as well go for it. Northumbria is an issue though. I don't think I can easily grab that title for myself so I can destroy and remake it.

 

I suppose it's not a huge deal though since my personal holdings are all in the south with clear lines of succession, so my personal levies aren't at risk, and as king, I get my vassal levies regardless of what going on in the North. As long as they don't kill each other (though I think they're trying. My wife has been revoking titles like mad since I brought Northumbria into the fold).

 

Mercia is still holding on. I had to take a break since I was gaining too much threat. I think I've also managed to set myself up for a future claim on the Kingdom of Pictland. I also need to check because I think I actually have an automatic Casus Belie on Mercia that I've totally forgotten about (since they are a de jure part of my Kingdom).

 

Oh, and I've gone heretical twice, but I have the prestige to instantly convert back so it's just been a huge boon to my piety. I wish I would get the Cathar Heresy. I might actually keep that one for the Absolute Cognatic succession law. It has been a frustrating pattern that my first born is always female, and is often the best heir I ever produce. Besides, it makes the lines of succession infinitely more interesting. If it comes soon, I should be strong enough to survive sticking with it too. France just exploded into another succession war, and I like my chances if Pictland or Ireland comes for me. This would be the ruler too, since I'm not really worried about opinion at this point. Demon Children would not seem to be easily killed.

Gwent and Dirt Rally.

 

That stand-alone Gwent is quite good actually. Can't wait for the addition of campaign and other stuff.

 

For Skellige!

Halo Wars 2 and RuneScape!

 

I have to say though, maybe my expectations were too high (because I played a ton of Halo Wars 1 - 1200 multiplayer games + winning the campaign under Legendary + getting all achievements) but I'm kind of disappointed so far with HW2. I've only played the campaign two missions coop with a friend under Legendary, but it was extremely easy. The graphics are worse than Halo Wars 1 in my opinion, though the cinematic parts are amazing. The controls in Halo Wars 1 felt perfect for the game, but it feels like the controls are harder to use in HW2 and it's kind of annoying actually. Of course, I may need more play-time in the game so I can adjust possibly, and I hope the multiplayer has more going for it than what I've seen and read for reviews regarding the campaign...

Played Halo Wars 2 a bit more yesterday... and we actually LOST in one of the missions. The second time through we won it after using better unit control and knowing ahead of time what would be coming up in the waves that are attacking our LZ. Still not sure what to make of the game as of yet, as I'm still mixed. We figured out to select all units too, which I think it's silly that they changed the controls for, but it's whatever. After more playtime I'll get used to the controls hopefully and we can start playing 2v2's and 3v3's perhaps :). But till then, it's more campaign today!

Fired up Spintires for the first time in a while. Apparently there were some major issues while I wasn't playing, but they've been cleared up since, so that's nice for me. It's not a game I could play for many days in a row, but I do always come back to it, and I think I will continue to do so for a while. There is just nothing else like it.

 

The only think I want is a map with an emphasis on mountainous terrain crossing rather than mostly being oriented around mud. I get that mud is the bread and butter of the game, but I remember one of the earlier demos (which I think had only the jeep) had an object that needed to be picked up on the top of a hill, and it was a serious challenge to get to it without simply rolling over or sliding down the hill. The suspension and physics modeling in Spintires seems to be up to that task, since they had to do it to properly model traction anyway.

 

Still can't do the flood map. I don't really like a lot of water because you can't see. Not being able to see is fair, but trial and error isn't fun on a map like that, especially in my preferred hard mode, because a mistake can cost you a vehicle outright. I should grab the editor, I can probably use that to see where the routes are. Maybe make a map someday too.

Cyber Nations - having to stay up till 1:30am each night so I can effectively fight in my alliance's war. As the #1 nation in my alliance by a large margin, I am trying to lead by example and give the other 60 nations in my alliance a morale boost. A lot of players tend to quit when their nations get attacked by other players, which is a real shame. PvP is a pretty vital part of Cyber Nations, and unlike what some people may think, it's not game over if your nation takes damage... I've taken a ton of damage since I've started back in 2006, and I'm still growing and fighting lol.

I bought into the hype and bought Zelda for my Wii-U. Should be here Monday. I've never played any Zelda games, so we'll see how this plays out.

Got Zelda a little later than planned, about an hour and a half in so far, and it's excellent. For someone coming in blind, it's a great game. Shame I've got to work and then I'm out of town for the weekend. Something to look forward to, though.

Played some Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer yesterday and got to Level 28. I am always amazed to find people still playing such an old game on the Xbox 360, and I hope that continues so I can unlock all the achievements for it lol.

Played the Dark Souls 3 DLC yesterday. Took me a couple of hours to get through it. It's really good. Much better than the first one, in my opinion. However, there's an optional boss that i don't really agree with. Probably one of the hardest boss fights in the Souls/Bloodborne series. And the worst part is that the difficulty feels very artificial. Attacks that either kill you in one hit, or take off 60% of your HP. Attacks that are hard/impossible to dodge. Basically, you can get the boss down to within a few hits of death, then die to some random bullshit RNG attack that's impossible to dodge. Not my idea of good design.
