Loved that game.

Used to just build loads of completely useless and unneeded walls around my towers to make them look cooler

They're remaking Stronghold Crusaders.
And I loved the 2nd one

This was the first game i ever played ever

This is still one of my favorite strategy games. It is really detailed ad complex, even if it does lack graphics.

It takes a while to get into. Personally I played with 2-3 real life friends and we just called each other or skyped while playing. They had been playing for about a year before me so  I had quite the advantage. I dont play anymore though.    
ANyways, You really just need to make allies and be a kiss up to whoever is running the area your in. And also, learn who controls what, dont be that noob that tries to move a blue house into a green area then get all pissy when someone wrecks you.    
Just my thoughts, I hope you can learn to enjoy this wonderful game! Good luck!

This was yesterday for me. No regrets.

Is that the BG2 EE?

Whats it like?

Also, why are you not using Viconia? Shes the best NPC in that game and can work with a good or evil party just fine (Except the paladin, forget his name, they fight to the death, hes a bell end anyways so glad Viconia ****** him up).
#92 to #68 - lolscrub (12/11/2013) [-]
its BG1 you can see it on the portraits
he got a party of mincs, jaheira. montaron, Imoen and edwin
why the hell he doesn't have khalid and Xzar i do not know...
User avatar #151 to #92 - kuchikirukia (12/11/2013) [-]
Khalid loses morale too easily, and I didn't need another frontliner. I don't have room for Xzar after unnerfing the fighter multiclasses. (Jaheira is sitting on Grandmastery in Slings and Montaron in Longbows.)
Also, I'm taking this through BG2 (my first time doing BG1-->BG2), so the only one I lose in continuity is Montaron.
#154 to #151 - lolscrub (12/12/2013) [-]
no what i mean was aren't they connect, im pretty sure, you can't kick out khalid without losing Jaheira and the same goes for Xzar and Montaron
#155 to #154 - anon (12/12/2013) [-]
You can if they're dead.
Petrification will also remove them from your party.

Now i just wonder what games will be in 10-20 years. The only way i can see them going now is towards the oculus rift or something, as graphics can't keep getting better with us even noticing.
User avatar #119 to #46 - lifesavers ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
10-20 years? No, I give Nintendo 4 years before they shove Rift's technology in our face and, whether we like it or not, we're going to like it.

play bravely default it's the true smodern successor to the final fantasy serie
User avatar #75 to #74 - mion ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
I don't get why people keep on hating on the new FFs.

Imo they were great. Ofc they're not the "classic" games, but we've had plenty of them (and yet another one with bravely default). I'm not saying that I'm sick of them (which would be nonsense, as I get my 3DS XL with Bravely Default on Saturday), but it was great playing something different.
And FFXV will have a similiar combat system as Kingdom Hearts, and that combat system is actually pretty cool.
#78 to #75 - keybladewarrior ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
I haven't played 13 yet, but I definitely like the new combat. and FFXV looks great as well.
#79 to #78 - ddylann (12/11/2013) [-]
in my opinion the combat system in 13 was ******* awful
User avatar #91 to #79 - demicus (12/11/2013) [-]
You mean mashing X or A, depending on your system? It was utter rubbish.

But then again I actually defended XIV 1.0's combat system, so I must be a raving lunatic. A Realm Reborn is infinitely better.
#129 to #91 - anon (12/11/2013) [-]
To be fair, Attack + Cure was enough to get you through most encounters in other FFs (other than, say, a few bosses), with a little levelling.
User avatar #113 to #91 - mion ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
The Combat System wasn't that different from the original ATB. The only difference is that your gauge now is divided in segments and that you need a different amount of segments for specific actions.
The Paradigmsystem was quite thrilling as well, so it's not that awful as everyone says imo.
User avatar #145 to #113 - demicus (12/11/2013) [-]

But I might just be mad at XIII in general for sending me on about ten hours of gameplay and really not caring at all about anything. Everyone tells me it got better about 15-20 hours in, but that's a pretty bad selling point. Final Fantasy all through Final Fantasy X, the last one I played before XIII, I had gotten some solid character building, the key plot, and good idea what the world was by the first hour.

Again, I may be too harsh, but XIII really just felt bad to me. VIII, IX, X, XIV, loved them. Just not XIII.
User avatar #147 to #145 - mion ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
Well, yes, I agree on the story part, it takes a little bit too much to actually take place (and there won't be so many after reaching Grand Pulse), but I still enjoyed the story, even though half of the characters (rather all of them except Lightning/Fang) are simply too much of a cliché and I was pissed off constantly due to Snow's "Hurrdurr I iz thu hirow!!!!!!" rants. Ugh. Hate that guy so much >.<
But imo FFXIII has some awesome soundtracks... the battle theme itself gives me orgasms everytime the violin part starts >.<

But to each their own, I'd say. Personally, I didn't enjoy FFVII at all (played it half a year ago for the first time), as it was way too overhyped... It isn't even that great, combat system was ok, story imo plainly mediocre but at least the characters were interesting.
User avatar #153 to #147 - demicus (12/12/2013) [-]
Also, I've been seeing these "Lightning Returns" trailers out there, and it makes me like XIII even LESS. Snow is some kind of evil overlord now? What? Serah is an evil cackling witch? Lightning seems to have borrowed half buster sword half magitek and why what who???? The only thing I got out of the video for sure is that cute catgirls get murdered or eaten or ?????? by some kind of wall of shimmery blackness..... ???????????????

I miss the days where it was "Evil queen is trying to conquer the world, we're gonna stop her"
User avatar #156 to #153 - mion ONLINE (12/12/2013) [-]
It's a little more complicated than that, I hope.
Serah died in XIII - 2, the girl you saw is Illumina, a Mixture between Serah and Yule, who also "dies" in XIII - 2.

Well, I'll buy the game anyway, the gameplay seem to be quite interesting, so take mah money, SE, take it, you filthy, gameproducing sluts >.<
User avatar #152 to #147 - demicus (12/11/2013) [-]
I agree, VII does not stand up. Its so fondly remembered because it was 3D, which was amazing at the time, and it had Aeris getting killed, which was pretty rare. But looking back it wasn't that good.

IX is still my favorite. Music, story, characters, everything was great fun. It wasn't perfect, nothing is, but it was great.
User avatar #106 to #79 - themurp (12/11/2013) [-]
FF12 had the best combat system by far.
#138 to #106 - ddylann (12/11/2013) [-]
yes totally satisfying and i cant tell you the relief of not having to switch screens every ******* battle
User avatar #131 to #106 - admiralen ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
if by best you mean worst... 10 had the best
#139 to #131 - ddylann (12/11/2013) [-]
dude ten was no different from every game before it
User avatar #140 to #139 - admiralen ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
except its fight system wasnt the same as the ones before it, it pretty much perfected the turnbased combat system. while 12 pretty much failed all round on its version
#141 to #140 - ddylann (12/11/2013) [-]
ya i suppose ten was like the epitome of turn based but 12 was just trying to change it up after eleven games of similar combat. i didnt like 12 it at first but once you unlock all the options and really get a feel for it i loved it. and you gotta admit its nice to just be able to stay in the overworld and not have to go into a transition and crap
User avatar #142 to #141 - admiralen ONLINE (12/11/2013) [-]
i admit that the transition is a pain in the ass, but 12s combat system felt stiff as hell, and most of the time it felt like there was no control
#143 to #142 - ddylann (12/11/2013) [-]
it was more about the set up of your tactics before the actual battle and then just kinda winging it when you had to change it up on a harder enemy but i know what youre saying
#135 to #131 - anon (12/11/2013) [-]

I've tried so hard, but the first two Elder Scrolls are beyond terrible due to their controls. The first great game was Morrowind.
User avatar #65 to #5 - siveon (12/11/2013) [-]
Terrible? A bit. I thought of it Elder Scrolls 1 as a bashing Ultima Underworld clone simulator and got through most of it like that.
Daggerfall is just the procedurally generated version.
User avatar #105 to #65 - murphypop (12/11/2013) [-]
I've played (or at least tried to play) all 5 main games, but I just couldn't play the first two because they had those weird mouse-based controls. And it makes me sad, because I don't get any of the lore from those first two games.

I started with Oblivion, moved to Skyrim, then came back to Morrowind. Morrowind was a bit of an adjustment, but I feel it has the best immersion and best lore (at least the most in-depth and foreign).
User avatar #107 to #105 - murphypop (12/11/2013) [-]
Although I just came across something that might help...

Apparently it gives it Morrowind-like controls.

Coming from someone who loves Zelda games and praises the series as one of the greatest franchises ever made, I have to note that the "Now" picture of zelda games came from a Wii-U tech-demo with much better graphics than any current Zelda game. If you wanted to show the best in-game zelda graphics, you'd have to go with Wind Waker HD...

If you on the other hand wanted to show the most recent game, you'd have to go with A link between worlds.

The new anno looks strange, granted I've never played it before but am a big fan of the 1602 and even the 1503 version.

I like 1602 AD I've never played the 1503 before, how is it? Is it very similar?

User avatar #35 to #33 - deepgreen (12/11/2013) [-]
1503 was fun although personally I thought it was a bit too extensive. Getting an army going was really hard, but I had a lot of fun playing it nonetheless. And keep in mind, I played this game when I was about 12 years old or something and I was quite the casual player back then.
TLDR: they're very similar although I think 1503 went even more in depth which can become a little bit tedious at times but I still had a lot of fun playing it.

Anno 1602, marvellous choice good man. It's a game where the focus lays with an economy. You build houses (where your people live. You start off with wooden ones, but as they get more items they want, they'll develop. First the more classy wooden ones, then stone ones, then expensive stone ones, and eventually they'll be aristocrats with a ******** of demands), civil buildings (schools, fire fighter, doctors, etc.), and production buildings. (woodcutters, stone masons, food production buildings, mines, everything needed to build and run a settlement)

There are different types of islands, and on all islands there are but three specific resources available (iron and gold are on some islands, but only in the mountains), while wood and stone are available on any islands with forest and a mountain. But the main thing your settlers require from the third level on, are spices, tobacco products and wine (aside food and that). You have cacao, wine (producable in two ways, hence two resource fields), spices, tobacco and cotton, and only three of them can grow on a specific island, if you want all, you'll need to colonise multiple islands.

It's fairly easy to play, and user friendly. As a frequent Anno 1602 and Anno 1503 player, I really recommend them.
User avatar #120 to #8 - zameckis (12/11/2013) [-]
it's sounds quite fancy
is war element included also?
like rising an armies, something like that?
#144 to #120 - insanefreak (12/11/2013) [-]
There is, but it is less 'present' in the first one. I suggest 1503 if you want to get more warfare into action.

To build ships, you need wood and cloth, and money. To raise troops, equipment and money. You generally manufacture the equipment yourself, but you can buy it (expensive and not a stead flow) from other players, or sometimes, the CPU traders.

You can make musketeers, cavalrymen, artillery and soldiers (guys with a sword), but that's it. In ship terms, there are four ships, small trade ship, big trade ship, small war ship, big war ship, that can all be equipped with cannons.

In 1503 however, there are bowmen, crossbowmen, gunners, mortars, cannons, six ships, different cavalry soldiers, much more resources. Basically, everything 1602 has, and far more, making the game more fun to play for those who like an easy-going, but much more intense and in-depth game.

Personally, I suggest 1602 for a starter, to get a feel of the game. You'll get addicted to it in no time, and 1503 has a nice campaign to keep you busy for weeks, months, possibly years. It's fun, and breathtaking.
User avatar #148 to #144 - zameckis (12/11/2013) [-]
i see, your description about this game is brief, yet acute
it's makes my curiosity over to be said game rising tremendously.
thanks for your time, sir insanefreak
#149 to #148 - insanefreak (12/11/2013) [-]
I strongly suggest the game, I really do. I found and still find it amazing. Especially if you play them in order, as difficulty and graphics quality increase with each game. Also the amount of ingame animations grows, like people leaving their house to go shopping, the combat scenes, etc.

I have the 1701 game as well, but I haven't dared to touch it for years, due to the simple fact that I know I'll end up hopelessly addicted to it, and I lack the time to play it.

Oh! Lest I forget, the music in the games, while classic, is a marvellous addition to the game, that truly makes it magnificent. Be it combat, disaster, discovering a new island, almost anything has a perfect soundtrack to go with it, and it changes automatically.

I am sure you will love this game. If you buy it, I wish you the best of luck, and should you have any questions regarding a strategy you'd like to use, feel free to contact me. Good luck with your colonisation, sir Zameckis.
