  3. Viking Grand Strategy: Pagan expansion in development for Crusader Kings 2

    We've had threads on a documentary about vikings and a TV show about vikings so I figure that a grand strategy game about vikings will be well received here. Crusader Kings 2, as some of you may...

    I'm not a huge fan of how half of the things in this show either are, or are motivated by, someone wanting into someone else's pants. Otherwise, it's pretty entertaining.

    Character progression, in a game with RPG elements? No, let's get rid of it. Totally makes sense.

    I must agree with masterblaster. While I'm sure the logo's details would look perfectly fine when printed as a vector at any size, we have only to look at Arnie's rasterized avatar to see that the...

    Both of the things you've said are also not true of chess, but that doesn't make it a bad game.

    One of the brilliant things about Banner Saga is exactly this. In every other tactics game, the only effective strategy is focus fire on the enemy's most dangerous unit until it dies, which is kind...

    Personally, I find that Raiders are the hardest to score kills with - the fat armour and attack disincentive of Shieldbangers makes them survivable, and the power of Warriors lets them score easy...

    Are you going to throw in Shadow and Wednesday?

    I name my own units after weapons of war - Gustav and Dora were my first two promotes (the free Thrasher, and a Siege Archer), and my other SA is...

    Warhawk and Backbiter.

    A few other abilities are pretty game-changing as well - nothing ruins your opponent's plans quite like running their armour-broken Warhawk straight into a Rain of Arrows...

    I like the square times - they're more like chess, and positioning is much more important when your bulky Varl have difficulty moving on the diagonal. Hexes may be more realistic, but they also make...

    Forum descriptions are way cramped

    I like the forum descriptions, they're a good idea for the influx of new users who don't know what's where yet. But the tight line spacing, small font size, and lack of margins (the little...

    It seems like a lot of effort to remember how many kills people's units have and then screw yourself out of rating and renown just to spite the opponent.

    The two Warrior, four Raider setup is well-known for being very powerful, as you can crush your opponent with pure Strength. I've faced one and eked out a narrow win, but it was close.

    Archers are my favourite unit type. In the early game, a well-placed 4 or 5 break from behind the line turns a Warrior into a massively vulnerable target, and negates the advantage of the...
