    Like Khitchary, I was hoping for more from the Saga, in particular better choices to make along the trek. On the other hand, they never said it would be much good for replayability.

    I'm not that...

    In my recollection, the pattern was similar for Factions, going up and down with updates, but the numbers were a lot higher (a few dozen online at any given time and a few hundred early-accessers in...

    @Argail:

    KoDP is more replayable, since it has more writing, randomness and choices, in both dialogue and strategy. On the strategy layer, you interact with many citizens of your village, not...

    Well, roder himself is playing Aerena, a multiplayer only tactics game. You have to pay to get in the beta (though I got it in a pay-very-little bundle), but it will be F2P later. Fun stuff.

    Glad you hear you've got A Plan, even if it puts Factions on the back burner. Personally, I'm pretty satisfied with Factions as-is, but simply don't have much of a draw to play. It might not be...

    Hi again. Yeah, if there had been an option to drop all the clansmen at the side of the road (the cynical/easy option), I would have taken it on my first play through, and that would've been a cool...

    @darkwolf: The tactical combat mechanics are quite solid, even if "unintuitive." I think the problem is that the game teaches its combat mechanics, but these are not nearly sufficient to grasp core...

    I'm surprised to be the first to say "I don't care about that." I care about the variety of battles (which was better than I had expected, on account of the varying starting positions), maybe, but...

    It was a good read, and I agree with most of what you said, especially:



    I haven't finished the game yet, but I think strategy (like the caravan's resources) and rails absolutely do not mix....

    Yeah, I'd mostly heard it called "Candy Crush", too. They're filing opposition in response to Stoic's filing (to trademark "The Banner Saga"), not in opposition to Stoic's use of that name; and that...

    I guess the last-hit idea comes from those old console games (FFT, et al), eh?

    I agree that they skew behavior in combat away from (i) killing enemies and (ii) saving allies; and like the...

    I don't think you'll need to copy-paste stuff. It looks like "includes" are doable on gamepedia, too:

    Banging on about which authors inspired which story elements seems pointless to me. I'm clearly not as big of a pulp fantasy geek as some, but I know that Tolkein took his inspiration from somewhere...

    They've had a busy year since releasing Factions, y'know, what with developing that other game of theirs with their team of three. It's really quite incredible that...

    Yeah. I haven't finished yet, but I don't like that prospect (of overwriting my first run-through when I replay) either.

    Also, the single slot shuts down using one copy on one computer for two...

    Nice review! I also hope the community picks back up after the single-player releases. (I haven't played for months, myself.)

    I guess I'd take a step up-left and provoke the thrasher. The outcome from there seems pretty unpredictable (for starters, the enemy could push the PK), but at least it keeps the PK safe from the WM...
