I used to love the RTS genre, but it hasn't aged well. Zones and heroes are bullshit. Gimme a map, some resources, and ... uhh someone watch my kids for me. And hold my beer. I mean get me a beer.

 

RPGs are muh thing lately. Favorite of all time might be the mount and blade series.

Factorio.

 

Rimworld.

 

Everything else fades into the distance.

 

 

I've been playing a super modded x100 difficulty factorio run right now.  It's literally taking months, which is exactly what I was looking for.  Just getting started on tearing down and rebuilding my factory for the fourth time.

I don't game much anymore.  mostly racing games with the kids.  sometimes I still play super punch out.

 

I used to be into RTS and FPS but I haven't really played that stuff in a while.

Factorio.


Never heard of this. Looked it up and had Railroad Tycoon flashbacks. Bought it and have been playing it all morning. Thanks, but also, damn you :P

Getting really good at deleting my post instead of quoting them.

Anyway battlezone is as good as I remember. Awesome blend of space tank combat and strategy/field management. Still looks pretty good.

On sale for $5: https://store.steamp...ezone_98_Redux/

Waiting for Factorio to go on sale.

Factorio doesn't ever go on sale. They state it on the Steam store page.

Well, crap. I guess I'll play through battlezone and just buy it, then.

Still playing my super steroidal amped difficulty factorio.  It's getting a lot harder to play when drunk.  :D

The Factorio demo is pretty promising so far. Definitely will need to play on the desktop, however. Too much for a 13" ultrabook, both in terms of seeing detail and the amount of CPU heat produced.
