  1. The games that spring to mind are Supreme Commander where your command mech could be customized, also Dawn of War/Company of Heroes had customization of what weapons your squads were carrying. Not sure if they did them particularly well, just the only games I can think of right now. Dawn of War also let you do custom paint jobs for your units which was super cool and something I wish more Warhammer games would let you do as its a big part of the Miniatures game.
  2. My favorite RTS game is Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, no other game since has captured the scale of that game, plus with modern PCs the game can finally run ok, it used to be a real system hog. Another older favorite is Sins of a Solar Empire, another massive sci fi RTS. The Total War series might be worth a look as well. Shogun 2 is a good starting place, from there if you want a better overworld go with Three Kingdoms, if you want more army/faction variety Warhammer 1/2 are the way to go. A few other strategy games I would recommend: Mutant Year Zero Into The Breach The Company of Heroes series The Dawn of War series Command and Conquer, specifically Red Alert 2 and Tiberian Sun The Homeworld Series Warcraft 3 Defcon As for mice here are a few of the ones I have liked over the years MX Master 3: MX 518: G 602:
  3. Army Men Around the House.

    These are really fun!
  4. Idle Thumbs Readers Slack & Discord

    Cat-chat, nintendo, cooking, the politics channels are all pretty active.
  5. Stranger Things

    Finished the season last night. Overall I thought it was ok but I was getting quite annoyed by all the lazy tropes and heavy handed product placement. I am not sure if I care if Season 4 happens or not, a lot of the plot feels like it’s been spinning it’s wheels for the last 2 seasons.
  6. Photos of things

    I went whale watching yesterday. One of the baby humpbacks was having fun breaching Album:
  7. I have this a lot, I can sometimes be picky or just have a bad first impression of a game and never go back to it. Most recently I bounced off Breath of the Wild, I found the weapon switching to be annoying, then got confused by cooking and never looked up a guide on how to do it. It was a pretty game I was interested in exploring but I just never got back to it. I also find that some games interest me but their mechanics super don't. I Tried to get into Ashen (my first soulslike) and hated the combat a ton. However because I was on PC I just cheated my way through to explore the world and see where the story went. Planning on doing the same when Sekero goes on sale
  8. Looking for TBS recommendations

    There are currently 3 campaigns in the game and I am legit stuck on the hardest one
  9. Recently completed video games

    I finished Metro Exodus and found it overall to be fine. I never really liked the first two Metro games because of how linear they were. Exodus had some cool moments, but ultimately still very linear level design which is too bad as there were some larger more open zones that were never fully utilized. Just play a STALKER game instead. Also finished Diablo 3 on the Switch, playing on a controller is very nice, I'm sad they never brought support for controllers to PC.

    I can't decide where Totally Accurate Battle Simulator fits in the world of strategy games. Its real time, but you have no control over your units once you hit start. All of your input takes place in terms of unit type and placement. I have gotten far enough in the campaign that its actually challenging not just a lark. Very enjoyable game
  11. Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield

    I have only played Blue and Lets Go Eevee because I didn't own a Nintendo handheld between the Game Boy Color and Switch. I'm excited to play a new Pokemon game. That being said I am sad to see that the game will have random encounters instead of the Lets Go style of having the pokemon visible on the map. Hopefully they keep some form of Lets Go's xp sharing so you don't have to do tons of swapping in and out to level your team. I am also interested to see how a modern pokemon game stacks up against World of Warcraft's pet battle system. I found move cooldowns, specific turn counters for sleep/paralysis/stun moves followed by a temporary immunity to those, pet type bonuses beyond strong against/weak against and higher level pet capture fights having multiple enemies interesting challenges in WoW. I am under the impression that very little has changed in Pokemon since Blue. I haven't decided on a started but am leaning towards the leaf monkey.
  12. 1.0 came out and after really liking the game at launch I am pretty disappointing so far. Building too big of a tether system causes massive lag every time to place a tether, which is a huge problem in the early game. There is no real tutorial and the research screen is a mess, i cant figure out what items do until after i research them and often end up researching things I cant build because the starting planet doesn't have certain resources. Research is also quite slow now which would be more ok if I knew what I should try and get. Driving is still quite bad, the early vehicles can't really handle any kind of obstacle, my first one fell down a tiny fissure into a cave where it will remain because stalagmites are too abundant to make driving underground reasonable. The terrain tool still doesn't seem to work properly. The game showed promise but i think they went for complexity over play ability here
  13. The new season of Punisher is bad. The writing is almost hilarious in how sloppy it is, the plot, new characters and villain are formulaic and uninteresting. I won't be sad when it gets cancelled. Is Jessica Jones the only other marvel show still going on netflix?
