Empire: Total War
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:49:49 PM »

I know a member or two mentioned they play the Total War series of Turn-Based/RTS games, so I was wondering if you plan on picking up Empire: Total War when it comes out in February?  One of the features I loved from the game Imperial Glory was the ability to actually command the naval battles instead of waiting for the computer's results and it seems like 3D naval battles will finally be added in this installment.  Also, it seems a lot of new features will help to add to the realism and add a few more challenges.
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

I can't wait. It comes out just after my birthday.

I would get it if my computer would actually run it!  ;D
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

I am in complete and total agreement :D :D

Definitely. I must've spent thousands of hours on that series by now. It keeps getting better each time. I'm excited to see how the game looks with DX10.
