None sadly. I'm just someone who really hasn't found a game hat I will always play. There are ones I go back to every few months and like Over Flanders Field P3, usually when I get a WW1 RFC obsession going again. I'd still go and play COTA but BFTB UI has spoiled m and I end up missing certain things to much. Also I probably go back every blue moon to play CMBN and really need the commonwealth moduel and maybe I'd play it alot more.

Still on the whole there aren't any games that stand out and I play lots over years.

2) When struggling in the past finance-wise, my brother gave me some sage advice: "X-Com is a business. Run it like one." Get those engineers to work and sell stuff. Relying completely on the monthly government handout is a recipe for failure.



Been a while since I played this one, but if memory serves, the best early game tactic for boosting your economy is to outfit your guys with stun guns and raid the cultists and gangs. There are two advantages with this tactic.

First there is a lot more shots taken during a mission since the stunned guys get up after a bit and need to get hit again, sometimes multiple times before their side loses. This helps train up your guys early in game. Second, as long as you don’t kill anyone there are no loyalty hits to other organizations that like the people you are raiding, and you get to keep all their gear so you have lots of stuff to sell and use early in game.

Later in game you’ll have plenty to do to keep you busy with all the downed space ships and organization attacks, but for the first few weeks this tactic really helps a lot.

Jim

LucasArts Rebellion/Supremacy.

But can I get it to work with Windows 7?

No luck so far

I recently revisited the Battleground Series. These are very attractive games, especially in using John Tiller's 32-bit upgrades. I saw no need to buy the Matrix versions, as I've had the previous Talonsoft versions for several years. The ones I own are Gettysburg, Shiloh, Antietam and Bull Run. I've personally visited 3 of the 4 sites, with Antietam being the exception.

The Shiloh battlefield is well-kept, Gettysburg is a must-visit, and Bull Run (Manassas) has changed the most.

Now, as for the games, the AI is not very good, but apart from that, these are beautifully -designed. I epecially enjoy the zoomed-in 3D views of the game maps.

Ive been all over Shiloh, my wife was born and raised not 6 miles from there(Crump, Tenn.)  Infact we found a 6lb. smoothbore cannon ball in the mud of snake creek just off of the battle park.  It had about 300 plus round lead balls inside of it along with the black powder packed between the balls.  The powder still smokes but will not flash.  The ball is a hollow iron shot with the packed balls(it is not a cannister round).  We removed the 5 second fuse plug years ago.  If I remember correctly, you could puncher 2 to 5 second slots to set the time for the round to explode.

I was born 42 miles from Shiloh and visited it often as a teen. My now adult sons and I have visited 6 times over the last 18 years(since they were 10 and 8). It is a beautifully preserved park. We have also visited Vicksburg, Stones River, Chattanooga, Appomattox, Gettysburg, Antietam, Bull Run and Chancellorsville. BUT Shiloh is special to us and it never gets old roaming that battlefield.

Shiloh is one of the last untouch battlefields.  The farming areas around Shiloh are always finding civilwar gear.

Yes, it was a long but worthwhile ride several years ago from Cleveland. I remember thinking, "I want to be a Shiloh guide when I retire." That's when people thought they would retire

I have never played the fallout series. Is it like Hellgate: London? Where would be the best place to start and is it downloadable?

Playing Fallout I recommend starting with the first/second one. They are the originals.
You can get them on GOG. Dont forget the patches from NoMutantsAllowed.

Fallout 3 and up don´t have much to do with the original Fallout (except the setting).
Though they are great games too.

I was playing Rome Total War again last night. Those German spearmen are tough if you can't outflank them.

Funny when I am really tired of the newer mainstream games I simply play Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 plus the expansions plus Icewind Dale 1 and 2 and especially Planescape Torment! Heck I own the original boxed copies but DL them from GoG.com (Good old Games) as they are already configured to work in Win7 64 bit. Anyhow just can't seem to ever want to finish those games, just want to play them. I guess I am an OCD RPG player at heart.

For me, it is War Plan Orange. I know it has its shortcomings and is based on WitP's original game engine, but I just love the concept of a hypothetical 1920s Pacific conflict!
