I've been playing Crusader Kings II a lot lately. Before that it was Commander: Conquest of the Americas (I've been getting all my older games reinstalled on my new system)

Rome Total War -- Roma Surrectum 2.5 mod
this gets us back to about summer
Fallout New Vegas
Skyrim

I actually reinstalled 'Pirates!' the other day; amazing how well that game has aged.

Distant Worlds is the only 4X I have found that is worth repeatedly sinking hours in to.
Apart from DW I play Blood Bowl in online leagues and Mechwarrior Online :)

Did create a post with exactly the very same topic several onths ago. Got thrown out into the general discussion area once it reached 2 pages long.

Discuss ONLY distant worlds!

Been playing assassin's creed 3, hitman: absolution, and some other latest crap. Very very boring indeed. Back to DW already and just after a two-week break. Once a strategy gamer, always a strategy gamer. Playing some 7.62 with blue sun mod for some tactical fix. That's it really. Hate my job.... My mother-in-law a.k.a the world destroyer is visiting us this weekend.

.... .... Wish me luck, guys....

Hey Ehsumrell, time to cut back on work, sex and sleep!!!!
Happy upcoming b'day, my alien friend.

After a long stint of playing DW I baught Civ5 Gods & Kings and the expansion, Alien Crossfire to Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. (An oldie classic) Enjoying both very much. And will continue playing those until DW Shadows emerges from the shadows.

Surprised no one mentioned AI war. Game is a little daunting but very good as you can pause like you can in DW. Its very similar I think in game mechanics as DW. You should check it out. Graphics arent the best but the game play is great as well..

Civ 5 with 2 mods Gem and CivUp. This is in striking distance of being better than Civ 4 and all its expansions. DLL is giving modders the tools to do it.

Sots 2 single during the week and multi on the weekends.

Borderlands 2 Coop with friends once every other week. Planetside 2 once ever other week with buddies. Winter break is a week away!

I had another dead harddrive a few months back. Need to finish Walking Dead.

I am also going through Dragon Age Origins slowly with lots of mods on nightmare. Also Mass Effect 1 Insanity (Will playing all ME games). (I won't finish either until summer 2013)

I got Alpha Centauri complete for 5$ for Christmas. Can't wait to play that.

Oh ya derp Fallen Enchantress too!

School keeps me busy but finals are almost done!

You're right Ehsumrell. I also been playing the other real time 4X strategy game, Imperiam Galactica 2. A seldom heard of moldy, oldie that has good ground combat. I played through the campaign on easy for all 3 factions and the Kra'han on normal difficulty level. For some reason the designers made the difficulty level very hard on normal for the campaigns and scenarios.

I recommend to my forum friends to pick this title up if you can find it at reasonable price. It's no DW but it's good for a distraction.

Master of Orion I mainly.
I get my hands on StarDriver recently and it play well but not great(still its beta and closed so things will be better).
I really wanna try to get into DW recently but lack of real economics/trade and clunky ship design still didn't let me.

I'm not playing DW at the moment... waiting until the expansion.

I'm currently playing the War of the Roses, Conquest of Elysium 3 (a surprisingly very fun game), and Crusader Kings II. Switching between these when I have the time...

Antmf- http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3215081 and also if your a multiplayer guy its ready, singleplayer can still use some love (every update its gets tweaked). Also won't be a bad idea to grab it on a sale, Steam Christmas sale is coming. Right now its 20$ for the game and expansion (expansion comes free).

Its playable but still clunky. AI still dead brain.
No fun. Not fun at all. At last for me.

I just fired up Oblivion. Done some very serious Modding for Morrowind back in the day and have just picked up the 5th Anniversary Edition for a fiver from Game. Well impressed is not the word, thought Morrowind was good and must admit I had steered clear of Oblivion because of the 'dumbing down' for console owners. Doesnt seem as bad as I thought though.

Still cant pull me away from DW though, time to continue tweaking Darkverse

Play Birth of the Federation. Still dreaming somebody make the sequel. If only we could design our own ship in Birth of the Federation, it will be a perfect game for me.

That's what I get for BUYING YOU a copy of Stardrive?

It's not propaganda; it is legitimately the best 4X game I've played in years. It is a more streamlined version of DW. I've recently grown an appreciation for DW that I didn't have before - hence why I'm on these forums - but Stardrive has the potential to blow it away.

Stop hating, Sariss. Just because you're a cat doesn't mean you get to be mean ;)
