Cyber Empires for modern day computers and joysticks?




wings7 -> RE: How bout an updated remake of.... (6/20/2016 2:08:33 PM)

Yes indeed! Ubisoft owns the SSI catalog, this would be a great Strategy-Action-Civ type game upgrade! [:)] Here is a DOS gameplay video...

Along the same lines, while we're hitting the SSI Catalog: How bout an updated remake of.... Warhammer 40k Chaos Gate ... 40k tactical offerings are either very limited in scope or not well supported recently ... would love to see that one revived ...




HudsonGame -> RE: How bout an updated remake of.... (6/20/2016 6:26:16 PM)

How about an updated version of Norm Koger's Age of Rifles. It was a great game and had an editor.




warspite1 -> RE: How bout an updated remake of.... (6/20/2016 6:33:17 PM)

Avalon Hill's Bismarck.

What a game that could be. Perfect for solitaire vs the AI too.

You could have the search board just like the board game, but then imagine the possibilities with the other aspects of the game? The battles, carrier management etc. The visuals could be stunning.

Yes indeed again! SSI published and developed some great games and this one certainly was. [:)] The 1998 offering is still enjoyable but I too would like to see it revived...Ubisoft still has control. Here is some gameplay video...

Greybriar -> RE: How bout an updated remake of.... (6/20/2016 6:36:47 PM)

Several companies have tried but none have succeeded in releasing an updated Master of Magic, my personal favorite PC game of all time.

MicroProse & its subsidiary MicroPlay, Strategic Simulations, Inc. (SSI), Strategic Studies Group (SSG), and a number of other PC game companies from years past have numerous titles that are or were favorites of gamers past and present which could be candidates for updating. I would have a hard time choosing a single title--after Master of Magic, of course.

SSI published a computer version in 1980, it was pretty groundbreaking in 1980 [:)]...

Exactly - if it was ground breaking then, imagine what could be done now? [:)]

Updating them all would be fantastic [:)], unfortunately that will not happen [:(], but we can dream...

Hear, hear.




aaatoysandmore -> RE: How bout an updated remake of.... (6/20/2016 7:46:20 PM)

Maybe GOG could pick up some of these titles for using DOSbox and/or some emulators. I'd be happy if my modern day joystick worked with the older version of Cyber Empires. The graphics aren't that bad.

That takes me back in time.

I remember how HMS Hood took 21 15" hits and didn't sink.




Aurelian -> RE: How bout an updated remake of.... (6/20/2016 8:16:56 PM)

Always wanted to see TSR's Star Empires on the PC.

I lent it to a friend twenty years ago and never saw it again.

But I do have the pdf.

I used to hate that when it happened. I finally found a way to overcome my resentments towards those who borrowed things from me and didn't return them by adopting this simple philosophy: I considered anything I loaned to someone to be a "gift" until I got it back. Believe it or not, that relieved my mind.

I just replace it if I can.




Greybriar -> RE: How bout an updated remake of.... (6/21/2016 3:12:30 AM)

Unfortunately, Aurelian, most of the unreturned items were old retail boxed PC games that I had purchased twenty or so years before. Most weren't rare, but it was just a hassle trying to get a boxed copy in as good a condition as those in my collection.

That sucks. The last time I lent out a game, the jerk gave it away. I made him pay retail price for it.

I didn't even play it anymore, (he didn't know that.), but that didn't give him the right to do that

IMHO Emperor of the Fading Suns is like a Sci-Fi WitP-AE, almost the same level of complexity and micromanagement.

Yes and yes. The Age of Wonders series is very good. It must be--I've repurchased all the old games in the AoW series as well as Age of Wonders III from GOG. I have also purchased Endless Legend and gave it a spin. But neither of them got it just right.

There are several other MoM wannabes out there but they missed the mark by even a wider margin.

Yeah, MOM felt like more of an adventure, the others just feel like strategy games with fantasy looking graphics and creatures. I like how they incorporated Civilization into the build and resource management of MOM. The music is 2nd to none and just feels right in a game like that.

AOW III left me wanting in the build dept. You just pick a building wait X# of turns an wallah it was there. You could manipulate farmers and production workers in MOM. Plus, your empire as a whole could be manipulated in that one city could be a great production city while another or two could be food production cities.

AOW I had the kind of siege for cities I liked but, they took it out in AOW III and made some kinda just this part of the castle walls are available to assault.

Now, I do like the combat tactical portion of AOW III (except for sieges) but, that is really about all. I would have liked more races like AOW I had, up to 15 I believe. AOW III allows you only to play with SIX. They just keep taking away it would seem.
