if you sign up for chess.com, do a couple lessons (get to the ones about controlling the board) and practice some of the puzzles to reinforce some pattern recognition and you can crush battle chess.

pave the world, friend

i just went to freeplay after a while, i don't think i missed much doing that. i kinda wish the game had multiplayer so i could have a well oiled team of people accidentally exploding the ship with a rookie shooting expensive reclaim off into space

there's a neat special shift at the end of the campaign but other than that not much

yeah being forced to wait through less-than-stellar VO in the Hab was garbage, despite kinda liking the story in the end

ok so i guess it was released a billion years ago and i missed it but the Descent sequel is on hypersale and i'm super pumped about it

I liked descent as a kid but I have and will always love the descent ii soundtrack. Considering overload is 8 bucks for some sort of 4 pack this seems like a good deal.

I have zero interest in the RTS genre but DARWINIA was -lite enough that I gave it a try and I really enjoyed it, love those little T-pose guys and the overall aesthetic was :discourse:

Oh poo poo

A Remaster that I totally missed, and its available as a free update to the original game, which is currently in the Steam sale for less than two quid

If you have any love of RTS-lite, this was a fantastic bit of fun way back when, and I'm planning on doing a replay now I've seen this news.

is it actually on gamep rear end or is it one of those ea games that makes you use their lovely launcher

the worst thing about it is that it has sim city 2000 but the DOS version not the superior windows version

kicks you into ea launcher yeah. never actually bothered playing a game on there, but seems pretty minimal effort if one actually wants one of the game.

I have tried but most of the time i have tried installing anything it just locks up which is about the level of usability i expect from EA. it worked before i went to windows 11 so i'm guessing thats the problem

oh well, not that surprised. even as a bit of a game pass apologist (man it is a good deal) i've never actually recommended anything from the ea catalog, as even if it worked perfectly it is absolutely a wart on it.
