    Ok Steam are doing an offer on Empire Total War, it's a fiver. Now I have this game and while it did comepletely suck when it came out it has been patched and is playable. However if you are going to get a gun based Total War game get Napoleon Total War, it's much better than Empire. Only get Empire if you love the time period it's in, which is slightly earlier than Napoleon and you want to kill americans and make sure they never have an independence day. Or if you want to take India. I've sunk 182 hours into this game, which is more than I've put into Napoleon. That is mostly down to not playing Napoleon much on my old lapotop because it actually doesn't play so well as Empire did, I had to have both games running at their low settings. Oh and Napoleon had a lot of bugs on low end computers, higher end ones though didn't have those problems.

    It said something about having Total War offers everyday till Shogun 2 is released so, I'll be checking it everyday.

    Well guys another Total War thing, Rome Total War which is held in high reguard by TW players is in a sale today. You can buy this amazing game for a criminal £1.25. I have the game installed on my PC right now and it looks pretty sweet in 1920 by 1080 glory even after all these years. Rome Total War was used to make a brilliant show on BBC 2 which let ordinary people be generals and replay historical battles. Time Commanders I think it was called. Yep see this is a live post and I just did some research.







    I also watch a guy on youtube who still plays this game online and posts his battles online. It's an old game but its still a playable one. If you like RTS games you need this one.

    I already have Medieval 2, but wasn't there a follow up that had player created extensions like LOTR maps?

    What Po.ppy means is that there was a very good Lord of the Rings mod for Medieval 2 Total War Kingdoms. There was also a Warhammer mod, no idea how good that is because it isn't 40k and it's a bit of a hassle to install. There are some mods which are still being made for M2TW, 2 of the ones that aren't out look very good but are still maybe over a year off being finished, they are taking a crazy long time but are still alive. Stainless Steal is one of the best mods for M2TW, it's the one I use, but you need to be careful when using the real recruitment sub mod for it because one of the options makes the turn time extremely long, like go and make a cup of tea and walk the dog long, and thats just when the games starts when you get really far into the game the turns take even longer.

    Third Age Total War is the LotR mod:

    Click here


    So onto the business of the day, todays offer. Napoleon Total War is only £5.00. Napoleon is what Empire should have been but so wasn't. TW players say that Empire was the beta test for Napoleon. It is a very good game, and a lot of fun, it's not my favourite Total War game because it lacks a few things which gave the pre-Empire games their character and fun, like Generals that you cared about lossing and gave fun speeches before the battle. But if you like Sharpe or the time period it is so much fun, the controls have been refined and are a lot better than the old TW games. Like I said it lacks the character of TW but it is a great representation of the way war was fought at the time and when the smoke fills the battle field and you see flashes in the smoke, it is a sight to behold. It's also different from all the other TW games except Empire because it is range centered not melee, so if you have a TW game already and don't think you need any others this one plays completely differently but with the a nearly the same control system.

    From the demo at least I think that Napoleon looks better than Shogun 2, S2TW looks a bit bare without the smoke and explosions that NTW had.

    If you are interested Shogun 2 is supposed to be giving the TW series back a lot of the character that it lost in Empire.

    Possible annoyance.
    If you try to log into Steam on a pc you haven't done so before, you will have to enter a code to do so. The code is sent to your registered email. It's a security measure. You can turn it off, but if you only use the same pc's to play Steam games on shouldn't ever affect you.

    I don't know much about The Witcher, I took a bit of an interest in The Witcher 2, I thought it was out already but I just looked and it isn't and doesn't appear to have a release date yet other than in spring. At least thats what it says on Steam. So anyone played The Witcher or is a fan of it?

    Defense Grid on offer at the moment 50% off @ £3.49, its also part of the Potato Sack Pack that’s also on offer.


    I got so addicted to this over the weekend I bought it twice! Shocked

    First I got it for my kid on Xbox as it was on offer there, I had played the demo a while back and made a mental note to get it if it ever came up on offer, Then yesterday I was itching to play but Wife was watching Columbo so I thought sodit it’s only £3.50, and downloaded it from steam also, the plus side is I can now download it at work too. Very Happy

    Yep, but hay... it's £3.50 Very Happy

    If you try the demo it's the last one that offers the most interest, the first three are nothing but training, but I think most of the upgrades are unlocked for the last one.

    Blood Bowl legendary edition is £7.50 this weekend. Blood Bowl is a great board game, and this does a good translation on it. Don't care for the real time mode, but classic plays just like the boardgame with fancy graphics and not the badly painted models I end up with. I used to play this loads a few years back. Well worth a look imo, especially if you are in anyway familiar with Games Workshop.

    Hoard is on offer it's 10% off, you can get it for £6.25 instead of £6.99. I played a demo and it is quite fun I suppose, it's a port from the PSP to PC... I think I'd rather buy it on PSP, playing it on PC seems like a waste of power. I'd be more likely to play it on the PSP say when I'm on the loo.

    Very kick ass Mafia 2 is having another 75% off sale today and this time all the DLC is 75% off as well. I didn't get the DLC before but was thinking about it the other day, glad I didn't because the one's I was interessted in were £6.99 each and now I think I can get all the DLC for less than that if I wanted to. Mafia 2 is a very good game I suggest getting it.

    Oooooo 2K Games are having a 4 day sale this week and they have some good games, I'm hoping Boarder Lands comes up, but I'd rather get that on PS3 to play it with a friend, but hey if it comes up in the sale for maybe £3.99 I don't think I can turn that down. Also Bioshock would be nice.

    Hopefully the Civ games don't come up since I have Civ 5, and also the crappy sports games.

    Thanks for heads up I hadn’t logged onto steam all weekend thanks to Minecraft addiction, So I grabbed Mafia 2 while it was still on offer. I wasn’t interested first time around but your review sold it to me.

    Did you buy the DLC as well? I'm about to so I can't say if it's worth getting but the 2 that are £1.57 might be as they add to the story and are normally £6.99 each. I'm buying all of the DLC, I've been fussing over spending £2 on the weaker DLC's which just add clothes and cars, I would spend £2 without even thinking about it on rubbish so I don't know why I'm being so picky about this.

    I'm more interested in the other one actually, since I have no idea what it's about, I don't know whats going to happen in Joe's but I have more of an idea than the other one. They any thing you read about them may well contain spoilers since they are side branches to the main story so I wouldn't look them up.
