Re: Napoleon: Total War

You didn't think that being able to see the weave in the cloth was pretty nuts? The TW games reached a 1 - 1 scale as far as graphics, while ignoring the scale of the battles. 20 generic units to represent an army of at least 100,000? It's more of a first person click fest than a strategy game. May...

Re: Napoleon: Total War

The ship was the HMS Victory and he was on the cliffs of Dover or something. Oh. Erm, okay . . . somehow that doesn't help me like the movie. @Legless Lannes, I wasn't criticizing his accent, I was criticizing the script. It just seems like a bunch of sentences that Napoleon wouldn't say. It's hard...

Sauro... erm, Napoleon, with the Orc... French , landing in the Shire, no wait, England! :mrgreen: If that was Napoleon in the trailer, than you can call me Marie-Louise. Agreed.

Re: What to expect?

I won't be buying it. I decided originally not to buy ETW, was convinced by some friends that it was really worth a look, and buying it vindicated my original decision. I'm not making that mistake again, as at this point I have absolutely zero faith in CA to make something I will want to play. ok, ...

Re: Histwar Les Grognards will be available end of summer

lol, i readed so many times HistWar will release for "X Month" in the official site. Years and years with the same. And this is about 2005. Maybe the real advice is: "The new screen shots will appear in 6 weeks" Gunfreak is right, there have never been official announcements, on...

Re: Monkey Island: Resurrection

I would get both the remake and the new Tales of Monkey Island. I've played through both (well, obviously only the first episode of Tales), and thoroughly enjoyed both.

As most people who read the Depot will tell you, I do not have high expectations for Empire. I expect it to be like Rome or Medieval 2 with a higher number of guns--not a true Napoleonic game.

You can, it's just that your save games won't work any more. MTW:VI actually improves the campaign significantly IMO.

I have an idea, why don't you make a 'Reality mod' for ETW I have no doubt that someone will, and many people will enjoy them. However, the main problems that I fear I will have with ETW will not be fixable with a mod, though. I will, however, attempt the demo and give it the benefit of the doubt.

Still, even if the footage is old, it scares the heck out of me. Just saying, if the alpha versions look like Rome with guns, chances are the final version is going to be quite a bit like Rome with guns. Wasnt that Medieval Total War II? Yes. Which is precisely my point: ETW looks essentially like ...

I guess what's most disappointing to me is that in spite of all of their claims to the contrary, the overwhelming evidence indicates that the tactical battles are mostly unchanged from the previous games.

I saw things in the movies that made me laugh out loud, they were so bizarre.

Online Nappy Military Exercises?

Has anyone else been to the Ecole Militaire on HistWar's French forum? Essentially, what they do is they provide (usually) a map and an OOB and some objectives, and people post their solutions to the problems. Seems like a good deal of fun to me, but not only is the Ecole Militaire read-only, but it...

5-deep firing blocks . . . giant melees . . . yup, it's Rome with guns. Did anyone else find the sound atrocious? The cannon fire, from a distance, sounds exactly like Space Marine bolters from Dawn of War. All of the gunfire sounds way too high-pitched; if I get Empire, I'm going to need to turn th...

I think you underestimate both JMM and the success of LG. LG will never sell anything close to ETW. It's not supposed to. :wink: Also, do you really think that the majority of the people who will buy ETW would buy LG if it came out first? LG will only lose a handful of customers to ETW, because the ...
