Well, clearly you aren't the only one since this is becoming pretty common in games. I'm probably just this grumpy old man telling all the kids to get off his lawn at this point.

I also am really excited that I finally have a two monitor setup at home (and a massive desk for everything) because...I can now play 25-30-year-old RPGs with the maps/manuals/etc. open on one screen and DOSBox open on the other - no more windows or minimizing and all that hassle. I guess what i'm saying is I'm probably not who EA is trying to please, and that's probably best for their bank account.

The base game or the one with expansion pack? You'll need the Fame and Strategy pack to get much more enjoyment out of it, especially if you prefer non-ruler positions.

Currently playing Romance of the Three Kingdoms IX, while also doing a Let's Play of it on my YouTube channel here: The Thirsty Baron.

Sun Fin is among the individuals (friends from Facebook) I have created as officers for my force (He's Gao Feng). I'm planning to play Dynasty Tactics 2 in the future, and maybe ROTK XI as well. I'll also have some other non-ROTK games eventually too: (Morrowind, Rome Total War 1 (with mods), Maximo, Mark of Kri, Socom 2, Far Cry 2, Legend of Cao Cao, Crusader Kings 2, and maybe even Total War: Three Kingdoms) Basically just going through a bunch of games I've enjoyed that either don't have many (or any) HD recordings on YouTube, and that I think are really fun to play.

I'm quite a few episodes behind now, but I'm really enjoying it! Worth watching just to hear Aaron's voice... which is nothing like I expected :lol:
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

I was not blessed by genetics with vocal chords that give me a deep resonant voice like my father has.

Thinking of getting Greedfall. Seems like Spider Studios are entering double A status. Looks like a solid action rpg. I wonder if there are really no fetch quests, as stated in one of the reviews.

Edit 28/09/19.
Out of luck...again :lol: All the physical copies been sold out in my local store. Have to wait now. On the bright side...some patches might come in in the meantime :)
