I'm looking for a historical based (I'm a history nerd) strategy game that is a recent or soon to be released title. I've grown tired of Civ V.
Age of Empires series?
I've been eyeballing Europa Universalis IV and Total War: Rome II but I don't know anything about either of those series of games to trust buying either. There isn't nearly enough information I can find to make a decision. Ideally I would like to hear from veterans of the series firstm or even veternas of the genre.
Hi people, let me just get to the point real quick,
I'm looking for an rpg game, will list the ones I already played,
Dragon Age series,
Mass Effect series,
Elder Scrolls series,
Tried but couldn't get the hang of it,
Planescape: Torment (struggled with the controls a bit, didn't like the old textures so quit after a few minutes, I'm aware that it's regarded as a masterpiece)
Kingdoms of Amalur
Neverwinter Nights series(camera controls and angles, just can't manage to play like that even when it's tweaked)
Fallout: New Vegas
King's Bounty series.
I like great stories, sci-fi, fantasy, dialogue, and the element of decision-making. Combat is not important as long as it's not too radical that it alienates the player, or camera problems&controls are a bitch to deal with.
I don't like hack&slash, action-rpgs without dialogue or decision making.
If any of you can give me suggestions, or a way to make Neverwinter Nights 2 camera controls more like World of Warcraft, Witcher or Dragon Age, I would be more than grateful.

Madokbro: Divinity 2: The Dragon Knight Saga; Fable 3; the singleplayer KOTOR games. Another good game, but more shooter based than most games above, is Deus Ex (the original or Human Revolution, the second game was designed for consoles and has had far too many concessions made).
I'm hoping someone can suggest me some good Android or 3DS games I can play without an internet connection. I'm headed for the pyrenees in a few weeks and I need something I can play in the car during travel. I'm primarily looking for RTS (NOT TBS) and RPG games, but please no platformers.
Yes, I still live with my parents at 25.
Yes, I think PC is the best gaming platform.
Yes, I am better than you.
So I'm off to Salou tomorrow on holiday but cant decide on what machine to take.
3DS I have
Pokemone Black and White 2
Zelda Oracle of ages and seasons
Super Mario Land 3D
Plus a ton of DS games.
Vita I have.
Street Fighter X Takken
Also, what will you be doing on holiday? If I am going to be out a lot, being active, etc. I prefer my 3ds because it's easier to just toss in my backpack or pocket (well, purse for me) and not worry much about it than the vita.
3DS, a few good time killing games are Animal Crossing New Leaf, Harvest Moon: A New Beginning, and Fire Emblem: Awakening. Pokemon B/W is a great time killer as well for long trips, as well as Mario Kart.
When I went to Europe in spring I brought mine in this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/POWER-A-3D...S-Dsi/15819457
It holds a pretty nice amount of games, and also has compartments for the charger and other accessories.
The 3DS gets my vote. The Vita does have some really good games, but the 3DS library is just a lot larger in terms of good games, and there are more titles coming out in the future that will make it more worthwhile, imo. I want a Vita too, but only when there is a significant price drop. To me, that'd be the only time that it's actually worth it.
Well, I'm pretty bored this summer, and I got tired of WoW, so I'm looking for a new MMO to test and have so fun for a little while. Something new, no Wow-clones. Any sugestion or will I have to wait for Wildstar?
e.g. in europa universalis 4 you will be able to play aztec, why not conquere europe?(even with huge technologic malus).
One big difference is that europa universalis is real time and total war is turn based
The Total War games are more design around battle where europa universalis is more the management of your empire (diplomacy and such).
you could watch some youtube of both
Europa Universalis 4 :

If I'm trying out a new game and I'm not enjoying it a lower levels, should I force myself to keep playing and reach the endgame before I make a decision or should if I'm not enjoying it at low levels should I just try something else?
Is there anything out there like Dungeon Keeper?
I've already played DK 1 and 2, as well as Evil Genius. I made the mistake of buying a few games on Steam that people said were "Dungeon Keeper-lite" like the Dungeons series, but they are garbage and I'm glad I got them for cheap.
Some would ask
"How could a perfect God create a universe with so much that is evil?"
They have missed a greater conundrum
"Why would a perfect God create a universe at all?"
