Age of wonders 3....kind of
it just dosen't click with me for some reason, and the whole thing is becoming tiresome.
does anybody else has this problem?
Not at all, actually. I really enjoyed AoE 3, despite its obvious similarities to the Civ franchise, but those games are up my alley to begin with, and I really enjoyed the battles, especially large multi-hero dungeons and sieges, along with the really big spells, etc.
It CAN slog and in some scenarios, your beginning grind can seem like a major endeavor, so I get that.
Let's get the ball rolling for 2018 :)! Hard West
I normally enjoy turn-based combat games, so I thought I would enjoy this one. However, this game just did not fit well with me for the following reasons:
- Uneven/unfair combat mechanics. Specifically: the enemy has an overwatch ability, but the player does not.
- Checkpoint saves only. (Oh how I loathe thee, checkpoint saves!) To be fair, there is a quicksave feature which is dubbed experimental (or similar term), I did not attempt it because I don't want to risk using a not-fully-implemented feature which may end up messing up the whole game at a later point.
- Mostly text-based choose-your-own-adventure type minigame between tactical battles where random choices have random effects. This just felt really out of place to me, and not at all enjoyable in my opinion.
In all fairness I did not progress very far before quitting, but I had had enough by that point anyway.
Yeah, I actually had to set this one aside myself, because while I want to like the Jagged Alliance similar combat system and other things, the cards were just boring af, and despite the short instances, those seemed fairly boring as well, especially when you have to mine/etc on top of it. It just seemed too busy.
