Elemental: War of Magic
If you can get past the rocky game launch, and the pain of registering and then updating it is quite a good Game.Definately need to update the game as it was rushed out the door. But they did a good job of updating and surporting the game .Granted you got to like civ./4x games and turn based/tbs mix but over all a good game with great replay value.
The next big rts/tbs sensation
Wow .. what else can i say.. I have been testing this game and it is simply awesome.. it is the future of tbs/rts games.. this fusion of Brad Wardell's fantasy world and his coding skills combined with the writing efforts of the folks at random house and of course the game design skills of Stardock. have really made something awesome. not only will the game have multiplayer and an awesome single player campaign, it also is shipping with modding tools allowing for user created content.. this includes tile, quest, item and people design and creation... I cant wait to see whats next..
TBS gaming history in the making...
I have to say this is shaping up to be the must have game of rts / tbs generation .. Based of Brad Wardell's fantasy world (he also has book published by random house coming out from this same world) .. Oh and least I forget if you buy the book you will get access to a special mini campaign in the game! The creative mixing process used by Stardock (early and long betas) and the creative input from the random house creative staff, promise a rich and deep world and game mechanic.. I like to call it Civ meets baldurs gate.. I have been playing the game since beta 3 and the changes from beta tester and dev discourse can be readily seen.. not only that Stardock has promised 2 updates. Version 1.1: First major free update (30 days after release) 1. Usual performance, bug fixes, and other optimizations. 2. More optimizations for better Netbook support. 3. Single Player: New Content and Features based on player requests 4. Single Player: AI Wars Version 1.2 (Second free major update (60 days after release) 1. Usual performance, bug fixes, and other optimizations. 2. New Features based on player feedback. 3. Brad's first serious mod example (Mini RPG). 4. Art Package for Modders to use (content for use by modders). 5. Multiplayer: Arena Mode and thats not all they have an incredible set of modding tools coming out that we get to start tinkering with in about a week.. I mean what a roller coaster ride this is going to be.. for more information visit the elemental website!
