While chatting on Discord for a totally unrelated game, I came across an rtk fan "out in the wild" so to speak. Picked him out from his Dynasty Warriors avatar. Immediate geek connection: "I have the annotated Moss Roberts edition" "Oh yeah I have that one but I like the Brewitt-Taylor style better". Threw out SoSZ and the guy knew it. Small world :-)

It got me thinking about this game so I just wanted to drop in and say hi to you guys. Hope everyone is doing well!

The looming release of Total War: Three Kingdoms reminded me to take a break and check back here after months of being "busy".

It makes me feel feelings. I don't think we'll ever get another game at this point, because I'm super pessimistic, but I'll keep checking in periodically like a crazy, obsessed weirdo and make off-hand remarks about people and things. And also to hurt my heart by forcing myself down a nostalgia trip back to the good ol' days of serving Zi Shang and Peng Chao, then ruling as Bei "Mr Steal Yo Gurl" Baorong, and my limited run as that shady guy with the girl follower who was constantly joining lords to try to manipulate them and only got marginally close in the Deep South.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I seem to have gotten dust in my eyes... :cry:

Looking forward to the Total War Three Kingdoms game reminded me of my time here about 15 years ago. Wanted to stop by and say cheers to you all!

Hello, Kairo! I don't know if I trust this Total War game, though. Did you see where they were linking to on their dev blogs for their reference materials? ;)

They pushed Total War: Three Kingdoms back to May.

I'm both excited and enraged by this. I was literally about to send an email letting my boss know I'm not coming in on March 8th when I saw the announcement. So now my nerd vacation gets pushed back two months.

And this is the first time I've ever actually scheduled time off for a video game, surprisingly...

A delay is good in the hopes of making the game playable, but I just don't have high hopes personally for a Total War game. I've been burned too many times in the past. As someone who prefers the things you can do on a strategy map more than mid-battle unit micromanagement, it's just not my type of game. I get much more playtime out of Paradox games lately...

In the words of the Prophet Shigeru Miyamoto: "A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever."

From what I've read, it's a good thing. There weren't any catastrophic or game-breaking bugs that delayed the game, they just got some reviewer feedback and wanted to take some more time to improve them and polish the game some more before launch.

I never really got into the Paradox strategy games, despite owning a few. Not sure why, as it's my kind of thing in general. Maybe I'll give them another go...

Turns out I'm not the only one who got nostalgic after hearing about the Total War Game.

Wishing you all well!

Yes, I did see who they're linking to. It reminded me that I still have an account here AND I remember the password to it!
