You guys are doing all wrong. The older you get, the meaner you're supposed to get. It's what young people expect of us. So they can come-over, pat us on our heads, and say how cute we are now that we're old. Then give us a pill. Don't destroy the Tradition!

I mostly conserve what nerd-rage I have for the Star Trek and Star Wars heresy that has sprung up these past couple decades, and for the false prophets who would corrupt the masses with their counterfeit dogma.

Meh.  BSG 2004 rebut > either of them

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

And now bbmike will rant about how Galactica 1980 is the "real Battlestar Galactica".  ::)

The only real Galactica was the one with the HOT blond in the red dress. I'd fly that anytime.  :hehe:

I doubt anyone here is going to make that argument.  ;D

I love Tricia Helfer.  Looks aside, she's also a genuine sweetheart.  :dreamer:

So for anyone who's not been paying attention (which I imagine has been pretty much all of us :P ), Three Kingdoms is once again the most popular game in the franchise.  It's the first time in at least a few years that a historical(ish) title has been the most played Total War game...and that a Warhammer title *hasn't*.  Indeed, Total War historical games in general are seeing increased player numbers as of late, whilst pretty much all three Warhammer games have seen their numbers drop. 



The disastrous launch of WH3, combined with the community's still-simmering anger & resentment over CA's facepalm-ingly idiotic decision to abruptly cease further development of Three Kingdoms, appears to be driving a lot of this recent trend towards the historical Total War titles and away from the Warhammer games.  I really like Cody Bonds' take on the situation, along with the criticism he lays against Creative Assembly.

I played my first Three Kingdoms campaign a few weeks ago - it’s a very deep game and all the factions were difficult for me to wrap my Western brain around. After about 25 hours I stopped…I did not lose but I just got kind of bored and exhausted. Will play it again one day.

Next up soon is Total War: Troy. No plans to start Warhammer III yet, for…clear reasons :/

I really hope there are big TW plans for a new historical game soon.
