Red orchestra. 1 is technically better, but the upcoming game will be good.
The company is under fire a lot but they arent bad at all, theyre better than some v approved companies like nintendo.
Romans, kinda. It's not like they were conquering the world for tournaments, but they were conquering the world for slaves and they used slaves for tournaments (among other more necessary uses, like working the fields).
reminds me of my first E:TW campaign

It seems to me that you could make even more in depth political interaction than crusader kings, yet it seems that all grand strategy games prefer to concern themselves with map painting. it's a bit sad desu.
Fuck, I'd actually prefer to play something like an individual or a family, with the goal being to build prestige in the empire with martial aspects just being part of that and mainly focusing on politics. is there anything like that?
It looked interesting but I can honestly say, having played several hundreds of games, The Guild (might have been The Guild 2) has the least comprehensible interface of any game I've ever played.
Can anyone link me up with the latest edition of Ck2+DLC and HIP?
Paradox games are as much of an excel simulator as you want them to be - you can go full Arumba and make everything about the smallest RNG rolls, or you can be a casual pleb who ignores 90% of what's in the game and just play easy nations.
Play regional powers meng, I still struggle playing any of the majors. Nothing quit like assisting Germany in Barbarossa and Italy in North Africa (or trying to hold out against them).
I love Paradox games in general but I literally can't play EUIV.
Every time I try I can't wrap my head around the fucked up arbitrary rules and mechanics. I don't know if I'm just retarded for getting frustrated with such an easy game, or it really, really is as awful as /gsg/ says it is.
I made the UK release it in a war, and then Rebels instantly rose up. Thing is it was three separate rebel armies so they all siege each others provinces infinitely, so India can't actually get anything done and is just sitting there
Most have been mentioned here already, but as far as total war games go. Medieval 2 with Stainless Steel 6.4 installed is one of the best mods I've ever played.
Another I've not seen noticed is Mount and Blade, if only for the exceptional modding community who released gems like Brytenwalda and 1257ad.
I'd recommend those two games with those mods and CK2. Everything else listed I found 'somewhat' repetitive and droll after a time.
Is this game /his/ approved? Thinking about picking it up. Does it have alot of story content?
Sometimes /gsg/ doesn't know what it's talking about. To truly start off, I suggest CK2 or EU3 (better than EU4) depending on what time period you're more interested in. After that move on to EU: Rome or Victoria 2. If you're a true autist, you can graduate to the Hearts of Iron series.
Eu4 is probably a good start if you've never really played a grand strategy before. What's really bad about it is it tries to encapsulate one of the most tumultuous eras in european and world history (1444-1821) and incorporate gameplay elements that can apply to the entire time period, but everything seems fairly disjointed, shallow or out of place. The game's "arcadey", which makes it fun for the people that like to hyper-blob or do stupid shit like that, but from a /his/ autist's point of view it kinda sucks.
Play it for a couple weeks, learn the ins-and-outs, decide on what you like and then move on to a better grand strategy game that goes more in depth or simply does better the elements that you like in Eu4.
It really is better with all the DLC but if you're really just using it as a stepping stone to a better game then i would recommend you just pirate it.

A story driven RPG with Deus Ex stats and choice driven gameplay where you play as one of several great leaders in a time period, and define a great conflict. This would be great if set during the Third Crusade of the Norman Conquest especially. Would also take Mongol China.
A game that covers several different modern wars you can choose to play in as some people form the chain of command and make tactical decisions on a map or watching a battle and the rest play as actual soldiers on the ground as they attempt to coordinate to win the war

How historically accurate is the Witcher series?
It never claims to be historically accurate, even though it's literally medieval Poland with elements of fantasy.
Most the content, such as armies, cities, clothing, and culture is inspired and accurate to the real world.
Besides that, the game is fantasy and should be viewed as such. You shouldn't argue historical accuracy with fiction.... Unless you're talking about the shit storm that is Assassins Creed.
> How historically accurate is the series about humans escaping their dimension because we nuked everything to one and is now living in a world full of elves, zombies and dragons.
Shit, that's a toughie. Really between Hearts of Iron and Steel Panthers I've got my fix, I'd say.
Divide Et Impera, you can get it on Steam Workshop.
Decent but buggy as fuck and CA is putting all their resources into Warhammer that it doesn't seem like it's gonna get patched anytime soon. The Grand Campaign is meh tier, but the DLC campaigns are totally worth it.
I usually don't respond to 18 hour old posts but I need to make an exception for this level of faggotry.
Knights of Honor? C'mon 150 posts and no one even mentioned it! It's a great game. Having the ability to have a control on every aspect of your empire - religion, economy, infrastructure, military.. and even have the chance to lead your troops on the battlefield.
The campaigns get so good as the ball rolls
I should make super Dukes instead of Kings, right?
It impressed the fuck out of me when I realized that AoC contains the Medieval 1 Viking Age campaign within the campaign pack.
Unfortunately, you can only play as Mercia and it's Danes rather than Norwegians but that's fine by me.
Make double dukes, if you still have too many vassals, then give away small kingdoms. Don't give someone more than two duchies, their vassals while dislike them. Try to give kingdoms to a strong duke so that he can keep his vassals in check.
It actually is. Age of Charlemagne with a couple unit mods is the best Total War campaign in a long time. The Grand Campaign is great... just be ready for OP Huns. The game has Attila's namesake for a reason.
The battles are great if you download a camera mod that allows total control over zoom and angle... following dump related
The dates vary between my games, but things pick up big time when either a huge tribal empire forms (like mine) or a religious empire forms and starts bringing the fury of God(s) upon their neighbors.
This campaign kicked off in the 11th century for me because along with my empire in the East, the Seljuks held a powerful empire because some of the most populated and developed regions were in the Middle East.
You cant see it in my screencap, but the Byzantine Empire somehow inherited the Kingdom of France so they went ham on their Catholic neighbors. I was a fellow Orthobro so we smashed all heathens.
They eventually stopped the human wave tactic and turned to sending arrows into my phalanx
