What are some of your favorites?
>Age of Empires/Mythologies
BASED IN HISTORY
The African Kingdoms were historically accurate and Joan of Arc wuz a night and shiieet.
>implying age of empires and mythologies doesnt include historical figures, empires, units, buildings and other things
Are you retarded? Its all influenced by history of each respective nation, and beliefs in regards to mythologies
Dont need to be, theyre history themed
Excited for Bannerlord to finally come out. Can't say I like the fact that there will be voice acting ingame. Kingdom Come Deliverance has the worst dialogue system I've ever seen in a game and it's a shame they decided to go with a voiced PC.
I hope another napoleonic mod/dlc will be made for bannerlord
Same. I'd like an ACW DLC but it won't happen and judging from the community in N&S: First Manassas, it's probably better that way.
I've been enjoying the Kingdom Come alpha...when it doesn't crash.
I would literqlly pay all the money necessary if MnB NW was like using 1 unit Napoleon TW.
I swear the pixel large soldiers in Total War have more animations and depth placed into the than MnB allows. Not to mention grenadiers actually have grenades!
Well grenadiers having grenades is actually historically inaccurate and is removed in a lot of mods for Napoleon but I get what you mean. The thing is M&B will never have the scale of Total War because of the differences between games. Battles in TW are calculated by dice rolls between entire units based on a bunch of factors like stats, fatigue, slopes. Animations are something that could be improved on but Bannerlord will have mocap so that's a start.
I took them from a lecture/presentation on misconceptions about medieval arms and armor. Unfortunately I can't find any higher quality footage.
Sure why not. The other history games aren't all accurate either.
Bashford Dean was a crazy motherfucker.
>turn of the century
>curator of the arms and armor department at the NY Met
>old families selling off medieval and renaissance stuff
>private collectors didn't want it, since collectors at the time were buying up oriental stuff
>european stuff was seen as not historically valuable
>Dean bucks the trend and buys some very important harnesses and weapons
>then he dresses himself in armors and does cartwheels and runs around in them to show their agility
>and he falls off a running horse with a harness on
>and he buys a medieval crossbow and fires the bolts into a harness
>the authentic medieval bolts
This is the shit I know about him. He was also contracted to develop hard metal armor for the US army in WWI, and almost had it out to them. But the war was coming to a close in 1918 and the army never bought it.
Dean of course used historic designs
>literal American Knights could have helped fight off the Hun
If you're ever close to the Met, you fucking go.
Pretty much, though theyre closer to modern history, id say anything before lage 1970s i perfectly good. Anything after and its just too modern
I care not for the quality, looks sexy as fuck, got more?
I wonder what the view from inside there mustvfeel like, looks like id get claustrophobia
Holy shit muh dick
in that line I'd like to point out Insurgency. While not at all a totally accurate portrayal of modern combat, I would like to say they do a damn good job of making me feel like I'm back in Iraq or Afghanistan. The maps are beautiful, in that sense.
That said, never want to return to either of those countries.
The confederate flag controversy was going on at the time so the public servers were populated.
I hae no idea why itnsays Rome TW, supposed to be from Empire TW
Army? Nice. I got a couple of family in the US Marines and navy thankfully few have seen any action
