DLC is 5 euro each [punch]

I guess this should be in the Civ VI subforum?

Civ6 is on holiday discount on Steam... Minus a meagre 10%, so the price is still €53,99. [sad] A bit strange for a die-hard Civ fan like me to still not have bought or even played Civ6 yet. (But then again, I'm overloaded with deadlines at the moment anyway.)

I'll probably wait until it hits 50% discount and will buy the DLC's in a similar manner. Just like I did with Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV (75% discount even) and that still costed me €40 altogether.

You could buy it at something like Gamer's Outlet for 33 euros.

I bought the scenarios: Easy wins on Deity, no storyline at all... :(

It's horrific to see the AI struggle with basic tactics. I think I've lost a city to an AI once or twice in maybe 50 games. And those were far off island cities taken by ships. I do not know where to begin with the huge list of discomforts. CFC forum is full of them. Diplo is still utter crap, and so is reputation. Religion is dramatic.

... and if I guess correctly, it didn't get better in the last two months...

I haven't actually been tempted to try it ;)

I'm so happy I finally got Dishonored 2. It is gorgeous, a masterpiece, and runs OKish on my PC with 760GTX. Considering that I paid only 30 bucks for this work of art, in no way I'm buying Civ 6 bs for more than 5 bucks. People post all kinds of horrors about it still after 3 patches. Now, no time for idle chat, I've got to deal with this Delilah bitch.

I got Dishonored GOTY for 5 bucks, and that's a good price. I loved the main game, but I disliked the DLC. I'm not tempted to try, but since I'm in the process of designing a pile of components I think Dishonored 2 might just be the game to see how good a game can look.

Playing Football Manager doesn't really make a good point for building a PC with i7. Or R7.

I've played Civ 6 a couple of days last year and it's biggest horror imo is it being so boring. And it has no OCC which I enjoy a lot in Civ 5 for some reason.

Dishonored 2 seems to be a lot of fun to play, but I also read it's PC port is a bit erratic. How is this nowadays?

Since I haven't read any complaints about it the last few months I suppose the game has been fixed...

I bought it, but after half an hour I discovered I don't have the patience for a stealth game. Dishonored 1 was probably similar in that aspect, but I recall having a lot of fun with shadow step and backstabbing. So I guess I need to persevere until I unlock that perk. Unfortunately my time is consumed by Stellaris atm.

The graphics quality of Dishonored 2 was a major disappointment. It looks like a console port. Again, Dishonored 1 was probably similar in that aspect, but at the time xbone graphics were acceptable. Or maybe the cartoon graphics doesn't work well with the improved lighting. I don't know.

For me, it is the opposite. I was running out of patience in my first Dishonored playthrough. But then, after few months, I got back to it and actually was having a lot of fun. Played the whole thing 4 or even 5 times, mostly very high chaos, it sure is gory and enjoyable, can be creative with multitude of murder tools given to Corvo. The game is actually quite difficult at first, there is some learning curve.

With Dishonored 2, I had zero graphical issues but used medium settings since it gives me 30-40 fps on my 760 GT. Beginning of the game is super easy on any difficulty and does not require patience provided that you understand the game mechanics. You can take the rail and get to the ship in about 2 minutes. But the art, the atmosphere, music, voice overs, it all is very good. I have 100% absolute immersion and just could not pull myself out of it. Clockwork mansion is simply brilliant, Stilton's villa is a masterpiece. Other areas mostly good and very immersive. IMHO, it is less cartoonish that D1 for me. Mechanics are a bit different, so some relearning is required for very hard.

Also, the game is not long even running low chaos no kills, I've made two missions per one session, maybe 3 hours, maybe 4. And you can just waltz through the whole thing in a single 3-4-hour session for high chaos in NG+.

Definitely well worth $30 I paid.
