Driving around the parking lot for Panessa Studios, trying to figure out how to get the Batmobile onto the roof to activate a scanner path for a Riddler Trophy, when the Batmobile just suddenly exploded. No idea how, but it came with a game-over scene of Alfred saying my sacrifice will be remembered, which I've never seen before.

I don't know how he's paying for them, since I see his income every time he whines for peace - he's only got about 100 gold and +2 gold per turn.

On difficulties higher than prince, the civilization AI begins to cheat. That's one of the reasons why people aren't that big of a fan of this game. The AI is too dumb to put up a proper challenge.

The AI always cheats as far as I know. It just cheats harder on higher difficulty. Cheating AI is easier than actual AI that thinks (or even appears to).


Thread-related: I set down my x-piratez crew in a prepper (doomsday preppers about 300 years after doomsday) mission. They love grenades, and 4 of my 6 gals got hit after the first round out of the aircar. Luckily, 2 were already down from a machine gunner.

Smacked a bomb squig with my chainsword.

It's been a long time since I played this game, but I'd forgotten both how fun it was to stomp ork heads for health and how the game actually does a pretty good job of making you feel like a big dang hero to the guardsmen who are scattered around.

That death was also the first place I died the last time I played the game, if I recall, which was in the ordnance room of the armorium where Leandros tries to push the shell back onto the loader while you're being mobbed by orkz.  I actually died here 3 times in my current play through, twice to bomb squigs and once to just getting mobbed because I kept spamming the stun button instead of the execute button and couldn't figure out why I wasn't regaining health.  The controls are a little fiddly on PC.

Space Marine was awesome. It's a shame that we probably won't ever see a sequel.



Since my Fallout 4 survival game is glitched and permanently softlocked as far as I can tell, I redoubled my efforts in Daggerfall. Princess Morgiah sends me to Scourg Barrow to deliver a letter. I have all kinds of spells and enchants, should be a piece of cake.

The second room I enter has two Flesh Atronachs. I die without hitting them once.

My nightmares jumped from barely 5 straight to 8.  Now I'm stuck in a hotel that's 100% not a mental asylum.

Stomped by the ork warboss.

I was doing well in my first attempt and got to the second to last phase, but while trying to stomp gretchin for health, the boss ran me over and killed me.  What followed was 6 more attempts where he rapidly stomped my butt.  I'm not even sure what I did differently that let me win the next time.

Space Marine, again.

For my first game after a few years of not playing, I created a world with high savagery and a high number of beasts. I remember my previous few forts just becoming boring, as my biggest challenge was making bedrooms for all the migrants.

As if to punish my hubris, a wereantelope arrived before I had any weapons or traps to speak of. Of course, he neglected to kill any of the peasants or children that arrived in the last migrant wave, but instead murdered my hunters, miners and farmers before running away.

Always bring a weapon.

picks are decent weapons.

Actually I always bring like 2-3 picks and a copper helm.


Guess what the helm is for?
