Red Alert2 and Yuri's revenge fans, look what i just found
This guy plays these fun extra small maps on youtube.
@bompies don’t quote me on this, because I haven’t been in a geography class since last spring. But although most of Russia is located in Asia, most of the land is not very populated. If you look at a population map of Russia , you will see the more dense areas in the “European part” of the country. But again lol, don’t quote me on that
If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
I think a quote from i book i read is a perfect answer:
"It's not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste much of it. Life is long enough, and it's been given to us in generous measure for accomplishing the greatest things, if the whole of it is well invested. But when life is squandered through soft and careless living, and when it's spent on no worthwhile pursuit, death finally presses and we realize that the life which we didn't notice passing
has passed away. (4) So it is: the life we are given isn't short but we make it so; we're not ill provided but we are wasteful of life. Just as
impressive and princely wealth is squandered in an instant when it passes into the hands of a poor manager, but wealth however modest
grows through careful deployment if it is entrusted to a responsible guardian, just so our lifetime offers ample scope to the person who maps it out well."
If you want to know more about this ancient book written by my favourite philosopher feel free to ask :).
Choose a game you love (or tolerate) in each category!
Mount & Blade: Warband is A Medieval RPG sandbox with some strategical elements and party management. It features large scale battles with troops you command, but you also fight with them. This resulting in possibly basic slaying of a couple petty bandits here and there or tracking their hideouts for lords, vassals and kings around the map (Calradia). To all out sieges on cities after betraying your king to start your own faction/kingdom. There are many possibilities!
At first, the graphics look very crap for A 2011 game but hear me out. You will invest hundreds, if not thousand of hours playing this! (But you don't need A God tier computer to run it, so that's A bonus.)
Depending on how you play, if you just want to be A bounty hunter ? Go for it. If you want to one day rule all of Calradia? You can do so however you please.
I could go on but there is just... SO much! There are a lot of things to learn when you play, but by the time you know what you're doing. It's just plain simple fun! If you finish the main game? (Which takes forever to do, and you will probably replay it at least 3 times as well.) Don't worry... There are Also mods... Lots! OF! MODS! :D (All the way From historical era's like French civil wars and Vikings, to Game of Thrones and Star Wars. You will never get bored.)
You will know the game once you play it because it's difficult to explain all the mechanics since there is so much going on!
Hope this gives you some idea.
