If that doesn't mean anything to you, then you probably never played the original Majesty or its sequel. Which is a shame, because it's the only hands-off high fantasy parody RTS out there. In a nutshell, you build a fantasy kingdom base and set bounties for your heroes to attack or defend stuff. It also has a lot of humor, ridiculous voice acting and some of the greatest quotable unit feedback since Age of Empire's "Wololo".
Even though I'm still getting my ass kicked in the latest and second expansion Battles of Ardania, which was released last week, the new expansion Monster Kingdom has already been announced! Rather than playing more of the same game, this time you'll actually be playing from the monsters' point of view. Looking at the screenshots, it seems Werewolves, Liches and Goblin Spearmen are among the new types of heroes you'll manage. And apparently you can now manage tax collectors to bring and fetch gold at set amounts? I think my mind just exploded...
Majesty 2: Monster Kingdom will let you manage monsters to kill stinky heroes from December 7th for $14.99, €14.99 and £9.99 through digital distribution.
In case you get bored during the December drought, you might as well pick up Majesty 2 to give it a try if it pops up in a Steam sale. Unless you want your PC elitist title revoked, hmm? Hmmmm?
