Empire Total War again, a warning

   0
So maybe you read my latest blog post about Empire Total War. Everything that says about the game in there is true, is a great game....

But now that I have some more hours into the game I have to talk about the latest stability issues that the game has. Is buggy as hell, a couple of patches in a week and still no luck for most of the users. Of course they are a set of minnor AI issues, but the complicated big problems the game have makes it quite unnplayable. For example there is a set of crashes regarding native american nations, the game crashes to desktop and end of story. You find yourself going back to oldder savegames and doing things different to avoid the AI crashes to desktop during the end turns, this is by far the most widespread issue. The first patch seems to have created a bunch of new problems and the second patch is only for a german and polish language issues they were.

So the game is fun, I wouldnt be here, wasting my time saying this if the game was bad, I would cut my loses and move on. I want this game to be fixed so I can play it more, it has a lot of depth and I believe it deserves to be played... but I have to give a warning to everyone who is going to pay for this game: WAIT until they have a decent patch and resolve the issues around this buggy release.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
