UFO Trilogy were pretty good games at the time

A bit late now, but any chance the title could be changed to turn based? Turned is a completely different word



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

100% agree. They were really fun too. I especially the liked the 3rd one set on Mars.

Yea sorry about that... for some reason I use turn and turned as the same word in TBS.  I'll make it official by offering the correct phrase in the title.



Anyone get their start for loving TBS with board games such as Chess, Stratego, Risk, Axis and Allies, etc? I believe Axis and Allies was at my peak of board game love (besides being Chess fan for most my life). You know the game is complicated when you have to keep the rule book near your side for any moments notice.

Actually, it went the other way around for me. Stratego, Chess and Risk came after battle Isle, History Line 1914-1918 and some other turn-based games of the 80's.



I have fallen for Wasteland 2 (and also Divinity: Original Sin) I've never been a big fan of turn-based games or combat but I loved the wasteland setting, which is reminiscent of Fallout New Vegas. On my RPGs, I really do prefer action combat but when Turn-based is done right, it is some of the most rewarding gameplay I can recall. Being able to properly execute all my commands and tactics makes me feel real smart-like.

Actually, Fallout was a spiritual successor to the original Wasteland. So no small wonder the two IP look or feel so similar



I am ashamed to admit I have never played any FE titles. The switch should change that.
