Rise of Legends
« on: May 18, 2005, 01:42:03 am »
I was just finished reading up about this game, I don't know if anyone has played Rise of Nations before, but instead of having a Rise of Nations 2 they came out with this. http://www.riseoflegends.com/

Basically, they are taking the old gameplay (or so I hear) and putting it in a fantasy world. It looks really good, graphic-wise and I really hope that BigHuge pulls through like they did with RoN. Because, quite frankly, it was one of the best - if not the best - RTSs ever made.
The irony could kill me...

I never played RoN, RoL looks great....they both look great actually maybe i'll get round to it someday.

But Dawn of War will always ALWAYS be the best RTS ever for the simple reason that it has Space Marine Dreadnoughts that shout "BURN HERETIC" at any available opportunity, opportunities which usually involve punching their fist through someone and rotating it at high speeds.

I just realized I missed out a great game.

I own Rise of Nations, it was ok at best in my opinion. If the gameplay in the new one is anything like RoN I doubt I'll bother with it. I wish someone would make games like the good old TD/RA/TA.

I've been meaning to give that a try. Short on money though. (And/or bandwidth.) :\

I love Dawn of war and i think that GW is a  bunch of money grubbing assholes.

I can not wait for Winter Assault.. I've seen clips about it, to give each of the imperial gaurdsman individuality, their appearance is randomly generated.  I've seen a clip with a short gaurdsman in the middle of a group of tall ones...

Love the orks though I can't play them well, too...  They're easily the most characterful race in ANY  RTS I've ever played..

Orks as a general rule suck. after a week of play I dont think I ever got stomped by an ork player. Hopefully they'll address this in Winter Assault. Which looks great, I'm so glad they picked Imperial Guard as the new player race - cant think of any other 40k races i'd really like to play as
