The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

It would depend on the economy type but I usually max taxes and tariffs and then If I'm still running low decrease my military and naval supply rate. If I can max all the sliders I'll cut down n tariffs and then on taxes.

I do love nothing more than a game of Victoria 2. However, last time I attempted to host\join a multiplayer game with a friend the port forwarding for the MetaSever and IP Connect was being a pain in the backside.

Other people's experiences could vary, but I found that after a while the economy of the USA practically operates itself when based around the principles of Laissez Faire. Nothing quite like becoming the preeminent power in the entire world and being able to sustain a gazillion Dreadnoughts (bit of an exaggeration).

Gonna post this here since I don't think many read the map game thread....
How about instead of a map game, we do a story game? I was thinking of one similar to this sexy one, but instead of starting in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, we start as leaders of pre-gunpowder states as it begins to happen. We'd have to deal with the border regions being overrun by people fleeing the zombies, and then the zombies themselves.

We'd need participants as well as a story master, who would control the zombies and give us the effects players actions have.

You chose them in that map game, didn't you? I have been out of the loop, this DLC looks pretty good - also looking forward to playing as a minor Celtiberian tribe. The game as the Iceni was dire.

I actually still have factions I have yet to play as. The Iceni emblem kept me away from them initially, because if I'm going to plant my flag across the map I sure as hell want a pretty flag! Then other things kept distracting me. Like Carthage!

I've been using NOIF's Faction Emblems to replace several of the vanilla emblems. I like the first alternate banner he made for the Iceni because I get to roleplay through their campaign as though I'm playing House Baratheon instead

A shame that neither the Averaci, Carthage or the Lusitani get the Iberian Lanceari seen in Europa Barbarorum however. Got to love one's self some heavily armoured cataphract cavalry, and the Iberian factions are lacking in some good shock cavalry since all they get is different kinds of "melee cavalry" (as Rome II classifies them).

Also, what the fudge is up with the Lusitani not having a cavalry bodyguard option for their generals? Almost makes my blood boil as much as the historical battle scenario that covers Cannae.

I wouldn't say that. I think vanilla Rome 2 is better than vanilla Rome 1, though the game's design makes Rome 1 better in the sense of modability and ease of modding. Rome 2 though is better in the sense of getting mods. All you have to do is click the 'subscribe' button and it's yours, instead of going through 3rd party downloading sites to get something.

Given I came in to the Total War series with Rome: Total War, I never did get to experience Medieval: Total War while it was the latest popular entry to the then rather new franchise. However, having gone back to play Shogun 1 before the release of Shogun 2 and Medieval 1 before release of Rome 2 I can see where you (Jax) are coming from.

For example, god forbid there be a good reason to deploy your troops in large blocks rather than a two or three deep phalangite line (looking at you Rome 2). The way Med 1 achieved things might be a bit inelegant in comparison to some of the suggestions bandied about these days in the wake of Rome 2, but giving out stat bonuses to units for being deployed in a plausible rank-and-file sure works.

Have they fixed the fact that formations didn't work in Rome 2 yet? It was really annoying when it turned out units were incapable of holding formation once they got into combat. That was probably one of my great let downs of the game (well the battles in general if I'm honest).
I'm still wholeheartedly of the opinion that MTW is better than any subsequent TW game
Unless you count playing MTW at a friends house, I started with RTW but have played MTW so I feel I can't judge completely fairly. I found the game somehow felt better atmosphericly (I couldn't think of a better word but M2 felt too 'shiney' for example) and M2 seemingly forgot a couple of nice featues, such as the unit commanders and titles. In some ways the risk style map was also pretty nice, though I would probably not say I prefer it.
I haven't played Empire
I still find it impressive they set out to make the building process more streamlined and somehow did the complete opposite. They did it again in R2 as well...

I think the issue with Empire is that CA tried to make the series expand too quickly. They didn't have the internal strength to make the game as best they could. Rome II is decent when held alone, but when compared to Rome it loses it's shine.

To me, Shogun II was sort of the high point of the series since Rome. They added in enough content to keep the game interesting from Medieval II, but they didn't over expand like they did in Empire and Napoleon(which isn't all that bad either).

I agree Shogun 2 was a step in the right direction. I'd put the problems they seem to have with design and stuff is that until they design a new engine they are stuck with Empire's engine. Out of its time frame the engine struggles to portay combat very well, and they dug themselves a hole with the animated combat in my opinion, which while it looks very nice it must be a massive time and money sink for something that is arguably worse gameplaywise. They also seem to have issues with simply not thinking somewhere along the line (lack of guard mode anyone?) I'm definately going to wait and see whatever their next game is like rather than buy on launch which I would hazard a guess would be M3.
