Strategy game suggestions.

Post by Phoenixwarrior141 » Tue Jun 17, 2014 9:38 pm

I've run out of GOOD, worth a damn strategy games (Mount and Blade Warband is NOT what I want as awesome as it is) and I need some suggestions for more:

- Anything like the new Total War games without actually being a new Total War game, Shogun isn't my type (Don't like the time period, I'd prefer Rome II if it wasn't crap)

- Direct Control portions or mechanics are okay so long as they aren't shit.

- It actually has to involve strategy to some degree, "Send in all the units to win" is not strategy despite the fact that it is my only strategy.

- Single Player preferably.

- MOBAs are a NO.

- It does not have to be particularly serious.

- The A.I. should be an actual challenge.

- Steam or GoG.

Any Recommendations?

I just picked up Transistor, the fighting is pretty strategic and versatile.

Tried it, laughed at the tutorial's humor, crashed mid skirmish.

I didn't really like it, not a huge fan of Turn Based games anyway.

To slow I guess.

The only thing that interested me were Rome II and Empire...

I've heard too many bad things...




















I now fear for Aliens Isolation...
