    Default Archonic's Archaic Acronymical Antidisestablishmentarianism Random banter 148

    Ok so you know why you are here, so start being random... within reason.

    The Rules would you kindly read these, and obey them...
    Spoiler
    Show

    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait 50 threads before making another one.

    15: good, now Would you kindly stab the hippie

    Speaking as a Big Sister and Eldest, they're all annoying. I'm not exactly much of a girl either, so Little Sister's the 'girliest' girl in the house (she has two cute posters and once wore a skirt of her own free will to a non-formal event).
    Little Sisters are shrill and annoying.
    Especially when they're the baby of the family.
    The only people younger than her on the maternal side of the family are great-grandchildren! The oldest of which is . . . eight.
    Baby Sisters get away with everything. And it's the Bigger Sister that gets all the blame.

    At least we don't get into physical altercations more than five or six times a year.

    You have any Little Siblings?
    If yes, then you know how annoying they always are.
    If no, Little Siblings are always annoying. Sometimes they can be endearingly so, or simply annoying as a catchy song can be annoying.

    College Husband is a Civ lover and I know he's been looking forward to Civ V. A lot.
    And he'll have got it maybe a day or two ago. Iust in time to go back to uni. I predict many a sleepless night.
    Not to mention that I got to play Civ IV for a few weeks back in March or so. I lost ten hours to that game in my first sitting.
    In my case it was a "Well, it must be dinner time now, I've probably been playing for a couple of hours." *looks at clock* "Four in the morning?! I have a lecture at nine and I haven't done any reading for tomorrow's class!"
    Fantastic game, but it steals time.

    What saddens me is that my perennial Civ favorite, Germany, is likely to NOT be my favorite in this game...

    Ahh, New thread.

    And, ahh, Civ V. I got it the same day it was released (last Friday), but I still haven't played it especially much (I blame little brother for hogging it, despite it being my game and mine alone. However, I'm not going to shove him away like he does to littlest brother, because I really don't want to sink to his level).

    And for you fellow Civ addicts out there, there is still hope.

    ION: I've picked up my game of Riven which has been on rest in at least half a year (can't really remember, it's probably more). I've made some progress, but some of these puzzles are hard as hell, and the running around is more time-consuming than Pokémon pre-Fly.

    I knew some people who never took it down. Roughly around June they said "So we ever taking the Christmas tree down?" "Nah... we're almost halfway through to the next year. Let's just leave it there."

    That's just laziness though. Putting up a Christmas tree at the beginning of September is plain weird, because I was sure it hadn't been there before...

    I don't find the AI particularly dull on the higher difficulties, and the automation will favor food over any other, but you are free to toggle to a different city focus, and the city will adjuster their workers to fit that. Also, manual allocation is still allowed.

    Also... Germany's ability, Furor Teutonicus, is only useful in the early stage of the game, and then it's debatable. I cleared well over a dozen barbarian encampments, defeating a barbarian unit that was stationed on a camp, and only got 2 units to join me despite the 50% rate... very disappointing.

    @V: I hope you were amused by the non giant-friendly posts?

    Well, I haven't gotten into any war yet in my game (Prince difficulty), and my little brother is only playing on Warlord difficulty, but there, it's happened multiple times that the AI ignores exposed Cannons next to their units in favour of fully functional Riflemen, and I've read that it's the same way in the higher difficulties. Yeah, I really should play a bit more before passing a judgement.

    And I know that I can toggle the focus, but I'm pretty averse to using them thanks to Civ IV being a bit too focused when one is picked (practically stopping growth for production, for example), and the standard focus is supposed to be balanced. There is should be a reason to there being a growth focus too, after all

    Well, the special ability might not be the best, but the Landsknecht is really fast to build, and the Panzer is a good late-game unit. Some of the other nations doesn't really have that amazing powers either.


    On Christmas comming early, I haven't seen any Christmas decorations yet, but I can bet all I own on the first comming up before the first snowfall here in my town. Now, it would actually be possible to bet on wether there has been any snowfall at all before Christmas itself... and I won't be so stupid as to bet everything I own either. :P

    Now, admittedly, the Landsknecht won me two seperate wars (one involving the allied antagonists) and I haven't played with the pikemen of another Civ just yet so I have no comparison.

    As for the Panzer... my first game is on the Marathon speed, so I just researched them last night before going to bed... And I've already conquered my entire continent...

    'tis the season.

    Specifically, the season for eating mince pies. In large amounts. And then regretting it during dinner.
