Played Wildermyth a bit, but it didn't grab me. It's an area I'm super interested in, but somehow it didn't work for me.

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

I tried a bit of the tutorial, It might grow on me but my initial impression is that the combat system isn't great.

I've heard despite the subject matter it's actually a more realistic city builder than skylines :hmm:

I refunded it but planning to re-acquire at some point.

It is promising (and having vehicles of my childhood on screen is kinda' cool) but it is very micromanagement-heavy.

Tried the demo and ouch, it is indeed. There's just too much *stuff*

It seems to be another one like A Train where I'd love to play but just don't have the time and patience to study the manual

Procedural storytelling? Yeah, I might be getting it just to play around with that. It's something that interests me quite a bit, too.

I played through a few chapters in a few starts now.  The stories are different every time (except for the intro which you can skip after playing the first time).  Some story lines are much more compelling than others.  My main complaint is that characters age and retire too quickly so that once you get some attachment to them you have to move on.  There is a mechanic to spend points to elevate some so that they can be used again but it is not as satisfying as just keeping with the characters you have developed for a reasonable period of game play.

I grew to enjoy the combat system a bit more, but it is a lot of punching the same buttons over and over.

Banner Saga is much better once you set it to easy mode.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017
