(Now to put a JE between this one and the next so I don't look like such a whiny bitch)

I have been diligently working on a major presentation I had to present yesterday afternoon. I have spent over 2 weeks on it, and it was in front of a major client. I was completely prepared and the entire audience changed 30 minutes before I had to present, which meant some serious ad-libbing. I work best under pressure and talking to people, so it went flawlessly.(Now to put a JE between this one and the next so I don't look like such a whiny bitch)

I work best under pressure and talking to people, so it went flawlessly.

This was (I think) big hurdle #1 for me to score the job I want. I think I passed it with flying colors, so we'll have to see what happens now...

Joey is with my parents until Sunday, which was exactly what I needed to get the presentation finished and everything. Been nice not having to worry about what he was doing, but its time for him to come home.

Seems like the D2 experiment failed. I never had the chance to pick it up, and now I probably won't. In the meantime, I've gotten myself hooked on "Medieval:Total War." I used to play "Shogun:Total War" but it bored me after a while. MTW is much much much more complex (I like to refer to it as 'exquisitely complex' because it is complex enough to keep things interesting for a long long time). I have had to restart several times now that I'm getting the hang of how to play it (banishing the pope, taking the papal states, and putting up a puppet pope early in the game is a bad bad idea... when he comes back, he's got an army that can simply walk over you). I've started with Italy, but may try my hand at an arabic country next (naptha throwers!!).

Anywho, if anyone wants to do a MTW online game, or just talk strategy, I'm pretty heavily into it now :)

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Bro loves the game. He also has Rome: Total War now as well.

I remember one time I went to see what he was doing and he was ecstatic. He was losing spectacularly. He said that was the first time he ever lost the game and was excited to see what would happen. I am unfortunately not as gifted in strategy as he is.

I myself prefer Castles: Seige and Conquest. (I suppose this link is as good as any: http://www.atpm.com/3.06/page12.shtml [atpm.com] )

You know what game I like to play? (1)

Don't listen to the marketdroids; that game is totally vaporware.

Yeah, I still have my preorder reservation, but the release date keeps changing.

Relax... its still being worked on. I even have a project, just need to put it into CVS so others can help out, soon.

Don't worry dude, wasn't uptight about it.

I am, however, still considering the death of millions.

no... not a total failure (1)

blinder (153117) | more than 9 years ago | (#13016128)

i wouldn't say it was a total failure... it was a learning experience. we learned that 8 is too many. smaller groups (of no more than 3... possibly 4) work best.

and you should still get the game... i think you'd like it... even if you just play single player. its really addictive.

oh yeah... presentations... yay for a flawless presentation! w00t!!!

Well, let's get something rolling. Angie and Joe will be out of town soon, and I need something other than visions of DE students to fill my evenings.

M:TW (1)

dubiousdave (618128) | more than 9 years ago | (#13016143)

I played the demo of that long ago. It was really cool. IIRC, I stomped through all but the last battle of the demo, then had my ass handed to me in it. Once I accidentally won it somehow, but I have no idea how. I loved watching the projectiles from catapults/ballistae bouncing along the ground after they hit, mowing down columns of infantry.

do you have the Viking expansion? (1)

artifex2004 (766107) | more than 9 years ago | (#13016935)

I can't decide whether to buy MTW or RTW first. Do you know if the Viking pack for MTW is any good?

Re:do you have the Viking expansion? (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 9 years ago | (#13017400)

I would start with MTW. I haven't played RTW yet, but I can figure that its got even more complexities than MTW. Best to learn this game and have less learning curve on the next...
