Surely people who don't like it can not use it? Then everyone's happy.

Of course the issue of "I completed that level without pausing"/"Prove it" can arise, but this is no different to "I completed that level without looking up the solution"/"Prove it" malarky.

True, but they didn't change it for Pharaoh, which because of walkers, was such a brilliant and strategic game. (Above all, it kept processing times a minimum)

Unfortunately, "realism" is the in-thing these days. Gameplay takes a backseat all the time.

We'll see.

The lack of walkers alone makes it utterly, completely and totally different, and they've said on the website that there will be no walkers.

I only played Caesar III, and the shots from IV don't really look all that different to me, short of being in actual 3D. So why is that not a good sequel to Caesar? So far, it appears to be based on the Children of the Nile engine, which is utterly different. There are no walkers. Paths actually ha...

Caesar IV

Bah! Tilted Mill have recently announced Caesar IV , but it is in no way a successor to the Caesar series :evil: They're using the same engine from Children of the Nile!! Granted, it's an OK game, and this one will probably be OK too, but it's just not Caesar! At all! It should have been called some...

Glod I hope they don't get bought. This is one reason why capitilism is bad. But without capitalism they wouldn't exist in the first place and computer games would be stuck a decade in the past. Capitalism is brilliant for gamers in the non-ideological sense (which I'm sure is what you are referrin...

It is a good site, but all the games I have even a vague interest in are protected by ESA.

Bloody ESA.

Good job I can download them elsewhere (usually).

Your future self runs off with it towards the local lake without saying a word, but accidentally leaves behind an identical-looking - and similarly functional - machine. And so, you thoroughly enjoy hopping through time and space... until you...

Well, it's a silly vending machine, so these things happen.

Anyway, I forgot to insert a coin - a mistake that I will remedy by inserting a coin.
