Sometimes it’s nice to put your favourite MMO to the side and play a single player game. I have many to choose from (understatement), including a new purchase, Warlock: Master of the Arcane. I love Paradox games, or at least the thought of Paradox games. I have Crusader Kings II and have played around with it a bit, but I have yet to complete a game. I have pre-purchased Elemental: Fallen Enchantress and again played around with the beta a bit but have yet to complete a game. I also have (non Paradox) Tropico 4 to play, I loved Tropico 3 so I’m excited about 4.
This is my problem, I always want to play more than one game, start one, switch to another and never get anywhere in any of them.
So for now I’m going to play Warlock and see how I go. If I manage to complete a couple of games I’ll be happy. Warlock is a 4x game, similar to Civ 5, but simplified in some ways and more focused on battles. It’s also supposed to be nice and challenging.
Das24680 (an aussie ), has a great Let’s Play of the game on YouTube, and his enthusiasm for it is contagious.
As an aside (and back to MMO territory) I held back from purchasing The Secret World, but managed to get a Beta key for the weekend. I’m really looking forward to playing it for a few hours. Unlike Guild Wars 2 that I already own and therefore don’t want to play too much before launch, I’ll be playing quite a bit of TSW on the weekend with a view to deciding whether or not I should purchase it.
