Yeah... Really really really annoying when it is only counting about half of my wins but every single one of my losses... Sorry just wanted to vent. Its just done that to me a LOT tonight. more than half of my wins actually. And of course it counted my one loss. Really @#$%'s up your win loss ratio on the website stats.

I liked temple of elemental evil a lot but I had some problems with it so couldn't finish

I like dawn of war 2 a lot too, tha campaign is awesome and the MP is great too, you just need to get a list of decent players to play with or not care about your ranking

I enjoyed Temple of Elemental Evil. It's a real shame that Atari weren't properly behind it, though.

pardon my fanboism:

but if you want a fun, cheap, engaging, simple MP game: you must get Altitude.

I got a few days ago, and I'm well hooked. It is on the order of TF2 type fun and 'jump in and play a while' sort of MP game. Well worth ten bucks.

I just found Solium Infernum.

Its all about hell and seems to be really cool. Avatar Creation reminds me on Dominion Pretender Creation. It has a pbem mode and the whole concept is interesting.

Anyone know/play it? I'm still a newb but will learn soon.

I tried the demo for Solium Infernum. The game has a really cool atmosphere; kind of a mix between the Lesser Key of Solomon, Paradise Lost, and a few Lovecraftian elements. The gameplay itself requires a lot of strategy, but it doesn't feel that deep. The character creator is kind of neat but not all the choices are very balanced. I'd say it's pretty average overall. Definitely a good way to kill a weekend but not a replacement for Dom3.

I looked at Solium Infernum but the initial feedback I read on Quarter to Three was the AI sucked and I was hoping to find a decent single player game for the time being. I actually have been playing Divine Divinity, an old Diablo-clone that is pretty fun and charming - no heavy thinking which is what I need these days. You can find it on gog.com.

You also recruit everything (armies and commanders) by bidding like you would buy mercs in Dominions. A MP game with human players could be really awesome, but I imagine most of the "strategy" would be resolved during the bidding process. Once all the really powerful units are purchased the unlucky players won't have much to look forward to.

There is virtually no random element to combat, so usually you know if you're going to win or lose a fight before you engage. The computer does not seem to purchase many praetors (commanders for your armies) or use combat cards so their legions are often inferior to yours and the battles are pretty one-sided. It's pretty easy to crush the AI on every conceivable metric even in the short demo.

In many ways Solium Infernum seems like it would be better as a physical boardgame. I can see buying the game and convincing 3 friends to sit down and spend 3 hours playing it. I can't see convincing 3 friends to buy the game and then spend 3 weeks playing by email.

And as previously mentioned, the AI blows.
