That's quite the old game to review. I remember playing to it even before Stellaris launch.

Now you listen here, Sins only came out a couple of years ago in 2012, that was what, ...5 years ago? See, not so bad!

(Side note Sins is fantastic and I hope once the new one is out of early access that it will be a similarly fantastic game)

Your internal NTP server may need an update. It is off by... Some time ๐Ÿ˜†

N...no! It's just the early 2010s, clearly. Surely. Okay, maybe the late 2010s... but no later!

Oh no...

Maybe they were in the mall? ๐Ÿ˜† (that thread was immediately previous in my feed)

[-] Dremor 1 points 2 months ago

Can you link said thread ?

It's even older than that, Sins originally came out in 2008.

Mandalore reviews mostly older games.

Give his Mystery of the Druids or Limbo of the Lost videos if you want to experience some of the most absurd games ever made.

Thanks for that additional insight into this channel. This completely changes the way that I will now look at this content.

He's a real "PC Gamer's Reviewer". Sometimes the best games already came out and I haven't played them yet!

I genuinely can't tell if you're being a dick or sincere here

[-] [email protected] 4 points 2 months ago

Haha, that's fair. I was being sincere.

I'd initially scrolled past thinking "I played this whilst I was still at Uni, why is anyone talking about it now?"

Now that I know this person's focus is intentionally looking at older games I'm willing to go and give it a watch.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

Ah, awesome!

Yeah, Mandalore does some newer stuff (I think he reviewed the newest Total War Warhammer game as it came out), but it's mostly older.

I'd also recommend the Ring and Anonymous Agony videos if you want more utter absurdity. Fair warning with Anonymous Agony, it's as edgy as edgy can possibly be. And the Ring is complete nonsense but still a great time.

Sin's is a game my friends and I always come back to. Such a dynamic rts with so many ways to win.

The expansions are fairly priced and also one person having an expansion is enough to host an expansion game for everyone who has any version installed.

I know nothing about this game but every time I see it mentioned I always think that it has an awesome name

Best 4x game of the 2000s and still one of my favorites to go back, play exclusively for a month or so, and then put down for years at a time.

There are some amazing overhaul mods, too. The Star Trek and Halo ones are particularly good.

[-] c0mbatbag3l 2 points 2 months ago

Also the Mass Effect overhaul was cool, playing as the Reapers lol

Great game. Awesome game. Runs like shit in late game even on modern hardware unless you keep things smaller and boring + the modding situation sucks a lot. Fun enough to still be worth playing. Hopefully someday they'll make a sequel to address some of these issues or someone else will make a similar game with better performance. Sins 2 is a thing but it's only on epic and I don't use Windows. We might get a steam release some day but until then I'm too lazy to pirate it.
