I always get confused with this Akela pirate game.  Steam has several versions, hard to tell which one is the most current.  Iíve played the city of abandoned ships, it was cool but no way do I want to fiddle with mods these days.

Maybe red dead redemption goes pirates might be a game that rock star should make.

Like Des, I play a naval action which is all sailing and ship combat but from the pvp side of the game.  Itís a sailing sim mmo, think eve online but in sailing ships instead of space ships.  As epic as naval action is, I canít recommend the pvp side as itís very intense and punishing for new players....you have to have the stomach for it, but also very rewarding when you win because of the challenge.

Where do people get the vanilla game from?  Doesn't seem to be available on Steam or anywhere else, I could only find a rather sketchy looking download on ThePirateBay - funny enough :arr:

Judging by the listed release dates, To Each His Own is the most recent instalment.  I picked it up and most of the DLC with some steam bux I got from a refund.

YES!  RDR2 already has pretty good physics for shooting holes in boats and sinking faster based on the number of holes.
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

In my defense, I've been a bit under the weather lately.  :-[
