Making Rome great again in Rome 2 TW with the DEI Mod. Rome's Latrines weren't built in a day. Have a great first weekend of October Grogs.  O0

Why build a cockpit when you have a VR headset?

Read through the DCS thread. The in-depth discussion is in there. TLDR; one has nothing to do with the other. I use peripheral devices in VR, so I still need a chair and controllers.

Can New World be played solo without being bothered by 1000s of online idiots?

You can definitely play solo in this MMO.  In fact the only way to have anyone attack you is to enable a setting in your character profile that makes you vulnerable to PVP combat.  If you leave that setting off, no one can harm you. 

Yes some of the areas are very tough nuts to crack solo, but if you grind your levels high enough you can solo any dungeon.  In fact there is usually a lot of other players in those dungeons who are killing off the bad guys anyway so all you have to do is run fast and pickup treasure chests before the ai bots respawn. 

New World is an increadible experience, even as a solo player like myself.

^I've got around 10 or so hours into it and I'm at level 18.  I've got quite a lot of food and raw materials stashed away as well as a decent collection of clothing and armor. 

Story wise I'm maybe 5% into the game but there is so much to do, including all kinds of side quests, that I'm in no big rush.  I predict this will be the kind of game that will still be played off and on even after the honeymoon phase is over.

Crusader Kings advice or Shakespeare?  You decide!  :2funny:

Get an heir and a spare; celibate from there
Two is one, one is none
When the hurly burly's done
When the battle's lost and won

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.
