I enjoyed Neocore's earlier King Arthur hybrid RPG/RTS games quite a bit. They are bringing new game out set in a 'darker' King Arthur world next next year  \m/

I only liked the first title. The second title was a tremendous letdown.

I don't think anything will make that guy happy.

Wait, darker than their original duology?!  :hide:
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I tried the original, but didn't enjoy it much.  I'm not sure I've ever enjoyed many RTS titles.  This one does seem interesting.

Early access starts today....$34.99...not sure I am interested enough for that price right now unless overwhelming positive feedback.

The initial early access build seems very limited...It contains only 2 story missions, 8 additional points of interests, 7 heroes from 4 classes (with a progression cap of level 5), 3 buildings to build and upgrade in Camelot, and an intro cinematic. Quite frankly, the small party RPG aspect of the game doesn't thrill me. They have this massive opening cinematic showing battles with thousands of units and then you look at the screen shots and you have like 3 knights to control. Seems really underwhelming, just like the second title in the series. The first title was really fantastic. I don't know why they continue to stray from its formula. It really epitomized a "hidden gem".  Anyway, I'll probably pick this up eventually once it is steeply discounted, but as of right now, I have no urge to try it out.

Just got my early access code. I never picked up the 2nd Neocore King Arthur game because of the crap reviews. I'm hoping that since it is so early in the process here, there's tons more content in the works. There has to be.

I'm with Jarhead on this one.  I'm not sure why these guys feel the need to mess with a winning formula.  King Arthur 1 was a fantastic game.  I could never win it, but it was always fun while it lasted.

Yeah.  The thing is, I watched/read a full Let's Play where the guy won the game and I set all the difficulties to easy, and I still just could never win the game.  Every time, at least 3 times, I'd get to the same point where I couldn't win any of the quests, and I'd get rebels popping up all over my kingdom, and I'd just get overwhelmed.  I could never seem to keep up with the computer with recruiting or training high-level troops.  It was infuriating because I was always really enjoying the game up until it became unwinnable.

I definitely remember getting stuck at the same exact point too, every time. I bet it was the same point as you.
