64 years old, gaming all my life, using Linux since Ubuntu 8.04. Running a dual-boot Windoze 7 and Ultimate Edition, both 64-bit.
Just click on "Random" when that screen comes up, and you'll be able to select all the races for that era.
Well, I *did* buy DOM3 again, from Desura, and it was to support Desura as well as to support Illwinter. Yeah, I could have bought a relative the game, but my nephew, my only game-playing relative, is a DOTA2 fan...
Yeah, but you do get the manual from GOG; I've even suggested Linux players of 7kaa to buy the GOG version just for the manual, which can really improve understanding of this surprisingly complex game.
In fact, a number of mods adding Warhammer nations and units have been published. It is the DEEPEST stretegy game that can be found.
I bought the disc version 2 years ago and am strongly considering buying it again on Desura for the updates, which I *assume* are still coming. Besides, I have already gotten way more than $60 of gameplay from what is the best strategy game I have ever played.
When Dominions 3 is available on Desura, will Shrapnel customers be able to install using their keycodes? If not, will be be able to update through Desura? What will happen to the Shrapnel DOM3 forums?
Enquiring people want to know...
It's exciting news that Dominions 3 will soon be available on Desura. The question I have is, as a Shrapnel purchaser, will I be able to get the 3.28 update from Desura? Will I be able to reinstall from Desura using my key code?
This is my #1 favorite game; I like COE3, but DOM3 is the be-all and end-all of strategy gaming.
I remember this fondly from the old XP days. It's a game in which you have little direct control on the good guys, except to place a bounty on baddies. A lot of building and upgrading, and a lot of fun. On my wishlist, certainly.
I tried the demo and it ran on my 64-bit Ubuntu (using MATE) just fine. I bought it immediately. It appears that more, uh, GAME is in this, unlike Populous. Yes, terraforming is a little sketchy still (but I notice I canna terraform the enemy's land, which is As It Should Be), but I am impressed with this newest example of the New Age of Low-End Graphics (pioneered with the Pretender-like Dominions 3) filled chock-full of Gaming Goodness.
Glad I bought it on Desura for the timely updates, too.
This looks like POPULOUS, only not with the same basic scenario over and over. I'm buying!
I was a fan of this back when Windows 98 was new; no other RTS game featured what this baby has, and none (with the exception of Seven Kingdoms II) has ever tried what this game does. It's a complete winner, even with its rough edges.
Yes, just as in Dominions 3, you right-click on a unit to see the text box.
Ooh, it's better-looking that Dominions 3, has terrific music, and is just as much fun to play as Dominions 3, with just as much replay value. GET IT!
Preordered and it's 12 days away!
Now I'm waiting for Conquest of Elysium 3. I preordered it and it comes on the 20th.
This will be the best turn-based strategy game since...Dominions 3?
Been playing Dominions 3 over just about everything else...
