Figured we could use a general thread to talk about smaller games that a lot of people probably don't play. Feel free to talk about whatever.

One I am excited about is Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2, comes out this Thursday, for the PC only I believe. Space battle strategy game set in the Warhammer 40k universe. The first one was very good and it seems like they are building upon it. Just played the demo so far, they have expanded the scope of battles which is nice. Three campaigns this time should help as well. twelve different factions, instead of the 6 in the first one. One of the best things is its only 40 bucks on steam, 35 if you preorder, and 30 if you preorder and own the first one. in this day of 60 dollar games, 30 dollars is hard to pass up. I would highly suggest it if its your type of thing.

Bought a new PC strategy game I am enjoying. Ultimate General Civil War. It scratches a big time itch I have had. You are the general commanding whichever ever side you choose. One battle impacts the next. Real simple to pick up and learn. Battles are actually challenging, rewarding, and addictive.

It's not just the big battles either.

Was feeling a bit burnt out on console gaming close to a year ago. Built my own PC and have been blown away by the amount of content and cheap prices. Some are cross platform but games I couldn’t recommend more:

Darkest Dungeon- Turn based, 2-D dungeon crawler. Tons of customizable parts and strategy. Eerie gothic theme/music. Permadeath characters. Incredible.

Talos Principle- Think Portal with some philosophy thrown in.

Subnautica- Sci-Fi survival game based in an ocean on another world. Absolutely beautiful with a surprisingly deep story. Great customization. Peaceful and at the same time terrifying.

Age of Wonders 3- Think Civ 5 with a high fantasy setting. Also turn based strategy combat and RPG elements for your “leader” and heroes.

Will have to look at the Talos Principle. Loved portal.

I have been playing one called Medieval Kingdoms War, or something like that. Made by three guys. It's a mix between Age of Empires and Total War. You have the base building aspect during battles of AoE but have control of armies and towns and diplomacy on a world map.

Graphics are 90s quality, some bugs, but it's difficult and requires more resource management than TW gets into.

Developers are still supporting it and they are working towards a coop campaign which should be good. If you got 20 bucks to spend on a PC game this might be worth looking into.

Hey Louder, dont know if you're into Final Fantasy games...seems like you would be...but I have been playing Mobius final Fantasy for 3 years and it is still awesome because they drop new content every week. It has SP, as well as MP...it is turn based with the "jobs" character dynamic if you know about that. It is free...and you can farm the in game currency as to make it F2P. I have spent quite a bit on the game, but nearly nothing since currency farming became available about a year ago.

I play only on mobile...but you can play on PC also and graphics are PS3 quality I would say. Best game I have ever played on mobile by far. Love it. We also have a forum on reddit where we ask other players questions about builds , gameplay, etc.. good community. Check it out bro

Have you played the Take Command/Scourge of War games?

I've kicked around getting another computer just to play them again.
