Dave + Vinny = VICTORY.

Posted by KarlPilkington

Yay!


Posted by SomeDeliCook

In the time I've spent playing With Fire and Sword, so far Warband is better IMO

A new QL just as I sit down to have lunch. You have read my mind once more GB.

Exactly what I wanted to hear. LETS DO THIS.

One of the most awesome indie RPG/strategy game series in a long, long time, and a game I don't think the mainstream press (Giant Bomb included, I guess) have really been able to do justice to, on account of its functional-but-dated visuals and interface.

Unfortunately TaleWorlds have started to get lazy... they need to do more than just rehash the same old stuff again and again.  I love the series, but damn, even this is starting to look just a bit stale.  Warband was already a bit long in the tooth, but it seems like they're settling for minor expansions rather than fixing some of the more obvious flaws in the series.  I know they're a tiny developer, but it's still a shame.

I really, really like these games.  No other developer really does anything like them.

I'm not too sure about Fire and Sword. The bigger environments are great, but there's plenty of warband mods with guns, so that's not all that exciting to me. I see the potential in the bigger areas, though. If that was an update to their engine, that could be a great boon to any modder.


Also,  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dse_aGJuwn8 was the video Rorie mentioned in TNT. And it's amazing.

I would love this in a Romance of the Three Kingdoms setting!

Let's TNT this bitch!

Posted by MarioBoza

This game seems like a lot of fun. Totally buying it now. Thanks for this quick look Dave & Vinny! =D

Posted by LutonHatter

Man, now I really want to play some Pirates!

Posted by McQuinn

I've seen this before... Dave!

@Grondoth:  Think it's still warband engine based off what they say on their site.

Were there any mods that fix up the UI to not look so bad on widescreen monitors?

I knew you guys would do this one!...I just got warband and it's amazing

Posted by dragonzord

Good to see Vinny's eye didn't explode

Posted by StandStrong

Can't remember the last time I saw a weekend QL? Great!

Posted by Zelnox

I also prefer the setting of Warband than Fire and Sword.

KING OF SWEDEN CAPTURED THE CASTLE

Posted by MeatSim

Well this looks frustrating but still fun.

Posted by Driadon

Why didn't Dave go get people from villiages? You can ask a group of people from towns to join your band. They aren't very skilled at first, but you get a lot!


...Unless they took that out from the recent games.
Posted by RinseWashRepeat

This is so bad. Thanks to Vinny and Dave for making this great...

There's a mod for the original Mount & Blade that's based on that.
Edited by DonPixel

Ok I don't know much about that game, Might be good and indie and stuff... But common that looks pretty baaaddd . 

Posted by JakeTaylor

Love me some Mount and Blade.

Edited by Wonloong

500 Wiiware points says that Dave'll somehow design the UI for the next xpac/version of this game.

Posted by TehJedicake

Why so many haters, who cares about the graphics, this game has so much skill factor in it

Posted by Rox360

Heh, silly Dave and also Vinny. "Thaler" is where "dollar" comes from! Feel free to pronounce them the same.  It's close enough, and they mean the exact same thing.

Posted by Karkarov

You guys suck at mount and blade ;p.  I have read reviews by M&B vets though that do say this game is much harder than older ones at the start though.

Posted by President_Barackbar

$15 for what is essentially a Warband mod doesn't seem like a good deal to me.

Posted by EveretteScott
Posted by Moonling

This would make a great TNT

Posted by darkwingduck

been waiting for this! still love me some Mount and Blade!

Posted by Agent47
@darkwingduck: Yes especially when warband turned into a pretty funny quick look.
Posted by RecSpec

I played this for awhile then went back to Warband.

Will probably go back to WFAS when some mods come out.

I forgot how much of a bitch it is to get going.

That video is some of the most amazing things I've seen in a multiplayer game. Reminded me of the awesome times when I played multiplayer ArmA on custom mission maps, sitting in vent and taking orders.

Glad to see more QL with Dave & Vinny, seeing this makes me want to play Sid Meir's Pirates instead though. This just seems way too complex for me but enjoy dipping into games set before 1700s like SM Pirates.So bloody bizarre though to see this having multiplayer, last thing I would have expected for it. Wonder if they all all kinds of crazy mods like other classic multiplayer pc games.

Edit: yes I forgot that the last one has multiplayer too, never played Mount & Blade.

Posted by HydraHam

That's it.. im building a pc to play this game.

Anyone know a good PC i can build for 600-800 bucks?

Posted by Beforet

This game is so janky looking, but at the same time it is such a PC-ass PC game. There's something compelling about all of it.
